        La Corveta Atrevida entre Bancas de nieve la Noche del 28, de Enero de 1794, estando en Latitud S. 52º 13' y Longitud 42º 7' Ocidental de Cadiz

      1800 - Extremely rare plate showing the path of the Malaspina expedition through the Strait of Magellan N.d. [c.1800]. Madrid. Aquatint. 335 x 510 mm. 2,400 $ One of the few available works depicting the five-year scientific expedition of Spanish naval officer Allesandro Malaspina. In that exploration Malaspina and Jose de Bustamente commanded two frigates of approximately 118 feet in length, the Descubierta and the Atrevida and departed from Cadiz, Spain on July 30, 1789. The expedition sailed through the Pacific Ocean, exploring and mapping much of the west coast of the Americas from Cape Horn to the Gulf of Alaska, crossing to Guam and the Philippines, and stopped in both New Zealand and Australia. The view shows the corvette Atrevida navigating between icebergs at night. The expedition carried aboard some of Spain's top scientists, as well as at least three artists: Brambila, Jose Guio, and Tomas de Suria. This intaglio plate shows the Atrevida among large ice flows. Map coordinates are based on a Prime Meridian in Cadiz, Spain but the the location is somewhere very near the Malvinas (Falkland Islands), and by the stated date of 1794 we know this was the second-to-last stop of the 62 month voyage. Last known sale of this engraving was in 1992. Only two examples are found on the Internet, one at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London.

        Ezo no Kuni Zenzu. Complete Map of Ezo].

      (circa1800). - Large coloured manuscript map of Ezo, modern day Hokkaido, showing the northeastern tip of Honshu, Manchuria as a large landmass along the lower border, and the island of Sakhalin. The Russian territory of Kamchatska is also shown. 50.5 x 83.5cm. Folds into plain paper covers measuring 25.5 x 17cm, card folder worn and insect damaged. Some scattered insect damage but overall a good copy. This map is an "underground" manuscript copy of one of the five maps published to accompany the highly controversial Japanese book 'Sangoku tsüran zusetsu' by Hayashi Shihei. Published in 1785 this work described the geography and customs of three countries - Kankoku (Korea), Yezo or Ezo (present day Hokkaido), and Ryükyü (present day Okinawa). At the time of its publication Ha Yezo was only partially occupied by the Tokugawa government and although from 1609 Ryükyü was in reality under the control of the Shimazu clan in Satsuma (present Kagoshima Prefecture), the Shimazu clan allowed it to be an independent country superficially. In his notes on this map of Ezo or Hokkaido, Hayashi discusses the sea lanes indicated by dotted lines and notes "Since, in recent years, men of Orosha [Russians] have taken possession of the territory east of Tartary, this land is called Orosha, or Kamusasuka. Also since the Russians all wear red coats, the residents of Ezo call it Red Ezo in their dialect." Following the publication of 'Sangoku tsüran zusetsu' the authorities ordered the banning of the publication and the destruction of the woodblocks used to print the book and maps. Hayashi Shihei was imprisoned as his work was regarded as an offence against Japan's seclusion policies of the time. He died the following year. However Japanese interest in the outside world, and Hayashi Shihei's work continued throughout the Edo period and although very few copies of the published work were in existence "underground" manuscript copies were made and passed around among trusted friends.

        Le dragon rouge, ou l'art de commander les esprits célestes, aériens, terrestres, infernaux avec le vrai secret de faire parler les morts; de gagner toutes les fois qu'on met aux loteries; de découvrir les Trésors, etc. etc. 1521

      1800 - Dans sa brochure d'origine Un volume in-16 (137x83 mm), 72 pages Dos abimé L'une des toutes premières éditions de ce célèbre grimoire de magie. S'inspirant fortement des Clavicules de Salomon et bien qu'antidateé, soit de 1521 soit de 1522, ce n'est en fait qu'à la fin du XVIII° ou au début du XIX° siècle qu'est publié pour la première fois le "Dragon Rouge". Certainement en raison de la rareté des toutes premières éditions, mais aussi en l'absence de marque d'éditeur de lieu d'impression, les bibliographes n'ont pas démêlé la chronologie ni même simplement décrit avec précision les différents tirages. Yve-Plessis, Guaita, Dorbon et même Coumont pourtant habituellement plus détaillé brillent par l'absence de collation pour les premières éditions de cet ouvrage. Pour notre part, d'après les exemplaires que nous avons pu voir passer et ceux recensés dans les bibliothèques publiques, nous avons pu identifiés plusieurs éditions différentes (ou tirage différents). Tout d'abord, avec le titre identique à notre exemplaire, mais sans fleuron à la page de titre, au frontispice, le "Diable" avec un anneau autour du coup et un autre dans la main droite, au verso du frontispice un faux titre et 107 pages. Un autre exemplaire avec le frontispice identique au notre, le titre avec un seul "etc." à la fin et avec la date 1522, sans fleuron de titre . 107 pages. Un autre : avec le titre se terminant par "etc., etc.," et 1522. Page de titre et frontispice en noir et non en rouge, fleuron au titre différent du notre et frontispice quasiment identique (sans l'arbrisseau), en 95 pages. Notre exemplaire est bien complet en 72 pages, le texte est identique mais avec une police de caractère plus petite, c'est le seul exemplaire dont nous avons connaissance avec ces caractéristiques. Le Dragon Rouge un grimoire satanique, incontestablement un chef-d’œuvre en matière de magie noire, d'après Eliphas Levi. Rare exemplaire de l'une des première édition du Dragon Rouge, dans son état d'origine. ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Original wrappers. 16mo (137x83 mm), 72 pages Spine chipped One of the first edition edition of this famous Groimoire.

        De l'esprit des choses, ou coup-d'oeil philosophique sur la nature des êtres et sur l'objet de leur existence; Ouvrage dans lequel on considère l'homme comme étant le mot de toutes les énigmes.

Edition originale et unique édition du plus rare des ouvrages de L.-C. de Saint-Martin (selon Caillet) et "l’un des plus beaux textes du Philosophe inconnu" (selon sa biographe Nicole Jacques-Lefèvre). Cet essai, l’un des plus mystérieux qu’il composa, lui fut inspiré par la lecture du ‘De signatura rerum’ de Jakob Böhme "L'auteur cherche à atteindre la raison la plus profonde de chacune des choses qui frappent nos regards, soit dans l'ordre de la nature, soit même dans celui des mœurs, des coutumes, etc." (Franck, ‘Dictionnaire des sciences philosophiques’, 1849, IV, p. 129). "Il déclare que l'homme, créé à l'image et à la ressemblance de Dieu, peut pénétrer au sein de l'Etre, qui se trouve caché dans la création tout entière et qu'à cause de sa vue intérieure claire, il est capable de voir et de reconnaître les vérités de Dieu déposées dans la nature" (S. et Z. Coszczynski). (Caillet, n°9773. Dorbon, n°4310. Nicole Jacques-Lefèvre, ‘L.-C. de Saint-Martin ’, Bibliographie p. 277. Monglond, V, 369). Reliure légèrement frottée.

        The ships Erebus and Terror in the Arctic]. [England?, ca. 1850?]. Oil painting on canvas (65.5 x 91 cm), showing 2 ships in a rough sea amid dangerous rocks and ice. Later mounted on another canvas and stretched over a wooden frame, with a handwritten note about the painting pasted on the back.

      - Cf. Howgego, 1800-1850, P9, R27 & F21. A mid-19th-century oil painting depicting two ships (3-masted barks) in a rough sea amid dangerous rocky and icy cliffs, mountains and outcroppings. Pasted to the back is an old slip of paper with a note (the parts of the text in parentheses are lost, but have been filled in based on an earlier transcription): "The sailing ships ('Erebus' and 'Terror') passing through the Davis Straig(ht) in 1846 [the 6 later "corrected" to 7]. It was on this expedition that Sir John Franklin discovered the North West Passage, and in which he lost his life". In fact Franklin sailed these two ships through Davis Strait in 1845, passed on through Lancaster Sound in search of a Northwest Passage and spent the winter on Beechey Island. In 1846 he and his expedition made their way through (using the modern names) Peel Sound and Franklin Strait into McClintock Channel, where they got caught in the ice near King William Island. Most of the crew died there, including Franklin in 1847. A few made it on foot to the mainland but were unable to reach any outpost. The last died in 1848. Since no one who saw the ships in these waters survived, the anonymous artist who made the present painting appears to have turned to an 1847 painting of the same ships by John Wilson Carmichael in London, though he did not copy it. Carmichael had earlier made a drawing of an expedition in search of the Northwest Passage by William Edward Parry (who made three expeditions in the years 1819 to 1825, each with two ships), but in 1847 he used parts of his existing Arctic scene as models for the composition of a new painting showing an Antarctic scene of James Clark Ross's voyage with the ships Erebus and Terror in 1842: "'Erebus' and 'Terror' in the Antarctic". Carmichael's drawing and painting survive at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. The central ship in the present painting follows that in Carmichael's painting quite closely and the second ship more distantly. The rocks and ice are similar in general appearance and arrangement but quite different in detail.With some restorations along the edges of the painting and a small scuffmark near the foot toward the left, but generally in good condition.

        Narrative of Mons. de Chaumereix, a naval officer, who escaped from the massacres of Aurai & Vannes, after the expedition of Quiberon. To which are added, some observations on the public opinion in Brittany. Translated from the French, by the Rev. Charles Lefebvre, Teacher of the French Language, Witton-Le-Wear.

      Sunderland: printed for the translator by James Graham, and sold by L. Pennington, Durham; William Charnley, Newcastle; W. Barnes, North Shields; and W. Elstob, Stockton. 1800 - 50pp. 8vo. Uncut; some foxing & occasional browning. Disbound. ESTC T114266, BL and York University only. During the French Revolution the peasants in the department of Vendée remained Royalist and first rose against the revolutionary National Convention in 1793. On June 27, 1795, a British fleet landed 3,600 French émigrés on the Quiberon Peninsula, Brittany, where they joined thousands of other Royalists. But they had no positive leadership, and the Revolutionary army sent to the region destroyed the Vendée 'army' in a series of engagements. About 700 rebels were identified as émigrés and summarily executed; 1,800 returned to England, including Chaumareix who although imprisoned managed to escape and evaded recapture until 20th September when he reached the English squadron under Sir John Warren. His account was first published in London in 1795, although with a different title wording, and this may be a variant translation. The translator Charles Lefebvre was most likely a French émigré, stirred to have his own version printed and published locally.

        Historie der boecaniers, of vrybuyters van America.Amsterdam, Nicolaas ten Hoorn, 1700. 3 parts (paginated as 2) in 1 volume. 4to. With an engraved title-page, a folding engraved map of South and Central America, and 7 engraved plates (1 folding). Red (goatskin) morocco (ca. 1920), with richly gold tooled turn-ins, double fillets on board edges, gilt edges, by the French Binders of Garden City, N.Y., the fourth incarnation of Robert Hoe's famous Club Bindery, which almost single-handedly pioneered fine binding in America.

      - Alden & Landis 700/11; Sabin 23469; cf. Howgego, to 1800, E-39 (other editions); cf. H. de la Fontaine Verwey, "The ship's surgeon Exquemelin and his book on the buccaneers", in: Quaerendo IV (1974), pp. 109-131; for the bindery: T. Boss & M. Antonetti, Bound to be the best: The Club Bindery. Catalogue of an exhibition at the Grolier Club (2004). Exquemelin (ca. 1645-1707) began his career in service of the French West India Company on a 1666 voyage to Tortuga in the Caribbean. There he went into the service of the notorious Welsh privateer Henry Morgan. He returned to Europe ca. 1674 and made a new career as a reputable surgeon in Amsterdam, where he wrote the present book. The text is divided into three parts. The first tells of the French voyage to the West Indies in 1666 and describes the circumstances there. The second recounts the dreadful deeds of the Caribbean pirates, especially François l'Olonnais and Henry Morgan, and the third describes the burning and looting of Panama City by Morgan's unruly men.In 1895 a group of Grolier Club members led by Robert Hoe, brought some of the most skilled European (mostly French) binding craftsmen to America and founded the Club Bindery. Its work "surpassed - in design, forwarding, and finishing - anything that had been produced in the United States until then" (Antonetti). After Robert Hoe’s dead the bindery reincarnated as the French Binders of Garden City, New York. With a water stain in the lower right corner throughout, a couple smudges and specks, and the map with a small restored tear, otherwise a good copy. Some very minor wear along the board edges and a bit more noticeably along the hinges and the raised bands, otherwise the binding is in very good condition.

Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Corners slightly rubbed. Some foxing thoughout book. Slight water damage to some of the text pages. Félix-Archimède Pouchet (August 26, 1800, in Rouen, France to December 6, 1872) was a French naturalist and a leading proponent of spontaneous generation of life from non-living materials, and as such an opponent of Louis Pasteur's germ theory. He was the father of Georges Pouchet (18331894), a professor of comparative anatomy. From 1828 he was director of the Rouen Museum of Natural History and the Rouen Jardin des Plantes. Later, in 1838, he became professor at the School of Medicine at Rouen. His major scientific work Hétérogénie was published in 1859. He also wrote a layperson's encyclopedia The Universe, published in 1870, which gives an overview of the sciences, but in which Pouchet ridicules Louis Pasteur's theories (calling them panspermism) and atomic theory. In 1847 Felix-Archimede Pouchet effectively launched the study of the physiology of cytology. (Wikipedia).

        Scenes of the Sanoya House at Yoshiwara.

      1800 - Watercolour on silk. Horizontal scroll measuring ca. 35.5x500cm, rich brocade mounting on the outside (minor wear), gold leaf paper embossed with flower design inside. Overall in very good condition. Edo, ca. The present scroll shows scenes of geisha from the Sanoya house in the Yoshiwara, the main brothel area north of Asakusa in Edo. It portrays the rituals and customs of the courtesans both inside and outside the house, from washing to putting on make-up, entertaining guests, playing the shamisen etc. Interestingly, people are not drawn to scale, which means that the important characters are larger than their young attendants (kamuro) or passers-by. This makes for a pleasing shift in perspectives as you view the scroll. We have tentatively ascribed the scenes to the Sanoya house based on the crest on the curtain (noren) in front of the entrance.

Bookplate of George Mason La Monte (1863–1927) businessman, philanthropist and Democratic politician; leather gilt book label of Walter Chrysler (1875–1940), founder of Chrysler Corporation. Extremities a little worn, joint splitting at the top, pale staining to covers from an earlier attempt to polish the binding, nevertheless a good copy: with the fly-title [a2], leaves [a4] (publishers' advertisement /cast list) and terminal advertisement leaf [P4] in part one; bound without the blank (or half-title?) to part two, but with the terminal advertisement leaves [P7] and [P8].

First edition in English, following the German edition of the same year, and combining the work of two great figures of the Romantic era: Coleridge and Schiller. The latter had a profound influence on Coleridge, who translated Schiller here into English blank verse, and "it is clearly from the two great plays at either end of [Schiller's] career – Die Räuber and Wallenstein – that Coleridge learnt most" (Matthew Scott, "Coleridge and Schiller", in The Oxford Handbook of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, p. 542). In a letter to Robert Southey, written as early as 1794, Coleridge wrote "My God! Southey! Who is this Schiller? This convulser of the heart?" [Attributes: First Edition]

      Berlin, Friedrich Maurer, 1797-1800. - Erste Ausgabe der amüsanten frühromantischen Satirensammlung von Tiecks Schwager, mit zahlreichen erotischen Passagen, geistreicher Kritik am Kulturbetrieb, Ausfällen gegen Philosophen wie Fichte und Schelling sowie gegen Iffland und sein Theater. – Tieck schrieb die Einleitung zu Band 1 und die Theater- und Literatursatire 'Die verkehrte Welt', die auf ein gleichnamiges Stück in Weises 'Zittauischem Theatrum' zurückgeht. Sie "richtet sich ebenso gegen den Utilitarismus der Aufklärung wie gegen den trivialen Geschmack des zeitgenössischen Publikums . Die an Aristophanes, Fletcher, Ben Jonson und Gozzi geschulte Technik der Illusionsdurchbrechung und des Aus-der-Rolle-Fallens wird zum Motor der Satire . Das Paradoxon wird zum funktionalen Bestandteil der Bühne . Aufklärung und Romantik verhalten sich zueinander wie Prosa und Vers, satirische Szenen stehen neben rein poetischen" (KNLL). Für den Abdruck in den 'Schriften' wurde 'Die verkehrte Welt', wie die meisten Schauspiele von Tieck, überarbeitet. Enthält außerdem: Geschichte eines Mannes welcher mit seinem Verstande auf das Reine gekommen – Sechs Stunden aus Finks Leben – Die Witzlinge – Der Besessene – Die Reise durch das Gotfriedland. „Vollständige Exemplare mit allen 3 Teilen gehören zu den allergrößten Seltenheiten" (C.

      Jena, Friedrich Frommann, 1800. - Seltene erste Ausgabe der kurzlebigen Zeitschrift, deren Beiträge zumeist vom Herausgeber selbst stammen. "Wie die Gebrüder Schlegel sich im 'Athenäum' ein Sprachrohr für ihre literarischen Arbeiten schufen, so war auch L. Tieck mit dem 'Poetischen Journal' auf bestem Wege, sich ein Organ für den eigenen Hausgebrauch zu schaffen, das der Kunst und der Poesie gewidmet sein sollte . Im Geiste der Schlegel verurteilte er ‚die literarische Pöbelherrschaft in Deutschland‘, deren Kritik auch vor Goethes 'Wilhelm Meister' und 'Hermann und Dorothea' nicht halt macht und 'die Verworrenheit eines Zeitalters beurteilen lehrt, in welchem dergleichen Absurditäten möglich sind'" (Kirchner, Geschichte des deutschen Zeitschriftenwesens, 1958, Bd I, S. 256). Das 'Journal' enthält neben der Übersetzung eines Lustspiels von Ben Jonson die beiden wichtigen 'Briefe über W. Shakspeare', die Tiecks fortwährende Shakespeare-Studien dokumentieren. "Die Freundschaftssonette, die den Band beschließen, sind Ausdruck der Integration dieser lyrischen Gattung in Tiecks romantische Dichtung und – fast zum letzten Mal! – der gemeinsamen Zielsetzung der Berliner und Jenaer Romantik . Der Aufsatz (des Indologen Fr. Majer) 'Ueber die mythologischen Dichtungen der Indier' gilt als bedeutende Vorstufe für die romantische Indologie" (Paulin, Metzler, S. 58). Weitere Beiträge Tiecks wenden sich in "teils polemisch-satirischer, teils in humorvoller und witziger Form gegen die Aufklärung im Sinne Nicolais, gegen das Rezensionswesen und das Theater der Gegenwart" (Kirchner, S. 257). In der nirgends wieder abgedruckten Einleitung formuliert Tieck das Wesen der Poesie aus (früh-)romantischer Sicht. – Wie immer teils stärker gebräunt und mit Leimschatten, dennoch schönes Exemplar. – Goed.

        Dya-Na-Sore oder die Wanderer. Erster bis Fünfter Band [kmpl.]. Neue Aufl.

      Leipzig, Schaumburg und Comp., 1800. - 432 S., mit Frontispiz nach V. Kininger / 471 S. / 492 S. / 454 S., 2 Bll. / 550 S., 1 Bl.; jew. mit gest. Titelvignette von J. Wertheim u. Schlussvignette von K. Ponheimer, Kl.-8°, Marmoriertes Halbleder d. Zt. mit goldgepr. Rückenornamenten (5 Bde.) Bloch 2/2135 (zur EA 1787); Ackermann V/216; Wolfstieg 41514; Kloss 3964; Taute 2662; Goedeke V,460: "Sein nach Indien u. Tibet verlegter Roman Dya-Na-Sore behandelt in lyrisch-traumhafter Verzückung frmrische Ideen." - Maßgebliche, auf fünf Bände vermehrte, Ausgabe von letzter Hand, deren Inhalt zu Zeiten der Französischen Revolution so bedenklich erschien, dass das Werk in Wien konfisziert u. verboten wurde. - Dazu Arno Schmidt in "Dya na sore. Gespräche in einer Bibliothek": Das Werk "gehört durchaus zur Prima Plana unserer deutschen Literatur. Gewiß, ein Zwitter von Abhandlung und Erzählung; die Mitte zwischen Platons schon zitierter 'Politeia' und dem 'Zarathustra'. So glänzend hätte es in die Hitlerei gepaßt, daß es völlig unverständlich bleibt, warum dieses Buch 1933 nicht als allererstes neu aufgelegt wurde." (S.19). Während Wolfgang Harich in "Jean Pauls Revolutionsdichtung" die politischen Absichten des Autors als hohe demokratische Revolution einstuft. - Einbände leicht bestossen, berieben u. tlw. mit Wurmspuren; sonst schöne u. wohlerhaltene Expl.
