      London: Printed for the Author; and Sold By Champante and Whitrow .... And at the British Directory-Office, [c. 1800]. Two volumes. 4to. Half-calf & marbled boards, olive coated end papers. [1130] pp., continuously paged. Spines have been covered with modern plastic tape, repairs to inner hinges, wear to corners, scattered foxing, generally very good otherwise. Covers are mostly detached, held in place by tape. Thirty-one engraved plates (30 called for, all present). One plate, a portrait of Sibly, has been mounted on a bound-in leaf (possibly supplied from another copy or edition - it is not represented in the list of plates at the end of Volume II, but the typography suggests that it belongs here). First published in 1784, this book was issued under several titles and combinations of titles; this one has a title page for Part II (it is pg. 275 in Vol I), with the title: "An Illustration of the Celestial Science of Astrology. Part the Second". .... London, [np], 1798. The main title page in Volume II has a title slightly different from that in Volume I: "A complete Illustration of the Astrological and Occult Sciences ...." and the imprint states: "Printed for the Proprietor ....", instead of the Author. The title page for the third part (it is page 915 in Volume II) bears the same title as that of the second part, but is dated 1792. The title page for the fourth part (it is page 1057 in Volume II) uses the same title as the main title page of Volume II, and the same imprint, undated. Despite existing in a variety of forms, complete copies are not common. The plate of Edward Kelly invoking the Spirit of a Deceased Person is notable, and present here in nice condition. . Half-Leather. Good +.

        Expériences sur la circulation observée dans l'universalité du système vasculaire ; les phénomènes de la circulation languissante ; les mouvemens du sang indépendans de l'action du coeur ; la pulsation des artères

      Paris, Maradan, An 8 [1800]. frontipisce, (4) et 410 pages broché, sous couverture d'attente de l'époque, pièce de titre au dos An 8 [1800], An 8 [1800], in - 8, frontipisce, (4) et 410 pages, broché, sous couverture d'attente de l'époque, pièce de titre au dos, Première édition française, procurée par Joseph Tourdes, et précédée d'une inédite Vie littéraire de l'auteur. L'édition originale italienne fut publiée en 1773 à Modène sous le titre, De' fenomeni della circolazione, qui faisait suite à une première publication (1768) de Spallanzani sur le même sujet, Dell'azione del cuore nei vasi sanguigni. Dans ces quatre mémoires qui portent sur le mouvement de la circulation sanguine, Spallanzani étudie le rôle le rôle de la circulation pour toutes les époques du développement du corps humain. Ainsi, son étude du système vasculaire du cordon ombilical chez l'embryon de poussin lui permit d'établir, pour la première fois, l'existence d'anastomoses microvasculaires chez un mammifère à sang chaud. Il a également étudié les effets de la croissance et de la gravité sur le système circulatoire. Enfin, il a pu prouver que le pouls était causé par une pression latérale sur la paroi artérielle provenant d'impulsions cardiaques. En frontispice, une gravure représente le microscope de Lyonnet, que le naturaliste hollandais utilisait dès la fin des années 1750 pour ses études d'Histoire Naturelle. On sait que Spallanzani utilisa lui aussi ce microscope simple de naturaliste. Bon exemplaire dans son fragile brochage d'origine portant l'estampille, annulée, de l'Institut Catholique de Paris.

Jean - Baptiste de Lamark (1744 - 1829) naturaliste, professeur de zoologie au Muséum d'histoire naturelle, membre de l'Académie royale des Sciences. La météorologie est le premier domaine scientifique au sujet duquel Lamarck a écrit un mémoire, par ailleurs bien reçu par l'Académie."In 1797, he began publishing articles on meteorology and attempting to provide theoretical explanations for factors causing weather change".Évolutionniste, il ne réussit pas à prouver sa théorie par l'expérience. Cependant, l'étude de la météorologie nourrit sa théorie de l'évolution : "climate was an important factor in his theory , it would be important to seek the laws regulating changes in climate and therefore perhaps be able to predict or understand changes in organisms more fully" (DSB p.587 - 588) Ouvrages intéressants, dont la publication fut arrêtée suite aux reproches de Napoléon.

        Abdollatiphi Historiae aegypti compendium, arabice et latine.

      Oxford, J. Cooke, Hanwell & Parker, 1800. - Small folio (226 x 268 mm). (18), (V)-XXXII, 321, (55) pp. Contemp. full calf with later rebacked giltstamped spine. Abd al-Latif's graphic and detailed "Account of Egypt" in the original Arabic, here edited with a Latin translation (based on that of Edward Pococke the younger) by Joseph White (1745-1814). The Baghdad-born Abd al-Latif (1162-1231), a celebrated physician, historian, Egyptologist and traveller, was one of the most voluminous writers of the Near East in his time. One of the earliest works on Egyptology, this crucial work contains detailed descriptions of ancient Egyptian monuments, as well as a vivid description of a famine caused, during the author's residence in Egypt, by the Nile failing to overflow its banks. On this occasion Al-Latif had opportunity to observe and examine a large number of corpses - one of the earliest examples of a postmortem autopsy. - The Arabic manuscript was discovered in 1665 by Edward Pococke and preserved at the Bodleian Library. Pococke published the Arabic manuscript in the 1680s, and his son translated the work into Latin, though he was only able to publish less than half of his work. In 1800, Joseph White published it (with his own additions) in this present edition, which was then translated into French by De Sacy in 1810. - Bookplate of the City of York Public Library on front pastedown; small stamp of the Yorkshire Philosophical Society on title page.

Oblong 8vo (5.75 x 7.25 inches), contemporary cloth and plain boards; engraved title and 52 leaves printed with copperplate engravings on versos, engravings measure approx. 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Apparently an expanded reprint of John Boydell's 1775 "Passion" which was comprised of 20 pages of text and 35 engravings. The present copy omits the text and adds 17 engravings: 14 at the beginning signed in the plate by T. Mills and 3 at the end signed Isaac Taylor. John Boydell is best remembered for his "Boydell Shakespeare Gallery" which brought together the efforts of the best artists and engravers of the day in a magnificent illustrated edition of the works of William Shakespeare. Boydell's nephew and partner, Josiah Boydell (1752-1815), who contributed several paintings to the Shakespeare Gallery, continued the publishing business after his uncle's death and it is likely that the present volume was produced by him. Rare; OCLC/Worlcat locates only 1 copy.

        Aus der Schöpfung von Herrn J. Haydn." Autogr. musical manuscript.

      Arnsdorf, 6. X. 1800. - Oblong folio. 5 pp. (4 ff., a full sheet folded twice). Four voices with lyrics. From part II of Joseph Haydn's oratorio: the trio "Zu dir, o Herr, blickt alles auf" ("Poco Adagio"), arranged by the composer's brother for his Arnsdorf male quartet. The caption as well as the postscript (with a statement of provenance) are added by the flautist and violist Georg Johann Schinn (1768-1833), a student and friend of Michael Haydn's: "Von Herrn M. Haydn für 4 Männerstimmen arrangirt zu Armsdorf am 6ten October 1800. Vom Herrn P. Werigand Rettensteiner Pfarrer in Armsdorf die Original Partitur davon erhalten als Hochzeitgeschenk im 2. Dezbr. 1802". - From 1763 onwards, Joseph Haydn's younger brother served for 40 years as leader of the orchestra of Sigismund von Schrattenbach, the Salzburg Archbishop. The Arnsdorfer Benedictine monk Rettensteiner was a close friend who prepared German lyrics, copies, and adaptations for the male choir. For Michael Haydn he also translated numerous pieces of Latin liturgical music into German and collected material on Haydn's life and works. Much of this was used for the earliest biography of Michael Haydn, published by Schinn in 1808 (in collaboration with F. J. Otter). - Traces of an old vertical fold. Untrimmed, the final two leaves remaining uncut.

        Supplement to the American Mercury: -- December 25, 1800. Convention Between the French Republic and the United States of America

      Elisha Babcock], [Hartford 1800 - Text in four columns. Usual folds. A newspaper extra broadside printing of the treaty that ended the Quasi-War with France. Starting in 1796, French privateers began seizing American ships and their cargo in reaction to the United States refusing to pay down its debt with France from the Revolution, as well as the economic ramifications of Jay's Treaty with Great Britain. By 1798, the relationship between the countries had fallen into all but an undeclared naval war. However, with the outbreak of the Napoleonic wars between France and Great Britain, it became beneficial for both the U.S. and France for the U.S. to remain neutral and the present treaty was negotiated. Among the terms of the treaty, known alternatively as the Convention of 1800 or the Treaty of Mortefontaine, were the return of public ships captured during the Quasi-War and the free passage for all goods. Scarce, with only the Clements Library copy cited by OCLC.

Contemporary black quarter cloth, marbled paper sides, spine in asymmetric compartments separated by rolled bands in gilt and blind, title direct to second gilt, blue speckled edges.

Jäsche, Kant's Logik "treats topics such as the so-called laws of thinking (including the laws of identity, contradiction and tertium not datur) and 'the logical perfection of cognition'," and was a major influence on Hegel, whose own Wissenschaft der Logik was published between 1812 and 1816 (De Laurentiis & Edwards, eds, The Bloomsbury Companion to Hegel, p.74).

        Visions et revelations de Mr. Gleyo missionnaire en Chine. Pendant les huit années quil a eté en prison pour la cause de la religion, depuis l’an 1769 jusqu'en l’an 1777.

      [Probably France, ca. 1800]. - Manuscript (brown ink) on paper. 2 vols. 8vo. (Title page), 445 (but: 444) pp. (Title page), 446-764 pp., 91, (2) pp. Bound in 18th-century vellum manuscript over boards. All edges red. A manuscript written in a single, unidentified hand during the last years of the 18th century, describing Gleyo's imprisonment in Ching-Tou, then Yuin-Tchang. - J.-F. Gleyo was born in Saint-Brieuc, the son of master mariner François Gleyo, and became a Priest of St. Sulpice. He sailed from Lorient to China in 1764, first arriving in Macao, where he learned Chinese and became associated with the evangelical work of the missionary Alary. In 1769 he was denounced and accused of links with the Pélén-Kiao rebels. Imprisoned and abused for several years, he owed his survival to his faith and mystical visions. He was released in 1777 after a Portuguese Jesuit mathematician intervened with the Emperor and resumed his apostolic labours. In his General History of the Foreign Missions, Launay states of Gleyo that "he recalls the great contemplatives, the most intrepid apostles, saints, and other confessors of the faith." The present manuscript recounts his encarceration and the consolations he received from heaven. It is sprinkled with Latin sentences and Chinese terms (especially in his letters written to Jean-Martin Moÿe after his release, included as a final section at the end of the second volume, with separate page numbers). The letters were published in the famous Jesuit collection of "Lettres édifiantes et curieuses". The original manuscript is kept in the Archives des Séminaires des Missions Étrangères, and a copy by various hands exists in the library of the Seminary of St. Sulpice; it is very likely that the present manuscript was copied from one of these sources. It is not listed in the catalogue of Manuscripts in the National Library and is thus of the utmost rarity. - Provenance: from the library of Jean R. Perrette with his bookplate on the pastedown.

        Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier. „Der Bergbau“.

      wohl Bà hmen, um 1800. - circa 32,5 x 21 cm. 316 Seiten, 6 Blatt, 14 weisse Blatt Halb-Leder d. Zt. "Umfangreiche Handschrift, deren längerer erster Teil angeblich aus einer Abschrift besteht eines "älteren Manuskriptes als Abhandlung und Unterricht über alle beim Bergbaue vorkommenden Gegenstände und Personen für mich Ant. Phil. Bà hm.“ Die Handschrift ist von einer Hand und endet auf S. 312. Ob der Text genau so auch verà ffentlicht ist, konnten wir nicht feststellen. Der Text behandelt Metalle und Gesteine, den Bau von Stollen und Gruben, die Einteilung der Zeche, Anbrüche, die verschiedenen Arbeiter und ihre Aufgaben, Ausbeute und Ãœberschuss, Waschen und Aufbereiten, das Schmelzen vermischter Erze, Bau verschiedener Öfen etc. Besonderen Wert gewinnt das Manuskript dann durch ein angehängtes Kapitel, eine „Kurze Uibersicht des joachimsthaler Amalgamir Werkes“. Dieses ist von einer anderen Hand geschrieben und beginnt: „Die von dem H. Hofrathe Baron v. Born in Deutschland erfundne und in dem Jahre 1786 von dem k. k. Berginspektor und Gubernial-Raths H. v. Rà ßler in Joachimsthal eingeführte, und seit dieser Zeit so mannigfaltige Abänderungen erlittene Amalgamation enthält folgende Arbeiten.“ - Folgt eine genaue Beschreibung der in Joachimsthal angewendeten Techniken, am Schluss datiert und signiert „Joachimsthal am 3. November 1806 Anton Hellmich k. k. Amalgamationsverwalter.“ Anton Ignaz Hellmich wurde laut dem Joachimsthaler Taufbuch 1771 geboren, er war laut dem „Schematismus für das Kà nigreich Bà hmen aus dem Jahr 1815 „k. k. Oberamtsbeisitzer und Amalgamationsverwalter“; im Jahr 1819 lautet der Titel „provisorischer k. k. Bergverwalter, dann Oberamts- und Berggerichtsbeisitzer“, im Schematismus von 1825 „prov. k. k. Bergverwalter und Bergoberamtsbeisitzer“, 1838 war er laut dem „Hof- und Staats-Schematismus“ dann „Bergoberamts- und Districts-Berggerichts-Verweser“ sowie „k. k. Bergrath“. Kurz nachher dürfte er gestorben sein. Während es sich bei dem Bergbau-Teil also um eine (publizierte? veränderte? bearbeitete?) Abschrift handelt, besitzt der angehängte Teil über das in Joachimsthal angewendete Amalgamations-Verfahren Quellenwert.

        REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE APPOINTED TO ENQUIRE INTO THE OPERATION OF THE ACTS MAKING PROVISION FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF TRADING HOUSES WITH THE INDIAN TRIBES, AND INTO THE EXPEDIENCY OF REVIVING AND CONTINUING THE SAID ACTS IN FORCE

      [Philadelphia], 1800. 18pp. plus two folding tables. Dbd. Light scattered foxing. Worming in inner margin of several leaves, not affecting text. Very good. Congressional report on the first two federally operated Indian trading houses, with correspondence from Secretary of War James McHenry, additional correspondence relating to Indian agent John Chisholm, and two large folding tables. The Indian trading houses, known collectively as the Indian Factory System, were a chain of government- owned stores that operated from 1795 to 1822, making a variety of products available to Indians at cost in exchange for native goods. The factories, which were intended to promote peace, offset the British and Spanish influence, and protect Indians from exploitation by private traders, were distributed along the frontier, from Georgia to present-day Michigan, and received large federal appropriations for their operations. For several years after the 1795 and 1796 acts establishing the system were first passed, only two factories were operating: one that was originally established at Coleraine, Georgia and moved to Fort Wilkinson in 1797, and the other at the Tellico Blockhouse on the Tennessee frontier. In the present report, the House committee appointed to review the system states that, while important information concerning the capital stock at the two factories has not been provided by their agents, enough data is present in James McHenry's report and the attached tables to recommend extending the 1796 act for one year, using only existing capital. The act would be renewed again the following year, and in 1802 several additional trading houses would be established. The pamphlet also includes a letter by McHenry relating to John D. Chisholm, who had been granted an Indian trader's license apparently by mistake; McHenry asks that the license be withdrawn and submits a letter by the rather unschooled Chisholm to Secretary of State Thomas Pickering and Pickering's reply which had been wrongly represented as a recommendation for Chisholm. A very interesting set of documents from the earliest phases of the federal Indian trading-house program. EVANS 38824. NAIP w021621. DAH II, pp.238-39.

        Autograph Letter Signed, Philadelphia, December 29, 1800 to Robert Ralston, describing the French Invasion of Curaçao

      quarto 4 pages, accompanied by fair copy of letter from Hampton to a Mr. Brown, dated Curaçao, September 5, 1800, 1 ½ pages and a fair copy of letter to The Secretary of State, signed B. H. Phillips, dated Curaçao, October 25, 1800, 2 ½ pages. Each item in very good clean and legible condition. Three items, seven pages total. A very interesting and highly detailed letter regarding the invasion of Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles, in September 1800, dated Philadelphia, from William Hampton to Robert Ralston. Hampton was the commander of the merchant brig, Sally, of Philadelphia, Robert Ralston to whom the letter is addressed was the ships owner. Captain Hampton took an active role during the fight to drive the French off, for which he was acclaimed in the contemporary letter copy addressed to the Secretary of State, John Marshall, Marshall in 1800 helped negotiate the Convention of 1800, also known as the Treaty of Mortefontaine, which put an end to the skirmishes between the two countries in the Caribbean which had been going on since the XYZ affair. The type of skirmishes described in these manuscripts. Hampton’s letter reads: “D Sir, Agreeably to your request I herewith annex a short sketch of the proceedings during the invasion & siege of Curacao – On the 17th August 1800 I arrived in the harbour of Amsterdam in the Island of Curacao where I found five strong privateers, & from eight to twelve hundred French troops from Guadaloupe and all the inhabitants under arms to oppose them in case of an attack, at the same time there was an embargo which prevented any Vessel from departing. On the 3d September the French left the harbour with ten vessels full of men and was joined in the offing by three more direct from Guadaloupe – On their departure Governor Leuffer dismissed all his Militia troops and kept the few dutch regular soldiers, about four hundred in number to defend the place in the fortifications in case of an attack. – On the 4th at night the signals of alarm were given and on the 5th in the morning it was confirmed that the French had landed at St. Michaels and got possession of the two forts at that place, to convince myself of the truth of this report, I walked from Amsterdam to St. Michaels and back, the distance about sixteen miles & on my return found that it was the opinion of Mr. Phillips and the Governor that the only hope of relief was to dispatch a Boat to the American Commodore at St. Kitts for assistance, I therefore furnished that Boat with American sailors & spar’d Mr. Brown my Mate to go as Navigator, who was absent on that business near one month & was the means of the Merrimack & Patapsco coming to the relief of the Island – (see the instruction to him No 1 -) On the 7th the French made their attack on the dutch troops who were our only defence – At this time I went with my boat & transported from the French to the dutch shore six boat loads of soldiers & with my ship’s company went into Fort Amsterdam to make our defence, the Governor & his party in their retreat left a number of punts or flat bottom boats on the French shore, sufficient to enable the French party to cross the harbour – the whole of these I removed under the fire of the French guns & secured them on the dutch side of the harbour, with the assistance of only one of my men – this circumstance is mentioned by Mr. Phillips in his letter to the Secretary of State (No. 2). During the whole of this night myself & people at the particular desire of Governor Leuffer kept guard and was caution’d to remember the darkness of the night and the treachery of Toulon – This circumstance convinced me that the Governor had not confidence in his Officers which with other marks of disaffection satisfied my mind of the necessity of immediate relief for this reason I concluded to [write for further description and details]

A trifle rubbed to surfaces and a little creasing to joints, else a fine copy. Kinnaird amorial bookplate, with manuscript shelfmark, to FEP. A collection of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century pamphlets, featuring most notably one of the rarities of the Lord Nelson canon: English poet, artist and socialite Ellis Cornelia Knight's famous ode celebrating Nelson's victory at the Battle of the Nile in the summer of 1798. The volume, almost certainly bound together out of utility rather than any coherence, contains several other significant first editions of eighteenth-century works of literature (Pratt's Humanity on the inequities of slavery and Browne's famous work on the immortality of the soul), important titles in eighteenth-century history (John Almon's Letter is an examination of the failure of the British in the American revolutionary wars) and two educational rarities. Ellis Cornelia Knight (1757-1837) had spent much of the final decade of the eighteenth-century on the continent with her mother, Lady Knight. The final year of the latter's life saw the pair living in Naples and, following Nelson's evacuation of the Bourbon monarchy in 1798, in Palermo. There and most especially after her mother's death, Knight, the daughter of Sir Joseph Knight, rear-admiral of the White, proved a 'daughter of the waves' who revelled in the company and protections of Nelson, the English ambassador to the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies Sir William Hamilton, and his wife Emma. It was thus in close proximity to of one of the most notorious love affairs of English history, between Nelson and the diplomat's young wife, that Knight composed this celebration of the English hero of the Nile. She acquired the epithet of 'Nelson's poet laureate' from his fellow naval officers, but as the dedication of The Battle of the Nile to Sir William Hamilton indicates, was very much the literary organ of the trio. The poem was first printed at Naples in 1799 in what must have been a very limited, and almost certainly a private print run; the work is not recorded in ESTC and institutionally is represented by the British library copy only. The history of this rare poem, and indeed the company in which it was composed, did not end with the first edition, nor in Naples. After a somewhat contentious involvement in the domestic politics of the Bourbon dynasty, which culminated in Nelson charging and executing a Neapolitan admiral in the Bay of Naples, and quite startling displays of caprice verging on insubordination, Nelson was ordered back to England. This coincided, rather helpfully, with the granting of Sir William Hamilton's request for relief from his post. As a result, Nelson, the Hamiltons and a group of English fellow travellers voyaged to England by way of central Europe in the September of 1800. The group visited the Esterhazy family and their court composer Joseph Haydn at Eisenstadt, and were honoured by a performance of the latter's Missa in Angustiis, a mass composed when all of Europe and especially Vienna was threatened by Napoleon but first performed when Europe was digesting the impact of Nelson's victory at the Nile. Unsurprisingly given the association, Missa in Angustiis has become known as the 'Nelson Mass'. Slightly lesser known is the cantata 'Lines from the Battle of the Nile' that Haydn produced, presumably after meeting Knight during the group's September visit and reputedly for performance by soprano Emma Hamilton, with lines taken from the former's poem celebrating Nelson's triumph. The publication of the second edition of the poem in Vienna by the widow of famous associate of Mozart, Ignaz Alberti, must surely have been related to this fabulous combination of the literature, music, romance and heroism that accompanied the English travellers' visit to Austria in that summer of 1800. It is almost as rare and most likely printed once again in very small numbers; not recorded by ESTC, OCLC locates copies at Harvard, NMM and Strasbourg only, with COPAC adding another at Oxford. No copy of either is recorded in recent auction records. . Second edition. Quarto.
