First edition in French, of William Bligh's account of his voyage to Tahiti as commander of the Bounty, of the mutiny on board the ship and the subsequent voyage of part of the crew in a small boat, "one of the most remarkable incidents in the whole of maritime history" (Hill). In 1787, the English naval officer William Bligh (1754-1817), who had accompanied Captain Cook on his third voyage to the Pacific, was sent off to the Pacific for the purpose of introducing breadfruit trees from the South Sea Islands to the West Indies as cheap food for the slaves. After spending five months at Tahiti, he set sail for the Caribbean by way of Tonga, where the famous mutiny took place. Bligh and 18 of his men were set adrift in the ship's small launch boat and made a remarkable voyage to Timor, more than 6.5 kilometres away. "In the course of this hazardous journey Bligh took the opportunity to chart and name parts of the unknown north-east coast of New Holland [= Australia] as he passed along it" (Wantrup).With library stamp on flyleaf. Prominent waterstain throughout in the lower margin, affecting two of the maps, one map restored and all maps somewhat foxed. Fair copy. Binding slightly soiled and worn at the foot of the front board, otherwise still good.

        Conversationslexikon mit vorzüglicher Rücksicht auf die gegenwärtigen Zeiten - Vierter Theil

      Friedrich August Leupold, Leipzig 1800 - Vierter Theil, Leipzig 1800. 372 S. 8 S. Anhang. Fraktur. Einband etwas berieben, etwas bestoßen, etwas angeschmutzt, jedoch unbeschädigt, Schnitt gebräunt, etwas angeschmutzt, Seiten kaum angebräunt, kaum angeschmutzt, die letzten Seiten ab S. 350 sind teils etwas stockfleckig, keine Anstreichungen im Text, keine Beschädigungen, altersgemäß ausgesprochen guter Zustand. (Renatus Gotthelf Löbel bezeichnete sich selbst in seiner Vorrede zum Conversationslexikon als Nachfolger Johann Hübners, unter dessen Namen das 1704 erstmals erschienene Reale Staats- und Zeitungs-Lexicon bekannt geworden war. Löbels Ziel bestand in der Schaffung eines "dem gegenwärtigen Umfange der Conversation angemessenen Wörterbuches". Zwischen 1796 und 1800 erschienen die ersten vier Bände, doch nach Löbels frühem Tod im Jahr 1799 sah zunächst alles so aus, als würde es unvollendet bleiben. Dann erschienen 1806 aber ein fünfter Band bei Johann Karl Werther in Leipzig und 1808 Teile des sechsten Bandes bei Johann Friedrich Herzog in Leipzig. Am 25. Oktober 1808 schließlich kaufte Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus (1772-1823), der 1805 mit seiner Verlagstätigkeit in Amsterdam begonnen hatte, das Lexikon dem Leipziger Buchdrucker und Zeitungsverleger Friedrich Richter ab, der das Werk vermutlich in Herzogs Auftrag gedruckt hatte und es bei dessen Insolvenz in Zahlung genommen hatte. Bis zu seinem Tode im Jahr 1823 erweiterte er das Werk kontinuierlich und schuf so die Grundlage für die Brockhaus-Enzyklopädie.) Size: 8° [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An account of the voyages undertaken by the order of His Present Majesty, for making discoveries in the southern hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret, and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour.London, W. Strahan, T. Cadell, 1773. 3 volumes. Large 4to (29.5 x 24.5 cm). With 28 engraved charts and views of coasts, bays and estuaries (several large folding) and 23 numbered engraved illustrations (topographic views, portraits, etc., mostly folding). Contemporary uniform mottled calf, gold-tooled spines.

      Beddie 648; ESTC T74465; Hill 782; Holmes 5; Mendelssohn I, p. 377; Sabin 30934 ("The first edition, to be preferred for its plates"); Howgego, to 1800, C173. First edition (first issue) of the official account of James Cook's first voyage, edited from Cook's journals by John Hawkesworth. Although Hawkesworth was heavily criticized for his sloppy editorial work and his use of the first person, the account is of great historical significance, especially for its finely executed illustrations. The first volume relates the voyages of Byron, Carteret and Wallis (the discoverer of Tahiti), and volumes two and three are devoted to Cook's voyage. Cook was appointed commander of the Endeavour to sail for Tahiti to observe the transit of Venus and to search for the hypothetical Terra Australis, whose existence had been proposed by the geographer Alexander Dalrymple. In Tahiti he duly observed the transit and then sailed south in search of the southern continent until bad weather forced him to turn north again. In October 1769 the crew sighted the northern Island of New Zealand. Cook spent many weeks surveying New Zealand and his remarkably accurate chart, included in the second volume, remains a major achievement. From New Zealand he steered westward, heading for the east coast of Australia. Cook surveyed and charted almost the whole coast of New South Wales and proved that New Holland (Australia) and New Guinea were two separate islands. According to Holmes there are several issues of the first edition and the "earliest issues lack the directions for placing the cuts and the 'Chart of the Streight of Magellan'..." (Holmes ). Our copy includes the directions for the binder, but lacks the chart of the Strait of Magellan.All volumes have some leaves foxed or browned, but otherwise in very good condition. Bindings scuffed at the extremities and worn in the joints, with a long crack in the joint of the front board of volume 1, but otherwise good.

        The Effects of Youthful Extravagance & Idleness; The Fruits of early Industry & Oeconomy

      London 1800 - A pair of colour printed stipple engravings. Image size: 23 1/8 x 18 3/4 inches. A fine pair of colour printed stipple engravings by George Morland, the master of English genre painting. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. Morland was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. Morland is considered a master of genre, his beautiful paintings depict with insightful subtlety the tender side of English country life. The subjects of this pair of very fine prints find echoes in a number of earlier works, most notably William Hogarth's series titled 'The Idle.' and 'The Industrious Apprentice'. The present pair are specifically described by Samuel Collings' verses which appear with the title beneath each image.

      [N.p., but almost certainly Mauritius. N. d., but ca. 1800]. - Engraving, 5 x 4 inches. Light soiling. A few contemporary ink notations on verso. Very good. Engraved portrait of Governor Anne Joseph Hippolyte de Maurès, Comte de Malartic, governor of the island of Mauritius. The portrait is a line-drawing, done in profile and framed in an oval. Flags flank either side of the oval frame and it is captioned beneath. There is some light wear to the tiny imprint information, causing it to be slightly obscured, but it is possible that the illustrator's name is "Girouai" and the engraver may be "Noiret." The engraving is a bit crude and printed on laid paper. It is likely that it was done shortly after Malartic's death in 1800. A most unusual and exotic image, a tribute to the rich culture of printing that flourished on the remote island in the south Indian Ocean.

Erfurt: Beyer & Maring, 1800. First edition of this attractive and fascinating book which relates harmony to colors; it is very much a product of early German Romanticism.

He was "born into a noble family...though physically deformed, he was a virtuoso pianist...He studied composition with Ignaz Holzbauer and travelled extensively in Italy and England. His works about music and his compositions were published regularly in his lifetime and were regarded seriously by professionals... "Dalberg's writings cover such diverse subjects as meteorology, penal law and translations of works on oriental subjects. This wide range of interest that hints at the dilettante is also reflected in his writings on music. Their topics included the music of India, ancient Greek music, newly invented instruments and the history of harmony."-New Grove, Vol. 5, pp. 151-52. Dalberg was very interested in the nature of musical inspiration and in the present work he provides a history of harmony and relates various harmonic structures to certain colors. The wonderful handcolored frontispiece depicts a color scale ranging from deep blue to pale yellow. Dalberg associates diatonic and chromatic scales with darker colors and enharmonic scales with orange and yellow. Fine copy. .

        Liber Chronicarum

      More than 1800 woodcuts in the text including a Ptolemaic world map, & one folding woodcut map of northern & central Europe. CCCXXXVIII leaves, 25 unnumbered leaves (without the two blanks). Small folio (300 x 204 mm.), fine smooth 18th-cent. vellum over boards (title with a few very light stains & a very faint old stamp, first & final two leaves with tiny marginal wormholes). Augsburg: J. Schoensperger, 1 Feb. 1497. A very lovely copy, complete with a fine example of the often-missing folding map of northern and central Europe, of the first edition of the "Small Schedel," a reduced version of the large folio of 1493, entirely reset and with the famous illustrations re-cut. Originally published by Anton Koberger in Nuremberg in 1493, the Chronicle is a biblical account of the Creation of the World, ending with the Last Judgement. The many city views, some imaginary, include those of Augsburg, Nuremberg, Cologne, Mainz, Wurzburg, Munich, Strasbourg, Ulm, Prague, Vienna, Milan, Genoa, Rome, Pisa, Florence, Venice, Paris, Lyon, Bratislava, Cracow, Athens, Constantinople, Cairo, Damascus, and Jerusalem. Also included is a reduced Ptolemaic world map. The hundreds of portraits illustrate biblical figures, kings and queens, popes, philosophers, poets, and other figures of historical interest. Interspersed are passages on disastrous events and portents, monsters and other curiosities. Originally the work of the famous woodcutters Michael Wolgemut, teacher of Dürer, and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, Schoensperger had the illustrations re-cut by some of his best craftsmen to fit the new format. Copies of the "small Schedel" are considerably rarer than the original, large folio, editions. All editions are, however, very rarely found in original, unsophisticated state, with most copies that come onto the market defective, and with leaves missing or supplied. The copy offered here is an unusually well-preserved and "pure" example. A few other minor flaws but a very fine crisp copy. Final leaf backed at the time of rebinding in the 18th century (the verso of the final leaf is blank). ❧ Goff S-308. Klebs 889.2. .

        [Group of Eight Privately Printed Works]

      [London], [late 1800s]. Very Good. A very scarce collection of Lushington's privately printed writings. All were printed by the Chiswick Press. Vernon Lushington (1832-1912) was an English solicitor, a Positivist, an associate of many famous writers and artists, a friend of the Pre-Raphaelites, and the father of the model for Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway. He remains virtually unknown today, but recently available family archives reveal how interesting and important figure he was. It was Lushington who arranged the first meeting between his friend Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones. He contributed to The Oxford and Cambridge Magazine and remained a long-time friend of William Morris, often visiting Kelmscott Manor. There was also a close connection between the Lushington and the Stephen family. After his wife died, Lushington's three daughters were taken under the wing of Julia Stephen, wife of Leslie Stephen, and mother of Virginia Woolf. The eldest daughter, Kitty, became the model for the eponymous heroine of Woolf's novel Mrs. Dalloway. Lushington's views on Positivism, politics, and literature are clearly evident in the occasional poetry he wrote and had printed by the Chiswick Press. This collection comprises: 1) Positivist Hymns, London, 1885. First edition. Original wrappers. 60 pages. 2) Moses. [London n.d.] First edition. Original wrappers. 28 pages. 3) St. Paul. [London, n.d.] First edition. Original wrappers.17 pages. 4) Sonnets on the Positivist Calendar. [London, n.d.]. Original wrappers. 5) Good for Evil: or a Marriage in Kensington Square. [London, n.d.] 7 pages. 6) Remembered Words. [London, n.d.]. Original wrappers. 27 pages. 7) A Slab Tomb in Rome [London, n.d.] 12 pages. 8) Prophetic. [London, n.d.]. 2 pages. Some light wear and browning to the wrappers but still very good copies of such fragile publications. POE/103014.

Juli 1826 auf Monticello bei Charlottesville, Virginia) war der dritte Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika (1801?-1809), der hauptsächliche Verfasser der amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitserklärung und einer der einflussreichsten Staatstheoretiker der USA. Jefferson war einer der Gründer der Demokratisch-Republikanischen Partei der Vereinigten Staaten. In seine Zeit als Präsident fielen der Kauf von Louisiana, die Expedition von Lewis und Clark und ein fehlgeschlagenes Embargo gegen Großbritannien und Frankreich. Er gilt als „Vater der Universität von Virginia?", und seine Privatbibliothek war der Grundstock für den Wiederaufbau der Library of Congress nach dem Krieg von 1812. Sein Denken war von der Aufklärung bestimmt. Er setzte sich für eine Trennung von Religion und Staat, für eine große Freiheit des Einzelnen und für eine starke föderale Struktur der Vereinigten Staaten ein. (Wikipedia) Leopold August Wilhelm Dorotheus von Henning (eigentlich von Henning auf Schönhoff; * 4. Oktober 1791 in Gotha; † 5. Oktober 1866 in Berlin) war ein deutscher Philosoph. Henning, Sohn des Obersten Christian von Henning (1748?-1809), studierte Geschichte, Jura und Philosophie in Heidelberg, anschließend (nach seiner Teilnahme an den Befreiungskriegen und einem Aufenthalt in London) Nationalökonomie in Wien. 1815 begann er sein Referendariat in Königsberg in der Neumark; nach erneuter Kriegsteilnahme hatte er ein Referendariat in Erfurt inne und lebte schließlich ab 1818 in Berlin, wo er zum Anhänger des gerade an die Berliner Universität berufenen Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel wurde. An der Universität erhielt er auf Hegels Wunsch im Juli 1820 eine Stelle als Repetent für die Hegelsche Philosophie und promovierte 1821. 1823 heiratete von Henning Emilie Krutisch (1805?-1853). Das Ehepaar hatte drei Söhne und sieben Töchter, darunter Laura von Henning (1826?-1911), die den Juristen Berthold Delbrück (1817?-1868) heiratete und die Mutter des Historikers Hans Delbrück (1848?-1929) und des Chemikers Max Delbrück (1850?-1919) war. Im Jahr 1825 wurde von Henning zum außerordentlichen Professor für Philosophie an die Berliner Universität berufen, 1835 erhielt er eine ordentliche Professur. Ab 1827 war er Redakteur der Jahrbücher für wissenschaftliche Kritik („Berliner Jahrbücher?"), die in den folgenden 20 Jahren zur einflussreichsten Zeitschrift der Hegelianer wurden. Nach Hegels Tod edierte von Henning innerhalb der Vollständigen Ausgabe von Hegels Werken die drei Bände über Logik. (Wikipedia)
