        Rare Handwritten John Nicholson Document Concerning War Debts

      Nicholson was a Revolutionary-era Pennsylvania state official. He partnered with Robert Morris in western land speculation that bankrupted both. He was sent to debtor's prison in 1800 and died there shortly thereafter. ADS. 1pg. 8 ¾" x 8. Jany 21, 1783. Comptr Generals Office Phiada. A very rare autograph document signed "Jno Nicholson": "Capt Joseph Blewer Esqr acknowledges to have recd the sum of four thousand five hundred and eighty five pounds and Six pence of Samuel Massey Esqr. at the time and for the purpose Mentd. within which he had borrowed of Sd. Massey as, he declares upon Interest, he also produces a copy of his accts. Current wherein he charges himself and accts. for the expenditure of the sum aforesaid... £1000 were pd by his draft on the navy board in fav of I Hood." On the back are numbers totaling £4585.6 all in the handwriting of Joseph Blewer. At the bottom, Blewer penned "Receiv'd Octr 18 1777 from Samuel Massey Four Thousand five hundred & eighty five pounds & Six Pence for the use of the State of Pennsylvania. Joseph Blewer". Joseph Blewer of Philadelphia served in the Pennsylvania General Assembly from 1779 to 1780. Samuel Massey (1734-1793), a descendant of a prominent Quaker family in the Philadelphia region, was a captain in the Revolution and commanded a company of troops. Before the war, he owned a successful import company. As this document shows, Massey indirectly lent Pennsylvania money for the war efforts. Though Nicholson is a common autograph appearing on many pieces of Revolutionary War paper, the American Book Prices Current shows only two holograph pieces. The document is in fragile condition with fold separations and ragged edges

        Tratado do melhoramento da navegação por canães, onde se mostrão as numerosas vantagens ?traduzido para a portugueza ? por Antonio Carlos Ribeiro de Andrade Machado da Silva ?.

      Lisbon, Officina da Casa Litteraria do Arco do Cego, 1800. - (8 ll.), 114 pp., (1 blank l.), 18 engraved plates [some folding; numbered 1?12, 13a, 13b, 14?17]. 4°, contemporary quarter sheep over plain blue-grey paper boards (paper peeling; spine defective at head and foot; other binding wear), flat spine with leather lettering piece, gilt letter, text block sprinkled red. A few small wormholes in outer margin, not affecting text or images. In good to very good condition. ---- First edition in Portuguese of Fulton's @A Treatise on the Improvement of Canal Navigation, Exhibiting the Numerous Advantages to be Desired from Small Canals, and Boats of Two to Five Feet Wide . . . , published London, 1796. The @Treatise was the first major published work of the celebrated American inventor, engineer, and painter Robert Fulton. Born near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1765, Fulton left for England in 1786, not returning to the United States until 1806. Under the patronage the Duke of Bridgewater, Fulton spent much of his time studying boat propulsion and canal improvements. The latter are documented in the @Treatise, where Fulton advocates the development in England of an extensive system of inland waterways, discusses their construction and operating costs, and describes various inventions designed to facilitate canal operation.Fulton's work found favor throughout Europe. It was soon translated into Portuguese with the express wish that its ideas could be exploited both in Portugal and in Brazil. The @Tratado faithfully reproduces the elegant plates of the London edition, which were engraved after Fulton's own designs. They depict not only types of canal machinery, but also the proper design of large wooden and cast iron bridges. The engraver was Inácio José de Freitas, who executed a number of other works at the Arco do Cego.The translator and editor, Antonio Carlos Ribeiro de Andrade Machado da Silva (1773-1845), was born in São Paulo, studied at the Universidade de Coimbra, and returned to Brazil, where he held various government posts. A staunch supporter of Brazilian independence, he was a ringleader of the failed 1817 Pernambuco revolt. The @Tratado is one of several works he translated for the Arco do Cego press.This text was published at the Arco do Cego press (officially the Tipografia Chalcografica, Tipoplastica e Literaria, located in Lisbon at the Arco do Cego), established in 1800 at the insistence of D. Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho, Minister of State, who realized the need to spread information on new techniques in the arts, industry and agriculture in Portugal and Brazil. The director of the press was José Mariano da Conceição Veloso (1742?-1811), a native of Minas Geraes and a noted botanist; he was assisted by many young Brazilians living in Lisbon. In 1801 the Arco do Cego press was incorporated into the Regia Oficina Typografica, later known as the Impressão Regia and then the Imprensa Nacional.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 798; @Período colonial p. 28.

        An album containing ten watercolour and gouache drawings of botanical arrangements

      1800 - Original gilt-patterned paper over pasteboard, green cloth ties A lovely early album of fine Chinese flower paintings, in remarkably fine condition. Despite its entirely Chinese origins this album was almost certainly produced for a western patron: perhaps a gift from an East India Company employee to his wife, or a Yankee clipper captain for his daughter. It contains a very fine selection of watercolours executed on pith-paper: a material that rarely survives in anything approaching fine condition. The drawings are all of arrangements of sprigs from flowering plants together with individual blooms. The intention of these drawings was not to provide dry scientifically-accurate botanical drawings, but to produce designs that were pleasing and harmonious. Flowers include Hibiscus, Gardenia, Chrysanthemum, Quince, Morning Glory, Camellia and two butterflies. It later became the custom to instruct the Chinese artists in the art of western botanical drawing and also supply them with good quality western paper to work on. The apparent lack of any foreign materials or method suggest an earlier date for this album, although the style of drawing did remain popular through most of the 19th century. (9 1/2 x 12 7/8 inches). 10 original watercolour and gouache drawings on Chinese pith paper (each approx. 8 x 11 1/2 inches), most with small areas heightened with gum arabic, each tipped onto a backing sheet at each corner and bordered by strips of pale blue paper that are also tipped to the backing sheet (four with insignificant splits to the pith paper, as usual).

        SALZBURG PERICOPES STANDARD EDITION (DAS SALZBURGER PERIKOPENBUCH MIT LEDEREINBAND) Fine Facsimile Illuminated Edition of 11th Century

      Faksimile Verlag Luzern. New;. Hardcover. <p>Salzburg Pericopes, 11th century - Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Clm 15713</p><p>A Monumental Example of Ottonian Book Illumination </p><p>A Counterpart to Secular Manuscripts </p><p>The Salzburg Pericopes provide an outstanding example of a manuscript in the tradition of Ottonian book illumination which is closely related to the Carolingian style. As all great manuscripts from the Ottonian period, the Salzburg Pericopes were created in a monastery. However, the Pericopes were not made on the initiative of an Emperor but on request of the high clergy, thus forming a counterpart to the well-known secular manuscripts of the time. The extremely lavishly decorated manuscript may be considered as the equivalent of the Gospel Pericopes of Henry II, another important illuminated manuscript in the European tradition. </p><p>Our Pericopes were probably executed around 1020 in Salzburg, during the reign of the emperor Henry II. They were obviously done for Hartwig, archbishop of Salzburg, and destined for liturgigal purposes on selected high feast days of the Church year. In contrast to a Gospel Book, this book comprises only the passages from the Gospels which are to be read throughout the ecclesiastical year, the gospel pericopes, thus making it easier for the priest celebrating Mass to find the proper text. </p><p>Combining the Most Beautiful Traditions of Book Illumination </p><p>When Emperor Otto II married the Byzantine princess Theophano, this caused a wave of Byzantine influences in the Arts and Scholarship which in turn enriched book illumination with expressive gestures and Byzantine figure modelling. However, the scriptoria of Central Europe were also exposed to the influence of the remarkable Salzburg school, e. G. The Regensburg tradition in which spirit the precious works of St. Emmeram&#39;s Abbey, such as the Sacramentary of Henry II, were created or the Reichenau school whose rich production features highlights, such as the Reichenau Gospels or the Gospel Book of Otto III. </p><p>New Mobility of Scribes and Illuminators </p><p>In the Middle Ages the monasteries were considered the upholders of civilisation and there was a great mobility between them. At the same time, the scriptoria in the monasteries organised exchanges of scribes and illuminators. This led to the combination of influences from the most famous workshops with those of the new Byzantine movement and finally to the culmination of German book art of the 11th century in one work: the Salzburg Pericopes. Another important reason for the upswing of the Salzburg school was the institutional separation before the turn of the century of St. Peter&#39;s Abbey from the archdiocese and the election of an independent abbot. Shortly after that the scriptorium began to flourish again. </p><p>A Magnificent Manuscript as Spoils of War </p><p>Next to nothing is known about the fate of the manuscript, until the beginning of the 19th century. It neither appears in catalogues of books nor in library inventories. For this period, research has to rely on what is recorded in the manuscript itself. In 1800, when the French occupying forces had cast an eye on the codex, it was first listed in an inventory to trace the treasures of the Salzburg cathedral that had been taken to Paris. After Napoleon&#39;s defeat, the manuscript was moved to Munich where it is kept to this day (at that time, Salzburg belonged to Bavaria). </p><p>Twelve Magnificent Ivory Tablets </p><p>Twelve precious ivory tablets are embedded in the front cover of the red leather binding, most probably a work of the 11th century, which goes back either to artists from the South of France or from the North of Spain. Being the only examples of their kind having come down to us, these tablets were originally designed for a portable altar. However, we do not know when and how they found their way to Salzburg. This luxurious binding is one of the special features in manuscripts from this epoch which are still waiting to be studied in more detail. </p><p>A Sumptuous Example of Book Illumination </p><p>Overwhelming gold inlay or decoration is one of the main features of the Salzburg Pericopes: The beholder stands in admiration before the 19 gilded miniatures, one of the highlights of artistic creation at the time. But also the 70 richly decorated luxurious initial letters and innumerable small gold initials within the text make this marvellous manuscript a true de luxe example of its kind. </p><p>The Fine Art Facsimile Edition - an Exclusive Art Treasure </p><p>The unique and complete fine art reproduction of the Salzburg Pericopes was fostered by His Eminence, Dr. Franz König, cardinal of Vienna. The facsimile comprises 140 richly embellished pages. The pages have been trimmed to the format of approx. 37,2 x 29 cm. The finest details were reproduced as a faithful copy of the original made possible by the most up-to-date technical processes and highly qualified craftsmanship. All leaves are trimmed according to the original and sewn together by hand. </p><p>The world-wide limited de luxe edition of only 180 numbered copies includes replicas of the twelve magnificent ivory tablets in a faithful reproduction of the original binding in dark red kidskin with metal clasps. The de luxe edition has been sold out. </p><p>The standard edition is limited to 300 copies world-wide and comes in a precious dark-red kidskin binding with sumptuous embossings and clasps. </p><p>The Commentary Volume </p><p>On 176 pages, the commentary volume explains the history of the Salzburg Pericopes in a number of comprehensive and interesting contributions by experts of international renown. Editor Prof. Dr. Hermann Fillitz, Vienna; Prof. Dr. Heinrich Dopsch, Salzburg; Dr. Hermann Hauke, Munich; Prof. Dr. Ulrich Kuder, Kiel; Doz. Dr. Martina Pippal, Vienna; Dr. Peter Wind, Salzburg. </p><p>Documentation Kit</p><p>A documentation kit containing three full-sized leaves from the Fine Art Facsimile Edition and an illustrated 16-page information brochure is available for information upon request. </p> .

        Traite des membranes en general et de diverses membranes en particulier

      Richard, Caille, Ravier, Paris 1800 - 8vo. 326pp. Quarter calf gilt, paste paper boards, vellum corners, hinges a little tender. Faint dampstains on first 20 or so leaves, otherwise a clean, crisp copy. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 537. The foundation of histology and tissue pathology. Bichat's most important contribution to anatomy was his generalization of Pinel's theory, expressed in Nosographie philosophique (1798), that pathology must be based upon the structure of the tissues of which bodily organs are composed, regardless of where in the body they occur. Bichat distinguished twenty-one different types of tissue, which he classified according to texture and to properties: extensibility, contractility, and the vital properties-- organic contractility and sensibility ("insensible" or "subliminal") on the one hand, and animal contractility and sensibility ("sensible" or "conscious") on the other. Each tissue differed in its diseases, as diseases were nothing more than alterations in the tissue's vital properties. Claude Bernard said of Bichat that he "decentralized life and incarnated it in the tissues" (quoted in Hall II, p. 129), and that his ideas were the source of modern opinions concerning vital phenomena.

        Lyrical Ballads

      T. N. Longman And O. Rees, London 1800 - 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. A rare copy in handsome contemporary calf of one of the most important books in English literature. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Francesco Pistolesi fu primo nonché perpetuo segretario dell'Accademia Labronica i cui statuti di fondazione furono sottoposti a Ferdinando III da Giuseppe Vivoli nel 1816. Assieme a Pietro Parenti, primo presidente, l'impegno fu quello di una biblioteca sempre più ricca, che attorno alla metà del secolo venne poi donata al comune di Livorno. Lo zibaldone consiste interamente di materiali trascritti (ed anche tradotti) da giornali, riviste, gazzette, pubblicazioni scientifiche dalle provenienze più disparate, in lingua italiana e francese, di argomenti prevalentemente naturalistici, con una preferenza per ciò che riguarda la geologia, la meteorologia, i terremoti, i vulcani, i mari.

        Le Cultivateur Anglois, ou Oeuvres choisies d&#146;Agriculture, et d&#146;Economie rurale et politique

      - Traduit de l&#146;Anglois par les CC. Lamarre, Benoist et Billecocq; avec des Notes par le citoyen Delalauze. 73 engraved plates on 72 sheets (many folding), of which one is finely handcolored, & six folding printed tables. 18 vols. 8vo, cont. half-calf & speckled boards, flat spines gilt with wheat sheaf & sunburst stamps in alternating compartments, pale blue morocco lettering pieces on spines. Paris: Maradan, 1800-01. First edition in French of the collected works of Arthur Young (1741-1820). He "was not only the best-known agricultural reformer and publicist of his time, with an international reputation, but also a figure of importance in the political and social issues of the day. He had an extraordinary capacity for work In an age of hazardous roads he travelled many thousands of miles, a high proportion of them on horseback or on foot, and he still found energy to write up his day&#146;s notes and perhaps some letters in his inn room at night. Some modern historians have criticized his agricultural work and have compared him unfavourably with his rival, William Marshall, but it is often overlooked that their approaches were different: Marshall gave an account of the farming of a region as a whole, while Young was not concerned with presenting a rounded picture of contemporary farming; his interests lay entirely in reporting on new advances and condemning old and inefficient methods. His enthusiasm often led him into hyperbole, but he was realistic in appreciating that farmers would only take up what could be shown to pay. Some of his own experiments were misconceived, but in his day the true factors in plant growth were far from understood. As a pioneering scientific spirit he was very widely respected, and his knowledge, wit, and pleasant personality made him welcome in both aristocratic mansion and modest farmhouse."&#150;ODNB. Young&#146;s writings were very influential in France. This is the very fine Schönborn-Buchheim set. A few corners have minor wear or rubbing. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A professor of zoology at the Museum of Natural History, the French naturalist Bernard-Germain-Étienne Delaville, Comte de Lacépède (1756-1825) was a versatile and precocious scholar who published a number of books on zoology, physics, and music. He was greatly influenced by the pioneering naturalist Georges Louis Marie Leclerc, comte de Buffon, whom he succeeded as Intendant at the Jardin du Roi, which later became the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in 1793. During his tenure, Lacépède completed a comprehensive study of amphibians and reptiles, Historie Naturelle des Quadrupèdes Ovipares et des Serpens , which was published as a supplement to Buffon's magnum opus on animal classification Histoire Naturelle, Générale et Particulière . In 1800-1, he published the first edition of La Menagerie du Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle , a thorough survey of the various species of quadrupeds, reptiles and amphibians in the impressive collection of the Museum of Natural History. This magnificent work was comprised of descriptive text written by Lacépède and his colleague Georges L. C., Baron Cuvier (1769-1832) as well as a number of finely rendered plates after the most eminent natural history artists of the period, Nicolas Maréchal (1753-1803), Nicolas Huet (1770-1830) and Léon de Wailly (1801-1824). Painted from life on vellum, these beautifully detailed illustrations faithfully captured the appearance of the wondrous animals in the Paris menagerie. A pupil of J. G. Wille and C. N.

He was greatly influenced by the pioneering naturalist Georges Louis Marie Leclerc, comte de Buffon, whom he succeeded as Intendant at the Jardin du Roi, which later became the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in 1793. During his tenure, Lacépède completed a comprehensive study of amphibians and reptiles, Historie Naturelle des Quadrupèdes Ovipares et des Serpens , which was published as a supplement to Buffon's magnum opus on animal classification Histoire Naturelle, Générale et Particulière . In 1800-1, he published the first edition of La Menagerie du Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle , a thorough survey of the various species of quadrupeds, reptiles and amphibians in the impressive collection of the Museum of Natural History. This magnificent work was comprised of descriptive text written by Lacépède and his colleague Georges L. C., Baron Cuvier (1769-1832) as well as a number of finely rendered plates after the most eminent natural history artists of the period, Nicolas Maréchal (1753-1803), Nicolas Huet (1770-1830) and Léon de Wailly (1801-1824). Painted from life on vellum, these beautifully detailed illustrations faithfully captured the appearance of the wondrous animals in the Paris menagerie. A pupil of J. G. Wille and C. N. Cochin, Simon Charles Miger was a royal academician and a talented engraver, who executed numerous portraits and natural history plates. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , vol. 9, p. 611; Anker 275; BM(NH) IV, p. 1517; Brunet III, 725; Nissen ZBI 2353. Copper engraving, printed on laid paper. Very good condition apart from a few tiny nicks at the extreme edges of the sheet and some minor foxing in the margins and the image. [Attributes: First Edition]
