        JOURNALS OF CONGRESS: CONTAINING THEIR PROCEEDINGS [FROM SEPTEMBER 5, 1774 TO NOVEMBER 3, 1788].

      Philadelphia: From Folwell's Press, -1. 1800 - Thirteen volumes. Recent antique style three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Bookplates of Edward Everett on front pastedown of each volume. Some light tanning and soiling, but generally clean internally. Very good. The first collected printing of the Journals of the United States Congress, known as the "Folwell Edition." Prior to the issuing of Folwell's set, the Journals had appeared in more or less annual volumes. Many of those original journals are virtually unobtainable. In 1799, Congress directed that Richard Folwell print 400 sets of the complete journals of the Continental Congress for the use of the Senate and the House of Representatives. This was accomplished during 1800 and 1801, reprinting the annual volumes comprising the proceedings of the Continental Congress from the two Congresses held prior to the Declaration of Independence, then for the duration of the Confederacy, through the adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. This set has the important provenance of Elbridge Gerry, the fifth Vice President of the United States, and then to the distinguished American statesman Edward Everett. Everett's bookplate is in each volume, and he has written on the front flyleaf of volume one "This copy of the Journals of the Continental Congress belonged to Elbridge Gerry, Vice-President of the United States with President Madison in his second term. E.E." Gerry served in the Continental Congress and was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was an early and vigorous advocate of American Independence, and played a crucial role in the formation of the new United States government, insisting on a bill of rights being added to the new Constitution. "Gerry warned that the Constitution would not be ratified without a bill of rights, and he proved to be right. Massachusetts accepted the document, but only with the strong recommendation that a bill of rights be added. Several other states followed suit, and the Constitution was ratified but only with these provisos. Gerry staunchly supported the new government, helped to frame the Bill of Rights, and served as congressman from 1789 to 1793" - ANB. His name is perhaps most remembered, however ignominiously, in connection with the term "gerrymandering." In his second term as governor of Massachusetts, Gerry redrew district lines to consolidate his party's control in the state senate. "The shape of one electoral district on the map resembled a salamander, and one wit promptly dubbed it a 'Gerrymander.' Hence, the term used today when redistricting results in a concentration of the strength of one political party and a weakening of its opponent's strength" - ANB. Though this was not necessarily a new practice, the name stuck. Gerry ran on the ticket with President Madison two years later, during Madison's second term as President, and died in office in 1814. Edward Everett attended Harvard, then became the first American to study in Europe and obtain a Ph.D. He served in the U.S. House of Representatives, as governor of Massachusetts for four years 1835-39, then U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain, President of Harvard, Secretary of State, and Senator from Massachusetts. Ironically his career ended as the long-winded keynote speaker at Gettysburg, preceding Abraham Lincoln's Address with two hours of oratory. He died a year later. An important set with the significant provenance of two of the most important statesmen from Massachusetts in the first half of the 19th century. SABIN 15545. EVANS 15683, 38750 (through 1800).

        A Bill Entitled, \"An Act for the Union of Great Britain and Ireland

      (London): W. Sleater Printer to the House of Lords., 1800. Folio. 31 pp, plus folding tables. This is an original copy of the notorious Act of Union of 1800, as printed for the House of Lords. It bears the ink signature \"Somerton\" and has notes in the same hand in the text. Lord Somerton was the Archbishop of Dublin, and was active in the debate in this act in the House of Lords. I presume this is his copy, especially since some of the annotations have to do with church matters. The text is stained and disbound, but complete and in good repair.

        A REMARKABLE NARRATIVE OF THE CAPTIVITY AND ESCAPE OF MRS. FRANCES SCOTT, AN INHABITANT OF WASHINGTON COUNTY VIRGINIA.

      [Leominster? Printed for Chapman Whitcomb [by Adams and Wilder?], [1800?]. - 16pp. 32mo. Later paper wrappers. Lightly soiled. Bookplate of Frank Cutter Deering inside front cover. In a custom cloth slipcase and chemise, gilt leather label. Rare captivity narrative of Mrs. Frances Scott, taken captive in southwest Virginia in 1785 after her husband and children were murdered by Indian savages. Though the narrative appeared in collections of other captivities, this is one of the first instances of its separate printing. The narrative relates how Mrs. Scott fled her Indian captors and wandered in the Appalachian wilderness for a month, subsisting on prayer, bark and roots. Along the way she fell down a steep hill but broke no bones, and was bitten by a poisonous snake, before being found by some woodsmen. The Leominster bookseller, Chapman Whitcomb, is credited in the imprint of many similar narratives. Bristol credits Adams and Wilder as the printers and gives the approximate date of printing. Only two other copies located, at the Newberry Library and the American Antiquarian Society. Vail also notes the present copy, formerly in the collection of Frank C. Deering. Rare. BRISTOL B11118.

        Researches, Chemical and Philosophical; Chiefly Concerning Nitrous Oxide, Or Dephlogisticated Nitrous Air and its Respiration.

      London, 1800. 8vo. A nice later half calf in contemporary style, with the contemporary gilt title-label preserved. Five raised bands. A bit of wear to extremities. Sunning to corners of first and last leaves and a bit of offsetting from the plate. A very nice and clean copy, printed on blue paper, XVI, (2), 580, (2, -errata & advertisements) pp. + 1 plate.. "Excessively rare" (Duveen) first edition of this milestone in the history of anaesthesia, "one of the most remarkable books in the history of science" (Fulton), being Davy's groundbreaking first important work, in which he suggests the possible anaesthetic qualities of nitrous oxide and describes for the first time the use of "laughing gas".Sir Humphry Davy (1778-1829), 1st Baronet, President of the Royal Society, Member of the Royal Irish Academy, and Fellow of the Geological Society, was born in Cornwall as the son of a poor wood carver. When his father died in 1794, Humphry had to support his family and entered apprenticeship with a surgeon. Here, his interest in chemistry was awoken and here he met Davies Gilbert, who offered him use of his library and invited him to his house at Tredrea. In 1798 he was appointed to Beddoes' Pneumatic Institute in Bristol, where he, the following year, devised an improved method for producing nitrous oxide - one of the most remarkable discoveries in the history of medicine, and one which affected society on a whole - a veritable craze for breathing "laughing gas" was initiated by Davy's descriptions of the effects."The starting point in the history of inhalation anaesthesia is the fact that Sir Humphry Davy breathed nitrous oxide in the pure state in 1799... He suggested that the gas might probably be used with advantage during surgical operations in which no great effusion of blood takes place." (E. Ashmore Underwood). During his residence at Bristol, Davy formed the acquaintance of the Earl of Durham and close friendships with Gregory Watt, James Watt, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey, all of whom became regular users of Davy's nitrous oxide (laughing gas) - to which Davy, by the way, would later become addicted. "Davy published the results of his studies of nitrous oxide in the now much sought-after volume entitled "Researches, Chemical and Philosophical; chiefly concerning Nitrous Oxide". This important book not only outlined his basic researches but also suggested the possible anaesthetic qualities of nitrous oxide. In one section of the book (p. 465), Davy describes his use of gas in the temporary alleviation of the pin of inflammation of the gums induced by a wisdom tooth. He studied the effects of its inhalation both in man and animals, using for his human subjects a group of men who were the centre of intellectual life in Bristol: Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey, James Thomson, Peter Roget (he of the "Thesaurus"), Tom Wedgwood, and other prominent literary figures." (Hagelin, p. 140).The plate in this extraordinary work depicts what is presumably the first gas inhalator, namely that made for Davy by Watt. "Perhaps the first made gas inhaler was one which James Watt, renowned engineer, constructed for Humphry Davy in 1799" (A. Charles King). Davy's studies with gas, presented for the first time in the present work, also led to his invention of the safety lamp that bears his name (the Davy Lamp), which ever since its invention has been extensively employed in coal mines and spared the lives of many workers. It was the present work which established Davy's name as a chemist and earned him many of the honours bestowed upon him.Duveen p. 160.Gedeon p. 157.Garrison&Morton: 5646.Dibner: 128.Hagelin: p. 140

        Neue Vorschläge und Erfindungen zur Verbesserung der Wasserkünste beym Bergbau und Salinenwesen

      16 fine folding engraved plates (six with light & mostly marginal dampstaining). xii, 98 pp. Large 4to, fine cont. red sheep, sides decorated with a gilt fillet, flat spine prettily gilt, green morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. Bayreuth: Heirs of J.A. Lübeck, 1800. First edition and quite rare. Baader (1763-1835), a famous mining expert and Chief of the Bavarian Mining Council, resided in England and Scotland from 1786 to 1794, where he studied the most recent technological developments taking place there, both in mining and metallurgy. While in Edinburgh, he designed a new blasting machine for iron mines which had considerable success and became known as the Baadersches Geblaese. His greatest contribution to science was, however, his devotion, through propaganda and the power of his position, to the building of railways in Bavaria. The present work, a sequel to his Vollständige Theorie der Saug- und Hebepumpen (1797), was written while Baader was director of mining and machinery in Bavaria. It is concerned with various kinds of pumps used in mines, to flood brine pools, and to transport brine solutions. These same pumps were used for more than a century to irrigate the famous gardens at the palace of Nymphenburg in Münich. The finely engraved plates depict various parts of the pumps, mostly in cross-section views. Fine copy in a very pretty binding from the library of the dukes of Bavaria. ❧ A.D.B., I, pp. 725-26.

        A wonderful original miniature painting on ivory of George Washington likely from the Geneva shop of the Frères Rochat

      A masterful miniature bust portrait of George Washington, signed, ?Rochat? in blue, accomplished on ivory, 2.25? x 3? visible, housed in an ornate brass standing frame 6.5? x 8.5?, festooned with laurels, torches and an eagle at top with a heavily-worn red velvet field beneath. Fine condition.The portrait appears to be somewhat based on well-published engravings of Washington during his Presidency. The miniature portrait of a white-haired Washington is signed \"Rochat\" in blue at the extreme right and is more than likely the work of the Geneva watchmakers, Frères Rochat circa 1800. The house, founded by David Rochat (1746-1812) and perpetuated by his three sons, was one of the great Swiss watchmakers best known for their ornate signing bird boxes.

        Watercolor Painting : 'Joseph Brant: The Savage War Chief of the Cherry Valley Massacre' [caption title]

      [American. early 1800s]. Very Good. Watercolor on paper. Image, including manuscript caption, approximately 9 1/2 x 5 inches on a 10 1/4 x 6 3/4 - inch sheet. In a modern metal frame, approximately 17 1/2 x 13 inches, with archivally correct matting. Some evidence of early paste on the verso showing through, some rippling, else very good. The painting shows Mohawk War Chief Jospeh Brant in war paint and a headdress of two red feathers, his right hand raising a tomahawk. Joseph Brant (Indian name Thayendanegea, 1743-1807) was a major Mohawk military and political leader during the American Revolutionary War and Federal Period. Born in present-day Northeast Ohio, he fought for the British forces during the French and Indian War and was subsequently educated at Moor's Charity School, where Eleazar Wheelock wrote with admiration of his intellect and temperament. At the outbreak of the American Revolution, Brant traveled to England, where he met numerous dignitaries, was inducted into the Falcon Lodge of freemasons, and received audience with George III, to whom he pledged his continued loyalty. Returning to America, he led Mohawk warriors and colonial Loyalist soldiers against the Americans, often fighting alongside the Seneca and British. The present painting expresses the greatest of several historical ironies surrounding Brant's life, depicting him as the 'Monster Brant' of the 1778 Cherry Valley Massacre, during which 30 noncombatants were reportedly killed. While a fierce and effective warrior, Brant was, in fact, renowned among both British and American officers for his honor in battle and 'great humanity' toward enemy civilians and prisoners. At Cherry Valley, Brant and his forces tried desperately to prevent a raging group of Seneca warriors who had detached themselves from British command from slaughtering white noncombatants. All military reports of the battle agreed on this point, and his restraint was evident throughout his campaigns in the Mohawk Valley. Nevertheless, his reputation as 'savage' perpetrator of the atrocities at Cherry Valley persisted, particularly in stories that would circulating through the region well after the war. While Brant was the subject of portraits by several major American artists, including Gilbert Stuart, Ezra Ames, and Charles Willson Peale, this painting does not appear to be rendered after a famous original and is likely drawn from imagination - possibly a child's. While the piece may be late 18th-century, the paper on which it is painted suggests a somewhat later date, most likely 1810-1830.

        Ao Serenissimo, Piissimo, Felicissimo, Principe Regente de Portugal, D. João, ornament. prim., esperança, e estabilidade do Brasil ? Canto heroico sobre as façanh. dos Portuguezes na expedição de Tripoli ? traduzido por Manoel Maria de Barbosa du Bocage.

      Lisbon, Offic. da Casa Litteraria do Arco do Cego, 1800. - 103 pp. Facing pages in Latin and Portuguese. 4°, contemporary marbled wrappers. In fine condition. Stamp in blank portion of Portuguese title-page of D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil ("Bibliotecas de S. Magestade Imperial e Real"). ---- Second edition of this poem in Latin (the first also appeared in 1800 from the Arco do Cego press), and first with the Portuguese translation by the well known Arcadian poet Barbosa du Bocage, a friend of the author. It describes the exploits of the Portuguese during their expedition to Tripoli. Cardoso, a native of Bahia, taught Latin there.The Arco do Cego press (officially the Tipografia Chalcografica, Tipoplastica e Literaria, located in Lisbon at the Arco do Cego), was 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. He proposed to do this by publishing Portuguese translations of recent foreign works on those subjects. 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. The Arco do Cego was well equipped, with its own foundry for making type, its own presses and its own designers and engravers, two of whom?Romão Eloy and Ferreira Souto?later introduced the art of engraving to Brazil. After producing a relatively large number of works, it was incorporated in 1801 into the Regia Oficina Typografica, later known as the Impressão Regia and then the Imprensa Nacional.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 151-2; @Período colonial p. 82.

        Fragment of tapa cloth tipped onto old backing with manuscript note "Otaheite Cloth from the bark of Trees

      Tahiti: circa, 1800. Small fragment of Tahitian tapa cloth, approximately 55 x 92 mm., tipped onto a note with an old (eighteenth-century?) manuscript note, in an envelope circa 1900. An early piece of "Otheite" tapa cloth. A rare and fragile piece of Tahitian bark-cloth tapa, probably dating from around 1800 based on the style of the tapa, the paper to which it is tipped, and the manuscript note in an old hand which uses the old-fashioned "Otaheite" spelling (the OED suggests that it was largely obsolete by about 1820, and it is certainly true that it was very early recognised - by Johann Forster and others - that the initial "O" was an article in the Tahitian language, not part of the name). It is, therefore, not likely to date from much later than 1820, and is in fact probably pre-1800, meaning that it is from the earliest phase of the collection of Pacific materials. As a result, this tiny fragment is a reminder of the way in which all manner of artefacts and curiosities were traded and compared in the wake of Cook's voyages and the opening of the Pacific. It may never prove possible to work out whose is the old hand-writing - even though it is very distinctive - but tapa was one of the most sought after relics; Georg Forster, for one, is known to have distributed sheets of the material, most of it cut up into little fragments as here, while the larger sheets issued in the famous Alexander Shaw tapa cloth book of 1787, are now usually seen trimmed and with little corners hacked off them by eager early collectors. Indeed, the present piece is not dissimilar to one of the cloths in Shaw: see the copy in the Mitchell collection of the State Library of New South Wales (online record a1179038, p. 36), captioned in that copy "cinnamon coloured bark cloth from Otaheite". The backing sheet is old wove paper, with the manuscript note in an old hand "Otaheite Cloth from the bark of Trees". The great mystery, of course, is whether this sheet could in fact be contemporary with the tapa collected on Cook's third voyage. It must be said that it is certainly possible, not least considering what we know of its interesting later provenance in the eccentric Henri Ledoux collection, which was famed for its exotic autograph material, and which was particularly good on the major French voyagers such as Louis de Freycinet. A later hand has added an indistinct note about "Haiti" which Ledoux, in turn, has crossed out and replaced with the correct "Tahiti". Ledoux has also added his distinctive heart-shaped red stamp, as well as stamping the little envelope in which he preserved it.

        Mémoire sur cette question: Déterminer la nature et les causes du vent produit par la chute de l'eau dans les trompes dites à la catalanne et assigner les rapports et les différences de ce vent avec celui qui est produit par l'Eolypile. Proposée par l'Académie Royale des Sciences, Inscriptions et Belles Lettres de Toulouse pour Sujet du Prix de l'Année 1789 et renvoyée à l'Année 1792.

      S.l.n.d. (c. 1800). - MANUSCRIT in-4. 496pp. 4 planches hors-texte. Demi-parchemin, dos à nerfs orné (reliure postérieure). Manuscrit original de cet important travail scientifique sur les forges dites "catalanes", entrepris pour répondre au sujet proposé par l'Académie Royale des Sciences de Toulouse pour le prix de l'année 1792. L'auteur de ce manuscrit autographe est Louis Emmanuel Dupuy, personnalité toulousaine éminente à plusieurs titres. Né à Toulouse en 1777 dans une famille modeste, mort, à Toulouse également, en atteignant le grade de Colonel d'Etat-Major, il était membre de l'Académie des Sciences de Toulouse et de la Société Archéologique du Midi, député de la Haute Garonne et il occupa les fonctions de conseiller municipal de sa ville natale. Il était par ailleurs franc-maçon (Loge de la Sagesse de Toulouse) et en 1822 il fonda, avec Jean Raymond Cardes, le directeur des Archives Départementales de la Haute Garonne, une loge du rite de Misraim. Comme il l'indique dans un propos liminaire, Dupuy avait envoyé un premier mémoire pour concourir à ce Prix de 1792, mémoire qui lui avait valu la mention "honorable". "J'ay pensé, ajoute-t-il, que je ne la devais regarder que comme un encouragement et un motif de plus pour faire tous mes efforts afin de tacher de remplir les vues de l'Académie et de parvenir à la solution de la question proposée". Ce sont les nouveaux calculs et les très nombreuses expériences auxquels il se livra afin de traiter le sujet du Prix de façon exhaustive, qui constituent la matière de ce long manuscrit. Le volume est illustré de 45 figures dans le texte dont certaines représentent des instruments scientifiques (anémomètres, etc.), et de 4 planches gravées dépliantes numérotées I à IV. Ces planches proviennent de l'ouvrage intitulé "Traité sur les Mines de Fer et les Forges du Comté de Foix. Par M. de la Peyrouse, Baron de Bazus. Toulouse, 1786". Le manuscrit est très soigneusement calligraphié et présente de nombreuses corrections. Bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        13 erotische Aquarelle des Wiener Biedermeier.

      [Wien, erste Hälfte 19. Jh.].. 13 Bll. Kolorierte Bleistiftzeichnungen auf Papier mit launig gereimten Untertiteln in Tinte, numeriert 3-5, 8, 15-16, 18-20, 2[1] (?), 22, 31 und 32. Jeweils ca. 22 x 16 cm, unter Passepartout.. Curious collection of obscene watercolours, apparently a product of the Austrian Biedermeier period. Three drawings poke fun at the then-famous vaudevillian athlete, juggler and balance artiste Rappo (the Innsbruck-born Karl von Rapp, 1800-53), giving quite a new meaning to the term "show business". Others employ the setting of a trade fair, depicting the city harlots preparing for work and travelling salesmen in pursuit of lewd entertainment. While nearly all drawings are accompanied by tongue-in-cheek couplets, one has no caption, and another is simply entitled "table-tipping" (not the seance kind). In the circus drawings, Rappo's name was first obscured as "R. Appo" and then - rather crudely - changed to the familiar spelling. - A fine, well-preserved collection, apparently a substantial part of a formerly larger set.

Among the purchases were Kemble and Malone, George III and the Duke of Roxburghe (both of whom bought through Nicol) and the Marquess of Bute."-De Ricci, p. 62. "Steevens's major achievements lie in the contributions he made to Shakespeare scholarship, to the study of early English drama, and to the study of Hogarth's work...It is unfortunate that Steevens should be better remembered for his hoaxes and for his attacks on various of his contemporaries rather than for his valuable additions to Shakespeare scholarship."-ODNB.

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.

The text of the first edition was issued simultaneously in octavo and quarto formats, both intended to be accompanied by the folio volume of plates. ìThe quarto volumes seem to have been printed so that they could be uniformly bound with the quarto La P??rouse volumes. The fine atlas volume is much prized as it is scarce and often found lacking from the setî (Hill).ìNo news had been received for three years respecting the ships Boussole and Astrolabe, commanded by M. de la P??rouse, when, early in the year 1791, the attention of the Constituent Assembly was called to the fate of that navigator and his companions. On February 9, 1791 a decree was passed on the subject, which directed (inter alia) that the King be petitioned to give orders for the fitting out of one or more ships, equipped with men of science, naturalists and draughtsmen, with the two-fold mission of searching for M. de la PÃ?rouse and of making inquiries relative to the sciences and to commerce...Proceeding via the Cape of Good Hope to Tasmania, extensive investigations of its coastline were made. New Caledonia, the Solomon Islands, the Admiralty Islands, Tonga, New Britain and other groups were visited, but although most searching inquiries were made, no trace of the missing navigator was found...The expedition made several important contributions to geographical knowledge, and the investigations of the naturalists into the productions of countries visited were of special valueî (Ferguson 307). LabillardiÃ?re was one of the naturalists accompanying the expedition; his is the first published account of this very important Pacific voyage.Ferguson, Australia, 307 and 682. Hill II, pp. 469-470.

Zwei sehr seltene Privatdrucke auf Schreibpapier für Zar Paul I., wohl aus der Hofdruckerei in St. Petersburg. Hans Karl Ehrenfried [Ivan Ivanovich] von Diebitsch[-Nahrten; 1738-1822; Vater des berühmt gewordenen Hans Karl Friedrich Anton v. Diebitsch-Sabalkansky] "wurde 1765 Adjutant und Quartiermeister-Lieutnant in der Suite König Fridrichs II.; im Jahre 1792 stand er bei der oberschlesischen Füsilier-Brigade als Major, und trat damals mit dem Obristenlieutnantsrange in kaiserl. russische Dienste. [... Er] schrieb auf Kaiser Paul's Befehl eine specielle Zeit- und Geschäftseintheilung König Friedrichs II.; eine Schrift, welche unverkennbar das Gepräge eines treuen und wohlunterrichteten Berichterstatters trägt." (Zedlitz, Neues preussisches Adels-Lexicon, S. 414). Erstdrucke beider Texte. Wohl einzige Ausgabe der 'Sammlung verschiedener Nachrichten von militairischen Verfassungen'. Von der "Zeit- und Geschäftseintheilung" erschienen mehrere Auflagen. Im Titel der 2. Auflage (St. Petersburg, Schnoor, 1802) heißt es dazu: "von dem General-Major und Ritter Baron von Diebitsch entworfen und nur in wenigen Exemplairs zum alleinigen Allerhöchsten Gebrauch im Jahr 1800 abgedruckt, mit Allerhöchst Kayserlicher gnädigster Erlaubniß, nach dem Wunsch hoher Gönner von dem Verfasser dem neuen Abdruck übergeben." Diese Zeit- und Geschäftseinteilung wird häufig fälschlicherweise Karl Friedrich Wilhelm v. Diebitsch (1770-1838) zugeschrieben, was wohl auf den Eintrag bei Recke-Napiersky I, 428 zurückgeht. Auch die 1918 im Insel-Verlag unter dem Titel "Friedrichs des Grossen Tagewerk" erschienene Neuauflage benennt falsch Karl Friedrich Wilhelm als Verfasser. - Ganz vereinzelt minimal fleckig; in I. drei Blätter mit Knickspuren; in II. die beiden letzten Blätter mit Wasserfleck. - I.: Henning, Bibliographie Friedrich der Große, S. 214 (ungenau); II.: Henning, Bibliographie Friedrich der Große, S. 300 (falsch: 1801); vgl.: Cat. de la section des Russica [...] en langues etrangeres, D 497 (Ausg. 1802); beide Titel nicht im Svodnyj katalog knig na innostrannych jazikov [...] (1701-1800).
