This intellectual school revolutionised medicine in ancient Greece, establishing it as a discipline distinct from other fields that it had traditionally been associated with (notably theurgy and philosophy), thus establishing medicine as a profession.

Schröders bibliotek, med hans biblioteksetikett, och ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Setterwall 7560. Emanuel Friedrich Hagemeister (1764-1819) från Greifswald var tysk rättslärd och ingick bland annat i den av Frankrike tillsatta provisoriska regeringen i svenska Pommern och i den kommission som upprättades i Stockholm och Örebro för omgestaltning av den svensk-pommerska lagstiftningen. Den gamla tyska feodalrätten reformerades 1806 och bl.a. avskaffades livegenskapen. Historieprofessorn Johan Henrik Schröders (1791-1857) bibliotek, "fullt af gamla sällsynta svenska böcker", såldes på bokauktion i Uppsala efter tryckt förteckning. Enligt Henrik Klemming rådde auktionsdagen sådan snöyra i Uppsala att många, både anbud och spekulanter, inte kunde komma fram till auktionen i tid. Böckerna såldes ofta mycket billigt

        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. 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.

        [LETTER, SIGNED BY JOHN MARSHALL AS SECRETARY OF STATE, WRITTEN TO TURRELL TUFTS, THE AMERICAN CONSUL IN SURINAM, IN WHICH MARSHALL DISCUSSES THE SOUTH AMERICAN SLAVE TRADE]

      Washington. Dec. 19, 1800.. 2pp. plus integral address leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Some wear and minor loss to address leaf. Minor soiling. Very good. In a red half morocco folder, spine gilt. A month before his nomination as Chief Justice, Secretary of State John Marshall writes to Turrell Tufts, the American consul at Surinam, cautioning his diplomatic efforts and commenting on the slave trade in South America. Like Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, John Marshall himself owned slaves. In Marshall's native state of Virginia, slaves had become and integral part of the agricultural- based economy. Marshall, however, detested slavery and publicly declared it an evil, calling for a gradual emancipation. Yet the South, despite growing moral objections, became more and more dependent on slavery and as this letter illustrated, afforded the opportunity for American slave traders to travel to South America in order to purchase slaves from the large coffee and sugar plantations. He writes: "I have received your letter, dated October last, and several others, evincing your zeal and alertness in the service of your country. I should have before acknowledged your attention, but for the belief, founded on your communications, that you would soon leave the Colony. It is highly to be regretted, that the unsettled state of affairs at Surinam, and the disingenuous conduct of some of the persons in authority, should have given you so many occasions of complaint and disgust. In such a situation, whilst with a becoming spirit of firmness and perseverance, you endeavour to repel the wrongs of your Countrymen, you will never lose sight of that respectful manner in your addresses to the Officers of the Government, where you reside from the force of your representations. I do not mean this hint as an admonition, but only as a caution, suggested by the state of the correspondence between you and them. Every thing beyond temperate remonstrance must be left for arrangement between the two governments. "Any instructions applicable to the state of things at Surinam more than the above intimation and your standing instructions are rendered unnecessary, by the manner in which you have executed your office. I will only for the present ask your vigilant attention to detect any of our Citizens engaging directly or indirectly in the slave trade. In every such case, you will make it a duty to transmit to this Department an exact account of every fact in relation to that subject, which may come to your knowledge, to the end that the laws may be enforced against offenders." Turrell Tufts was appointed by President John Adams to the Consulate at Surinam in 1799, and it would seem that it may have been a difficult fit for Tufts, a Medford, Massachusetts native. It is a post that he nevertheless held until 1820, when he returned to his native home to live his life out in gentlemanly fashion. John Marshall served as Secretary of State for a mere eight months before being appointed to the Supreme Court, also by President John Adams. An interesting and insightful letter, highlighting the difficulties in dealing with eager junior officers in the diplomatic corps and Marshall's own desire to keep the slave trade from America's shore.

Given the ephemeral nature of these books, particulary considering the juvenile readership, these copies are well preserved; complete set are scarce and seldom offered. (Bibliographic note: "The infant's library was published in around 1800. It was one of the earliest of the nineteenth-century collections of miniature books to be aimed specifically at children, and came [also] in its own custom-made wooden bookcase...The collection comprises 16 volumes, each measuring approximately 6x4.5 cm and comprising one stitched gathering of either 32 or 64 pages. Each volume is bound in a different coloured paper, with a cut-out ornamental label on both front and back. The covers are not consistent within different extant copies of the collection; it seems that the binder simply used the nearest colour and label to hand for any particular volume. All but 2 of the volumes are illustrated throughout, with woodcuts and engravings facing the descriptive text. The first 15 volumes are numbered and cover various subjects suitable for young readers, including the alphabet; a reading book dividing words into syllables; games for girls and games for boys; flowers; animals; buildings; domestic objects; and various volumes of oudoor scenes (a farmer, a man leading a horse, a windmill and many more). The final volume is entitled A short history of England for the Infant's library, and is in fact a summary account of the rulers of England from 1066 until the time of publication, finishing with "Our present most gracious sovereign George III and his amiable consort Queen Charlotte". The texts are anonymous, as was often the case with works for children written by otherwise well-known authors, perhaps to protect their reputations. The author does present him (or her-) self in the introduction to vol. 3: "To ---. My dear, These little volumes I dedicate to you, as they were principally intended for your amusement, and when you are acquainted with the source from whence they came, you will know how very dear you are to The Author"...The volumes were advertised in 1801 in copies of the Juvenile Child's Library, a journal issued by Marshall, at six shillings for the complete set, but could also be purchased individually...Other editions of the Library survive from 1819, 1821 and 1830 (although Cambridge University Library holds only the first edition), and there were also versions produced with French, German and Latin texts; only one copy of the Latin is known." Notes taken from The University of Cambridge website. The later editions were reset and the woodcut illustrations often hand-coloured] . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 32mo.

      VIENNA, SCHRAEMBL, 1800Grandiosa coppia di incisioni originali eseguite su matrice di rame, colorate all'acquerello d'epoca lungo i confini; titoli e scale metriche extra-immagini ai bordi superiore e inferiore. Le due rare mappe rappresentano rispettivamente il Polo Nord e il Polo Sud con raffigurazione dei territori estesi fino all'Equatore. Schrambl, fu importante cartografo austriaco che collaborò con Von Reilly, il più rinomato tra i cartografi del suo paese. Pubblicò a partire dal 1786 l' Allgemeiner Grosser Atlas che terminò nel 1800 con più di 200 carte al suo interno. Opera monumentale e di grande valore geografico, essendosi avvalsa esclusivamente delle più recenti scoperte geografiche successive Cook, per il suo alto costo di produzione ne fu limitata molto molto la tiratura e quindi la diffusione, rendendo le carte che la compongono molto rare a trovarsi sul mercato. Esemplari in perfette condizioni dagli ampi margini inferiori e superiori, volendo, si possono unire a formare una sola carta dei due poli.

        Lyrical Ballads,

      London: for T. N. Longman and O. Rees, by Biggs and Co. Bristol,, 1800. with Other Poems. In two volumes. 2 volumes, octavo (157 × 96 mm). Early 19th-century purple straight-grain morocco, spines gilt-lettered direct, raised bands, elaborately blind in compartments; sides with two line gilt fillet enclosing elaborate blind decorative roll, sprinkled endpapers, gilt edges. Gathering D , vol. 2, foxed, else clean and fresh, a very good copy in a handsome early binding. First complete edition of the foundational publication of the Romantic movement, comprising the second edition of vol. 1 and the first of vol. 2. The first volume had first been published in 1798 in Bristol (the first issue known only in 15 surviving copies). This 1800 edition (though actually published in January 1801) is almost doubled in size and is the first to contain Wordsworth's famous preface, or manifesto, with its definition of poetry as "the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings … emotion recollected in tranquillity". The 1800 edition marked Wordsworth's greater self-confidence, though still acknowledging Coleridge's contribution of such poems as "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", though that poem is here cleaned of some of its archaisms and tucked in towards the end of the volume, just before "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey". The second volume is the first issue, with the original setting of p. 210 (O1v).

      Paris: Printed by Testu for Blanchon, [1799-1800] - 5 volumes bound in 6, Quarto (257 x 202 mm). Contemporary tree calf, covers with a gilt roll border, spines decorated gilt in compartments, with red and green labels. Joints rubbed and cracked in places, some surface wear and worm damage to covers and corners, minor chipping to some spine ends. Evidence of marginal dampstaining to the final hundred pages of volume two and the first hundred pages of volume three. Withal a very good set. With three folding tables and numerous statistical tables within the text. First edition of this monumental work, "an important link in the long chain of economic or semi-economic dictionaries" (Schumpeter), which was originally projected by Peuchet's friend, the Abbé Andre Morellet. In 1769 Morellet published his Prospectus d'un nouveau dictionnaire de commerce, containing a 34-page supplement, the catalogue of Morellet's own library, which "has generally been considered the first bibliography of economic literature" (Carpenter, An Exploration in bibliographies of economics, p. 2). Morellet's planned dictionary never appeared, but Peuchet made substantial use of his notes, and thus this work may be considered a joint venture with Morellet. McCulloch notes that "there can be no doubt, had the projected Dictionary made its appearance, that it would have been infinitely superior to that of Savary, or any other that had then been published. Morellet continued to occupy himself with this gigantic enterprise down to the Revolution, when he was compelled finally to abandon it" (The Literature of political economy, p. 62). McCulloch was clearly unaware of Peuchet's Dictionnaire, since neither his Literature, nor his own library catalogue makes mention of it. Goldsmiths' 17604; Kress B.3958; Schumpeter, p. 138; not in Einaudi or Menger. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Two 18th century or, more probably, early 19th century, oval, 220 x 150 mms., embroidered pictures of "Emma Corbett," heroine of the first English novel about the American Revolution

      [?Philadelphia] [c.1800]. These embroideries are possibly the work of Samuel Folwell (1764 - 1813), the American miniaturist, silhouettist, engraver, and hair worker. In any case, they are very much in the style of needlework and embroideries produced by Folwell and his wife, Ann Elizabeth Gebler Folwell. In the first embroidery, Emma sits contentedly under a tree holding a garland of flowers, with a basket of flowers at her feet. She wears a long flowing white gown, and her long curly hair (very much in the style of the 1790s) is decked out with flowers. In the background is a road and gate leading to a farm house. The second picture is a fine example of the iconography of mourning so popular in America after the death of George Washington in 1799. In this one, a forlorn woman sits under a tree in front of a tombstone which reads "In Memory of Emma Corbett." There are withered and dead leaves around her and in the background is a house with a thatched roof. Both textiles have some loss to the background, sky, but are otherwise in very good condition. This second textile exhibits many elements of the iconography of mourning of a type often associated with the death of Washington, but they might have been done before his death. The illustration of a woman grieving in front of a tombstone seems to be clearly patterned after a painting by Angelica Kauffman (1741 - 1807), Virtue Weeping at the Tomb of Emma Corbett, an engraving of which was published by Robert Wilkinson, London, 7 August 1786; and another engraving of "Emma Corbett" was published by Laurie and Whittle of London in 1794. It is difficult, of course, to have a firm attribution to Folwell, or even to his school; but they are more consistent with the work that he was doing than with English examples. Moreover, the iconography of mourning seems to have been particularly pervasive in post-colonial America. Finally, if the embroideries post-date the death of Washington, it seems unlikely that the English would have felt comfortable with the stylistic allusions to the iconographic illustrations of mourning for Washington. Samuel Jackson Pratt published Emma Corbett, or, The Miseries of Civil War, anonymously in 1780; it was translated into French in 1783, and ran into many editions (16 in the 18th century). The above embroideries are sold with: PRATT (Samuel Jackson): Emma Corbett. By Mr. Pratt. The Ninth Edition, with elegant frontispieces. London: printed for T. Becket, 1789. 2 volumes. Large 12mo, 182 x 112 mms., pp. viii, 264; 259 [260 blank], including half-title in volume 1, engraved frontispiece (by P. W. Tomkins and Thomas Burke after Angelica Kaufman) in each volume, attractively bound in contemporary speckled calf, gilt spines, brown and black morocco labels, gilt borders on covers; front covers slightly scored, but a fine set, with the early bookplate of Robert Dymond, of Bolton Hall on the front paste-down end-paper in each volume. Pratt (1749 - 1814) published just this one novel, an extremely popular epistolary sentimental novel, set in North America at the time of the Revolution. As originally published in Bath, in 1780, the novel had a subtitle, "Miseries of the Civil War," and it was additionally described as "founded on some recent circumstances which happened in America." It was the first full-length novel to have as its subject the American Revolution. In 1783, for the fifth edition, the text was compressed to two volumes (but still not closely printed), and provided with a frontispiece in each volume after a design by Angelica Kauffman, an artist who was very popular in her day, but did little in the way of book illustration. This appears to be the last edition to contain these plates.

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

      London: 25 March 1800. A pair of colour printed stipple engravings. Image size: 23 1/8 x 18 3/4 inches. 26 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches approx. 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.

        The Fruits of early Industry & Oeconomy; Industry and Oeconomy

      London: 25 March 1800. Stipple engravings. Image size: 23 1/8 x 18 3/4 inches. 26 5/8 x 21 inches approx. A beautiful pair of stipple engravings by George Morland conveying the concept that dedication and industry provide reward and happiness. 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 subtly the tender side of English country life. Singleton's work was extremely popular during his lifetime, and the present image certainly shows that he merited that popularity. The original was probably produced as a commission from Darcis as Singleton is known to have come to specialise in works that were intended as artwork for engravers. 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 Industrious Apprentice'. The present pair are specifically described by Samuel Collings' verses which appear with the title beneath each image.

This lovely image is the first plate in a set of four hunting mezzotints engraved by Edward Bell after paintings by George Morland. 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.

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. This beautiful print is the first plate in a set of four mezzotints engraved by Edward Bell in the spring of 1800. Primarily a genre painter, Morland only produced a few sporting paintings during his career and this beautiful set is considered some of his best work. The image depicts the moment before the hunt; the riders have gathered in front of a local farmhouse before they proceed with the chase. Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints p. 190

        RICHARDSON'S THEATRE...WHEN WILL BE PERFORMED A NEW ASIATIC MELO DRAME, CALLED THE AFRICANS OR, THE DESOLATE ISLAND...[caption title]

      London: Hughes, [nd, likely ca. 1800].. Broadside, 10 x 7 inches. Printed on blue tinted paper, mounted onto a large later sheet. Near fine. Expertly matted, and protected with mylar sheet. An engaging broadside for a theatre performance centered around a drama called "The Africans." The scenery for the play is taken from the work of the intrepid British explorer, Mungo Park, and features views of the African coast and interior, "Omai's Cave," and warrior huts. The characters include Omai (an African Chief, evidently confusing him with the famed Omai from the South Seas), warriors named Wahedooa, Tongataboo, Tiaiarboo, and Kiahiargo, and a Princess named Terapo. The bill promises an evening in which "the retributive hand of Providence will manifest its abhorrence of Vice; and Virtue and Constancy eventually triumphant." A pantomime called "Harlequin Traveller; or a Trip Round the World" would also be performed, the whole evening culminating with a grand panoramic view of the Rock of Gibraltar.

        Italy with the Addition of The Southern Parts of Germany as far as Pettau in Stiria; Murlakia, Dalmatia, The Adjacent Countries and All The Illyric Islands

      London, 1800. unbound. Map on two sheets. Engraving with original hand coloring. Each image measures 24 3/4" x 42 1/2". This large and detailed map of Italy includes the main peninsula, as well as Siciily, Sardinia, Corsica, Malta, Dalmatia, Croatia and the Adriatic. It was printed on 4 sheets, joined 2 by 2. Major roads, towns, rivers, lakes, islands, ports, harbors and topographical features are all labeled. The map is on two sheets, with the top half extending from southern Germany to Puglia. In the text below the title, Faden and Delarochette acknowledge D'Anville's 1743 map of Italy as an important predecessor. A key at the left explains the coloring and labeling system. It also includes some geographical information about French, Italian, and other holdings in the region. The bottom half of the map includes Malta, Sicily, and Sardinia, as well as 7 international scales and a key of labeling conventions for roads.Louis Stanislaw d'Arcy Delarochette (1731 - 1802) was a British cartographer and engraver based in late 18th century London. He produced maps in conjunction with various other contemporary British cartographers, such as William Faden (1750 - 1836), also an 18th century English cartographer and publisher. Faden is best known for his important publication of the North American Atlas, which covered a region of particular interest to him. This map is a fruitful result of their collaboration.

        [Versuch einer gründlichen Violinschule] Leopold Mozarts Hochfürstl. Salzburgisch Vice-Kapellmeisters grünliche Violinschule, mit vier Kupfertaflen und einer Tabelle. Vierte vermehrte Auflage

      Augsburg, gedruckt und zu finde ben Johan Jacob Lotter und Sohn, Buchbrucker und Musickalien Verleger, 1800. Small 4to, pp. [vi], 268 [269 - 276 index], engraved frontispiece, three full-page engraved plates, folding engraved plate of music at end, contemporary marbled boards, paper label on spine; repairs to folding plate, engraved frontispiece rather faint, but other plates fine, occasional spotting and staining, but otherwise a very good copy. Leopold Mozart (1719 - 1787) published this in a propitious year for music and music-lovers, 1756, the year of his son's birth. It was republished several times (a second edition appeared in 1770, a third in 1787, and a further edition in 1791), translated into other languages, and became a standard text on the subject of violin playing. In a paper published by the American Mozart Society, Thomas Irvine argues that, "Versuch einer gründlichen Violinschule (1756) is more than a mirror of eighteenth-century violin playing. In this paper I will argue that Mozart's Versuch documents a struggle between two competing models of musical communication, one based on a general semiotics of affect and another based on specific individual responses to music. The conflict between the two is the conflict between rationalist, systematic thinking and what Panajotis Kondylis has called the eighteenth century's 'rehabilitation of the sensual.'" RISM B/VI/2 p. 601.

        La Corbeille de Fruits

      Paris: Tessari et Co, [circa 1800]. Engravings, printed in colours and finished by hand, by Duthé, after 'Huet fils'. 12 1/8 x 14 1/2 inches. 16 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches. A beautifully composed image recalling the bounty that the Fall brings, after an original by one of the three sons of Jean- Baptistse Huet The beautifully observed wicker-work basket bulges with the fruits of the harvest, their weight has made the container unsteady and some of the contents have spilled out onto the slate shelf on which this veritable cornucopia rests. A snail and a hornet investigate: apples, pears, grapes, chestnuts, cherries, tomatoes, white currents and a pomegranate are all available. This highly decorative image is from an original by 'Huet fils' (i.e. 'Huet son'). This narrows the field to three artists, all members of the highly talented French family whose members were active between about 1740 and 1830. Jean-Baptiste Huet (1745-1811) had three sons, all of whom are possible candidates: Nicolas Huet II, born in 1770, who flourished as an artist between about 1788 and 1827, François Huet, born 1772 and died in London in 1813 and finally, Jean-Baptiste Huet II who was born in Paris on 29 December 1772. Because of the use of 'fils' Jean-Baptiste the second is the most likely candidate. Until his father's death the easiest way to differentiate the two artists of the same name would have been to call the younger 'the son'.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Wittenberg, 7. XII. 1800. - 8vo. 1 p. on double leaf. Fine letter of the "father of acoustics" to his publisher Breitkopf & Härtel concerning two articles for the periodical "Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung" ("General music journal"), one of which is a review of Dalberg's work which was published in this year. His review, Chladni demands, shall be printed beyond his name; however, he was not successful for it was printed anonymously (vol. III, 1801, col. 196-200). - The second article (which was in fact "Ueber die wahre Ursache des Consonirens und Dissonirens") can be divided into two parts due to his lenght (col. 337-343 and 353-359). Moreover, he promises to send his review of Grétrys "Versuche über die Musik" ("Experiments in music"). - Tiny folding, and somewhat browned. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
