        MEMORIA SOBRE LOS MEDIOS QUE PODRÁN ADOPTARSE PARA FOMENTAR LAS HACIENDAS EN ÓRDEN AL GANADO VACUNO Y MULAR].

      [Havana: Esteban Boloña, 1800]. - [6],27,[7]pp. Dbd. Lacking titlepage, with alternate title in manuscript on front cover leaf. Stab holes along gutter margin. Some offsetting on and front and rear cover leaves from other manuscript documents, final printed page with additional manuscript annotation. Browned and foxed. Good. An exceedingly scarce 1800 Havana imprint that publishes a tract from 1797 that delivers instructions and suggests potential improvements for animal husbandry in Cuba. The author, Juan Antonio Morejon, offers advice on the raising of cattle and mules, gives guidance for increasing reproduction, and provides sample budgets outlining the costs for Cuban haciendas of following his guidelines. "Sobre uno y otro punto diré, no solo aquello conduce al mayor aumento de las haciendas, sino tambien á mejorar sus crianzas, pues la felicidad que buscamos, no debe consistir unicamente en la abundancia, sin el requisito de bondad, á qué és tan inclinado nuestro suelo."

         Traité... des airs, des eaux et des lieux traduction nouvelle avec le texte grec collationné sur deux manuscrits, des notes critiques, historiques et médicales .... un tableau comparatif... une carte & les index nécessaires par Coray.

      Paris, impr. de Baudelot et Eberhart, 1800, 2 vol. in 8°, de 2ff. CLXXX-170pp. 1f. & 2ff. 484pp., ill. d'un grand tableau se dépl. et d'une carte gravée se dépl., demi-veau brun romantique, dos orné, petit manque à un mors sup., qq. très rares rouss. sinon bon exemplaire. Célèbre édition érudite bilingue donnée par le Dr. A. Coray, né en 1748 à Smyrne et diplômé de la faculté de médecine de Montpellier. Émile Littré, dira de cette édition critique : "En sa triple qualité de Grec, de médecin et d'helléniste, Coray était plus propre qu'aucun autre à donner une édition du Traité des Airs, des Eaux et des Lieux ; et j'ai cru ne pouvoir trop puiser à une source d'érudition aussi abondante et aussi sûre...". Les notes purement philologiques, sont en effet des modèles de critique littéraire et méritent des éloges sans réserve. Le "traité des Airs, des Eaux et des Lieux" se divise en deux sections : la première consacrée à l'étude des influences extérieures sur l'organisme ; la seconde, à l'étude de ces mêmes influences sur les facultés morales de l'homme, sur les institutions des peuples et le caractère des nations. Hippocrate y défend l'idée que c'est le climat, le milieu géographique, l'alimentation qui expliquent les différences entre les peuples. Montesquieu dota la théorie des climats d'une force retentissante en l'appliquant au seul domaine politique. La théorie des climats apparaîtra une dernière fois dans la philosophie allemande de Herder et Hegel. ¶ Brunet III. 175 "traduction très estimée".

        Schweizerisches Idiotikon. Wörterbuch der schweizerdeutschen Sprache. 15 Bde. (I-XVI ) u. 1 Bd.: Registerbd. (für die Bde.: I - XI) u. 1 Bd.: Quellen -und Abkürzungsverzeichnis.. (17 Bde., compl.).

      4, j e ca. 1000 S., HLdr.(Lederimitat) mit Goldprägung., Etwas berieben, sonst tadell. - Das Schweizerisches Idiotikon das grösste Regionalwörterbuch des Deutschen, ist aus einem Idiotikon schweizerdeutscher Wörter längst zu einem umfassenden Wörterbuch des Schweizerdeutschen geworden, ja in gewissem Grad zu einem Reallexikon oder Thesaurus. Es erschliesst sowohl den Wortschatz der zum Teil sehr altertümlichen Dialekte der deutschen Schweiz (inkl. Walsermundarten Oberitaliens) als auch die schriftliche Überlieferung dieses Gebiets seit dem 12. Jahrhundert, besonders gründlich die des 15. und 16. Jahrhundert dabei sind namentlich Landwirtschaft, Jagd, Fischerei und Gewerbe, Sachkultur und Volksleben, Recht und Dichtung berücksichtigt, auch Volkslieder, Kinderreime, Bauernregeln usw., sodann die Sondersprachen der Schüler, Studenten, Soldaten und Fahrenden.Die einzelnen Wörter sind zufolge der lautlichen Vielfalt gemäss dem Schmellerschen System in erster Linie nach der Herkunft angeordnet und semantisch aufeinander bezogen dadurch werden nicht nur die Bedeutungsentwicklung jedes Wortes, sondern auch dessen Stellenwert und Leistung innerhalb der Wortsippe sichtbar. Vielfache Verweisungen auf Synonyme und begriffsnahe Wörter erschliessen Wortfelder der Gegenwart oder früherer Zeit. Wo möglich (durchwegs für die Sprache vor 1800) sind die Wörter im Satzzusammenhang geboten daher ist auch Phraseologie und Idiomatik berücksichtigt. Den Appellativen sind in reichem Masse entsprechende lebende und urkundliche Namen (Personen- und Lokalnamen) angeschlossen.Da der Grundstock des Mundartmaterials in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts dank der Mitarbeit von gegen 400 Korrespondenten zusammengekommen ist, kann das Werk sonst kaum beschriebene und heute weitgehend verschwundene Bereiche der sprachlichen, geistigen und materiellen Kultur dieser Zeit besonders gut dokumentieren. Es ist Arbeitsinstrument für verschiedenste Wissensgebiete wie Sprach-, Geschichts- und Rechtswissenschaft, Volks- und Namenkunde. Geographisch umfasst das Bearbeitungsgebiet die deutsche Schweiz einschliesslich der Walserorte in Norditalien. Das Gesamtwerk ( Bd. 16 erscheint 2010, Bd. 17 erst 2020) wird 17 Bände umfassen. Auf den Abschluss hin sind Arbeiten an einem alphabetischen und einem grammatischen Gesamtregister in Gang.Versandkostenfrei für Europa. (Beiliegend: Quellen- u.

        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). Preserved in a box. ? Goff S-308. Klebs 889.2. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE PROSPECT BEFORE US. VOLUME I.

      Richmond: Printed for the Author, and Sold by M. Jones, S. Pleasants, Jun. and J. Lyon, 1800. 184pp. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards. Contemporary ink signature on titlepage. Minor foxing and toning. Very good. The passionate and extraordinarily rare anti-Federalist screed from the "scandalmonger" himself, James T. Callender, suppressed by the Federalists who convicted him for sedition for writing it. Callender was a notorious journalist and political pamphleteer during the Federal period, issuing savage attacks on George Washington, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, and others. The present work was partially financed by Vice President Thomas Jefferson who was, along with James Madison, actively working against the president and his Federalist cohorts. Jefferson had been particularly impressed with Callender's attack on Hamilton, and wanted a similar work scrutinizing the Adams administration, especially as he was running against the incumbent president at the time. The pamphlet is an attack on the political corruption within the Federalist party and inside the Adams administration, with Callender focusing his ire on the president himself. He labels the president a "hoary headed incendiary," "a man who has deserted and reversed all principles," and describes the Adams administration as "one continued tempest of malignant passions. As President, he has never opened his lips, or lifted his pen without threatening and scolding; the grand object of his administration has been to exasperate the rage of contending parties to calumniate and destroy every man who differs from his opinions...." As a result of this pamphlet, Adams' and Hamilton's Federalist party used the new Sedition Act to prosecute Callender at the height of the 1800 election campaign, citing twenty passages from THE PROSPECT BEFORE US in the indictment (though never naming the book itself). After a frustrating and politically-charged trial stacked clearly against the defendant, presided over by Federalist judge Samuel Chase, who frequently interrupted the defense lawyers, and consisting of an all-Federalist jury, Callender was found guilty. He was fined $200 and sentenced to nine months in prison. Callender was the last and most famous target of the Sedition Act, and the only defendant prosecuted under the law in a southern state. After Jefferson's election the new President pardoned Callender, but refused the writer's request to receive a lucrative postmaster's appointment. Callender then switched sides, revenging himself by spilling the details of Jefferson and his mulatto mistress Sally Hemings. In 1803, while drunk, he drowned in a shallow sidewater of the James River. The shadowy circumstances of his death, combined with the many powerful enemies he had made, led to numerous Vince Foster-like conspiracy theories. This copy of THE PROSPECT BEFORE US bears the ownership signature of Founding Father Theodorus Bailey, who represented New York in both the House and Senate between 1793 and 1804. Bailey also served in the New York Militia during the Revolution and attained the rank of brigadier general in the New York State Militia, where he served from 1786 until 1805. Intriguingly, Bailey was an anti-Federalist and member of Jefferson's Democratic- Republican Party. As such, he would have had a particular interest in the subject matter of this book. The first part of THE PROSPECT BEFORE US was popular and welcome in Virginia at the time of publication, but roundly criticized and suppressed in Philadelphia and elsewhere. As a result, the work is extremely rare, and hardly ever encountered outside institutions. James Morton Smith, "Sedition in the Old Dominion: James T. Callender and THE PROSPECT BEFORE US." THE JOURNAL OF SOUTHERN HISTORY. Vol. 20, No. 2 (May 1954), pp.157-182. HOWES C72. EVANS 37083. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 271. BRINLEY 4790. William Safire's novel SCANDALMONGER, (2000) is a lively fictional treatment of Callender's career and a must-read for any enthusiast of the Federal era.

        [Ten portraits of horses]

      Rotterdam, ca. 1800. Ten original engravings (ca. 15.0 x 12.0 cm), all but one mounted on contemporary paper (ca. 27.0 x 21.5 cm).l This is a collection of ten drawings made by the Dutch artist Gerrit Malleyn (1753-1816) - who specialized in drawing horses - and engraved by the Dutch artist, Johannes Adriaanz Bemme (1775-1841). Bemme was renowned for his horse engravings and engraved nearly all the horses in J. F. Teupken's "Beschrijving hoedanig de Koninklijke Nederlandsche troepen en alle in militaire betrekking staande personen gekleed, geëquipeerd en gewapend zijn" ("Description of the Royal Dutch troops and all military related people and their clothes, equipment and arms" see Landwehr, 455). The illustrations are quite lively and show horses in different moods. Impressions strong, paper quality good. A nice collection. Complete suites, with 12 engravings, are very rare but single engravings are quite uncommon too.

        Rélation du Voyage à la Recherche de La Pérouse, fait par ordre de l'Assemblée Constituante, pendant les années 1791, 1792, et pendant la 1ère et la 2de année de la République Françoise

      Paris: H.J. Jansen, 1800. In good condition in original bindings.. Two volumes, large quarto, with folio atlas containing 44 engraved plates and maps; an excellent uniform set, the text completely untrimmed, in original buff boards. First edition of the narrative by the naturalist on the d'Entrecasteaux expedition, in which Australia was fully circumnavigated, if sometimes at a distance, and the islands surrounding investigated for traces of La Pérouse. Labillardière, botanist on the voyage, remains an important figure in early Australian science as the author of the first extensive monograph on Australian botany. The voyage spent many months on the coasts of Western Australia, just a year after Vancouver's visit, and made two long visits to Tasmania, charting, botanising and exploring the coasts. The visits are remembered in numerous place names, most notably Recherche Archipelago and Recherche Bay, named for the expedition's ship. Labillardière's account is one of very few eighteenth-century accounts of Australian exploration, and the only major French account of the continent in the early settlement period to be published in the same century. The important narrative based on the commander d'Entrecasteaux's papers, did not appear until 1808.The work is particularly interesting for its descriptions (and illustrations) of Tasmania, Tonga, New Caledonia, and New Guinea, and the atlas contains outstanding views of these areas by the official artist Piron. Included is the famous engraving of the black swan. the first large depiction of the exotic Australian bird. Fourteen botanical plates, all by or produced under the direction of Redouté, the most famous of all botanical artists, include two of Eucalypts and two of Banksias.It was a notable voyage in itself, although also beset by tragedy: the commander, d'Entrecasteaux, died of a 'dreadful cholic' shortly before the expedition collapsed in Batavia. There they learned of the French Revolution, and D'Auribeau, then commander, and the principal officers being monarchists, put themselves under Dutch protection, arrested the remainder of the officers, including Labillardière the naturalist, and Piron the artist, and disposed of the ships. D'Auribeau in turn died, and was succeeded by Rossel, who managed to return to Europe and later edited the manuscripts for the official account. The papers and natural history specimens were seized en route and carried to England, but in 1796, with the urging of Sir Joseph Banks, were returned to France under a flag of truce.Because Labillardière was a Republican, his account appeared first, while that of d'Entrecasteaux had to wait until the restoration of the monarchy. The atlas appeared a year earlier than the text.

        Historical Account of the Substances which have been used to Describe Events and to Convey Ideas from the Earliest Date to the Invention of Paper. Printed on the First Useful Paper manufactured soley from Straw

      91 pp. Small folio, orig. edition binding of straight-grained blue morocco (joints a little rubbed), spine stamped in blind. [London]: T. Burton, 1800. First edition, and a very fine copy in the original edition binding of blue straight-grained morocco, of this classic work on the search for new materials to manufacture paper. This copy has been signed by Koops at the bottom of the dedication leaf. At the same time as the first papermaking machines, invented in France, were being built in England, Koops was experimenting with the use of straw and wood for papermaking in Bermondsey. He succeeded in the first, large-scale, commercial production of paper made from straw and wood. Koops was given permission by the King to be the only distributor of paper made from alternative paper sources in the hope that he could help solve England's paper crisis; however, the times were not right for this early attempt at recycling and Koops went bankrupt. The book describes ancient equivalents of paper, methods that had been tried over the ages to find paper which would withstand the attack of insects, data on French exports of paper into England, and commentary on Koops' attempts to produce paper from sources other than rags. "Not much is known of Koops, but his work as a experimenter with new papermaking materials at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution is justly famous. He writes of the work of Schäffer, Guettard, de Lisle, Seba, and Senger in the search for new materials, and spends much time discussing the use of conferva for papermaking fibers although emphasizing the availability of straw."-Schlosser, An Exhibition of Books on Papermaking, 21. Fine copy. The two preliminary and two terminal endpapers are also made from wood. With the signature in pencil of Sir Francis Freeling, secretary of the Post Office and an original member of the Roxburghe Club. Armorial bookplate of Joseph Neeld (1754-1828), and the modern bookplate of A.R.A. Hobson. ? Hunter, The Literature of Papermaking, pp. 47-48.

Burke eloquently, as usual, argues against government interference in the form of assistance programs and burdensome administrations that would bring about. Burke's argument was published posthumously by those who opposed similar measures that were being proposed in 1800.

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

      London: Hughes, 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.

        Voyage in search of La Pérouse, performed by order of the Constituent Assembly, during the years 1791, 1792, 1973, and 1794

      London: John Stockdale, 1800. Joints of the binding cracked but quite firm.. Quarto, with 45 plates and a folding map; occasional light spotting; a very attractive copy, bound without the final advertisement leaf in old half polished calf; top edge gilt, others untrimmed. A fine, large copy with wide margins of the best and most complete English edition, published as a quarto; smaller octavo editions appeared in the same year. The introduction to this English edition raises the question 'Whether, as has hitherto generally happened, the advantages of civilisation may not, in the progress of events, be transferred from the Europeans, who have but too little prized them, to those remote countries which they have been so diligently exploring? If so, the period may arrive, when New Zealand may produce her Lockes, and Newtons, her Montesquieus; and when great nations in the immense region of New Holland, may send their navigators, philosophers, and antiquaries, to contemplate the ruins of ancient London, and Paris, and to trace the languid remains of the arts and sciences in this quarter of the globe. Who can tell, whether the rudiments of some great empire may not already exist at Botany Bay?'
