GREGOIRE (Abbé Henri)
Paris, Imprimerie-Librairie chrétienne, s.d. [1801]. In-8, broché, couverture de papier bulle ancien, 40 p. Rarissime édition originale et première version de ce texte qui sera profondément revu par l'abbé Grégoire en sa seconde édition (1806). A l'exemple de l'Angleterre, la France devrait conserver les ruines des institutions monastiques. Grégoire illustre son propos en choisissant le cas de Port-Royal des Champs, berceau du jansénisme, et évoque les grandes figures qui hantent ces ruines: Pascal, Arnaud, Nicole, La Bruyère, Racine, etc. Ce choix n'est pas un hasard pour Grégoire qui, toute sa vie durant, fut un janséniste convaincu. Cinq Lettres sur 'l’Augustinus' composées par Grégoire à la fin de 1805, récemment découvertes et publiées par Jean Dubray (2015), contiennent une véritable profession de foi janséniste qui éclaire les rapports anciens et étroits de l'auteur avec la théologie augustinienne. La vie, l'oeuvre et les engagements de l'abbé Grégoire ne prennent tout leur sens que dans le cadre de cet idéal. (Monglond, V, 491). Quelques rousseurs éparses. Bon exemplaire.

1801. Magnificent copy of this edition of bibliophiles, through which the publisher and printer Léon Curmer (1801-1870) became known. This work is distinguished above all by the extraordinary quality of the reproductions in view of the technical qualities of the time, but also by the precision and accuracy of the comments and descriptions that accompany it. The first 2 volumes include 401 color chromolithographs from Livres of hours and manuscripts, with particular attention to the rendering of miniatures, borders and other decorations. The volume of appendix to the Gospels contains the list of subscribers, the first of which is Napoléon III himself. This volume also contains thanksgiving illustrated with 80 original photographs after old copperplate engravings; these illustrations make it one of the first Livres illustrated by photography; the notices, the ornamentation of the appendix, the classification of the various schools of painting of the manuscripts. Pierre Larousse will say in his dictionary: "M. Curmer has undertaken the color reproduction of old manuscripts. He succeeded beyond all hope. He has searched and explored all the libraries on the continent and in England, there is not a major manuscript which is not represented in his editions of the Sunday Gospels. This last work especially, by the great importance of the reproductions, their variety, their authenticity, will remain as one of the most beautiful Livres that one has ever tried to carry out ". Larousse XIX °, volume 5, page 684. The first two volumes are mounted on tabs. The three volumes are bound in … [Click Below for Full Description]

1801. Very good. Just one of inkFrog's Creations :: Description The History, Civil and Commercial, of the British Colonies in the West Indies. By Bryan Edwards. In Three Volumes. Third Edition, With Considerable Additions. Illustrated with Plates. Printed for John Stockdale 1801. Books are hardcover and rebound. Books measure 6 1/4" x 9 1/2". Pages are rough cut. Books and contents are in very good condition.From https://www.bl.uk/collection-items/the-history-civil--and-commercial-of-the-west-indies: Despite the title of the book, it also covered topics that go beyond what we normally think of as "history". Descriptions of the different groups of people to be found in Caribbean societies were included. There were around 250,000 enslaved people of African descent at the time. (By African descent we mean both people who had been born in Africa and taken on slave ships, and the children of such people who had been born in the Caribbean.) Living in slavery, they had harsh and brutal lives, sometimes rebelling or running away when they had the chance. In contrast, the power in the Caribbean colonies lay firmly with the white population (around 20,000 in number), especially the planters, some of whom had been born in Europe and moved to the region-like Edwards himself-while others had been born locally. They had the money, the power and the freedom to act as they pleased.Between these two groups were non-white people who were free, including so-called "free people of color", who had mixed African and European ancestry. Edwards describes the complicated categories that were used t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Erster Theil welcher die Feldzüge von 1756 und 1757 enthält; Zweiter Theil welcher den Feldzug von 1758 enthält; Dritter Theil welcher den Feldzug von 1759 enthält; Vierter Theil, welcher den Feldzug von 1760 enthält; Fünfter Theil, welcher den Feldzug von 1761 enthält; Sschster und letzter Theil, welcher den Feldzug von 1762 enthält. - Der englische General Henry Lloyd hatte den Beginn des Siebenjährigen Krieges auf österreichischer Seite mitgemacht - 1760 trat er in preußischen Dienst. "Ein reich veranlagter Geist, klug und mutig, und als Militärschriftsteller machte er Epoche". Lloyd hat die geometrische Betrachtungsweise der Kriegsstrategie, wie sie sich seit den Kriegen Ludwigs XIV. herausgebildet hatte, zur Vollendung gebracht. Clausewitz hat ihn später als "Muster jener falschen Theorie, die sich bis in unsere Zeiten hineinzieht" scharf angegriffen (vgl. Jähns 1872).- Der Übersetzer Georg Friedrich von Tempelhof verwendete hier erstmalig den Begriff "Siebenjähriger Krieg". Die erste deutsche Ausgabe (übersetzt von J.A. Remer) war 1777 erschienen

BULLOCK, Mrs?)
Dublin: Printed by Thomas Burnside, for P. Wogan, H. Colbert,. 1801. Half titles; C3 (p31-p32) vol. II is torn in half across the middle of the page; while both halves are still present, in a curious piece of mis-binding, the upper portion of the leaf is in the correct position, while the lower half is to be found between C4 & C5, p149 vol. I, though legible, has some printing flaws. Contemp. full mottled calf, maroon & black leather labels; boards sl. bowing, v. sl. rubbing. The London edition, also 1801, was in three volumes; this Dublin edition is in BL only on Copac. Dorothea was published in an anthology of anti-Jacobin novels in 2005, where, unlike the BL's anonymous copy, it was attributed to 'Mrs Bullock'. The work was intended to counter the prevailing trends in late 18th and early 19th century literature for radicalism and social upheaval. It directly challenges the writing of William Godwin, quoting him in several places in an attempt to undermine his political philosophy. The main protagonist, Dorothea, is portrayed as naive, misguided and self-destructive for her devotion to modern thinking. The novel is an anti-radical polemic: "If you are a modern philosopher, the best which I can offer is, for your speedy deliverance from the energetic sublimity of your incomprehensible dogmas; but if you are. a pupil of the old school, be contented, I beseech you, to thank Heaven for your ignorance, and. shut your eyes against the delusions of that ignus fatuus the NEW LIGHT!"

1801. [NAPOLÉON]. SEWRIN, Charles-Augustin de Bassompierre, dit. Hilaire et Berthille, ou la Marchine infernale de la rue Nicaise, Paris : Dentu, an IX (1801). In-12, frontispice sous serpente, (4)-263 pages. Maroquin rouge de la fin du XIXe siècle, dos à nerfs orné de symboles napoléoniens (initiale N entourée d'une couronne de lauriers, aigle et abeille impériaux), plats ornés d'un décor de filets dorés et des mêmes symboles aux angles, dentelle florale avec oiseaux autour des contreplats, tête dorée, exemplaire non rogné (reliure signée Hatchard 187 Piccadilly). Petite mouillure marginale sur une vingtaine de feuillets, quelques petites rousseurs éparses. Edition originale, rare sur le marché. L'intrigue de ce roman est fondée sur l'attentat de la rue Nicaise contre Napoléon, le 24 décembre 1800, également connu sous le nom de "conspiration de la machine infernale". Le Premier Consul n'est pas blessé mais l'explosion entraîne des destructions importantes et de nombreuses victimes. Aux yeux des contemporains, l'attentat, quoique royaliste, apparaît comme la résurgence de la Terreur et le dernier avatar des troubles révolutionnaires. Le parallèle avec la Terreur est ici particulièrement présent : "[Ce roman] met en scène un homme qui était parvenu à échapper à la sentence du tribunal révolutionnaire devant lequel il était traduit et qui se voit rattrapé en quelque sorte par « la hache révolutionnaire », puisque sa fille et son futur gendre trouvent la mort dans l'attentat.

ADAM, Jean Victor Vincent.
Instalment of 6 beautiful hand-coloured lithographed illustrations of mounted horses, with their riders in traditional costumes, participating in tournaments in different settings. It's a separate instalment from an extremely rare print series by the French draughtsman Jean Victor Vincent Adam (1801-1866), known for his illustrations of horses. No other copies of other instalments or the whole series of 24 plates could be located, only a few mentions in the literature. With the embossed publisher's stamp on each of the plates, a tear in the margins of a plate, and the wrappers with tears in the fold.

[MICHAUD = CREVECOEUR, Michel Guillaume Jean de (John Hector ST. JOHN)]
IV, 502 pp.Only copy located of the first and only edition of the Dutch translation of Voyage dans la haute Pennsylvanie et dans l'état de New York, par un membre adoptif de la nation Onéida (Paris 1801). The voyage, or rather history and description of North America by Crèvecoeur suggests that the work was a translation from the papers of an adopted member of the Onéida tribe. The author, a French agronome and economist, spent about a quarter of a century in the United States and had closely followed and admired Washington's career.The title erroneously attributes the journey to François-André Michaux, while in fact it was Michel Guillaume Jean Crèvecoeur (John Hector St. John). This Dutch edition was published with the same map and 2 of the 3 plates of the first and only French edition. The title states that there should be thee volumes. However, only the first volume was ever published, the intended other two volumes were never realized. The map shows the north eastern part of the United States: from the Great Lakes to Maine to Pennsylvania. With New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, the Atlantic Ocean and the border of Canada at Montreal etc.Slightly foxed, folding map a bit more on the folds.l Not in NCC, Worldcat; Saakes IV, p. 196; cf.

[ARABIAN NIGHTS]. LANE, Edward William (translator).
XXXII, 618; XII, 643, [1]; XII, 763, [1] pp.Attractively bound set of the first accurate English translation of the of Alf laylah wa laylah, commonly known in English as the Arabian nights. The British orientalist Edward William Lane (1801-1876) lived in Egypt for several years and had integrated well with the Arabic population.The first printing of vol. 1 (1839) appears to have sold out by the time vol. 3 was printed, so the complete sets were published with a new printing of vol. 1, matching the first printing line for line. Since the publisher switched printers (from Whitehead to Clowes) between volumes 2 and 3, the new printing of vol. 1 omits the reference to Whitehead as printer and apparently also the translator's advertisement.With the bookplate of the American collector Henry T. Cox, whose library was auctioned in 1899, and the library stamps of the American businessman Henry T. Sloane (1845-1937). A very good set.l Jack Ross, Scheherazade's web: the 1001 nights & comparative literature (http://dinarzade.blogspot.com), bibliography 24 (with vol. 1 in 1839 printing).

Very Good. Item #6435 Walpole: Printed by David Carlisle for Thomas & Thomas, 1801. First Edition. 12mo; 360 pp. Contemporary calf with black title card in gilt lettering to spine. Speckled page edges.Boards rubbed and worn along edges, corners, and surface, with a few divots to leather and general soiling and smudging. Tugged and frayed at head of spine. Covers open easily but binding is secure. Alphabet, ownership name, and penmanship-practice-repeated "Samuel" in a student's enthusiastic hand on endpapers, though interior is unmarked. Some distress along edges of front free endpaper, with a short, clean tear along gutter at bottom. Pages toned with some occasional foxing. Binding is sound.Morton notes "The first herbal both produced and printed in the United States, as opposed to those which were reprints of European works. Includes information on native American remedies." Born in Massachusetts, Stearns was a doctor, astronomer, and publisher, who along with this first herbal also published America's first Nautical Almanack in 1782. A British loyalist, Stearns was regularly harassed and a few times jailed for possibly-concocted crimes, fleeing for a time to Britain then travelling through Europe before returning to the States in 1791. His Herbal was meant to be part of a larger North American Medical Dispensatory on which he worked for 28 years but died before completing.[Garrison-Morton 1832.2, Howes S-911, Meisel III-362.

GREGOIRE (Abbé Henri)
Paris, Imprimerie-Librairie chrétienne, s.d. [1801]. In-8, broché, couverture de papier bulle ancien, 40 p. Rarissime édition originale et première version de ce texte qui sera profondément revu par l'abbé Grégoire en sa seconde édition (1806). A l'exemple de l'Angleterre, la France devrait conserver les ruines des institutions monastiques. Grégoire illustre son propos en choisissant le cas de Port-Royal des Champs, berceau du jansénisme, et évoque les grandes figures qui hantent ces ruines: Pascal, Arnaud, Nicole, La Bruyère, Racine, etc. Ce choix n'est pas un hasard pour Grégoire qui, toute sa vie durant, fut un janséniste convaincu. Cinq Lettres sur 'l’Augustinus' composées par Grégoire à la fin de 1805, récemment découvertes et publiées par Jean Dubray (2015), contiennent une véritable profession de foi janséniste qui éclaire les rapports anciens et étroits de l'auteur avec la théologie augustinienne. La vie, l'oeuvre et les engagements de l'abbé Grégoire ne prennent tout leur sens que dans le cadre de cet idéal. (Monglond, V, 491). Quelques rousseurs éparses. Bon exemplaire.

London: Printed by J. Wright for Vernor and Hood, 1801. First collected edition originally issued in monthly parts of these popular translations of nineteen contemporary German plays by Benjamin Thompson (1775/6 1816), who had learned German while working as an agent for his father in Hamburg, penning translations in his spare time. His edition came out during what Stockley terms the short but brilliant Glanzperiode of the German stage in England (1798 1801), when it dominated all dramatic interests (p. 181). It had run to a fourth edition by 1811. These six volumes contain ten plays of Kotzebue, besides Emilia Galotti, The Robbers, Don Carlos, Stella, and several plays of now forgotten authors Some had appeared separately between 1798 1800. The European Magazine says: The volumes will afford a complete satisfaction to all who are desirous of becoming acquainted with the beauties and defects of the German stage; the Dramas are selected with judgment and the talents of the translator appear in a most favourable light. Here one cannot quite agree Thompson takes great liberties with his text and is often careless and inaccurate. Still, his work is superior to that of most of the translators of the time; and his versions of Kotzebue s plays specially that of The Stranger are better than most contemporary translations. The selection of dramas is interesting, showing the rank given in England to the various German dramatists of the day (op. cit., pp. 184 5).

Samuel Stearns
Walpole: Thomas & Thomas, 1801. Very Good. Walpole: Printed by David Carlisle for Thomas & Thomas, 1801. First Edition. 12mo; 360 pp. Contemporary calf with black title card in gilt lettering to spine. Speckled page edges.Boards rubbed and worn along edges, corners, and surface, with a few divots to leather and general soiling and smudging. Tugged and frayed at head of spine. Covers open easily but binding is secure. Alphabet, ownership name, and penmanship-practice-repeated "Samuel" in a student's enthusiastic hand on endpapers, though interior is unmarked. Some distress along edges of front free endpaper, with a short, clean tear along gutter at bottom. Pages toned with some occasional foxing. Binding is sound. Morton notes "The first herbal both produced and printed in the United States, as opposed to those which were reprints of European works. Includes information on native American remedies." Born in Massachusetts, Stearns was a doctor, astronomer, and publisher, who along with this first herbal also published America's first Nautical Almanack in 1782. A British loyalist, Stearns was regularly harassed and a few times jailed for possibly-concocted crimes, fleeing for a time to Britain then travelling through Europe before returning to the States in 1791. His Herbal was meant to be part of a larger North American Medical Dispensatory on which he worked for 28 years but died before completing. [Garrison-Morton 1832.2, Howes S-911, Meisel III-362. Sabin 90959].
