        Handbuch der Chemischen Analyse von Mineralkörpern.

      Freiberg, Craz, 1801 - VIII, 362 S., 1 Bl. (Berichtigungen). 1 gefalt. Kupfertafel. Erste Ausgabe, selten. - NDB XIII, 456: "Wilhelm August Lampadius (1772 - 1842) . begründete die moderne mitteleuropäische Metallurgie und Hüttenkunde, indem er seit 1795 das Lehrfach Chemie von veralteten wissenschaftlichen Vorstellungen befreite, es in analytische, elektrochemische und technische Vorlesungen aufgliederte und, nach Erbauung des ersten chemisch-metallurgischen Laboratoriums der Bergakademie (1796/97), analytisch-chemische Kurse einführte." - "Rare. Gives details of the equipment necessary for the analysis of minerals, as well as instructions for their use. It also describes various analytical methods, giving a list of reagents. The analysis of individual minerals is then described. Lampadius` methods are generally as good as Klaproth`s, and there are portions of the book that foreshadow textbooks of a later period. For example, it contains a detailed list of equipment and apparatus required for analysis, as well as instructions for their use. In the introduction a long passage describes the preparation of the necessary reagents, and methods for testing their purity. Szabadváry (1966) says these `descriptions are the earliest record of standard methods used for testing the purity of analytical grade reagents and in many cases are very similar to present day methods`" (Minrec). - Unbeschnitten.

        Tales of Wonder.

      London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. for the Author; and sold by J. Bell,, 1801. 2 volumes, tall octavo (250 x 153 mm). Contemporary streaked calf, spines gilt-tooled in compartments, two black morocco title labels to each, elaborately gilt-tooled and rolled borders to sides, gilt "D" crest with winged crown to centre of boards, gilt-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers and edges. Some tenderness to joints with a crack to front joint of vol. 2, a few other marks and scuffs, but internally fresh and generally an excellent copy. First edition, this copy in a handsome contemporary binding and somewhat later gifted by Lord Chandos Leigh (1791-1850, poet and school-friend of Lord Byron) to his nephew Frederick Leigh Colvile (1819-1886, himself an author, antiquary, and Warwickshire vicar). The book has the recipient's bookplate and is inscribed, "from my uncle Chandos Leigh". This is a pleasing early association for this collection of poems by Gothic-horror celebrity Matthew "Monk" Lewis. "Because of the ample large paper format and high publication price [one guinea], this two-volume octavo edition was soon derided as 'Tales of Plunder'" (Todd & Bowden), although ODNB (see below) attributes this appellation to the fact that two-thirds of the ballad material included had been published in previous compilations. "In 1798 Lewis met William Erskine, friend of Walter Scott, who showed him some of the latter's translations and imitations of German ballads. Lewis's admiration for his writing represented an important opportunity for the as yet unknown Scott, whose subsequent poetry was greatly influenced by Lewis. In 1798 Lewis announced to Scott his plan to publish a collection of 'Tales of Terror', adding that 'a Ghost or a Witch is a sine-qua-non ingredient in all the dishes, of which I mean to compose my hobgoblin repast' (Peck, 118). This reveals Lewis's interest in fashionable Gothic horror rather than any scholarly concern for folkloric authenticity, a predilection which is evident in his subsequent publication. The collection appeared in late 1800 or early 1801 as Tales of Wonder, and, in addition to traditional material and nine original poems by Lewis (the best being 'Alonzo the Brave and Fair Imogine'), included five ballads by Scott, eight by Robert Southey, and one by John Leyden. Lewis's original poems display a remarkable variety of metrical feet, stanzaic form, and rhyme scheme, confirming Walter Scott's comment that Lewis 'had the finest ear for the rhythm of verse I have ever heard—finer than Byron's' (ibid., 123). Eight were Lewis's translations from the German, including five from Herder's Volkslieder, the main faults of which are overadornment and sentimentality. Of the sixty pieces included, about two-thirds had been published before in collections by Thomas Percy, David Herd, and other eighteenth-century compilers, a fact which contributed to the book's poor public reception and its popular appellation 'Tales of Plunder'. Of the many parodies elicited by Tales of Wonder, the most celebrated is the anonymous Tales of Terror (1801) on account of the fact that it was sold by Lewis's own publisher Bell, who issued it and the Tales of Wonder in uniform size and advertised the two works as companion volumes. The attribution of Tales of Terror to Lewis by his biographer of 1839 deepened the bibliographical confusion, and the work was thereafter taken to be Lewis's own, an attribution symptomatic of the fine line separating horror and parody in Lewis's opus" (ODNB).

        Addresses to the Deity. The third edition.

      London:: Printed for T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies, by G.R. Clarke, 1801., 1801. Small 8vo. xx, [ii], 232 pp. Original full dark navy blue straight-grained morocco, gilt Greek-key tooling surround, five raised bands, elaborate gilt compartments, all edges gilt. Very good +. With a fine fore-edge painting under the gilt showing "Christchurch in Hampshire (here James Fordyce lived)." With an early typed note relating to the painting. The artist possibly copied the engraving "Christchurch, Hampshire" from the print by E. Finden after a picture by W. Westall, published in Great Britain Illustrated, 1830. This view shows the single row boat in the foreground similar to the image with this fore-edge painting. Artist unknown; painted ca. 1900-1955. This scene is delicately and skillfully painted. "Fordyce's delivery and gestures were studied, and he drew crowds to Monkwell Street. His topics were didactic, but he also satisfied cultured tastes, and dealt with the ethics of actual life. David Garrick was impressed; Fordyce associated with Samuel Johnson, and introduced him to Blair. He gave sympathetic account in Addresses to the Deity, 1785, of Johnson's religious character, speaking as an evangelical moderate." [DNB].

        Tableau historique et statistique de l'empire de Russie à fin du dix-huitième siècle. Edition française.

      Basle, J. Decker, and Paris, C. Pougens, 1801. Two volumes in two. 8vo (19.6 x12.3 cm). 1,004 pp. [xxii, 407, 80; 423, 72], two large, partly coloured folded maps (the largest with printed dimensions 67 x 36.5 cm), three folded tables. Uniform contemporary tree-calf. Spines rich gilt with gilt title on blue morocco label. Marbled endpapers. Edges yellow, speckled with red. = Contains much information on the economy and demography of late 18th century Russia. One map shows Russia west of the Ural, the other the whole country, including Siberia, in 1800. This map is reminiscent of that in the work of Pallas. Copies complete with both maps are very rare. A 'mappe monde', recorded by a French antiquarian most probably does not belong to this work on Russia - there are no text references to such a map. A German edition was published simultanously but is very rare too, being without recent auction records. Provenance: his royal highness Herzog Carl Theodor von Bayern, who, apparently, prefered this edition over the German one. Slight rubbing to the boards, short tear in the inner margin of the folded maps, otherwise a very good clean set. Rare. Not in Brunet.

Legatura in piena pergamena moderna. Faldone riguardante il processo per l'ammissione di Fabio de Dura, duca di Collepietro, nel Sacro Militare Ordine Costantiniano di San Giorgio. Questo Ordine Equestre fu costituito, secondo la tradizione, dall'Imperatore Costantino (Naissus, 27 febbraio 274 - Nicomedia, 22 maggio 337) dopo l'apparizione della Santa Croce a Saxa Rubra. Sarebbe pertanto il più antico ordine cavalleresco della Cristianità. Oggi l'Ordine è impegnato nella propagazione della Fede e nella glorificazione della Croce, fornendo inoltre il proprio contributo ad attività di assistenza sociale ed ospedaliera. L'attuale Gran Maestro è S.A.R. il Principe Carlo di Borbone delle Due Sicilie, Duca di Castro e Capo della Real Casa..

        MISS SCOTT EVANS...BEGS LEAVE RESPECTFULLY TO INFORM HER FRIENDS AND THE PUBLIC, THAT HER BENEFIT, AT THE NEW ROYAL CIRCUS, ST. GEORGE'S FIELDS, IS FIXED FOR SATURDAY, THE 3D OF OCTOBER, 1801, WHEN THE NEW GRAND SPECTACLE OF KING CÆSAR, OR, THE NEGRO SLAVES...WILL BE PERFORMED

      [London]: Printed at the Philanthropic Reform...by J. Richardson, 1801. Broadside, 13 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches. Contemporary ink correction to one word, old folds, light edge wear, minor creasing and wrinkling. Very good. Untrimmed. This playbill records a performance of KING CÆSAR, OR, THE NEGRO SLAVES... by John Cartwright Cross at the New Royal Circus, London, Oct. 3, 1801. The production was inspired by the activities of the rebel slave leader and Voodoo priest Francois Mackandal in the French colony of Saint-Domingue in the Caribbean. A one-armed escaped slave, Mackandal organized Maroon bands in the 1750s, staging raids on the French until his eventual capture in 1758. First performed on Wednesday, Sep. 16, 1801, the "grand spectacle" was produced at the time of great public interest in the ongoing slave revolt on Saint- Domingue (1791-1804) that led to the founding of Haiti.

        Kodo zuroku [trans.: Illustrated Book on the Smelting of Copper]

      27 full-page woodcuts (14 of which are color printed) by Tokei Niwa. 14, 6 folding leaves. Large 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block-printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. Osaka: Sumitomo clan, ca. 1801-11. First edition of an important and fascinating illustrated work on the history and technology of smelting copper in Japan, which by the late 1670s had become the largest copper producing and exporting country in the world (replacing Sweden and replaced by China in the 1740s), with much of the copper being exported by the Dutch East India Company to European and Asian markets. Copper mining, refining, and exporting were the early primary businesses of what became the Sumitomo Corporation. Masuda (d. 1821), who describes himself as a "slave" (employee) of the Sumitomo clan of Osaka, provides a history of the introduction of liquation (or Seiger process; it had been invented in the early 15th century in Nuremberg) into Japan in 1591 by a Portuguese. The information was transmitted to Riemon Soga (1572-1636), a metallurgist and brother-in-law of Masatomo Sumitomo, the founder of the famous company. Japanese metallurgists modified the Seiger process and called it nanban-buki. The process spread throughout Japan and was first used to extract silver. By the middle of the 17th century, many silver mines had been exhausted and copper mines began production. Soon, there were more than 200,000 miners and 100,000 charcoal producers at 50 copper mines throughout Japan. The fine woodcuts are by Tokei Niwa (1760-1822), a prominent artist of the period, and 14 are color printed. They depict the stages of copper production from mining and hand sorting to smelting to casting into bars. Three of the plates show the steps of smelting the ore to produce black copper; the removal of silver is depicted on three further plates. The final 13 woodcuts, in black-&-white, show the tools used in the processes. All the plates have captions in Japanese describing the activities. One of the colored plates depicts men raising water from the mine to a height of 220 meters. The final six leaves of text, written in Chinese with Japanese reading marks, gives more details about nanban-buki along with an account of the Sumitomo clan and its important involvement in the copper industry. Fine copy and quite rare. ❧ Smith, Cyril Stanley & Shirakawa, Zenryu, Kodo Zuroku: Illustrated Book on the Smelting of Copper (1983).

The self-styled "third American edition," although there were actually five American editions published before this one. NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime. It has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." It was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. This is only the second American edition of Jefferson's NOTES. with a map. This is the same map which accompanies the 1794 New York edition, the first American edition of the NOTES. to have a map. This edition should also includes a view of the Natural Bridge in Virginia (which is not present here). This edition is also notable for being the first to contain the appendix on the murder of the Indian chief Logan and his family during the American Revolution which starts at page 297. Jefferson here adds numerous documents and corrects errors he made about the matter in earlier editions. Howes J78; Sabin 35906; Shaw & Shoemaker 722; Sowerby, Jefferson's Library 4167

        View of the source of the glaciers and the lake of Kandersteig - Vue de la glaciers et de Lac du Kandersteig

      London, G. & W. Nicoll, 1801. Very large broadsheet (80.2 x 56.3 cm). Aquatint, finished by hand.= A fine, large plate of the Kandersteig (= Kandersteg) lake (= Oeschinensee) and glaciers, in the Swiss canton of Bern..Drawn "on the spot" by Claude Louis Châtelet (1753-1795), engraved by the French engraver Jaques Mérigot (later James Merigot; d. 1816) and painted by P. Vanlerberghe from Flanders, who was also known as an etcher. Mérigot and Vanlerberghe moved to London sometime in the 1790's. This plate was made several years after the death of Châtelet. "[Châtelet] embraced with ardour the cause of the Revolution, allied himself with Robespierre and the leaders of the Jacobins, and became a member of the Revolutionary Tribunal. He was arrested some months after the 9th Thermidor, tried, condemned, and executed in Paris, May 7, 1795" (Wikipedia). It is tempting to assume that Mérigot, and perhaps Van Lerberghe too, had close ties with Châtelet and therefore fled to London. As far as we know this plate is a piece of art on its own, not meant to be part of book. It is one of the earliest views of the glacier and it may be of importance in establishing the retreat of the glacier in historic times. A very wide-margined copy. Small chips to the lower corners, slight age-toning, but generally in very good condition, with the imprint and colouring strong and bright.

      De l'Impreimerie de Didot Jeune (1801-1082) - First Edition of this Second French Translation by P.F. Henry. 5 Volumes (missing sixth), 8vo. viii, 341pp; 384pp; 381pp; 368pp; 438pp; each with half-titles; no plates, missing volume 6 the atlas. Books: Very Good; great for its age and the fact the binding appears to be the original blue patterned paper over publisher's boards; rubbed and discoloured, with handwritten paper spine labels 'Voyage de Vancouver tom' and volume number; the page edges are rough untrimmed; waste paper stubs used in each volume appearing at the title-pages, with print (in French) on the stubs of volumes 2, 3, 4, and there are other printed sheets beneath some pastedowns, most visibly volume 4 rear blank pastedown which is most transparent showing a printed page under it. Volume 4 spine is also lifting and shows an amount of manuscript writing on parchment within the spine structure, as the spines of each volume appear to include parchment over the quires, possibly recycled unrelated letters or documents that the binder had at hand - the printed and manuscript material within the binding structures have not been yet investigated but could yield some fruit for an antiquary. Pages: Very Good; text is clean overall aside from some fingerprints, the page edges are rough, uncut. 5 volumes, missing atlas, Paris: Didot Jeune, An X [1801-2]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: Royal Society of London, 1801. First Edition. Quarter Leather. Very Good. In this article, Young describes his improvement on the optometer; he was also the first to make exact measurements of the visual field as well as the first series of measurements on accommodative power and refraction. Accompanied by 6 folding plates illustrating the paper and engraved by Basire. This paper has been called "the most important treatise on physiological optics published up to that time" (Hirschberg/Blodi V, 22). Herschel investigates infrared radiation further and shows that heat, whether solar or terrestrial, obeys laws of reflection and refraction analogous to that of light. 2 plates illustrate Herschel's first article, 1 plate for the second. This complete volume of papers by numerous authors on a variety of subjects including medicine, natural history, physics, mathematics and archaeology, illustrated with numerous plates. iii-vi, [1], [1]-240, [1], [1]-26, [iii]-iv, [1], [241]-454, [6] pp. 4to. Library binding, tan leather spine with gold embossed titling, scuffing and tears where call numbers have been removed.
