      - Altkolorierter Kupferstich b. Società Calcografia in Venedig, dat. 1801, 50,5 x 67 Bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar! - Diese sehr seltene Karte gehört zu einem nie beendetem Projekt der "Società Calcografia", ein Zusammenschluß der beiden venezianischen Verleger des 18. Jahrhundert Antonio Zatta und Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. - Weitere Karten die uns aus dem Projekt bekannt sind tragen auch den Namen "à Venise Chez la Societe Chalcographique". - Das Projekt ist nie beendet worden und die Karten in keiner uns bekannten Bibliographie aufgeführt. - Oben rechts in Manuskript "N. XII." - Die Karte zeigt Nordwestfrankreich mit den genannten Départements in dem Gebiet der Südküste Englands mit den Kanalinseln, Normandie und Bretagne. - Am linken Rand altkolorierte Titelkartusche; unten links Erklärungen und Meilenzeiger. - Extrem seltener Einblattdruck! This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. The term Società Calcografica has been deduced from the map of the world, which is part of the collection and bears in the lower cartouche the French writing "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique". As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has ever been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini’s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 "Atlas Universelle" and from the plates of Antonio Zatta’s "Nuovo Atlante" published in 1796. Santini’s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died in 1811.

        Histoire Naturelle des Poissons, avec les figures dessinées d'après nature. Ouvrage classé par ordres, genres et espèces, d'après le systême de Linné; avec les caractères génériques; par René Richard Castel.

      - Paris, Chez Deterville, An IX (1801). 10 volumes. 12mo (133 x 80mm). With 160 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt ornamented spines with 2 gilt-lettered green labels, sides with gilt borderlines, gilt edges. The small 12mo edition of Bloch's famous folio work on fishes, the most sumptuous and beautifully produced work on the subject. The present edition forms vols. 32-41 of the 'Suite à Buffon'. The plates are after Jacques De Sève, one of the most famous natural history artists of the period. "Toutes les planches ont été dessinées de nouveau par J.E. De Sève, dont le talent est connu, et gravées avec un soin particulier sous sa direction" (From the Introduction). Marcus Elieser Bloch (1723-1799) was born in Ansbach and practiced as a physician in Berlin. He devoted himself to natural history, and wrote several works of which this is his most famous. He is considered the most important ichthyologist of the 18th century and his collection of some 1500 fishes from all over the world was the largest collection of fishes of his time.

      London, 1801. Thick folio. Contemporary tree calf, gilt, spine gilt, blue morocco label. Marbled endpapers. Fine. A very fine copy of the fifth edition of this important atlas of the world, including a newly revised chart of world and nine other maps that were not available in the early editions of this spectacular work. Eight editions of this work were issued on an almost annual basis from 1796 through until 1807. The publishers constantly changed and improved the atlas in an effort to outdo not only their competitors, but also to improve on the previous edition. Maps were added (the first edition included only sixty-six map sheets), maps were replaced (the present work includes two maps dated 1800, including "A New Chart of the World" dated Nov. 25, 1800), and maps were updated (eight maps are dated 1799). The scale of some of the maps is truly spectacular: this atlas contains fifteen maps that if joined would form large-scale wall maps. "Asia and its Islands" (on three folding sheets, ranging from the Arctic regions in the north, down through Russia, Indonesia and Australia) would measure approximately 56 x 46 inches if assembled. The remaining maps on two folding sheets would all be approximately 40 x 46 inches if joined, including three maps of American interest: "A new map of the whole continent of America"; "A new map of North America, with the West India Islands"; and "A map of South America." The remaining areas that are covered by large-scale maps are "A general map of the World"; England and Wales; Scotland; Ireland; the Netherlands; Germany; Hindoostan; Bengal, Bahar, etc.; Delhi, Agrah, Oude, and Allahabad. This atlas was originally created by Thomas Kitchin. Sayer and Bennett had published the work in 1773, and Laurie and Whittle took over the Sayer business in 1794. They subsequently enlarged the work, adding maps and changing the name from the GENERAL ATLAS to A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS. The maps are based on the work of a variety of mapmakers and surveyors: Thomas Kitchin, Thomas Jefferys, John Rocque, Robert Campbell, John Armstrong, John Roberts, L.S. d'Arcy Delarochette, James Rennell, Andrew Dury, Thomas Pownall, and Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville. Also included is the information gathered as a result of the important Pacific voyages of Captain James Cook, George Vancouver, and Jean François Galaup de La Pérouse.

Avec Berthollet, il est l'un des premiers à se convertir aux vues d'Antoine Lavoisier dont il aide à publier les écrits, notamment la Méthode rationnelle de nomenclature. En revanche, lorsqu'en 1793, il remplace Marat, qui a été assassiné le 13 juillet, à la Convention nationale, et est élu au Comité d'instruction publique, il soutient le plan d'éducation de Le Peletier et soutient l'épuration des académies de médecine et des sciences, on ira jusqu'à l'accuser d'avoir provoqué la mort de Lavoisier ou, pour le moins, de n'avoir rien fait pour le sauver. Bien que son nom apparaisse dans de nombreux écrits de chimie, de physiologie et de pathologie, seul ou comme coauteur, il est plutôt un enseignant et un administrateur qu'un véritable chercheur a laissé un Essai sur le pùogistique et les acides (1788) ; Philosophie chimique (1792) ; Tableaux synoptiques de chimie (1805).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. („Humboldt").

      Cartagena (Kolumbien), 30. III. 1801. - 2 SS. Gr.-4to. Unbekannter Brief von seiner Reise in Amerika an den namentlich nicht genannten Kaufmann Luis de la Cuesta in Havanna, dem er Nachricht von seiner Ankunft in Cartagena gibt. Am 5. Juni 1799 war Humboldt mit dem Botaniker Aimé Bonpland zu seiner Forschungsreise nach Lateinamerika aufgebrochen. Nach seiner Ankunft in Venezuela (16. Juli 1799) hatte er die Umgebung von Cumaná erforscht und eine Reise auf dem Orinoco (März bis Juni 1800) unternommen. Von Venezuela hatte sich Humboldt nach Kuba begeben, wo er sich vom 19. Dezember 1800 bis 5. März 1801 aufgehalten hatte und Gast der Familie de la Cuesta gewesen war. Von Kuba war er nach Kolumbien gereist und am 30. März 1801 in Cartagena an Land gegangen. „Le Courier, mon respectable ami, part le même jour de notre arrivée en ce port, de sorte que j’aime de profiter de cette occasion pour Vous donner un signe de vie et pour Vous réitérer les sentimens de reconnaissance et d’attachement que Vos bontés m’ont inspiré. Nous sommes sain et sauf, mais la Navigation était détestable. 21 jours de traversée. D’abord nous perdîmes quelques jours en entrant à la Trinité (où j’ai été très très bien accueilli) puis des calmes sans fin et puis une recalada à sotto viento dans le Golfe du Darien parce que le Pilote ne compta pas sur les Courant et se mefiant de mon Chronometre qui, tel que la suite a prouvé, ne manquant pas d’une mille. Sur la Cote nous eumes des brizes très fortes et une mer terrible. Nous étions toujours sou l’eau. Nous entrames dans le Rio Sinu pays sauvage qui porte encore cette empreinte d’une terre vierge et intacte. Que cette Amérique meridionale est belle. Je croyais revoir les forets du Rio Negro et du Casiquiare. Le Domingo de Ramos, justement le même jour que je fis naufrage dans l’Orinoco, nous fumes en grand danger devant le port de Carthagene. Un coup de vent nous submergea et el timon no governava mas. Je crois presque que je ne pourrai pas resister au plaisir d’aller par S[anta] Fe [de Bogota] et Popayan. On dit que les occasions de Panama sont très rares. Oserais-je Vous prier de vouloir bien faire passer l’incluse à mon frere par la voye de Hambourg ou du Nord Amerique [.]. Bonpland Vous salue de tout son coeur. Nos respects à Mad. Votre digne épouse, le bon Mr. Ascarate, Mr. de Santa-Maria, le Cte Orelly [.]". - Eine Woche später setzten Humboldt und Bonpland die Reise fort; die weiteren Reisestationen waren Bogota (Juli – September 1801), Quito (Januar – Juni 1802), Lima (Oktober – Dezember 1802), Guayaquil (Januar – Februar 1803), Mexiko-Stadt (April 1803 – Januar 1804), Havanna (März – April 1804) und Philadelphia (Mai – Juni 1804). Am 3. August 1804 betraten er und Bonpland nach fünf Jahren in Bordeaux wieder europäischen Boden. - Briefe von Humboldts Amerika-Reise sind von größter Seltenheit. - Etwas gebräunt und fleckig, kleine Randschäden.

        Gesammelte Nachrichten über die Belagerung von Gibraltar von 1779 bis 1783. (Titelblatt) - Deutsche Handschrift

      Einbeck, Dezember 1801.. 199 beidseitig in schwarzer Tinte beschriebene Blätter, auf gutem Schreibpapier. Pappband d. Zt. mit Grünschnitt. 21 x 17 cm. Gegenwärtige Nachschriften über die Belagerung von Gibraltar sind als eine gekürzte, hie und da veränderte Abschrift von den Briefen anzusehen, welche der Amtmann Friedrichs, der als Auditeur bei dem Sydowschen Regimente ein Augenzeuge von dieser Begebenheit war, in einigen Jahrgängen des hannöverschen Magazins herausgegeben hat. Man hat sich bemüht, dieselbe durch vorgefundene schriftliche Nachrichten, durch die Drinkwaterschen Auszüge (siehe das militärische Journal 4. Und 5. Stück von 1789 und 1790) und durch mehrere Auszüge aus andern Büchern zu ergänzen" (Vorrede). - Die große Belagerung von Gibraltar von 1779 bis 1783 war der letzte vergebliche Versuch, die Stadt und Festung Gibraltar den Briten gewaltsam zu entreißen. Der Angriff Spaniens auf den Felsen war von der Hoffnung getragen, das Großbritannien durch den amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitskrieg dort zu viele Truppen gebunden habe und es damit eine leicht Beute werden würde; der britische Kommandeur George Eliott hatte allerdings vorausblickend die Anzahl der Geschütze deutlich erhöht und u. a. Zivilisten zur Bedienung trainiert. Unter den auf Gibraltar stationierten Truppen war auch eine Einheit aus dem Kurfürstentum Hannover unter dem Kommando von August de la Motte. Von Angehörigen dieser Einheit stammen die dramatischen Text aus der Zeit der Belagerung und der Abwehr der spanischen Armee, die hier in Abschriften gedruckter und wohl auch ungedruckter Berichte vorliegen. - Beiliegt der bekannte illustr. Einblattdruck: "Prospect von Gibraltar mit seinen Werken, umliegenden Gegenden und ietzigen neuern Belagerungs-Anstalten, gez. vor Gibraltar im Jahre 1782, Daniel Berger, Berlin", mit der seltenen, unten angefügten typographischen Beschreibung der gest. Ansicht. Gesamtgr.: 42 x 32 cm. - Einband des Manuskripts bestoßen, Textbll. teils gebräunt. Der Einblattdruck mehrfach gefaltet, etwas fleckig und am Rand mit einigen kürzeren Einrissen.

        A Voyage round the World. Performed in the Years 1785, 1786, 1787, 1788, abridged from the Original French Journal ? which was lately published by M. Milet-Mureau ? To which are added, A Voyage from Manilla to California by Don Antonio Maurelle and an Abstract of the Voyage and Discoveries of the late Capt. G. Vancouver

      Boston: Printed for Joseph Bumpstead and sold by Him ... by Thomas and Andrews, E. and S. Larkin, Wm. P. and L. Blake, W. Pelham and C. Bingham, 1801. First American edition in condensed form of these three travels. La Pérouse was first published in English in 1785, Maurelle's circa 1780 and Vancouver's work in 1798. 12mo. Contemporary tree sheep, red morocco gilt label. Some rubbing of extremities, small chip at top of upper joint, lower edge of upper cover chipped for about 1 1/2 inches, some staining and marginal browning of text and endpapers (front free endpapers frayed). With the notation "Foster Social Library 90" on title and stamp of "Foster Manton Library" on a few leaves. Even as described, a good copy of these three travels. In a brown cloth open end case, leather tipped. First American edition in condensed form of these three travels. La Pérouse was first published in English in 1785, Maurelle's circa 1780 and Vancouver's work in 1798. 12mo. The text is based on the 1798 Edinburgh abridgement. The Hill copy includes a map but this was added later. Although merely a precis, this work also includes the first American appearance of Vancouver's voyage in print. The three accounts condensed in this text are all important accounts of the explorations of the Pacific Northwest. La Pérouse's being the earliest "visit of a foreigner to the missionary establishments in Upper California" (Howes), Maurelle's being the only contemporary account of the earliest Spanish expeditions to Alaska and Vancouver's explorations of the Pacific Northwest are among the most important and best known. With Jay's treaty of 1794 requiring the removal by the British from the Northwestern posts by 1796 the way was opened for western expansion. The editor notes in his introduction that the three authors of these works were first and foremost navigators and that it is this aspect of their works on which he concentrated. La Perouse voyage sought to build on Cook's efforts to discover a North-West Passage. Like Cook, he failed to return from the voyage, although in his case due to shipwreck off Vanikoro.

      London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. for the Author, 1801. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. An Omnibus of the Ominous, in Animated and Elegant Etruscan Calf. 260 x 159 mm (10 1/4 x 6 1/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary calf in the Etruscan style, possibly by Edwards of Halifax, each cover with a gilt floral spray border (unusual for this style of binding) surrounding a terra cotta and deep burnt orange frame with palmettes stamped in black and blind, this frame enclosing a panel diced and dotted in blind and with gilt cornerpieces and a central medallion featuring an incised monochrome mythological painting; double raised bands flanking gilt pentaglyph and metope roll, gilt-ruled spine compartments with open gilt dots and classical ornaments in blind, turn-ins with Greek key gilt roll, marbled edges (neatly rebacked, using most of the original spines, hinges reinforced with matching paper in first volume and matching cloth in second). Front pastedown with the bookplate of "E. L."; front free endpaper with the bookplate of Harry H. Blum. Lowndes II, 1353. Central images on the covers of volume II somewhat indistinct, a few leaves with faint spots, otherwise excellent, the carefully restored binding still retaining much of its original impressiveness, and the text very crisp and clean. This is an appealing Etruscan calf binding that may be (or is at least derived from) the work of Edwards of Halifax, offered here as the animated adornment for a fresh copy of the two-volume first appearance of "Monk" Lewis' famous and fascinating wicked stew of nightmares in verse. Matthew Gregory Lewis (1775-1818) was an infamous author of lurid Gothic literature, his most successful (and notorious) novel being "The Monk" (1796), an instant classic that bestowed his nickname. Our "hobgoblin repast" (as Lewis characterized "Tales of Wonder") is comprised of 60 chilling narratives including imitations, translations, and original pieces written by Goethe, Bürger, William Taylor of Norwich, John Leyden, Robert Southey, Henry Bunbury, a young Walter Scott (who contributed five pieces), and Lewis himself. As a suggestion of how horrific the works of our author were considered by his contemporaries, Lord Byron wrote of "Wonder-working Lewis, Monk or Bard, who fain wouldst make Parnassus a churchyard; Even Satan's self with thee might dread to dwell, And in thy skull discern a deeper hell." ("English Bards and Scotch Reviewers" 1809) Featuring a very elegant oval vignette on each cover, our impressively bound copy of this omnibus of the ominous was formerly in the possession of Harry H. Blum, Chicago department store owner and noted book enthusiast whose collection was sold at Sotheby's in 1982.

      Genève: J. J. Paschoud, 1801. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. 210 x 140 mm (8 1/4 x 5 1/2"). xiv, 327 pp. FIRST EDITION. Very pleasing recent retrospective smooth half calf over convincing marbled paper boards, raised bands, maroon morocco label, new well-matching endpapers. Folding frontispiece illustrating various types of trees and agricultural tools. The folding plate, first three leaves, and three other leaves with marginal patches up to two inches square (not affecting text), probably due to the removal of a library stamp. Aside from the patches mentioned above, a copy IN VERY FINE CONDITION inside and out, the new convincing binding unworn, and the text unusually clean, fresh, and bright. This is the youthful first work of notable historian and economist Jean Charles Léonard Simonde de Sismondi (1773-1842), the fruit of five years of experience as a farmer in Tuscany. The author offers a thorough and detailed discussion of the cultivation of olives and the production of olive oil; he discusses grapes and the production of Tuscan wines (including Montepulciano, Chianti, and Montecatini); he discourses on chestnut and fruit trees as well as on livestock; and, indicative of his future interests, he spends time examining the condition of the peasantry. Simonde de Sismondi was born in Geneva of a family of Italian origin, studied and travelled in England, then moved with his parents to Tuscany to escape the vicissitudes of the French Revolution. Initially influenced by the ideas of Adam Smith, he argued in his early works for a free market economy, but after the financial crises of 1818 and 1819, he radically revised his economic views, becoming an advocate for government regulation. He spent his later life largely in Geneva and France, and was widely admired and honored for his many works of economics and history, some of the best known being his "History of the Italian Republics" and "History of the French," which was written over a period of 20 years. The present volume is especially desirable because it is quite rare (nothing in ABPC since at least 1975), because it gives a useful comprehensive picture of the agricultural landscape of Tuscany at the end of the 18th century, and because it is an early work by such an eminent author.

        Differenz des Fichteschen und Schellingschen Systems der Philosophie (Difference Between Fichte?s and Schelling?s Systems of Philosophy).

      Seidler, Jena 1801 - First edition of Hegel's first book. Small octavo, period patterned paper boards, leather spine. Some wear to the extremities. Rare. In 1801 Hegel came to Jena with the encouragement of his old friend Schelling, who held the position of professor at the University there. Hegel secured a position at the University as a Privatdozent (unsalaried lecturer) after submitting a Habilitationsschrift (dissertation) on the orbits of the planets. Later in the year Hegel's first book, The Difference Between Fichte's and Schelling's Systems of Philosophy, was completed. He lectured on "Logic and Metaphysics" and gave joint lectures with Schelling on an "Introduction to the Idea and Limits of True Philosophy" and held a "Philosophical Disputorium". In 1802 Schelling and Hegel founded a journal, the Kritische Journal der Philosophie ("Critical Journal of Philosophy"), to which they each contributed pieces until the collaboration was ended when Schelling left for Würzburg in 1803. Hegel attempted to show how Fichte's Science of Knowledge was an advance from the position of Kant in the Critique of Pure Reason, and how Schelling had made a further advance from the position of Fichte. Hegel finds the idealism of Fichte too abstractly subjective and formalistic, and he tries to show how Schelling's philosophy of nature is the remedy for these weaknesses. But the most important philosophical content of the essay is probably to be found in his general introduction to these critical efforts where he deals with a number of problems about philosophical method in a way which is of general interest to philosophers, and not merely interesting to those who accept the Hegelian "dialectic method" which grew out of these first beginnings. Finally, the Difference essay is important in the development of "Nature-Philosophy" as a movement in the history of science. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Notes on the State of Virginia. With an Appendix.

      Newark: Printed by Pennington & Gould Third Edition 1801 - 8vo., 392 pages, fine engraved portrait frontispiece of Thomas Jefferson by John Scholes (and pictured in Cunningham's 'The Image of Thomas Jefferson in the Public Eye'), full-page "eye draught" of Madsion's Cave and folding chart listing Indian tribes, as well as Jefferson's draft of the Virginia Constitution, "Act of Religious Freedom," and Appendix to the Murder of Logan's Family, which only appears in editions beginning in 1800, bound in handsome contemporary full speckled calf with contrasting red morocco title label to spine. A generally excellent complete copy with the Appendix, internally clean in a handsome contemporary binding which is regarded as one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks. Ex Libris Jean-Guillaume, Baron Hyde de Neuville (24 January 1776 - 28 May 1857) the renowned French aristocrat, diplomat, and politician, with his engraved bookplate to upper pastedown. NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA is the only book-length work by Thomas 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. The work is both a compilation of data by Jefferson about the state's natural resources and economy, and his vigorous and often eloquent argument about the nature of the good society, which he believed was incarnated by Virginia. He expressed his beliefs in the separation of church and state, constitutional government, checks and balances, and individual liberty. He wrote extensively about slavery, the problems of miscegenation, and his belief that whites and blacks could not live together in a free society. A very scarce imprint, this printed version is identical to the 1801 New York/London editions. It is interesting to note that Jefferson's first term (1801-1805), Vice President, Aaron Burr, was from Newark which might account for an edition of this work being published there at that time."During the American Revolution, when Jefferson said 'my country' he meant Virginia" (Malone I:xiii). "Notes on the State of Virginia laid the foundations of Jefferson's high contemporary reputation as a universal scholar and of his present fame as a pioneer American scientist this extraordinarily informing and generally interesting book may still be consulted with profit about the geography and productions, the social and political life, of 18th-century Virginia. With ardent patriotism as well as zeal for truth Jefferson combated the theories of Buffon and Raynal in regard to the degeneracy of animal and intellectual life in America, and he manifested great optimism in regard to the future of the country, but he included strictures on slavery and the government of Virginia" (ANB). "Modeled on Enlightenment philosophy, Notes was regarded at the time as a celebration of America's attributes as much as Virginia's and as a defense of republicanism the Virginia of his imagination was indisputably his idealized America" (Burstein and Isenberg, 120-21).

        Well-Tempered Clavier

      1801. BACH, Johann Sebastian.Das wohltemperirte Clavier, oder Präludien und Fugen durch alle Töne.Zurich: Hans Georg Nageli, [1801-02].Two volumes.Rare first edition of both parts of Bach?'s masterpiece in musical instruction, fully engraved.Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, a collection of 48 preludes and fugues in all the major and minor keys, occupies a pivotal position in the keyboard repertoire. Students are still required to study this work, and seasoned performers are praised for their interpretations of it. The Well-Tempered Clavier "surpasses, in logic, in format and in musical quality, all earlier endeavors of the same kind by other masters… The work shows a perfectly balanced contrast between free and strict styles, each represented by several different types of prelude and fugue. Bach's writing… represents the culmination of a 20-year process of maturation and stands unparalleled in the history of music" (New Grove). Bach completed Part I in 1722 and Part II in 1744. After Bach's death in 1750, the work circulated in manuscript. "In 1782 Mozart arranged several of the fugues for chamber-music combinations… and in 1783 Beethoven played the Well-Tempered Clavier at the age of thirteen in a famous performance" (Fuld, 674).Fuld, 118.

Chalcographica, Typoplastica e Litteraria do Arco do Cego, 1801. - (5 ll.), ix, 189, (1) pp., 21 numbered engraved plates plus engraved frontis. 4°, mid-twentieth-century dark blue sheep, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, covers tooled in blind, blindstamped inner dentelles, marbled endleaves. A few of the plates somewhat browned. Uncut and partially unopened. In fine condition. "M.M. Leal" stamped in gilt on lower portion of rear inner dentelle. ---- First and only Portuguese translation; Bosse's treatise was originally published in Paris, 1645. (William Faithorne published what amounted to an English translation of it in 1662). This work on engraving was translated into Portuguese as part of the Arco do Cego's campaign to spread information about new techniques in the arts, industry and agriculture in Portugal and Brazil, by making the best recent works on those subjects available in Portuguese. Borba calls this work "one of the finest productions of the Arco do Cego." 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. 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. The press produced a relatively large number of works, but in 1801 it was incorporated into the Regia Oficina Typografica, later known as the Impressão Regia and then the Imprensa Nacional.The translator, José Joaquim Viegas Menezes, was among a number of Brazilians recruited to work at the press. Veigas was a native of Marianna, Minas Geraes, born in 1778. He studied in São Paulo and came to Coimbra to complete his studies before his ordination, in 1797. At the Arco do Cego he learned the basics of engraving and typography, which later led him to set up the first press in the present Minas Geraes, established in collaboration with Manuel José Barbosa in 1821.The beautiful allegorical frontispiece is by Antonio José Quinto, who is described by Soares (II, 506) as one of the best artists who worked at the Arco do Cego and the Impressão Regia. The plates following the text illustrate tools and techniques of engraving, and the results that can be achieved with various methods. About half these plates are signed "O P. Silva" or "O P@e Silva"; this artist has not been identified by Soares (see his comment on II, 567). Three other plates are signed "Jorge f@es," another artist whom Soares was unable to identify. The remaining plates are unsigned.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 565: reproducing the title-page; @Período colonial pp. 246-7. Sacramento Blake IV, 501. Innocêncio IV, 415.
