        Traite de Mineralogie

      Paris: Chez Louis, 1801. Complete with all errata and half titles present. Woodcut printer’s device on each title. Text volumes bound in contemporary quarter calf and marbled boards, with vellum corners, gilt spine with morocco labels, hinges slightly tender with the exception of volume 2 which has been rebacked; interiors exceptionally clean, some pages unopened. Approbation leaf in volume 1 signed “Louie” in a contemporary hand. The atlas is bound in original thick paper boards, faded, with minor but expertly administered repairs; untrimmed, very occasional light foxing, otherwise an extremely well preserved and clean copy. From the library of Arnold Thackray with his bookplate in each volume. Tucked into one of the volumes is a letter intended for a “Monsieur Cloez,” written on the letterhead of the ?cole Imperiale Polytechnique and dated 1859. The recipient was probably the French chemist Fran?ois Stanislas Cloez (1817-1883), founder of the Chemical Society of France and an important player in the development of analytical chemistry in the nineteenth century. The inclusion of this letter may indicate the set’s provenance, though there are no other markings to substantiate it. First edition of the author’s first major work, “the author’s most important work, containing his discovery of the geometrical law of crystallisation, known by his name, and of piezo-electriciy” (Zeitlinger). The first volume of text presents Ha?y’s crystal theory, followed by its application on mineral classification in the ensuing three volumes. “The basic idea of his theory is that the primitive form of crystals of a certain species results as a nucleus from the cleavage of all their secondary forms. If mechanical division proves to be impossible, there are other phenomena - particularly striation- that reveal the nucleus” (DSB). The atlas, often lacking from the set, visually demonstrates Haüy’s groundbreaking work on the molecular structure of crystals in an elegant arrangement of 86 plates showing hundreds of geometric figures. The painstaking work presented here prompted the Secretary of the Académie des Sciences at the time to credit him with raising mineralogy to a science as precise and methodological as astronomy (DBG). An extremely attractive and well preserved example of this important work.Haüy (1743-1822), considered the founder of crystallography, is chiefly remembered for his contributions to mineralogy. He wrote several works on physics, one of which, the Traité de physique, earned him an appointment to the Legion of Honor. During the Revolution he was thrown into prison for refusing to take the oaths required of priests, but was saved by the intercession of Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. Under Napolean he became professor of mineralogy at the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle.

        Reden größtentheils bey Gelegenheiten bey welchen sie zwar im 18. Jahrhundert geschrieben werden konnten, wohl aber erst im neunzehnten Jahrhundert gehalten werden dürften vom Verfasser der Peripathetiker. XV S., 1 Bl., S. (17)-363, 1 Bl. Pappbd d. Z. (berieben, Rücken unter Verwendung des alten Rückenschilds stimmig erneuert).

      Ohne Ort, 1801.. . Erste Ausgabe dieser zwölf fiktiven Reden oder Essays, sehr selten. Venturini (1768-1849), Historiker, Theologe, Erzähler und Dramatiker, gehörte zu dem politisch interessierten Kreis um Rebmann in Altona. Besonderes Aufsehen erregte er mit seinem, zusammen mit T. Heinrich Henke veröffentlichten scharf antiklerikalen Aufklärungsroman 'Die Peripatetiker des 18ten Jahrhunderts'. Seine 'Natürliche Geschichte des großen Propheten von Nazareth' erregte durch die Darstellung Jesu "das Aergernis weitester Kreise" (ADB). Er schrieb außerdem zahlreiche Beiträge zur Kirchengeschichte und zu Zeitschriften wie 'Braunschweigisches Journal', 'Chronik des 19. Jahrhunderts' oder für Brockhaus' Konversationslexikon. Im vorliegenden philosophisch-politisch-aufklärerischen Werk finden sich Kapitel wie: "Die Würde des Menschen als vernünftiges Wesen", "Ueber das beste Verhalten bei Einschränkung der Religionsfreiheit", "Es ist unsere Pflicht, der Wahrheit wegen, keine Aufopferung zu scheuen". Vermerk am Schluss: "Bei Schimmelpfennig in Halle gedruckt", vielleicht für Unzer in Königsberg. - Titel im Bug angefalzt, kaum fleckig.

        Red-bellied Macaw (L'Ara Macavouanne)

      Paris, 1801. Colour-printed stipple engraving, finished by hand, engraved by Bouquet, printed by Langlois. This print is from an apparently unrecorded issue of Levaillant's Perroquets published on large format paper (probably 'papier vélin colombier satiné'), with a scratch proof of the title and plate number, but otherwise avant-lettre. This issue is not recorded in any of the standard bibliographies. Jacques Barraband was the finest ornithological artist of his time. The son of a weaver at the Aubusson Factory, he is first mentioned as a pupil of Joseph Malaine (1745-1809), the eminent flower painter, and is known to have worked for both the Gobelin Factory and the porcelain factory of Sèvres. His most important work was undoubtedly the 300 or so drawings that he produced for François Levaillant's three great ornithological monographs, the greatest of which was the Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets (1801-1805).

Compiled from original affidavits and other authentic documents. Musgrave, political writer and politician for whom the events of 1798 had a single cause: papist aggression against protestants. Not surprisingly the account of the rising is filled with frightening examples of Irish Catholic brutality and perfidy intended to illustrate their total unfitness for political liberty. For Musgrave the great lesson to be learned from 1798 was the impossibility of political compromise with Irish Catholics. See ODNB.

        Les Trois Ages des Colonies, ou de leur etat passe, present et a venir.

      - Paris, Giguet 1801-02. Three volumes octavo contemporary speckled calf (surface nibbling on the sides). An excellent, fresh, crisp and handsome set. First edition. This was not a period to argue against the idea of empire in France and Pradt is a notable exception to the rule of silence. Perhaps this was seen as a clever polemical spanner to be insinuated into the works of the English, Dutch, Portugese and Spanish; certainly it did Pradt no harm. He thrived under Napoleon and momentarily did even better come the restoration, until his attempts to to curry the favour of all sides backfired. He was nothing if not a sleaze; once he was sure Napoleon was truly finished he published his claim that he was 'the one man too many' that brought Napoleon down. A couple of historians have argued about his influence on Jefferson and Adams and by descent the Monroe Doctrine but he won greatest favour among the liberationists of South America, apparently Bolivar awarded him a pension paid from his own funds. This is the first and most ambitious of many works that chewed over the nature and future of colonial power over the next thirty years and while his ideal outcome changed through the years his tenet remained the same: the independence of colonies was inevitable, desirable and beneficial for Europe.

        Stonewall" Jackson approves leave for Col. Kenton Harper (the officer who allegedly prompted Bernard Bee bestow upon Jackson his famous nickname) to visit his gravely ill wife. Jackson's order was countermanded the next day, prompting Harper to resign his commission

      "Fine content War date Autograph Endorsement Signed, ""T. J. Jackson Brig Gen P.A.C.S Comg 1 Brigade,"" accomplished on the docket of Kenton Harper (1801-1867) Autograph Letter Signed. ""Kenton Harper Col 5th Inf[an]t[r]y,"" 1 page, 5"" x 8"", ""Camp Harman"" [Manassas, Virginia], August 29, 1861, to Jackson requesting leave to visit his wife who had recently taken ill. Additionally docketed in an unknown hand the following day overruling Jackson's approval. Offered together with an additional Autograph Letter Signed, ""Kenton Harper Col. 5th Va. Infy,"" 1 page, 5"" x 8"", ""Camp Harman,"" September 3, 1861, tendering his resignation; Thomas G. Rhett (1821-1878) Autograph Document Signed, ""Thos. G. Rhett A. A. General,"" 1 page, 7.75"" x 9.75"", ""Hd Qrs Army of the Potomac,"" September 5, 1861, granting Harper permission to return home; manuscript Document Signed, ""Geo: Deas AAG.,"" 1 page, 7.75"" x 6.75"", Richmond, September 5, 1861 noting that Harper's resignation had been accepted and was in force. Documents and letters bear some marginal wear and folds as expected. The Kenton Harper ALS bearing Jackson's endorsement had been damaged by fire, but the resulting hole, which affects a few letters of Harper's letter, two words in Jackson's endorsement, and a few letters in the August 30 endorsement, have been expertly conserved and in-filled with the missing text added. Overall very good to fine condition. Kenton Harper was the son of a newspaperman in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania who purchased his own newspaper in Staunton, Virginia 1823. An ambitious young man, he parlayed his success in publishing into social power, winning election to the state legislature and as mayor of Staunton, and reaping the rewards with patronage appointments from friends in the capital. He served a brief stint in the Army during the Mexican War and later served as military governor of Parras in the state of Coahuila. In 1851-1852, Harper played a brief, but fascinating part in the development of the Chickasaw Nation, accepting an appointment as agent to the tribe. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Harper became commander of the 5th Virginia Infantry. Eight days after he received his colonel's commission on April 10, 1861, he led a raid on the U.S. Army arsenal at Harper's Ferry. Although retreating Union troops set the arsenal ablaze, he managed to salvage nearly 4,000 of the 15,000 muskets stored there, as well as valuable gun milling equipment and tools. On April 28, Col. Jackson arrived and assumed command at Harper's Ferry. Harper and the 5th Virginia became part of Jackson's brigade and later fought with him at First Manassas in June 1861. According to unsubstantiated reports, it was Harper who drew General Bernard Bee's attention to the brave conduct of Jackson that day which earned him the nickname, ""Stonewall."" In August, however, Harper learned that his wife had become gravely ill, and on August 29, 1861 he formally requested a leave of absence: ""I have just received intelligence of the serious illness of my wife, of such a nature, indeed, as induces me to apprehend I shall never see her again alive. Under the circumstances I feel constrained by the highest obligations of duty to ask leave of absence for a few days."" Contrary to what some historians have asserted, Jackson almost immediately approved of the leave: ""H[ea]d Qu[arte]rs 29 Aug. 1st Brigade Respectfully approved & forwarded T J. Jackson Brig Gen P[rovisional]. A[rmy].C[onfederate].S[tates]. Com[mandin]g 1[st] Brigade"". However the next day, Jackson's commander, Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, countermanded that decision and ordered Jackson to rescind the authorization. Beside Jackson's endorsement of the 29th is another endorsement in a secretarial hand, noting that the leave was ""disapproved"" on August 30. Left with little choice, Harper resigned his commission. On September 3, 1861 he penned a touching letter to Jackson, of which he retained a copy that reads in full: ""I respectfully tender my resignation as Colonel in The Active Volunteer Forces of Virginia. I deem it an act of justice to myself to say that I do so only because of the peculiar condition of my family, which requires my immediate presence. I hope therefore I may be allowed the indulgence to visit them at once upon my unconditional resignation."" But again, Johnston stood in the way. On the verso, Harper added a note that the resignation had been ""Approved by Gen. Jackson, but refused by Gen. Johnston until action could be had upon my resignation at Richmond."" Fortunately for Harper, Richmond came through, and on September 5, 1861, Assistant Adjutant General George Deas announced the acceptance of Harper's resignation which was to take effect the same day. Writing from the headquarters of the Army of the Potomac, the Assistant Adjutant General, Thomas G. Rhett (brother of Robert Barnwell Rhett, best known as the ""Father of Secession""), authorized Harper's departure from camp the same day, giving him ""permission to return home[.]"" Following his return home, Harper again served in the Virginia legislature until 1864 before being appointed again a colonel in the Confederate Army. He led a regiment in the Valley Campaigns of 1864 seeing action at Piedmont (June 5-6) and Waynesboro, Virginia (March 2, 1865)."

        Pl. 2 L’Ara Canga male From Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets

      Paris: 1801-5 - Jacques Barraband (1767-1809) From Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets Paris: 1801-5 Hand-colored copperplate engraving in very good condition 26 1/2” x 19 1/2” framed, framed in museum quality frame with uv plexiglass /archival materials Jacques Barraband’s (1767-1809) engravings of birds are masterpieces of French ornithological illustration. These stunning portraits were done for the distinguished ornithologist Francois Levaillant, who commissioned the artist to illustrate his landmark works on African ornithology, including the lavish and striking Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets. Images of African birds were popular in early 19th-century France both for their exoticism and for the interest in Africa that Napoleon’s campaigns were generating. The collaboration of Levaillant and Barraband represented a departure from previous ornithological texts in its emphasis on beauty and luxury, with sumptuously colored and flawlessly rendered birds. The project was a massive undertaking, which required over 300 finished watercolors. Apart from their undoubted beauty, Barraband’s engravings display a scientific accuracy that few ornithological artists have matched since. The meticulous hand-colored engravings in Levaillant’s publications were unmatched for the delicate modulations of tone and color, fine lines and perfect draftsmanship, making them exceptional in their richness and tonal variation. Each feather is described by dozens of parallel lines, providing remarkable detail and naturalistically textured color. Some of the prints are embellished with touches of gold leaf on the feathers of thecheeks and shoulders of the birds, emphasizing the preciousness of the plates and reproducing the iridescence of the birds’ feathers. The present selection of images represents an opportunity to acquire spectacular engraving by a foremost 19th-century natural history artist.

Arzt, geboren zu Pest 14. Mai 1761 erlangte bereits mit 19 Jahren daselbst die philos. Ductorwürde, machte mit einem kenntnissreichen und gebildeten Landsmanne eine grössere Reise nach Italien und Wien, wo er von VAN SWIETEN veranlasst wurde, sich dem medicinischen Studium zu widmen, das er 1786 in Lemberg beendete, worauf er in Wien die Doctorwürde erlangte. Er wurde darauf zunächst Arzt in Szegedin, 1790 Physicus der Csongrader und Csanader Gespanschaft und 1794 als Professor der Medicin an die Universität Pest berufen, wo er über medicinische Polizei las und auch als Arzt einen grossen Ruf gewann. Beim Ausbruch der orientalischen Pest in Syrmien 1794 machte er sich durch seine entschiedenen und trefflichen Massregeln um die Hintanhaltung der Seuche verdient, erhielt dafür den ungarischen Adel und, nachdem er auch bei dem späteren Ausbruche der Seuche in der Bukowina sich in gleicher Weise bewährt hatte, den Rathstitel.

      O. O. u. D.. 1 S. Qu.-8vo. Mit eh. Adresse.. An Professor Gösel: "Sie hatten mir freundlichst Ihren Besuch heute vormittag zugedacht, und ich war recht betrübt daß ein Versprechen mich band um dieselbe Zeit in der Ausstellung ein Stelldichein abzuwarten welches aufzukündigen so weitläuftig [!] als unsicher gewesen wäre [...] Deshalb frage ich nun meinerseits an: ob Sie wohl Sonntag Vormittags mich entschädigen mögen? [...]" - Amalie von Helvig, eine Nichte Charlotte von Steins, war Hofdame in Weimar und schrieb Lyrik, Balladen und Versepen, deren einige Schiller in seinen "Musenalmanach" und in die "Horen" aufnahm; Goethe überarbeitete mit ihr das Epos Die Schwestern von Lesbos' (1801). "Nach der Heirat 1803 folgte sie ihrem Gatten nach Stockholm. 1810 zurückgekehrt, lebte sie in Heidelberg und Berlin, 1814-16 nochmals in Schweden, dann endgültig in Berlin, wo sie dem Kreis um Bettina von Arnim angehörte" (DBE).

        Entomologie und Helminthologie des menschlichen Körpers oder Beschreibung und Abbildung der Bewohner und Feinde derselben unter den Insekten und Würmern. 2 Theile (all publ).

      . Hof, Gottfried Adolph Grau, 1801-1802, gr.-4°, XXVIII, 319, (2) pp., II, 154 pp., mit 2 gest. Titelvignetten und 22 kolor. Kupfertafeln nach Jördens, gestoch. von G. Baehrenstecher, J.C. Bock, P.W. Schwarz u. Wolf, Halbledereinband d.Zt.. "Die erste Parasitologie des Menschen" H. Weidner - Erste Ausgabe - Aus dem Vorbesitz des Entomologen Otto Taschenberg (1854-1922) ! - - Wertvolle Beschreibung der krankheitserregenden Insekten und Parasiten. - Hauptwerk des gelehrten Arztes und Zoologen in Hof (1764-1813). "Die beiden Bände spiegeln das Wissen seiner Zeit wider, das er fleißig aus allen ihm erreichbaren Werken zusammengetragen hat. Da er seine Quellen genau angibt, ist das Buch eine Fundgrube für die Geschichte der hygienischen Zoologie. Richtiges steht neben Falschem. Er beurteilt alles kritisch und flicht auch seine eigenen Erfahrungen ein, wo er welche erwerben konnte, so bei Läusen, Wanzen und einigen von ihm als neue Wurmarten angesehenen Tieren. Besonders interessant ist seine ökologische Betrachtungsweise der Parasiten ... Jördens gibt in seinen beiden Büchern nicht nur eine Beschreibung des Aussehens und der Lebensweise der Tiere, sondern auch Bekämpfungsratschläge. Als Wissenschaftler hat er dabei noch ein wenig ein schlechtes Gewissen; denn er entschuldigt sich gleichsam dafür, daß er auch praktische Ratschläge in sein Buch aufgenommen habe. Aber daß er diese Hemmungen zu überwinden weiß, zeigt ihn als ein fortschrittliches Kind seiner Zeit, in der man sich vom reinen Bücherwissen abzuwenden und dem Objekt selbst und dem Experimentieren zuzuwenden begann. So sehen wir aus seinem Werk, wie sich aus den rein praktischen Bedürfnissen allmählich eine angewandte Zoologie heraus entwickelt hat, die sich auf die Kenntnis der Biologie, modern ausgedrückt der Grundlagenforschung, aufbaut." H.Weidner, pp.110 ff. - - Gliederung - Erster Band: - Erste Abtheilung: Geschichte derjenigen Insekten, welche aussschließlich auf dem menschlichen Körper leben, und sich nur auf demselben fortpflanzen können. - - Zweyte Abtheilung: Geschichte derjenigen Insekten, die den menschlichen Körper nicht zum angewiesenen Wohnplatz haben, aber doch wegen vorzüglicher Plagen und Krankheiten, welche sie ihm zuziehen mehrwürdig sind. - 1. Abschnitt. Zufällig schädliche Insekten, welche den menschlichen Körper gewöhnlich und vorzugsweise aufsuchen. - 2. Abschnitt. Zufällig schädliche Insecten, welche den menschlichen Körper seltener und nur unter gewissen Umständen verletzen. - 3. Abschnitt Zufällig schädliche Insekten, welche als ganz gewöhnliche Erscheinung innerhalb des menschlichen Körpers vorgekommen sind / Insektenlarven und vollkommene Insekten unter der Haut und in den fleischigen Theilen des menschlichen Körpers. - - Dritte Abtheilung.

Würmer, welche gerne die Haut des menschlichen Körpers durchbohren und unter derselben ihren Aufenthalt suchen. - 3. Abschnitt. Würmer, welche sich zufällig in den inneren Theilen des menschlichen Köprers eingefunden haben. - - Anhang: - - Eine unbestimmte, dem menschlichen Körper zufällig schädliche Insekten- und Wurmart. - Erdichtete Würmer. - Verschiedenen Amphibien und andere Thiere, welche als ausserordentliche Erscheinungen in dem menschlichen Körper vorgekommen sind oder vorgekommen seyn sollen. - - "Von den (395) Abbildungen der dem Texte folgenden Kupfertafeln, welche ihre sorgfältige Bearbeitung in Rücksicht des Stichs und der Illumination der gefällig übernommenen Aufsicht des rühmlichst bekannten Kunstkenners, Herrn Frauenholzes in Nürnberg verdanken, habe ich vieles nach der Natur gemahlt, die meisen aber aus anderen, größeren Werken entlehnt. Ohngeachtet sie den Preis dieser Schrift sehr erhöhen, so machen sie doch einen wesentlichen Theil des Ganzen aus, da sich ohne ihre Beihülfe, mit aller wörtlicher Schilderung, kein deutlicher Begriff von den unbekannten Insekten und Würmern, oder den Organen machen läßt, wodurch sie schädlich zu werden pflegen." - - "Schlüßlich halte ich es nicht, für überflüssig, für manche Leser hoch eine kurze Erklärung der Titelvignetten beizufügen. In der zum ersten Bande gehörigen habe ich, die Sorglosigkeit und Unvorsichtigkeit, durch welche die meisten in denselben beschriebenen Insekten dem Menschen nachtheilig und gefährlich zu werden pflegen, in dein Bilde des kleinen Amor des Anakreons vorgestellt, der eine Rose abbrechen wollte, aber von der darauf sizzenden Biene, welche ihm zu schlafen schien, in den Finger gestochen wurde und nun wehklagend über die ganze Hand, zu seiner Mutter eilt, welche ihn warnend dadurch zu beruhigen sucht, daß sie die Schmerzen, die er durch seine Pfeile in den Herzen der Liebenden veranlagst, noch über die Schmerzen vom Bienenstiche , erhebt." - - "Die Vignette zum zweiten Bande, welcher von den auf und innerhalb des menschlichen Körpers Nahrung suchenden Würmern handelt, habe ich in Beziehung auf den Gedanken entworfen: der Mensch ist selbst eine Welt und seine Bewohner ergötzen Sich bei seinem Schmerz, und stellt die Operation vor, die ein Neger an einem Europäer verrichtet, an dessen Fuß sich ein Guineawum in die Haut eingebissen hat, der unter derselben wie ein durchschimmernder Nerve zu erscheinen pflegt. Diese Operation besteht darinnen, daß dieser beträchtlich lange Wurm durchs langsame Aufwickeln auf ein Stäbchen ausgezogen wird, wobey die Neger grofse Behutsamkeit anzuwenden pflegen, weil gefährliche Zufälle erfolgen, wenn der Wurm abreißt und ein Theil, desselben zurückbleibt." - - Frisches Exemplar, bis auf die beiden leicht fleckigen Titelblätter, ansonsten fleckenfrei, die Tafeln mit aller feinstem Kolorit. - - Horn/Schenkling 11274.

Feltrinelli III, 286: "The plates include a mixture of exterior and interior views, the former almost exclusively after Terreni. Little appears to be known of Terreni, but it seems likely that he is related to Giuseppe Maria Terreni (1739-1811), a native of Livorno, who worked in Florence and established a reputation as a vedutista". - "La lettera dedicatoria e sottoscritta dai fratelli Terreni, che fecero quel viaggio, disegnarono le vedute e le incisero assieme ad altri incisori, fra cui: Vincenzo Soinazzi, Giuseppe Pera, Cosimo Rossi, Giuseppe Politi, Carlo Cecchi e Matteo Carboni.

        c. 1862 Admiral David Farragut Signed Carte de Visite

      - David G. Farragut (1801-1870) was a lifelong U.S. Navy man. He began as a midshipman at the tender age of 9, and rose through the ranks over a long career. He was Rear Admiral from 1862-1864, before being promoted to Vice Admiral, then Admiral in 1866. He is one of only six naval officers to be awarded the honor of "active duty for life" status. This is an excellent "from life" carte de visite photograph of Farragut. It has the backmark of Charles Deforest Fredricks (1823-1894), one of the period's best-known photographers, and one of the first to create cartes de visite. It is boldly signed on the verso, "D. G. Farragut, Rear Admiral." Fine, with fine contrast and resolution. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Histoire Naturelle, Générale et Particulière des Reptiles. Ouvrage faisant suite à l'Histoire Naturelle générale et particulière, composée par Leclerc de Buffon et rédigée par C.S. Sonnini , 8 volumes, complete

      Paris: Dufart, 1801-1803 (An X-XII). First edition.. The text and plates are exceptionally bright and clean, the endpapers show some browning near the internal joints of each volume, the leather spines show minor rubbing with occasional loss of some gilt; a tight and clean copy in very good condition.. Pp. 384; 432; 452; 397; 365; 447; 436; 439, with 100 black-and-white engraved plates and 2 folded tables. Publisher's original one quarter leather, the smooth spines are gilt-ruled and highly decorated in four panels and gilt-lettered in the remaining panels, over later French marbled boards, with original endpapers and original marbled page edges; volume 6 is rebacked in one quarter leather that matches the original leather, 8vo (207 x 138 mm). According to Kraig Adler, Contributions to the History of Herpetology, pg. 20: "Daudin's most extensive herpetological work, and the one on which his reputation rests, was the 'Histoire Naturelle, Générale et Particulière des Reptiles' (1801-1803), in eight volumes with 100 plates." "This book, part of the so-called Sonnini edition of Buffon's encyclopedia, was the standard herpetological reference of its day." "Daudin stated that he had examined over 1100 specimens belonging to 517 species, triple the number catalogued by Count Lacepède only 25 years before, his genera are well defined." François Marie Daudin died prematurely in 1804 just after the publication of his magnum opus. This work remained the major herpetological reference until the publication of 'Erpétologie Générale by Duméril and Bibron (1834-1854). Small bookplate of Camvsat de Vavcovrdon of Trecis on front endpaper of each volume. Also name stamp of signature of Kraig Adler in each volume.

      Firenze, presso Giuseppe Tofani, 1801-1803. In folio (mm. 563 x 360), 3 voll., mz. pelle coeva (con abrasioni e spacchi alle cerniere), tit. oro su tassello al dorso, pp. VIII,168; IV,140; IV,140. Rarissima "prima edizione" di questa suggestiva e magnifica raccolta di complessive 209 tavole (a p. pagina) che raffigurano vedute panoramiche e monumenti delle città toscane.

        [K626]. Missa pro Defunctis Requiem Seelenmesse mit untergelegtem deutschem Texte

      Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel [without PN]. [after 1801]. Oblong folio. Half leather with blue cloth boards, spine in decorative gilt ruled compartments titled in gilt, marbled edges. 1f. (half-title with fine pictorial engraving by W. Böhm after G. V. Kininger), [i] (title), 6-178, [i] ("Das Requiem. Nach dem Lateinischen. Zu W.A. Mozarts Musik von Herrn Professor C.A.H. Clodius in Leipzig"), [i] ("Der Tag des Gerichts. Parodie des Requiem von Herrn Kapellmeister Hiller in Leipzig") pp. Typeset. Text in Latin and German. With handstamp "Arnold Dreyer Organist Berlin N. Kastanien-Allee 64, II. Sprechst. 1—2" to foot of half- title. Manuscript bass figures added in pencil to pp. 6-13 (Introit) and in red crayon, in a different hand, to pp. 151-152 (beginning of Agnus Dei). Dynamics added in red crayon to p. 52. Tempo "Andante c[on] moto" added in pencil to p. 59 (beginning of Recordare). Some instrumentation identified in pencil at inner margin of p. 147. Half-title and title quite heavily stained and with some dampstaining; several additional leaves dampstained; slightly foxed and soiled; some leaves slightly cropped; occasional paper repairs. The unusual pagination results from the omission of a dedication page included with the first four issues. . First Edition, fifth issue. Haberkamp pp. 385-87. Köchel 6 p. 729. Hoboken 12, 610 and plate 15 (half title). RISM M4050/51 (not distinguishing between issues). The German text, not credited, is by Johann Arnold Minder, a Lutheran pastor in Hamburg (Schubert: "Eine frühe Abschrift von Mozarts Requiem aus dem Besitz des Aloys Weiß – Umfeld und Folgerungen" in Musikgeschichte als Verstehensgeschichte: Festschrift für Gernot Gruber zum 65. Geburtstag, ed. Joachim Brügge et al, pp. 331-47). The addition of a vernacular text underlay to a Latin mass was fashionable in its time and place, when the Catholic Church opposed performances of liturgical music in concerts. The German text avoids proper names (including "Jesus Christ" but excluding "Israel") but unlike, for instance, Christian Schreiber's somewhat later German text to Beethoven's Mass in C minor, op. 86, it remains a recognizable paraphrase of the original. The more literal German translation of the text of the Requiem by Christian August Clodius (1737-1784) and the Parodie by Johann Adam Hiller (1728-1804), both printed to the final leaf, are also written to fit the music. The organist Arnold Dreyer was active in Berlin in the first three decades of the 20th century. He served at the Protestant (Lutheran) Zionskirche. His best-known student was the composer Max Butting (1888-1976).

      London: Printed by T. Bensley... for the Author 1801. . 4to. (ii), 32, 86, (iii)-viii, xi, (i), 32 pp. Later half brown calf, spine with raised bands, gilt lettering to compartments. In all 31 plates, comprising: 7 full page views of country seats, 1 full page illustration of the ?"River God?" statue in Lambeth and 23 maps including 2 general folding maps, 9 regional maps and other maps and plans, many with varying degrees of colouring. Extremities lightly rubbed, a very good copy. An uncommon and bibliographically complex work, originally published in parts over many years, there appears to be no standard collation and the composition of different copies can vary significantly. This example consists of four distinct sections: Parts I and II of the ?"Companion?", the ?"Tabulæ Distantiæ...?" for Surrey (bearing the author?'s Dorking imprint dated 1789) and the ?"Description of Southwark, Lambeth, Newington, &c?" (sometimes not included). This copy has more illustrations than others we have seen, it has evidently been made up, with three of the maps and views duplicated and others bearing imprints dated up to 1820. See Upcott p. 1217-19, with which this copy conforms quite closely. That copy with a corresponding distance table for Sussex not present here.

Die Einbände tragen den Namen des Bankiers Emil Ladenburg (1822 - 1902), des Mitinhabers des gleichnamigen Bankhauses, aus dem später die Deutsche Bank hervorging. Sein großes Interesse an der Musik wird u.a. dadurch bezeugt, dass Joseph Joachim und Clara Schumann zum engen Freundeskreis der Familie gehörten (nach Wikipedia). 2.

Er zählt zu den Gründervätern der Frankfurter Universität, deren "Wilhelm-Merton-Zentrum für europäische Integration und internationale Wirtschaftsordnung" nach ihm benannt ist (nach Ratz, Ursula, "Merton, Wilhelm", in: Neue Deutsche Biographie 17 (1994), S. 184-187 [Onlinefassung]; s.a. 38072330/ geschichte).
