        Account of the Life and Writings of William Robertson

      London: Printed by A. Strahan..., 1801. FIRST EDITION. 4to, pp. iv, 202 [203 Errata, 204 blank, 205 adverts, 206 blank]. BOUND WITH ROBERTSON (William): The History of America. Books IX and X. Containing the History of Virginia to the year 1688; and the History of New England, to the year 1652. London: Printed for A. Strahan..., 1796. FIRST EDITION. 4to, pp. vii [viii adverts], 143 [144 blank], including half-title. 2 volumes in 1, contemporary calf, gilt spine, red morocco label; upper front joint cracked, otherwise a very good copy. Stewart's life of Robertson also appeared in an octavo in 1801, but the quarto edition takes precedence and is less commonly found than the octavo. It was reviewed in the April, 1803, issue of The Edinburgh Review (II, 229 - 249); rather grudgingly, the reviewer conceded that the work "may be considered as belonging to anew and most interesting department of literature. It is a union of general criticism with literary history, and contains the most judicious and profound remarks upon some celebrated writings, interspersed with all those anecdotes concerning the works which the reader is most desirous to know." Robertson's History of America (1777) covered the development of both South and North America up to the middle of the 17th century, and Robertson had planned to continue his work. After his death in 1793, his son discovered and published the above fragment of the planned continuation.

        South East View of the Rock of Tritchopoly

      From Edward Ormes series "Views in Hindoostan", published in London in 1801-4. - A wonderfully detailed hand colored engraving depicting scenes in India by Edward Orme from his series “Views in Hindoostan”, published in London in 1801-4. Overall dimensions of this print are 23"x16.5". The 24 views of India depicted in "Views in Hindoostan" were redrawn and published by Edward Orme. Colonel Ward, a skilled amateur artist and member of the Madras Army, originally drew the sketches that Orme reworked for Views of Hindostan. Richard Chase, the mayor of Madras to whom this publication was dedicated, acquired a number of Ward’s sketches and passed them onto Orme. At the time of this publication there was a renewed interest in India , as the Fourth Mysore War had recently ended. The Fourth Anglo-Mysore War (1798-1799) was a war in South India between the Kingdom of Mysore and the British East India Company under Lord Wellesley. The war ended with the siege of Seringapatam, the capital of Mysore , and the killing of Tipu Sultan, the rebel leader of Mysore , by the British in 1799. William Orme was a talented landscape painter, who exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1797 and 1819. In addition to "Views of Hindostan", Orme was involved in several other publications including J. Walker’s "The Itinerant" (1799), Francis William Blagdon’s "A Brief History of Ancient and Modern India" (1806) and F.B. Solvyn’s "The Costumes of Hindostan" (1805). Aquatint with hand coloring by watercolor was the most popular technique for works showing the colors and the varied landscapes and architectural sites of India . Overall very good condition with some foxing/staining in margins.

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.

        Philosophisch-Medicinische Abhandlung über Geistesverirrungen oder Manie.

      . Aus dem Französischen übersetzt und mit Anmerkungen versehen von Mich. Wagner . - Wien, bey Carl Schaumburg, 1801, 8°, L, 458 pp., 1 Bl. Druckfehler, 1 Falttabelle, 2 KupferTaf., schöner Pappband.. "Die Befreiung der Irren von den Ketten" - Die extrem seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des im gleichen Jahr erschienen Grundlagenwerk "Traite medico-philosophique sur l'alienation mentale, ou la manie". Einer der wichtigsten und wertvollsten medizinischen Klassiker und Markstein in der Geschichte der Psychiatrie. - First German Edition. One of the most important medical classics and one of the most valuable texts in the history of psychiatry, written in the opening year of the new century. It is both a postcript to the eighteenth and a preface to the nineteenth century. Pinel wrote this treatise on the basis of his experience in the Bicetre. His medical theories and classifications are very methodical and clear and they contain some original ideas, but their importance pales in comparison with his work of hospital reform and reorganization by which a new tradition was established and a new perspective opened for practical and research psychiatry; it is this achievement which always come to mind when the name of Philippe Pinel is mentioned. On May 24, 1798, at the risk of his own life and liberty, he struck off the chains of the insane at the Bicetre, placing them in hospitals under lenient physicians, and doing away with the abuses of drugging and blood-letting to which they were subjected.

        Athenaei Naucratitae Deipnosophistarum Libri Quindecim

      Argentorati : ex typographia societatis Bipontinae, anno IX. [1801-07] - 1801 Deipnosophistae Classical GREEK Athenaeus of Naucratis Cooking Cookbook SET Very RARE Complete 15 vol Greek Lit / comp@$2,375! The Deipnosophistae is the Latin title of an early 3rd-century AD Greek work, Deipnosophistaí, lit. “The Dinner Experts”) by the Greco-Egyptian author Athenaeus of Naucratis. It is a long work of literary, historical, and antiquarian references set in Rome at a series of banquets held by the protagonist Publius Livius Larensis for an assembly of grammarians, lexicographers, jurists, musicians, and hangers-on. It is sometimes called the oldest surviving cookbook. Athenaeus of Naucratis was a Greek rhetorician and grammarian, flourishing about the end of the 2nd and beginning of the 3rd century AD. The Suda says only that he lived in the times of Marcus Aurelius, but the contempt with which he speaks of Commodus, who died in 192, shows that he survived that emperor. Several of his publications are lost, but the fifteen volume Deipnosophistae mostly survives. We find other complete examples of this very rare set for sale elsewhere for as much as $2,375!

The Congress at Sydney (1981) accepted proposal C to Article 13 (see Taxon 30: 106. 1981) whereby the starting point for nomenclature of fungi becomes Linnaeus, Sp. pl.

Persoon (1761/62-1836) laid a firm foundation for mycology after Linnaeus and Jussieu intergrated the systematics of flowering plants.

      France, 1801. <p>Electricity. Du Galvanisme ou de la Pile de Volta. Manuscript in French. [11.2]pp., small 4to., on 6 conjugate leaves, stitched. [France, c. 1800.] Lightly creased, a little browning, pinhole worming affecting 1 or 2 letters but entirely legible & very good. </p><p>Manuscript, either a draft of an article or copy of an article, on Volta&#39;s pile and technical improvements to it, and medical applications of the pile. The manuscript is labeled "No. 20" in the upper left corner. There is some crossing out and interpolation of text, which suggests a draft for publication rather than a copy of a published article. In either case, the text is written in academic style, beginning with a brief history of the predecessors of Volta, and reference to follow-up work by Aldini, Humboldt, Wollaston, Davy, HallÇ, Monge, Fourcroi [sic], Biot, Thenard, Hauy and Gay-Lussac. Volta&#39;s pile is described in detail (2.2pp.), then improvements on it (5pp.), including a mention of Cruikshank. </p><p>The effects of the pile on the body are then discussed (2.5pp.), notably muscular effects, effects on secretions, effects on the brain, and the skin. The main difference between the effect on the body of current from the pile and from the Leyden jar is stated, and a comparison of effects depending on the size of the pile is made. In conclusion, it is noted that either the pile or the Leyden jar is effective in paralyses, amauroses in an early state, partial deafness, accidental muteness, neuralgias, chronic rheumatic pain, suppression of menstruation, asphyxia, etc., and that the pile may be preferrable in paralysis of the facial nerve, loss of sensation, and amaurosis. See Rowbottom & Susskind 51, discussing early papers on the medical applications of Volta&#39;s pile, especially their summary of Grappengiesser&#39;s recommendations (1801, G-M 1988.1), which is similar in content and word order to the summary remarks in our manuscript. </p>

        Pl. 79 La Perruche a large queue

      Paris: 1801-5 - Jacques Barraband (1767-1809) From Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets Paris: 1801-5 Hand-colored copperplate engraving in very good condition 30" x 23" framed, framed in museum quality frame with uv plexiglass /archival materials Jacques Barraband&#146;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&#146;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&#146;s engravings display a scientific accuracy that few ornithological artists have matched since. The meticulous hand-colored engravings in Levaillant&#146;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&#146; feathers. The present selection of images represents an opportunity to acquire spectacular engraving by a foremost 19th-century natural history artist.

        Addresses to the Deity. The third edition.

      Printed for T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies, by G.R. Clarke, London: 1801 - 2 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&#146;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]. 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 +.

(DSB IV, p. 512). In his works Fabricius described many Australian and New Zealand insects brought back by Captain Cook's around -the-world voyages.//Provenance: Bookplates of Charles Alluaud and J. d'Aguilar.//Horn-Schenkling I, 6215.

        A View Within the Walls of a Pagoda

      London 1801 - Edward Orme From drawings by Colonel Ward Views in Hindoostan London: 1801-1804 Hand-colored aquatint engraving 16 ½&#148; x 23&#148;; 23 1/2&#148; x 27 1/2&#148; framed The 24 views of India depicted in this work were redrawn and published by Edward Orme. Colonel Ward, a skilled amateur artist and member of the Madras Army, originally drew the sketches that Orme reworked for Views of Hindostan. Richard Chase, the mayor of Madras to whom this publication was dedicated, acquired a number of Ward&#146;s sketches and passed them onto Orme. At the time of this publication there was a renewed interest in India, as the Fourth Mysore War had recently ended. The Fourth Anglo-Mysore War (1798-1799) was a war in South India between the Kingdom of Mysore and the British East India Company under Lord Wellesley. The war ended with the siege of Seringapatam, the capital of Mysore, and the killing of Tipu Sultan, the rebel leader of Mysore, by the British in 1799. William Orme was a talented landscape painter, who exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1797 and 1819. In addition to Views of Hindostan, Orme was involved in several other publications including J. Walker&#146;s The Itinerant (1799), Francis William Blagdon&#146;s A Brief History of Ancient and Modern India (1806) and F.B. Solvyn&#146;s The Costumes of Hindostan (1805).
