        [X] Six Introductory Lectures, to Courses of Lectures Upon the Institutes and Practice of Medicine, Delivered to the University of Pennsylvania

      Philadelphia: John Conrad & Co, 1801. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. 8vo, 168 pp. Contemporary leather boards, rebacked with new leather spine; endpapers replaced. Signature of Luther Guiteau (likely the Trenton, NY physician of that name [b. 1778], great-uncle of Garfield assassin Charles Guiteau) on the title page. Minor foxing, normal wear to boards; near fine. "Writing prolifically over nearly half a century, Rush was the first American physician to become widely known at home and abroad....[He] moved medicine toward diagnoses and treatment regimens that were more comprehensible and manageable. He also encouraged the use of hypotheses in medicine (although he showed considerably less rigor about testing them experimentally)....Rush's stature elevated the study of medicine in the United States. His position as educator gave him far-reaching influence in the American medical profession" (ANB). This work consists of a collection of lectures on medicine that were particularly well received by his students, and which they asked to have published. Among the topics covered are the relationship between observation and reasoning in medicine, the connection between physical condition and intellectual activity, the vices and virtues of physicians, and factors that have impeded progress in medical science and practice.

        Minutes of the Proceedings of the Convention of Delegates from the Abolition Societies Established in Different Parts of the United States, Assembled at Philadelphia [First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Seventh Conventions]

      Philadelphia: Printed by Zachariah Poulson, Junr, 1801. Softcover. Very good. Six sewn pamphlets, pp. 32, 32, 32, 59, 20, 55. Three (1794, 1797, 1801) untrimmed in original plain paper wrappers, three (1795, 1796, 1798) with edges trimmed and in later wrappers. First volume lacks a front blank and has the contemporary signature of Samuel Rodman on the title page; front wrap of fourth volume detached but present, with the contemporary signature of Isaac Hicks. A very good set. These pamphlets record the proceedings of the first American effort at national organization around the anti-slavery cause. The first meeting, held January 1, 1794, drew delegates from the abolition societies of Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. Later meetings added attendees from Rhode Island and Virginia, and each pamphlet lists the names of those present-among them Benjamin Rush, Jonathan Edwards, and many important early abolitionists. The first gathering "voted to petition Congress to prohibit the slave trade and also to appeal to the legislatures of the various states to abolish slavery. The petitions pointed out the inconsistency of a country that had recently rejected the tyranny of kings engaging in 'domestic despotism.'" (LOC). They also issued an address urging all citizens to accept "the obligations of justice, humanity, and benevolence toward our African brethren, whether in bondage or free." According to Weinstein, despite limited funds or authority and infrequent meetings, these conventions "harnessed considerable public support for moral reform and imbued their ideological successor, the American Anti-Slavery Society, with cornerstone goals designed to 'bring the whole nation to a speedy repentance.'" Weinstein 26, Evans 26533; Sabin 49379; Howes M-652.

        Ueber die Ablenkung eines Lichtstrals von seiner geradlinigen Bewegung, durch die Attraktion eines Weltkörpers

      Berlin: bey dem Verfasser, 1801. <p>Soldner, Johann Georg von (1776-1833). Ueber die Ablenkung eines Lichtstrals von seiner geradlinigen Bewegung, durch die Attraktion eines Weltkörpers . . . In Astronomisches Jahrbuch für das Jahr 1804 (1801): 161-172. Whole volume, 8vo. [4], 268pp. 2 folding plates. Berlin: bey dem Verfasser, und in Commission bey G. A. Lange, 1801. 200 x 115 mm. Half sheep, marbled boards ca. 1801, minor worming in front cover, lightly rubbed but sound. Fine copy. Small ownership stamp on title, occasional marginal annotations.</p><p>First Edition. Soldner&#39;s paper represents "the earliest work on the deflection of light in the gravitation field of the sun . . . On the assumptions that light has weight, and that it is deflected according to Newton&#39;s law of gravitation, [Soldner] computed the bending of a ray passing the limb of the sun." (Wylie, "The path of light in a gravitational field," Am. Math. Monthly 32 [1925]: 404). Soldner&#39;s calculations "are based on Newton&#39;s emission theory, according to which light consists of particles. On this picture the scattering of light by the sun becomes an exercise in Newtonian scattering theory. . . . Soldner made the scattering calculation, put in numbers, and found ? [the value of the deflection]= 0."84" (Pais, p. 200)-a result remarkably close to the actual value of 0."87. In 1911 Einstein, in his paper "Ueber den Einfluss der Schwerkraft auf die Ausbreitung des Lichtes" (Ann. Phys. 35: 898-908), used a different method but the same basic assumptions to come up with a similar value for this "Newtonian deflection." The gravitational bending of light by the sun was one of three tests Einstein posed in 1916 to confirm the general theory of relativity; in 1919, Sir Arthur Eddington and his collaborators became the first to observe and record this phenomenon. Pais, Subtle is the Lord, pp. 198-200.</p>

        Driving Elephants into a Keddah

      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).

        Autograph letter signed (&#132;Humboldt").

      Cartagena (Kolumbien), 30. III. 1801. - Large 4to. 2 pp. Unknown letter from his trip to America, written to the unnamed businessman Luis de la Cuesta at Havana, giving some news from his arrival at Cartagena. On June 5, 1799, Humboldt and Bonpland had started their research trip to Latin America. Reaching Venezuela on July 16, they explored the environment of Cumaná and went the Orinoco by ship (March to June, 1800). Both went from Venezuela to Cuba, and afterwards to Colombia, where they have reached Cartagena that very day on which Humboldt wrote the present letter. &#132;Le Courier, mon respectable ami, part le même jour de notre arrivée en ce port, de sorte que j&#146;aime de profiter de cette occasion pour Vous donner un signe de vie et pour Vous réitérer les sentimens de reconnaissance et d&#146;attachement que Vos bontés m&#146;ont inspiré. Nous sommes sain et sauf, mais la Navigation était détestable. 21 jours de traversée. D&#146;abord nous perdîmes quelques jours en entrant à la Trinité (où j&#146;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&#146;une mille. Sur la Cote nous eumes des brizes très fortes et une mer terrible. Nous étions toujours sou l&#146;eau. Nous entrames dans le Rio Sinu pays sauvage qui porte encore cette empreinte d&#146;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&#146;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&#146;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&#146;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 [.]". - Letters from Humboldt&#146;s travels through America are of utmost rarity. - Somewhat browned and spotty; some damage to edges.

        Six Picturesque Views in North Wales

      T Bensley, London: J Mawman, 1801 Engraved in Aquatinta by Alken, from Drawings made on the Spot: With Poetical reflections on leaving that country. In modern quarter dark green leather with green marbled boards, corners very lightly bumped. Spine, has raised bands, title in gilt to red leather label. Internally, new endpapers, original paper wrapper title tipped on to fpd, small tear repair to frontis corner, faded ink name to titlepage at head GJ Ball & E John), small old ink "c" to corner of 1 plate, 32 pp, 6 tissue guarded full size plates, minimum of browning. Views are: Fall of the River Machno. Pont y Pair. Conway Castle. Pulpit of Hugh Llwyd. Pont y Glynn & Bedgelert Church. This follows the publication of 4 Picturesque Views in North Wales in 1798 by Broughton which was much larger in size. A lovely copy of an uncommon title.(Graesse 548. COPAC. WorldCat)Samuel Alken trained as an architect. His earliest publication was A New Book of Ornaments (1779), he seems to have lived by watercolours, aquatints, and etchings, although he may have had another occupation as a drawing-master or craftsman. In 1784 he published a set of sporting landscapes after Samuel Howitt and later issued a series of excellent aquatints after caricature drawings by Thomas Rowlandson. In 1789 he added the aquatint to Rowlandson&#39;s etchings of a set of shooting scenes designed by George Morland. During the 1790s he aquatinted a large number of plates for sets and books of picturesque views in the lakes, Wales, Ireland, Switzerland, and other places. See ODNB for a full Bio.

        REMARKS ON THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; DRAWN UP FROM HIS OWN OBSERVATIONS, AND FROM THE OBSERVATIONS OF OTHER TRAVELLERS.

      Dublin: Printed by William M'Kenzie, [?]. 1801 - 72pp. Dbd. Occasional light foxing and dampstaining. Contemporary manuscript text correction on p.20. A good copy. Lacks the half title. A pamphlet highly critical of the United States, based on the author's personal experience in America and the works of other authors. The text consists of Hull's observations, "founded chiefly on actual experience," supported by numerous, lengthy quotes from other late-18th-century travelers to the United States, primarily the Duc de La Rochefoucauld- Liancourt and Isaac Weld. Intended for potential emigrants, Hull concludes: "I have seen too many people in America unhappy from not having had correct information respecting the country before they set out, not to make me desirous of telling those that remain at home what I know." Howes describes the work as "severely condemnatory." HOWES H779, "aa." SABIN 33638. OCLC 1648408.

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.

Fvng., Dec. 1801) . are not affected by, and take priority over, homonymous or synonymous names published earlier". Persoon (1761/62-1836) laid a firm foundation for mycology after Linnaeus and Jussieu intergrated the systematics of flowering plants.

      - Wien, R. Sammer, 1801-1804. 3 volumes. Folio (370 x 230mm). With 3 engraved title-vignettes and 299 (of 300) handcoloured engraved plates of trees (shrubs, flowers etc) and 28 handcoloured engraved unnumbered plates depicting buds. Contemporary blue boards, spines with red gilt lettered label (one binding with some staining). The work is complete in 3 volumes and the text gives explanations from plates 1 to 300. A 4th volume was planned but never published. A few copies exist which have a number of plates of this unpublished volume. The present work is very rare and the only bibliographies which mention the book are Nissen, Pritzel and Rehder (The Bradley Bibliography). Nissen copies Pritzel and both are calling for 400 plates, 360 numbered, with additional 40 unnumbered plates illustrating buds.Pritzel bases his description on a copy in the Royal Library in Vienna. This is certainly in error as this copy, now in the Oesterreichische Nationalbibliothek, has 328 plates and has the same number of text-pages as our copy.The first two volumes are a later issue with the same letterpress. Our copy lacks plate 258 and has 28 plates on buds. There are copies with 30 to 31 plates on buds, but 3 plates are always original drawings as the engraved plates were never made. Publication of the work must have been problematic due to the 'Napoleonic pause' in book production.This beautifully illustrated work devoted to the native, foreign and exotic trees and shrubs is splendidly executed in the tradition of the Austrian Golden Period of botanical book illustration. Franz Johann Schulz was an Austrian botanist and artist. The description of the ornamental trees, of the fruit trees and of the shrubbery are presented first by means of an introduction with nomenclature in Latin, German and French, followed by information on the cultivation and blooming seasons. The images provide scientific information on flowers, leaves and seeds with a double definition in Latin and German.Nissen BBI, 1815; Pritzel 8463: Rehder, The Bradley Bibliography I, 293, quoting a copy with 327 plates.

Le nom de Latocnaye est celui d'une terre à Sainte-Marie de Pornic, entrée dans la famille Bougrenet par mariage en 1574.D'abord officier dans l'armée royale (régiment de Monsieur), il fuit la Révolution et émigre en 1791. Il s'engage dans l'Armée des Princes à Coblence. Après la dissolution de cette armée à l'automne 1792, il part à Londres où il arrive fin décembre 1792. Il rencontre Chateaubriand. S'ennuyant rapidement dans le milieu des émigrés désoeuvrés et sans ressources, il entreprend un voyage en Angleterre, puis en Écosse, en Irlande et finalement en Scandinavie.Muni d'argent et de lettres de recommandation pour des notables et des ecclésiastiques de l'Église Établie, il loge chez l'habitant et dans les résidences de ses hôtes, et se déplace presque uniquement à pied, portant un bagage très réduit. Il rédige en français des récits de voyage qu'il fait imprimer à ses frais et place lui-même en souscription et chez les libraires. Ses ouvrages ont du succès et sont rapidement traduits en anglais et en allemand.Il rentre en France en 1802 et obtient sa radiation des listes de l'émigration mais ne se rallie pas au Consulat, contrairement à Chateaubriand. Son frère Joseph-Louis était mort à la guerre dans les armées de la République. Il se retire à Thouaré et Luçon dans sa famille. Il sera décoré à la Restauration au titre de l'armée des émigrés. Il ne reprendra pas d'activité au service de l'État. Son frère cadet Alexandre-Charles sera sous-préfet à Paimboeuf.DE TOUTE RARETE.UNIQUE.en bon état malgré le petit défaut signalé (good condition in spite of the small defect indicated).
