        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 "Traité médico-philosophique sur l'aliénation 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 Bicêtre. 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 Bicêtre, placing them in hospitals under lenient physicians, and doing away with the abuses of drugging and blood-letting to which they were subjected.

        Set of Ten Parrots.

      Langlois Paris -05 1801 - Ten stipple engravings, printed in colours and finished by hand, with fine, strong colours. Framed and glazed. Overall size: 55.8 by 40.7 cm. 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, including the present Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets, which is considered the most comprehensive and complete catalogue on the subject. This magnificent work includes some of the most lively and colorful bird illustrations ever created. They capture not only the defining characteristics of the species, but also the charming personality of the individual bird.

      Copper engraving with original hand colour, dissected into 24 sections and mounted on original linen, folding into original card slipcase (Excellent, especially fine original hand colour, only a few very small, light stains; card slipcase scuffed with some minor loss to lower edges), 125 x 145 cm (inches). - London, 1801. An absolutely stellar example of Aaron Arrowsmith’s resplendent wall map of Asia, the finest map of the continent made during the Enlightenment Era. - This powerful composition represents the apogee of the cartography of Asia during the Enlightenment Era. Showcasing virtually all of Continental Asia on a monumental scale, the map was made by Aaron Arrowsmith of London, who due to his privileged connections with all of the official and private map-making entities of the British Empire, was during this time the world’s most important map maker. Asia is presented with unprecedented scientific accuracy, although it will be apparent to the modern observer that, while some areas are projected with amazing accuracy, other areas reveal that European knowledge was very limited. The present example of the map is especially fine, as the original colouring is much more lavish and brilliant than on most other examples, while the fact that the map is dissected and folded into its original slipcase, has ensured that it has been preserved in remarkably stellar condition. The map takes in most of Asia, extending from the Ural Mountains and the Aegean Sea, in the west, all the way east to include the Kamchatka Peninsula and the Philippines; and from the Arctic Ocean, above Siberia, in the north, all the way down and the northern part of Malaya, in the south. The engraving, which is of unusually high quality, dramatically brings out the topographical details, such as rivers, lakes, deserts and mountains, while each region is coloured in the resplendent original hues that were signature traits of Arrowsmith’s masterpieces. Interestingly, the map also features some notes describing historical vignettes, as well as major traditional overland trade routes and the tracks of some key recent European voyages in the Far East. Aaron Arrowsmith was obsessive about acquiring the best and most recent geographical sources, not only from British entities, but also from foreign contacts and mapmakers. He was remarkably gifted at discerning the most accurate geographical intelligence from a wide variety of, sometimes contradictory, sources, sorting the wheat from the chaff. Arrowsmith’s wall maps were considered great intellectual and decorative masterpieces during their time. Notably, Thomas Jefferson possessed several such maps (including an example of the present map of Asia), which he prominently displayed at Monticello.SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

        Feuilles d'analyse appliquée a la Géométrie .

      Paris Badouin An 9 1801 - Second edition (enlarged). 4to., 142 pp., 3 engraved plates, contemporary half calf, neatly rebacked, an excellent example. Descriptive geometry is the science of presenting a three dimensional object on a two dimensional plane. Gaspard Monge invented descriptive geometry. His methods allowed for accurate representation of objects, including shadows and vanishing points. His methods were so important and revolutionary at the time that they were kept is a military secret. Using his formulae one could simplify the optimisation of 3 dimensional problems dramatically as well as send accurate representations of objects to allies (depictions of fortifications were particularly useful at the time, being the Napleonic era). This book was first published in 1795 as a series of lectures. The internal scholia indicate that it is a second edition. It includes all 3 projections. Monge was a fervent supporter of the revolution and intellectual rigour. He later led the production of the Description de l'Égypte, wherein the accuracy of many of the depictions is testimony to his methods. Current applications of his breakthrough are numerous — 3d films use his techniques of representation, the calculation of stresses on surfaces and accurate architectural modelling follow from the ideas contained in these, his early lectures.

      HMSO, London 1801 - [Rickman, John (1771-1840).] Abstract of the answers and returns made pursuant to an act, passed in the forty-first year of His Majesty King George III. Intituled, "An act for taking an account of the population of Great Britain, and the increase or diminution thereof." 2 vols. in 3, folio.

Very good set apart from some soiling in Vol. I, part 2. Engraved armorial bookplate of Tory politician John Pollexfen Bastard (1756-1816) in two of the three volumes. First Edition of the First English Census. Rickman, a British government official and statistician, drafted the bill that became the 1800 Census Act, which established for the first time a national decennial census of Britain's general population. Rickman had been arguing for a national census since at least 1798, claiming that it would provide essential information to Britain's political, military and industrial leaders-as well as giving a stimulus to the life insurance business! His arguments were given an additional boost with the publication of Malthus's Essay on the Principle of Population (1798), which spurred concerns about Britain's population and helped to break down resistance to the idea of compiling national population statistics. After the Census Bill passed Rickman helped to carry out the first four British censuses, which included not only a population count but also the collection and analysis of parish register returns.

        Versuche den Galvanismus zur Heilung einiger Krankheiten anzuwenden.

      Berlin, Myliussischen Buchhandlung, 1801, Kl.8, 256 pp., 2 gefalt. Kupferstichtafel, mit Deckblatt der original Broschur im Pappband der Zeit schönes Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe! Ausgehend von den Versuchen seines Freundes Alexander von Humboldt unternahm Carl Johann Grapengiesser (1773-1813) aus Parchim, war Mitglied des Colegiums Med.-Chirurgicum., Leibarzt des Kronprinzen und konsultierender Arzt des Königs von Preussen, zahlreiche Versuche, um die Heilkraft der Elektrizität zu untermauern. Große Erfolge erzielte er dabei insbesondere bei Amaurose, Taubheit, Lähmungen u.a. Er starb als Chefarzt eines Kriegslazaretts an Typhus. First Edition - fine and well preserved copy , with the original Front wrapper bound in. "Grapengiesser was the first physician to use Volta"s "pile", the first battery, which Volta first described in print in 1800. Grapengiesser "noted that in paralyzed muscle excitability could be so poor that 150 elements were necessary to produce contraction. He placed conductors on moistened skin and found by trial and error that the best results were obtained with the zinc pole placed over the nerve trunk and the other pole over the branches of the nerve. He also noted that contraction occurred on the make and break of the circuit" Licht, History of Electrotherapy Grapengiesser was physician to the Crown Prince of Prussia, and he had intended to write a general history of Galvanism. Upon learning that Augustin had embarked on a similar project, he decided to confine to his own experiments on the application of electric currents to the treatment of disease. During the campaign against Napoleon, Grappengiesser caught typhus and he died all to young in 1813.

        Abbildungen des menschlichen Auges.

      Frankfurt am Mai, bei Varentrapp und Wenner, 1801, Folio, X, 110 pp., 16 Kupferstichtafeln, davon 8 Umrisstafeln, im feinen Halbledereinband der Zeit: St.a. Tit., die ersten und letzten Seiten etwas fleckig. First Edition of this important Milestone of Ophthalmology! Samuel Thomas Soemmerring (1755-1830) "is best remembered for his fine anatomical illustrations, of which those devoted to the human eye are a good example".Ludwig Choulant declared this book "Soemmerring's most perfect work" which with Zinn's monograph formed the basis for all modern research on the structure of the eye."Soemmering explains in the preface to his book (1801) that the "Abbildungen des menschlichen Auges" originated from drawings which he himself had made from anatomical preparations or he had made the first sketches which then had been elaborated on. He declares that he did not spare time nor effort nor cost in order to produce these anatomical illustrations which should enable one to obtain a more correct and more precise picture of the natural and healthy structures of the eye. This should be of benefit when investigating the function of the eye as well as for the treatment of eye diseases. I first thought this to be more of a hobby but then I had the advantage of getting access to a number of human corpses and the cooperation of the excellent artist Chr. Koeck who could follow my ideas in a splendid way. My teaching obligations gave me a certain amount of free time and I was supported by many encouraging friends. Each plate shows the illustration in lines to which letters and numbers are attached explaining the various structures. Another illustration is then reproduced in various shades of white and black. The first plate illustrates the healthy living eye. "The eye of a man is in general round, thick and strong the eye of a woman is more elongated, flat, gentle, thin and pleasant." The conjunctiva of a Negro is never as white, clear and transparent as that of a European the iris is so dark brown that at a certain distance it can hardly be distinguished from the pupil. In the eye of an albino the iris seems to be discontinuous so that the red color of the fundus can be seen not only through the pupil but also through these tissue defects. The eyes of albinos were in constant movement and even the iris made quicker than normal motions. During sleep the lids are closed in such a fashion that the upper lid is farther downward on the temporal side than nasally the eye is somewhat rolled upward and the lower lid usually keeps its skin fold the lashes cross each other. The second plate illustrates the lids, the muscles, the nerves (as they have never been shown previously), the arteries and veins and the lacrimal apparatus. The third and fourth plates show the extraocular muscles with their nerves and blood vessels. The fifth plate shows the details of the interior of the eye. "I probably would never have noticed the central hole in the retina had I not had the chance to examine the eyes of a young man who had recently drowned." - "In the center of the retina is a very conspicuous round hole with a golden yellow margin around which blood vessels form a beautiful wreath." (Compare 723, Buzzi, 1782.) - "I shall skip the differences between a hyperopic and a myopic eye". - The four main branches of the central vein are correctly illustrated, the corresponding arteries are still somewhat incompletely sketched. The seventh plate shows the orbit and the eighth the profile of the eye seen from the left it also shows a vertical cross section through the closed lids, the eyeball and the orbit. It has been reproduced often in various books on ophthalmology." F.C.Blodi/ Hirschberg 464Garrison & Morton No.1489 Hirschberg 464 Becker Collection Nr.348

        Stammbuch or Friendship Book of Julius Richter. Meissen / Dresden. 1801-1842.

      [ALBUM AMICORUM] RICHTER, Julius. Stammbuch or Friendship Book of Julius Richter. Meissen / Dresden. 1801-1842. Landscape format, approx 120mm x 205mm. Pale blue silk covered box worn, some staining, with gilt floral decoration containing over 50 items including a folded watercolour and poem, 2 delicate watercolours of roses, a pencil sketch, a lock of hair and ribbon in a fold of paper, letters, inscriptions and poems. A fine collection of personal messages and thoughts. Called an Album Amicorum (Book of Friends) or Stammbuch (Friendship book), these books were popular with students in Germany and Central Europe through until the mid 19th century. The examples that we have had previously used small decorated boxes imitating a bound volume ( as in this example) instead of an album, and usually in an oblong format. This is the largest example of this type that we have handled. There are numerous entries of pupils and teachers of the Royal Saxon Landesschule Sankt Afra in Meissen, including (Friedrich) Maxim. Oertel (an historian in St. Afra) and Karl Justis Wilhelm Kreyssig (Latin professor in St. Afra). Most entries are dated St. Afra 1822-29. Some inscribers recall the common "brotherhood", which may be a precursor of the student association "Leipziger Landsmannschaft Afrania", founded in 1839. In addition there are some earlier entries from Meissen and Pforta, dated 1801-1804. Among the letters there is one from Richter's father ("Richter / an der Liecke", with the title "Lieber Julius!"), also a humorous 3 page poem "Der Berliner Ballonhandler".

"Errori", engraved frontis. portrait *) and three fine engraved plates, rebacked gold tooled contemp halfleather binding extra strong paper, very fine copy. First edition of the first textbook on the subject to be published in the Italian language Antonio Scarpa (1752-1832) has been called "the father of Italian ophthalmology." "In this work Scarpa first described the operation of iridodialysis. The chapters on diseases of the vessels in the eye, on cataract, and on staphyloma are particularly noteworthy. Scarpa's books were all superbly illustrated with his own drawings and the plates in this work, engraved by Faustino Anderloni, bear witness to Scarpa's artistic talent. Duke-Elder considered this the greatest work on ophthalmology that had appeared up to its time." Becker Garrison considered Scarpa's illustrations to be the "crown and flower of achievement in anatomic pen-drawing." Scarpa "himself trained the famous Faustino Anderloni ( become the engraver of his illustrations. The latter's brother, Pietro Anderloni, assisted Faustino in the beginning.

        The Persian Moonshee

      Jan 01, 1801. Leather Bound. Good. London: Published by Oriental Press by Wilson and Co., 1801. By Francis Gladwin, ESQ. (300 × 230 mm). Rebound Late 19th-century brown leather, raised bands to spine with 6 ropework fillets gilt, Folding verb table. Contents lightly toned with occasional faint spotting as usual, tan-burn to endpapers from turn-ins, A very good copy. London edition of Gladwin's Persian grammar, Part II comprises a series of illustrative ""Hikayati Luteef"" (""sweet stories""), with Part III, ""Phrases and dialogues in Persian and English"", excised for this edition. The ""Moonshee"" (from the Persian ""munshi"", an honorific given to skilled linguists and clerks) was first published in Calcutta in 1795. ""The most frequently published author in late eighteenth-century Calcutta, Gladwin was responsible for dictionaries and vocabularies, translations of Persian histories, collections of stories and revenue accounts, treatises on medicine and rhetoric, and a Persian version of an abridgement of the biblical history None of this activity is likely to have been lucrative. Gladwin confessed to spending heavily in acquiring manuscripts. Publication costs in India were notoriously high and the market was very restricted. Success depended largely on the willingness of the East India Company to purchase multiple copies"" (ODNB).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Cotta").

      Baden, 29. VII. 1801. - 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to. Von der Forschung vermisstes Schreiben an den (nicht namentlich genannten) österreichischen Staatskanzler Fürst Metternich, der wegen kritischer Artikel mit dem Verbot von Cottas "Allgemeiner Zeitung" gedroht hatte: "Euer Durchlaucht huldvolles Schreiben v. 13ten dieß. ist mir erst hier bei der Rückkehr von einer Geschäftsreise nach Mainz zugekommen und ich bitte daher die Verspätung meiner Antwort gnädigst zu entschuldigen. Was Euer Durchlaucht über die große Kriegs- und Friedensfrage und daß die Österreichische Regierung an der Spize der Friedeliebenden stehe - mir in diesem Schreiben zu eröffnen geruhten, ist längst meine Überzeugung und muß auch die eines Jeden seyn, der mit unbefangenem Blick die Welt-Ereigniße beobachtet und die politische und diplomatische Handlungsweise von Höchstdenselben daraus zu entnemen weiß - er kan nur Euer Durchlaucht umsichtigen, klugen, festen und kräftigen Leitung in so schwierigen Zeiten voll Bewunderung zollen. Indem ich zu diesen gehöre, darf ich dieß auch vom Redacteur der Allgemeinen Zeitung [Karl Joseph Stegmann] versichern, und daß er in dem vorliegenden Falle auf keine Weise anstossen wollte, ist nicht zu bezweifeln, auch glaubt er dieß durch Aufnahme des Artikels im Österreichischen Beobachter mit seinem Zusaze bewiesen zu haben. Inzwischen habe ich ihm sogleich das Erforderliche mitgetheilt und er wird diesen so wie jeden Wink, den Euer Durchlaucht uns wollen zukommen lassen, gewiß aufs sorgfältigste beachten. - Höchstdieselbe sind, wie ich hoffe, von diesen unseren Gesinnungen überzeugt, Sie besizen Selbst in der neuesten Zeit die Belege davon, indem die Ungarischen Komitatsadressen zurückgehalten wurden, unerachtet dieß dem Institute zum Nachtheil gereichte und zum Vorwurf gemacht wurde. Von etwas früherer Zeit will ich mir nur erlauben, den gänzlichen Ausschluß des fameusen Hormayers anzuführen, der mich dagegen überall, selbst bei Euer Durchlaucht, zu verläumden sucht. So sehr ich die Warnung gegen diesen Menschen, so sehr ich jeden Wink, den mir Euer Durchlaucht wollen zukommen lassen, mit dem wärmsten, unterthänigsten Dank erkenne, so sehr bedaure ich aber, daß ich ich nicht wenigstens durch [Josef Anton] Pilat, öfters dergleichen erhalte. Denn die Redaction der Allgemeinen Zeitung wird zuverlässig Alles, was mit dem Zweck und Bestehen dieses Instituts nur vereinbar ist, gerne beachten. Euer Durchlaucht werden also auch mit mir die Überzeugung theilen, daß unsre Zeit auch für ein solches Institut eine kritische ist, und daß viele Klugheit und Umsicht dazu gehört, demselben seinen Charakter der Wahrheit, Unpartheilichkeit und Allgemeinheit zu erhalten, das Möglichste dabei zu beachten und doch eine eine gewichtige Stimme für die öffentliche Meinung demselben zu erhalten [.]". - Nachdem sich Metternich bereits Ende 1828 bei Cotta über österreichkritische Artikel in der "Allgemeinen Zeitung" beschwert hatte (wofür sich der Herausgeber am 17. 12. 1828 brieflich entschuldigte), wandte sich der Staatskanzler im Sommer 1831 erneut an Cotta. Mit Schreiben vom 13. Juli beschuldigte er ihn, "sich nicht um die inhaltliche Tendenz, sondern nur um den wirtschaftlichen Erfolg der Zeitung zu kümmern, und drohte wiederum mit dem Verbot der AZ in Österreich, sollte sich die Zeitung nicht dazu bereit finden, ausschließlich österreichfreundliche Artikel zu drucken. Ursachen für den neuerlichen Verweis waren Artikel, die Metternichs Meinung nach 'falsche Ansichten über die friedlichen Zwecke der österreichischen Politik' verbreiteten" (M. Breil, Die Augsburger "Allgemeine Zeitung" und die Pressepolitik Bayerns [Tübingen 1996], S. 175). Während die Forschung noch unlängst konstatieren musste, eine "Entgegnung Johann Friedrich Cottas hierauf oder eine Reaktion der Redaktion [sei] nicht erhalten" (ebda.), bildet der vorliegende Brief unzweifelhaft diese vermisste Entgegnung. - Alte Faltspuren; von tadelloser Erhaltung.

Bouillé was a French general who served in the West Indies and distinguished himself as a commander of French forces in the American Revolution; he was the cousin of La Fayette. He was also Lieutenant-General of the Royal forces in the days of the French Revolution, and remained loyal to the King, playing a major role in the plan for Louis XVI's escape which ended in the King's arrest at Varennes. Bouillé escaped to England where he supported the royalist cause, and where he died in 1800.These Memoires were first published in London in 1794 in translation; they were then re-translated from the English into French and published there in 1798.

"the earliest expedition made by a white man in this direction. His investigations, although pursued at so early a period of Arctic exploration, were remarkable for their accuracy; Sir John Franklin more than once expressed his surprise at being able to corroborate their correctness in his own explorations. Some Indian vocabularies are included. (Sabin). Mackenzie's journals recount his two expeditions undertaken on behalf of the North West Company in their attempt to break the Hudson's Bay Company's monopoly of the fur trade. The first expedition, in 1879, from Fort Chipewyan on Lake Athabaska down what is now known as the Mackenzie River to the Arctic constitutes the first trip to the Arctic from the Canadian Prairies. The second, in 1792-93, from Fort Chipewyan over the Rocky Mountains by the Peace and Fraser Rivers to the Pacific, is distinguished as the first overland expedition to reach the Pacific, north of Mexico. The maps are the earliest of certain parts of Canada. Also included is a lengthy account of the development of the fur trade in the North West, generally attributed to the author's cousin, Roderick Mackenzie. .

        Autograph letter signed.

      St. George, Revel Bay [Gulf of Finland], 15. V. 1801. - 4to. 1 p. With fly-leaf bearing address in his handwriting, and his seal (head of Lady Hamilton). Fine autograph letter to "Lady Hamilton, 23 Piccadilly, London". An important letter written when Nelson was Commander-in-Chief in the Baltic, six weeks after the Battle of Copenhagen. The political situation was complicated in that the Russians, while not now openly hostile, were definitely unfriendly. The cold air of the northern latitudes disagreed with Nelson, who had a severe cough and chill, and he was depressed at the separation from Lady Hamilton and concerned about their baby daughter Horatia, who had been born in January. The letter is discreet, evidently because of Nelson's fear that it might fall into other hands, and he employs the deception previously arranged with Lady Hamilton of referring to himself as "Thomson". The tone of the letter is melancholy, and Nelson concludes by quoting the last portion of an equally unhappy letter he had written recently to the First Lord of the Admiralty Lord St. Vincent: "My Dearest Friend, / The Harpy Brig sails tomorrow for England, you will not receive this Line for a fortnight after her arrival. I cannot say a word on Politicks. I expect to find a new Admiral on my return which will be in a very few days, poor Thomson is return'd from Petersburgh he desires his kindest affections to his Wife and familiy [i. e. to Emma Hamilton herself and Horatia] - And ever believe me Your Most attach'd & affectionate / Nelson & Bronte. / Most probably you will never receive this letter I have 3 wrote for you now laying by me, firm as a Rock, finish of 8 lines to Lrd. St. V[incent]. I expect to find a new Ad[mira]l when I return off Bornholm, or most probably you will never see again aff[ectiona]te / N & B".

        VOYAGES PHYSIQUES ET LYTHOLOGIQUES DANS LA CAMPANIE suivis d'un mémoire sur la constitution physique de Rome. par Scipion Breislak, traduite du manuscrit italien. par le général Pommereuil

      - Paris, Dentu, An IX (1801). 2 tomes reliés en 2 vol. in-8: 13 x 20.5 cm, I/ Faux-titre, titre, XVI pp. d'introduction, 1 carte dép., 300 pp. de textes et tables, 1 carte dép. p. 122, 1 pl. dép. p. 283; II/Faux-titre, titre, 323 pp. de texte et index, [1] f. de table, 1 carte dép. p. 18, 1 pl. dép. p. 88, 1 plan dép. p. 241. Édition originale française. Ouvrage complet des 3 cartes, 2 planches et 1 plan gravés d'après Miller par Tardieu ou Thuillier en suivant les dessins et relevés de Breislak: Carte physique de la Campanie; Carte du Vésuve, Planche avec morceau de laiton, Carte des cratères éteints entre Naples et Cumes, Fontaine de la fumerole à Pouzzoles, Plan Physique de la ville de Rome. Très élégantes reliures en basane glacée. Dos lisses avec pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin vert, décors à la grotesque en doré. Roulettes encadrant les plats, roulettes intérieurs et sur les coupes. Tranches dorées, contregardes de papier bleu. Ex-Libris: Jean-Louis Rivier. Exemplaires en parfait état, très propres. Ce voyage, écrit en Italien, avait déjà été édité à Florence (en 1798), mais en l'absence de l'auteur. Cette traduction est évidemment préférable car Breislak a non seulement supervisé l'édition mais l'a également enrichie de nouveau aperçus et de résultats d'observations plus récentes. Cet ouvrage est donc essentiellement consacré à l'observation des éléments géologiques, notamment en lien avec les volcans de la région Napolitaine. Dans la seconde partie de l'ouvrage, Breislak exécute un examen approfondi de la constitution physique du terrain de Rome qui l'amène à établir quatre périodes géologiques (grande mer, abondance d'alluvions, eaux stagnantes, volcanique). (Voir: Brunet, 2e éd., 1814, no. 11140; "Biblio. universelle des voyages", Paris, 1808, Tome 3, pp. 34-37; "Journal général de la litt. de France", 1801, p. 75; "Journal de physique.", tome LII, 1801, pp. 469-472) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Neue auf Vernunft und Erfahrung gegründete Entdeckungen über die Sprache der Thiere.

      8. Gest. Frontisp., 216 S. Broschürt, Buchblock geheftet, Rücken fehlt großteils, Heftung gelockert. Buchblock unbeschnitten, Blätter staubrandig, sonst fast weiß u. fleckenlos. GV 155,418. Vgl. Wurzbach 55,13ff. (Ausg. Wien 1801) - W. (1754-1809), seit 1800 Professor für Philosophie u. Geschichte am k.k. Lyzeum in Linz, war als "... pädagogischer u. philosophischer Schriftsteller ungemein tätig", lt. Wurzbach war er "... der erste selbständige philosophische Schriftsteller in Österreich ... er schrieb leicht, faßlich und gut." Besonders hebt Wurzbach seine "Beiträge zur Thierseelenkunde" hervor "... welche eine scharfe Beobachtungsgabe verrathen und uns Einblicke in das Leben und die Fähigkeiten jener Wesen eröffnen, die ... doch am wenigsten beobachtet werden, so sehr auch sie Beobachtung verdienen". Wodurch W. auch als Vorläufer der Verhaltensforschung anzusehen ist.
