        Erotika Biblion . Nouvelle édition, corrigée sur un exemplaire revu par l'Auteur.

      Vatar-Jouannet, 'chez tous les marchands de nouveautés', 'An IX',, Paris 1801 - Written in prison and first published in 1783, Mirabeau's learned but witty treatise on the varieties of sexuality in antiquity was immediately banned and issued in very few copies (traditionally only 14). Later editions continued to provoke the censor and are also rare. In this Paris edition, a near-contemporary reader has inserted notes on the early publication of the text, the opinion that Mirabeau presents 'des tableaux plus licentieux que ceux de l'Aretin', and Greek transliterations of chapter headings, with definitions.Pia's A-342 conforms to this edition, save for the spelling of the first word of the title. Pia gives 'Errotika' as in all previous editions, while ours reads 'Erotika'. This may therefore be Pia's error, and may also suggest ours is the first edition to bear the modernised title spelling customary in all later editions. 12mo (128 × 80 mm), pp. iv, 248, plus engraved portrait. 8 blank leaves loosely inserted at several points at an early date, some bearing contemporary manuscript notes, one further small annotation (Hebrew characters). Contemporary sprinkled vellum. Becoming loose towards the rear, but secure, lower joint cracked. [Gay I, 150-155 (still the best explanation of the text).] [Attributes: First Edition]

        Recueil et parallele des edifices de tout genre, anciens et modernes: remarquables par leur beaute, par leur grandeur ou par leur singularite, et dessines sur une meme echelle 2 volume set

      Paris : Auteur, An IX 1801 - 2 volume set. Folio. Engraved title, 90 double-page engraved architectural plates. Modern 1/2 black leather over marbled boards, raised bands, leather spine labels. House in custom blue cloth clam shell case. All pages linen backed. Marginal loss to title, table and first 4 plates. Restoration to title page, following pages and several pages. Soiling to plates, heavy soiling to the first few plates of Volume I, offsetting and foxing to plates. An important work in the history of architecture. First edition of the "first survey of world architecture based on building types" - RIBA. "Durand's lasting contribution is the separation of architecture from its traditional association with nature and with style." Durand "was the first architectural theoretician to clarify architectural objects by their common formal characteristics - to establish a rational science of design through standardization of functional topology. In the Recueil, Durand totally overturns the traditional relation between architecture and nature in favor of abstraction based on a scientific method of classification by type. His concept of architecture is in perfect agreement with the prevailing political philosophy and its emphasis on utility." (Millard 174-75) Brunet II, 904; British Architectural Library 956. Millard, French 67. Mongland V, cols 349-353 (list of plates). BMC VII, 961.887. This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.

        Mémoire historique sur la vie et les écrits de Horace Bénédict de Saussure, pour servir d'introduction à la lecture de ses ouvrages. Lu à la Société de physique et d'histoire naturelle de Genève, le 23 Prairial an VIII (1800).

      Genève, (Luc Sestié for) J.J. Paschoud, Libraire, IX, (1801), - in-8vo, 219 p., entièrement non rogné, légères rousseurs sur les tranches et couverture, brochure grise d?attente. Première édition. Le grand naturaliste et géologue suisse était mort dans sa propriété de Conches le 22 janvier 1799. Cet éloge a été donné par le littérateur genevois Jean Senebier [1742-1809], l'un des plus illustres savants de son pays et de son temps. "Doué d'une intelligence vive, d'une mémoire tenace, assidu au travail et se délassant de l'étude par l'étude même, Senebier s'appliqua avec un zèle égal à des recherches fort différentes ; on le vit passer sans effort comme sans lassitude de la théologie à la botanique, du classement des livres à l'observation microscopique, de la physique à l'histoire. Chacun de ses travaux dénote de l'exactitude, de la méthode, un talent sérieux et réfléchi". Cf. Hoefer. Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl.

To which is added, Advice to the Prelates and Legislators, how to correct the immorality and Jacobinism of the present age, and at the same time increase the revenue. Advice to the lovely Cyprians, and to the fair sex in general ... On matrimony, compulsive wedlock, and on polygamy. On the misery of female prostitution. The history of the lovely Aegyptia, the Pamela of Norwood, and paragon of the Aegyptian race; the author's marriage with her, and her cruel infidelity and elopement with a travelling tinker. And a history of the King's Bench Prison, written by the author during his custody under the Marshal of that prison, descriptive of the miseries endured by the prisoners, and the extravagant expence incident to their confinement.

      London, J. Debrett, 1801. Two vols, 8vo, one engraving in the text, (4) + 339 + (1) and (2) + 475 + (1)pp., including the half-title in vol.I, but without the 4pp. of publisher's advertisements at the end of vol.II, in a plain, early 20th century cloth binding, spine simply lettered in gilt. A good copy. First edition. Sabin 30227. Howes H.158. An extraordinary book purporting to be the autobiography of this late 18th century eccentric. Following the disbandment of Tarleton's Light Dragoons in 1783, Hanger was placed on half pay. 'Owing to the embarrassment of his affairs Hanger was an inmate of the King's Bench Prison from 2 June 1798 to April 1799, and in 1800 he set up as a coal merchant. 'A beau and clubman—in both senses—who affected the manners of the French court, Hanger assisted Tarleton with his faro bank at Daubigney's Tavern, London, lounging at the entrance with a huge rattan he called ‘the Infant'. He became one of the dissipated companions of the prince of Wales, indulging in gambling, racing, and pugilism. In 1787 he and Tarleton organized ‘bludgeon men' for the whigs at the Westminster by-election. In November 1791 he was appointed equerry to the prince of Wales. In August 1797, in litigation against his elder brother William, third Baron Coleraine, he wrote to the prince begging a loan of £100. His critics considered him among the dregs of society. He was much mentioned in contemporary memoirs and was caricatured by Gillray, Rowlandson, Dighton, and Cruikshank.' [Stuart Reid in ODNB]. In 1801 William Combe compiled from Hanger's papers and suggestions The Life, Adventures and Opinions of Colonel George Hanger, written by himself>, &c. On the second page of this unsavoury book is a portrait of Hanger, with cocked hat and sword, suspended on a gibbet. Hanger's curiously accurate prophecy that 'one of these days the northern and southern powers (of the States) will fight as vigorously against each other as they both have united to do against the British', will be found in vol.II (p.427).'

To this Edition is Added, a Concise History of the Reformation in Ireland; and Considerations on the Means of Extending its Advantages Therein.

      Dublin: Printed by Robert Marchbank, for John Milliken [etc.], 1801.. SECOND EDITION. Quarto, pp.[2] x, 636; 210 [10]. With 10 folding maps and plans. Also with a large section of appedixes and an unpaginated index. In contemporary tan full calf, recently re-backed with the original boards, and the original spine leather pasted over. Raised bands and gilt titles and decoration to spine. Gilt ruling and dentelle to fore-edges; marbled endpapers. Bookplate of the Hope Trust, 31 Moray Place, Edinburgh, to front pastedown. Internally fine, with a small shelfmark to the base of the spine, and some wear to edges, especially corners. Very good overall. Written by the otherwise unremarkable borderline-sociopath MP for Lismore, this extensive partisan history of Irish rebellions claims a significant place in the development of increasingly entrenched sectarianism in nineteenth century Ireland. The book went through several editions in its first year of publication, 1801 (also the year of the Act of Union between Great Britain and Ireland), was highly regarded by the Protestant Unionist party in the years immediately after, and even earned the author an invitation to a duel from a fellow Irish MP.

      Chez Migneret, Et à l'ancienne Librairie de Dupont 1801 - Troisième édition revue et corrigée, 1 vol. in-18 reliure de l'époque demi-basane marbré, dos lisse orné à décors de lampe antique, Chez Migneret, Et à l'ancienne Librairie de Dupont, Paris, An IX (1801), xxiv-207 pp. Dans cette rare troisième édition, Chateaubriand a inséré un "Avis sur la présente édition", une "Lettre publiée dans le Journal des Débats et dans le Publiciste" et une longue Préface. Par comparaison avec notre autre exemplaire de la troisième édition, on peut apercevoir qu'au sein d'une même édition des modifications typographiques ou de fond ont été apportées. Ainsi, dès la page "vi", cet exemplaire contient le texte suivant : "C'est sur la dernière phrase de cette apostrophe, que tombe la remarque du critique" ; dans l'autre version, on peut lire : "C'est la dernière phrase de cette apostrophe, qui a excité la gaîté de la Décade". Des modifications typographiques (dans une citation en grec, ou dans la pagination des premiers feuillets), il semble ressortir nettement que la présente version de la troisième édition est antérieure à celle de l'autre exemplaire. Bon état (coins frottés, le douzième cahier a été relié entre les cahiers 9 et 10) pour cet exemplaire en stricte reliure du temps de cette importante édition, qui révèle l'attention permanente que Chateaubriand portait au polissage de son oeuvre.

        The Punishments of China, Illustrated by Twenty-Two Engravings: with Explanations in English and French.

      Folio. London: printed for William Miller...by W. Bulmer and Co..., 1801. Folio, [vi], Frontispiece and 21 hand-colored stipple engravings each with a single leaf of text printed on both sides in English and French. Full red straight-grain morocco, with roll-tooled panels in gilt and blind. Backstrip with gilt decorations and lettering, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Boards are somewhat rubbed at the edges, backstrip somewhat sun-toned, some smudges and finger marks to several leaves, plates are bright; very good. First edition, later printing with some leaves watermarked 1817, engravings are by Dadley for W. Miller. This work describes, in gruesome detail, the forms of punishments for numerous crimes committed in China. Each plate illustrates one type of punishment, ranging in severity, from the milder "Conducting an Offender into Banishment" to the more violent, "Hamstringing a Malefactor." The accompanying text, in both English and French, explains the details of how the punishments are delivered. While the methods are clearly barbaric by today's standards, Mason's book, along with the translation of the Qing penal code in 1810, created growing anxiety in Western countries over the perceived severity of Chinese standards for criminal justice.

      Dublin: Printed by Robert Marchbank, for John Milliken [etc.], 1801.. SECOND EDITION. Quarto, pp.[2] x, 636; 210 [10]. With 10 folding maps and plans.

        Synoptic tables of chemistry, intended to serve as a summary of the lectures delivered on that science in the public schools at Paris

      London: T. Cadell & W. Davies, 1801. First English edition. Calf-backed marbled boards; some light marginal spotting, small tear on first two leaves repaired, text unaffected, small stamp (discarded) from the Academy of Natural Sciences on title. Overall in excellent condition. First English edition of this scarce and handsome set of Fourcroy's chemistry tables. The present work was translated by William Nicholson from the original French (Tableaux Synoptiques de Chimie, 1800), the first set of chemical synoptic tables ever published. The author intended for it to accompany his collected lectures and chief work, Systême des connaissances chimiques (1800), which Ferguson considers "the best account of the state of the science at the time." While the extensive Systême des connaissances chimiques was written for the advanced scholar, Fourcroy felt the succinct large-format tables would summarize and clearly demonstrate the basic principles and relationships of chemistry for all students. They were originally created as teaching aids to be split up and posted on the wall of a laboratory or classroom, which likely contributed to the current rarity of complete sets. Fourcroy (1755-1809), noted French chemist and professor at the Jardin des Plantes, École Polytechnique, and the École de Médicine, was a dedicated teacher whose celebrated lectures were renowned for their completeness, clarity, and brilliant delivery. He joined with Lavoisier, Guyton de Morveau, and Berthollet in revising chemical nomenclature, which is reflected in this work. Nicholson (1753-1815), an English chemist, was a follower of Fourcroy's antiphlogistic theory, and translated many of his works into English including Élemens d'Histoire naturelle et de Chimie (1782), Essai sur le Phlogistique (1788), and later Systême des connaissances chimiques (1804).
