        The Principles of Free-Masonry Delineated [BOUND WITH] A Masonic Key, with An Elucidation on the Religious and Moral Beauties of Freemasonry

      Exeter/Canterbury: R. Trewman/ W. Bristow, 1801. First edition. Hardcover. g- to g. Duodecimo. 3/4 burgundy leather over green marbled paper boards. Gilt ruling and letters on the spine with raised bands. The book contains two scarce Masonic titles, bound in one volume. "The Principles of Free-Masonry Delineated". (xxiii) 256pp. Engraved frontispiece with the seal of the Union Lodge Exeter, and another seal reading "Quamvis Velata Veritas" (Truth although veiled), pasted on at the interior front cover. Includes a list of subscribers and an errata page. This publication which was sanctioned under the auspices of the Charles Bampfylde, the Provincial Grand Master of Devonshire, is a guide through the rules, rituals, principles and symbols of Freemasonry, for those in the process of being initiated. The concluding section of the work contains a "Collection of Anthems, Odes and Songs on Masonry". Frontispiece with some tears and a small hole. Some water staining, soiling and rippling to the title page through the first 10 pages, with some continued staining throughout. "A Masonic Key, with An Elucidation on the Religious and Moral Beauties of Freemasonry". 92pp. Lacking the engraved frontispiece. Dedicated to William Perfect, Provincial Grand Master for the County of Kent, the work is part of a group of works known that have come to be known as "The Lectures" and was based on William Finch's lectures (catechism) concerning the rituals of the organization. The work contains extensive text in cipher, of his own design (including on the title page), and as a result can be difficult to comprehend. A second expanded edition was published the following year, in 1802, under the title "A Masonic Treatise". The work was supposedly condemned by the Grand Lodge due to "mystical content", while others claim he was expelled for the mere fact that he published Masonic content of his own accord, and thus the work has never been reprinted since. To date, no fully decoded transcription of the text has been ever published, although H. C. Levander published a key to decode the text in Freemasons Magazine and Review, in 1859*. Those to whom the title is known, consider it an important work in the history and development of the English Masonic tradition. Scarce. OCLC lists only 3 copies worldwide. The subtitle of the book contains a few terms in cipher, which have period decoded translations underneath in ink. The work has been cut to size along the top and right edges, often cutting off the pagination at the top, and occasionally cutting off text at the right margin. Some damp staining, light soiling, light chipping and/or closed tears to a few pages. Small hole on the title page. Some rubbing to extremities, along edges and at the spine. Scratches to the paper boards. Book block tight. Binding in good, interior in good- to good condition overall. *masonicencyclopedia.com.

        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]

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.

"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. .

        Edwy and Elgiva; A Tragedy, in Five Acts. Performed at the New Theatre

      Philadelphia: Published by Asbury Dickins . . . H. Maxwell, Printer, 1801, 1801. First edition. American Bibliography 700; Hill, American Plays, 144. 8vo, modern blue paper wrappers, stitched, 84 pages. Half-title present. The first book by Charles Jared Ingersoll (1782-1862), a Philadelphian who later became a prominent congressman and lawyer. Edwy and Elgiva was successfully performed at Philadelphia's Chestnut Street Theater in April, 1801, when Ingersoll was just 19 years old. The plot is an adaptation of the well known tale of a 10th century English monarch, Edwy, who marries his relative Elgiva - a story which was also successfully adapted for the stage by Fanny Burney. Though Ingersoll soon after entered the bar and politics, he remained close to the Port Folio crowd and in 1810 anonymously published the interesting satire Inchquin, the Jesuit's Letters, During a Late Residence in the United States of America.

"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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[iv], 192 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/4"). Original publisher wrappers, untrimmed edges, unopened signatures. A few minor stains, spine abraded and worn though at ends. Light toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, internally clean. $750. * Only edition. An interesting work of comparative criminal law from the Consulate period that compares ideas of proportionality in the punishment of criminals according to Roman, French and English law. Sarreste outlines a history of debates concerning sentencing around the time of the French Revolution, drawing on contemporary debates in Great Britain and the work of writers like Beccaria and Blackstone. He discusses the nature of punishment, acts that may be classified as crimes, areas in which civil and criminal law overlap and the circumstances that establish criminal liability. He goes on to examine the penalties in England and France for various categories of crime, noting, to cite two examples, the severity of the death penalty for fraud in Great Britain and the absurdity of treating rape differently according to the age of the victim in France.

      Circa 1801.

Note ut. Sur les "Sauvages de l'Amerique septentrionale". In 1801 the famous French navigator, Admiral Louis-Antoine Bougainville, presented a paper to theInstitut national des Sciences et des Artswhich was published inMémoires de l'Institut national des Sciences et des Arts - Sciences et politiques, tome 3, Paris, mai 1801 (pp 322-346), as Notice historique sur les sauvages de l'Amérique Septentrionale par le citoyen Bougainville, lue le 7 thermidor an 7. However, the content of the present short note concerning the custom of avenging homicide is not referred to in Bougainville's published paper. Bougainville's note reads: "Si un Sauvage est tué par un autre, le plus proche parent venge le mort. Le tueur connait son sort ; ses parens et amis lui marquent le plis vif intérest, ne le quittent plus. Le parent va seul pleurer dans les lieux les plus solitaires le triste ministère auquel il ne peut se soustraire. Puis il prend son tems pour tuer, à l'improviste s'il peut, la victime düe à la vengeance publique".

        Jefferson’s Response to the New Haven Merchants’ Remonstrance, and his First Inaugural Address

      New York 1801 - Pamphlet. An Examination of The President's Reply to the New-Haven Remonstrance; with the President's Inaugural Speech, The Remonstrance and Reply a List of Removals from Office and New Appointments. 1801. New York: George F. Hopkins. FIRST EDITION. Octavo. 69pp. "Of the various Executive duties, no one excites more anxious concern than that of placing the interests of our fellow citizens in the hands of honest men, with understandings sufficient for their station.In the case of Samuel Bishop however, the subject of your remonstrance, time was taken, information was sought, and such obtained as could leave no room for doubt of his fitness. From private sources it was learnt that his understanding was sound, his integrity pure, his character unstained .The will of the nation, manifested by their various elections, calls for an administration of government according with the opinions of those elected; if, for the fulfilment of that will, displacements are necessary, with whom can they so justly begin as with persons appointed in the last moments of an administration, not for it's own aid, but to begin a career at the same time with their successors, by whom they had never been approved, and who could scarcely expect from them a cordial cooperation? .I lament sincerely that unessential differences of opinion should ever have been deemed sufficient to interdict half the society from the rights & the blessings of self-government; to proscribe them asunworthy of every trust. It would have been to me a circumstance of great relief had I found a moderate participation of office in the hands of the Majority. I would gladly have left to time & accident to raise them to their just share, but their total exclusion calls for prompter correctives."Historical BackgroundJefferson's ascension to the presidency in 1801 marked the first time in American history that power was transferred from one political party to another. The peaceful transition removed fears of a counterrevolution, a welcome reassurance after the rancorous, drawn-out election of 1800. Jefferson's first "Inaugural Address" (which is printed in this pamphlet), with its famous call to unity ("We are all Federalists; We are all Republicans"); was received with some optimism, though many Federalists remained skeptical. One of the earliest actions of his administration seemed to bear out the Federalist's cynicism. Reacting against the Federalist bias of Adams and Washington in appointing federal officers, Jefferson began replacing Federalist appointees with his own Republican nominees. Jefferson was thorough in this process, replacing officers even in comparatively humble positions. One of the men removed by his administration was a popular customs official, Elizur Goodrich, at the port of New Haven. The reaction of the city's merchants was swift but respectful. Presuming, at least on paper, Jefferson's ignorance of local circumstances, they requested Goodrich's reinstatement. Jefferson's somewhat patronizing reply, which denied the merchant's request while developing a reply that seemed to presume their ignorance of constitutional matters, was criticized by both Federalists and some Republicans, who lamented what they saw as Jefferson's betrayal of his principles.Excerpt: Jefferson's First Inaugural Address: ".though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will, to be rightful, must be reasonable.the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression. Let us then, fellow-citizens, unite with one heart and one mind; let us restore to social intercourse that harmony and affection without which liberty, and even life itself, are but dreary things. And let us reflect, that having banished from our land that religious intolerance under which mankind so long bled and suffered, we have yet gained little, if we countenance a political intolerance, as despotic, as wicked, an.

Woyda geht vom Naturzustand des Menschen und seinen ursprünglichen Rechten und Freiheiten aus und philosophiert über die beste Staatsverfassung, bürgerliche Gleichheit, Staatslasten und strafende Gesetzgebung bis zur Erörterung der Möglichkeit eines ewigen Friedens. Dessen Chancen beurteilt er am Anfang des gerade begonnenen 19. Jahrhunderts sehr optimistisch, gerade wegen der vielen kriegerischen Auseinandersetzungen des 18. Jahrhunderts, und entwirft Artikel von Friedensverträgen, eine Art Vorgriff auf den Völkerbund. – Titel mit zwei Namenseinträgen. Bis auf das Frontispiz kaum stockfleckig. Gutes Exemplar. – H./B. II 5659 u. 5684. [Attributes: First Edition]

        La sagesse humaine, ou Le portrait d'un honnête homme.| Imastut'ün mardkayin, kam Nkaragir arak'inwoy.(Colophon in Armenian only: Venetik [= Venice], Surbn Lazar [= [Monastery of Il] San Lazzaro [degli Armeni]], 1844). Small oblong 24mo (5 x 9.5 cm). With the title and main text printed in parallel French (on the versos in roman type) and Armenian (on the rectos in Armenian type) on facing pages. Original publisher's printed paper wrappers in Armenian only.

      No edition with the Armenian text in: Armenian libraries union catalog; Armenian early printed books 1801-1850; armenology.net; ICCU; KVK; Quérard; WorldCat. Unrecorded French and Armenian edition, the first and only edition to include the Armenian text, of fourteen numbered educational maxims in the form of four-line verses (quatrains), written in French by François de Salignac de La Mothe Fénelon (1651-1715), archbishop of Cambray, probably for the education of Le Petit Dauphin, Louis, Duke of Burgundy (1682-1712) when Fénélon tutored him in the years 1689-1697. It appears here as a school book printed and published by the printing office of the Armenian Catholic (Mkhitarist) monastery, established in 1717 on an island in the Venice lagoon, since known as Il San Lazzaro degli Armeni. In very good condition, with only an occasional small spot or tiny marginal tear, and nearly untrimmed. The wrapper has small tears along the fold (repaired at the head) and some minor stains, but is otherwise also very good.

        The History of the Campaign in 1796 … 1799 in Germany and Italy …

      London: Gardiner, Egerton & Wright, , 1801. h 5 volumes octavo. Contemporary streaked calf, red morocco lettering pieces, volume numbers in green morocco roundels to the fourth compartment, edges sprinkled blue. 16 crisply-engraved folding maps and plans Lightly rubbed, corners bumped, some skilful repair to scrapes and gouges to the boards of the first two volumes, tan-burn from the turn-ins to the endpapers, pale browning of the text-blocks. First 4 volumes second editions, the fifth a first. Sometimes ascribed to Thomas Graham, Baron Lynedoch (cf. Halkett & Laing). Contemporary account of the French Revolutionary Wars, with considerable detail of early campaigns of Napoleon, "a young man … [who] was almost constantly victorious in Italy" (Preface). The author offers to those who "would wish to have before them, in one view, all the various facts … combined, arranged, and connected … The Materials from which this work is composed, have been partly collected fro, the accounts officially published at London, Vienna, and Paris; and partly procured, through means of correspondence constantly kept up with some distinguished military characters on the Continent. Some of these have been, and still are, actually engaged in this war; and others have watched its progress with the most attentive and intelligent observation … The knowledge which [the author] himself has personally had of the greater part of the theatre of the war, some of the armies which are engaged in it, and of several of the Generals who command them, joined to some degree of experience on the subject cannot have failed to be of considerable use to him". Fine contemporary armorial bookplate of the Scottish banker and philanthropist Sir William Forbes, 6th Baronet of Monymusk and Pitsligo: "Forbes was a close friend of the poet and philosopher James Beattie, and also of James Boswell, who introduced him to Samuel Johnson in 1773. Urbane and welcoming, with refined tastes in music, dancing, and drawing, Forbes gravitated towards London, where he made his mark in two ways. At one level he was a conversationalist, accepted in West End society, a member of Johnson's Literary Club, and a friend of Sir Joshua Reynolds (for whom he sat); at the other level he was a wise banker, introduced by Lord Melville to William Pitt the younger, who took his advice in monetary matters" (ODNB). A highly attractive set.

        Système des connaissances chimique et de leurs applications aux phénomènes de la nature et de l’art

      1801. relié. DeCollection. Baudouin imprimeur, Paris, 1801 (Brumaire an IX). 10 volumes In/8 reliure demi-chagrin vert, dos lisse à motifs dans l'esprit romantique à froid, T1 : 215 p. T2 : 352 p. T3. : 344 p. T4 : 322 p. T5 : 396 p. T6 : 340 p. T7 : 377 p. T8 : 330 p. T9 : 447 p. T10 : 195 p. Edition originale. Fourcroy ( 1755-1809). Avec Berthollet, il est l'un des premiers à se convertir aux vues d'Antoine Lavoisier dont il aide à publier les écrits, notamment la Méthode rationnelle de nomenclature. En revanche, lorsqu'en 1793, il remplace Marat, qui a été assassiné le 13 juillet, à la Convention nationale, et est élu au Comité d'instruction publique, il soutient le plan d'éducation de Le Peletier et soutient l'épuration des académies de médecine et des sciences, on ira jusqu'à l'accuser d'avoir provoqué la mort de Lavoisier ou, pour le moins, de n'avoir rien fait pour le sauver. Bien que son nom apparaisse dans de nombreux écrits de chimie, de physiologie et de pathologie, seul ou comme coauteur, il est plutôt un enseignant et un administrateur qu'un véritable chercheur a laissé un Essai sur le pùogistique et les acides (1788) ; Philosophie chimique (1792) ; Tableaux synoptiques de chimie (1805).

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. Di queste tavole, 9 sono a doppia pagina i.e.: la carta geografica della Toscana (incisa da Cosimo Zucchi su disegno di Giuseppe Puliti) e 4 vedute delle città di Firenze, Pisa, Livorno e Siena, con le rispettive 4 piante. Le bellissime tavole, incise all’acquatinta dai fratelli Antonio e Jacopo Terreni, da Giovanni Pera ed altri, sono tutte accompagnate da dettagliate notizie storiche. Ogni tomo è corredato da tre Indici: delle vedute, degli “artisti l’opere dei quali sono rammentate e descritte” e delle cose più notabili. “Il Viaggio pittorico della Toscana” dell’abate fiorentino Francesco Fontani (1748-1818), bibliotecario della Biblioteca Riccardiana e accademico della Crusca e dei Georgofili, fu pubblicato per la prima volta in tre tomi in folio, tra il 1801 ed il 1803, dall’editore fiorentino Giuseppe Tofani. (La seconda ediz., in piccolo formato, è del 1817, in 6 voll.). Come dichiarato nella Prefazione l’obiettivo è quello di "… raccogliere insieme tutto quel più che nobilita e rende superiore in pregio e in bellezza la deliziosa Toscana". Il primo volume - con 79 tavv. - tratta l’area nord occidentale della regione, compresa tra la provincia di Massa e Carrara con Pontremoli e l’area metropolitana di Firenze, Prato e Pistoia, includendo numerose importanti località poste sul tratto della Via Francigena nelle regioni storiche della Lunigiana e della Garfagnana. Il secondo - con 64 tavv. - considera la parte centro-meridionale compresa tra Pisa, Livorno, Massa Marittima, Grosseto, Montalcino, S. Gimignano, Volterra, Certaldo, Fucecchio, S. Miniato, Empoli, per finire con le vedute di Monte Lupo e Capraja, e del Ponte a Signa.

Casciano, Terra di Marradi, Monte Asinario, Valle Ombrosa, Montevarchi, Terra di Figline, Castello dell’Incisa, per terminare con la veduta dell’Apparita. Cfr. Brunet,II,1330 - Lozzi,II,5462 che cita solo la II (1817) e la III (1827) ediz., in-8, in 6 volumi - Choix de Olschki,I,1222 per la III ediz. “ouvrage très intéressant”. Pagine di testo con uniformi arross. più o meno lievi; solo alc. tavole con lievi fiorit. margin., ma certamente un buon esemplare.

        Saggio di Osservazioni e d'Esperienze sulle Principali Malattie degli Occhi

      Engraved frontis. port. & three fine engraved plates. 1 p.l., xi, 278, [1] pp. Large 4to, cont. green morocco-backed marbled boards (minor foxing & browning), flat spine gilt. Pavia: B. Comino, 1801. First edition of the first textbook on the subject to be published in the Italian language; Scarpa 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 Cat. 207. Garrison considered Scarpa's illustrations to be the "crown and flower of achievement in anatomic pen-drawing." A very good and large copy. Garrison-Morton 5835. Waller 8543.
