        Vies des Hommes Illustres

      1801. PLUTARCH. Les Vies des Hommes Illustres… Traduites du Grec par Amyot. Paris: Cussac, 1801-05. Twenty-five volumes. Small octavo, contemporary full brown mottled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, green morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers and edges. $4000.Later edition of Amyot’s translation, the 1559 edition of which was the basis of North’s English translation, a major source for Shakespeare’s three Roman plays.“What raises [Plutarch] to a level of greatness as a writer is his Lives. We have two of his lives of the Caesars, one or two stray lives, and 23 in a series of contrasting pairs, always one Greek and one Roman, usually with a summary comparison of their moral qualities… His Lives really are the stuff of poetry, though they read as unpretentious prose. With the alteration of very few words, they transmute into Shakespeare” (Levi, 464-65). “The influence of Plutarch’s method has been constantly manifest in the biographies of the modern great and in the authors who have been inspired by it. Shakespeare relied almost exclusively on [North’s] Plutarch for the historical background of ancient Rome” (PMM 48). First published in 1559, Jacques Amyot’s vigorous and idiomatic version “obtained an immense popularity, and exercised great influence over successive generations of French writers” (Auguste de Belignieres). It was the version used by Sir Thomas North for his English translation of 1579. Montaigne said of Amyot, “I give the palm to Jacques Amyot over all our French writers, not only for the simplicity and purity of his language in which he surpasses all others, nor for his constancy to so long an undertaking, nor for his profound learning… but I am grateful to him especially for his wisdom in choosing so valuable a work.” With engraved frontispiece in Volume I and a number of full-page illustrations throughout the set. Brunet IV, 739. See Peck, 1279-80; Moss II,518-19. Interiors remarkably clean and bright, contemporary calf-gilt bindings exceptional. A beautiful set in fine condition.

        Systême des animaux sans vertèbres, ou tableau général des classes, des ordres et des genres de ces animaux [...]

      Paris, chez l'auteur et Deterville, 1801. An IX-1801, An IX-1801, in-8, VIII, 432 pages et 8 tableaux, plaine basane racinée de l'époque, dos lisse orné, Rare première édition de ce texte qui pose les fondements de la théorie de l'évolution, du "transformisme" de Lamarck. "Lamarck's first public presentation of his theory of evolution was in his opening discourse for his course on invertebrates at the museum in 1800 ; it was published the following year at the beginning of his Systême des animaux sans vertèbres." (DSB, VII, p.589 ; voir aussi Dibner, Heralds of Science, 194). Ainsi, Lamarck écrit, dés 1801 en opposition au "fixisme" dont Cuvier est le plus célèbre représentant : "Je pourrais prouver que ce n'est point la forme soit du corps, soit de ses parties qui donne lieu aux habitudes, à la manière de vivre des animaux ; mais que ce sont au contraire les habitudes, la manière de vivre et toutes les circonstances influentes qui ont, avec le temps, constitué la forme du corps et des parties des animaux. Avec de nouvelles formes, de nouvelles facultés ont été acquises, et, peu à peu, la nature est parvenue à l'état où nous la voyons actuellement". En outre, dans cet ouvrage, Larmarck crée, à partir des travaux d'anatomie comparée de Cuvier, un système de classification des invertébrés (dont il généralise le mot). "He separated spiders and crustaceans from insects, and classified worms into truer categories than had Linnaeus" (Dibner, 194). Bel exemplaire de ce texte doublement fondateur, en premier état sans le feuillet 402bis de "Second addition". DSB, VII, p. 589 ; Dibner, 194 ; Norman, 1261

      1801. 1 S. 4to. Bedankt sich beim Vorsteher der k. k. Hoftheater, Freiherr von Braun, für eine goldene Dose mit hundert Stück Ducaten, die ihm dieser zum Abschied geschenkt hatte: "Ew. Wohlgeb. beehren mich mit einem Andenken, wovon ich nicht Erwartung haben konnte. Indem Sie dem Vergnügen der Kaiserstadt vorstehen, belohnen Sie in dem Sinne, den große Monarchen ihren Geschäftsverwesern einflößen. Es ist das Schicksal, daß die, welche mit Wärme die Kunst lieben, gewöhnl weit getrennt sind. Nur Aehnlichkeit der Empfindungen hebt allen Zwischenraum! Habe ich die Freude Ihnen zu gefallen, so habe ich die Gewißheit, in der Hauptsache nie unter Ihrer Erwartung zu handeln, und also die Hoffnung Ihres Wohlwollens werth zu bleiben. Das Publ von Wien verlasse ich mit Liebe, Rührung und einem heiligen Andenken, das, was ich beim Abschied nicht mehr reden konnte, verbürgt was ich empfinde. Ihnen danke ich diese Freude - und mit Hochachtung empfange ich das schöne Denkmahl, was Sie von meiner blühenden Periode mir übergeben. Wenn in der großen Lebensgeschichte das Band und die Kraft, die Alles umfasst, in dem liegt, dass man ahnet, sich wieder zu begegnen: so sei es die meine, wenn ich mit Rührung scheide! Friede, Freude, Genuß, Ruhe, Ausdauer und Erkanntwerden sei ihr Lohn! [...]". - Gefaltet.

        Examen de la Legislation Romaine, Anglaise et Francaise, En Matiere...

      1801. Paris, 1801. Let the Punishment Fit the Crime Sarreste, Charles Joseph. Examen de la Legislation Romaine, Anglaise et Francaise, En Matiere Criminelle; Et Moyen de Proportionner la Peine au Delit. Paris: Chez Garnery/Rondonneau/Veuve Richard, An 11 [1801]. [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.

"Analyser avec précision les propriétés des corps vivants; montrer que tout phénomène physiologique se rapporte en dernière analyse à ces propriétés considérées dans leur état naturel (..); bien distinguer, en physiologie comme en médecine, ce qui provient de l'une, de ce qui émane des autres; déterminer (..) ceux des phénomènes naturels et morbifiques auxquels président les animales, et ceux que produisent les organiques; indiquer quand la sensibilité animale et la contractilité de même espèce, quand la sensibilité organique et les contractilités sensible ou insensible qui lui correspondent sont mises en jeu : voilà la doctrine générale de cet ouvrage".

        Précis historique, physiologique et moral, des principaux objets en cire préparée et coloriée d'après nature, qui composent le muséum de J.-Fois Bertrand-Rival

      Paris, Richard, 1801. an X-1801, an X-1801, in-8, portrait, 448pp, basane fauve racinée, dos lisse orné (reliure de l'époque), Portrait de l'auteur gravé par Benoist d'après Cossard. Cet ouvrage connut deux éditions antérieures intitulées "Tableau historique et moral des principaux objets en cire, etc.", en 1798 (100pp.) et 1800 (391pp.). La troisième édition, que nous présentons ici, est donc considérablement augmentée. Le docteur Bertrand créa son muséum de cires en 1775, après avoir été un candidat malheureux au poste de céroplasticien au Museum d'histoire naturelle et à l'École de médecine. Il exposa sa collection à Paris, pendant plusieurs années. Elle était très célèbre au début du XIX° siècle, et comptait plus de trois cents pièces d'anatomie, de physiologie et de pathologie. En 1813, la Société de médecine de Marseille en fit l'acquisition. Bertrand-Vidal exposait trois classes d'objets: des cires de physiologie anatomique, d'autres de pathologie et enfin celles de zootomie et d'histoire naturelle. Il exposait dans un but essentiellement moral et s'inscrivit, à la suite de Tissot, dans le courant de lutte contre l'onanisme. Il alla plus loin, en figurant par des modèles de cires les méfaits de la masturbation, voulant "inspirer l'horreur aux jeunes gens avec plus d'efficacité (..) car les yeux frappent mieux que les autres sens" (p.309). Cet objectif dissuasif aurait "converti" un certains nombre de jeunes gens, comme en témoignent quelques contemporains, dont le docteur Doussin-Dubreuil, auteur de "Lettres sur les dangers de l'onanisme" (Paris, 1806).

Each with the plate number at the top right margin and with lithographed text at the top of the image. On each of the lower margins is "Pub. June 1st 1801 by S.W. Fores No.50 Piccadilly Prints and Drawings lent on the plan of a Library Folio's of Caricatur lent out for the Evening." / Symptoms of the Shop" / "Drawn by G. Woodward Etchd by F. Sansom". Some light marginal soiling, otherwise near fine. Plate #7. "After all there is nothing like the true old orthodox principles…" Plate #8. "I have brought your Honor home your new suit…" Plate #10. "Madam - I was once a Minister and used to negotiations…" Very rare. According to OCLC there is only one complete set in libraries and institutions worldwide (Princeton, NJ) - does not mention 'colored'). Yale university has nine of the twelve colored plates (missing numbers 1, 7 & 8). The Lewis Walpole Library, CT. has plate #3 (colored). Harvard, MA has one plate. These two artists previously collaborated on Every Body in Town (BC-28), Every Body Out of Town (BC-29), and Pigmy Revels: All Alive in Lilliput (BC-62), all published by Fores. Each plate depicts two persons engaged in humorous wordplay relating to the characteristics of a trade or calling. (William Gordon. A catalogue of the Books, Drawings, Prints and Periodicals forming the William A. Gordon Library of British Caricature). The three images present here include: Plate 7. A man, sitting in a wooden chair, lifts his hand for emphasis, and declares: "After all there is nothing like the true old orthodox principles." An obese clergyman, in a padded armchair on the right, responds: "Orthodox principles - ah my dear friend, you put me in mind of old times - when I was but a simple vicar. How I used to charm my congregation - slim as a Bedles wand - & delicate as a new wash'd surplice, - but since I have been raised to higher dignities, I do nothing, but remain in my chair; bulky & unweildy as a Folio Church Service. - oh how elegantly I used to manage my discourses - fifteen minutes to a point, by the clock under the gallery - never exceeded - short praye, - text - and devision - one - two - three & away - that was my method." Plate 8. A man with a parcel under his arm bows slightly and says: "I have brought your Honor home your new suit." A stout, bespectacled lawyer replies: "Suit - ah - Mr. Buckram you did not know me when I practiced in the Courts - I could have shewn you suits that would have puzzled Judge Blackstone himself - none of your simple matters - brim full of Law, as a brief bag - intricate as the Temple avenues, -& long as Westminster Hall - Shy Clients sometimes, - but it would not do with Paul Parchment - sure to have them on way or other. - Once in never out that was my motto." Plate 10. A former Minister, holding his hat, wearing a bag-wig, and with his pocket filled with scrolls, addresses a woman: "Madam - I was once a Minister, and used to Negotiations, I shall therefore be happy to treat with you on Matrimonial Speculation - I have ample credentials ready to ratify my powers, and if you please will enter into preliminaries immediately, - but let me have a sight glance at your project, and be assured I will deliver to you my contre projet as soon as the definitive treaty is concluded, and duly guaranteed." The woman, who is short and plump, looks aghast at the proposition.

        Captn. John Hunter Late Governor of New South Wales.

      London: Burney & Gold, 1801. Stipple engraving, 175 x 128mm (sheet size), very closely trimmed but otherwise good. An unusual portrait of Captain John Hunter, captain of the Sirius during the First Fleet era and later Governor of New South Wales from 1795-1800. This portrait was prepared in 1801, and so is significant as showing Hunter just after he had returned from New South Wales for the second time.An accomplished and professional naval officer, Hunter's time on the Sirius saw him become a mainstay of the colony, dispatched to Batavia and the Cape of Good Hope to trade. His governorship was not as successful, as Hunter's attempts to confront the illegal trade in rum and other challenges to his authority led to even more turbulence from the New South Wales Corps and its cronies. It was a crucial period in the consolidation of New South Wales as the penal outpost of the British Empire, and while Hunter was widely regarded as a competent administrator by 1799 things had deteriorated to the extent that he was recalled rather sternly.This engraving appeared in the Naval Chronicle of 1801. It depicts Hunter as a more senior and dashing figure than the earlier engraving of 1792 which had been included as frontispiece in Hunter's An Historical Journal of the Transactions at Port Jackson and Norfolk Island.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Henry Dundas, Lord Melville, discussing the northwest Pacific after his meeting with Sauer at the house of Sir Joseph Banks.

      London: 12 January 1801. Single sheet of wove paper, 265 x 445 mm., watermarked "JW", folded to letter-size with holograph manuscript to three pages; traces of original folds, later refolded to docket-size and with manuscript description in another hand. A very significant letter from the great cartographer Alexander Dalrymple, of especial interest regarding British and Russian ambitions in the northwest Pacific. Its opening line sets the scene wonderfully: 'Last night at Sir Joseph Banks's house, I saw a gentleman, Mr. Sauer, who is arrived within these 10 or 12 days from Russia... '. Sauer had previously served in the North Pacific under Joseph Billings. This must have been an exceptional meeting of Pacific Ocean experts, and further underlines Banks's abiding interest in the region. Certainly the letter also highlights Dalrymple's continuing research in his position as hydrographer to the Admiralty, while the fact that it is written to Henry Dundas, first Viscount Melville, then serving as the War Secretary under Pitt, also confirms the strategic importance of the work he was doing.Dalrymple gives a fascinating précis of his detailed conversation with Sauer, who had sailed as an officer on the expedition that left St Petersburg in 1785 under the command of Joseph Billings. On their lengthy expedition Billings, who had sailed with Captain Cook on the third voyage, even met up with a fellow Cook-alumnus, John Ledyard, in Yakutsk. Billings and Sauer made a second voyage in the northern Pacific in 1790. Most importantly, it was Sauer who wrote the important account of the Billings voyages, published not long after this meeting, in 1802.In the letter, Dalrymple sketches Sauer's valuable account of the Russian Fur Trade, noting that it has 'undergone a great change, by the present Emperor having established an American Company.' He comments that they are said to employ seven vessels of about 150 tons each, and includes military and hydrographic details of the base at Okotsk, giving this description of the American coast: 'very populous... they could collect 20,000 men in 24 hours; but that the NW part is the least populous many of the places named in the map having no existence and others being merely fishing huts... the Russians have 1200 men at Cook's River.' There is a good description of the warlike Tschutski, with the note that 'their country having no wood for Canoes they cross over to America & supply themselves by violence from their more peaceable neighbours and also make slaves of them.'The letter makes clear that Sauer was already planning his publication ('He proposes publishing his Voyage having all the Charts &c. but it is not written out'), and, reflecting Dalrymple's sense of the importance of the information, he urges Dundas to buy Sauer's papers 'for I suppose a small sum, as he would be entitled to the profits of Publication.' It seems that this transaction was never approved.Dalrymple's papers are chiefly in the British Library and the Public Records Office, although interestingly his correspondence with Dundas is in the National Library of Scotland. Small tears around original seal (not present).

        A Sequel to Barrington's Voyage to New South Wales, comprising an interesting narrative of the Transactions and Behaviour of the Convicts...

      London: C. Lowndes, 1801. Octavo, laid paper uncut, with the 6 pp. 'Official Register of the Crimes, Trials and Executions'; in later half calf, spine banded and gilt, crimson morocco label. A scarce Barrington title.This so-called Sequel drew most of its content from David Collins' Account of the English Settlement of New South Wales, the first volume of which had been published in 1798. 'The first chapter includes a brief continuation of "Barrington's" adventures with Yeariana and Palerino - the cross-cultural romance hinted at in the final chapter of the Voyage now blossomed into a tableau of domestic happiness... There is also some attempt to install "Barrington" as an active agent in certain episodes taken from Collins' narrative where events at Parramatta are described.' (Garvey, The Celebrated George Barrington, Hordern House, 2008)This was reprinted from an earlier Lowndes edition of 1800, but completely reset with a smaller typeface, tighter spacing, and with the omission of the chapter summary heads.Garvey's extensive bibliography of the Barrington books suggests that this is one of the more uncommon titles, listing only six copies in Australian holdings (including no fewer than three at the Mitchell Library). A good tall copy.

        Bowles's New One Sheet Map of Asia...

      London: Bowles and Carver, circa, 1801. Dissected map, 54 pieces with three blank replacement pieces (the lost pieces in the regions of Java, Sumatra and Hokkaido); hand-coloured lithograph paper laid down on wood, the completed map measuring 485 x 582 mm., in the original timber box with sliding lid, original printed label. A wonderful children's puzzle created from a very early scarce nineteenth-century map of Asia and the Pacific that includes details of the northernmost portion of Australia as well as an additional inset map of the entire Australian continent.Maps and charts were the first popular subject for puzzles in the eighteenth century, with the London mapmaker John Spilsbury usually credited with popularising them around 1760. Ethnographic and topographic puzzles soon followed, as did interlocking border puzzles (of which this is a particularly good example), the first known examples of which date from the mid-1770s.This puzzle was crafted from a map of greater Asia published by renowned London mapmakers Carter and Bowles. The hand-coloured map has been carefully dissected into 54 pieces which follow coastlines and national boundaries.The inset map of the Australian continent is rich in historical detail. Van Diemen's Land is depicted distinct from the mainland with 'Basses Str.' clearly printed. Notable harbours and landmarks along the eastern seaboard are noted, including Bateman's Bay, Port Jackson, Botany Bay, Cape Byron, Hervey Bay, Cape Morton and Cape York. Interestingly, the inset map records the sites and dates of early Dutch discoveries in Western Australia as well as William Dampier's first landfall of 1688.Regarding the map itself, Bowles's "New One Sheet Map of Asia" was issued several times with amendments. Perry & Prescott date the map 1801 - which would accord with the inclusion of Bass Strait - and record that the National Library holds a copy.

        Traité de Minéralogie.

      Paris: Louis, 1801. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Four text volumes, 8vo (198 x 126 mm) and one atlas volume, oblong 4to (226 x 249 mm). [4], lvi, 494, [2]; [4], 617 [1], [2]; [4], 588 [2]; [4], 592 [2] pp, including half-titles and errata slips in each volume. Atlas volume [8], 10, [2] pp and 86 engraved plates. Bound in contemporary half mottled calf, spines elaborately tooled in gilt, red and green gilt morocco lettering pieces (little wear to extremities, corners scuffed and bumped, upper spine of vol. I and lower spine of vol. IV repaired). Little age-toning and very minor occasional spotting in text, faint dampstaining to blank margin of title-page and few leaves in vol. IV. The plates clean and virtually unfoxed. Provenance: signed by the publisher beneath the "Extrait du Decret concernant les Contrefacteurs" on the verso of the half-title in volume I. All in all a fine, crisp and clean copy, rarely found in uniform binding of the atlas and text volumes as here. ----Roller-G. I, 521; Honeyman 1627; Hoover 391; En Francais dans le texte 176; DSB VI, p.178. - FIRST EDITION. In 1801, Haüy published "his main work, Traité de Minéralogie, the first volume of which presented his crystal theory; in the three subsequent volumes, he expounded his system of mineral classification." (DSB). In this work, he revised the nomenclature of minerals as well as describing his discovery of the geometrical law of crystallization. This is the man who truly founded and developed the science of crystallography and, as Adams says, was simple, modest, a lover of learning, whose attention was directed to the study of mineralogy almost by chance. In handling a group of calcite crystals at the home of a friend, Hauy accidentally dropped them. When he re-examined the broken prism he noticed a new form, bounded by faces as smooth and shining as the original. "A new light broke upon the subject" (Hoover). Very Good.
