        [Le spose disperate]. Che bel Paese amabile Duetto. Musical manuscript full score. Ca. 1801

      No surviving score of the complete opera is recorded. RISM lists one manuscript copy of the duet at the Biblioteca dell'Accademia filarmonica romana, Rome (ID no. 853000470). The libretto was published in Rome by Michele Puccinelli in 1801. First performed at the Teatro Valle in Rome during Carnival in 1801. Reference works list the opera as a "dramma giocoso," but according to the libretto, it is a "farza per musica." "Caruso wrote many operas; his comic operas were sometimes reworked under different titles to satisfy the constant demand of the theatres. Their comedy always has a touch of pathos and intimacy, typical of 18th-century Neapolitan opera... The librettos he set, whether by illustrious poets (Metastasio, Bertati, Rossi) or little-known writers, were always of high quality. He is notable for his extended melodies (often reminiscent of Paisiello) and for their formal construction. Although he continued to compose into the 19th century, he was unwilling to accept the innovations of Romanticism, remaining firmly linked to the older Neapolitan style." Galliano Ciliberti in Grove Music Online.. Oblong quarto (285 x 225 mm.). [i] (title), 64, [i] (blank) pp. Notated in ink on 10-stave paper. Ascription: "Del Sig.r Luigi Caruso." Date as header to title: "Nell Carneval 1801 Teatro Valle." Shelfmark (?) to upper right corner of title: "No. 6." Note to foot of title: "Per uso del Sig:r Bartolomeo." Various watermarks: "ED," fleur-de-lis in a circle. Ten-stave system. Scored for [2] Violini, [2] Clarini [!Clarinetti in C], [2] Corni [in A], Viole, Giulietta (soprano), Conte (bass), unfigured instrumental bass. In A major.

        A Manual of Parliamentary Practice. For the Use of the Senate of the United States

      Washington City: Printed by Samuel Harrison Smith, 1801. First edition. full brown tree calf, later morocco gilt lettered label, in gray cloth slipcase. Covers darkened and spine with a bit of wear, hinges starting, some browning. 12mo. This volume written by Thomas Jefferson in 1801, is the first American book on parliamentary procedure. As Vice President of the United States, Jefferson served as the Senate's presiding officer from 1797 to 1801. Throughout these four years, Jefferson worked on various texts and, in early 1801, started to assemble them into a single manuscript for the Senate's use. In 1801 he decided to have the manuscript printed. The manual is arranged in fifty-three categories from (1) The Importance of Rules to (53) Impeachment. Each section includes the appropriate rules and practices of the British Parliament along with the applicable texts from the U.S. Constitution and the thirty-two Senate rules that existed in 1801. The Senate traditionally has not considered Jefferson's Manual of Parliamentary Practice to be its direct authority on parliamentary procedure. However, starting in 1828 the Senate began publishing a version of Jefferson's Manual for their use, removing the Senate Rules from within the text and placing them in a separate section. In 1888, when the Senate initiated publication of the Senate Manual, a copy of Jefferson's Manual was included in each biennial edition. This practice continued until 1977. The House of Representatives formally incorporated Jefferson's Manual into its rules in 1837, stipulating that the manual "should govern the House in all cases to which they are applicable and in which they are not inconsistent with the standing rules and order of the House and the joint rules of the Senate and the House of Representatives." Since then, the House has regularly printed an abridged version of the Manual in its publication entitled Constitution, Jefferson's Manual, and Rules of the House of Representatives. Jefferson's Manual was based on notes Jefferson took while studying parliamentary procedure at the College of William and Mary. A second edition with added material by Jefferson was printed in 1812. -wikipedia[Sabin 35887. Shaw & Shoemaker 719].

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

      Paris, chez l'auteur et Deterville, An IX - 1801. VIII, 432 pages et 8 tableaux plaine basane racinée de l'époque, dos lisse orné 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

        Connubia florum, latino carmine demonstrata. [facing page:] O consorcio das flores, epistola de la Croix a seu irmão. Traduzida em verso portuguez por Manoel Maria de Barbosa du Bocage.

      Lisbon, Na Typographia Chalcographica, e Litteraria do Arco do Cego, 1801. - Large 8°, contemporary speckled half calf over patterned paper boards (some wear), smooth spine with gilt bands. Engraved headpieces (cornucopias full of flowers) on pp. 2-3. Light browning, but overall in very good condition. Engraved frontispiece, (1 l.), viii, 61 pp., (1 l. advt.), 1 engraved plate. Facing title pages and main text in Latin and Portuguese. *** First Edition in Portuguese of McEnroe's Connubia florum ("Flower Weddings"), published in Paris, 1728, and again in Bath, 1791. A French translation was published in Paris, 1798. New for this translation is a 29-line poem to Carl Linnaeus signed in print by the translator, Barbosa du Bocage: "Aos manes do immortal Linne" (pp. iii-iv). A second edition of Bocage's translation appeared in Rio de Janeiro, 1811, and a third in Lisbon, 1813. The Advertencia (pp. v-viii), which gives the names of parts of plants, is a translation of a section that had appeared at least as early as the Bath, 1791 edition, the only edition we have seen digitized. The 1791 edition has no dedicatory poem and no illustrations.The frontispiece shows Cupid shooting his arrows into a tropical jungle: "Qual fere os corações as plantas fere." The engraving at the end includes two very bizarre animals (like sheep-shaped Chia pets) that flank an even more bizarre plant with a similar critter growing at the top: apparently a representation of the mating of plants. Its caption is, "Polypodium Barometis (Agnus Scythicus)." The engravings are signed by Eloy, i.e., Romão Eloy de Almeida, a skilled engraver who specialized in the illustration of scientific works. He was director of the engravers at the Arco do Cego press. After the press was incorporated into the Impressão Regia, he worked there until 1808. Eloy and his Arco do Cego colleague Ferreira Souto then went on to introduce the art of engraving to Brazil.Manoel Maria de Barbosa du Bocage (Setúbal, 1765-Lisbon, 1805), an accomplished Arcadian poet with strong romantic tendencies, wrote a great deal of occasional verse - although Bell thinks he was capable of much greater things. Beckford considered Bocage a powerful genius. Bocage's mother's father was a French naval officer in the service of Portugal. Scarred by the death of his mother when he was ten, Bocage joined an infantry regiment at age 14, then switched to the navy and departed for India in 1786, where he spent several years. At Damão he deserted and wandered for several years through China, Macao, and Goa. Back in Portugal by 1790, he joined the Academia de Bellas Letras or Nova Arcádia (where his name was "Amano Sadino"), but left it three years later. Although they were once friends and fellow Arcadians, José Agostinho de Macedo and Bocage became bitter enemies. Bocage made other enemies among the Nova Arcádia, some of whom denounced him to the police chief Pina Manique. In 1797, he was tried and imprisoned on the basis of the anti-monarchical and anti-Catholic tone of his poems. After his release, he spent most of his life doing translations, at which he was quite skilled.The Arco do Cego press (officially the Tipografia Chalcografica, Tipoplastica e Literaria, located in Lisbon at the Arco do Cego) was established in 1800 at the insistence of D. Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho, Minister of State, who realized the need to spread information on new techniques in the arts, industry and agriculture in Portugal and Brazil. He proposed to do this by publishing both original works and Portuguese translations of recent foreign works on those subjects. The director of the press was José Mariano da Conceição Veloso (1742?-1811), a native of Minas Geraes and a noted botanist; he was assisted by many young Brazilians living in Lisbon. The Arco do Cego was well equipped, with its own foundry for making type, its own presses, and its own designers and engravers. The press produced a relatively large number of works, but in 1801 it was incorporated into the Regia Oficina Typografica, also known as the Impr [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        De l'éduction d'un homme sauvage, ou des premiers développemens physiques et moraux du jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron

      Paris, Goujon fils, 1801. de (4), 1 portrait et 100 pages 1801, 1801, in - 8, de (4), 1 portrait et 100 pages, , Rare première édition d'un texte fondateur de la pédopsychiatrie. En 1797 un jeune enfant sauvage, vivant depuis sa petite enfance entièrement coupé de tout contact humain, fut aperçu dans la région de Laucane. Après plusieurs apparitions et fuites, il se rendit spontanément, en 1800, au village de Saint - Sernin. L'enfant fut amené à Paris et présenté à la Société des observateurs de l'homme, fondée en 1799 par Sicard, Jauffret et de Maimieux. Il fut confié à Jean Itard, pionnier de l'oto - rhino - laryngologie, créateur de la première école française d'otologie et fondateur de l'otologie. Ce dernier tentera de pallier les déficiences linguistiques du jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron au travers d'une démarche éducative qui visera notamment à ouvrir socialement le jeune garçon, baptisé Victor. Le texte publié en 1801 forme le rapport enthousiasme d'Itard sur la méthode employée pour parvenir à éveiller Victor au monde humain, une méthode caractérisée de sensualiste et héritée des Lumières et notamment de Condillac, dont Itard se servait pour l'apprentissage des sourds et muets. Bien que cette tentative empiriste soit vouée à l'échec, l'entreprise d'Itard reste fondatrice et son ouvrage fondamentalement novateur. Imaginant un système pédagogique nouveau basé sur une interaction originale entre élève et éducateur et couplé d'une méthode d'observation basée sur des présupposés médicaux et philosophiques, cet ouvrage participa à faire d'Itard un personnage emblématique de la psychiatrie infantile. L'aventure entreprise par Itard, malgré la violente condamnation des premiers psychiatres français, Pinel et Esquirol, de Victor à un idiotisme insolvable, ouvre la voix à l'éducation des retardés mentaux. Bruno Bettelheim considèrera en 1967, dans La Forteresse vide, le rapport d'Itard sur le jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron comme la première prise en charge institutionnelle d'un autiste, et sa première véritable description.

        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.

        Lectures on the Elements of Commerce, Politics, and Finances;

      London: Printed by A. Strahan for T. N. Longman and O. Rees,, 1801. intended as a companion to Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England; and peculiarly calculated to qualify young noblemen and gentlemen for situations in any of the public offices under government, and for parliamentary business. Octavo (208 x 123 mm). Contemporary reddish-brown half roan, gilt banded spine, black morocco label, marbled sides. Inscribed on the front pastedown: "I give this Work to the Marchmont Library, October 1816, W. Purves Hume Campbell" and on the title page: "W. Purves 1800"; this is Sir William Purves-Hume-Campbell (1767-1833), 6th baronet Purves, of Purves Hall, Berwickshire; Marchmont House, a stark but imposing Palladian manor, still stands near Greenlaw in the Scottish Borders. General foxing, a few marginal pencillings. A very good copy, with the publisher's 16pp. catalogue (dated 1 July 1801) at the end (interesting for including works on naval architecture and books for "gentlemen going to the East Indies"). First octavo edition, scarce: Copac cites copies at just seven British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Chetham's Library, Glasgow, LSE, Scotland, Edinburgh, Senate House); well represented in OCLC but most uncommon in commerce. The subscriber's list runs to around 170 names, headed by the Marquis of Lansdowne, and includes Sir William Hamilton, Lord Nelson, and John Horne Tooke. Lectures on the elements of commerce, politics, and finances was originally published in quarto as The elements of commerce, politics and finances (London 1772), and in his introduction to the present edition, Mortimer notes that the idea for "a cheaper edition, and a new form of compiling it, [was] suggested by some respectable gentlemen of the University of Oxford, to whom the author paid a visit in the year 1798, as likely to be more useful to young students". Thomas Mortimer (1730-1810) was a prolific writer on trade and finance, perhaps best known for Every man his own broker: or a guide to the stock exchange (1761).

        Traité de Minéralogie, Tome Cinquième: Charactéres Minéralogiques, Description méthodique des Minéraux, Figures Géométriques. [Atlas volume only]. [First edition].

      Chez Louis 1801 - Paris, oblong quarto, [viii], [1]-10, [2] p. and 86 lithographed plates. ***Content: This treatise is Haüy's magnum opus, containing his theory of crystal structure and his system of mineral classification. Haüy believed that chemistry played a secondary role to crystallography in the determination of mineral species groups. He deduced the law of rational indices, and is recognized as the founder of the science of crystallography. In a historical context, this work is arguably one of the most influential treatises on the subject of mineralogy and crystallography ever produced. This atlas volume devotes four pages to mineralogical characteristics; ten pages outline the classes, orders, genera and species of minerals; the remainder of the volume is devoted to plates with diagrams and crystal form figures, sculpted by Cloquet and Maleuvre. ***Condition: A VG copy in the original thick paper-covered boards. The covers are sound but moderately worn and faded. Joints and hinges starting but sewing solid, binding firm. Page edges untrimmed; pages measure 295 mm by 225 mm. Save for a small corner stain to some plates at the rear of the volume, the text pages and plates are fresh, clean, crisp and bright, with sharp impressions of the lithographer’s stone. Small, old bookplate on the first endpaper, but no other previous ownership indications. Overall, a handsome, well preserved copy of this scarce atlas. Ward and Carozzi 1022. Shuh 2126. BMNH 802.

This handsome portrait depicts the Blue-Fronted Amazon, one of the most popular and intelligent parrots.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, the greatest of which was the Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets (1801-1805).

        Wie Gertrud ihre Kinder lehrt, ein Versuch den Müttern Anleitung zu geben, ihre Kinder selbst zu unterrichten, in Briefen [.].

      Bern-Zürich, Heinrich Geßner, 1801. - Erstausgabe. - „[.] 1798 eröffnete Pestalozzi zum zweitenmal ein Waisenhaus; in Stans. Hier versammelte er achtzig Zöglinge, von denen er einige für den Lehrberuf an Elementarschulen ausbildete. Im Jahr darauf wurde er an die Volksschule Burgdorf berufen, wo er das obengenannte Buch schrieb. Der Titel ist irreführend, denn in den Briefen, die den Inhalt des Buches ausmachen, ist mehr von den Ergebnissen als von der Methode des Lehrens die Rede, und Gertrud selbst erscheint gar nicht. Trotzdem ist es eine erschöpfende Darlegung der pädagogischen Grundsätze Pestalozzis und legt besonderes Gewicht auf die drei ‚Elementa': Lesen, Schreiben, Rechnen. Die wichtigste und zukunftsträchtigste seiner Ideen, auf die er in seiner Praxis wie in seiner Lehre größten Nachdruck legte, war die Erkenntnis, daß die wahre Erziehungsmethode in der Ausbildung eines Kindes und nicht, wie bei einem Hund, in der Abrichtung liege. Der Zögling müsse für wichtiger erachtet werden als der Erwachsene, und es käme darauf an, ihn zum ‚ganzen Menschen' zu entwickeln" (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 476f.). - Einband etw. berieben u. bestoßen.

        Traité de Minéralogie.

      Louis, Paris 1801 - 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).
