        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.

        [Blue-Fronted Amazon] La Perruche à front jaune, mâle

      Paris, 1801. Colour-printed engraving with hand-colouring. Printed by Langlois. 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.

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.

        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).

        Zur geschichte des deutschen Verfassungswerkes 1848-49, Jürgens

      Jürgens Carl H., 1801-60 - Zur geschichte des deutschen Verfassungswerkes 1848-49, Jürgens - 2 Tle in 3 Bdn. JÜRGENS, Carl Heinrich, Zur Geschichte des Deutschen Verfassungswerkes 1848-49. 2 Teile (in 3 Bdn). Braunschweig, Vieweg, 1850/57. (13) 523; (8) 501; (10) 734 S. Orig. Hldr., Erste Ausgabe. - Die erste größere Darstellung zur Paulskirchenverfassung. Siehe NDB X, 649 Erstausgabe. Sauber, nahezu fleckenfrei. HIER MIT PROMINENTER PROVENIENZ: HOFBIBLIOTHEK WITTELSBACH. Carl Heinrich Jürgens (* 3. Mai 1801 in Braunschweig; † 2. Dezember 1860 in Wiesbaden) war ein deutscher lutherischer Theologe, Redakteur, Publizist und Politiker. Vormärz Sein Vater war Schatzeinnehmer. Nach dem Abschluss der Schule studierte Jürgens Theologie in Göttingen und promovierte zum Dr. theol. Er war seit 1820 Mitglied des Corps Brunsviga Göttingen. Danach war er Pfarrer in Amelunxborn, Negenborn und Stadtoldendorf. In den 1830er Jahren kam er in Kontakt mit Karl Steinacker. Durch diesen kam er in Verbindung mit Carl Theodor Welcker. An dem von diesem mitherausgegeben Rotteck-Welckerschen Staatslexikon hat er als Autor ebenso mitgearbeitet wie an Konversationslexika und als Autor von Zeitschriftenbeiträgen. Daneben war er Mitbegründer des Gustav Adolf Vereins. Dadurch geriet er in Widerspruch zur Kirchenleitung. Nach der Entthronung von Herzog Karl II. 1830 hat Jürgens sich zwar gegen ein Naturrecht auf Widerstand gewandt, gleichwohl an die Fürsten insbesondere den preußischen König Friedrich Wilhelm III. nachdrücklich appelliert, endlich ihr Verfassungsversprechen aus der Zeit der Befreiungskriege einzulösen. In seiner Schrift „Über die Notwendigkeit durchgreifender Reformen bei der gegenwärtigen Lage Deutschlands" wandte er sich gegen die naturrechtliche Vertragslehre vom Wesen des Staates sowie gegen jede revolutionäre Bewegung. Stattdessen plädierte er für eine fortschreitende evolutionäre Entwicklung. Im Kern hat er diese Auffassung auch später stets vertreten. In den Jahren 1837 bis 1839 war er Mitglied im Braunschweiger Landtag. Im Jahr 1842 wurde er erneut gewählt, hat das Mandat aber nicht angetreten. Revolution 1848/1849 ? Hauptartikel: Revolution 1848/1849 in Braunschweig Zu Beginn der Märzrevolution war er der Führer der liberal-nationalen Bewegung in Braunschweig. Er war Mitglied des Frankfurter Vorparlaments und des Fünfzigerausschusses. In diesen gelang es ihm gegen radikale Kräfte eine Gruppe Gemäßigter zusammenzubringen, die damit weitergehende Beschlüsse verhindern konnten. Für den Wahlkreis Braunschweig-Stadt wurde Jürgens in die Frankfurter Nationalversammlung gewählt. Dieser gehörte er bis zum Ende an. Er war Mitglied im zentralen Wahlausschuss und im Verfassungsausschuss. An der Verfassungsdiskussion hat er sich intensiv beteiligt. Er gehörte zunächst der Casinosfraktion und später der Fraktion Pariser Hof an. Einen deutschen Einheitsstaat ohne Untergliederung in einzelne Länder lehnte er ab. Er konstatierte die Schwäche der Nationalversammlung und der provisorischen Zentralgewalt. In der Auflösung des Bundestages und der Nichtbeteiligung der Länder am Verfassungswerk sah er große Fehler. Bei der Verfassungsdebatte drang Jürgens auf eine Beschleunigung des Beschlusses über die Grundrechte. Er lehnte ein Erbkaisertum ab und wählte Friedrich Wilhelm IV. nicht zum Kaiser. Autor und Publizist Er gab seit dem 14. Juni 1848 die „Flugblätter aus der deutschen Nationalversammlung" heraus, in denen er in grober Weise seine Vorstellungen verbreitete. Als die Zeitung immer mehr zu einer Schmähschrift wurde, zogen sich anfängliche Unterstützer und Mitarbeiter zurück. Neben seiner politischen Tätigkeit war Jürgens auch als Autor erfolgreich. Dies gilt etwa für seine Lutherbiographie Luther von seiner Geburt bis zum Ablassstreit erschienen in drei Bänden seit 1846. Die Schrift wurde in Fachkreisen breit rezipiert. Nach dem Ende der Nationalversammlung konzentrierte sich Jürgens auf die Tätigkeit als Autor und Redakteur. Er veröffentlichte auch als Rechtfert [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Minutes of the Proceedings of the . Convention of Delegates from the Abolition Societies Established in Different Parts of the United States, Assembled at Philadelphia [First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Seventh Conventions]

      Printed by Zachariah Poulson, Junr., Philadelphia 1801 - Six sewn pamphlets in plain paper wrappers: 30, [2]; 32; 32; 59; 20; 55pp. Three (1794, 1797, 1801) are untrimmed in original plain paper wrappers; the other three (1795, 1796, 1798) are trimmed in early plain paper wrappers. The first pamphlet from 1794 has a contemporary signature of Samuel Rodman on the top of the title page; the fourth pamphlet from 1797 has a contemporary signature of Isaac Hicks on the front wrap. The front wrap of the fourth pamphlet is detached, a very good set.These pamphlets record the proceedings of the first American effort at national organization around the anti-slavery cause. Held in January 1794, the first meeting drew delegates from the abolition societies of Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. Later meetings added attendees from Rhode Island and Virginia, and each pamphlet lists the names of those present -- among them Benjamin Rush, Jonathan Edwards, and many important early abolitionists. The first gathering "voted to petition Congress to prohibit the slave trade and also to appeal to the legislatures of the various states to abolish slavery. The petitions pointed out the inconsistency of a country that had recently rejected the tyranny of kings engaging in "domestic despotism." Despite limited funds or authority and infrequent meetings, these conventions harnessed considerable public support for reform and imbued their ideological successor, the American Anti-Slavery Society, with cornerstone goals designed to "bring the whole nation to a speedy repentance." *Evans* 26533, 28146, 29947, 31686, 33264 (Conventions 1-5).

        Abstract of the Answers and Returns made pursuant to an Act, passed in the Forty-first Year of His Majesty King George III.

      [London:] [printed by Luke Hansard],, 1801-02. Entituled "An Act for taking an Account of the Population of Great Britain, and the Increase or Diminution thereof. 2 volumes, folio. Original pale blue-grey boards, 20th century pale brown paper spines to style (with typed labels), uncut. The Salisbury Cathedral Library copy, with their letterpress statement of ownership on verso of title pages and final leaf of text. Some chips to spines, a little rubbing to boards. A superior copy: tall and clean, scarce in the original boards. First edition of the first British census, the first detailed census of any country ever undertaken. "In 1801, the census was taken to determine Britain's overall fighting strength and to assess the agricultural capabilities of the country in relation to the numbers needing to eat. It was clear to the government that fighting the continuing war with France required people. Yet the 1790s had seen failed harvests, food riots, a wartime dislocation of trade, and political unrest. In the midst of such scarcity, the British government was as worried about disorder at home as about the war in Europe; too many hungry bodies, the French Revolution had made clear, could easily turn to violence" (Kathrin Levitan, A Cultural History of the British Census: Envisioning the Multitude in the Nineteenth Century, p. 49). The British census was drawn up to give a complete economic picture of the nation, together with a demographic history of the previous century from Parish Registers. The published returns tabulate houses, giving the number of families in each and the number uninhabited, gender, and occupations. The tabulations from the Parish registers give baptisms, burials and marriages from 1700 to 1800. The principle of the census had been proposed by the statistician and civil servant John Rickman (1771-1840): "Rickman correctly rejected the then modish view that population was falling, suggesting that a census would offer government an invaluable aid to effective military recruitment in the war with France, and by confirming growing national prosperity would also promote internal stabilization. He demonstrated that it was possible to derive population estimates from parish registers, thus facilitating a back-projection of demographic trends. Rickman's paper was shown to Charles Abbot by George Rose, MP for Christchurch, and in March 1801 Abbot steered the census bill to the statute book. Rickman had no hesitation in claiming credit; on 27 December 1801 he wrote to Robert Southey, 'At my suggestion, they have passed an Act of Parliament for ascertaining the population of Great Britain, and as a compliment (of course) have proposed me to superintend the execution of it'... Rickman's career and posthumous reputation were thus determined. With considerable skill he conducted the first census, which confounded Malthus's fear of falling population, and then developed tolerably accurate estimates of eighteenth-century population trends" (ODNB).

Fischer - chez Armand Koenig, an IX - 1801, in-4, [4]-52 pages, titre-frontispice et 2 planches gravées à l'aquatinte, demi-basane blonde de l'époque à coins vélin, dos orné de filets dorés, pièce de titre grenat, Édition originale, rare, de la thèse de Charles Sultzer, jeune médecin de l'École de médecine de Strasbourg ; elle est ornée d'un charmant titre-frontispice en couleurs montrant un génie qui s'avance vers un microscope pour observer le "bicorne rude", qu'il porte dans un bocal, et de deux planches d'après dessins de l'auteur, figurant les observations microscopiques du prétendu parasite : avec et sans membrane, le détail de la structure et des "cornes" pourvues de poils ainsi qu'une coupe latérale et sagittale. Charles Sultzer (1770-1854) présente ici la découverte d'une nouvelle espèce d'un ver intestinal, le "Bicorne rude" (Ditrachyceros rudis), trouvé dans les selles d'une femme de 26 ans présentant des troubles digestifs. La description du parasite est confirmée en 1804 par Laennec dans son Mémoire sur les vers vésiculaires. Par la suite, on constata que le "bicorne rude" n'était autre qu'une graine de mûrier noir (Morus nigra). Le fruit, non mûr, ingérée par la patiente, présentait effectivement deux cornes, restes des stigmates de la fleur. "Néanmoins ce faux parasite eut une assez longue existence jusqu'à ce que Bremser [parasitologiste autrichien (1767-1827)] le considère comme un pseudo-parasite." Cette thèse erronée constitua un "excellent exemple d'errement de l'esprit humain et d'observations microscopiques mal interprétées" et révéla la difficulté particulière du diagnostic microscopique des éléments parasitaires des selles.

        Hilpoltstein", Landschaft mit einer Burg.

      - Bleistift, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: CCN, rechts unten betitelt (?) „Hilpoltstein", links oben alte Paginierung „K. II. 186 ". 20,1:28,9 cm Links oben kleine Knickfalte, ein wenig fleckig. Hilpoltstein ist ca. 35 km von Nürnberg entfernt. Daß Klein Studienreisen in die nähere Umgebung seiner Geburtsstadt unternahm, ist nachweisbar, so z.B. 1801 nach Wildenfels, das in der Nähe von Hilpoltstein liegt. Bereits als Achtjähriger erhielt Klein Zeichenunterricht durch den Maler G.C. II. von Bemmel (1765-1811). 1802 wurde er von G.P. Zwinger (1779-1819) an der Nürnberger Zeichenschule unterrichtet. 1805-1811 war er Lehrling bei dem Maler, Zeichner und Kupferstecher A. Gabler (1762-1834). Ab 1811 Studium an der Kunstakademie in Wien. 1814 und 1816 erfolgte eine Reise nach Ungarn und 1815 eine Studienreise an Main und Rhein. 1818 hielt er sich in München auf, wo er mit P. von Hess (1792-1871) und M.J. Wagenbauer (1775-1829) verkehrte. 1819 kehrte Klein in seine Heimatstadt zurück. Von dort aus unternahm er mit seinen Freunden J.C. Erhard (1795-1822), den Brüdern F.P. (1779-1840) und H. Reinhold (1788-1825) und E. Welker (1788-1857) eine Reise ins Salzkammergut. Von Ende 1819 bis August 1821 weilte Klein in Italien. Zunächst Rückkehr nach Nürnberg. 1833 wird er zum Mitglied der Berliner Kunstakademie ernannt. 1839 zog er nach München, wo er bis zu seinem Tode leben sollte. Ab 1848 beginnendes Augenleiden, was in den nächsten Jahren zu einer zunehmenden Beeinträchtigung des Sehvermögens führen und schließlich ab 1871 das Arbeiten unmöglich machen sollte. Klein ist ein charakteristischer Vertreter der Biedermeierzeit. Sein Hauptgebiet war die Genremalerei. Einflüsse der holländischen Maler und Radierer K. Dujardin (1622-1678) und A. van de Velde (1636-1672) sowie des Tiermalers J.H. Roos sind zu beobachten, die er jedoch gut umzusetzen wußte. Darüber hinaus ließ er sich von Wagenbauer, Hess und W. von Kobell (1766-1853) anregen. Zahlreiche Museen besitzen Werke von Klein, u.a. die National-Galerie Berlin, Neue Pinakothek München, Sammlung Georg Schäfer Schweinfurt, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart und die Albertina Wien.

P, 2 tableaux dépliants (au T.I) compris dans la pagination. PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de "l'oeuvre capitale de Bichat [qui] reste une pierre angulaire du savoir médical moderne." Il y développe "la notion de tissu qu'il avait définit dans Le Traité des Membranes, et l'organisme dans une vision générale de la physiologie humaine totalement nouvelle." [En français dans le texte, p. 207] Bichat (1771-1802), adepte des idées de Bordeu et de Barthez sur la force vitale, distingua cependant la vie animale de la vie organique : il plaça spécialement cette dernière dans les tissus qui enveloppent les viscères et rechercha le mode de vitalité propre à chaque tissu. "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".

        Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux de Paradis et des Rolliers, suivie de celles des Toucans et des Barbut.

      Paris, Denné le jeune/ Perlet, (1801-) 1806. 2 volumes. Large-folio (515 x 335mm). With 114 colour-printed engraved plates, with extensive gouache hand-finishing, some heightened in gold, extra illustrated with 2 original watercolours. Contemporary tree calf, richly gilt ornamented spines with bird ornaments, red and black gilt lettered labels, sides with gilt borders (bound by the Dutch bookbinder J. Froding). An exceptional Deluxe Copy of one of the most spectacular works on exotic birds, a presentation copy to Jacob Temminck. /The plates of the 'Oiseaux de Paradis...' are usually printed in colour and lightly finished by hand. Copies, as the present one, with gouache colouring and illumination on a bistre base and sometimes heightened with gold, and adding extensive foliage and branches to each plate were prepared for special presentation. These copies were extra illustrated with original watercolours and the plates are more brilliant and lively. Our copy has two original watercolours 'Tete de l'Oiseaux de Paradis grand Emeraude grandeur naturelle' and 'L'Oiseau de Paradis l'Incomparable grandeur naturelle'. Some faint occasional marginal dampstaining.//Along with his equally famous work on parrots, the 'Oiseaux de Paradis' is the pinnacle of Levaillant's achievement in book production and the finest example of Jacques Barraband's brilliance as a bird artist. Ronsil considered this work to be unequalled among French bird books. The illustrations include 24 plates of birds of paradise; 15 of rollers; 17 of jays; 18 of toucans; 24 of barbets; 5 of tamatias; 3 of barbacous; and 8 of jacamars./The plates were engraved by Pérée, Grémillier and Bouquet, after drawings by Jacques Barraband, and were printed by Langlois and Rousset. Jacques Barraband's work for Levaillant undoubtedly marks the high point of his career and makes it clear why he was considered the best ornithological artist of his generation. He was a pupil of Joseph Maline and subsequently worked as a draughtsman at the Gobelins tapestry factory. His painted porcelain was exhibited at the Paris Salons from 1798 to 1806; he also decorated the dining-room in Napoleon's chateau at St Cloud. Barraband's relatively early death at the age of 41 and the following works of Audubon and Gould have perhaps prevented him from being placed alongside his contemporary Redouté as one of the greatest natural history artists of all time. He produced over 300 beautiful watercolours for Levaillant's books./François Levaillant (1753-1824) was born in Paramaribo, the capital of Dutch Guiana, and was the son of the French Consul there. When his father returned to Europe, in 1763, he studied natural history at Metz. He was sent by the Dutch East India Company to the Cape Province of South Africa in 1781, and collected specimens there until 1784. He sent over 2,000 bird skins to Jacob Temminck, who had financed the expedition, and these were later studied by his son Conrad Jacob Temminck and are included in the collection of the museum at Leiden./"Levaillant first met Jacob Temminck (1748-1822) in 1780. Temminck had a powerful position as treasurer of the Dutch East India Company. Besides, he had a lively interest in natural history, maintaining both a cabinet and an aviary with living birds. The size of his collection at that early date is not known. However, Levaillant was impressed by this 'brilliante collection'… Temminck was the obvious person to be approached by Levaillant to help him with his plans for travelling abroad considering the similarities in age and interest, as well as Temminck's position" (Rookmaaker, The Zoological Exploration of Southern Africa 1650-1790, p. 259).//Our copy together with the 'Oiseaux d'Afrique' was sold in Paris 'Aguttes 14 April 2010' (the copies got split up later). Both items had identical bindings, and both copies were special copies with original plates inserted and clearly belonged together. The 'Oiseaux d'Afrique' has a handwritten dedication to J. Temminck and a watercolour frontispiece with a notice 'Exempl. Soignéé' (sic) and both works must have been a present to Temminck. Another presentation copy to J. Temminck is known (sale Marcel Jeanson, Sotheby's Monaco 16 June 1988), also an 'Exempl. Soigné') with extra original watercolours. Probably our copy was a present for Jacob's son Coenrad Jacob Temminck (1778-1858) first director of the Natural History Museum at Leiden.//Fine Birds Books, p. 90; Nissen IVB, 559; Ronsil 1780.

Marsh was perhaps the most prolific English composer of his time, having written at least 350 musical compositions, including 39 symphonies. While he is remembered mostly for his music, he also wrote books on astronomy, religion and geometry.RARE.

        Differenz des Fichte'schen und Schelling'schen Systems der Philosophie in Beziehung auf Reinhold's Beyträge zur leichtern Übersicht des Zustands der Philosophie zu Anfang des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts, 1stes Heft.

      - Jena, Akademische Buchhandlung, 1801. 8vo. 184 S. Neuer marmorierter Pappband im Stil d. Zeit mit Rückenschild. Seltene erste Ausgabe von Hegels philosophischem Erstling. - Reinhold hatte in der im Titel genannten Schrift behauptet, dass die "Revolution in der Philosophie schon geschehen" sei und Schelling Fichte nur wiederholt habe. Hegel zeigt dagegen deutlich die Differenz beider Systeme. Fichte suche die ursprüngliche Identität des Subjektiven und Objektiven auf der Seite des Subjekts, Schelling dagegen auf der Seite des Objekts. Zu dieser Position des objektiven oder "subjektiv-objektiven" Idealismus bekennt Hegel sich selbst, der sich hier noch ganz als Schüler Schellings fühlt, tatsächlich aber schon den nächsten dialektisch notwendigen Schritt ankündigt: Durch Hegels Schrift dürfte für Schelling allererst deutlich geworden sein, wie sehr er sich bereits von Fichte entfernt hatte. Andererseits entwirft sie bereits die Umrisse zu Hegels eigenem späteren System eines "absoluten" Idealismus. - Steinhauer 119; Schneeberger, Schelling 200; Slg Borst 896; Ruppert 3058. - Bis S. 37 u. auf S. 60 saubere Anstreichungen u. einige kritische Marginalien von alter Hand, Titel mit 2 kleinen, alt hinterlegten Fehlstellen ohne Textverlust. Gutes Exemplar. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
