        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O., 1. VII. 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.

        A scheme for improving small sums of money: showing that great part of the national specie which now lies hidden, and unimproved, may be employed to the greatest uses of Government, trade, and private persons. Exhibiting also at one view, the certain reward of virtuous and industrious servants, and the yearly profits which will arise from thus employing their wages, or any trifling sums, from one pound to twenty, &c. Which, by the blessing of God, will tend in a great measure to prevent our parishes, charitable clubs, streets, and highways from being crouded (sic) through the extremity of so many poor, needy, and unfortunate persons, as we now have.

      Rochester: printed by W. Epps, Troy-Town, 1801. 8vo, (ii) + 45 + (1)pp, complete with the half-title, original boards with a gilt morocco lettering piece on upper cover (lettered 'For improving money'). A fine copy. First and only edition: excessively rare. Goldsmiths 18292. A copy also in BL but not in Kress, Black, Williams or Cotton & Little. An interesting proposal for the establishment of a sort of national savings bank through which 'frugal people', including 'servants, manufacturers and others of inferior rank', who have saved small amounts of money can invest the money safely upon government security. The author ['J. Sidney, jun. Court-lodge, Yalding, Kent') notes the temptations which people with a bit of spare cash fall for - spending money on ill-afforded extravagances, buying lottery tickets, embarking on 'investment' schemes run by confidence tricksters and falling prey to a whole range of sharp practices. Sidney argues, rather expansively, that 'establishing such a fund would naturally have a considerable effect on the ambition of the inferior part of the people; and serve to turn it off from the epidemical madness of the age: viz. - endeavouring to outshine one another in dress, household furniture, and high living; and might turn it to a desire of rivalling one another by having most money in the stocks'.

        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

      - portrait, 448pp. Paris, Richard, 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).

        The works of the late Dr. Benjamin Franklin; consisting of his Life, written by himself. Together with essays, humorous, moral, and literary, chiefly in the manner of the Spectator.

      Philadelphia: Wm. W. Woodward 12mo (16.7 cm, 6.6"). Frontis., 321, [11] pp.. 1801 Early American edition of the "unofficial" but extremely popular Life, re-translated into English from the French publication and released despite William Temple Franklin's attempts to suppress any version other than his own. This example comprises two volumes in one, opening with an engraved portrait of Franklin signed by Tanner and featuring an addition "not in any other Edition," according to the title-page: "An Examination, before the British House of Lords, respecting the Stamp-Act." At the back are a six-page list of subscribers and four pages of advertisements for Woodward publications. Contemporary treed sheep, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label; spine extremities a little chipped, front cover a little sprung, hinges (inside) reinforced. Frontispiece and title-page tattered and now mounted, with outer margin of first preface page repaired; a number of corners bumped or dog-eared, with a few in one section at some point delicately rodent(?)-nibbled. Subscribers' list trimmed closely, affecting two names only; pages age-toned with intermittent foxing. In fact, though not "excellent," quite "satisfactory.

        Disertacion critico-theo-filosofica sobre la conservacion de la santa imagen de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles

      Mexico: Mariano Joseph de Zuñiga y Ontiveros Small 4to (19 cm; 7.5"). [9] ff., 138 pp.. 1801 Patiño was probably born in Orizaba and as an adult became a Discalced Franciscan. Here he studies the image of Nuestra Señora de los Angeles (a lienzo, on cloth), said to have been both miraculously endowed with special powers and equally miraculously preserved over time. Assaying miracles in general at length, dividing them into true and false miracles and explaining how one determines into which category a "miracle" falls — but whether any true ones can be assigned to the image in question is not explicitly stated! The widely publicized version of the origin of the painting is that during the tremendous floods of 1580, Isayoque, a cacique of Coatlan (near Tlatiollco), found the painting floating on the flood waters and built a chapel in which to venerate it. That the image survived many vicissitudes is ascribed to the preserving hand of God: waters of the flood, the neglect over time of the chapel, its destruction in the great earthquake of 1776, the failures to rebuild in a timely way, etc. Reading between the lines, it is clear that Patiño, who preached at the chapel on Sundays, wrote this account with a secondary purpose: to raise money for the completion of the rebuilding of the chapel and the preservation of the image. Provenance: "Del Refectorio" in a fine hand at top of title-page. Early 19th-century quarter sheep with green and black mottled paper sides, boards rubbed and abraded with leather unevenly aged. Internally a very clean, tight copy.

        Asia

      London: Aaron Arrowsmith, 1801. Engraved map of Asia, on four sheets, joined to form a pair of large sheets, period hand colouring in outline. One of the finest early 19th century maps of Asia by one of the greatest English cartographers. Aaron Arrowsmith was the founder of one of the leading London map publishing houses in the early part of the nineteenth century. He came to London about 1770 from Durham, his birthplace, and worked as a surveyor for John Cary for whom he carried out some of the road surveys which subsequently appeared in Cary's Travellers' Companion in 1790. In that year he set up his own business in Long Acre and soon established an international reputation. "Aaron Arrowsmith, Hydrographer to the King of England and Geographer to the Prince of Wales, was the most influential and respected map publishers of the first quarter of the nineteenth century ... His role in cartographic production was to gather the best information available from a wide variety of sources, weigh the relative merits of conflicting data, and compile from this the most accurate depiction possible of an area. Arrowsmith accomplished this synthesis better than any other commercial map maker of his day and, as a result, his maps were the most sought after and highly prized on three continents" (Martin & Martin, p. 113.) Arrowsmith specialized in monumental multi-sheet maps. These were generally separately issued and are now scarce. One of his greatest enterprises, the present four-sheet map of Asia, would have been compiled by Arrowsmith from the most advanced sources. Arrowsmith's rendering of India was shaped by the supremely accurate work which had been carried out by Major James Rennell, to whom Arrowsmith dedicated this map. Rennell carried out a thirteen year survey of Bengal, from 1764 to 1776, and at the time of the publication of this work was the leading geographer of England.

        48 Preludes et Fugues dans tous les tons tant majeurs, que mineurs pour le Clavecin ou Piano-Forte composés par Jean Sebastien Bach. I (- II) Partie. In zwei Bänden.

Deckeltiteln auf Papierschilden. Etwas fleckig, Ecken etwas bestoßen, Rückenbezüge mit Einrissen und Fehlstellen, ebda Papieraufkleber später mit Filmoplaststreifen fixiert. Erste Ausgabe (BWV 846 – 893; RISM BB 498 A/B). – Block jeweils mehrfach gebrochen, in der unteren Ecke etwas fleckig, erster Titel mit kleinem, Loch (Papierfehler) in der unteren Ecke. Ein Vorbesitzer hat um 1900 an Innendeckel, Vorsatz und erste weiße S. Zeitungsartikel bzw. eine Kopie von Bachs autogr. Titel von 1722 geklebt, Titel von II. deshalb teils etwas gebräunt. Von BACHs 48 Präludien und Fugen, die als „Das Wohltemperierte Klavier“ heute weltbekannt und ein Meilenstein der Musikgeschichte sind, kursierten im 18.Jahrhundert nur verschiedene Handschriften. Im Jahr 1801 erschienen dann gleich in drei Verlagen Drucke, die alle als erste Ausgaben gelten, jedoch herrscht heute weitgehend Übereinstimmung darin, dass das erste Heft der Simrockschen Ausgabe das früheste ist. Davon wiederum lassen sich verschiedene Varianten nachweisen, die Yo Tomita (The Simrock Edition of the Well-Tempered Clavier II; Internet) anhand der unterschiedlichen Titelblattgestaltung und etlicher Unterschiede in den Kupferplatten differenziert. Er bezeichnet denjenigen mit Impressum „à Paris, chez les addresses ordinaires [d.i. eine Filiale des Verlags Simrock] / à Bonn, chez N.Simrock“ als Editio princeps, unser Impressum als späteren Druck. Jedoch hat unser Exemplar sämtliche weiteren von Tomita genannten Kennzeichen des ersten Drucks (s.Abb.), darunter auch die Verwechslung der Teile. Besonders die noch unkorrigierte falsche Plattennummer 183 (statt 138) auf S.7 widerspricht dieser Bewertung entschieden und kaum erklärbar, denn lt. Tomita wurde dieser Fehler schnell bemerkt und korrigiert, anfangs durch Entfernen der Nummer und später durch Ergänzung der richtigen. Unser Exemplar hat darüberhinaus noch ganz Text und Noten, wie sie C.G. NEEFE, der musikalische Lehrer BEETHOVENs (der das Werk so kennenlernte und einen Druck mit unserem Impressum besaß) redigiert hatte. Etliche Unstimmigkeiten darin wurden bald bemerkt und in den Platten korrigiert. Bei den relativ wenigen in Bibliotheken nachweisbaren Exemplaren fällt auf, dass in deutschen fast nur solche mit unserem Impressum zu finden sind, in ausländischen dagegen das mit zusätzlicher Nennung der Pariser Filiale.

        Vida de San Felipe de Jesus protomartir de Japon y patron de su patria Mexico.

      Mexico: Montes de Oca ... Calle del. Baustisterio de S. Catalina m.e n.o 3 4to (23 cm; 9"). [1] f., 28 [of 30] plts.. 1801 With this work Montes de Oca secured for himself the position of the most important and talented engraver in the New World at the beginning of the 19th century. He conceived and => self-published this, the first entirely engraved book printed in the Americas. In a series of 30 plates with captions he told the biography of St. Philip of Jesus (1572–97), the protomartyr of Japan. This is a rare book with only nine U.S. libraries reporting ownership: Several of those copies are lacking either one, two, or three of the plates, and it is certain that the book was issued unbound, as a gathering of 31 individual leaves, thus accounting for copies with less than the "requisite" engraved title and 30 plates. This copy in fact => confirms that the plates spent part of their lives unbound, as two of them are touched by small instances of worming that have not touched their next neighbors! Montes de Oca's plates are particularly detailed and moving when they show the saint in Japan being abused and tortured, but all are strong and striking. => Uncut copy. Late 19th-century plain sheep binding. Uncut; lacking two plates and two with minor worming as noted above; all plates well impressed, as would be expected of a work that the artist himself saw through the press! A very good copy of a scarce and important work.

        Manuscipt. A copy book of personal and business correspondence.

      Bogotá Folio (32 cm; 12.5"). [130] ff.. 1801–10 Sánchez Borda (1772–1817) was a Bogotá merchant. His copy book begins 20 September 1801 with a letter to his mother, Inés María de la Borda y Betancourt, telling of his grief upon receiving her letter announcing the death of his brother Francisco Antonio Sánchez de la Borda (1758–1801), a priest; and it ends with a note that on 15 February 1810 at 6:30 A.M. his son Ramón Policarpo was born. On the 256 intervening pages Sánchez B. has recorded hundreds of business dealings with suppliers and other merchants. He specialized in fine clothing but also dealt in gems (at least one diamond ring, many garnets), salt, books, cloth (silk, taffeta, etc.), and many, many other commodities. The volume gives an excellent view of who his suppliers were, the terms on which he conducted business, the types of goods available in Colombia and most especially Bogotá, and the amount of travel that this one merchant engaged in while maintaining a store in the capital. Scattered here and there in the volume are individual accountings of monies owed to him and letters he wrote attempting to have bills paid. There are also => letters to family members, especially having to do with money being sent, loaned, or repaid; notations of the birth or death of a child, and general news. Curiously, there is no mention of political events. Bound in repurposed vellum over cardboards; remnants of leather ties. Written on different stocks of paper with some small variation in size; ink used varies over time from near black to very pale sepia. Sánchez Borda's hand is an easy one but when the ink is faint, or there is significant show-through of ink from the leaf's other side, some effort must be expended to read the text. => This manuscript invites quite a variety of researches.

Lysons’s own copy, inscribed by his brother after his death to his son, with two autograph letters; a magnificent copy of “Lysons’ splendid work”. (Lowndes). 'Only 200 copies of the whole Work have been printed off, and most of the Plates cancelled; not with the view of making a scarce book, but from the great difficulty of getting even that number properly coloured under the Editor's inspection' (Advertisement to present work). In fact, according to Lysons’s own records 70 copies at most were completed and Colin Franklin (The Books Collector, 2014) notes that one source records only twelve copies completed. This, Lysons' own copy, was last seen at the Jeudwine sale, Bloomsbury, 29 Nov. 1984, lot 370.

        Systema Eleutheratorum secundum ordines, genera, species adiectis synonymis, locis, observationibus, descriptionibus

      Impensis Bibliopolii Academici Novi, Kiliae 1801 - Two volumes, thick octavo, neat library stamps to both titles, occasional early manuscript annotations; an excellent set in contemporary glazed paper boards, gilt, bumped. A particularly handsome set of the first work by Fabricius to incorporate the newly discovered species collected on the d'Entrecasteaux/Labillardiére voyage.An impressive 36 specimens noted here are from Australia alone, with specimens collected in each of their three main ports of call: the lower east coast of the mainland, the southern coast of western Australia, and Van Diemen's Land. Any number of insects were also collected in other Asian and Pacific locations on the voyage, marking this book as one of the earliest and most significant works of entomology to include Pacific specimens.D'Entrecasteaux had sailed with orders to search for La Perouse, but the voyage is now remembered chiefly for the important Australian and Pacific natural history that they collected, and particularly for the botanical specimens that returned to France. As this, and the following works by Fabricius attest, Labillardiére and his fellow natural historians were assiduous in collecting specimens of all varieties from major mammals right through to smaller insects. The insects noted here were 'collected by Labillardiére and Riche, botanists to the Expedition? which visited W. Australia and Tasmania. Most of these species are cited from Nova Cambria [that is, New South Wales] and Australasia, with one exception from Van Diemen's Land' (Anthony Musgrave). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        George Washington

      1801. Mezzotint portrait, state II of 2, sheet size: 27 7/8 x 21 1/2 inches, image size: 26 3/8 x 20 inches. In good condition, trimmed within the plate mark and backed onto archival tissue, small repaired tears. A fine early American mezzotint of the 'Landsdowne Portrait" of the Father of the Nation This stunning image is based on James Heath's engraving after Gilbert Stuart's famous portrait of Washington. Stuart's painting, done in 1796, is known as the Lansdowne Portrait because it was a gift to the Marquis of Lansdowne, an English supporter of American independence, from Senator and Mrs. William Bingham of Pennsylvania. The painting was quickly reproduced by the British engraver James Heath without Stuart's consent, an act that infuriated Stuart who had hoped to control the rights to the engraving and thus garner some profit from the publication and sale of the print. Despite his condemnation, Heath's engraving established Stuart's painting as the official image of Washington and set a style for portraying Washington's successors in the White House. Edward Savage is considered one of the most important artists of the early Federal period in America. A self-taught painter and engraver, Savage was also the proprietor of a succession of galleries in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston, where he exhibited his own paintings and patriotic prints. This print is Edward Savage's masterly version of Heath's famous image. Hart describes a print by Savage that matches this mezzotint of Washington, with lettering, which according to Hart should read 'E. Savage Execu: td 1801'. The present example supports Hart's claim that in most copies of this print the date is barely visible. Cf. Cunningham Popular Images of the Presidency: From Washington to Lincoln pp.135-139; Hart Catalogue of Engraved Portraits of Washington 293; Stauffer ii, 2755cf.

        A FUNERAL ORATION, OCCASIONED BY THE DEATH OF EPHRAIM SIMONDS, OF TEMPLETON, MASSACHUSETTS, A MEMBER OF THE SENIOR CLASS IN DARTMOUTH COLLEGE; WHO DIED AT HANOVER, (N.H.) ON THE 18th OF JUNE 1801, ∆T. 26

      Hanover: By Moses Davis, 1801. Half title within funereal borders. Original printed self- wrappers, stitched. Light tanning, trimmed (but not affecting pagination or text). Overall in near fine condition. In a half morocco and cloth box. The second published work of Daniel Webster, preceded only by a 4th of July oration he delivered at Dartmouth in 1800, when he was a member of the junior class. That oration was also printed by Moses Davis in Hanover, and it appears to be more common than the present funeral speech, which is located in only ten copies by Shaw & Shoemaker and OCLC. Webster was only nineteen when he delivered the present address, but his performances in the Dartmouth College debating societies had already earned him a reputation as a powerful speaker. Webster and Ephraim Simonds were classmates, friends, and fellow members of Phi Beta Kappa. Webster's language is florid and a bit overly dramatic (in the style of the day), but also shows glimpses of the style that made him the most famous orator of his day. The final page of text contains the text of an ode, composed and set to music for Ephraim Simonds' funeral. Robert Remini says that while Webster gave several speeches during his Dartmouth days, this Simonds oration "was the most remarkable for its unaffected directness, compelling emotion, and strong religious feeling." A scarce and very attractive copy of this seminal Webster speech. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 1629. OCLC 6286761. Robert Remini, DANIEL WEBSTER: THE MAN AND HIS TIMES (New York, 1997), p.54. Clifford B. Clapp, "The Speeches of Daniel Webster" in THE PAPERS OF THE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA, Vol. 13, (1919), pp.3-63, especially pp.13-14.

      London, 1801. Half title. Quarto. Late nineteenth-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, minor wear to boards, corners repaired. Contemporary bookplate and later ownership inscription on front pastedown. Scattered foxing and toning. Very good. This classic of North American exploration describes the extraordinary travels of the author in northwest America in 1789, when he discovered the Mackenzie River, and in 1793, when he crossed the continent to the Pacific. Mackenzie also provides an excellent history of the fur trade in Canada as well as vocabularies of several Indian languages. The "Map of Mackenzie's track from Ft. Chipewyan to the Pacific Ocean in 1793" was a milestone and, as Wheat says, "at once questions began to be raised about the now patent inadequacies of all prior maps of the American Far West."

        THE MINSTREL; OR, THE PROGRESS OF GENIUS. WITH SOME OTHER POEMS

      London: Printed for J. Mawman, 1801. n. Hardcover. mm (). 4 p.l., 120 pp. Contemporary red straight-grain morocco, covers with gilt-ruled border, flat spine divided into panels by single gilt rule, gilt titling, turn-ins with decorative bead roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. WITH A PLEASING FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE HARBOR AND SEASIDE TOWN OF WHITBY. In an excellent brown morocco pull-off case by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for J. W. Robinson Company. With four engravings depicting scenes from "The Minstrel." Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of John Ashley Warre. Spine slightly and uniformly sunned to a darker red, joints and extremities a bit rubbed (though well masked with dye), paper faintly toned, light offsetting, occasional spotting or staining, but still quite a decent copy, the binding solid and lustrous, the text smooth and fresh, and the painting very well preserved. The very pleasing fore-edge painting here has depth and movement, from the fisherman on shore in the foreground to the cresting waves in the harbor and the ships bobbing in the distance. The ruins of the great abbey tower over the scene, and the lighthouse stands tall at the edge of the shore. The precipitous cliffs, rolling hills, and curving shoreline provide an undulant frame for the choppy sea. A Scottish poet and professor of moral philosophy, Beattie (1735-1803) is best remembered for the title poem here, an unfinished work in Spenserian stanzas that was first printed in 1771-74. As perhaps the first work in English that might properly be entitled "The Growth of a Poet's Mind," his "Minstrel" anticipates Wordsworth's "Prelude," and its emphasis on the great benefits of solitude represents an early manifestation of one of the key notions of Romanticism. Former owner John Ashley Warre (1787-1860) was a scion of the famous port-trading family and a long-serving member of Parliament for the Liberal Party.

        Systema Eleutheratorum secundum ordines, genera, species adiectis synonymis, locis, observationibus, descriptionibus

      Kiliae: Impensis Bibliopolii Academici Novi, 1801. Two volumes, thick octavo, neat library stamps to both titles, occasional early manuscript annotations; an excellent set in contemporary glazed paper boards, gilt, bumped. A particularly handsome set of the first work by Fabricius to incorporate the newly discovered species collected on the d'Entrecasteaux/Labillardiére voyage.An impressive 36 specimens noted here are from Australia alone, with specimens collected in each of their three main ports of call: the lower east coast of the mainland, the southern coast of western Australia, and Van Diemen's Land. Any number of insects were also collected in other Asian and Pacific locations on the voyage, marking this book as one of the earliest and most significant works of entomology to include Pacific specimens.D'Entrecasteaux had sailed with orders to search for La Perouse, but the voyage is now remembered chiefly for the important Australian and Pacific natural history that they collected, and particularly for the botanical specimens that returned to France. As this, and the following works by Fabricius attest, Labillardiére and his fellow natural historians were assiduous in collecting specimens of all varieties from major mammals right through to smaller insects. The insects noted here were 'collected by Labillardiére and Riche, botanists to the Expedition... which visited W. Australia and Tasmania. Most of these species are cited from Nova Cambria [that is, New South Wales] and Australasia, with one exception from Van Diemen's Land' (Anthony Musgrave).

      London: Printed For T. Cadell, Jun. And W. Davies, Strand; And W. Creech, Edinburgh. 1801. 'The Second Edition.' Octavo, four volumes: viii, 339 p., portrait front.; xiii, 467; xvi, 431; xxiv, 415 p. Edited by Dr. James Currie, who was not qualified and didn't want to do it.

Attractively bound.Schmid was a Christian publisher of Hebrew books who benefited greatly from an 1800 ordinance prohibiting the import of Hebrew books by Jews (who were themselves excluded from the publishing business). He did employ a number of Jewish typesetters and proofreaders, mainly from Galicia, who were granted special residence permits in Vienna (Encyclopaedia Judaica, I:978). “Schmid issued a number of printings of the Haggadah utilizing the delicately engraved popular illustrations of Abraham bar Jacob [which first appeared in the Amsterdam 1695 Haggadah]… Two popular commentaries by Moses Alscheikh and Ephraim Luntschitz added to the popular illustrations made for many editions” (Karp, From the Ends of the Earth: Judaic Treasures of the Library of Congress, 103). Among the illustrations are the famous 13-panel stages of the Seder and the ten-panel depiction of the ten plagues. Title page within decorative typographical border. Upper two-thirds of title page mounted and remargined, with lower third supplied in a neat facsimile. Numerous skilled paper repairs/remarginings throughout text, generally not affecting text or illustrations. Expected wine stains and other signs of ritual use.

        THE MINSTREL; OR, THE PROGRESS OF GENIUS. WITH SOME OTHER POEMS

      Printed for J. Mawman, London 1801 - mm (). 4 p.l., 120 pp. Contemporary red straight-grain morocco, covers with gilt-ruled border, flat spine divided into panels by single gilt rule, gilt titling, turn-ins with decorative bead roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. WITH A PLEASING FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE HARBOR AND SEASIDE TOWN OF WHITBY. In an excellent brown morocco pull-off case by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for J. W. Robinson Company. With four engravings depicting scenes from "The Minstrel." Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of John Ashley Warre. Spine slightly and uniformly sunned to a darker red, joints and extremities a bit rubbed (though well masked with dye), paper faintly toned, light offsetting, occasional spotting or staining, but still quite a decent copy, the binding solid and lustrous, the text smooth and fresh, and the painting very well preserved. The very pleasing fore-edge painting here has depth and movement, from the fisherman on shore in the foreground to the cresting waves in the harbor and the ships bobbing in the distance. The ruins of the great abbey tower over the scene, and the lighthouse stands tall at the edge of the shore. The precipitous cliffs, rolling hills, and curving shoreline provide an undulant frame for the choppy sea. A Scottish poet and professor of moral philosophy, Beattie (1735-1803) is best remembered for the title poem here, an unfinished work in Spenserian stanzas that was first printed in 1771-74. As perhaps the first work in English that might properly be entitled "The Growth of a Poet's Mind," his "Minstrel" anticipates Wordsworth's "Prelude," and its emphasis on the great benefits of solitude represents an early manifestation of one of the key notions of Romanticism. Former owner John Ashley Warre (1787-1860) was a scion of the famous port-trading family and a long-serving member of Parliament for the Liberal Party. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Gesammelte Nachrichten über die Belagerung von Gibraltar von 1779 bis 1783. (Titelblatt) - Deutsche Handschrift.

      Einbeck, Dezember 1801. 199 beidseitig in schwarzer Tinte beschriebene Blätter, auf gutem Schreibpapier. Pappband d. Zt. mit Grünschnitt. 21 x 17 cm. \"Gegenwärtige Nachschriften über die Belagerung von Gibraltar sind als eine gekürzte, hie und da veränderte Abschrift von den Briefen anzusehen, welche der Amtmann Friedrichs, der als Auditeur bei dem Sydowschen Regimente ein Augenzeuge von dieser Begebenheit war, in einigen Jahrgängen des hannöverschen Magazins herausgegeben hat. Man hat sich bemüht, dieselbe durch vorgefundene schriftliche Nachrichten, durch die Drinkwaterschen Auszüge (siehe das militärische Journal 4. Und 5. Stück von 1789 und 1790) und durch mehrere Auszüge aus andern Büchern zu ergänzen\" (Vorrede). - Die große Belagerung von Gibraltar von 1779 bis 1783 war der letzte vergebliche Versuch, die Stadt und Festung Gibraltar den Briten gewaltsam zu entreißen. Der Angriff Spaniens auf den Felsen war von der Hoffnung getragen, das Großbritannien durch den amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitskrieg dort zu viele Truppen gebunden habe und es damit eine leicht Beute werden würde; der britische Kommandeur George Eliott hatte allerdings vorausblickend die Anzahl der Geschütze deutlich erhöht und u. a. Zivilisten zur Bedienung trainiert. Unter den auf Gibraltar stationierten Truppen war auch eine Einheit aus dem Kurfürstentum Hannover unter dem Kommando von August de la Motte. Von Angehörigen dieser Einheit stammen die dramatischen Text aus der Zeit der Belagerung und der Abwehr der spanischen Armee, die hier in Abschriften gedruckter und wohl auch ungedruckter Berichte vorliegen. - Beiliegt der bekannte illustr. Einblattdruck: \"Prospect von Gibraltar mit seinen Werken, umliegenden Gegenden und ietzigen neuern Belagerungs-Anstalten, gez. vor Gibraltar im Jahre 1782, Daniel Berger, Berlin\", mit der seltenen, unten angefügten typographischen Beschreibung der gest. Ansicht. Gesamtgr.: 42 x 32 cm. - Einband des Manuskripts bestoßen, Textbll. teils gebräunt. Der Einblattdruck mehrfach gefaltet, etwas fleckig und am Rand mit einigen kürzeren Einrissen.

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

      1801 - de (4), 1 portrait et 100 Paris, Goujon fils, 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. Bel exemplaire, propre. Norman, I, p. 418, n° 1144. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Red-bellied Macaw (L'Ara Macavouanne)

      Paris, 1801. Colour-printed stipple engraving, finished by hand, engraved by Bouquet, printed by Langlois. This print is from an apparently unrecorded issue of Levaillant's Perroquets published on large format paper (probably 'papier vélin colombier satiné'), with a scratch proof of the title and plate number, but otherwise avant-lettre. This issue is not recorded in any of the standard bibliographies. 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).
