Contemporary half calf, gilt lettered spines with marbled boards (repair to head of spine of second volume). Fabricius was one of the most famous pupils of Linnaeus. He greatly increased the knowledge of entomology, and described some 10.000 insects. "Two basic principles guided Fabricius' approach to entomological systematics: he distinguished, on the one hand, between the artificial and the natural characters; and, on the other hand, he stressed the importance of the various structures of the mouth." (DSB IV, p. 512). In his works Fabricius described many Australian and New Zealand insects brought back by Captain Cook's around -the-world voyages.Provenance: Bookplates of Charles Alluaud and J. d'Aguilar.Horn-Schenkling I, 6215.

Content in small hand filling three pages. Item accompanied by typed transcription. * This appears to be a document from an unrecorded rape case. It reads, in part: "We the grand jurors...have become satisfied that the following persons are also guilty of a wicked and felonious rape, upon the body of Nancy Burns viz., Wm. Harper, Lorentine Miller, David McCummins and that proper measures be pursued for the arrest and punishment of these persons, whom we also learn have fled the country. The grand jurors further present, that ample proof has been given before them to show that some persons whose name are unknown to them have by bribes, threats and alarms, spirited away one of two or three very important witnesses in this very important matter..."

        Von dem politischen Zustande von Europa vor und nach der Französischen Revoluzion.

      - Eine Prüfung des Buches: De l'état de la France à la fin de l'an VIII [von Alex. Maurice Blanc d'Hauterive]. Berlin, bei Heinrich Frölich, 1801. XXVIII, 226 S., 4 Bl., S. 227-386, 3 Bl. Marmorierter Pappbd. d. Zt. mit Rückenschild. Erste Ausgabe einer der frühen politischen Hauptschriften. »Erst seit der Kriegspolitik Bonapartes kam bei Gentz ein politischer Realismus zum Durchbruch; aus dem pazifistischen Streiter wider die Prinzipien der Französischen Revolution wurde der Herold des Kampfes um die Wiederherstellung der politischen Grundordnung Europas, des von Frankreich zerstörten Gleichgewichts der Mächte. Ließ schon diese Tendenz die preußische Regierung abrupt von Gentz abrücken, so gefährdete er seine Sonderstellung in Preußen, als er 1801 die von Hauterive verkündete Europapolitik des bonapartistischen Frankreich desillusionierte, England als den Hort der Freiheit pries und die Überwindung des deutschen Dualismus forderte, um den Kontinent vor einer Unterwerfung durch den Hegemoniewillen Napoleons zu bewahren.« (H.

        VOYAGE DANS LA HAUTE PENSYLVANIE ET DANS L'ÉTAT DE NEW- YORK...PAR UN MEMBRE ADOPTIF DE LA NATION ONÉIDA. TRADUIT ET PUBLIÉ PAR L'AUTEUR DES LETTRES D'UN CULTIVATEUR AMÉRICAIN

      Paris, 1801. Half title in each volume. Modern three-quarter tan calf and marbled boards, spines gilt, leather labels. Occasional age-toning, but very neat and clean. A near fine set. The first edition of this little-known work by Crèvecoeur, which was not translated into English until the 1960s. A German edition appeared in 1802. Despite the wording in the title, this is an original work by Crèvecoeur, offered under the guise of a translation. The author spent twenty-four years in North America and contributed some of the finest literature of the Revolutionary era. The present work is largely devoted to the Indians of the Pennsylvania frontier in the period before the arrival of Europeans in that region. Unfairly overlooked at the time of its publication, the work presents much interesting and important information. Modern scholars (see THE WILLIAM & MARY QUARTERLY issue cited below) have placed Crèvecoeur's LETTERS FROM AN AMERICAN FARMER... and his short study of the Caribbean firmly in the school of the 18th-century philosophers interested in "global anthropology" and "cultural geography." The present work, focused as it is on the characteristics and customs of American Indians, would seem to be a further important contribution by Crèvecoeur to that movement. "This work is distinguished by its valuable details on the aboriginal tribes, and their gradual disappearance. No other writer has so well described the Indian great councils, or assemblies, where they deliberate on their public interests" - Sabin. A number of the plates are handsome depictions of Indian chiefs and warriors, and ancient fortifications. The frontispiece portrait in the first volume is of George Washington, to whom the VOYAGE... is dedicated. The well-executed maps are detailed renderings of the eastern and southern United States, Niagara, and the Great Lakes region.

        Proceedings of the General Society of the Cincinnati, with the original institution of the Order.

      Philadelphia: Pr. by John Ormrod 8vo. 82 pp.. 1801 At its founding, the Society or Order of the Cincinnati was composed of the regular army officers who had fought at some length and in specific prominent theaters for American independence, equality, and freedom; future members were to be drawn from among their sons only. By the time that the Society published its second constitution, the Order had changed its membership rules to admit militia and other officers and then their heirs — diluting its elite nature though not renouncing it. This publication demonstrates that compositional change among many others, as it traces the Society via its own documents from its founding at the "Cantonment of the American Army, on Hudson's River, 10th May, 1783," through the incorporation of the Pennsylvania branch, to the death of Gen. Washington. Included here are the by-laws of the Pennsylvania chapter. Sewn, as issued. Front wrapper missing, rear wrapper present. A few spots of waterstaining. Uncut copy. New protective paper corset provided and the whole housed in a cloth clam shell case with a leather spine label lettered in gilt. A very good copy.

Fecit / d 3t octobr. 1801». 16,9:21,4 cm. – Verso mehrere Bleistiftstudien von Füßen. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Goethe und die Kunst. Hrsg. von S. Schulze. Frankfurt am Main, Schirn Kunsthalle, 1994, Nr. 169 mit Farbabb. „Bei Urlaub erhält die bürgerliche Genredarstellung eine etwas frivole Note, die dem französischen Rokoko Rechnung trägt und einen pikanten Gegensatz zu der eher biederen Auffassung der Frankfurter Maler bildet." (Op. cit. S. 241). Neben seinem Onkel Georg Anton (1713-1759) und seinem Bruder Georg Anton Abraham Urlaub (1744-1788) ist Georg Anton das bedeutendste Mitglied der berühmten Malerfamilie. Er malte Bildnisse, historische und mythologische Darstellungen, militärische Szenen und Genrebilder. Als Bildnismaler war er einer der ersten, die seine Figuren in die natürliche Landschaft stellte. Er gilt als liebenswürdiger Meister des ausgehenden Rokoko und des frühen Klassizismus.

        VIDA DE SAN FELIPE DE JESUS PROTOMARTIR DEL JAPON Y PATRON DE SU PATRIA MEXICO SE GRAVO EL ANO DE 1801 MONTES DE OCA LA INVENTO I GRABO

      Mexico, 1801. Small quarto. Modern Mexican calf, spine gilt. Internally clean. Fine. Series of thirty beautiful and, for that period, advanced engravings by Montes de Oca depicting the life of the patron saint of Mexico, San Felipe de Jesus. Born in Mexico City in 1575, he travelled to Manila, where he became a priest. In a series of delicately rendered engravings of real power, this work depicts the life of Felipe de Jesus at full length. The first twelve plates depict his early life and call to God. The next ten plates depict his shipwreck in Japan, near Nagasaki, his persecutors, and death by crucifixion at the hands of the Japanese. The last five plates record his beatification in 1627 and miracles attributed to him. Montes de Oca was a major figure among engravers and book illustrators in the fourth quarter of the 18th and the first quarter of the 19th centuries, and this VIDA DE SAN FELIPE DE JESUS is his finest, most ambitious, and most extensive work. This work is entirely engraved, including the explanatory text below each well conceived and well executed illustration, making it the first book printed in Mexico not from moveable type. Many copies appear lacking one or two plates, but this has the full complement of thirty, plus the engraved titlepage. An uncommon and lovely work. Medina records another later edition, but this first edition is unrecorded.

        Zur vergleichenden Physiologie des Gesichtssinnes des Menschen und der Thiere nebst einem Versuch über die Bewegung der Augen und über den menschlichen Blick.

      FIRST EDITION. The foundations of experimental sense-physiology.Johannes Müller (1801-1858) was only 25 years old when this substantial work was published. It records his discovery that each sensory system responds to various stimuli only in a fixed, characteristic way--or, as Müller stated, with the energy specific to itself: the eye always with a sensation of light, the ear always with a sensation of sound, and so forth. This "law of specific nerve energies" led to the insight that man does not perceive the processes of the external world but only the alterations they produce in his sensory systems. The book contains a wealth of new findings on human and animal vision, brilliant investigations into the compound eyes of insects and crabs, and truly perceptive analyses of human sight, including, on p. 73, the famous explanation of the colour sensations produced by pressure on the retina.G&M 1257 and 1495. Nodenskiöld, History of biology, pp. 383-384. McHenry, Garrison's history of neurology, p. 201.

        Poems.

      London: Printed for the Author [by T. Bensley]; and Sold by Longman and Rees. 1801 - 8vo., [10], lxix - lxxiv, 332pp. With half-title and the numerous cancels. Original blue boards, paper label, uncut. Clean tear in S3 with no loss of text otherwise a fine copy in the original state as issued. Jackson, Annals of English Verse p. 255. First edition. CtY, PPL, MH, RPB in NUC. In 1798 was issued "Proposals for publishing by subscription, in three volumes octavo, price one guinea, the poetical works of George Dyer" (L only in ESTC.) In 1800 Poems, by George Dyer duly appeared. This, however, consisted only of the titlepage and preface, containing an Essay on the Nature of Lyric Poetry: (lxviiip.; 8ø). Two copies survive: The British Library copy which ESTC notes has "MS. additions, by S. T. Coleridge"; NUC adds a copy, apparently owned by Southey. In the present edition of 1801, the preface, which was all that had appeared of the projected 1800 edition, was suppressed. All this is made clear by Dyer in the "Advertisement" to the present edition where he describes the Preface as "not only written, but. actually printed off. [but] .for many reasons. cancelled." This makes clear why the "introductory poems", with which the new book starts, (after the 10 unnumbered introductory leaves) begins, oddly, on page lxix. A rare and bibliographically complex volume; our copy has a number of manuscript corrections (quite possibly authorial) in addition to the printed errata (itself corrected in manuscript) and numerous cancels. George Dyer (1755-1841) was friend and mentor of both Coleridge and Lamb (his narrow escape from drowning was the occasion of Lamb's essay, 'Amicus Redivivus'). His learning was vast, his manners and appearance mildly eccentric, but he attracted no enemies. Amongst the poems in this volume are: "Ode to Melancholy", "Ode written in the cloisters of Christ-Hospital in London", "On visiting the Tomb of David Hume.", "On Genius, on taking leave of Dr. Priestly, when preparing to go to America", "To the Nightingale", "To Dr. Samuel Parr", "The Balance. To Brand Hollis." In a long poem, "Poetic Sympathies", Dyer makes reference to Southey's Joan of Arc "a volume of poems with an introductory sonnet to Mary Wollstonecraft", to Lyrical Ballads and to "the domestic grief and social bliss" characteristics of "a volume of poems, the joint production of Coleridge, Lamb, and Lloyd."

        NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA. WITH AN APPENDIX

      New York, 1801. Contemporary calf; rebacked, spine gilt. Corners worn and repaired. Light toning and scattered foxing. A good, solid copy. The self-styled "third American edition," although there were actually five American editions published before this one. NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime. It has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." It was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. The portrait of Jefferson was engraved by John Scoles, and is pictured and described in Cunningham's THE IMAGE OF THOMAS JEFFERSON IN THE PUBLIC EYE.... This is only the second American edition of Jefferson's NOTES... with a map. The map which accompanies this copy is the Samuel Lewis map of Virginia, printed in New York in 1794. This is the same map which accompanies the 1794 New York edition, the first American edition of the NOTES... to have a map.

        The Works;

      Philadelphia: Wm. W. Woodward,, 1801. Consisting of His Life, Written by Himself. Together with Essays, Humorous, Moral, and Literary. Chiefly in the manner of the Spectator. To which is added, not in any other Edition, An Examination, before the British House of Lords, respecting the Stamp-Act. Duodecimo (169 x 98 mm). Bound by Taffin-Lefort in red crushed morocco, raised bands, titles and decorations to compartments gilt, floral frames to boards gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Engraved frontispiece portrait by Tanner. Extremities very slightly rubbed, occasional mild spotting to margins of text block. An excellent copy. Later American edition of this collection of Franklin's memoir and miscellaneous essays. Originally published in London in 1793, the first American edition was published in New York a year later. Discussing the first British edition, P. L. Ford writes that "owing to the non-appearance of Temple Franklin's edition [of his grandfather's writings], this re-translation of the autobiography and the collection of essays has become the 'popular' and one might almost say 'chap-book' edition of Franklin's 'Life and Writings'" (Ford, pp. 205-7).

        COMMUNICATIONS CONCERNING THE AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: BEING AN AUXILIARY TO A REPORT MADE BY WILLIAM STRICKLAND... [bound with:] COMMUNICATIONS CONCERNING THE AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE OF AMERICA: CONTAINING OBSERVATIONS ON THE COMMERCE OF SPAIN WITH HER AMERICAN COLONIES IN TIME OF WAR. [bound with:] AUXILIARY REMARKS ON AN ESSAY ON THE 'COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGES OF OXEN FOR TILLAGE IN COMPETITION WITH HORSES.'

      London, 1801. Antique half calf and marbled boards. Very clean, near fine. A sammelband of three rare works by William Tatham, English geographer and engineer who left Cumberland for Virginia to seek his fortune in 1769. In 1776, he moved to the Watauga settlement in the Tennessee country and fought on the American side in the Revolutionary War until 1781. Later, he wrote a topographical study of Virginia, then returned to England to publish a number of works on agricultural and engineering subjects (including the three works here). In the first of these works, COMMUNICATIONS CONCERNING THE AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA..., Tatham critiques Strickland by noting the "mistaken suspicion" that "everything written concerning America must be directed to stimulate emigration to that country." Tatham uses his extensive topographical knowledge and many years of living and working in America to provide a detailed and wide-ranging report on the state of American agriculture. The work includes sections on "the moral Evil of Slavery," the American cultivation of clover seed, tobacco, wheat, hemp, and the best use of horses and cattle. It concludes with a two- page appendix titled "Mr. Jefferson's Opinion upon the Establishment of an American naval force." This text is taken from Jefferson's NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA and begins with the rallying cry, "The sea is the field on which we should meet an European enemy." It continues with an assessment of how an improved Navy could be funded. Rare, with only six institutional copies recorded. The second work, COMMUNICATIONS CONCERNING THE AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE OF AMERICA: CONTAINING OBSERVATIONS ON THE COMMERCE OF SPAIN WITH HER AMERICAN COLONIES IN TIME OF WAR, is an examination of American agricultural commerce with regard to Spain, "written by a Spanish gentleman in Philadelphia." Latham is credited as the editor on the titlepage, with both Howes and Sabin attributing authorship to Carlos Martinez de Yrujo y Tacon. Martizez de Yrujo was the Spanish minister to the United States from 1796 to 1807, and was a well-respected figure among the diplomatic corps in Philadelphia and Washington. His work here includes two papers on Louisiana, and one specifically devoted to Havana, Cuba. Rare. OCLC only records eight copies. An especially interesting feature of the second work is found in Tatham's "An Account of the Country of Ouachita. Transmitted from a Foreign Traveller at New Orleans, in 1795," found at pp.99-110. In this section, Tathamn records impressions of this "Foreign Traveller," as well as another account by a "French Emigrant," on lands west of the Mississippi River that we now know of as Arkansas and Texas. These accounts touch on the mysterious ancient inhabitants who once lived here, the abundance of food, including maize, rice, potatoes, pumpkins, and other foods that "come to great perfection here," the trees, the wildlife, the minerals, and the fish that swell the rivers. Of particular Texas interest is mention on pp. 105-106 of the Red River, and of the ease of buying cattle in the Ouachita area, because of its "proximity to Taxas [sic], a province of Mexico abounding with these kinds of cattle for want of purchasers." This is an extraordinarily early mention of Texas in the English language, and until this time seemingly unnoticed in the scholarship, even by Streeter. The third work, AUXILIARY REMARKS ON AN ESSAY ON THE "COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGES OF OXEN FOR TILLAGE IN COMPETITION WITH HORSES," compares the labor benefits of oxen and horses. Not in ESTC. Very rare, with only two copies in OCLC.

        Differenz des Fichteschen und Schellingschen Systems der Philosophie (Difference Between Fichte?s and Schelling?s Systems of Philosophy).

      Jena: Seidler, 1801. First edition of Hegel's first book. Small octavo, period patterned paper boards, leather spine. Some wear to the extremities. Rare. In 1801 Hegel came to Jena with the encouragement of his old friend Schelling, who held the position of professor at the University there. Hegel secured a position at the University as a Privatdozent (unsalaried lecturer) after submitting a Habilitationsschrift (dissertation) on the orbits of the planets. Later in the year Hegel's first book, The Difference Between Fichte's and Schelling's Systems of Philosophy, was completed. He lectured on "Logic and Metaphysics" and gave joint lectures with Schelling on an "Introduction to the Idea and Limits of True Philosophy" and held a "Philosophical Disputorium". In 1802 Schelling and Hegel founded a journal, the Kritische Journal der Philosophie ("Critical Journal of Philosophy"), to which they each contributed pieces until the collaboration was ended when Schelling left for Würzburg in 1803. Hegel attempted to show how Fichte's Science of Knowledge was an advance from the position of Kant in the Critique of Pure Reason, and how Schelling had made a further advance from the position of Fichte. Hegel finds the idealism of Fichte too abstractly subjective and formalistic, and he tries to show how Schelling's philosophy of nature is the remedy for these weaknesses. But the most important philosophical content of the essay is probably to be found in his general introduction to these critical efforts where he deals with a number of problems about philosophical method in a way which is of general interest to philosophers, and not merely interesting to those who accept the Hegelian "dialectic method" which grew out of these first beginnings. Finally, the Difference essay is important in the development of "Nature-Philosophy" as a movement in the history of science.

        MAP OF MASSACHUSETTS PROPER COMPILED FROM ACTUAL SURVEYS MADE BY ORDER OF THE GENERAL COURT, AND UNDER THE INSPECTION OF AGENTS OF THEIR APPOINTMENT

      [Boston, 1801. Dissected and mounted on contemporary linen. In good condition, with light foxing. Original printed publisher's paper label affixed to the verso. In a half morocco and cloth box. The revised, much improved, and first "official" edition of the most important early map of Massachusetts. This edition is a great improvement over Osgood Carleton's 1798 original (which was rejected for official sanction by the government of the Commonwealth) in several ways. First, the coastline and coastal islands have been more correctly rendered, largely due to the fact that information from the charts of Joseph Des Barres was incorporated. Secondly, roads and streams that had been left incomplete in the earlier map were extended. Lastly, some of the clutter of the 1798 map, engraved by Carleton's partner, John Norman, was removed, and the map is more attractive and informative, with the lines cleaner and crisper. The history of the creation and publication of Carleton's map is quite interesting. There was a movement to create a state-sponsored map of Massachusetts as early as 1791. In 1795, after a failed attempt by the Massachusetts Historical Society, Osgood Carleton and John Norman signed a contract with the Commonwealth to create a state map based on surveys submitted by every town, the entire map to be endorsed as to its quality by the state government. The map was produced in 1798, but it failed to win approval by the General Court, which criticized Norman's engraving. The government asked Norman to redraw the map, but he had already printed 400 copies and went about marketing it without the official seal of approval from the Massachusetts government. Carleton, however, began to recompile the map, and the firm of Callendar and Hill was contracted to engrave it. This version of the map - the present version - was approved by the General Court in 1801, and 500 copies of the map were ordered to be printed. The map was published by B. & J. Loring in Boston and offered (along with a companion map of Maine, which was under Massachusetts' control until 1820) at four dollars for a set, seven dollars if mounted on cloth with rollers, and eight dollars if folded into cases. This copy of the map retains the publisher's original paper label, which forcefully asserts that this 1801 version of the Carleton map of Massachusetts, approved by the General Court, is "the only accurate one ever published of this state." The map is drawn on a scale of four miles to the inch, and gives a clear delineation of the boundaries and coastline of the state of Massachusetts, and of the borders of each town in the state. The distance of each town from Boston and from their respective county seat is given, and major roads and streams are shown. Public and private institutions, including academies, meetinghouses, courthouses, etc., are located, as are topographical features such as mountains, ponds, rivers, and streams. The cartouche, smaller in size and more attractive than that in the 1798 version, is still quite large, taking up much of the lower left corner of the map. It shows an Indian standing beside trees on a shoreline, with boats in the distant waters, and casks, anchors, nets, and a globe in the foreground. A very rare, important, and early map of Massachusetts.

      London. 1801. - [4],viii,cxxxii,412,[2]pp. plus three folding maps. 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."

        JOURNALS OF CONGRESS: CONTAINING THEIR PROCEEDINGS [FROM SEPTEMBER 5, 1774 TO NOVEMBER 3, 1788]

      Philadelphia, 1801. Modern antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Bookplate of Edward Everett on front pastedown of each volume. Some light tanning and soiling, but generally clean internally. Very good. The first collected printing of the Journals of the United States Congress, known as the "Folwell Edition." Prior to the issuing of Folwell's set, the Journals had appeared in more or less annual volumes. Many of those original journals are virtually unobtainable. In 1799, Congress directed that Richard Folwell print 400 sets of the complete journals of the Continental Congress for the use of the Senate and the House of Representatives. This was accomplished during 1800 and 1801, reprinting the annual volumes comprising the proceedings of the Continental Congress from the two Congresses held prior to the Declaration of Independence, then for the duration of the Confederacy, through the adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. This set has the important provenance of Elbridge Gerry, fifth Vice President of the United States, and then to distinguished American statesman Edward Everett. Everett's bookplate is in each volume, and he has written on the front fly leaf of the first volume: "This copy of the Journals of the Continental Congress belonged to Elbridge Gerry, Vice-President of the United States with President Madison in his second term. E.E." Gerry served in the Continental Congress and was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was an early and vigorous advocate of American Independence, and played a crucial role in the formation of the new United States government, insisting on a bill of rights being added to the new Constitution. "Gerry warned that the Constitution would not be ratified without a bill of rights, and he proved to be right. Massachusetts accepted the document, but only with the strong recommendation that a bill of rights be added. Several other states followed suit, and the Constitution was ratified but only with these provisos. Gerry staunchly supported the new government, helped to frame the Bill of Rights, and served as congressman from 1789 to 1793" - ANB. His name is perhaps most remembered, however ignominiously, in connection with the term "gerrymandering." In his second term as governor of Massachusetts, Gerry redrew district lines to consolidate his party's control in the state senate. "The shape of one electoral district on the map resembled a salamander, and one wit promptly dubbed it a 'Gerrymander.' Hence, the term used today when redistricting results in a concentration of the strength of one political party and a weakening of its opponent's strength" - ANB. Though this was not necessarily a new practice, the name stuck. Gerry ran on the ticket with President Madison two years later, during Madison's second term as president, and died in office in 1814. Edward Everett attended Harvard, then became the first American to study in Europe and obtain a Ph.D. He served in the U.S. House of Representatives, as governor of Massachusetts for four years in 1835-39, then U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain, President of Harvard, Secretary of State, and Senator from Massachusetts. Ironically, his career ended as the long-winded keynote speaker at Gettysburg, preceding Abraham Lincoln's Address with two hours of oratory. He died a year later. An important set, with the significant provenance of two of the most important statesmen from Massachusetts in the first half of the 19th century.

      - Paris, Dufart, An X-XI (1801-1803). 8 volumes. Royal-8vo (208 x 135 mm). pp. 384; 432; 452; 397; 365; 447; 436; 439, with 100 engraved plates and 2 folded tables. Publisher's brown marbled boards. "Daudin's most extensive herpetological work, and the one on which his reputation rests, was the 'Histoire Naturelle, Générale et Particulière des Reptiles' (1801-1803), in eight volumes with 100 plates . This book, part of the so-called Sonnini edition of Buffon's encyclopedia, was the standard herpetological reference of its day . Daudin stated that he had examined over 1100 specimens belonging to 517 species, triple the number catalogued by Count Lacepède only 25 years before, his genera are well defined ." (Adler, Contributions to the History of Herpetolgy p. 20). "Of all the herpetological treatises to emerge in France immediately following the French Revolution, the most comprehensive was Daudin's. The great voyages of discovery of the 15th to 18th centuries had brought to Europe enormous masses of new plant and animal species. and into most of the 19th century, Paris was the center for herpetological studies" (S. Haines, Slithy Toves. Illustrated classic Herpetological books at the University of Kansas p. 72). François Marie Daudin (1774-1804) died at a very early age. An uncut copy.Nissen ZBI, 1045.

      - Altkolorierter Kupferstich b. Società Calcografia in Venedig, dat. 1801, 50,5 x 67 Bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar! - Diese sehr seltene Karte gehört zu einem nie beendetem Projekt der "Società Calcografia", ein Zusammenschluß der beiden venezianischen Verleger des 18. Jahrhundert Antonio Zatta und Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. - Weitere Karten die uns aus dem Projekt bekannt sind tragen auch den Namen "à Venise Chez la Societe Chalcographique". - Das Projekt ist nie beendet worden und die Karten in keiner uns bekannten Bibliographie aufgeführt. - Oben rechts in Manuskript "N. XII." - Die Karte zeigt Nordwestfrankreich mit den genannten Départements in dem Gebiet der Südküste Englands mit den Kanalinseln, Normandie und Bretagne. - Am linken Rand altkolorierte Titelkartusche; unten links Erklärungen und Meilenzeiger. - Extrem seltener Einblattdruck! This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. The term Società Calcografica has been deduced from the map of the world, which is part of the collection and bears in the lower cartouche the French writing "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique". As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has ever been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini’s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 "Atlas Universelle" and from the plates of Antonio Zatta’s "Nuovo Atlante" published in 1796. Santini’s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died in 1811.

The plates are after Jacques De Sève, one of the most famous natural history artists of the period. "Toutes les planches ont été dessinées de nouveau par J.E.

        A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS, EXHIBITING ALL THE EMPIRES, KINGDOMS, STATES, REPUBLICS, &c. &c. IN THE WHOLE WORLD. BEING A COMPLETE COLLECTION OF THE MOST APPROVED MAPS EXTANT...INCLUDING ALL THE TRACKS AND NEW DISCOVERIES OF THE BRITISH CIRCUMNAVIGATORS BIRON [sic], WALLIS, CARTERET, CAPTAIN JAMES COOK, VANCOUVER, PEROUSE, &c. &c. The Fifth Edition

      London, 1801. Thick folio. Contemporary tree calf, gilt, spine gilt, blue morocco label. Marbled endpapers. Fine. A very fine copy of the fifth edition of this important atlas of the world, including a newly revised chart of world and nine other maps that were not available in the early editions of this spectacular work. Eight editions of this work were issued on an almost annual basis from 1796 through until 1807. The publishers constantly changed and improved the atlas in an effort to outdo not only their competitors, but also to improve on the previous edition. Maps were added (the first edition included only sixty-six map sheets), maps were replaced (the present work includes two maps dated 1800, including "A New Chart of the World" dated Nov. 25, 1800), and maps were updated (eight maps are dated 1799). The scale of some of the maps is truly spectacular: this atlas contains fifteen maps that if joined would form large-scale wall maps. "Asia and its Islands" (on three folding sheets, ranging from the Arctic regions in the north, down through Russia, Indonesia and Australia) would measure approximately 56 x 46 inches if assembled. The remaining maps on two folding sheets would all be approximately 40 x 46 inches if joined, including three maps of American interest: "A new map of the whole continent of America"; "A new map of North America, with the West India Islands"; and "A map of South America." The remaining areas that are covered by large-scale maps are "A general map of the World"; England and Wales; Scotland; Ireland; the Netherlands; Germany; Hindoostan; Bengal, Bahar, etc.; Delhi, Agrah, Oude, and Allahabad. This atlas was originally created by Thomas Kitchin. Sayer and Bennett had published the work in 1773, and Laurie and Whittle took over the Sayer business in 1794. They subsequently enlarged the work, adding maps and changing the name from the GENERAL ATLAS to A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS. The maps are based on the work of a variety of mapmakers and surveyors: Thomas Kitchin, Thomas Jefferys, John Rocque, Robert Campbell, John Armstrong, John Roberts, L.S. d'Arcy Delarochette, James Rennell, Andrew Dury, Thomas Pownall, and Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville. Also included is the information gathered as a result of the important Pacific voyages of Captain James Cook, George Vancouver, and Jean François Galaup de La Pérouse.
