First edition, very rare, of the Dutch translation of Edward Jones's 1796 English System of book-keeping. "Jones's Dutch translator and adapter, N. A. Vestieu, took as his illustrative material the transactions recorded in N. F. Fortsch's Instructie ... over het Italiaans Boekhouden, Amsterdam, 1801. He reworked these transactions according to a modified English system, and was able to produce the same total profit figure as Förtsch had found, using the traditional double-entry system."

        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.

        A Voyage round the World. Performed in the Years 1785, 1786, 1787, 1788, abridged from the Original French Journal ? which was lately published by M. Milet-Mureau ? To which are added, A Voyage from Manilla to California by Don Antonio Maurelle and an Abstract of the Voyage and Discoveries of the late Capt. G. Vancouver

      Boston: Printed for Joseph Bumpstead and sold by Him ... by Thomas and Andrews, E. and S. Larkin, Wm. P. and L. Blake, W. Pelham and C. Bingham, 1801. First American edition in condensed form of these three travels. La Pérouse was first published in English in 1785, Maurelle's circa 1780 and Vancouver's work in 1798. 12mo. Contemporary tree sheep, red morocco gilt label. Some rubbing of extremities, small chip at top of upper joint, lower edge of upper cover chipped for about 1 1/2 inches, some staining and marginal browning of text and endpapers (front free endpapers frayed). With the notation "Foster Social Library 90" on title and stamp of "Foster Manton Library" on a few leaves. Even as described, a good copy of these three travels. In a brown cloth open end case, leather tipped. First American edition in condensed form of these three travels. La Pérouse was first published in English in 1785, Maurelle's circa 1780 and Vancouver's work in 1798. 12mo. The text is based on the 1798 Edinburgh abridgement. The Hill copy includes a map but this was added later. Although merely a precis, this work also includes the first American appearance of Vancouver's voyage in print. The three accounts condensed in this text are all important accounts of the explorations of the Pacific Northwest. La Pérouse's being the earliest "visit of a foreigner to the missionary establishments in Upper California" (Howes), Maurelle's being the only contemporary account of the earliest Spanish expeditions to Alaska and Vancouver's explorations of the Pacific Northwest are among the most important and best known. With Jay's treaty of 1794 requiring the removal by the British from the Northwestern posts by 1796 the way was opened for western expansion. The editor notes in his introduction that the three authors of these works were first and foremost navigators and that it is this aspect of their works on which he concentrated. La Perouse voyage sought to build on Cook's efforts to discover a North-West Passage. Like Cook, he failed to return from the voyage, although in his case due to shipwreck off Vanikoro.

        TALES OF WONDER

      London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. for the Author, 1801. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. An Omnibus of the Ominous, in Animated and Elegant Etruscan Calf. 260 x 159 mm (10 1/4 x 6 1/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary calf in the Etruscan style, possibly by Edwards of Halifax, each cover with a gilt floral spray border (unusual for this style of binding) surrounding a terra cotta and deep burnt orange frame with palmettes stamped in black and blind, this frame enclosing a panel diced and dotted in blind and with gilt cornerpieces and a central medallion featuring an incised monochrome mythological painting; double raised bands flanking gilt pentaglyph and metope roll, gilt-ruled spine compartments with open gilt dots and classical ornaments in blind, turn-ins with Greek key gilt roll, marbled edges (neatly rebacked, using most of the original spines, hinges reinforced with matching paper in first volume and matching cloth in second). Front pastedown with the bookplate of "E. L."; front free endpaper with the bookplate of Harry H. Blum. Lowndes II, 1353. Central images on the covers of volume II somewhat indistinct, a few leaves with faint spots, otherwise excellent, the carefully restored binding still retaining much of its original impressiveness, and the text very crisp and clean. This is an appealing Etruscan calf binding that may be (or is at least derived from) the work of Edwards of Halifax, offered here as the animated adornment for a fresh copy of the two-volume first appearance of "Monk" Lewis' famous and fascinating wicked stew of nightmares in verse. Matthew Gregory Lewis (1775-1818) was an infamous author of lurid Gothic literature, his most successful (and notorious) novel being "The Monk" (1796), an instant classic that bestowed his nickname. Our "hobgoblin repast" (as Lewis characterized "Tales of Wonder") is comprised of 60 chilling narratives including imitations, translations, and original pieces written by Goethe, Bürger, William Taylor of Norwich, John Leyden, Robert Southey, Henry Bunbury, a young Walter Scott (who contributed five pieces), and Lewis himself. As a suggestion of how horrific the works of our author were considered by his contemporaries, Lord Byron wrote of "Wonder-working Lewis, Monk or Bard, who fain wouldst make Parnassus a churchyard; Even Satan's self with thee might dread to dwell, And in thy skull discern a deeper hell." ("English Bards and Scotch Reviewers" 1809) Featuring a very elegant oval vignette on each cover, our impressively bound copy of this omnibus of the ominous was formerly in the possession of Harry H. Blum, Chicago department store owner and noted book enthusiast whose collection was sold at Sotheby's in 1982.

        TABLEAU DE L'AGRICULTURE TOSCANE

      Genève: J. J. Paschoud, 1801. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. 210 x 140 mm (8 1/4 x 5 1/2"). xiv, 327 pp. FIRST EDITION. Very pleasing recent retrospective smooth half calf over convincing marbled paper boards, raised bands, maroon morocco label, new well-matching endpapers. Folding frontispiece illustrating various types of trees and agricultural tools. The folding plate, first three leaves, and three other leaves with marginal patches up to two inches square (not affecting text), probably due to the removal of a library stamp. Aside from the patches mentioned above, a copy IN VERY FINE CONDITION inside and out, the new convincing binding unworn, and the text unusually clean, fresh, and bright. This is the youthful first work of notable historian and economist Jean Charles Léonard Simonde de Sismondi (1773-1842), the fruit of five years of experience as a farmer in Tuscany. The author offers a thorough and detailed discussion of the cultivation of olives and the production of olive oil; he discusses grapes and the production of Tuscan wines (including Montepulciano, Chianti, and Montecatini); he discourses on chestnut and fruit trees as well as on livestock; and, indicative of his future interests, he spends time examining the condition of the peasantry. Simonde de Sismondi was born in Geneva of a family of Italian origin, studied and travelled in England, then moved with his parents to Tuscany to escape the vicissitudes of the French Revolution. Initially influenced by the ideas of Adam Smith, he argued in his early works for a free market economy, but after the financial crises of 1818 and 1819, he radically revised his economic views, becoming an advocate for government regulation. He spent his later life largely in Geneva and France, and was widely admired and honored for his many works of economics and history, some of the best known being his "History of the Italian Republics" and "History of the French," which was written over a period of 20 years. The present volume is especially desirable because it is quite rare (nothing in ABPC since at least 1975), because it gives a useful comprehensive picture of the agricultural landscape of Tuscany at the end of the 18th century, and because it is an early work by such an eminent author.

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

      Seidler, Jena 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Well-Tempered Clavier

      1801. BACH, Johann Sebastian.Das wohltemperirte Clavier, oder Präludien und Fugen durch alle Töne.Zurich: Hans Georg Nageli, [1801-02].Two volumes.Rare first edition of both parts of Bach?'s masterpiece in musical instruction, fully engraved.Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, a collection of 48 preludes and fugues in all the major and minor keys, occupies a pivotal position in the keyboard repertoire. Students are still required to study this work, and seasoned performers are praised for their interpretations of it. The Well-Tempered Clavier "surpasses, in logic, in format and in musical quality, all earlier endeavors of the same kind by other masters… The work shows a perfectly balanced contrast between free and strict styles, each represented by several different types of prelude and fugue. Bach's writing… represents the culmination of a 20-year process of maturation and stands unparalleled in the history of music" (New Grove). Bach completed Part I in 1722 and Part II in 1744. After Bach's death in 1750, the work circulated in manuscript. "In 1782 Mozart arranged several of the fugues for chamber-music combinations… and in 1783 Beethoven played the Well-Tempered Clavier at the age of thirteen in a famous performance" (Fuld, 674).Fuld, 118. RISM B 499. Kinsky, 120.Usual wear to boards, plates bright and clean with only occasional scattered foxing. An extraordinary copy, in contemporary boards, of this landmark musical classic. Rare.

        Tratado da gravura a agua forte, e a buril, e em maneira negra com o modo de construir as prensas modernas, e de imprimir em talho doce ? Nova edição traduzida do francez ? por José Joaquim Viegas Menezes ?.

      Lisbon, Typ. Chalcographica, Typoplastica e Litteraria do Arco do Cego, 1801. - (5 ll.), ix, 189, (1) pp., 21 numbered engraved plates plus engraved frontis. 4°, mid-twentieth-century dark blue sheep, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, covers tooled in blind, blindstamped inner dentelles, marbled endleaves. A few of the plates somewhat browned. Uncut and partially unopened. In fine condition. "M.M. Leal" stamped in gilt on lower portion of rear inner dentelle. ---- First and only Portuguese translation; Bosse's treatise was originally published in Paris, 1645. (William Faithorne published what amounted to an English translation of it in 1662). This work on engraving was translated into Portuguese as part of the Arco do Cego's campaign to spread information about new techniques in the arts, industry and agriculture in Portugal and Brazil, by making the best recent works on those subjects available in Portuguese. Borba calls this work "one of the finest productions of the Arco do Cego." The Arco do Cego press (officially the Tipografia Chalcografica, Tipoplastica e Literaria, located in Lisbon at the Arco do Cego), was established in 1800 at the insistence of D. Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho, Minister of State. The director of the press was José Mariano da Conceição Veloso (1742?-1811), a native of Minas Geraes and a noted botanist; he was assisted by many young Brazilians living in Lisbon. The Arco do Cego was well equipped, with its own foundry for making type, its own presses and its own designers and engravers, two of whom?Romão Eloy and Ferreira Souto?later introduced the art of engraving to Brazil. The press produced a relatively large number of works, but in 1801 it was incorporated into the Regia Oficina Typografica, later known as the Impressão Regia and then the Imprensa Nacional.The translator, José Joaquim Viegas Menezes, was among a number of Brazilians recruited to work at the press. Veigas was a native of Marianna, Minas Geraes, born in 1778. He studied in São Paulo and came to Coimbra to complete his studies before his ordination, in 1797. At the Arco do Cego he learned the basics of engraving and typography, which later led him to set up the first press in the present Minas Geraes, established in collaboration with Manuel José Barbosa in 1821.The beautiful allegorical frontispiece is by Antonio José Quinto, who is described by Soares (II, 506) as one of the best artists who worked at the Arco do Cego and the Impressão Regia. The plates following the text illustrate tools and techniques of engraving, and the results that can be achieved with various methods. About half these plates are signed "O P. Silva" or "O P@e Silva"; this artist has not been identified by Soares (see his comment on II, 567). Three other plates are signed "Jorge f@es," another artist whom Soares was unable to identify. The remaining plates are unsigned.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 565: reproducing the title-page; @Período colonial pp. 246-7. Sacramento Blake IV, 501. Innocêncio IV, 415.

Dans ce lieu, pour éviter de repenser aux horreurs vues, les jeunes gens se racontent des contes les uns aux autres. Ils restent durant quatorze jours dans la villa mais sans raconter d'histoire les vendredis et samedis. Le titre vient donc de ces dix journées de contes. Chaque jour, un participant tient le rôle de « roi » et décide du thème des contes. Cependant, le premier et le neuvième jours, cette règle n'est pas appliquée.

        LIVES OF THE MOST EMINENT ENGLISH POETS. With Critical Observations on Their Works.

      London Nichols and Son 1801 - 3 volumes. A New Edition, Corrected. 8vo, full contemporary mottled calf, spines divided into six compartments separated by multi-ruled and tooled gilt bands, central gilt tools in four compartments, the volume numbers in gilt in one compartment, board edges gilt. vii, 459; iii, 404; iii, 389 pp. A very nice set, fine and handsome, with just a bit of expected age evidence to the calf. A FINE AND PLEASING SET OF THIS CLASSIC WORK. It took Johnson four years to write these lives of poets such as Denham, Milton, and Rochester, and much of this work’s charm lies in the anecdotes and reminiscences which the author was able to provide. He spent much time in the company of men of letters and his retentive memory preserved many of the facts and criticisms which fell from their lips. The work, Johnson's last great labor, was suggested by the Martins at Edinburgh. "The first conception of the booksellers was to begin with the works of Chaucer, but that project was too vast for them, and the first author in their edition was Cowley. The diminution of the scheme is not greatly to be regretted. The poets before Cowley were not so well know to Johnson, and he had no special information on their lives" (Courtney and Smith, p. 130).

Published when Gauss was just twenty-four, Disquisitiones arithmeticae revolutionised number theory. It is one of the most influential mathematical books ever published.'In this work Gauss 'introduces, among other things, the concept of congruence, whereby a set of elements is separated into disjoint classes by means of an equivalence relation. Gauss develops the congruence concept in the books first sections and then uses it to unify and extend the work of his predecessors on arithmetical divisibility and to create a coherent theory of quadratic forms, including a proof of the law of quadratic reciprocity, called by Gauss the theorema aureum or "gem of arithmetic." He also generalizes his earlier work on constructing the regular polygon of 17 sides, presenting a universal criterion for determining which regular n-sided polygons can be constructed only with straightedge and compass and which cannot. Finally, he includes a rigorous proof of the long-known Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic that any positive integer can be uniquely (except for order) expressed as a product of primes' (Parkinson Breakthroughs).Provenance: 8 contemporary folded manuscript inserts of detailed mathematical calculations in Latin and Spanish (for pages 44, 56, 58, 59, 60, 64, 65, and 78)Dibner 114; Evans 11; Horblit 38; Norman 878; Parkinson p 238; PMM 257

        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.
