(PERRY: BLACK SHIP SCROLL)
A unique early account of Commodore Matthew C. Perry's second visit to Japan, during which he negotiated the Treaty of Kanagawa; our scroll is composed of 20 scenes on 30 joined sheets of paper, and conveys the initial Japanese impressions of the Americans, their ships, technology, and weapons. Our "Blackship Scroll" was especially compiled by Otsuki Bankei for his fiefdom lord and contains many images and texts which are not found in other scrolls of this genre. As soon as word spread of Perry's second arrival, the scroll's creator, Otsuki Bankei (1801-78), was immediately sent by his fiefdom lord to record the proceedings of this fateful encounter. While the Americans' first stay in 1853 was brief, this second visit was much longer, with Perry intent on ratifying a comprehensive treaty. The Americans remained for more than a month and, for the first time, they were allowed to spend considerable time on shore. The two sides were able to interact and socialize more than ever before. This extended stay gave the Japanese unprecedented exposure to the foreigners and their first observations are vividly recorded on this scroll. It is important to note that our scroll is considerably different from other scrolls illustrating Perry's second visit to Japan; it also contains text by Bankei not present in other examples. Our scroll is a unique record of what Bankei witnessed and heard. He was assisted by two artists, Sekishi Kuwagata (1800-55) and Ranryo Seki (1805-63). The original box, in which the scroll is preserved, has a very old label pasted on the lid: "Kaei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mackenzie, Alexander
London: R. Noble for T. Cadell, jun. & W. Davies, Cobbett & Morgan, and W. Creech of Edinburgh, 1801. [4],viii,cxxxii,412pp. plus stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece of Mackenzie by P. Condé after Thomas Lawrence, three folding engraved maps, and Errata leaf. Half title. Quarto. 20th-century three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather labels. Minor edge wear. Light occasional foxing, short tears to maps at mounts. An attractive copy in very good condition. Alexander Mackenzie was "the first white man to cross the continent and his journal...is of surpassing interest" (Wagner-Camp). The present work is the first published account of the two exploring expeditions that Mackenzie made on behalf of the North West Company as part of their attempt to break the Hudson's Bay Company's stranglehold on the fur trade. The author was born in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland in 1764, came to North America in 1774, was employed as a clerk in the fur trade in 1779, and by 1787 he was a wintering partner in the North West Company, posted at Fort Chipewyan on Lake Athabasca. Mackenzie set out on his first expedition on June 3, 1789, armed with information and maps provided by fur trader Peter Pond. He had decided to follow a large river flowing west from Great Slave Lake in search of a northwest passage to the Pacific. The expedition was partially successful: on July 13, Mackenzie and his party reached salt water, but it proved to be the Beaufort Sea rather than the Pacific Ocean. After a further two years in the fur trade in Canada, Mackenzie returned to England in the … [Click Below for Full Description]

KANT EMMANUEL
A. Reutlingen, 1801. In 8° (mm 180x110); pagg. XVIII, 236. Elegante mezza pelle coeva con angoli, titolo impresso in oro su doppio tassello al dorso, che presenta cinque nervi e scomparti con filetti in oro; piatti in cartone, tagli rossi. Testo in carattere gotico. Seconda edizione.Kant non ha mai prodotto un "libro" sulla logica, ma ha insegnato e tenuto conferenze su tale argomento durante i suoi anni di docenza all'università in un corso introduttivo di filosofia. La pubblicazione di Logik nel 1800 nasce dalla collezione delle lezioni sulla logica di tale corso, compilata dai suoi manoscritti e appunti e curata dai suoi allievi, principalmente da Gottlob Jaesche. Kant in questi scritti affronta direttamente la distinzione tra logica generale e trascendentale, e spiega le differenze tra analisi e la sintesi, in relazione ai concetti, giudizi, e metodi. Logik apre al lettore una finestra sul mondo kantiano della scienza della logica, come un' architetura che serve a comprendere il suo lavoro, una spiegazione diretta dei concetti più importanti delle sue "critiche". Secondo Kant la logica può essere presa in esame da due punti di vista diversi: la logica dell'uso generale dell'intelletto ("generale") e quella dell'uso "particolare": la prima comprende le leggi necessarie del pensiero, senza le quali non ci sarebbe funzionamento corretto dell'intelletto; è una logica che prescinde da ogni contenuto della conoscenza, si occupa di meri principi a priori; la seconda, "trascendentale", riguarda le leggi dell'intelletto e della ragione, le regole del pensare correttamente una "d … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: J. and T. Carpenter. 8vo., xix + (I) + 427 + (1)pp., engraved plates and two text figures, the plates rather stained, wanting the half-title, a few emphasis marks in pencil and early annotations in ink, old, probably original boards, rebacked in cloth with a printed paper label, uncut. A good large copy. First edition. Kress B.4464. Goldsmiths 18194. Rothamsted (1st ed.) p.127 (noting 6 plates). Perkins 1724. Fussell, III, pp.31-2. A curious book by an eccentric Anglo-American. William Tatham (1752-1819) was sent to America in 1769 to seek his fortune. He obtained a commission at the outbreak of the War of Independence and took part in campaigns against the Cherokees and Creeks and the siege of Yorktown. In 1784 he was admitted to the bar of Virginia, in 1787 elected a member of the state legislature of North Carolina and in 1795 he was dispatched to Spain as American envoy to settle some boundary disputes in Florida. After his return to England in 1796 he became superintendent of the London Docks at Wapping in 1801. In 1805 he returned to America in poor circumstances, had problems with alcohol and bizarrely committed suicide in Feb. 1819 by stepping in front of a cannon at the moment of discharge. Perhaps the most interesting parts of Tatham's book on irrigation are the additional essays, including his Hints towards employing the vagrant and disorderly classes of the community in works of national irrigation, inland navigation and drainage; as a remuneration to society for the depredations they may have committed> [pp.359-382], and his ingenious Plan for raising t … [Click Below for Full Description]

ITARD (Jean)
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.

Vienna: Artaria e Comp. [PN] 872, [1801]. Oblong folio. Early blue wrappers. 1f. (title), ii (blank), 2-56 pp. Engraved. Printed price: "3 fr. 30," corrected in ink in "4 fr/20." Early owner's signature to upper wrapper in ink: "Wilhelmine Maurer." Two leaves trimmed at lower margin with very slight loss to printed area. A very good copy overall. First Edition. The full score was not published until 1864. Kinsky p. 102-04. Hoboken 2, 215 and plate 8. First performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on March 28, 1801 to a libretto by the noted Italian choreographer and dancer Salvatore Viganò (1769-1821). "The second half of 1800 was outwardly uneventful; it doubtless saw the final revision of the op.18 string quartets, and the writing of the B♭ Piano Sonata (op. 22) and of the A minor and F major violin sonatas (opp. 23, 24). There was less inducement to prepare new works for a possible concert in the following spring, since he had received an important commission for the court stage: he was to write the music for a ballet designed by the celebrated ballet-master Salvatore Viganò, Die Geschöpfe des Prometheus (op.43). This was given its first performance at the Burgtheater on 28 March 1801 and was successful enough to be repeated more than 20 times. Only a sketch of the scenario survives. In the finale Beethoven used a melody that evidently came to assume a certain emotional importance for him, perhaps even embodying something of his spirit of determination and heroism in battling against difficulties, for he used it again as the theme for two important and challenging sets of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Itard, Jean Marc Gaspard
Paris: Goujon Fils, An X [1801]. First edition of this famous work. Small octavo bound in modern marbled brown paper boards with gilt-stamped spine. Lacking the frontis portrait of the “Wild Boy.” Contemporary marginal note on page 7. Signed by Itard and Goujon on the verso of the title page to prevent piracy. 100pp. Jean Itard (1774-1838) was a French doctor known as an educator of deaf-mutes. He tested his educational theories in the celebrated case of Victor, the Wild Boy of Aveyron, who was found in the woods in a feral state and was believed to have lived there for years. Itard worked to make the boy normal (which failed). In this first report, Itard was optimistic about the feral child’s prospects for language acquisition and socialization; in his 1807 second report his conclusions were much more pessimistic. Itard’s methods were based upon Condillac’s analytical approach to the acquisition of knowledge, which had been successful in the teaching of deaf-mutes and which Itard adapted to the needs of the extraordinary boy Victor.

Bien que l'avant propos du traducteur raconte la découverte d'un manuscrit issu d'un naufrage, l'auteur est bien Michel Crevecoeur, qui a certainement usé de ce subterfuge littéraire pour prévenir les possibles attaques contre son livre et accroître la véracité de son récit de voyage. Il ne s'agit donc pas d'une traduction mais bien d'une oeuvre originale, qui peut être regardée comme la suite des Lettres d'un cultivateur.

MORTIMER, Thomas.
London: Printed by A. Strahan for T. N. Longman and O. Rees,, 1801. intended as a companion to Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England; and peculiarly calculated to qualify young noblemen and gentlemen for situations in any of the public offices under government, and for parliamentary business. Octavo (225 x 141 mm). Original drab yellow paper spine, blue paper sides, paper spine label, uncut. Front joint cracked and a little tender, a few nicks and chips to spine, paper creased or awkwardly folded in places (during production). An excellent copy, tall, clean and crisp. First octavo edition, originally published in quarto as The Elements of Commerce, Politics and Finances (London 1772). Thomas Mortimer (1730–1810) was a prolific writer on trade and finance, perhaps best known for Every Man His Own Broker: or a Guide to the Stock Exchange (1761). In his introduction to the present edition, Mortimer notes that the idea for "a cheaper edition, and a new form of compiling it, [was] suggested by some respectable gentlemen of the University of Oxford, to whom the author paid a visit in the year 1798, as likely to be more useful to young students". The subscriber's list runs to around 170 names, headed by the Marquis of Lansdowne, and includes Sir William Hamilton, Lord Nelson, and John Horne Tooke. Scarce: Copac cites copies at seven British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Chetham's Library, Glasgow, LSE, Scotland, Edinburgh, Senate House); well-represented in OCLC but most uncommon in commerce.

ZASTROW, Adolf von.
Jordan 4198. First edition of a history of fortification by the Prussian general Alexander Friedrich Adolf Heinrich von Zastrow (1801-1875), who served in the Austro-Prussian War (1866) and the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871). It deals with fortification methods by different military writers and engineers, starting with Albrecht Dürer's treatise on fortification, first published at 1527. The next chapter deals with Italian fortification, in which he praises the military engineers of the Renaissance for adjusting the shape of fortresses to suit the terrain. Other chapters deal with the Dutch (Van Coehoorn), the French (Vauban, Cormontaigne) and the German (Spekel, Rimpler) methods of fortification, illustrated with ground plans and profiles on the folding plates.Foxed and a water stain in the upper outer corner throughout, also affecting the plates. A fair copy. Binding rubbed along the extremities, but otherwise good.
