      , February 13, 1802. February 13, 1802. The February 13, 1802 edition of The Tree of Liberty (Pittsburgh: Printed and Published by John Israel) four pages, 10.75" x 17.25", together with a two page "Extra", 8.25" x 11.25". Some marginal tears and chips not affecting text, light dampstain and creases.Philadelphia-born printer John Israel established The Tree of Liberty in August 1800 on the eve of the historic election of 1800 between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Israel, an ardent Jeffersonian Republican, had moved to western Pennsylvania in 1798 where he founded the Herald of Liberty in Washington, Pennsylvania. In 1800 a group of Western Pennsylvania Republicans including Hugh Henry Brackenridge and Albert Gallatin, requested Israel set up his press in Pittsburgh to counter the town's decidedly Federalist organ, John Scull's Gazette. Little is known about Israel's family background, but he is believed to have been Jewish and most likely offspring of the prominent Israel family of Philadelphia (it appears from the frequent anti-Semitic attacks made upon Israel in the Gazette that at least his opponents considered him Jewish). Israel was not only a pro-Jefferson newspaper editor, he was also a successful political organizer and party leader instrumental in organizing Republican electoral victories over the Federalists. In 1802, Jefferson rewarded Israel for his efforts with the lucrative contract to print federal legislation and other official notices in Pittsburgh, stripping the Federalist Gazette of a steady cash flow. Soon afterwards, the State of Pennsylvania, now under the leadership of Republican Thomas McKean, awarded Israel the contract to print state laws. Israel continued to publish the Tree until December 1805 when he sold the paper and moved south to Washington County. He died the following year from blood poisoning, just before his thirtieth birthday.*Israel is rewarded for his loyalty and authorized to print federal proceedings "By Authority". The Tree, Jefferson's political mouthpiece in western Pennsylvania, is awarded the lucrative contract to print federal legislation and proceeding for Pittsburgh by the new administration. From this issue onward, Israel would print the legislation and proceedings of Congress with the heading "PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY. The first piece of legislation Israel printed was, interestingly enough, the act reapportioning congressional seats after the second federal census â€

Piatti marmorizzati. Tagli a spruzzo azzurri. Ottimo stato. Quarta edizione veneziana di questa monumentale opera medica di Giovanni Battista Borsieri (Civezzano, Trento, 1725-Milano, 1785), allora onorata da larga fortuna e tempestivamente tradotta in italiano, inglese e tedesco. L'opera, enciclopedica nell'impostazione, tratta in prevalenza delle febbri, dei morbi esantematici, delle malattie cerebrali, nervose, cardiache e gastro-intestinali. Il Borsieri, allievo a Padova del Morgagni e del Vallisnieri, ma laureatosi in medicina a Bologna, compì il perfezionamento a Firenze. Chiamato a Faenza per collaborare con le autorità locali nel tentativo di debellare un'epidemia di febbri gastriche che infieriva da tempo in quella città, nel 1770 fu invitato dal ministro Firmian ad insegnare medicina pratica all'Università di Pavia, dove rimase dieci anni e di cui fu nominato anche rettore. L'arciduca Ferdinando d'Asburgo, governatore della Lombardia, lo volle a Milano come proprio medico personale, servizio che occupò fino alla morte. Cfr. (varie edizioni): Wellcome, II, 206.

His own identification in his connection, however, has never been clearly established; ambivalent evidence exists. On a few occasions Israel referred himself as a Jew. On the other hand, he was married by a Protestant minister.

        The Divina Commedia of Dante Alighieri

      T. Cadell Jun. and W Davies 1802 - T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies, in the Strand, London, 1802. Three volumes. Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) was a major Italian poet. He has been called the father of the Italian language and is one of the most admired and influential poets ever. His book, The Divina Commedia, is a masterpiece of world literature and is considered by many to be the greatest poem of the Middle Ages. The Divina Commedia describes Dante&#146;s journey through Hell (Inferno), Purgatory (Purgatorio) and Paradise (Paradiso). The work was translated into many European languages well before it was translated into English. The lack of English translations was due in part to Dante&#146;s Catholic views thought to be of little interest to Protestant English audiences. The first complete translation of the Divina Commedia, this set, was first published in 1802. The translator was the Rev. Henry Boyd. Boyd was most likely educated at Trinity College, Dublin. At the time the book was published, the Rev. Boyd was the vicar of Rathfryland, County Down, Northern Ireland. He was also chaplain to the Right Honourable Charles William, Lord Viscount Charleville, to whom this work was dedicated. The books are bound in contemporary mottled leather that has started to flake. The front cover hinges show some cracking at the bottom but are still very sound. The books are nice and square and are very solidly bound and unrestored. The lower book label on the spine of volume III is missing. It would read &#147;Vol. III&#148; on two lines. Marbled endpapers with two previous owners bookplates. The volumes are collated 100% correct. The page sizes are 208 x 128mm. Vol I frontispiece portrait of Dante, title page, dedication iii to vi + 408 pp; Vol II half title, title page + 384pp; Vol III half title, title page + 420pp. There are very minor traces of damp staining and foxing here and there. Overall a very sound and attractive copy of a truly rare seminal work in world literature. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Illustrations of the Huttonian Theory of the Earth. [First edition].

      Printed for Cadell and Davies, London, and William Creech, Edinburgh 1802 - Edinburgh, octavo, xx, 528 p. ***CONTENT: In 1788, in a preliminary paper, and in 1795, elaborated in book form, Scotsman James Hutton presented his perceptive hypothesis about the vast length of geologic time and his conclusion that geologic processes have always operated at roughly the same rate as they do today. These concepts, later named "uniformitarianism", are foundational ideas of modern geology. Unfortunately, the general public had little exposure to Hutton's works, and his writing style was awkward and overly preoccupied with natural theology. Following the death of his friend Hutton, John Playfair (1748-1819) prepared this treatise, clarifying and amplifying Hutton's writings using direct, elegant language and a simplicity of style. He added further 'illustrations' based on his personal observations. In large part because of this volume, Hutton's theories became popularized; he is now regarded as the 'father of modern geology'. Challinor calls this work "a masterpiece of geological literature". ***CONDITION: This is a VG copy, bound in contemporary full tree calf, with gilt-decorated covers and backstrip. The covers are clean and sound, but a bit worn at the extremities. Joints and hinges tender but holding, binding very firm. The title page is toned around the margin, but the other text pages are typically fresh, clean and bright. Save for a tiny Henry Sotheran (London) bookseller's label on the front pastedown, there are no indications of previous ownership. This is one of the most important geology books ever published, and is exceedingly rare in nice condition. BMNH 1584. Ward and Carozzi 1797. Challinor, 1971, The history of British geology, p. 70.

      T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies, London 1802 - Two volumes, quarto, [1798]: 2 charts, 18 plates and four textual vignettes, the vignettes most unusually repeated on additional folding plates, a fine thick paper issue bound with the half-title, [1802]: one chart, five plates (three with original hand-colouring) and four textual vignettes (two with hand-colouring), bound with the half-title; a most attractive set in beautiful full tree-calf bindings by Aquarius, gilt, double spine labels, speckled edges. A beautiful and special set of this classic First Fleet book, in superb condition. This is an exceptionally handsome copy of the first edition of the complete work, published as two separate volumes four years apart. The first volume is from a very rare issue on thick paper with the engraved vignettes that appear in the text also bound in as separately printed engravings on fold-out sheets. Collins had arrived with the First Fleet as Judge-Advocate and was Secretary to Governor Phillip. His book is a valuable account of the early settlement by an educated and observant resident of ten years, and was the last of the Australian foundation books to be published. This majestic work, often described as the earliest history of Australia as an English colony, contains the most detailed and painstaking of all descriptions of the voyage and first settlement found in any of the early narratives. The book is illustrated with full-page engravings prepared in London by the well-known artist Edward Dayes from sketches done in the colony by the convict artist Thomas Watling which include the first views to have been published of British settlements at Sydney and Parramatta.The first volume, published in 1798, is scarce today. In this set, as well as having the unusual feature of the extra engravings, the first volume is the rare thick paper issue (the text block measuring 68 mm.); very few copies are known in this form (apparently unique to the first volume as we have found no record of a thick paper issue of the second volume). A similar thick paper copy of the first volume was offered for sale by Maggs Brothers in catalogue 807 (1952): Frank Maggs noted at the time that this was the only such copy he had seen. Ferguson mentions a "large paper" issue but Wantrup was unable to locate an example and speculates that Ferguson may have used "large paper" loosely and may have been referring to a copy similar to the Maggs example.The second volume, which came out four years after the first and is if anything slightly more difficult to find, ". is of the greatest importance, not only for its detailed chronicle of events but because of its narrative of voyages and expeditions of discovery? The journals of Bass and Flinders are of particular importance since Bass's journal has never been recovered and ? the accounts of inland expeditions recorded in the journals of John Price and Henry Hacking are singularly interesting. Quite apart from the exploration interest of these journals, they provide the first report of the existence of the koala, the earliest recorded sighting of a wombat on mainland Australia and the first report of the discovery of the lyrebird, which is for the first time described and illustrated in colour?' (Wantrup). In excellent condition in very good modern bindings. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Poetical Effusions from Fairy Camp by Powell Snell, Esq. Captain in the South Gloucester Militia. In two volumes.

      Tewkesbury: W. Dyde, 1802. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. Two volumes. Tewkesbury: W. Dyde, 1802-1803. First edition. 12mo. [iv],192,vii,[i]; [iv],200,vi pp. Decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces throughout. §Lacks title-pages: these appear to have been discarded by the binder. RARE: BL and Bodleian copies only. Not held at National Army Museum. §Powell Snell - of Guiting Grange, Guiting Power, Gloucestershire; a barrister by profession - was a Captain of Militia from the early 1770s, and raised the First Troop of Gloucestershire Gentleman and Yeomanry (now the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars) in 1795, at Cheltenham. He contributed poetry to the Gentleman's Magazine in the late 18th-century under a soubriquet, and Poetical Effusions from Fairy Camp - his sole known separate publication - seems to have been an attempt to collect his writings as he neared the end of his life. His 'My Own Epitaph, To be in the Church Yard, on a common Stone', rather touchingly concludes the second volume; he died about a year after its publication. From references in several poems (Louis Weltje, Sir John Lade), Snell - by his own acknowledgement a lover of the bottle - appears to have been personally associated with the 'fast' circle of the Prince Regent, and references to Zachary Moore and passing mention of Sterne's writings (whom Snell clearly admired) indicate possible youthful association with the circle of John Hall-Stevenson. Snell seems to have enjoyed a contemporary reputation in fashionable circles as a minor bel esprit. The poems include the usual odes, epitaphs, epigrams, puns, &c., but the overall tone is for occasional, social pieces, and the subject-matter tends towards the local: Gloucestershire and Worcestershire; Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol; female 'toasts' of the day, provincial drinking-houses, etc. 'Fairy Camp' is described by the author as 'a whimsical Retreat of P[owell] S[nell]... So call'd by an elegant lady of taste...Constructed on a small knoll, in the middle of a high hill of about forty yards diameter, in a semicircular plantation of firs and forest-trees, and surrounded by a fanciful railing, defended by a Royal Salute of brass guns...The Marquee built of wood resembling a real one, having the proper facings of the South Gloucestershire Militia. Gothic windows and door; the eaves ornamented with iron laurel-branches, between which, on Gala days, are placed small flags...'. Neatly bound in full contemporary straight-grained red morocco, gilt lettering, gilt and blind decoration, all edges gilt. Ink presentation inscription 'From Emma to Bruce London 9th Feby. 1838' to preliminary blank in each volume, and ink ownership name of recipient - identified by 19th-century owner's pencilled note as Alexander Bruce Dennistoun Sword '(1808-?)', also 1838 - to front pastedowns. Further 19th-century ink ownership name of one A. Whittle to each volume. Occasional internal soiling and trace of removal of early paper label to endpapers. The MISSING TITLE-PAGES aside, a very good set of the verse of an interesting minor poet in a neat & attractive contemporary binding.

        Iris Suziana / Iris de Suze [Mourning Iris]

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Tassaert. Very good condition apart from some light soiling in the top of the image and a small loss at the extreme right edge. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection inLes Liliacéesfrom which this work comes.Les Liliacéesis one of two Redouté masterworks, the other being Les Roses. These works demonstrate the appropriateness of the accolade "Raphael of Flowers", for one is constantly impressed by the exquisite compositional sense and clarity of vision. More than with any other painter, one sees in Redouté's flowers living, breathing beings at their most beautiful moment.Cf. Nissen BBI 1597; cf.Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Dunthorne p 231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747; cf. MacPhaeil, Redouteana, 10.

        Ueber die Musik der Indier. Eine Abhandlung. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt, mit erläuternden Anmerkungen und Zusätzen begleitet von (Johann) F(riedrich) H(ugo) v(on) Dalberg. Nebst einer Sammlung indischer und anderer Volks-Gesänge.

      Erfurt, Beyer und Maring, 1802 - 4 Bll., XVI, 132 S., 1 Bl. (Druckfehler), 56 S. 1 Titelkupfer und 29 (1 gefalt.) Kupfertafeln. Erste deutsche Ausgabe von "On the musical modes of the Hindus" von William Jones, sehr selten. - MGG II, 1871. - Das vorlegende Joseph Haydn gewidmete Werk ist nicht nur die Übersetzung des klassischen Textes von William Jones, sondern durch die Erweiterung des Friedrich Hugo von Dalberg (1760 - 1812) fast als eigenständiges Werk zu betrachten. Friedrich Hugo von Dalberg bekleidete "in Trier, Worms und Speyer die Würden eines Domkapitulars und kurtrierischen Geheimen Rats. Sein Interesse galt aber stets mehr den Wissenschaften und der Musik. Ausgedehnte Reisen (Italien um 1775, England 1798) vermittelten reiche Anregungen, sein umfassendes Wissen auf allen möglichen Gebieten in geistvollen Schriften anzuwenden. Nach zwei Arbeiten über Meteorologie und Strafgesetz (1782) wandte er sich ganz der Musiktheorie und -ästhetik zu. Schon die erste Publikation auf diesem Gebiet (Blicke eines Tonkünstlers in die Musik der Geister, Mannheim 1787) erweist ihn als einen der frühesten deutschen Musikschriftsteller, der der Tonkunst eine metaphysische Idee im romantischen Sinne zugrunde legte" (NDB III, 489). Er fügte dem englischen Original wesentliche Ergänzungen als Ergebnis "jahrelanger Sammlung von authentischen Nachrichten über die Musik der Inder, Perser, Araber und Chinesen bei" (MGG). Hierzu gehört eine Instrumentenkunde (S. 66-84 mit 3 Kupfern), die Sammlung Indostansicher Volksmelodien nach Hamilton Birds 1789 in Calcutta gestochenen Airs of Hindostan sowie eine Folge von 26 Kupfertafeln nach Rogmalas malerischen Synästhesien indischer Tongebilde. - "William Jones, as several scholars have pointed out, was a versatile philologist and a polymath who pioneered new fields of research and wrote on a wide range of topics, including Indian music. His publications, especially his translations of Kalidasa&#146;s play Sakuntala and Jayadeva&#146;s lyrical poem Gitagovinda, had a profound influence on scholars and philosophers in England, France and Germany, and also affected major nineteenth-century poets and novelists. On the Musical Modes of the Hindus was written in 1784 and published eight years later in the third volume of Asiatic Researches, the widely read transactions of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. It was first reprinted ("verbatim from the Calcutta edition") in London in 1799, and a German translation of it appeared as early as 1802 in Ueber die Musik der Indier, a richly illustrated anthology of various European writings on Indian music compiled by Friedrich Hugo von Dalberg. On the Musical Modes of the Hindus is of little relevance today. But two hundred years ago when virtually nothing was known about Indian music in Europe it was a landmark. It was the main source on India for scholars who began debating the origins of music in their general histories. In many of these works, even in some of the histories that appeared at the beginning of the twentieth century, William Jones is quoted as the authority of Indian music. While Jones glorified the greatness of India&#146;s past and had more appreciation for Sanskrit texts on music than the music itself, the importance of his work was that he made European scholars aware of the unique system of Indian ragas. ."

        An Essay on Abstinence from Animal Food, as a Moral Duty.

      Printed for Richard Phillips, No. 71, St Pauls Church-Yard. 1802 - [4], 236pp; 8vo. A little light foxing. Contemporary quarter calf, marbled boards with vellum cornerpieces, gilt banded spine, with ducal gilt crest and the letter &apos;N&apos; at foot, red gilt morocco label. v.g. Bronson, Joseph Ritson, 27; Bitting, Gastronomic Bibliography, page 399. FIRST EDITION. Ritson&apos;s last published work consisted of a defence of his life-long vegetarianism, and has become one of the very earliest manifestos for the cause. He believed that food constituted one of the determinants of human character, and thus carnivores, he insisted, were cruel, choleric and bad-tempered. Meat eating led to robbery, sycophancy and tyranny, and encouraged the predatory instinct. Although his ideas were never to achieve mass appeal, in the early 19th century they were influential. Shelley read the book avidly and became one of the most vociferous converts to this creed, as did his wife Mary, who notably presented Frankenstein&apos;s monster as a vegetarian who refused the food of man and declined to &apos;destroy the lamb and the kid, to glut my appetite; acorns and berries afford me sufficient nourishment&apos;.

FIRST EDITION OF A RARE AND IMPORTANT WORK ON THE SPANISH EXPLORATION OF NOOTKA SOUND AND THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST COAST. Hill calls this a "masterly work.and an account of the voyage commanded by Captains Alcala Galiano and Valdes. They were detailed to make a complete reconnaissance and survey of the continental shore at the east end of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Neah Bay, Esqimalt Bay (where they met Captain George Vancouver's expedition), and Nootka Sound were all visited. several Indian vocabularies are given, including the Eslen, Runsien, and Nootka languages" (Hill 570). In addition to the journal, the work contains a "masterly resumé of Spanish voyages to the coast, written by Martin Fernandez de Navarette, whose name does not appear in the work. He was an accomplished scholar, and his knowledge of Spanish archives was superior to that of any of his contemporaries. The work is sometimes attributed to Jose Espinosa y Tello, the cosmographer on the Malaspina expedition, whose own account of the voyage was published in 1809 but given his accumulated study, it is more likely that Fernandez de Navarrete authored this summary of Spanish exploration of the Northwest Coast, especially in light of the fact that neither Palau nor Sabin associate Espinosa y Tello with the work. Fernandez de Navarrete was a member of a family with long-standing naval tradition and was a career naval officer with access to privileged information. He was instrumental in founding the Deposito Hidrografico in Madrid and compiled a great deal of data about Spanish naval history, including the transcription of over forty immense volumes of rare manuscripts regarding Spanish voyages since the fifteenth century.

Wise (6). The first edition of 1798 comprised one volume only. For the second edition, a second volume of poems was added, with vol. I only designated ?second edition? For the next edition, 1802, the one here presented, vol. I was thus the ?third edition?, while vol. II was the ?second edition? In this edition Wordsworth further expanded the celebrated preface, as well as editing the poems in several places. One of Wordsworth?s poems was excised completely, as well as Coleridge?s ?The Dungeon?, reducing his contribution to just four pieces. The Argument to Ancient Mariner was also omitted. Written into the prelims of vol. I, a sonnet in contemp. ms., commending the work to Fanny: ?These Ballads Lyrical my love, May pleasure give, and time improve.? A slip from Wigan public library, and an earlier bookseller?s description, attributes the inscription to the occasional poet and authoress Anne Cox, 1766-1830. From 1803 she was Mrs Nathaniel George Woodroffe, her most notable publication being Michael, the Married Man, 1827. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Oiseaux dores ou a reflets Metalliques.

      Paris: Imprimerie Crapelet for Desray, An XI, 1802 - AUDEBERT, Jean Baptiste (1759-1800) and Louis Jean Pierre VIEILLOT (1748-1831). Oiseaux dores ou a reflets Metalliques. Paris: Imprimerie Crapelet for Desray, An XI, 1802 2 volumes. 4to (13 4/8 x 9 6/8 inches). Half-titles with general title of the work, title-pages with volume titles, publisher's forward, list of subscribers and notice to the binder, 190 fine color-printed engraved plates (one folding, 5 double-page), many heightened in gold, by and after Audebert, and printed by Langlois (marginal foxing and staining to text and plates, severest on end leaves and verso of plates, fore-edges of Birds of Paradise plates dampstained). Later green morocco backed, marbled paper boards, gilt (a bit scuffed) Provenance: with the later gift inscription to "Thomas A. Powys on his birthday March 18./60. with the best wishes of his very affecte J.N. & G.C. Fazakerley"; with Charles W. Traylen, his invoice dated 3rd August, 1950, sold to; W.H. Phelps, Esq, Jr.; with Sotheby's 26th June, 1998, lot 554 First edition, limited issue, one of 100 quarto sets printed on papier velin with the captions printed in black, of a total edition of 313, which included 200 folio sets with the plate captions printed in gold, 12 folio sets with the plate captions and the text printed in gold, one set printed in gold on vellum, of "one of the most beautiful books of its era" (Fine Bird Books). Audebert's ambitious color-printing process, first employed in his Histoire naturelle des singes et des makis (1799-1800), is used again with stunning results for Oiseaux dores. Even the gold was applied mechanically to the plumage of the iridescent birds, creating a shimmering effect "like medieval illuminations" (Buchanan). The work was issued in 32 parts over 26 months and is divided into 10 sections. Illustrating the extraordinary beauty of the most spectacular species of hummingbirds, jacamars and birds of paradise. Anker says of the magnificent plates, which are heightened with gold, that the 'colours of the birds and their handsome appearance have evidently been the cause of their selection for inclusion in the book. The plates with the bird portraits are in beautiful colours; in this respect they are among the best colour prints found in ornithology'. The plates were etched by Audebert from his own designs and those of 'les plus belles peintres de Paris et de Londres'; Louis Bouquet assisted with the colouring and Langlois with the printing in oil-colours, and the whole process used in the printing of the plates was invented by Audebert. All the colours were printed from a single plate, and oil paint was substituted for the more common gouache. Originally a miniature painter, Audubert became interested in natural history after meeting Gigot-d'Orex in 1789, a wealthy collector of specimens, who employed him to paint some of them. Tragically Audebert died at the young age of 41, and this is the last book he completed before his death. The text is largely by Vieillot who continued the work using Audebert's notes after the latter's death in 1800. The general title actually appears on the half-titles, each volume treating several genera and having its own title-page: (I) Histoire naturelle et generale des colibris, oiseaux-mouches, jacamars et poromerops; and (II) Histoire naturelle et generale des grimpereaux et des oiseaux de paradis. Audebert died as publication of the text was just beginning. Vieillot was chiefly responsible for the final text, which he based on notes Audebert left behind.

Avertissement: "J'avois publié, en 1791, le voyage de Madagascar, qui étoit imprimé depuis plusieurs années. Un incident m'avoit privé de la première partie de cet ouvrage, qui renfermoit mon voyage à Maroc et aux Indes orientales. La perte de cette partie importante de mon travail, dont la majeure partie étoit imprimée, m'a engagé deouis à refondre mon manuscrit, et à y ajouter des recherches nouvelles qui pourront peut-être rendre cet ouvrage d'un plus grand intérêt". Astronome français, Rochon fut chargé, en 1768, de reconnaître les îles et les écueils qui séparent les côtes de l'Inde des îles de France et de Bourbon. Embarqué sur la flûte La Normandie, il arriva à l'île de France le 23 juillet de la même année et, de là, à Madagascar où l'intendant Poivre le chargea d'étudier l'île sous tous ses aspects. Il parcourut les Maldives, longea la côte de Malabar en contournant Ceylan et revint à l'île de France. Dans le premier volume, on trouve le voyage à Madascascar, publié en 1791. Le second volume renferme un Vocabulaire Madégasse et la relation du voyage au Maroc.

        TOUSSAINT L'OUVERTURE FRIEDENSITORER ZU DOMINGO

      [Germany, 1802. Engraved oval portrait, 2 inches round, on a 5 1/2 x 3 inch sheet with an ornamental border. Light wear. Very good. An interesting image of Haitian leader Toussaint L'Ouverture. This small portrait shows him from the shoulders up. He is standing as if in profile, but looks over his shoulder toward the viewer, giving us essentially a full-face image. He wears a military coat and the look on his face is calm, the portrayal dignified. The caption translates loosely as "Toussaint L'Ouverture disturber of the peace in Domingo." Around the time this portrait was made, Toussaint had added Spanish Santo Domingo to his domains, freed the slaves on that half of the island, and organized a new constitution for St. Domingue which declared himself governor of the island for life. Though he had wide popular support, his government was brief and he was captured by deception during a French invasion led by Le Clerc at Napoleon's direction. He died, a prisoner, in France in 1803. An interesting portrait of the famed Haitian leader, an image which we have not encountered before.

        Musen-Almanach für das Jahr 1802.

      Tübingen, in der Cotta'schen Buchhandlung. (Jena, gedruckt bei Frommann und Wesselhöft). 1802. - 12°. VI, 293 S., 1 S. Druckvermerk. Halblederband der Zeit mit rotem goldgeprägtem Rückenschild und wenig Rückenvergoldung. Goedeke VI, 11,16 und 38,59. - Köhring 81. - Lanckoronska-Rümann 34f. - Erste Ausgabe des programmatischen Almanachs der Romantik. Von August Wilhelm Schlegel zusammengestellte Anthologie. Tieck trat zwar als Herausgeber auf, musste aber von Schlegel mehrfach dazu aufgefordert werden, endlich seine eigenen Gedichte und die von Novalis aus dem Heinrich von Ofterdingen einzusenden. Nach dem Schiller 1800 seinen letzten Musenalmanach veröffentlicht hatte, in dem auch die beiden Brüder Schlegel Gedichte publizierten, ergab sich die Möglichkeit für die Romantiker, der klassischen Konzeption von Schillers Almanach mit einer neuen, jugendlicheren Dichtung entgegen zu treten. Entsprechend bitter war die Reaktion Schillers, der fand "die Manier dieser Herren und ihre ganze daraus hervorschimmernde Individualität ist mehr so ganz und gar zuwider, dass ich gar nicht dabei verweilen kann". Neben den Gebrüder Schlegel, Tieck, dem unter dem Pseudonym "Bonaventura" schreibenden Schelling waren auch weniger wichtige Autoren wie die Schwester und der Schwager von Tieck und der Bruder von Novalis, Karl von Hardenberg u.a. beteiligt. Der bewusst schmucklos gehaltene Almanach war kein Erfolg. 1805 waren von den 2000 gedruckten Exemplaren fast 1300 unverkauft. - Die Gedichte "Todten-Opfer" von A.W. Schlegel sind hier handschriftlich mit dem Zusatz "für Auguste Böhmer" versehen. - Einband berieben. Rückenkante angebrochen. Durchgehend, am Anfang und am Schluss stärker, gebräunt und fleckig.
