The Tatler, the precursor to The Spectator, was started by Richard Steele as Isaac Bickerstaff and operated from April 12, 1709 to January 2, 1711). The Spectator, founded by Steele and Joseph Addison, attempted to correct some of the problems Steele had encountered during the run of the Tatler. The Spectator ran from March 1, 1711 to December 20, 1714, with a suspension from December 7, 1712 to June 17, 1714. During this time, Steele founded another newspaper entitled The Guardian, which ran from March 12 to October 1, 1713. The edition printed here contains the addition of no. 176, "Three Letters, by John Hughes; designed for the Guardian." The Rambler, published by Edward Cave, was edited and often written by Samuel Johnson and ran from March 20, 1759 to March 17, 1752, while The Idler was a collection of essays by Johnson which originally appeared weekly in the Universal chronicle from April 15, 1758 to April 5, 1760. With John Hawkesworth, Johnson also founded and wrote the periodical The Adventurer, which ran from November 7, 1752 to March 9, 1754. The World, edited by Edward Moore ran from January 4, 1753 to December 30, 1756 and predominantly focused on the interests of the upper class while The Connoisseur, run by George Colman the Elder and Bonnell Thornton from January 31, 1754 to September 30, 1756, acted as its counterpart for a more middle-class readership. The Mirror, which ran from January 23, 1779 to May 27, 1780, and its continuation, The Lounger, dating from February 5, 1785 to January 6, 1787, were both originally published in Edinburgh by Henry MacKenzie in the style of The Spectator.

        MÉMOIRE OU COU-D'OEIL RAPIDE SUR MES DIFÉRENS VOYAGES ET MON SÉJOUR DANS LA NATION CRËCK

      Paris: de l'imprimerie de Giguet et Michaud, 1802.. [4],331,[1]pp. Half title. Contemporary half calf and marbled paper boards, gilt. Spine ends and corners worn. Edges and portions of the marbled boards chewed or abraded. Nineteenth-century bookplate on front pastedown, modern bookplate on rear pastedown. Small burn hole on titlepage, minor foxing, some marginal dampstaining. Good. A remarkable account of a Frenchman's travels and adventures among the Creek Indians in the Mississippi Valley in the late 1770s and early 1780s. Some of the details in this narrative are sufficiently extraordinary that various commentators have questioned Milfort's veracity. "There are, however, corroborative circumstances which confirm his statements, and induce us to give a fair degree of credence to his narrative. At the time of his arrival among the Creeks, a half-breed named McGillivray, had obtained so great an influence over them by his talent for organization, that he had actually acquired the rank of head chief. Milfort was received with great cordiality; married his Indian sister, and in a short time was made commander of the warriors of the nation. He led them against both the Spaniards and the Americans, and by his aid the Indians defeated the forces of each in several skirmishes" - Field. "The truth is that Milfort was a hopeless liar; and as a result his book is one of the most interesting and curious books of French travel in America in the eighteenth century...His book is often hostile to the colonists. Certain descriptions of life among the Indians and frontiersmen are interesting. But what confidence can be placed in a man who was capable of describing how he, in command of six thousand Indians, had defeated George Rogers Clark and an army of ten thousand regulars!" - Monaghan. "It would take more time than I have so far been able to give to guess whether or not it is fiction" - Streeter. This book is dedicated to Napoleon; Milfort signs himself in print on the titlepage: "Tastanégy ou grand Chef de guerre de la nation Crëck." The Siebert copy in 1999 was the first to have appeared at auction since the Streeter sale in 1967. HOWES M599, "b." SABIN 48949. FIELD 1065. SERVIES 761. ECHEVERRIA & WILKIE 802/37. GRAFF 2792.

        An Historical Sketch of the Civil War in the Vendee from its origin to the peace concluded at La Jaunaie. Translated from the French

      Paris: by J Smith at the English Press, 1802. xxxi and 286 pages. Slightly worn contemporary calf; the text is evenly browned throughout; there are some rather untidy notes on the endpapers. 'The English Press' churned out translations for British tourists in the interval of peace after the Treaty of Amiens. In line with Napoleon's new policy of trying to lure the emigres home, this book is much more sympathetic to the royalists than earlier ones like Westerman (1794) and Danican (1796).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Franz Xav. Süßmayr").

      Wien, 1. XI. 1802.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to.. "Schätzbarster Freund! Ich überschicke Ihnen hiermit die übrigen Stücke des Ballets: Die Schwestern in Benaventer Wald [?]. Es ist mir lieb, daß ich meine Anmerkungen zur Uibersetzung selbst geschrieben habe; so haben wir für dieses und ein andere mal zum 2ten Ballete Niemand Fremden dazu nöthig; folglich auch keine unnöthigen Ausgaben, als das Wenige Post-Porto, was sich nicht so hoch belaufen wird, als die Bezahlung für einen fremden Uibersetzer. Dieses machte auch weitläufigere Umstände; so aber bleibt die Sache zwischen uns beyden allein. Mich freut es recht sehr, ein kleines musikalisches Geschäft mit Ihnen zu haben. Richten Sie also die Sache nach Ihrer Uiberlegung und Gutdünken ein. Ich werde nicht ermangeln, was meiner Seits obliegt, getreulich zu leisten; ich habe daher auch alles Zutrauen zu Ihnen. Sie werden die Anmerkungen so wie in den Ihnen schon mitgegebenen Stücken finden. Ich hoffe von Ihnen bald eine Antwort des richtigen Empfanges und Ihrer glücklichen Zurückreise, und ein kleine Nachricht von Sternberg, oder sonst was gescheides und artiges von Ihrer Gegend und Revier. Es ist ja wegen unserm Negoz auch zu thun [...] Vergessen Sie wegen Hrn. Andree zu Offenbach nicht, vielleicht ist es ihm erwünscht mit mir auch einige Correspondenz zu bekommen; wodurch uns das Geschäft vortheilhafter und interessanter werden kann". - Süßmayr, Schüler von Salieri und Mozart (und angeblicher Vater von Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart), wurde 1794 Kapellmeister der deutschen Oper im Wiener Nationaltheater; "in dieser Stellung verblieb er, nachdem ein Gesuch um Bestellung zum Hofkomponisten [...] abgewiesen worden war, bis zu seinem durch Lungentuberkulose erfolgten Tod. Süßmayr war u. a. mit A. Stadler, A. Stoll, F. X. Glöggl, M. Haydn, I. Schuppanzigh und P. Wranitzky befreundet und ist 1801 mit Beethoven zusammengetroffen. Sein musikalischer Nachlaß wurde zum größten Teil vom Hause Eszterhazy erworben" (MGG XII, 1698). - Am Gegenblatt verso Empfängernotizen.

        Meriwether Lewis, writing as secretary to Thomas Jefferson, invites Dolley Madison to dinner

      Autograph Letter Signed "M. Lewis", to Mrs. [Dolley] Madison, Washington, D.C., February 10, 1802. 1 p. 7.625" x 5". In full: "The President through me presents his most respectful compliments to Mrs. Madison and assures her he will be very happy in the company of herself and such other ladies as Mrs. M. may think proper to bring with her this evening?" Wednesday. Feb. 10. 1802. M. Lewis.? Addressed to ?Mrs. Madison.?When Thomas Jefferson entered the White House in 1801, he had been a widower for almost two decades. In the absence of a First Lady, he relied on fellow Virginian Dolley Madison, the wife of his Secretary of State James Madison, as his hostess for social functions. Dolley?s charming?"and at the time single?"younger sister Anna regularly accompanied her. ?Anna was a belle of Washington society,? wrote Richard Côté, ?and she so impressed Thomas Jefferson that he always chose her as his hostess for social events if Dolley was not available.? Eleven years Dolley?s junior and knowing how taken Jefferson was with her, it is likely that Anna was one of the ?such other ladies? whose company Jefferson would be ?very happy? to have at the party on February 10th. Lewis served as the President?s private secretary from Jefferson?s inauguration until 1803, when he left to lead the expedition that bears his, and William Clark?s names. A Virginian, Lewis had know Jefferson since childhood and also acquired much of his knowledge of natural history and love of the outdoors through self-study. At age 20, he joined a local militia company to help suppress the Whisky Rebellion. To secure advancement, he joined the regular army in 1795. In his duties as paymaster, he traveled considerably throughout the Ohio Valley, going to posts such as Fort Wayne, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Detroit, where he had opportunities for contact with native flora, fauna, and Indian tribes. These travels gave him necessary experience for the expedition he would lead two years after he wrote this brief letter. At this point in his career, though, Lewis resided in Jefferson?s White House, performing a wide range of duties. By hand, Lewis delivered Jefferson's annual address to Congress in December 1801 (to be read aloud by a clerk of the House). Lewis?s tasks as Jefferson?s secretary included organizing his social calendar and dinner parties. These were elegant affairs. ?However he may neglect his person, wrote Philadelphia judge Mahlon Dickerson, he ?takes good care of his table. No man in america keeps a better.? Four days before this invitation to Mrs. Madison, Lewis dined at the White House with ten other guests. Even on a small scale, the President?s French culinary staff offered no less than ten selections, beautifully arranged in covered dishes, and concluded the meal with fine wines and cheeses. The party on February 10, 1802, for which this is Dolley Madison?s invitation, saw a reprise of chef Honoré Julien?s signature dessert. Samuel Mitchill, a New York Democratic Congressman and lifelong seeker of scientific and natural knowledge, marveled about the dessert in a letter to his wife. ?The party was easy and sociable, as all these parties are,? he wrote afterwards. ?Among other things ice-creams were produced in the form of balls of the frozen material inclosed in covers of warm pastry, exhibiting a curious contrast as if the ice had just been taken from the oven.? Some historians have suggested that this was the predecessor to Baked Alaska. Popular culture credits Dolley Madison for being the first person to serve ice cream at the White House during her husband?s Presidency. However charming a story, it is not true. George Washington spent almost $200 on the confection in the summer of 1790. Recorded as early as the Roman Empire, ice cream had been in America since at least 1744 (and likely earlier), when Barbara Jannsen, Lord Baltimore?s daughter and Maryland Governor Blandon?s wife, served the dish. If ice cream was foreign to Dolley before she served as Jefferson?s social hostess, his team of French chefs certainly opened her palate to it. However, all was not social in Jefferson?s White House that day. Earlier, the President had addressed members of the Delaware and Shawnee Indian nations, and four days before that, Congress had recognized a state of war with Tripoli and authorized the arming of merchant ships. Lewis?s letters rarely come on the market.Meriwether Lewis (1774-1809) was best known for leading, along with William Clark, the expedition that explored the Louisiana Purchase from 1804-1806. He was a largely self-taught naturalist and outdoorsman, and soldier in the Army?s First Infantry Regiment. In 1801, he joined Thomas Jefferson?s staff as his personal secretary. In 1804, Jefferson picked his old friend and fellow Virginian to lead the transcontinental expedition. Jefferson named him Governor of the Louisiana Territory in 1807. Lingering effects of wounds suffered returning from the expedition dogged him until he died under mysterious circumstances, apparently by suicide, in 1809. Dolley Payne Todd Madison (1768-1849) was the wife of the fourth U.S. President, James Madison. Born a Quaker, she was expelled from the society upon her marriage to Madison. When he became Secretary of State in 1801, their household, which included son Payne and younger sister Anna, moved to Washington, D.C., where she and her sister quickly became the centers of Washington social life. Known for her hostess skills, she has been called the first ?First Lady? in the modern sense of the role. Dolley is credited with saving the Gilbert Stuart painting of George Washington as British forces torched the White House in 1814. ConditionFine. Professionally conserved.

        Description de l'Egypte : ANTINOE. Vue du portique du théâtre (vol. IV pl. 55)<br />

      Original etching in plano extracted from the 'Imperial Edition' of the Description of Egypt or Series observations and research made in Egypt during the French expedition, published by order of His Majesty the Emperor Napoleon the Great. Conducted between 1802 and 1830, she was taken in 1000 copies available to institutions. Laid paper with watermark see-through ancient and modern Egypt, protected by winds. Wonderful romantic view of the ruins of the portico of the Roman Antinoë theater, a city founded by Emperor Hadrian in 132 AD. JC on the right bank of the Nile in Middle Egypt. One can see the officers of the French army examining the remains in the company of the local population. The theater was almost completely déparementé, it draws more than two full Corinthian pilasters and still wearing their capitals columns. Beyond that, we see the grove by the river Nile and the hills of ruins that are the preserve of Antinoë site. Tiny marginal foxing not affecting at all the board, otherwise excellent freshness and preservation. The monumental first edition of the Description of Egypt in 13 volumes contained 892 colored plates of which 72, including 9 volumes involved antiquity. The other volumes dealt with the Natural History and modern Egypt as Napoleon Bonaparte had brought with him a commission of scholars from all disciplines so that, they said, in his description was stored the richest museum of universe. The work was written in part by Baron Dominique Vivant Denon before he became DG of Napoleon in the Louvre Museum. More than 80 artists and 400 writers were hired for this huge project. The dimensions of the exceptionally large boards necessitated the creation of a special press and a specific piece of furniture to keep them ...!

        Description de l'Egypte : FAYOUM. Vues d'un temple égyptien situé vers l'extrémité occidentale du lac appelé Birket el Qeroun (vol. IV, pl. 69)<br />

      Original etching in plano extracted from the 'Imperial Edition' of the Description of Egypt or Series observations and research made in Egypt during the French expedition, published by order of His Majesty the Emperor Napoleon the Great. Conducted between 1802 and 1830, she was taken in 1000 copies available to institutions. Laid paper with watermark see-through ancient and modern Egypt, protected by winds. Views of an Egyptian temple located on the western shore of Lake Birket el-Qeroun which is visible in the background and in the distance the Libyan chain. On the side of the column headed French engineers and their caravan. Downstairs original view of the front of the same temple observed nightly in his déparementé state, the stone from demolition lying on the ground all around. This is the top floor that has been degraded, exposing the foundations of his flat roof. Beyond the dunes of the surrounding desert can be seen. Perfect condition, almost without freckles marginal.

        Gladiolus Watsonius/Glayeul a fleurs de Watsonie [Watson's Geichzunge]

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Pierre-Joseph Redoute was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redoute went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Theatre italien. Redoute 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, Redoute came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redoute a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redoute's understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redoute'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 Redoute brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Liliacees from which this work comes. Les Liliacees is one of two Redoute 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 Redoute'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.

        DICCIONARIO geográfico-histórico de España, por la Real Academia de la Historia. Sección I. Comprehende el Reyno de Navarra, señorío de Vizcaya y Provincias de Álava y Guipuzcoa

      Madrid, en la imprenta de la viuda de Joaquín Ibarra 1802 - 4º mayor (25,6 x 19 cm.) 2 vols. I: Port., XXXII-515 p. II: 2 h. inc. port., 567 p. Pasta española de época, lomo liso,hilos dorados, tejuelos. El Diccionario geográfico-histórico de España de la Real Academia de la Historia fue concebido como una obra de utilidad pública para conocer la geografía e historia. La idea de mejorar sus reglas y hacerlo completo, y el cambio de método en 1797: alfabético general de todos los reinos y provincias en su conjunto por alfabético particular, demoraron su publicación. En 1799 se preparó la sección primera (reino de Navarra, señorío de Vizcaya y provincias de Álava y Guipúzcoa), de la que se tenía mayor información. Francisco Martínez Marina abordó todo el trabajo referido a la provincia de Álava; Joaquín Traggia lo referente a Pamplona y Estella; Manuel de Abella se hizo cargo de Sangüesa, Tudela y Olite; y Vicente González Amao se encargó del Señorío de Vizcaya. Solo se llegó a publicar otro volumen más, la Sección II, referida a La Rioja, quedando el proyecto inconcluso. Perfecto ejemplar, muy limpio y bien encuadernado.

        Über die Bestimmung des Weibes zur höhern Geistesbildung.

      Berlin, Frölich, 1802.. 8°. XIV SS., 1 Bl., 300 SS., 2 (1 w.) Bll. Neuerer Buntpapierumschlag. Seltene erste Ausgabe dieser Schrift der Pädagogin und Frauenrechtlerin Amalia Holst (1758-1829), deren Vater, der Göttinger Professor für Staatsökonomie und Naturwissenschaft Johann Heinrich Gottlob von Justi sich ebenfalls für den Zugang junger Frauen zu höherer Bildung eingesetzt hatte. Amalia Holst formuliert ihre Verwunderung, dass sich zu diesem Thema bisher nur Männer geäussert hätten. Im Vorwort lobt sie ausdrücklich Hippel, die Thesen von Carl Friedrich Pockel kritisiert sie dann scharf. Ihre These lautet: "die höhere Ausbildung des Geistes steht nicht im Widerspruch mit dem näheren Beruf des Weibes als Gattin, Mutter und Hausfrau". Über andere Berufsmöglichkeiten der Frauen äussert sie sich jedoch nicht. - Nur zu Beginn etwas gebräunt und knittrig, sonst meist sauber. Ganz unbeschnitten und sehr breitrandig.

        A tour, performed in the years 1795 - 96, through the Taurida, or Crimea, the antient kingdom of Bosphorus, the once - powerful republic of Tauric Cherson,....

      Printed for Nichols and Son 1802 Complete with 2 folding maps, 3 full - page plates, and numerous text illustrations. Dark green half calf with marbled boards, title stamped in gilt on spine; very minor worming on a few pages, some staining to the maps, some tears to first map in the creases, as well as repair with aged tape. Aside from some minor soiling, generally in good condition. First edition of this travel account of Crimea and the Black Sea region, written in the form of letters by a female traveler. The author?s husband, Matthew Guthrie, compiled and translated these letters from French, adding a sizeable Appendix of his own to the volume, describing coins, medals, and other artefacts of the area. Guthrie?s letters include a variety of subject matter, from anecdotes and larger - than - life personalities, to the history of the region and its many cultural treasures. One particularly amusing passage is a description of a whirling dervish ceremony, which she attributes to the use of the poppy: ?I believe it was under the influence of this last juice, that this Tartar group were moving at such a rate.? Another interesting letter deals with Jews in the Crimea. Despite the considerable amount of information presented in this volume, there is very little of the intimacy that might be expected in letters from wife to husband. This probably had to do with Mr. Guthrie?s editorial prerogative - it has been suggested that he added much of the historical material presented (See Papmehl). Maria Guthrie (d. 1800) was a French woman, formerly the Countess Marie de Romont, ?acting Directress of the Imperial [Smolny] Convent for the education of the female nobility of Russia.? She married in 1871, and had two daughters. Matthew Guthrie (1743 - 1807) was a Scottish medical doctor who spent a significant amount of time in Russia under the employment of the Russian government. He rose to the rank of Chief Medical Officer to the Army Corps of Noble Cadets and published a number of medical articles, though his passion seems to have been Russian Antiquities - he published a work on the subject in 1795 (Dissertation sur les antiquités de Russie).

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Paris, 23. IX. 186[?].. 1 S., 8°.. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Sainte-Claire Deville war Professor in Besancon und Paris und stellte 1854 erstmals technisch Aluminium her. Er erforschte die Platin-Metalle und entdeckte zusammen mit Friedrich Wöhler das kristallisierte Bor und Silicium. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. -

        Maenura Superba [Lyre Bird]

      London: Cadell and Davies, 1802. Handcoloured engraving, 267 x 200 mm.; good, mounted. After Thomas Watling. Fine hand-coloured impression of this famous depiction of the "Maenura Superba" or Superb Lyre Bird.The present engraving which was published in David Collins' An Account of the English Colony in New South Wales (see catalogue no. XX) is thought to be after a sketch by the convict artist Thomas Watling. Watling arrived on board the Royal Admiral in October 1792, whereupon he was assigned to the surgeon John White as an artist. When White left the colony in 1794 Watling was attached to the Judge Advocate General David Collins, and it is known that many - if not all - of the plates in Collins' work were after his originals. In the text accompanying the lyre bird plate it merely comments that it is 'from the pencil of a capital artist.'.

        The Divina Commedia

      London: by A. Strahan; for T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies,, 1802. consisting of the Inferno?-Purgatorio?-and Paradiso. Translated into English verse, with preliminary essay, notes, and illustrations, By the Rev. Henry Boyd... 3 volumes, octavo. Attractively bound in contemporary mottled calf (probably Irish), covers with stylised acanthus border roll in gilt, spines divided in compartments by double gilt decorative rolls, double black labels, gilt harp ornaments, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges. Housed in a black cloth leather entry slipcase. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Dante by Thomas Stothard. Engraved bookseller's ticket of T. Barrett, Cambridge, in vol. I. Contemporary ownership inscriptions, "J. H. Lloyd e donis C. Molloy". Some slight wear to the deliberate cracklure effect on mottled sides, imperceptible repairs to foot of joints of vol. III, a very good set in a handsome Regency binding. First edition of the first English version of the complete Divine Comedy to be published. The translator Henry Boyd (1748/9?-1832) was a Church of Ireland clergyman. "The edition's value was in assisting to re-establish an audience for Dante, whose reputation had suffered a decline in the previous century. It was dedicated to Viscount Charleville, whose chaplain Boyd was until the Irish rising induced him to resign his post" (ODNB). Boyd had previously in 1785 published by subscription a two-volume translation of the Inferno only, with a specimen of the Orlando Furioso of Ariosto, which in itself was only the second English version of the Inferno. Boyd's translation was the version used as captions for John Flaxman's Compositions from the divine poem of Dante Alighieri (1807).

        Musen-Almanach, für das Jahr 1802

      Tübingen: in der Cotta'schen Buchhandlung 12mo (16cm; 6.25"). vi, 293, [1] pp.. 1802 Poetry, including lyric poetry by the two editors and such others as "Inhumanus," "Sophie B[ernhardi]," "Bonaventura," "Mnioch," and "Novalis." Bonaventura was the pseudonym of Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling and Novalis the pseudonym of Georg Philipp Friedrich Freiherr von Hardenberg; the latter's two poems were from his as then unpublished novel, Heinrich von Ofterdingen. This is => the first issue of Schlegel & Tieck's literary annual, patterned on the original Musen-Almanach (1796–1800) of Schiller, to which both were contributors. They broke with Schiller's adherence to the "old" and championed Romanticism in their publication. => All of the poems are early entrants in the German Romantic movement. Besides being the title of both those annuals, "Musen-Almanach" is a long-established genre term for these literary annuals published in Germany from ca. 1770 to the middle of the 19th century. Original publisher's wrappers with printed paper spine label, grey-green outside, light blue inside; dust-soiled with spine darkest. Uncut and partially unopened, with occasional light foxing (only).

        The new American practical navigator: being an epitome of navigation; containing all the tables necessary to be used with the nautical almanac. the whole exemplified in a journal, kept from Boston to Madeira in which all the rules of navigation are introduced.

      printed.by Edmund M. Blunt, (Proprietor.) for Cushing & Appleton, Salem [1802], Newburyport, (Mass.) - First edition, 8vo, pp. xvi, 17-246, [286], 533-589, [7]; engraved folding frontispiece map of the North Atlantic (showing the flow of the Gulf Stream), 7 engraved plates; a good, sound copy or better in original full sheep, neatly rebacked to style and preserving the original red morocco label; half brown morocco clamshell box, elaborate gilt decorations on spine. Bowditch, the famed astronomer and mathematician from Salem, not only translated, but also substantially edited, reorganized and made accessible La Place's Mechanique Celeste ("an epoch in American science" -- DAB). Little need be said about his Navigator. It was the standard work on navigation and piloting from the time of its first publication in 1802 (Bowditch had in 1799 issued a revised version of Moore's Navigator) right up to the present day. The work contains detailed sections on all aspects of mathematics, mathematical and navigational instruments, astronomy, geography, mensuration, surveying, the moon and tides, compass variations, ballast, piloting and seamanship, marine insurance, cargo, mercantile forms, etc., and a 15-p. nautical vocabulary. "The first complete epitome of practical navigation for the common man. Often termed the greatest book in the history of navigation, this intellectual achievement of our early culture was indispensible to the maritime and commercial expansion of the nineteenth century" -- Grolier, American 100, 25.

        Über die Erziehung des Menschengeschlechts durch den Staat.

      bey Gerhard Fleischer d. Jüngern,, Leipzig, 1802 - Leipzig, bey Gerhard Fleischer d. Jüngern, 1802. 8vo. 310 S., 1 Bl. Zeitgenössischer Pappband. (Papier stellenw. leicht gebräunt). Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten. - Zachariae (1769-1843) verfasste die vorliegende Arbeit an der Universität Wittenberg, wo er mit Novalis und Theodor Hell in Verbindung stand. Hier beendete Zachariae sein Studium (1794) und startete mit dem Erwerb der Lehrbefähigung (1795) seine akademische Karriere. Im Jahre 1795 erfolgte die Promotion, 1800 dann der Ruf zum a. o. Professor, 1802 zum o. Professor an die Universität Wittenberg. Von Wittenberg ging Zachariae erst im Jahre 1806 nach Heidelberg, wo er bis zur Emeritierung blieb. Die vorliegende Schrift ist wohl stark durch die französische Revolution inspiriert, noch vor den Erfahrungen der Napoleonischen Epoche. (Papier stellenw. leicht gebräunt).
