Clocks, watches, clockwork, sundials, clepsydras, timers, time recorders and marine chronometers are all examples of instruments used to measure time. People interested in horology are called horologists. That term is used both by people who deal professionally with timekeeping apparatus (watchmakers, clockmakers), as well as aficionados and scholars of horology. Horology and horologists have numerous organizations, both professional associations and more scholarly societies

        The Friend of Women: Translated from the French of Bourdier [sic] de Villemert. By Alexander Morrice

      London: Printed by Knight and Company...for the Author: Sold by H. D. Symonds..., 1802. FIRST EDITION OF THIS TRANSLATION. 8vo, 210 x 135 mms. [iii] - vii [viii Contents], [5] - 164, recently rebound in quarter calf, morocco label, linen boards. A very good copy Boudier de Villemert (b. 1716) published L&#39;Ami des Femmes in Paris in 1758, and it was first published in English in London in 1766. The work seems to have been as popular in America as it was in France, as most translations in the 18th century were published in America. Morrice&#39;s translation is different from the 18th century ones. The work consists of 13 short chapters on such matters as the rank of women in society and the studies suitable to women, where he observes, "To prohibit women from any kind of study, is to treat them as Mahomet did, who, in order to render them more voluptuous, judged it convenient to deny their having any soul."

        Les Furies dans les Euménides c.à.d les Bénignes

      Delalain, Paris 1802 - Boettiger dit Böttiger Karl August (1760-1835) ~ Les Furies dans les Euménides c.à.d les Bénignes ~ A Paris, Delalain, an X (1802). In-8, (1f), viiipp, 126 pp. demie-percaline du XIXe siècle. D'après les poëtes et les artistes anciens par M. Boettiger, directeur du Gymnase de Weimar, avec quatre gravures dont deux enluminées par le professeur Meyer Traduction de l'allemand par T.F. Winckler employé au Cabinet des Antiques de la Bibliothéque nationale In-8 à grandes marges. 4 remarquables figures hors texte, gravées par Tardieu, dont 1 dépliante. Ex-libris du Plessis de la Morandière. ". Nach seiner Hochzeit 1786 mit Karoline Eleonore Adler wechselte er 1790 als Rektor nach Bautzen. Auf Vermittlung Herders übernahm er 1791 die Leitung des Weimarer Gymnasiums und wurde dort Oberkonsistorialrat mit dem Zuständigkeitsbereich schulische Angelegenheiten. Bis zum Beginn der neunziger Jahre hatte sich B. in seinen Schriften fast ausschließlich pädagogischen Problemstellungen und der Interpretation antiker Autoren gewidmet. Aufgrund dessen fungierte er in Weimar unter anderem als altphilologischer Berater von Goethe und Schiller. Am neuen Wirkungsort erweiterte sich aber auch der Horizont seiner eigenen Interessen. Der Maler und Kunsthistoriker Johann Heinrich Meyer machte ihn näher mit der bildenden Kunst des Altertums bekannt. In den daraus resultierenden Schriften über antike Archäologie und Kunstgeschichte setzte sich B. insbesondere mit der Interpretation der auf den Kunstwerken bildlich dargestellten mythologischen Themen auseinander. Dem Alltagsleben der Römer war das erfolgreiche, aber wegen seiner vermeintlichen Freizügigkeit auch umstrittene Buch `Sabina, oder Morgenscenen im Putzzimmer einer reichen Römerin' gewidmet. B. verfaßte darüber hinaus nicht nur unermüdlich Beiträge zu den verschiedensten Zeitschriften, sondern war selbst der faktische Herausgeber mehrerer Organe, deren Publikation nominell von anderen besorgt wurde. Darunter befanden sich Wielands `Neuer Teutscher Merkur' (1794-1809) sowie Friedrich Justin Bertuchs `Journal des Luxus und der Moden' (1797-1803) und `London und Paris' (1804). ". La lecture des Euménides d'Aeschyle devait nécessairement conduire à la monographie présente où sont représentés les habillements inventés par le poëte tragique. Ce plaisant ouvrage du début du XIXème siècle est toujours d'actualité et qui d'entre nous n'a-t-il pas rencontré une gorgone sur son chemin ? [B3] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Musen-Almanach, für das Jahr 1802

      Tübingen: in der Cotta&#39;schen Buchhandlung, 1802. 12mo (16cm; 6.25"). vi, 293, [1] pp. 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&#39;s two poems were from his as then unpublished novel, Heinrich von Ofterdingen. This is => the first issue of Schlegel & Tieck&#39;s literary annual, patterned on the original Musen-Almanach (1796&#150;1800) of Schiller, to which both were contributors. They broke with Schiller&#39;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&#39;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). A very good copy.

        Die akustik

      Leipzig: Breitkopf und Hartel. 1802. First edition, 4to, pp. [2], xxxii, 310, engraved vignette portrait on title page, 11 folding plates; original marbled paper-covered boards, paper label on spine; binding and label rubbed, but a good, sound copy, unrestored; contained in a brown leather slipcase. "Chladni (1756-1827), professor of physics in Breslau, was the first to reduce the general association between vibration and pitch to a tabular basis, and thus to lay the foundation of the modern science of acoustics. His first results were first reported in New Discoveries in the Theory of Sound, 1787, and were greatly enlarged upon in Acoustics, 1802. He spread sand on plates made of metal and glass, which were fixed in clamps. He then applied a violin bow to the edge of each plate and recorded the patterns produced thereby in the sand. These figures are still known by Chladni&#39;s name" (Printing and the Mind of Man 288b). Chladni was from an early age interested in music, and was himself an amateur musician &#147;who designed and constructed two keyboard instruments, the euphomium and the clavicylinder, both being variations of the glass harmonica&#148; (see DSB for a detailed account of his life and experiements).

      1802. [Trial]. [Body Snatching]. Dorrance, John [1747-1813], Plaintiff. Report Of The Case John Dorrance Against Arthur Fenner, Tried at the December Term, of the Court of Common Pleas, In the County of Providence, A.D. 1801. To Which are Added, The Proceedings of the Case of Arthur Fenner vs. John Dorrance, Carefully Compiled from Notes Correctly Taken by Several Gentlemen Who Were Present During the Whole Course of the Trial. Providence: Printed by Bennett Wheeler, 1802. iv, 116 pp. Octavo (8" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into nineteenth-century three-quarter morocco over marbled boards. Spine and corners worn but sound, hinges starting. Light browning and occasional faint dampspotting to text, internally clean. * First edition. A bizarre case involving a suit and counter suit between a justice of the Court of Common Pleas (Dorrance) and the Governor of Rhode Island (Fenner), who libeled Dorrance with a charge that he exchanged the body of a suicide left in his care to one Dr. Pardon Bowen for a one beaver hat, which Dorrance "had the impudence to wear ... while ... officiating as moderator of a town meeting ..." Dorrance and Fenner were obviously political rivals, and the trials resulted in two confusing verdicts, but the real interest here is the medical background, which recounts in great detail the measures taken by local medical doctors and their students to acquire corpses for classroom dissection.

        (d'ALBEDYHLL, Gustaf.) Piéces authentiques, qui servent à éclair la conduite du baron d'Albedyhll, (alors ministre de Suède en Dannemarc) dans l'affaire, qui se passa à Copenhague, au commencement de l'annèe 1789.

Suite des pièces authentiques, qui servent à eclaircir ma conduite &c. et mon sort, après de justification obtenû. (Stockholm, 1802?). 4:o. (2), 77-103 s. Häftad, i samtida marmorerat pappersomslag. Fint exemplar, ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Setterwall 3304: "Arbetet indraget af författaren och ytterligt sällsynt". Åhlen 17:341 not. Det sällsynta företalet som skall utgöra sidan 3-4 saknas här, som nästan alltid. Det saknas även i Kungliga bibliotekets exemplar. Detta är dock en variant, tryckt tillsammans med ett annorlunda titelblad, med citat av Cyprianus och Plinius samt med dedikation till föräldrar och vänner. Inga extra blad har funnits i detta exemplar. Andra delen innehåller brevväxling mellan d'Albedyhll och Ehrenheim. Gustaf d'Albedyhll (1758-1819) var diplomat och från 1787 minister vid svenska ambassaden i Köpenhamn. Han blev lite motvilligt en av nyckelpersonerna i fänriken Lars Benzelstiernas plan att vintern 1788-89 bränna upp en rysk eskader som ankrat i det isbelagda Öresund. Planen röjdes dock på förhand och Gustav III, som själv var informerad, kände sig komprometterad och fann sig föranlåten att rappelera d'Albedyhll från Köpenhamn, degradera honom till minister i Hamburg och låta honom ensam klä skott för den misslyckade attentatsplanen. d'Albedyhll vägrade dock att anta posten och krävde upprättelse, vilket han fick först i november 1792. Hans diplomatiska karriär var dock över, och han ägnade sig därefter huvudsakligen åt skriftställeri och boksamlande. Hans tryckta arbeten, som ofta inte tillhandahölls genom bokhandeln, innehåller värdefullt material till samtidens diplomatiska historia, och kretsar mycket kring händelserna 1789
