        Description D'Une oreille de charrue, offrant le moins de resistance possible, et dont l'execution est aussi facile que certaine

      Paris: Chez Les Freres Levrault, 1802. First edition. Hardcover. Maroon library cloth, Very good. Pages 322 - 329 with a full page plate bearing ten figures (illustrations) for the construction D'une oreille de Charrue -- Jefferson's new design for a plough-ear which he tested in Monticello. This article appeared in "Annales du Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle" -- Tome Primiere with 32 engraved plates (2 folding, one colored). Jefferson wrote to A. Thouin, a major contributor to the Society: "I have made a small alteration in the form of the toe of the Mould-board, which, while it preserves the principle untouched enables us to shorten the ploughshare six to eight inches, which is preferred by the agriculturists here to the first form." He sent Thorin a small box containing the model, and calls himself "not to be adept, but only a zealous amateur in the objects of the society." Ex-library, Harvard College bookplate.

      Charleston: Printed by W.P. Young, 1802. [4],252,[1]pp. plus three maps (two folding, one of them colored in outline), three plates (two folding), and two folding tables. Original blue paper-covered boards, tan paper backstrip, paper spine label lettered in black. Minor edge wear. Light foxing, toning to one plate. In all, an excellent copy, mostly unopened, wholly untrimmed and unsophisticated. In a cloth case, leather label. The superb Siebert copy of Drayton's great work on South Carolina, one of only 500 copies printed. Drayton became governor of South Carolina in January 1800 and served until December 1802. This book was composed and written during that period, when he travelled extensively throughout the state, including the more remote reaches of the upper country. His wide-ranging interests and position led him to accumulate materials on practically every aspect of life in South Carolina at the time, including natural history; Indians; minerals; raising rice, tobacco, and corn; inland navigation; commerce and manufactures; and various social and charitable activities. Drayton's work is well illustrated, with a large map of South Carolina, one of the Santee Canal, and plates showing the State House, rice cultivation, and fossils discovered in the up-country. After the book was completed, Drayton obtained a map of Winyaw Bay, and had a postscript and the map printed and tipped into some copies. This copy contains this rare insert, both the postscript and map, frequently lacking; copies often do not have a complete complement of plates and maps, and even the Streeter copy lacked the map of South Carolina. An unmatchably superb copy in absolutely original condition. STREETER SALE 1137. HOWES D492, "aa." SABIN 20815. CLARK II:88. REESE, FEDERAL HUNDRED 90.

M.: Comische Erzählungen. Johann Ludwig Ambühl bildete sich als Autodidakt und wurde als Nachfolger seines Vaters Lehrer in Wattwil. Literarische Anregung empfing er in der „Toggenburgischen moralischen Gesellschaft", der auch Ulrich Bräker angehörte, mit dem Ambühl befreundet war. 1782 wurde Ambühl Hauslehrer der Stieftochter des J. L. Custer in Rheineck. Mit seinem Zögling reiste er 1786 nach Straßburg, 1788 nach Genf. 1790 begleitete er seinen Brotherrn auf einer Reise nach Italien. Seit 1796 weilte A. in Altstätten. In der Zeit der Helvetik war er Distriktstatthalter im Oberrheintal. Als Dichter steht A. stark unter dem Einfluß der Sturm- und Drang- Bewegung, zumal des jungen Goethe. Seine Werke sind großenteils von vaterländisch-freiheitlichem Gefühl getragen. Ludwig Friedrich August Wieland (1777-1819), Sohn des Dichters Christoph Martin Wieland, studierte in Jena und promovierte dort. Der bei einem Treffen zwischen ihm, Heinrich von Kleist, Heinrich Geßner und Heinrich Zschokke 1802 begonnene Dichterwettstreit führte zur Entstehung des Lustspiels "Der zerbrochne Krug" von Kleist. Zwischen 1809 und 1811 war er Bibliothekar bei den Fürsten Esterházy in Wien; später ging er zurück nach Weimar und Jena. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Critische Darstellung der Gallschen anatomisch-physiologischen Untersuchungen des Gehirn- und Schädelbaues. Mit beygefügten historischen Notizen über Herrn Doctor Gall und dessen neueste Schicksale in Wien.

      - Zürich, bey Ziegler, 1802, kl.-8°, (2), 182 pp., Pappband d.Zt.; feiner Pappband. Selten! Erste Ausgab, anonym "W - r " erschienen, und fälschlicher Weise oft Johann Adam Walther zugeschrieben. *) Erste Würdigung der Franz Joseph Gall'schen (1758-1828) Lehre aus wissenschaftlicher Sicht von dem berühmten Chirurgen und Ophthalmologen Philipp Franz v. Walther (1782-1849). "Wien den 9. Sept. 1802. "Erklärung des Doktor Gall über ein vor kurzem erschienenes Werk unter der Auffschrift "Kritische Darstellung der Gallschen anatomisch - physiologischen Untersuchung des Gehirn- und Schedelbaues ." (Aus einem Briefe desselben gezogen)." "Sie fordern mich auf, Ihnen mein Urtheil über die kritische Darstellung meiner Untersuchungen u.s.w. mitzuteilen, und zu bestimmen, in wie fern man sich aus derselben über den Gehalt meiner Lehrsätze unterrichten könne. Das angezeigte Werk wurde mir von einer unbekannten Hand zugeschickt, und ich freue mich, darin eine treue und richtig gefaßte Darstellung meiner Gehirn - und Schedellehre zu finden, welche sich unter der Menge größerer und kleinerer Schriften, in denen meine Grundsätze theils mangelhaft, theils außer - allem wissenschaftlichen Zusammenhange vorgetragen wurden, vorteilhaft ausgezeichnet. Sowohl die allgemeinen Ansichten meines Systems als die Bestimmung der Sitze einzelner Organe sind durchaus richtig und verläßlich angegeben ; so wie auch der historische Theil dieser Abhandlung die Aufeinanderfolge der neuesten Ereignisse und Verfügungen in meiner Sache genau darstellt. Nur wäre es sehr zu wünschen, daß der mir unbekannte Hr. Verf. Eine mehr verständliche Schreibart gewählet, und sich bey der Darstellung meiner Lehre der Terminologie der kritischen Schule enthalten wollen. Obgleich ich in der Druckschrift den Herrn W - R als nen sehr denkenden und einsichtsvollen Mann kennen lerne, der nothwendig in meinem Privatumgange sich die gründliche Einsicht in mein Lehrsystem erworben haben muß, welche er an allen Stellen seiner Abhandlung verräht, so kann ich doch hieraus seinen Namen nicht errathen, da ich mir schmeichle, durch meine Vorlesungen die persönliche Bekanntschaft vieler vortrefflichen Köpfe erlangt und bey ihnen Interesse für meine encephalognomische Untersuchungen erregt zu haben. Uebrigens wünsche ich, die besagte Darstellung möge recht viele Leser finden, und das Publikum möge dieselbe so lange zur Basis seines Urtheils über den von mir gehandelten Gegenstand nehmen, bis ich selbst durch die Herausgabe meines Werks näheres Licht über das Detail meiner Lehre verbreiten kann. Joseph Gall." Johann Jacob Hartenkeil, Medicinisch-chirurgische Zeitung, 1802/4, pp.301-302. "Gall war auf eine Theorie der Hirnfunktion gestoßen, die größte Bedeutung erlangen sollte. Er war ein Pionier kortikaler Lokalisationstheorie, wenn auch auf Grund falscher Überlegungen. Edwin G. Broing faßte den Beitrag der Phrenologie treffend zusammen, als er sagte: "Die Theorie Galls und Spurzheims ist ein Beispiel für eine Theorie, die trotz ihrer Irrtümer geeignet war, weiteres wissenschaftliches Danken anzuregen". Dank der Phrenologie bewegte sich die Vorstellung der geistigen Funktionen "von der Idee der immartiellen cartesianischen Seele weg in Richtung auf eine materielle Theorie der Nervenfunktion. Die Irrtümer der Phrenologie lagen eigentlich nur in Einzelheiten und in dem Fanatismus ihrer Anhänger." E.G.

        Égypte. Atlas annexé au mémoire sur la communication de la Mer Rouge à la Méditerranée.

      [Paris, l'Imprimerie Imperiale], 1802. - Folio (354 x 526 mm). (2) pp., 5 engraved folding maps and plans. In the publisher's original blue marbled wrappers. (Includes:) Le Père, [Jacques-Marie]. Mémoire sur la communication de la Mer des Indes à la Méditerranée, par la Mer Rouge et l'Isthme de Soueys. [Paris, l'Imprimerie Imperiale, 1809]. 21-186 pp. (With:) Bois-Aymé, [Aimé] du. Mémoire sur les anciennes limites de la Mer Rouge. 187-192 pp. Modern white boards with giltstamped black spine label. Folio (290 x 442 mm). The five-plate atlas to accompany the mémoire regarding the possibility of constructing a modern canal from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea via the Isthmus of Suez, which J.-M. Le Père, chief engineer of the Ponts et Chaussées, would submit to Napoleon in 1803. The plates include a hydrographical map of Lower Egypt and the Isthmus, a plan of the port of Suez, a plan and view of the "Fontaine de Moïse", a synoptic chart of the (supposed) various water levels along the Isthmus, and a plan of the city and ports of Alexandria. Even here, in their earliest publication, dated 1802 on the title page, the plates already bear the numbers under which they would be published in 1809 and 1817 within the monumental "Description de l'Égypte", bearing witness to the accuracy with which the editors had planned their famous work. Indeed, the commission to distil into a publication the enormous amount of data accumulated in Egypt by Napoleon's savants had only been established in February 1802, and the table of contents (on the reverse of the title page) specifies that "ces planches font partie du grand Atlas de l'ouvrage de la Commission d'Égypte, état moderne". - Le Père's mémoire itself was not published at all before it formed part of the "Description": a copy of this first publication, removed from part II: État Moderne, volume 1, is included with this set (it would be published independently, with the atlas, in 1815). - During the 1798 campaign in Egypt, Napoleon's officers had discovered remnants of the ancient "Canal of the Pharaohs", a west-east waterway built under Darius I of Persia that linked the Nile and the Red Sea. Napoleon contemplated the construction of a north-south canal to connect the Mediterranean with the Red Sea, and Le Père was commissioned to investigate the possibility of building such a canal. While the plan was abandoned because it wrongly concluded that the sea levels were different and the waterway would require locks, the report was important as a basis for Ferdinand de Lesseps' successful plans for the Suez Canal many decades later. - Occasional foxing to margins of plates, binding somewhat loosened in places, but in excellent condition altogether. Very rare. Ibrahim-Hilmy 374. OCLC 492528366. Gay 1999. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      [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.

        Anacreontis Odaria, ad textus Barnesiani fidem emendata.

      Londini: Gul. Bulmer & Soc., 1802. 8vo (21.5 cm, 8.4"). [2], 130 pp.; illus. First Forster edition and first Bulmer printing thereof: a handsome example of the ever-popular songs of Anacreon, edited and prepared by Edward Forster (1769–1828) based largely on Barnes' influential text. This production made excellent use of the Greek font cut for printer William Bulmer by William Martin, who had trained under Baskerville; Martin's distinctive serifless type was designed without ligatures. Lavinia Banks Forster, the editor's wife, supplied the illustrations — the elegantly printed text is ornamented with => 20 copper-engraved vignettes. The Annual Review & History of Literature for 1803 described the resulting volume as an "exquisite specimen of typographical skill," while Dibdin called it an "elegant work" that "confers great credit on the printer."    Binding: Contemporary red straight-grained morocco, ornately framed and panelled in gilt and blind, with central medallion and corner fleurons composed of gilt-stamped and blind-tooled motifs, spine likewise combining gilt and blind decorations. Board edges and turn-ins with gilt roll; pastedowns framed in blind with blind-tooled corner fleurons. All edges gilt and gauffered, over earlier marbling.    Provenance: Front pastedown with bookplate of American collector John Taylor Bottomley (1869–1925); front free endpaper with early inked inscription: "Vn. Thomas ex dono Com. de Sunderland 1806." Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).         Dibdin, I, 266–67; NSTC A1179; Schweiger, I, 25–26. Bound as above; spine very slightly sunned, joints and edges showing moderate rubbing. Front pastedown and endpaper with bookplate and inscription as above. Mild to moderate foxing. => A stunning volume.

        A Voyage up the Mediterranean in His Majesty's Ship the Swiftsure, one of the Squadron under the Command of Rear-Admiral Sir Horatio Nelson, K.B. with a Description of the Battle of the Nile on the first of August 1798, and a Detail of Events that occurred subsequent to the Battle in various parts of the Mediterranean.

      London: T. Bensley for J. White 1802 - First Edition, 4to: titlepage, xxiii including engraved dedication to Earl St Vincent, folding uncoloured aquatint map, pp. 309, complete with 41 aquatint plates by J.C. Stadler in sepia. They include a plan of the battle by Capt. R.W. Miller of the Theseus composed ‘the following morning’. Wood-engraved tail-pieces in text. Contemporary polished calf, with previous decorative backstrip and letterpiece preserved. Replacement endpapers. In 1798 Willyams, Vicar of Exning, Suffolk, served as chaplain of HMS Swiftsure (Capt. Hallowell), in the squadron under the command of Admiral Nelson. A competent draughtsman, he had previously served as chaplain of HMS Boyne and produced views during the British campaign of 1794 in the West Indies. He was present at the great British victory at the Battle of the Nile 1-3 August 1798 and provides an eyewitness account of the fighting. His is “the first, the most particular, and the most authentic account of the battle” (DNB). He remained with the ship for a further two years. The illustrations from drawings on the spot include views of Sicily, Egypt, Venice, Minorca and Gibraltar, as well as inhabitants of the Mediterranean seaboard and British servicemen on and off-duty, also Egyptian antiquities. According to his Preface, Willyams felt only a seaman was qualified to depict scenes of the actual fighting, and for accuracy commends three large engravings after Capt. Weir to the reader. 32 of the plates were reprinted for the posthumously published Selection of views in Egypt, Palestine, Rhodes, Italy, Minorca, and Gibraltar, in 1822. CONDITION: Very small wormhole close to fore-edge developing from circa p. 39 onwards, turning into small trace in last few leaves. Plates and text unaffected. Leading corners of binding a little bumped, with damage to gilt tracery at lower right corner of upper cover. Contents generally very clean. SIZE: 285 x 225mm, 11¼ x 9 ins. REF: Abbey Travel 169.

        Schriften. Hrsg. v. Fr. Schlegel und Ludwig Tieck. 2 Bände. Titel, XII, 338 S.; Titel, 552 S. Halblederbde im Stil d. Z. mit 2 farb. Rückenschildern und reicher Rückenvergoldung (v. Hahn).

      Berlin, Realschulbuchhandlung, 1802. - Erste Ausgabe eines der berühmtesten und seltensten Bücher der deutschen Romantik, ein Jahr nach Novalis Tod erschienen. Enthält fast ausschließlich Erstdrucke, vor allem den des 'Heinrich von Ofterdingen'. Diese "Apotheose der Poesie" gilt als ein Schlüsselwerk der Frühromantik. Die Einzelausgabe des Romans im selben Jahr wurde von diesem Satz abgezogen und separat mit eigenem Titelblatt herausgegeben. Die große Seltenheit erklärt sich daraus, dass weder der Dichter selbst noch die beiden Herausgeber genügend bekannt waren, um eine größere Auflage (nur 500 Exemplare) zu rechtfertigen. Der mit 29 Jahren gestorbene Novalis gilt als der bedeutendste Dichter der deutschen Romantik. In seinem Werk verbindet sich tiefe Innerlichkeit mit höchster Sprachvirtuosität. Auf ihn geht das Symbol der "blauen Blume" der Romantik zurück. Novalis' Bedeutung wurde von dem Jenaer Kreis schon zu Lebzeiten erkannt, und Tieck und Schlegel gaben ein Jahr nach seinem Tod diese bis heute gültige Gesamtausgabe seiner Werke heraus und waren sich dabei ebenso uneinig wie beim Musen-Almanach. "Beide gingen zwar mit dem Gefühl ans Werk, sie hätten heilige Reliquien zu verwahren . Zuerst einmal mußte Tieck davon überzeugt werden, daß jeder Versuch, den unvollendeten 'Ofterdingen' zu vervollständigen, eine ungeheuerliche Blasphemie wäre" (Paulin, Biographie, S. 128). Die 'Schriften' enthalten neben 'Heinrich von Ofterdingen' die 'Blütenstaubfragmente', 'Die Lehrlinge zu Sais' und die 'Hymnen an die Nacht', eine Verherrlichung seiner verstorbenen Geliebten Sophie v. Kühn. – Titel von Band 1 mit handschriftl. Besitzeintrag "Julie Kopstadt, geb. v. Clermont. Essen 1804". Dieser Titel ist durch Entfernen eines Exlibris verso leicht knitterig sowie mit altem Papier hinterlegt. In jedem Band je ein Vorsatzblatt mit alten handschriftl. Eintragungen. Stellenweise . In jedem Band je ein Vorsatzblatt mit alten handschriftl. Eintragungen. Minimal nicht störend fleckig, Band 2 mit Braunfleck auf den Seiten 85-166 im oberen Rand, 2 Bl. mit kl. Tintenspritzern, 2 Bl. am Anfang im Bug sporfleckig (Text nicht berührt). Sonst frisches und sehr breitrandiges Exemplar. – Goed. VI 51, 4; Brieger 1872; Borst 925; Deneke 977.

        Die hellstrahlenden Plejaden am arabischen poetischen Himmel, oder die sieben am Tempel zu Mekka aufgehangenen arabischen Gedichte. Uebersetzt, erläutert und mit einer Einleitung versehen.

      Münster, P. Waldeck, 1802. - 8vo (16.5 : 9.5 cm). XXIV, 216 S. Erste vollständige deutsche Übertragung der im Orient beliebtesten Anthologie vorislamischer Beduinendichtung. Al-mu?allaqât bedeutet ?die Aufgehängten?, sieben preiswürdige, mit Gold gestickte und in der Ka?ba ausgespannte Gedichte. Hartmann (1774-1838), ein Schüler Eichhorns in Göttingen, übersetzte nach arabischen Originalen soweit zugänglich, ansonsten nach der englischen Version von William Jones (1783). Goethe entlieh das Werk in Frühjahr 1815 der Weimarer Bibliothek. Katharina Mommsen hat den weitreichenden Einfluß nachgewiesen, den insbesondere Hartmanns Einleitung und Kommentar auf den west-östlichen Divan ausübten. - Laut Aufdruck am Rückdeckel wurde der das ?Aufhängen? typographisch symbolisierende Pappband 1931 vom Münsteraner Buchhändler Joseph Thiele zu seinem 25-jährigen Jubiläum ausgegeben, offenbar über Bögen einer erhaltenen Restauflage. - Goedeke VII, 780, 140, 5 (= 587, 49, 2); Schnurrer, no. 206; Mommsen, Goethe und die Moallakat, 1960, passim. - Durchgehend etwas gebräunt und stockfleckig, Titel und Schlußblatt stärker. Selten. Bedruckter Pappband von 1931 über originalen Druckbögen. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
