        Die Rosen nach der Natur gezeichnet und colorirt mit kurzen botanischen Bestimmungen begleitet. Les Roses dessinees et enluminees d'apres nature avec une courte description botanique.

      1802. Leipzig, Industrie-Comptoir, (1802-1817). Parts 1-10 (of 12, bound in 1 volume). Large 4to (312 x 255mm). With 50 (of 60) beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Recent half calf, gilt ornamented spine (preserving old label). The rarest of the great iconographies on roses. Of the two famous botanical collections formed last century, the Plesh and the de Belder collection, the Plesh collection did not have a copy of the present work and the de Belder collection only had parts 1-6. Stock, in his famous bibliography on roses, published in 1984, could not find a library with more than 10 parts. The reason is that Roessig had died after part 10 and that parts 11 and 12 were continued by C.F. Waitz, most probably in a very small edition.The excellent plates, some printed in red and green, were engraved by Louise von Wangenheim. Each part has five plates and 12 pages of text, only part 7 has 16 pages and part 9 20 pages. This beautifully produced work on roses was only preceded by Mary Lawrance's 'A Collection of Roses' London 1799. Roessig condemns the work of his predecessor for the 'inaccuracy of her botanical draughtsmanship' (Henrey II, p. 580). In turn, Redoute criticized Roessig for lack of botanical accuracy. Some slight foxing to the text. Stafleu & Cowan 9429; Stock 2456..

        Astragalogia nempe Astragali, Biserrulae et Oxytropidis nec non Phacae, Colutae et Lessertiae, historia iconibus illustrata.

      1802. Parisiis, J.B. Garnery, 1802. Large-folio (560 x 360 mm). pp. viii, 218, with 50 engraved plates (by Pierre Joseph Redoute). Contemporary blind stiff boards, spine with gilt-lettered black label. "Two folio editions of this work were published in 1802, of which this is the large paper. The small paper folio, according to Nissen, has 269 pages" (Cat. Redouteana, pp. 44-45 ). Candolle in his 'Memoires' gives a charming picture of the composition of the work with Desfontaines: "Tous deux, aux coins de sa cheminee, nous passions nos matinees, lui a achever sa 'Flore Atlantique' et moi a decrire mes astragales; nous consultions reciproquement sur les objects qui exigeaient des observations delicates". "All of these publications have retained their scientific importance not in the least because of the exact and informative drawings by Redoute. The same is true of A.P. De Candolle's botanical monographs 'Astragalogia'(1802) and 'Strophanthus' (1803). Both these books are now collector's items: the large paper edition of the former as well as all copies of the latter are very rare" (Cat. Redouteana p. 18). All the magnificent plates are after drawings by P.J. Redoute, engraved by Plee, Tardieu, a.o. A fine uncut copy. Stafleu & Cowan 984; Nissen BBI, 319..

        Recherches sur la nature et les causes de la richesse des nations; traduction nouvelle, avec des notes et observations par Germain Garnier. Volumes I-V. [FIVE VOLUMES, THE CORRECTED ISSUE].

      Paris, Agasse, 1802.. Five volumes. Crown octavo. Pp. cxxvii (Preface), 368; 493; 564; 556; 588. Engraved frontispiece, signed by B. L. Prevost, to the first volume. All half-titles present. Extended comprehensive index, footnotes. Hardcover, uniformly bound in handsome contemporary half polished calf and speckled boards; spines gilt ruled, each with a cherry-red, gilt morocco title-label, and an oval, gilt-and-black morocco volume-number label, set within gilt-embossed wreath. Paper over inner hinges of volume I split, not affecting binding which remains firm and tight. Nice embroidered ribbon marker to each volume. In about fine condition (some annotations in light coloured pencil in one volume). A very handsome set. ~ Adam Smith's (1723-1790) work is the first major expression of organized study of social wealth. "'The Wealth of Nations' is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is completely convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought." (PMM 221). The present, much admired French translation of Smith's "Wealth of Nations", by the French poet and economist Comte Germain Garnier (1754-1821), became the standard, definitive French text. (Palgrave 1894-1901). Garnier's elegant Preface to this edition contains a summary of the doctrine of Smith, a comparison between the same and that of French economists, and a parallel between the wealth of France and that of England. - - The present set is the scarce corrected issue, published without the 5 errata slips (one to each volume) and conforms to Einaudi's 5340 description..

        Ueber Johann Sebastian Bachs Leben, Kunst und Kunstwerke. Für patriotische Verehrer echter musikalischer Kunst

      By Johann Nikolaus Forkel. Finely engraved frontis. port. of Bach & two engraved plates of music. x, 69 pp. Large 4to, cont. marbled boards. Leipzig: Hoffmeister & Kühnel, 1802. First edition and a nice copy. This, Forkel's biography of Johann Sebastian Bach, "stands at the beginning of the 19th-century Bach revival. Although he did not have access to many of Bach's works apart from the keyboard compositions, his account of Bach as a performer and teacher is a vivid record of the life of the musician whom Forkel regarded as the highest representative of the art. Much of the information came directly from Bach's sons Carl Philipp Emanuel and Wilhelm Friedmann."-New Grove, Vol. 6, p. 707. Forkel (1749-1818), music historian, theorist, and bibliographer at the University of Göttingen, is justly regarded as the founder of modern musicology. .

        Mmoire historique et politique sur La Louisiane, par M de Vergennes, Ministre de Louis XVI, Accompan d'un Prcis de la vie de ce Ministre, et suivi d'autres Mmoires sur l'Indostan, Saint-Domingue, la Corse et la Guyan

      Paris: Chez LePetit jeune, libraire, An X.- 1802.. Engraved portrait frontis, xxiv, [25]-315 pp. (with half title) Sm. 8vo. Contemporary speckled calf, gilt title and decoration on spine, marbled endpapers. First edition. Sabin 98971. Streeter III: 1573. Howes V74. Raines: 208. Brunet IV: 14019. Includes six items covering: Louisiana (and Canada), p. [25]-181; India (l'Indostan), p. [183]-228; Haiti (Saint-Domingue), p. [229]-239; Corsica (Corse), p. [241]-251; Guiana (Guyane), p. [253]-272; and "Lettre de M. le chevalier Turgot, a M. le duc de Choiseul. Paris, le 10 octobre 1765", p. [273]-300, with each section having separate half titles except for the last. Vergennes was a French diplomat serving as Foreign Minister from 1774 during the reign of Louis XVI, who helped to conclude a treaty with the American Colonies. The first section on Louisiana and Canada was probably written about 1777, published only after France had reclaimed Louisiana but shortly before its acquisition by the United States. Much interesting material on both New France and Louisiana. A few sources argue the work was not by Vergennes. A very good copy, rebacked with original backstrip laid down, edge wear, some leaves browned, occasional minor dampstain.

Contemporary ownership inscription dated Paris, 1804 on titlepage. Some light toning and soiling, heavier to first and last leaf. Bookplate on rear pastedown. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase. First edition of this exceedingly rare French imprint promoting the possession of Louisiana in the early 19th century. It was published during the brief return of France's control of the territory between the Spanish and American periods of ownership between March and December 1803. The large folding map, "Carte de la Louisiane et du cours du Mississipi avec les Colonies Anglaises," is a revised version of Guillaume Delisle's map first published in 1718. The work includes a history and description of the colony, a description of the natives of the area and their customs, and the state of commerce in the region. Dubroca, who evidently published the work himself, argues for a much greater French presence in Louisiana. SABIN 21028. HOWES D526, "b." STREETER SALE 1572. SIEBERT SALE 682.

        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'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'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

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'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'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). A very good copy.
