      1802 - admitting Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas INGLIS a member "after tryal taken by the Judges of the Company", with the Company's fine pendant Seal, 2¼ inches in diameter on a white-green-white ribbon, showing two archers holding their bows and arrows upight on either side of a yew tree, on the reverse are figures of Cupid "In Peace" and Mars "And War", the document beautifully engraved with manuscript additions, 8" x 15½", Edinburgh, 18th September tiny original indentation at one letter of the seal inscription without its loss, otherwise excellent The Society of Archers, founded in 1676 for recreation and improvement of archery, obtained a charter from Queen Anne as a Royal Company in 1713. Since 1822 and George IV's visit they have been the Sovereign's Body Guard for Scotland, Thomas Inglis was in 1787 a Lieutenant in the 39th Foot and in 1789 a Captain, receiving the Burgess Tickets of Nairn and Ayr respectively in those years as a mark of esteem. In 1801 Inglis was promoted Captain in the North Lowland Fencibles (raised in 1794 for home service, disbanded 1802). Their Colonel (1799-1802) was the distinguished soldier John Hope, (1765-1823, from 1816 4th Earl of Hopetoun), an Archer since 1788, who perhaps sponsored Inglis on this occasion. As its Captain-General from 1819, Lord Hopetoun, on 15th August 1822, with half the archers, received George IV at Holyrood (the other half had escorted the king from the quayside at Leith), and later entertained the king at Hopetoun House. In 1802, Thomas Inglis, on joining the Edinburgh Regiment of Militia, was promoted Major, and in 1809 Lieutenant-Colonel, with the latter rank also in the Army if called to active service.

        Portrait, Kniestück, stehend an einem Tisch voller Bücher, Hände aufgestützt auf einen Stuhl, gemalt von F.Tischbein, gestochen von Friedrich Müller Stuttgart, 368 x 270 mm.

      - Nürnberg, bei Johann Frauenholz & Co., 1802, auf 507 x 370 mm; minimal fleckig am Rand. Selten, unbeschnitten, frischer Abzug von der "1te Original Platte". - Christoph Wilhelm Hufeland, in Berlin, "einer der berühmtesten und verehrtesten Aerzte seiner Zeit, war am 12. August 1762 zu Langensalza in Thüringen geboren ; sein Vater und sein Grossvater waren Leibärzte am Weimar'schen Hofe, auch ein Oheim übte die ärztliche Kunst aus. HUFELAND lebte von seinem dritten Jahre an in Weimar, studirte von 1780 an in Jena und Göttingen und wurde hier 1783 Doctor mit der "Diss. inaug. sistens usum vis electricae in asphyxia experimentis illusratum". Nach Weimar zurückgekehrt, musste er sofort die weit ausgedehnte Praxis des fast erblindeten Vaters übernehmen und lag derselben, die sehr mühevoll war, mit vielem Glücke zehn Jahre lang (bis 1793) ob. Mit den Weimar damals zierenden grossen Geistern, wie Wieland, Herder, Goethe, Schiller hatte er nicht nur Umgang, sondern hatte Gelegenheit, sie als ihr Arzt noch genauer kennen -zu lernen. Sein erster literarischer Versuch war ein Aufsatz: "Mesmer und sein Magnetismus" (Deutscher Mcrcur, 1785), in welchem er das Ungründliche und Unphysische der Sache aufzudecken und Alles auf Sinnestäuschung und selbst Sinnlichkeit zurückzuführen sich bemühte. Sein erstes, 1787 erschienenes Buch war eine Abhandlung "Ueber die Ausrottung der Pocken", in welcher er nach seinen in einer äusserst bösartigen Pockenepidemie zu Weimar gemachten Erfahrungen, die Absonderung, damals das einzig denkbare Schutzmittel, vorschlug; auch war seiner Anregung die Errichtung des ersten Leichenhauses in Weimar zu danken. Gleich in seinen ersten literarischen Arbeiten zeigte sich das Streben HUFELAND's, seine Erfahrungen nicht bloss den Fachkreisen, sondern dem grossen Publicum nutzbar zu machen und gehört HUFELAND zu den hervorragendsten Aerzten Deutschlands, deren Arbeiten auch unter dem Laien-Publicum die weiteste Verbreitung gefunden haben. 1793 wurde er vom Herzog von Weimar nach Jena als Prof. ord. honor. berufen, wo seine Vorlesungen den verdienten Beifall fanden, besonders die Makrobiotik, die er in dem grossen Auditorium vor bis zu 500 Zuhörern öffentlich vortrug. Nachdem er schon im Jahre 1794 durch eine Schrift: "Erinnerungen an alle Mütter, denen die Gesundheit ihrer Kinder am Herzen liegt" , die später, 1799, eine Erweiterung erfuhr : "Guter Rath an Mütter über die wichtigsten Punkte der physischen Erziehung der Kinder in den ersten Jahren", auf die physische Erziehung seine gemeinnützigen Belehrungen ausgedehnt hatte, erschienen im Jahre 1795 seine "Ideen über Pathogenie", 1796 die "Kunst, das menschliche Leben zu verlängern", von der 3. Auflage (1805) an unter dem Titel: "Makrobiotik", eine Schrift, die zahlreiche Auflagen erlebt (8. Aufl. 1860) und in alle europäischen Sprachen übersetzt, eine Verbreitung in der ganzen Welt gefunden hat. Auch der Journalistik sich zuwendend, gab er von 1791 an (bis 1800) die "Neuesten Annalen der französischen Arzneikunde und Wundarzneikunde" heraus, setzte dieselben im Verein mit B. N. G. SCHREGER und J. CHE. F. HARLESS als "Journal der ausländischen medicinischen Literatur" bis 1803 fort, nachdem er 1795 bereits das "Journal der praktischen Arzneikunde und Wundarzneikunst" begonnen hatte, das bis zu seinem Tode, 1836, in 82 Bänden (1809-14 mit K. HIMLY, 1815-18 mit J. CHE. F. HARLESS , seit 1821 mit E. OSANN zusammen herausgegeben) erschien, zu den angesehensten, reichhaltigsten, lehrreichsten medicinischen Zeitschriften in deutscher Sprache gehörte und auch nach seinem Tode noch bis 1844 fortgesetzt wurde. Mit dem Journal verband er seit 1799 eine kritische Zeitschrift: "Bibliothek der praktischen Heilkunde", an die sich seit 1803 eine von FB. L. AUGUSTIN herausgegebene alljährliche, wissenschaftliche Uebersicht der gesammten medicinischen Literatur und der Leistungen in allen Fächern der Heilkunde schloss. - Durch seine Bekämpfung des BROWN'schen Systems (1799), .

This was the work he is remembered for and it made his fame, and brief fortune rapidly, selling over 28,000 copies in 3 years, even his own copy was only a 5th edition. This his 2nd work includes the 3rd edition of that first romantic poem making two works in one. The Farmer's Boy was composed and created all from memory. Whilst living in Bell Alley, London. He memorised the poem The Farmer's Boy in its entirety before purchasing paper to write it out as this was a greater expense than could be afforded on a whim. None of his other works fared as well and despite the acclaim and praise he died penniless and neglected in 1823. Melodic and unforced romantic poetry. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

An important nosology of acute diseases, attempting to systematize all factors, including the weather. Pinel, a Paris physician appointed as physician to a notorious mental hospital, found many of the patients in chains, some having been so for many years. Shocked by the conditions he uncovered, he insisted on humane treatment of the patients with specially selected physicians to treat them. He devoted the rest of his life to psychiatry and treatment of the insane. Pinel (1755-1826) war ein berühmter Psychiater. Sein "unsterbliches Verdienst um die Psychiatrie ist es, zuerst auf die menschlichere Behandlung der Irren gedrungen zu haben... Aber auch für die Entwicklung der inneren Medicin ist P. von grosser Bedeutung geworden, indem er ... den Grundsatz aufstellte, dass die Med. ein Zweig der Naturwissenschaften sei und dass daher, wie bei diesen, auch die analytische Methode statt der bisher beliebten synthetischen Platz greifen müsse. Er suchte daher die Diagnose der Krankheiten aus den Symptomen zu stellen, denen er die pathologische Anatomie unterordnete." (Hirsch V, p. 609). Very Good.

        Déclaration des principes du Général Toussaint". Lettre de Toussaint Louverture , Gouverneur de Saint Domingue, au Citoyen Pascal, Secrétaire Général. Datée de Santo Domingo, 22 nivôse an X ( 12 janvier 1802).

      1802 1802 - Manuscrit de 4 pages in-folio, 105 lignes, dont 4 lignes de la main même de Toussaint Louverture. Signée. Sous chemise et étui bordé de maroquin. (Etui moderne) Exceptionnelle lettre de Toussaint Louverture, adressée à Pascal le 12 janvier 1802 et transmise par celui-ci au Général Boudet le 6 février 1802. Comme le note (page 4) le chef de l’Etat Major du Général Boudet, «cette pièce originale . contient la Déclaration des principes du Général Toussaint». Toussaint répond à une lettre de Pascal, datée du 9 nivôse an X (30 décembre 1801), qui affirme qu’il sait qu’une expédition française «doit venir anéantir cette colonie, y rétablir l’esclavage et détruire les hommes qui l’ont défendue envers et contre ses ennemis.» Pascal répand cette nouvelle auprès des colons et des officiers de Toussaint, tentant de provoquer chez eux dissensions, découragement et renoncement. Ancien représentant des Métis à Paris pendant le Directoire, affairiste, émissaire officieux de Bonaparte, Pascal entre au service de Toussaint Louverture, dont il devient le secrétaire général en 1800. C’est en fait un agent double, un traître, intrigant au sein même du Conseil Secret de Toussaint Louverture. «J’ai reçu les volumineuses réflexions que votre imagination a conçues sur mon compte et que vous m’avez adressé le 9 de ce mois. Il paraît par les idées que vous développez dans cet écrit que vous êtes instruit que la France . Il paraît que par la manifestation de cette opinion vous avez déjà corrompu une grande partie des Européens qui habitent cette colonie .Il paraît que vous avez communiqué votre cahier d’observations à ceux des officiers avec lesquels vous êtes liés pour les porter dans le cas de l’événement que vous y annoncez à s’écarter du point d’honneur auquel ils doivent être fidèles jusqu’à la mort. Quoique vous ayez le talent de lire dans l’avenir, je ne regarde pas moins vos réflexions comme pernicieuses à la colonie . Vous dîtes que quelques expressions de mon Adresse du 19 frimaire vous ont déchiré le cœur. Vous avez eu tort de vous torturer l’esprit pour en deviner le sens. Je suis l’impulsion de mon cœur et il ne m’a pas encore porté à faire le mal, et j’ai toujours dit la vérité. Depuis que j’ai pris les armes, j’ai toujours cherché à faire le bien et je le ferai toujours jusqu’à ce que Dieu me retire de ce monde. Quant à moi, je vous dirai que lorsqu’on est déjà mort, on n’a pas peur de mourir. L’injustice des hommes n’aura jamais lieu de me surprendre parce que je m’y suis toujours attendu. Elle m’affligera mais ne m’abattra pas parce que je me rappellerai que J.C. a été calomnié, méprisé et avili et que je puis bien l’être moi-même qui ne suis qu’un homme et qu’un pêcheur; mais je répéterai alors cette phrase de ma proclamation du 29 frimaire, si on veut m’anéantir: Je suis soldat. Je mourrai en homme.» Pour conclure cette longue missive dictée, Toussaint-Louverture, blessé par ce qu’il pressent être une trahison, prend la plume et écrit de sa main 4 lignes qu’il signe:»Vous a ve pri cet liberte de mecrire pour a voire une pies soutien au ca devenement et bien le voila signé de moi, faite votre profis. Toussaint-Louverture.» C’est le même Pascal qui conseilla à Toussaint de se rendre au rendez-vous fatal où il fut arrêté, le 7 juin 1802. En février 1802, 20000 hommes envoyés par Bonaparte, dirigés par Leclerc et partis de France en décembre 1801, débarquent dans l’île. Pascal savait donc le 30 décembre 1801 au plus tard les intentions du Premier Consul. On connait d’assez nombreuses pièces signées de Toussaint. En revanche les lignes écrites de sa main sont rarissimes. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Ängelske Sid-Captenens, federmera Predikantens Johan Newtons synnerligen märkwärdiga Rese- och Leswernes-Beskrifning... Pastoren Doctor T. Haweis...

      Stockholm: Carl Fr. Marquard, 1802. Small octavo, wear to title-page and final text leaf, contemporary half calf lending-library binding with original borrowing rules pasted to front paste-down, Very uncommon: the first Swedish edition of this series of letters by the English clergyman and former slave-ship owner, John Newton, best known as the author of the hymn "Amazing Grace". The letters are written to Thomas Haweis, co-founder of the London Missionary Society and the editor of the 1799 account of the Duff voyage to Tahiti.After a difficult career as a young man at sea, Newton experienced a conversion in 1748, although for more than a decade he continued his association with slave-ships. It was not until 1764 that Thomas Haweis managed to get Newton the living for Olney in Buckinghamshire, the same year that this work was first published in England (An Authentic Narrative of some Remarkable and Interesting Particulars... Communicated in a series of letters, to the Reverend Mr. Haweis). This Swedish translation is based on a German-language edition of 1791. Becoming a prominent abolitionist, in 1788 Newton published Thoughts Upon the Slave Trade, a horrific account of the Middle Passage.The main text of this work is in the form of a series of "Brefwet" or letters, the first signed 12 January 1763, and the last 2 February 1763. Throughout, there are numerous quotations from the Bible, usually printed in bold, and references to the main locations associated with the slave trade, including notes on Sierra Leone, Antigua and the West Indies. Joints starting but firm, unnumbered final contents page torn with loss and with rather basic paper repair; a worn but not unattractive copy.

Three volumes. Octavo, contemporary full tree calf, gilt-decorated spines, red and black morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers. $2800.First edition of this seminal work on penal reform and legislation in general, in full contemporary tree calf gilt.The first of BenthamÂ’s works to be edited by Dumont, a Swiss writer he met and befriended in Paris; Dumont edited and translated many of BenthamÂ’s works and acted, in effect, as his literary agent. This book consists partly of material by Bentham himself, some of which was originally written in French, and partly a summary by Dumont of BenthamÂ’s ideas, including a Memoire in French of the Panopticon. It was this work that more than any other established BenthamÂ’s reputation and made his ideas famous on the Continent, in Latin America and in England. “The great object of Mr. BenthamÂ’s life was the improvement of legislation and jurisprudenceÂ… Mr. BenthamÂ’s principal work was first published in French in 1802Â… [According to a contemporary review:] ‘It embraces almost every thing that is important in the science of human nature, and not only touches upon all the higher questions of government and legislation, but includes most of the abstract principles of ethics and metaphysics, and professes to delineate those important rules by which the finest speculations of philosophy may be made to exert their influence on the actual condition of society…” (Allibone I, 167-168). With half titles in all volumes. Owner signatures, contemporary gift inscription to half title of Volume I.Text generally clean. Only minor rubbing to extremities of contemporary calf-gilt bindings. A very handsome copy of this quite scarce and important work.

Paris: Marguerite Chollet, [1802]. Quarto, modern half red morocco gilt. $3000.1802 edition of PronyÂ’s Rapport on the ‘MachineÂ’ of Marly—“considered a wonder of the world at the time”—constructed to pump water from the Seine to Versailles and inaugurated in 1684 with Louis XIV in attendance, a rare presentation copy inscribed in French on the title page, “Donné par lÂ’Auteur,” followed by the authorÂ’s initials, with three large engraved folding plates.“The ‘machineÂ’ of Marly was a civil engineering marvel located at the bottom of the hill of Louveciennes, on the banks of the Seine about 12 kms from Paris. Louis XIV had it constructed to pump water from the river to his chateaux of Versailles and Marly. The construction lasted 7 years and was inaugurated in the presence of the King in June 1684. It was considered a wonder of the world at the time, and may have been the largest system of integrated machinery ever assembled to that dateÂ… The original Louis XIV Machine included not just an enormous structure on the river itself, but sprawled 600 meters all the way up the hill, comprising pumping stations, holding tanks, reservoirs, pipes and an intricate system of mechanical linkages to power pumps on the hill from the waterwheels belowÂ… Pumping at full capacity, it could add over a million gallons in 24 hours to the Marly reservoirs. Nothing of the original Machine system has survived except for the Aqueduct” (Dunlop, Louis XIV and the Creation of Versailles). This work contains papers on the water-pump at Marly, which supplied water to the castle of Marly, as well as the fountains of Versailles. The various ‘machinesÂ’ discussed are those of Lagiasse, Campmas, Bralled and White. Preceded by the 1794 first edition. Text in French: containing hydromechanic calulations. With three engraved folding plates silked, at rear: containing diagrams of three of the machines at Marly. A fine copy.

        Musen-Almanach, für das Jahr 1802.

      in der Cotta'schen Buchhandlung, 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.

        Autograph Letter Signed, Paris, March 21, 1844, to Joseph-Louis -Elzéar Ortolan

      octavo, 1 ½ pages, neatly inscribed in ink, in fine, clean and legible condition. Joseph-Louis-Elzéar Ortolan (1802-1873) was appointed to the chair of comparative criminal law at the University of Paris in 1836.The letter discusses their mutual interest in penal reform - notably, the modifications just made by the Diet of Hungary and mentions the latest work by Carl Joseph Anton Mittermaier (1787-1867), Mitermaier was an advocate of reform in the German criminal procedure and in prison discipline, the work which de Tocqueville refers is Italienische Zustände (Heidelberg:1844), embodies the result of his observations during frequent visits to Italy. The Hungarian theme is of particular interest: some Hungarian travelers reached the United States at the same time as Alexis de Tocqueville ... Sándor Bölöni Farkas (1795-1842) published his Journey in North America (Útazas Észak Amerikában) in 1834, a year before de Tocqueville's Democracy in America appeared. The former work analyzed Jacksonian democracy in contrast to the oppressive regime of Prince Metternich. Coincidentally de Tocqueville and Bölöni Farkas met in Charlestown where the prison logbook preserves the memory of their respective visits on the same day in 1831. It will be remembered that de Tocqueville undertook his journey to America upon being granted a commission from the French government to study the penal system in the United States as a possible guide for French prison reform, along with his friend Gustave de Beaumont. Their jointly authored report, On the Penitentiary System in the United Sates and Its Application in France, appeared in 1833. American National Biography, vol. 21, pp., 715-717

This is one of the transitional works which lies squarely across style boundaries. Few of BeethovenÂ’s works flow as smoothly and easily as the quintetÂ’s first movement; its melodies move from cadence to cadence with a quality of repose that is delightful. The lyric, florid adagioÂ… is a charming inspiration worthy of comparison with the best works of Mozart. [In] the third and fourth movements we see the Beethoven of the future” (Scherman and Biancolli, 206-207). Kinsky-Halm, 70. Each part with faint owner inkstamp.

It is then very rare thus, and in a most desirable contemporary state, fresh, clean and crisp, unpressed and with the backs handsomely restored to style. ONE OF THE GREATEST WORKS IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN POLITICAL, LEGAL AND PHILOSOPHIC THOUGHT. AN ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT AND VERY EARLY PRINTING, ONLY THE SECOND, AND WITH ADDITIONS INCLUDING THE CONSTITUTION AND THE AMENDMENTS, AS WELL AS A SERIES OF ARTICLES BY HAMILITON WRITING UNDER THE PSEUDONYM "PACIFICUS". HERE PRESENTED WITH THE FOUNDING PAPERS OF OUR NATIONAL GOVERNMENT. "The Federalist is the most important work in political science that has ever been written, or is likely ever to be written in the United States. It is...the one product of the American mind that is rightly counted among the classics of political theory." The Federalist stands beside the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution itself among all the sacred writings of American political history. It has a quality of legitimacy, of authority, and authenticity that caused Thomas Jefferson to say of it, "appeal is habitually made by all, and rarely declined or denied by any" as to the "genuine meaning" of the Constitution. George Washington, writing to Alexander Hamilton in the summer of 1788, said: "When the transient circumstances and fugitive performances which attended this crisis shall have disappeared, that work will merit the notice of posterity, because in it are candidly and ably discussed the principles of freedom and the topics of government--which will be always interesting to mankind so long as they shall be connected in a civil society." "Its fame derives from the whole course of American history. It is a sign, as it were, of the prodigious success of the Constitution, which as it has endured and evolved over the generations, has called attention ever more insistently to the men who, having helped write it, first explained it. In bursts of brilliance it is not only an analysis and defense of our Constitution but an exposition of certain enduring truths that provide an understanding of both the dangers and the delights of free government. It mixes candor and hope, realism and idealism in a message to all friends of liberty. No happiness without liberty, no liberty without self-government..." (Rossiter 1961). One of the most important pieces of early American writing. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay originally published these articles to explain the principle of, and to argue the propriety of adopting, the recently devised Constitution. This edition was the last issued during Hamilton's lifetime, and the last with which any of the three authors had any involvement..
