        Arabic title:] Kitab al-Filahah. Libro de Agricultura. Traducido al castellano y anotado por Don Josef Antonio Banqueri.

      Madrid: en la imprenta real, 1802 - 2 volumes, folio (307 × 200 mm) gathered and signed in fours. Contemporary tree sheep, spines gilt in compartments, red morocco labels (slightly amended with small onlays to read "Agricultura del moro"), marbled endpapers, red edges. Half-title to vol. II only, lacking in vol. I, text printed in two columns, in Spanish and Arabic. Joints rubbed, occasional spotting or light foxing, a few small stains, but generally crisp, a very good copy. First edition. Ibn al-'Awwam (in full, Abu Zakariya Yahya ibn Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn 'Al-Awwam Al-Ishbili) was an Arab agriculturist who flourished at Seville in southern Spain in the later 12th century. His lengthy handbook entitled in Arabic Kitab al-Filahah (Book on Agriculture) is the most comprehensive treatment of the subject in medieval Arabic, and one of the most important medieval works on the subject in any language. He is the most renowned of all the Andalusi agronomists because his book was the first to be published and translated into a modern language in this edition, then into French by Clément-Mullet in 1864–67, and subsequently into Urdu in 1927. It was thus for a long time the only source of reference on medieval Andalusi agronomy. Moreover it is one of the few works of this genre that has come down to us more or less complete. Ibn al-'Awwam appears to have been an aristocratic landowner, with personal practical experience of cultivation and land management. He was well-read in the agricultural writings of his predecessors and cites information from as many as 112 authors, especially the Geoponica of Cassianus Bassus, the Book of Nabataean Agriculture attributed to Ibn Wahshiyya, and many Andalusian Arabic authors (the great majority to Ibn Bassal, Abu al-Khayr al-Ishbili or Ibn Hajjaj, all three of whom wrote books about agriculture in the later 11th century in southern Spain, copies of which have survived only partly and incompletely). The work is divided into 34 chapters, the first 30 dealing with crops and the remaining 4 with livestock. A 35th chapter, on dogs, was apparently planned but no trace of it survives. The book describes the cultivation of 585 different plants, and gives cures for diseases of trees and vines, as well as diseases and injuries to horses and cattle. The translator worked at the Royal Library in Madrid. In 1781 he sent a letter to his patron discussing this work, in which he stresses the importance of Ibn al-'Awwam as a source for learning about agricultural methods which could be applied in Spain. The introduction of Islamic methods of agriculture had a profound influence on Spanish cuisine. One of the first innovations achieved by the Moors was the installation of irrigation systems which allowed the harvesting of arid areas, thereby expanding and improving vegetable plantations. The Arab agronomists also introduced natural produce from Asia previously unknown to the Spanish. Many of these continue to be basic ingredients in today's Spanish cuisine and include most spices, as well as produce such as saffron, apricots, artichokes, carob, sugar, aubergines, grapefruits, carrots, coriander and rice. These ingredients remain a firm point of reference for Spanish and Andalusian recipes, featuring in for example pinchito moruno andaluz, a dish normally made with chicken, saffron, cumin and coriander. Another notable example is what is widely regarded as the Spanish national dish, paella, whose main ingredients are rice and saffron. Thanks to the success of such crops, Spain today is one of the main producers of saffron. In fact, along with Iran, Spain produces 80 per cent of the crop worldwide. provenance: Sir John Sinclair (1754–1835), Scottish politician and writer on agriculture (Statistical Account of Scotland) and finance (vol. 1 with his initialled note concerning the present work to front free endpaper and a note presenting the volume to him in Cadiz to verso of title).

        DESCRIPTION DE L'EGYPTE. Zoologie. Oiseaux. (Histoire Naturelle, planche 6)

      Executed between 1802 and 1830, the plate was printed in 1,000 copies, sent to institutions. Vergé paper with 'Egypte ancienne et moderne' watermark visible when held to the light.A plate from the Oiseaux [Birds] series, the study for which was written by Jules-César Savigny (1777-1851), a zoologist who took part in the Egyptian campaign as a specialist on invertebrates. Heightened in colors by a contemporary hand. Only a few rare examples of the plates of birds were thus colored at the time, most remaining black and white.Three miniscule wormholes to margin not affecting engraving, a very small repaired tear at the level of the lower pressure mark (10 cm), otherwise in an excellent state of preservation.The monumental first edition of the Description de l'Egypte in 13 volumes had 892 plates, of which 72 were colored; 9 volumes were devoted to Antiquities. The other volumes were on Natural History and Modern Egypt; Napoleon Bonaparte had taken with him a scientific council from all the various disciplines so good that the description they produced was sold as "the richest museum in the universe." The work was written in part by Baron Dominique Vivant-Denon, before his appointment as the Director General of the Musée Napoléon in the Louvre. More than 80 artists and 400 engravers were engaged for this colossal project.The exceptionally large size of the plates meant that a special press had to be made for them, as well as a special furniture in which to keep them!  Imprimerie Impériale Paris 1802-1830 53,5 x 70 cm (42 x 58 cm hors marges) une feuille gouachée à la main à l'époque

        Fine Document Signed by the Secretary, James Hope,

      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 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.

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]
