        Nouveaux Tableaux de famille ou, la Vie d'un pauvre ministre de village allemand, et de ses enfans. Traduit de l'allemand . par Isabelle de Montolieu.

      Geneva: Paschoud 1802 - 5 volume set, 6.75 inches tall. A fine binding of the period in quarter calf with gilt raised bands, gilt tooling to most panels and splendid blind tooling to the other. First edition in french of Lafontaine's popular novel Leben eines armen Landpredigers. This set is from the library, though without the bookplates, assembled at Voltaire's former home, the Chateau de Cirey ( Champagne) by Mme de Simiane ( 1761-1835 ), sometime lover of Lafayette and later, a correspondent of Fanny Burney. Diane-Adelaide de Simiane's early life was colourful and she came to Cirey in 1795 after a period of incarceration during the Terror. Previously she had been married to Charles-Francois de Simiane, who had served with Lafayette in America and who died in mysterious circumstances in 1787. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Paris, 23. IX. 186[?]. 1 S., 8°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Sainte-Claire Deville war Professor in Besancon und Paris und stellte 1854 erstmals technisch Aluminium her. Er erforschte die Platin-Metalle und entdeckte zusammen mit Friedrich Wöhler das kristallisierte Bor und Silicium. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Sainte-Claire Deville, Schrötter, Chemie, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        A general history of the Christian church, from the fall of the Western Empire to the present time ...

      Northumberland [PA]: Pr. for the author by Andrew Kennedy 8vo (21.6 cm, 8.5"). 4 vols. I: xxxvi, 475, [1 (blank)] pp. II: vii, [1], 539, [1 (blank)] pp. III: [6], 488 pp. IV: x, [3], xii–xiii, [1], 480 pp.. 1802–03 First edition. Priestley, a controversial theologian as well as a chemist who may be best remembered today for experiments with gasses that led to the discovery of oxygen, here continues his General History of the Christian Church to the Fall of the Western Empire (published in two volumes in 1790) up through 1802. (Although the present set, dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, stands alone, each book does close with an acknowledgment of its number in both series — i.e., "The end of Volume the third of the Second Part, or Volume the fifth of the whole Work".) Priestley's ecclesiastical history not only canvasses Catholicism and the other branches of Christianity, but considers Judaism and Islam (if the latter to a somewhat limited extent) as well. This work was printed in Northumberland, Pennsylvania, where Priestley settled in 1782, his liberal political opinions and defense of the French Revolution (in addition to his status as a nonconforming minister of questionable orthodoxy) having obliged him to emigrate from England to the United States. Provenance: Each title-page inscribed by N. Irwin. Recent quarter calf over marbled paper–covered sides,paper darkened at edges and/or turn-ins on some volumes, most notably vol. IV; spines with gilt-stamped leather title and volume labels. Title-pages with faint impression of a once-pencilled shelf number; a few page edges slightly ragged; some instances of small spots of foxing, mostly in margins, and varying degrees of offsetting.

        THE WOLF KING; OR LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD: AN OLD WOMAN'S TALE [IN] THE PORT FOLIO, VOL.II, NO.22 (JUNE 5TH, 1802)

      Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens, Philadelphia 1802 - Quarto (32cm); printed wrappers, disbound, but untrimmed; pp.[169]-176. Text is toned (though not brittle), mild wear to extremities, with scattered foxing; Very Good+. Important issue of this Federalist newspaper, published by Joseph Dennie and Philadelphia bookseller Asbury Dickens. Notable for the inclusion of 'The Wolf King; or Little Red Riding Hood,' a decidedly grotesque version of the traditional Little Red Riding Hood story told in 26 stanzas. First published in Terror Tales (London: W.Bulmer & Co., 1801) and once attributed to M.G. Lewis, the publication in The Port Folio marks its first appearance in the United States. In comparison to the Brothers Grimm version of 1812, this version lacks the redemptive appearance of the huntsman, and ends with Little Red Riding Hood meeting a gruesome end at the hands of the wolf. "His hungry teeth the wolf king gnash'd, His sparkling eyes with fury flash'd, He'd op'd his jaws all sprent with blood, And fell on small red riding hood. / He tore out bowels one and two, "Little maid, I will eat you!" But when he tore out three and four, The little maid she was no more!" Not the first appearance of Little Red Riding Hood in the United States (OCLC notes three pre-1802 American editions of the traditional version based on Perrault, along with two others), though certainly the first appearance of this particular iteration. Additionally, this issue contains obituaries for Martha Washington and Sarah Jay (wife of John Jay). Uncommon.

Swidnica 2012, No.XIX [EA 1800]). - Gemusterte Innendeckelbezüge. Gepunzter Goldschnitt. Besonders wegen des Einbandes bemerkenswertes Exemplar des bis ins 20.Jhrdrt in Schlesien weitverbreiteten „Gerhardschen Gesangbuchs“. Material und Gestaltung des Einbandes erinnern an den „Einband-Sonderstil“, der sich um 1800 von England aus verbreitete und schnell „zum Repertoire anspruchsvoller Buchbinder“ (Arnim, Europ. Einbandkunst 150) gehörte. Während diese aber im klassizistischen Stil gehalten sind, greift unser Buchbinder auf die Ornamentik des Rokoko zurück. Die Art der Gestaltung der Decken erinnert stark an die im späten 18.Jhrdrt in Dänemark verbreitete. Leider kann ich weder den Buchbinder noch den Erstbesitzer („C.E. II.“) namhaft machen.

        The friend of women: translated from the French of Bourdier De Villemert. By Alexander Morrice.

      London: printed by Knight and Compton, for the author. 1802. 8vo., (2) + v - vii + (1) + (5) - 164pp., original boards, a little soiled, neatly rebacked with printed spine label, entirely uncut. A good large copy. First edition of this translation. Boudier de Villemert's popular treatise on women, first published in French in Paris (1758), was reprinted many times and translated into English both as The Ladies Friend> and as The Friend of Women>. It seems to have been particularly popular in America with translations published in New Haven (1784 &c.), Philadelphia (1771 &c.), and Danbury (Conn.) (1794). A London printing appeared in 1766. The book itself, far from contributing to any concept of women's emancipation, painted a traditional portrait of the 18th century European woman, with sections on the 'studies suitable for women', on the 'occupations of women', pleasures, 'the luxury of women', 'dress of women', marriage, education of children, 'domestic government', and more. Alexander Morrice, the translator, dedicates the book to Her Royal Highness, Caroline, Princess of Wales. It was, he suggests, 'intended to raise the female sex to their entitled rank in society'.

A renowned mineralogist, "Werner is best known for his contribution to the founding of geology as a science" (DSB). The present work describes a theory of the origin of ore deposits. "Werner formulated basic questions about the origin and history of veins and their contents, established critera for determining the relative age of veins and vein materials, and presented a comparative study of the structure of veins and rock masses" (DSB). The translator and editor, Jean François d'Aubuisson, was a student of Werner's. The front wrapper nearly detached, but otherwise in very good condition and untrimmed.

Contemporary polished calf, spines with raised bands, gilt and lettered in gilt in compartments, marbled edges; re-hinged, joints skilfully restored. Fine copy of the first edition in English of "an extremely charming colour plate book [which] deserves a place in every colour plate book collection for its numerous attractive coloured vignettes, an unusual feature" (Tooley). Pallas' second and most picturesque travel, which lasted 6 years from 1768 to 1774, took his team (including the young artist Geissler, as well as Pallas' wife and daughter) in a scientific journey along the Volga to Astrakhan, the Caspian Sea, and then the Caucasus and 'Taurida', that is the Crimea, to which the entire second volume is dedicated. "These travels into the Crimea and to the Caucasus are less confined to scientific objects and therefore are more generally interesting than his former work" (Cox). A handsome production due mainly to the numerous attractive and charming hand-coloured illustrations which appear as vignettes in the text as well as additional plates. They depict the natives of the regions traversed, their costumes and occupations, the scenery and landscapes, showing for example fine views of Bakhchisaray, the Sebastopol and Balaklava bays. This example is especially attractive for its vivid colours and lovely contemporary binding. Abbey Travel 222; Cox I, 199; Hiler 683; Tooley 357. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Musen-Almanach, für das Jahr 1802.

      Tübingen: in der Cotta'schen Buchhandlung 12mo (16cm; 6.25"). vi, 293, [1] pp.. 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. 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.

        The Divina Commedia of Dante Alighieri, Consisting of the Inferno - Purgatorio - and Paradiso

      London: A. Strahan for T. Cadell, 1802. First English language edition. A lovely set of the first complete translation into English of Dante's "Divine Comedy." Full contemporary tree calf, spines expertly rebacked to style, morocco spine lables, gilt borders and spine panels. Three 8vo volumes (pages 216 x 132 mm), collating: vi, [2], 408; [iv], 56, [ii (divisional title)], 57-62, 65-384 (complete); [iv], 420pp., engraved frontispiece portrait plate of Dante by Thomas Stothard in vol.1, half-titles in volumes 2 and 3, complete (despite the funny numbering sequence in volume 2). A few pages lightly foxed (heaviest on the first title page), but on the whole an excellent set. One of the world's great masterpieces and a foundational text of Italian literature. The Comedy took over a decade for Dante to write, he worked on it in exile, having been sent out of his native Florence in 1302, when his political faction fell out of favor. The work's genius was quickly recognized -- Boccaccio himself was so obsessed with it that he was responsible for adding the prefix "Divine." Over the years, it has influenced countless writers, among them Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, and James Joyce. Borges claimed it was "the best book literature has achieved." Boyd (1748/49 - 1832), a member of the Irish clergy, was responsible for the first English translation of the Inferno in 1785 as well as the complete work in this 1802 edition. His translation would help bring Dante back into literary circles aften he had fallen by the critical wayside in the aftermath of the Renaissance and Enlightenment. The "Divine Comedy" soon regained its popularity; before the 19th century was up Longfellow would also try his hand at a translation and William Blake would make drawings of some of its more famous passages.

      London: Pub. for John Reeves (pr. by W. Bulmer) 8vo (24 cm, 9.5"). vi, [694] pp.. 1802 There were minor differences between the Prayer Books of the Church of England and the Church of Ireland up until 1801, the year that the churches merged; the various 1801 BCPs were the first to use the "United Church" designation. John Reeves had been appointed king's printer in 1800, and edited his own version of the BCP, of which this is the second edition; the separate title-page following the preliminary matter is dated 1801. (That preliminary matter, offering historical and liturgical commentary, is extensive and interesting.) Fore-edge: This beautiful example bears a subtly shaded => fore-edge painting showing Westminster Abbey in the background behind a waterfront view with sailboats. Binding: Full straight-grain dark olive green morocco, covers framed in elegant feather and pearl twist gilt roll, turn-ins with floral gilt roll. Stone-pattern marbled endpapers. All edges gilt.

        Infidel Father, The

      London: Printed by A. Strahan, 1802. - Jane West's Attack on Atheism"An Overcharged Picture of the Vanity, Extravagance, and Self-Importance"[WEST, Mrs. Jane]. The Infidel Father; By the author of "A Tale of the Times," "A Gossip's Story," &c. In three volumes. London: Printed by A. Strahan, 1802. First edition. Three small octavo volumes (6 1/4 x 4 inches; 159 x 101 mm.). iv, 306 pp; [ii, blank], iii-viii, 345, [1, advertisements] pp; iv, 346 pp. Bound ca. 1802 by Jacques of Chichester (with his binders ticket on the front paste-down of volume one) in quarter brown calf over marbled boards with vellum tips. Smooth spines decoratively tooled in gilt with a 'feather' design, red morocco labels lettered in gilt (label on volume two replaced). Light wear to joints and spine extremities, still an excellent and untouched (apart from one spine label) set in its original 'provincial' binding."The particular design of the present work is, to shew [sic] the superiority which religious principle possesses, when compared with a sense of honour, moral fitness, or a love of general applause. The story is confessedly subordinate to this aim; and those who dislike it will observe, that the argumentative part is not affected by the faults of the narrative. The episodal characters have a use besides relieving the sombrous hue of the principal personages. I wish they may be considered as an overcharged picture of the vanity, extravagance, and self-importance, that for some years infected the middle class of society, threatening destruction to the sound sense, decent propriety, and manly virtues of this most important portion of the community." (Introduction).Jane West (1758–1852), who published as Prudentia Homespun and Mrs. West, was an English novelist, poet, playwright, and writer of conduct literature and educational tracts.In 1800 she wrote to the man of letters Thomas Percy, bishop of Dromore, seeking his patronage and describing herself as self-instructed and interested in poetry from an early age. By 1783 she was married to Thomas West (d. 1823), a yeoman farmer of Little Bowden, Leicestershire. Jane West benefited from the acquaintance with Bishop Percy, whom she visited in 1810, although her literary connections were never extensive. She corresponded with Sarah Trimmer and wrote a series of poems in praise of women writers: Trimmer, Elizabeth Carter, Charlotte Turner Smith, whom she visited in Ireland and Anna Seward.West's writing is consistently conservative and didactic, but she did advocate expanding the education for women. Her works serve as a counterpoint to the revolutionary politics of the day: A Tale of the Times (1799) is anti-Jacobin; The Infidel Father (1802) attacks atheism; and one of her conduct texts, Letters to a Young Lady, "forms an ideological counterpart to Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792). Though she was called "strident," her writing was popular in its day for its "improving" qualities. Letters to a Young Man (1801), for example, went through six editions by 1818. Her poems appeared in journals and anthologies and she was a long standing contributor to the Gentleman's Magazine. Today she is best known as the author of a novel that served as a source text for Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility (1811). West's A Gossip’s Story (1796), like Austen’s novel, features two sisters, one full of rational sense and the other of romantic, emotive sensibility. West’s romantic sister shares the same name as Austen’s: Marianne. There are further textual similarities, described in Looser et al. ed's Valancourt Classics edition of the novel (2015). Austen, like Shakespeare before her, significantly reworked West’s plot and characters to suit her own vision.NCBEL III, 772. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Iris Pseudacorus / Iris faux-acore

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Very good condition, with the exception of being trimmed at the top edge into image. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's "functional" understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Liliacées from which this work comes. Les Liliacées is one of two Redouté masterworks, the other being Les Roses. These works demonstrate the appropriateness of the accolade "Raphael of Flowers", for one is constantly impressed by the exquisite compositional sense and clarity of vision. More than with any other painter, one sees in Redouté's flowers living, breathing beings at their most beautiful moment. Cf. Nissen BBI 1597; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Dunthorne p 231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747; cf. MacPhaeil, Redouteana , 10.

        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: Printed by T. Bensley...for J. White, 1802. Quarto. Modern three-quarter red morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Very slight shelf wear. Quite clean, fresh, and unblemished internally. A handsome, near fine copy. A fully colored copy of the quarto edition of this important account of Nelson's victory at the Battle of the Nile, and of his subsequent tour of the Mediterranean. Quarto copies were offered colored and uncolored; the majority were issued as uncolored aquatints. Willyams served as chaplain of the Swiftsure, a ship in Nelson's squadron, and he was present at the Battle of the Nile. The DNB calls this book "the first, the most particular, and the most authentic account of the battle." Willyams was a talented topographer and artist, and this is a handsomely produced book, showing the skill of the printer, Bensley. The plates are after drawings done by Willyams and include a plan of the battle, as well as views in Sicily, Syracuse, Egypt, Alexandria, Syria, Venice, Gibraltar, and other locations around the Mediterranean. The text includes well-written descriptions of all these places and more. ABBEY 196. BLACKMER 1813. HILMY II:335. PRIDEAUX, pp.223, 357. COX II:448. JCB MARITIME HAND-LIST 1235. NMM 5:1657.
