"Chladni (1756-1827), professor of physics in Breslau, was the first to reduce the general association between vibration and pitch to a tabular basis, and thus to lay the foundation of the modern science of acoustics. His first results were first reported in New Discoveries in the Theory of Sound, 1787, and were greatly enlarged upon in Acoustics, 1802. He spread sand on plates made of metal and glass, which were fixed in clamps. He then applied a violin bow to the edge of each plate and recorded the patterns produced thereby in the sand. These figures are still known by Chladni's name" (Printing and the Mind of Man 288b). Chladni was from an early age interested in music, and was himself an amateur musician "who designed and constructed two keyboard instruments, the euphonium and the clavicylinder, both being variations of the glass harmonica" (see DSB for a detailed account of his life and experiements).

(8), CLXI, (12), 660, (4) pp. (4), 822, (2) pp. (2),1086 (but: 1084, pp. 693f. numbered twice), (2) pp. (2), 1207, (2) pp. Title printed in red and black. With engraved and woodcut head- and tailpieces; 3 engraved and folded plates. Allegorical engraved title vignette (a putto surrounded by books). A uniformly bound set in contemporary marbled boards with gilt label to flat green spine. All edges untrimmed. Second edition, produced in a total press run of 502 copies, of which only two were printed on large paper (cf. Graesse, Ebert and Wurzbach). The normal-paper copies measure a mere 36 cm, compared to the present copy, which stands 45 centimetres tall. - As the first edition, published in 1680, had been rare from the start, most copies having perished in the Siege of Vienna, and plans for a new London edition had fallen through, a second edition was becoming increasingly desirable. With the financial support of Empress Maria Theresa, who granted an advance of 8000 fl., the monumental work was edited by the Austrian orientalist Bernhard Freiherr von Jenisch (1734-1807), who enlisted the aid of Franz von Klezl for the final three volumes; the printer Kurzböck had many of the types specially recast. "[Jenischs] wissenschaftliches Hauptverdienst [...] besteht in der Ausführung der zweiten Auflage des arabisch-persisch-türkischen Wörterbuches von Meninski, welche er [...] 1780-1802 in 4 Foliobänden in Wien besorgte.

DONOVAN, E.
London, printed for the author and for F. and C. Rivington, 1802-1808. 5 volumes. 8vo (235 x 142mm). With 120 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates and explanatory text. Contemporary green half morocco, richly gilt decorated spines with gilt lettering. First edition of one of the finest works on fishes. " . the paint is laid on so thickly that it is frequently impossible to see the engraved lines underneath. The already rich colouring is heightened by the addition of burnished highlights, albumen overglazes and metallic paints to give an overall effect reminiscent of the work of a miniaturist. Surprisingly, these techniques were often combined to produce a very pleasing and delicate effect: the multiple ruses of the colourist triumph over the draughtsman's numerous failures. Donovan overreached himself and died penniless ." (Dance, Art of natural History p. 87).Edward Donovan (1768-1837) was a Anglo-Irish naturalist and the author of a number of important natural history works which stand out for their perfection of execution. Best known are probably his publications of the insects of China and India. He was a Fellow of the Linnaean Society and the Wernerian Natural History Society.

Walter Scott
Kelso: One of the eight-hundred copies originally published in 1802, which sold out within it's first six months of publication. Consisting of historical and romantic ballads collected in the southern counties of Scotland, founded upon local tradition. Featuring the original engraved frontispiece to volume one. Collated complete. Scott's interest in the folk traditions of the Border region stemmed from early childhood stays at Sandyknowe, when he heard ballads from the lips of his grandmother Barbara Scott and his favourite Aunt Jenny. As an older boy, he thrilled to the medieval ballads collected in Bishop Thomas Percy's Reliques of Ancient English Poetry. Scott began collecting ballads himself in yearly trips to the Borders from 1792 onwards. He first had the idea of publishing a collection in 1796, but it was not until he renewed contact with his old schoolfriend, the printer James Ballantyne, that the idea bore fruit. In 1799 Ballantyne had published An Apology for Tales of Terror which contained ballads by Robert Southey, Matthew 'Monk' Lewis, John Aikin, and Scott himself. He now welcomed the idea of publishing a volume devoted entirely to ballads, a genre rendered newly fashionable by Wordsworth's and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads. The volume's success laid the foundations of James Ballantyne's career as a printer. 'I shall ever think', he wrote, 'the printing the Scottish Minstrelsy one of the most fortunate circumstances of my life'.

He now welcomed the idea of publishing a volume devoted entirely to ballads, a genre rendered newly fashionable by Wordsworth's and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads. The volume's success laid the foundations of James Ballantyne's career as a printer. 'I shall ever think', he wrote, 'the printing the Scottish Minstrelsy one of the most fortunate circumstances of my life'. Complete with the original two volumes, although without the later published third volume, which was published a year later. CONDITION … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Joseph Billings, an Englishman, received an appointment from the Empress of Russia in 1785 to command an expedition to the northwest coast which was ostensibly, at least, a scientific expedition, but in all probability was intended to keep track of the movements of La Perouse" - Wagner. Sauer's account provides a detailed description of the voyage, natives encountered and their customs, habitations, and the like. The second volume contains vocabularies of the languages of Kamchatka, the Aleutian Islands and Kodiak. The large folding map shows the Bering Strait and the land masses on both sides.

JENNER, Edward (1749-1823)
Springfield, Massachusetts: Reprinted for Dr. Samuel Cooley by Ashley & Brewer, 1802. 8vo. iv, 115pp. 4 engraved plates, printed in red and with hand-coloured highlights. Contemporary tree sheep, rebacked to style Rare first American edition of Jenner's work: "the basis of the modern science of immunology" (PMM) and "one of the great triumphs in the history of medicine" (Garrison-Morton). Jenner, a country practitioner in Berkeley, Gloucestershire, became curious about the country wisdom that milkmaids who contracted cowpox, a common and non-fatal infection transferred from cattle, were safe from smallpox. In May 1796 Jenner found a young dairymaid, Sarah Nelmes, who had fresh cowpox lesions on her finger. Using matter from Sarah's lesions, he inoculated an eight-year-old boy, James Phipps, who then developed a slight fever and a low-grade lesion. On July 1 Jenner inoculated the boy again, this time with smallpox matter. No disease developed. In 1798 he first published his account of successful vaccinations; the present first American edition is after the second London printing. As the imprint suggests, Jenner's work was evidently brought to press in the United States by Dr. Samuel Cooley (1755-1814), a noted physician of Bolton, Connecticut. Jenner had widely distributed his vaccine in England. After introducing cowpox inoculation in their own districts, many recipients passed the vaccine on to others. Dr. John Haygarth (of Bath, Somerset) received the vaccine from Edward Jenner in 1800 and sent some of the material to Benjamin Waterhouse, professor of phys … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed and sold by George F. Hopkins, New York, 1802.

Hinges of second volume repaired, boards quite rubbed and edgeworn. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage of both volumes. Moderate tanning and staining. Good. In cloth chemises and half morocco and cloth slipcases, spines gilt. Styled the "revised and corrected" edition on the titlepage, with additions to the first edition of 1788. "Most famous and influential American political work. Written in collaboration with Jay and Madison" - Howes. Ford attributes editorship of this edition to John Wells, though Sabin attributes it to William Coleman, noting it as "the last issued during Hamilton's life." This edition is expanded by the addition of the federal constitution and the first eleven amendments, and a series of articles written by Hamilton under the pseudonym "Pacificus," defending Washington's "Neutrality Proclamation" of 1793 regarding the Anglo-French war. Arguably the most complete edition, and the only other English language edition issued in Hamilton's lifetime, in the preface it identifies Hamilton, Jay, and Madison as the authors but does not specify who wrote which essays; "it was at first intended to mark the numbers distinctly which were written by each; but considerations have since occurred which would perhaps render this measure improper."

REDOUTÉ, Pierre-Joseph (1759-1840)
Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. 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 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 inLes Liliacéesfrom which this work comes.Les Liliacéesis 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 being … [Click Below for Full Description]

United States Congress
E. Bronson, printed by Thos. Smith, Philadelphia, 1802. [2],324pp. Half title. Bound in original period leather with gilt spine label. Some scattered foxing, lightly toned. Some worm spots, though it does not appear to affect any text. Interesting provenance, as it was part of the Georgetown (South Carolina) Library Society collection, with their 1803 dated bookplate on the front pastedown. An important record of the evolution of American law and the development of judicial independence in the early republic. This is one of two printings of the debates over the repeal of the Judiciary Act of 1801. This version is edited from a Federalist perspective, with critical comments on the debates as recorded in the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, an organ of the Jeffersonian Republicans. The debate over the repeal of the Judiciary Act of 1801 addressed issues of judicial review and the role, size, and authority of the judiciary branch, issues which led ultimately to the landmark case of Marbury v. Madison. The 1801 act, passed by a Federalist Congress, reduced the number of Supreme Court justices from six to five, created new circuits, and allowed outgoing President John Adams to appoint several new federal judges, the so-called "midnight judges." Jefferson opposed the 1801 act, and though it was overturned by the Judiciary Act of 1802, the federal judiciary remained fundamentally unaltered. The Marbury v. Madison decision of 1803 solidified the notion of judicial review of legislation and elevated the Supreme Court to a level of equality with the executive and legislative branches.

Jacob CATS (1741-1799), draft; Christiaan JOSI (1768-1828), engraver and publisher.
Amsterdam: Christiaan Josi, 1802. Etching and colour aquatint (Very Good, slightly age-toned and stained in white margins) 48,5 x 58,5 cm (19 x 23 inches). A rare large view, made in the technique of colour aquatint and etching - one of the most demanding printing techniques in the history, showcases a flood in Bemmel, in the Netherlands, in 1799. - A beautiful large view showcases the breaking of the damp and flood in the town of Bemmel in the Netherlands. The print was made in an elaborate combination of etching and colour aquatint by an Amsterdam based artist, publisher and collector Christian Josi and was based on a draft by Jacob Cats. The view shows the flood, which happened in 1799 in the town Bemmel in the south east part of the Netherlands, close to the German border. The dramatic view with cliffs, icebergs, storm and drowning people was more likely based on an imaginary composition than on a realistic presentation of a flood of a flat Dutch countryside. The etching is based on a draft by landscape painter Jacob Cats (1741-1799), a German born artist, active in Amsterdam. The elaborate etching in colours was made by Christiaan Josi (1768-1828), a Dutch painter, engraver, publisher, art dealer and art-historian. The technique of etching, combined with colour aquatint is considered to be one of the most demanding printing techniques up to this date. We could only find one other copy of this print in colour in public institutions (Atlas van Stolk, Rotterdam. Inv. No. 5432 - 3 (prent/tekening, diepdruk, kleur), Selectie Atlas Van Stolk - 18e eeuw, Atlas Van Stolk) and … [Click Below for Full Description]
