        Methaphysische anfangsgründe der Jugendlehre

      F. Nicolovius, 1803. In 8° (mm 200x130); pagg. XII, 266, (2), X, 188. Mezza pelle con angoli coeva, titolo impresso a secco su tassello al dorso, scomparti, tagli rossi. Testo in carattere gotico. Seconda edizione migliorata. La "metafisica" è il tentativo di cogliere ciò che non si vede, il noumeno; una volta era la regina delle scienze, ai tempi di Kant diventa una scienza in crisi, campo di infiniti conflitti; gli illuministi ed empiristi la definivano inaffidabile, poiché non si basava su certezze come la matematica e la fisica. Kant elabora un nuovo criterio di verità, afferma che la verità è accompagnata dalla ragione e dall'esperimento, è unione di forma e contenuto, materiale raccolto da esperienze sensibili. Kant sostiene che sia l'esigenza dello spirito umano che si spinge a indagare oltre la conoscenza sensibile poichè tende all'infinito e alla perfezione. La metafisica sostiene il filosofo, è immanente alla ragione umana, costituisce una sua "disposizione naturale" anche chi la disprezza ricade inevitabilmente in essa. Bell'esemplare. Presenta tracce d'uso a spigoli e alla cuffia superiore.Warda 127

Hays received advice from Godwin on writing her novels, and she tended Wollstonecraft on her deathbed. In the present work Hays created a significant biographical dictionary of 294 impressive women through the ages.

        1749. Report From the Committee Appointed to Inquire into the State and Condition of the Countries Adjoining to Hudson's Bay, and of the Trade Carried On There

      House of Commons, London - c. 1803 reprint. Pages 217-286. Rebound in navy cloth spine and blue paper boards. Dampstained title page. Small hole in Appendix page. In March 1749 a British parliamentary committee was created to enquire into the state and condition of the land adjoining Hudson's Bay and the trade carried on there. One of the key witnesses was James Isham who arrived back from North America to give evidence. Isham, whose name appears frequently in this volume, felt settlement by the shores of Hudson's Bay was impossible since food crops could not be grown there, inland posts were needed even at uneconomic costs in transportation, and no practical northwest passage really existed. Much of the text consists of appendices, such as His Majesty's Royal Charter. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Memalik-i Osmaniyye'nin Aktâr-i Simaliyesi Haritasi.

      Üsküdar (Istanbul), Mühendishane Matbaasi, [ca 1803]. - Engraved map in ourline colour, 119 x 53.4 cm. Backed with cloth. One of the earliest monuments of Islamic cartography, of outstanding rarity: published at roughly the same time as the famous "Cedid Atlas", also by the Imperial Engineering School in Scutari (Istanbul), this large-scale engraved wall map shows the "Northern Territories of the Ottoman Empire". This hitherto practically unknown map is clearly to be viewed in connection with the atlas which has long been considered the first and most important achievement of modern Muslim cartography. Like the Cedid Atlas, this outstanding publishing venture was commissioned under the authority of Sultan Sultan Selim III. A pioneering attempt at mapping a substantial part of the far-flung Empire, the map reaches from southern Italy and the Balkans to the Caucasus and the Caspian Sea. The most detailed map of the Empire's Northern Territories available at the time and one of the first wall maps printed in Constantinople. - Occasional unobtrusive professional repairs, well preserved altogether.

These publications are important as records of Repton's work and views as a landscape gardener.

        Rules and orders of the public infirmary at Liverpool.

      Liverpool: printed by T. Billinge, Castle-Street. 1803. 8vo., 24pp., preserved in modern boards with title reproduced on upper cover. A very good copy. The Liverpool Infirmary was founded in 1743, took six years to build at a cost of £2,600. It was opened by the Earl of Derby on 25 March 1749 and stood on the site of the present day St. George's Hall. The infirmary was brought about due, in part, to the insanitary conditions of Liverpool at that time. The population, which had been only about 5,000 in 1700 had by 1749 quadrupled to 20,000. Many were housed in ill-drained streets, the unsanitary conditions leading to widespread illness. In 1823 a new hospital and lunatic asylum is built on Brownlow Street and renamed the Liverpool Royal Infirmary in 1851. The old infirmary was closed in 1826 and eventually demolished in 1842. The Rules and Orders> was a comprehensive handbook describing in more than 101 numbered paragraphs the rules of engagement, as it were, of the charity. The first 38 of these relate to the governance of the hospital, the duties of the General Board, financial arrangements and responsibilities, the role of trustees, arrangements for appointment of senior staff, the purchase of drugs, the preparing of annual reports, &c. &c. There follow detailed rules about admission and discharge of patients, the roles of physicians and surgeons, the house-apothecary and secretary, the matron, servants, patients, and house-visitors. Patients had to agree not to 'swear, curse, behave rudely, or indecently', and were forbidden from playing 'at cards, dice, or any other game', or smoking 'any where within doors, without leave of the apothecary'. Moreover, those patients who were able were required to 'assist in nursing the patients, washing and ironing the linenen [sic], cleaning the wards, and [to] be employed in any other service the matron shall require'. Rule 31 stated 'that all servants of the House be free from the burdon of children and the care of a family'. And Rule 40 reminds the reader that this was a charitable institution only for the poor: 'That no persons be admitted, whose circumstances enable them to pay for their care'.

        Yosan Hiroku [trans.: Secret Notes on the Cultivation of Silkworms]

      Many fine single & double-page illus. 30; 29; 28 folding leaves. Three vols. Large 8vo, orig. blue patterned wrappers, block-printed title labels on upper covers (the first one a little defective), new stitching. Kyoto, Edo, & Osaka: 1803. First edition of one of the most important Japanese works on sericulture and one of the first Japanese technological works to be translated into a European language. A copy of the present work had been smuggled by Siebold from Nagasaki to Holland where it was translated by Hoffmann (1805-78), a Dutch government language specialist who had a thorough knowledge of Japanese. The 1848 translation (Yo san fi rok. L'Art d'Élever les Vers à Soie au Japon) was edited by Matthieu Bonafou (1793-1852), a member of a leading silk manufacturing family in Lyons and Turin, and director of the botanical gardens of Turin. As a result of the silkworm plague which was then damaging the European silk industry, he was deeply involved in the improvement of the production of different varieties of both silkworms and mulberry trees. Bonafou was interested in Chinese and Japanese methods of sericulture which led him to engage in translating and editing a series of relevant classic Chinese and Japanese texts for comparative purposes. The present work was deeply influential in Japan as well. It summarized many of the most advanced techniques - both Chinese and Japanese - in use in various regions of the country. Kamigaki presented his information in a succinct and straightforward style with attractive illustrations which made it readily comprehensible to ordinary farmers. This book is very handsomely printed and illustrated. The woodcuts depict all the steps in sericulture: incubation and rearing of worms, cocoons, selection of eggs for reproduction, techniques of keeping rooms warm enough to enhance hatching, the mulberry tree and its cultivation, feeding the silkworms with mulberry leaves, tools, making the silk, manufacturing fabrics, looms, etc., etc. Kamigaki (1753-1808), was a sericulturist and researcher who travelled throughout Japan to study the subject. A nice set of this handsome work. Minor worming to the upper blank margins. &#10087; See Claudio Zanier's quite wonderful on-line article "Overcoming the Barrier of the Alps.

Bella copia con barbe stampata su carta pesante. Milano, li 31 Ottobre 1803 anno II, Il Governo proclama Legge della Repubblica il seguente decreto del Corpo Legislativo, ed ordina che sia munito del Sigillo dello Stato, stampato, pubblicato ed eseguito. MELZI Vice Presidente. Il Consigliere Segretario di Stato Luigi VACCARI. I membri della Commissione Pesi e Misure: Barnaba Oriani, Carlo Innocenzo Isimbardi, Paolo Brambilla. Il progetto di stabilire una unità naturale delle misure e dei pesi, che portò alla scelta del metro come unità fondamentale, era stato avviato dall'Académie des Sciences di Parigi negli anni 1784, 1789, e sostenuto dalla proposta presentata da Talleyrand alla Assemblea Nazionale francese nel 1790. Si trattava non solo di unificare le misure all'interno di uno stato, ma di determinare un misura lineare di base per tutte le altre: di superficie, capacità, peso, che fosse anche universale e riproducibile. Alla iniziale proposta di Condorcet di adottare come unità di misura la lunghezza del pendolo che batte il secondo alla latitudine di 45°, la Commissione per i pesi e misure, cui appartennero anche Lagrange, Lavoisier, Laplace e Monge, sostituì quella di una frazione del meridiano terrestre: la decimilionesima parte del quarto di meridiano (1791). Ulteriori semplificazioni e varianti nei nomi si trovano nella nuova legge sui pesi e le misure (n. 83) emanata durante la Repubblica Italiana (27 ottobre 1803), dopo il riassetto dei territori conquistati dalle armate napoleoniche: il braccio diventa metro, le cui dieci, cento, mille parti uguali sono ora rispettivamente: palmi, diti, atomi. Moltiplicando successivamente per cento si passa dal metro quadrato alla tavola e quindi alla tornatura; le analoghe misure di volume si ottengono aggiungendo il termine cubo alla corrispondente misura lineare; le medesime misure di capacità sono usate per i solidi e per i liquidi: la soma, decima parte del metro cubo, divisa successivamente in dieci mine, cento pinte, mille coppi; le unità di peso restano le libbre, suddivise successivamente in once, grossi, denari, grani, e i cui multipli di dieci diventano rubbi, centinaj. Di grande importanza era l'obbligo di insegnare nelle scuole elementari il calcolo decimale e il nuovo sistema. Il processo di adeguamento fu accompagnato dalla pubblicazione di appositi manuali e testi scolastici. Axs
