"Über Straßburg kam er dann nach Paris und sandte von hier Berichte an deutsche Blätter. Die häßliche Wirklichkeit kühlte die Begeisterung des Idealisten rasch ab. (..) Er begründete 1802 in Hamburg eine Zeitschrift "Der Nordstern", die wegen ihrer feindlichen Haltung gegen Napoleon bald unterdrückt wurde." Das vorliegende Buch ist ein Bericht über einen Aufenthalt in Kopenhagen und Schweden. Kerner ließ sich danach als Arzt in Hamburg nieder.

Engraved hand-coloured folding map, 11 engraved plates depicting distillery apparatus, tables throughout. First collected edition of these fifteen parliamentary reports, including Sylvester Douglas's indispensable two-part survey of the Scottish whisky industry, and three further reports, together illustrating the culmination of parliament's continued attempts to regulate the Scottish distilleries over the course of the eighteenth century following the Act of the Union in 1707. First is a series of three reports submitted by William Eden between 24 December 1783 and 23 March 1784 and discussing the smuggling of various commodities, including whisky. The first of these three also touches on "frauds in the internal duties on brewery, distillery, malt"; the second focuses on Scotland, demonstrating "both the forcible and piratical practices, as also the inland smuggling of foreign goods", and outlines details regarding exemption from and evasion of distillery duties; the third proposes methods of preventing the smuggling trade, and gives a list of bounties, premiums and allowances. The year, 1784, saw the introduction of the Wash Act, one of the formative moments in the history of the distilleries.

Large 4to (12.75 x x 16.75 inches), [7] ff., + engraved title page, frontispiece, 2 portraits and 97 plates illustrating the most-famous scenes from Shakespeare. In the de luxe binding of publisher's straight-grain red morocco gilt, gilt-extra backstrip, gilt design on both covers. Hinges repaired, rubbing at extremities. Some foxing almost exclusively confined to the margins, a bit heavier at front and rear of volume. The very rare duplicate plate by Blake for Romeo and Juliet is present and exceptionally clean. Bookplate of E.H. R. Noble of South Shields at the front. § First edition, large-paper copy. As the preeminent printmaker of his time, John Boydell's publishing house employed many of the best engravers of their generation including Bartolozzi, Stothard, Schiavonetti and Blake. Although Boydell ran this large-scale printmaking and publishing house for nearly 80 years, "his most significant contribution to British art can be considered the patriotic Shakespeare Gallery project conceived in 1786. Boydell employed more than forty different engravers for the large-format and quarto versions of the gallery's prints. A number of high-profile engravers... were employed on a handful of the plates, being paid exceptionally high rates" (DNB).

London: J. Johnson, 1803. Second edition, expanded to four times the length of the 1798 edition. This is the first edition to have Malthus s name on the title and the first to present data supporting his argument that population increases geometrically while food increases only arithmetically. In 1803 Malthus published under his own name the stout quarto that embodies his mature views of his subject. The author confesses in his preface that he had taken too gloomy a view of human nature in his first essay The achievement of Malthus was the exposition of the theory of population; and his name has been associated so closely with this theory that, like Darwin s, it has added a new adjective to the language of civilized peoples (Palgrave). Malthus was one of the founders of modern economics. His Essay was originally the product of a discussion on the perfectibility of society with his father, [who] urged him to publish. Thus the first edition (published anonymously) was essentially a fighting tract, but later editions were considerably altered and grew bulkier as Malthus defended his views against a host of critics (PMM). Whereas in the first edition he had said that all the checks to population would involve either misery or vice, in the second edition he attempted to lighten this melancholy hue and to soften some of the harshest conclusions of the first essay by arguing that moral restraint, if supported by an education emphasizing the immorality of bringing children into the world without the means of supporting them, would tend to increase rather than diminish individual ha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coxe verified the majority of these accounts with Gerhard Friedrich Müller and Peter Simon Pallas, as well as other eminent Russian experts on the subject whilst there when accompanying the future 11th Earl of Pembroke on a European tour from 1775 to 1779. He "also succeeded in securing additional material (for instance the narrative and maps of Krenitzin and Levashev's 'secret' expedition, the first official Russian government expedition since Bering's second expedition of 1741.

Questa rarissima carta appartiene ad progetto di atlante, mai portato a compimento, della così denominata Società Calcografia, una semplice operazione commerciale tra i due editori leader del mercato veneto del XVIII secolo, Antonio Zatta e Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. Il termine Società Calcografica viene da noi dedotto dalla carta del mondo presente in questa raccolta, che nel cartiglio in basso reca l'iscrizione in lingua francese "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799". Come detto il progetto non venne mai portato a compimento; nessun atlante contenente queste mappe, con indice e frontespizio, è infatti noto alle bibliografie. E' probabile pertanto che le carte venissero vendute singolarmente o in piccole raccolte personalizzate. Le mappe inserite nella raccolta derivano in parte da lastre di Paolo e Francesco Santini, usate da Remondini nel "Atlas Universelle" del 1782/4 ed in parte da lastre edite da Antonio Zatta per il "Nuovo Atlante" pubblicato nel 1796. Le mappe del Santini sono abilmente arricchite, tramite un sistema di piccole lastre mascherate che sono chiaramente visibili sulle mappe per il segno calcografico, da grandi cartigli nel classico stile dello Zatta, incisi dai suoi stretti collaboratori Pasquali, Zuliani e Pitteri. I cartigli spesso contengono le descrizioni storiche, e le mappe furono probabilmente realizzate per illustrare i notevoli cambiamenti geografici che subì la penisola durante il periodo napoleonico. Datate tra il 1795 ed il 1805 sono principalmente dedicate ad illustrare la penisola, sebbene esistano carte di molte regioni e … [Click Below for Full Description]

NEWTON, Isaac.
London: for H. D. Symonds, 1803. 3 volumes, octavo (214 x 132 mm). Late 19th-century half calf, twin morocco labels to spines, marbled sides, endpapers and edges. Old bookseller's catalogue description of the first edition of the Principia tipped-in at front of vol. I. Very minor rubbing at extremities, sporadic faint foxing but generally clean internally. An excellent copy. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 54 folding engraved plates, 2 folding letterpress tables, diagrams and letterpress tables in the text. First complete edition in English of the Principia, the second overall. Motte's English translation, published in 1729, was the first, and for nearly three centuries, the only English translation. This second edition was revised and completed by the London mathematician and publisher William Davis (1771/2-1807). Motte's edition only covers the first two-thirds of Newton's text; this is the first translation of the entire text into English. Apart from the reissue of this edition in 1819, no further edition was published until the "modernized" version by the University of California Press in 1934. No entirely new translation was made until 1999. Gray 24; Wallis 24; Babson 21. [Attributes: First Edition]

STERNE (Laurent).
Paris J.F.Bastien An XI (1803) 6 tomes en 3 volumes in-8, veau raciné de l'époque, dos lisses ornés. Nouvelle édition Illustrée d'un portrait par Misbach et de 15 gravures hors texte par Misbach et Chasselat, gravées par Saint-Aubin. Cette édition contient : Les mémoires, Tristam Shandy, le voyage sentimental, les lettres et les sermons. La traduction est due à MM. De Frenais, de Bonnai et de Sallaville. C'est à 46 ans que Laurence Sterne (1713-1768) fit paraitre son premier roman : « Vie et opinions de Tristam Shandy » qui obtint un succès immédiat au point que le «schandéisme » devint synonyme de réflexion sur la solitude, sur l'impossibilité des relations humaines, sur la hantise physique des corps. Le roman en effet n'est pas construit sur une intrigue mais sur le caractère des personnages. Son œuvre le « Voyage sentimental », où il répandit en France le mot « sentimental » illustre cette formule. Il indique aussi un témoignage précieux sur les mœurs en France, avant la Révolution. Par ce souci de l'introspection, ces mouvements du cœur, il préfigure certains auteurs du XIXe, tels que Balzac ou Flaubert...

[Various places, including Bedford, Pa.; Philadelphia; Geneva, N.Y., 1803. [40] leaves, each approximately 12 1/4 x 7 3/4 inches, written in ink and pencil, plus three watercolor sketches. Oblong quarto. Contemporary reverse sheep, expertly rebacked. Very good. In a blue half morocco box. An outstanding journal kept across a decade spanning the end of the 18th century by Edward Cutbush, the first United States Naval Surgeon, and the pioneer of American naval medicine. Beginning in 1790, Cutbush was the resident physician of the Pennsylvania Hospital and the diary commences with a series of retained letters, with a number of his signatures, from his appointment as Surgeon General of the Pennsylvania Militia during the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion, and provides instructions for the operating of field hospitals and the proper form of a hospital register. Cutbush's entry of May 28, 1799 announces that he has been, "Appointed Surgeon in the Navy of the United States, and rec'd orders to join the Frigate United States. 50 Guns. Commodore John Barry. James Barron Capt. Now, commences a new scene of life." The U.S.S. United States, one of the six original frigates ordered by the Naval Act of 1794, is considered the first ship of the U.S. Navy. The principal voyage recorded here set out in November 1799, when the United States left Newport with the Envoy Extraordinary to the Republic of France, a group of diplomats that included Elbridge Gerry and Oliver Ellsworth, Chief Justice of the United States.

Weimar, Verlag des Industrie-Comptoirs, 1803. Condition: Gut.

With 58 (54 white-on-black) engraved star maps.Rare second edition. Christian Friedrich Goldbach (1763-1811) was a German astronomer and geographer. He was born in Taucha / Saxony. The present celestial atlas was his magnus opus. Murawieff, Curator of the University of Moscow, was so impressed by the atlas, among other things, that he appointed Goldbach as Professor of Astronomy in Moscow.27 of the maps are centered on the major constellations, each faced by a map of the same area, having the constellations outlined. These copper-plates are printed in relief, with the result being that the stars appear white against a black background. The atlas contains 10570 stars and, thus, 7651 more than the atlas of Flam.
