DURANDI Iacopo
nella Stamperia di Saverio Fontana nel palazzo della Mairie, 1803. in 4°, pp. 160, legatura ottocentesca con dorso rifatto in tela ecrù, tit. su tass. al ds. Il Durandi praticò con eccellenti risultati e grande successo tre attività parallele e distinte: studi giuridici, ricerche storiche e poesia drammatica. La madre, donna di buona cultura per i tempi, gli leggeva fin dalla prima infanzia opere di poesia e i drammi dei Metastasio, che il D. adattò per i suoi burattini mettendoci tanto impegno che in seguito il padre gli fece costruire un piccolo teatro familiare, dove il D. stesso si divertì a recitare con amici, parenti e concittadini durante le villeggiature autunnali, fino all'età di diciotto anni. Nel 1759 pubblicò a Torino un idillio pastorale, Arianna abbandonata, che ebbe grande successo in diverse versioni; nel 1766 diede alle stampe quattro volumi di Opere drammatiche con idilli, molte delle quali rappresentate nel teatro Reale di Torino; erano in lui molto vivi il senso dell'autonomia della cultura italiana e la necessità di trovare uno stile originale, indipendente dai modelli antichi o francesi. Tuttavia padre Agnesi, dotto linguista ed orientalista domenicano, suo professore, che non approvava tale tipo di letteratura, riuscì a distoglierlo per un po' da essa, spingendolo a lavori eruditi d'altro genere, ai quali il D. si appassionò subito tanto che nello stesso 1766 venne pubblicata, sempre a Torino, la sua prima opera storica, Dell'antica condizione del Vercellese e dell'antico Borgo di Santhiá. Sempre il padre Agnesi lo indirizzò agli studi giuridici nei q … [Click Below for Full Description]

[L'Ouverture, Toussaint]
[Göttingen]: [Heinrich Dieterich], 1803. Near fine.. Engraved portrait of the Haitian abolitionist, revolutionary, general, and governor Toussaint Louverture, printed the year of his death in a French prison. As the leader behind the first successful slave revolt in modern times, Louverture (1743-1803) became an icon of liberty, especially to enslaved Africans, across the transatlantic world. In 1861, abolitionist Wendell Phillips argued Louverture's superiority to most leaders admired by his fellow Americans: "I would call him Napoleon, but Napoleon made his way to empire over broken oaths and a sea of blood [...] I would call him Washington, but the great general had slaves."Louverture's leadership captivated Europe, with biographies of him circulating as early as 1802 in France, England, Sweden, Denmark, Germany (where this engraving was likely printed), and beyond. This portrait, from the Revolutions-Almanach of 1803, appears to be based on the 1802 engraving by Silvester in London (cf. Schomburg item ID 2006733). Our thanks to John Overholt for identifying the source of this portrait through the holdings of the Houghton Library.Known at the time as St. Domingo, upon its independence the country was renamed Haiti following the appellation of the indigenous peoples who were destroyed by the genocide wrought by Columbus. The only independent state in the Western hemisphere created by formerly enslaved people, Haiti has been an important symbol of Pan-African liberation. The many different images of Louverture that appeared at the end of his life reflected this growing s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris and Montpellier: 1803. First Edition. Hardcover. Dates: 1803-1821. Quarto. Contemporary French decorated boards, smooth calf spine (damaged by biopredation along hinges but not affecting text), vellum corner tips, sprinkled red edges. Some foxing and staining (particularly at the end of the first Dissertation). With ink stamps "Sigillum Principis Palencae" on endleaves. A fascinating volume. Good. The compiler of this curious Sammelband seems to have been fascinated by a number of disturbing topics including operations on cataracts, cyanose (or the blue malady), uterine hemorrhages, the anus "contre-nature," lithotomy, hysteria, vapors, apoplexy, and sulfuric acids. Illustrated with 4 plates, of which two are of medical instruments, one is of a shoulder brace, and one is too horrible to describe (but see illustration). A strange assemblage of horrendous early 19th-century medical studies; of the twenty works bound herein, no less than 12 were printed in Monpellier. CONTENTS: 1. Tartra, A. E.

Barba, An XI,, Paris, 1803. First edition. '. born at Calais, author of lively, licentious novels, widely read about 1800 (the favourite reading of Miss Crawley in Thackeray's Vanity Fair). During a riotous, dissipated youth this author returned to Calais on one occasion to find that his disgusted father had published notice of his death' (Oxford Companion to French Literature).Monsieur Botte was reprinted several times and seems to have found favour in 1803 adapted for the stage as M. Botte; ou, Le négociant anglais comédie en trois actes et en prose, imitée du roman de Pigault-Lebrun by Servières and Sutton de Clonard. The Critical Review describes an English edition of 1804 published by William Lane (of the Minerva Press), but if it was indeed published by Lane, we can find no trace of it in the usual catalogues. 12mo (182 × 100 mm), 4 vols, pp. [iv], 223, [1]; [iv], 207, [1]; [iv], 220; [iv], 236, [8] complete with half-titles, plus engraved frontispieces by G.

KRÃœDENER, Barbara Juliane (Von Vietinghof), Freifrau von. 1764-1825/6
Paris: N. Giguet and L.-G. and J.-F. Michaud for H. Henrichs, 1803. Sheep-backed speckled boards, flat spine, gilt-lettered title. First Edition of this semi-autobiographical epistolary novel by one of the leading architects of the Holy or Grand Alliance, which held sway in Europe from 1815 to 1853. Born in Riga to a wealthy family with access to the court of Catherine of Russia, the author married a local noble and diplomat much her senior. She sought relief from their distant relations in imagining her husband as the lover described in the letters published here, a sentimental romance. Her subsequent profound religious conversion opened the door to apocalyptic faith and intimacy with Tsar Alexander I, whom she prompted to initiate the Grand Alliance. She was known for her wild expenditures and charismatic proselytizing and is the subject of more than a dozen books. In good condition. ¶Ungherini, Manuel de bibliographie...des femmes célèbres II(2): 110; Giraud, Nouvelle bibliographie du roman epistolaire 1804/5a.

Very good. A later edition of Barbauld's influential collection of hymns, first published in London in 1781 and in America (Philadelphia) in 1795. Anna Letitia Barbauld was a prolific author, teacher, and early abolitionist whose work influenced William Wilberforce, William Blake, and William Wordsworth. Her two most notable books for children are LESSONS FOR CHILDREN and the present work, both of which provided guidance to generations of teachers and young students. Barbauld also insisted that her works were printed in slightly larger type sizes so that children could more easily read them. The present copy has a contemporary gift inscription from a teacher to a student in Chemsford, Massachusetts reading, "Lois Humphreys This little book is presented to her as a mark of approbation from her Instructor, as a small reward for laudable ambition & distinguished proficiency in learning. By Mr. Wilkes Allen afterwards Minister at Chemsford." Shaw & Shoemaker locate only one copy of this Boston edition (at Columbia University Teachers College Library), one of three editions printed in 1803 (the others in New York and Wilmington).

POINSOT, Pierre Georges.
[10], 398, [2 blank]; [6], 380 pp.Rare first edition of a horticultural manual. In the preface, Poinsot explains that he wanted to write a book on horticulture that would be of interest to both beginning and professional gardeners and that would cover all sorts of plants, gardens and terrains. Accordingly, the work can be divided into six sections, which deal successively with the fruit garden, vegetable garden, English (that is landscape) garden, flower garden, orangeries, and trees that are suitable for greenhouses. With the exception of the flower garden, Poinsot opens each section with a general introduction, before giving an alphabetical list of fruit trees, vegetables, trees, flowers, and other plants which may be planted in the different gardens. He gives much practical information on each species. A second edition followed a year later.According to Quérard, the author, l'abbé Pierre Georges Poinsot, was a member of the Agricultural Society of Lausanne.Water stain at the head of the plates in the first volume and the bindings slightly rubbed along the extremities, but otherwise in very good condition.l Bradley III, p. 112; Quérard VII, p. 237.

BELON, Pierre.
[28], 381, [1], [2 blank] pp.First and only early edition of an extremely important ornithological work in which Belon attempted to match birds named by Aristotle and Pliny with those then current in France. It is one of the first ornithological compendiums to be based, at least in part, on field observations, and "one of the earliest books dealing entirely with birds" (Zimmer). The work is divided into 7 parts, each with its own title-page: the first on the anatomy and physiology of birds; the second on birds of prey; the third on swimming birds; the fourth on shore birds; the fifth on galliformes (fowl); the sixth on crows and similar species; and the seventh on songbirds. The second part also includes an chapter on falconry. The author was a pioneer of comparative anatomy, illustrating and describing the homologies of human and avian skeletons (he could not have imagined that this would one day lead to Dawin's idea that they were actually relatives), and re-grouping birds according to their anatomy. Many of the woodcuts were taken from actual specimens. In his preface Belon acknowledges the painter Pierre Goudet or Gourdel(le), whose skills he has used most extensively, so he must have drawn the birds illustrated, though the woodblocks were cut by various artists.With the library stamp of the art collector Candidus Ritter von Engelshofen (1803-66), the bookplate of Franz, count of Thun-Hohenstein-Tetschen and that of Wynne Rice Hugh Jeudwine (1920-1984), author of the 1979 book, Art and style in printed books: six centuries of typography, design and illustration.

VII, 175 pp. [added: [26] pp.].Second edition of an interesting investigation of the policy, conduct and operations of the Hudson's Bay Company on the Pacific coast and in the Canadian north-west, by the historian and statistician Robert Montgomery Martin (1803(?)-1868).

GOLOVNIN, Vasilii Mikhailovich.
IV, 315, [1 blank]; [2], 356, [2]; VIII, LXXXIX, [1 blank], 302 pp.Second edition of the English translation of a primary source for the history of Russian-Japanese relations in the aftermath of disputes that began during Ivan Krusenstern's voyage around the world (1803-1806) for the Russian-American Company under Nikolay Rezanov (1764-1807). That voyage brought Rezanov's trade mission to Japan in 1805, but he failed to reach an agreement, leaving Russian ships prohibited from entering Japanese waters. The Russian sloop Diana under command of the explorer Colonel Vasily Golovnin and Captain Petr Rikord made a new Russian voyage around the world (1808-1811), especially to explore and survey the Russian Pacific shores, Kamchatka and Alaska. In 1811 Japanese samurai captured Golovnin and six of his men on the island of Kunashir and took them to the island of Hokkaido. The present book gives a gripping account of Golovnin's capture and Rikord's successful operation to rescue him in 1813.With the title-page of volume one lacking and provided in facsimile, the publisher's advertisements at the end of volume three lacking as well, and the "General introduction" bound in volume three rather than in volume one. A fair copy, slightly thumbed throughout.l Cordier, Japonica, cols. 456-466; Howgego, 1800-1850, G15.

Alexander Chalmers
London: 1803. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY EBAY STORE! I COMBINE AUCTIONS TO SAVE ON SHIPPING COSTS! Thank you and enjoy browsing my store! Here is a RARE set of books! This is a complete 45 volume set of the 1803 British Classical Essays by Alexander Chalmers. From the research I have done, I think this set is a FIRST EDITION set. To add to the provenance of this set, all the books have a label on the inside cover that shows this set was gifted to Jas. E. Goodrich? on Dec. 25th, 1915 by a man named HORATIO LOOMIS HARMON. That name might be worth researching. Evidently he (if it is the same man) was pretty influential in the building of Kansas City and with the railroads of the late 1800s. This set was bought at an auction in St. Louis, so it is very possible that the Harmon in this book is the same as the one in KC. The 1st volume is missing the front cover. The LAST (45th) volume has the BACK cover, but it is removed from the book. The other books range in condition from fair to very good. SEE PICS. I believe these are leather covered books. I tried to get pics of one of the better covers, and one of the more worn/discolored covers...to give you an idea of the overall condition. Overall, I would call these in good shape for book that are almost 215 years old! SHIPPING INCLUDES INSURANCE AND SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION. Please SEE PICTURES and email me with any questions. *******WINNING BIDDER TO PAY FOR SHIPPING IN THE U.S. TO CALCULATE SHIPPING, CLICK ON THE SHIPPING TAB ON THE AUCTION PAGE, THEN PUT YOUR ZIP CODE IN THE BOX.
