        Traite d'economie politique, ou simple exposition de la maniere dont se forment, se distribuent et se consomment les richesses.

      Paris, de l'Imprimerie de Crapelet, Chez Deterville, Libraire, An XI - 1803.. 2 volumes in-8, demi-veau havane de l'epoque a petits coins de velin, dos lisses ornes d'un riche decor aux petits fers de resilles, fers "Consulat", dentelles et palettes dores, pieces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin bordeaux, tranches mouchetees, (2) f., xlvj, 527 p. et (2) f., 572 p. Edition originale, rare, de cette brillante synthese de la pensee economique classique, qui obtint un succes considerable, sans doute le plus important de la litterature economique en cette premiere moitie du XIXe siecle et dont la portee fut immense. A sa sortie en 1803, l'oeuvre fut mal accueillie par Napoleon qui demanda a Say de reecrire son traite afin de le mettre en conformite avec l'economie de guerre basee sur le protectionnisme et les regulations. Devant le refus de l'auteur, l'ouvrage fut interdit et Say revoque du Tribunat en 1804, apres avoir passe quatre annees a la tete de la section financiere. Il fallut attendre 1814 et la chute de l'Empire pour qu'une nouvelle edition fut publiee. Organise en trois parties, selon le triptyque devenu classique en economie: production, distribution et consommation des richesses, l'ouvrage contient une defense de la politique economique liberale dans la lignee de l'ecole classique francaise, prefiguration de la revolution marginaliste et de l'ecole autrichienne d'economie. (Einaudi, 5118. 'En francais dans le texte', n° 207. Goldsmiths, 18616. Kress, B.4729). Provenance: Charles-Marie de Lafont du Cujula (1749-1811) litterateur, homme politique, maire d'Agen, depute du Lot-et-Garonne dans les Assemblees revolutionnaires et membre du Conseil des Anciens, avec ex-libris grave. Bel exemplaire, tres bien relie a l'epoque..

      Frankfurt, 1. X. 1803. - 2 SS. 4to. Unveröffentlichter Brief an den namentlich nicht genannten Schleusinger Gymnasialdirektor Albrecht Georg Walch (1737-1822) hinsichtlich des Nachlasses seines im Juni verstorbenen Freundes, des Schriftstellers Wilhelm Heinse (1746-1803), der vier Jahrzehnte zuvor Walchs Schüler gewesen war: "Ehrwürdiger Greis, verehrtester Lehrer von Heinse! Um die Manen meines Freundes auszusöhnen folgen, meinem Versprechen gemäß, beyliegend, ein Prachtexemplar von der Hildegard, und ein ungebundenes vom Ardinghello. Ersteres war, wie die mit Papierstreifen bemerkten beygeschriebenen Stellen zeigen, das Handexemplar des Verewigten. Die erste Zeile ist verständlich, dem geheimen Sinn der beiden andern Stellen vermag ich nicht zu enträthseln. Behalten Sie, nach Gutfinden, solche für sich, oder widmen Sie sie, als ein geringes Andenken von mir, Ihrer Gymnasiums Bibliothek. Ich habe diese Bücher aus der Auction der Verlassenschaft erstanden, weil die Verwandten nicht auf der Natural Auslieferung bestanden. Unter seinen, mir ausgelieferten, sämmtlichen Papieren, befindet sich auch die vollständige Handschrift oder eigentlich das Concept von der Hildegard mit Bley geschrieben. Auch das Concept der Anastasia. Wäre es Ihnen angenehm, so will ich solche in Ihrer Gymnasiums Bibliothek deponiren - vielleicht auch einstens mehrere. Heinses Geist war, wenn man ihn näher kannte, eine gewiß seltene Erscheinung. Gleim nannte ihn oft, in seinen Briefen, Feuergeist, Feuergenius, und ehrte und liebte ihn, bis ans Ende seiner Tage, mit unaussprechlicher Zärtlichkeit. Lassen Sie uns, das wenige menschliche, was er hatte vergessen, und uns an seinem Frohsinn, und hellem Verstande weiden. Sehr würden Sie mich verbinden, wenn Sie mir jemand nennen könnten, der mir Anekdoten von seinen Kinder- und Jugendjahren mitzutheilen im Stande wäre, oder der mir seinen Vater zu schildern vermöchte. Mit wahrer Hochachtung Ihr / ergebenster / Soemmerring". Am 20. Oktober antwortete Walch mit Auskünften zu überlebenden Klassenkameraden Heinses und der Aussicht auf Forschungsergebnisse zu dessen Kinderjahren und Vater (nur im Druck überliefert; vgl. Briefwechsel, Nr. 891 S. 464f.). Das Gegenschreiben Soemmerings vom 25. Oktober (½ S.; Bitte um Empfangsschein für das mit vorliegendem Brief übersandte Material) wurde 1979 bei Stargardt um DM 800,- versteigert. - Im unteren Blattviertel verso biograph. Vermerk und Erwerbungsdatum ("19. April 1882") von Sammlerhand in rosa Tinte. Nicht in: Soemmerring, Briefwechsel (Werke Bd. 20): Nov. 1792-April 1805, hg. von F.

        The New Wonderful Museum, and Extraordinary Magazine

      1803. GRANGER, William. The New Wonderful Museum, and Extraordinary Magazine: Being a complete Repository of all the Wonders, Curiosities, and Rarities of Nature and Art, from the beginning of the World to the Present Time.... Six volumes. Illustrated with an engraved title and 143 plates. 8vo., bound in contemporary half morocco. London: M. Allen, 1803-1808. WITH: KIRBY, R. S. The Wonderful and Scientific Museum, or, Magazine of Remarkable Characters. Including all the Curiosities of Nature and Art. Six volumes. Illustrated with an engraved title and 113 full-page engraved plates. 8vo., bound in contemporary half morocco. London: R.S. Kirby, 1820. |~||~||~||~||~| Very rare encyclopedias of the weird, wonderful and freakish, providing a voyeurish glimpse into the off-beat imagination of early nineteenth-century England. In Granger you find texts on, and depictions of, varied characters such as Mackabarang, A Native of New South Wales; Mr. John Love, Bookseller of Weymouth, the fattest and heaviest man ever known in England; the celebrated Henry Jenkins, who lived to the surprising age of 169 years; the eruption of Mount Vesuvius; &c. In the Kirby set, the engravings and accompanying text portray such eccentric figures as Francis Trouille, the horned man, 185-year old Petratsch Zortan of Hungary, the Wild Child of Aveynon (subject of an excellent Truffaut film), and the beautiful Elizabeth Woodstock, buried alive in the snow for eight days. Other plates depict assorted giants, dwarfs, mermaids, etc., as well as some very human-like vegetables and chickens. According to the instructions to the binder, the Granger set is missing ****, but it is highly likely that these were never present in this copy, and at least one institutional copy we checked is also missing one of the plates. Some browning throughout, bindings rubbed, but nevertheless acceptable sets of these rare works. Lowndes VII, 2981.

"He lived a relatively solitary existence and spent his leisure time studying Persian, Bengalese Hindi, Arabic, and Sanskrit. He became an elegant speaker and writer of Persian." He was an acquaintaince of 'Oriental' Jones (Sir William Jones). Ouseley was named ambassador-extraordinary to the court of Fath Ali Shah in Persia in 1810, negotiated several treaties, and returned to England. "He was one of those responsible for the founding of the Royal Asiatic Society in London in 1823 and was associated with the formation of the oriental translation committee, of which he was elected chairman. He became president of the Society for the Publication of Oriental Texts, formed in 1842." Uncommon.

        Die kleine geistliche Harfe der Kinder Zions, oder auserlesene Geistreiche Gesange.

      Germantaun: Michael Billmeyer, 1803. - 8vo., (6 4/8 x 4 inches). Woodcut frontispiece of David playing his harp with near contemporary hand-colour (strengthened in one or two places on verso). District of Pennsylvania copyright notice on the verso of the title-page, one general and one sectional title-page. Woodcut musical notation, head- and tail-pieces (repair to verso page 382, browned throughout). Contemporary sheep, with one of two claps, and two brass catches (extremities a little rubbed). Provenance: WITH A VERY FINE CONTEMPORARY FRAKTUR-WORK BOOKPLATE by/for Abraham Clemmer, dated 1803 on the recto of the first blank (fore-edge strengthened on verso). THE FIRST MENNONITE HYMNAL PRINTED IN AMERICA - WITH FINE PENNSYLVANIA FRAKTUR-WORK BOOKPLATE First edition printing 40 psalms from Ambrosius Lobwasser's translation of the Psalms first published in1573, followed by 475 hymns supplied by the brethren. The beautiful bookplate at the beginning of the hymnal is a simple, but very fine and attractive example of Pennsylvania fraktur-work. The asymmetrically decorated rectangular border surrounds the red and black fractured calligraphy that names the book and its owner. Perched on the top border is a brightly coloured bird, with a black head, yellow chest, red wings and green tail, facing a large fuschia-like flower. Trailing down the right-hand border is a red flowering vine with heart-shaped buds; motifs that are repeated within the bookplate border. Fraktur work was used to decorate many different kinds of manuscripts and documents made by the mainly German-speaking communities of Pennsylvania. Fraktur is also the name of the specific style of calligraphic lettering used on these documents, as here. It was a popular typeface in German-speaking parts of Europe from the mid-1500s until the 1940s. In 1683, upon William Penn's invitation, Mennonites from Krefeld, Germany, settled near Philadelphia. Others followed, coming from Germany, Switzerland, and Holland. Among the migrants were Amish, followers of Jacob Amman who had split from the main body of Mennonites over issues of religious practice in the 1690s.

      Zürich, Orell, Fuesli und Compagnie, 1803. Royal-8vo (245 x 153mm) . pp. 95, (1), with 42 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary boards, spine with lettered label. First and only edition. Schellenberg illustrated a number of beautiful botanical and entomological monographs and was considered to be one of the best natural history artists of his time. He was rightly famous for his minute details and precision. Roemer writes about him as follows: "Eben dieser Schellenberg hat ... eine erstaunliche Menge von Insecten nach der Natur gezeichnet und gemahlt ... Richtigkeit in der Zeichnung, Leben und das herrlichste Colorit scheinen da mit einander um die Palme streiten zu wollen" (Thanner, Schmutz & Geus. J.R. Schellenberg, p. 144). "The title and introduction state clearly that 2 amateurs provided the names and the text of the new taxa proposed in this work; Schellenberg was only responsible for the plates. As the two amateurs are unnamed in the work, common practice is to attribute the names to Schellenberg"(Evenhuis p. 693). Text in German and French.//Nissen ZBI, 3650.

        Ausgefüllter Quittungsvordruck mit eigenh. U. ("Guillotin").

      Paris, 12. XII. 1803. - 1 S. Qu.-8vo. Quittung über die Einzahlung des Quartalbeitrags der Galvanischen Gesellschaft für den Mediziner Claude François Duchanoy (1742-1827), im linken Rand unterschrieben von Guillotin als Präsident der Vereinskasse sowie von dem Physiker Joseph Izarn als Sekretär, datiert den "20. Frimaire an 12". - Der aufklärerisch orientierte Mediziner und Freimaurer Guillotin, grundsätzlich ein Gegner der Todesstrafe und 1789 Mitglied der Konstituante, war für eine Reform der uneinheitlichen Hinrichtungspraxis des Ancien Régime eingetreten und hatte eine einfache Apparatur befürwortet, die ohne Ansehen des Standes angewandt werden sollte. Die untrennbare Verknüpfung von Guillotins Namen mit dem wenig später von der französischen Revolution als Instrument der Massenhinrichtung eingesetzten Fallbeil, an dessen Entwicklung er mittelbar beteiligt gewesen war, führte dazu, dass die Familie nach seinem Tod 1814 den eigenen Namen änderte. - Nach der Revolution trat Guillotin insbesondere als Pionier der Pockenimpfung in Frankreich hervor. Bereits 1784 hatte er der königlichen Kommission angehört, die Mesmers Lehre vom "thierischen Magnetismus" untersuchte (welche damals als unethisch verurteilt wurde). Als die Erfolge der Elektrophysiologie voranschritten und Napoleon 1802 Preise für galvanische Forschung in Frankreich auslobte, zählte er zu den ersten Mitgliedern der neugegründeten "Galvanischen Gesellschaft", der u. a. Laplace, Lacépède, Chaptal und Fourcroy, aber auch viele wissenschaftliche Amateure aus Napoleons engstem Kreis angehörten. - Im Rand unbedeutend angestaubt; in Bleistift alter Sammlervermerk ("Guillotin J. J.").

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Frankfurt, 1. X. 1803.. 2 SS. 4to.. Unveröffentlichter Brief an den namentlich nicht genannten Schleusinger Gymnasialdirektor Albrecht Georg Walch (1737-1822) hinsichtlich des Nachlasses seines im Juni verstorbenen Freundes, des Schriftstellers Wilhelm Heinse (1746-1803), der vier Jahrzehnte zuvor Walchs Schüler gewesen war: "Ehrwürdiger Greis, verehrtester Lehrer von Heinse! Um die Manen meines Freundes auszusöhnen folgen, meinem Versprechen gemäß, beyliegend, ein Prachtexemplar von der Hildegard, und ein ungebundenes vom Ardinghello. Ersteres war, wie die mit Papierstreifen bemerkten beygeschriebenen Stellen zeigen, das Handexemplar des Verewigten. Die erste Zeile ist verständlich, dem geheimen Sinn der beiden andern Stellen vermag ich nicht zu enträthseln. Behalten Sie, nach Gutfinden, solche für sich, oder widmen Sie sie, als ein geringes Andenken von mir, Ihrer Gymnasiums Bibliothek. Ich habe diese Bücher aus der Auction der Verlassenschaft erstanden, weil die Verwandten nicht auf der Natural Auslieferung bestanden. Unter seinen, mir ausgelieferten, sämmtlichen Papieren, befindet sich auch die vollständige Handschrift oder eigentlich das Concept von der Hildegard mit Bley geschrieben. Auch das Concept der Anastasia. Wäre es Ihnen angenehm, so will ich solche in Ihrer Gymnasiums Bibliothek deponiren - vielleicht auch einstens mehrere. Heinses Geist war, wenn man ihn näher kannte, eine gewiß seltene Erscheinung. Gleim nannte ihn oft, in seinen Briefen, Feuergeist, Feuergenius, und ehrte und liebte ihn, bis ans Ende seiner Tage, mit unaussprechlicher Zärtlichkeit. Lassen Sie uns, das wenige menschliche, was er hatte vergessen, und uns an seinem Frohsinn, und hellem Verstande weiden. Sehr würden Sie mich verbinden, wenn Sie mir jemand nennen könnten, der mir Anekdoten von seinen Kinder- und Jugendjahren mitzutheilen im Stande wäre, oder der mir seinen Vater zu schildern vermöchte. Mit wahrer Hochachtung Ihr / ergebenster / Soemmerring". Am 20. Oktober antwortete Walch mit Auskünften zu überlebenden Klassenkameraden Heinses und der Aussicht auf Forschungsergebnisse zu dessen Kinderjahren und Vater (nur im Druck überliefert; vgl. Briefwechsel, Nr. 891 S. 464f.). Das Gegenschreiben Soemmerings vom 25. Oktober (½ S.; Bitte um Empfangsschein für das mit vorliegendem Brief übersandte Material) wurde 1979 bei Stargardt um DM 800,- versteigert. - Im unteren Blattviertel verso biograph. Vermerk und Erwerbungsdatum ("19. April 1882") von Sammlerhand in rosa Tinte. - Nicht in: Soemmerring, Briefwechsel (Werke Bd. 20): Nov. 1792-April 1805, hg. von F. Dumont (Basel 2001); wäre als Nr. 889a einzureihen.

        The Costume of the Russian Empire

      1803. COSTUME- RUSSIA. The Costume of the Russian Empire. By William Alexander. [8], 73 ff. Illustrated with 73 hand-coloured stipple engraved plates. Folio, 355 x 257 mm, bound in English nineteenth-century full straight grained green morocco. London: W. Miller, 1803. First Edition of this collection of 75 hand-coloured stipple-engravings depicting costume from the Russian Empire, including dress of the Finns and Tartars, in the age of Catherine the Great. The illustrations are based on a series of engravings by Carl Wilhelm Mueller, which were cut in St. Petersburg between 1776 and 1779. They depict peasants and gentry, merchants, magicians, priests and shamen in their traditional dress. These illustrations are slightly larger that Mueller's originals and beautifully coloured. The descriptions, attributed to William Alexander, derive from some of the most informed sources of the day, including Mueller's Description de toutes les Nations de l'Empire de Russie, Chappe D'Autertoche's Voyage en Siberie, Stepan Krasheninnikov's Description de Kamtshatka, and others. This is the fourth in a series of costume books printed in London by William Miller. There were six volumes in all, the other volumes depicting the costumes of China, the punishments of China, and the costume of Turkey, Austria and Great Britain. This is the later issue with Howett and Brimmer mentioned on title and with watermarks dated 1821-22. Rebacked with original spine laid down. Abbey, Travel 244. Colas 72. Lipperheide 1341.

        The Works of Francis Bacon... in Ten Volumes

      London: J. Johnson et al., 1803. Ten volumes, octavo, engraved portrait frontispiece and folding table, prize-plate & bookplate, later gift inscription from Buxton to his son; early diced calf with the insignia of Trinity College Dublin to the boards. Belonging to the famous abolitionist Thomas Fowell Buxton. A fine and most attractive set in original calf, presented as a school prize in 1806 to Thomas Fowell Buxton, the social reformer (and with his own engraved bookplate and later presentation inscription).The set has a school prize plate from its original presentation to Buxton for his progress in the Third Class of Trinity College, Dublin, which he attended from 1803 to 1807. It would be interesting to know whether the works of Bacon had any direct influence on Buxton's career, but he evidently cared for the set as he presented it to his eldest son and the Second Baronet, Edward North Buxton and his wife Catherine, on 12 December 1836.

        Areostiade, ossia il mongolfiero. Poema di V.L.C

      Milan: 1803. 2 vols. in one, 12mo (157 x 97 mm.) xi, [1], 296; [4], 383, [1] pp. Contemporary tree calf, smooth spine with red and dark green morocco lettering pieces, small gilt Montgolfier balloon tool at top and bottom, yellow red-sprinkled edges.***First Complete Edition of an epic poem on ballooning and the first balloon flights. In elevated verse, the poem provides a history of aerostation and technical information on the construction of the first balloons. Not only a rare choice of topic for the genre, Lancetti’s poem is also, with twenty cantos in ottava rima, several containing 130 to 160 stanzas, possibly the longest poem ever written on a means of transport. Not surprisingly, the author admits, in the interesting preface, to an obsession with hot air balloons in his youth. Having witnessed the first ascension in Italy, made in Milan by Paolo Andreani and the Gerli brothers on 25 February 1784, Lancetti decided, at the age of 17, to write a poem on the topic. He describes difficulties finding the correct style and varying the descriptions of the different ballooning experiments, which were fundamentally so similar. Interrupted by the obligations of life and career, he returned periodically to the work; finally, emerging from the “political vortex” of the 1790’s, he decided at the urging of his friends to publish it. The poem quickly regained the obscurity from whence it had emerged. A Cremonese classicist and man of letters, Lancetti published a bio-bibliography of his countrymen, a dictionary of pseudonyms, and translations from the Greek. The first ten cantos of the present labor of love were first published at Milan in 1802, in quarto format. Although the title of that edition announced twenty cantos, vol. II was apparently never printed (three copies located, Parma, Biblioteca Palatina, Library of Congress and British Library, all with vol. I only).Copies of this edition are held by Harvard and LC. Not at the BnF.

This place, then became a large pool is covered with lighted boats, where major roam, enjoying the calm and cool of the night: I thought also that fewer homes one would see, the more they paroîtroient pleasant: the main one is the Elfy Bey palace can be seen on the right, which is lit by fire pots; it became a historical monument to have been the residence of Bonaparte during his stay in Egypt, and the badge value with which it was defended in the time of the siege of Cairo in the year 8.Rousseurs marginal unléger marginal tear, otherwise good conservation.Publié for the first time in two volumes, with an atlas of engravings by Didot in 1802, the 'Journey to the Lower and Upper Egypt was so successful that it was translated 1803 in English and German, and a few years later in Dutch and Italian, among others. Almost all boards are designed by Denon, who also engraved himself a few, including portraits of the inhabitants of Egypt, who still kept the freshness of sketches taken on the spot (our 104-111 ).

At the invitation of Bonaparte, he joined the expedition to Egypt in shipping from May 14, 1798 on the frigate "La Juno." Protected by French troops, he had the opportunity to travel the country in all directions in order to gather the material that was the basis for his artistic work and the most important literary. It supports in particular General Desaix in Upper Egypt, which he refers to numerous sketches, ink wash and other drawings in pen, black chalk, or chalk. He draws constantly, mostly on his knee, standing or on horseback, and sometimes even under the fire of the enemy. After a journey of 13 months during which he drew thousands of sketches, Vivant Denon returned to France with Bonaparte, and became the first artist to publish the story of the expedition. The 141 boards that accompany his diary retrace its entire journey from the coast of Corsica to the pharaonic monuments of Upper Egypt.
