        ALCIPHRON OR THE MINUTE PHILOSOPHER IN SEVEN DIALOGUES

      Increase Cooke & Co, New Haven 1803 - The First American Philosophical Work,Owned in 1805 at Yale by a Subsequently Noted MD. 213 x 130 mm (8 3/8 x 5 1/8"). xiii, [i], 15-388 pp. (Without the leaf of ads at the end). First American Edition from the Fourth London Edition. An original American binding of sheepskin, flat spine divided into panels by gilt rules, original red morocco label. Front free endpaper and title page with ink ownership inscription of "William Tully . . . Yale College 1805" (see below). Jessop 16h. Front joint cracked (with just a slight give to the board), leather at corners worn through, covers with a handful of short scratches and a bit of minor soiling, faint offsetting throughout the text, but an excellent example of an early American sheep binding, completely unsophisticated, the text fresh and clean, and generally in a very much finer state of preservation than is typical of such volumes from this period. This is an excellent unsophisticated copy in its original American binding--with particularly interesting provenance--of the first printing in America of the first major work of philosophy written on American soil (even if by an Englishman). Written during a restful sojourn in Newport, Rhode Island, and first published by Berkeley (1685-1753) in 1732, the work has as its chief aim the defense of religion, especially the established Church of England, against the attacks and objections of atheists and "free-thinkers," nicknamed "minute philosophers." ("Alciphron" is the name of the chief exponent of "free-thinking" in the dialogues.) The book takes the form of seven colloquies, examining, in turn, the nature of the "free-thinkers," the heart of their charges against the established church, the nature of morality, arguments pertaining to the existence of God, contemporary Christian practice, the usefulness of scripture, and the apparent contradiction between faith and reason. Keynes tells us, "Luce places Alciphron with Joseph Butler's 'Analogy,' 1736, as the only comparable book on Christian apologetics in the eighteenth century." Our volume has three important connections with Yale. Timothy Dwight, author of the foreword, was the grandson of Jonathan Edwards and the former holder of the scholarship Berkeley established at Yale. More important, our former owner, William Tully (1785-1859) graduated from Yale College in 1806 and later taught there. Tully studied medicine with a local preceptor, entered Dartmouth Medical College in 1808, and two years later received a license to practice from the Connecticut Medical Society. His research and writings on plant-based sources of medication led to his appointment as professor of materia medica (pharmacology) and therapeutics at both the Vermont Medical Academy and Yale, a demanding position which he satisified by alternating terms between the two schools. Tully was brilliant but had a difficult personality, as reflected in his eventual resignation from Yale in 1842 after student complaints about his teaching (which had devolved to the point where he simply read aloud from a textbook). This dismissal allowed him to return to the research he preferred, and he published a 1,500-page compendium on pharmocology entitled "Materia Medica" in 1857-58, a significant contribution to the field. ANB says that "Tully contributed to the advance of American medicine in two ways. He helped to train hundreds of young physicians by increasing their awareness of the medicinal value of plants and herbs. He also contributed to the eventual discontinuation of bloodletting and calomel as standard medical practice.". First American Edition from the Fourth London Edition [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Collection of 12 documents, 1764-1803, from the office of Thomas Hinckley,

      1803 - solicitor acting for the Prebendaries of Prees, Curborough, Weeford, and Sawley, and for the Sub-chanter and Vicars, concerning leases on the lands providing their endowments. The documents are as follows: 1. PREBEND OF PIPA MINOR OR PREES Attested Copy of Indenture of 8th March 1736/7, reciting the lease by the then Prebendary on 3rd October 1707 of the Rectory of Tipton, Staffordshire, for 3 lives to the Revd. Michael Nickins senior, and the settlement in view of marriage of 11 March 1727 by his son, assigning the lease for a new term of 99 years to trustees to provide for his widow and family. Fine copy on 12 single sides 16½" x 13¼", examined by Arthur Hinckley and another, 12th May 1803. 2. SUB-CHANTER AND VICARS OF LICHFIELD CATHEDRAL (a) Attested Copy from the Dean's Register of the Will, 20th October 1762, of John Norton, Tanner and Grazier, lately deceased, leaving £8 p.a. to his widow Ann and other family legacies, the copy made 22nd May 1764. (b) Opinion by Thomas Sewell on Case stated, reciting an original lease of 21 years by the Sub-chanter and Vicars on 1st December 1751 to Mary and John Thropp, and the Thropps' assignment of 4 acres within the lease to John and Ann Norton on 25th December 1754. After 7 years, the lessors renewed the Thropps' lease except for the 4 acres, and the 4 acres separately to John Norton only, not Ann. Counsel thinks that Ann cannot now claim the benefit of the lease as against the executors, on the grounds that the assignment of 1754 was "voluntary and without consideration", but Hinckley notes that it is now clear that it was made in cancellation of a pre-marriage settlement, and that Counsel may now think differently. Together 4 sides 15¼" x 9¾", in Hinckley's hand, 7th June 1764. 3. PREBEND OF CURBOROUGH (a) MS "Account of Lands [in Amington, near Tamworth] that pay tithe to John Bentley, tenant J[ohn] Levett", listing 15 occupiers and their properties, pencil notes of the annual value, column "A sixpenny levy" partly made out, signed by Levett with initials, 1 side 4to, title on fourth side, no place, 4th July 1767. (b) Surrender of the Lease, for 3 lives from 19th July 1785, of one moiety of the prebendal lands, naming many fields and properties, to the Revd. Prebendary John Carver, in order to renew it for 21 years, the lease having been held, under John Levett's will of 13th December 1794, by the Revd. Richard Levett and Thomas Hinckley in trust for the Levett family. Among the revenues of the prebend are 5s p.a. from Matthew Boulton "of the Soho in . Handsworth", then the greatest manufactory in Europe. For the Levetts see Burke's Landed Gentry, 'Levett of Wychnor'. Signed and sealed by the trustees, 3 sides folio, no place, 2nd September 1803.

The southern boundary is "a close of land appropriated for the repairs of the Cathedral Church". 4 single sides 16" x 12¾", title on a 5th side, short central tears in folds without loss, no place, 4th October 1794. 5. PREBEND OF SAWLEY (a) Opinion by Samuel C. Cox on Case stated by Thomas Hinckley, acting for the Prebendary, concerning the desire of all parties to renew a lease granted in 1745 for 3 lives (to Robert Holden of Aston, d. 17th June 1746), the lease being subject by Holden's will to detailed family trusts, and asking whether the present Prebendary may legally renew the lease on the same terms (but taking account of deaths since 1745), given that the Cathedral's local statutes now allow only leases for 21 years, so as to preserve the various family interests [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel (without plate number). [1803]. Tall folio. Sewn. [1] (title), 2-20 pp. Slightly frayed at edges; minor creasing to upper margins; some minor staining. . First Edition. Haberkamp I, p. 81 and II, 23. Hoboken 11, 5. RISM M4124 (no copies recorded in the U.S.). "Mozart's only Te Deum, K141, is believed to have been composed in Salzburg at the end of 1769 and is modelled almost bar-for-bar on Michael Haydn's Te Deum for Grosswardein (1760). Its four movements contain functional, syllabic and homophonic choral writing, except for an impressively climactic duple-metred double fugue ('In te Domine speravi'). The 'Miserere nostri' (bars 118-25) also stands apart as a beautiful, prayerful passage for soft a cappella voices." Eisen and Keefe: The Cambridge Mozart Encyclopedia, p. 460.

        THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. SALEM REGISTER OFFICE...WASHINGTON, OCT. 17. THIS DAY AT 3 O'CLOCK, THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE WAS DELIVERED IN THE TWO HOUSES OF CONGRESS BY MR. HARVIE, SERCRETARY TO THE PRESIDENT

      Salem, Ma.: Salem Register, October 26, 1803.. Broadside, 19 x 12 inches, printed in three columns. Old folds. Four small separations at folds, affecting a total of seven words of text (but not the overall legibility). In very good condition. Edges untrimmed. A very rare printing of Thomas Jefferson's address to Congress presenting the Louisiana Purchase Treaty and urging its speedy ratification by the Senate and appropriation of funds for the purchase by the House. We are able to locate only one other copy of this Salem printing of Jefferson's message, the importance of which was recognized throughout the United States. This printing is also notable for having been done in Federalist New England, where there were many voices highly critical of Jefferson's maneuvers. In late April, 1803, representatives of the United States and France agreed upon a treaty by which the United States would buy the Louisiana Territory, some 828,000 square miles of land, for a total of fifteen million dollars (about three cents per acre). By July, the official documents, which had been signed in France and had received Napoleon's approval, had arrived in Washington. All that was needed to finalize the purchase was American ratification. The Constitution, however, was silent on whether or not the President could make such outright purchases. From the start, Jefferson had concerns about the legality of the agreement, and he initially considered asking Congress for a constitutional amendment to authorize the purchase. However, the treaty required the exchange of ratifications by October 30 (six months after the signing), and Congress was not scheduled to convene until November. This fact, coupled with the fear that the French were starting to regret the agreement, led Jefferson to call a special session of Congress, beginning October 17. On that day Jefferson sent this message to Congress, in which he announced the purchase of the Louisiana Territory. "Propositions had...been authorized for obtaining, on fair conditions, the sovereignty of New- Orleans, and of other possessions in the quarter interesting to our quiet...the enlightened government of France saw, with just discernment, the importance to both nations of such liberal arrangements as might permanently promote the peace, friendship, and interests of both: and the property and sovereignty of all Louisiana, which had been restored to them, has, on certain conditions, been transferred to the United States....Whilst the property and sovereignty of the Mississippi and its waters secure an independent outlet for the produce of the western states, and an uncontrouled navigation through their whole course, free from collision with other powers, and the dangers to our peace from that source, the fertility of the country, its climate and extent, promise, in due season, important aids to our treasury, an ample provision for our posterity, and a wide spread for the blessings of freedom and equal laws." Jefferson goes on to urge the treaty's ratification by the Senate, and the appropriation of funds for the purchase of the Louisiana Territtory by the House. Jefferson also goes on to announce the purchase of lands from the Kaskaskia Indians, updates the Congress on American naval operations in the Mediterranean, discusses the national debt, and reflects on the growing conflict between France and England. The Senate ratified the Louisiana Purchase Treaty a few days later, on October 20, by a vote of 24 to 7. Jefferson's message transmitting the Louisiana Purchase Treaty to the Senate for ratification was printed as a government document of ten pages, published in 1803. There were also two additional newspaper extra printings of the message, one issued by the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER in Washington on October 17 (copies located at Yale and the Huntington Library) and in a supplement to the TRUE AMERICAN newspaper of Trenton, New Jersey (a single copy is located at Yale). We are able to locate only one other copy of this SALEM REGISTER printing of Jefferson's important address, at the American Antiquarian Society. Not in Shaw & Shoemaker. A rare printing of an American state paper of the greatest importance. OCLC 79271235.

Erste Ausgabe. - Garrison/Morton 4923; Heirs of Hippocrates 1163 (Ausg. 1818): 'One of the earliest systematic works on psychotherapy. In it Reil sets forth principles and different techniques of therapy. Although he did not formulate a comprehensive theory of personality, he recognized the necessity of understanding the healthy personality before the pathological personality could be understood. He believed that mental illness is a psychological phenomenon which requires psychological methods of treatment and was convinced of the close relationship between mind and body. Even though he espoused many enlightened views, his therapeutic procedures included throwing patients into water and firing cannons in order to return them to rationality. Considered crude by today's standards, his psychotherapeutic methods were nevertheless the result of his deep knowledge of medicine and clinical psychiatry and his work is considered by some to represent the beginnings of modern psychotherapy.' - 'In seiner classischen Schrift. gab er eine packende Schilderung von dem erbärmlichen Zustand der deutschen Irrenhäuser und indem er auch für die Berechtigung einer physischen Cur bei Geisteskrankheiten plaidirte, unter Umständen jene als durchaus nothwenig hinstellte, hat Reil sehr erheblich in praktische Beziehung zu dem Aufschwunge der Psychiatrie beigetragen, ja, man kann sagen, eine neue Periode in derselben anbahnen geholfen'(Hirsch/H.

"Roots of our current "era of timbre" and interest in the nature of sound and musical perception go back many years. Since the seventeenth century, an important current of French intellectual thought has been belief in a mechanical connection between music and the body. While Descartes argued this from a philosophical perspective Martin Mersenne in his acoustical studies and later Joseph Louis Roger in his treatise on the effects of music on the body promoted sound as an object of research."

        Catalogue des Livres précieux, singuliers et rares, tant Imprimés que Manuscrits, qui composaient la Bibliothèque de M.

      - dont la vente se fera.le 15 Novembre 1803.et jours suivans. xxiv, 522, 4 pp., one leaf of errata. 8vo, slightly later sheep-backed marbled boards (minor rubbing), flat spine gilt, uncut. Paris, Bleuet jeune, 1803. The very uncommon sale catalogue of the library of Méon (1748-1829), who is described in a contemporary note on the title as "Commis au Bureau de la Guerre." Méon, though employed in the War Ministry, was a scholar specializing in early French literature. He had taken advantage of the disorder of the French Revolution to buy quantities of valuable books cheaply. But by 1799, he was destitute and obliged to send his precious collection to auction. According to the sales notice, the collection was second only to the duc de la Vallière’s library from the points of view of variety, choice of copies, and excellence of early editions. The sale catalogue describes many early French romances and plays, belles-lettres, and historical writings. His bibliographical knowledge later earned him a position at the Bibliothèque Impérial, which dismissed him for poor librarianship. But in 1826, now "Royale," reappointed him, eventually granting him a pension. Méon was the editor of several important texts, including the Le Roman du Renard (1825). This is an interesting copy, priced throughout in a contemporary hand. Quite often, buyers’ names are supplied and there are many notes throughout in the same hand, furnishing bibliographical details or notes on condition. This copy also has the four-page "Ordre des Vacations" and errata leaf. 4166 lots. Fine copy. ? Brunet, III, 1639. Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions.1643-1830, 446.

        Letters from His Excellency George Washington, to Arthur Young, Esq., F.R.S., and Sir John Sinclair, Bart., M.P., containing an account of his Husbandry, with his Opinions on Various Questions in Agriculture; and Many Particulars of the Rural Economy of the United States

      128 pp. 8vo, cont. tree sheep (some browning due to the quality of the paper), red morocco lettering piece on spine. Alexandria: Printed by Cottom & Stewart, 1803. First collected edition and a very nice copy. The Young and Sinclair letters were originally published separately in 1801 and 1800, respectively. This is the first edition to contain both, published in Virginia within a few years of Washington's death. These letters offer perhaps the best picture from his own pen of Washington as an agriculturist and plantation owner, seeking to improve both his own lands and those of his country through this correspondence with two of the leading British agricultural theorists.

Armorial bookplate and tiny inventory sticker on each front pastedown. Minor scattered foxing. Near fine. "The most important general history of early South Sea discoveries containing practically everything of importance on the subject" - Hill. Burney sailed as lieutenant on Cook's second and third voyages. His work on A CHRONOLOGICAL HISTORY... was encouraged by Sir Joseph Banks, and Burney was given complete access to Banks' extraordinary collection of books and manuscripts. Many of the accounts published by Burney remain unavailable elsewhere, and the present work will always be one of the chief authorities on Pacific exploration. Burney covers the 250 years of exploration before Cook, beginning with Magellan and ending with Bougainville. Detailed accounts of the Spanish, French, English, and Dutch voyages are printed, well illustrated with maps and views. Volume IV was apparently particularly popular, as it contains Burney's account of the pirates (see Vol. IV, pp.1-326). This section of the work was republished separately in 1816 as HISTORY OF THE BUCCANEERS OF AMERICA (London, 1816). The volumes are arranged chronologically, as follow: Volume I: From the Earliest Discovery of the Pacific by Europeans to the voyage of Sir Francis Drake in 1579. Volume II: From 1579 to 1620 (Sarmiento de Gamboa, Thomas Cavendish, Merick, Quiros, Spilbergen, Schouten, Le Maire, Nodal, etc.). Volume III: From 1620 to 1688 (the Nassau Fleet, Kwast, Tasman, Brouwer, Narbrough, Peche, La Roche, etc.). Volume IV: From 1688 to 1723 (buccaneers: Spaniards in Hayti, Careri, Halley, Dampier, Woodes, Rogers, Frezier, etc.). Volume V: From 1723 to 1764 (New Philippine Islands, Bouvet, Anson, Bougainville, etc.). HOWES B1002, "c." SABIN 9387. HILL 221. HOCKEN, pp.30-34. FERGUSON 372.

        Mémoire pour le chef de brigade Magloire Pélage, et pour les habitans de la Guadeloupe, chargés, par cette colonie, de l'administration provisoire, après le départ du capitaine-général Lacrosse, dans le mois de brumaire an 10.

      Paris, Desenne, Petit, Le Normant, Veuve Dufresne, an XI-1803, - 2 vol. in-8, [4]-326-XL et VIII-358-[2] pp., basane fauve, dos lisse, chainette dorée au dos, tranches bleues (reliure de l'époque). Bon exemplaire. Rare, et important pour l'histoire de la Guadeloupe au début du XIXe siècle. Pélage était cet officier de couleur auquel le contre-amiral Lacrosse, nommé capitaine-général de la colonie en 1800, avait refusé de remettre le commandement de la garnison, à la mort du général Béthencourt, alors que cette fonction lui revenait légalement comme officier le plus ancien dans le grade le plus élevé (août 1801). Il s'ensuivit une sédition des troupes, bientôt rejointes par une partie de la population : Lacrosse fut expulsé de la colonie en novembre 1801, et Pélage avait mis en place une commission de gouvernement, dont il devint le chef, tout en protestant de sa fidélité à la République. Bonaparte négligea ces démonstrations d'allégeance, et persista à ne voir dans ces événements qu'une révolte coloniale : la réponse fut l'expédition confiée à Richepanse, avec les suites que l'on sait. Ce mémoire, rédigé par Flasans en collaboration avec son ami Jean-Thomas Langlois, ancien avocat, forme la défense de Pélage et des habitants qui avaient participé à sa commission de gouvernement. Le tome II est entièrement occupé par les pièces justificatives. Sabin, 25674. Chadenat, 828.

Elegant contemporary binding in full mottled calf, gilt contour on boards, flat ornemented spine with dark green title label. One or two damp stains, worm hole through twenty pages T.I. but a very nice set. Complete set of the six hundred and thirty-five numbers of "The Spectator", reprinted as originally issued. Founded by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele it was published 6 times a week from 1st March 1711 until 6th December 1712, and then, without the collaboration of Steele, three times a week from 18th June to 20th December 1714 (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). The paper was aimed to provide educated talking points, enliven morality with wit, understand that culture and taste transcend political differences. Among those subjects discussed: "Women the more powerful part of our people", "Sign-posts, the absurdities of many of them", "Gigglers in church reproved", "Socrates, his notion of pleasure and pain", "Boileau censured, and for what", "Greeks and Romans, the different methods observed by them in the education of their children", "Queen Ann Boleyn"s last letter to King Henry"?and many "Letters" in each volume, some of which, it is suspected, were written by the editors themselves.
