        La mulatre comme il y a beaucoup de blanches. Ouvrage pouvant faire suite au Negre comme il y a peu de blanc.

      A Paris, chez Marchand, libraire (...), an IX - 1803.. 2 volumes in-12, cartonnage marbre a la bradel, pieces de titre de veau bleu (rel. moderne), (3), [14]-264 p. et 302 p., 2 frontispices. Rarissime edition originale et unique ancienne, illustree de deux belles planches frontispice gravees sur cuivre, de ce singulier roman epistolaire militant, qui s'attaque en 1803, aux stereotypes coloniaux, aux prejuges racistes et au dogme de l'impossibilite des mariages interraciaux, en donnant une illustration des vertus morales des metisses. "'Les liaisons dangereuses' a Saint Domingue : tel pourrait etre le titre de ce roman sentimental rarissime. Epistolaire comme le roman de Laclos, il y ajoute une dimension raciale et explore le prejuge raciste, donnant a voir le libertin blanc, Sylvain, et sa proie, la mulatresse Mimi. Cette derniere, tiraillee entre l'amour et l'inflexible prejuge d'alors contre le mariage mixte, se trouve ainsi face a une variante du drame cornelien..." (John D. Garrigus, L'Harmattan, 2007). "Anonymous episolatory novel set in Saint-Domingue concerning racial prejudice and interracial marriage from the point of view of a libertine. This novel, sometimes attributed to a Joseph La Vallee, is often called 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses' of Saint-Domingue" (John Carter Brown Library - Haiti Collection). Le titre fait reference a un roman de Joseph La Vallee, 'Le Negre comme il y a peu de blancs', paru en 1789 qui obtint un grand succes public. Tres bon exemplaire, tres frais, grand de marges. Collation conforme a celui decrit par John Carter Brown Library..

Autenrieth), gestochener typographischer Titel (gestochen von Abel), 316 S., 4 Bl. "Inhalt des ersten Theils"; Drucktitel, 334 S. einschließlich "Inhalt des zweiten Teils" und "Anhang".

Erste vollständige Ausgabe von Goethes vielgerühmter Übersetzung der "Vita" des Florentiner Künstlers der Spätrenaissance und des Manierismus, des Goldschmieds, Bildhauers, Medailleurs, Zeichners etc., des Musikers und Kunstschriftstellers Benvenuto Cellini (1500 - 1571), erschienen in 1000 Exemplaren.- Seine Autobiographie hat Cellini zwischen 1558 und 1567 verfaßt. Selbstbewußt schildert er sein ereignisreiches Leben und Künstlerdasein bis 1562. Das Manuskript hat er nicht vernichtet, wie er anderswo behauptet hat, er hat es wegen der Feindschaft seines früheren Mäzens Cosimo de' Medici auch nicht veröffentlicht, denn dies hätte einen Affront gegenüber dem Hause Medici bedeutet. Erst 1728 ist die erste italienische Ausgabe nach einer (schlechten) Abschrift erschienen, die Goethe neben einer englischen Übersetzung von Th. Nugent (1771) seiner Übertragung zu Grunde legte. Bei der Planung einer dritten Italienreise und der Sammlung von Material zu einer breit angelegten Italienkunde, stieß Goethe 1795 auf Cellinis "Vita" und entschloß sich zu einer Übersetzung. Teile daraus hat er in den "Horen" veröffentlicht, aber erst 1803 ist die vollständige Übersetzung Goethes erschienen, versehen mit einem Anhang "kleiner historischer Aufsätze ... bezüglich auf Sitten, Kunst und Technik" (der Goldschmiedekunst, des Bronzegusses, der Marmorarbeit, bezüglich der ausgeführten Werke und Kunstschriften Cellinis etc.).- Goed.

        Apología de la lengua bascongada o ensayo crítico filosófico de su perfección y antigüedad, sobre todas las que se conocen

      Madrid, por Gerónimo Ortega 1803 - 4º menor (20,6 x 14,2 cm) XXIV-452 p. Pasta española de época, lomo liso, hilos dorados, tejuelo verde. “La obra es una defensa de la antigüedad del vascuence como réplica a las aseveraciones vertidas por Joaquín de Traggia en el Diccionario geográfico histórico de España publicado un año antes, en 1802. En ella Astarloa hace tres categóricas afirmaciones: que el euskera fue la primitiva lengua peninsular, que nació después de la dispersión de lenguas sobrevenida al erigirse la torre de Babel y que fue, por su excelencia, la lengua empleada por el Creador para comunicarse a los hombres del Génesis. Con ello intenta refutar la no menos exaltada impugnación de Traggia: "Las lenguas vecinas, española y francesa, la de los celtas, griegos, romanos, godos y normandos; las modernas castellana y de los francos, unidas a las ruinas de la lengua primitiva, dieron al Vascuence la materia tosca de su lenguaje". Hay que tener en cuenta que Astarloa vive en una época de desatada polémica foral en la que los ataques a la lengua se convierten rápidamente en armas políticas. Modernamente Astarloa ha sido impugnado, sobre todo por sus etimologías descabelladas, sin embargo, como bien dice Urquijo, a él se debe el primer intento detallado de un análisis de la conjugación vasca.” [Bernardo Estornés Lasa Fondoa] Palau, 18774.

        Viaggio del cittadino Carlo Mantegazza milanese a S. Domingo nell'anno 1802.

Dedica a stampa a Francesco Melzi d'Eril, Vicepresidente della Repubblica Italiana. Fioriture usuali, ma buon esemplare in barbe. Prima e unica edizione, rarissima, di questo resoconto, steso in forma di 18 epistole, di un viaggio compiuto dal Mantegazza (Milano, 1750 ca.-1824) a Santo Domingo. L'autore descrive il suo itinerario da Milano alla Francia, attraverso il Moncenisio, e, dopo aver fornito notizie sulla città di partenza del suo viaggio marittimo, Nantes, tratteggia pittorescamente la lunga navigazione, con gli inconvenienti del mal di mare, gli svaghi e i diporti marittimi, i pesci (tra cui orche e balene) e gli uccelli da lui osservati, le tempeste incontrate nell'avventuroso tragitto. L'autore giunge alla Guadalupa e da lì, poi, a Santo Domingo, di cui egli fornisce un resoconto minuziosissimo e traboccante di ogni sorta di informazioni: topografia, storia locale, lo schiavismo e l'insurrezione dei neri, la capitale dell'isola, le "pioggie e rugiade" e la situazione climatica e meteorologica, la coltivazione del riso e i principali prodotti agricoli, l'economia isolana, gli effetti del calore a Santo Domingo, la coltivazione della pianta del caffé e la preparazione della bevanda, la coltivazione della canna da zucchero e i varii impieghi dello zucchero stesso, i mulini da zucchero, "descrizione dell'albero palmo", "selvaggiume di S. Domingo", la fauna locale e l'"uccello mosca", la presenza coloniale francese e l'amministrazione, i creoli, caratteristiche ed etnie della popolazione, loro usi e costumi, "delitto atroce commesso da una Creola bianca", "stato d'abbiezione del Mulatto", "classi d'Europei che abitano a S. Domingo", "sorte degli avventurieri Europei nelle Colonie Americane", le malattie locali, "rapidità con cui l'Europeo è colpito a morte dalla malattia di Siam", le epidemie di febbre gialla, "condotta di Toussaint-Louverture nella rivoluzione di S. Domingo, suo arresto, e successi dell'armata Francese", ecc. Le ultime lettere discorrono della morte di ben 22 compagni di viaggio dell'autore per la "malattia di Siam" e di come l'autore stesso fosse stato vicino a morirne. Sabin, 44397.

        La Scienza della Scherma

      Nella Stamperia del Giornale Italico, Milano 1803 - Signed by both authors opposite the index. Language: Italian. There is a prior owner's name written on the top left corner of the front endpaper, as well as an attached bookplate; there is also a small stamp on the title page; no other owners' marks. The pages are considerably rippled, and there are water-stains and foxing in the margins of several pages, though there is no adhesion or associated odor; p. 345 bears a large tear at the bottom free corner, with some text loss. Binding is relaxed at the hinges, with some stitching exposed, but is otherwise secure. The gilt titles at the spine remain clear and legible, but there is noticeable flaking and rubbing to the leather spine, with a small chip at the spine heel and heavy wear at the corners; the marbled design on the paper hard cover is almost entirely rubbed away, and there is significant wear at the cover edges, otherwise sound. 357 pp. + Index and 10 foldout illustrations. This is the 1803 first edition of the historic treatise on fencing written by Giuseppe Rosaroll Scorza and Pietro Grisetti in defense of the "Scuola Napoletana." It has been signed by both authors. Rosaroll Scorza (1775-1825) was famously made General in the Army of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies and attained a certain celebrity for his patriotism. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Parthenäis oder die Alpenreise. Ein idyllisches Epos in neun Gesängen.

      Orig. udgave. Hamburg u. Mainz: Gottfried Vollmer [1803]. 364 s. Med kobberstukket titelblad af C. Martin og 6 kobbere af C. Schule efter forlæg af Schnor von Carolsfeld og Schubert. Indbundet i smukt samtidigt brunt helskind, permerne med linieforgyldning og med rig rygforgyldning og rødt titelfelt.. Eksemplar på velin.Emnet for denne bog er den alpevandring Baggesen i 1794, sammen med sin hustru og to af hendes veninder, foretog. Arbejdet blev afbrudt af hustruens død, men genoptaget i Schweiz i 1798, hvor han genoptog sin vandring. Titelen "Parthenäis" gælder ikke blot rejsens skueplads, en vandring i egnen om bjerget Jomfruen, men også selskabet: Nordfrank, "Skandinaver af Blod, men Græker i Aanden", som fører for tre jomfruer: Myris (Sophie Haller), Daphne (Gritli Gruber) og Cunthia (Charlotte Wieland). Straks efter sin fremkomst blev digtet anmeldt i det tyske "Algem. Literatur-Zeitung": Goethe, Voss og Baggesen begyndte en digterisk væddekamp. En af de kæmpende (Voss) har allerede af fri vilje rakt Baggesen sejrens Palme; der er ingen grund til at tro, at ikke publikum skulle være ligeså retfærdigt. (Vilh. Andersen). Plesner 109. Bibl.

      Paris: Chez Decombe. [ca. 1803]. Folio. Newly bound in marbled boards with printed paper title label to spine. 1f. (illustrated title designed and engraved by F. Debrot), i-iv (preface), 335, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved thoughout, with four folding plates of musical examples. & & Slightly worn, soiled and browned; some foxing, primarily to margins, heavier to several leaves; lower outer corners of last ca. 50ff. slightly dampstained; previous owner's signature ("Arthur Gaimant") to title. . The third edition (expanded from the first of 1798) of this renowned treatise on playing the violin, Cartier's major work. RISM BVI p. 209 (the two earlier editions). & & The illustrated title, designed and engraved by F. Debret, with text by Lefrançois, is an outstanding example of the art of the decorative music title-page. The elegantly engraved text is within a wide architectural border incorporating emblematic portraits of the famous violinist-composers Corelli, Tartini, Mozart, Stamitz, Gavines and Le Clair. & & "From 1791 to 1821 [Cartier] was assistant leader of the Paris Opéra orchestra. In addition, he was a member of the court orchestra from 1804 to 1830, serving under both Napoleon and the Bourbon regime..."& & "...This imposing volume ["L'art du violon"] contained a comprehensive selection of sonatas and single movements composed by Italian, French and German masters of the 17th and 18th centuries. Cartier included both manuscripts and early editions, and he salvaged a number of masterpieces from oblivion. For example, the volume contained the first publication of Tartini's 'Devil's Trill' Sonata (after a manuscript copy owned by Baillot) and of Bach's Fugue in C major for violin solo (after a copy owned by Gaviniès). Equally important was a reprint of seven sonatas by Nardini, after an edition of 1760 (now lost), and the first complete republication of Tartini's "L'arte del arco," consisting of 50 variations on a gavotte by Corelli. In collecting and publishing all this material, Cartier secured for himself an important place in the history of the violin." Grove online

      Paris: Printed by Crapelet for Deterville,, 1803. ou simple exposition de la manière dont se forment, se distribuent, et se consomment les richesses. 2 volumes, octavo (194 × 120 mm). Contemporary French mottled calf, flat spines decorated gilt in compartments, red and green spine labels. Spines a little faded, head and foot of spines skilfully repaired. First edition of Say's masterpiece, one of the great works of the classical period of economic thought. Though Say ranks with Sismondi and Cournot in the originality of his contributions to economics, his reputation has suffered from his being put down primarily as an exponent of Adam Smith. Schumpeter, who calls his work "the most important of the links in the chain that leads from Cantillon and Turgot to Walras" offers convincing arguments to prove that Say does indeed belong to the French tradition.
