        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

      London: Printed by and for C. and R. Baldwin, 1803.. Two volumes. [32],xxiv,460;[4],583,[1]pp. Octavo. Handsome recent half calf and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt labels.

First edition of this relatively early work by the prolific journalist, editor and miscellaneous writer (c. 1777 - 1819). While one would naturally assume a work such as this would be accompanied by a map, the prefatory advertisement notes that the deterioration of relations between France and England resulted in the maps intended to be included being impounded at Calais.

        Traité d'économie politique,

      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.

        A Group of Carnations

      Robert James Thornton, 1803. unbound. Mezzotint, aquatint, and stipple engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 19.5" x 13.75". This lovely print of a group of six carnations in different colors and patterns sets them against a river landscape. A classical-style temple to the right side suggests the Mediterranean region to which it is native. The delicate colors of blue, pink, and orange on the flowers are due to the intaglio method of printing, which combined mezzotint, aquatint, line, and stipple engraving, finished with watercolor. This second state of the image appeared in Robert James Thornton's elephant folio edition of "The Temple of Flora." This collection of 32 large-scale floral prints, while considered a masterpiece today, was ridiculed in its time for its lavishness in comparison to typically more austere botanical imagery. Since then, however, it has become one of the most admired illustrated botanical set ever published in Britain. The print is in good condition, with slight browning on the edges of the margins not affecting the image. Dr. Robert John Thornton (1768-1837) was an English physician and botanical writer. A specialist in medical botany, Thornton dedicated the later part of his life to publishing collections of floral plates. "The Temple of Flora" was the final and most ambitious volume of "A New Illustration of the Sexual System of Carolus Von Linnæus," which Thornton commissioned and compiled between 1797 and 1807. This print is a lovely example of his work.

        De la richesse commerciale,

      Geneva Chez J.J. Paschoud 1803 - "The First Critic of Industrial Capitalism" SISMONDI, J[ean] C[harles] L[eonard Simonde de]. De la richesse commerciale, ou Principes d’économie politique, appliqués a la législation du commerce. Geneva: Chez J.J. Paschoud, An XI (1803). Scarce first edition of Sismondi’s important work. Two octavo volumes. [4], lxxxv, [1, blank], 348; [4], 448 pp. In the original blue paper wrappers with printed paper spine labels (labels defective). Library shelf label at foot of spine. Joints split but firm. A very clean and fresh copy. Uncut and largely unopened. Housed in a red cloth clamshell case. Born in Geneva, the son of a Calvinist clergyman, Sismondi (1773-1842) was "the first critic of industrial capitalism" (Blaug). "Sismondi’s first venture into economics, the two- volume De la richesse commerciale was intended as a systematic exposition of the ideas of Adam Smith. Yet in it Sismondi also pointed out that he was presenting ‘an absolutely new’ way of looking at aggregate output changes. Crude arithmetic examples depicted output during a given year as a function of investment during a previous year, and showed how a closed economy differed from an economy with international trade, and how the latter differed when there was an export surplus and an import surplus. Algebraic formulas in his footnotes repeated the same arguments presented arithmetically in the text. But the book was little noticed, and so Sismondi’s original efforts produced no contribution to the development of economics" (The New Palgrave). De la Richesse commerciale "has a number of original features, for example, it includes an early statement ascribing the international exchange of goods to differences in factor endowments and factor prices—England, being plentifully endowed with capital, will import labor-intensive goods, such as lace from France, from countries where capital is relatively scarce and wages low. Sismondi here points the way to doctrinal developments that were bought to full fruition by Ohlin in the twentieth century but were overshadowed during the nineteenth century by the Ricardian doctrine of comparative cost, which was primarily designed to demonstrate the gains from trade" (Spiegel, p. 303). Theocaris describes Sismondi as the only French author of his time who was considerably influenced by Canard, noting that in the introduction to De la richesse commerciale Sismondi "admitted that many times in the earlier chapters of his book he had nothing better to do than repeat Canard’s ideas. He does not, however, imitate Canard in the use of mathematics except once, ‘car appliquer ce langage à une science qui n'est point exacte c'est s'exposer à des erreurs continuelles’. His main attempt at mathematical economics is when he tries to show that in both a closed economy and with foreign trade a country, ceteris paribus, will be progressing, declining or stationary according to the level of wages" (Early Developments in Mathematical Economics (1983), pp. 78ff).

      Paris: Didot, 1803 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (203x123 mm). 2 volumes, viii, 543 pp.; 555 [1] pp., including half titles. Old library stamps to half titles. Contemporary half leather over marbled boards, spine gilt (hinges repaired), some browning and spotting to pages, marbled endpapers. ---- <br><br> Norman 221 - FIRST EDITION. Trained as a physician, the French chemist Berthollet attempted to provide a proper basis for chemistry, so that its experimental results could be viewed in the light of theoretical first principles. In his attempt to provide chemistry with an adequate theoretical foundation, Berthollet recognized the importance of the theory of affinity. According to the Essai, there were two main types of force in nature: gravitation, which accounted for astronomical phenomena, and chemical affinity. He proved that Chemical affinity was relative, varying with the physical conditions accompanying a chemical experiment: quantity, temperature, solubility, pressure, and physical state. Berthollet &#39;introduced the highly important concept of &#39;chemical mass&#39;-relative affinity combined with the mass of reactants in a chemical combination-to give the total force with which a given quantity of a substance reacted with another&#39; (Norman)..

        Geschichte des Galvanismus. Nach Sue d. A. frey bearbeitet nebst Zusätzen und einer Abhandlung über die Anwendung des Galvanismus in der praktischen Heilkunde von Joh. Christ. Leop. Reinhold.

      2 Tle. in 1 Bd. 2 gefaltete Kupfertafeln, XII, 227 S. - (1 Bl.), 229-328, 176 S., (1 Bl.). Halblederband der Zeit mit Rückenschild (Vordergelenk restauriert). 2 Tle. in 1 Bd. Sehr seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe. - Vgl. Wheeler/Gift I, 630 und Roller/Goodman II, 474 (beide französ. Original-Ausgabe). - Das Werk bildet eine Umarbeitung für deutsche Naturforscher, da die Original-Ausgabe lediglich bloße Materialien zu einer Geschichte des Galvanismus enthielt und unter diesem Titel dem Bearbeiter Reinhold zufolge gar nicht hätte erscheinen dürfen. Die Gründe dafür waren größtenteils unvollständig abgedruckte französische Original-Abhandlungen, mangelnde Vertrautheit des Verfassers mit dem Galvanismus, Zusammenstellung der Abhandlungen ohne jeden wissenschaftlichen oder chronologischen Plan. "Statt der weggelassenen Aufsätze bereicherte ich meine Schrift mit andern ausländischen Gelehrten. Zwar finden sich unter diesen einige, die von Volta z. B., welche gewiß alle Physiker kennen; doch sind diese zu wichtige Materialien für die Geschichte des Galvanismus, als daß ich nicht jedem Tadel zu entgehen hoffen dürfte, wenn ich sie, die bis jetzt doch nur zerstreut sich finden, in einer der Sammlung dieser Materialien gewidmeten Schrift zusammenstellte. Endlich habe ich, um einige Ordnung in das Ganze zu bringen, diese Schrift in drey Abschnitte getheilt, von welchen der erste den einfachen, der zweyte den verstärkten, der dritte den auf Heilkunde angewendeten Galvanismus enthält. In jedem habe ich die einzelnen Aufsätze, so viel als möglich, in chronologischer Ordnung aufgeführt" (Vorrede). - Zu Beginn etwas, sonst nur vereinzelt leicht stockfleckig.
