        Tavole di ragguaglio fra le nuove e le antiche misure e fra i nuovi e gli antichi pesi della Repubblica Italiana pubblicate per ordine del Governo in esecuzione dell'articolo XIII della legge 27 Ottobre 1803. Anno II.

      Milano, 1803, Anno II. Si vendono dallo Stampatore Nazionale Veladini, e dagli incaricati della vendita del Bollettino delle leggi, al prezzo di L. 12 Milanesi. In folio (cm. 31,6); cartoncino colorato coevo con fascetta di rinforzo al dorso; pp. XVI, 346, (2). Tracce di tarlo al margine bianco superiore all'ultima carta con "errata". Bella copia con barbe stampata su carta pesante. Milano, li 31 Ottobre 1803 anno II, Il Governo proclama Legge della Repubblica il seguente decreto del Corpo Legislativo, ed ordina che sia munito del Sigillo dello Stato, stampato, pubblicato ed eseguito. MELZI Vice Presidente. Il Consigliere Segretario di Stato Luigi VACCARI. I membri della Commissione Pesi e Misure: Barnaba Oriani, Carlo Innocenzo Isimbardi, Paolo Brambilla. Il progetto di stabilire una unità naturale delle misure e dei pesi, che portò alla scelta del metro come unità fondamentale, era stato avviato dall'Académie des Sciences di Parigi negli anni 1784, 1789, e sostenuto dalla proposta presentata da Talleyrand alla Assemblea Nazionale francese nel 1790. Si trattava non solo di unificare le misure all'interno di uno stato, ma di determinare un misura lineare di base per tutte le altre: di superficie, capacità, peso, che fosse anche universale e riproducibile. Alla iniziale proposta di Condorcet di adottare come unità di misura la lunghezza del pendolo che batte il secondo alla latitudine di 45°, la Commissione per i pesi e misure, cui appartennero anche Lagrange, Lavoisier, Laplace e Monge, sostituì quella di una frazione del meridiano terrestre: la decimilionesima parte del quarto di meridiano (1791). Ulteriori semplificazioni e varianti nei nomi si trovano nella nuova legge sui pesi e le misure (n. 83) emanata durante la Repubblica Italiana (27 ottobre 1803), dopo il riassetto dei territori conquistati dalle armate napoleoniche: il braccio diventa metro, le cui dieci, cento, mille parti uguali sono ora rispettivamente: palmi, diti, atomi. Moltiplicando successivamente per cento si passa dal metro quadrato alla tavola e quindi alla tornatura; le analoghe misure di volume si ottengono aggiungendo il termine cubo alla corrispondente misura lineare; le medesime misure di capacità sono usate per i solidi e per i liquidi: la soma, decima parte del metro cubo, divisa successivamente in dieci mine, cento pinte, mille coppi; le unità di peso restano le libbre, suddivise successivamente in once, grossi, denari, grani, e i cui multipli di dieci diventano rubbi, centinaj. Di grande importanza era l'obbligo di insegnare nelle scuole elementari il calcolo decimale e il nuovo sistema. Il processo di adeguamento fu accompagnato dalla pubblicazione di appositi manuali e testi scolastici. Axs

        Le Peintre Graveur

      Imprimerie de J. V. Degen, Pierre Mechetti, Devant Charles, Vienne 1803 - Adam Bartsch (1757–1821) and his Le Peintre Graveur, the giant mouse that would eventually consume the field of print studies. Bartsch’s 20 volumes (issued over fewer than 20 years) constitute one of the most astonishing accomplishments in the history of cataloguing works of art.Bartsch described what he regarded to be, with notorious inconsistency, “original” prints—namely those made by painters, thereby “proper” artists, from the 15th through the 17th century. An accomplishment yet to be fully surpassed in print studies, Le Peintre Graveur remains the most inclusive compilation in the history of any artistic medium—all of it done by hand without the help of photography, not to say a computer. 21 volumes bounded on 18 books ,years of print 1803-1821,all of them are first edition , complete set with all the engravings present some of them are double printed on 2 deferent type of papers , Full leather bound, some volumes have loose front board,some foxing on some pages,but over all a very clean copy and most important , it is a complete copy which is very rare .

        Thaddeus of Warsaw.

      London: Printed by A. Strahan, for T. N. Longman and O. Rees, , 1803. In Four Volumes. 4 volumes, duodecimo (166 x 108 mm). Contemporary half calf, smooth spines divided into compartments by gilt rules, dark blue morocco labels, marbled sides. Housed in a custom blue quarter-calf solander case. With half-titles and final errata leaf in vol. 1. Bookplates of Edward Southwell Trafford. Light rubbing, front joint of vol. 1 tender, offsetting affecting quire K, vol. 3, contents otherwise fresh and clean, an excellent tall copy, preserving a few deckle edges. First edition of Porter's first acknowledged novel, a significant work that "ranks with Mrs Radcliffe's Castles of Athlin and Dunbayne as a super-rarity among Gothic Romantic novels" (Sadleir 1972). The first edition is held by only one of the six legal deposit libraries in the United Kingdom and Ireland (the National Library of Scotland); Copac adds two copies at the University of Birmingham and the National Trust. OCLC records 13 locations in North America, but it is by any standard a notably rare book. ABPC lists no copy of the first edition at auction since 1975; Rare Book Hub notes only two copies offered for sale by Anderson Galleries in 1934 and 1937. Set during the Second Partition of Poland in the 1790s, Thaddeus of Warsaw is one of the earliest examples in English of the historical novel. Porter "crafted and pioneered many of the narrative tools most commonly associated with both the natural tale and the historical novel" (McLean 2007, p. 99). Despite being commercially published, this work did not have a large initial print run. It did, however, become enormously popular and successive editions were rapidly produced. Porter is best-known now for her 1809 novel The Scottish Chiefs, which retells the story of William Wallace, but during her lifetime she was famous primarily as the author of Thaddeus. Both Thaddeus and The Scottish Chiefs predate Walter Scott's Waverley (1814), Thaddeus by over a decade. While Porter's assertion of her direct influence upon Scott is "mostly wish-fulfilment" (ODNB), it is highly probable that Scott knew the work and that they had been briefly acquainted in childhood.

Hays was given a copy of Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman in 1792 and was extremely moved; she contacted the publishers, and arranged a meeting with Wollstonecraft, becoming involved in London's radical Jacobin circles. Hays received advice from Godwin on writing her novels, and she tended Wollstonecraft on her deathbed. In the present work Hays created a significant biographical dictionary of 294 impressive women through the ages. Her novels include Memoirs of Emma Courtney (1796), The Victim of Prejudice (1799), Harry Clinton (1804), and Family Annals (1817).

        LAWS OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE. [bound with:] ACTS PASSED AT THE FIRST SESSION OF THE FIFTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE...

      Knoxville: Printed and published by George Roulstone, 1803. viii,320,[16]; 143,xi pp. Contemporary reverse calf. Spine slightly chipped, boards rubbed, corners lightly worn. Remnants of shelf label and manuscript date on spine. Later ownership inscription on front pastedown and annotation on titlepage. Initial leaves dampstained. Browning and scattered foxing. Final leaf of second work detached and in facsimile (contains only a dozen lines of index). Very good in original condition, untrimmed. In a half morocco box. The first collected laws of the state of Tennessee, and a work of considerable rarity. Allen notes that this was not an official publication of the state, but issued by Roulstone, Tennessee's first printer, as a speculative venture. Because all previous issues of the Tennessee press were either pamphlets, broadsides, or legislative journals, this has been called the first book printed in Tennessee. Allen asserts, however, that Roulstone may have previously bound together some early Legislative Acts printed in Knoxville before 1800. "Possibly it is the first bound book printed in the state. The fact that it was issued bound (increasing the possibility of survival) and the knowledge that Roulstone printed the book as a personal venture should render this book somewhat more likely to be found. Nonetheless, it is virtually never offered for sale today" - Allen. This copy bears the ownership inscription of Edward T. Sanford, a prominent Knoxville lawyer, who served as Assitant Attorney General from 1905 to 1907 and as a Supreme Court Justice from 1923 to 1930. It is also bound with a copy of the acts passed in the first session of the state legislature in the same year, very scarce in and of itself. A primary work of much importance and rarity, with an interesting Tennessee provenance. ALLEN RARITIES 13. ALLEN TENNESSEE IMPRINTS 79, 72. AII (TENNESSEE) 22, 46. McMURTRIE (TENNESSEE) 38, 42.

        POLAND / LITHUANIA / LATVIA / BELARUS

      Üsküdar (Istanbul): Imperial Military Engineering School Press, . 1803 - Copper engraving with original full wash colour (Good, fine original colour, some worm holes with minor loss near both head and tail of centerfold, tight upper and lower margins as issued, blank margins contemporarily extended on all sides), neatline: 52.5 x 58 cm (20.5 x 23 inches); extended margins: 58 x 71.5 cm (23 x 28 inches). Extremely rare – the first map of Poland and Lithuania to have been printed in the Islamic world, published in Istanbul in 1803 by the Ottoman Military Engineering School Press, from Mahmud Raif Efendi’s revolutionary ‘Cedid Atlas’. This extraordinary map is the first map of Poland and Lithuania to have been printed in the Islamic World, and was issued within Mahmud Raif Efendi’s Cedid Atlas Tercümesi [A Translation of a New Atlas], the first Muslim-published world atlas based on European geographic knowledge and cartographic methods, published in Üsküdar, Istanbul in 1803 by the Imperial Military Engineering School Press. The atlas was issued in an exceedingly small print run expressly for use in elite Ottoman circles, ensuring that the present map is today extremely rare. The map embraces all of today’s Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and much of Belarus. The text and toponymy are entirely in Ottoman Turkish script, which dances elegantly across the composition. The scene showcases the political reality that existed between 1795 and 1807, after the ‘Three Partitions of Poland’, but before the revisions of the Treaty of Tilsit (1807). During this period, Poland ceased to be an independent state, its territory having been carved up and occupied by neighbouring powers, in stages, in 1772, 1793 and 1795. As shown here, the Polish lands taken by Prussia are bathed in a light blue wash; the territories occupied by Hapsburg Austria are coloured in green; while the lands consumed by Russia are coloured yellow. The map is finely detailed, depicting all major cities, towns, rivers and mountain ranges. The insets, in the lower left corner, feature a city plan of Warsaw, flanked by text, which explains the dismemberment of Poland, as well as providing statistics as to the land area and populations of the different partition sectors. The map is based upon one of the era’s finest European map of Poland, William Faden’s A Map of the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania including Samogitia and Curland divided according to their dismemberments with the Kingdom of Prussia (London, 1799). Faden, in turn, based his geography on Giovanni Rizzi-Zanonni’s famous 1772 wall map of Poland. The Enlightenment in Ottoman Turkey & the ‘Cedid Atlas’ - The Ottoman Empire was for centuries one of the greatest cultural and intellectual civilizations of Europe, Asia and Africa. While it maintained significant social and academic exchange with Western Europe, through most of the 18th Century, Ottoman Turkey followed its own course, and was not swept up by the revolutionary changes of the European Enlightenment. The Ottoman elite was highly conservative by nature and often struck down proposals for Western-style reforms and technological innovations. Of great relevance to our story was the magnificent, yet brief, ‘false start’ of Islamic printing in the Ottoman Empire. Traditionally, while certain minority groups, such as Jews and Armenians, had quietly printed works in the Ottoman Empire for their own use, printing was generally banned. However, in 1729, Ibrahim Müteferrika, an esteemed intellectual and court official of Hungarian origin, was permitted to set up his own press, issuing the first-ever printed works in the Islamic world. Significantly, Müteferrika published the first maps in the Muslim world, within his printing of Katip Çelebi’s 1648 manuscript, Cihannuma [Universal Geography] (Istanbul, 1732). While these maps were both pioneering and beautiful, they were of a small scale, and the Cihannuma was not an atlas, but rather a pedagogical text. Unfortunately, Müteferrika’s publishing activities offended the Ottoma

        Richard Stockton, Jr.

      Nov. 27, 1803. The letter measuring 9.5 x 7.75 is inlaid onto a larger piece of paper measuring 13.5 x 9.75 was written and signed by Richard Stockton, Jr., son of Declaration Signer, Richard Stockton. It is dated Nov. 27, 1803 from Princeton. In part, the letter reads, <I>"Dear Sir, I have received your kind favor of the 17th inst. with its enclosures - for which and their attentions of the like nature you are entitled to my best acknowledgements . . . From the first moment this amendment was proposed, I was directly against it, and when it was adopted by the Federal Party in the hope of representations and sent up to the senate in the year 1790 . . . all in my power to, and I believe was instrumental in causing its . . . in that body. But the day of reasoning on the true principles of the constitution is over - the most important articles of your national compact must be constantly called on to guild party and earn personal views - The degradation of the Federal Judiciary by its being now completely placed at the feet of the legislative body only to get rid of obnoxious judges has taught us what we are to expect on subordinate points - In truth I give up this constitution as gone - its death will be lingering - but its sentence has passed - It was only calculated to the administrations by the same kind of men as those who formed it - it proposes nothing which can essentially guard it against the progress of democracy - but perhaps will ultimately be found only to have organized democracy - and given plan and system to it which it never has had in any other country- This will probably prolong the reign of the Demon - will give it a . . . which it has had in no other nation - and in the end . . . find little bit of much boasted of Constitution - it will be dissected limb by limb with as much indifference as it felt by a surgeon in cutting up a dead body. I altogether despair of Mr. Condat acting the enlightened heart you seem to take from him - and as to any of the States at present under Democratic Sway into passing . . . form no idea of - the proposed wagon given by Mr. Ketchel in our House of Assembly for an adjourned session was that they might be ready to . . . and act on the proposition . . . Your obliged servant Rd. Stockton."</I> The letter could be in regards to the twelfth amendment that was passed in December of 1803. The twelfth amendment pertains to the Presidential elections. Thomas Jefferson was President at the time.
