Plato. Taylor, Thomas [translator].
1804. London: Printed for Thomas Taylor, by R. Wilks, Chancery Lane and Sold by E. Jeffery, and R.H. Evans, Pall-Mall, 1804. 4to, 5 vols. (12), [i-iii], iv-cxxiii, [1]-544; (4), [1-3], 4-657, (1, index); (4), [1-3], 4-600; (4), [1-3], 4-614; (4), [1-3], 4-720 pp. Half calf with marbled boards, backstrip gilt, some wear to extremities including some loss of paper from vols. 1 and 2. A handsome set with large margins. Very good. § First edition. Thomas Taylor (1753-1806) was the first to translate and publish the complete works of Plato into English; his Works of Plato, the culmination of a lifetime's study of both philosophy and the Classics, was an obvious landmark for men and women of letters, as it "was through Taylor's translations that the Romantic poets had access to Platonism: they are probably one of the sources of Blake's mythology, as well as his repudiation of the natural science of Bacon and Newton, and his late tempera painting The Arlington Court Picture was almost certainly inspired by Taylor's translation of Porphyry's On the Cave of the Nymphs; there is no doubt that Coleridge's acquaintance with Proclus was assisted by Taylor's translation and commentary, though Coleridge's appreciation of Taylor is invariably laced with acid criticism" (DNB).

HAMILTON, ALEXANDER, et al.
New York: Waite, 1804. FIRST EDITION. Angered by attacks on his administration by Federalist newspapers, Thomas Jefferson decided to use the Sedition Act to restore the integrity of the press. (Jefferson had previously attacked the Adams administration s use of the Sedition Act to silence its enemies.) Jefferson encouraged selective prosecutions, one of which became a landmark in First Amendment history. Harry Croswell s The Wasp accused Jefferson of paying pamphleteer James Callender to charge Washington and Adams with various crimes and to refer to Adams as a hoary-headed incendiary and Washington as a traitor, robber, and perjurer. In Croswell s trial for seditious libel, the judge ruled that the truth was not a defense. Alexander Hamilton s six-hour appellate argument, his last and one of his finest speeches (Appleton), likened the trial to cases brought by the infamous Star Chamber in England. Hamilton argued that freedom of the press consists, in my idea, in publishing the truth, from good motives and for justifiable ends, though it reflect on government, on magistrates, or individuals. Hamilton s approach to liberty of the press was to be adopted in many state constitutions, making it a landmark of American law. This volume contains several other addresses, including a strong argument for truth as a defense by Hamilton s friend William Van Ness, who served as his second in the fatal duel with Aaron Burr later that year. 78 pp. Removed. Very good. [Attributes: First Edition]

N/a
1804. 07 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. The uncommon first edition of the very first biography of George Washington, the first President of the United States. This work was the authoritative history of eighteenth century America until their Civil War. Written by John Marshal, an American politician and lawyer who was closely associated with George Washington's nephew, Associate Justice Bushrod Washington. Washington had inherited his uncle's paper which formed the basis of these volumes. This biography was the first on Washington, and therefore the first on any U. S president. Modern historians have praised the accuracy and levelness of this work. Marshall was the Chief Justice of the United states whose views helped to lay the basis for the American constitutional law and made the Supreme Court a coequal branch of government. He was the longest serving Chief Justice of the United States and largely developed the American legal system. With a frontispiece and two maps to the rear of volume I (plates 1-3 on the engravings list). Folding frontispiece plate (plate number 4. on the engravings list) to volume II. Folding frontispiece plate to volume III and engraved vignette to the rear (plate 5 and 6 on the engravings list.

Paris Renaudière 1804 In-4 (254 x 192 mm), 4 ff. n. ch., 467 pp., 144 ff. blancs, 13 tableaux sur double-page. Basane marbrée, double filet à froid encadrant les plats, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, double filet sur les coupes, tranches jaunes mouchetées de rouge, quelques rares rousseurs, traces anciennes de moisissures sur les trois derniers feuillets imprimés, reliure finement restaurée (reliure de l'époque). Exemplaire sur grand papier réimposé in-4. L'édition originale parut la même année, en 1804, et fut publiée par l'Imprimerie de la République. Les 2 281 articles du Code civil des Français ont été promulgués le 21 mars 1804. Réalisant le juste équilibre entre les principes anciens et les conquêtes révolutionnaires, ils visent à unifier le droit français alors partagé entre le droit écrit et la coutume de Paris (recueil des lois civiles de la vicomté et de la prévôté de Paris codifiés en 1510). Le Code civil fonde les bases de notre droit moderne. Il réglemente la vie civile de tous les français de la naissance à la mort. Il en affirme notamment les libertés individuelles, le "droit absolu" de la propriété, l'égalité dans le système successoral... Il instaure aussi la laïcité dans les domaines relevant jusqu'alors de l'Église, comme le mariage. C'est le grand œuvre de Napoléon : "Ma vrai gloire ce n'est pas d'avoir gagné quarante batailles... ce que rien n'effacera, ce qui vivra éternellement, c'est mon Code civil". Ce monument juridique fera l'objet d'un culte sous l'appellation de "Code Napoléon" dès 1807. Cet exemplaire sur grand papier est … [Click Below for Full Description]

Società CALCOGRAFICA (1799 - 1805)
1804. Questa rarissima carta appartiene ad progetto di atlante, mai portato a compimento, della così denominata Società Calcografica, una semplice operazione commerciale tra i due editori leader del mercato veneto del XVIII secolo, Antonio Zatta e Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. Il termine Società Calcografica viene da noi dedotto dalla carta del mondo presente in questa raccolta, che nel cartiglio in basso reca l'iscrizione in lingua francese "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799". Come detto il progetto non venne mai portato a compimento; nessun atlante contenente queste mappe, con indice e frontespizio, è infatti noto alle bibliografie. E' probabile pertanto che le carte venissero vendute singolarmente o in piccole raccolte personalizzate. Le mappe inserite nella raccolta derivano in parte da lastre di Paolo e Francesco Santini, usate da Remondini nel Atlas Universelle del 1782/4 ed in parte da lastre edite da Antonio Zatta per il Nuovo Atlante pubblicato nel 1796. Le mappe del Santini sono abilmente arricchite, tramite un sistema di piccole lastre mascherate che sono chiaramente visibili sulle mappe per il segno calcografico, da grandi cartigli nel classico stile dello Zatta, incisi dai suoi stretti collaboratori Pasquali, Zuliani e Pitteri. I cartigli spesso contengono le descrizioni storiche, e le mappe furono probabilmente realizzate per illustrare i notevoli cambiamenti geografici che subì la penisola durante il periodo napoleonico. Datate tra il 1795 ed il 1805 sono principalmente dedicate ad illustrare la penisola, sebbene esistano carte di molte regioni euro … [Click Below for Full Description]

TIPO SULTAN.
(No pl.), A. Suntach, 1804.Engraving depicting the capture of the two sons of Tipoo Sultan after Henry Singleton by F. dal Pedro. Ca. 29,5 x 41 cm.Following his defeat in the Third Mysore War (1790-1792) the British made Tipu Sultan cede part of his dominions, pay a substantial financial settlement and surrender two of his 16 sons as hostages. Princes Mohin-ud-din (or Moiz-ud-din) (aged eight) and Abdul Khalik (aged ten) were accordingly delivered to Lord Cornwallis, the Governor-General of India, at Seringapatam on 26 February 1792. In February 1794, after the fulfilment of the treaty, the princes returned to Seringapatam. They enjoyed a few years of peace but the conflict between Mysore and the British resumed in 1799. On 4 May that year Mysore's capital was captured and Tipu Sultan was killed alongside 10,000 of his subjects. The princes were captured by Major-General David Baird, who treated them with great respect and arranged for their safe passage out of the devastated city. After laying their dead father to rest they were then sent to Vellore. In 1806, following a mutiny at Vellore among the soldiers of the Madras Army, the princes were exiled to Calcutta along with the rest of Tipu's family, lest they become a figurehead for opposition to British rule in southern India. - Fine.

NETTO, Johann F. (1756-1810); and F. L. LEHMANN
Georg Voss, Leipzig, 1804. (11 1/8 x 18 1/2 inches). Engraved hand-colored title and 50 engraved plates in two states (25 hand-colored). The color plates on laid paper, the text and uncolored plates on wove paper, as issued. Contemporary linen-backed marbled paper covered boards. Housed in a red morocco backed box. Second enlarged edition of a beautifully-illustrated pattern book on knitting, crocheting, lace making and more. The first edition of his knitting manual was published by Voss in 1800, with only 30 plates (15 plates in two states). In the preface of the present edition the author explains that for this new, improved edition the text has been improved and expanded with additional chapters and an index, and that new plates had been engraved. Netto's work aimed to provide women with a detailed guide to knitting, with instructions for crocheting, bobbin lace-making, filet crocheting, and more. Twenty-four chapters and a supplement contain basic descriptions of stitches, technique, types of yarn, and other highly technical instruction. The engraved plates are present in two states, the uncolored states showing the stitches and intended to be used to transfer the design, and the colored plates the final results. They include a variety of decorative motifs, including letters, numbers, floral and abstract geometric motifs, and patterns for hats, a child's dress, banners, and more. As with many such pattern books from this period, very rare complete with all plates. Berlin-Katalog 1537. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

DAQUIN (Joseph)
Chambéry, de l'imprimerie de P. Cléaz, an XII [1804], in-8, [2]-XXIII-285-[1] pages, broché, couverture d'attente de papier à la cuve rose, Seconde édition, "revue, augmentée et appuyée sur un grand nombre de différentes observations". Elle parut à la lumière des nouveaux travaux, au nombre desquels l'ouvrage fondamental de Philippe Pinel: le Traité médico-philosophique de la folie, publié 10 ans après la première édition de la Philosophie de Daquin. La seconde édition est en conséquence très justement dédiée à Pinel. Exemplaire enrichi d'un envoi non signé de l'auteur : "De la part de l'auteur en signe du plus sincère attachement". Joseph Daquin (1733-1815), grand philanthrope originaire de Chambéry, accepta en 1787, à l'âge de 54 ans, de devenir directeur de la section des aliénés de l'hôpital de sa ville natale. Sa philosophie aborde la question du traitement des maladies mentales en tentant de se débarrasser du "préjugé où l'on est que les fous ne sont plus propres à rien, quand même ils viendroient à recouvrer leur raison" et du "dégoût à les soigner" qu'il y a "presque toujours". Néanmoins, il revient quelque peu sur ses élans altruistes dans la préface de cette seconde édition, comme le souligne Semelaigne: "Il aurait voulu pouvoir propager au loin ses idées humanitaires, cependant, il s'en rendait compte, même autour de lui elles ne rencontraient pas une complète approbation". Impression sur papier azuré. Bon exemplaire, tel que paru. Semelaigne I, p.77 et suiv. Couverture rigide Bon [2]-XXIII-285-[1] pages

Drake De L'imprimerie de la République, à Paris 1804 - An XII, In-8 (14x21cm), broché. Edition originale, et unique édition.Brochure de parution, sous papier gris. Dos muet. Manque en tête et mors supérieur ouvert sur 5 cm. Coins et bordures repliés. Déchirure avec petite atteinte au texte au feuillet N1. Exemplaire non rogné, et non coupé (sauf les 15 premières pages). Méhée de la Touche (1760-1826), espion au service de Bonaparte, monte en 1803 une opération d'infiltration des royalistes en exil à Londres, afin de déjouer une conspiration contre le Premier Consul. Il se fait lui-même passer pour un contre-révolutionnaire poursuivi par la police française et mystifie l'un des meilleurs agents anglais de l'époque, Francis Drake, diplomate à Munich et soutien des royalistes. L'Angleterre, ignorant bien sûr ses véritables intentions, dote Méhée d'une somme de 192 000 livres pour sa contribution au renversement de Bonaparte. Ces mémoires, pour le moins curieux, constituent un passionnant roman d'espionnage « fort piquant » (Biographie des contemporains, Paris, 1824, p. 167), l'auteur racontant en détail comment il s'introduisit dans les milieux officiels, de Berlin à Hambourg, en passant par Strasbourg : « Il me semble, explique-t-il, que mon aventure offre des leçons qui peuvent n'être perdue … [Click Below for Full Description]
