Davies,, 1804. containing Descriptions, Observations, and Comparisons, made and collected in the Course of a Short Residence at the Imperial Palace of Yuen-Min-Yuen, and on a subsequent Journey through the Country from Pekin to Canton. In which it is attempted to appreciate the rank that this extraordinary empire may be considered to hold in the scale of civilized nations. Quarto (262 x 200 mm). Recent half calf, red morocco label, marbled sides, red speckled edges. 8 engraved plates: 5 hand-coloured aquatints by Thomas Medland after William Alexander (including portrait frontispiece of Van-ta-gin, one of the embassy's guide-interpreters), 3 uncoloured plates (2 double-page: Chinese ordnance and musical instruments), illustrations of Chinese characters and musical notation in the text. Frontispiece cropped (with loss of caption), red wax stain on verso (with small puncture), paper flaw in blank margin of O2, scattered foxing or spotting, yet a very good, well-margined First edition of this highly influential work. "Barrow accompanied Lord Macartney's mission to the court of China in 1792 as his private secretary, and the present account of the country, accompanied by a number of fine plates, is one of the best illustrated English travels on China" (Hill). Barrow was the only son of a Lancashire journeyman tanner; "educated at the local… grammar school, which he left at the age of thirteen, Barrow worked successively as a clerk in a Liverpool iron foundry, as a landsman on a Greenland whaler, and as a mathematics teacher in a Greenwich academy preparing young men for a naval career, until offered the position of comptroller of household to Lord Macartney's embassy to China" (ODNB). Subsequently, Barrow accompanied Macartney to the Cape, and in 1798 was made auditor general: "His intention to settle at the Cape was frustrated by its return to the Dutch in 1803. He was offered the second secretaryship of the Admiralty by Dundas in 1804, and this he held … until 28 January 1845". An ardent imperialist, Barrow dedicated himself to the promotion of exploring expeditions - including that of Richard and John Lander to discover the course and outlet of the Niger; the arctic endeavours of John Ross, James Clark Ross and Sir John Franklin; Clapperton and Laing in North Africa; and King, Cunningham and Sturt in Australia - and the improvement of the facilities and administration of the Navy. His accounts of his own experiences in Asia and Africa "established new standards for travel writing" (ibid.). The exclusion of Europeans from China "left [that country] very much terra incognita well into the nineteenth century. Barrow was an excellent observer, and the text contains a number of descriptions of Chinese artefacts and novelties. Among these a plate of musical instruments, extensive renditions of Chinese melodies into western notation, and a long description, with illustration, of the abacus" (Hill). The excellent plates are after drawings by William Alexander, whose The Costume of China appeared in 1805.

        (Lettre sur la campagne romaine).

      (1804). In 4° (cm 23,7 x 19,5), legatura carta colorata ottocentesca con etichetta con la scritta: "Lettre de Chateaubriand". Cc (1) bianca, (16), (4) bianche, di carta vergellata e filigranata "Fabiani" di Genova, alcune pagine rigate a matita, con il testo quasi integrale, vergato in nitida gradevole leggibile grafia ottocentesca, della "Lettre sur la campagne romaine" inviata da Chateaubriand, allora Primo Segretario di Ambasciata presso la Corte romana, il 10 gennaio 1804, all'amico marchese de Fontanes, pubblicata poi il tre marzo 1804 sul "Mercure de France"; opera ricca di suggestione, che dipinge in toni preromantici la desolazione della campagna romana costellata dei resti delle antiche rovine, che ispirò una folla di artisti tra cui Corot iniziatore della pitture "en plein air". La campagna romana era già stata descritta da Montaigne, dal Président de Brosses e da George Sand con analoghi accenti: troviamo la Tomba di Nerone, Villa Borghese, Villa Pamphili, i Monti della Sabina, scorci del Tevere, il confronto con Napoli, e il Vesuvio, Posillipo, Baia, Capo Miseno, Cuma, il lago d'Averno, i Campi Flegrei. Lunga e dettagliata la descrizione del Colosseo, poi della Villa Adriana a Tivoli: le Terme, il Pecile, l'antro della Sibilla, il tempio di Vesta... Altrettanto particolaraggiata la meditazione sulla Villa d'Este, i panorami che si scorgono da essa, la tomba di Scipione l'Africano, il carattere degli italiani. Nel nostro manoscritto, l'anonimo estensore (sicuramente un personaggio dell'entourage dell'A., forse il suo segretario) non ha trascritto il penultimo paragrafo del testo originale, consacrato al resoconto della sepoltura di Vittorio Alfieri e all'epitaffio da lui concepito per la sua donna Luisa Stolberg d'Albany; in effetti, parte relativamente priva di agganci con il resto del discorso, che è armoniosa galleria di scenari dalla bellezza commovente, associata alle reminescenze delle tumultuose vicende di cui quei luoghi furono teatro. Importante e gradevole "copia" coeva, eseguita ed inviata, prima della pubblicazione, ad importantissimo altolocato. La parola data agli eredi ci impedisce di farne il nome ma ci accontentiamo del prestigioso cimelio.

        A Short Account of the Settlement, Produce, and Commerce, of Prince of Wales Island in the Straits of Malacca.

      London, Printed for J. Booth, by J. Barfield, 1804 - FIRST EDITION, (2), (1)-71, (1 blank) pp. 4to, Contemporary brown mottled calf, slightly worn, rebacked, new red letter-piece, marbled edges(3 small blind library stamps),An important source on an early account of Prince of Wales Island (Penang) by Sir George Leith, who was nominated Lieutenant Governor of the island and its dependencies in February 1800, and took charge of the Government on April 20 the following Year.In February 1800 he was appointed Governor of Prince of Wales' Island and invested with the whole civil and military authority and on 20 April he arrived and took charge of the government. The Governor-general in council had selected him for the office of lieutenant-governor from his personal knowledge of Sir George's integrity, prudence and firmness and by his lordship's conviction that the services of Sir George Leith would be eminently useful in securing to the company all advantages to be derived from the important settlements (on Prince of Wales' Island). That year Sir George negotiated a further treaty with the Sultan for the cession of a strip of mainland Kedah which was then renamed Province Wellesley after Richard Wellesley, 1st Marquess Wellesley, the Governor-General of India. He continued to govern till 1803 when he was succeeded by Sir Robert Townsend Farquhar. The Prince of Wales' Island, together with Province Wellesley now formed the Settlement of Penang (the island having been locally known as Pulau Pinang, where in the Malay language "pulau" means "island" and "pinang" is the name of a variety of local palm tree).The Prince of Wales Island was formally taken possession from the the Sultan of Kadah in August 1786 by Francis Light, who was representing the East India Company and he became the First Superintendent. The East India Company required a port within the Straights of Malacca to trade from and replenish ship supplies, also to have a trade route to China as the Dutch had a full monopoly of the area [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ueber den Schädel Kants. Ein Beytrag zu Galls Hirn- und Schädellehre, von Dr. Wilhelm Gottlieb Kelch, Privatlehrer der Medizin und Prosector am anatomischen Theater zu Königsberg.

      Königsberg, bey Friedrich Nicolavius, 1804, kl.-8, VIII, 61, (2) pp., Pappband d.Zt. zarter kleiner Namenszug von 'H.L. Ebel' auf Titel. Seltener Erstdruck!"Kant brauchte nicht um sein Leben zu fürchten, doch nach seinem Tod wurde sein Schädel durch den jungen Königsberger Arzt Wilhelm Gottlieb Kelch nach den Gallschen Maßstäben untersucht. Kant starb am 12. Februar 1804, am 2. April desselben Jahres Unterzeichnete Kelch das Vorwort zu seinem Büchlein.Kelch war sich der Schwierigkeiten seines Vorhabens bewußt und tat auch nicht so, als ob Galls Hirn- und Schädellehre eine unumstößliche Wahrheit wäre. Er betrachtete sie vielmehr als Hülfsmittel zur Ausspähung des Innern des Menschen. Wie faszinierend und gleichzeitig heikel ein solches Unternehmen jedoch gerade wegen des Materialismus-Vorwurfs gegen Gall war, wird an Kelchs einschränkender Bemerkung deutlich, daß es ihm keinesfalls darum ging, das Innere eines Mannes von anerkannt genialischer Größe erforschen zu wollen, welches nur Männern gebührt, die mit ihm in naher Verbindung standen, und in den Geist seiner Schriften eingedrungen sind. Der Craniologe hatte eine schwierige Aufgabe zu bewältigen. Er mochte einen Beitrag zur Hagiographie eines Unsterblichen liefern, indem er die überragenden Fähigkeiten des Betreffenden gleichsam an der Materialität des Schädels bestätigte, er mußte aber unter allen Umständen den Eindruck vermeiden, daß er das philosophische Genie bis in die Einzelheiten der Biographie oder des Werkes hinein am Schädel ablas oder sogar auf diesen zurückführte. Das mochte bei der cranioskopischen Untersuchung eines Geisteskranken oder eines Verbrechers angemessen sein, keinesfalls aber bei genialen Persönlichkeiten. Im besten Fall war es erlaubt, allgemein kursierende Aussagen über bestimmte Lebensumstände anhand des Schädels zu bestätigen.Genau das tat Kelch, und dazu zählte naheliegenderweise auch die Bestätigung von Galls Hinten-Vorne-Unterteilung. Kants Stirn enthielt die meisten Erhabenheiten, während sie am gleichförmig gerundeten Hinterhauptsbeine fast völlig fehlen. Dementsprechend waren verschiedene dem Gedächtnis vorbehaltene Organe, Witz und vergleichender Scharfsinn besonders ausgeprägt. Das Organ des methaphysischen Scharfsinns war mit dem des Sachgedächtnisse verschmolzen, so daß beide eine einheitliche Stirnaufwölbung bildeten. Hingegen war bei den weiter hinten gelegenen Stellen, wo Hochmut, Ruhmsucht und Eitelkeit lokalisiert wurden, nur eine Furche in Kants Schädel zu tasten und auch hinsichtlich des Geschelchtstriebes konnte Kelch Fehlanzeige melden: "Diese Bildung am Schädelgrunde wurde an dem Kantschen Schädel gänzlich vermißt."

Jahrhundert, pp.310-311.Kelch (Wilh. Gottlieb) "zu Königsberg geb. studirte daselbst und zu Göttingen die Arzneywissenschaften, ward Doctor derselben, dann Privatlehrer der Medicin und Prosector des anatomischen Theaters zu Königsberg, 1806 ordentlicher Professor und starb als ein Opfer der Unverdrossenheit in seinem Beruf am 2.

[1804]. 8vo., 17 + (1)pp. A very good copy. First edition, privately printed. Apparently very rare: not in COPAC nor in BL. Not in Bristol City libraries. [bound with], Facts, attending the prosecution of Thomas Swymmer Champneys, Esq. one of the Magistrates of the County of Somerset, for an alleged assault and false imprisonment: preferred by Thomas West: with introductory observations.> Bristol: printed by Joseph Routh, Narrow Wine Street. 1815. 8vo., 33 + (1)pp., probably wanting a half-title, a few leaves lightly stained else a good copy. First edition, privately printed. Apparently very rare: not in COPAC nor in BL. Not in Bristol City libraries. A collection of three rare pamphlets which together illustrate the ups and downs of the Swymmer/Champneys family. Based at Orchardleigh, near Frome, the family's wealth was founded on the slave trade and extensive property holdings in the West Indies. T.S. Champneys was a J.P., a D.L. for the County of Somerset, and, in 1804 at least, Lieutenant Colonel Commandant of the Selwood Forest Legion, Volunteer Cavalry and Infantry. His downfall was completed in the 1820s, by which time he had squandered what was left of the family's fortune, and when he ended up in the insolvent debtors court which declared his the largest amount of debt ever filed in the court since its establishment in 1813, with debts and liabilities upwards of £429,000. The prosecution of Champneys for unpaid debt in 1814/15 vividly illustrates the deteriorating reputation of a once highly regarded Somerset/Bristol family. Thomas Swymmer Champneys (1769-1839) succeeded to the title of 2nd Baronet Champneys of Orchardleigh, Somerset, on the death of his father in July 1821. In 1831 his name was legally changed to Thomas Swymmer Mostyn-Champneys. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A system of etiquette.

      Bath, printed for the author, by W. Meyler. 1804. 12mo., iv + 92 + 89 - 92pp., without advertisement leaves sometimes found, contemporary blind-stamped sheep, a little wear to head and foot of spine, but still a good or very good copy. First edition. This is a charming little book, several times reprinted, by the extraordinary Rev. Dr. John Trusler (1735-1820) who 'published a prodigious range of works on topics as diverse as medicine, farming, history, politeness, law, theology, travel, and gardening'. [Emma Major in ODNB]. Among his other books on conduct and self-help was the popular and practical The way to be rich and respectable, addressed to men of small fortune,> (1775). His System of Etiquette> the author says was his response to a request from a young admirer to publish a handbook 'to guide the novice thro' the intricacies of polite life, to direct him wherein he is to give and take place; how he is to regulate his visits, calls and notes of enquiries; how he is to conduct his correspondence, and how to subscribe himself, and direct to others, illustrated by cases and examples - and a benevolent heart may do much in preventing quarrels, and in regulating, and combating the horrid practice of duelling'.

        Catalogue des Livres rares et précieux, et des Manuscrits, composant la Bibliothèque de M*** ["de Cotte" supplied in a contemporary hand], dont la Vente se fera le Jeudi 22 Germinal (12 Avril 1804) et jours suivans…

      xii, 320, [4] pp. 8vo, cont. polished calf triple gilt fillet round sides, flat spine gilt, blue morocco lettering pieces on spine. Paris: G. De Bure père et fils, 1804. An important sale, containing a large portion of books from the famous De Boze collection. De Boze's library was acquired in 1753 before the scheduled auction jointly by Cotte (1721-1804), Président au Parlement de Paris, and Charles Robert Boutin, Maître des Requêtes, for the sum of 83,000 livres. They, in turn, sold most of the fifteenth-century books, reputedly for 80,000 livres, to Louis-Jean Gaignat, except for the Gutenberg Bible, of which he probably already owned a copy. Cotte and Boutin then divided up among themselves the books they wished to keep, and sold the remainder by auction through Martin in 1754. This was one of the great and most highly anticipated sales of the period which dispersed a very large portion of the legendary De Boze collection formed more than fifty years before. The sale was an enormous success and Didot was a major buyer. Cotte made his first important purchases at Count d'Hoym's sale in 1738. Fine and pretty copy with the four-page schedule of sale at end. 2422 lots plus two further numbered lots and one lot of three dozen skins of red morocco. Pages [308]-320 list another ca. 180 lots of manuscripts. Priced throughout with buyers' names in a contemporary hand. This catalogue is rare. ❧ Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 439-"Les classiques grecs et et latins y dominent.

        Neue Darstellungen aus der Gallschen Gehirn- und Schedellehre, als Erläuterungen zu den vorgedruckten Vertheidigungsschrift des Doktor Gall, eingegeben bey der niederösterreichischen Regierung.

      Mit einer Abhandlung über den Wahnsinn, die Pädagogik und die Physiologie des Gehirns nach der Gallschen Theorie. Hrsg. v. Walther. - München, Scherrerschen Kunst- und Buchhandlung, 1804, 8, XVI, 168 pp., feiner Pappband der Zeit. Erste Auflage. Feines Exemplar a.d. Vorbesitz von P(aul) Vollwiller! "... findet man es sonderbar und ungewöhnlich, daß die schon allgemeinen für höchst wichtig anerkannte Entdeckungen des Dr. Gall, welche für die physiologische Konstruktion der Verrichtungen des Gehirns ganz neue kaum geahndete Ansichten aufschließen, so lange der Leserwelt vorenthalten, und wenigsten von der Seite des Entdeckers selbst nichts hierüber im Publikum verhandelt wurde .... Seit dem Erscheinen der von mir im Jahre 1802 herausgegebenen kritischen Darstellungen der Gallschen anatomisch-physiologischen Untersuchungen des Gehirns und Schedelbaues, Zürich bey Ziegler - hat Herr Gall, wovon ich mich während eines zweyten Aufenthaltes in Wien überzeugte, in seinen Untersuchungen so bedeutende Fortschritte gemacht, und manche neue Ansichten aufgegriffen er ist, um mich so auszudrücken, mit seiner Reflexion auf der durch das anatomische Messer geöffneten Bahn so tief in die Konstruktion des Gehirns selbst eingedrungen, daß neuere Darstellungen aus seiner Theorie durchaus nothwendig wurden, indem sie die vorhergehenden zum Theil aufklären und erweitern, zum Theil den selben ganz neue Richtung geben. Ich finde es sehr passen, dies Darstellungen an die von Gall selbst in seiner Vertheidigungsschrift aufgestellten Reflexionspunkte anzureihen, daß sie mit dieser ein zusammenhängendes Ganzes bilden, als Fortsetzung der kritischen Darstellungen aber, gemeinschaftlich mit derselben die gesammte Literatur der Gallschen Theorie umfassen." Einleitung des Hrsg. WaltherFrühe Würdigung der Franz Joseph Gall'schen (1758-1828) Lehre aus wissenschaftlicher Sicht von dem berühmten Chirurgen und Ophthalmologen Philipp Franz v. Walther (1782-1849). Fortschritte und neue Ansichten Galls ergänzen hier Walthers "Critische Darstellung" von 1802. Nach dem Franz Joseph Gall's Vorlesungen in Wien durch den Kaiser als religionsgefährlich verboten wurden, verließ Gall Wien und bereiste Deutschland, Dänemark u.a. und hielt an zahlreichen Orten Vorlesungen über seine neue Lehre. Mit Galls Verteidigungsschrift (pp.1-50) gegen das von dem Kaiser in Wien erlassene Vorlesungsverbot. Die Zusätze enthalten eine Übersicht von Schriften zu Galls Theorie und auch Kapitel über Psychologie, Vivisektionen etc. "Gall war auf eine Theorie der Hirnfunktion gestoßen, die größte Bedeutung erlangen sollte. Er war ein Pionier kortikaler Lokalisationstheorie, wenn auch auf Grund falscher Überlegungen. Edwin G. Broing faßte den Beitrag der Phrenologie treffend zusammen, als er sagte: "Die Theorie Galls und Spurzheims ist ein Beispiel für eine Theorie, die trotz ihrer Irrtümer geeignet war, weiteres wissenschaftliches Danken anzuregen". Dank der Phrenologie bewegte sich die Vorstellung der geistigen Funktionen "von der Idee der immartiellen cartesianischen Seele weg in Richtung auf eine materielle Theorie der Nervenfunktion. Die Irrtümer der Phrenologie lagen eigentlich nur in Einzelheiten und in dem Fanatismus ihrer Anhänger." E.G. Boring, History of experimental psychology., 2nd.Ed., 1957, pp.57-58

        The Costumes of China [with] The Punishments of China.

      London Bulmer for Miller and McLean 1804 - First edition. Two volumes folio (35.3 x 25.4 cm). title-page in English and French, 60 fine hand-coloured plates; 22 hand-coloured aquatint plates; slight occasional offset of plates onto text leaves. Contemporary red morocco gilt, large gilt centre-piece to covers, a fine set. Beautiful pair of these celebrated books on China, boasting over 80 hand-coloured engravings - finely bound in bright full red morocco gilt, from the renowned collection of royal bibliophile, Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester (1900-1974), son of King George V. The plates were engraved by Dadley after designs by Pu-Qua of Canton. William Miller, the publisher, wrote: "By presenting to the eye a series of judiciously selected and well executed pictorial representations, forming striking portraits of single subjects, accurately finished in the colours of the original, and aided by short descriptive essays, they give more pleasing and definite ideas of the external character, style of dress, and peculiarity of occupation, than can be acquired by any other method, except personal observation." Miller goes on to say that the subjects depicted include members of all classes of society, from public dignitaries to common labourers. Overall these volumes offer not only a superb collection of finely executed aquatints but also an insight into the nations represented for the armchair traveller.

        Spiegel der schoonste courtisanen in hare kleedingen, en veranderingen van deszelfs versierselen naar yders tyt. Gedrukt na de Copye van Parys, 1708.

      Full contemporary vellum. Good copy. (2)+63+(1) pag. On every two pages a description of a courtisane, with a portrait, 29 in total. The portraits of the courtisanes are by a motto, such as: 'Als 't is geschiet; Is 't maar verdriet' or: 'Als 't is ontmaagt; is 't ongevraagt'. With a dedication on Klimene, a The Hague courtisane: 'Wien zal de kunst haar Courtisanen wyden; Dan u, wel eer, bekoorlykse Klimeen? Maar nu verlept, door uw vervloge yden.' On the first free end paper a poem in pencil d.d. 10 Jan 1804 with a simple drawing of a man at the bottom. This book is based on C. de Passe, Spiegel der schoonste courtisanen, Amsterdam, 1631, of which a new edition was made in 1701, similar to the first edition. This 1708 edition, however, differs substantially from the original, with other courtisanes and texts. Not in STCN. See: Leemans, I. 'Spiegel der schoonste courtisanen' in: De Boekenwereld 21 (2005) p. 266-282. This text deals specifically with this copy. B2281

        Manuscript Document Signed ("Louis Bonaparte"), rejecting a request by Inspecteur Norel of Chambéry to be returned to active duty, and with a short Autograph addition (seven words) confirming that Bonaparte had submitted Norel's name for the Légion d'honneur

      Paris, 1804. Signed with a flourish in pen and ink on a manuscript document, with brief addition in Louis Bonaparte's hand. 4to. Old fold, faint marginal soiling, one trace of old paper clip. Fine. Signed with a flourish in pen and ink on a manuscript document, with brief addition in Louis Bonaparte's hand. 4to. Excellent autograph of Louis Bonaparte (1778-1846), brother of Napoleon I, named by him King of Holland in 1806, and the father of Napoleon III. This document informs the recipient that the Emperor has already filled a position and that, accordingly, his request to return to active dury is declined. The blow is sweetened by acknowledging that a request for admission to the Légion d'honneur would be accepted, with a note in Louis Bonaparte's hand "auquel j'a déjà fait la demande".

        Notice sur les Solennités célébrées à Strasbourg, pour le Département du Bas-Rhin, le Jour du Couronnement de Napoléon Premier, Empereur des Français

      - Four hand-colored folding engraved maps & one fine engraving. 11 pp. 4to, cont. crushed green morocco, sides bordered in gilt, spine gilt. [Strasbourg: F.G. Levrault, 1804]. First edition of this rare and handsomely illustrated work. In order to celebrate Napoleon's coronation in 1804, the city of Strasbourg initiated a series of a civil engineering and public works projects. The explanatory text details the planned bridge over the Rhine connecting Strasbourg with Kehl, an orangerie dedicated to Empress Josephine, a canal to protect against flooding and to circumvent a turbulent part of the Rhine, a performance hall, and the extension of a central boulevard. The measurements and purpose of each structure are also noted. The maps are all finely engraved and hand-colored with grey borders. The first map depicts the portion of the river adjacent to Strasbourg and a cross-section of the new bridge to be constructed (with high- and low-water marks shown). The second presents the ornate landscaping which will surround the orangerie, as well as a smaller floorplan. The third shows the location of the new canal. The projected performance hall and prolonged boulevard are shown on the fourth and final map. The final engraving offers a ground-level view of the performance hall. Fine and attractive copy. WorldCat locates no copy in the U.S. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
