        Theory of Moral Sentiments

      1804. SMITH, Adam. The Theory of Moral Sentiments… To Which Is Added, A Dissertation on the Origin of Languages. London: Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies in the Strand; and W. Creech, and Bell and Bradfute, Edinburgh, 1804. Octavo, contemporary full polished brown calf gilt rebacked, marbled endpapers and edges. $3800.1804 edition of Smith’s pioneering first book, a work which he himself ranked above Wealth of Nations and which served as its foundation, both works demonstrating “a greater unifying principle…Smith’s ethics and his economics are integrated by the same principle of self-command, or self-reliance, which manifests itself in economics in laissez faire” (Spiegel), scarce in contemporary calf boards.The Theory of Moral Sentiments laid the foundation on which The Wealth of Nations was later to be built and proposed the theory which would be repeated in the later work: that self-seeking men are often ""led by an invisible hand… without knowing it, without intending it, to advance the interest of the society."" ""The fruit of his Glasgow years… The Theory of Moral Sentiments would be enough to assure the author a respected place among Scottish moral philosophers, and Smith himself ranked it above the Wealth of Nations… Its central idea is the concept, closely related to conscience, of the impartial spectator who helps man to distinguish right from wrong. For the same purpose, Immanuel Kant invented the categorical imperative and Sigmund Freud the superego…"" (Niehans, 62). With the Moral Sentiments and Wealth of Nations Smith aimed to compose ""not merely a treatise on moral philosophy and a treatise on economics, but a complete moral and political philosophy, in which the two elements of history and theory were to be closely conjoined"" (Palgrave III:412-13). ""Smith's ethics and his economics are integrated by the same principle of self-command, or self-reliance, which manifests itself in economics in laissez faire"" (Spiegel, 231). First published in 1759; ""Tenth Edition"" stated on title pages. With half titles. See Kress 5815; Goldsmith 9537; ESTC T141578. Early owner signature (I).Text fresh with only light scattered foxing. A handsome near-fine copy, most difficult to find in any early edition.

        LA MINERVE, Vaisseau Aerien Destine aux Decouvertes, et propose a toutes les Academies de l'Europe; par le Physicien Robertson, Ci-devant Professeur a l'Ecole centrale du departement de l'Ourte, de la Societe Galvanique,

      Vienna, SV Degen, 1804 and Paris Hocquet, 1820.. de celle d'Emulation de Liege, et de celle pour l'Encouragement des Sciences et Arts de Hambourg. SECOND EDITION, revue et corrigee, 1820. French text, 8vo, approximately 190 x 125 mm, 7½ x 5 inches, woodcut title vignette, 4 woodcut illustrations printed on 3 pages, 1 large folding plate of the Minerve, plus at the end 1 EXTRA folding plate (probably a facsimile) of a fantasy flying machine which seems to come from an Italian work, pages: 36, (4), bound in modern half calf over cloth sides, raised bands and gilt decoration to spine, contrasting gilt lettered labels, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Corners and hinges very slightly rubbed, small blemish to upper hinge, front inner paper hinge cracked, 2 very small repairs to edge of front endpaper, slightly foxed throughout, mostly light, the folding plate is faintly foxed at the edges, there is a small light stain at the top outer corner, a tiny piece missing from the lower corner and a very short closed edge tear at the inner edge (repaired on reverse), the unnumbered illustrated pages at the end are very faintly foxed at the edges, otherwise a very good copy. Étienne-Gaspard Robert (1763-1837) was a famous Belgian stage magician pioneering projection techniques for phantasmagoria shows, at the same time pursuing an academic career as professor of physics at Liege, specialising in optics. He also had vast experience with balloons - he was Commandant des Aerostiers during the war, serving under General Jourdain in Belgium and Holland in 1803/4, providing valuable observations on the enemy troops and movements from tethered and untethered balloon observing stations; he is also regarded by some as the inventor of the parachute. There was nothing about the balloon described in this pamphlet that would have worked, and Robertson knew it, intending his work to be more of caricature of existing attempts in flight than as a science fiction creation. The balloon was to have been one of the biggest ever designed with a 150 foot diameter for a load of 161,000 lbs including 60 scientists, plus some ladies who have their own quarters, and it was to be fitted out with a library, church, exercise area, chemistry laboratory, music room, food and wine storage, kitchen, the only place where a fire is allowed, etc. It is also provided with a small ship underneath for sea landings. The first edition which is extremely scarce was first published in Vienne, France in 1804. This is mentioned on the title page and see Tissandier, Bibliographie Aeronautique page 33.

Sir John Carr (1772-1832) was an English barrister, illustrator, poet and traveller. ''He was called to the bar at the Middle Temple, but from reasons of health found it advisable to travel, and published accounts of his journeys in different European countries, which though without much intrinsic merit, obtained a wide circulation on account of their light, gossipy style, and the fact that in the species of literature there was then comparatively little competition'' (DNB). He started his travels to the north of Europe in 1804 and describes the different cities he visited and the people he meets, with remarks on their hospitality and their eating habits, describing, for example, "a Swedish meal".From the library of the Swedish bibliophile and collector Gustaf Bernström (1877-1966).

Giovanni-Batista Balbis, physician and botanist, was a pupil of Carlo Allioni, and succeeded him as professor of botany and director of the botanical garden at Turin. When the latter published his Flora Pedemontana, which contained descriptions of more than two thousand species of plants, there were some inevitable omissions. Allioni and some of his pupils, including Balbis, made additions to the Flora Pedemontana. Several of these additions were published in the editions of Catalogus plantarum Horti Botanici Taurinensis appearing from 1804 to 1814, when Balbis was dismissed from his position because he served the French during the Napoleonic occupation.With a manuscript annotation on title-page "Donné par M. Balbis", an unobtrusive stamp of Société Linnéenne de Lyon on page 11 and another stamp, lower right corner cut off of title-page. Boards rubbed, spine tattered. Good copy.

        The Shipwreck, A Poem... The text illustrated by additional notes, and corrected from the first and second editions, with a Life of the Author, by James Stanier Clarke..

      London: Printed for William Miller... by T. Bensley, 1804. Overall in fine condition, though there is some mild foxing of plates due to paper type: binding just a little worn consistent with age.. Large octavo, with three steel-engraved plates and five finely engraved vignettes; a very large copy with wide margins in a splendid straight-grained red morocco binding (attributed to Edwards of Halifax) with elegant neoclassical gilt tooling. A splendid copy: an early hand has noted in ink "Largest Paper" at the start, probably indicating a special issue of this edition of William Falconer's celebrated masterpiece. This superb copy is in a splendid contemporary binding that the book's previous owner, the collector John Hely-Hutchinson, attributed to the famous Edwards of Halifax. Significantly, this copy was at an earlier time in the library of the bibliophile Frances Richardson Currer, and has her bookplate. Crowned the 'head of all female book collectors in Europe' by Thomas Dibdin, Currer's estate at Eshton Hall near Skipton was close to the workshop of Edwards of Halifax and certainly this splendid binding has his characteristic skill and finesse.Originally published in 1762, The Shipwreck is a poem in three cantos chronicling the voyage of the Britannia from Alexandria to Venice and its shipwreck near Cape Colonna on the Greek coast. Falconer was a professional mariner who successfully combined a working knowledge of the sea within the tradition of romantic poetry. There is a generous appendix explaining the operation of a sailing vessel during a violent storm. One poignant reason for the popularity of Falconer's book was that he was himself lost at sea when the Aurora was shipwrecked after leaving the Cape of Good Hope in 1769.Falconer's nautical knowledge is evident in his detailed footnotes explaining terms employed in the poem and also in his Marine Dictionary published in 1769. This edition also contains a biography of Falconer by James Stanier Clarke, fellow of the Royal Society and popular maritime writer. The fine and detailed illustrations, both plates and vignettes, are after drawings (now in the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich) by Nicholas Pocock, the leading British maritime painter at the turn of the century. Provenance: Private collection (Sydney).

        Neue Himelsbeschreibung oder Sehr leichte Methode die Sternbilder durch die äussere Gestalt der vornehmsten Sterne unter denselben kenen zu lernen; New Description of Heaven

      Augsburg: Walchschen Kunstverlag, 1804. unbound. Copper plate engraving with original hand color. Sheet measure 22.5" x 27" This incredible 1804 celestial map by Johann Walch depicts the stars and constellations of the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere in beautiful detail. The chart also includes the equator, ecliptic and date settings. Below the two hemispheres, a tabular representation of the stars in the night sky is also featured. The chart is centered on a poem by Albrecht von Haller roughly translates to "Choice to go deep in the air, and the vast sky was alive when walking, running to meet standards in all our stars. Who knows: the stars are perhaps a seat of the ghosts, as the vicious one rules here, there is the virtue master". The map is in good condition with minor wear along original centerfold and foxing. Minor verso repairs along edges and near bottom margin. Johann Walch, born in Germany in 1757, was a printer, painter, draftsman, engraver, cartographer and publisher. This is a beautiful example of his work.

He graduated from the University of Edinburgh Medical School with an MD in 1825 later returning the practice in Dublin at Meath Hospital. he went on to create two important works on cardiac and pulmonary diseases A Treatise on the Diagnosis and Treatment of Diseases of the Chest (1837) and The Diseases of the Heart and Aorta (1854) as well as one of the first treatises on the use of the stethoscope. He emphasised the importance of clinical examination in forming diagnoses, and of ward-based learning for students of medicine. Both CheyneStokes breathing (the alternation of apnoea with tachypnoea) and StokesAdams syndrome are named after him. Stokes' sign is a severe throbbing in the abdomen, at the right of the umbilicus, in acute enteritis. Stokes law is that a muscle situated above an inflamed membrane is often affected with paralysis. In 1858 he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. In June 1861 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society as: "The Author of A work on the Diseases of the Lungs, and of a work on the Diseases of the Heart and Aorta and of other contributions to Pathological Science. Eminent as a Physician". He was elected President of the Royal Irish Academy for 187476. His son, Whitley Stokes, was a notable lawyer and Celtic scholar, his daughter Margaret Stokes an archaeologist and writer. (Wikipedia)

According to research [Cleevely, Nelson and Oliver, 2003] the work was first published in 6 volumes (with 50 plates and descriptions per volume) the first 4 being published in the years 1805-1807, but the remaining 2 published later: V not before 1816 and VI in late 1828. Complete sets are the exception! This set is in contemporary half leather bindings with marbled boards. The spines have gilt lining and title and volume labels. Contents: Vol I: hand coloured title page; plain title page to vol I dated 1804; dissertation 2pp; mode of culture 2pp; introduction 2pp; 82 plates with accompanying text. Vol II: title page Vol II 1804; Dissertation continued; 84 plates with accompanying text plus text for E. discolor. Vol III: title page Vol III dated 1806; dissertation concluded 1p; plate for E.discolor and 85 further plates with text. The work is therefore lacking 48 plates and descriptions, 3 title pages and the index. The bindings are clean with wear to the leather, particularly at the top and bottom of the spines and to the spine joints. Each volume has 'Stouthall' hand written on the front pastedown, and 2 volumes have the bookplate of R Wilbraham Falconer. Contents are generally very clean with the occasional spot or mark. The plates are beautifully coloured. Each plate is hand numbered but sadly the numbering starts anew in each volume so does not help with collation. There is the odd outbreak of spotting eg title page to Vol II and a few text pages have browning eg those opposite plates 56. 62, 68 and 73 in the 3rd volume. Please enquire if you would like us to check for particular specimens, or you would like more images.

      - Pritzel 364; Stafleu & Cowan 20051 (cf. 277 ); WorldCat (6 copies); not in Cat. Lindley Libr. Rare catalogue of medical plants in the botanical garden of Turin. Giovanni-Batista Balbis, physician and botanist, was a pupil of Carlo Allioni, and succeeded him as professor of botany and director of the botanical garden at Turin. When the latter published his Flora Pedemontana, which contained descriptions of more than two thousand species of plants, there were some inevitable omissions. Allioni and some of his pupils, including Balbis, made additions to the Flora Pedemontana. Several of these additions were published in the editions of Catalogus plantarum Horti Botanici Taurinensis appearing from 1804 to 1814, when Balbis was dismissed from his position because he served the French during the Napoleonic occupation.With a manuscript annotation on title-page "Donné par M. Balbis", an unobtrusive stamp of Société Linnéenne de Lyon on page 11 and another stamp, lower right corner cut off of title-page. Boards rubbed, spine tattered. Good copy.

        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.

        Three Tracts on the Syntax and Pronunciation of the Hebrew Tongue; With an appendix addressed to the Hebrew nation.

      London: by W. Calvert for Vernor and Hood, F. and C. Rivington, J. White, J. Hatchard, W. Dwyer, and L. Pennington, at Durham, 1804 - Octavo (187 × 110 mm). Uncut in original boards, white paper backstrip, manuscript title to spine. Spine slightly rolled and chipped, a few small markings to covers. An excellent, entirely unsophisticated copy. With the individual title pages and half-titles for each tract, the register continuous except for the appendix. First and only edition. Sharp (1735–1813) is best remembered as one of the first abolitionists; Thomas Clarkson identified him as the founder of the movement. He was also an esteemed amateur linguist and theologian, having taught himself Hebrew and Greek while apprenticed to a London linen-draper in order to debate with two of his fellow apprentices, one of whom was Jewish, the other a member of the Unitarian Socinian sect, which denied the divinity of Christ. His Remarks on the Uses of the Definitive Article in the Greek Text of the New Testament (1798; 3rd edn, 1803) "argued strongly for the divinity of Christ and struck a blow against the Socinian position" (ibid.) "Dr Henry Lloyd, Regius Professor of Hebrew at Cambridge, lauded Sharp for his insights into the pronunciation of Hebrew, as did Bishop Horsley on Sharp's new insights on Hebrew syntax A refrain seen in many reviews was that Sharp's treatment was the finest in print, the ablest defence of a view, a great insight that would stand the test of time" (Wallace, Granville Sharp's Canon and its Kin, p. 47).
