        The Works of Joseph Butler, LL. D., Late Lord Bishop of Durham. To Which is Prefixed a Life of the Author By Dr. Kippis; with a Preface, Giving Some Account of His Character and Writings, By Samuel Halifax. In Two Volumes

      Edinburgh: James Ballantyne / Archibald Constable and Co. And William Whyte, 1804. First Edition. Full Calf. Very Good +. 8 3/4" + Tall. Frontispiece By Hopwood. Two Volumes. Frontispiece By Hopwood, Published By W White And Dated April 1805 (!), Title, Section Title, Vii-Lxxivi, Errata, 372; Half Title, Title, Section Title, I-V,488. Apparently Original Full Calf, 5 Bands, Morocco Spine Labels, Gilt Volume Number And Gilt Devices In Four Other Compartments, Tooled Borders On Covers, Tooled Edges. Some Wear, Joints Beginning To Crack, But Quite Solid And Attractive, Very Well Preserved, Very Good +. Bookplates Of "George Rooke / Coll. Mert. Soc./1822", And Similar Pencil Inscriptions In Each Volume, The Longer Reading "G. Rooke E Coll. Mert. From My (----) Mr. Lightfoot". George Rooke Was A Student At Merton And Later Honorary Canon Of Durham. Joseph Barber Lightfoot (1828-) Was An English Theologian And Bishop Of Durham, Usually Known As J.B. Lightfoot. From 1854 To 1859 He Edited The Journal Of Classical And Sacred Philology. In 1857 He Became Tutor And His Fame As A Scholar Grew. He Was Made Hulsean Professor In 1861, And Shortly Afterwards Chaplain To The Prince Consort And Honorary Chaplain In Ordinary To Queen Victoria. In 1866 He Was Whitehall Preacher, And In 1871 He Became Canon Of St Paul's Cathedral. His Sermons Were Not Remarkable For Eloquence, But A Certain Solidity And Balance Of Judgment, An Absence Of Partisanship, A Sobriety Of Expression Combined With Clearness And Force Of Diction, Attracted Hearers And Inspired Them With Confidence. "His Personal Character Carried Immense Weight, But His Great Position Depended Still More On The Universally Recognized Fact That His Belief In Christian Truth And His Defense Of It Were Supported By Learning As Solid And Comprehensive As Could Be Found Anywhere In Europe, And By A Temper Not Only Of The Utmost Candor But Of The Highest Scientific Capacity. The Days In Which His University Influence Was Asserted Were A Time Of Much Shaking Of Old Beliefs. The Disintegrating Speculations Of An Influential School Of Criticism In Germany Were Making Their Way Among English Men Of Culture Just About The Time, As Is Usually The Case, When The Tide Was Turning Against Them In Their Own Country. The Peculiar Service Which Was Rendered At This Juncture By The 'Cambridge School' Was That, Instead Of Opposing A Mere Dogmatic Opposition To The Tübingen Critics, They Met Them Frankly On Their Own Ground; And Instead Of Arguing That Their Conclusions Ought Not To Be And Could Not Be True, They Simply Proved That Their Facts And Their Premises Were Wrong. It Was A Characteristic Of Equal Importance That Dr Lightfoot, Like Dr Westcott, Never Discussed These Subjects In The Mere Spirit Of Controversy. It Was Always Patent That What He Was Chiefly Concerned With Was The Substance And The Life Of Christian Truth, And That His Whole Energies Were Employed In This Inquiry Because His Whole Heart Was Engaged In The Truths And Facts Which Were At Stake. He Was Not Diverted By Controversy To Side-Issues; And His Labor Was Devoted To The Positive Elucidation Of The Sacred Documents In Which The Christian Truth Is Enshrined." In 1874, The Anonymous Publication Of Walter Richard Cassels' Supernatural Religion Created Considerable Sensation. In A Series Of Papers In The Contemporary Review, Between December 1874 And May 1877, Lightfoot Undertook The Defense Of The New Testament Canon. The Articles Were Published In Collected Form In 1889. About The Same Time He Was Engaged In Contributions To W Smith's Dictionary Of Christian Biography And Dictionary Of The Bible, And He Also Joined The Committee For Revising The Translation Of The New Testament. In 1875 He Became Lady Margaret's Professor Of Divinity In Succession To William Selwyn.

"The sixty 'hours' in the 1804 edition include essays on the operation of the Gothic aesthetic and response to various supernatural experiences as well as short tales of terror illustrating his discussion of Gothic narrative theory.

        Analyse raisonnée des principes fondamentaux de l'économie politique

      chez Courcier, imprimeur-libraire pour les mathématiques, quai des Augustins, n. 71, an XII, A Paris 1804 - In-8 (195x125 mm.), pp. (4), X, 207, (3). Legatura coeva in mezza pelle con punte, filetti in oro a catenella al dorso con titolo inciso in oro su tassello rosso. Tagli spruzzati di rosso. Ottimo esemplare. Edizione originale, rara. L'autore, allievo di François Quasnay, di ferme idee fisiocratiche, analizzò in questo suo scritto tutti i fattori che formano il processo di produzione, a partire dal una lapidaria definizione di "proprietà" (definizione che verrà negli anni a venire ricordata con parole di scherno da Proudhon). La seconda parte dell'opera, dedicata a questioni di natura fiscale, riporta quei casi di ampiezza, riparto e consistenza del prelievo tributario che possono in un Paese determinare l'indigenza dei produttori, quindi la conseguente decrescita della ricchezza nazionale e il declino di un Paese.

        An essay on education; in which are particularly considered the merits and the defects of the discipline and instruction in our academies ... the second edition, corrected and enlarged.

Questions of corporal punishment, religious instruction, early education, the desirability of teaching the classics, and the merits of public schools as opposed to domestic education are addressed; the two new chapters added to this edition consider dramatic performances in schools (ill-advised and likely to lead to undesirable results, according to the author) and the state of English universities.         NSTC B758.

In 1866 He Was Whitehall Preacher, And In 1871 He Became Canon Of St Paul's Cathedral. His Sermons Were Not Remarkable For Eloquence, But A Certain Solidity And Balance Of Judgment, An Absence Of Partisanship, A Sobriety Of Expression Combined With Clearness And Force Of Diction, Attracted Hearers And Inspired Them With Confidence. "His Personal Character Carried Immense Weight, But His Great Position Depended Still More On The Universally Recognized Fact That His Belief In Christian Truth And His Defense Of It Were Supported By Learning As Solid And Comprehensive As Could Be Found Anywhere In Europe, And By A Temper Not Only Of The Utmost Candor But Of The Highest Scientific Capacity. The Days In Which His University Influence Was Asserted Were A Time Of Much Shaking Of Old Beliefs. The Disintegrating Speculations Of An Influential School Of Criticism In Germany Were Making Their Way Among English Men Of Culture Just About The Time, As Is Usually The Case, When The Tide Was Turning Against Them In Their Own Country. The Peculiar Service Which Was Rendered At This Juncture By The 'Cambridge School' Was That, Instead Of Opposing A Mere Dogmatic Opposition To The T?bingen Critics, They Met Them Frankly On Their Own Ground; And Instead Of Arguing That Their Conclusions Ought Not To Be And Could Not Be True, They Simply Proved That Their Facts And Their Premises Were Wrong. It Was A Characteristic Of Equal Importance That Dr Lightfoot, Like Dr Westcott, Never Discussed These Subjects In The Mere Spirit Of Controversy. It Was Always Patent That What He Was Chiefly Concerned With Was The Substance And The Life Of Christian Truth, And That His Whole Energies Were Employed In This Inquiry Because His Whole Heart Was Engaged In The Truths And Facts Which Were At Stake. He Was Not Diverted By Controversy To Side-Issues; And His Labor Was Devoted To The Positive Elucidation Of The Sacred Documents In Which The Christian Truth Is Enshrined." In 1874, The Anonymous Publication Of Walter Richard Cassels' Supernatural Religion Created Considerable Sensation. In A Series Of Papers In The Contemporary Review, Between December 1874 And May 1877, Lightfoot Undertook The Defense Of The New Testament Canon. The Articles Were Published In Collected Form In 1889. About The Same Time He Was Engaged In Contributions To W Smith's Dictionary Of Christian Biography And Dictionary Of The Bible, And He Also Joined The Committee For Revising The Translation Of The New Testament. In 1875 He Became Lady Margaret's Professor Of Divinity In Succession To William Selwyn.

Most prized for the remarkable range of illustrative engravings, portraits of historical and contemporary notabilities - including Goethe, a friend of Lavater's, Socrates, Locke, Samuel Johnson, Bach, George Washington, Diderot, Wren, and Voltaire - drawn as examples of the "psychological" or emotional interpretation of physical features. The illustration of the volumes was supervised by Lavater's friend Henry Fuseli (described by Lavater as "one of the greatest imaginations in Rome ... everything in extremes ... hurricane and tempest") and employed the talents of Fuseli himself, Chodowiecki, Thomas Holloway, Bartolozzi and William Blake, with four of the engravings being signed by Blake. The illustrations include the famous plate of "madness", "a real scene in the Hospital of St. Spirito at Rome."

        Breve compendio de las reglas, constituciones, privilegios, gracias é indulgencias, de la Real Tercera Orden de Nra. Sra. de la Merced, nuevamente restablecida en la iglesia del convento grande de S. Miguel de Lima.

      1804. St. Peter Nolasco (ca. 1182-1249 or 1256) founded the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the Ransom of Captives (or Mercedarians) in 1218; quickly successful in its work of redeeming Christian prisoners, it also undertook other charitable work. A third "Mercedarian" order was founded in 1260 for lay male and female supporters and assistants, and the first Mercedarian convent was established in Lima in 1535, the year of the Spanish founding of the city, where the religious were noted for their work among natives. This document gives the rules, constitutions, privileges, and indulgences of the third order in Lima on the occasion of its reestablishment at the conventual church of St. Michael. A fine woodcut of the arms of the Mercedarian order, surrounded by a typographic border, graces the verso of the title-leaf. This is the first edition of the Breve compendio; it was reprinted in 1870.

        Alexander Hamilton, Major General of the Armies of the United States of America. Secretary of the Treasury &c. &c

      New York: Columbia Academy of Painting & by William Rollinson, 1804. Stipple engraving. Large broadside, 23 1/4 x 17 1/2 inches. Untrimmed. Memorial Portrait of Alexander Hamilton: The First United States Secretary of the TreasuryFirst state of two, and called by Wendy Shadwell "the finest American stipple engraving." This copy belonged to the 19th century collector Thomas Jefferson McKee, and was a part of the sale that distributed his collection after his death.Alexander Hamilton (1755 or 1757-1804) died of the wounds he received in a duel with Vice President Aaron Burr on July 12, 1804. Hamilton was a leading American statesman, financier, and political theorist, a constitutional lawyer par excellence , and a man with an international reputation. Talleyrand once said, "I consider Napoleon, Fox, and Hamilton the three greatest men of our epoch, and if I were forced to decide between the three, I would give without hesitation the first place to Hamilton." The present work, a joint publishing venture between artist and engraver, was published within eight weeks of Hamilton's death and was clearly intended as a memorial to a man who was also an important figure within the State of New York. Hamilton, elegantly dressed, is shown beside a table upon which books and documents lie, including two docketed "Liberty of the Press," and "Carriage Tax." Books on a shelf beside him resemble the two-volume 1802 edition of The Federalist , of which he was a primary author, and nearby is a document entitled "Report on Funding the Public Debt." Above these are shown Hamilton's sword, military cap, and a rolled map, commemorating his Revolutionary War service as George Washington's aide-de-camp. In pose and setting, it is reminiscent of John Trumbull's 1804 portrait of Hamilton.Archibald Robertson was born in Scotland, and received his initial art training there before moving to London, where he studied with both Sir Joshua Reynolds and Benjamin West. He was invited to America by Dr. John Kemp of Columbia College and arrived in 1791. In 1792 his brother Alexander, also an artist, joined him, and together they operated the Columbian Academy of Painting, one of the earliest art schools in America. The Academy is given as one of the two addresses from which the present print was available. The other address is that of English-born engraver William Rollinson.Harry MacNeill Bland & Virginia W. Northcott, "The Life Portraits of Alexander Hamilton" in William & Mary Quarterly (April, 1955), pp.187-98, fig. 13; McKee Sale VIII 7253; Shadwell, American Printmaking " The First 150 Years " 93 ("first state"); Stauffer 2709.
