      [colophon: Mexico Folio (30 cm; 11.75" ). [5] ff.. 1804 This compilation is of legal directives concerning 1) parochial jurisdiction in burial of individuals under the care of a naval chaplain who die not aboard ship but in a land based hospital, and 2) the need to establish definitively how to perform a Caesarian delivery after the death of the mother. This latter — "Modo de hacer la operacion cesarea despues de muerta la madre" — occupies most of the final two leaves, and begins with the practical precaution, "Before opening the belly, carefully examine to make sure the mother, although apparently dead, is not alive." Instructions follow on how to ascertain death, on the approved method of Cesarean section on a dead mother, and on what should be done with the fetus if alive and if dead. Searches of NUC Pre-1956, WorldCat, COPAC, and CCPBE locate only the copies at the British Library, the Wellcome, and the National Library of Medicine. => An important, rare, and early Mexican woman's health work. Lacks its original plain wrappers; a copy soiled, with staining, worming costing letters, and tattered edges. => Significant, usable, and evocative.

        [Ulisse nell'isola di Circe]. [Cantata]. Ah se parti amato bene Nella Circe. Scena inedita di Niccolò Zingarelli. Autograph musical manuscript full score of a complete scene. Signed and dated 1802

      The cantata Ulisse nell'isola di Circe (undated) is listed in both Grove and MGG2 (without references to sources). RISM lists a single, incomplete manuscript source at the Library of Congress (ID no.: 000131573), ascribed to Zingarelli and tentatively assigned to this cantata because of the cast (Mercurio, Ulisse, Circe). Zingarelli studied with Fenaroli, Speranza, Anfoss, and Sacchini, and became musical director at S Pietro in Rome after Guglielmi's death in 1804. He is considered "the last major composer of opera seria... One of the principal characteristics of Zingarelli's style is the simplicity (and often the sweetness) of his melodic language... His arias were written specifically for such singers as Crescentini, Rubini, Pasta and Malibran..." "His secular cantatas, with string or orchestral accompaniment, occupy an important place in his output. Since Zingarelli wrote them throughout his career they demonstrate, more than the operas and sacred music, all his various attempts at stylistic renewal, and are thus important from a historial perspective..." "His refined literary taste is reflected in his choice of texts by Dante, Petrarch, Ariosto and his favourite, Tasso." R.M. Longyear and Rodobaldo Tibaldi in Grove Music Online. Autograph manuscripts by Zingarelli are very scarce. We have located single examples only at the Library of Congress, The Morgan Library and Museum, and the Folger Shakespeare Library.. Oblong folio (295 x 225 mm). Sewn. Notated in black ink on 10-stave paper. 22 pp. Ascription, "de Niccolò Zingarelli," and date, "1802," to upper right corner of title. Incipit, "Ah se parti amato bene," added later to title, possibly in a different hand. Note, "Laus Deo," at conclusion of music. "P. 32," in black ink to foot of title, followed by initials "P.I." A complete scene, consisting of a recitative, "Senti mia vita Circe date," scored for two violins, viola, Circe (soprano), and unfigured bass (2 pages; 5 staves per system); and an aria, "Ah se parti amato bene," in which two horns in F and two oboes are added (7 staves per system). In F major. With the deletion of three incomplete measures on f.8v. Occasional show-through; small tear to outer margin of f.9.

        Essai théorique et expérimental sur le Galvanisme, avec une série d'expériences faites en présence des commissaires de l'Institut national de France, et en divers amphithéâtres anatomiques de Londres

      - vol. de I. (6), XVI, 350pp., Paris, Fournier Fils, an XII (1804), in-8, vol. de I. (6), XVI, 350pp, 7pl. - II. (4), XII, 330pp, 3pl, demi-basane olive, dos plats ornés de filets dorés (reliure de l'époque), 10 planches dépliantes gravées par Bordier, Blanchard, Leroy d'après Pecheux et Legrand, illustrant les expériences d'Aldini. Première édition de cet ouvrage dédié à Bonaparte et qui parut la même année au format in-4. On y trouve la description des effets du courant électrique sur le système animal, la vitesse du fluide électrique à travers l'eau, les poissons électriques, la conductivité des flammes. Index. Giovanni Aldini (1762-1834) décrit ici l'une des premières expériences d'électro-magnétisme exécutée par Joseph Mojon qui découvrit, dès 1804, l'une des propriétés fondamentale du courant électrique: l'aimantation des aiguilles d'acier. On connaît de lui aussi les expériences relatées ici qui furent faites sur des têtes de condamnés et des corps. "In these experiments, the body became violently agitated and even raised itself as if about to walk, the arms alternately rose and fell and the forearm was made to hold a weight of several pounds(.), natural respiration was also artificially restablished" (Mottelay). Aldini, neveu de Galvani, s'était fait le champion de la cause galvanique, au point que Volta s'est souvent adressé à lui au cours de la polémique sur la détermination de la véritable nature de l'électricité animale. À plusieurs reprises, Aldini collabora avec son oncle, notamment en 1794, pour la rédaction de l'anonyme Dell'uso e dell'attivita dell'arco conduttore, qui contient la description d'une expérience cruciale : la contraction du genou d'une grenouille disséquée sans l'utilisation de métaux, ce qui établissait pour la première fois l'existence de forces électriques au sein des tissus vivants ; en somme, un moment important dans la théorie physiologique de ce qu'on nommait autrefois "l'électricité animale", aujourd'hui l'électrophysiologie. Cachet de l'Institut Catholique de Paris. Dos passé. Trace de restauration aux mors et à un coin. Mouillure aux coins des trois premiers feuillets du premier tome, autrement, intérieur frais. DSB I-107 ; Mottelay p. 304 ; Poggendorff I-27 ; Wheeler Gift n°660. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Astley's Projects, in his Management of the Horse; rendering it Calm on the Road, in Harness, &c. Such Acquirements may prevent Dreadful Accidents. Being an Abridgement of his Popular and Most Valuable Book f Equestrian Education. To which is prefixed, many Excellent Remedies for the Diseases in Horses, &c.

      London, Printed by T. Burton, Sold by S. Creed, 1804 - Octavo (170 × 105 mm) largely unopened in the publisher's boards. Slightly rubbed, a large part of the spine chipped away, upper hinge cracked but holding, light browning, but a very good copy. Folding frontispiece. In 1768 Astley established his first "'riding school' in a fenced wayside field on Lambeth Marsh named Halfpenny Hatch. Styling himself the English Hussar, he promised such feats as straddling two cantering and jumping horses, doing headstands on a pint pot on the saddle, and a parody of riding by a foppish tailor" (ODNB). By the 1780s he had amphitheatres in London, Paris and Dublin, and was widely recognised as the foremost equestrian trainer and performer of the day. He also was known for his far-sighted views of the feeding and management of horses, and was one of the first subscribers to the London Veterinary School. The present work was a handy pocket-sized abridgement of his popular System of Equestrian Education, first published 1801, and is extremely uncommon with just four copies on COPAC (BL, Imperial College, Oxford, and Edinburgh) and six on OCLC.

        LES MONUMENS ANTIQUES DU MUSÉE NAPOLÉON, DESSINÉS ET GRAVÉS PAR THOMAS PIROLI, avec une explication par J. G. SCHWEIGHAEUSER, publiés par F. et P. PIRANESI, freres.

"Al final de la obra se da cuenta de la duración de la impresión: "Cet Ouvrage commencé le 5 Avril 1804, a été terminé le 5 Decembre 1806".Quoique, en général, la gravure en soit assez lâchée et souvent trop lestement faite, elle rend, assez ordinairement, le caractère de ses modèles, et peut être ne désirerait-on pas plus de soin à ces planches, si on ne les considérai[t] que comme des croquis spirituellement touchés, d'une pointe vive légère, qui réveille suffisamment le souvenir des productions de la sculpture antique. Au reste cet ouvrage, dont Ie texte est écrit avec goût et une saine érudition par MM. Schweighaüser le fils et Petit-Radel, de l'académie des inscriptions, est loin de contenir toutes les richesses du Musée royal des antiques. Il est vrai aussi qu'il offre beaucoup de monumens que nous ne possédons plus, et dont les souvenirs excitent nos regrets ; mais comme la publication en a été terminée en 1806, il doit naturellement y manquer toutes les nombreuses acquisitions qui depuis ont, sinon réparé, du moins adouci une partie de nos pertes. Cette production classique, et d'une lecture agréable, est, ainsi que la notice de Visconti, de la plus grande utilité pour bien connaître les antiques du Musée à ses diverses époques jusqu’en 1815."

        Three Tracts on the Syntax and Pronunciation of the Hebrew Tongue;

      London: by W. Calvert for Vernor and Hood, F. and C. Rivington, J. White, J. Hatchard, W. Dwyer, and L. Pennington, at Durham,, 1804. With an appendix addressed to the Hebrew nation. Octavo (187 x 110 mm). Uncut in original boards, white paper backstrip, manuscript title to spine. With the individual title pages and half-titles for each tract, the register continuous except for the appendix. Spine slightly rolled and chipped, a few small markings to covers. An excellent, entirely unsophisticated copy. First and only edition. Sharp (1735-1813) is best remembered as one of the first abolitionists, through whose efforts "the anti-slavery movement gained public attention and sympathy and ? transformed itself from a benign climate of opinion to a highly organized campaign" (ODNB); 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 Unitiarian 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" (idem). "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).

        An inquiry into the nature and origin of public wealth, and into the means and causes of its increase.

      8vo., (8) 482pp., without the half-title but with the folding table, occasional minor foxing and a few insignificant rust marks, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spine simply gilt with red morocco lettering piece. A very good copy with the binder's ticket on front pastedown of J. Tushingham of Chester. An important commentary on Smith's Wealth of Nations. "Specifically, Lauderdale asserts that: (1) the maximisation of private riches does not lead to maximum public wealth and welfare; (2) labour is not the cause of value or an adequate measure of new value; (3) division of labour is not a major factor in economic growth; (4) parsimony and saving are frequently a public detriment as they may lead to over- investment and a capital glut; and (5) government tax revenues applied to rapid debt reduction will reduce aggregate consumption, deflate profits and capital values, and result in economic distress." (New Palgrave 3, p.137)."To Lauderdale belongs the credit of having been the first to put forward a connected theory on the nature of profit, in the form of a theory, and not of scattered observations. Lauderdale's importance in the history of economics lies not in his conclusions but in the fact that he was the first in England to consider systematically the fundamental conceptions on which the science is based. In this respect alone he is in advance of Adam Smith." (Palgrave (1926) II, p.574).

Champneys, Esq. late Lieut. Colonel Commandant of the Selwood Forest Legion, to the Corps, on his resignation of the command, Monday, March 12th 1804. Frome, Printed at the desire of the Corps. By Crockers. [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.

        The Works of Plato, Viz. His Fifty-Five Dialogues, and Twelve Epistles, Translated From the Greek; Nine of the Dialogues by the Late Floyer Sydenham, and the Remainder by Thomas Taylor.

      - 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).

      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.

        Memorial of the Agents of the New England Mississippi Land Company to Congress : With a Vindication of Their Title At Law Annexed

Wear to extremities. Library stamp to second page from NYPL dated 1902. Contemporary owners name to head of title page of Thomas Dwight, Massachusetts representative during the 8th Congress. Dwight's notations to some pages. Shaw & Shoemaker 7540. Sabin 52708 OCLC 1484388 <br> An extremely important Yazoo document. The Yazoo land scandal was a massive fraud perpetrated from in the mid-1790s by Georgia governor George Mathews and the state legislature. They sold large tracts of land in the Yazoo lands, in what are now portions of Alabama and Mississippi, to political insiders at very low prices in 1794. <br>With the end of the American Revolutionary War, most of the states of the new Union attempted to extend their territorial claims from the Proclamation line of 1763 to the lands towards the Mississippi River. <Br> The Yazoo scandal began after the Bourbon County Act was dissolved in 1788 under pressure by the federal government, a secret society was formed called the Combined Society, formed with purpose money by land speculation. The group gained power in the state legislature and in the following year, three companies, The South Carolina Yazoo Company, The Virginia Yazoo Company (which was headed by Patrick Henry), and the Tennessee Company built by the society’s interests, formed to buy land from Georgia. These venture were exposed and the deal for the land fell through in 1792, though the members of the Society still wished to develop Georgia lands. <br>In 1794, four companies were formed, with several principal being from the original members of 1789 purchases and high ranking Georgian politicians to purchase 40 million acres of land for $500,000. On January 7, 1795, Governor Mathews signed into law a bill authorizing the sale of the 40,000,000 acres known as the Yazoo Act. When the details of the sale were revealed, public outrage was widespread, and people protested to federal officials and Congressmen. Jared Irwin and U.S. Senator James Jackson led the reform efforts: Irwin was elected Governor of Georgia and, less than two months after taking office, signed The Rescinding Act on February 13, 1796 nullifying the Yazoo Act. <br> On the same day of The Rescinding Act, 11 million acres of the Yazoo land was sold to the New England Mississippi Land Company, who felt the repel was illegal, for $1,138,000, a 650% profit in 13 months' time. The lands west of Georgia would be ceded to the United States government in the Compact of 1802 for 1.25 million. This last act threw land holders into a limbo, and claims by third-party owners who had innocently purchased land from the original companies would not be resolved till 1816. <br> With the last private sale prior to the Compact of 1802, coupled with the 11th amendment, the landmark case of Fletcher v. Peck would occur. John Peck of Massachusetts bought land from someone who could trace his title to the state of Georgia from 1795, when the Act was legal. He then sold 15,000 acres to Robert Fletcher of New Hampshire, based on a warranty deed, warranting good title. The two were obviously citizens of different New England states, and in June 1803 Fletcher sued Peck in federal circuit court in Massachusetts on diversity grounds, alleging that the title was bad, and requesting the return of his money. This landmark Yazoo document attempts to serve the land holders affected by the 1802 Compact, the fledgling court case, as well as an attempt to repel the sale by the State of Georgia.
