[PAINTING - SAINT HELENA]. [BELLASIS, George Hutchins, after].
An oil painting on brass, showing Jamestown on the island Saint Helena, with its houses, fortress, governor's residence and Church of St James, and with two ships and a boat in the bay before the city. Although the painting is unsigned and undated, it clearly matches the 4 June 1806 print published by Edward Orme in London, which was engraved by John Heaveside Clarke & J.R. Hamble after George Hutchins Bellasis (1788-1822). The interest in Saint Helena rose enormously when Napoleon was imprisoned there in 1815, so that is the most likely time for someone to have copied the 1806 print. Bellasis took a commission in the British army at Bombay, where his father was commander of the forces. Illness forced him to leave Bombay for home in 1804, but his condition worsened underway and he had to disembark at Saint Helena on 4 November 1804 and remain there eight months to recover before returning home. Bellasis was an amateur artist and when he recovered sufficiently, presumably in the new year, he made a series of views of the spectacular island almost 2000 kilometres from the nearest land. The print made from Bellasis's view of Jamestown, published on 4 June 1806, only months after he returned to England, is so close to the present painting that one must have copied the other. It seems most likely that the painting is a direct copy of the print. In very good condition, with only a few minor surface scratches in the varnish. A lovely painting of Saint Helena on brass, following a view made there in 1805.

DUPUIS, Charles François.
Paris: Courcier, 1806. Sheet 635 x 495mm. Binding folds flattened, repairs to corners of folds. A decorative table of the Zodiac, comparing the astronomical systems of the ancient civilizations, including the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Chinese, published in 'Memoire explicatif du Zodiaque chronologique et mythologique'. Charles François Dupuis (1742-1809) was a French anthropologist who believed that the signs of the zodiac were invented by the ancient Egyptians and served them as a sort of astronomical and agricultural calendar. On this basis he built up a thorough system of mythology and chronology, accounting for the origin of religions. The full text of the 'Memoire' is available on Google Books.

Das grundlegende Werk der Herbartschen Pädagogik. Als Philosoph steht Herbart bis heute im Schatten des deutschen Idealismus, dessen spekulative Methode er scharf kritisiert hat. Von grundlegender Bedeutung ist er dagegen bis heute mit seiner Forderung, die Pädagogik müsse sich auf ihre "einheimischen" Begriffe besinnen. Ausgehend von dieser Forderung wurde er einer der einflußreichsten Begründer der Pädagogik als selbständiger Wissenschaft. Der Grundbegriff seiner Pädagogik ist die "alle einseitigen Freiheits- und endogenen wie exogenen Determinationslehren negierende dem Menschen eigene 'Bildsamkeit'. Der Mensch ist eine offene, personale und individuelle Ganzheit von epochal und inhaltlich gebundenen Fähigkeiten. Ihn zu sittlichen Selbstbestimmung zu befähigen ist die Aufgabe der Erziehung" (W. Asmus in NDB VIII, 574). - Gering gebräunt u. vereinzelt leicht fleckig. [2 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

[MANUSCRIPT - HORSES - MILITARY].
[4 blank], 248, 251-254, 257-267, [9 blank] pp.Very beautifully illustrated manuscript by a retired Dutch cavalry officer who had been in Prussian service against Napoleon Bonaparte in the years 1806 to 1813, giving his personal account of the horses he kept and traded during his career. The fine watercolours, executed with great care and refined draughtsmanship, show portraits of all 31 horses the author once owned. The text of the manuscript is also of considerable interest. The author relates many entertaining stories and includes many personal details his lifelong schooling in horsemanship, displaying a profound knowledge of horses. He also gives accounts of his daily life in the Prussian army. The manuscript provides insight into the life of the Silesian and Saxon noblemen, proceedings at the horse market in Leipzig, the situation of the army before the Battle of Jena, etc. Moreover, it gives a detailed descriptions of the terrible plundering of the French Wurtenberger Light Cavalry in Silesia, in 1806, and of the Russian invasion of Wohlau in 1813. Separate treatises devoted to these incidents precede the main part of the manuscript (the anecdotes and other information concerning horses) and serve as a sort of preface to them. The author also gives an account of his stay at the camp of the Count van Salm near Bergen-op-Zoom, Netherlands, of a horseback trip from Vianen to Utrecht, during which his horse fell and died, and another trip, from The Hague to Zutphen, on a tireless Zeeland horse. The manuscript explicitly refers to events from 1806 to June 1813 and was prob … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Monti, Vincenzo].
Parma: Co' Tipi Bodoniani, 1806. Large 4to (30.6 cm, 12.06"). [4], viii, [2], 127, [3] pp. Impressive Bodoni quarto edition — the first in this format — of this epic lyric poem, dedicated to Napoleon and extolling his military accomplishments. Drawing not only on Neoclassical tropes but also on Ossian for literary inspiration, Monti describes triumphs including the Battle of Ulm, the Egyptian campaign, the coup d'état of 1799, and the Battle of Austerlitz. In 1806, Bodoni printed the six existing cantos (the proposed second and third parts of the poem were never completed) in three forms: folio, quarto, and octavo, none of which are now common. => The unadorned text of the present version makes a still understated but real impact at this size. Brooks 998; De Lama, II, 170; Giani 176 (p. 71). 19th-century brown calf–backed marbled paper–covered boards, spine tooled in gilt and blind with gilt-stamped coronet-surmounted coat of arms at foot (appears to incorporate the arms of Tobarra, Spain); moderate rubbing to spine, joints, and edges. Hinges (inside) with sections showing insect damage, but holding. Page edges uncut. A few instances of light foxing, confined to margins and less than might be expected. => An attractive example.

Mounted on paper with a painted frame, dealer's notes in pencil on the back; matted. § A lively comic street scene by Rowlandson; a work that must have proved popular as other versions of the painting are known, including one acquired by King George V. "Rag Fair, near present-day Liverpool Street Station, was a market where old clothes and textiles were traded, and was renowned as a noisy area with a swift trade in stolen goods. Rowlandson made at least three other versions of this drawing" (The Royal Collection Trust). With authentication letters from Sessler and Sabin, both dated 1956, and further authenticated by Andrew Clayton-Payne, the noted British art dealer and author of a catalogue of Rowlandson.

Exerceu o cargo de Monteiro-mor de Moura, Juiz de Fora, Juiz dos Órfãos e Escrivão da Câmara da Vila de Santa Marta de Penaguião e Corregedor da Comarca de Miranda. A dedicatória feita ao Marquês de Abrantes, deve-se ao facto de ele ser também Conde de Penaguião e que por esse motivo, pertencia-lhe o senhorio daquele concelho. A nomeação para os cargos que o autor exerceu naquela vila, dependia, por conseguinte, em muito da vontade do fidalgo. Foi assim uma maneira, talvez, de agradecer as benesses que o Marquês de Abrantes lhe concedeu.

DUPUIS, Charles François.
Paris: Courcier, 1806. Sheet 635 x 495mm. Binding folds flattened, repairs to corners of folds. A decorative table of the Zodiac, comparing the astronomical systems of the ancient civilizations, including the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Chinese, published in 'Memoire explicatif du Zodiaque chronologique et mythologique'. Charles François Dupuis (1742-1809) was a French anthropologist who believed that the signs of the zodiac were invented by the ancient Egyptians and served them as a sort of astronomical and agricultural calendar. On this basis he built up a thorough system of mythology and chronology, accounting for the origin of religions. The full text of the 'Memoire' is available on Google Books.

Journ. pract. Heilk., 24. - Jena, Academ. Bhdlg., 1806, 8, 176 pp., 182, (2) 190, (2), 191, (1), mit 3 gefalteten Kupfertafeln, marmor. Pappband der Zeit mit Rückenschild feines Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe ! Als Philipp Bozzini (1783-1809) 1806 seinen "Lichtleiter" vorstellte, begann das eigentliche Zeitalter moderner Endoskopie. Die Konstruktion des damals erst 27jährigen Frankfurter Arztes war ein relativ einfaches, geniales Gerät. In das Innere der Körperhöhlen gelenkte Lichtstrahlen wurden zum Auge des Betrachters zurückgeleitet. Das Instrument besteht aus dem 'Lichtbehälter' und den für die einzelnen bestimmten 'Lichtleitungen', das sind entsprechend geformte Röhren und 'Winkelleitungen', die in das zu untersuchende Hohlorgan eingeführt werden. Der 'Lichtbehälter' ist wie eine Vase geformt. Vorn ist eine runde Öffnung, die durch eine Scheidewand getrennt ist. In der einen Kammer treten die Strahlen der Lichtquelle aus, in der anderen, der Reflektionsleitung, gelangen sie zum Auge zurück. Dies war die erste Konzeption eines Endoskopes, die in den Grundzügen bis heute gültig ist. Der frühe Tod Bozzinis, er starb mit knapp 30 Jahren am Typhus, brachte ihn um die Erfolge seiner Erfindung. Die 'berufenen' Fachgenossen erkannten den Wert seiner Erfindung nicht. Kleinliche Kritik überwog, Bozzinis Instrument geriet in Vergessenheit. Erst Désormeaux und später Nitze verhalfen der Endoskopie zum Durchbruch. First Edition. The rise of Endoscopy in the modern sense of the term began in the early nineteenth century when Bozzini of Frankfurt-on-Main in 1806, realized the value … [Click Below for Full Description]

IGNOTUS; Alex HUNTER (ed.).
Culina famulatrix medicinae: or, receipts in modern cookery; with a medical commentary, ... The fourth edition.York, Wilson and Spence, 1806. 12mo. With an engraved frontispiece showing a pig with the headline "Transmigration". Contemporary half calf, marbled sides, title in gold on spine, sprinkled edges. 308 pp. Fourth edition of Ignotus's cookery book, first published in 1804 and first revised by Alexander Hunter for the second edition of 1805, though the Wellcome Library accepts the suggestion, made by at least 1822, that Ignotus was Hunters own pseudonym. It includes about 265 pages with recipes, accompanied by Ignotuss remarks about them, often polemical, but written with humour. Altogether this cookery book is quite unusual, because its primary purpose is not culinary or gastronomic, but more scientific and medical. This resonates in the recipes: Ignotus complains that most cookery books use only "vague expressions" such as add "a pennyworth of this" and "a pinch of that".Binding slighty rubbed, especially on the spine, corners bumped, first and last endleaf somewhat loose, and some water stains and foxing on the endleaves. Otherwise in good condition. Bitting, p. 238 note; Vicare, col. 240; Wellcome III, p. 316.
