      - Göttingen, J. F. Röwer, 1806. 8vo. X, 482 S. Pappband d. Zeit mit Rückenschild (beschabt u. bestoßen). Erste Ausgabe. - 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 "einheimische" 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 sittlicher Selbstbestimmung zu befähigen ist die Aufgabe der Erziehung" (W. Asmus in NDB 8, 574). - Das vorliegende Exemplar wie meist ohne die 2 Bl. Verlagsanzeigen am Schluß gebunden. - Gebräunt u. stockfleckig. Vorsätze mit kl. Sammlerstempel.

        The Antiquities of the Anglo-Saxon Church.

      Newcastle: Printed by Edward Walker; Keating, Brown, and Keating, London, , 1806. 2 volumes, octavo (211 x 126 mm). Contemporary calf, smooth spines, gilt in compartments, green morocco labels, gilt roll to board edges. Wood-engraved title vignettes by Thomas Bewick, engraved folding map hand-coloured in outline. Headcap of vol. 1 worn, just exposing headband, spines lightly rubbed, front joint of vol. 1 tender, occasional light foxing, still very good, a pleasing set. First edition. John Lingard (1771-1851) was an English Catholic priest, historian, and commentator on Catholic life in the 19th century. Best known for his eight-volume History of England (London, 1819-30), Lingard was one of the final students of the English College in Douai, northern France and wrote a number of works of history and theology. The Antiquities of the Anglo-Saxon Church was his first work and in this Lingard asserted the catholicity of the Anglo-Saxon church in opposition to the prevailing protestant depiction of an independent English church in this era. With the 20th-century bookplates of Robin Lingard, presumably a descendant of the author.

        CODICE DI NAPOLEONE IL GRANDE PEL REGNO D'ITALIA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE E LA SOLA UFFICIALE

      Milano Reale Stamperia 1806 4° Pagine 1 carta bianca + occhietto + XXXVI + 634 + 1 carta bianca. Legatura coeva in cartone rustico ricoperta da carta floreale coeva con qualche mancanza al dorso ed ai piatti. Errore di impaginazione tra pagina 256 e pagina 257 dove sono inserte erroneamente le pagine 265-266-267-268-269-270-271-272. Piccole segno di tarlo al margine interno da pagina 599 a pagina 622. Pagine 633 3 634 restaurate ab antiquo al margine inferiore ed al margine esterno. Taglin spruzzati. Ottimo esemplare. Rara prima edizione del celebre Codice, fondamento di tutti i codici civili moderni, basato sui principi della rivoluzione francese di libertà ed eguaglianza di tutti i cittadini, sulla separazione fra diritto civile ed ecclesiastico, sull'inviolabilità della proprietà. In seguito esso divenne il modello di riferimento per la maggior parte dei Codici Civili del mondo, incluso il Codice Civile Italiano del 1865. Il Codice Napoleonico fu introdotto a partire dal 1804 in tutte le nazioni sotto il controllo francese. Walker: "The code was introduced in 1804 not only into France, but into areas then under French control, Belgium, Luxembourg, parts of western Germany, and northwestern Italy and was later introduced into other countries conquered by France, such as the Netherlands in 1809, and before 1815 it had been accepted voluntarily by various smaller European states. In the nineteenth century it was adopted or copied in various European and Latin American countries. In Louisiana the Civil Code of 1825 (revised 1870) was closely connected with the Code Napoleon. The Albertine Code of Piedmont (1848) and the Italian Civil Code of 1865 similarly owed much to it". In Italia uscirono nello stesso anno due diverse edizioni originali, una con il testo francese e italiano, come la presente, ed una col solo testo in italiano. In fine, a pagina 524, la "Tavola delle distanze da Milano a tutti i Capo-luoghi dei Dipartimenti regolate col ragguaglio del miriametro al miglio italiano"

        Specimen historiae Arabum.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, , 1806. Accessit Historia veterum arabum ex Abu'l Feda: cura Antonii I. Sylvestre de Sacy. Edidit Josephus White. Quarto (249 x 184 mm). Early-20th-century pebble-grain purple cloth, fore edge untrimmed. Engraved portrait frontispiece, vignette to title page. From the collection of British Arabist Colonel Samuel Barrett Miles (1838-1914), with bookplate noting his wife's bequest of his books to Bath Public Library in 1920, and associated manuscript shelf-marks and blind stamps as usual. With the corrigenda slip tipped to p. 33. Sunned overall (unevenly on the boards), contents browned, damp-stain to frontispiece, title page, gradually receding over the first 50 or so pages, contemporary inked correction to p. 449. A very good copy. Second edition of a work which represented "a revolution in Arabic studies" (ODNB) on first publication in 1650. Pococke (1604-1691) was the first Laudian professor of Arabic at Oxford. In 1631 he travelled to Aleppo as chaplain to the Levant Company, and returned to England five years later with a large collection of Arabic manuscripts which included the "Mukhtasar fi'l-duwal", an account of Islamic history written by a 13th-century Syrian bishop Bar Hebraeus (known in Arabic as Abu'l-Faraj) and far superior to anything other sources then available in Europe. He published a small excerpt in Arabic and Latin, with, most importantly, "a lengthy commentary…illuminating Islamic history, geography, mythology, religion, and literature from a wealth of sources, mostly unpublished and previously unknown in Europe … It is his greatest work, and of permanent scholarly value" (ibid.) This edition includes as an appendix the section on the Arabs before Islam from the Mukhtasar ta'rikh al-bashar ("Abridged History of Mankind") of Syrian prince Abu'l-Fida' (1273–1331), which is here printed with the Latin translation and notes of the pre-eminent 19th-century French orientalist Sylvestre de Sacy. The editor, Joseph White (1746-1814) was elected unanimously to the Laudian chair in 1774, and was also a highly accomplished Hebrew scholar.

      - Christophe Louis Léon Juchault de Lamoricière (ou La Moricière), (Nantes, 1806 à Nantes - Prouzel somme, 1865), est un officier et homme politique français. Promu général de division en 1843, au cours des campagnes coloniales dirigées par le général Bugeaud contre l'émir Abd el-Kader en Algérie, Lamoricière s'investit également dans le domaine politique et se fait élire à l'Assemblée législative. Il est nommé ministre de la Guerre en 1848, et participe activement à la répression des Journées de Juin. A cause de son opposition à Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte, après le coup d'état du 2 Decembre 1851, il est arrêté, comme Tocqueville, et sera exilé au cours des années 1850. Nelzir Allard, député a partir de 1847, officier dans le génie, concourut à l'expédition d'Alger ainsi qu'aux premières reconnaissances dans l'Atlas.

Four contemporary German anti-Napoleonic critiques, three anonymously published to escape censorship. (1) A lawyer's perception of the French military occupation of Hanover under Marshal Mortier reflecting on French long term strategic and political plans in Germany and on the British Continental Blockade. Schelver saw Hanover as a victim of its British connection suffering for the sake of the English Nation (cf.: Nick Harding: Hanover and the British Empire 1700-1837 (2007). The 2nd part of his essay is an analysis of the structure and general state of the French army. (2) An assessment of the French administration introduced to the client states of the Confederation of the Rhine especially in regard to the new Kingdom of Westphalia created for Jerôme Napoleon, largely made up of former Hanovarian territory. Berg (1765-1843), was an outstanding lawyer and politician. (3) A formal justification published by an eminent Hanovarian judge who had been dismissed and banished for supporting popular interests against the state. Berlepsch (1749-1818) had openly challenged the demand of the British monarch for military aid from his German dominions against revolutionary France which he declared unconstitutional. His descendants were later compensated by William IV. (4)An anonymous condemnation of the mediatisation of German church lands to compensate those German princes who lost their lands on the left banks of the Rhine to French annexation. From the collection of Lord Stuart de Rothesay (1779-1845), British ambassador at The Hague, Paris and St Petersburg. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This edition includes as an appendix the section on the Arabs before Islam from the Mukhtasar ta'rikh al-bashar ("Abridged History of Mankind") of Syrian prince Abu'l-Fida' (1273–1331), which is here printed with the Latin translation and notes of the pre-eminent 19th-century French orientalist Sylvestre de Sacy. The editor, Joseph White (1746-1814) was electedunanimously to the Laudian chair in 1774, and was also a highly accomplished Hebrew scholar.

        A Treatise on Indigence; exhibiting a general view of the national resources for productive labour; with propositions for ameliorating the condition of the poor, and improving the moral habits and increasing the comforts of the labouring people, particularly the rising generation; by regulations of political economy, calculated to prevent poverty from descending into indigence, to produce sobriety and industry, to reduce the Parochial Rates of the Kingdom, and generally to promote the Happiness and Security of the community at large, by the diminution of moral and penal offences, and the future prevention of crimes.

      London: J. Hatchard. 1806 - Octavo (209 x 136 mm). Recent quarter calf and marbled boards, spine lettered gilt, green laid paper endpapers. Short tear in the gutter at the head of the title, title a little dust soiled at head, occasional light spotting; a very good copy. Complete with folding table at p. 23 and final advertisement leaf. Ownership stamp of the Women's University Settlement, Nelson Square, Southwark to front free endpaper and to upper margin of p. 83, shelf mark to title in ink. First edition of Colquhoun's major work on the question of poverty and pauperism, its relationship to crime and disorder and the need for a new comprehensive system of police. This valuable work contains plans for a board of education, national savings bank with state guarantee to depositoers, a system of reproductive work for the unemployed, a national poor-rate uniformly assessed, and the issue of a police gazette, containing statistics of crime and descriptions of the persons of offenders. Colquhoun begins with a clear definition of "poverty" which is to be distinguished from "indigence". In this he was following the lead of Jeremy Bentham, and his sentiments clearly echo those of Bentham. He states that poverty is "an indispensable and necessary ingredient in civil society", and is "that state and condition . where the individual has no surplus in store, and, consequently, no property but what is derived from the constant exercise of industry in the various occupations of life; or in other words, it is the state of every one who must labour for subsistence. Poverty is therefore a most necessary and indispensable ingredient in society, without which nations and communities could not exist in a state of civilization." "Indigence therefore and not poverty, is the evil. It is that condition in society which implies want, misery, and distress. It is the state of any one who is destitute of the means of subsistence, and is unable to labour to produce it to the extent nature requires. The natural source of subsistence is the labour of the individual; while that remains with him he is denominated poor when it fails in whole or in part he becomes indigent." This definition of indigence precedes a discussion about an "appropriate system of police," "a system of pauper and general police," and "the board a channel of instructions by means of police gazette." "By the term police we are to understand all those regulations in a country which apply to the comfort, convenience, and safety of the inhabitants, whether it regards their security against the calamity of indigence, or the effects produced by moral and criminal offences." Colquhoun makes it clear that by "police" he means all the modes of control and prevention which society can bring to bear to maintain social order. Once an offence or offences have been committed it is no longer a matter of police but a matter for the magistrates. Colquhoun regrets that at the time of writing "the whole system of the national police is without that watchful and superintending agency which is indispensably necessary to produce a preventive effect; and to this cause is chiefly attributed the great increase of indigence, vagrancy, and crimes." From these arguments it is possible to see that for Colquhoun, police and poor law are one of the same; in fact poor-law is subsumed within and becomes an aspect of Police in its original wider sense. Colquhoun's concept, therefore, of a system of police, is of a central office of social policy, working under the aegis of the Home Department, whose function is essentially preventive and whose object apart from the narrow ones of preventing crime and securing the property of the individual, is social amelioration in the widest sense especially including all that tends to the better education and employment of the poor.

        TOOSO TAISE SHURAN: COMPLIATION OF WRITINGS ON MEASELS AND SMALL POX.

      - [Edo 1806, Suharaya]. Stitched brown wrs., very good, 3 vol. set, complete, minor scuffing to covers, contents clean, woodblock printed on hand-made Washi paper, 19 x 26 cm., [35 +38+45] double folded leaves, clean, complete, 2nd edition. The original work was written by Oh Jaku Gen in Ming in Chinese in Meiwa 8th, 1771, then adapted to be Kambun, a form of easily read Japanese, with Furigana. It was published by Ko-bun-do in Kyoto * The work is illustrated with two examples and enhanced with several figures, one shows a youth with many 'poxes' on his face. * THE PREFACE DATE: The preface cites a 1771 date indicating this work was issued first in that year, in an edition of 2 volumes. The preface was then reprinted again in our copy, which is most likely the second revised edition, complete in 3 volumes. *** FIRST ARRIVAL OF MEASLES TO JAPAN: Measles first showed up in Japan in 988 A.D., it was known then as "Akamogasa" or "red pox." In both 1824 & 1862, there was a great epidemic of measles. *** CONDITION: The book covers were bound in blind-stamped swastika covers. There is some rubbing on the front & back covers near the edges of all volumes. The book is firmly bound and stitched. The contents are exceptionally bright and clean, free from any worming or issues. The text is solid, and very fresh. By and large an excellent example. *** RARITY: There are very few monographs from early China or Japan on the subject of Measles or Small pox. There was confusion about both of them in the 17-19th centuries in both countries. While there are recorded epidemics of both, little was known about curing or treating these horrible diseases. Large numbers of children commonly died of this "pox." *** THE AUTHOR'S ALTERNATE NAME: This author use an alternate, HATA Genji, who summarized the earlier original edition. *** REFERENCES: The work is not listed in any of the usual and standard references, although we have checked all of the below: . MESTLER, Gordon E.: A GALAXY OF OLD JAPANESE MEDICAL BOOKS WITH MISCELLANEOUS NOTES ON EARLY MEDICINE IN JAPAN: cites several other books on measles & small pox on pages 200, 169, 293, 204, 206, 298, 205, 293 et. al. * FUJIKAWA, Y.: JAPANESE MEDICINE: measles: pp.75,76,82,84, & 86. * WHITNEY, Willis N.: NOTES ON THE HISTORY OF MEDICAL PROGRESS IN JAPAN.

        Lichtleiter, eine Erfindung zur Anschauung innerer Theile und Krankheiten (pp.107-124, 2 doppelblattgr. Kupfertafeln.

      Journ. pract. Heilk., 24/1. - 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 of inspecting body cavities with the aid of artifical ligth. In his light conductor or "Lichtleiter" the round opening through which the light shone was made of brass. Half the orifice was for light and half for sight. Where straight rays could not be used, a mirror was attached to a reflecting conductor. Bozzini used such an appliance in examinations and operations on the uterus and rectum. It was true, however, that most of the instrument that immediately followed the first 'Lichtleiter' were derived from Bozzini's brainchild.G. Mann, Der Frankfurter Lichtleiter. In: Medizinhist. Journal Bd.8/2-3, pp.105-130 Reuter, Phillip Bozzini u.d. Endoskopie... Bush, Dr.Bozzini's Lichtleiter. G.Lux & L.Demling, 100 Jahre Gastroskopie, Fortschr. Med. 101 Jg.
