        Narrative, of a Five Years' Expedition, Against the Revolted Negroes of Surinam, in Guiana, on the wild coast of South America; from the year 1772, to 1777: elucidating the History of that Country, and describing its Productions... with an account of the Indians of Guiana, & Negroes of Guinea

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, (1806). Second edition, two volumes bound in one, 4to, xviii, 423, (5), iv, 419, (5) pp. Engraved title pages and 81 plates, including 3 folding maps and a folding view, the latter and one of the maps with a closed tear to a fold crease, frontispiece and volume I title with contemporary signatures and light damp stains to the top and bottom edges, some foxing throughout, volume I title cut close to the lower edge with partial loss of the imprint. Contemporary diced calf, corners worn, neatly rebacked. "...one of the most detailed descriptions ever written of an eighteenth-century slave plantation society... The heavily edited first edition distorted Stedman's views on race, slavery, and social justice, and turned them more towards a pro-slavery position. Softened or deleted in the 1796 publication were his admiration for Africans-their institutions, morals, hygiene-including the rebel slaves; his frank depiction of sex between European men and African women; and many of his remarks about the pervasiveness of misconduct and debauchery of European planters. Nonetheless, the Narrative had significant contemporary impact..." (ODNB). 16 of the plates were engraved by William Blake, whose name also appears on the Subscriber's List. Bentley 499B.

        Tableaux Historiques des campagnes D'Italie, depuis l'an IV jusqu'a la Bataille de Marengo; suivis du Precis des operations de l'Armee d'Orient des details sur les ceremonies du sacre, des Bulletins officiels de la Grande Armée et de l'Armée d'Italie dans tout le cours de la dernire guerre d'Allemagne, jusqu'a la paix de Presbourg.

      - Paris, Auber, 1806. Prima edizione francese con incisioni dai dipinti originali di Carl Vernet. In folio, legatura originale in mz. Pelle verde, dorso in pelle marrone di marocchino a sette nervi con fregi e titolo in oro, piatti in tela azzurra, tagli in oro, occhietto, frontespizio, bel ritratto di Napoleone a p.p. che segue il front. (inciso da Simon), pp. X (contenenti l'introduzione e una bella scena allegorica con il trionfo di Napoleone), 138, 63, testo in lingua francese. Il volume è così composto: stemma al frontespizio, ritratto di Napoleone a cavallo, testata celebrativa, 25 tavv., ossia 23 tavv. di battaglie italiane (di cui l’ultima è Marengo), 1 carta geografica dell’Italia a doppia pagina (opera del geografo Lorrain, eseguita da Louvet e con legende incise da Dien), 1 tav. dell’Egitto (con la carta dell’Italia si conclude il "Tableaux Historiques" e segue il "Prècis Historique de l’expedition d’Égypte"; fra la carta dell’Italia e i medaglioni con i ritratti che seguono questa ultima sezione e aprono la "Cérémonies du sacre." - che si conclude a p. 138 - si trova la tavola dell’Egitto); la numerazione riparte da p. 1 con il "Précis Historique de la campagne d’Allemagne" (l’Appendice) e arriva fino alla p. 63 (qui, tra la p. 40 e la 41, non è riportata, come invece risulta esserci in altre copie della medesima edizione, la battaglia di Austerlitz, che manca non per lacuna ma in origine, poiché non contemplata neanche nell’indice delle tavole). Edizione originale, in prima tiratura, delle incisioni di questa celebre opera che ebbe varie ristampe nel corso dell'800. La trattazione offre puntuali resoconti iconografici e descrittivi di ciascuna delle battaglie napoleoniche italiane, un "Précis historique de l'expedition d'Egypte"; un capitolo dedicato alle feste che ebbero luogo a Parigi per l'incoronazione degli Imperatori e, in fine, un "Précis historique sur la campagne d'Allemagne". Il volume, in edizione originale, è quindi una splendida raccolta di incisioni, accompagnate da lunghe relazioni, impresse con eleganti caratteri tipografici. L’opera rappresenta una celebrazione di Napoleone e delle sue imprese, con i testi e le tavole che descrivono le campagne d’Italia, d’Egitto, di Germania e di Polonia, e con una relazione dell’incoronazione di Napoleone imperatore e della sua consorte. I disegni preparatori per le tavole furono forniti dal pittore, disegnatore e incisore Carle Vernet, discendente di una celebre famiglia di artisti settecenteschi; la trasposizione dei disegni su lastra spetta a validi incisori transalpini, tra i quali L. J. Masquelier, Daudet, P.P. Choffard, Dambrun, Dupréel, J. Bosq; le 23 vedute della campagna d’Italia, dall’accurata topografia e ricche di figure, rappresentano le principali battaglie, nonché gli ingressi trionfali delle truppe francesi: tra le località rappresentate ci sono Millesimo, Mondovì, il Po’, Lodi, Milano, Pavia, Livorno, Castiglione, Roveredo, San Giorgio, la Corsica, Arcole, Rivoli, la Favorita, il Tagliamento, Venezia, Mantova, Roma, Torino, Napoli, il valico del Monte San Bernardo, Montebello e Casteggio, Marengo; a seguire una bella carta geografica dell’Italia a doppia pagina, opera del geografo Lorrain, eseguita da Louvet e con legende incise da Dien. Superficiale usura alla legatura, interno marginoso e fresco, nonostante minime tracce d’ossidazione con macchiette di foxing ma soprattutto alla velina che protegge le tavole; per il resto esemplare completo e in buono stato di conservazione.

"The largest portion of Spohr's chamber music was for strings alone, ranging from 19 unsurpassed duos for two violins to four masterly, and largely unemulated, double string quartets. These, together with the 36 string quartets (and several other works for the same combination), seven string quintets and the String Sextet of 1848, display a number of common features. Spohr's own mastery of the violin is evident in all of them, and their technical difficulties, together with the particular style of performance necessary to secure their full effect, may partly explain their infrequent performance. The quartets, especially, fall into two distinct categories: solo quartets in the tradition of Rode (often entitled "Quatuor brillant"), which are essentially violin concertos with string trio accompaniment, and true quartets where the interest is more evenly divided between the instruments. At its most baneful, Spohr's virtuosity induced him to slip into predictable passage-work in the linking sections between the main tonal centres of his sonata form movement. There are, however, many examples of brilliance without vapidity in these works and his imagination seems particularly to have been stimulated by less usual combinations."

        Vermischte Schriften nach dessen Tode aus den hinterlassenen Papieren gesammelt und herausgegeben von L. C. Lichtenberg und F. Kries. 9 Bände. Mit 3 gestoch. Porträts, 4 Kupfertafeln von Daniel Chodowiecki, 10 teils gefalt. Kupfertafeln und einigen Textholzschnitten. Schöne Halblederbände d. Z. mit 2 farb. Rückenschildern und Rückenvergoldung. Marmorpapiervorsätze.

      Göttingen, Dieterich, 1800-1806. - Erste Gesamtausgabe, Vorzugsausgabe auf starkem Büttenpapier. Enthält zahlreiche Erstdrucke, u. a. die berühmten 'Sudelbücher', auf denen der Ruhm Lichtenbergs als brillantestem deutschem Aphoristiker beruht, sowie "Klassiker" wie den 'Timorus', das Tagebuch der Englandreise, 'Ueber Physiognomik' oder die 'Physikalischen und mathematischen Schriften'. Zu Lichtenbergs Bedeutung haben die Bemerkungen von Karl Fuß aus den 20er Jahren noch heute Gültigkeit: "Heute ist Lichtenberg wenn nicht vergessen, so doch nur einem kleineren Kreise literarischer Feinschmecker bekannt. Wer aber einmal den Weg zu seiner skurrilen Persönlichkeit gefunden, der verehrt in ihm einen der feinsten Köpfe unseres gesamten Schrifttums, erkennt in ihm einen der interessantesten Fälle deutscher Geistigkeit. An Lichtenberg läßt sich Grundsätzliches ungemein anschaulich und erschütternd demonstrieren. . Geradlinig erscheint dieses Leben und birgt doch heimliche Dämonie. Dieser Physiker, dieser rationalistische Aufklärer, der den Odendichter Klopstock und die Barden des Göttinger Hains lächerlich machte, der die jungen Kraftgenies einschließlich des Werther-Dichters verabscheute, dieser Mann, in dem das Aufklärungszeitalter geradezu verkörpert scheint, kämpft einen heimlichen verzweifelten Kampf gegen ein anderes Ich. . Er kämpft gegen den heimlichen Romantiker in sich. Manche seiner Sätze hören sich an, als meditiere Novalis, als schwärme Jean Paul, als witzele verzweifelt Brentano. Er selbst hat Genialisches an sich – was ist Genie im Grunde anderes als Umspannung von Gegensätzen. . Goethe hat gesagt: 'Wo Lichtenberg einen Spaß macht, liegt ein Problem verborgen'. Hebbel hat die kongeniale Schärfe seines Geistes bewundert, Schopenhauer und Nietzsche bekannten sich zu ihm als Lehrmeister eines geschliffenen Stils. . Gerade er, der geistvolle Plauderer in Almanachen und Taschenbüchern, der witzige Deuter der Hogarthschen und Chodowiezkischen Stiche, der feine Beobachter des Alltags, der – sit venia verbo – Eckermann des Augenblicks, gerade er war im Grunde der erste Journalist Deutschlands, vor Waiblinger, Hauff und Heine. Sein Stil hat das Spritzige dessen, was wir heute Feuilleton nennen. Er ist in mancher Hinsicht ein eminent moderner Kopf. . In ihm verklärt sich ein ganzes Zeitalter: in der Luzidität seiner Geistigkeit; in ihm aber deutet sich auch bereits der Abschluß seiner Epoche, die große kommende Geisteswende an: in dem heimlichen Drang, aus dem grellen und kalten Lichte der Vernunft der Erde in uns und außer uns wieder näher zu kommen." – Nach Kayser sind drei Ausgaben bei Heinrich Blethe in Dortmund gedruckt worden: auf einfachem Druckpapier, auf Bütten und auf Vélinpapier. Das vorliegende Exemplar erinnert in der Papierqualität an das der Bibliothek Olga und Paul Hirsch (in unserem Katalog der Bibliothek Miller I, Nr. 440), das im Bericht über die Bibliothek (in: 'Philobiblon', 3. Jg., 1930) erwähnt und beschrieben wird und das trotz erkennbarer Schöpfsiebspuren als Velinpapier bezeichnet wurde. Im Folgejahr kommt Martin Domke in derselben Zeitschrift bei dem Artikel über seine eigene Lichtenberg-Sammlung auf das Hirsch-Exemplar zurück und schreibt: "Leider ist es nicht gelungen, ein zweites Exemplar der neunbändigen Vélin-Ausgabe der 'Vermischten Schriften' (1800-1806), wie sie die kürzlich hier beschriebene Bibliothek Olga Hirsch in Frankfurt a. M. enthält, zu ermitteln, geschweige denn zu erwerben. Immerhin bleibt es für die Buchgeschichte um 1800 interessant, zu erfahren, für welche Zwecke und in welcher Auflagenhöhe diese anscheinend völlig verschollene Ausgabe veranstaltet worden ist." – Schönes Exemplar, nur vereinzelt minimal stockfleckig. Mit den meist fehlenden Nebentiteln 'Physikalische und mathematische Schriften' in den Bänden VI-IX. Hübsche alte Stempel eines Gothaer Gymnasiums sowie dessen handschriftl. Bibliothekssignatur. – Goed. IV 1, 639, 9; Jung 2001 (ungenau); Rümann 650; Engelmann 342, 343, 368 und 401; Bauer 703-706; Borst

        Voyages dans l'Inde. Troisème edition.Paris, Garnier freres, 1858. 4to. With 36 tinted lithographed plates, including one map of India, and 2 wood-engraved plates. Contemporary half morocco, gold-tooled spine, gilt edges.

      Brunet V, col 432; cf. Graesse VI 433 (other ed.); not in Howgego. Third edition in the original French of the travels to India by the Russian prince Aleksey Soltykoff (1806-1859). The former diplomat adopted France as his home country, making two voyages from France by way of Egypt to India and Ceylon. The work covers both the voyages, the first from 1841 to 1843 and the second from 1844 to 1846. He gives among other things a detailed account of the Raja of Travancore and the region of Trivandrum. Soltykoff holds a sceptical view of the Englishmen, whom he considers patronizing and unappreciative. On the other hand, Saltykov himself is "lost in deepest contemplation of the mysteries of this marvellous country of India". The plates show the Indian inhabitants, processions, landscapes, architecture, ceremonies and more. Some foxing mostly in text and not affecting the illustrations, overall a good copy. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities.

        Base du Systeme Metrique Decimal, ou Mesure de L'arc du Meriedien

      07 - Paris - Baudouin 1806 - A scarce two volume first edition set of Mechain's groundbreaking work on the metric system. The first two volumes of this groundbreaking work published in 1806 and 1807. A further continuation volume was published later in 1810. As these are still in the publishers original paper bindings it is entirely possible that these were purchased at the time prior to the existence of the third volume. ÂVolumes themselves complete with 8 folding plates to volume I. An early edition in the original French, Pierre Mechain initiates the system of measurement that is prominent today, initially by measuring the meridian arc of the Earth's surface between Dunkirk and Barcelona. Hugely interesting not only for its staggering influence but for the history of its composition, plagued by the political upheaval of the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars, the work remains one of the most important ever to have been written in the fields of science and mathematics. A work ofÂsubstantial importance. Condition: In paper-covered boards. Externally, there is significant wear to the boards, joints, extremities and backstrips, with loss to both, as well as significant tenderness to hinges, resulting in partially detached boards and endpages. Internally, the pages are generally firmly bound, aside from the endpages, with many uncut, and are largely bright and clean throughout, though age-toned and creased. Overall: VERY GOOD in a fair but original binding. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Das Recht des Besitzes. Eine civilistische Abhandlung.

      Gießen, Heyer, 1806. 2., vermehrte u. verbess. Aufl. 8vo. XXXVI, 560 S. Schöner zeitgenössischer Pappband mit Buntpapierbezug und geprägtem Rückenschild. Schöner Grünschnitt. Seltene, zweite Auflage von Savigny`s Meistermonographie! - In der zweiten Haelfte des Jahre 1802 begann F. C. von Savigny (1779-1861) in Marburg mit der Niederschrift dieser grossartigen Monographie. Nach nur sechs Monaten Ausarbeitungs und Korrektur der Druckfahnen wurde die Monographie bei Heyer in Giessen 1803 ediert. Mit der Edition der Monographie zum Besitz wurde der gerade einmal 24 Jahre alte Gelehrte mit einem Schlage \"\"unter die Klassiker der Nation erhoben\"\", so die Worte seines Schuelers Rudorff, der vier Jahre nach dem Tode des Meisters die siebte und letzte Auflage vorgenommen hat. Wenige Monate nach dem Erscheinen war die erste Auflage ausverkauft. Bereits 1806 erschien eine zweite verbesserte und vermehrte Auflage, ohne Vorwort. Zwischenzeitlich wurde Savigny zum Extraordinarius ernannt, was Savigny auch auf dem Titelblatt vermerkte: Professor der Rechte in Marburg. Die naechsten Auflagen folgen mit grossen Abstand. Die dritte erst 1818 in Berlin, Savigny war dort an der Humboldt-Unversitaet eine Koryphaee, hatte die historische Rechtsschule gegruendet und war in ganz Europa unter den Romanisten an die erste Stelle gerueckt. 1842 wurde Savigny Minister in Preussen und gab seine Lehrverpflichtungen auf. Die weiteren Auflagen der grossen Monographie: 1. Auflage Giessen 1803. (XXXII, 495 S.), 2. Auflage Giessen 1806, 3. Auflage 1818 (XXXX, 602 S.), 3. Auflage 1818 (XXXX, 602 S.), 4. Auflage 1822 (=XL, 539 S.), 5. Auflage 1827 (XXXXVIII, 624 S.) und 6. Auflage 1837 (LXXII, 688 S.), 7. postume, von Rudorff betreute Ausgabe Wien 1865 (VIII, 765 S.). First great writing by the then outside lecturer at Marburg University, which established the fame of Savigny throughout Europe in one fell swoop. The work embodied practically the perfection of German legal writing in the 19th century! A seminal piece of writing by the legal scholar who was only 24 years of age at the time of the first printing in 1803.\" Versand D: 2,00 EUR

        A Treatise on the Diseases and Organic Lesions of the Heart and Great Vessels. Translated from the French, by C.H. Hebb

      FIRST ENGLISH EDITION (the first edition in English was published in Philadelphia the previous year) of Corvisart?s classic work, the first ?comprehensive and systematic treatise on diseases of the heart? (the preface) in the English language.?Corvisart founded clinical cardiology and introduced percussion into the clinic after translating Auenbrugger?s book. He classed cardiac enlargement as active or passive aneurysm of the heart, and recognised the purring tremor as a sign of valvular obstruction but did not listen to the heart. His Essai was the first treatise on heart disease to conform to the pattern of a text-book and deal systematically with pericarditis, myocardial disease, carditis and aneurysm. He was physician to Napoleon and a reputed bon viveur The first edition of Corvisart was written by Horeau from lecture notes, but later editions were by Corvisart himself? (Evan Bedford Catalogue).See G&M 2737 (first edition, in French, of 1806): ?Corvisart really created cardiac symptomatology and made possible the differentiation between cardiac and pulmonary disorders.?Bedford catalogue 364: ?Hebb?s translation of the second French edition, now very rare.? This edition is much rarer than the French original or the American edition. See also Willius & Keys, Cardiac Classics, pp. 279-290, and Lilly, Notable Medical Books, 159.8vo, pp. xx, xxxvi, 404.

Gilt lettered red leather title/author spine labels. 8vo, xx,290pp. Bebound without binder's ticket, and without original pre/postlims. First original leaf is half title, then frontis, title page, advertisement (with errata on verso). Last text page states "THE END" and "C & R Baldwin, printers New Bridgestreet, Blackfriars". Same printer's credit on half title verso, but with London, not Blackfriars. Frontis's extreme bottom margin states: "Nov 1st, 1805, by J Murray", tho facing title page dated 1806. Text block had been trimmed a small amount when rebound. Text quite nice, collated complete. Few turned corners but no tears or chips, however small, EXCEPT half tp fore edge with few shallow chips. Next page, frontis, has one 1/4" closed tear. Scattered light foxing. No aging, thumbprints or food stains. Last 60 pages damp stained at extreme top front corner. "Katharine Browningg 1806" neatly inked on half tp. The 2nd "g" is not a misprint on my part. Very scarce, Worldcat lists copies in four libraries. "Google" finds none, nor any mention of one having been listed or sold. ABPC lists three copies sold in last 100 years, two recently, a 3rd in the 60s. This copy the source for the Fort Niagara 1998 reprint by Professor R. Arthur Bowler of the University of Buffalo whose copy of the 1998 reprint included. A book review of the reprint states Bowler himself owned an 1806 1st ed. Reprint's preface states that the 1806 came into his hands from his mother about 1978, but he'd no idea how long his mother had had it. He states it had been held together with a rubber band, so the rebind likely dates to 1998. VG book in FINE rebind. R. Arthur Bowler bookplate inside cover. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Inocêncio V, 324; XVI, 71: ?LUIS DA SILVA PEREIRA OLIVEIRA, Cavalleiro da Ordem de Christo, Formado em leis pela Universidade de Coimbra, Corregedor da comarca de Miranda do Douro, Socio da Academia Real das Sciencias de Lisboa, etc. etc. N. em Fontellas, e m. ao que posso julgar entre 1807 e 1812.

Pedro de Lencastre, etc. Lisboa, na Offic. de João Rodrigues Neves 1806. 4.o de XII 345 pag., e mais tres no fim com a errata. Posto que esta compilação perdesse muito do seu mérito e utilidade em razão das alterações trazidas pela nova forma do governo representativo, e pela abolição da maior parte dos antigos privilégios, decretada pela carta constitucional, nem por isso deixa de ser ainda agora interessante e curiosa. Os exemplares que em pequeno numero aparecem uma ou outra vez no mercado, têm corrido por preços entre 480 e 720 réis; não tem ido muito alem de 900 réis. Está assim marcado no catalogo do livreiro João Pereira da Silva'. Location/localizacao: SDC-1-1-A-1
