        A Dictionary of the English Language:

      London: for J. Johnson [and 39 others],, 1806. in which the words are deduced from their originals, and illustrated in their different significations by examples from the best writers. To which are prefixed, A History of the Language, and An English Grammar. In two volumes. The ninth edition; corrected and revised. 2 volumes, large quarto (280 x 214 mm). Contemporary diced russia, rebacked, raised bands within double fillet rules gilt to spine forming compartments, twin red and green morocco letterpieces to second and fourth, triple gilt rules to covers, floral roll-tool gilt to turn-ins, marbled endpapers, bound green silk page-markers. Each volume housed in a custom black cloth slipcase. Engraved portrait frontispiece by Heath after Reynolds. Tips and board-edges lightly rubbed, incisions from rebacking skilfully refurbished, small chip to vol. 1 top edge of rear board, frontispiece foxed in margins and offset to title page, very occasional mild spotting. A very good copy. With the engraved armorial bookplate of Richard Lovett to the front pastedown of each volume, possibly the noted Methodist minister and author who was appointed book editor of the Religious Tract Society in 1882, later serving as director of the London Missionary Society, writing the society's history on its centenary in 1899. Lovett had an extensive book collection, mainly comprising early English bibles, and catalogued the biblical section of the John Rylands Library before it was opened to the public in 1900. First published in 1755, Johnson's Dictionary has at various times been called "the most important British cultural monument of the eighteenth century" (Hitchings); "the only dictionary [of the English language] compiled by a writer of the first rank" (Robert Burchfield); "the most amazing, enduring and endearing one-man feat in the field of lexicography" (PMM); and the first genuinely descriptive dictionary in any language. "Johnson's writings had, in philology, the effect which Newton's discoveries had in mathematics" (Webster).

      Two vols., 8vo., xvi 505 (61) and vii (i) 559 (1)pp., complete with the two half-titles, intermittent very slight spotting and dampmarking, contemporary sprinkled calf, professionally rebacked, spines gilt with labels lettered gilt. A very good copy indeed. An important edition being the first revision after the 1803 quarto with major rewriting of chapters 4 and 6 of the second book. "The chapters which were the fourth and sixth of the second book are nearly rewritten, on account of an error into which the author had fallen in an attempt to estimate the fruitfulness of marriages and the number of the born living to be married, from the data in registers" (author's advertisement).

        Autograph Letter to Carl Maria von Weber

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph letter signed by the great Italian composer, regarded by Beethoven as the greatest of his contemporaries, to Carl Maria von Weber.  1 page, integral address leaf.  Berlin, 1806. Translated in part: "I had hope to come see you this morning as I had promised but I awoke somewhat too late, very tired. I went to find you at the Theatre where they told me you would be rehearsing.  Not having found you there, I am writing you to ask if you would give the honor of joining me for dinner this evening."<br><br>Both composers had evidently found themselves in Berlin at this time and were arranging to meet, either at the Theater itself, or at Cherubini's hotel ("l'hotel Matthieu").Cherubini was primarily in Vienna from 1805 - 1808, where his Faniska made such a success that it was deemed excessive praise to Beethoven's Fidelio to predict, as someone did, that one day it would "rank as high as Cherubini's Faniska."<br>In 1804, von Weber was appointed conductor at Breslau (now Wroclaw), and in 1806, he became musical director for Duke Eugen of Wurttemberg, gaining a reputation as an exceptional pianist. His personal life during this time remained irregular: he left his post in Breslau in a fit of frustration, was on one occasion arrested for debt and fraud, and was involved in a variety of scandals. However, he remained successful as a composer. <br><br><br><br>

        Adolphe, 1816, Edition Originale

      Treuttel, Wurtz, Colburn - Après l&#146;épopée des Cent-Jours et le triomphe des ultras, Benjamin Constant est contraint à l&#146;exil. Il se rend à Londres et décide de publier en même temps à Londres et à Paris cet ouvrage écrit à Genève en 1806, au milieu des orages de la passion tumultueuse de l&#146;auteur pour Germaine de Staël. On le considère cette oeuvrecomme le type même du roman d&#146;analyse psychologique. L&#146;auteur a publié cet ouvrage comme une « anecdote trouvée dans les papiers d&#146;un inconnu », pour montrer à quelles sombres tragédies peut conduire la sécheresse de c&#156;ur. Sous cette forme, qui lui permet de paraître détaché de ses propres passions d&#146;homme de son temps, ce partisan tenace des libertés constitutionnelles a pu confesser une désillusion amoureuse et défendre ses idées politiques avec une ferveur accrue . Trois éditions parurent à la même date : une appelée communément « édition de Londres », et deux éditions de Paris portant deux adresses différentes. « Toutes trois sont rares et très recherchées » écrit Clouzot. La première édition est celle de Colburn, en association avec Treuttel et Würtz à Paris, annoncée le 6 juin dans le &#145;Morning Chronicle&#146;. Elle est rarissime (trois exemplaires connus dans les bibliothèques publiques : la British Library, Harvard et la Taylorian Institution à Oxford). La B.n.F. ne la possède pas, mais elle a la première édition parisienne . Cette édition que je vends a été imprimée par Crapelet d&#146;après les épreuves de l&#146;édition anglaise. L&#146;éditeur français est placé avant son confrère londonien à l&#146;adresse et la mention d&#146;imprimeur est, bien entendu, différente. (Clouzot, 70-71 ; Carteret, I, 178-179 ; Talvart, III, 213 a; Rahir, Bibliothèque de l&#146;amateur, 377 ; Vicaire, II, 932). Reliure demi cuir d&#146; époque dans un état assez bon avec un dos lisse orné d&#146; une pièce de titre gravée à l&#146; or fin et des plats marbrés, intérieur en assez bon état, format in 12, 228 pages.

        Carta Esferica del paso de los Dardanelos del Mar de Marmara y del canal que conduce al Mar Negro [with large inset] Plano de la Ciudad de Constantinopla y canal del Mar Negro o Bosforo de Tracia

      1806 - Splendid Spanish-made chart of the Sea of Marmara, with a large plan of city of Constantinople. 1806. Madrid. F. Selma. 550 m x 895 mm. Minor traces of fraying to edges, else very good. As often with Spanish-made charts, this one is extremely rare; the map can be said is divided in two: the larger portion is dedicated to mapping the region of the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea, whilst the smaller one is dedicated to the city of Constantinople (Istanbul), the channel of the Black Sea or the Thracian Bosporus. As a navigational aid the chart is terrific, as it shows the depths by soundings, and names the harbors, towns, and fortifications along the coastline. The chart was commissioned by the famed Principe de la Paz Manuel Godoy y Alvarez de Faria (1767 &#150; 1851), Spanish nobleman and politician, given such title flowing the negotiation of Peace of Basel (1795), to the Spanish sailor and cartographer Dionisio Alcala, who can be considered one of the foremost cartographers and chart-makers of Spanish, having worked with Vicente Tofiño, Malaspina, and having been the first to chart Vancouver Island during the expedition in search of the Northwest Passage. One copy in the United States, at the University of South Carolina, one other copy located at the Biblioteca Nacional de España. According to OCLC. [Attributes: First Edition]

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&#146;ultima è Marengo), 1 carta geografica dell&#146;Italia a doppia pagina (opera del geografo Lorrain, eseguita da Louvet e con legende incise da Dien), 1 tav. dell&#146;Egitto (con la carta dell&#146;Italia si conclude il "Tableaux Historiques" e segue il "Prècis Historique de l&#146;expedition d&#146;Égypte"; fra la carta dell&#146;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&#146;Egitto); la numerazione riparte da p. 1 con il "Précis Historique de la campagne d&#146;Allemagne" (l&#146;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&#146;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&#146;opera rappresenta una celebrazione di Napoleone e delle sue imprese, con i testi e le tavole che descrivono le campagne d&#146;Italia, d&#146;Egitto, di Germania e di Polonia, e con una relazione dell&#146;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&#146;Italia, dall&#146;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&#146;, 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&#146;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&#146;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 Works of Alexander Pope in Verse and Prose

      London -Â J. Johnson et al 1806 - A handsomely bound complete set of theÂWorks of Alexander Pope. Pope (1688 1744) was an 18th-century English poet, best known for his satirical verse and for his translation of Homer. Famous for his use of the heroic couplet, he is the third-most frequently quoted writer in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, after Shakespeare and Tennyson. These volumes contain all of Pope's major works, includingÂThe Dunciad, Pastorals, Eloisa to Abelard, The Rape of the LockÂandÂEssay on Man. ÂThe editor, Willliam Bowles Lisle, is best known for compiling this set, publishing a ten-volume edition of the work of Alexander Pope with a sketch of his life and strictures on his poetry. His comments on the poet's life were written in a severe, even hostile spirit. Bowles's estimate of Pope as a poet gave rise to a long controversy. (ODNB)Additional material added hereÂto Pope'sÂoperaÂincludes a biography, literary criticism and excerpts from his letters. Volume I features a frontispiece portrait of Pope. With the bookplate of one E. H. Greenly to pastedown. Direct from the Regency library of Elizabeth Greenly, later Lady Elizabeth Coffin Greenly. Elizabeth Greenly, born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, was a noted and varied collector. She kept prolific diaries from 1784 until her death in 1839 which included her responses to current events and occasions in her daily life. Among the diaries many names and anecdotes of celebrities of the time appear, including Lord Byron, Marie Antoniette, Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More. She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaeology. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector. ÂThese works come directly from the sale of the Titley Court estate. Complete in 10 volumes. Condition: In calf binding with gilt detailing. Externally quite smart, there is wear to the extremties, boards, joints and backstrips, with some cracking to joints and minor strain to hinges. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and are generally bright and clean throughout, though the pages are somewhat age-toned. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Four volumes. 19th century marbled paper over flexible boards with large labels titled in manuscript to uppers. Occasional annotations. Bindings slightly worn. Minor browning, foxing and staining. In very good condition overall. "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."

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 &#150; 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 &#150; sit venia verbo &#150; 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." &#150; 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." &#150; 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.

        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.

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. Original boards (somewhat marked, edges worn, piece torn from front free endpaper), rebacked with suitable drab paper, printed paper label, uncut.
