        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("W. G. Becker").

      Dresden, 18. II. 1806.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Herzlichen Dank für Deine gütige Sorgfalt und Bereitwilligkeit mir gefällig zu seyn! Es freut mich, daß der liebe brave Böhm, dem ich herzlich gut bin, mir den Amor von Mangs stechen will [...] Wenn ich Seydelmanns Zeichnung bei Dyk erwähnte, so geschah es des herrl. Ausdrucks wegen, der in beiden Kupfern (unter uns gesagt) doch nicht ganz gelungen ist. Bause hat ihn zweimal gestochen, für Dresden u. für Dessau. Wenigstens wünschte ich, daß H. Böhm die Zeichnung sähe. Das Format zum Titelkupfer zum Taschenbuch ist etwas größer, als zu den übrigen Kupfern, welches auch besser für die Darstellung ist [...]". - Wilhelm Gottlieb Becker war seit 1795 Inspektor der Dresdener kurfürstlichen sächsischen Antikengalerie und des Münzkabinetts und erhielt 1805 die Aufsicht über das "Grüne Gewölbe" und den Titel eines kgl. sächsischen Hofrats. "Becker schrieb Lyrik ('Gedichte an Elisen', 1775), übersetzte u. a. Dandre Bardons 'Costume der ältesten Völker' (4 Hefte, 1776/77) und war Herausgeber einiger Periodika, darunter 1794-1814 des 'Taschenbuchs zum geselligen Vergnügen'. Er war ein Verfechter des englischen Landschaftsgartens in Deutschland. Sein kunstgeschichtliches Hauptwerk 'Augusteum. Dresden's antike Denkmäler enthaltend' (3 Bde.) erschien 1804-11" (DBE).

      Quedlinburg: 1806. 8vo (171 x 105 mm). [iv], 107 pp. Contemporary brown speckled paper boards, edges sprinkled red.***Only edition of a methodical guide for the German lady of the house, with instructions on domestic and personal care from the pantry to the boudoir. 216 short chapters arranged by subject in twelve parts, helpfully indexed at end, treat the pickling and preservation of foodstuffs; recipes for beverages, mainly alcoholic and stimulant (these include a number of unappetizing coffee substitutes); methods for cleaning various materials (lace, silk, colored clothes) and household objects (mirrors, silver, giltwood); the manufacture of cleaning supplies and other household objects (candles, starch); and bodily hygiene and feminine beauty. Cooking is not included: the publisher’s preface explains that the volume supplements his previously published cookbook (cited as Neuestes allgemein verst?ndliches Kochbuch, date unknown, no copies located). The final two parts of the Wirthschaftsbuch -- a distant descendant of the book of secrets -- are devoted to health, popular medicine, ointments and cosmetics, and include remedies for the aggravations of bad breath, stomach cramps, warts, and a wan complexion, as well as instructions for artificial resuscitation and for emergency treatment in cases of hypothermia and poisoning, and solutions for other less pernicious aggravations. The work may have been compiled by the publisher Friedrich Joseph Ernst, who specialized in works of popular medicine, practical treatises on subjects of local interest (beer brewing, the fabrication of fruit wine), and works of interest to women, including a dissertation on the beauty of the bosom.Fine copy. Rare: only the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin copy located in KVK; that copy lost in the war; not in Holzmann-Bohatta.

        An essay on the principle of population; or, a view of its past and present effects on human happiness; with an inquiry into our prospects respecting the future removal or mitigation of the evils which it occasions

      London: J. Johnson. 1806. Third edition, 2 vols., 8vo, pp. xvi, 505, [1], [60]; vii, [1], 559; later full brown calf, preserving the original red morocco labels and adding new black morocco numbering pieces; small chaff marks at the bottom of the spine of vol. 2; generally very good. First published anonymously in 1798. The principle argued by Malthus was that population increases in a geometrical ratio, and subsistence in an arithmetical ratio, and that "population is necessarily limited by the 'checks' of vice and misery … [When the second edition appeared in June of 1803, it was] substantially a new book, containing the results of his careful inquiries on the continent and his wide reading of the appropriate literature" (DNB). This third edition benefits for rearrangement, the rewriting of the fourth and sixth chapters of the second book, ("on account of an error into which the author had fallen"), as well as other revisions.

        Turning and Mechanical Manipulation. Intended as a work of general reference and practical instruction, on the lathe, and the various mechanical pursuits followed by amateurs.

      FIRST EDITIONS (but second printing of volume 3) of the greatest work in English on the lathe and its accessory apparatus.Charles Holtzapffel (1806-1847), mechanical engineer and technical writer, was the son of a German immigrant, John Jacob Holtzapffel, who, in 1787, settled in London as a tool and lathe maker. In addition to a thorough training in workshop practice, Holtzapffel received a good general education and became a skilled mechanical engineer. His principal work, Turning and mechanical manipulation, was designed to fill five volumes, but he completed only three; the final two volumes were finished by his son, John J. Holtzapffel who proposed to complete the work in six volumes, but the sixth never appeared. The work was published by the family business of Holtzapffel & Co., 64 Charing Cross Road, London, which made lathes and other machines and tools. (ODNB).See Sinkankas 3008-3010, with details of the printing history. "The sheer quantity of eminently useful information and advice contained in thesevolumes makes[them] veritable gold-mines of Victorian mechanical expertise with much of the matter as useful today as it was then. Full sets, or for that matter, individual volumes, are highly prized and almost impossible to obtain." Most sets are of mixed editions or incomplete.5 volumes, 8vo. Volume 1: pp. xiv (including the initial blank), (ii), 462, (4) adverts, + 3 leaves of adverts; volume 2: pp. xx (including the initial blank), (457)-1025, (2) adverts, + 4 leaves of adverts; volume 3: (ii) blank, viii, (v), (1026)-1477, + 7 leaves of adverts; volume 4: pp. xix, (i), 592, (12) adverts, and 22 plates; volume 5: pp. xxi, (i), 652, (6) adverts, and 56 plates (3 folding). With more than 2500 text illustrations. Half-titles. Original brown ribbed cloth, sides panelled and stamped in blind, yellow endpapers, uncut. Some foxing on endpapers and first and last page of later volumes, foot of one spine and head of another worn, cracks in outer joints of volume 2, a few tiny tears at ends of spines, otherwise a fine and very clean set in its original binding.

      1806. Engraving with hand-colouring. Proof before title. Barraband's image effortlessly captures the beauty of one of the most beautiful North American birds Jacques Barraband was the finest ornithological artist of his time. The son of a weaver at the Aubusson Factory, he is first mentioned as a pupil of Joseph Malaine (1745-1809), the eminent flower painter, and is known to have worked for both the Gobelin Factory and the porcelain factory of Sèvres. His most important work was undoubtedly the 300 or so drawings that he produced for François Levaillant's three great ornithological monographs, the most spectacular of which was the Histoire naturelle des oiseaux de paradis et des rolliers... (Paris, [1801]-06). Cf. Anker 304; cf. Brunet III.1033; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p.118; cf. Nissen IVB 559; cf. Ronsil, p. 298; cf. Wood, p. 434; cf. Zimmer, p. 393.

        The Naturalist's Cabinet, or Interesting Sketches of Animal History; Illustrative of the Natures, Dispositions, Manners, and Habits, of all the most remarkable Quadrupeds, Birds, Fishes, Amphibia, Reptiles &c

      London : James Cundee, 1806 A good copy of this scarce 6 volume work bound in 3 volumes. With 58 (of 60) hand coloured plates and 6 hand coloured vignette title pages. An account of natural history based around observation and reading mixed with anecdotes and tales relating to the animal in question. The illustrator (anonymous) has then produced some extraordinary illustrations including an orang utan at the dining table, a flock of herons attacking rooks, a boxing kangaroo, and a man riding an ostrich, and a sneaking crocodile. Rev Smith refers to himself as an 'editor' rather than an author - but there are no clues as to contributors. Originally planned in 4 volumes, Vol 5 and 6 (covering fish, amphibians, insects and other invertebrates) were added in 1807. Each volume has a frontispiece, a hand coloured vignette title page, and a plain title page. According to the directions to the binder at the end of Vol 6, there should be 60 plates - this copy is lacking a frontispiece of a turkey and a plate showing a bulldog and a monkey. In contemporary full leather bindings with newer plain spines with title and volume labels. The bindings have wear to edges and corners and the odd scuff mark. Marbled endpapers and page edges. All have a bookplate of Tom Nightingale to the front pastedown and there is a signature of William Baine October 1889 to the top of preliminary blank in Vol 3. Paper quality varies - with some pages brown toned - and there is occasional spotting and light marking. The plates vary in the quality of the colouring. 2 plates and 2 pages have small repaired edge tears. Some page edges have been turned over at some point. An interesting work.

'Modern philosophy' calls logic the art of thinking, and the logician a physician of the mind. Logic consists of a so-called theoretical an a practical part. Subsequently Van de Wijnpersse deals with ideas, judgement, reasoning, and the certainty of the different forms of knowledge.

        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."

        The Warrener

      Published by Henry Morland, London 1806 - Colour printed mezzotint. In excellent condition apart from some skillfully mended tears. Image size: 17 3/4 x 23 1/2 inches. A lovely colour printed impression of Ward's idyllic print reflecting the English rural ideal, after a painting by George Morland. The term "warrener" refers to someone adept at catching rabbits in their warrens, which the man in this image has clearly done. Bringing home today's sustenance is one element of rural life that Morland worked so prodigiously to demonstrate to his more sophisticated audience. It was a world that grew increasingly foreign to the urbanized world as the 19th century approached. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.
