BARROW, John
Paris: la veuve Lepetit, 1807. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. John Barrow was an 18th-century English naval historian remembered for his geography dictionaries and voyage reports. In 1793, George Macartney headed the first British diplomatic mission to China - The Macartney Embassy. This mission was established to set ports of trade between China and Britain and establish permanent relations between the two world powers. Barrow published Macartney's story and included one of the most coveted, early 19th-century atlases on China and Tartary. This book includes views of Chinese flora, architecture and engineering, portraits of Hottentot people, and even a map of the Eastern hemisphere. This 1807 French edition was translated out of English by Jean Baptiste Breton who happened to publish one of the other landmark works on the history of China.

Lewis, Morgan
New York, 1807. (New York. Jeffersonian Politics). Lewis, Morgan. HOLOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT ANNUAL ADDRESS, SIGNED, AS GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK. DELIVERED IN ALBANY, BEFORE THE NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATURE AND ASSEMBLY, JANUARY 27, 1807. Manuscript in ink. Seven leaves, 4to, rectos and versos accomplished in ink in a fine hand. Each leaf carefully hinged to heavy white stock, bound in dark blue gilt-ruled morocco, inner dentelles ornamental gilt, upper cover stamped in gilt "Gen. Morgan Lewis / Governor of New York, 1804 / Autograph Address to Legislature and Assembly." In especially fine, attractive condition. $850.00The fourth and final annual address delivered by Morgan Lewis in his first (and only) term as governor of New York. This is a fair copy with a single added insert, wholly accomplished in his fine hand, with his elegant signature. Lewis, originally a Jeffersonian Democrat, won the 1804 New York gubernatorial nomination against Aaron Burr, "after a campaign of unexampled virulence."--DAB. As a libertarian, he remained devoutly attached to the classical liberal tenets of the Radical Whigs, the English forefathers of the American Revolution. Those enlightened principles prevail throughout this address, with its call for equal justice for the poor in the courts; reform of criminal law dramatized with examples of stark iniquities in sentencing; government support for education; and a militia strong enough to avoid the need of a standing army. Lewis also addresses economic issues: the commercial rivalry between New York City and Philadelphia; the economic development of New Yor … [Click Below for Full Description]

JEFFERSON, Thomas
(Monticello, Virginia). One quarto sheet. Monticello: September 26, 1807. Third person Autograph Letter Signed by Jefferson in the body of the letter and again on the verso above the address: "free. Th. Jefferson Pr. US.", authorizing free postal delivery. Old light fold lines, one slight separation along a horizontal fold, one small tear from where the original wax seal was opened, very good. A fine handwritten letter dating from Jefferson's second term as President, sent to "His Excellency Governor Cabell, Richmond." Written by Jefferson in the third person, as was his custom for this type of formal correspondence, Jefferson refers to an enclosed "letter on the subject of Col. Larkin Smith," (not present) and authorizes Cabell "to put the letter under his cover & ask the favor of his superscribing the proper post office." A nice association between two important Virginians with two autograph signatures of Jefferson.

The account contains extensive descriptions of the harsh treatment of the sailors by their captors and the whims and cruelties of the sultan, but also of the work on the Kasbah for, as the author states, the public must not think "that we had spent our time in idleness" (p. 30). A society was set up in England to ransom the captives: 50 ultimately returned to England while 21 who had converted to Islam stayed in Morocco.One of the sailors, Thomas Troughton, wrote an extensive account of the events that went through several editions, the first in 1751. The present account mentions Troughton, who died in 1797, and "Peter Lebau" described as a former proprietor of the Turkey Slave tavern in Bricklane, who "died about twenty years ago" (that is ca. 1787), as its authors. Writing in the first person plural, they clearly state that they belonged to the first group of sailors … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPRENGEL, Kurt Polycarp Joachim.
An introduction to the study of cryptogamous plants. In letters.London, J. White, 1807. 8vo. With 10 hand-coloured folding engraved plates. Contemporary calf. VIII, 411, [1 blank] pp. First edition of the English translation of a work on cryptogams by the German botanist and physician Kurt Sprengel (1766-1833). It mostly deals with ferns, mosses and lichen, and occasionally treats some fungi. The hand-coloured plates show a total of 106 figures, mostly plant details. "Sprengel strongly promoted the microscopic examination of plants and studied their structure, developing his own theory of plant-cell formation. Although soon superseded, his ideas about the nature of cells and fibers provided an essential stimulus for further investigations by notable botanists, such as Heirich F. Link, Johann J. Bernhardi, and Ludorf C. Treviranus" (DSB).A few small spots and a marginal water stain on a few of the last plates. Binding rubbed along the extremities, hinge restored. Overall in good condition. DSB XII, p. 591-592; Stafleu & Cowan 12675; cf. Volbracht 2034 .

Traité général de musique, ou l'Art musical ramené a ses vrais principes; humblement dédié a Son Altesse Royale le Prince des Asturies ...[back wrapper:] Bayonne, Imprimerie de Duhart-Fauvet, [ca. 1807?]. Large 4to (27 x 20 cm). With 11 folding "plates" containing manuscript examples of mensural music. With no title-page, but with the letterpress title and composer's name on the front wrapper and the letterpress imprint on the back wrapper. Bound with the wrappers in contemporary gold-tooled, long-grain red goatskin morocco, gilt edges. V, 65, [2] pp. Second copy known of a general introduction to music theory, composition and performance by the Italian composer and music teacher Antonio Borghèse, printed but probably never published due to the chaos resulting from the abdications of the Kings of Spain at Bayonne (where this treatise was printed) in 1808 and the ensuing Spanish revolution and Napoleon's invasion of Spain. It was clearly supposed to have engraved plates, for the printed text refers to them parenthetically in the form "voyez planche A, no. 6" etc., but they were apparently never engraved. The author-composer therefore inserted what are probably his own autograph models for the plates, with mensural music illustrating various points in his book, some simple and brief, showing things like the forms of notes and rests of various lengths; others showing whole pages of polyphonic music with up to eight five-line staves. Borghèse attempts to cover both the art and the science of music, both theory (part 1, pp. 1-22) and practice (part 2, pp. 23-65), including both … [Click Below for Full Description]

X, 482 pp. First edition of an extensive essay on the study of philosophy, by Johann Friedrich Herbart (1776-1841), presenting philosophy not as metaphysical, but as the basis for all science. It provides a frame of thinking and a classification by means of comparison and arrangement of notions and variations; philosophy is so to speak the "grammar of thinking".

Each leaf carefully hinged to heavy white stock, bound in dark blue gilt-ruled morocco, inner dentelles ornamental gilt, upper cover stamped in gilt "Gen. Morgan Lewis / Governor of New York, 1804 / Autograph Address to Legislature and Assembly." In especially fine, attractive condition. $850.00The fourth and final annual address delivered by Morgan Lewis in his first (and only) term as governor of New York. This is a fair copy with a single added insert, wholly accomplished in his fine hand, with his elegant signature. Lewis, originally a Jeffersonian Democrat, won the 1804 New York gubernatorial nomination against Aaron Burr, "after a campaign of unexampled virulence."--DAB. As a libertarian, he remained devoutly attached to the classical liberal tenets of the Radical Whigs, the English forefathers of the American Revolution. Those enlightened principles prevail throughout this address, with its call for equal justice for the poor in the courts; reform of criminal law dramatized with examples of stark iniquities in sentencing; government support for education; and a militia strong enough to avoid the need of a standing army. Lewis also addresses economic issues: the commercial rivalry between New York City and Philadelphia; the economic development of New York State; interna … [Click Below for Full Description]

Montpellier: De l'Imprimerie de August Ricard [1807].Only Edition.

There are approximately 160 words of manuscript notes on the effects of temperature and humidity in a contemporary hand in the margins of p. 5. Rouillard, a native of Nantes, studied medicine there at the Hotel-Dieu, and continued in Brest at the Ecole de la Marine, under the direction of the celebrated Duret. He became a first class deputy naval surgeon, serving on several government vessels, assisting in several combats, and was at one point taken prisoner by the English. His captivity was not of long duration due to the intervention of a superior officer who owed his life to Rouillard. Rouillard was named surgeon-in-chief of the Vétéran, commanded by Prince Jérôme Napoleon Bonaparte, who he would later serve as first surgeon when Jérôme Napoleon was made King of Westphalia.

PORTALEONE, Abraham ben David (1542-1612)
Giovanni Battista Porta, 1807. THE EXPERIMENTAL METHOD OF FRANCIS BACON AND GALILEO FORESHADOWED 4to (207x153 mm). [8], 178, [26] pp. Collation: A-Z4 Aa-Bb4 Cc6 (some quires inverted). Printer's device on title page and author's full-page engraved emblem on l. C2v. Italic type. Woodcut headpieces and initials. Contemporary limp vellum, ink title on the spine, original endpapers preserved. On the front pastedown bookplate of Libreria Pregliasco and of Rabbi Ariel Toff, on the front flyleaf verso the manuscript pressmark "T 1807". Some mild browning, but a genuine, wide-margined copy on strong paper. FIRST EDITION (first issue, there exists a variant B with an additional bifolium Dd at the end containing a variant of the original errata on leaf A4r). The De Auro dialogi tres was written at the request of Guglielmo Gonzaga and is dedicated by Portaleone to the latter. The dialogue, whose interlocutors are Dynachrysus, the alter ego of Portaleone, and Achryuasmus, its counterpart, tries to answer the question whether gold has curative virtues or not. Portaleone doesn't keep us in suspense for very long, and gives almost immediately his point of view, which is totally negative: metals do have some power, but gold doesn't have more than the others. The false assumption of its special power is due to its beauty, its resistance, its social prestige. Many important medical authorities of the past have been misled by some features which have nothing to do with medicine: this grave misconception was caused by the absence of an experimental mentality. The discussion extends to the valu … [Click Below for Full Description]

ROWLANDSON, Thomas.
1807. Hand-coloured etched broadside with engraved text, sheet size 404 x 260mm; plate mark 280 x 215mm; image with 20 lines of lettering below including title and imprint; with the number '118' in manuscript in upper right corner; some light browning and soiling; an appealing example. Striking hand-coloured etching by Thomas Rowlandson (1757-1827), after a drawing by his friend and drinking companion, George Moutard Woodward (1795-1809), depicting an itinerant doctor, who by a subterfuge, cures an undergraduate hoaxer of his supposed maladies of lying and bad memory. The etched image shows 'the interior of an apothecary's room: jars on shelves; a counter with drawers, pestle and mortar, &c. A bust of Galen stands on the lintel of the door (r.). An alarmed undergraduate in cap and gown stands clasping his stomach. The doctor faces him triumphantly, with raised arms and holding a pill-box. His man, who wears an apron, walks off with a large box inscribed 'Anti-Fibbibus'. The (prose) inscription below the title relates that a 'College Wag' called on a 'travelling Empiric' and asked to be cured of a bad memory, and a habit of lying. He is cured by the 'gilded pill called - Pillula Memoria - Anti Fibbibus!!' The youth complains that he is poisoned with Asafœtida, the doctor answers that he speaks the truth and will never forget the medicine, so is cured' (British Museum online). Along with Hogarth, Gillray and Cruikshank, Thomas Rowlandson is at the uppermost peak of English satirical art. Amongst these masters, however, Rowlandson was the most gifted artist and his composition … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ab 1874 war er gleichzeitig Mitglied des Verwaltungsrats des Römisch-Germanischen Zentralmuseums in Mainz. Bekannt wurde er durch die Ausgrabungs-, Konservierungs- und Rekonstruktionsarbeiten, die er zusammen mit Louis Jacobi am Saalburgkastell leistete.
