        Dei Sepolcri. Carme.

      Brescia, per Niccolò Bettoni, 1807.In-folio (250x185mm), pp. 29, (3) [compreso il privilegio], legatura novecentesca in mezza pelle marrone e angoli, dorso a nervi rilevati con titolo in oro. Esemplare molto fresco, esente da bruniture, con i margini ridotti. Prima edizione, rarissima, di una delle opere più significative della letteratura italiana; l'edizione, impressa con straordinario nitore tipografico, ebbe una tiratura di 103 copie su carta forte. "Questo carme è la prima voce lirica della nuova letteratura, l'affermazione della coscienza rifatta, dell'uomo nuovo... Ci è qui fuso inferno e paradiso, la vasta ombra gotica del nulla e dell'infinito: il tutto in una forma solenne e quasi religiosa, come di un inno alla divinità", scrisse il De Sanctis cogliendo splendidamente la sensibilità già romantica che impronta il carme, scritto in risposta ai "Cimiteri" pindemontiani dopo le disposizioni napoleoniche dell'editto di Saint-Cloud del 1804, che aveva imposto di seppellire i morti al di fuori delle mura cittadine. Ottolini, 119. Acchiappati, I, 40: "Elegante ed accuratissima edizione... mirabilmente nitida... cui Bettoni.. ha profuso il meglio di sé". Mazzolà, 27: "Rarissimo". Gamba, 688. Cfr. Giovanni Biancardi - Alberto Cadioli, Dei Sepolcri. Edizione critica. Milano, Il Muro di Tessa, 2010.

      Paris, Rémont, 1807.2 voll. in-8° (200x128mm), pp. XII, 788; (4), 674; legatura del tempo p. pelle marrone marmorizzata con dorsi lisci ornati di titoli in oro su tasselli rossi, filetti e decori floreali in oro. In fine del secondo vol., 20 tavv. f.t. incise su rame "en taille-douce" ed in fine coloritura acquerellata coeva raffiguranti numerose piante officinali. Ex-libris del tempo del noto medico Jean Baptiste Daillan, autore fra l'altro di una "Dissertation sur la fièvre bilieuse" (1819). Un restauro alla cuffia superiore del secondo vol. Normali fioriture e bruniture. Ottima copia. Ristampa ottocentesca (nella revisione e con le aggiunte del Morelet) di questo celebre dizionario, ordinato alfabeticamente, pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1698 e complementare alla "Pharmacopée Universelle", costituente, con esso, una delle più estese trattazioni farmaceutiche edite a cavallo tra Seicento e Settecento. Il Lemery (Rouen, 1645-Parigi, 1715) studiò medicina, chimica e farmacologia a Montpellier e a Parigi e, in virtù della sua grande competenza, fu autorizzato a praticare la medicina ancor prima di conseguire il diploma. Insegnante di chimica e farmacista a Parigi, dovette abbandonare la propria attività a causa della propria fede calvinista. Riparato in Inghilterra, si convertì convenientemente al cattolicesimo, cosa che gli consentì il ritorno a Parigi e la ripresa della precedente attività La sua pratica farmaceutica gli permise di compiere significativi esperimenti chimici sulle basi dei sali e le proporzioni degli acidi riassunte nell'importante "Cours de Chimie" del 1675, in cui l'acume dello sperimentatore è bizzarramente frammisto a teorie mediate da Paracelso e a credenze alchemico-iatrochimiche affatto fantastiche.

        Nouvelle methode pour la resolution des equations numeriques

      Courcier Paris: Courcier, 1807. Budan de Boislaurent, Ferdinand F. D. (fl. 1800-1853). Nouvelle methode pour la resolution des Èquations numeriques d'un degre quelconque. . . . 4to. [8] 86 [2, incl. errata]pp. Paris: Courcier, 1807. 268 x 206 mm. Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Light soiling, a few edges frayed, but very good. 19th cent. stamp of Stonyhurst College on half-title. First Edition. Announces Budan's independent discovery of what is now known as the rule of Budan and Fourier, which gives necessary conditions for a polynomial equation to have n real roots between two given real numbers. "The need for such a rule as his was suggested to Budan by Lagrange's Traite de la resolution des equations numeriques (1767). . . . Budan's goal was to solve Lagrange's problem-between which real numbers do real roots lie?-purely by means of elementary arithmetic. Accordingly, the chief concern of Budan's Nouvelle mÈthode was to give the reader a mechanical process for calculating the coefficients of the transformed equation in (x - p). He did not appeal to the theory of finite differences or to the calculus for these coefficients, preferring to give them 'by means of simple additions and subtractions.' . . . Budan's rule remains the most convenient for computation" (DSB).

Sabin 60998. - Ferguson 449. - Wantrup 78a und 79a. - Brunet 4, 503. - Nissen ZBI 3120. - Erste Ausgabe. - François Péron (1775-1810) und Louis Freycinet (1779-1842) wirkten als wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter an der von Nicolas Baudin organisierten mehrjährigen Forschungsreise. Ursprünglich vom hochbetagten Louis Antoine de Bougainville für das Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris geplant, konnte die Forschungsreise erst 5 Jahre später unter der Leitung von Baudin gestartet werden. Ursrpünglich wollten Alexander von Humboldt und Aimé Bonpland die Expedition begleiten, verzichteten aber aus finanziellen Gründen an der Teilnahme. Neben den kartographischen und naturwissenschaftlichen Aufträgen ging es der französischen Regierung auch darum, einen territorialen Anspruch auf eventuell noch zu entdeckende Gebiete des neuen Kontinentes zu stellen. Über Mauritius gelangten die Schiffe nach Timor, folgten der Südwestküste Australiens nach Tasmanien und erreichten im November 1802 Sidney, und sie waren im Juni 1803 nach der Umsegelung Australiens wieder in Timor. Der vorliegende wissenschaftliche Bericht, der, nach dem Tode des Zoologen René Maugé 1802 auf Tasmanien, von Péron verfasst wurde, gibt nur einen kleinen Teil der über 100000 dokumentierten Arten der australischen Fauna wieder. Das Werk beschreibt, als eine der ältesten Quellen, die Lebensweise der australischen Ureinwohner. Péron verstarb 1810 bei der Arbeit zum zweiten Band des Forschungsberichtes an Tuberkulose. Das Werk wurde von Louis Freycinet, der in der französischen Marine das Kartendepot verwaltete, beendet. Weder Péron noch Freycinet erwähnen in ihren Berichten den Leiter der Forschungsreise Nicolas Baudin. - Die von Freycinet vermessene Karte gilt als eine der ersten exakten Wiedergaben des Kontinentes. - Die Tafeln mit Ansichten von Timor, Sidney (2) und Tasmaniens gehören zusammen mit den ethnologischen, zoologischen und botanischen Tafeln zu den wichtigsten ikonografischen Darstellungen Australiens. - Mit dem schönen Porträt von Péron, wenige Tage vor dessen Tode fertiggestellt, als Frontispiz. - Die beiden grossen mehrfach gefalteten Karten in den Falzen alt mit Papier verstärkt, trotzdem mit 2 Papierduchbrüchen. Papier vereinzelt leicht stockfleckig oder gebräunt. Einband von Band 2 mit kleiner Druckstelle auf dem Vorderdeckel. - Schönes, breitrandiges Exemplar. - First edition. - François Péron (1775-1810) and Louis Freycinet (1779-1842) acted as scientific assistants on the perennial discovery voyage organised by Nicolas Baudin. Originally planned by the very aged Louis Antoine de Bougainville for the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris, the voyage was undertaken 5 years later under the direction of Baudin. At the beginning, Alexander von Humboldt and Aimé Bonpland wanted to participate in this expedition but disclaimed to do so for financial reasons. Besides cartographic and scientific research, the French government was interested in discovering unknown regions of this new continent and to claim it for itself. The ships reached Timor through Mauritius and followed the south-west coast of Australia in direction of Tasmania. They reached Sidney in November 1802 and arrived in Timor in June 1803 after having circumnavigated Australia. The present scientific report, which was written by Péron after the death of the zoologist René Maugé in 1802 in Tasmania, depicts only a small part of the more than 100000 documented species of the Australian fauna . The work also describes, as one of the oldest sources, the life of the Australian Aborigines. Péron died of tuberculosis in 1810 while working on the second volume of this scientific text, which was then was completed by Louis Freycinet, who was responsible of the French Hydrographic office. Péron nor Freycinet mention the name of the leader of the expedition Nicolas Baudin. The map drawn by Freycinet is considered as one of the first exact ones of the Australian continent. The plates with views of Timor, Sidney (2) and Tasmania belong, together with the ethnological, zoological and botanical plates, to the most important iconographic descriptions of Australia. With the beautiful frontispiece portrait of Péron, made shortly before his death. Both large folded maps are consolidated with paper, but with 2 crease fold marks. Paper sporadically lightly foxed and browned. Binding of volume 2 with dent on the front cover. - Nice copy with wide margins. [11 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

With plans for stables and dog-kennels; to which are added, designs for labourers' cottages and small villas. The whole adapted to the use of country gentlemen about to build or to alter.

      4°, 26 S (Text), 22 Kupferstich-Taf., Kart., Rücken im Stil der Zeit fachmänisch erneuert, Papier min. gebräunt, schönes Exemplar. Erste Auflage. John Lugar (1772/3-1855), architect, was the son of a Colchester carpenter. He established himself in London ca. 1799, and exhibited at the Royal Academy from that date on; in due course he developed a very widespread practice as a country-house architect, which extended to Scotland and Wales as well as throughout much of England. His first book of designs, which helped bring his name to public attention, was his 1805 Architectural sketches for cottages, rural dwelling, and villas. Lugar was a practitioner of the Picturesque after the manner of John Nash and Humphry Repton, working in a wide variety of architectural styles including the 'Grecian', the Tudor Gothic, and that of the cottage ornée as well as the castellated. He also served as county surveyor for Essex from 1812 to 1816, and became a freeman of Colchester in 1812. (Thanks for information to Mr. John Dury, Essex).

Bekannt ist Zay v.a. wegen seines schriftstellerischen Werks, insbesondere wegen der im Volksmund als 'Schuttbuch' (1807) bekannten Beschreibung des Goldauer Bergsturzes von 1806. Zay war mit zahlreichen Persönlichkeiten der damaligen Eidgenossenschaft befreundet, mit denen er in regem Briefkontakt stand. Zay zeigte sich offen für aufklärerische Postulate in seinem Kanton (Volksbildung, medizinische Versorgung), trat aber keiner Gesellschaft bei." (J. Auf der Maur, in: HLS).

        [Plums] Red Magnum Bonum, Blue Perdrigon Plum, Le Royal Plum, Whaite Magnum Bonum [Pl. XVII]

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1807. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition.16 x 12 1/8 inches. 22 1/2 x 18 1/4 inches. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art.As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath.'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf.Great Flower Books (1990) p.81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra RaphaelOak Spring Pomona 40a.

        Histoire naturelle des oiseaux de l'Amérique septentrionale, contenant un grand nombre d'espèces decrites ou figurées pour la première fois

      Paris: chez Desray, 1807-[1808]. 2 volumes, folio. (21 5/8 x 13 1/2 inches). Uncut. 131 etched plates after J.-G. Pretre by L. Bouquet, printed in colors by Langlois and finished by hand, extra-illustrated with a double-page engraved map of L'Amerique Septentrionale (as usual, plate number 42 from an Atlas Universel). Contemporary red morocco, covers with border of gilt fillets and a dog-tooth roll, spines in six compartments with double-raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt tooling and the space between each pair of bands with a narrow onlay of black morocco, lettered in gilt on labels in the second and third compartments, gilt turn- ins, marbled endpapers. A fine uncut wide-margined copy of the first edition of this classic of American ornithology. The work contains descriptions of many North American birds, some of which predate those of Alexander Wilson. Vieillot, along with Wilson, was a pioneer in a new kind of ornithology in which birds were no longer assessed as specimens and skins but studied as living organisms within their environment. "Louis Jean Pierre Vieillot was one of the more discerning ornithologists who gave particular study to female, immature and seasonal plumages" (Allen). The plates bear all the hallmarks of the great French natural history books of the first two decades of the 19th century. The plates are individual works of art, whilst also being scientifically-accurate pictorial documents of the highest order, and they are, invariably, carefully observed and beautifully printed. Allen 549-552; Anker 515; Fine Bird Books (1990) p.112; Nissen IVB 957; Ronsil 3030; Yale/Ripley p.300; Zimmer p.654.

First edition and a very pretty complete set of this rare and important publication. "Founded in 1807 by Berthollet and Laplace, the Société d'Arcueil was named after the suburb of Paris where they lived. Other members of this small group were Arago, Bérard, Biot, Chaptal, De Candolle, Collet-Descotils, Dulong, Gay-Lussac, Humboldt, Malus, and Thénard. The society met biweekly and was visited by Berzelius, Davy, Wollaston, and other famous chemists. These memoirs contain many papers of great scientific importance, notably Gay- Lussac's Sur la combinaison des substances gazeuses (Vol. II, pp. 207-234), which enunciates the law named after him. One of Dulong's memoirs describes his discovery of nitrogen trichloride, an unstable liquid that exploded, costing him an eye and three fingers. An important memoir by Malus contains the discovery of the polarization of light by reflection."-Neville, I, p. 42. Pretty sets of this book are distinctly uncommon today. From the Haskell F. Norman library. ❧ D.S.B., II, 74. Duveen. pp. 25-26. En Français dans le Texte 215. Partington, III, p. 499 & IV, p. 79. Sparrow, Milestones of Science, 182. .
