        System der Wissenschaft, Erster Theil, die Phänomenologie des Geistes (System of Science, Part One: The Phenomenology of the Mind)

      Bamberg und W?rzburg: Joseph Anton Goebhardt, 1807 TP + 3 leaves = Inhalt + [I]-[XCIV] + Half-title + [3]-765 + 1 leaf = Printer's advertisements, small Octavo. First Edition.One of 750 copies printed - this one with the rarely seen printer's ad in the back. "Part One" is the only Part ever published.The first major work by the greatest of German idealists and one of the most outstanding of western philosophers. This work - one of Hegel's most interesting and difficult - consists of a three part account of the various stages of consciousness from mere sense awareness to absolute knowledge. It was here that Hegel first emphasized the famous dialectical method of thesis, antithesis and synthesis which so attracted Karl Marx to his work. Existentialists have also been drawn to this book based on its account of man as the creator of himself and because of Hegel's references here to death and to the fear of death. Contemporary ¾ Leather with mottled boards and gilt lettering to spine. Boards and leather lightly scuffed, less so than usual. Internally crisp and unmarked. Very good or better copy of this most important work in the history of philosophy.

      - Aquarell und Feder in Schwarz, auf cremefarbenem Velin, verso signiert „Albrecht Adam". 20,2:23,2 cm. Verso an den Rändern Reste einer alten Verklebung. Nach Anfängen als Konditor ging Adam 1807 nach München, um sich als Maler ausbilden zu lassen. Er wurde durch J.G. vopn Dillis (1759-1841) gefördert und avancierte zum Hofmaler Eugen Beauharnais’, dem Vizekönig von Italien und späteren Herzog von Leuchtenberg. 1809 war er am Feldzug gegen Österreich beteiligt und 1812 im Gefolge des Vizekönigs an jenem gegen Rußland. 1815 wählte Adam München zu seinem festen Wohnsitz. 1848/49 nahm er in Begleitung Radetzkys am Felszug gegen Sardinien teil. Wegen seiner qualitätvollen Pferdedarstellungen, Reiterbildnisse und Schlachtenbilder wurde er mit Aufträgen überhäuft. Nicht nur Maximilian I. Joseph und Ludwig I., waren seine Auftraggeber, sondern auch andere deutsche Landesherren und der Kaiser von Österreich, Franz Joseph.

        Tales from Shakespeare: Designed for the use of young persons

      London: printed for Thomas Hodgkins, at the Juvenile Library,, 1807. Embellished with copper-plates. In two volumes. 2 volumes, duodecimo (169 x 100 mm). Contemporary mottled full calf, spines gilt-tooled in compartments with black morocco title labels, gilt-rolled board edges, blue-speckled edges. 10 engraved illustrations in each volume (20 overall). Armorial bookplates to pastedowns of Rev Carr John Glyn (1799-1891), with his ownership stamp from Christ Church, Oxford. Rebacked with the original spines laid down, spines a little chipped, edges worn and the calf surface of the sides cracked and scratched, first blanks in both volumes slightly loosening from foot, hinges slightly cracked internally but holding firm, occasional light spotting within, very good condition overall. First edition, first impression with the imprint of the printer T. Davison on the verso of p. 235, vol. I, and with the Hanway Street address in the final adverts. The Tales were chiefly the work of Charles's sister Mary Lamb, who had previously written Mrs Leicester's School and edited Poetry for Children for William Godwin's Juvenile Library. Fourteen of the twenty adaptations were by Mary, the rest by Charles. "Originally the Tales were to be anonymous but Godwin persuaded the unreluctant Charles to have his name printed on the title-page" (St Clair, The Godwins and the Shelleys). The Tales quickly became a favourite and have been in print ever since. The first edition is very scarce (we have only ever handled one other, and only 3 copies are recorded at auction in the last 40 years), and is highly appealing in a contemporary binding.

        Nouvelle methode pour la resolution des equations numeriques

      Paris: Courcier, 1807. Budan de Boislaurent, Ferdinand F. D. (fl. 1800-1853). Nouvelle methode pour la resolution des ?quations 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 m?thode 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).

Arriving in January 1801, Turnbull stayed in the colony for some time before departing on a whaler to Norfolk Island. Further trading ventures through Tahiti, Hawaii and the Pacific (including a disastrous wrecking at the Tuamotus) proved no lasting success, and by December 1803 both Turnbull and Buyers had returned to Port Jackson.Turnbull's book was the first serious account of commerce and trade originating from New South Wales, and was influential in promoting Australia as a venue for commercial success. It was widely disseminated throughout Europe; with French, German and Swedish editions published in rapid succession.

Il reprend ici une partie de ses "Lettres sur la danse" parues en 1760 et en ajoute plus d'une vingtaine qui exposent ses théories qui ont servies de bases à l'art chorégraphique du XIXe et du XXe siècle. Jean Georges Noverre (1727-1810) a été le grand réformateur du ballet classique au profit du ballet d'action. Les livres de Noverre sont "consultés par tous les écrivains anxieux de trouver des documents authentiques sur l'histoire de la danse. D'un autre côté, tous nos grands maîtres de ballets se sont inspirés des savants conseils que cet habile artiste a su leur prodiguer, en dévoilant la science théâtrale de la danse dans ses moindres détails comme dans ses plus grands effets".

        Oriental Field Sports being a complete, detailed, and accurate description of the wild sports of the East and exhibiting, in a novel and interesting manner, the natural history of the elephant, the rhinoceros, the tiger . and other undomesticated animals .

      Edward Orme, London 1807 - (17 3/4 x 22 1/2 inches). Additional title produced in eight colours using stencils, letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. dedication to the King (verso blank), pp. [i]-ii preface, pp.1-146 text, pp.147-150 index, 1p. list of plates (verso blank). 40 fine hand-coloured aquatint plates by H. Mercke (37), J. Hamble (2) and Vivares (1), all from drawings by Howitt after designs by Williamson. (Minor creasing). Contemporary red morocco, covers elaborately panelled in gilt and blind, spine with semi-raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second compartment, the other with a repeat overall decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers Provenance: Earl of Bradford, Weston Park (armorial bookplate) First edition, early issue of "the most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence" (Schwerdt) and one of the greatest English colour-plate books: this example in a remarkable contemporary English red morocco binding. Williamson served in a British regiment in Bengal and was an avid sportsman while there. After being recalled to England, "Williamson's knowledge of wild life and Oriental sports had come to the notice of the Orme family" (Rohatgi & Parlett). The Orme's contracted with celebrated painter Samuel Howitt to prepare finished watercolours based on Williamson's original sketches during his time in India, and published the work, originally in 20 parts, between 1805 and 1807. The result was "the most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence" (Schwerdt). The work, however, is not merely a sporting book. As Williamson writes in the Preface, the work "is offered to the public as depicting the Manners, Customs, Scenery, and Costume of a territory now intimately blended with the British Empire, and of such importance to its welfare, as to annex a certain degree of consequence to every publication, that either exhibits, or professes to impart, a knowledge of whatever may hitherto have been concealed, or that remains unfolded to our view." The plates, engraved by H. Merke or J. and Vivares Hamble, display the best of early 19th century colour aquatint. Howitt and Williamson's images are vivid depictions of both the chase and the Indian scenery. Of particular note are the four plates treating elephants, described by Williamson as possessing "the energy of the horse, the sagacity of the dog, and a large portion of the monkey's cunning." The eleven plates devoted to the tiger are each riveting. The work was published to great acclaim. An 1807 issue of The Monthly Review declared: "Much entertainment for the eye, and much information for the mind will be found in this very splendid volume." The Review continues by lamenting the high cost of the work: "Twenty guineas may be a trifle in Nabob's pocket: but Nabobs are not numerous in England; and we should suppose that the sale of such a work as this cannot be very widely diffused." This no doubt contributed to the work's present-day rarity. This copy is an early issue, with pre-publication watermarks and Tooley's first state of plate XXXI (with the plate captioned "Hunting Jackalls"). The early issues of the work, generally subscriber's copies, are bound from the original parts and contain "the finest impressions of the plates" (Tooley). Subsequent editions, i.e. the second edition of 1808 and the quarto edition of 1819, are considered by Tooley as "inferior."

        A rare early-19th century peepshow depicting the Battle of Eylau (where France acquired its taste for horse meat)

      A peepshow, housed in its original box (8.75" x 6.5" x .5") bearing six hand-colored engraved panels. Entitled NAPOLEON and the battle at Eylau fought the 9th February, 1807 / NAPOLEON, et la battaille à Eylau donnée le 9 Février 1807 printed upon a pair of French tricolor flags which flank a small 1.25" x .75" window at the center which, when the top of the box is extended fully (about 28"), reveals a beautifully rendered three-dimensional battle scene. Napoleon appears on horseback (at left) in the third panel from the top. Although the outer box bears a good deal of wear including soiling and toning, the interior is as remarkably clean and bright as they day it was manufactured. The Battle of Eylau was an enormous but inconclusive battle that took place between Napoleon's Grande Armée and the Russians in East Prussia. The two day battle involved over 150,000 soldiers and resulted in approximately 20,000-40,000 casualties between the two sides. Although the French won possession of the field at the end of the day, they had failed to destroy the Russian army. Riding over the fields the next morning, Marshal Ney remarked, "Quei massacre! Et sans Résultat" ("What a massacre! And without result!"). Incidentally, it was at the Battle of Eylau where the French acquired a taste for horse meat. Napoleon's surgeon-in-chief at the battle, Baron Dominique-Jean Larry, recommended dead battlefield horses to feed starving soldiers in the field.

      Milan - The Italian Company of Classic Typography, 1807 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of Chiabrera's RhymesComplete in 3 volumesBound in quarter leather with marbled boards and gilt letteringNameplate belonging to Charles J. Bewlay of Carleton Hall to the front pastedown. Gabriello Chiabrera (1552 1638) was an Italian poet, sometimes called the Italian Pindar. As amaker of odes in all their elaborate pomp of strophe and antistrophe, master of new and complex rhythms, coiner of ambitious words and composite epithets, employer of audacious transpositions and inversions, and the inventor of a new system of poetic diction it is not surprising that Chiabrera should have been compared with Ronsard. Both were destined to suffer eclipse as great and sudden as had been their glory. Ronsard was succeeded by Malherbe and by French literature, properly so-called; Chiabrera was the last of the great Italians, and after him literature languished till the second renaissance under Manzoni. Chiabrera, however, was a man of merit, apart from that of the mere innovator. Setting aside his epics and dramas (one of the latter received the honours of translation at the hands of Nicolas Chrtien, a sort of scenic du Bartas), much of his work remains yet readable and pleasant. His grand Pindarics are dull, it is true, but some of his Canzonette, like the anacreontics of Ronsard, are exceedingly elegant and graceful. His autobiographical sketch is also extremely interesting. The simple old poet, with his adoration of Greek (when a thing pleased him greatly he was wont to talk of it as Greek Verse), his delight in journeys and sight-seeing, his dislike for literary talk save with intimates and equals, his vanities and vengeances, his pride in the memory of favours bestowed on him by popes and princes, his infinita maraviglia over Virgil's versification and metaphor, his fondness for masculine rhymes and blank verse, his quiet Christianity, is a figure deserving perhaps of more study than is likely to be bestowed on that new world of art which it was his glory to fancy his own, by discovery and by conquest. Condition: The binding are firm. There is some significantwear to the extremities including loss to the spine panels of Volumes 2 and 3, and the spine panel of Volume 1 is present but detached. There is also some bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages are bright and clean with only the odd spot, and some mild spotting to the first and last couple ofpages. Overall the condition of the books is good only due to the bindings..
