        Die Theorie der Parallellinien nebst dem Vorschlage ihrer Verbannung aus der Geometrie.Jena & Leipzig: Christian Ernst Gabler, 1807.

      First edition, first issue, of this extremely rare and important work on non-Euclidean geometry. Schweikart "holds an important place in the prehistory of non-Euclidean geometry... The three chief founders of hyperbolic geometry [i.e. Gauss, Bolyai and Lobachevsky] surpassed Schweikart only because of the thoroughness with which they examined specific topics in the subject" (<i>DSB</i>).<br/><br/> "While a student at Marburg, the lectures of J. K. F. Hauff had stimulated him to consider the problem of parallel lines, which provided the subject of his only publication in mathematics (1807). His approach was still completely Euclidean; but later he arrived at the beginnings of a hyperbolic geometry, which he called astral geometry. He made this advance independently of Gauss, Bolyai and Lobachevsky, as is proved by the correspondence cited by Engel and Stäckel in <i>Die Theorie der Parallellinien von Euklid bis auf Gauss</i>. The astronomer Christian Gerling, a student of Gauss, wrote in a letter to Wolfgang Bolyai, the father of János Bolyai, that in 1819 Schweikart had reported on the basic elements of his "astral geometry" to colleagues at Marburg. Schweikart also wrote on this topic to his nephew Taurinus at Cologne. Stimulated by his uncle's work, Taurinus had virtually discovered hyperbolic trigonometry; but unlike his uncle, he still believed in the sole validity of Euclidean geometry" (<i>ibid</i>.).<br/><br/> There are two issues of this work, apparently differing only in the title page. In the present issue, the title page carries the date 1807 and a comma follows the word 'Parallellinien'; in the second issue, the title page is dated 1808 and is without the comma. We know of no other obvious textual differences between the two issues. Poggendorff lists only the 1808 issue. We have located four copies (UCL, Basel, Kiel and Leipzig), all dated 1807. <br/><br/> R. Bonola, <i>Non-Euclidean Geometry</i>, 1955, pp. 75-77 (mentioning only the 1807 issue); D. M. Y. Sommerville, <i>Bibliography of Non-Euclidean Geometry</i>, 1911, p. 15 (mentioning both issues).. 8vo (198 x 120 mm), contemporary and unrestored half-calf, pp. [2], [1] 2-138 with five folding plates of geometrical diagrams, and excellent copy of this extremely rare and important book

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.CONDITION: Contemporary ¾ Leather with mottled boards and gilt lettering to spine.

        Some Account of New Zealand; particularly the Bay of Islands, and surrounding country; with a description of the Religion and Government, Language, Arts, Manufactures, Manners and Customs of the Natives, &c &c

      London: J. Murray, 1807. Octavo, with a frontispiece and two plates; ex-parliamentary library with a blind stamp to the dedication leaf, preliminaries thumbed with small marginal water-stain affecting the title-page; overall a very good uncut copy in later half calf with black label. The first separately published book on New Zealand. The first book on New Zealand: very scarce in any form, this is an example of the rare, preferred issue with the "tiki" plate coloured.Although New Zealand had been visited by Cook, the French navigator Marion du Fresne, William Bligh and dozens of sealers, timber gatherers and whalers, it was John Savage, a surgeon who arrived in New South Wales in 1803 (and who introduced vaccination to the colony), who would write the first account.Savage travelled to New Zealand in 1805 as surgeon on a returning convict ship: they spent two months in the Bay of Islands (his book includes sailing directions into the Bay of Islands) and returned to England in 1806. In the manner of other early visitors to the Pacific Savage took back a "specimen" - a Maori named Moehanga (Moyhanger), the first New Zealander to visit England. Much of Savage's text is devoted to Moehanga both on the voyage back to England and their stay in London: 'The coach gave him great satisfaction. I asked him how he liked our present situation: he replied, Piannah wurrie nuenue yaieda - Very good house, it walks very fast... Noise or scolding he very much disliked...'.The first illustrations of New Zealand published in Cook's official accounts of his explorations in the Pacific had been drawn primarily from a scientific perspective. Between the British and French wave of eighteenth-century exploration and the post-1816 publications of the Missionary societies, there were only a handful of images published. John Savage himself drew the three illustrations that were prepared as lithographs for his book. These include "A New Zealand deity" or "tiki" which in this copy is found coloured in green. According to Hocken only a few copies contain this handcoloured version of the plate.Savage's rare and important book gives a remarkably interesting first-hand account of the language, manners, arts, government and customs of New Zealand before white settlement.

        A reply to the Essay on Population by the Rev. T.R. Malthus

      In a series of letters. To which are added, extracts from the Essay; with notes.This was the young Hazlitt's attack on Malthus's Essay on the principle of population. "Malthus's theory was based on self-interest, so in attacking it Hazlitt was applying the principles of his own Essay* on disinterestedness to the political sphere." [Jonathan Bate in ODNB]."Hazlitt's spirited Reply to Malthus consists of five Letters, the last of which is much the longest. The first three shorter Letters had been published on March 14 and May 16, 1807, in Cobbett's Political Register, and the rest of the material was added in the book, which was announced for publication in the Edinburgh Review for October 1807. The book was probably a failure at the time, though it was used in later publications both by Godwin and de Quincey, much to Hazlitt's annoyance (Life, pp.321, 364). Hazlitt himself reprinted some extracts from it in his Political Essays, published in 1819, and there remarked in a footnote (p.424): 'The above article is taken from a Reply to Mr Malthus, one of my very early Essays, the style of which is, I confess, a little exuberant, but of the arguments I see no reason to be ashamed'.

        THE BUTTERFLY'S BALL and the Grasshopper's Feast.

      15 engraved, unnumbered leaves, printed on one side only, followed by a blank leaf. Original printed wrappers with vignettes of a butterfly and grasshopper to upper cover. The upper cover announces that this is 'A New and Improved Edition, with New Plates.' But this is in fact the original edition with the original illustrations after William Mulready, not the newly illustrated edition of 1808. Presumably this is another example of publishers using old and new stock. Booklist on lower cover which includes an announcement for the publication 'shortly' of The Lobster's Voyage to the Brazils.,' which was first published in 1808. A very nice, clean copy of an early edition. Moon 725.

        Voyages and travels in various parts of the world, during the years 1803, 1804, 1805, 1806, and 1807.

      Lacking the frontispiece, but with half - titles to each part present. Later quarter calf and marbled boards with red morocco spine label; interior browning with the occasional stain, marginal loss to upper corners of leaves M3, M4, and Z4, and a light damp stain affecting the last few signatures. First American edition (a reprint of the first English translation published in London, 1813 - 14). In 1803, Adam Johann Ritter von Krusenstern set out from Kronstadt, Russia on what would become the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe. Langsdorff accompanied the expedition as a naturalist and physician, but parted ways with the crew in 1805 upon reaching Kamchatka - a peninsula in far eastern Russia - continuing on to explore the Aleutian Islands and Alaska. In 1806 he sailed from Sitka to the Spanish presidio at San Francisco. He provides detailed descriptions of the region (the original German edition of 1812 actually included a plate that is the first published view of San Francisco) and of his meeting with commandant José Argüello. The visit resulted in the famed romance between Count Nikolay Rezanov of the Russian - American Company, who had traveled with Langsdorff, and Concepción de Argüello, the Spanish commander?s daughter, immortalized in literature by Bret Harte, Gertrude Atherton, and others throughout the years. In addition to his descriptions of these places, Langsdorff also includes accounts of Brazil, Japan, Hawaii and Alaska. ?Langsdorff?s account is rich in descriptions of the peoples and cultures visited, and his descriptions of the Marquesans is particularly important and has become something of a classic? (Hill). The section on the vocabulary of various Ainu tribes is also of great interest. Langsdorff (1774 - 1852) was a German - Russian naturalist who trained in both medicine and natural history in Germany. Langsdorff was responsible for the eventual founding of Fort Ross by the Russian - American Company in 1812. Langsdorff and Rezanov, successful in obtaining supplies, returned to Sitka and then proceeded to Siberia and then overland to St. Petersburg. Langsdorff was thereafter made consul general of Russia in Rio de Janeiro and later led an expedition on the Amazon with a team of scientists. Though he was unable to complete the journey due to a serious illness, the team managed to collect a vast array of specimens and gather a wealth of information about the various tribes that they encountered. Their findings remain at the Academy of Sciences at St. Petersburg today.

Clean, unmarked pages with tanning. Provence: Copy of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. BMC. William Tennant was the chaplain for the East Indian Company. His treatise gives a great comparison of Europe history and government to that of the Mogul Empire and the various princes prior to British colonization. He attempts to show how British customs can work in India, based on historical and personal observations, to prevent a future uprising in protest against British rule. The American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) was the first American Christian missionary organization. It was created in 1810 by recent graduates of Williams College. In the 19th century it was the largest and most important of American missionary organizations. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Hours of Idleness, A Series of Poems, Original and Translated.

      S. and J. Ridge, Newark 1807 - 2 blank leaves + TP + [v]-x = Preface + [xi]-xiii = Contents + [xiv] = Errata + [1]-187 + 2 blank leaves, Crown Octavo. First Edition, First Issue. Wise Vol. 1, p. 7.The first printing of Byron's first regularly published book, his 'juvenilia' rearranged from the privately-printed Fugitive Pieces and Poems of Various Occasions. It omits twenty of the original poems and adds twelve new ones. The first edition may be distinguished from the deceptive 'large-paper' demy-octavo reprint (also the work of the ubiquitous Ridges) by the two typographical errors on p. 114, l. 4 ("thnnder") and p. 181, l. 21 ("Thc") and sometimes (but not always) by the correct numbering of p. 171 as here. A further defining point of the first edition (and the one which established the priority of this issue) is also present: the cancellation of D3 (p. 22) with the correct reading in the second line of the poem: "Those tissues of falsehood which Folly has wove" and no footnote. Watermarked "Li" and "1806" as called for. Without the half-title. Lovely 19th-century full calf binding with gilt borders to front and back covers. Spine with five bands and ornately gilt compartments. Red morocco label on spine. Turquoise blue endpapers and all edges gilt. A lovely copy of Byron's first regularly published book.

        Lauterbrunnen.

      - Feder und Pinsel in Schwarz und Aquarell, mit Bleistift undeutlich umrandet, auf chamoisfarbenem festem Velin. 24,5:24,7 cm. Links oben Bereibungen, ansonsten tadellos. Der gebürtige Schweizer Künstler war um 1807 bis 1810 Schüler von P. Birmann (1758-1844) in Basel und befreundet mit dessen Sohn S. Birmann (1793-1847). 1815-1821 weilte er in Italien, meist in Rom und Neapel. Anschließend kehrte er für kurze Zeit in seine Geburtsstadt zurück. 1823 zog er nach Paris, wo er bis zu seinem Tod leben sollte, unterbrochen von Reisen u.a. in die Schweiz und nach Dessau. Salathé trat im September 1815 eine Reise nach Italien an. Es ist belegt, daß er sich am Ende dieses Monats noch im Berner Oberland in Lauterbrunnen aufhielt (vgl. Ausst. Kat. Friedrich Salathé 1793-1858. Ein Zeichner der Romantik, Basel 1988, S. 6). Somit handelt es sich bei unserem Blatt wohl um ein Frühwerk des Künstlers. Allerdings ist schon hier Salathés sicherer Umgang mit dem Pinsel sowie die gekonnte Inszenierung von Licht und Schatten zu beobachten. Lauterbrunnen ist auch heute noch bekannt für seine Trümmelbachfälle, mehrere Gletscherwasserfälle aus dem Innern des Berges.

        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.

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&#146;, 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. Adam gehört neben P. von Hess (1792-1871) ) und W. von Kobell (1766-1855) zu den bedeutendsten Schlachten- und Pferdemalern der 1. Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Er war der Stammvater einer Malerdynastie, die bis in die dritte Generation beachtliche Talente hervorbrachte. (Zit. aus: Münchner Maler im 19. Jahrhundert. 5 Bände.

        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).
