        Unpublished manuscript on paper entitled "Historia de la Real Biblioteca de S. M. Establecida en Madrid por Felipe V. y amplificada por el Rey N.S. Carlos III. Su Fundacion, Progresos, y Estado actual hasta el presente año de 1783. Noticia de sus Bibliotecarios Mayores y de otros Individuos de ella. Catalogo razonado de las Obras que ha dado a lùz. Por D.

Small 4to (208 x 148 mm.), cont. green morocco, triple gilt fillets round sides, Spanish marbled endpapers, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. [Madrid: 1783]

      The manuscript fair copy of this unpublished account and history of the Real Biblioteca of Spain; it is written throughout in one fine calligraphic hand. The only other copy of the manuscript - it appears to be the author's holograph manuscript - is now in the Biblioteca Nacional of Spain. Hoefer (Vol. 39, col. 507) states that this text was about to be printed in 1808 but the project was abandoned because of the French invasion of the peninsula. Pellicer (1738-1806), after finishing his studies at Salamanca, was called to Madrid by Carlos III to become librarian of the Royal Library. Pellicer was already known as one of the leading antiquarians of the country. He is best known for his work on the new edition of Antonio's great bibliography Bibliotheca Hispana (1783-88), his life of Cervantes, and his Ensayo de una Bibliotheca de Traductores Españoles (1778). This finely written and handsome manuscript is divided into five chapters: 1) "De la Fundacion, principios. y primeras Constituciones de la Real Biblioteca aprobadas por Felipe V"; 2) "Del nuevo Plan, y segundas Constituciones aprobadas por el rey N.S. Carlos III"; 3) "De los Bibliotecarios Mayores que ha habido hasta este presente año de 1783"; 4) "Catalogo razonado de las Obras que se han impreso en la Real Biblioteca, en tiempo de D. Juan de Santander"; and 5) "De los demas Bibliotecarios Menores, y otros Individuos que han escrito algunas obras." Much of the information in this manuscript is not readily available in other source books. There are some wonderfully gossipy sections concerning various personalities at the Library and the difficulties experienced by the library since its foundation in 1712 by King Philip V. Fine copy. Bookplate of the Duque de Medinaceli y Santisteban.

        Faust. Eine Tragödie.

      Tübingen, 1808. Small 8vo. Contemporary full black morocco with gilt spine. A bit of wear to extremities. A bit of brown spotting and remains of wax seal to back end-paper and verso of last tex-leaf. Old owner's name to front free end-paper. ¶ The rare first edition of the first full version of Faust I, in the even rarer separate printing (i.e. not the one from the collected works), of one of the peaks of world literature, the main work by one of the greatest writers that ever lived. The first part of Faust I to appear was that in volume 7 of collected works from 1790, in which the much shorter fragment of it, entitled "Faust. Ein Fragment" appeared. In 1808, the full version of Faust I appeared for the very fist time, in the collected works and separately, as it is here. Faust II, which is very rarely read and not usually included in what we mean by Goethe's Faust, was written much later and only appeared after Goethe's death. Few other writers have been as influential as Goethe and his works were an immense source of inspiration for everything from drama and music to science and philosophy. Goethe is generally accepted as one of the most important Western thinkers and his main work "Faust" arguably constitutes the most important and influential work of world literature. "If Goethe may justly be called the last representative of the renaissance ideal of the "oumo universale", his "Faust" embodies the sum total of his poetical growth." (Printing and the Mind of Man: 298). "Faust" is probably the work for which Goethe is most famous, and this is not without reason. The novel emphasizes the strength of the individual and the right to freely investigate aspects of human and divine character. The novel also fights for man's right to determine his own destiny, and it is thus considered the first great literary work in the spirit of modern individualism. The work is also considered highly relevant to science and scientific thought, since Goethe here offers a holistic and non-analytic approach to these areas.PMM 298 (being the 1834 ed., not the real first); Hagen: 310 [D1].

        Andrew Jackson

      September 21, 1808. Manuscript Document, two pages, front and verso, 7.5" x 12.25", Hermitage, September 21, 1808, in unknown hand. Some minor losses at margins and some ink erosion, usual folds, light toning. Good condition. An account of the partnership of Jackson & Hutchings. Andrew Jackson and John Hutchings established a store at Clover Bottom in 1804. The account concerns transactions by the partnership from July 25, 1803 to November 23, 1804 with Dr. William Ward. The partners purchased a variety of goods from Dr. Ward including "ribbon", "cotton", "rope", "buttons", "needles", a "tea kettle", a "brass ink stand", "flannel", "Tobacco", "Brown Sugar", a "Ladies Hat", "a Screw auger", "thread", "Trunk", and other articles in high demand in the trans-Appalachian west. John Hutchings (d. 1817) was Andrew Jackson's onetime business partner who co-owned a cotton farm in the Alabama Territory as well as a cotton gin, distillery, and several mercantile stores in Tennessee. Hutchings had willed that Andrew Jackson be the guardian of his son in the event of his death. After he died in 1817, Jackson gained a new, 11 year-old ward and namesake, Andrew Jackson Hutchings, whom he raised as his own son just as he did with with Andrew Jackson, Jr.

        Narrative of the Expedition To The Baltic: With An Account of the Siege and Capitulation of Copenhagen; including the Surrender of the Danish Fleet. By an Officer employed in the Expedition.

      - London, Brettell for Lindsell, 1808. 8vo. Entirely uncut in the publisher's paper-backed boards with ms. title lable to spine; pp. xi, 307, two hand-coloured engraved maps; re-backed at an early state, head of spine defective, boards a little spotted, remnants of bookplate, a little offsetting from maps, even light toning to text; a good copy of a great rarity. First edition, privately published. Dedicated to William Shaw Cathcart, the military leader of the operations against Copenhagen and Danish forces, this anonymous account was 'written principally to beguile those solitary hours which fall to the lot of most military men, and to preserve a private memorial of the events which occurred during the operations in Zeeland, without any view to publication' (author's Advertisement). Besides being a blow-by-blow account of the Baltic operations, this volume contains valuable descriptions of the reaction of the population of Copenhagen to British occupation. 'In the summer of 1807 it became clear to Lord Castlereagh that the French might commandeer the Danish fleet stationed in Copenhagen. To prevent this, Castlereagh sent Admiral Gambier and Cathcart to take control of the fleet and the city. The British arrived at the end of August and immediately tried to negotiate a surrender with Major-General Peiman, the commander of Copenhagen's military forces. This proved ineffectual and by 1 September they had placed mortar and gun batteries around the city and had blockaded Stralsund, the nearest Danish port capable of assisting Copenhagen. Having strengthened their position, Gambier and Cathcart once again asked Peiman to surrender the city and the fleet. He refused and emphasized his resolution by not allowing the women and children to leave the city. The British batteries began to shell Copenhagen on 2 September. This pounding continued until 6 September and articles of surrender were signed on the next day. The British forces then took control of the citadel and arsenal and began to repair the naval vessels that the Danish had tried to scuttle … Although his Copenhagen victory had enabled the British army to impound naval supplies and vessels, the British public remained divided in its opinion of the episode. Opponents of the attack were especially appalled by the number of women and children who died in the siege.' (ODNB on Cathcart). This controversy explains why there are no immediate publications about the 1807 siege, and why this book is so rare and was published privately. The only copy in COPAC is the one in the British Library; KVK locates one further copy, in the Danish Royal Library, with only one map. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Übersetzt von Wilhelm BLANCHARD.

      bey Keilischen Buchhandlung, Köln 1808 - Köln, bey Keilischen Buchhandlung, 1808-09. 8vo. (1:) 3 Bll., 508; (2:) 537; (3:) 508; (4:) 522 S. Zeitgenössische einfache Pappbände mit geprägten Rückenschildchen und schönem marmoriertem Rotschnitt. (Ebd.-Rücken leicht angeschmutzt, sonst sehr schöner Zustand). Erste Übersetzung des legendären Kommentars "Analyse raisonnée de la Discussion du Code civil" aus der Entstehungszeit des Code civil! - Im Jahre 1800 wurde Maleville von Napoléon beauftragt, zusammen mit Tronchet, Portalis und Bigot-Préameneu den Entwurf eines Code civil auszuarbeiten. Von Napoléon war Maleville als Sekretär und Redakteur innerhalb der Kommisison beauftragt. Seine drei Kollegen beteiligten ihn aber gleichberechtigt an allen Kommissionssitzungen. Maleville betrachtete das Ius Romanum als das in Europa wichtigste und allen anderen überlegene Recht. Innerhalb der Kommission suchte er den Standpunkt des Ius Romanum bei der Ausgestaltung des Entwurfes einzubringen. Bisweilen schoß Maleville auch über dass Ziel hinaus, beispielsweise als er entgegen den Errungenschaften der Französischen Revolution, die auch die gesetzliche Gleichberechtigung der Frau forderte, die Verwirklichung des patriachalischen, römischen Familienmodells forderte. Die Paterfamilias war für ihn beispielgebend und sollte nach seinen Vorstellungen auch Inhalt des Code civil werden. In diesem Sinne lehnte Maleville auch die Ehescheidung ab, einer der großen Errungenschaften der französischen Revolution. Stark romanistisch war er auch im Erbrecht, vor allem bei der im Ius Romanum ausgeprägten grenzelosen Testierfreiheit. - Seine berühmte vierbändige "Analyse raisonnée" über die Diskussion zum Code civil im Staatsrat war ein umfassender, hochinteressanter Kommentar über das Zustandekommen, die Grundlagen und die Ausgestaltung jedes Artikels. Malleville behandelt darin in durchaus unparteiischer Weise die am umstrittensten und am kontroversest diskutierten Fragen im Entstehungsprozeß des Code civil. In der Befolgung der Legalordnung des Code civil zeigt Maleville an den einzelnen Gesetzen auf, warum die eine oder andere Meinung bei der Ausgestaltung des Gesetzes den Vorzug erhalten hat. Er fügt an, warum die eine oder andere Lücke geblieben ist und vor allem, auf welche Weise die geltende Gesetzesregelung vom Ius Romanum auf der einen Seite und dem Gewohnheitsrecht (droit coutumier) auf der anderen Seite hergeleitet bzw. abgewichen ist. - Maleville (1741-1824) war bis zum Jahre 1770 Advokat am Parlement zu Bordeaux, zog sich dann aber nach Domme im Pérogard zurück. Die französische Revolution drängte ihn wieder ins öffentliche Leben zurück. Dort übernahm er Aufgaben in der Justiz und in der französischen Gesetzgebung. Maleville war ein Parteigänger der Revolution und wurde im Jahre 1790 zunächst Mitglied, später Direktor des Direktoriums im Département Dordogne. Ein Jahr später wurde er als Richter an das Kassationsgericht zu Paris, dem obersten französischen Gericht, berufen. Dort wirkte er als Richter bis 1794. Von 1795 bis 1799 wurde er in den Ältestenrat berufen. Im Jahre 1800 schloß er sich Napoléon Bonaparte an, der ihn erneut zum Richter am Kassationsgericht ernannte, wo er bald Präsident der zivilrechtlichen Abteilung wurde. Im Jahre 1806 wurde er zum Senator ernannt und in den Grafenstand erhoben, wandte sich später jedoch von Napoléon ab. Er stimmte für die Entlassung Napoléons und der Rückkehr der Bourbonen zu. Nachdem er sich mit der Restauration verbündet hatte, wurde er 1814 zum Pair und 1817 zum Marquis ernannt. (Ebd.-Rücken leicht angeschmutzt, sonst sehr schöner Zustand). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

With the sentiments which you entertain of your official duty in such a case, to which I attach the highest degree of consideration & respect, I would not have presumed that you would have expressed any opinion on the subject. By stating your sentiments on the journal of the council, in the manner you have done, you afford a very strong proof of your devotion to principle & friendship for me.In returning to my country after so long an absence from it, during which, I was engaged in the discharge of the most extensive, complicated and difficult duties, I have experienc'd the greatest possible consolation, from the acception which has been given me by my fellow citizens. To the executive & legislative bodies of this commonwealth I have been made known more intimately by the course of my publick service ... I am dear sir with my best wishes for your welfare very sincerely yours, Jas. Monroe."

        Théorie des quatre mouvemens et des destinées générales. Prospectus et annonce de la découverte.

      Leipzig [i. e. Lyons, Pelzin], 1808. - 8vo. (4), 425, (3) pp. With large folding table "Tableau du cours du mouvement social". Slightly later calf-backed marbled boards, flat back lettered in gilt, edges marbled to match boards. First edition of the author's first book, containing the essence of his principle of Association (or the union between men), driven by universal human passionate attraction but hampered by the forces of civilization. According to Fourier, an important precursor to Marx, social harmony can only be based upon this principle, and he was convinced that material abundance would be its result. The application of this principle by his followers in various utopian communes was little successful, but the impact of Fourier's profound insight into human nature and civilization on social and socialist theory can hardly be underestimated. While Marx and Engels severely criticized Fourier's thought as unhistorical, they praised him for his attacks on 19th century moralism as "impuissance en action". - First and last leaves mildly duststained; marginal edge flaws to last and another leaf without affecting text.

        Ramsgate, with a View of the new Light-House

      Published by I. & W. Macgavin, No. 107 New Bond Street, London 1808 - Coloured aquatint. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of a small brown mark in the lower left corner of plate. Slight creasing through center of image. Image size: 13 1/2 x 20 inches. A pretty view of Ramsgate Pier, from Philippe Loutherbourg's great work "Picturesque Scenery of Great Britain." This impressive aquatint is plate two of Phillip Jacques Loutherbourg's seminal work "Picturesque Scenery of Great Britain." This accomplished text is comprised of six large aquatint views engraved after Loutherbourg's acclaimed paintings. The work, which was first engraved in 1801 by J. C. Stadler, was later re-engraved in 1808 by J. Hill. Reminiscent of Rowlandson's superb paintings, this image depicts the stormy docks of Ramsgate pier. While a group of hardy sailors converse at ease, a party of three figures are battered by the fierce winds that beat the shoreline. The son of a court painter in Darmstadt, the versatile artist Philippe Jacques Loutherbourg was born in Fulda, Germany and was a pupil of J. H. Tischbein and Carle Vanloo and Francis Casanova the elder in Paris. His romantic landscapes, battle scenes, portraits, and biblical subjects were highly esteemed and lauded by influential colleagues such as Diderot. He frequently exhibited at the Salon and became a venerated member of the Académie Royale in 1767. In 1771, he moved to England, where he was employed as the principal scenery designer at London's Drury Lane Theatre. His creative and minutely detailed sets revolutionized the genre of scene painting, and he soon began dabbling in costume design. Loutherbourg once again astounded contemporaries in 1782 with his pioneering invention of the "Eidophusikon," a novel variety of moving panorama that was accompanied by music. His substantial and varied oeuvre also included book illustrations and a series of aquatints of British scenery that was published in 1801 and 1805. Aside from a brief trip to Switzerland in 1782, he remained in London for the duration of his life and became heavily engrossed in mysticism. Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland, in Aquatint and Lithography 1770-1860 , no.6, plate 2.

        Ueber Papier und einige andere Gegenstände der Technologie und Industrie.

      Duisburg u. Essen, Bädeker u. Kürzel, 1808. - Kl. 8vo (ca. 17,4x10,5 cm), marmorierter Pappeinband der Zeit, mit 9 teils kolorierten Original-Papierproben auf 4 Tafeln. Es fehlt eine Kupfertafeln. Der Einband etwas berieben, die Ecken leichter gestaucht, innen durchgehend stärker gebräunt, die Vorsätze erneuert. Selten! Der Papierfabrikant Johann Adolph Engels (1767, Kettwig - 1828, Essen-Werden) eröffnete 1791 mit seinen 3 Brüdern ein Schreibmaterialgeschäft in Hohenlimburg bei Hagen, mit dem er bald den Betrieb einer Papiermühle bei Hagen verband. 1797 beteiligte er sich an der Papiermühle Nümbiecht bei Siegburg, 1799 pachtete er vom Abt von Werden die Papiermühle Holsterhausen bei Werden unter der Firma H. W. W. Söhne. Er stellte dort außer Schreibpapier zunächst grünes Konzept- oder Druckpapier her, dessen Farbe bereits dem Stoff- oder Lumpenbrei zugesetzt wurde. Dann versuchte er unermüdlich, wasserdichtes und feuerfestes Papier zu erzeugen. Als erster deutscher Papiermacher stellte er vor Rost schützendes Packpapier, das früher von England und Holland kam, aus alten Schiffstauen her und erhielt darauf ein großherzoglich bergisches Patent. Die Kontinentalsperre hob den Absatz. 1810 entschloß sich E., sein Werk Holsterhausen ganz auf die Herstellung von rostschützendem Packpapier einzurichten, das vorzugsweise von den Solinger Stahlfabrikanten abgenommen wurde. Daneben war er 1810-22 Mitpächter der Papiermühlen Sodingen und Strünkede bei Herne. 1817 trat Johann Wülfing von der Scheidlingsmühle bei Düsseldorf als Teilhaber in seine Firma ein, die sich nun günstig weiterentwickelte.
