Gass, Patrick
London: J. Budd (London); David [M'Keehan] (Pittsburgh), 1808. First London edition. iv, 381, [1], [2 ad] pp. 8vo. First published account of the Lewis and Clark expedition. First English edition of the first published account of the Lewis and Clark expedition, published from the notes of Patrick Gass, a sergeant in the corps. "Although he had not learned to read and write until an adult, Gass nonetheless complied with Lewis's orders that each sergeant keep a daily journal ... Gass became one of the best-known members of the expedition for several reasons: his key role as sergeant brought his name up frequently in the journals of Lewis and Clark; his account was the first to be published; he was the first to have a biography written about him; and finally, he outlived the other members of the Corps of Discovery by decades, dying at the age of ninety-nine in 1870" (Wagner-Camp). Howes considers this the best edition. Howes G77; Sabin 26741; Wagner-Camp 6:2. Contemporary calf rebacked with original spine laid down. Repair to bound edge of title, leaves evenly toned, faint old dampstain at end, partial title inked in contemporary hand to fore-edge.

Michelangelo Buonarotti and Thomas Piroli (Tomasso Piroli)
Paris: Bocchini, 1808. The complete suite of line engravings by Thomas Piroli after Michelangelo's "Final Judgment" in the Sixtine Chapel. Includes a beautifully engraved title-page (with line-engraved vignette), two leaves of explanatory text, and 16 additional large folio full-page line-engravings. Piroli's dramatic, sculptural, neo-classical prints, often after designs by John Flaxman, were an important influence on William Blake and other British and Continental artists of the early 19th century. This suite is particularly important both for its rarity and for the fact that it was based on one of the major works of European art, and thus was instrumental in creating an image of that work for the many Europeans who could not travel to see the original. Printed on extremely fine wove paper. Large folio (21 inches, 53 cm). Bound in contemporary morocco-backed embossed boards, spine gilt in six compartments. Minimal wear to extremities of binding. A little faint foxing on a few leaves, but generally fine and bright. A very attractive copy, with large margins. Not in Cicognara, Brunet, or Graesse, all of whom cite several other works by Piroli.

López Cancelada, Juan
México: En la Oficina de Don Mariano de Zúñiga y Ontiveros, 1808. First edition. Hardcover. g to vg. Small octavo (7 3/4 x 5 1/2"). [6], 72pp, [4] leaves, 73-134pp. Modern 3/4 brown buckram over marbled paper covered boards, with gold lettering to spine.This scarce monograph is based on the results of the Napoleonic Sanhedrin regarding the civil status of the Jews living in France. It was published in colonial Mexico by Juan López Cancelada, the editor of the "Gazeta de la Nueva España." On May 30, 1806, Napoleon passed the decree that paved the way to the creation of an assembly of Jewish notables who would represent the Jewish community and be a consultative body with the aim of bringing Jews over to his policies. «According to a report which I have received, certain Jews in several northern départements, whose only profession is that of money-lender, have, by the accumulation of the most immoderate interest, put many farmers in these lands in the greatest financial straits. [...] On 15 July, in our fair town of Paris, an assembly of individuals professing the Jewish religion and living in France shall be formed.» «The members of this assembly shall number 111, taken from the stated départements and selected by the Prefects from amongst Rabbis, householders and other Jews distinguished by their probity and enlightenment.» (Correspondance of Napoleon I, n°10291).The Council met five times between July and September, 1806.

London: W. Winchester and Son [for the Admiralty], 1808. Folio, 6 bifolia - 12 pages - paper watermarked Golding & Snelgrove 1806, stab-holes from sewing, title from front panel of self-wraps. Wraps somewhat browned and soiled, fold of wraps professionally repaired with japanese tissue, light browning throughout, horizontal median crease from old fold, some splitting towards the fore-edge at the crease, now neatly reinforced with tissue, about very good. 6 pages of flag instructions, hand-coloured in part, a 2 pages of signals with lights, uncoloured. Extremely uncommon set of instructions for merchant ships sailing in convoy during the Napoleonic Wars. Copac shows a single copy dated to 1802 at NMM, OCLC adds copies identified as 1804 at NYPL and Princeton, another lacking self-wraps - "1800s" - at the Peabody Essex and NYHSL, another similar at the State Library of New South Wales, 1802, and copy misidentified as "1700s" at the Navy Department Library History and Heritage Command. These instructions were issued under the condition of secrecy, were subject to supersession after the conclusion of a given mission, and were flimsily produced, all of which militates against their survival. Furthermore the act governing the conduct of merchant masters in convoy, relevant passages of which are reprinted on the last leaf of these instructions, specifically stipulates that in the case of the threat "of being boarded or taken possession of" the captain must "destroy all instructions confided in him relating to the convoy".

NIETHAMMER, F.I. - [COINING "HUMANISM"]
Jena, Frommann, 1808. 8vo. Contemporary (original?) blue full paper binding with blindstamped title-lable to spine. Occasional light brownspotting throughout. All in all a very nice and fine copy. (6), 359, (1) pp. ¶ Scarce first edition of Niethammer's seminal work, in which he introduces the term "humanism" for a systematically worked out body of thought with its own value structure and becomes the first to apply the word within a conceptual framework, thus profoundly influencing all later research on the humanistic period. "The term "Humanismus" was coined in 1808 by the German educator, F.J. Niethammer, to express the emphasis on the Greek and Latin classics in secondary education as against the rising demands for a more practical and more scientific training. In this sense, the word was applied by many historians of the nineteenth century to the scholars of the Renaissance, who had also advocated and established the central role of the classics in the curriculum..." (Kristeller, Renaissance Thought and its Sources, pp. 21-22). Niethammer's work not only came to determine how we have come to talk of the Renaissance and that essential part of it which we now call "humanism", it also illustrates how scholars framed the essential values embodied in humanism at the time. It furthermore anticipated the 19th century age of "-isms" and ideology and the attempts at developing more structured and systematic ways of organizing theories and ideas with the purpose of influencing society and its culture.

In this memoir Young studied, as perhaps the first, the blood circulation and the function of the heart from a hydrodynamic standpoint, and he predicted that there exist a relationship between arterieal stiffness and pulse wave velocity, a relation which was only confirmed much later."In this lecture from 1808 (the item offered) he discusseas the properties of the circulatory system from a remarkkably modern standpoint. His work exerts significant influence on the subsequent studies of the Weber brothers." (Gedeon. Science and Texhnology in Medicine No. 44.8).

GOETHE, (JOHANN WOLFGANG von). - [FIRST FULL VERSION OF FAUST]
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

RIZZI ZANNONI GIOVANNI ANTONIO - LAPIE PIERRE M.
Incisione in rame di P.A.F. Tardieu, cm 79x192, stampata in 4 lastre. Carta di notevole rarità basata su "les déterminations astronomiques les plus recentes, sur les meilleures cartes marines et terrestres, remarques des pilotes et journaux de navigation par J.A.B. Rizzi-Zannoni Géographe de Sa Majesté Sicilienne et P. Lapie Capitaine Ingénieur Géographe Français". Lapie stesso scrive "Cette carte fut dressée en 1804, par Rizzi-Zannoni, géographe napolitain; je la recommençais en grande partie en 1808 et depuis métant procuré de nouveaux matériaux, je refis en 1813, Le Côtes de la Guyenne, celles de Portugal, le Golfe de Gênes, l'Illyrie et une partie de la Grèce, la Mer de Marmara, quelques points de l'Asie mineure, l'île de Chypre et enfin la majeure partie des Côtes de l'Afrique". E' molto probabile che la carta sia stata realizzata sulla scorta della "Carta Piana del Mare Mediterraneo", di Giovanni Fileti pilota maggiore della Real Marina Borbonica, pubblicata a Palermo in 11 fogli nel 1802, alla cui formazione il Rizzi Zannoni contribuì in maniera determinante con le sue memorie e la sua prestigiosa raccolta cartografica. Egli ricevette a tal proposito un ordine dal conte di Thurn, comandante della marina borbonica nel delicato periodo della rivoluzione napoletana del 1799. La carta fu quindi elaborata e rivista, soprattutto per le coordinate e per la proiezione, da Pierre Lapie e quindi incisa a Parigi dal Tardieu (1757-1822), nel 1808.La carta riscosse un certo favore e l'astronomo Xavier de Zach ne pubblicò una recensione nella sua famosa Monatliche Corresponden nel … [Click Below for Full Description]

Includes a drunken head, a crying philosopher, and old bachelor, and more.

NINOMIYA, Ken (or Genka or Hikoyoshi)
Many fine full-page woodcut illus. 46; 59 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. yellow wrappers (lower wrapper of Vol. I a little mouse-gnawed), orig. woodblock title slips on upper covers, new stitching. Kyoto, Osaka, & Edo: 1808.First edition of one of the three most important Japanese works on orthopedic medicine. The book is based on Chinese medical science, most notably the Sheng ji zong lu, written in the 11th century and the Yi zong jin jian by Qian Wu (active 1736-43). It presented a system of surgical treatment to cure injuries to bones, principally of fractures and dislocations, with instructions on how to stop bleeding and to bind or immobilize the injured part by bandaging. There is a substantial section on materia medica and the compounding of prescriptions which were considered essential to the treatment of bones in Japan.The numerous and fine woodcuts depict braces, manipulations, bandaging techniques, etc.Ninomiya (1754-1827), was a prominent medical doctor who laid down the foundations of orthopedic surgery. He studied in Nagasaki where he learned Western and Japanese techniques from Kogyu Yoshio (1724-1800), interpreter of Dutch and a famous physician and surgeon who had a "Western-style" room at his home in the city. After further study under a number of doctors throughout Japan, including Gento Yoshiwara, he established himself in Edo where he had an extremely successful practice. Having contracted syphilis as a baby from his wet nurse, Ninomiya lost his nose and wore a artificial nose for the rest of his life.Nice set. The covers are a little soiled.&#10 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Arnim, Ludwig Achim v.
Heidelberg, Mohr u. Zimmer, 1806-1808. Dekoratives Exemplar der beliebten Volksliedsammlung, das berühmteste Buch der deutschen und der Heidelberger Romantik. Alle Teile liegen in der 1. Ausgabe vor. Meist taucht die Sammlung mit dem Band 1 in der 2. Auflage von 1819 auf. Weitere Auflagen sind nicht erschienen. Ein Druckhaupttitel ist nach Mallon für Band 1 nicht ermittelt. Mit der achtseitigen Widmung an Goethe. Die Sammlung drohte nach Erscheinen des ersten Bandes (1806) zu stocken. Goethe ermutigte Arnim und Brentano, die Sammlung fortzusetzen, was auch mit Hilfe von Bettina Brentano und den Brüdern Grimm, die zahlreiche Beiträge sammelten, 1808 gelang. Der dritte Band enthält noch eine Danksagung an Goethe. Den Anhang ‚Kinderlieder‘ besorgte Brentano allein. Der schöne Kupferstich dazu wurde von Emil Ludwig Grimm nach Motiven von Philipp Otto Runge gestochen. Von großem Reiz sind auch die anderen gestochenen Vortitel und Titel: Der Titel von Band 1 (von Kunze nach Clemens Brentano) zeigt die berühmte Darstellung des reitenden Knaben mit dem Horn. Die Darstellung des Oldenburger Horns im Frontispiz von Band 2 wurde von A. Weise nach einem Entwurf Clemens Brentanos und einer Zeichnung von Wilhelm Grimm radiert. Die Sammlung wurde begeistert aufgenommen. Heine z. B. schrieb: "Dieses Buch kann ich nicht genug rühmen; es enthält die holdseligsten Blüten des deutschen Geistes, und wer das deutsche Volk von seiner liebenswürdigen Seite kennen lernen will, der lese diese Volkslieder." – Die gestoch.

Richy; with a letter to Richy from Edward Roer, dated 17 June 1844. One of the earliest Urdu-English dictionaries, whose text would provide the basis for Shakespear's popular dictionary, with pleasing provenance. The letter to Richy from Edward Roer, Librarian of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, explains that Roer could not supply all the books requested and advises Ricky to approach the libraries of the College of Fort William and the Sanskrit College, Calcutta. Joseph Taylor joined the East India Company's 1st Bengal Artillery in 1783 and was promoted captain in 1804, one of the earliest soldier-linguists who made such immense contribution to the British study of Indian languages. Whilst compiling this dictionary he was Agent to the Gunpowder Agency at Allahabad, long a centre of Urdu and Hindi scholarship. Taylor's work was edited and enlarged by the surgeon and orientalist William Hunter, Examiner in Persian and Hindustani at the College of Fort William and sometime Secretary of the Asiatic Society of Bengal.

Alexander Murray; James Bruce; John Hutton
Edinburgh: Archibald Constable, 1808. Bound in contemporary calf. Quarto, 29 cm. Rebacked, with modern spine. xiv, 504, 4 pages. 22 plates total: frontispiece portrait, 19 plates, 2 folding maps. Travels to discover the source of the Nile. Bruce attempted to find the source of the Blue Nile by traveling to Ethiopia, where the source was reputed to be located. He began his journey in Egypt in 1768, navigating the Red Sea to Jiddah, landing in Arabia and Massawa. His party set out from Gondar to the Ethiopian highlands, eventually reaching Lake Tara and Gish Abay, the source of the Blue Nile, in 1770. From Gondar, he began the arduous 1200 mile trek through the Sudanese desert back to Cairo. When he returned to Britain his incredible accounts were met "by scepticism concerning the truth of Bruce's claims"-DNB. In 1790 he published his 5 volume "Travels to Discover the Source of the Nile" to support his account of his travels. The book was an instant success, but doubts lingered and Bruce was for a time unfairly deemed a travel fraud. The 2nd and 3rd editions of Bruce's Travels were "edited by the oriental scholar Alexander Murray, whose painstaking examination of Bruce's papers established a more reliable text of his travels and whose biography of Bruce (1808) is an important contemporary source."-DNB.

(3f. bl.), broché. - Completa manoscritto autografo di 12 pagine in-8 6 fogli sotto difficili da decifrare, forse: "Sade o regni di The One" e pubblicato con il titolo "Alcune osservazioni sulla Sade" in Review No. 3-4 del 7 agosto 1946. Manoscritto scrittura molto denso, con molte cancellature, correzioni e aggiunte. "E 'il pensiero di Sade spingendo che Blanchot a compimento, ed è anche quella di Blanchot che compie quello di Sade." (Georges Bataille) La scrittura e l'amicizia di battaglia non sono probabilmente estranei a l'importanza Blanchot dare la sua vita a questa figura paterna della sua riflessione filosofica. Queste poche osservazioni su Sade, tuttavia, sono il primo studio che Blanchot dedicato a questo scrittore che aveva fino a quel momento quasi mai menzionato. In questa prima analisi imparziale e talvolta gravi, Blanchot sottolinea le debolezze della postura letteraria Sade e relativa immoralità in una società post-rivoluzionaria ricco di contraddizioni ideologiche. Tuttavia, sotto l'artificio di espressione estrema, Blanchot rivela una filosofia molto più sconcertante e sovversiva che questi "grandi stravaganza." Con notevole acutezza, ritrae uno spirito unico, tutto sposando alti ideali del suo tempo, ma collocandoli nel filtro della sua singolarità nichilista: "Libertà, a suo avviso, è che il divieto per chiunque di essere qualcosa di diverso da ciò che vuole, è quello di non dire nulla.

Zotti's focus upon the education of the English upper classes is indicated by the dedications of the three volumes of his edition of the Divine Comedy. Each is dedicated to a different aristocratic woman; the first being to the Countess Lonsdale, the second to the Countess of Dartmouth, and the third to a Mrs Pilkington.

London: Printed for Richard Phillips, 1808. 1st ed. 3 Vols. Orig. marbled boards rebacked in period-style gilt-ruled calf with original black morocco spine labels laid down, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled. Light rubbing to boards, occasional faint scattered foxing, else very good. HOWES A-352, "aa." "Slow travel permitted Ashe to observe many traits of the inhabitants and features of the countryside. His oblique observations persuaded him of the degeneracy in America of both man and beast...[T]he women were 'far superior' to any he had seen in Europe. As for soil, climate, and advantages of nature, Ashe was favorably impressed with the Ohio and Mississippi valleys, and his descriptions are generally credible. The chief reason for his journey was an intense interest in archaeological remains. He uncovered Indian tombs, sought bones of extinct animals, and climaxed his trip by swindling Dr. William Goforth out of a skeleton of a mammoth. Enlivened by misrepresentation and exaggeration, Ashe's account is interesting and higly readable."--Clark, Old South, II, 135.

WEBBER, John.
London Boydell & Co.: but 1820. First edition. 16 hand-coloured aquatints, with watermarks from 1805, 1819 & 1820. Folio. 15 leaves of descriptive text (plates II & III described on the same page). Postwar(?) three-quarter morocco, spine lettered in gilt, buckram boards, a.e.g., some very light spotting to title and (blank) preliminaries. The most striking, but the last of the many important books relating to Cook's voyages to be published. The sixteen beautiful aquatint plates are designed after drawings by Webber and were engraved by the artist himself. He produced uncoloured versions of some of these plates during his lifetime, but the magnificent aquatints found here only appeared after his death. The plates include natural history, ethnographic and scientific subjects relating to New Zealand, Tahiti, Cracatoa, Kamtschatka, Macao and Vietnam, including an image of the Discovery and the Resolution beating a path through the ice fields. Boydel, the publisher, hoped that owners of the atlas to the official account of the third voyage would add these to their collection, adding to the title-page: 'these plates form a new series, and are of the same size as those engraved for Captain Cooke's last voyage'. However, the bibliographical puzzle of this handsome book, as described by Forbes and Abbey, would suggest that this might not have been the case. Although the date on the title page is given as 1808, the plates are dated 'April 1, 1809' and printed on paper of varying dates. The copy described here for example has plates printed on Whatman paper with watermarks dated 1805, … [Click Below for Full Description]
