Numerous manuscript corrections, annotations and deletions in Sade's hand, principally adding blocking, and rich in both stage and acting directions. Written in 1776 and re-copied at Charenton in 1808, and most likely augmented at the time with various topical references - notably including an allusion to Napoleon, ""of whom he was hoping, in vain, to receive permission to leave the asylum at Charenton as a free man"" (p.94) - Les Antiquaires is one of the first theatrical pieces written by the Marquis and therefore one of his first literary works overall, written eight years before the Dialogue entre un prêtre et un moribond [Dialogue Between a Priest and a Dying Man].

Legendre, A(drien)-M(arie).
Paris Courcier. (26 x 20 cm). XXI (statt XXIII) 480 (34) S. Halblederband der Zeit. "Legendre's 'Essai' contains an improved exposition of his law of the reciprocity of quadratic residues, his principal contribution to number theory, which he first demonstrated imperfectly in his 'Recherches d'analyse indéterminée'. In 1801, Gauss claimed priority for the discovery of this law, for which he had provided the first rigorous demonstration; Legendre, while maintaining his expositions of 1785 and 1798, adopted Gauss's proof in the second edition of the 'Essai' (1808). The 'Essai' also introduced the symbol (a/p), still used to express the law of reciprocity; and gave an outline of Legendre's law of the distribution of prime numbers, which he improved in the second edition" (Norman). - Titel mit Besitzvermerk von alter Hand. Stellenweise etwas stockfleckig. Ohne Schmutztitel und die beiden Supplemente. Einband berieben und bestoßen. Rücken und Ecken erneuert, sonst innen gut erhalten. - DSB 8, 135; vgl.

(AUCTION CATALOGUE: VENTENAT)
1808. xii, [2], 83 pp. 8vo, Middle Hill boards (spine defective & shaky), uncut. Paris: Tilliard Frères, 1808. The rare sale catalogue of the great botanical library of Étienne Pierre Ventenat (1757-1808), librarian of the Panthéon and one of the leading French botanists of the period. While not a large library (612 lots), this was one of the finest botanical libraries formed during the end of the 18th century and was nearly complete in the more modern works. Ventenat used his relationships and skills as a librarian to buy the best copies possible. Many of the books were annotated by him. Lots 603-11 consisted of Ventenat's collections of botanical specimens (lot 603 contained 14-15,000 specimens from all over the world!). The preliminary leaves contain a life of Ventenat. The auctioneer has supplied two very useful indexes, one of authors and another of anonymous works. This copy has the two-page schedule of the sale. Very good copy from the library of Sir Thomas Phillipps with "MHC" written on the title. The boards are a dead give-away of the Middle Hill provenance: brown boards, joined to the book on the cheap. Bookplate of A.R.A. Hobson. ❧ Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Books Auctions...1643-1830, 484. Peignot, p. 131-"Curieux sous le rapport de la botanique et de l'histoire naturelle."

SADE Donatien Alphonse François, Marquis de
S.n. , s.l. août 1808, in-8 (17,5x21,5cm), (40f.) (3f. bl.), broché. - S.n. , s.l. août 1808, in-8 (17,5x21,5cm), (40f.) (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.

Contemporary paper-covered boards, rebacked with modern matching paper, spine gilt. Boards worn at the edges. Contemporary ownership signature on front free endpaper. Scattered foxing and soiling. Good. Untrimmed. John Stewart lived on Jamaica for twenty-one years, and he presents here a thorough description of the island, its government, laws, religion, climate, soil, the earthquakes to which it is susceptible, the military situation on the island, its vegetation and animals, towns and villages, the planter class, and its native and mixed-race populations. Much of the interest in this text has to do with his assessment of the slaves on the island. He asserts that the condition of slaves has greatly improved, and that Jamaicans were being unfairly criticized due to past conditions. "He gives good accounts of the various social and professional groups there, the interests and work of each, and details of town and planter life. The pictures drawn are rather uncomplimentary to the proprietors and to the Established Church, with the result that the book stirred up great wrath locally" - Ragatz. SABIN 35557. RAGATZ, p.234.

[Argentina]
London, 1808. viii,216,[1]pp. plus four folding maps. Antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Minor offsetting and foxing on titlepage and to other leaves facing maps. Old library stamps on first two leaves; contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Errata slip pasted to verso of titlepage. Very good, untrimmed. In 1807, Gen. John Whitelocke was sent to the Rio de la Plata with a large force. His goal was to reinforce British troops already operating there and in Argentina and to seize Buenos Aires, a move designed to open up the markets of South America to British commerce and replace those lost on the Continent by Napoleon's blockade. Despite his large force, Whitelocke proceeded cautiously and ineptly, further hampered by bad weather. The assault on Buenos Aires was met by civilian as well as military resistance, when the British had expected local merchants to welcome them with open arms. Craufurd commanded a light brigade, which led the attack on Buenos Aires and successfully achieved its objectives. However, a large part of the attacking force was cut off and forced to surrender while Whitelocke napped in his tent and Craufurd's brigade was ordered to surrender with the rest of the British force. Santiago Liniers, the Spanish commander, proposed a truce if the British would promise to withdraw in two months, but said he could not answer for the safety of the prisoners if the attack was renewed. Feeling that the object of the expedition was now untenable, Whitelocke accepted those terms. The British withdrew to Montevideo and then to England … [Click Below for Full Description]

[RELIGION] Buell, Samuel
Sag-Harbor: Alden Spooner, 1808. 12mo, 144 pp, with engraved frontis portrait of the author. Original paper-covered wooden boards with calf spine. Two ownership inscriptions of Persis Booth (b. 1790, Addison, VT), dated 1815 and 1820, on front free endpaper. Boards edgeworn, mild to moderate foxing throughout, frontispiece partially detached; still about very good. Sabin 8983. Buell, an acolyte of Jonathan Edwards who came of age during the Great Awakening (graduating from Yale in 1741), was one of the leaders of the wave of religious revivals that swept New England and the Mid-Atlantic states in the mid 1760s. The title of this work, like several other revival narratives of the era, openly acknowledges the author's debt, both literary and spiritual, to Edwards' highly influential Faithful Narrative of the Surprising Work of God (1737). Buell's account of the 1764 revival among his Long Island congregation was first published in 1766. This edition adds a sketches of his life and those of his daughter and son, as well as short accounts of two other periods (1785 and 1800) of uncommon religious enthusiasm in Buell's community. The effects of such revivals, he concludes, "were highly salutary. The vestiges of scepticism and infidelity were swept away; and differences and prejudices, which had long interrupted the peace of society, were happily healed."

Yet, as a theoretician, his devotion to ground and caution led his contemporary, Carl von Clausewitz, to criticize his rigidity and adherence to geographic strategy.

Con stemma Napoleonico inciso in rame sul frontespizio. L'edizione a stampa è composta dalle prime tre serie di pagine ([2], 106, [2]); la successiva serie di 44 pagine non numerate contiene nelle prime 20 un indice ragionato manoscritto opera del possessore, come da timbro e firma di possesso in fine, il notaro regio Giuseppe Pazzini, attivo agli inizi del XIX sec. nell'area di San Miniato. L'indice si presenta suddiviso per lettere in ordine alfabetico e si arresta alla lettera C; le successive 24 risultano bianche ed erano sicuramente destinate a contenere il resto dell'indice.
