         [K 492] Le Nozze di Figaro Dramma Giocoso in Quattro Atti Prix 48f [Full score]

      Paris: Magasin de Musique [PN s566, 1-4], 1809. First Edition, first issue, with number "366" at foot of title and printed price of "48f." Fuld p. 353. Hirsch IV, 98. Not in Hoboken. RISM M4339. While Köchel (8) p. 545 cites the first edition as having been published in 1795 by Imbault, there are no known copies of this; it would thus appear to be a "ghost" (a citation for which there is no recorded copy). First performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on May 1, 1786, with libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte after Beaumarchais. "Figaro is generally agreed to be the most perfect and least problematic of Mozart's great operas... In the great finales of Acts 2 and 4, Mozart reached a level which he could never surpass; indeed, he was hardly to equal the Bb Allegro of the second act finale for its mercurial motivic play and the subsequent Andante in 6/8 for the synchronization of dramatic revelation with the demands of musical form." Julian Ruston in Grove Opera Vol. 3, p. 634.. 2 volumes. Folio. 19th century quarter mottled calf with marbled boards, Act I: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto table of contents, verso blank), [1] (named cast list), 2-129, [i] (blank); Act II: 186; Act III: 116, [1] (blank); Act IV: [1] (blank), 2-127, [1] (blank) pp. Engraved. Text in Italian and French. Named cast includes Bianchi as Almaviva, Signora Barilli as La Contessa, Signor Barilli as Figaro, Crespi-Bianchi as Susanna, Capra as Cherubino, Tarulli as Bartolo, Sevesti as Marcellina, Zardi as Basilio, Carmanini as Antonio, R*** as Barbarina, and Lupi as Don Curzio. Plate mark to first act "566" with "1" below; to second act "A.2.566," to third act "566.3," and to fourth act "566.4." With somewhat curious early manuscript note laid in relative to the text of Aria no. 10, Non piu andrai farfallone amoroso, stating "Si pongano le sole parole Italiane," but printed text is in both Italian and French to this particular aria, as it is throughout. Binding somewhat worn and scuffed; head and tail of spine frayed and partially lacking.

When the details of this circumstance became known in London it was considered a National disgrace, and all three senior Generals were ordered back to the Capital to face an Inquiry, published here in full the following year.

Near fine condition.Early American printer, publisher and bookbinder who, at the age of 18, assisted her father, Robert Aitkin, in publishing the first complete English Bible in America. She inherited her father's business upon his dearth in 1802 but also incurred thousands of dollars of his debt. On at least two occasions she lost her printing presses to a sheriff's sale and once ended up in debtor's prison. Shockingly, despite being a pioneering woman in early American printing, she is largely unheard of in historical records other than her obituary, and to make matters worse, her burial place is assumed to be in the destroyed cemetery of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia.

An anonymously published literary and political poetical lampoon on the influential Samuel Parr and his circle, attributed to Robert Eyres Landor (1781-1869), the younger brother of Walter Savage Landor.

      Birmingham: printed by R. Jabet Commercial Herald Office: and sold by Longman Hurst Rees and Orme London. n.d 1809 - 4to., with a fine engraved portrait frontispiece, xiv + 203 + (1)pp., entirely uncut, well bound in later 19th century quarter vellum over marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt. A fine copy with the near-contemporary ownership signature of Sophia Williams.> First edition: very scarce. A patriotic gathering up of reports, from numerous towns and villages up and down the country, of the local Jubilee celebrations. These usually took the form of celebratory festivities with food, ale and fireworks, laudatory speeches by local worthies, financial support and appearances by local gentry and nobility, music, dancing and general revelry. There was also, in most cases, a special thought given to the poor, usually involving dinners, and other provisions, plenty of ale, and often money as well. The Account> is set out county by county, with separate reports from each town and village. The report from the village of Blisworth, in Northamptonshire, is perhaps typical of hundreds of others: 'The morning was ushered in with the ringing of bells, a flag was displayed at the top of the church, and a fat sheep roasted whole. A great number of women were provided with cake and tea in the street, and at five o'clock the sheep was distributed among the poor people, with bread and beer, in equal portions to each family. A supper was afterwards provided at the Grafton Arms, where several of the respectable inhabitants assembled, and harmony and convivial mirth crowned the festivity of the day.' The editor gives notice that the 'profits arising from the sale of the work will be given to the Society for the Relief of Prisoners confined for small Debts.'

In ODNB, D. A. Brunton writes that the publication of Todd's edition of Milton in 1801 was his chef d'oeuvre: "In addition to Todd's own copious annotations and judicious selection from previous commentaries, the work included for the first time extracts from Stillingfleet's projected edition, together with criticism solicited from the family of Thomas and Joseph Warton. Republished on four subsequent occasions, it remained the standard edition for fifty years. The first volume, a thorough biographical study of Milton, revised in 1809 and 1826, was published separately and enjoyed an equal measure of success. For his labours Todd was rewarded with the handsome sum of £200, and his new-found celebrity was acknowledged with his elevation as a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1802." The reviewer in The Monthly Mirror for 1801 lavished praise upon the edition: "In the prosecution of the present undertaking, Mr. T. has displayed an ardour, an assiduity, and a copiousness of resource, which we may confidently affirm that few, if any scholars since the death of Warton, could have combined with equal taste and candour. Hence it is, that our attention becomes so agreeably divided between the text and the commentary, and that our admiration of the poet is heightened by the skill of his illustrator."

         Commentarii de rebus Franciae Orientalis et Episcopatus VVirceburgensis, in quibus regum et imperatorum franciae veteris germanique, episcoporum vvirceburgensium et ducum franciae orientalis gesta ex scriptoribus coaevism, bullis et diplomatibus genuinis, sigillis, nummis, gemmis, veteribus picturis, monumentisque allis exponuntur et figuris aeri incisis illustrantur. Erste Ausgabe. 2 Teile in 2 Bänden.

      10 Bl., 936 S., 31 Bl., 1 Bl., 1004 S., 39 Bl.. Mit zusammen 2 gest. Titelvignetten, 14 Kupfertafeln (7 gefaltet), 1 gefalt. Stammtafel, 1 Plan, zahlr. Textkupfern (meist Münzkupfer) und einigen gestochenen Vignetten Titeleien in Schwarz und Rot. 2 (31,5 x 20 cm). Schweinslederbände (auf Holzdeckeln) mit reicher Blindprägung, auf 5 Bünden und mit jeweils 2 intakten Messing-Leder-Schließen. Etwas berieben und fleckig insges. ca. 30 Bl. mit schwachem Wasserfleck im weißen Rand Bd I mit sehr geringen Wurmfraßspuren am oberen Kapital und hs. Besitzvermerk auf Titelei (datiert 1809) Titelei von Bd II knapp beschnitten, Schmutztitel hier mit kleinen hinterlegten Fehlstellen Innengelenke beider Bände mit schmalen Papierstreifen verstärkt. Provenienz: Auf Innenspiegel von Bd I mit dem gest. Wappenexlibris "Ex bibliotheca Theodori Karajan" - es handelt sich um den Historiker und Germanisten Theodor Georg Ritter von Karajan (1810-1873), dem Urgroßvater des nachmaligen Dirigenten Herbert von Karajan. Die reiche barocke Blindprägung der Einbände mit floralen Rollen- und Plattenstempeln, die Verstärkung der Innengelenke, die Beschneidung der Titelei sowie die signifikant frischeren Abzüge der Kupfer im Band II bieten Raum für verschiedene Vermutungen: - die beiden Bände sind nicht zeitgleich und/oder nicht in derselben Auflagenhöhe erschienen - die Buchblöcke und die Einbände sind erst später (im 19. Jhdt?) zueinander gekommen, denn diese sind anscheinend 100 Jahre älter als der Inhalt. Im 20. Jhdt wurde zusätzlich ein marmorierter Pappschuber angefertigt. Die Datierung der Erscheinung dieses Werkes muß, anders als im Impressum mit 1729 angegeben, 1731 lauten, denn: "Anno 1730. die 9. Februarii post horam septimam matuatinam (...) placidissime in Christo obdormivit Perillustris Dominus, Joannes Georgius ab Eckhart". Das heißt, das Werk erschien unvollendet und posthum, worauf schon Jöcher (vol. II, 269f) hinweist. Kein in der Literatur, im Handel oder in öffentlichen Sammlungen beschriebenes Exemplar hat diesselbe Kollation mit der angegebenen Anzahl von Tafeln wie das vorliegende, was zusammen mit der Frische der Abzüge ein weiterer Hinweis sein mag, dass vol. II nicht zusammen mit vol. I bzw. nicht in allen Exemplaren mit derselben Tafelanzahl erschienen ist. Die Tafeln im Übrigen stammen von Johann Salver (1670-1738 vgl. Thieme/B. 29, 360). J. G. Eccard (1674 in Duingen bei Hildesheim - 1730 Würzburg), Historiker, ab 1694 Mitarbeiter/Sekretär von Leibniz, auf dessen Betreiben seit 1704 Professor für Geschichte in Helmstedt, nach Leibniz' Tod 1716 Übernahme von dessen Stelle als Historiograph und Bibliothekar in Hannover, floh 1723, vermutlich wegen Schulden, vor der Verfolgung durch die Justiz nach Würzburg, konvertierte zum Katholizismus und reüssierte erneut als Bibliothekar, Archivar und Historiker. Im vorliegenden Werk - es blieb unvollständig und der Berichtszeitraum reicht bis zur Regierungszeit Konrads I - gibt Eccard in der Behandlung des weitgefassten Themas ein Beispiel seiner quellkritischen Methode, die insgesamt seine Bedeutung als Historiker auch bei seinen zahlr. anderen Schriften begründet. "Die Geschichte des Bistums, er sieht das Würzburger Gebiet als Ursprungsland der Franken an, wird in engster Verbindung mit der Reichsgeschichte dargestellt. (...) Besondere Beachtung verdient seine Erstausgabe des Hildebrandliedes im 1. Band seiner Commentarii (S. 864-902)" (NDB 4, 270f). Die Kasseler Handschrift des Hildebrandliedes wird in Übersetzungen und ausührlichen Kommentaren als herausragendes Dokument der deutschen Sprache und Geschichte insgesamt gewürdigt.
