'Containing a further account of Mrs. Placid and her daughter Rachel'. Half-title is present. The Miseries of Human Life was written by James Beresford (17641840) and published in 1806. Illustrated by George Cruikshank, it catalogued in excruciating detail the petty outrages, minor humiliations, and tiny discomforts that make up everyday human existence. The Miseries were written as a series of discussions between Mr Samuel Sensitive and Mr Timothy Testy, in which they catalogue the daily injuries, insults, disappointments and treacheries of everyday life. Mrs Testy makes occasional appearances to offer Supplementary Sighs from a feminine perspective. Harriet Corp contradicted this work from a religious perspective with her 'Antidote', featuring the widow Placid and her daughter. Condition: In original paper covered boards. Externally worn, joints cracked, loss to the backstrip, marks to the boards. Front hinge strained. Internally, generally firmly bound although strained in one or two places, with pages 5-8 detached but present. Heavy foxing throughout. Overall: FAIR.

        Recherches sur le mouvement des ondes

      Didot, Paris 1809 - In-8. [210 x 145 mm] Collation : (2), VIII, 122 pp., 6 pl. dépl. h.-t. Demi-basane verte, dos orné. (Reliure de la seconde moitié du XIXe.). Première édition. "Depuis longtemps j'avais cru remarquer que le mouvement des ondes se faisait sentir à des profondeurs très considérables, tandis qu'on était généralement persuadé qu'il n'agissait effectivement qu'à quelques mètres de la superficie de la mer. [.] Impatient de vérifier mes observations, [.] je me livrais à des expériences suivies, qui toutes me confirmèrent dans mon opinion." Selon Prony, les phénomènes rapportés ne peuvent s'expliquer par les principes connus de la mécanique des fluides, mais "les raisons et expériences sur lesquelles M. Bremontier appuie son opinion, sont d'un grand poids." Les observations et expériences de Bremontier ont été faites dans la rade Saint-Jean de Luz, l'embouchure de l'Adour, le port de Bordeaux. Nicolas Brémontier (1738-1809), inspecteur des Ponts-et-Chaussées, est l'auteur d'un "Mémoire sur les Dunes" des Landes, qu'il avait été chargé de fixer par des plantations de forêts. Provenance : Audouin Dollfus, astronome (ex-libris gravé) qui découvrit Janus, une lune de Saturne. Fils de l'aéronaute Charles Dollfus, il est détenteur de plusieurs records mondiaux en ballon, dont le premier vol stratosphérique en France. Bon exemplaire.

        THE EMBARGO; OR, SKETCHES OF THE TIMES. A SATIRE ... TOGETHER WITH THE SPANISH REVOLUTION, AND OTHER POEMS

      Boston: Printed for the Author, By E.G. House, 1809. Boston: Printed for the Author, By E.G. House, 1809.. 35,[1]pp. Printed self wrapper, bound up in late 19th century full calf, gilt, t.e.g., by Stikeman. Binding a bit rubbed and darkened at spine and extremities; internally a very good or better, partially untrimmed copy. Second edition, enlarged, of Bryant's first book. The first edition, printing the title poem only, appeared in June of 1808, attributed only "To a Youth of Thirteen," and this edition, bearing the author's name for the first time, appeared in February of 1809. Both were printed at Bryant's father's expense, and the author declined to reprint the title poem in his lifetime, partially due to an energetic assault on the character of Thomas Jefferson contained therein. The scarcity of the first edition is such that this edition has played proxy for this title in a number of notable assemblages of authors' first books. BAL 1583.

        A Dissertation on the Numbers of Mankind, in Ancient and Modern Times

      Edinburgh: Archibald Constable and Co., 1809. Edinburgh: Archibald Constable and Co., 1809. Second edition, revised and corrected. Hardcover. Near fine. ii, 338 p. 24 cm. 2 tables within text. Rebound in beige cloth and grey paper boards. Ink signature on title page. Robert Wallace (1697-1771) was a minister of the Church of Scotland as well as an economist. In this work, first published in 1753, Wallace criticizes the chapter called "Populousness of Ancient Nations" in David Hume's "Political Discourses." Wallace argued that the population of the ancient world was greater than in modern times, a theory which Hume refuted. Nevertheless, this work, as well as Wallace's "Characteristics of the Present State of Great Britain" (1761) influenced the population growth theories of Robert Malthus. The fact that this dissertation was reprinted 56 years after its original publication indicates the revival of interest in population studies once Malthus published.

From the Restoration of King Charles II to the Conclusion of the Treaty of Peace at Utrecht, in the Reign of Queen Anne. To which are prefixed, a summary recapitulation of affairs in church and state, from King James I to the Restoration in 1660. Together with the Author's Life, and some Explanatory Notes by the Editor, his son. The Whole Revised and Corrected by Him. Ever since the appearance of Bishop Burnet's History of his Own Time it has been the subject of great controversy. It engendered much excitement and clearly sold well in England, each volume going through a number of editions -ODNB. Burnet's critics often accuse him of overstating, in his History and elsewhere, his own importance in the events of his time. While it is true that Burnet was an egomaniac, and he undoubtedly expected future historians to study him, there is much truth to his assertions. His career can be evaluated by dividing it into two, sometimes overlapping, spheres: his engagement in public affairs and his vocation as an author -ODNB. Condition: The textblock binding is tight and firm. The front board of volume one is missing. There are several boards missing, and the remaining boards are held by the cords only. There is significant wear to the extremities, including significant rubbing and edge wear, with loss to the spine. There is significant loss to the spine of volume one.

Bloomfield's poetry invites comparison with that of George Crabbe, who was also a native of Suffolk. Both wrote much in iambic pentameter couplets, both provide descriptions of rural life in its hardest and least inviting forms. Bloomfield, however, is more cheerful in tone and his verse is denser and more vigorous. Previous owner's ink inscription to front free endpaper. Condition: In contemporary calf binding.

        Schriftstück mit eigenh. U.

      Innsbruck, 15. VIII. 1809.. ¾ S. Folio. Mit größteneils erhaltenem Lacksiegel.. "Da sich Vorweiser dieß Mathias Purtscher gebürtig von Bludenz aus Vorarlberg in dieser Kriegsepoche äußerst thätig benohmen und seinen patriotischen Eifer bei jeder Gelegenheit mit rastloser Thätigkeit gezeigt hat - so hat sich Unterzeichneter /: da er die gehörigen Kennnisse an ihm findet :/ entschlossen, denselben als seinen Adjutanten in der Charge eines Hauptmans wo er auch sodann solche Gage nebst Pferdportionen zu beziehen haben solle, er ernenen. Dieses wird demselben zu seiner Legitimation schriftlich hinausgegeben [...] Andere Hofer". - Matthias Purtscher (1777-1846) übersiedelte nach Tirol, war Lehrer und Organist in Ried, Serfaus, Kauns, Brixlegg und St. Valentin. "Er kam am 9. April 1809 nach Schlanders und da unterbrach der Beginn des Tiroler Aufstandes sein Lehrerleben. Matthias bildete in Schlanders eine Schützenkompanie und da umringten die Bauern den Lehrer Purtscher und forderten ihn auf, ihr Kommandant zu werden. Als stiller, friedlicher Mann, so erzählte er selber, kam er mittags ins Wirtshaus, als Rebell kehrte er abends zurück. Nach verschiedensten Diensten stand Purtscher im Range eines Oberstleutnant dem Hauptmann Frischmann als Adjutant und Führer bei Aktionen im Etschtal, Nons- und Sulzberg zur Seite. In seiner nächsten Umgebung hat der Oberkommandant Andreas Hofer eine Anzahl Bauern als seinen geheimen Rat. Die zivile Verwaltung überträgt er einer Generaladministration. Der Mann nun, der Hofer den schwierigsten Teil seines Amtes abnahm und ihm treu zur Seite stand, war Matthias Purtscher. Hofer ernannte ihn schon am 15. VIII. 1809 auch formell zu seinem Adjutanten im Hauptmannsrang" (vgl. Matthias Purtscher aus Bludenz, der Adjutant Andreas Hofers. Mit einem Bildnisse Purtschers und einem Anhang über einige bemerkenswerte, aber wenig bekannte Bludenzer. 1913). - Leicht stockfleckig, Siegel teils brüchig und kleine Randläsuren.

Hiler. - Das Aquarell stellt Andreas Hofer dar, unten mit folgender Bezeichnung, in Tuschfeder ausgeführt: "1809. Logierte hier Andre Hofer Ober Comandant Von Tirol und Voralberg." Die ursprüngliche Signatur des Künstlers an der linken unteren Einfassungslinie ist hier abgeschnitten, die vom Künstler in kalligraphischer Tuschfeder ausgeführte Datierung und Bezeichnung ist jedoch unterhalb des Bildrandes montiert. - Dargestellt ist im Vordergrund Andreas Hofer an einem Felsen mit Baum gelehnt, bekleidet mit grüner Jacke, rotem Hemd, dunkler Kniebundhose, Stiefeln und Schwert, im Hintergrund wohl der Sandhof in St. Leonhard im Südtiroler Passeiertal. - Die beiden beigefügten Tiroler Trachten-Umriss-Radierungen sind in leuchtendem Originalkolorit ausgeführt; sie stammen sehr wahrscheinlich aus dem Album 'Trachten aus Tirol' von Kapeller. Sie zeigen einen Jäger und eine Kellnerin in Tiroler Tracht. "Besonderes Verdienst erwarb sich (Josef Anton Kapeller) als Zeichner einer vier Hefte umfassenden Folge von tirolischen Trachten, die er in seinem Kunstverlag herausgab. Die meisten hatte Simon Warenberger radiert Das Innsbrucker Ferdinandeum bewahrt von ihm die Originalzeichnungen zu diesen Trachtenbildern " (vgl. Thieme/Becker XIX, 540). - Saubere, sehr gute Erhaltung; das Aquarell zeitgenössisch auf altem Papier montiert, die beiden Umrissradierungen vollrandig.
