        A Treatise On Magic; Or, The Intercourse Between Spirits And Men

      Quitman, Frederick Henry. A Treatise On Magic; Or, The Intercourse Between Spirits And Men. Albany: 1810"Presentation copy from - the author - on front blank recto."Balance Press, 1810. 12mo, contemporary professionally re-backed ¼ marbled boards, gilt-ruled spine; internally clean & crisp. Early owner's signature at head of title. Presentation copy signed by "the author" on front blank recto. Housed in a Period ¼ Sheep Clamshell gilt spine. American Imprints 21169 (4 copies).This book looks into the history and beginnings of Magic in good and evil and in entertainment, from all periods and religions, covering Egyptian and Greek mythology to superstitions Witchcraft, Sorcery and much more, with pages 61 ?" 76 of annotations wonderfully explained and referencing back to the full explanations within the book. The Rev. Dr. Frederick Henry Quitman, the son of Stephen Henry and Anna Quitman, was born August 7, 1760, in the Duchy of Cleves in Westphalia [on an island!], in the lower Rhine. His father held an important office in the Prussian Government. The son, manifesting at an early age a great love for books, more than common intelligence, and superior talents and application to study, was placed by his father, into the celebrated school of Halle. After receiving the advantage of a liberal education Henry then transferred to Halle University. Under the guidance of George Christian Knapp (1753-1825), August Herman Niemeyer (1754-1828), Johann Salomo Semler (1725-1791), and other eminent professors in that distinguished seat of [Pietist, then Aufklarung Rationalist ] learning. For more than thirty years Dr. Quitman divided his time among a number of small and scattered Lutheran churches in the Hudson River Valley. These congregations were dispersed groupings of German speaking farmers and craftsmen. At the time there was a profound shortage of German speaking Lutheran pastors willing to serve in the rustic wilds of New York. Dr. Quitman often preached seven or eight times a week in either German, Low Dutch, or English. "In is preaching he was brief, biblical, practical and impressive inculcating with great energy the Christian gospel... [and] He never used a manuscript in the pulpit." First in the associated churches of Schoharie and Kobles Kill [until 1798 ]; and afterwards in those of Rhinebeck, Wurtemburg, Germantown, and Livingston.

        [K. 527]. Il Dissoluto Punito osia Il Don Giovanni Dramma giocoso in due Atti... Ridotto per il Pianoforte da C. G. Neefe. [Piano-vocal score]

      Hamburgo: Giovanni Augusto Böhme [without PN]. [ca. 1810]. Oblong folio. Contemporary half vellum with green marbled boards, decorative white cut paper label in the shape of a goblet with manuscript titling to upper. 1f. (pictorial title with vignette depicting a scene from the opera engraved by Wolf), [i] (blank), [i] (cast list and contents, grouped in four acts, in Italian but with German incipits only), 3-205 pp. Engraved. Watermark: "FCD" and fleur de lys with crown. Paper with a greenish cast. Printed text underlay in Italian and German; stage directions in German only. Musical numbers reordered and grouped in four acts. Boards slighty worn; rubbed and bumped at edges and corners; upper hinge split. Repair to small tear to lower outer corner of first page of music; one leaf dampstained. Sharp added in pencil to p. 183. A very good copy overall. . Later edition. Rare Köchel 6, p. 598. Hoboken 11, 345 and plate 181 (same watermark as present copy). Hamburg, ?-ffentliche Bücherhallen (municipal library). RISM M4508. Böhme published several editions of the piano-vocal score; Köchel does not distinguish among them. RISM M4509 is not credited to Neefe; the copy at the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen carries plate number 42. RISM M4510 (including Hirsch IV, 131) and the copy at the Staats- und Stadtbibliothek Augsburg are also different: the credit to Neefe is lacking; the word "Pianoforte" is misspelled "Pianoforto"; the contents are arranged in the original two acts (as suggested by the title) rather than the spurious four, and one number, the duet of Zerlina and Don Ottavio, "Ach Schätzchen, lass mich laufen" (i.e., "Restate qua"; composed later) is added; also, Hirsch cites plate number 300; not in the Augsburg copy, and a pagination running to 209. The pictorial title is basically the same as that of the first edition of the full score by Breitkopf & Härtel (1801); only the line crediting the reduction and the imprint are new.

        THE HISTORY OF LITTLE FANNY, Exemplified in a Series of Figures

      S. and J. Fuller, London 1810 - Pp. [2], 15, [1], [2].Fifteen numbered pages of rhyming text, verso of final page blank, both front and rear original blanks present. Illustrated by accompanying hand-painted printed card doll figures; there are seven outfits; and a head (there are no removable hats in this copy - see note below). The book and figures are housed in a contemporary vellum slipcase with the title "Little Fanny" in manuscript to the front panel. The card wrappers of the book are in remarkably good condition, internally the book is very good, a little reading wear and minimal staining to the edges of a few pages, the original ribbon is not present, the figures are in very good bright condition, the top part of a dolls head being carried by Fanny is missing in one figure and the same figure has had a small part of the base replaced in hand-drawn facsimile with hand colouring (not recent). Overall a very good first edition copy. (Bibliographical note: we also have an 1811 (seventh edition) of this work and it has been useful to compare directly the two editions. It is interesting to note that whilst the figures are ostensibly the same the printing of them is quite different - the later edition is bolder with additional lines engraved; additionally the way the outline of the figures have been cut out differs too. One might suspect that the number of additional items such as hats etc. differed too between editions - and what the publisher had available at any one time.)

        [Kitab al-ifadah wa-al-i'tibar fi al-umur al-mushahadah wa-al-hawadith al-mu'ayanah bi-ard Misr]. Relation de l'Egypte par Abd-Allatif, medecin arabe de Baghdad; suivie de divers extraits d'ecrivains orientaux, et d'un etat des provinces et des villages de l'Egypte dans le XIVe siecle [...].

      Paris, de l'Imprimerie Imperiale / Treuttel & Würtz, 1810.. Large 4to (262 x 202 mm). XXIV, 752 pp. WIth title vignette. Contemp. half calf over marbled boards, siltstamped title to gilt spine.. First French edition of this account of Egypt, translated and annotated by the orientalist Silvestre de Sacy, who added other significant texts, such as "Etat des provinces et des villages de l'Egypte, dresse en l'annee 1376, sous le regne du Sultan Melic-Alaschraf Schaban". Abd al-Latif (1162-1231), known as Ibn al-Labbad or Ibn Nukta, was a philosopher, physician, historian, and a literary man. He was one of the most prolific Arab writers, but of the numerous works ascribed to him, mostly on medicine, only his graphic and detailed account of Egypt has survived. In his edition Silvestre de Sacy provides many valuable notes to this text, the first translation into French. Abd al-Latif was educated in Baghdad, turned to philosophy and the works of Ibn Sina, visited Mosul and then Damascus and the camp of Salah al-Din outside Akka, where he met Baha' al-Din ibn Shadad and Imad al-Din al-Isfahani, the famous Arabic chroniclers of the Crusades. He went on to Cairo and travelled between there and Syria, especially Aleppo. His work was widely known in Europe and translated into Latin and German. Edward Pococke junior was responsible for a Latin version of part of the text, later issued with the Arabic by Thomas Hyde in a very scarce Oxford 1702 editio; the Latin version was continued by Joseph White in another bilingual edition (Tübingen 1789; Oxford 1800). A German version by S. F. Günther Wahl followed in 1790. The first Arabic edition did not appear until 1869 (Cairo, 1286 AH). - Boards slightly worn. Top corner of title page repaired (not affecting text) and small printed sticker with caution against blasphemy; near-contemp. ownership "Lindgren" on pastedown. Insignificant spotting and a few pencil annotations in margins. A good copy. - Brunet I, 9. Gay, 1908. Zarkali 4, p. 61. Ellis, Arabic Books in the British Museum I, 48. Cf. Garrison 1768 (cites White's bi-lingual Arabic/Latin Oxford edition of 1806). Ibrahim-Hilmy I, 3. Sarton II, 2, p. 599.

      F. and C. Rivington, G. Wilkie and J. Robinson etc, London. 1810 - Eighteenth edition, enlarged and carefully improved, by Joseph Dessiou. Octavo. pp.xvi, 336 + tables. 8 engraved plates including a frontispiece portrait, maps, charts, Hadley's quadrant and sextant, "a first rate ship of war"; at the rear are two folding planispheres of the stars. Quarter leather with marbled boards. The endpapers and blanks are densely filled with notes of a navigational nature, in Swedish, and in an exquisitely fine hand, such that they add to, rather than detract from, the book's condition. The majority of the notes date from 1867. The tables at the rear are unnumbered but an approximate guess would put them in the region of 200 pages - they concern difference of latitude and departure, logarithms, artificial sines, tangents, and secants, finding the latitude by two altitudes of the sun, high water, &c. One page has been extensively repaired but is complete. Very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Relación histórica y moral de la portentosa imagen de N. Sr. Jesucristo crucificado aparecido en una de las cuevas de S. Miguel de Chalma, hoy real convento y santuario de este nombre, de religiosos ermitaños de N.G.P. y doctor S. Agustin, en esta Nueva España, y en esta provincia del santísimo nombre de Jesús de México. Con los compendios de las vidas de los dos venerables religiosos legos y primeros anacoretas de este santo desierto, F. Bartolomé de Jesús María, y F. Juan de San Josef

      [Mexico] : Casa de Arizpe Small 4to. [7] ff., 386 pp., plt.. 1810 One has here the sole edition of the standard and well-thought-of account of the Sanctuary of Jesus Christ at Chalma, the second most visited pilgrimage site in Mexico. The cave housing the Christ Crucified statue was a pre-Columbian sacred site and pilgrimage destination; miraculously the pre-Columbian statue with magical healing power morphed into the Christ image soon after it was visited by early Augustinian friars, who took over the cave and the surrounding area and build a church and religious compound. The original Christ statue was destroyed by fire in the 18th century. In addition to the wealth of information here about the origins of the cave as a site of miracles, its history throughout the colonial period, and accounts of miracles occurring there, this work also has important biographies of Augustinians of the 17th century who played important roles in the care and perpetuation of the site. The engraving shows the cave, the Christ figure, pilgrims, and Augustinian friars. 19th-century mottled sheep, abraded, missing spine label; spine is cracking down center, and volume may sometime split into two halves. Some brown stains, most notable in inner and upper or lower margins; lower outside corner of title–page neatly excised. Old ink notes and scribblings.

        The Book of Job translated from the Hebrew. With a Preface and Annotations by the Rev. F. Randolph, D.D

      8vo. Bath: Richard Cruttwell, 1810. 8vo, (4), xv, ?188? (i.e. 206)pp. Early calf, black label lettered in gilt, backstrip neatly repaired, a very good copy. First edition by the unsung genius Elizabeth Smith: ?Aside from a governess who taught her French and a little Italian, from six to eight years of age and again from ten to twelve, Smith was largely self-taught. In 1789 she became governess to her siblings and began an influential friendship with Henrietta Maria Bowdler. In 1794 she began learning Arabic and Persian from her brother's oriental dictionary; in 1796 she studied Hebrew from a Bible belonging to Henrietta Bowdler's mother. Between 1795 and 1799 she learned Spanish, German, Arabic, Persian, Greek, Latin, Hebrew, some Syriac, and Erse, as well as music, mathematics, and astronomy.? Biblical translations by women are very rare in general -- this book, though not rare, is of importance in that genre and it would be pleasant to imagine that she might have met William Blake who at this time was also teaching himself Hebrew in order to publish his ?Illustrations of the Book of Job?.
