        Quelques Idées Nouvelles sur le Système de l'Univers.

      A Paris, de l'Imprimerie de Didot Jeune, 1810. - in-8. XVI. 406pp. 1f. Broché, couverture muette de l'époque. Edition Originale. Curieux ouvrage exposant longuement le système cosmognique imaginé par l'auteur, un "ancien élève géographe" qui avait suivi les cours de physique de Brisson. Insatisfait des théories élaborées avant lui, en particulier celle de Descartes, l'auteur s'emploie à démontrer ses vues sur la rotation des corps célestes et la gravitation universelle, avec des expériences réalisées au moyen de globes de verre. Considérations sur le soleil, les comètes, la lumière, les gaz, etc. L'ouvrage s'ouvre sur une émouvante dédicace de l'auteur à son ami d'enfance et compagnon d'armes Jean François Paulin, avec qui il semble avoir participé aux campagnes napoléoniennes. Quelques rousseurs. Bel exemplaire non rogné et non coupé. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Caesars Tod

      . Kupferstich auf Papier, unterhalb der Darstellung links bezeichnet "Füger inv. et del", mittig betitelt "Caesars Tod" und rechts signiert: "Jos. Eisner sculp.", darunter bezeichnet "Die Original Zeichnung befindet sich in der Collection Sr. K. Hoheit des Herzogs Albert von Sachsen Teschen etc." und "Wien bei F. X. Stöckl", Darstellung: 26,7 x 37 cm, Papier: 36,1 x 45,7 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Besonders auffällig an Heinrich Fügers Komposition ist die starke Nahsichtigkeit und die merkwürdige Zurücknahme des eigentlichen Bildinhalts. Vergleicht man seine Bildkonzeption mit dem berühmten Gemälde von Vincenzo Camuccini, das einige Jahre vor Fügers Entwurf, der auf 1810 zu datieren ist, entstand, so fällt gleich auf, wie sehr sich Füger von einer bühnenartigen Inszenierung entfernt. Wo Camuccini mit einem offenen und weiten Raum arbeitet, da verbarrikadiert Füger den Vordergrund durch die Menschenmasse. Der Hintergrund wird zur bloßen Folie. Auch Cäsar scheint beinahe im Durcheinander der Personen unterzugehen. Camuccini lässt seinem Herrscher noch genügend Freiraum, um das Zentrum der Darstellung zu sein und vor allem, um sein "Et tu, Brute?" zu artikulieren. Füger beschneidet diese Artikulation förmlich, indem er den Dolch schon an Cäsars Herz zeigt und sein ganzer Körper bereits von den Händen der Senatoren gefesselt wird. Durch diese Maßnahmen erreicht er eine Intensivierung des emotionalen Mitempfindens, das das Bild über die Darstellung einer reinen historischen Begebenheit hinaushebt.

        Osservazioni sulla Chirotipografia, ossia Antica Arte di Stampare a mano. Opera di D. Vincenzo Requeno, Academico Italiano.

      Roma, Da' Torchi di Mariano de Romanis e Figli, 1810. - 4to.; 1 h., 106 pp. Encuadernación moderna en cartoné y papel de aguas. Un texto de notable rareza en el que se debaten los oscuros orígenes del arte tipográfico y donde se demuestra por documentadas investigaciones propias que ya desde el Siglo X se usaban ciertos rudimentos del mismo en los «scriptoria» de los monasterios para la elaboración de los códices, como secreto celosamente guardado y como antecedente inmediato de las novedades introducidas por Mentel, Fust, Jenson y Gutemberg a mitad del Siglo XV para la fundición de caracteres sueltos por medio de matrices y de la estampa por medio de la prensa. El eruditísimo jesuíta aragonés, cuyas obras fueron publicadas en Italia, formó parte del círculo de José Pignatelli, fue amigo y consultor de José Nicolás de Azara, de Bodoni y de gran número de estudiosos europeos de su tiempo, especialmente franceses e italianos, con los que llegó a entablar polémicas sin cuento. Hacia el final de sus dias, tras un corto retorno a España entre 1798 y 1801, Juan Francisco Masdeu publicaría en Roma 1806 un opúculo que lleva el expresivo título de «Requeno, il vero inventore delle piú utile scoperte della nostra età» donde se dice que el polifacético abate fue «el gran genio del Siglo XVIII, el más benemérito quizás de la república literaria», responsable a la vez de su propio oscurecimiento «por su admirable modestia». Tras la publicación por Giovanni R. Ricci en Palermo 1982 de la edición anotada de «Vicente Requeno: L'Arte di Gestire con le Mani» [Parma, 1797] en la que se destaca la modernidad de su sistema semiológico, parece haber salido de su oscurecimiento la figura del que a todas luces podría llegar a ser considerado el más genuino teórico español del neoclasicismo europeo, en la línea de un Winckelmann, unida a la corriente humanista española de buscar las condiciones histórico-sociales de todo saber, al modo de su admirado Luis Vives.

Pike's narrative stands, with those of Long and of Lewis and Clarke as the most important early book on western exploration and as a cornerstone of Western Americana. The maps were the first to exhibit a geographic knowledge of the southwest based on first hand exploration and are considered milestones in the mapping of the American west.

        A Treatise on the Law of War

      1810. Du Ponceau's Translation of De Rebus Bellicus Bynkershoek, Cornelius van [1673-1743]. Du Ponceau, Peter Stephen [1760-1844], Editor and Translator. A Treatise on the Law of War: Being the First Book of His Quaestiones Juris Publici. Translated From the Original Latin with Notes, by Peter Stephen du Ponceau. Philadelphia: Published by Farrand & Nicholas [et al.], 1810. xxxiv, 218 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, lettering piece and gilt-edge fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Some toning to text, somewhat darker in places, dampspotting and early annotations in pencil to a few leaves. A handsome copy. * Only edition, one of two issues (the other bound into copies of Volume III of the American Law Journal). A translation of De Rebus Bellicus, part one of Bynkershoek's Quaestiones Juris Publici (1737), A Treatise on the Law of War addresses the customs of land and sea warfare. A notably humane work, it condemns actions against civilians and advocates the fair treatment of prisoners of war. Du Ponceau's able translation is prefaced by a biography of the author, a table of cases, an index of citations from the Corpus Juris Civilis and an annotated bibliography of civil law treatises cited or referred to by the author. This latter item, which lists editions and translations, is interesting for its insights into the American reception of the civil law in the early 1800s. One of the most important jurists and international lawyers of his time, Bynkershoek was an influential Dutch jurist who founded the positive school of international law, which held that usage and practice were more important than deductions drawn from natural law. Du Ponceau is an important figure in the early history of American law and letters. He founded the Law Academy of Philadelphia in 1821, was the President of the American Philosophical Society and was a much-consulted expert on international relations and linguistics.

        An introduction to the science of botany, chiefly extracted from the works of Linnaeus; to which are added, several new tables and notes, and a life of the author

      Printed for F.C. and J. Rivington [etc.],London: : Printed for F.C. and J. Rivington [etc.], , 1810.. Fourth edition. 1/4 Leather. Good +. Fourth edition, corrected and enlarged. Second issue. 8vo (20.7 x 12.5 cm) . Modern quarter calf on marble boards, new end papters. Collation: xxiv, 580 p. + Copper engraved Portrait and 12 hand-colored, copper engraved plates. The plates were drawn by Henerson and engraved by Wettam. The plate shown here contains the extent of offsetting from plants and foxing . Offsetting and foxing for portrait and facing title page. Edge foxing and spotting throughout being most noticeable on a few of the plates collected at end of book. There are also remnant stains from plant material previously placed into the book in fresh state. Gutter stains in several leaves of preliminaries. In general the text has only light to moderate foxing and staining confined mostly to fore edge and bottom right corner of ca. 15 leaves. This edition was prepared by Lee’s son, James Lee the Younger, is only edition with color plates and expanded text with additional tables that complement the translation of Linneaus’s Philosophia botanica (presumably translated by E. W. Gray) that greatly enhance the utility of the book. The text has cancelled title page and pp. xv-xvii. The later single leaf is replacement for two leaves present in first issue which contained “some malicious details concerning Sir Joseph Banks”(Henrey II, p. 356) by Robert Thornton in his essay on the Life and Writings of James Lee. The present leaf is labeled xv-xvi/xvii-xviii and contains text that extends beyond that of adjacent leaves. There is no known copy of the first issue with the comments on Sir Joseph Banks. The last section of index and color plates with accompanying explanatory text has not been bound even with the remaining text block, thus extending out at the fore edge. This may have been done purposely to permit reader to see full dimension of plates with border. Tighter binding would have risked limiting view of objects on plates. This is a rare color copy of Lee’s “original work that constituted the first treatise of treatise of the Linnaean system in England.” (Stafleu & Cowan 4289). There is dedication to James Edward Smith by James Lee the Younger followed by Thornton’s essay on James Lee. There are VIII Tables complementing the translation of text for the twenty four Linnean Classes, Appendix on Palms, five (5) chapters on Genera and, in Part Third, twenty three (23) chapters on plant types, i.e. vegetables divisible into families or tribes, all parts of plants, seeds and various aspects of growth, germination and fine structures found on plants, ending with types of inflorescence and other morphological features on plants that permitting distinction of species and their varieties . The remaining portion of the book contains tables that include portions of the Termini Botanici: A dictionary of botanical terms for use of students in botany. “Lee (1715-1795) was gardener at Syon House, Middlesex and to Duek of Argyll at Whitton, Middleses. He also was partner with J. Kennedy in Vineyard Nursery, Hammersmith around 1745. He had a number of plant collectors providing plants from America and at the Cape (Horn?). He was a correspondent of Linneases. He introduced Fuchsia coccinea. He published Introdcution to Botany in 1760. The fourth edition (present copy and only one with) has his portrait ” (Desmond, Dict. Brit. & Irish Bot.& Hort, p.378)(Henrey, 961; Staffleu & Cowan, 4289) This is a rare color copy of Lee’s “original work that constituted the first treatise of treatise of the Linnaean system in England.” (Stafleu & Cowan 4289).

Little is known of the author other than he was a citizen of "the noble, loyal and brave city of Gocha Bamba." Lehmann-Nitsche suggest he was an outlaw chased by the Spanish to Buenos Aires (Journal de la Socit des Amricanistes. Tome 22 n1, 1930. pp. 199-206). Nicanor Aranzaes calls him a mercenary, H.P. Kraus wrote that he entered and then left the Order of Mercy, but by 1814 he was a captain of the dragoons. No other copies known at auction since the Oscar Carbone sale of 1968 (lot 357).

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

      London: S. and J. Fuller, 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.). First Edition. Card Covers. Very Good. 16mo.

      Baltimore [Md.]: Hunter & Robinson, 1810. First Edition. Hardcover. Moderate to heavy foxing, some staining to upper half of pages toward the end; binding Fine. Overall Very Good. Duodecimo (3-3/4" x 6-1/4") bound in full calf leather recently and sympathetically rebacked retaining the original morocco spine label; 252 pages. Complete but for the rear endpaper. An Annotated Catalogue of the Edward C. Atwater Collection of American Popular Medicine and Health Reform: "Brevitt provides chapters on the anatomies of the female pelvis, the fetal head and the female organs of generation; menstruation and its disorders; diseases of the female genitalia; pregnancy and its disorders; 'practical midwifery' (including praeturnatural labors, the use of forceps and caesarian section); the puerperium; and the diseases of infants," as well as postnatal care of infants. Brevitt also presents strategies for abortion, despite his footnote: “I feel constrained to note here the horrid depravity of human weakness, in wretches lost to every sense of religion, morality, and that mutual attachment from a mother to her offspring, and every tender tie in nature, seek the means to procure abortion: nor are there wanting in the other sex, infernals wicked enough to aid their endeavours" (page 117n). One of the methods suggested is “electricity” which would “restore discharge,” an idea that would be picked up by later nineteenth century entrepreneurs who developed several contraptions designed to help “obstructed” women. Austin 271; Shaw & Shoemaker; 19633.
