Ook de grootste promotor van het nieuwe stadhuis, burgemeester Van Iddekinge overleed. Diens opvolgers voerden allerlei wijzigingen en bezuinigingen door en aan het begin van de 19e eeuw kon opnieuw met de bouw worden begonnen. Pas in 1810 kwam het nieuwe classicistische gebouw gereed.Prijs: ?975,- (incl. lijst).

        The Life and Death of Cock Robin

        PLUTARCH'S LIVES, Translated From The Original Greek; With Notes Critical and Historical; and a Life of Plutarch. By John Langhorne, D.D. and William Langhorne, A.M.

      London Printed for J. Mawman, F.C. & J. Rivington et. al 1810 - 8 volumes. The new edition, with corrections and additions. Small 8vo, full contemporary polished calf, the spines with gilt bands separating compartment decorated with central gilt ornamental devices, contrasting lettering labels of red and black morocco lettered and numbered in gilt. A very fine, handsome and complete set with virtually no evidence of age or wear. A remarkably well preserved antiquarian set. A VERY FINE SET, REMARKABLY SO, AND HANDSOMELY BOUND AT THE TIME. A lovely set in full contemporary calf binding. The Langhornes' translation is considered more correct than North's spirited version and more even than the translation called Dryden's. Lowndes considered it an "accurate and elegant version". This is a pleasing, gentlemanly and very well-preserved set. Plutarch continues to be one of our most important sources for the history of Greece and Rome and is also well-known as a primary source for the plots of Shakespeare's classical plays and for numerous passages in the non-Roman ones. The great bard relied almost exclusively on Plutarch’s writings for the historical background of ancient Rome. The Lives of Plutarch (ca. AD 50 - ca. 125) was one of the most influential works of antiquity, and was the most popular work at the time of the Renaissance. The Lives illustrated the moral character of Plutarch's subjects through a series of anecdotes; in England they served as a source-book for Shakespeare's Roman plays, a virtual gold mine of plots, as well as providing numerous passages in the non-Roman ones. The Bard relied almost exclusively on Plutarch’s writings for the historical background of ancient Rome. Later Plutarch provided the source for Otway and Addison. They also served as a model for Isaac Walton's "Lives" (1670); Dryden gave a pioneer analysis of their style and structure in his Life of Plutarch (1683), and in America the Founding Fathers turned to them for models of republican virtue. In this monumental historical work, Plutarch relates biographies of 50 Greek and Roman luminaries, twenty-three pairs of lives (nineteen of them with comparisons attached) and also four single lives. They include lives of Solon, Themistocles, Aristeides, Pericles, Alcibiades, Nicias, Demosthenes, Philopoemen, Timoleon, Dion, Alexander, Pyrrhus, Marius, Sulla, Pompey, Mark Antony, Brutus, Julius Caesar, and Cicero. Of the later Roman emperors, only the lives of Galba and Otho survive. Plutarch's object is to bring out the moral character in each case, rather than to relate the political events of his time; hence his full treatment of the subject's education and natural disposition, and his relation of anecdotes calculated to reveal the nature of the man, 'a light occasion, a word, or some sport' which 'makes men's natural dispositions more plain than the famous battles won, in which ten thousand men may be killed'. Although Plutarch may have at times distorted the truth in order to exemplify virtue or vice, in general he is as reliable as his sources, and always very valuable. He shows no bias or unfairness in his treatment of Greeks and Romans, no flattery of the now dominant power of Rome or vanity in the past glories of his own nation. He believed in the compatibility of Rome the ruler and Greece the educator. The Lives contain, besides interesting anecdotes, many memorable historical passages: the catastrophe in the Peloponnesian War of the Athenian expedition to Syracuse (Nicias), Pompey's defeat by Caesar and subsequent murder the death of the younger Cato, and the suicide of Otho. There are also great battle-pieces: the victory of the Roman general Marius over the German Cimbri, the victory of the Corinthian general Timoleon over the Carthaginians at the river Crimisus, the siege of Syracuse (when Archimedes was there) by the Roman Marcellus; and striking descriptions of a quite different kind, of the happy state of Italy under Numa, of Sicily pacified by Timoleon, and of Cleopatra sailing up the river Cydnus on [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1810. S.n. , s.l. [1810-1812], in-8 (18,5x23,5cm), (1f.) 2 f. découpés (78f.), broché. - S.n. , s.l. [1810-1812], in-8 (18,5x23,5cm), (1f.) 2 f. découpés (78f.), 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. " La penna di Blanchot, Sadismo non è il godimento più di violenza contro gli altri, ma l'espressione di "la solitudine infinita dell'individuo" in un mondo "in cui i rapporti esseri, le forme generali di vita e alla lingua out è già utilizzato nella distruzione universale. "; "E ora tutte le crudeltà particolari non sono più destinati (...) per portare a Colui prove piacevole della sua esistenza nel mezzo del nulla. " Se, come sottolinea Bataille, un aspetto più innovativo, la lettura di Sade Blanchot rivela una comunità di pensiero è probabilmente attraverso la conclusione di questo primo studio importante che Blanchot solitaria dimostra più chiaramente il suo attaccamento Sade al One: "E adesso veniamo a pensare se le circostanze fossero de Sade un uomo mai ridotto alla miseria di una prigione eterna, si è riuscito a fare sua solitudine immagine prigione universo dove il suo regno solo gloria in eterno onnipotente. La prigione non mente, è il suo lavoro, è la misura del mondo su cui ha più diritti di Dio stesso, perché non solo regna sovrano, ma ha bandito e escluso tutte le creature. Tale è il vantaggio del Distruttore del Creatore. Questo ateo è più Dio che Dio. Fa anche chiamata divina.

      Though the document is undated, it does show the entries to the Shetland Fishermen's Fund.

        La fête de l'amitié. Manuscrit autographe complet et unique.

      Complete autograph manuscript of 12 pages in-8 6 sheets under difficult to decipher, perhaps: "Sade or the kingdoms of The One" and be published under the title "Some remarks on Sade" in Review No. 3-4 of 7 August 1946.Manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions."It's the thought of Sade pushing that Blanchot to completion, and it is also that of Blanchot that accomplishes that of Sade." (Georges Bataille)Writing and friendship of Battle are probably not unrelated to the importance Blanchot give his life to this father figure of his philosophical reflection.These few remarks on Sade, however, are the first study that Blanchot dedicated to this writer that he had hitherto almost never mentioned.In this first impartial and sometimes severe analysis, Blanchot points out the weaknesses of literary posture Sade and relative immorality in a post-revolutionary society steeped in ideological contradictions.However, under the artifice of extreme expression, Blanchot reveals a far more disconcerting and subversive philosophy that these "great extravagance."With remarkable acuity, he portrays a unique spirit, all espousing high ideals of his time, but placing them in the filter of his nihilistic singularity: "Freedom, in his view, is that the prohibition for anyone to be anything other than what he wants, is to say nothing. "The pen of Blanchot, Sadism is no longer enjoyment of violence against others, but expression of "the infinite loneliness of the individual" in a world "where beings reports, the general forms of life and to the language out is already used in the universal destruction. "; "And now all the particular cruelties are no longer intended (...) to bring to the One pleasant evidence of its existence in the middle of nothing. "If, as Bataille points out, a more innovative look, reading Sade Blanchot reveals a community of thought is probably through the conclusion of this first major study that Blanchot solitary demonstrates most clearly his Sade attachment to the One:"And now we come to think if the circumstances were de Sade a man never reduced to the misery of an eternal prison, itself has succeeded in making his prison image loneliness of universe where his reign only glory forever almighty. The prison did not mind, it is his work, it is the measure of the world on which he has more rights than God himself, because it not only reigns supreme, but he banished and excluded all creatures. Such is the advantage of the Destroyer of the Creator. This atheist is more God than God. Does also called divine. " S.n. s.l. [1810-1812] in-8 (18,5x23,5cm) (1f.) 2 f. découpés (78f.) broché

Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in full leather with red label with gilt lettering to spine. (Howes: P372) First edition.Zebulon Montgomery Pike,1779-1813, American explorer, an army officer, born Lamberton (now part of Trenton), N.J. He joined the army (c.1793) and was commissioned second lieutenant in 1799. In 1805 he led an exploring party to search for the source of the Mississippi River; although he mistakenly identified Red Cedar Lake (now Cass Lake) in Minnesota as the source, he was not far wrong. After his return he was sent on an expedition (1806-7) to explore the headwaters of the Arkansas and Red rivers and to reconnoiter Spanish settlements in New Mexico. Pike and his men went up the Arkansas River to the site of Pueblo, Colorado and explored much of the country, sighting the peak that is named after him, Pikes Peak. When he and a small party went to the Rio Grande, they were taken into custody by the Spanish who brought them to Santa Fe and then to Chihuahua and finally released them at the border of the Louisiana Territory. Upon his return, Pike was accused of complicity in the plot of Aaron Burr and James Wilkinson to detach Western territory from the United States, but he was exonerated by the Secretary of War. Pike was promoted to the rank of brigadier general during the War of 1812. He was killed while commanding his troops during the successful assault on York (now Toronto).Condition:Frontispiece and title edges repaired. Lacks other plates and maps, else a very good copy.

        The East India vade-mecum; or, complete guide to gentlemen intended for the civil, military, or naval service of the Hon East India Company

      London: printed for Black, Parry, and Kingsbury, booksellers to the Honourable East India Company, 7, Leadenhall-Street. 1810. Two vols., 8vo., xvi + 520 and (iii) - vii + (1) + 506 + (6)pp., including the half-title in vol.I (lacking in vol.II) and the final advertisement leaves in vol.II, short closed tear in leaf Y1 (pp.321-2) of first vol. but with no loss, bound in uniform contemporary half sheep over marbled boards, flat spines with labels, the labels rather rubbed and faded, the slightest wear to extremities but overall very good copies each with the 19th century armorial bookplate of Robert Smith (Smyth)* of Gaybrook, County Westmeath.> First edition. Described sometimes as the first travel guide to India, this is actually an encyclopaedic reference work on every imaginable subject that the new East India Company staff members - civil or military - would wish to know. Subjects, each treated expertly and in some depth, are wide-ranging, covering matters social, economic, religious, mercantile, legal, agricultural and military. 'In the volumes now offered to the public,' the author writes, 'it has been my zealous endeavour to supply those minutiae and details, which have not, in any distinct manner, been heretofore tendered to its consideration. A residence of more than twenty years in Bengal, during which period I had every opportunity of visiting the several districts under that presidency, has enabled me to afford considerable insight into a variety of topics, which, whether to the statesman, the merchant, the military, or the civil character, should prove highly important, and guide, not only to a just conception of the characters of the natives, and of the European society, in India, but to the removal of that host of doubts, prejudices, and national opinions, which it suffered to prevail, must occasion every object to be seen through a false medium.' [Preface]. Williamson is, perhaps, best known for his 1807 Oriental field sports> with its superb hand-coloured aquatint plates. * Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Smyth (1812-1886) was an officer in the Bengal Artillery.
