        Vue du Pont de Baveno et de l'Isola Madre

      1811. "A une demi lieue de Feriolo est le petit village de Baveno dans une situation très champetre, au pied de la montagne, au milieu de prairies où les chataigniers élevent à l'envi leurs tetes majestueuses, et cachent sous leurs ombrages épais les maisons et les vignes qui les environnent".* Questa veduta è tra le più belle del lago. A poca distanza da Baveno la strada attraversa il torrente Trefiume su di un ponte a cinque archi, costruito con granito bianco a venature rosse, subito dietro l'Isola Madre e sulla sinistra Pallanza.Sullo sfondo, ai piedi del Sasso del Ferro, si nota la cittadina di Laveno, mentre lungo la sponda orientale, che scende verso Angera, si intravede Cerro. Una curiosità: nella dicitura nell'angolo in basso a sinistra "Dessiné d'après nature par M. de Meuron", il disegno viene erroneamente attribuito a Meuron, infatti l'acquerello originale è firmato da G. Lory. Ottima conservazione. Rif: Zipoli, "Elogio del Lago Maggiore", p. 288, nr 126.

        WHOLE ART OF BOOKBINDING, CONTAINING VALUABLE RECIPES FOR SPINKLING, MAKBLING [sic], COLOURING, &C.

      Oswestry: Printed and sold for the author by N. Minshall, 1811. Bookbinding. 12mo. original paper covered boards. xi, 60 pages. S-K 7258. Pollard no.89, the first English book devoted entirely to bookbinding. "It is very much a working bookbinder's notebook put in order for publication and owes little to the encyclopeaedias." Pollard lists three possible authors but positive proof establishing authorship has never been found. Pollard states that the real strength of this title lies in the detailed descriptions of preparing colors for sprinkling book edges and processes of sprinkling and marbling covers. Chipping with some loss to head and tale of spine, text uncut. Unopened and in its original state, as issued, which is much more rare.

        INQUIRY INTO THE NATURE AND CAUSES OF THE WEALTH OF NATIONS

      London: J. Maynard...Haymarket; and F. Zinke...Strand, 1811. 3 volumes. Very early printing. This printing now with an Account of the Life of the Author which has been specially drawn up for the first time, as well as studies on the author and the French economists of the period, and a method of facilitating the study of the work. 8vo, bound in very handsome and well preserved three-quarter contemporary polished calf over cloth covered boards, compartments of the spines decorated with gilt decorated raised bands, bordering decorations tooled in blind, one compartment lettered in gilt, one with maroon morocco lettering label gilt. lxxi, 360; vi, 512, 513-514 appendix; vi, 448, (50 pp.extensive index). An especially bright and fine set in very handsome and well preserved contemporary bindings. The text remains very clean, crisp and fresh. There has been no restoration work of any sort to bindings or text. Rare thus. AN UNUSUALLY WELL PRESERVED AND HANDSOME SET OF THIS EXTRAORDINARY WORK. Eighteenth century editions of Smith's magnum opus are becoming very scarce. This edition of 1811 is a very early English printing of the nineteenth century still in 18th century style. It retains Smith's introduction and also incorporates the author's advertisements to the third and fourth editions and a new advertisement to this edition setting out the additions made to the preliminary materials for this edition. 'The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory - the physiocrats had already suggested it and Turgot in particular had constructed an organised study of social wealth - his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange: "labour is the real measure of the exchangeable value of all commodities ... it is their real price; money is their nominal price only". Labour represents the three essential elements - wages, profit, and rent - and these three also constitute income. From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter - "stock" - which compasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or for the return which it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definite onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control. 'Where the political aspects of human rights had taken two centuries to explore, Smith's achievement was to bring the study of economic aspects to the same point in a single work ... The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought' (PMM). Smith's classic work was begun at Toulouse in 1763-64 where he had travelled as guardian of Henry Scott, the young duke of Buccleuch, and in the company of David Hume, historian and fellow professor at Glasgow University. The work took shape over the next ten years and was finally published in 1776. At one point during its composition, Hume wrote that Smith was "cutting himself off entirely from human society." But his labors, however severe his methods, yielded the "first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (Printing and the Mind of Man). "[I]t may be said that the WEALTH OF NATIONS certainly operated powerfully through the harmony of its critical side with the tendencies of the half-century which followed its publication to the assertion of personal freedom and 'natural rights.' It discredited the economic policy of the past, and promoted the overthrow of institutions which had come down from earlier times, but were unsuited to modern society. As a theoretic treatment of social economy, and therefore as a guide to social reconstruction and practice in the future, it is provisional, not definitive. But when the study of its subject comes to be systematized on the basis of a general social philosophy more complete and durable than Smith's, no contribution to that final construction will be found so valuable as his" (Britannica)

        WATERCOLOUR ALBUM BY.

      - Circa 1811. 22,5 x 11,5 cm. Watercolours size: 22x11 cm. Full leather binding packed on a 25,5x15 cm. posterior synthetic skin protection case, with a portrait of the author at the center front board (replica from the one at the National Portrait Gallery in London) and with his and date in gilt letters under it. An historically important album containing 39 watercolours and 21 drawings, some partially coloured, depicting views of Portugal as well as typical Portuguese figures and animals, done by British Army Officer Major Douglas Mercer, probably during a reconnaissance journey in the period he was ADC to Major General Dilkes or actually during the retreat of the French Army (March 1811) when Major Mercer is reported to have been wounded twice, at Barrosa and Sobral. A curious detail is that a rough map of the area surrounding the city of Guarda is outlined, somewhat hidden in one of the drawings, this having been the area where the French Army under the command of General Massena, during the Third Invasion of Portugal, finally retreated. It is also of note that although the album might be taken as the work of a talented and interested visitor nevertheless all the views shown bear obvious military and topographical interest, relating to the crossing of rivers, hilly areas or fortified towns. As related in his obituary, Major, later Lieut-General Mercer, was a highly distinguished officer but alsoundoubtedly talented as an artist. He fought bravely at Waterloo, commanding the 2nd Battalion. A portrait of him is at the National Portrait Gallery in London. In 1852, he inherited Fordell Castle, Fife, Scotland, on the death of his elder brother Robert. By royal licence dated 14 January 1853, Mercer and his issue were authorised to take the surname of Henderson in addition to and after that of Mercer, and to bear the arms of Henderson quarterly with those of Mercer.

        Aus meinem Leben. Dichtung und Wahrheit. Erster bis dritter Theil. Zweyter Abtheilung, erster und zweyter Theil: Auch ich in Arcadien! Zweyter Abtheilung, fünfter Theil: Auch ich in der Champagne! 6 Teile in 6 Bänden (mehr nicht erschienen).

      Cotta 1811-1822, Stuttgart und Tübingen - Zusammen 3.036 Seiten. Schöne historisierende Halblederbände vom Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts mit etwas Goldprägung und goldgeprägtem Leder-Rückenschildchen. Nach der Erschütterung durch Schillers Tod 1805 und endgültig nach der Vollendung seines 60. Lebensjahres begann Goethe sich selbst historisch zu werden, und das autobiographische Schreiben wurde zum Hauptgeschäft der nächsten Jahre. Ursprünglich wohl als Ergänzung der 13bändigen Werkausgabe von 1806-1810 gedacht, veröffentlichte er 1811-1814 die ersten 3 Bände von "Aus meinem Leben," die den Zeitraum von der Geburt bis zum Jahr 1772 in 15 Büchern schildern. Das Projekt geriet ins Stocken und wurde 1816-1817 mit den ersten beiden Bänden der "zweyten Abtheilung" fortgesetzt, die stilisierend die ästhetische Neugeburt des Autors angesichts der italienischen Kunst- und Antike-Erfahrungen schildern und die wir heute als "Italienische Reise" kennen. 1822 werden dann die "Campagne in Frankreich" und die "Belagerung von Mainz" als 5. Theil hinzugefügt und das autobiographische Großwerk bleibt Fragment. Erst in Band 29 der Ausgabe letzter Hand wurde 1829 der "Zweite Römische Aufenthalt" veröffentlicht, den unvollendeten 4. Theil von "Dichtung und Wahrheit" publizierte Eckermann schließlich 1833 aus dem Nachlaß in Band 48. Gelegentlich gering stockfleckig, insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein ungewöhnlich dekoratives, gut erhaltenes, einheitlich gebundenes und wegen des langen Erscheinungszeitraums vollständig recht seltenes Exemplar der Erstdrucke (Hagen 363) von "Dichtung und Wahrheit" sowie der "Italienischen Reise," einer der bedeutendsten Autobiographien der deutschen Literatur.

        Versuch über den Zusammenhang der thierischen Natur des Menschen mit seiner geistigen. Neue unveränderte Auflage.

      Wien Wallishausser 1811 - (19 x 12 cm). (2) 63 S. Rückenbroschur in moderner Leinwand-Kassette. Seltene zweite Ausgabe seiner 1780 erstmals veröffentlichten Dissertation. - Nach zwei vergeblichen Versuchen - die jeweils vom Prüfungskomitee abgelehnt wurden - reicht Schiller vorliegende Arbeit ein, in der er sich mit dem Leib-Seele-Problem beschäftigt, wie schon in seiner ersten Arbeit. Bereits in der Vorrede hebt er den Einfluss der Philosophie auf die Medizin hervor und stellt zudem die philosophisch-theoretischen Aspekte der Medizin in den Vordergrund. Er stellt die Frage nach dem Sinn des Lebens und beschreibt die Verbindung von Leib und Seele derart, dass die Seele den Organismus über den Zustand der Organe unterrichtet und die Gesundheit des Leibes den Frieden der Seele bestimmt. Von besonderem Interesse sind Schillers Ansichten über den Einfluss der Gemütsbewegungen auf die Organtätigkeit. - Stellenweise leicht stockfleckig bzw. gebräunt, sonst wohlerhalten [Attributes: Hard Cover]
