Un index contient de nombreuses pl. de calculs (avec quelques annotations manuscrites à la plume). xij, 275pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The interest that his writings aroused in the ancient Scandanavian Tongues directed attention to their literature, He was the first to study the ancient Nordic languages systematically. He disovered the correspondence of the consonant relations between the Indo-European languages, which led Jacob Grimm to formulate the rules underlying the Germanic as well as the the first complete texts of the eddas of Snorri and Saemund and added modernised versions. During his journeys to Russia and Persia he collected valuable Avesta and Pali manuscripts which he gave to the Royal Library in Copenhagen of which he was the librarian, and thereby promoted the study of the Asian branches of the Indo-European family fo languagesî (Printing and the Mind of Man).Printing and the Mind of Man 266.HBS 65357.$1,750

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb, July 1811.. Broadside, 12 1/4 inches tall. Slight worming in foremargin, repaired. A very good copy. July 5, 1811 is Venezuela's official independence day, following more than a year of wrangling and temporary measures after the deposing of the Captain General on April 20, 1810 and the establishment of a caretaker government that already styled itself as "independent," despite paying lip service to loyalty to Ferdinand VII. This document dates from immediately after July 5th, as internal evidence shows. Here the Junta Suprema explains what it perceives as the political reality of Spain's dissolution into non-nationhood under Napoleon and thereby justifies "Venezuela [having] entered now, Americanos, into the number of free nations of the Americas." This is the third known copy. Grases locates only the copies in the Public Record Office (London) and the Archivo de Indias (Seville). Searches of NUC and OCLC fail to find any copy at all. Furthermore, no copies were found when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England.

        Text begins:] AMERICANOS. EL ORDEN POLITICO DEL OTRO HEMISFERIO HA REDUCIDO LA ESPAÑA Á SER VICTIMA DE LA PERFIDIO Y OORESION Y ESTE PUEBLO GENEROSO CONDUCIDO DE UNO EN OTRO INFORTUNIO VA YA Á SER BORRADO DEL CATALOGO DE LAS NACIONES.

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb, July 1811. - Broadside, 12 1/4 inches tall. Slight worming in foremargin, repaired. A very good copy. July 5, 1811 is Venezuela's official independence day, following more than a year of wrangling and temporary measures after the deposing of the Captain General on April 20, 1810 and the establishment of a caretaker government that already styled itself as "independent," despite paying lip service to loyalty to Ferdinand VII. This document dates from immediately after July 5th, as internal evidence shows. Here the Junta Suprema explains what it perceives as the political reality of Spain's dissolution into non-nationhood under Napoleon and thereby justifies "Venezuela [having] entered now, Americanos, into the number of free nations of the Americas." This is the third known copy. Grases locates only the copies in the Public Record Office (London) and the Archivo de Indias (Seville). Searches of NUC and OCLC fail to find any copy at all. Furthermore, no copies were found when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England. An exciting proclamation at the beginning of Venezuelan independence. GRASES, HISTORIA DE LA IMPRENTA EN VENEZUELA 72. CAMBRIDGE HISTORY OF LATIN AMERICA III:110.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. With a life of the author. Also, a view of the doctrine of Smith, compared with that of the French economists; with a method of facilitating the study of his works; from the French of M. Garnier.

      Edinburgh, printed for Silvester, Doig and Andrew Stirling, 1811.. 3 Bde. 8vo. LXIII, 360; VI, 512; IV, 448 S., 26 Bll. (Index). Neue Pappbände.. Es handelte sich bei der Garnier-Ausgabe um die bedeutendste und beste Übersetzung des 1776 erschienenen Grundlagenwerks ins Französische. Die Anmerkungen Garniers wurden ins Englische übersetzt und zuerst der 1805 erschienenen schottischen Ausgabe beigefügt. In der Folge wurde die Garnier-Ausgabe öfter nachgedruckt. Hier liegt eine solche schottische Nachdruckausgabe von 1811 vor. - Das wirkungsmächtigste wirtschaftstheoretische Werk, das im Jahre 1776 im englischen Original erschienen war. Smith's (1723-90) "grosser Fortschritt ... besteht darin, daß er sich von der Behauptung der Physiokraten über die mehrwertbildende Kraft der Natur freimacht und stattdessen die allgemein gesellschaftliche Arbeit, unabhängig von ihrer besonderen Form, als die einzige Quelle des Wertes anerkennt" (Bräuer 109). "Its remarkable success meant that it effectively defined the scope and content of political economy for later generations and was widely cited as an authority in favour of free market, ... but is much more than the unsubtle apologia for private enterprise that it has been made to seem, allowing as it does an important regulating function to government" (Blaug 791).

        Musical, and Poetical Relicks of the Welsh Bards:

      Edward Jones, London 1811 - Part the Second of the First Volume, containing the Music Only. 3rd ed, VG. In quarter new paper spine, with contemporary blue paper boards, corners and edges a little bumped and worn, 2 paper title labels to upper board, spine with printed paper label. Internally, frontis drawn by Louterbourg, figures engraved by HallLandscape by Middiman, [4], 124-185 pp, music scores, words and some historical notes, p 180/181 bound upside down, pencil note to tp. Uncommon. (Libri Walliae 2870). Jones, harpist and music antiquary, was a serious scholar who made a notable contribution to the antiquarianism which typified much of the scholarship of his period. His library was extensive, and his research into both primary and secondary sources, including the old Welsh laws and Welsh grammars, enabled him not only to present music, but also to write in some depth about it.

        Nouvel Atlas des Enfans et des Commerçans , ou les premiers élémens de la Géographie

      Paris: Chez Saintin, 1811. Octavo, two hand-coloured plates and seven hand-coloured maps (four double-page, three folding), some loss to a few pages (seemingly original defects in the paper, and not affecting text); half calf, a little rubbed, bumped at corners, a handsome copy. A wonderful children&#39;s Atlas, with delightful depictions of Tahiti, New Zealand and Hawaii. Although much reprinted and very popular, this work is now rare in any edition. This Atlas includes two exquisite plates, each with twelve small vignettes, detailing the peoples of the world. The first three main panels show images of European, Asian, and African scenes, while the fourth has &#39;American&#39; images; there are not only charming images of Iroquois, Californians, and Peruvians, but incredibly, the three final scenes show New Zealanders, Tahitians and inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands (here accidentally called "Americans", almost a century before their formal annexation). Each of the vignettes is also vouchsafed a very brief note, with some unusual commentary: we learn that the New Zealanders love their children, that the lower-caste Hawaiians prostrate themselves on the ground before royalty, and that the only quadrupeds in Tahiti are dogs, cats, and rats. The series of maps is equally interesting, with good depictions of France, Europe, Africa and the Americas. There is also a large double-hemisphere map of the globe by Blondeau: New Holland is shown still attached to Van Diemens Land, and the Pacific Islands are represented in some detail, showing the Society Islands, the Marquesas, and the Friendly Isles. The Sandwich Islands are also clearly marked, with the familiar caption that &#39;here Captain Cook was killed&#39;. Saintin was a publisher of popular editions of authors such as Moliere and Homer, and issued several such works of geographical instruction.
