        A Catalogue of Books, in the Various Branches of Literature, which Lately formed the Library of a Distinguished Collector;

      and were Sold by Auction by Mr. Jeffery, of Pall Mall: with their Prices, and Purchasers' Names. 2 p.l., 384 pp. Tall 8vo, cont. marbled boards (carefully rebacked & recornered in sheep), flat spine gilt, uncut. London: P. Martin, 1811. The interest aroused by the Heath sale, which took place in April and May of 1810, appears to have been so widespread that the publishers felt justified in republishing the sale catalogue later in 1810, together with the prices realized and the buyers names. They added twenty-two lots, Nos. 4787-4809, which had not appeared in the original catalogue, but were obviously offered at the end of the sale. According to Fletcher, perhaps only 250 copies of the republished catalogue were printed. Due to continued great demand, a new edition of the enlarged second catalogue was prepared in 1811, with a different printer and publisher. Our copy of this new edition is a fine uncut copy, printed on special fine paper, with the printed names of the buyers and prices and the additional lots. It is rare. Benjamin Heath (1704-66), classical scholar and book collector, "was a collector of rare books from the age of thirteen, and in his lifetime distributed his library between two of his sons, but still left a large collection. There was printed in 1810 a 'Catalogue'. Heath was the principal collector of this library, but it was augmented by his son, the Rev. Benjamin Heath."-D.N.B., IX, pp. 339-40. The sale, which provoked Dibdin to paroxysms of enthusiasm (see his Bibliomania, 1811), realized 8,899 pounds. But its contents no longer belonged to Heath: he had sold it for 3,000 pounds to two booksellers, Cuthell and Martin, who then, at a huge profit, had them auctioned by Jeffrey. Heber was the chief buyer at this sale. Fine and handsome copy from the library of A.R.A. Hobson with bookplate.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations.

      London: for J. Maynard and F. Zinke,, 1811. 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. In three volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (215 x 125 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, smooth spines gilt in compartments, black labels, marbled paper sides, sprinkled edges. Tables to the text. Volumes respectively numbered 483, 484 and 485 to initial blanks in a contemporary hand. Joints superficially cracked in places, but firm, tips rubbed, vol. 3 spine darkened, preliminary blank neatly excised from each volume, vol. 2 with pale spray of foxing to prelims and short closed tear to bottom edge of title and fore edge of sig. 2K, the text unaffected, a few leaves (notably sigs. E7-8 and R7-8) clumsily opened or unopened at lower outer corners in vol. 3, the text spared. A very good copy. An appealing copy of this later London edition, reprinting the text of the fifth edition (1786), the last to be published in Smith's lifetime, and which was itself based on the text of the third edition, the last to which Smith made any significant changes. The Life and the essay by Germaine Garnier, translator of the Wealth into French, were first included together in 1806. With the ownership inscription of noted veterinary surgeon A. E. Mettam, London Road, Retford, Nottinghamshire to the front free endpaper of each volume. Mettam (1867-1917) was in general practice at Retford before becoming the first principal of the newly-established Royal Veterinary College of Ireland in 1900. "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 Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is completely convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        Book Rarities; or a Descriptive Catalogue of some of the most Curious, Rare, and Valuable Books of Early Date; chiefly in the Collection of the Right Honourable George John Earl Spencer, K.G. &c. &c. &c

      Three facsimile illus. in the text. iv, 34 pp. 8vo, cont. red half-morocco & brown drab boards, sides ruled in blind, spine lettered in gilt, a.e.g. London: Printed by W. Bulmer, 1811. First edition, limited to 36 copies only (so printed on the half-title), and a presentation copy, inscribed on the free front endpaper "With the Author's respectful Compts." This is the very rare specimen of what was to ultimately become the great catalogue of the Spencer Collection, published as the Bibliotheca Spenceriana (1814-15) in four volumes with three volumes of supplements appearing in 1822-23. In the rather charming "Address" which serves as the introduction, Dibdin asks for corrections to be pointed out to him "over a home-cook'd beaf-steak, lightly sprinkled with snow-white horse-radish, and flanked with the best lettuce my garden can bestow." A fine and lovely copy. Armorial bookplate, apparently of the Eliot family (their motto: "Credunt quod vident"), and the leather bookplate of Howard Lehman Goodhart, one of Dr. Rosenbach's good clients and father of Phyllis Goodhart Gordan. ? Windle & Pippin A17-"It may not be exaggerating to add that this was the most important prospectus of the many 'fliers' that Dibdin put abroad in his long career." Jackson 28.

        Treatises with Hand Coloured Drawings

      [Montpellier], 1811. Manuscript journal of scientific observations and erudite theories, mainly of botanical and medical interest, as well as personal reflections and autobiographical notes, most likely made by Fulcrand Nicolas Pouzin, a respected botanist, physician, and professor of Botany and Natural History of Medicine, who also served as apothecary at the Faculty of Medicine in Montpellier the year after he graduated from there. 8vo. 956 pages in a fine cursive hand, plus two fold-out hand drawn and coloured illustrations, and a coloured illustrated title page. All text is in French. Half calf over marbled boards titled to spine, a recent binding representative of the period. Volume measures approximately 19 x 23 cm. A philosophical and historical volume penned by a learned man of science, containing a selection of his own works, mostly unpublished, the author's interest and knowledge in the fields of botany and medicine are emphasized throughout. As well as, the dissertation published in Montpellier in 1799 to guide botanists in the Alps, for example, "Lettres sur la Botanique" is the heading for a log of 14 letters, 184 pages combined, written by Fulcrand to an unidentified recipient. A chart outlines the work of botanist Joseph Pitton de Tournefort who made the first definition of the concept of genus for plants. Another chart illustrates certain classifications of species according to Carl Linnaeus. Distinguishing features of plants are also classified and discussed. Medical topics include the anatomy and physiology of the brain, among other things. In a work titled "De la préminence des Sciences sur les lettres" he examines concerns of scholars in his day. Excerpts from select works in the journal: "Mon projet en attendant le printemps est de m'occuper a létude de l'histoire naturelle principalement de la Botanique. Si ce projet peut te plaire... je partagerois avec toi mes études animés pour nos mutuelles observations..." [My project whilst waiting for spring is the study of Natural History, mainly botany. If this project pleases you... I will share my active studies with you for collaborative observation...page 409 ] "La Botanique ma chère amie, cette partie de l'histoire naturelle qui s'occupe de la connaissance des plantes est une science d'autant plus précieuse que ses recherches ne tendent qu'a conserver ou a retablir la santé aux hommes... l'objet de la Botanique est immense..." [Botany, my dear friend, the part of natural history that deals with the understanding of plants, is a most valuable science as the research tends to preserve or restore the health of man ...the scope of Botany is immense... page 427 ] Capturing his two main academic interests, he writes a history on the ancient city of Maguelone, its cathedral still standing in remains some ten kilometers from Montpellier, in the Hérault department of southern France. "Notice sur l'ancienne ville de Maguelone", 48 pages in manuscript, and illustrated with a lovely watercoloured sketch drawing and map, concludes with a comment that the region is attractive to botanists, followed by directions for plant collectors seeking a particularly rare specimen. The auto-biographical preface and the journal's content together suggest that the author of this is Fulcrand Nicolas Pouzin (1774-1822), a well-known botanist and physician of Montpellier. Here he mentions joining the army in Egypt at age sixteen [1790] and spending a brief time in Italy. Also in his preface, Fulcrand reveals his propensity for written arts and father's unyielding disapproval. Several of his letters herein are signed Valé presumably his pseudonym. After completing his secondary education and serving briefly in the French Army in Egypt, the writer attempted to establish himself in the arts community in Italy, to no avail. He subsequently succumbed to continue his family's legacy. Fulcrand graduated from Montpellier's Faculty of Medicine in 1793 and was subsequently employed as apothecary there from the "trimestre de germinal ans II" which was the seventh month of the French Republican calendar (1793-1805) originally running from March 21 to April 19. Fulcrand was a professor of botany and the natural history of medicine at the Faculty of Pharmacy (as also was his brother) from its founding in 1803 until his death in 1822 at the young age of forty-eight. His portrait is preserved there today. Fulcrand wrote many scientific treatises, some of which were published by the University of Pharmacy's, and others in the journal of learned scientific societies. In the present volume we find a work titled, "Avis au Botaniste qui doit parcourir les Alpes," presumably being the original draft. Published in 1799, the full title of Fulcrand's treatise was "Avis au Botaniste qui doit parcourir les Alpes: essai présenté et soutenu à l'Ecole de médecine de Montpellier." A member of the learned society for scholars of science, "l'Académie des sciences et lettres de Montpellier" he also wrote papers for its journals. The year after this volume was made, Fulcrand made a study on the effects of natural water sources on human health, an undertaking for which he is widely remembered. His results were published in a treatise in 1812, titled "De l'insalubrité des étangs et des moyens d'y rémédier" [On the unhealthiness of ponds and ways to remedy them]. From a family of high achievers specializing in science and medicine, Fulcrand's father was Montpellier's master apothecary Hugues Pouzin. His brother, six years his senior, was also a leading pharmacist and professor. All three were associated with Montpellier's prestigious Universities of Pharmacy and Medicine. Excerpts from the preface: "A peine avois-je quitté le collège ou j'avois terminé mes études et étois-je rentré dans la maison paternelle que je m'apperçu d'une prédiction marquée... et un Beau matin je dis partir leger d'argent... je fus employé dans l'expédition de l'armée d'Egipte, j'avoir alors seize ans; au retour de l'armée je fus à Paris... enfin j'obtenu une place au fond de l'Italie... deux années étoient apeine écoulées que je me vis déplacé et sans d'autres moyens... fatigué des désagréments... je me décidai a revenir chez mes parents... Je voulus d'abord être medecin... je n'étois pas destiné a être disciple d'esculape, et je le devint de Themis... ce fut alors que je remassai et les papiers qu'en pourtant j'avois caché... et ceux que j'avois conservé dans le cours de mes voyages... dans mes moments de loisir, je les transcrit sans ordre et comme ils se presentoient sous ma main, sur les cahiers qui forment ce volume... un bon nombres des pièces se trouvent avoir étés publiées dans les journaux ou [...] à qui elles etoient addressées, a peine avoit-je achevé... reconçant alors a la manier d'écrire... pour m'occuper de mon nouvel etat, je resolu de faire de ces cahiers un volume sous le titre de Portefeuille Secret pour que si jamais j'ai des enfants ils sachent par le titre seul qu'il y a des choses qu'ils ne peuvent lire dans leurs jeunes âge... Je leurs ordones même après ma mort... de bruler ce volume n'ayant pas le courage de le faire moi même..." [No sooner had I left college where I had finished my studies and I had returned to my father's house, I realized a prediction... One beautiful morning and I departed with very little money ... employed with the expedition of the Egyptian Army, I was then sixteen; returning from the army I was in Paris ... I finally got a place at the heart of Italy ... two years were passed and I was displaced with no other means ... tired of the inconveniences... I decided to return to my parents... I wanted become a doctor... was not destined for the discipline of medicine, and I became Themis [a counselor?]... it was then that I took out the papers that I had hidden... and those which I had kept in the course of my travels... in my spare time I transcribed them in no particular order and as they presented themselves in my hand, the accounts that make up this volume... good numbers of the works were published in journals or... to whom they were addressed; barely had I finished... renouncing the occupation of writing... to take care of my new condition, I resolved to make from my writings a volume titled Secret Pocketbook, so that if I ever children they will know for the title itself that there are things they should not read in their young age... I permit them even after my death... to burn this volume, not having the courage to do it myself...] Further revealing the botanist's little known personal interests and supplementary studies, among them lepidoptera and philosophical history, his volume contains several poems such as Connal et Crimora by Turgot, letters and dissertations covering a myriad of topics, cogitative and factual. A mere glimpse at the subject matter finds reflections on the ideas of ancient philosophers, Greek mythology illustrated in theatre (Ulysses in the court of Alcinous), spiritualism, Italian sonnets translated and analysed in French, specific observations in medicine and natural history including the evolution of botanical science, and an account of an expedition to find a rare butterfly. Other examples include an essay on the Academy of the Floral Games, the most ancient literary institution of the western world, titled "Essai historique sur l'académie des jeux floraux"; a treatise on the life of Anne 'Ninon' de l'Enclos (1620-1705), a French female author, courtesan, freethinker, and patron of the arts; a review on the romance novel Eugène de Rothelin. Excerpts from his expedition to observe butterflies: "16 janvier 1801... Mystères de science... faire voyages dans les etroits et penibles sentiers... sur cette plaine vivante qui environne ton chateau - admire ce chef d'oeuvre de la creation... nous avons sous nos yeaux la livre de la nature dans lequel tout est contenu et qui est ouvert pour tout le monde... ton amie Mlle. de XXXXX qui est folle des papillons des insectes des plantes; elle jouit au moins du plaisir d'être au campagne...Deux jours après mon arrivé je fus la voire, ainsi que je te l'avais promis j'arrivai au chateau... Mlle de XXXXX était deja a battre les champs, son pere avec qui j'ai déjeunai...il ne partage nullement son enthuiasme pour les productions naturelles... et l'obliger a quitter la place qu'a lui vanter la beauté d'un papillon ou d'un insecte, nous décrire les parties et les habitudes..." [16 January 1801. Mysteries of science... to travel through narrow and distressing paths... on this living plain that surrounds your castle - admire this masterpiece of creation ... we have before our eyes the book of nature in which everything is contained and which is open for everyone... your friend Miss XXXXX who loves butterflies, insects and plants... enjoys at least the pleasure of being in the country... Two days after my arrival, as I had promised you, I was able to visit her ... upon my arrival at the castle Miss XXXXX was already out working the field, her father, with whom I had lunch... does not share her enthusiasm for nature... and forced her to leave the place which extols the beauty of a butterfly or an insect, its parts and habits described...] The Faculty of Pharmacy of Montpellier, part of the University of Montpellier, is devoted to research and education in pharmaceutical sciences and medical biology. In 1792, the College of Apothecaries was suppressed, but most of its members (White, Pouzin, Reboul, Rey, Virenque) reappeared in Year XI (1803) as professors and founders of the School of Pharmacy. [After the French Revolution, Napoleon's Law of 11 April 1803 had facilitated the creation of a separate School of Pharmacy in Montpellier.] La Faculté de Pharmacie de Montpellier, officiellement sciences pharmaceutiques et biologiques, est une unité de formation et de recherche composante de l'université de Montpellier, pour la formation, les enseignements et la recherche en lien avec les sciences pharmaceutiques et la biologie médicale. Après la Révolution française, à la suite d'abus patents, Napoléon promulgua la loi du 11 avril 1803 (21 germinal an XI) qui créa une École spéciale de pharmacie à Montpellier. En 1792 le Collège des apothicaires fut supprimé, mais la plupart de ses membres (Blanc, Pouzin, Reboul, Rey, Virenque) reparaissent en l'an XI (1803) comme professeurs-fondateurs de l'Ecole de Pharmacie. Martin Hugues César Pouzin (1768-1822), était le premier professeur de botanique et d'histoire naturelle des médicaments. Son fils aîné, Roméo Pouzin (1795-1860), devenu aussi professeur de botanique et d'histoire naturelle des médicaments Par son testament du 18 juillet 1859, Roméo Pouzin fait don à l'Ecole de sa bibliothèque, de ses collections scientifiques, de son portrait et de celui de son père. C'est là le premier exemple d'un legs important fait à l'Ecole par l'un de ses professeurs. Fulcrand Nicolas Pouzin's elder brother was Martin Hugues César Pouzin (1768-1822), a pharmacist and also a professor at the Collège des apothicaires de Montpellier [College of Apothecaries, Montpellier], known after the French Revolution as the Faculté de Pharmacie de Montpellier or École de Pharmacie [Faculty of Pharmacy]. In 1793 Martin fought in the French Revolutionary Wars with L'armée des Pyrénées orientales [The Army of the Eastern Pyrenees]. He was the first Professor of Botany and the Natural History of Medicine at the college, since its founding in 1803, and created the school's first botanical garden. Martin's son is François Hugues Roméo Pouzin (1795-1860), a pharmacist, doctor, and professor at the Faculty of Pharmacy at Montpellier, and Director of the Faculty of Pharmacy from 1856 to 1859. In his will dated 18 July 1859, Pouzin donated his library and herbarium to the college, possibly other scientific collections, and the portrait of his father. This was the first important bequest to the college by one of its professors.

        Secret Strategical Instructions

      1811 - FREDERICK, King of Prussia (SMITH, Charles Hamilton, translator). Secret Strategical Instructions, of Frederic the Second, for His Inspectors General. Translated from the German by Captain C.H. Smith. Coventry: R. Pratt et al., 1811. Slim quarto, early 20th-century three-quarter red polished calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, marbled boards and endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut (original front wrapper bound in). $9800.First translation into English of Frederick the Great's Secret Instructions, intended to complement Foster's 1762 translation of Frederick's Military Instructions, with 31 hand-colored copperplates by Smith of fortifications and strategic formations (five folding), Frederick's biographer Thomas Carlyle's copy, inscribed, "To Major Genl. Sir Colin Campbell G.C.B &c &c, with many kind regards, T. Carlyle, Chelsea, Decr 1853." With an additional gift inscription to Major-General Clayton Bissell, Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence in World War II.In the turbulent 18th century, the small state of Prussia was led by a man "of high military genius, capable of infusing into others his own undaunted spirit, while his subjects had learned both from him and his predecessors habits of patience, perseverance, and discipline"(Britannica). In the Seven Years War, which pitted Prussia against an overwhelming Continental alliance of Austria, Russia, France, and Saxony, Frederick the Second "distinguished himself by continually keeping at bay much more powerful antagonists. He took advantage of the natural lack of cohesion of coalitions and fought his enemies, so far as possible, one at a time. The superior discipline of the Prussian army allowed Frederick to march it to the theater of war in small detachments, from various directions, uniting only shortly before a battle was to be fought. He also made the most of the oblique order of battle which he had inculcated in the Prussian army and which allowed him to concentrate his forces against emerging weak spots in his enemies' more ponderous formations" (Encyclopedia of World Biography). This translation of the King of Prussia's commentary on the plates for his famous military handbook is intended as a supplement to Foster's English translation of Frederick's Military Instructions (1762), which "relates chiefly to strategies." This work focuses rather on his military tactics"" his "manner of misleading the enemy respecting the real point of attack"" even the art of rapidly passing from the defensive to the offensive state, keeping in view all the chances of success. By these principles, peculiarly his own, he was enabled often to accomplish great actions with small comparative means." This copy belonged to Thomas Carlyle, whose last major work was the epic life of Frederick the Great, History of Friedrich II of Prussia (1858-65). "Carlyle had once more set out, in his imperturbable romantic way, to do something more than make known to the world "˜what had happened.' Not but what he was, in respect of the truth of history, just as conscientious in his way as historians of the scientific school are. This is to be seen in the unwearying labor with which he collected his materials, poring over libraries of "˜dull books'; and in his efforts to see with his own eyes the backgrounds against which Frederick's life was played, the battlefields on which he fought. But there was another purpose which, in the first instance, moved him to undertake the work; he set out with the object of demonstrating the heroic in Frederick, of illustrating his thesis of "˜the hero as king" (Cambridge History). This is Carlyle's own copy of Frederick's Secret Strategical Instructions, which he presented to Major General, Sir Colin Campbell, who after having fought in the Sikh Wars in India eventually resigned his command and in March 1853 returned to England. Carlyle saw him in December, when he gave him this book.Light scattered foxing. A near-fine copy with extraordinary provenance. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Manuscript Treatises on Botany and Medicine with Hand-Coloured Drawings

      Montpellier, 1811. [Montpellier], 1811. Manuscript journal of scientific observations and erudite theories, mainly of botanical and medical interest, as well as personal reflections and autobiographical notes, most likely made by Fulcrand Nicolas Pouzin, a respected botanist, physician, and professor of Botany and Natural History of Medicine, who also served as apothecary at the Faculty of Medicine in Montpellier the year after he graduated from there. 8vo. 956 pages in a fine cursive hand, plus two fold-out hand drawn and coloured illustrations, and a coloured illustrated title page. All text is in French. Half calf over marbled boards titled to spine, a recent binding representative of the period. Volume measures approximately 19 x 23 cm. Very good condition, clean and bright, an intriguing and informative volume in a meticulous cursive hand. A philosophical and historical volume penned by a learned man of science, containing a selection of his own works, mostly unpublished, the author's interest and knowledge in the fields of botany and medicine are emphasized throughout. As well as the dissertation published in Montpellier in 1799 to guide botanists in the Alps, for example, "Lettres sur la Botanique" is the heading for a log of 14 letters, 184 pages combined, written by Fulcrand to an unidentified recipient. A chart outlines the work of botanist Joseph Pitton de Tournefort who made the first definition of the concept of genus for plants. Another chart illustrates certain classifications of species according to Carl Linnaeus. Distinguishing features of plants are also classified and discussed. Medical topics include the anatomy and physiology of the brain, among other things. In a work titled "De la prééminence des Sciences sur les lettres" he examines concerns of scholars in his day. Excerpts from select works in the journal: "Mon projet en attendant le printemps est de m'occuper a létude de l'histoire naturelle principalement de la Botanique. Si ce projet peut te plaire... je partagerois avec toi mes études animés pour nos mutuelles observations..." [My project whilst waiting for spring is the study of Natural History, mainly botany. If this project pleases you... I will share my active studies with you for collaborative observation...page 409 ] "La Botanique ma chère amie, cette partie de l'histoire naturelle qui s'occupe de la connaissance des plantes est une science d'autant plus précieuse que ses recherches ne tendent qu'a conserver ou a retablir la santé aux hommes... l'objet de la Botanique est immense..." [Botany, my dear friend, the part of natural history that deals with the understanding of plants, is a most valuable science as the research tends to preserve or restore the health of man ...the scope of Botany is immense... page 427 ] Capturing his two main academic interests, he writes a history on the ancient city of Maguelone, its cathedral still standing in remains some ten kilometers from Montpellier, in the Hérault department of southern France. "Notice sur l'ancienne ville de Maguelone", 48 pages in manuscript, and illustrated with a lovely watercoloured sketch drawing and map, concludes with a comment that the region is attractive to botanists, followed by directions for plant collectors seeking a particularly rare specimen. The auto-biographical preface and the journal's content together suggest that the author of this is Fulcrand Nicolas Pouzin (1774-1822), a well-known botanist and physician of Montpellier. Here he mentions joining the army in Egypt at age sixteen [1790] and spending a brief time in Italy. Also in his preface, Fulcrand reveals his propensity for written arts and father's unyielding disapproval. Several of his letters herein are signed Valé presumably his pseudonym. After completing his secondary education and serving briefly in the French Army in Egypt, the writer attempted to establish himself in the arts community in Italy, to no avail. He subsequently succumbed to continue his family's legacy. Fulcrand graduated from Montpellier's Faculty of Medicine in 1793 and was subsequently employed as apothecary there from the "trimestre de germinal ans II" which was the seventh month of the French Republican calendar (1793-1805) originally running from March 21 to April 19. Fulcrand was a professor of botany and the natural history of medicine at the Faculty of Pharmacy (as also was his brother) from its founding in 1803 until his death in 1822 at the young age of forty-eight. His portrait is preserved there today. Fulcrand wrote many scientific treatises, some of which were published by the University of Pharmacy's, and others in the journal of learned scientific societies. In the present volume we find a work titled, "Avis au Botaniste qui doit parcourir les Alpes," presumably being the original draft. Published in 1799, the full title of Fulcrand's treatise was "Avis au Botaniste qui doit parcourir les Alpes: essai présenté et soutenu à l'Ecole de médecine de Montpellier." A member of the learned society for scholars of science, "l'Académie des sciences et lettres de Montpellier" he also wrote papers for its journals. The year after this volume was made, Fulcrand made a study on the effects of natural water sources on human health, an undertaking for which he is widely remembered. His results were published in a treatise in 1812, titled "De l'insalubrité des étangs et des moyens d'y rémédier" [On the unhealthiness of ponds and ways to remedy them]. From a family of high achievers specializing in science and medicine, Fulcrand's father was Montpellier's master apothecary Hugues Pouzin. His brother, six years his senior, was also a leading pharmacist and professor. All three were associated with Montpellier's prestigious Universities of Pharmacy and Medicine. Excerpts from the preface: "A peine avois-je quitté le collège ou j'avois terminé mes études et étois-je rentré dans la maison paternelle que je m'apperçu d'une prédiction marquée... et un Beau matin je dis partir leger d'argent... je fus employé dans l'expédition de l'armée d'Egipte, j'avoir alors seize ans; au retour de l'armée je fus à Paris... enfin j'obtenu une place au fond de l'Italie... deux années étoient apeine écoulées que je me vis déplacé et sans d'autres moyens... fatigué des désagréments... je me décidai a revenir chez mes parents... Je voulus d'abord être medecin... je n'étois pas destiné a être disciple d'esculape, et je le devint de Themis... ce fut alors que je remassai et les papiers qu'en pourtant j'avois caché... et ceux que j'avois conservé dans le cours de mes voyages... dans mes moments de loisir, je les transcrit sans ordre et comme ils se presentoient sous ma main, sur les cahiers qui forment ce volume... un bon nombres des pièces se trouvent avoir étés publiées dans les journaux ou [...] à qui elles etoient addressées, a peine avoit-je achevé... reconçant alors a la manier d'écrire... pour m'occuper de mon nouvel etat, je resolu de faire de ces cahiers un volume sous le titre de Portefeuille Secret pour que si jamais j'ai des enfants ils sachent par le titre seul qu'il y a des choses qu'ils ne peuvent lire dans leurs jeunes âge... Je leurs ordones même après ma mort... de bruler ce volume n'ayant pas le courage de le faire moi même..." [No sooner had I left college where I had finished my studies and I had returned to my father's house, I realized a prediction... One beautiful morning and I departed with very little money ... employed with the expedition of the Egyptian Army, I was then sixteen; returning from the army I was in Paris ... I finally got a place at the heart of Italy ... two years were passed and I was displaced with no other means ... tired of the inconveniences... I decided to return to my parents... I wanted become a doctor... was not destined for the discipline of medicine, and I became Themis [a counselor?]... it was then that I took out the papers that I had hidden... and those which I had kept in the course of my travels... in my spare time I transcribed them in no particular order and as they presented themselves in my hand, the accounts that make up this volume... good numbers of the works were published in journals or... to whom they were addressed; barely had I finished... renouncing the occupation of writing... to take care of my new condition, I resolved to make from my writings a volume titled Secret Pocketbook, so that if I ever children they will know for the title itself that there are things they should not read in their young age... I permit them even after my death... to burn this volume, not having the courage to do it myself...] Further revealing the botanist's little known personal interests and supplementary studies, among them lepidoptera and philosophical history, his volume contains several poems such as Connal et Crimora by Turgot, letters and dissertations covering a myriad of topics, cogitative and factual. A mere glimpse at the subject matter finds reflections on the ideas of ancient philosophers, Greek mythology illustrated in theatre (Ulysses in the court of Alcinous), spiritualism, Italian sonnets translated and analysed in French, specific observations in medicine and natural history including the evolution of botanical science, and an account of an expedition to find a rare butterfly. Other examples include an essay on the Academy of the Floral Games, the most ancient literary institution of the western world, titled "Essai historique sur l'académie des jeux floraux"; a treatise on the life of Anne 'Ninon' de l'Enclos (1620-1705), a French female author, courtesan, freethinker, and patron of the arts; a review on the romance novel Eugène de Rothelin. Excerpts from his expedition to observe butterflies: "16 janvier 1801... Mystères de science... faire voyages dans les etroits et penibles sentiers... sur cette plaine vivante qui environne ton chateau - admire ce chef d'oeuvre de la creation... nous avons sous nos yeaux la livre de la nature dans lequel tout est contenu et qui est ouvert pour tout le monde... ton amie Mlle. de XXXXX qui est folle des papillons des insectes des plantes; elle jouit au moins du plaisir d'être au campagne...Deux jours après mon arrivé je fus la voire, ainsi que je te l'avais promis j'arrivai au chateau... Mlle de XXXXX était deja a battre les champs, son pere avec qui j'ai déjeunai...il ne partage nullement son enthuiasme pour les productions naturelles... et l'obliger a quitter la place qu'a lui vanter la beauté d'un papillon ou d'un insecte, nous décrire les parties et les habitudes..." [16 January 1801. Mysteries of science... to travel through narrow and distressing paths... on this living plain that surrounds your castle - admire this masterpiece of creation ... we have before our eyes the book of nature in which everything is contained and which is open for everyone... your friend Miss XXXXX who loves butterflies, insects and plants... enjoys at least the pleasure of being in the country... Two days after my arrival, as I had promised you, I was able to visit her ... upon my arrival at the castle Miss XXXXX was already out working the field, her father, with whom I had lunch... does not share her enthusiasm for nature... and forced her to leave the place which extols the beauty of a butterfly or an insect, its parts and habits described...] The Faculty of Pharmacy of Montpellier, part of the University of Montpellier, is devoted to research and education in pharmaceutical sciences and medical biology. In 1792 the College of Apothecaries was suppressed, but most of its members (White, Pouzin, Reboul, Rey, Virenque) reappeared in Year XI (1803) as professors and founders of the School of Pharmacy. [After the French Revolution, Napoleon's Law of 11 April 1803 had facilitated the creation of a separate School of Pharmacy in Montpellier.] La Faculté de Pharmacie de Montpellier, officiellement sciences pharmaceutiques et biologiques, est une unité de formation et de recherche composante de l'université de Montpellier, pour la formation, les enseignements et la recherche en lien avec les sciences pharmaceutiques et la biologie médicale. Après la Révolution française, à la suite d'abus patents, Napoléon promulgua la loi du 11 avril 1803 (21 germinal an XI) qui créa une École spéciale de pharmacie à Montpellier. En 1792 le Collège des apothicaires fut supprimé, mais la plupart de ses membres (Blanc, Pouzin, Reboul, Rey, Virenque) reparaissent en l?an XI (1803) comme professeurs-fondateurs de l?Ecole de Pharmacie. Martin Hugues César Pouzin (1768-1822), était le premier professeur de botanique et d?histoire naturelle des médicaments. Son fils aîné, Roméo Pouzin (1795-1860), devenu aussi professeur de botanique et d?histoire naturelle des médicaments Par son testament du 18 juillet 1859, Roméo Pouzin fait don à l?Ecole de sa bibliothèque, de ses collections scientifiques, de son portrait et de celui de son père. C?est là le premier exemple d'un legs important fait à l?Ecole par l?un de ses professeurs. Fulcrand Nicolas Pouzin's elder brother was Martin Hugues César Pouzin (1768-1822), a pharmacist and also a professor at the Collège des apothicaires de Montpellier [College of Apothecaries, Montpellier], known after the French Revolution as the Faculté de Pharmacie de Montpellier or École de Pharmacie [Faculty of Pharmacy]. In 1793 Martin fought in the French Revolutionary Wars with L'armée des Pyrénées orientales [The Army of the Eastern Pyrenees]. He was the first Professor of Botany and the Natural History of Medicine at the college, since its founding in 1803, and created the school's first botanical garden. Martin's son is François Hugues Roméo Pouzin (1795-1860), a pharmacist, doctor, and professor at the Faculty of Pharmacy at Montpellier, and Director of the Faculty of Pharmacy from 1856 to 1859. In his will dated 18 July 1859, Pouzin donated his library and herbarium to the college, possibly other scientific collections, and the portrait of his father. This was the first important bequest to the college by one of its professors. . Very Good.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Windischmann"). Aschaffenburg, 7. IV. 1811.

      1811. 1 S. 4to. An den namentlich nicht genannten Altphilologen und Redakteur der "Jenaischen allgemeinen Literaturzeitung" Heinrich Karl Abraham Eichstädt (1771-1848) betr. seiner Rezension von Goethes "Farbenlehre": "Euer Wohlgeboren haben nun seit dem November vor[igen] Jahr[es] die Rez[ension] der Göthischen Farbenlehre von mir in Handen. Ich hatte Ihnen im Übersendungsbriefe bemerkt, daß, wenn Sie etwas auszusetzen fänden, Sie mir dieselbe sogleich wieder zurücksenden sollten, weil ich keinen fremden Eingrif[f] in meine Arbeit dulden, sondern wo es nothwendig, selbst nachhelfen will. Ich muß also annehmen, daß diese Arbeit keinen weiteren Bedenklichkeiten ausgesetzt war und nehme mir deshalb die Freiheit Sie zu fragen, woher nun noch die Verzögerung des Abdrucks komme [...]". - Windischmanns ausgesprochen positive Rezension sollte mit gehöriger Verzögerung erst im Januar 1813 erscheinen. - C. J. H. Windischmann wirkte seit 1818 als Professor der Philosophie an der damals neugegründeten Universität Bonn und lehrte auch Enzyklopädie und Geschichte der Medizin an der Medizinischen Fakultät. "In seinen Publikationen behandelte er medizinische, naturphilosophische und philosophische Themen; 1804 erschien von ihm eine Übersetzung des 'Timaios' von Platon. Im romantischen Geist der Zeit verstand Windischmann die historische Betrachtung zugleich als Gegenwartsanalyse und Zukunftsprognose [...] und setzte sich für eine Verbindung der Medizin mit der Philosophie und Theologie ein" (DBE). - Mit einigen zeitgen. Bemerkungen und Notizen von anderen Händen.

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, in the Arabic language

      Newcastle-upon-Tyne: Sarah Hodgson 4to (27.1 cm, 10.7"). [818] pp.. 1811 First edition of this Arabic Bible, sponsored in part by the British and Foreign Bible Society and the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. => Printer Sarah Hodgson's impressive accomplishment here, produced far from the center of British printing in London, marked a new growth in English printing in Arabic script. The main title-page is in English, with the rest of the volume (including the separate title-page for the New Testament) entirely in Arabic. The edition was supervised at first by Joseph Dacre Carlyle, professor of Arabic at Cambridge, and after Carlyle's death by Henry Ford, Lord Almoner's Reader in Arabic at Oxford; the translation was based on that of the London Polyglot of 1657. The translators involved in that 17th-century project were Saadiah Ben Fayumí and others. Contemporary Cambridge-style speckled and plain calf, framed and panelled in blind, rebacked with complementary speckled calf and hinges (inside) reinforced, spine with blind-ruled raised bands and gilt-stamped leather title-label; sides with scuffs and spots of discoloration and corners refurbished. Mild to moderate foxing; two pages with minor offsetting from now-absent laid-in slip; a few corners bumped. => A solid, attractive copy of this significant publication.

        Denkwürdigkeiten aus dem Leben der Königl. Preußischen Prinzessinn . (Schwester Friedrichs des Großen) Markgräfin von Bayreuth vom Jahr 1709 bis 1733. Von ihr selbst in französischer Sprache geschrieben. 2 Bände. 2 Bl., 360 S.; 2 Bl., 223, 290 S. Kleisterpapier-Pappbände d. Z. (berieben, Kanten beschabt) mit vergold. Rückenschild.

      Tübingen, J. G. Cotta, 1810-1811. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe, ziemlich selten. Eine Fundgrube für die Sittengeschichte des 18. Jahrhunderts. Die Schwester Friedrichs II. (1709-1758) "schont mit ihrer scharfen märkischen Zunge . weder Kind noch Kegel und ist eingeweiht in alles, selbst die intimsten Intrigen der hervorragendsten Höfe ihrer Zeit, urwüchsig bis zum Äußersten" (Hayn/G.). Der häufig fehlende Anhang zu Band 2 enthält in französischer Sprache Ch. L. v. Seckendorffs 'Journal secret' für 1734-38, eine wichtige Quelle für die Heiratspläne der preußischen Königin für Friedrich mit einer englischen Prinzessin. Diese 'Denkwürdigkeiten' sind ein Muster für die Schwierigkeit, allen Beteiligten historisch gerecht zu werden. Die grellen Schilderungen, ja Zerrbilder Friedrich Wilhelms I. als brutalen Korporal und Prügelmeister, als polternden bildungsfeindlichen und barbarischen Tyrannen hatten anfangs den König scheinbar für immer gebrandmarkt. Die Geschichtsschreibung beurteilte schließlich die wahre Bedeutung des Königs für die Entwicklung des preußischen Staates und fand für diese Denkwürdigkeiten die schärfsten Worte. Erst spät wurde durch R. Fester in seiner psychologisch fundierten Darstellung das Fundament skizziert, auf dem diese Darstellungen basieren. Er schildert die skandalöse Erziehungssituation, durch die das empfindsame Kínd an Leib und Seele Schaden nahm, er schildert die Treibhausluft, in der jene altkluge Frühreife gedieh, er würdigt die Schwierigkeit íhrer Stellung zwischen Vater und Mutter und findet in den fürchterlichen häuslichen Szenen nach dem Fluchtversuch des Kronprinzen die Wurzeln einer nervösen Erkrankung, die der Prinzessin für immer das seelische Gleichgewicht raubte. Die Ansbacher Zeit förderte nur diese Entwicklung. "Die engen Verhältnisse ihres fränkischen Ländchens drohten sie zu ersticken. Ihr Stolz litt unsäglich unter der demütigenden Armseligkeit ihrer Lage, zu der eine zunehmende Kränklichkeit kam. Kann man sich da wundern, daß eine schon früh vorhandene Neigung zu trübsinnigen Betrachtungen und Rückblicken sich zu jener galligen Stimmung steigerte, von der diese Aufzeichnungen ein so beredtes Zeugnis ablegen, daß die Fürstin während der Arbeit an ihren Denkwürdigkeiten die Herrschaft über sich selbst verlor und für die ihr zugefügten Mißhandlungen mit ihrer scharfen Zunge eine späte Rache nahm" (Klaiber). Trotzdem gehören die an der französischen Memoirenliteratur geschulten Aufzeichnungen zu den fesselndsten ihrer Art. Sie schildert ihr und ihres Bruders Friedrich Ausgeliefertsein an die zerstrittenen Eltern mit ihren widersprüchlichen politischen Ambitionen und Heiratsplänen, beschreibt die spartanischen Tafelrunden im Elternhaus, die strenge Stille im Haus während des Mittagsschlafes des Vaters, seinen Gang in die Tabagie und die über dem ganzen Tagesablauf drohend hängende Gewitterwolke der unberechenbaren Launen des Königs, die auch zu allerlei tragikomischen Zwischenspielen Anlasws gibt. "Noch derber betätigt sich ihre Freude an grotesken Schilderungen und Übertreibungen in der Beschreibung ihres Empfangs in Bayreuth. Die Schloßtreppe im Hof kommt ihr wie eine Leiter vor, der Adel, der sie bewillkommnet, besteht aus lauter Gesichtern, mit denen man kleine Kinder aus Furcht zu Bette jagen könnte, in den altmodisch gestutzten Haaren der Herrschaften erblickt sie Läuse, die ihren Stammbaum ebensohoch hinaufführen können wie ihre Inhaber, die Kleider bestehen aus Erbschaftsstücken ihrer Voreltern, dazu sind die Bedauernswerten vielfach krätzig und können sich ihrer Aussprache und Mundart wegen mit der neuen Landesmutter, der alles, was sie sagen, wie hebräisch klingt, nur schwer verständigen" (Klaiber). – Titel mit gelöschtem Stempel. Schönes, breitrandiges und unbeschnittenes Exemplar. – Fromm 28546; Hayn/G. II 448 Klaiber S. 41 ff.; Borst 1109; Fischer, Cotta, 760, 825. Vgl. Westphal S. 102 f.
