OEHLER, ANDREW
1811. OEHLER, ANDREW. The Life, Adventures, and Unparalleled Sufferings of Andrew Oehler: Containing an Account of his Travels ... Written by Himself. Trenton: D. Fenton; L. Deare, printer, N. Brunswick, 1811. 226 p. Contemporary mottled sheep (hinges cracked but solid). Some dampstains, but quite good. First and only edition of the first autobiographical account of a magician to be published in America. One of two issues with slightly different title page imprints. A delightful narrative of the adventures, misfortunes, and hairbreadth escapes of a picaresque traveler, chiefly in Europe and the southern United States. Oehler, according to his own account, was born in Germany in 1781. He came to America early in 1800, landing first at Baltimore, then journeying through Maryland and Virginia. In 1801 he left for Santo Domingo, where he arrived in the midst of the black insurrection, was taken to Toussaint, and joined the insurrectionary army. The next year he was in South Carolina, where he learned to build hot-air balloons and did public ascensions there and in Georgia and Tennessee. He next learned legerdemain and conducted seances, attracting crowds and filling his pockets. Over the next several years he added fireworks and atmospheric electricity to his bag of tricks, traveling throughout the south before heading north to Philadelphia, then New Jersey. The appendix following the text describes some of the technical principles behind his slight-of-hand and electricity demonstrations.

WOODVILLE, William.
Cheltenham: Printed for J. and J. Griffith, 1811. 1. FIRST EDITION, and one of the most important works on vaccination after Jenner's Inquiry itself: the first large-scale clinical trial of vaccination. "News of Jenner's discovery had aroused interest among medical men, but his source of vaccine had been lost and further experiments with the new procedure were therefore impossible. Woodville remedied this in January 1799, when he was told of an outbreak of cowpox in a London dairy. Having compared the lesions among the milkers with Jenner's illustration, Woodville took some fluid for use as vaccine at the Smallpox Hospital. The results of this action, the first large-scale trial of vaccination, were published as the Report of a Series of Inoculations for the Variolae vaccinae or Cow Pox (1799). Its case histories of two hundred vaccinations, most of which were subsequently tested by inoculation, did much to prove the efficacy of the new practice" (ODNB). 2 leaves, 156 pages. 2. SOLE EDITION. "However, the Reports [see item 1 above] also cast the first doubts as to the merits of vaccination. Woodville noted that vaccination frequently produced smallpox-like eruptions which he believed might communicate smallpox. This undermined one of the principal advantages of the new practice over inoculation--patients did not have to be isolated. Woodville's observation sparked off a dispute between Woodville and Jenner. Jenner blamed Woodville's results on contaminated vaccine: Woodville responded with his Observations on Cow-Pox (1800) arguing that hybridization between cowpox and sma … [Click Below for Full Description]

Genlis, Stephanie Felicite, Comtesse de. Colour-printed mythological emblems
Paris, Charles Barrois, 1810-1811. 2 volumes in 8vo. [4] + xxx + 166 (misprinted 266)p; [4] + iv + 228p + [1]f. With 78 stipple-engraved colour-printed plates by Gaitte after designs by the author. Contemporary mottled calf; gilt; lightly worn. First editions of both volumes printed in colour of this exquisite emblem book on Greek and Roman gods, their attributes and qualities. Each deity or virtue is illustrated by the name calligraphically composed and ingeniously entwined with pictorial symbols. Madame de Genlis (1746-1830) became governess to the future king, Louis-Philippe, in 1782, instilling in him liberal ideas. Her teaching anticipated modern methods particularly in her use of visual equivalents to absorb knowledge in a way best suited to the individual. Favourable to the Revolution, she nevertheless spent six years abroad between 1793 and 1799 when Napoleon honoured her with a pension of 6000 francs and apartments at the Arsenal. The present publication draws inspiration from icons of empire. The work was issued in black-and-white, with a few copies produced in delicate colour printing. We are offering the coloured issue. Several plates are signed by the engraver (Antoine Joseph) Gaitte (b.1753) who, among others, worked for the architect, Claude Nicholas Ledoux. A well preserved, fresh set; with contemporary armorial bookplate of the politician and bibliophile, Alexandre-Charles-Omer Rousselin de Corbeau, comte de Saint-Albin (1773-1847) incorporating motto, ‘Nil Nisi Virtute’, inside front cover of each volume.

[FRESENIUS, Johann Franz Theodor].
Jenaische Allg. Literatur-Zeit. VIII.II (no. 110, 15 May 1811); KVK (5, 3 & 1 copies); WorldCat (4, 1 & 1 copies). First and only edition, including the two rare supplements, of a work on quadrature that the author calls a "new very simple theory for squaring curved surfaces based on the summation of infinite series," intended to make differential and integral calculus unnecessary. His goal is to demonstrate the usefulness of sums of infinite series in place of differential and integral calculus. The 1811 review found little new in Fresenius's "theory" and noted its similarity to the methods of John Wallis's 1656 Arithmeticam Infinitorum. Little is known about the author, who signed only the dedications, but parts 1 and 2 are dedicated to teachers, suggesting he was still young. Fresenius is therefore probably the identically named author of a half dozen works on religion, history and education published in Frankfurt in the years 1836 to 1853, including Zur Geschichte der Erfindung des Buchdrucks.In very good condition, with part 3 slightly browned and its edges tattered. An immature mathematical work by a curious author, with the rare supplements containing clues to his early life.

CHASTENET DE PUYSEGUR (Marquis A.M.J. de)
Paris, Dentu, 1811. cart. papier marbré bleu moderne genre ancien, bon exemplaire à toutes marges. Edition originale d'une des premières études d'importance sur le somnambulisme artificiel et naturel. Importante synthèse des travaux de Puységur, disciple de Mesmer et découvreur du somnambulisme magnétique. Il complète et amplifie ici les annonces faites dans ses "Mémoires" de 1784-86, réaffirme que le différence majeure entre le somnambulisme artificiel et naturel réside dans le phénomène de dépendance du sujet magnétisé par rapport au magnétiseur dans le cas du somnambulisme artificiel. Il constate qu'en général le somnambulisme naturel est lié à l'état de sommeil. Il observe les modifications de conscience en état de sommeil magnétique, ce qui ouvrira la voie à la notion "d'inconscient". Il donne aussi la description des précieuses techniques que Mesmer refusait de révéler. Après une analyse détaillée de différents cas et manifestations somnambuliques, facultés des somnambules, clairvoyance, vision, etc. il conclut sur les dangers de l'utilisation du somnambulisme magnétique.

Robert Kerr (1757-1813)
Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood; J. Murray; J. Cuming, 1811. First edition, first printing of 16 (of 18) volume set. 1811-1815. Matching half leather and marbled boards. Very good condition. Front and bottom edges trimmed with light decorative sprinkled marbling. To my untrained eye I think these may have had the spines expertly relaid or repaired approximately 100 or more years ago (see scan). Boards appear original. Volume 10 has a more recent matching spine. Internally they are excellent in every way. Occasional pencil notations on endpapers but no other markings. Set looks to have been collected sequentially and carefully maintained since. All bindings are sound. Volumes are complete with all maps and endpapers; measure 8 3/8 x 5 1/2 inches (21 x 13.5 cm). Volumes 1-16 were issued between 1811 and 1815. Volumes 17 and 18 are absent. The author died in 1813 so no doubt there were delays in publishing the final volumes and the original collector lost interest. I believe v. 17 was issued in 1816 and v. 18 in 1824. The present set contains 16 maps and one folding plate (Captain Cook's Polynesian vocabulary). This is a compilation of journals and texts from every major European voyage of discovery from antiquity to 1800. Kerr is not so much an author as an editor. Wherever possible he reproduced the original texts and journals. He edited them to reduce redundancy but maintain fidelity to the original text. His first volume shows the trouble he went to. He has rendered into English 9th century Icelandic texts then proceeds on to 9th and 10th century Anglo-Saxon texts. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ferrer Maldonado, Laurent
Milano: Dalla Tipografia di Giovanni Silvestri..., 1811. [4],98,[1]pp., errata leaf, plus two folding sheets comprised of seven maps and a folding plan with three views. Half title. Tall quarto. Original limp paper-covered boards. Boards scuffed and slightly stained, small paper labels on each cover. Previous owner's library bookplate on front pastedown, light occasional foxing. Internally a fine crisp copy. The second and best edition of this interesting work. Lada-Mocarski lists this edition rather than the first (Milan, 1810) as the preferable one. It is the supposed narrative of a voyage through the Polar Sea and the Straits of Anian to the west coast of America in 1588, performed by Laurent Ferrer Maldonado. Carlo Amoretti, the librarian of the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan, believed in the authenticity of the narrative and saw it into print. Skeptics quickly attacked the work, and by the mid-19th century it had been established as spurious by further discovery, but at the time of publication it caused a lively debate and fueled further interest in northwest exploration. The first map, which takes up an entire folding sheet, traces Maldonado's supposed route through the polar region. The other six maps are contained on a single sheet and depict various points in the polar regions. The folding plan contains three topographical views of the Straits of Anian. HOWES F95.

ARNIM, LUDWIG ACHIM V.
Heidelberg, bei Mohr und Zimmer, 1811. (3) Bll., 436 S. Halblederband mit Rückenschild und reicher –vergoldung. - Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke VI,74,27; Mallon 69; Neufforge S.152). – Titel auf Velin, die ersten und letzten je ca fünf Bll. etwas stockfleckig. Zweiseitig unbeschnitten. Kopfgoldschnitt. - In der Widmung an C.BRENTANO und J.GÖRRES, "zur Erinnerung guter und böser Tage in Heidelberg", bezeichnet ARNIM Halle und Jerusalem als "ein Trauerspiel in zwei Lustspielen". Für "Halle, ein Studentenspiel." hat ARNIM den Stoff aus GRYPHIUS' barockem Trauerspiel "Cardenio und Celinde" entnommen und, erweitert um Erinnerungen aus der eigenen Studentenzeit in Halle, zu einer ganz eigenen Schöpfung verarbeitet. "Jerusalem. Ein Pilgerabentheuer." orientiert sich in gewisser Weise an CALDERÓN. Verbunden sind beide Stücke, die niemals auf der Bühne waren, durch die hier erstmals in ein Drama eingefügte Figur des AHASVERUS, des ewigen Juden. "So eng sich ARNIM, vor allem im ersten Teil, inhaltlich und in der Zeichnung der Charaktere an das Trauerspiel von GRYPHIUS anlehnt, so radikal befreit er sich in der dramatischen Technik von der strenggefügten Struktur des Barockdramas. Der Romantiker schwelgt - unter dem Einfluß SHAKESPEAREs - in einer bunten Fülle sinnbildhafter Gestalten und Geschehnisse. Gegensätzliche Episoden werden aneinandergereiht, Phantastisches paart sich mit Wirklichem ." (KNLL 1,733). "Im Grunde genommen hat ARNIM in der zweiteiligen Bearbeitung von Cardenio und Celinde dasselbe getan, was GOETHE in den zwei Teilen seines Faust mit der Faustsage unternahm. Es ist ein … [Click Below for Full Description]

Telfair, Charles].
London, Thomas Egerton (back of title-page and colophon: G. Hayden), 1811. 8vo. (6), 116 pp. With a folding lithographed plan of Saint-Denis. Contemporary dark green cloth, rebacked with the original backstrip laid down. Rare first and only edition of a firsthand account of the British invasion of the Island of Bourbon (Réunion) in 1810 by "an officer of the expedition", sometimes ascribed to Charles Telfair (1778-1833), an Irish botanist who visited Réunion and Mauritius in 1810 as a ship's surgeon to the Royal Navy. The author briefly narrates the events leading up to the invasion, and in more detail describes the invasion itself, providing much information on the ships, squadrons, regiments and officers involved. "His object was to commemorate facts, while he was a spectator of them, and to stamp them with the sentiments they excited" (p. [5]). Also included are the general instructions and directions to officers at the head of brigades, issued by Lt. Col. Keating (pp. 38-53), and transcripts of letters, decrees and newspaper articles (or extracts thereof) relating to the invasion (pp. 54-102). The book closes with an appendix on the island's "value" as a colony, observing its population, climate, agriculture, trade, and infrastructure (pp. 103-116). The island of Bourbon in the Indian Ocean had been in French hands since 1715, until the British Royal Navy invaded it in 1810. The main objective of the expedition, led by Josias Rowley (1765-1842), was to capture the island as well as Mauritius so as "to secure, on the most permanent foundation, the dominion of England aga … [Click Below for Full Description]

THAER Albrecht Daniel
Paris, J. J. Paschoud, 1811-16. 4 tomi in 2 voll. in-4° (24 x 19) di pp. IX+372 con 4 tabelle ripieg. f.t.; pp. XXVII+273; pp. VII+304, con 13 tavv. incise in rame, ripiegate f.t.; pp. (4)+473. Bella leg. coeva mezza pelle, titoli in oro ai dorsi. Cerniere incrinate, ma per il resto bellissimo esemplare. (4707) Con questo ampio studio, fondato sulle migliori conoscenze scientifiche dell'epoca situata a cavallo tra XVIII e XIX secolo, nel campo della chimica, fisica, storia naturale e geologia, l'autore si prefisse di migliorare le conoscenze dei coltivatori nelle diverse branche dell'economia rurale, evitando loro errori e carenze. L'opera, pubblicata per la prima volta a Berlino nel 1809-12 col titolo Grundsaetze der rationellen Landwirtschaft, fu subito tradotta in francese dal barone Crud, membro della "Societé Suisse des Sciences Naturelles", autore a sua volta di numerosissime memorie e rapporti di utilità pubblica nel campo dell'agricoltura e dell'economia. Il traduttore, nella sua prefazione, sottolinea la necessità di sostenere il progresso dell'agricoltura in funzione della necessità di incrementare la produzione dei mezzi di sussistenza per sopperire alla crescita demografica; e fornisce anche gli elementi di conversione delle unità di misura germaniche in quelle del sistema metrico francese . Le tredici incisioni si riferiscono a sistemi di canalizzazione ed irrigazione. Kress, B.5582, cita la prima ediz. tedesca. Daniel Thaer (1752-1828), celebre agronomo prussiano, fondatore di un istituto agrario per la formazione di un nuovo ceto di agronomi, studiò in modo a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Michaud (poi, negli ultimi voll., Beck Libraire), 1811-57. Complessivamente 84 voll. in-8° (20 x 13), ciascuno di pp. 4-600 circa. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle con tasselli bicolori per i titoli. Fioriture sparse per la qualità della carta, ma buon esemplare, in legatura omogenea. (6292) Tutto il pubblicato, completo dei supplementi, di quest'opera poderosa che impegnò l'editore Michaud (1772-1857) fino alla sua morte. L'ultimo volume del Supplemento, apparso postumo, si interrompe alla voce Vandamme. Esso costituisce tuttora un repertorio di consultazione indispensabile, fonte di notizie biobibliografiche su di una folla incredibile di personaggi. "Sans être un livre parfait, cet important ouvrage était incontestablément, lorsq'il parut, le meilleur de ce genre qui existât; et l'on a remarqué avec plaisir que le derniers volumes étaient généralement rédigés avec plus de soins que les premiers" (Brunet, I/col. 948). Altri repertori furono pubblicati in concorrenza in quegli stessi decenni, ma quello del Michaud fu l'unico a vedere il completamento, con un'impresa editoriale che lo impegnò per quasi mezzo secolo.

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]

Lory Gabriel dis. - 1784-1846
Lago Maggiore - Arona 1811 - Veduta della cittadina di Arona e del Sacro Monte ove sorge la colossale Statua di San Carlo Borromeo, ripresi lungo la strada del Sempione che conduce a Milano. " Cette vue donne une idèe de la partie méridionale du lac Majeur, et des travaux que la route a nécessités sur ses bords." Sopra la cittadina si scorgono i resti di quel castello, che fu bombardato e distrutto qualche anno prima da Napoleone Bonaparte: "Parmi le châteaux qui dominent plusieurs de ces collines, celui d'Arona, bâti jadis au-dessus de la ville.rappelle d'intéressants souvenirs."Arona renferme de beaux batiments et un port assez vaste: le commerce y fleurit par le passage des marchandises de la Méditerranée et de l'Italie que l'on transporte en Allemagne et en Suisse". Ottima impressione, colori vivi. Tre piccoli strappetti al margine inferiore, felicemente restaurati. Rif: Zipoli, "Elogio del lago Maggiore", p. 272, n° 33.* Voyage Pittoresque de Genève à Milan par le Simplon mm 195x280
