        Contes Turcs en Langue Turque

      1812. BELLETÊTE, Henri Nicolas (compiler). Contes Turcs en Langue Turque extrait du roman intitulé Les Quarante Vizirs. Two parts in one volume. 2 ff., 258; 1 f., 48 pp. (all published). 4to., 270 x 206 mm, bound in contemporary red half morocco over orange boards, many edges uncut. Paris: Imprimerie Imperiale, 1812. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of "The History of the Forty Vezirs, or, The Story of the Forty Morns and Eves," written in Turkish by Sheykh-Zada, evidently a nom de plume (for Ahmad al-Misri?), and printed in a beautiful Arabic typeface by the Imprimerie Imperiale. "Prepared by the French orientalist Henri Nicolas Belletête, the book was edited by his friend J.J. Marcel, also an orientalist and director of the French Imperial Printing establishment. This is the first edition of the collection of Turkish folk tales, and still the only source for this linguistically old version, as the manuscript version is lost. The book is printed with the exquisite Arabic types cut in the beginning of the 17th-century with the support of François Savary de Brèves, French Ambassador in Istanbul" (Herbert Duda, Die Sprache der Qyrq Vezir-Erzählungen, Leipzig, 1930). The stories are similar in style and function to those found in the 1001 Nights and have even been included in some editions of that collection. With the extremely rare, unfinished translation into French by Belletête, printed posthumously; the translation, which seemingly ends abruptly at p. 48, was printed from the draft which was found among Belletête's papers after his death. Worming at lower gutter margin (8 ff. repaired); two gatherings browned on account of the paper stock; scattered foxing; final endleaf a modern replacement; binding worn at extremities. Still a very good copy. PROVENANCE: This copy belonged to A.-A. Renouard, the famous bibliophile and bibliographer of Aldine imprints, with his MS notes on the rarity of the work on the first blank leaf. Brunet 17781. Not in Blackmer Collection. Not in Chahine, Guide du Livre orientaliste (Paris, 1996).

        Medical Inquiries and Observations upon the Diseases of the Mind

      Rush, Benjamin, Philadelphia 1812 - viii, [9]-367, (i) blank. In the second issue signature H has been reset, with extra lines on each page, to allow for the expansion of section VIII of chapter II. Section VIII begins on p. 62. Page 9 at the very top has been cut to remove a signature? but does not affect the text. Some dampstaining to pages through p. 34. Leather is well worn with cracked joints. Benjamin Rush (1746 - 1813) was a Founding Father of the United States. Rush lived in the state of Pennsylvania and was a physician, writer, educator, humanitarian and a Christian Universalist, as well as the founder of Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Rush was a signatory of the Declaration of Independence and attended the Continental Congress. He served as Surgeon General in the Continental army, and was an opponent of Gen. George Washington. Later in life, he became a professor of chemistry, medical theory, and clinical practice at the University of Pennsylvania. Despite having a wide influence on the development of American government, he is not as widely known as many of his American contemporaries. Rush was also an early opponent of slavery and capital punishment. Despite his great contributions to early American society, Rush may be more famous today as the man who, in 1812, helped reconcile the friendship of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams by encouraging the two former Presidents to resume writing to each other.

        Lives of the British Admirals: Containing an Accurate Naval History, from the Earliest Periods. Continued to the Year 1779 by Dr. Berkenhout. A New Edition, revised and corrected, and brought down to the Present Time, by Henry Redhead Yorke.

      London: C. J. Barrington, 1812–17 - 8 volumes, octavo (214 x 134 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled sides, edges and endpapers, raised bands, titles and ruling to compartments gilt, floral rolls to boards in blind. Armorial bookplate of S. E. Widdrington to front pastedowns of all volumes except Volume VIII. Boards gently bowed, extremities slightly rubbed, minor wear to corners, frontispieces and adjacent leaves lightly foxed and browned with associated offsetting, slight spotting to text blocks, somewhat heavier in Volume I, dampstains to fore margin of Volume II, pp. 458-86. A very good set. Engraved portrait frontispiece to each volume. Best edition, revised and brought down to the 1816 Expedition against Algiers. Campbell's work, originally published between 1742 and 1744, was subsequently revised, expanded, and condensed in various editions issued up to a hundred years after his death in 1775. "A man of untiring industry and considerable accomplishment, Campbell is described as gentle in manner and of kindly disposition. There are several interesting references to him in Boswell's Life of Johnson, to both of whom he was known personally, Johnson being in the habit of going to the literary gatherings on Sunday evenings at Campbell's house in Queen's Square, Bloomsbury, until 'I began,' he said, 'to consider that the shoals of Scotchmen who flocked about him might probably say, when anything of mine was well done, "Ay, ay, he has learnt this of Cawmell."' 'Campbell is a good man, a pious man,' Johnson said of him on the same occasion: 'I am afraid he has not been in the inside of a church for many years; but he never passes a church without pulling off his hat. This shows that he has good principles.' Campbell told Boswell that he once drank thirteen bottles of port at a sitting. According to Boswell, Johnson spoke of Campbell to Joseph Warton as 'the richest author that ever grazed the common of literature'" (ODNB). This copy from the library of Captain Samuel Edward Widdrington (1787–1856), who joined the Royal Navy in 1802. By the mid 1820s, he retired and focused on writing guides to Spain, including Sketches in Spain (1834) and Spain and the Spaniards (1844), as well as occasional papers on botany. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1842.

        Expériences sur le principe de la vie, notamment sur celui des mouvemens du coeur, et sur le siège de ce principe; suivies du rapport fait a la premiere classe de l'Institut sur celles relatives aux mouvemens du coeur.

      D'Hautel, Paris 1812 - 8vo (203x127 mm). [6], [i] ii-xxiv, [1] 2-364, [2] pp., including half title, one large folding engraved plate and errata leave bound at end. Minor occasional spotting and browning to text. Full sheepskin with plain spine tooled in gilt and with red morocco label (little wear to hinges and head of spine), marbled endpapers and edges. Fine, wide-margined copy. Collated complete. ---- Norman 1324; Heirs of Hippocrates 1251; Wellcome III, p. 479; Waller 5679; Cushing L31; DSB VIII, p.132; Garrison-M. 928. Le Gallois (1770-1814) was one of the earliest of the experimental physiologists. In this, his principal work, he was the first, after Borelli, to revive the neurogenic theory of the heart's action. He describes the action of the vagus nerve on respiration. He showed that bilateral section of the vagus can produce fatal broncho-pneumonia. Le Gallois discovered the site of the respiratory center in a circumscribed area of the medulla oblongata, a discovery that replaced the belief that respiration depended on the entire brain. He also described the action of the vagus nerve on respiration, showed that bilateral section of the vagus can produce fatal broncho- pneumonia, and revived the neurogenic theory of the heart's action which states that the motor power of the heart comes from the spinal cord via the branches of the sympathetic nervous system (Norman 1324). "His experiments were remarkable in the diversity and ingenuity of their design and arranged in a logical sequence. Le Gallois's unshakable belief in the supreme importance of observations and well-performed experiments, together with his reserve in interpreting his data, indicate that he was a scientist of great stature." (DSB VIII, p.134). Il fut un des premiers physiologistes à pratiquer la méthode expérimentale et l'expérimentation animale. Il mena notamment une série d'expériences sur des animaux pour clarifier le mécanisme de la respiration. Par décapitation de vertébrés ou d'autres types de destruction ciblée des connexions nerveuses dans le cerveau et la moelle épinière, il est venu à la conclusion que la respiration est contrôlée par un centre respiratoire, qui est situé dans le bulbe rachidien. Il fut le premier à étudier le problème de la théorie neurogénique par la méthode de destruction progressive des portions successives du système nerveux central. Le Gallois fit des expériences sur le système vasculaire, la respiration artificielle, l'oxygénation et la conservation du sang. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LE HAYDINE. Ovvero Lettere su la vita e le opere del celebre Maestro Giuseppe Haydn. Dedicate al R. Conservatorio di Musica di Milano.

      Da Candido Buccinelli Stampatore - Cartaro 1812 Prima edizione. Cm.19,5x12,2. Pg.VIII, 302. Legatura in mz.pelle con piatti marmorizzati. Tassello, con mancanza, con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Tagli spruzzati e fogli di guardia marmorizzati. All'antiporta ritratto in ovale di Haydn, inciso da J. Neidl da un dipinto di Zitterer. In fine due carte raffiguranti i dettagli di alcune medaglie dedicate a Haydn. Giuseppe Carpani (Vill'Albese, 1751 - 1825), letterato, musicista e librettista, fu censore e direttore di teatro a Venezia dopo il Trattato di Campoformio del 1797. Autore di numerose traduzioni francesi, e rinomato librettista, scrisse anche il poema "In questa tomba oscura", musicato da Beethoven. Compose "Le Haydine", opera di notevole rarità, in omaggio al celebre compositore, di cui tradusse anche l'oratorio "La Creazione". Si tratta, assieme ai testi di Griesinger e Dies, di una delle prime biografie di Haydn, deceduto nel 1809. Fece scalpore il plagio che ne fece alcuni anni dopo Stendhal, usando lo pseudonimo di César Bombet.

        Six weeks before he would invade Russia, Napoleon refuses the transfer of 2,400 horses to Spain fearing they would not be easily replaceable in Poland

      "Letter Signed, ""NP"" as Emperor, 4 pages, 7.25"" x 9"", St. Cloud, April 30, 1812, in French to Minister of War Jean-Girard Lacuée, Compte de Cessac, (""Ministre pour l'Administration de la Guerre"") replying to a report concerning requirements for cavalry horses destined for the Army of Spain, forcefully rejecting the proposed transfer of 2,400 horses which must not be moved because it would be impossible to replace them in Poland. Lightly toned at margins, usual folds, else fine condition. An important letter concerning Napoleon's preparations for his ill-fated invasion of Russia. Here, he forcefully rejects Cessac's proposal to transfer 2,400 horses, including 144 destined for the cuirassiers, because he feared it would be impossible to gather that many in Poland. He demanded more information and ordered that the surplus horses be used for ""la Grande Armée dont la consommation en chevaux ne peut etre qu' extrement considerable,"" and preferring to leave the horses where they are, ""dans une guerre active, il n'y à plan, ni complet ni effectif pour la force du Regimen puisque du soir au matin cette force peut charger,"" and providing further inscriptions and reminders. Napoleon crossed the Neman River on June 24, commencing his ambitious campaign against Tsar Alexander I, which involved over 600,000 soldiers (including nearly 60,000 cavalrymen). Although the vastly outnumbered Russian army essentially melted before Napoleon's vastly superior forces, the Russians conducted a scorched-earth policy that left nothing for the French army to eat as it marched eastward. After Napoleon captured Moscow in September, he was soon forced to retreat due to a lack of supplies. His slow westward retreat was further hampered by Russian flank attacks. By the time he crossed back into Poland, his army had been reduced by nearly two-thirds. The specular defeat spelled the beginning of the end of the French Empire. "

Kurt Sprengel (1766-1833) was a Prussian botanist and physician and professor of Botany at Halle. He was viewed as the most prestigious professor in Germany. "Sprengel strongly promoted the microscopic examination of plants and studied their structure, developing his own theory of plant-cell formation. Although soon superseded, his ideas about the nature of cells and fibers provided an essential stimulus for further investigations by notable botanists, such as Heirich F. Link, Johann J. Bernhardi, and Ludorf C. Treviranus" (DSB).//Stafleu & Cowan 12.683.

Contemporary leather, rebacked with old spines preserved. Very Good. First Edition, second issue. A fifth volume--entitled Relation médicale de campagnes et voyages--was published 24 years later in 1841. "The Wellcome Library possesses two issues of the Memoire: the first contains the first three volumes only, and has an imprint stating that it was printed by J. Stone for J. Smith and F. Buisson; the second contains the 1817 volume as well, and has the imprint 'Chez J. Smith, Imprimeur-Librairie, rue de Montmorency' in Vols. I, II and IV, while Vol. III retains the original imprint. The second issue has the preliminaries of Vol. I and the half-title and title of Vol. II reset. The Waller Library possesses a four-volume set in which Vol. IV has eight pages of preliminaries" (Norman 1280). The two issues of Vol. IV differ as follows: "In one, signed 'De l'imprimerie de J. Smith' on the verso of the title page, the index to the volume is printed in quire 31 (pp. 481-84); the main text ends on leaf 30, verso (p. 478), and leaf 30[subscript 8] (presumably blank, corresponding to pp. 479-80) is cancelled [as in the copy offered here]. In the other issue, signed 'Imprimerie de Demonville' at the foot of p. 500. the index to Volume IV is printed in the preliminary quire, which consists of four leaves; the main text ends on leaf 30[subscript 8] verso (p. 480); and quire 31 is omitted, with a resulting gap in pagination. In both issues, the general index to the four volumes fills quire 32" (Grolier, One Hundred Books Famous in medicine 56). Garrison-Morton 2160. Garrison-Morton 4442 (citing Vol. 2, pp. 180-95): "Successful amputation at the hip-joint. Larrey was one of the first to perform this operation, with at least two successful cases." "Larrey's Mémoires, modeled after those of Paré, recount his experiences as a military surgeon with Napoleon's Grande Armée, along with his youthful adventures in North America as chief surgeon on the frigate Vigilante. The memoirs provide a fascinating record of the Napoleonic campaigns--including perhaps the best eyewitness account of the disastrous invasion of Russia--along with Larrey's methods of dealing with numerous medical problems he encountered on the battlefield. He was one of the first to amputate at the hip-joint, a procedure described [in] the Mémoires; he was also the first to describe trench-foot and to point out the therapeutic effects of maggots on wounds" (Norman 1280).

      Simon Schropp & Comp, Berlin 1812 - Berlin: Simon Schropp & Comp, 1812. Outline hand coloured copper engraved folding map, dissected and linen backed, ca. 28x50,5 cm (11x20 in). Engraved by Carl Jättnig d. ältern. With an elegant copper engraved publisher's advertising pasted on the verso of the linen of one of the folds. Housed in the original marbled paper slipcase, slightly rubbed. Overall a bright very good map. This detailed map of the western provinces of the Russian Empire, including Lithuania, Belorussia, part of the Ukraine, and Kursk, Orel, Smolensk, Kaluga, Tula and Moscow provinces, shows the theatre of operation of the 1812 French invasion of Russia. The copper engraved label on the linen back of the plan advertises "Magazin des beaux Arta et Cabinet de Géographie" - Kunst- und Landkarten Handlung von Simon Schropp u. Comp. (Jager Str., 24). Simon Schopp received a privilege for map publishing and trade in 1742 from the Prussian king Frederick II, and by the end of the 18th century became one of the major European map sellers.

        A Treatise of the Law Relative to the Rights of Lien and Stoppage in Transitu. A Treatise of the Law Relative to the Rights of Lien and Stoppage in Transitu

      London: W. Clarke and Sons, 1812. Octavo, armorial bookplate of Barron Field, Judge to the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 1816; very good in full calf. Handsome legal volume from the library of Barron Field. A significant work on English law from the library of Barron Field, with his bookplate. Copies of books known to have been brought to Australia at this time are quite scarce, and much work is being done on trying to reconstruct the early libraries of New South Wales.Field was a magistrate of the Supreme Court of Van Diemen's Land and Australia's first published poet, known to have brought a serious library with him to Australia when he arrived in 1817, among which this fine copy of a contemporary work on "lien" and associated debts in the law would not have been out of place. A pencil note on this copy says that it is "from the Alexander Berry collection, purchased from John Hay by Kenneth R. Stewart in 1956", which plausibly suggests that the book remained in Australia after Field returned to England in 1824.In May 1816 had been appointed to replace J. H. Bent as judge of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, arriving on the female convict transport Lord Melville in February the next year. He went on to an influential career, and was heavily involved with many benevolent societies, most nitably publishing his Geographical Memoirs of Australia in 1825.

        The Remarkable Prophecy of Jacques Cazotte [Concerning the French Revolution and Some of its Principal Promoters]

      No Place: [anonymous], 1812 Handwritten manuscript, undated. 19th century certainly, and apparently after 1812, otherwise indeterminate. xii,[1],98,[6] pp. 6.25" x 4", full straight-grained red morocco leather. Minor edge wear; Very Good Plus or even better, a nicely preserved book. See scans. A rather stupefying testament to the daunting labors of an anonymous transcriber, this 98-page handwritten manuscript - complete with handwritten index thereafter, minute handwritten footnotes within, and even handwritten pagination - relates the 1788 predictions by Jacques Cazotte, "The Prophet", of the calamities in store for the upper classes of France in the coming years. Cazotte was himself guillotined in 1792 for his royalist sympathies. Looks like he was right. Much of the contents here were, ostensibly, taken from the Literary Panorama issues - as stated, "First and Second Volumes 8vo 1812". Whether or not some of the text is also original is unknown to me, but it seems unlikely that this much handwork would have been devoted to simple copying from an early printed journal. Footnotes appear to by original to the anonymous author, who identifies himself in one of them only as a member of the Society of Friends [i.e., Quakers]. Certainly unique, this little piece stands in its own strange beauty as the product of what must have been almost unimaginably exacting work over the course of, without doubt, hundreds of hours by an author who nonetheless wished to remain completely anonymous.
