        Wissenschaft der Logik. 2 Bde (3 Bücher). Erster Band. Die objective Logik. Zwei Bücher (Erster Band. Zweytes Buch: Die Lehre vom Wesen). (Zweiter Band:) Wissenschaft der subjectiven Logik oder die Lehre vom Begriff.

      Nürnberg, Johann Leonhard Schrag, 1812-1813-1816. 8vo. First volume, part one and two (The Objective Logic) bound in one very nice contemporary brown half calf binding with gilt and blindstamped ornamentations to back. Volume two (The Subjective Logic) bound in a nice recent brown half calf in old style with gilt and blindstamped ornamentation to back; the old end-papers are also preserved. A very nice and sound set with only a bit of scattered brwonspotting, mostly to the first part. XIV (= title-page + Vorrede), XXVIII (= Einleitung), 334; VI (= title-page + Inhaltsanzeige), 282; (2 = general title-page stating second volume of Wissenschaft der Logik), X (= title-page, Vorbericht + Inhaltsanzeige), 403, (1) pp.. The very scarce first editions of all three volumes that together constitute Hegel's second main work, his "Science of Logic", also called his "Greater Logic" (as opposed to the Logic section of the Encyclopaedia), in which logic is seen as the science of pure thought, concerning the principles by which concepts are formed, and therefore also as that which reveals to us the principles of pure knowing. THIS IS THE RAREST OF ANY OF HEGEL'S MAJOR WORKS TO FIND COMPLETE.Hegel's "Logic" is begun five years after his first major work, the "Phänomenologie des Geistes", and the five years which Hegel has had to develop his philosophy in the meantime are clearly reflected in his monumental second masterpiece. The "Logic" can be regarded as a more systematic and well organized epistemological and ontological work. It is in this groundbreaking work of German Idealism that Hegel develops his famous dialectic, which comes to determinate all later reading of his philosophy. It is Hegel's dialectic theory later condensed as "thesis-antithesis-synthesis" that is developed in this main work of 19th century philosophy. The dialectical process constitutes the movement of thought and consciousness, from basic to complex ideas, and thus demonstrates how the categorical infrastructure of thought can be laid bare by thought itself alone. With this work, Hegel is considered as having created a revolution in the understanding of Logic, because he widens it from being merely concerned with formal rules of propositions to including all of humanity. He elaborates the laws that govern the development of human practice, and as a consequence, he also uncovers the objective laws that govern the entire objective material world. Throughout the 20th century, Hegel's logical philosophy was largely neglected, but the last 40-50 years have shown a revived interest in this most fundamental of works, which is of the greatest importance for the understanding of his systematic thought.Hegel himself considered his "Logic" to be of the utmost importance, and he kept revising it throughout the years. It is very difficult to find a set of all three volumes in first editions

      R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts London: R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 1812. FIRST EDITIONS IN BOOK FORM. The Tallest Set of "Syntax" We've Ever Seen 251 x 156 mm (9 7/8 x 6 1/8"). Vol. I: Vol II & III: 260 x 160 mm. (10 1/4 x 6 3/8"). Volume III with eight pages of ads and original wrappers and ads from three monthly parts bound in at rear. Three separately published volumes. VERY HANDSOME GILT-DECORATED EARLY 20TH CENTURY DARK BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with French fillet border, spines lavishly and elegantly gilt in compartments with a flower-filled cornucopia centerpiece surrounded by small tools and volute cornerpieces, inner gilt dentelles, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. With one woodcut illustration, one engraved tailpiece, and 80 ARTFULLY HAND-COLORED AQUATINT PLATES BY THOMAS ROWLANDSON (including two engraved titles). Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of John Taylor Reynolds. Spines (uniformly) more black than blue, four of the covers with just a hint of soiling, most plates with variable offsetting (usually faint, but noticeable in a half dozen cases), other trivial imperfections, but AN EXTREMELY DESIRABLE SET nevertheless, with strong impressions and good coloring of the first edition plates, with very spacious margins, and with lovely bindings that are lustrous and virtually unworn. The Syntax "Tours" feature a pedantic clergyman and schoolmaster meeting with an onslaught of amusing misfortunes in the course of earnest holiday travels. Told through a combination of Combe's comic verses and Rowlandson's caricatures, these misadventures constituted one of the most popular literary publications of the 19th century. The original "Tour" was conceived of as a parody of the books of picturesque travels then enjoying considerable popularity, and when it met with a great popular response itself, two more tours, as well as a considerable number of imitations of the Syntax books, followed. While later editions of these works (often with dreadfully worn out plates) can rather easily be found, it is much more difficult to find the first printings, and especially so in such handsome bindings as offered here. The presence of the wrappers from a few of the parts issues also helps to set this copy apart from its competition. But most important, it is the tallest set we have ever seen, with text leaves generally having about half an inch greater margin than the plates at the bottom and fore edge. (Our first volume, separately published eight years before the second, is 3/8" shorter than volumes II and III, and even it is at least as tall as any set previously encountered.) Under normal circumstances, we would not have purchased a set with the kind of offsetting seen here, but, in our eyes, the extraordinary size of the volumes more than compensated for this defect.

        Newark Castle & Bridge Nottinghamshire

      London: Published by J. Deeley, 95 Bewick St. Soho, Feb. 1, 1812. Coloured aquatint. Printed on wove paper watermarked J. Whatman. In excellent condition with the exception of two small mended tears on the right margin. Two small mended tears on upper margin. Crease along left corner. Tiny skillfully mended tear on left margin. Image size: 12 7/8 x 19 1/8 inches. 14 1/4 x 20 1/2 inches. 16 1/8 x 22 3/8 inches. A dramatic view of Newark Castle in Nottinghamshire. The site became a fortified castle during the 12th century when Henry I gave Alexander, Bishop of Lincoln, permission to build ramparts and a moat. The castle was appropriated in 1139 by King Stephen but was reinstated to Lincoln in 1173. In 1216 King John died at the castle and thereafter it was seized by a group of barons. In 1218 Henry III besieged the castle and, after being bombarded in it for eight days, the barons surrendered. Restored and rebuilt in red sandstone by the end of the 13th century, it had become a magnificent fortified mansion. In Tudor times Henry VIII took the castle from Bishop Henry Holbeach and after that it remained in royal hands. During the Civil War, Newark was a Royalist stronghold. It was besieged four times by the Parliamentarians. King Charles I took refuge at the castle before retreating to Oxford, and the town finally surrendered its stronghold. Benezit mentions a British landscape painter by the name J. R. Hamble who was active in London during the early decades of the nineteenth century. He exhibited at rare intervals at the Royal Academy between 1803 and 1824, and was mentioned as an accomplished landscape painter. There is some confusion surrounding an engraver named J. Hamble who executed numerous topographical prints of the English countryside, and it is queried whether these artists are in fact the same person. Le Blanc mentions an engraver by the name of J. Hamble, but fails to list his works. Le Blanc, Manuel de L'Amateur D'Estampes I, p. 340; Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs, vol. 6, p. 703.
