        Plan von Moskau nach der neuesten russischen Original Aufnahme . gewidmet von Goetz und Dietrich. Plan de Moscou. [???? ?????? ??????].

      Königlichen Beschäftigungsanstalt am Anger Munchen 1812 - Hand-coloured lithographed broadsheet plan (98 x 91.5 cm), printed on four sheets, table of Moscow districts lower right, rolled in original cardboard tube. With explanation of the plan of Moscow in Russian, French and German (19.7 x 11.7 cm), 40 pp. Very fresh example of this incunable of lithography with the extremely rare "Explication du Plan de Moscou". One of the earliest lithographic plans of the city, interestingly printed in Bavaria shortly before the invasion of Russia in 1812. Since this Catholic state was then already under Napoleonic rule, the plan was printed in French for the conquerors coming to Moscow with Napoleon. The accompanying booklet lists in Russian, French and German more than 300 sites indicated on the plan, including governmental buildings, barracks, food warehouses, as well as gateways and bridges. The result is a clear picture of the municipal, military and strategic infrastructure of the city immediately before the destruction by the "Fire of Moscow". WorldCat locates only three copies of the plan in public libraries: in Cambridge University library, University Library LMU in Munich and Bavarian State Library.

Essai sur le Tartrate de Potasse Antimonie ou Tartre emetique ... par Francois Berta de la Venerie Département du Po. Imprimerie de Louis Soffietti, 1814. pp. 25, 1. Prospero Balbo, conte di Vinadio (Torino 1762 - 1837) fu un intellettuale e politico italiano, sindaco di Torino, presidente perpetuo dell'Accademia delle Scienze di Torino, rettore dell'Università di Torino e ministro del Regno di Sardegna. Torinese di nascita, prese parte all'Accademia delle Scienze dal 1783, anno della sua fondazione. Nel 1788 ne fu nominato segretario aggiunto e dal 25 novembre 1815 presidente perpetuo. Tra il 1789 e il 1791, partendo dal lavoro fatto da Gianfrancesco Galeani Napione, scrisse cinque saggi di aritmetica politica. In qualità di politico, ebbe un ruolo di mediazione tra partito del legittimismo monarchico (conservatore) ed il partito filo-francese (innovatore). Nel 1789, dopo un trascorso nella giunta comunale, divenne sindaco di Torino e si sposò con Enrichetta Tapparelli d'Azeglio di appena sedici anni. Da lei ebbe tre figli: il primo fu Cesare Balbo, nato nello stesso anno e futuro primo ministro del Regno di Sardegna, poi Ferdinando e Paolina. Nel 1796, per volere di Vittorio Amedeo III, partì alla volta di Parigi in qualità di ambasciatore, mentre nel 1805 per volere di Napoleone fu nominato Rettore dell'Università, ma con l'avvento della restaurazione, nel 1814 fu allontanato dalle cariche. Fu richiamato da Vittorio Emanuele I con l'obiettivo di sistemare le finanze e nel 1819 fu ministro della Pubblica Istruzione, mentre tra il 1820 ed il 1821 fu ministro degli Interni, ma a seguito della bozza di costituzione che presentò al Re l'11 marzo 1821 divenne nemico di Carlo Felice chiudendo così la sua carriera politica. Dal 1821 al 1831 dedicò il suo impegno agli studi, dopodiché ebbe un altro incarico come capo della sezione di finanze del Consiglio di Stato ma si dimise nel 1834. Fu il primo presidente della Deputazione di storia patria (poi Deputazione subalpina di storia patria), istituita da Carlo Alberto nel 1833 per sviluppare gli studi sulla storia dei suoi domini e della dinastia. Morì nel 1837. Un unico volume. 12 pagine non numerate di Elenco ed Indice manoscritto al fondo. Rarissimo insieme.

        Gottfried August Bürger's Ehestands-Geschichte. Titel, 258 S. Schlichte Kartonage d. Z. (Kanten berieben).

      Berlin und Leipzig, Ferdinand Schulz u. Comp. (d. i. Hamburg, Vollmer), 1812. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe. "Berüchtigtes Eroticum . Das Buch ist von Reinhard nach dem Concept und nach mündlichen Mitteilungen des enttäuschten Ehegatten herausgegeben und enthält nicht nur einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Lebensgeschichte Bürgers. Die dritte Ehe Bürgers bildet eine der fesselndsten, zugleich aber auch der erschütterndsten Episoden im Leben des Dichters. Nur dann, wenn man die frohen Hoffnungen in Betracht zieht, welche er an dieses letzte Liebesband knüpfte, und alle die sehnsüchtigen Erwartungen berücksichtigt, die durch die Schuld der leichtfertigen Gattin, deren Eheirrungen eine eingehende Schilderung erfahren, so jählings getäuscht wurden, ist man im Stande, sich eine zutreffende Vorstellung von dem zerrissenen Herzensleben des Dichters zu machen. Der Inhalt (dieses Buchs) ist zum Teil so intimer Natur, daß das Buch in manchen Bibliotheken nicht in der Abteilung für Literaturgeschichte, sondern im sogenannten 'Giftschrank' aufbewahrt wird" (Hayn). Überwiegend sind Briefe wiedergegeben, die Bürger an die Mutter seiner dritten Frau, des "Schwabenmädels" Elise Hahn, gerichtet hat. Darin wird nicht nur von den erotischen Aktivitäten berichtet, mit denen seine Frau schon bald nach der Hochzeit begann, sondern auch über ihre nachlässige Haushaltsführung usw. berichtet und so ein ziemlich eindrucksvolles Bild von Arbeit und Hauswesen eines Göttinger Professors ohne Gehalt am Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts gegeben. Am Anfang ist das Gedicht wiedergegeben, mit dem sich Elise Hahn dem unbekannten Bürger als Gattin angeboten hatte (und das sie später als 'bloßen Scherz' bezeichnete, den Bürger gar nicht lesen sollte) sowie das Antwortschreiben Bürgers. – Etwas gebräunt und stockfleckig.

        Apologia da Agoa de Inglaterra da Real Fabrica de José Joaquim de Castro, em obsequio da verdade .

      [Printed wrapper] London, Impresso por W. Lewis, 1812. - 4°, mid-twentieth-century navy half morocco over marbled boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, gilt letter, original printed upper wrapper bound in (mounted). Minor stains. In very good condition. 25 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST EDITION; another (a reprint?) appeared in 1931. This bit of propaganda by a native of Pernambuco gives a fascinating history of the manufacture and distribution of Agoa de Inglaterra. Originally imported from England - hence the name - this patent medicine was composed primarily of powdered cinchona bark dissolved in wine. Since quinine, the active ingredient of cinchona, was not isolated until 1820, Agoa de Inglaterra was widely popular as a remedy for the malaria that was endemic to Portugal.Present here (missing in most copies) is the front wrapper, which gives the printer and place of printing, not mentioned on the title-page or elsewhere in the book.*** Blake III, 475.

        HISTORY OF ENGLAND, From the Earliest Times to the Death of George the Second... With a Continuation to the Treaty of Amiens by Charles Coote

      London: For F. C. and J. Rivington; et al, 1812. 4 volumes. A very early edition of Goldsmith's history, corrected, and only the second edition to include Coote's continuation up to 1802. Tall 8vos, in handsome contemporary mottled calf, the boards with gilt chain framework, the spines with elegant central gilt devices in compartments between extensively decorated flat bands, two compartments with contrasting red and black morocco labels gilt lettered and tooled, board edges hatched in blind, page edges speckled. viii, 422; 447; 431; 567 pp. A beautiful, gentlemanly and pristine set, the text appearing essentially as mint, very fresh and crisp, the bindings strong and sturdy and handsome. A VERY HANDSOME SET IN FULL CONTEMPORARY STATE OF GOLDSMITH'S IMPORTANT POLITICAL HISTORY OF ENGLAND. Though best remembered now for his novels, Goldsmith's "History" was a staple of 19th century upper education, thus is rarely found in such fine condition. It is recognized for its balanced and unbiased delivery, its largest criticisms were for being too concise. Goldsmith's own work begins with the pre-Roman Britons and ends with George II. Coote's very excellent continuation provides us with an entire volume on the age of George III, whose Reign was longer than any other British monarch before him. Events in this extraordinary period of time included the Seven Years War, the American Revolution, the French Revolution and the early Napoleonic years.

Pour la première de ces thèses, Gaspard annote très copieusement et développe de nombreux passages, ainsi il enrichit son texte originel par des dizaines de feuillets manuscrits interfoliés. Mais surtout, Gaspard nous apprend dans ce même recueil, par un avertissement manuscrit et des lettres, faisant foi de son affirmation, que la thèse de Jean-Baptiste Clabaud avait, en réalité, été écrit par lui-même dans le but d'aider son ami Clabaud de Fretigny. Ce témoignage manuscrit nous permet donc de réattribuer la paternité d'un texte de médecine à son véritable auteur. Enfin, Gaspard a ajouté une troisième thèse, celle de Bouiller, car, nous apprend-il, il a "communiqué à l'auteur le 4e observation et parce "qu'il a" fait l'autopsie cadavérique de son malheureux frère, sujet de la 1ere observation"?

        Tales of Fashionable Life

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1812. Complete set of Anglo-Irish educator and novelist Maria Edgeworth's Tales of Fashionable Life: the second edition of Volumes I-III, and the first edition of Volumes IV-VI. Known as "the Great Maria," Edgeworth was widely acclaimed in her day: her emphasis on practical, hands-on education for children was influential on both sides of the Atlantic, and bestsellers like Castle Rackrent and Belinda inspired a generation of English novelists. Tales of Fashionable Life includes a series of short works, most notably The Absentee, which traces the exploitation of the Irish land and people at the hands of absentee landowners: "a great part of your timber, the growth of a century -- swallowed in the entertainments of one winter in London!" Informed by Edgeworth's firsthand knowledge of Anglo-Irish manners and politics, The Absentee's regional realism impressed writers as diverse as Walter Scott, Ivan Turgenev, and John Ruskin. This set was part of the library at Ashley Combe in Somerset, built in 1799 and improved in 1835 for the benefit of Ada Byron, daughter of poet Lord Byron and young bride of Ashley Combe's owner, William King, later the First Earl of Lovelace. A gifted polymath, Ada Lovelace would work with mathematician Charles Babbage on his Difference Engine and Analytical Engine, and her notes on the latter, which contain an algorithm for generating Bernoulli numbers, are often cited as the first computer program. In 1886, decades after Ada's death, the Earl purchased the Ben Damph Forest in Scotland, and built Ben Damph House, where these books eventually settled. A near-fine set of literary classics, with a connection to two pioneering nineteenth-century Englishwomen. Six twelvemo volumes, contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled paper boards, spines ruled and numbered in gilt, red morocco spine labels lettered in gilt and tooled with a floral gilt border. All half-titles present. Contemporary stamp of Ashley Combe to front pastedowns, later stamp of Ben Damph Forest Library to front free endpapers. Shelfwear to paper boards and corners.

Lobservateur politique, philosophe et économiste pourra y puiser aussi des connaissances très variées sur lAdministration coloniale, sur les Progrès de la civilisation, sur lexploitation des richesses métalliques, sur les murs et le triste sort des Tribus indiennes. » Après un bref récit de son voyage de Buenos Aires à Lima, lauteur donne un tableau des mines de la Plata, de Potosi, de Guancavelica (vif-argent), Pasco et Jauricocha, ainsi que le produit de lor et de largent des mines de lAmérique. LAppendice se compose dobservations sur la géographie et les systèmes politiques et religieux de la Plata, Buenos Aires, du Chili, du Pérou et du Paraguay. Les observations sur le commerce touchent essentiellement à limportation des différents textiles, métaux, et quincaillerie.

L'original allemand a été imprimé à Dresde en 1798. Les deux traductions renferment, de plus que l'original, des renseignements sur les pays décrits par ce voyageur, tirés principalement d'Alcedo et de Ulloa. » (Leclerc).
