        Pride and Prejudice

      1813. first edition. Jane Austen's Rarest Novel In Contemporary Calf With All Half Titles Present[AUSTEN, Jane]. Pride and Prejudice: A Novel. In Three Volumes. By the Author of Sense and Sensibility. London: Printed for T. Egerton, Military Library, Whitehall, 1813. First edition, following all points in Gilson and Keynes, and complete with all half titles present. Three twelvemo volumes (6 5/8 x 3 7/8 in; 168 x 97 mm). [iv], 307, [1, blank]; [iv], 239, [1, blank]; [iv, [323, [1, blank] pp.Contemporary speckled calf, blind-tooled board edges, edges sprinkled red, original light brown endpapers. Expertly rebacked with the original spines laid down. Later green morocco gilt lettering labels on spines. Gilt stamped "Charleton" to upper boards of each volume. From the library of German artist and music historian Frida Best (1876-1964), with her bookplate to each volume. Edges to a few leaves professionally and near invisibly repaired. Occasional light foxing. An excellent and complete copy in its original and contemporary binding. Housed in a modern half red morocco clamshell case with three individual spines decoratively lettered and tooled in gilt.Regency binders routinely removed the half titles; copies with all half titles present are rare: Sadleir, Keynes, and Chapman's copies lacked them, as do the copies at the Bodleian and Cambridge University libraries. "The first draft of PP, under the title of First Impressions… (printed as False Impressions by Lord Braybourne)…was written between October 1796 and August 1797" (Gilson p. 23). Austen made significant revisions to the manuscript for First Impressions between 1811 and 1812. She later renamed the story Pride and Prejudice. In renaming the the novel, Austen probably had in mind the "sufferings and oppositions" summarized in the final chapter of Fanny Burney's Cecilia, called "Pride and Prejudice", where the phrase appears three times in block capitals. It is possible that the novel's original title was altered to avoid confusion with other works. In the years between the completion of First Impressions and its revision into Pride and Prejudice, two other works had been published under that name: a novel by Margaret Holford and a comedy by Horace Smith."It was not fully revised until 1812, and the author records on January 29, 1813, that she has successfully 'lop't and crop't' the book" (Keynes). Both Gilson and Keynes suggest that only 1500 copies of the first edition were printed. The book was published at 18s in three volumes on January 28th, 1813.Jane Austen is one of the few authors whose entire oeuvre has attained classic status, each of her six novels considered to be masterpieces, ironic social satires streaked with proto-Feminism that have only increased in popularity since their publication.Of Austen, Virginia Woolf said, "a mistress of much deeper emotion than appears upon the surface...[possessing an] impeccable sense of human values" (in The Common Reader, Hogarth Press, pp. 102, 104).Austen sold the copyright to Egerton for £110, not anticipating that it would become an instant hit, (if not a fully critical success) the first edition selling out very rapidly with a second edition issued in the same year.Though we cannot be certain, we strongly suspect that the ownership stamp "Charleton" is that of Charleton House, Montrose, the home of feminist writer and philanthropist Susan Carnegie; a copy of Warnery's Remarks on Cavalry with this ownership mark sold at Bonham's in 2003.To date over 20 million copies of Pride and Prejudice have been sold worldwide…Gilson A3. Keynes 3. Sadleir 62b.

        Wissenschaft der Logik. Erster Band. Die objective Logik. Zweytes Buch: Die Lehre vom Wesen.

      Johann Leonhard Schrag, Nürnberg/Nuremberg 1813. 8vo. VI+282 pages. Contemporary marbled half-calf binding with gilt decorations to spine and orange-coloured title panel. Old name on front endpaper. In fine condition.. The first edition of the second part of Hegel's "Objective Logic".** Possibly the most difficult of Hegel's works to read and understand, 'Die Lehre vom Wesen' (The Doctrine of Essence), is the second section of the first part of the greater work 'Science of Logik' (Wissenschaft der Logik) consisting of two parts - 'The Objective Logic' and 'The Subjective Logic', which he published in 1812, 1813 and 1816. Hegel considered 'Wissenschaft der Logik' to be his major contribution to western philosophy and kept revising the work until his death in 1831. This part deals with the concept of essence, as developed by the ancient Greek philosophers: What is the concept of, for instance, a book - the book as such. How does the mind (spirit) attain such a concept? And how does it relate to the acquiring of knowledge? Hegel's works were enormously influential, and especially his ardent reader Karl Marx changed the course of world history

Letter with good geological content from Scottish mathematician and antiquary W. A. Cadell, discussing the recent work of French mineralogist Ren?ust Hauy (1743-1822), famous for "Hauy's law" stating that every crystal of precise chemical structure and purity has a specific and characteristic shape: "I send you Lucas's work it may be interesting to your mineralogical acquaintances as it contains the alterations which M. Hauy has made in his method since the publication of his work. . . . "Some analysis of fer spath[…] [iron spar?] have shewn that it often contains no lime this contradicts the classification which Mr. Hauy has given of that substance for he places it under the head of carbonate of lime. . . ."
