        [K 384]. Die Entführung aus dem Serail Oper in drey Ackten... L'enlevement du Serail. [Full score]

(title, verso blank), [1]-[2] (blank), 3-108., 2ff. (blank), 109-272, 2ff. (blank), [273]-350, 1f. (blank). Engraved. With text in German and French. Small sewing hole to upper blank inner margin. Previous owner's name and small handstamp to foot of title. A very good, well-margined copy, printed on high quality paper with strong impression. . First Edition. Rare. Hirsch II, 639. Sonneck Orchestral Music p. 117. RISM M4246, MM4246 (a total of 3 copies in the U.S.). Köchel 8 p. 384. Haberkamp I p. 180. Hoboken 11, 141. First performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on July 16th 1782, with a libretto by Johann Gottlieb Stephanie the Younger after Christoph Friedrich Bretzner. "The most important composition of this period, [1780-1783] however, was Die Entführung aus dem Serail, the libretto of which was given to Mozart at the end of July 1781. Originally planned for September, the première was postponed until the following summer (Mozart had completed the first act in August 1781). The opera was a great success: Gluck requested an extra performance, Schikaneder's troupe mounted an independent production in September 1784 (although the aria ‘Martern aller Arten’ was replaced because the orchestra was incapable of performing the obbligato solos), and productions were soon mounted in cities throughout German-speaking Europe. The earliest lengthy obituary of Mozart, in the Musikalische Korrespondenz der Teutschen Filarmonischen Gesellschaft of 4 January 1792, described the work as ‘the pedestal upon which his fame was erected’." Cliff Eisen et al in Grove online"The composition of this opera coincided with Mozart's marriage to Constanze Weber and his permanent settling in Vienna as a freelance composer and performer. Despite the intrigues and complications which plagued the premiere, it proved to be Mozart's most popular opera in his lifetime, partly due to the fashion for plays and operas on oriental subjects. But it was of this piece that the Emperor, according to Niemetschek (1798), made his famous comment: 'Too beautiful for our ears, my dear Mozart, and vastly too many notes', to which Mozart replied 'Just as many as are necessary, your Majesty'." Robbins Landon: The Mozart Compendium, p. 249.

        Théorie des fonctions analytiques, contenant les Principes du Calcul différentiel, dégagés de toute considération d'infiniment petits, dìévanouissans, de limites et de fluxions, et réduits à l'analyse algébrique des quantités finies. Nouvelle édition. V.e Courcier,, Paris, 1813 - In-4° (265x206mm), pp. XI, (1) di errata, 383, legatura coeva m. pelle marmorizzata. Titolo in oro su tassello rosso al dorso. Esemplare assai bello, salvo qualche lieve fioritura. Seconda edizione, riveduta e aumentata, del grande trattato di Lagrange sulle funzioni analitiche, stampato per la prima volta nel 1797 e destinato ad avere larghissima influenza in tutta la ricerca matematica ottocentesca e a condizionare in profondo le analisi di matematici come Cauchy, Jacobi, Weierstrass. "Cette seconde edition a plusieurs avantages sur la premiere. Elle est plus correcte ; on a mis plus d"ordre dans les matieres. Enfin on y a fait differentes additions dont les principales se trouvent dans le chapitre XIV de la seconde partie et dans le chapitre V de la troisieme". (Avertissement). "In this book, Lagrange intended to show that power series expansions are sufficient to provide differential calculus with a solid foundation. Today mathematicians are partially returning to this conception in treating the formal calculus of series. As early as 1812, however J.M.H. Wronski objected to Lagrange's claims. The subsequent opposition of Cauchy was more effective. Nevertheless, Lagrange's point of view could not be totally neglected. Completed by convergence considerations, it dominated the study of the functions of a complex variable throughout the nineteenth century". (DSB, VII, p. 570) Il Lagrange (Torino, 1736-Parigi, 1813), fra i matematici più insigni del suo tempo, Professore prima alla Scuola d'Artiglieria di Torino, poi, dal 1766, Direttore dell'Accademia delle Scienze di Berlino. In seguito insegnò a Parigi, alla Sorbona e alla Scuola Politecnica e fu membro dell'Institut de France e del Bureau des Longitudes, venendo anche insignito della Légion d'Honneur.

        Réflexions et observations anatomico-chirurgicales sur l'anévrisme. Traduites de l'italien par J. Delpech.

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1809-1813. - Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1809-1813 ; 1 vol. de texte in-8 et 1 atlas in-folio. Texte : VI, 470, (4) pp. et iij, 40 pp. (Additions au traité de l'anévrysme). Atlas : (2), 24 pp., 18 planches. Volume de texte en demi-basane verte du temps, dos lisse orné, dos légèrement insolé, notes manuscrites de l'époque (à l'encre) sur la page de faux-titre et au verso de la page de titre des "Additions au traité ." (encre ayant traversé le papier par endroits), sinon très bon état. Atlas en toile grise moderne, couverture bleue d'origine conservée (avec étiquette de titre au centre du plat supérieur), bel exemplaire non rogné. Première édition de la traduction française, augmentée d'un supplément. Antonio Scarpa (1752-1832), élève de Morgagni et titulaire de la chaire d'anatomie et de chirurgie de Pavie, rapporte ici les résultats de ses importantes recherches sur les anévrysmes. Il démontre, pour la première fois, que l'anévrysme n'est pas une simple dilatation d'une artère, mais qu'il est le résultat de modifications des tuniques vasculaires. Il est le premier à décrire de façon détaillée, avec dessins à l'appui, les lésions athéromateuses et évoque "une origine interne à évolution lente". Scarpa décrit ses procédés opératoires, après avoir rappelé ceux de ses prédécesseurs. Notre exemplaire renferme bien in fine, avec une page de titre propre, les "Additions au traité de l¿anévrysme . traduit par C.P. Ollivier" (Paris, Béchet jeune, 1822, 40 pp.). Le volume de texte et latlas paru quatre années plus tard sont devenus très rares, surtout réunis. Waller (8545) possédait l'atlas seul, tandis que Bedford (703) ne possédait que le volume de texte. L'atlas, dont il n'existe pas d'édition en langue anglaise, comporte de magnifiques planches gravées par Adam. Ces 18 planches sont numérotées de I à X (les planches 1, 3, 4, 5 et 7 sont en double état et il existe des planches 8 bis, 8 ter et 9 bis). cf. pour l'édition originale en italien : Garrison & Morton, 2975 : "Scarpa distinguished true from false aneurysms. He introduced the concept of arteriosclerosis." ; Heirs of Hippocrates 1109 : " plates exquisitely executed" ; Leibowitz, History of coronary heart disease, 106-109 : "We feel that it is the first anatomo-pathological description of arterial wall degeneration presented in full detail and well-illustrated . detailed and almost modern approach to the problem of areteriosclerosis .Scarpa's book is basically a surgical treatise and deals with ligature of the principal arteries of the extremities. Only one chapter is relevant to the theory of arteriosclerosis" ; Loria, Antonio Scarpa, 62 : "Scarpa's large and excellent monograph on aneurisms, written on the detailed and comparative studies of the normal and pathologic tissues involved, established for the first time that an aneurism is not a simple dilatation of an artery, but actually the result of profound and significant changes in the arterial vascular tunics. In order to provide a safe pattern for operative procedures on the large arteries he showed them with well-defined illustrations on his topographical sketches. These magnificent anatomical drawings are still considered tremendously important in the study of this well-determined subject today." ; Acierno, The history of cardiology, p. 101.

        PRIDE AND PREJUDICE A Novel. In Three Volumes. By the Author of "Sense and Sensibility"

      Printed for T. Egerton 1813 - First edition. Three volumes, bound in contemporary brown speckled calf. Green morocco title labels and gilt rules to the spine. "Charleton" embossed in gilt to upper board of each volume. Half titles present in each volume. A tall copy with each volume neatly rebacked, retaining most of the original spines with repairs to the joints and corners. Internally clean with occasional minor marks or foxing and a couple of marginal closed tears to leaves in volume III. Bookplate to the verso of each front endpaper. A very good example of of Austen's most popular novel, now rarely encountered in a contemporary binding. The author's second and most famous novel, which has become one of the most prominent literary works to come from the nineteenth century. The first draft of the novel was written under the working title of 'First Impressions' in 1796. In 1797 Jane Austen's father wrote to the publisher Cadell to ask if he would publish the novel. The offer was rejected by return of post. In 1800 The Minerva Press published a novel by Margaret Holford entitled First Impressions, which probably led to Austen changing the title of the work. In the following years, Pride and Prejudice was heavily rewritten and the copyright eventually sold to Egerton in 1812. There is no record of the number of copies of the first edition, but Keynes suggests 1500 as the probable print run. The book was well received and the first edition sold out within the year and one contemporary reader wrote, "I have finished the Novel called Pride and Prejudice, which I think is a very superior work. I really think it is the most probable fiction I have ever read." The association with Susan Carnegie is intriguing. Born in Edinburgh, she lived at Charleton from her marriage to George Carnegie in 1769 until her death in 1821. She was one of the most prominent early femists who ". learned to challenge the idea that women were intellectually less able than men, choosing instead to explain discrepancies in terms of women's educational opportunities and their general treatment in a patriarchal society. Certainly in her correspondence Susan was fearless in drawing attention to a lack of respect or of rudeness on the part of male writers." (Oxford DNB) As a rule Regency binders removed the half titles so copies in contemporary bindings retaining them are rare; the copies in such prominent collections as Sir Geoffrey Keynes's and R.W.Chapman's all had no half titles, nor do the Bodleian or Cambridge University library copies.

      Sackets Harbor, N.Y. May 29, 1813. - 1pp. Folio. Old fold lines. Some separation at folds; one tear closed with archival tape. Lightly soiled. Docketed on verso. Good. An eyewitness account of the second battle of Sackets Harbor, on the shores of Lake Ontario, written by the commander of the American forces there, Gen. Jacob Brown, to his friend Joshua Hatheway, Quartermaster General and formerly the commander of the defenses at Sackets Harbor. The town, situated near the entrance to the St. Lawrence River at the far eastern end of Lake Ontario and opposite the Canadian town of Kingston, was a vital defensive point for the Americans, challenging British control of the St. Lawrence and the lake, and preventing a British thrust into New York State. If either side could control both sides of the entrance to the St. Lawrence, they could control the Upper Great Lakes. Taking advantage of the American action against York, which drew troops away to the western end of the Lake, the British decided to strike. On the 28th of May, 1813, the British Great Lakes squadron under the command of James Yeo appeared off Sackets Harbor, carrying troops under the command of the Governor-General, Lieut. General George Prevost. Having been forewarned by several men who escaped the Battle of Henderson Bay the previous day, the Americans had some time to reinforce their defenses before the British could attack. The British landed on the 28th, but launched their main attack the next morning. They easily routed the American militia, but the regulars under Brown were able to fight off repeated attacks on their fortifications. Prevost, fearing the arrival of more American troops, ordered a retreat which nearly became a rout. Brown was the hero of the day, and was later rewarded with a commission as brigadier general. He must have immediately written this letter describing the action: "Dr. Sir, I received an order some days since from Genl Dearborn to take comm. at this Post. Comd. Chauncey is up the lake. We were this morning attacked as day dawned by Sir George Prevost in person who made good his landing with at least a thousand picked men. Sir James Yeo commanded the fleet after loosing some distinguished officers and of course some gallant men. Our loss is very severe as to the quality of those who have fallen. The enemy left many of their wounded on the Field - but I have no doubt carried off many more. We shall probably be again attacked as Sir George must feel very sore. All I can say is, whatever may be the result we will not be disgraced." A superb battlefield letter reporting on one of the most significant military actions of the War of 1812.

        Historia del Famoso Predicador Fray Gerundio de Campazas por el Padra Isla

      Madrid - Fuentenebro 1813 - An early nineteenth century Spanish edition of Jose Francisco's important satirical novel, originally banned by the Inquisition, in a fine binding. Direct from thelibrary at Newton Hall, Northumberland. With the armorial bookplates in Volumes I - III of author Samuel Edward Widdrington. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and decoration. Complete in Four Volumes. Written in the original Spanish. Jose Francisco de Isla de la Torre y Rojo, 1703 - 1781, was a Spanish novelist and Jesuit. The first volume of his important work, Historia del Famoso Predicador Fray Gerundio de Campazas, was banned within a month of publication in 1758by the Inquisition; the second part was published in 1768 and de Isla was exiled. The novel is a blend of two elements, narrative satire and the burlesque. This work is often seen as a insight into the life and customs of particular Spanish cities, as the descriptions and details given by de Isla are considered authentic. Samuel Edward Widdrington (formerly Cook), 1787 - 1856, was an English writer on Spain. Having served in the Royal Navy he lived for some years in Spain. He served as High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1854. He was a fellow of the Royal Society, and the Royal Geographical Society. He inherited the estates of Newton Hall, Northumberland, and the Widdrington name. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is only very mild wear to the extremities, with just very mild rubbing, prominent to the spine. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright. Overall the condition is very good indeed.

        Naval Poems. Pleasures of the Naval Life, and the Battle of Trafalgar.

      London: by T. C. Hansard for C. Cradock and W.Joy, and J. Hatchard, 1813 - Quarto (350 × 260 mm). Original drab boards, paper label to the spine. Modern bookplate to the front free endpaper, which has stained through to the verso slightly, joints a little cracked, spine chipping, boards a touch rubbed, but an excellently preserved, uncut copy. First edition. Downey explains that he has written "The Pleasures of Naval Life" as a corrective to the "tone of querulous despondence" that underlies so much naval literature; "The Naval Life is NOT a series of privations, distresses, and affliction. It presents a variety of situations, the delights of which are heightened by contrast." The poem takes the form of an account of a voyage from Falmouth to India, returning to London via St. Helena. In the second part he essays a blow-by-blow account of Nelson's climactic victory in rhyming couplets. The impressive four-page subscribers list includes Dr. William Beatty, who attended the dying Nelson on board Victory, Admirals Northesk and Durham, Vice Admiral Harvey and Captains Bayntun and Pellew, all of whom served in the battle, together with Cochrane, Admiral Duckworth, Admiral Keith, and John Wilson Croker, secretary to the Board of Admiralty, to whom the book is dedicated. An extremely handsome copy of an uncommon title, four copies only on COPAC, copy in NMM. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Queen Mab, A Philosophical Poem, with Notes …]

      [London: by P. B. Shelley (actually by an unknown printer for Thomas Hookham), , 1813]. Octavo (179 × 112 mm.), pp. 240, with title-page and dedication leaf removed and imprint torn from foot of last leaf Q8 by Shelley, as issued; the dedication leaf since supplied from the 1821 Clark reprint, the last leaf rather crudely trimmed, margins restored, with one line of Greek text at foot of recto supplied in manuscript. Contemporary half calf, neatly restored, with green morocco spine label. Book label of Ian Jack (1923–2008), Emeritus Professor of English at Cambridge University. A few trivial marks internally, early ink notes about the history of the book to front and rear free endpapers, a good copy of a rare book. First edition, one of only approximately 70 copies of the first issue, the so-called "mutilated" state of the text. Queen Mab was Shelley's first important poetic work, preceded only by two verse pamphlets. In this first effort to build a poetic myth from his repudiation of the political, moral, and religious conventions of his era, Shelley provides a series of startling notes to his exotic verses, including a straight reprint of his explosive 1811 pamphlet, The Necessity of Atheism, for which he had been expelled from Oxford, and others espousing such subversive causes as free love, vegetarianism, and republicanism. Given the nature of its contents, it was inevitable that Queen Mab should be a clandestine publication. Hookham made the arrangements to have 250 copies printed on Shelley's behalf, but declined putting his own name to it. By law a printer's name and address had to be given, so Shelley shouldered this risk himself. To avoid inevitable prosecution, however, he deliberately "mutilated" every copy he personally distributed by cutting out the title-page and final imprint containing these incriminating details. That this was always the intention is shown by the fact that the printing on the recto of the last leaf stops one line shorter than the rest of the book, so that no vital matter was lost when Shelley cut away his name on the verso. With the title cut away, the first thing the reader saw was the poetic dedication to Harriet, his ill-fated first wife. Copies from which this leaf is also removed were therefore likely distributed by Shelley after the summer of 1814, when he eloped with Mary Godwin. From the evidence of the remainder of 180 unmutilated copies offered for sale by Richard Carlile in 1822, it can be inferred that Shelley distributed no more than 70 copies of the poem in this way. Although booksellers and auctioneers have regularly asserted the contrary, the "mutilated" state is much the rarer of the two, as an examination of library holdings and auction records quickly bears out, and the state in which Shelley personally issued it. It is the primary issue.

        Sense and Sensibility. A Novel.

      London: Printed for the Author by C Roworth and Published by T Egerton: Second edition 1813 - 3 volumes, 12mo., ([ii], 306pp.) + ([ii], 278pp.) + ([ii], 294pp.), lacking half-titles, some light occasional scattered spotting, bound in very good quality twentieth century white pigskin leather bindings with contrasting fine dark green morocco leather title labels to spines which are also gilt ruled in compartments. A lovely uncomplicated set in a fine binding all contained in purpose-made slipcase. (Gilson, A2). In 1811, Thomas Egerton of the Military Library publishing house in London accepted the manuscript for publication, in three volumes. Austen paid for the book to be published and paid the publisher a commission on sales. The cost of publication was more than a third of Austen's annual household income of £460. She made a profit of £140 on the first edition, which sold all 750 printed copies by July 1813. A second edition was advertised in October 1813. The story revolves around Elinor and Marianne, two daughters of Mr. Dashwood by his second wife. They have a younger sister, Margaret, and an older half-brother named John. When their father dies, the family estate passes to John, and the Dashwood women are left in reduced circumstances. The novel follows the Dashwood sisters to their new home, a cottage on a distant relative's property, where they experience both romance and heartbreak. The contrast between the sisters' characters is eventually resolved as they each find love and lasting happiness. Through the events in the novel, Elinor and Marianne find a balance between sense (or pure logic) and sensibility (or pure emotion) in life and love. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

On the 28th of April in the same year, I first trod the soil of Nova Scotia, at 2 o'clock at night." [D.

        Captain Inglefield's Narrative of the Loss of the Centaur, in 1782 : being a literal extract of his letter to the Admiralty, written from Fayal in 1782. Also, a copy of the sentence of the Court Martial held upon the officers of the Centaur.

      Printed by P. Norbury., Brentford. 1813 - SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY. slim 8vo. [4] 26pp. disbound with marbled covers. inner margin stain otherwise excellent. John Nicholson Inglefield (1748 - 1828) was an officer in the British Royal Navy. According to Captain Inglefield himself his paternal family was of Lancashire origin and distantly connected to that of the Englefields. Under the patronage of his maternal uncle, Thomas Slade, Inglefield joined the navy as a boy of 11 in 1759. In April 1766 he was rated Able Seaman aboard the Launceston: in May 1768 he was made lieutenant and moved into HMS Romney under the command of Sir Samuel Hood. This connection was to prove the most significant of Inglefield's career. Although Inglefield returned to the Launceston in October, by July 1769 he was back with Hood aboard the Romney and from that time forward his career was closely associated with his friend's. With him Inglefield left the Romney in December 1770, served in HMS Marlborough and HMS Courageux, and in 1778 in HMS Robust with Hood's brother Alexander. Aboard the Robust he was present at the First Battle of Ushant on 27 July. The Battle of the Saintes, 12 April 1782: surrender of the Ville de Paris by Thomas Whitcombe, painted 1783, shows Hood's Barfleur, centre, attacking the French flagship Ville de Paris, right, at the Battle of the SaintesIn June 1779 Inglefield was promoted to command of the brig-sloop HMS Lively and in the October of the following year made Captain and posted to HMS Barfleur (90 guns), in which his patron, Sir Samuel Hood, hoisted his flag. As Captain of the flagship Inglefield sailed to the West Indies and took part in the skirmish with the French fleet off Martinique in 1781. In August of the same year Hood transferred him to HMS Centaur (74 guns), which Inglefield commanded in three actions against the French, culminating on 12 April 1782 at the Battle of the Saintes. However aboard the Centaur that Inglefield suffered the most harrowing episode of his career when, sailing for England with the convoy under Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Graves, his ship along with the others was struck by a hurricane. The Centaur, an ageing ship, was severely damaged. Thrown upon her beam ends, dismasted in order to right herself and with her rudder gone, she eventually foundered despite the most strenuous efforts of Inglefield and the crew over several days. Inglefield and eleven others escaped aboard the pinnace, though otherwise the ship's complement of some six hundred men was lost. Subsisting on a few bottles of French cordials, some spoilt bread, ship's biscuit and rainwater wrung out into a bailing cup, the survivors successfully navigated to Faial Island in the Azores after sixteen days of the most terrible privation that saw one of them, Thomas Matthews, die the day before they reached land. On returning to England and the court martial usual in such cases, the survivors were acquitted. Inglefield's spare and unsensational description of this disaster, Captain Inglefield's narrative concerning the loss of the 'Centaur' was published shortly afterwards. A dramatic painting of the incident in which those on the pinnace, thrusting off from the foundering Centaur, pulled aboard a fifteen-year-old midshipman who had thrown himself from the wreck, was later made into a popular print. For three years Inglefield was given a home posting aboard the guardship HMS Scipio in the Medway. In 1786 however he and his wife were publicly involved in a marital dispute which led to a permanent breach. After accusing his wife of making advances towards a manservant, Inglefield demanded a separation. Denying the accusation, Mrs Inglefield sued him for desertion. Although she won her case in court, the marriage was irretrievably damaged and they appear never to have cohabited again. Rare, Author Signed Presentation Copy. Brentford 1813.
