        Viaggi di Ali Bey El - Abbassi in Africa ed in Asia dall'anno 1803 a tutto il 1807 tradotti dal dottore Stefano Ticozzi...

      Sonzogno, 1816 - 17. Quattro volumi di cm. 18, pp. xvi, 260 (2); 282; 293 (3); 211 (3). Con 16 belle tavole f.t. stampate su carta forte e protette da velina, incise da Dall'Acqua e (la maggior parte delle quali) colorate da Lazaretti all'acquerello, da invenzione dell'autore stesso. Graziosa brossura editoriale decorata ed illustrata. Esemplare genuino e marginoso, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Entro custodia protettiva in cartonato rigido marmorizzato. Prima edizione italiana, rara, contemporanea all'edizione originale in lingua francese e alle perfettamente coeve traduzioni in tedesco ed in inglese, di questo straordinario resoconto di viaggi in Africa del Nord e in Medio Oriente del Badia y Leiblich (Barcellona, 1766 - Damasco, 1818), avventuriero spagnolo che si spacciò per un nobile mamelucco siriano sotto il nome di "Ali Bey al - Abbasi", svolgendo forse le funzioni di agente per il governo spagnolo. Nel 1803 egli partì per Tangeri, percorrendo tutto il Nord Africa (ad Alessandria d'Egitto egli si imbatte fra l'altro in Chateaubriand) e di lì proseguendo alla volta di Cipro, Gerusalemme, Damasco, Costantinopoli e la Mecca, che pote visitare grazie alla sua fittizia identità araba; egli fu infatti il primo cristiano a descrivere in dettaglio la Mecca e la Moschea di Omar a Gerusalemme, così come alcuni aspetti dell'Islam allora malnoti in Occidente. L'opera presenta una grande abbondanza di informazioni sulla religione islamica, sulla geografia, le piante e gli animali, i pesi e le misure, le monete e le consuetudini commerciali, etc. Il Badia y Leiblich morì improvvisamente a Damasco nel corso di un secondo viaggio in Medio Oriente, compiuto sempre sotto mentite spoglie. L'opera apparve in Italia all'interno della Raccolta di viaggi dopo quelli di Cook eseguiti tanto per mare quanto per terra, e non pubblicati finora in lingua italiana (tomi XXIX - XXXII).

        Ekonomisk botanik för landtbruk, trädgårder och apotek. 2 issues (all that appeared).

      Stockholm, 1816. 8vo. Two issues, both in the original printed wrappers, no. 1 uncut. Both in excellent, near mint condition. (30) pp. + 12 engraved, handcoloured plates. A very fine and clean set. A splendid and very special copy of the first edition of this exquisite collection of plates with accompanying text, intended to be a supplement to Palmstruch's Swedish Botany.Originally intended as a grand-scale production spanning 5 to 6 volumes with 12 issues in each volume, the two present issues were, however, all that appeared. No. 2 issue in the present set is one of only very few copies known of the intended luxury-version. After the appearance of the first volume, Billberg wanted to make a small part of the issue of the remaining numbers into a luxury-edition that was to be printed on much heavier paper and in which the plates - that in the standard issue were only partly coloured - were to be coloured in full. Our copy of this second issue is one of these extremey rare copies, magnificently coloured in full, and printed on very heavy paper.The plates are engraved by Ruckman, after Palmstruch.

        Autogr. musical manuscript (beginning of "Erinnerungen", D. 424, and "Andenken", D. 423), identified in the margin by Albert Stadler: "Franz Schubert Autograf Mai [1]816".

      [Vienna], May 1816. - 2 pp. (303 x 146 and 302 x 114 mm). Framed and glazed. Two autograph Schubert trios after poems by Friedrich Matthisson, penned as a 19-year-old during a visit to his friends Albert Stadler and Joseph von Spaun at the Imperial seminary, which the young composer had quit in 1813. Stadler recounts these get-togethers, frowned upon by the seminary's headmasters: "Spaun would provide him with music paper, and the creative pen did not rest [.] On Sundays we had to attend the afternoon church services in nearby University Street, which always lasted the better part of an hour. Whenever Schubert visited, we would lock him in our study chamber for this period, hand him a few scraps of music paper and any old volume of poems that presented itself, that he might while away the time. Upon our return from mass we would usually find something finished, which he generously left me. I still own several such small compositions in their original autographs: [.] for three voices, [.] 'Am Seegestad' in lauen Vollmondnächten' [and] 'Ich denke dein, wenn durch den Hain' [.]" (Deutsch, Drei neue Matthison-Terzette, p. 56). Schubert had composed both melodies for a single voice as early as 1814 (D. 98/99). Both sheets, numbered "I" and "II" in Roman numerals at upper left, probably once formed the lower and upper parts of larger folio sheets trimmed above and below the present music. An arrow pointing to the upper right, added by a slightly later hand, links the two leaves among which the song "Andenken" is split. Contents in detail: leaf 1) beginning of a string quartet by Albert Stadler (D. app. I, 4); verso "Erinnerungen" (D. 424); "Andenken" (D. 423) bars 1-6. Leaf 2) continuation: bar 7-end; a few stricken musical sketches in pencil; a few indistinct pencil notes and the word "Autographe" in Stadler's hand on verso. Provenance: in the collection of Auguste Loderer, Frankenburg (Upper Austria) in 1978. Deutsch 423-424 & appendix I, 4. First published: NGA 1974. Cf. O. E. Deutsch, Drei neue Matthisson-Terzette von Schubert, in: Festblätter für das 10. Dt. Sängerbundfest Wien 1928 (1927), p. 55-59. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        An Inquiry into the Merits of the Principal Naval Actions Between Great Britain and the United States

      Halifax, N.S: Anthony N. Holland, 1816. 6/25/16. vi, 102 pp. "Comprising an account of all British and American ships of war, reciprocally captured and destroyed since the 18th of June 1812." James was a proctor in the Vice-Admiralty court in Jamaica. At the beginning of the War of 1812 he was detained as a prisoner for several months before escaping to Halifax in 1813. He certainly had cause to dislike the Americans, and as Smith notes, all his historical works are violently pro-British. In this work, by narrating and analyzing each naval encounter of the war, he "showed that the American frigates were larger, stouter and more heavily armed and more strongly manned than the English which they had captured; that the statements officially published in the United States were grossly inaccurate; and that the victories of the Americans were to be attributed, not to superior seamanship nor to superior courage, but to superior numerical force."—DNB. James' work caused much controversy when it was published. The pamphlet, which is both an important War of 1812 item and an early Halifax imprint, is quite scarce, and is almost never found in original condition. Howes J-53. Smith II 1187. Very good condition in original printed wrappers.

Less than four months after the Treaty of Ghent was ratified, a Convention between the United States and Great Britain "to regulate the commerce and navigation . in such a manner as to render the same reciprocally beneficial and satisfactory" was signed at London on July 3, 1815. The Convention restored trade and access to each other's ports and equalized import and export duties. The Bill dated March 18, 1816 formalized the acceptance of the terms of the Convention by the British, and the ensuing the formal legal Act dated April 11, 1816, received royal assent shortly thereafter. Some two months later, the Act dated June 20, 1816 was amended to clarify the terms for American vessels clearing out of British ports in the East Indies. The Convention was made valid for four years from the date of signing. It was extended for a further 10 years by the Convention of October 20, 1818, and then extended indefinitely by the Convention of August 6, 1827. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A poetical descant on the primeval and present state of mankind; or, the pilgrim's muse.

      Winchester, VA: A. Foster, pr. 12mo (13 cm; 5.25"). 219, [1 (errata)] pp.. 1816 Somebody had to be North Carolina's first native born poet and the task/honor was Joseph Thomas's, and he did it with A Poetical Descant! It is scarce, having been printed in small format in a small town by a very small-time printer for a rather small audience. Thomas's other publications include a hymnal and short works of theology (totally fitting given that he was an itinerant preacher), and an autobiograpy. Recent quarter cloth with blue-green paper sides, in the style of early 19th-century American books. Ex–mercantile library with a few stamps, including on title–page. Two letters of title abraded and mostly invisible. A clean copy.

        Nouveau Recueil des Plans des Ports, et Rades de la Mer Mediterranée, dont la majeure partie publiés nouvellement par les meilleurs Auteurs. Genes, chez Yves Gravier Imprimeur Libraire, 1816

      Yves Gravier, 1816. in - 8 oblungo (mm.190x230), ff. (1) di frontespizio figurato inciso,179 tavole incise, (1) di tavola che illustra bandiere navali e mercantili, 1 pianta ripiegata della città di Odessa; 1 foglio sciolto su carta azzurra con un indice dei porti contenuti nella raccolta. Leg. coeva in piena pelle. La presente edizione, uniformemente legata, potrebbe essere una miscellanea di diverse edizioni del celebre portolano tascabile del Roux, a partire dal 1804 fino al 1849. Le prime 163 tavole numerate sono infatti certamente ad opera di Joseph Roux, di cui si sa che apparteneva a una famiglia di idrografi e conduceva una tipografia specializzata in Marsiglia. Nel 1764 Roux aveva pubblicato un album intitolato ''Recueil des principaux plans des ports et rades de la Mer Méditerranée..'', comprensivo di 121 tavole di rade e piani di porti. L'opera incontrò largo favore, e fu ristampata nel 1799 da Yves Gravier, che diede alle stampe anche le edizioni successive. L'album ebbe riedizioni sino al 1848. La presente edizione include carte, (dalla 164 alla 179) scritte in inglese, di Ayrouard (firmate quelle di Portofino, Savona e S. Fiorenzo; attribuibili di Portovenere, Porto Ercole, Porto Longone); di Rizzi Zannoni (firmate quelle di Salerno, Policastro, S. Eufemia; attribuibile quella di Messina); e una carta del Mar di Marmara di J. N. Bellin. Importante suite di piante incise di portolani del Mediterraneo.

        Nuovo esame delle sorgenti della privata e pubblica ricchezza. Tomo primo: Delle sorgenti della privata ricchezza. Tomo secondo: Delle sorgenti della pubblica ricchezza

      Per G. Vincenzi e comp, 1816 - 1817. 2 voll. in - 8° (217x131mm), pp. XVI, 455, (4) di note ed errata; 505, (2) di errata; brossura editoriale a stampa. Ex - libris. Freschissimo esemplare a fogli chiusi e in barbe. Prima edizione, estremamente rara, della maggiore opera dell'economista modenese. "Carlo Bosellini ha avuto nella vita il momento felice il quale basta a dare allo scrittore un posto segnalato nella storia della dottrina. Partito dalla contemplazione del contrasto fra l'umanità faticante e dolorante e quella che in riposo gode i frutti della fatica prima durata. dal contrasto ha logicamente concluso all'assurdo di tassare l'uomo nel primo momento, crescendone la fatica e il dolore, ed alla necessità di far lo stato partecipe dei frutti della fatica nella fase del godimento. Egli ha la consapevolezza della sua posizione singolare, la quale lo avvicina agli Hobbes ed ai Petty; e respinge la identificazione della sua teoria con quella delle imposte sui consumi" (Luigi Einaudi, La teoria dell'imposta in Tommaso Hobbes, sir W. Petty e Carlo Bosellini, Torino, 1933). "L'opera più importante di questo periodo e di tutta la produzione del Bosellini è il Nuovo esame delle sorgenti della privata e pubblica ricchezza, scritta intorno al 1810, ma pubblicata, in due volumi, soltanto nel 1816 - 17 a Modena, dopo la caduta del regime napoleonico che ne aveva vietato la stampa. Nell'opera, scritta sotto l'influsso delle dottrine economiche inglesi e francesi, soprattutto dello Smith e del Say, il B. sostiene che la monarchia costituzionale è la sola possibile garante dei due capisaldi politici sui quali poggiano i progressi dell'economia: libertà (di stampa, commercio, religione, ecc.) e proprietà privata. Queste sono, a loro volta, le due condizioni che assicurano la libera concorrenza e stimolano l'attività economica dei più industriosi; l'accumulazione del capitale è frutto di "previdenza", ottenuta con sacrificio e l'interesse sul capitale è remunerazione di questo sacrificio. Al problema dei tributi è dedicato l'intero secondo volume, in cui l'Einaudi (pp. 346 - 406) ha visto una notevole originalità di impostazione. Contro i fisiocratici, il B. sostiene l'ingiustizia dell'imposta diretta sulla proprietà fondiaria, sul capitale e sui salari: l'una viola la proprietà privata, l'altra colpisce l'industriosità e il lavoro. L'imposta indiretta è la sola che il B. ritiene utile e giusta, perché, secondo lui, l'imposta indiretta è un tributo volontario in quanto pesa su beni non di prima necessità; non viola la proprietà privata in quanto grava, non sul capitale, ma sull'uso di esso; è giusta in quanto si paga su un godimento, reale, come contropartita che il cittadino deve alla società in cambio dei beni che questa gli offre; è meno gravosa per i singoli e più redditizia per lo Stato; colpisce, non l'uomo che lavora e produce, ma l'uomo "in riposo" che consuma. Sul Messaggiere modenese del 19 luglio 1817 Melchiorre Gioia accusò il B. di plagio delle sue teorie esposte nel Nuovo prospetto delle scienze economiche, uscito nel 1815. Con una Lettera a Giuseppe Acerbi, in Biblioteca italiana, X (1818), pp. 141 - 144, il B. si disse disposto a provare, con atti rilasciati dalla magistratura sulla stampa, che il Nuovo esame era già stato scritto nel 1810. La polemica si protrasse fino al 1825 con particolare violenza: lo scritto più notevole con cui il B. intese confutare il Gioia fu pubblicato nel Giornale arcadico di scienze,lettere ed arti, XV (1822 - 23), 3, pp. 285 - 303" (Antonio Rotondò in Diz. Biografico degli Italiani, XIII, p. 252). L'opera è stata ristampata solo nel 1976 dalla Fondazione Einaudi a motivo della sua grande rarità. Einaudi, n. 634. DBI, cit. Palgrave, I, p. 169.

      1816 - Buenos Aires imprint on the state of the National Corsair Flotilla In folio. 1 ff. Unbound. Browned, left corner with a little loss of paper touching a very few letters, however readable. Exceedingly rare “newspaper” with news of Brown fleet´s action in the Pacific, followed by the “Estado de los Corsarios armados” [State of the Armed Corsairs] to defeat Buenos Aires. This particular part of the newspaper gives a detailed relation of the raids and attacks lead by the flotilla, the considerable booty “empezaron a descargar los buques que estaban listos para la peninsula con mucho dinero y otras especies de valor. La precipitacion fue tanta que los pesos fuertes se derramaban por el muelle” [they began to unload the ships that were ready to depart for the peninsula –Spain- with so much money and other species of value. The precipitation was such that the pesos Fuertes –local currency- were being spilled down the dock], and the ships, vessels and their captains, along with their armament. Not located bibliographically.

        The Most Ancient and Famous History of the Renowned Prince Arthur, King of Britaine,

      R. Wilks, London 1816 - 12mo. 3 volumes. xxiv [25]-326; xvi [17]-381; xvi [17]377pp. Engraved title pages in each volume. Engraved frontispiece of the Death of Sir Launcelot present in Volume 1, of the Parting of Tristan and Isolde in Volume 2, and of Prince Arthur Obtaining the Sword in Volume 3. The folding plate of the Round Table is also present in Volume 1.Publisher's original printed paper boards, basically a flimsy binding intended only to preserve the textblock until the set could be rebound in leather pursuant to the buyer's wishes. The boards are worn, rubbed and soiled; the upper board of Volume II has been supplied from another copy and remargined to fit, the paper spines are largely perished. All boards have been professionally reattached with archival tissue. The textblocks show the usual offsetting of the engraved titles and frontispieces to each other as well as some foxing, but are otherwise fairly nice. Housed in a custom made leather backed clamshell case, gilt spine title. There seem to have been two issues of this set, with one issue a little larger than the other, and with the borders round the text more intricate. This is the simpler state, with the borders a single chain design. The textblocks are untrimmed, The set measures approximately 3=1/8 by 5-3/4 inches. The Morte d'Arthur was first printed by Caxton in 1485 and was followed by editions in 1498, 1529, 1557 and 1634. Owing to the rise of the Commonwealth, stories of kings were generally suppressed; no further editions of the Morte d'Arthur were printed until 1816, which saw two editions of which this is one. Important edition, marking the start of modern interest in Arthuriana. By 1858, Thomas Wright was already describing this edition as rare. But it is, with the two volume 1816 edition, the earliest more or less easily obtainable edition of King Arthur available, though copies of the previous edition of 1634 occasionally come on the market. Gaines, A8, which does not distinguish between the states. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        LA MORT D'ARTHUR The Most Ancient and Famous History of the Renowned Prince Arthur, and the Knights of the Round Table.

      London: R. Wilks, 1816. Hardcover. Very Good. No jacket as issued. "Bound in full, 19th century leather with gilt spine decorations, gilt decorations to the boards, leather spine labels and marbled endpapers. Each volume contains an engraved frontispiece and vignette title page. In addition, vol.1 contains the folding plate of the Round Table. The work is illustrated as follows: vol.1) engraved frontispiece of the death of Sir Lancelot; vignette title page of the Lady of the Lake offering Arthur the sword; and the fold-out plate depicting Arthur and his knights at the Round Table; vol.2) engraved frontispiece of Sir Tristram & Isolde; vignette title page of the battle of Sir Tristram and Sir Lancelot; and vol.3) engraved frontispiece of Arthur drawing the sword from the stone; and vignette title page of Sir Percival fighting the 'serpent.' The printed title pages, in each volume, are those of the 1634 edition. This is a handsome set, an important edition of Sir Thomas Malory's compilation of French and English Arthurian romances. It marks the start of modern interest in Arthuriana. First published in 1485 by William Caxton, Le Morte d'Arthur is the birthplace and source for most subsequent Arthurian literature including T.H. White's The Once and Future King, Tennyson's Idylls of the King, and Steinbeck's The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights. The 1485 Caxton edition was followed by editions in 1498, 1529, 1557 and 1634. No further editions were printed until two competing editions were issued in 1816, of which this is one. 1816 stated. 24mo; 5 in. tall. In three volumes (326, 381 & 377 pp.). Some professional work was done to the spines (vol.1 with head and foot chips filled in); some light scuffing to the boards; some wear at the corners; some light foxing to the plates. The set is housed in a clamshell box, constructed by NYS binder Jack Fitterer. The box is done in leather & cloth with gilt lines and a striking image of Excalibur (given by the Lady of the Lake to Arthur) held by a hand rising from the water. Also imprinted are the title 'Prince Arthur' and the date '1816'. This is a scarce and important set protected by a lovely clamshell box." S. Lupack, bookseller.

        Glossarium Germanico-Latinum vocum obsoletarum primi et medii aevi, inprimis Bavaricarum (Band I. - alles !).

      München, Zangl, 1816. - Mit 2 lithographischen Tafeln, XLIV Seiten, 696 Spalten, roter Maroquinband der Zeit, 36 x 24 cm, Einband etwas berieben, unten am Rücken etwas gestaucht, innen sauber und frisch. Erklärung ungebräuchlicher, veralteter, entlegener und provinzieller Wendungen, teils. mit umfangreichen historischen Erläuterungen. "Was Westenrieder tatsächlich in seiner Publikation leistete, war eine Zusammenstellung von historischen Begriffen, auch aus der Wirtschafts– und Rechtsgeschichte, sowie von speziellen, in Bayern gebräuchlichen Termini, die in den von ihm selbst seit 1795 redigierten Bänden der Monumenta Boica vorkamen. Interessant und zugleich methodisch fragwürdig aber wird das Glossarium durch zusätzliche Aufnahme von ‘Provinzialismen’, wobei deren Auswahl eher zufälligen Charakters war" (Haefs).
