        Corso di letteratura drammatica. Traduzione italiana con note di Giovanni Gherardini.

      Milano, Stamp. Paolo Em. Giusti, 1817, - in-8, pp. 360; 364, (2); 384, (4); broch. orig. mute. Prima edizione della traduzione italiana dell'opera, condotta sulla prima edizione francese che l'autore pubblicò rielaborando completamente, rispetto all'originale tedesca pubblicata ad Heidelberg nel 1809, il testo delle lezioni da lui tenute a Vienna l'anno precedente. È divisa in 12 lezioni sui teatri classici e 5 lezioni sui teatri romantici (in particolare italiano fino all'Alfieri, francese, spagnolo, inglese e tedesco), con utili indici degli autori e dei titoli delle composizioni teatrali trattate. Da subito essa s'impose all'attenzione di tutta Europa ''enunciando in forma chiara ed eloquente princìpi e idee.che allora erano nuove e ardite. e (in Italia) attraverso il Manzoni acquistò subito capitale importanza per gli sviluppi ulteriori della nostra letteratura'' (Diz. Bompiani II, 463). Giov. Gherardini (Milano 1778-1861) fu medico e filsofo e questa sua traduzione fece testo fra gli scrittori drammatici della scuola romantica. Bellissimo esemplare a pieni margini, con barbe. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        WATERCOLOR VIEW OF WASHINGTON HALL, PHILADELPHIA, IN THE EARLY 19th CENTURY].

      Philadelphia. [ca. 1817]. - Watercolor on paper, approximately 10 x 14 1/2 inches. Slight loss of color along a portion of the top edge and in the sky of the image. A few scattered light fox marks and a bit dust soiled. Matted and framed. Good plus. A watercolor view of the headquarters of the Washington Benevolent Society in Philadelphia, by George Strickland, the younger brother of the noted American architect and proponent of the Greek Revival style, William Strickland. This was the basis for an engraving made the same year by William. George was trained in painting and engraving by William, and like his older brother had an interest in architecture. Washington Hall was designed by the noted American architect Robert Mills, and built between 1814 and 1816. Mills is best remembered today as the architect of the Washington Monument. The Hall was just completed when George Strickland made this watercolor. It was capable of holding nearly 6000 people. "Its most outstanding feature was of French inspiration: the half-domed niche, twenty- two feet in diameter, flanked by Ionic columns. The statue of George Washington as a standing figure, was carved by Benjamin Rush and erected in 1817."- Deak. Unfortunately, the Hall burned down in 1823. The Mansion House Hotel is visible in the left portion of the image. The mansion had originally been built as the home of William Bingham, a representative of Pennsylvania in the Continental Congress and then the United States Senate, but was turned into a hotel after his death in 1804. A handsome image of early American architecture. DEÁK, PICTURING AMERICA 300 (discussing the engraving made after this original).

      Royal 8vo (three volumes). Sometime rebound in arts and crafts style full crushed red morocco gilt by W. Root & Son, boards with double gilt-ruled fillet borders enclosing triple rules with crescent cornerpieces containing three gilt entwined flowers, spines gilt in compartments, lettered directly in two and at foot with imprint, others continuing three gilt entwined flowers motif, gilt-ruled board edges, parallel gilt-ruled turn-ins with three gilt entwined flower cornerpieces, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, red silk markers; Death I: pp. vii, [1 (blank)], 295, [1 (colophon)],[4 ('Index to the First Volume)]; Death II: pp. [2 (title-page, verso blank)], 299, [1 (blank)], [4 ('Index to Second Volume)]; Life: [2 (title-page, verso blank)], ii, ii, 285, [1 (blank)], missing 1 Advertisement leaf; Death I: hand-coloured engraved frontispiece retaining tissue guard, additional hand-coloured engraved title-page, 36 hand-coloured engravings retaining tissue guards; Death II: 36 hand-coloured engravings retaining tissue guards; Life: hand-coloured engraved frontispiece, additional hand-coloured engraved title-page, 24 hand-coloured engravings; slight marking to upper board of Death Vol. I and lower board of Death Vol. II, offsetting from turn-ins to endpapers, occasional very slight foxing throughout but nonetheless a clean copy in a handsome binding. First editions. Drawing on the tradition of the Dance of Death - an artistic genre of late-medieval allegory on the universality of death, no matter one's station in life - Rowlandson produced a contemporary version gleefuly skewering popular society. Originally published in parts, these editions were first published after completion and parts of the spine from the original cloth binding are mounted at large in the rear of the two volumes of The Dance of Death. As is not uncommon The Dance of Life is missing a single leaf of Advertisements at the rear, possibly lost at the point of binding. Tooley described the Dance of Death as 'Indispensable to any Rowlandson collection, one of the essential pivots of any colour plate Library, being one of the main works of Rowlandson.' (English Books with Coloured Plates, p. 334). W. Root & Son were known for their fine bindings and also worked on trade bindings and sets. The firm were based in Red Lion Square between 1899-1901, and the December 1942 issue of The Rotarian notes with regret that W. Root had been bombed out of their premises on Paternoster Row.

Band 9 hat ein, der Supplementband zwei andersfarbige Etiketten.

Die Bände sind innen & außen in überdurchschnittlicher, teils kaum besser möglicher Erhaltung. Wie auch den Außenbildern der insgesamt 12 Originalbilder in der Galerie zu entnehmen, sind die reichhaltigen Goldverzierungen auf den Rücken hervorragend erhalten. Ebenso der wunderschöne Buchschnitt. Die Rücken sind kaum berieben. Zudem haben Rücken & Außengelenke keine der sonst so häufigen Einrisse oder Fehlstellen. Die Buchdeckel sind ebenfalls sehr gut erhalten, lediglich etwas Bereibung, einige wenige mit einer stärker beriebenen Stelle oder einem Fleck. Die Bände sind an den Kanten nur gering berieben; ebenso die Ecken nur leicht bestoßen (außer bei einem Band immer nur ca eine Ecke überhaupt). Der anders gebundene Band 10 fällt in der Qualität ab: Etikett & Papierbezug mit kleinen Fehlstellen, Schnitt verblasst; Deckel, Kanten & Ecken stärker berieben / bestoßen. Keine fehlenden oder losen Seiten, kein unangenehmer Geruch. Buchblock noch fest. Keine Unterstreichungen, keine Fleckigkeit (von einigen Flecken auf den vorderen & hinteren Seiten bei zwei Bänden abgesehen). Seiten teils etwas gebräunt. Auf dem Vorsatz Abklatsch der Lederecken. Eine Seitenecke ist abgerissen (liegt bei). In einem Band ist die Schrift auf einigen wenigen Seiten schlechter leserlich (von der gegenüberliegenden Seite Schwärze abgedrückt). Auch hier wieder Band 10 abweichend mit durchgängiger Fleckigkeit. Wenn Sie sich mit dem abweichend gebundenen Band arrangieren können, erhalten Sie ein sehr dekorativ eingebundenes & vollständiges Exemplar dieser frühen Brockhaus-Auflage in ausgezeichnetem Zustand. 12000 Gramm.

        The Theory of Moral Sentiments … To which is added, A Dissertation on the Origin of Languages

      Philadelphia: Published by Anthony Finley … J. Maxwell Printer, 1817. First American edition, from the twelfth Edinburgh edition. vii, [i], 598, [2, ads] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary tree sheep. Rebacked, red morocco spine label. Text foxed and browned, waterstain to first 6 leaves. Signed S.P. Aldridge in contemporary hand on title-page and front pastedown. First American edition, from the twelfth Edinburgh edition. vii, [i], 598, [2, ads] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. The First American Edition of Adam Smith's First Book. Smith's first book, "written primarily for intellectuals concerned with the philosophical definition of virtue and social scientific explanation of how men become moral." (Muller p. 7) It established Smith's reputation as a philosopher and in this work, and his lectures of 1762-3 first appeared Smith's "development of a unified concept of an economic system and mutually interdependent parts" (O'Brien) which was further expanded and put forth in his "Wealth of Nations." When first published in 1759, this work was "received with acclaim" in England, Scotland and the Continent, Burke gave it an "intelligent and enthusiastic review in the 'Annual Review'" (Muller) but it was not published in America unti 1817. There was a resurgance of interest in Smith and in the Scottish Enlightenment in early nineteenth century. Finley, the publisher of this work, also published several other works by authors of the Scottish Enlightenment including Stewart's "Philosophical Essays." Smith's unfortunate portrayal of Americans as "the refuse of the jails of Europe[ and stating "That fortune never more cruelly exerted her empire over mankind than when she subjected those nations of heroes (the negroes) to the refuse of the jails of Europe" may not have helped his reception here. In fact, that statement did elicit a written response in "An Essay in Vindication of the Continental Colonies of America, from a Censure of Mr. Adam Smith, in his 'Theory of Moral Sentiments,' with Some Reflections on Slavery in General." By an American. (London: Printed for the Author, 1764) (Sabin 22933; Howes S570). Kress B7052; Muller, J. "Adam Smith in His Time and Ours"; O'Brien "The Classical Economists", 1975, p. 29; Shaw and Shoemaker 42128; Sabin 82314 For first edition: Vanderblue, p. 40; Goldsmith 9537; Higgs 1890; Einaudi 5346

        Denkschrift über Lord Elgin`s Erwerbungen in Griechenland. Nach der zweiten englischen Ausgabe bearbeitet, mit einer Vorrede von C.A. Böttiger und Bemerkungen der Weimarischen Kunst-Freunde.

      Leipzig und Altenburg, Brockhaus 1817.. Mit gest. Frontispiz. 99 S. Pappband d. Zt. Seltene deutsche Ausgabe über die heute eher als Kunstraub denn Erwerbungen bezeichneten Beutezüge des Thomas Bruce, 7. Earl of Elgin (1766-1841), deren Hauptstück, die Elgin Marbles, noch heute im British Museum zu bewundern sind. Lord Byron bezeichnete Elgin als "Kulturbarbaren", der allerdings den Transfer einer Unmenge an Kunstschätzen aus Griechenland nach England als Rettungsaktion verbrämte - die ihm das British Museum für die Marmorskulpturen des Parthenons mit der damals unglaublichen Summe £35000 belohnte. - Der Verfasser William Richard Hamilton (1777-1859), Privatsekretär Lord Elgins, interpretiert allerdings die Hintergründe dieses Kunsttransfers völlig anders; Hamilton sorgte selbst für einen bedeutenden archäologischen Zuwachs britischer Sammlungen: Er sicherte den Rosetta Stone für die britische Krone und überwachte den Transport von Ägypten nach England. - Das Frontispiz zeigt die Marmorskulpturen. - Etwas berieben und bestoßen. Tls. gebräunt.

        Pomona Britannica, or a collection of the most esteemed fruits at present cultivated in Great Britain.

      London: T. Bensley for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown and John Lepard, [1816]-1817. - 2 volumes. 4to., (14 x 11 3/8 inches). 2 letterpress title-pages, 4-page letterpress list of owners and locations of gardens at end (occasional spotting). 60 EXCEPTIONALLY FINE stipple-engraved plates by G. Brookshaw, printed in colour and finished by hand (occasional light spotting). Contemporary half maroon morocco, maroon cloth, the spines each in six compartments separated by five raised bands, gilt lettered in two (extremities quite rubbed and worn with loss). First quarto edition, first published as a large folio between 1804-1812. This edition is essentially a new work: the format was reduced from broadsheet to quarto, the plates were re-engraved by the author himself, their number reduced from 90 to 60, and the text was extensively re-worked. In this new work the plates are more realistic and useful, if less opulent, and include details of 174 cultivars of 15 types of fruit. The table at the end lists the owners and locations of the gardens from which Brookshaw obtained his specimens. All of the gardens are found within, or a short distance from London. Brookshaw was something of an enigma during his lifetime. His first career as a cabinet-maker specialising in painted furniture garnered him considerable success, wealth and royal patronage. Then in the mid-1790s he suddenly separated from his wife and abandoned cabinet-making, turning instead to teaching drawing, and publishing drawing manuals under the name of G. Brown. "Brookshaw's most important published work, which indeed is of some botanical significance, was his finely illustrated treatise on fruit growing, the Pomona Britannica, issued in parts from 1804-when he first resumed his own name-and as a single folio volume in 1812. It was dedicated to his most illustrious former patron, the Prince of Wales. But Brookshaw's renown in the botanical world never matched that of his cabinet-making career, and he failed to gain recognition by Sir Joseph Banks, Sir J. E. Smith, and other luminaries of the recently founded Horticultural Society-perhaps in part because of the mystery surrounding his past, which he undoubtedly suppressed deliberately" (Lucy Wood for DNB).

        Pomona Britannica, or a collection of the most esteemed fruits at present cultivated in Great Britain

      London: T. Bensley for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown and John Lepard, [1816-]1817. - 2 volumes in one. 4to., (13 2/8 x 10 6/8 inches). 2 letterpress title-pages, 4-page letterpress list of owners and locations of gardens at end. 60 EXCEPTIONALLY FINE AND BRIGHT stipple-engraved plates by G. Brookshaw, printed in colour and finished by hand (occasional light spotting). Modern half green morocco gilt. A FINE AND ATTRACTIVE COPY of first quarto edition. First published as a large folio between 1804-1812. This edition is essentially a new work: the format was reduced from broadsheet to quarto, the plates were re-engraved by the author himself, their number reduced from 90 to 60, and the text was extensively re-worked. In this new work the plates are more realistic and useful, if less opulent, and include details of 174 cultivars of 15 types of fruit. The table at the end lists the owners and locations of the gardens from which Brookshaw obtained his specimens. All of the gardens are found within, or a short distance from London. Brookshaw was something of an enigma during his lifetime. His first career as a cabinet-maker specialising in painted furniture garnered him considerable success, wealth and royal patronage. Then in the mid-1790s he suddenly separated from his wife and abandoned cabinet-making, turning instead to teaching drawing, and publishing drawing manuals under the name of G. Brown. "Brookshaw's most important published work, which indeed is of some botanical significance, was his finely illustrated treatise on fruit growing, the Pomona Britannica, issued in parts from 1804-when he first resumed his own name-and as a single folio volume in 1812. It was dedicated to his most illustrious former patron, the prince of Wales. But Brookshaw's renown in the botanical world never matched that of his cabinet-making career, and he failed to gain recognition by Sir Joseph Banks, Sir J. E. Smith, and other luminaries of the recently founded Horticultural Society-perhaps in part because of the mystery surrounding his past, which he undoubtedly suppressed deliberately" (Lucy Wood for DNB).

Contemporary mottled calf, with gilt foliate border and armorial device on both covers, the smooth spine in four compartments with red morocco gilt lettering piece in one and gilt decorated in the rest (extremities a bit worn). Provenance: With the contemporary bookplate of R. Chardey to front pastedown. From the important library of Jean R. Perrette, his sale, Ex Libris Jean R. Perrette: Important Travel, Exploration & Cartography, April 5, 2016, Christie's sale 12259, Lot 415, with Perrette's bookplate to the front pastedown. First edition. Describes the naval battle of Ushant between the Surveillante and HMS Quebec, in the early stages of the Anglo-French War (1778-1783). The war began when France formed an alliance with the United States during the American Revolutionary War and evolved into a global war spanning continents, with battles fought in many theatres. From 1778 to 1783, with or without their allies, France and Britain fought over dominance in the English Channel, the Mediterranean, the Indian Ocean and the West Indies. The eventual French victory was vital in the United States' independence from Britain. On 6 October 1779, the French frigate 'Surveillante,' helmed by Captain Couédic de Kergoaler, met with the 32-gun HMS 'Quebec,' led by Captain George Farmer, off the coast of the island of Ushant. A furious, three-and-a-half-hour-long battle ensued, with both sides suffering heavy casualties, and both ships completely dismasted. The battle ended when the 'Quebec,' firing through her own sails (which covered her gunports), caught fire and exploded. The 'Surveillante,' her hull leaking, had suffered 30 dead and 85 wounded. Her boat rescued whatever British crew had survived, and British and French sailors then had to work together to keep her afloat. She returned to Brest the next day, and the British are said to have been treated as castaways rather than prisoners of war. Sabin 69279.

      Annales de Chimie et de Physique, 1817, Disbound, Book Condition: Very Good Condition, First Edition.

        The Rights of Man. Being an Answer to Mr. Burke's Attack on the French Revolution. [bound with] .Part the Second, Combining Principle and Practice. [and] Sherwin's Weekly Political Register. Nos. 1 [to] 16, Vol. II (Oct. 4, 1817 - Jan. 17, 1818)

      London: W.T. Sherwin, 1817 - 8vo. vii, 98, (1); (xii), 118, iv, (2); 138 pp. Twentieth century tan morocco over matching boards by Chivers of Bath. Occasional light foxing, very good. An instant bestseller on its publication in 1791, its radical views led to a flurry of opposing pamphlets and quickly to Paine's exile. Still one of the most influential political tracts ever, it was dedicated to George Washington - "That the Rights of Man may become as universal as your benevolence can wish, and that you may enjoy the happiness of seeing the New World regenerate the Old." ".the clearest of all expositions of the basic principles of democracy." (Printing and the Mind of Man 241). Sherwin's Political Register was an enterprise founded by the fellow radicals Richard Carlile and William Sherwin, publishers of new editions of many of Paine's work. It was issued weekly between April 1817 and August 1819 and usually consisted of reports, articles and letters on the radical politics of the day, generally making itself unpopular with the Government and with the threat of prosecution never far away. Indeed, Carlile published the earliest first hand account of the Peterloo Massacre in one of its final issues, leading to its suppression and prompt refounding, a week or so later, as The Republican. Uncommon. Gimbel pp 93, 109. Complete with both parts.

This copy lacks the 10-page @Supplemento (paginated 415-424), issued separately in 1818 and rarely present (especially so in the case of the first issue), as most copies had been distributed before the @Supplemento was printed. Nicely printed on excellent paper, the edition was said to have been limited to 210 copies, of which 182 were offered gratis to many of the leading libraries and personalities of Europe. "A impressão luxuosa e extraordinariamente nitida, com caracteres inteiramente novos, é um padrão da perfeição typographica usada na opulenta casa Didot, de que ella já dera a prova em honra do nosso egregio poeta na edição anterior, de menor formato" (Brito Aranha). No expense was spared by the fifth Morgado de Mateus, D. José Maria de Sousa Botelho Mourão e Vasconcelos (1758-1825), a great landowner with holdings centered at Vila Real, one of the richest men in Europe, at whose behest the edition was produced. The Morgado de Mateus also wrote the introduction, consisting of an "Advertência" (pp. i-xlviii) and a "Vida de Camões" (pp. xlix-cxxx). Lignon engraved the frontispiece portrait of Camões after a design by Gérard, while Forsell (after Dessenne) engraved Camões in the @gruta named for him in Macau. The remaining 10 plates were engraved by Massard, Oortman, Henri Laurent, Bovinet, Pigeot, Toschi, Forster, and Richomme after designs by Dessenne (3) and Fragonard (7). *** Innocêncio V, 262-3.

        Italian scenery [i.e., Select views in Italy, with topographical and historical descriptions, in English and French].

      [London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. for J. Smith, W. Byrne, & J. Edwards 4to. [1] f. (engr. dedication), [78] ff. (of letterpress), [72] ff. of plates, illus.. 1817] Smith is remembered in art circles as a very accomplished water color artist and it was that work that attracted the attention of George Greville, second earl of Warwick. The earl became Smith's patron and sent him Italy where he produced such works as "Outside Porta Pia, Rome" (now in the Tate collection) and "Interior of the Coliseum" (now in the British Museum); "his Italian pictures . . . are considered Smith's best" (ODNB). Toward the end of the 18th century (1792–1799), Smith produced the first edition of this work, laden with => 72 engravings (by various artisans) after his original watercolors. This second edition of his Select Views in Italy was not issued with a title-page, although some copies have a copy (reprinting?, remainder sheet?) of the first edition's; it begins instead with a splendidly calligraphic => engraved dedication leaf reading, "Italian scenery. To the Queen's most Excellent Majesty this Collection of Select Views in italy is with Her Majesty's gracious permission Humbly dedicated by Her most obedient and devoted Servant, John Smith." Dated in text 18 January 1817, the leaf was designed by Tomkins and engraved by Ashby; at its bottom, as on a title-page, is "London[,] J. Smith, W. Byrne, & J. Edwards." The text in this edition, bilingual in => English and French, is the same as that of the first edition; but it was entirely reset and the plates are restrikes of those of the first edition, with the original imprints removed and the numeration moved to the top of the plates.

Werners Mineralsystem erschien erstmals 1789 und verbessert 1816 im "Bergmännischen Journal". Die letzte und relevante Ausgabe wurde 1817 posthum von seinen Studenten J. C. Freiesleben, A. Breithaupt und A. W. Köhler herausgegeben. - "Although Werner is best known for his contribution to the founding of geology as a science, he first achieved recognition as a mineralogist. He considered mineralogy to be the basis for all the study of the earth, dividing it into five branches, of which geognosy (historical geology) was one and oryctognosy (descriptive mineralogy) another. And during all the years in which his theories on geognosy were arousing so much interest and controversy, he continued to work on his mineralogical system, the final version of which appeared after his death in 1817" (DSB). - Titel mehrfach gestempelt. Vorsatz, Titel und ein Textblatt jeweils mit sehr gut restauriertem Ausschnitt (Textblatt mit geringem Buchstabenverlust), sonst sehr sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 14, 256; Wilson, Mineral Books S. 62; Norman 2207; Hoover 877; Freilich 554 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
