        Le chrétien par conviction et par sentiment : ou la foi sans incertitude et la pitié sans superstition. COPY SIGNED

      A Neufchatel : De l'imprimerie de la Société typographique 1778 - In-8° broché tel que paru non rogné, 224 pages. Envoi de l'auteur sur la page de titre (cf le scan) - - Jean Gal est né à Saint-André de Valborgne, dans les Cévennes, en janvier ou février 1720. Il est baptisé par le curé le 4 février comme l'exigeait la loi pour les nouveaux convertis. Mais il reçoit à la maison une éducation protestante puisqu'à 18 ans il se destine au ministère pastoral. Il est d'abord reçu comme postulant et accompagne un pasteur pendant quatre ans. A partir de 1742, il est nommé prédicant et peut tenir des assemblées. Une des premières assemblées qu'il préside est l'assemblée du col de Mouzoulès où il semble avoir manqué de prudence. Lorsque l'alarme est donnée, il ne veut pas en tenir compte et continue le culte. Onze personnes sont prises par les dragons, trois hommes sont envoyés aux galères, huit femmes sont capturées. Sept sont envoyées à la Tour de Constance et une fille de 10 ans au couvent à Anduze (Gard). Le 29 juin 1745, Jean Gal est reconnu comme proposant au synode de Valleraugue en même temps que d'autres condisciples. Il se ligue d'ailleurs avec deux d'entre eux contre le pasteur Jacques Boyer, largement leur aîné et qui avait contribué à la formation de Jean Gal. On leur a donné le surnom de triolet et ils furent vivement critiqués dans les paroisses qui soutenaient le pasteur Boyer. En octobre 1745, au synode de Thoiras (Gard), ils sont admonestés en public, interdits de présider un culte et envoyés au séminaire de Lausanne. Jean Gal reste moins d'un an au séminaire de Lausanne, de novembre 1745 à septembre 1746. Il se lie d'amitié avec Antoine Court et il entretient avec lui une correspondance suivie jusqu'au décès de celui-ci. Jean Gal reçoit l'ordination le 8 septembre 1748. Il est alors nommé pasteur de la région de Saint-Hippolyte et Ganges, c'est à dire des Basses Cévennes. A Ganges domine l'industrie du bas de soie, à Saint Hippolyte-du-Fort ce sont les tanneries. Il s'agit de deux villes commerçantes, animées par des foires quatre fois l'an. De 1748 à 1760, c'est encore la période du Désert héroïque et les persécutions sont fréquentes. Les soldats, dès qu'ils ne sont plus en guerre, sont de retour à Ganges et dans les villes alentour. Certaines années, il est difficile de tenir des assemblées et Jean Gal est obligé de se cacher. Malgré le danger, il se marie en juin 1750 avec une jeune veuve, Catherine Fabre, avec laquelle il aura une fille. Le 28 novembre 1751, il préside une assemblée à Roquedur qui réunit 3000 personnes. Dénoncée, elle est encerclée par les soldats mais seuls trois hommes sont pris. En 1752, les persécutions s'intensifient, un pasteur est exécuté sur l'esplanade de Montpellier. Jean Gal pense à quitter la France mais une accalmie survient et il reste. En 1752 son frère est reçu comme proposant et part au séminaire de Lausanne. Il deviendra en 1757 pasteur au Vigan. A partir de 1753 Jean Gal ne dessert plus Saint-Hippolyte qui est rattaché à Lasalle. Il est appelé par la paroisse de Bordeaux mais n'accepte pas ce poste. Par contre il y fait une tournée missionnaire de deux mois. En 1754, les persécutions redoublent, il ne peut tenir d'assemblées. Il écrit des sermons et les fait circuler parmi les protestants. Lorsqu'en août 1754 un autre pasteur est exécuté, il se décide à partir pour la Suisse et ne revient qu'en juillet 1755. La lettre aux évêques de France accompagnés de quelques réflexions sur la tolérance par un ministre du Désert est éditée en 1766 et connaît un grand succès. Elle contribue à faire connaître Gal-Pomaret au-delà de sa province. En 1778, parait le chrétien par conviction et par sentiments ou la foi sans incertitude et la piété sans superstition. Dans cet ouvrage en cinq parties (Dieu, le Christ, l'Écriture, la pratique religieuse, la tolérance), Gal-Pomaret tente de rendre le fidèle protestant plus apte à défendre sa foi. Il cite abondamment l'Écriture mais également les philosophes de l'antiquité ou de la modernité. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Indfødsretten i Fire Sange.

      Kbhvn.: Horrebow 1778. Med 2 smukke kobberstukne vignetter af Meno Haas. Rent og velholdt eksemplar på kraftigt papir med bred margin indbundet i smukt marmoreret hellæder med guldbordure og lidt slidt rygforgyldning. * Eksemplaret har været en gave til digteren Hans Hartvig Seedorff fra hans moder, dat. 2. Febr. 1913.Storm var født i Gudbrandsdalen i Norge. "..men først med Indfødsretten slog Storm sit navn fast. Det danske litteraturselskab havde udsat en prisopgave om dette emne. Storm vandt prisen og fik tillige en årlig hædersgave på 100 rdl. af kongens kasse og lige så meget af arveprinsens. Det statelige men yderst retoriske digt fremstiller hvor fordærvelig fremmed indflydelse lige fra de ældste tider har virket på det nordisk-danske." [Sven H. Rossel].Indfødsretten, lov om statsborgerskab, proklameret under store festligheder på Christian 7.s fødselsdag 29.1.1776. Indfødsretten fik forfatningskarakter, og enevoldskongen lovede, at den aldrig ville blive trukket tilbage. Herefter var det en betingelse for at få embede i staten, at man var født i staten, der defineredes som samtlige kongens riger og lande, dvs. Danmark, Norge og hertugdømmerne Slesvig og Holsten. Undtagelsesbestemmelser med henblik på at tiltrække rige udlændinge var få og fik ringe betydning. Politisk sigtede loven mod at skabe troskab mod konge og helstat i den sprogligt og kulturelt sammensatte stat efter rystelserne under J.F. Struensees diktatur 1770-72. Indfødsretten legitimerede den nationale identitet, der havde udviklet sig i borgerlige danske kredse, og her blev den modtaget med spontan begejstring. Den formåede dog ikke at udrydde den danske modvilje mod kongens tysktalende undersåtter, som kulminerede med Tyskerfejden 1789-90. [Gyldendals Store Danske].

The central publications of the controversy that erupted when Lessing published 'fragments' of the work of Hermann Samuel Reimarus that attacked Lutheran orthodoxy and argued for a rational deism, rejecting the theology of revelation. This led to an exchange of polemical pamphlets between Lessing and the principle defender of Lutheranism, Johann Melchior Goeze, a pastor from Hamburg. These culminated in Lessing's 11 'Anti-Goeze' tracts, that contain the seeds of his thoughts regarding religion that became the foundation of 'Nathan the Wise.' The so-called Fragmentes Dispute is considered the most important theological controversy of the 18th century, pitting Lessing's Enlightenment philosophy against Lutheran orthodoxy.

Contemporary full calf with gilt border to covers, twin red and green title labels (respined in calf), combed marble endpapers. Very good. The twentieth volume of the series; a most important year. The idea of this annual was that of Edmund Burke, one of the major British Statesmen of the late 18th century. The Register was the most important factual magazine of its time, giving in-depth coverage of political and social events, plus reviews of important literary publications, and is today an invaluable account of American history of the time. This volume includes, within the 'History' section, 'Retrospective view of American Affairs in the year 1776', plus detailed accounts of key episodes within the War of Independence including 'State of the American Force', 'General Lee Taken', 'Critical State of Pennsylvania' Washington attacks Col.Mawhood near Princetown, 'Americans over-run thew Jerseys', British forces keep Brunswick and Amboy'., and 'Indian War'.The 'Chronicle' section reprints correspondence between Lord Howe and Dr.Franklin and the 'State Papers' includes John Hancock's 'American Oath of Allegiance'. Among the literary and scientific articles are 'Extracts from the Life of David Hume', 'Account of the Savage Tribes of America' (Robertson), Extracts from Cook's Voyage including the existence of a southern continent, and an account of poisonous fish in the South Seas, extracts from Evelyn's Sylva, 'On the Origin of the Name of Old Nick', Poems by Dr.Johnson, Garrick and Sheridan, plus book reviews of Robertson's History of America, and Capt. Cook's Voyage to the South Pole. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Museum Britannicum, being an Exhibition of the great Variety of Antiquities and Natural Curiosities, belonging to that noble and magnificent Cabinet, the British Museum . by John and Andrew van Rymsdyk, Pictors.

      London, printed by I Moore, for the Authors, 1778 - Folio (429 x 266 mm), pp [iv] xvi 84, title in red and black, with mezzotint vignette of museum on title, two mezzotint plates in text (on p 44 and 78), and 30 mezzotint plates, all in contemporary hand-colouring with some colour-printing ; some foxing throughout as usual, a very good copy in contemporary calf and marbled boards, gilt urns in panels on spine, later label, gilt edges. First edition of Rymsdyk’s catalogue of curiosities, natural and artificial, in the newly founded British Museum. ‘The British Museum was first opened on 12 January 1759, and the earliest connection between the Museum and Rymsdyk is noted in its Register of Admission to the Reading Room, 1762-1781 (Add. MS. 45869). Under the date 16 July 1772 is recorded: “Mr. Van Rymsdyk to copy Birds, &c. 6 months”; and on 17 February 1774: “Mr. Rymsdyk desire to have their leave renewed for six months”’ (Thornton). Rymsdyk, an artist best known for the plates in William Hunter’s Gravid uteris (1774) and William Smellie’s Anatomical tables (1754), worked for several years in preparing the Museum Britannicum. Not only did he execute the drawings for the plates, but also wrote the ‘extensive descriptions of the plates. These are not bare annotations such as would be found as captions to museum objects, but indicate a wide range of scholarship on the part of the author.’ (ibid). The plates emphasise the strong link with the traditional Wunderkammer: among objects depicted are the Scythian or Vegetable Lamb, the Bird of Paradise, an Incrustated Scull, a Coral Hand, a Brick from the Tower of Babel, Graptolithi, Figured Slates, and an Agat with the Eclipse on the Sun, along with more common antiquities. At the end of the preface the names and numbers of several items of the late Sir Hans Sloane are listed, along with an abstract of Sir William Hamilton's collection of antiquities. ‘By 1764 Rymsdyk had returned to London with his son Andrew, and was again in the employ of William Hunter as an anatomical draughtsman. On 16 July 1772 Rymsdyk first obtained permission from the British Museum for access to the exhibits to make drawings (Add. MS 45869, fol. 49v). In 1778 the Museum Britannicum, being an exhibition of a great variety of antiquities and natural curiosities was published, illustrated with prints after drawings by Rymsdyk and his son Andrew of a selection of objects in the British Museum. A second edition appeared posthumously in 1791. The text is by Jan van Rymsdyk and the extensive annotations frequently reveal his wide range of interests as well as a difficult and petulant character. There are several references to what he considered his lost career as a painter and his lengthy servitude to those who did not fully appreciate him, an allusion to William Hunter. The preparatory drawings, mainly in delicate coloured wash, are in the British Museum print room. The book, according to a supplementary obituary notice of Andrew van Rymsdyk, was not a financial success (GM, 1145) . ‘Further anatomical, pathological, and natural history drawings and pastels by Rymsdyk are in the Royal College of Surgeons, London, the British Museum, and the Hunterian collection, University of Glasgow, including those for illustrations to papers in the journal Medical Observations and Inquiries. Few of his prints survive. He contributed only one engraved figure to Hunter’s Gravid Uterus and one plate to the Museum Britannicum, preferring instead to hire engravers for the latter book for which he advertised in the Daily Advertiser (20 September 1775). Rymsdyk was also a collector of old-master drawings, those that he owned identifiable by the mark “Rymsdyk’s Museum”. These are now in various collections, including the British Museum’ (Monique Kornell in ODNB). The ‘Andrew van Rymsdyk’ on the title refers to Jan’s son and assistant Andreas (1753/4–1786).

Leaf Ee3 misbound after Ee1 in vol. I, half-title in vol. II bound after title. Contemporary polished calf, spines gilt-decorated in compartments and with gilt-lettered morocco labels, board edges tooled in gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt (hinges and spine ends repaired, corners worn, extremities rubbed). Very little browning of text, occasional minor spotting, but generally clean and crisp. Tears without loss to margins of leaves Nn3 and Tt3 in vol. I and leaf Ddd1 in vol. II. Provenance: From the library of Peter Bauer (1915-2002), developmental economist and late Emeritus Professor at the London School of Economics. An excellent and extremely wide-margine copy in original binding. ---- Goldsmith 11663; Grolier, 100 English, 57; Einaudi 5329; Kress B154; cf. PMM 221 (first edition). - RARE SECOND EDITION and the only other edition to be published in quarto format. Adam Smith (1723-1790) spent ten years in the writing and perfecting of The Wealth of Nations. "The book succeeded at once, and the first edition was exhausted in six months . Whether it be true or not, as Buckle said, that the 'Wealth of Nations' was, 'in its ultimate results, probably the most important that had ever been written' . it is probable that no book can be mentioned which so rapidly became an authority both with statesmen and philosophers" (DNB). "The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory . his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. "The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity . Labour represents the three essential elements - wages, profit and rent - and these three also constitute income. From the workings of the economy, Smith passes to its matter 'stock' which encompasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or the return it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control. Where the political aspects of human rights had taken two centuries to explore, Smith's achievement was to bring the study of economic aspects to the same point in a single work. The Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is completely convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (PMM). The second edition is the rarest of the early editions of Wealth of Nations, of which only 500 copies were printed. A number of these sheets for this edition may well have been used from the first edition of 1776. "The second edition exhibits a number of alterations large and small, some providing new information, some correcting matters of fact, some perfecting the idiom, and large number now documenting references in footnotes" (William B. Todd, in the 1976 Oxford edition of The Wealth of Nations). - Visit our website for additional images and information. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The central publications of the controversy that erupted when Lessing published 'fragments' of the work of Hermann Samuel Reimarus that attacked Lutheran orthodoxy and argued for a rational deism, rejecting the theology of revelation. This led to an exchange of polemical pamphlets between Lessing and the principle defender of Lutheranism, Johann Melchior Goeze, a pastor from Hamburg. These culminated in Lessing's 11 'Anti-Goeze' tracts, that contain the seeds of his thoughts regarding religion that became the foundation of 'Nathan the Wise.' The so-called Fragmentes Dispute is considered the most important theological controversy of the 18th century, pitting Lessing's Enlightenment philosophy against Lutheran orthodoxy.

        John Jones

      ca. 1778. A curious fragment, what appears to be piece of an address panel, 2.75" x 1.5" bearing the address: <I>"Capt[ain] Simpson on Board the Ship Ranger"</I>. <br /><br />The Ranger was the sloop that John Paul Jones commanded en route from America to France in 1777 and used in raids into 1778. Lieutenant Thomas Simpson was his second in command, and after Jones assumed command of the Bonhomme Richard in 1778, Simpson took over the Ranger. Before he assumed command, Simpson who was quite popular with the crew, would lead a mutiny against Jones amidst battle and be imprisoned for his actions. Upon granting command of the Ranger to John Paul Jones, the maritime committee of the Continental Congress instructed him to proceed to France and report to the American commissioners in Paris for instructions. The committee promised Jones that once in France, he would be given command of the frigate Indien, then under construction in Amsterdam under American contract. Upon his arrival in Paris, he found that the commissioners, for political reasons, had transferred ownership of the frigate to King Louis XVI. Jones decided to use the Ranger in the meantime and in April, 1778 set sail from Brest for the Irish Sea.<br /><br />During the cruise, in which he raided the Scottish coast and captured the British naval sloop Drake. Prior to taking the Drake, his lieutenant, Thomas Simpson, had staged a near-mutiny among the crew against Jones. Unlike Jones, who was disliked by his men for his violent temper and insistence on severe discipline, Simpson was very popular with the crew. He became confident that he would assume command of the Ranger upon first arriving in France and chafed under Jones' command and was disappointed when circumstances did not allow this. Moreover, Simpson, and many on the crew thought Jones' to be generally reckless, especially when he contemplated assault of the British ship in broad daylight. <br /><br />According to Jones, just before the Ranger was to engage the Drake, Simpson "held up the crew that being Americans fighting for liberty, the voice of the people should be taken before the Captain's orders were obeyed.". For this, Jones placed Simpson under arrest. Upon his return to France in June, 1778 he traveled to Paris to again meet with the American commissioners who were quite troubled by the imprisonment of Simpson. They eventually convinced Jones to release Simpson and place him in command of the Ranger. <br /><br />The Ranger's surgeon recorded in his diary on July 27: "This day Thomas Simpson, Esqr. came on board with orders to take command of the Ranger, to the joy and satisfaction of the whole Ships company." Soon after, the Ranger sailed for America. Thomas Simpson resigned his commission when we was passed over for a promotion by the Continental Congress in 1779. The Ranger continued in service, operating in the Atlantic until she was captured at Charleston in May 1780 when the city fell to the British. On the verso is a short note most likely in the hand of Samuel A. OTIS (1740-1814) which reads: "Bal - 1427.75 Int. 1 July 1790 Sam A Otis For Ja[me]s. Sullivan---" Otis is most likely referring to James Sullivan (1744-1808) who was an early advocate of expanded rights for women. Slightly rough margins, else quite bright and clean and in fine condition.

        Dichterin (1785-1859), vor ihrer Heirat mit Achim von Arnim (1811) geb. Brentano: Eigenh. Brief ohne U., O. u. D.

      Quer-Kl.-4. 1 S. "Lieber Tieck, sogleich wird mich C l e m e n s [ihr Bruder Clemens Brentano (1778-1842)] ablösen, um Ihnen den Zweck dieses Briefes deutlich zu machen. Wann kommen Sie hier her, wahrscheinlich wenn ich weg gehe, dann können Sie in meinem Zimmer wohnen, ich werde eine Kaze (sic!) anschaffen zu Ihrer Gesellschaft. Der Überbringer dieses Briefes, ist ein unschuldig in Sie verliebter, wie ich höre. Freund ich bitte, sind Sie kriegerischer Natur [di]eß einzige mögt ich nur wissen, wegen gewißen Ursachen, ob Sie nehmlich im Stande sind ein Gewehr ohne Zittern abzuschießen. oder gehen Sie lieber mit Bogen und Pfeil um, weil es nicht knallt, es ist mir sehr [im Original unterstrichen] wichtig dieß zu wißen." - / - 1808 wurde Schelling Generalsekretär der neu gegründeten Akademie der Bildenden Künste in München. Friedrich Carl von Savigny, ein Studienfreund von Clemens Brentano, war seit seiner Hochzeit (1804) mit dessen älteren Schwester Kunigunde Brentano auch mit Bettine verschwägert. 1808 wurde er auf eine ordentliche Professur für römisches Zivilrecht an die Universität Landshut berufen. Und so wurde München 1808/09 ein Treffpunkt der Romantiker. - // - Der befreundete Dichter Ludwig Tieck (1773-1853), dem Bettine sehr zugetan war, ist am 19. Oktober 1808 zusammen mit seiner Schwester (Sophie Tieck-Bernhardi) in München angekommen, wie immer ohne Geld, und hatte sich am Maximiliansplatz eine ziemlich kostspielige Wohnung genommen. Mit "Adler" ist vermutlich der "Schwarze Adler" in der Kaufingerstr. gemeint. Schon am 25. Oktober 1808 schreibt Bettine an Savigny: "Den Abend habe ich mit Tieck zugebracht." - Am 26. November: "Tieck war gestern bei mir und las mir etwas von sich vor, was mich entzückt hat" - // - Bettine wohnte in München in der Rosenstraße bei Elisabeth von Moy, einer Freundin ihrer verstorbenen Schwester Sophie. - Clemens war mit seiner Frau Auguste am 28. September 1808 in München eingetroffen und wohnte notdürftig bei Bettine, wollte jedoch nach Landshut (zu Savigny) übersiedeln. Am 16. Oktober reiste er nach Landshut weiter. Am 29. November kam er wieder nach München und traf am 30. November 1808 Tieck und dessen Schwester. Am 10. Dezember reisten Bettine, und vermutlich auch Clemens, nach Landshut. Bettine verbrachte die Weihnachtstage dort und reiste am 31. Dezember wieder nach München. - // - An Weihnachten erkrankte Tieck an Gicht. - Da es im Brief heißt: "Wann kommen Sie hier her", ist er noch vor der Erkrankung geschrieben worden. Unser Brief entstand also wohl zwischen dem 29. November und dem 10. Dezember, der Abreise Bettines und Clemens nach Landshut. - Clemens kommt erst wieder am 23./24. Februar nach München, nach dem fingierten Selbstmordversuch seiner Frau er wohnt im "Goldenen Hahn" und besucht Tieck. Mietet sich am 25. Februar 1809 beim Schneider Schleicher in der Rosengasse ein und flieht am 27. Februar vor seiner Frau nach Landshut, wo er sich versteckt hält bis Ende März. - // - Was die kriegerischen Attribute betrifft, so könnte Bettine Tieck aufgefordert haben, Clemens und Achim von Arnim gegen die Kritik Voß am "Wunderhorn" zu verteidigen, die am 25./26. November 1808 im "Morgenblatt" erschienen war. Denn es war am 30. November bei dem Treffen mit Tieck und dessen Schwester zum Streit über das "Wunderhorn" gekommen. - Kleiner, ausgebesserter Randschaden vom Entsiegeln. - Mit Siegelrest und Adresse (nur diese nicht von Bettines Hand, möglicherweise hat sie der im Text angesprochene "Überbringer" geschrieben): "Ludewig Tiek / Maxplatz No 10, oder im Adler zu erfragen / München". - Die Unterschrift ist abgeschnitten, sonst gut.

        Stratégie de négociation avec les Anglais sur l'Inde.

      - 1 manuscrit 7 In-folio vers 1778 bords extérieurs de la première page poussiéreux et effrangés. Très intéressant manuscrit de premier jet, avec ratures et corrections. L'auteur, vraisemblablement diplomate ou stratège (non identifié), analyse les causes de la défaite de la France en Inde, au début de la guerre, la reddition de Pondichéry et autres places, la puissance et la volonté des Anglais. Puis il expose un moyen de rétablir la situation sur le sol indien, par une alliance Hider-Alin Khan, le seul, selon lui, à pouvoir braver la suprématie anglaise (il fut l'un des plus valereux guerriers de l'Inde, en menant plusieurs combats avec Suffren en 1781 et 1782 ; en mourant le 7 décembre 1782, la stratégie française fut profondément affectée). «Il peut donner une grande secousse à l'Empire que se sont fait les Anglais dans l'Inde. Si nous nous joignons à lui et que nous parvenions à enlever le Maduré, le Madara, et le royaume d'Arcate et une partie de la côte d'Orixa, il ne sera peut-être pas difficile de faire consentir à l'Angleterre un partage bien inégal, mais assez pour mettre en mesure de faire un commerce avantageux et de faire percevoir des revenus assez considérables [.]».

        Cathedral Music: Being A Collection in Score of the Most Valuable and Useful Compositions for that Service, by the Several English Masters Of the last Two Hundred Years. The Whole Selected and Carefully Revis'd By the late Dr. William Boyce, Organist and Composer to the Royal Chapels, and Master of his Majesty's Band of Musicians. Volume the First [-Third]... Second Edition

      [London]: Printed for John Ashley, 1778. Second Edition. BUC p. 129. RISM BII, p. 124. "When Cathedral Music was eventually published (1760-73), it established a canon of English church music ranging from Tallis and Tye to Boyce's immediate predecessors Croft and Weldon. The preface identifies its primary purpose to preserve the music of past masters 'in its original purity', at the same time to make such music available in score as a replacement for the often faulty manuscript partbooks then generally in use. Cathedral Music retained its place in cathedral usage into the 20th century, and has been justly described as 'a landmark in the history of musicology, and a fitting monument to his industry and scholarly enterprise' (Johnstone, 1975)." Robert J. Brice and ian Bartlett in Grove Music Online.. 3 volumes. Folio. Full contemporary mid-tan suede with dark red title label gilt to uppers stamped "Trinity College Chapel," raised bands on spine with black leather title labels gilt. Volume I: 1f.

Sherwin... Decr. 1st 1788." Two lines of contemporary musical manuscript notation laid down to recto of frontispiece on small slip of paper, 43 x 228 mm. annotation (in all likelihood an early ownership signature) to lower outer corner of title erased; address to the King trimmed at outer margin, just affecting several letters of text.

The work established once and for all that basalt, a rock important scientifically because of its distinctive characteristics, its widespread occurence, and the manner of its association with other kinds of rocks, was the product of volcanic action" (DSB). - Titel mit zwei kleinen schwachen Flecken am äußeren Rand.
