         Skizzen physischer und moralischer Gegenstaende. Für die Jugend in 24 Kupfertafeln vorgestellt.

      Nürnberg, Trautner o. J. (ca. 1796). - 4°. 25 Bl. mit gestoch. Titel u. 24 fast ganzs. handkol. Kupfertafeln u. gestoch. Text. Pbd. d. Zt. Doderer-Müller 95. Rümann 324. Rammensee 490. Wegehaupt I, 691. - Erste und einzige Ausgabe des äußerst seltenen frühen Bilderbuchs mit 24 Kinder- und Familienszenen in chronologischer Reihenfolge und gestochenem Text. - "Das wohl schönste Kinderbuch Gablers sind jedoch die Skizzen physischer und moralischer Gegenstände. Wann der heute nur noch in vier Exemplaren bekannte Kupferband zuerst erschien, läßt sich nicht ermitteln" (Horst Kunze, Historische Kinderbücher, Band 25, S. 4). Heute sind ca. 19 Exemplare in Bibliotheken nachweisbar. Die erste Kupfertafel zeigt eine Kinderstube, danach werden die vier Elemente veranschaulicht: Kinder beim Drachensteigen, bei der Gartenarbeit, beim Spielen am Wasser und beim Betrachten eines Feuerwerks. Darauf folgt eine Darstellung der fünf Sinne in Familienszenen, danach die Tageszeiten im Dorf, die vier Lebensalter und schließlich Armut, Reichtum, Gesundheit, Krankheit, Tod und Begräbnis. Die realistischen Szenen aus dem bürgerlichen Alltag erinnern an Chodowiecki, sie sind aber durch das große Format und die klaren Aussagen besonders für den Anschauungsunterricht von Kindern geeignet. - Zur aktuellen Forschung über den Nürnberger Maler und Kupferstecher Ambrosius Gabler (1762-1834) siehe Heidrun Ludwig, Nürnberger naturgeschichtliche Malerei im 17. und 18.

         George Washington’s Farewell Address

      Harford, CT 1796 - Newspaper, American Mercury, September 26, 1796. Hartford, CT: Elisha Babcock. 4 pp., 11 1/4 x 17 5/8 in. Washington's September 17th Farewell Address is printed in full on pages two to three, signed in type. Partially separated, with loss to interior margin well clear of text. Rubber stamp arrow at the beginning and end of the address. With additional important Washington content. "Though, in reviewing the incidents of my administration, I am unconscious of intentional error, I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects not to think it probable that I may have committed many errors. Whatever they may be, I fervently beseech the Almighty to avert or mitigate the evils to which they may tend. I shall also carry with me the hope that my country will never cease to view them with indulgence; and that, after forty five years of my life dedicated to its service with an upright zeal, the faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion."At the end of his second term, Washington sent an open letter emphasizing the importance of unity and warning Americans against entanglements with foreign powers. Though he had initially solicited James Madison's assistance in crafting his remarks, Alexander Hamilton's second draft is the basis of the final address. Delivered to Congress in writing, Washington's Farewell Address warns against the dangers of sectionalism, and criticizes "the insidious wiles of foreign influence," referring to the pro-French sentiments of Jefferson and the Republicans. Washington's policy during the wars between Great Britain and France in the early 1790s had been one of strict neutrality, and in the closing paragraphs of his Address he argues for continued American isolationism. America heeded his advice against joining a permanent alliance for more than a century and a half. Excerpts:"The period for a new election of a Citizen, to administer the Executive Government of the United States being not far distant.it appears to me proper. that I shall now apprise you of the resolution I have formed, to decline being considered. I have the consolation to believe that, while choice and prudence invite me to quit the political scene, patriotism does not forbid it. Profoundly penetrated with this idea, I shall carry it with me to my grave, as a strong incitement to unceasing vows that heaven may continue to you the choicest tokens of its beneficence; that your union and brotherly affection may be perpetual; that the free Constitution, which is the work of your hands, may be sacredly maintained; that its administration in every department may be stamped with wisdom and virtue; that, in fine, the happiness of the people of these States, under the auspices of liberty, may be made complete by so careful a preservation and so prudent a use of this blessing as will acquire to them the glory of recommending it to the applause, the affection, and adoption of every nation which is yet a stranger to it.""Here, perhaps, I ought to stop. But solicitude for your welfare, which cannot end but with my life, and the apprehension of danger, natural to that solicitude, urge me on an occasion like the present, to offer to your solemn contemplation, and to recommend to your frequent review, some sentiments: which are the result of much reflection.""The unity of government which constitutes you one people is also now dear to you. It is justly so, for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very liberty which you so highly prize. But as it is easy to foresee that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively.

         Arte de la lengua Tacala y manual Tagalog [bound with, as issued] Manual Tagalog

      1796 - Printed in Manila on rice paper, a cornerstone Tagalog language manual. 1796. Sampaloc, Manila. Imprenta de Nuestra Senora de Loreto, por Pedro Arguelles de la Concepcion. 4to (205 x 155 mm). [16], 148, [6]; [2], 247, [3] pp. Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in ink, minor wear and soiling, but an untouched binding. Light browning throughout, coming disbound in spots, closed tears to leaves T4-5. 12,000 $ A fine copy, in its absolutely genuine condition, of the second edition of this guide to Tagalog, to-date a national language of the Philippines. Totanes (1688 – 1748) was a Spanish Franciscan Friar and missionary to Mexico and the Philippines; when 17 years old, Totanes entered the Franciscan Order, which would eventually take him to the Philippines, at age 26. That he did on board the Virgen de Atocha, first arriving to Mexico, and a year later –after teaching philosophy and theology at the Convento de San Agustin- sailed from Acapulco towards Manila. He resided in the Philippines for c. 30 years, working with natives and eventually appointed Prior to the Convent of Manila. “This Arte by Father Totanes is considered the best of all the writings by whose help the Spaniards learnt the Tagala language. Taking it is a whole it is based on the work of father San José, whose first edition was published in 1610; but as it was published so many years later it also combines the various improvements introduced by the Dominican and other writers Being printed entirely on rice paper, copies of this work are usually damaged or very badly wormed” (Maggs Bros, Spanish Books, 1927). According to Retana, this is the best of all manuals on the Tagalog language. It is today spoken by almost 25 million people in the Philippines –mostly-, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia; nowadays, it is discussed if the Filipino language is nothing other than the Tagalog, with influence of English. The Arte is a primary source to the language, and one of the most significant Asian printings of the 18th century in the field of linguistics.

         Cimelia Physica. Figures of rare and curious Quadrupeds, Birds, etc. With descriptions by George Shaw.

      London, 1796. In-folio, pp. (2), 106, (12) e 60 tavole colorate a mano da Miller, alcune stampate in seppia e rialzate a la gomme, di cui 41 di argomento ornitologico stampate da Bensley e Lance; in fine aggiunte sette tavole di argomento floreale. Notevole per grazia e raffinatezza compositiva anche il frontespizio illustrato. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle e angoli, carta decorata ai piatti, tassello con titolo al dorso. Le tavole apparvero per la prima volta tra 1776 e 1792 con il titolo "Vari soggetti della storia naturale", ma questa raccolta risulta praticamente sconosciuta. Il testo di Shaw appare invece solo in questa edizione del 1796. John Frederick Miller, figlio di noto artista botanico John Miller, lavorò presso Sir Joseph Banks, naturalista e botanico inglese a lungo a capo della Royal Society. Grazie al suo lavoro Miller ebbe quindi occasione di dipingere e incidere questi soggetti, probabilmente anche colorando le tavole. I Cimelia sono conosciuti soprattutto come un'opera ornitologica, ma contengono anche numerosi importanti ritratti vegetali, la maggior parte delle quali sono le prime illustrazioni della specie raffigurata.  Buon esemplare, alla sguardia anteriore timbro di collezione privata del XX secolo. .  Bird Books p. 94; Nissen IVB 638; Stafleu and Cowan 6033; Wood p. 465; Zimmer p. 585. .

         The Fables …

      London: by T. Bensley for J. Edwards and E. & S. Harding,, 1796. ornamented with engravings from the pencil of the Right Hon. Lady Diana Beauclerc. London, by T. Bensley for J. Edwards and E. Harding, 1797; [bound with:] BÜRGER, Gottfried Augustus. Leonora. Translated from the German … by W. R. Spencer. With designs by the Right Honourable Lady Diana Beauclerc. 2 works bound in 1, folio (365 × 255 mm). Fine contemporary binding of green straight-grain morocco, spine attractively gilt in compartments with interlocking wave tools, gilt lettered in second panel, sides with thick-and-thin rule enclosing a floral scroll border in gilt, gilt inner dentelles, pink endpapers, gilt edges, fore-edge gauffered. Fables: 9 engraved plates, 15 engraved vignettes; Leonora: engraved frontispiece, 4 engraved plates, 4 engraved vignettes, most signed by Bartolozzi after Beauclerc. Leonora with parallel text, German and English. A little rubbing, some offsetting and faint browning, a most attractive pair. First editions with these Bartolozzi engravings, the only two works illustrated by Lady Diana Beauclerc, here together in handsome contemporary full morocco. Dryden's adaptations of Chaucer and Boccaccio were among the chief reasons for his perhaps surprisingly high place in the esteem of the Romantic poets, especially Coleridge, Keats, Byron and Scott, while Bürger's Leonora inspired a frenzy of competing English versions around this time. Ironically Bürger had found his ballad form not in German literature, but largely through the medium of Percy's Reliques; from Leonora it was reabsorbed into English through the Lyrical Ballads, most directly Wordsworth's "The Idiot Boy".
