        TO THE VOTERS OF THE CITY AND COUNTY OF BALTIMORE. GENTLEMEN..

      Baltimore: Printed by Yundt and Brown, No. 12, South Gay-Street, 1798. Broadside. 7-7/8" x 20". Printed in three columns. Lightly toned. Light foxing. Very Good. Matted.When this broadside was published Smith was a U.S. Congressman from Maryland. A resident of Baltimore, he had served with distinction in the Revolution and had commanded Maryland's troops during the Whisky Rebellion. Afterwards, as a Jeffersonian he was elected United States Senator from Maryland for two terms and was later returned as a Congressman.Despite his unimpeachable record Smith ran into trouble with his Maryland rivals, recorded in this broadside. According to various sources, Smith "told the president at his own table" that our envoys should pay the bribe demanded by Talleyrand and his French companions. "The president answered, that he would not give the value of the duty on a pound of tea! for the PRINCIPLE was everything with us... The president instantly, with additional emphasis, observed to him, Sir, if that be your serious opinion, you cannot be an American, a republican or a virtuous man." Smith claims-- rather weakly, unfortunately-- that he was just joking. Bristol B10554. Shipton & Mooney 48643. ESTC W5666 [1- NYPL].

        A new dictionary of the spanish and english languages in four volumes..

      Madrid: Printed in the King's Press by Pedro Julian Pereyra, Printer to His Cath. Maj., 1798. Two of four volumes only, i.e. Spanish-English A-Z. [16], 956, 1097, [3]; [6], 1097pp, [3]. Terminal two leaves of Vol. II duplicated at the end of Vol. I. Parallel English and Spanish title-pages. Contemporary speckled sheep, contrasting red and black morocco lettering-pieces, gilt. Extremities worn, surface loss to boards. Marbled endpapers, book-labels and armorial bookplates of Viscount Exmouth to both FEPs, ink ownership inscriptions of Ed. Pellew to verso of both English title-pages, short closed tear to text of leaf Gg2, Vol. I - without loss of sense, very slight marginal loss to leaves Q1, T7, Vol. II, occasional browning. The first two volumes only of this authoritative Spanish and English dictionary published in Madrid by the printer to Charles IV - and as such the first Spanish and English bilingual dictionary to be printed and published in Spain. The compilers, Irish Dominican friar Thomas Connelly and Carmelite friar Thomas Higgins, achieved their Herculean effort through combining Johnson's Dictionary with Diccionario de Autoridades of the Spanish Academy. It is tempting to imagine that Pellew made use of this copy during his many years of conflict against the forces of Spain. Edward Pellew (1757-1833), celebrated British naval officer who saw service during the American Wars of Independence, French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. As the Captain of the HMS Nymphe, Pellew was responsible for the capture of the first French frigate of the American Revolutionary War at the action of 18th June 1793, and with it the signal codes of the enemy fleet. As the instigator of one of the most celebrated and significant victories of the British Navy during the late eighteenth-century, Pellew was knighted by King George III. By the following year he risen to the rank of Commodore of the Western Frigate Section, and taken command of the ship in which he was to secure numerous prizes and later be immortalised in fiction by C.S. Forester in the Hornblower novels; HMS Indefatigable. Promoted Rear-Admiral in 1804, he took command of the East Indies Section, and of the Mediterranean Fleet during 1811-14/1815-16. His final notable action was in 1816, when his successful bombardment of Algiers secured the freedom of 1,200 Christian slaves imprisoned by the Berbers, marked on 10th December by his creation as 1st Viscount Exmouth. .

Citons le début de la longue lettre du 18 août 1824. "Le 11 du courant, leurs majestés le Roi et la Reine de Sardaigne et la Duchesse de Chablais sont arrivés à Thonon entre 8 et 9 h du soir. 40 volontaires, sous l'uniforme brillant de lanciers polonais et bien montés, étaient allé à leur rencontre. Un arc de triomphe avait été dressé à l'entrée de la ville où elles ont été reçues et complimentées par les syndic et conseil, entourés de plusieurs groupes de jeunes dames et demoiselles en robe blanche et ceinture bleue, qui leur ont présenté des fleurs et chanté des couplets analogues à la circonstance. Une nombreuse garde urbaine formait la haie, le carillon des cloches, l'artillerie qu'on s'était procuré et 40 musiciens joints aux acclamations répétées de Vive le Roi, Vive la Reine, Vive la Duchesse de Chablais, par une population composée des syndics et des principaux habitants de la province et accrue par des Genevois, Vaudois et Valaisiens en grand nombre, donnaient à notre petite ville un ton très intéressant. Toutes les maisons décorées de nombre de drapeaux aux couleurs de Savoie, de guirlandes, de verdures et de fleurs autour des croisées, des guirlandes transversales auxquelles étaient suspendues des couronnes de divers genres, et principalement la Royale, toutes élégamment montées, des transparents ingénieux et nombre de devises exprimaient la joie publique ; l'illumination était générale, la fenêtre la plus étroite n'avait pas moins de 8 lampions, et quelques maisons en avaient plus de 600. Un concert et un brillant feu d'artifice ont fini la soirée. Le lendemain 12, les Augustes voyageurs en allant dîner à Evian escortés par les lanciers, se sont arrêtés à la fontaine d'Amphior où la Duchesse avait été boire les eaux pendant 3 ou 4 ans avant la Révolution [.]. De retour à Thonon, sur les 4 heures, leur M. et Al. ont vu des croisées de leur Palais dominant sur le lac, un simulacre de combat naval exécuté par 3 divers pavillons turcs et sardes, avec une nombreuse artillerie, les Turcs ayant été démâtés et une barque demi-incendiée se sont rendus prisonniers [.]. Le lendemain 13 au matin, il y a eu audience et salon [.]". Sont jointes 3 autres lettres. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        CONGRESSIONAL PUGILISTS [caption title]

      Philadelphia, 1798. Etching, 8 1/4 x 10 inches. Margins slightly trimmed, some spotting, two short closed marginal tears, contemporary ink chronology of the events leading to the fight. Overall very good. Mounted and framed. A famous cartoon depicting one of the most violent political episodes in the early history of the United States - the fight between Congressmen Matthew Lyon and Roger Griswold on the floor of the House of Representatives. The episode points out the roiling enmity between Jeffersonian Republicans and Federalists in the era of the Alien and Sedition Acts. The immediate cause of the brawl was a personal insult. Shortly after taking a vote on the impeachment of Senator William Blount, Matthew Lyon, a Republican Representative from Vermont, called into question the honor of Connecticut Federalists. Roger Griswold, a Connecticut Federalist, replied by recalling an incident in which Lyon had supposedly been forced to wear a wooden sword as a mark of cowardice while in the Continental Army. Lyon's response was to spit in Griswold's face, after which the Connecticut Federalist left the House chamber. Two weeks later, on Feb. 15, 1798, Griswold attacked Lyon with a hickory walking stick, at which point Lyon grabbed a pair of tongs from the fireplace in Congress Hall and defended himself. It is this scene that is depicted in the print, with Griswold swinging his walking stick and kicking at Lyon, and Lyon swinging back with the tongs while a throng in the chamber looks on excitedly. Three of the onlookers, House Speaker Jonathan Dayton and the Clerk and Chaplain of the House, are all identified by name in the edge of the print. Fowble notes that two different cartoons of the brawl between Lyon and Griswold were produced, the other entitled CUDGELING AS BY LATE ACT IN CONGRESS. The anonymous artist who created CONGRESSIONAL PUGILISTS so exaggerated the features of the onlookers that they needed to be identified at the edge of the image. Reilly, in his catalogue of American political prints in the Library of Congress, describes three different states of CONGRESSIONAL PUGILISTS. This copy conforms to the third state, with the address "S.E. Cor. 6th & Chesnut St." in the lower right corner and with the number "17" in the upper right. Of additional interest are the contemporary ink notations at bottom, being a timeline and related notes regarding Lyon and Griswold. The notes begin, "Jan. 1798 Matthew Lyon spat in Roger Griswold's face Feb. 15 Griswold assaults Lyon as above...." A great American political cartoon of the Federalist Era, showing the deep enmity involved in the nation's politics, even at an early date. WEITENKAMPF, p.12. FOWBLE 329. MURRELL, pp.43, 45.

        Le consul Ennio Quirino Visconti, objet d'une terrible cabale sous la République romaine.

      - 2 lettre autographe signée et manuscrit autographe 14 in-folio et in-4 22/09/1798 Datée du 1er vendémiaire an VII. Cachet et marque postaux sur l&#146;enveloppe. bon Dans cette lettre exceptionnelle tant par sa longueur (10 pp. in-folio) que pour son caractère historique, le consul Ennio Quirino Visconti, objet d'une terrible cabale sous la République romaine, se défend auprès du Citoyen Florens, commissaire du Directoire exécutif de la République française à Rome. Attaqué sur son honnêteté &#150; attaque menée en sous-main par Jean Bassal soupçonné de détourner l'argent public à Naples -, suspecté à tort de s'être fort enrichi grâce à l'immobilier, lâché par ses homologues du gouvernement, Visconti écrit aux Pères de la République romaine : Daunou, Monge et. Florens. Dans cette longue lettre, il revient sur les détails de l'affaire et dénonce l'intrigue menée par Bassal « qui voulait se débarrasser d'un obstacle à ses malversations, à ses vénalités, à ses corruptions de toute espèce [.] tout cela vous est bien connu. » Il mentionne également des personnalités importantes de Rome : les consuls Angelucci, Matthadis, Reppi et Parnazzi, Corona membre du Tribunat, ainsi que Pierelli, Rey et Callisti. On reprochait ainsi à Visconti de s'être enrichi grâce à l'immobilier ; lui évoque des achats « patriotiques », c'est-à-dire d'anciens immeubles de congrégations religieuses. Afin d'étayer son argumentation, il joint une note autographe (4 pp. in-4), intitulée État des acquisitions faites par Visconti depuis le 22 pluviôse an 6e jour de la révolution de Rome après la quelle époque il a été ministre de l'Intérieur provisoire et consul durant six mois : « Il a été si éloigné de cacher ces acquisitions qu'il en a fait déclarer tout de suite le véritable acquéreur par des actes publics. » On joint : deux numéros du Monitore di Roma (n° 60 et 62), attaquant Visconti et joints par ce dernier à sa lettre, ainsi que l'enveloppe autographe adressée au Citoyen Florens, ayant contenu l'ensemble de ces documents. Témoignage fondamental. Archéologue, l'un des cinq consuls de la République romaine de 1798. Face à l'avancée de l'Armée napolitaine sur Rome en 1799, il dut s'exiler en France et devint le premier conservateur des antiques et tableaux du Musée du Louvre. Il est membre de l'Académie des Beaux-Arts et des Inscriptions et des Belles-Lettres. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Chez H. Agasse, Paris:1798-99, Paris (1798-99) - SHORT TIME SALE - Volume III of Chirurgie, from the Encyclopedie Methodique, quarto (9 1/2" X 12 3/4") includes half-title and printed title-page with one-hundred thirteen extraordinary engravings detailing 18th century surgery techniques, various methods of caring for an injury, the birthing process and the human body and numerous plates illustrating the instruments used, etc., Contemporary boards with printed paper label on spine, edges uncut, boards worn, spine repaired, a few plates slightly waterstained on lower right corner. The first volumes of the Encyclopedie Methodique appeared in 1782-1792 comprised of 166 volumes of text and fifty-one parts of plates. The idea originated with the publisher, Pankoucke (Charle-Joseph, q.v.) who took the opportunity fr om the success of Diderot's Encyclopedie to publish a "super-encyclopedia" taking large portions from Diderot's Encyclopedie with his permission. Each volume formed distinct dictionaries made up of various subjects and were entrusted to different e ditiors. The Chirurgie first appeared 1790-92 as a two volume set, which included four parts and was illustrated with one-hundred eleven plates, this edition with two more plates, very little is known of the editors of the Chirurgie, Daniel Delaroch e (1743-1813) and Philippe petit-Radel (1749-1815) other than that they colloborated on what was considered a most unmanageable undertaking. A wonderful work. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Die Lyrikerin und Reiseschriftstellerin F. Brun (1765-1835) war mit einem dänischen Konsul verheiratet und lernte 1791 auf ihren Reisen Matthisson kennen, der ihr Talent förderte. 1795 traf sie in Karlsbad Goethe, dessen Gedicht "Nähe des Geliebten" eine Kontrafaktur des hier enthaltenen "Ich denke dein" von F. Brun darstellt, die unmittelbar durch Zelters Vertonung angeregt wurde. Bruns Gedichte stehen zunächst stark unter dem Eindruck Klopstocks und des empfindsamen Klassizismus Matthissons und feiern besonders die Schweizer Natur. Die hier vorliegende vermehrte Auflage von Bruns "Gedichten" erschien ohne die 7 Musikbeilagen der ersten Auflage von 1795. Der Vorderdeckel innen mit montiertem, weiblichen Scherenschnitt-Porträt. Unser Exemplar leider ohne das Titelkupfer zum ersten Band und mit stärker beriebenem Einband. Trotz dieser Gebrauchsspuren handelt es sich um ein insgesamt noch ordentliches Exemplar der vermehrten Auflage mit dem sehr seltenen - und Goedeke unbekannt gebliebenem - zweiten Band.

        An Inquiry into the Causes and Effects of the Variolae Vaccinae, A disease discovered in some of the western counties of England, particularly Gloucestershire, and known by the name of the Cow Pox.

      London:: Printed for the author by Sampson Low, 1798., 1798. 4to. iv, 75 pp. 4 plates printed in red and finished by hand, the first plate drawn and engraved by William Skelton, the other three plates by Skelton after Edward Pearce; lacks half-title (as usual), light foxing. Later nineteenth-century style full gilt-stamped straight-grained morocco, new black morocco gilt labels. New quarter maroon morocco drop-back box, spine labels. Fine. RARE. FIRST EDITION. As a country doctor, Jenner found that farmers and dairymaids who had developed sores as a result of infection with cowpox seemed to be immune to smallpox. He postulated that the prior exposure to cowpox and subsequent immunity to both diseases indicated that the two diseases were related. In order to test his hypothesis, Jenner used matter from the pustule of a dairymaid's cowpox sore (Case XVI) to inoculate a small boy (Case XVII) and induce cowpox artificially. To test his theory of immunization, Jenner later infected the same boy with variolous (smallpox) matter. When the boy didn't develop smallpox, Jenner's theory was proven by challenge, a test which would be considered highly dangerous today. ?Jenner was the first to test experimentally the folk belief that cowpox conferred immunity to its deadly relative smallpox, and the first to transmit the cowpox virus from person to person in order to build a population immune to smallpox. 'His confidence was vindicated at last when the World Health Organization announced in 1980 that small pox had been eradicated from all countries by intensive vaccination campaigns' [LeFanu], making it the first disease to be eliminated by man. Jenner's use of the tern 'virus' to describe the pathogenic exudates from cowpox and smallpox pustules was a first step toward further specialization of the word. He was also the first to describe anaphylaxis, thus providing a foundation for the study of allergy.? [Norman]. ?Jenner established the fact that a 'vaccination' or inoculation with vaccinia (cowpox) lymph matter protects against smallpox... The above work, describing 23 successful vaccinations, announced to the world one of the greatest triumphs in the history of medicine. Jennerian vaccination soon superseded the protective inoculation of material from human cases of smallpox, which had previously been in vogue.? [Garrison & Morton].

Es basiert auf einem vor der Naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Jena gehaltenen Vortrag über Humboldts elektrophysiologische Versuche und enthält wichtige Beiträge zur Reizphysiologie. "Das Buch ist die umfassendste und deutlichste Referenz für Ritters wissenschaftliches Arbeiten und naturphilosophisches Denken" (Richter, J.W. Ritter). Seine Experimente führen Ritter zu der Vermutung, dass Galvanismus und Elektrizität auf chemischen Ursachen beruhen.

        Catalogue of Stars, taken from Mr. Flamsteed's Observations contained in the Second Volume of the Historia Coelestis, and not inserted in the British Catalogue. With an Index, to point out Every Observation in that Volume belonging to the Stars of the British Catalogue. To which is added, a Collection of Errata that should be noticed in the Same Volume&hellip;with Introductory and Explanatory Remarks to Each of Them. By William Herschel&hellip;published by Order, and at the Expence, of the Royal Society

      One engraved plate. 136 pp., one leaf of errata. Folio, cont. grey boards (carefully rebacked & recornered by Trevor Lloyd), spine gilt. London: P. Elmsly, 1798. First edition of this important star catalogue which served as a supplement to Flamsteed's Historiae Coelestis Britannicae (1725) and thus remained an essential tool for astronomers for many years. This is a fine copy from the Royal Society of Edinburgh with their discrete stamp and equally discrete ownership inscription on title. Caroline Herschel (1750-1848), the younger sister of William, was his essential assistant in astronomical work for half a century. Independently, she became a major astronomer, discovering three new nebulae and no fewer than eight comets. "Caroline was an indispensable member of a most remarkable team that, in one of the greatest campaigns known to observational astronomy, swept the whole of the visible sky. In twenty years of unremitting toil, brother and sister increased the number of known nebulae from about a hundred to 2500."-ODNB. "In 1782 William gave up music for astronomy and moved to the neighborhood of Windsor Castle; Caroline accompanied him, thereby ending her musical career. William now encouraged Caroline to 'sweep' for comets on her own account; and in 1783, while doing this she found three new nebulae, including the companion to the Andromeda nebula. But soon William was himself committed to sweeping for nebulae, and at night Caroline was often required to be on hand to write down his observations. In the daytime, besides managing the household and entertaining visitors, she carried out the extensive routine calculations, prepared catalogs and papers for publication, and even ground and polished mirrors&hellip;Between 1786 and 1797 she discovered no fewer than eight comets, thus earning a reputation as an astronomer in her own right; and in 1798 her revision of Flamsteed's catalog of stars was published by the Royal Society."-D.S.B., VI, pp. 322-23. "The standard catalogue of stars was the British Catalogue of John Flamsteed, published in 1725. William had found his work increasingly hampered by errors in the catalogue, and in 1796 he persuaded Caroline to assemble a list of these errors, a task that took her twenty months. Her list, with an index to Flamsteed's observations, was published by the Royal Society in 1798."-ODNB. Fine copy and quite scarce on the market.
