        LES JARDINS, POËME .

      Paris 1801 - xxxi,[1],166pp. Large octavo. Contemporary calf, spine gilt extra, gilt label, marbled edges. Frontis. Extremities and fore-tips a bit worn, some surface scarring and small nicks to lower board, large bookplate on front pastedown, a few minor marginal smudges, otherwise a very good copy, the text bright, crisp and fresh. Denoted a New Edition, considerably augmented. The fine engraved frontis is by Choffard after Monciau. Delille's most popular work of original poetry, first published in a preliminary form in 1782. The author's notes for the poem occupy the last forty pages of the text. Delille was an accomplished translator, notably of Virgil and Milton. His descriptive poem on the formal garden was popular as well in England, encompassing as it does descriptions of several of distinguished gardens across the channel, and this expanded text saw London printings almost immediately, and a number of deluxe/illustrated editions in the following decades. Brunet notes this edition adds 1100 lines to the poem. BRUNET II:576. VICAIRE III:122.

        Notes on the State of Virginia ... first hot-pressed edition

      Philadelphia: R. T. Rawle, 1801. 8vo. [4],436,[1], 56pp. [with errors in pagination, as issued]. Stipple engraved portrait frontispiece, three maps (one folding), folding plate and folding table. Expertly bound to style in period tree sheep, flat spine divided into compartments with gilt roll tool, red morocco lettering pieceEarly American edition of Jefferson's famous workThis is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime, and has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." It was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785, then published in English in London in 1787. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. As J.M. Edelstein notes: "Jefferson wrote about things which interested him deeply and about which he knew a great deal; the Notes , therefore, throws a fascinating light on his tastes, curiosities, and political and social opinions." The story of the creation of this book and its publishing history is an interesting one. It is told fully by Millicent Sowerby in her catalogue of Jefferson's library.The present 1801 Philadelphia edition printed by Rawle is one of the most handsome American editions of Jefferson, and the first issued after his election to the presidency. The portrait, pictured and described in Cunningham's The Image of Thomas Jefferson in the Public Eye., was engraved by William Harrison, Jr., after a print by Mathew Carey. It is one of the relatively few engraved images of Jefferson. This edition adds Jefferson's famous first inaugural address ("we are all Republicans, we are all Federalists"). Furthermore, an appendix adds his correspondence relating to the Logan massacre, a horrific frontier tale of the murder of a friendly Indian family in southwest Virginia during Lord Dunmore's War in 1774.Howes J78; Sabin 35898; Clark I:262; Sowerby, Jefferson's Library 4167; Adams, The Eye of Thomas Jefferson p. 51.

      Artaria e Comp. [PN] 872, Vienna 1801 - Oblong folio. Early blue wrappers. 1f. (title), ii (blank), 2-56 pp. Engraved. Printed price: "3 fr. 30," corrected in ink in "4 fr/20." Early owner's signature to upper wrapper in ink: "Wilhelmine Maurer." Two leaves trimmed at lower margin with very slight loss to printed area.A very good copy overall. First Edition. The full score was not published until 1864. Kinsky p. 102-04. Hoboken 2, 215 and plate 8. First performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on March 28, 1801 to a libretto by the noted Italian choreographer and dancer Salvatore Viganò (1769-1821)."The second half of 1800 was outwardly uneventful; it doubtless saw the final revision of the op.18 string quartets, and the writing of the B? Piano Sonata (op. 22) and of the A minor and F major violin sonatas (opp. 23, 24). There wasless inducement to prepare new works for a possible concert in the following spring, since he had received an important commission for the court stage: he was to write the music for a ballet designed by the celebrated ballet-master Salvatore Viganò, Die Geschöpfe des Prometheus (op.43). This was given its first performance at the Burgtheater on 28 March 1801 and was successful enough to be repeated more than 20 times. Only a sketch of the scenario survives. In the finale Beethoven used a melody that evidently came to assume a certain emotional importance for him, perhaps even embodying something of his spirit of determination and heroism in battling against difficulties, for he used it again as the theme for two important and challenging sets of variations completed in 1802 and 1803: the op. 35 piano variations and the variation-finale of the 'Eroica' Symphony."

Una grande mappa pieghevole della parte Septentrional degli Stati Uniti. metà velina periodo obbligatorio in piccoli angoli. Giansenista colonna vertebrale liscia. Titolo parti della pelle di pecora arancione rosso. numero del volume etichette code. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale illustrée de 11 planches et 4 tableaux dont 7 dépliantes, avec une grande carte dépliante de la partie septentrionnale des Etats-Unis, une autre de la partie méridionale, plusieurs planches de la cataracte du Niagara, un guerrier de la nation Oneida, un portrait de Washington en médaillon... Epitre à Georges Washington. Reliure en demi velin d'époque à petits coins. Dos lisse janséniste. Pièces de titre de basane rouge orangée. Etiquettes de tomaison en queues. Légère trace de mouillure au coin gauche en marge du faux titre et du frontispice du tome I. Plats frottés. Bel exemplaire, ensemble bien frais. Bien que l'avant propos du traducteur raconte la découverte d'un manuscrit issu d'un naufrage, l'auteur est bien Michel Crevecoeur, qui a certainement usé de ce subterfuge littéraire pour prévenir les possibles attaques contre son livre et accroître la véracité de son récit de voyage. Il ne s'agit donc pas d'une traduction mais bien d'une oeuvre originale, qui peut être regardée comme la suite des Lettres d'un cultivateur. L'ouvrage contient d'innombrables descriptions des Indiens, de leur mode de vie, des différentes tribues. Aucun livre par ailleurs ne contient autant de renseignements et d'informations véritables sur les Indiens. Les notes, très nombreuses, renseignent utilement sur la faune et la flore, l'histoire politique, la ville de New-York, les ressources et la géographie, et l'ensemble constitue un des plus riches témoignages sur l'histoire des Etats-Unis. Par ailleurs le récit rapporte par différents témoignages l'histoire d'autres états comme le Delaware, l'Ohio, la Floride... Installé aux Etats-Unis en 1754, Michel Crevecoeur fonda un établissement agricole (dont les Lettres d'un cultivateur dressent l'histoire) qui fut saccagé par les Anglais lors de la guerre d'indépendance. Crevecoeur se vit arrêté, puis enfin libéré revint en France pour retourner au USA en 1783. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

        Lectures on the Elements of Commerce, Politics, and Finances;

      London: Printed by A. Strahan for T. N. Longman and O. Rees,, 1801. intended as a companion to Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England; and peculiarly calculated to qualify young noblemen and gentlemen for situations in any of the public offices under government, and for parliamentary business. Octavo (225 x 141 mm). Original drab yellow paper spine, blue paper sides, paper spine label, uncut. Front joint cracked and a little tender, a few nicks and chips to spine, paper creased or awkwardly folded in places (during production). An excellent copy, tall, clean and crisp. First octavo edition, originally published in quarto as The Elements of Commerce, Politics and Finances (London 1772). Thomas Mortimer (1730–1810) was a prolific writer on trade and finance, perhaps best known for Every Man His Own Broker: or a Guide to the Stock Exchange (1761). In his introduction to the present edition, Mortimer notes that the idea for "a cheaper edition, and a new form of compiling it, [was] suggested by some respectable gentlemen of the University of Oxford, to whom the author paid a visit in the year 1798, as likely to be more useful to young students". The subscriber's list runs to around 170 names, headed by the Marquis of Lansdowne, and includes Sir William Hamilton, Lord Nelson, and John Horne Tooke. Scarce: Copac cites copies at seven British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Chetham's Library, Glasgow, LSE, Scotland, Edinburgh, Senate House); well-represented in OCLC but most uncommon in commerce.

January 6th. 1798', and p. 83 subscribed by John Bruce ('I have the Honour to be' &c, &c) and with the direction to Henry Dundas, [and:] Le Mesurier (Havilland) The British Commissary, in two parts. Part I. A system for the British Commissariat on foreign service. Part II. An Essay towards ascertaining the use and duties of a Commissariat staff in England. Printed for T. Egerton, 1798, pp. [ii, blank], ix, 177 (including folding tables), contemporary half calf, rebacked. 'Dundas continued to employ Bruce to lend academic weight to his pragmatic policies, noting that the professor's sole joy was to be "buried in old records". The duties were formalized in an official position as historiographer to the East India Company in 1793. It had been clinched by Bruce's Historical View of Plans for the Government of British India (1793), fruit of three years' research exploring options for the imminent renewal of the company's charter. Despite its pernickety style, it sufficiently softened up public opinion for a plan which Dundas wished to air without taking personal responsibility, the creation for himself of a post of president of the Board of Control for India, served by a permanent staff. In 1796 Bruce produced a historical review of the balance of power in Europe. In 1798 his report on defence guided measures to meet the French threat. Bruce was to write a similar report on the requirements of the circumstances created by the uneasy peace of Amiens in 1801. A report published in 1799 dealt with the Anglo-Scottish union, as a precedent for the projected Irish union' (ODNB). (2. ESTC T222116, Rylands only; 3.

        Wie Gertrud ihre Kinder lehrt

      Heinrich Gessner, Bern-Zürich 1801 - Bern-Zürich, Heinrich Geßner, 1801. Erstausgabe. - ¿[.] 1798 eröffnete Pestalozzi zum zweiten mal ein Waisenhaus; in Stans. Hier versammelte er achtzig Zöglinge, von denen er einige für den Lehrberuf an Elementarschulen ausbildete. Im Jahr darauf wurde er an die Volksschule Burgdorf berufen, wo er das obengenannte Buch schrieb. Der Titel ist irreführend, denn in den Briefen, die den Inhalt des Buches ausmachen, ist mehr von den Ergebnissen als von der Methode des Lehrens die Rede, und Gertrud selbst erscheint gar nicht. Trotzdem ist es eine erschöpfende Darlegung der pädagogischen Grundsätze Pestalozzis und legt besonderes Gewicht auf die drei ¿Elementa': Lesen, Schreiben, Rechnen. Die wichtigste und zukunftsträchtigste seiner Ideen, auf die er in seiner Praxis wie in seiner Lehre größten Nachdruck legte, war die Erkenntnis, dass die wahre Erziehungsmethode in der Ausbildung eines Kindes und nicht, wie bei einem Hund, in der Abrichtung liege. Der Zögling müsse für wichtiger erachtet werden als der Erwachsene, und es käme darauf an, ihn zum ¿ganzen Menschen' zu entwickeln" (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 476f.). - Einband etw. berieben u. bestoßen. Bezug an den Kapitalen m. kl. Fehlstellen. Namenszüge a. Vorsatz- u. Titelblatt.

Provenance: Iain Crompton (signature and bibliographical note on second free endpaper); Michael Sharpe (bookplate to front pastedown); Galloway & Porter, Cambridge (sticker to front pastedown). A very good and wide-margined copy. ---- PMM 257; Dibner Heralds of Science 114; Grolier/Horblit 38; Norman 878; DSB IV, p.299f. FIRST EDITION of the work which revolutionised number theory, and established the twenty-four year old Gauss as a mathematical genius. The son of a bricklayer, he had actually discovered the theory of quadratic reciprocity, which both Euler and Legendre had failed to prove, at no more than 18 years of age. He also described the discovery of a method of inscribing in a circle a regular polygon of seventeen sides - the first discovery of this kind in Euclidean geometry for over two thousand years. The new mathematics so confused the typesetters that, in addition to the lengthy 4-page errata, the worst mistakes in the book were corrected by cancel leaves. In our copy leaves B7, G4, K3, Ff7, and Tt6 are cancels; none are bound in in their uncancelled form (see Norman 878). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        Thermolampes ou poêles qui chauffent; éclairent avec économie, et offrent, avec plusierus produits précieux, une force motrice applicable à toutes espèce de machines; inventés par Philippe Lebon, ingénieur des Ponts et Chaussées

      Charles Pougens, Paris 1801 - Cartonnage moderne Un volume in quarto (240x193 mm), (4)-12 pages Philippe Lebon, Lebon major de l'École d'Ingénieurs des Ponts et Chaussées de Paris est l'inventeur du gaz d'éclairage et du moteur à explosion. Concernant l'éclairage au gaz, c'est en 1799 qu'il dépose le brevet de sa thermolampe qui va révolutionner l'éclairage urbain. Sa méthode permet d'isoler un gaz inflammable qui peut être porté à distance pour éclairer et chauffer. Il installe pour la première fois ce système dans l'hôtel de Seigneley à Paris le 11 octobre 1801. Il dépose son brevet sur les moteurs à explosion en 1801. Hélas, Lebon qui décède prématurément en 1804 n'a pas eu le temps de développer son projet et ce n'est qu'en 1860 que Jean–Joseph–Etienne Lenoir réalisera le premier moteur à explosion. Dans cette plaquette fort rare publiée en août 1801, Philippe Lebon expose les principes de sa thermolampe et des développement possibles pour un moteur à explosion. Il se propose de réaliser des démonstrations publiques de ses inventions et lance une souscription pour pouvoir les industrialiser. C'est sans doute à l'occasion de ces démonstrations - qui rencontrèrent un certain succès - qu'il équipa l'hôtel de Seigneley. ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Hardcover 4to (240x193 mm), (4)-12 pages Philippe le Bon is the inventor of gas lighting and combustion engine, for which he placed patents in 1799 and 1801 In this rare booklet he explains these new concepts and he proposes to carry out public demonstrations of his inventions and launched a subscription in order to industrialize them. The Hôtel Seigneley was equiped two month later with his Thermolamp for Gas lightling and heating. Lebon died prematurely in 1804 has not had the time to develop his combustion engine and we have to wait more than 50 years until Jean Joseph Etienne Lenoir realize the first combustion engine.

        A New Illustration of the Sexual System of Linnaeus by . Thornton [The Genera of Exotic and Indigenous Plants that are to be met with in Great Britain; arranged according to the reformed system, by . Thornton]

      published by Dr. Thornton, London 1801 - (18 5/8 x 12 7/8 inches). Engraved title to each part, engraved allegorical frontispiece titled Cupid, Flora, Ceres and Esculapius Honouring the Bust of Linnaeus, engraved portrait frontispiece of Queen Charlotte, engraved allegorical plate titled Cupid Inspiring Plants with Love, 16 engraved portraits of botanists on 14 sheets, 43 engraved plates on 42 leaves (including 34 botanical illustrations and 9 engraved pages of text or tables), all uncoloured. (Some spotting and browning, numerous blindstamps, 2 botanical plates shaved into the image area). Later half calf over textured cloth-covered boards (upper joint split) Provenance: Chetham Library, Manchester, England (blindstamps) An extraordinary offshoot of Thornton's larger work of the same name With this work, an offshoot of his larger masterpiece of the same title, Thornton attempted to explain Linnaean botany, as well as expound upon his own botanical theories. The work celebrates great contemporary and historical botanists and their supporters and also includes plates of many cross-sections of plant stems. The logic of the work is elusive, but what is undeniable is that, like its larger cousin, the present work includes some very charming plates, particularly the allegorical ones and the intriguing image of the dragon arum. The chaotic publication of Thornton's masterpiece, the seeminglly haphazard order in which plates, text, tables were published, and the work's final ignominious fate as prizes in a lottery draw have all meant that there is no definitive bibliographical description for either the large-scale work or the present somewhat smaller offshoot.
