         Mémoire ou Coup-d'oeil rapide sur mes différens voyages et mon séjour dans la nation Crëck.

      Paris, Imprimerie de Giguet et Michaud, an XI - 1802, - in-8, [2] ff. n. ch., 332 pp., broché sous couverture d'attente de papier bleu.Qqs rousseurs. Edition originale de cet ouvrage aussi rare que curieux : Jean-Antoine Leclerc dit de Milfort (1752-1821), engagé volontaire à douze ans comme enfant de troupe, émigra en 1775 en Amérique du Nord, sans doute pour échapper aux conséquences d'un duel. Là, il réussit à s'introduire en 1776 au sein de la nation indienne des Creeks (Alabama actuel), apprenant leur langue, adoptant leurs coutumes, et intégré parmi leurs guerriers. C'est à ce titre qu'il intervint dans la Guerre d'indépendance, louvoyant entre Anglais, colons et Espagnols. Revenu en France sous le Directoire, qui le promut général de brigade en 1796, il essaya vainement de faire valoir ses vues sur la constitution d'un domaine colonial français en Louisiane tant sous le Directoire que sous le Consulat : l'ouvrage publié en 1802 avait pour but de convaincre Bonaparte des possibilités offertes par ces vastes territoires et les populations amérindiennes ralliables à la cause française. La vente de la Louisiane en 1803 mit un terme à ses espoirs. Sabin 48 949. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

In 1801, the then Secretary to the Hospital, Mr. Coggan, was replaced - 'Although the Secretary to the Hospital, Mr. Coggan, who followed Mr. Wm. Chapple, wrote extraordinarily well, it appears that his accounts and books were not so well kept as could have been wished, and on November 12th [1801]when he sent in his resignation it was accepted at once.' Certainly, the ms. additions to this ledger are in a very fine and legible hand and a note at the end states - 'For the subsequent Quarterly accounts - They will be found in the Secretary's Cupboard In a Bundle - J. H. 28 October 1828 -'.

No place of publication. 嘉慶壬戍 1802. 淸文彚書 or The Complete Collection of the Manchurian Language, is a very comprehensive dictionary of considerable historical importance to Manchu development in Qing Dynasty. The dictionary was composed in 1751 by Qing scholar Li Yanji on the basis of 御制清文鉴 [The Imperial Dictionary of Manchurian Language] and was published by at least three different publishers in Beijing - 三槐堂 [San huai tang], 四合堂 [Si he tang] and 英华堂 [Ying hua tang]. This set was published by 三槐堂 [San huai tang]. It is unclear whether these editions were published simultaneously or whether reprints were published around the same time.The dictionary was published with the aim of supporting the "Language Standardisation" policy set up under the government of Qianlong Emperor. It lists the Manchu words in alphabetical order each with its Chinese translation. It was one of the first comprehensive and user-friendly Manchu-Chinese dictionaries and many dictionaries in late Qing Dynasty developed from it. It should be noted that the place of publication of this set 京都[Jingdu] is an old name for Beijing and not, as it could be easily be confused with, Kyoto.The accompanying eight volume Supplement was published with the aim of solving issues of the ambiguities which appeared in 淸文彚書 [The Complete Collection of the Manchurian Language], for example, loanwords transliterated from Chinese, etc. 宜興 [Yixing] (? - 1809) a member of the royal family of Qing Empire, accumulated over 7900 new words and compiled 淸文补彚 [The Supplements to the Manchurian Language] in 1786. These new words which appeared after the standardisation of the Manchurian language are presented in the same format and style as the earlier dictionary however the Supplement distinguishes itself from earlier works by adding any structural changes of words such as variants.Together these two works comprise a very important reference of 27,900 words or phrases and together are regarded as among the most important Chinese-Manchu reference works of the Qing Dynasty. Still very useful for scholars of Manchu to this day and certainly regarded as indispensable for scholars of the Manchurian language during the Qing Dynasty.

      , February 13, 1802. February 13, 1802. The February 13, 1802 edition of The Tree of Liberty (Pittsburgh: Printed and Published by John Israel) four pages, 10.75" x 17.25", together with a two page "Extra", 8.25" x 11.25". Some marginal tears and chips not affecting text, light dampstain and creases.Philadelphia-born printer John Israel established The Tree of Liberty in August 1800 on the eve of the historic election of 1800 between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Israel, an ardent Jeffersonian Republican, had moved to western Pennsylvania in 1798 where he founded the Herald of Liberty in Washington, Pennsylvania. In 1800 a group of Western Pennsylvania Republicans including Hugh Henry Brackenridge and Albert Gallatin, requested Israel set up his press in Pittsburgh to counter the town's decidedly Federalist organ, John Scull's Gazette. Little is known about Israel's family background, but he is believed to have been Jewish and most likely offspring of the prominent Israel family of Philadelphia (it appears from the frequent anti-Semitic attacks made upon Israel in the Gazette that at least his opponents considered him Jewish). Israel was not only a pro-Jefferson newspaper editor, he was also a successful political organizer and party leader instrumental in organizing Republican electoral victories over the Federalists. In 1802, Jefferson rewarded Israel for his efforts with the lucrative contract to print federal legislation and other official notices in Pittsburgh, stripping the Federalist Gazette of a steady cash flow. Soon afterwards, the State of Pennsylvania, now under the leadership of Republican Thomas McKean, awarded Israel the contract to print state laws. Israel continued to publish the Tree until December 1805 when he sold the paper and moved south to Washington County. He died the following year from blood poisoning, just before his thirtieth birthday.*Israel is rewarded for his loyalty and authorized to print federal proceedings "By Authority". The Tree, Jefferson's political mouthpiece in western Pennsylvania, is awarded the lucrative contract to print federal legislation and proceeding for Pittsburgh by the new administration. From this issue onward, Israel would print the legislation and proceedings of Congress with the heading "PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY. The first piece of legislation Israel printed was, interestingly enough, the act reapportioning congressional seats after the second federal census â€

Piatti marmorizzati. Tagli a spruzzo azzurri. Ottimo stato. Quarta edizione veneziana di questa monumentale opera medica di Giovanni Battista Borsieri (Civezzano, Trento, 1725-Milano, 1785), allora onorata da larga fortuna e tempestivamente tradotta in italiano, inglese e tedesco. L'opera, enciclopedica nell'impostazione, tratta in prevalenza delle febbri, dei morbi esantematici, delle malattie cerebrali, nervose, cardiache e gastro-intestinali. Il Borsieri, allievo a Padova del Morgagni e del Vallisnieri, ma laureatosi in medicina a Bologna, compì il perfezionamento a Firenze. Chiamato a Faenza per collaborare con le autorità locali nel tentativo di debellare un'epidemia di febbri gastriche che infieriva da tempo in quella città, nel 1770 fu invitato dal ministro Firmian ad insegnare medicina pratica all'Università di Pavia, dove rimase dieci anni e di cui fu nominato anche rettore. L'arciduca Ferdinando d'Asburgo, governatore della Lombardia, lo volle a Milano come proprio medico personale, servizio che occupò fino alla morte. Cfr. (varie edizioni): Wellcome, II, 206.

         Newspapers

      February 13, 1802. The February 13, 1802 edition of The Tree of Liberty (Pittsburgh: Printed and Published by John Israel) four pages, 10.75" x 17.25", together with a two page "Extra", 8.25" x 11.25". Some marginal tears and chips not affecting text, light dampstain and creases.

Philadelphia-born printer John Israel established The Tree of Liberty in August 1800 on the eve of the historic election of 1800 between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Israel, an ardent Jeffersonian Republican, had moved to western Pennsylvania in 1798 where he founded the Herald of Liberty in Washington, Pennsylvania. In 1800 a group of Western Pennsylvania Republicans including Hugh Henry Brackenridge and Albert Gallatin, requested Israel set up his press in Pittsburgh to counter the town's decidedly Federalist organ, John Scull's Gazette. Little is known about Israel's family background, but he is believed to have been Jewish and most likely offspring of the prominent Israel family of Philadelphia (it appears from the frequent anti-Semitic attacks made upon Israel in the Gazette that at least his opponents considered him Jewish). Israel was not only a pro-Jefferson newspaper editor, he was also a successful political organizer and party leader instrumental in organizing Republican electoral victories over the Federalists. In 1802, Jefferson rewarded Israel for his efforts with the lucrative contract to print federal legislation and other official notices in Pittsburgh, stripping the Federalist Gazette of a steady cash flow. Soon afterwards, the State of Pennsylvania, now under the leadership of Republican Thomas McKean, awarded Israel the contract to print state laws. Israel continued to publish the Tree until December 1805 when he sold the paper and moved south to Washington County. He died the following year from blood poisoning, just before his thirtieth birthday.*

Israel is rewarded for his loyalty and authorized to print federal proceedings "By Authority". The Tree, Jefferson's political mouthpiece in western Pennsylvania, is awarded the lucrative contract to print federal legislation and proceeding for Pittsburgh by the new administration. From this issue onward, Israel would print the legislation and proceedings of Congress with the heading "PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY. The first piece of legislation Israel printed was, interestingly enough, the act reapportioning congressional seats after the second federal census – one of Jefferson's favorite projects:

"SEVENTH CONGRESS of the UNITED STATES, at the first session, Begun and held at the city of Wilmington, in the Territory of Columbia, on Monday, the Seventh of December, one thousand eight hundred and one, AN ACT for the appointment of Representatives among the several States, according to the second enumeration. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives, in the United States of America, in Congress assembled, That from and after the third day of March, one thousand eight hundred and three, the House of Representatives shall be composed of members elected agreeably to a ratio of one member to every thirty three thousand persons in each State, computed according to the rule prescribed by the Constitution, that is to say: Within the State of New Hampshire, five; within the State of Massachusetts, seventeen; within the State of Vermont, four; within the State of Rhode Island, two; within the State of Connecticut, seven; within the State of New York, seventeen; within the State of New Jersey, six; within the State of Pennsylvania, eighteen; within the State of Delaware, one; within the State of Maryland, nine; within the State of Virginia, twenty two; within the State of North Carolina, twelve; within the State of South Carolina, eight; within the State of Georgia, four; within the State of Kentucky, six; and within the State of Tennessee, three members. NATHANIEL MACON, Speaker of the House of Representatives. ABRAHAM BALDWIN, President of the Senate pro temp ore. Approved Jan. 14, 1802. TH: JEFFERSON, President of the United States."

The balance of the front page is dedicated to proceedings in the House of Representatives including a mention of a "..bill addressing fugitives [slaves] from justice and persons escaping from the service of their masters, &c." The bill was defeated 46-44. "Mr. Fearing" proposed to divide the Northwest Territory into "three governments, the western, middle and eastern". The house considered a "bill for protecting our Mediterranean trade against Tripolitan cruisers" which would authorize the "president to equip the national vessels against Tripolitan corsairs – to seize and capture Tripolitan vessels – and to authorise [sic] their capture by private American vessels."

The second page includes the usual snippets of news from near and far as well as local advertisements as well as politics. Taunting the Federalists who had been roundly defeated at the polls in 1800, Israel crowed: "From the late conduct of the ex federalists not only in this place, but throughout the state, it appears that an attempt will be made to rally their disjoined forces previous to the next election, and to raise at least the appearance of opposition…" The issue also features an extract from a letter chronicling a slave rebellion in Guadalupe, December 14, 1801: "I am afraid we shall be glad to make our escape with our lives before many days. The negroes have made two attempts to rise; the first was in Bassaterre, about the first of this month, but without any success – they only stabbed four men in the town, and did some mischief in the country; the second was in this place on the night of the 10th inst. and they also were dispersed, and their ring-leaders made prisoners. -- Last night the negroes began their riot in the market place again, which greatly alarmed the people. The whites were running with their wives and children from every direction, begging of us to take them on board of our vessels... A flag of truce which had been sent to Domingo, had returned yesterday with a very unfavorable answer; the words were, No, we will treat with no negroes or mulatoes, neither shall they hold any office; but we will be there in a few days with a fleet of men of war and transports and will shew you your places."

An historic issue of a key Jeffersonian newspaper in the trans-Appalachian west.

*Carl E. Prince "John Israel: Printer and Politician on the Pennsylvania Frontier, 1798 - 1805" Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, (January 1967), 46-55. As to Israel's Judaism, Prince notes in a footnote: "Biographic data cited below indicates clearly that Israel was generally thought of by the pubic as being Jewish. His own identification in his connection, however, has never been clearly established; ambivalent evidence exists. On a few occasions Israel referred himself as a Jew. On the other hand, he was married by a Protestant minister. What is important for the purposes of this article is that most western Pennsylvanians identified him as Jewish."; Pages 48 notes , 55.

         The Divina Commedia of Dante Alighieri

      T. Cadell Jun. and W Davies 1802 - T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies, in the Strand, London, 1802. Three volumes. Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) was a major Italian poet. He has been called the father of the Italian language and is one of the most admired and influential poets ever. His book, The Divina Commedia, is a masterpiece of world literature and is considered by many to be the greatest poem of the Middle Ages. The Divina Commedia describes Dante’s journey through Hell (Inferno), Purgatory (Purgatorio) and Paradise (Paradiso). The work was translated into many European languages well before it was translated into English. The lack of English translations was due in part to Dante’s Catholic views thought to be of little interest to Protestant English audiences. The first complete translation of the Divina Commedia, this set, was first published in 1802. The translator was the Rev. Henry Boyd. Boyd was most likely educated at Trinity College, Dublin. At the time the book was published, the Rev. Boyd was the vicar of Rathfryland, County Down, Northern Ireland. He was also chaplain to the Right Honourable Charles William, Lord Viscount Charleville, to whom this work was dedicated. The books are bound in contemporary mottled leather that has started to flake. The front cover hinges show some cracking at the bottom but are still very sound. The books are nice and square and are very solidly bound and unrestored. The lower book label on the spine of volume III is missing. It would read “Vol. III” on two lines. Marbled endpapers with two previous owners bookplates. The volumes are collated 100% correct. The page sizes are 208 x 128mm. Vol I frontispiece portrait of Dante, title page, dedication iii to vi + 408 pp; Vol II half title, title page + 384pp; Vol III half title, title page + 420pp. There are very minor traces of damp staining and foxing here and there. Overall a very sound and attractive copy of a truly rare seminal work in world literature. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Illustrations of the Huttonian Theory of the Earth. [First edition].

      Printed for Cadell and Davies, London, and William Creech, Edinburgh 1802 - Edinburgh, octavo, xx, 528 p. ***CONTENT: In 1788, in a preliminary paper, and in 1795, elaborated in book form, Scotsman James Hutton presented his perceptive hypothesis about the vast length of geologic time and his conclusion that geologic processes have always operated at roughly the same rate as they do today. These concepts, later named "uniformitarianism", are foundational ideas of modern geology. Unfortunately, the general public had little exposure to Hutton's works, and his writing style was awkward and overly preoccupied with natural theology. Following the death of his friend Hutton, John Playfair (1748-1819) prepared this treatise, clarifying and amplifying Hutton's writings using direct, elegant language and a simplicity of style. He added further 'illustrations' based on his personal observations. In large part because of this volume, Hutton's theories became popularized; he is now regarded as the 'father of modern geology'. Challinor calls this work "a masterpiece of geological literature". ***CONDITION: This is a VG copy, bound in contemporary full tree calf, with gilt-decorated covers and backstrip. The covers are clean and sound, but a bit worn at the extremities. Joints and hinges tender but holding, binding very firm. The title page is toned around the margin, but the other text pages are typically fresh, clean and bright. Save for a tiny Henry Sotheran (London) bookseller's label on the front pastedown, there are no indications of previous ownership. This is one of the most important geology books ever published, and is exceedingly rare in nice condition. BMNH 1584. Ward and Carozzi 1797. Challinor, 1971, The history of British geology, p. 70.

[adding:] An Account of a Voyage performed by Captain Flinders and Mr. Bass; by which the existence of a strait separating Van Dieman's Land from the continent of New Holland was ascertained.

      T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies, London 1802 - Two volumes, quarto, [1798]: 2 charts, 18 plates and four textual vignettes, the vignettes most unusually repeated on additional folding plates, a fine thick paper issue bound with the half-title, [1802]: one chart, five plates (three with original hand-colouring) and four textual vignettes (two with hand-colouring), bound with the half-title; a most attractive set in beautiful full tree-calf bindings by Aquarius, gilt, double spine labels, speckled edges. A beautiful and special set of this classic First Fleet book, in superb condition. This is an exceptionally handsome copy of the first edition of the complete work, published as two separate volumes four years apart. The first volume is from a very rare issue on thick paper with the engraved vignettes that appear in the text also bound in as separately printed engravings on fold-out sheets. Collins had arrived with the First Fleet as Judge-Advocate and was Secretary to Governor Phillip. His book is a valuable account of the early settlement by an educated and observant resident of ten years, and was the last of the Australian foundation books to be published. This majestic work, often described as the earliest history of Australia as an English colony, contains the most detailed and painstaking of all descriptions of the voyage and first settlement found in any of the early narratives. The book is illustrated with full-page engravings prepared in London by the well-known artist Edward Dayes from sketches done in the colony by the convict artist Thomas Watling which include the first views to have been published of British settlements at Sydney and Parramatta.The first volume, published in 1798, is scarce today. In this set, as well as having the unusual feature of the extra engravings, the first volume is the rare thick paper issue (the text block measuring 68 mm.); very few copies are known in this form (apparently unique to the first volume as we have found no record of a thick paper issue of the second volume). A similar thick paper copy of the first volume was offered for sale by Maggs Brothers in catalogue 807 (1952): Frank Maggs noted at the time that this was the only such copy he had seen. Ferguson mentions a "large paper" issue but Wantrup was unable to locate an example and speculates that Ferguson may have used "large paper" loosely and may have been referring to a copy similar to the Maggs example.The second volume, which came out four years after the first and is if anything slightly more difficult to find, ". is of the greatest importance, not only for its detailed chronicle of events but because of its narrative of voyages and expeditions of discovery? The journals of Bass and Flinders are of particular importance since Bass's journal has never been recovered and ? the accounts of inland expeditions recorded in the journals of John Price and Henry Hacking are singularly interesting. Quite apart from the exploration interest of these journals, they provide the first report of the existence of the koala, the earliest recorded sighting of a wombat on mainland Australia and the first report of the discovery of the lyrebird, which is for the first time described and illustrated in colour?' (Wantrup). In excellent condition in very good modern bindings. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         Cypripedium Calceolus / Sabot des Alpes [Larger Yellow Ladyslipper]

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by de Gouy. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection inLes Liliacéesfrom which this work comes.Les Liliacéesis one of two Redouté masterworks, the other being Les Roses. These works demonstrate the appropriateness of the accolade "Raphael of Flowers", for one is constantly impressed by the exquisite compositional sense and clarity of vision. More than with any other painter, one sees in Redouté's flowers living, breathing beings at their most beautiful moment.Cf. Nissen BBI 1597; cf.Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Dunthorne p 231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747; cf. MacPhaeil, Redouteana, 10.

      Tewkesbury: W. Dyde, 1802. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. Two volumes. Tewkesbury: W. Dyde, 1802-1803. First edition. 12mo. [iv],192,vii,[i]; [iv],200,vi pp. Decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces throughout. §Lacks title-pages: these appear to have been discarded by the binder. RARE: BL and Bodleian copies only. Not held at National Army Museum. §Powell Snell - of Guiting Grange, Guiting Power, Gloucestershire; a barrister by profession - was a Captain of Militia from the early 1770s, and raised the First Troop of Gloucestershire Gentleman and Yeomanry (now the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars) in 1795, at Cheltenham. He contributed poetry to the Gentleman's Magazine in the late 18th-century under a soubriquet, and Poetical Effusions from Fairy Camp - his sole known separate publication - seems to have been an attempt to collect his writings as he neared the end of his life. His 'My Own Epitaph, To be in the Church Yard, on a common Stone', rather touchingly concludes the second volume; he died about a year after its publication. From references in several poems (Louis Weltje, Sir John Lade), Snell - by his own acknowledgement a lover of the bottle - appears to have been personally associated with the 'fast' circle of the Prince Regent, and references to Zachary Moore and passing mention of Sterne's writings (whom Snell clearly admired) indicate possible youthful association with the circle of John Hall-Stevenson. Snell seems to have enjoyed a contemporary reputation in fashionable circles as a minor bel esprit. The poems include the usual odes, epitaphs, epigrams, puns, &c., but the overall tone is for occasional, social pieces, and the subject-matter tends towards the local: Gloucestershire and Worcestershire; Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol; female 'toasts' of the day, provincial drinking-houses, etc. 'Fairy Camp' is described by the author as 'a whimsical Retreat of P[owell] S[nell]... So call'd by an elegant lady of taste...Constructed on a small knoll, in the middle of a high hill of about forty yards diameter, in a semicircular plantation of firs and forest-trees, and surrounded by a fanciful railing, defended by a Royal Salute of brass guns...The Marquee built of wood resembling a real one, having the proper facings of the South Gloucestershire Militia. Gothic windows and door; the eaves ornamented with iron laurel-branches, between which, on Gala days, are placed small flags...'. Neatly bound in full contemporary straight-grained red morocco, gilt lettering, gilt and blind decoration, all edges gilt. Ink presentation inscription 'From Emma to Bruce London 9th Feby. 1838' to preliminary blank in each volume, and ink ownership name of recipient - identified by 19th-century owner's pencilled note as Alexander Bruce Dennistoun Sword '(1808-?)', also 1838 - to front pastedowns. Further 19th-century ink ownership name of one A. Whittle to each volume. Occasional internal soiling and trace of removal of early paper label to endpapers. The MISSING TITLE-PAGES aside, a very good set of the verse of an interesting minor poet in a neat & attractive contemporary binding.

         Iris Suziana / Iris de Suze [Mourning Iris]

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Tassaert. Very good condition apart from some light soiling in the top of the image and a small loss at the extreme right edge. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection inLes Liliacéesfrom which this work comes.Les Liliacéesis one of two Redouté masterworks, the other being Les Roses. These works demonstrate the appropriateness of the accolade "Raphael of Flowers", for one is constantly impressed by the exquisite compositional sense and clarity of vision. More than with any other painter, one sees in Redouté's flowers living, breathing beings at their most beautiful moment.Cf. Nissen BBI 1597; cf.Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Dunthorne p 231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747; cf. MacPhaeil, Redouteana, 10.

         Ueber die Musik der Indier. Eine Abhandlung. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt, mit erläuternden Anmerkungen und Zusätzen begleitet von (Johann) F(riedrich) H(ugo) v(on) Dalberg. Nebst einer Sammlung indischer und anderer Volks-Gesänge.

      Erfurt, Beyer und Maring, 1802 - 4 Bll., XVI, 132 S., 1 Bl. (Druckfehler), 56 S. 1 Titelkupfer und 29 (1 gefalt.) Kupfertafeln. Erste deutsche Ausgabe von "On the musical modes of the Hindus" von William Jones, sehr selten. - MGG II, 1871. - Das vorlegende Joseph Haydn gewidmete Werk ist nicht nur die Übersetzung des klassischen Textes von William Jones, sondern durch die Erweiterung des Friedrich Hugo von Dalberg (1760 - 1812) fast als eigenständiges Werk zu betrachten. Friedrich Hugo von Dalberg bekleidete "in Trier, Worms und Speyer die Würden eines Domkapitulars und kurtrierischen Geheimen Rats. Sein Interesse galt aber stets mehr den Wissenschaften und der Musik. Ausgedehnte Reisen (Italien um 1775, England 1798) vermittelten reiche Anregungen, sein umfassendes Wissen auf allen möglichen Gebieten in geistvollen Schriften anzuwenden. Nach zwei Arbeiten über Meteorologie und Strafgesetz (1782) wandte er sich ganz der Musiktheorie und -ästhetik zu. Schon die erste Publikation auf diesem Gebiet (Blicke eines Tonkünstlers in die Musik der Geister, Mannheim 1787) erweist ihn als einen der frühesten deutschen Musikschriftsteller, der der Tonkunst eine metaphysische Idee im romantischen Sinne zugrunde legte" (NDB III, 489). Er fügte dem englischen Original wesentliche Ergänzungen als Ergebnis "jahrelanger Sammlung von authentischen Nachrichten über die Musik der Inder, Perser, Araber und Chinesen bei" (MGG). Hierzu gehört eine Instrumentenkunde (S. 66-84 mit 3 Kupfern), die Sammlung Indostansicher Volksmelodien nach Hamilton Birds 1789 in Calcutta gestochenen Airs of Hindostan sowie eine Folge von 26 Kupfertafeln nach Rogmalas malerischen Synästhesien indischer Tongebilde. - "William Jones, as several scholars have pointed out, was a versatile philologist and a polymath who pioneered new fields of research and wrote on a wide range of topics, including Indian music. His publications, especially his translations of Kalidasa’s play Sakuntala and Jayadeva’s lyrical poem Gitagovinda, had a profound influence on scholars and philosophers in England, France and Germany, and also affected major nineteenth-century poets and novelists. On the Musical Modes of the Hindus was written in 1784 and published eight years later in the third volume of Asiatic Researches, the widely read transactions of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. It was first reprinted ("verbatim from the Calcutta edition") in London in 1799, and a German translation of it appeared as early as 1802 in Ueber die Musik der Indier, a richly illustrated anthology of various European writings on Indian music compiled by Friedrich Hugo von Dalberg. On the Musical Modes of the Hindus is of little relevance today. But two hundred years ago when virtually nothing was known about Indian music in Europe it was a landmark. It was the main source on India for scholars who began debating the origins of music in their general histories. In many of these works, even in some of the histories that appeared at the beginning of the twentieth century, William Jones is quoted as the authority of Indian music. While Jones glorified the greatness of India’s past and had more appreciation for Sanskrit texts on music than the music itself, the importance of his work was that he made European scholars aware of the unique system of Indian ragas. ."

         An Essay on Abstinence from Animal Food, as a Moral Duty.

      Printed for Richard Phillips, No. 71, St Pauls Church-Yard. 1802 - [4], 236pp; 8vo. A little light foxing. Contemporary quarter calf, marbled boards with vellum cornerpieces, gilt banded spine, with ducal gilt crest and the letter 'N' at foot, red gilt morocco label. v.g. Bronson, Joseph Ritson, 27; Bitting, Gastronomic Bibliography, page 399. FIRST EDITION. Ritson's last published work consisted of a defence of his life-long vegetarianism, and has become one of the very earliest manifestos for the cause. He believed that food constituted one of the determinants of human character, and thus carnivores, he insisted, were cruel, choleric and bad-tempered. Meat eating led to robbery, sycophancy and tyranny, and encouraged the predatory instinct. Although his ideas were never to achieve mass appeal, in the early 19th century they were influential. Shelley read the book avidly and became one of the most vociferous converts to this creed, as did his wife Mary, who notably presented Frankenstein's monster as a vegetarian who refused the food of man and declined to 'destroy the lamb and the kid, to glut my appetite; acorns and berries afford me sufficient nourishment'.
