         LA MINERVE, Vaisseau Aerien Destine aux Decouvertes, et propose a toutes les Academies de l'Europe; par le Physicien Robertson, Ci-devant Professeur a l'Ecole centrale du departement de l'Ourte, de la Societe Galvanique,

      Vienna, S.-V. Degen, 1804 and Paris, Hocquet, 1820.. de celle d'Emulation de Liege, et de celle pour l'Encouragement des Sciences et Arts de Hambourg. SECOND EDITION, revue et corrigee, 1820. French text, 8vo, approximately 190 x 125 mm, 7½ x 5 inches, woodcut title vignette, 4 woodcut illustrations printed on 3 pages, one large folding plate of the Minerve, plus at the end ONE EXTRA folding plate of a fantasy flying machine which seems to come from an Italian work, pages: 36, (4), bound in modern half calf over cloth sides, raised bands and gilt decoration to spine, contrasting gilt lettered labels, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Corners and hinges very slightly rubbed, small blemish to upper hinge, front inner paper hinge cracked, 2 very small repairs to edge of front endpaper, occasional pale foxing and pale age-browning, the folding plate is faintly foxed at the edges, there is a small light stain at the top outer corner, a tiny piece missing from the lower corner and a very short closed edge tear at the inner edge (repaired on reverse), the unnumbered illustrated pages at the end are very faintly foxed at the edges, otherwise a very good copy. See Francis Terpac, Devices of Wonder, page 301-303. Étienne-Gaspard Robert (1763-1837) was a famous Belgian stage magician pioneering projection techniques for phantasmagoria shows, at the same time pursuing an academic career as professor of physics at Liege, specialising in optics. He also had vast experience with balloons - he was Commandant des Aerostiers during the war, serving under General Jourdain in Belgium and Holland in 1803/4, providing valuable observations on the enemy troops and movements from tethered and untethered balloon observing stations; he is also regarded by some as the inventor of the parachute. There was nothing about the balloon described in this pamphlet that would have worked, and Robertson knew it, intending his work to be more of caricature of existing attempts in flight than as a science fiction creation. The balloon was to have been one of the biggest ever designed with a 150 foot diameter for a load of 161,000 lbs including 60 scientists, plus some ladies who have their own quarters, and it was to be fitted out with a library, church, exercise area, chemistry laboratory, music room, food and wine storage, kitchen, the only place where a fire is allowed, etc. It is also provided with a small ship underneath for sea landings. The first edition which is extremely scarce was first published in Vienne, France in 1804. This is mentioned on the title page and see Tissandier, Bibliographie Aeronautique page 33.

      London: Printed for Richard Phillips,, 1804-7. Commander in Chief of the American Forces, during the War which established the Independence of his Country, and First President of the United States. Compiled under the inspection of the Honourable Bushrod Washington, from Original Papers bequeathed to him by his deceased Relative. To which is prefixed an introduction, containing a compendious view of the colonies planted by the English on the continent of North America. 5 volumes, quarto (265 x 205 mm). Contemporary tree calf professionally refurbished (some labels, headbands and corners restored), smooth spines gilt banded, decorated with wavy-line roll tool and floriate centre tools, green morocco twin labels, speckled edges. 3 frontispieces (portrait of Washington by Fittler after Stuart, view of Mount Vernon by Milton after George Isham Parkyns, view of Washington DC in 1800 by Heath after Parkyns), 12 folding maps, one vignette at end of vol. III by Cooke after Parkyns ("The Elm at Kensington, under which Mr. Penn made the first Treaty with the Indians"). Near contemporary armorial bookplates of Richard Dobson. Offsetting from frontispieces, scattered foxing to maps, general toning of letterpress. A very attractive, wide-margined set, with the publisher's advertisements at the end of vols. I and V, notice in vol. II ("It is supposed that the Manuscript of another Volume of this Work will be received from America in the course of the Autumn" of 1804).

"Apart from freeing his slaves after Martha Washington's death, Washington's long and detailed will left his public and private papers to his favourite nephew, Associate Justice Bushrod Washington. Bushrod, in turn, convinced John Marshall to collaborate on writing the first definitive biography of Washington. A year after Washington's death, Tobias Lear, Washington's longtime private secretary, sent the first of five trunks of Washington's personal and public papers, which Marshall and Bushrod Washington began converting into a monumental five-volume Life of George Washington. It was published from 1804 to 1807 and, until the Civil War, remained the definitive history of eighteenth-century America, including the history of the American Revolution, the evolution of American government and the Constitution, and the life of Washington as a military and political leader" (Harlow Giles Unger, John Marshall: The Chief Justice Who Saved The Nation, 2014). A particularly appealing set of the uncommon quarto issue, elegantly bound and with all maps and plates present.

         An experimental inquiry into the nature and propagation of heat

      J. Mawman, London 1804 - Inscribed to Francis Maseres Leslie, John (1766-1832). An experimental inquiry into the nature, and propagation, of heat. 8vo. xv [1, errata], 562pp. Slip titled "Additional errata" tipped to errata page. 9 folding plates. London: J. Mawman, 1804. 211 x 129 mm. Quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Light browning, stamps of the Inner Temple Library on title, plate versos and 1 or 2 other places, but very good. Author's presentation inscription to Baron [Francis] Maseres (1731-1824) on the flyleaf: "To Baron Maseres with best wishes from the Author." Maseres's signature on title. Bookplate of the Inner Temple. First Edition. Leslie's magnum opus "established several fundamental laws of heat radiation: that the emissivity and absorptivity for any surface are equal, that the emissivity of a surface increases with the increase of reflectivity, and that the intensity of heat radiated from a surface is proportional to the sine of the angle of the rays to the surface. The book also played a major role in the early nineteenth-century argument about whether heat was a form of matter or a mode of motion. Leslie's experiments showed that heat, unlike light, was not directly transmitted through transparent solids. Since Leslie embraced a corpuscular theory, he incorrectly interpreted the apparent blackage of heat radiation as evidence that heat was composed of particles much larger than those of light. He borrowed from James Hutton the basic notion that heat was a compound formed by the union of light particles with ordinary particles of matter. Francois Delarotche later showed that Leslie's failure to detect direct transmission of heat through solids was a result of using only low-temperature heat sources whose radiation was absorbed by the solid screens. In the meantime, Leslie's puzzling experimental results had stimulated further investigations of diathermancy and the nature of radiant heat" (DSB). Francis Maseres, the recipient of this copy, wrote several works on mathematics (one with Charles Babbage) that won the praise of Joseph Priestley; he also served as Quebec's attorney-general from 1766-69. He was a member of the Inner Temple, to which he bequeathed his library. Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 203. Cardwell, From Watt to Clausius, pp. 107-112. DNB for Maseres.

         Corso di matematica sublime. Tomo I-IV. Calcolo delle differenze finite e sue applicazioni e calcolo differenziale, integrale e sue applicazioni del dott. Vincenzio Brunacci pubblico professore di matematica sublime nell'università di Pavia. Membro dell'Istituto Nazionale e dell'Accademia delle Scienze di Turino Firenze: presso Pietro Allegrini, 1804-1808

      In-4 (27,5 cm) 4 voll. 8 X 298 (1) c. (di tav. ripiegata); 464 (4) c. (di tavole ripiegate); VII (1) 310 (1) c. (di tav. ripiegata); VIII 302 (20) (2) c. (di tav. ripiegate). Marca editoriale calcografata a tutti i frontespizi tranne il primo. Bella legatura in mezza pelle, con piatti in carta marmorizzata. Qualche pagina arrossata e qualche macchia da ossidazione. Tavole incise da Giuseppe Poggiali. Brunacci Vincenzo (1768-1818). Vincenzo Brunacci nacque a Firenze il 3 marzo 1768 e morì a Pavia il 18 giugno 1818. Compì studi di medicina, astronomia e matematica presso l'Università di Pisa sotto la guida di Pietro Paoli e nel 1790 intraprese l'attività di insegnamento presso l'Istituto della Marina di Livorno prima come docente di matematica e nautica, poi anche di balistica. Dovette trasferirsi in Francia tra il 1799 e il 1800 per problemi politici sorti in seguito alla sua adesione alla causa repubblicana dopo l'ingresso di Napoleone in Italia (a metà degli anni Novanta era tra l'altro entrato in contatto a Pavia con l'ambiente matematico di cui facevano parte Mascheroni e i Fontana). Al rientro, assunse in un primo tempo la cattedra del suo maestro Paoli all'Università di Pisa, per poi spostarsi, nel 1801, a Pavia e divenire rettore dell'Università. Nel 1803 entrò a far parte dell'Istituto Nazionale Italiano, costituito dai francesi sul modello di quello parigino, e nel 1806 divenne membro della Società Italiana delle Scienze. Ebbe tra i suoi allievi Antonio Bordoni e Ottaviano Fabrizio Mossotti. Brunacci ricoprì anche alcune importanti cariche pubbliche: nel 1805 fece parte della Commissione deputata alla progettazione del naviglio pavese, mentre un anno più tardi ottenne la nomina a ispettore delle acque e delle strade. Nel 1809, ancora, fu membro della Commissione per il nuovo sistema di misure e pesi, e dal 1811 ispettore generale della Pubblica Istruzione. Tra le opere di cui fu autore si ricordano l'Opuscolo analitico (1792), il Calcolo integrale delle equazioni lineari (1798), il Corso di matematica sublime in quattro volumi, pubblicati tra il 1804 e il 1807 a Firenze, e dedicati al calcolo delle differenze finite, al calcolo differenziale e integrale (tale opera può essere a buon diritto considerata il suo lavoro più importante); gli Elementi di algebra e di geometria, libro di testo in due volumi (1809), e un Trattato dell'ariete idraulico (1810).

      1804 - Extremely rare Mexican publication on the Spanish language, it´s orthography and diccionary. 1804. Mexico. Mariano de Zuñiga y Ontiveros. 8vo (142 x 96 mm). 1 ff., 92 pp., 1 [blank].

The contents of the work are mixed, the author deals with a variety of subjects, including notes of several languages; his theory “merece en esta nota un comentario mas extensor por lo disparatado de las ideas que sustenta su autor en material de ortografia” (Oroz, Jose Toribio Medina y su aficion a la linguistica y a la filologia).

         Zeichnungen. Adam Johann Ingruber der Heilkunde Doctor und praktischen Arzte zu Ofen. Im Jahre des Erlösers 1804

      Ofen [Buda] 1804 - Unique, manuscript album with 18 plates of colored drawings. Bound in contemporary marbled paper. [24] leaves. Unique, early nineteenth-century, manuscript album, with original, colored drawings of botanical specimens after Betruch's Bilderbuch für Kinder. The album was created by Adam Johann Ingruber, who graduated from the Medical Department of the Royal University of Pest in 1804. This collection of botanical drawings is probably made in relation to the University's botanical garden, whose collection had recently been moved to Pest. The Hortus Botanicus, or as it is called in Hungarian the Füvészkert, was established by Jakab Winterl a professor of chemistry and botany, in 1771 at Nagyszombat (today Trnava in Slovakia) to serve as a practical tool for the Medical Department of the University (then also located at Nagyszombat). As the University moved in 1777, the botanical collection followed it first to Buda, and within a few years to Pest where - after several relocations - it found its final place in 1847. The album contains drawings of thirty-one plants on sixteen plates, and two plates with multiple images of 3 "insects" (silkworm, honeybee, euscorpius) and an amphibian, a rattlesnake. Each image is labeled in French, Latin, and German, and a short description indicates the origin of the specimen. Most plants are from Asia, South America, Africa and the southern part of Europe. All images - except for one "La Quajac" - are very fine and neat copies from Friedrich Justin Bertuch's Bilderbuch für Kinder, a richly illustrated pictorial dictionary which was published in monthly installments since 1790. Cover somewhat worn, stained. Text in French, Latin, and German. Plates are chipped at upper corner, spotted, some are slightly dusted. One plate with a larger stain which tanned the paper with no damage to the image. A few plates are over-trimmed. All illustrations are in fine, the brochure itself in good condition. Bound in contemporary marbled paper Unique, manuscript album with 18 plates of colored drawings.

         Outstanding Autographed Letter Signed about the Alexander Hamilton / Aaron Burr duel

      New York 1804 - 2 pages (front and back), 8 x 6.25 inches, (New York), docketed in Charles Hamilton's hand, circa September 1804, to his brother, admonishing Aaron Burr and both participating "Seconds." in part: ".Mr. White or anybody else can do but little good by swearing at Burr. He has laid low the greatest man in America. Let him enjoy his triumph. I fancy his feelings are by no means available. He will die in obscurity and instead of having a monument created to his memory; it shall be said on his tomb 'There Lies The Murderer of Hamilton.' Mr. Pendleton and Van Ness were both at the . . . a few days since. The first had returned to Albany. Van Ness I know what is become of. He makes but short stops. I conjecture he has now and then a glimpse of the gallows in his waking as well as debilitating dreams. For he is an accomplice to the commission of murder, cannot be punished until his principal is convicted. Pendleton has nothing to do with until the murder but he is punishable by state law." NOTE: "Seconds" were men chosen by the principal participants whose job it was to ensure that a duel was carried out under honorable conditions, on a proper field and with equally deadly weapons. In this case Nathaniel Pendleton was chosen by Hamilton to be his "Second" and to ensure that the duel proceeded with honor. William P. Van Ness fulfilled the same role for Aaron Burr. It is interesting that Foote would hold such animosity against Nathaniel Pendleton, a lifelong friend of Hamilton and the executor of his estate. Pendleton, aware of the fact that Burr was a marksman had actually tried to persuade Hamilton to apologize with dignity. Hamilton refused to budge. At the conclusion of the event Pendleton and Van Ness filed a joint statement to the world attesting to the fact that the duel was carried out with honor. A rare memento directly related to one of America's greatest tragedies. Small chip at the bottom margin not affecting the text; neat pencil notations at the top of the first page; evenly toned with neat folds.

III (1811), xv, [1], 479, [1] p., 5 p. index, colored frontispiece, title page vignette and 22 hand-colored plates with explanatory leaves]. ***CONTENT: Best known as the physician who distinguished the palsy disease that now bears his name, Parkinson (1755-1824) was also a well-read amateur paleontologist. This pioneering treatise introduced the ideas of Lamarck, Cuvier, John Farey and William Smith to the educated public, and was one of the earliest systematic attempts to identify and interpret fossils. Many well-known fossil types are superbly described for the first time and illustrated with striking hand-colored engravings. Volume I is devoted to the plant kingdom and describes coal, lignite and peat as well as petrified wood, ferns, stems, leaves and fruits, mainly from Carboniferous and Tertiary strata. A short history of paleontological knowledge is also provided. Volume II treats corals, sponges and crinoids, and introduces the Linnaean system of taxonomic nomenclature. Volume III describes a variety of higher fossil animals: echinoderms, mollusks, trilobites, arthropods, fishes, reptiles and mammals, and includes a splendid frontispiece of an Ohio mastodon tooth. Parkinson's evolving theoretical views were expounded in the third volume; he became increasingly convinced that many fossils belonged to extinct species. He boldly expressed his conviction that the "days" of the Biblical account of Creation actually represented very long periods of Earth history. This work was a monumental contribution to the understanding of British paleontology. ***CONDITION: This is a near Fine set bound in contemporary marbled boards with later calf spines bearing maroon, gilt-lettered leather title labels. The covers are clean and sound, showing only mild rubbing and edgewear. The backstrips are fully complete, as are the labels, with bright, bold lettering. Joints and hinges worn but holding, bindings very firm. Save for some offsetting and occasional very light foxing, the text pages are typically fresh, clean and bright. The colored plates are pristine, with bright, vibrant coloration. The only traces of previous ownership are some interesting penciled quotations from Genesis, inscribed on an endpaper of volume one in a contemporary hand; later scant pencil notes and distinctive bookplates of John W. Wells on the front pastedowns. The first edition of this work has become exceedingly scarce. This is a very handsome, fully complete set. BMNH 1523. Ward and Carozzi 1735. Domestic and international shipping will be extra for this set, but only at my cost. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Organic Remains of a Former World, An Examination of the Mineralized Remains of the Vegetables and Animals of the Antediluvian World Generally Termed Extraneous Fossils.

      London: Whittingham and Published by Robson, et al 1804 - London: Whittingham and published by Robson, et al 1804. FIRST EDITION. Large 4to. Single volume (there were three, published in 1804,  1808 and 1811) I.            Vegetable Kingdom. 1804. [iv]-vi-xii, 471, [9 engraved plates and 4 page index]. With frontispiece, engraving on title and 9 hand coloured plates. First edition of one of the earliest systematic works on fossils. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, there was very little definitive teaching of geology in Britain. In London the best collection of fossils and minerals was to be found at the Royal Institution, under the charge of Humphry Davy. "The epistolary style (of Parkinson’s work) was selected as the most easy of comprehension and the most likely to stimulate popular interest in fossils" (Zittel). Many fossil species are introduced in these pages for the first time, including plant, zoophyte, Amphibia and mammals. The first volume provides a short history of palaeontology, an account of the various views about fossils and a discussion of the surface forms and physical constitution of the earth. Peat, coal, and bitumen, among other matter, was described according to their properties, their mode of occurrence, state of preservation, and the changes through which they had passed. Parkinson (1755-1824) was an important physician (in 1817 he first described a shaking malady now known as Parkinson’s Disease) as well as an amateur geologist.   Condition Report Externally Spine – good condition – later spine with original boards.

        Pokeach Iwrim. Beleuchtung einiger mystischen Allegorien und Hieroglyphen, in nächster Beziehung auf den durch [Karl Adolf] Bohemanns Missbrauch und die Bekanntmachung seiner Urkunden merkwürdig gewordenen Orden der asiatischen Brüder / In Briefen an einen Freund in America von Johann Caspar Velthusen [.]. Erstausg.

      Stade, Auf Kosten des Verfassers, 1804. - 319 S., Kl.-8°, Pappband d. Zt. mit goldgepr. Rückenschild Kloß 1962; Wolfstieg 42988; Caillet 11070; Ackermann V/319: "Selten". - Richtet sich gegen den 1780 in Österreich entstandenen Hochgrad-Orden der "Asiatischen Brüder". Nach Lennhoff,Posner,Binder war die Organisation "nichts anderes als eine Absplitterung der Rosenkreuzer, in der das kirchliche, ja auch christliche Element fast völlig ausgeschaltet war." Der Inhalt der Lehre sollte die "echten Geheimnisse und moralisch-physischen Aufschlüsse der Hieroglyphen des Ordens der Ritter und Brüder Freimaurer" beinhalten. Die Zahlensymbolik des Martinismus wurde dabei mit kabbalistischen Elementen der Rosenkreuzer verbunden. "Auf den beiden höchsten Ordensstufen werde Geistesbeschwörung getrieben". - Enthält: "Mystischen Allegorien und Hieroglyphen" in drei Heften [kmpl.] u. "Maurerische Phantasien und Träume eines Pilgers auf seinem Durchzuge durchs Land Bochim in den letzten sieben Monaten des Jahres 1803, nebst etlichen ernsthaften Geisterhebungen." - Etwas berieben u. leicht bestossen; zusätzliches Rückenschild mit Standortnr.; Schnitt u. Vorsätze etwas braunfleckig u. Vorsatz mit Rest eines Aufklebers; Titel mit altem Logenstempel "St. Johannis Loge zur gekrönten Schlange in Goerlitz 1764"; ein gutes Expl.
