        Merkwürdige Aeusserungen Kant's von einem seiner Tischgenossen. Königsberg: Gottlieb Lebrecht Hering, 1804.

      - First edition of one of the earliest biographical accounts of Immanuel Kant - 'Noteable remarks by Kant from one of his table companions'. Adickes 2791. The Königsberg professor J.G. Hasse was a close friend of Kant and a frequent guest at his dinner table. Later in 1804 a second edition was published by Nicolovius under the title 'Lezte Aeusserungen Kant's von einem seiner Tischgenossen. Zweyter Abdruck'. This first printing is extremely rare, WorldCat loctating only three institutional copies at the Universities of Nebraska and Columbia, and the National Library of Poland. 'All in all, Hasse's "Notable Remarks by Kant" amounts to a strange tribute. No wonder Sheffner found the book despicable, observing that "it would not be easy to put such a great number of trivialities, minutiae, and indelicacies on so few pages". Metzger, on the other hand, seems to have found in Hasse's ambiguities useful reminders of Kant's true character. Indeed, his Remarks on Kant can be seen as Metzger's attempt to put Hasse's remarks in a more proper light' (Manfre Kuehn, Kant: A Biography, p. 6). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, [ii], 50 pp., contemporary blue wrappers with wear around the spine, the word 'Universität' in old crayon at foot of p. 1, no other inscriptions and no stamps, some light foxing mainly confined to the wide margins, a very good copy, edges uncut.

        Nouvelle carte de la partie occidentale de Dalmatie dressee sur les lieux à Venice

      1804. Carta della parte occidentale della Dalmazia tratta dalla matrice realizzata da Paolo Santini per illustrare l' "Atlas Universel dresse sur les meilleures cartes modernes" che fu stampato a Venezia fra il 1776 ed il 1784. Rispetto alla carta del Santini, nel cartiglio non riporta la firma "P. Santini 1780" e la raffigurazione del territorio si presenta maggiormente completa ed arricchita da nuovi toponimi. La carta, con ogni probabilità da attribuirsi alla Società Calcografica (Zatta-Remondini), fa parte di una serie di carte tratte da matrici del Santini o dello Zatta stesso, stampate per la realizzazione di un nuovo atlante che però non venne mai portato a termine. Infatti nessun atlante, con proprio frontespizio, contenente queste carte risulta censito nelle bibliografie di riferimento. Rara, acquerellatura confinale coeva. Piega editoriale.

        Modello per l'intaglio della grande Carta Topografica della Repubblica Italiana inciso dai fratelli Bordiga 1804 an° III

      Interessante e raro foglio, inciso da Benedetto e Gaudenzio Bordiga, che rappresenta il modello d'intaglio per la "Carta Topografica della Repubblica Italiana" i cui lavori vennero iniziati a seguito del decreto del Melzi, Vice Presidente della Repubblica, datato 25 dicembre 1802, ma non vennero mai portati a termine. Il modello si presenta inserito in decorativa cornice all'interno della quale vi sono tre riquadri. Il primo, sulla sinistra, è una prova della raffigurazione orografica a fine tratteggio ad illuminazione mista della zona di Lecco e del lago di Annone. Il riquadro centrale riguarda la scelta dei caratteri ortografici, mentre quello sulla destra inerente la zona di Magenta, Corbetta, Abbiategrasso ed il fiume Ticino è un saggio della raffigurazione dei diversi tipi di terreno e della rete stradale.In una lettera al Ministro degli Affari Interni Daniele Felici in data 21 ottobre 1804, gli astronomi di Brera Oriani e De Cesaris dicono che dovendosi nel prossimo anno iniziare i lavori d'intaglio della Carta della Repubblica, hanno ritenuto opportuno "eccitare l'incisore Bordiga, che ha già lodevolmente intagliato quella della Lombardia, a disporre un Saggio, che potesse servire di campione, ed insieme a proporre le condizioni, sotto le quali egli ne avrebbe assunto l'incarico"..."ad eccezione di qualche carattere che deve essere corretto e migliorato" viene ritenuto "assai bello: gli oggetti vi sono nettamente espressi e l'occhio vi si aggira senza confusione e con piacere: farà anche miglior effetto quando i boschi vi saranno tratteggiati più forti. Le condizioni pure ci sembrano oneste.". Da un rapporto a firma De Capitani (1° Divisione) al Ministro Felici, si rileva che il saggio dei Bordiga venne mostrato al Longhi, allora professore di Incisione all'Accademia di Brera: "Il minuto esame prestato sul detto modello fa certamente riconoscere un merito non comune nel proposto lavoro, col quale i suddetti incisori possono lusingarsi si onorare l'arte propria, non meno che il paese dove sarà perfezionata un'opera di tanto pregio e dispendio.".

        An experimental inquiry into the nature and propagation of heat

      London: J. Mawman, 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.

Il riquadro centrale riguarda la scelta dei caratteri ortografici, mentre quello sulla destra inerente la zona di Magenta, Corbetta, Abbiategrasso ed il fiume Ticino è un saggio della raffigurazione dei diversi tipi di terreno e della rete stradale.In una lettera al Ministro degli Affari Interni Daniele Felici in data 21 ottobre 1804, gli astronomi di Brera Oriani e De Cesaris dicono che dovendosi nel prossimo anno iniziare i lavori d'intaglio della Carta della Repubblica, hanno ritenuto opportuno "eccitare l'incisore Bordiga, che ha già lodevolmente intagliato quella della Lombardia, a disporre un Saggio, che potesse servire di campione, ed insieme a proporre le condizioni, sotto le quali egli ne avrebbe assunto l'incarico"."ad eccezione di qualche carattere che deve essere corretto e migliorato" viene ritenuto "assai bello: gli oggetti vi sono nettamente espressi e l'occhio vi si aggira senza confusione e con piacere: farà anche miglior effetto quando i boschi vi saranno tratteggiati più forti. Le condizioni pure ci sembrano oneste.". Da un rapporto a firma De Capitani (1° Divisione) al Ministro Felici, si rileva che il saggio dei Bordiga venne mostrato al Longhi, allora professore di Incisione all'Accademia di Brera: "Il minuto esame prestato sul detto modello fa certamente riconoscere un merito non comune nel proposto lavoro, col quale i suddetti incisori possono lusingarsi si onorare l'arte propria, non meno che il paese dove sarà perfezionata un'opera di tanto pregio e dispendio.".

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.

        Nouvelle carte de la partie occidentale de Dalmatie dressee sur les lieux à Venice

      Dalmazia 1804 - Carta della parte occidentale della Dalmazia tratta dalla matrice realizzata da Paolo Santini per illustrare l' "Atlas Universel dresse sur les meilleures cartes modernes" che fu stampato a Venezia fra il 1776 ed il 1784. Rispetto alla carta del Santini, nel cartiglio non riporta la firma "P. Santini 1780" e la raffigurazione del territorio si presenta maggiormente completa ed arricchita da nuovi toponimi. La carta, con ogni probabilità da attribuirsi alla Società Calcografica (Zatta-Remondini), fa parte di una serie di carte tratte da matrici del Santini o dello Zatta stesso, stampate per la realizzazione di un nuovo atlante che però non venne mai portato a termine. Infatti nessun atlante, con proprio frontespizio, contenente queste carte risulta censito nelle bibliografie di riferimento. Rara, acquerellatura confinale coeva. Piega editoriale. mm 467x620

        [drop-title] Arte de la lengua zebuana.

      No publisher/printer. The Cebuano (here "Zebuana") language is an Austronesian language spoken in the Philippines, largely in Central Visayas, western parts of Eastern Visayas, and most parts of Mindanao. This first edition of Encina's grammar of that language is thought by Palau to have been surreptitiously printed at Manila in about 1804; it was done on "rice paper." WorldCat locates only four U.S. libraries reporting ownership of this edition (Yale, Harvard, New Mexico, and the John Carter Brown).

        Political Economy: Founded in Justice and Humanity. In a Letter to a Friend. By W.T.

      Washington, D.C.: Printed by Samuel Harrison Smith, 1804. 8vo. 24pp. Expertly bound to style in period tree sheep and marbled paper covered boardsRare anti-slavery tract by the first architect of the U.S. Capitol.A powerful anti-slavery tract by William Thornton, the great Federal-era polymath and designer of the United States Capitol. Thornton was born in 1759 in the British Virgin Islands, scion of a Tortola-based Quaker family and heir to a slave-worked sugar plantation. Sent to England at the age of five, Thornton did not return to Tortola until 1786, whereupon he began to sense the incommensurability of his Quaker values and the source of his income. Later that year, he emigrated to the U.S. and by 1788 was actively involved in the movement to free slaves through African colonization. In the present pamphlet, Thornton advocates abolition, asking how, "[a]fter the Americans, in the conscious pride of nature, declared to the whole world, in their great charter of independence, that every man is equally entitled to the protection of life, liberty and prosperity...the negroes are still in slavery" (p.[3]).Sabin 95645; Shaw & Shoemaker 7349.

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.

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).

No. 29 (17 July 1804) gives a brief announcement of Hamilton's death from a bullet wound sustained from his duel with Aaron Burr on 11 July 1804 and promises more particulars in a future issues of the paper. It notes that "the gentlemen of the bar, who were attending the Circuit at Claverack ... unanimously agreed to wear a crape on the left arm for one month, as a token of their regard for Gen. Hamilton." Nos. 30 and 31 reprint from the Evening Post the series of letters passed between Hamilton and Burr before the duel. This is followed by on original "Tribute," unsigned, but likely by the publisher Harry Croswell, which commends Hamilton for his defense of the free press: "But to me he once rendered unequalled service, apart from that rendered to his country generally. In my defence, and in defence of the American press, he once exerted his unrivaled eloquence ..." No. 31 prints Gouverneur Morris' funeral oration, followed by Hamilton's Last Will and Testament.

        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.

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).

        Obserbaciones sobre la ortografia y sobre el diccionario de la lengua Castellana de la Academia Española

      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]. Unbound. Worm holes throughout, first leaves with upper corners slightly dog-eared, affecting a few letters. 1,200 $ First edition apparently; extremely rare and mysterious publication, of which we could find only one copy at the BNE and one at DIBAM (Chile), and none in the United States, and none as having auctioned according to RBH. 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). Medina, Mexico, 9668. Not in Sabin. Miguel Ángel Esparza Torres, Bibliografía cronológica de la lingüística, la gramática y la lexicografía, 80. [Attributes: First Edition]
