         System der Wissenschaft. Erster Theil (all), die Phänomenologie des Geistes.

      Bamberg u. Würzburg, bey Joseph Anton Goebhardt, 1807. 8vo. Contemporary full paper binding with gilt title- and tome- label to spine. Minor wear to extremities. Internally totally fresh and clean. A small paper flaw to blank bottom of title-page. A splendid copy in completely original condition. (8), XCI, (3, - errata), (1, - hyalf-title), 765, (1), (2, -adverts) pp. ¶ The very rare first edition, in a splendid copy, of Hegel's first major work, "Phenomenology of Spirit", in which he gave the first systematic account of his own philosophy. The Phenomenology of Spirit can be read as the itinerary of human reason. It traces the development of the categories of reason from the basic categories of sense perception to the manifestations of absolute spirit as religion, art, and philosophy. As the historical coming into being of reason coincides with the genesis of its self-awareness, the Phenomenology of Spirit also offers a justification of the human condition. The importance of Hegel's work for the development of modern thought cannot be overestimated. The dialectical structures which keep in place Hegel's thought shall determine the trajectory of Marx and - through the lectures of Alexandre Kojève - the course of modern French philosophy.

         Points de partage et Communications projettees entre le Grand Ocean et l' Ocean Atlantique

      1807. Map. Engraving. Sheet measures 16.5 x 22 inches. Some light foxing, some small chips to edges. Map. Engraving. Sheet measures 16.5 x 22 inches. Some light foxing, some small chips to edges. This map is an early nautical rendering of the harbor of Veracruz, Mexico, oriented with north to the upper left. It focuses on shoreline geography and depths, particularly around the various islands and sand bars off the coast. In the upper left corner of the map is a profile view of the region's mountains. Below is a French description of the harbor attributed to Humboldt. Below the map is the title and a note addressing the map to Bernardo de Orta, a captain in the Spanish Navy. The map is in very good condition with deluxe margins. Some foxing and discoloration, particularly in the lower margin. Small tear to lower margin not affecting the image. Baron Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was a Prussian geographer and explorer who traveled extensively in Latin America. His maps of New Spain corroborated existing maps, documents, and reports with astronomical observations and today, exemplify state-of-the-art cartographic knowledge in the early 19th century. This map is a fine example of his work.

         Hours of Idleness, a Series of Poems, Original and Translated.

      Printed and sold by S. and J. Ridge 1807 - FIRST EDITION, occasional very slight fraying to edges, pp. xiii (including half-title), [i], 187 (pp. 19-22 cancelled as usual), crown 8vo, green crushed morocco by Riviere, French fillets to covers, spine gilt in compartments, gilt lettered direct, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, spine slightly faded, fine. The first volume of poetry published by Byron, aged just nineteen. The cancel of D2-3 (pp. 19-22), the 1806 watermark and the correct numbering of page 171 rather than as 71 indicate that this is the Crown 8vo edition rather than the controversial Demy 8vo edition, and that it is therefore the true first. With the signature of 'A. Wellesley' pasted onto one of the front free end papers, presumably from a previous binding. The possibility that it is Arthur Wellesley's ownership signature is presumably why it was kept when the book was rebound, but the signature is not that of the Duke of Wellington's. (Randolph p. 9; Wise vol. I p.7)

         MEXICO – COLONIAL PRINTING: LIGERISIMO BOSQUEJO DE LA VIDA DE FRANCISCO.

      Mexico City, . 1807 - Illustrated Broadside (30.5 x 21 cm / 12 x 8.3 inches), copper engraving and letterpress on laid, watermakred paper (Excellent Condition, strong impression, paper with deckled edges). An extremely rare Mexican colonial illustrated broadside celebrating the life of the late Italian Jesuit priest Francesco de Geronimo, issued to celebrate his recent beatification, published in Mexico City by the engraver and assayer Francisco Gordillo. - This extremely rare broadside celebrates the life of Francesco de Geronimo (1642 - 1716), an Italian Jesuit priest who was beatified by the Vatican in 1806. It was published in Mexico City by Francisco Gordillo, a Spanish-born engraver who is best known as the Chief Assayer of the Mexico City mint. The broadside is dominated by a fine frontal portrait of Francesco de Geronimo in his vestments, with Gordillo’s imprint appearing near the bottom of the platemark. The detailed letterpress text below recounts aspects of the priest’s life and accomplishments. While Francesco de Geronimo never stepped foot in the Americas, his tireless and selfless life of work assisting destitute people in Southern Italy was well known in Mexico, even ninety years after his death. We are also aware of another version of the broadside, bearing slightly different text. Additionally, it seems that Gordillo also issued the portrait of Francesco de Geronimo that appears on the broadside separately. These issues are likewise rare. A Note on Rarity - Like virtually all Mexican colonial broadsides, which tended to have been published in only very small print runs, the present issue of Gordillo’s work is extremely rare. We can locate only a single institutional example of this version, and can trace only a single sales record going back 30 years. Francisco Gordillo: Engraver and Essayist in Spain and Mexico - The creator of the present broadside, Francisco Gordillo (fl. 1770 - 1830), is best known for his numismatic work, as an engraver and assayer. His engraving of print on paper were something of boutique sideshow, ensuring that they are particularly rare. Little is known of Gordillo’s early life, although he hails from Andalucía, perhaps Seville. He first appears as an assistant engraver in the Case de la Moneda (mint) in Seville around 1770, where he made dies for coins. He remained in Seville for two decades, during which his 1789 medal, celebrating the coronation of Carlos IV, was much admired. In 1791, Gordillo transferred to the Casa de la Moneda in Madrid, where he remained for some years. By the late 1790s, Gordillo became frustrated that, despite his nearly 30 years of experience, he could not gain promotion to the post of Principal Engraver, a role he believed he deserved.

         Trattamento delle api in Favignana. Saggio di Teodoro Monticelli. Professore pubblico.

      Presso Vincenzo Orsino, Napoli 1807 - In 8, cm 13 x 20,5, pp. VI + 148 con 1 tavola incisa all'acquaforte ripiegata. Mezza pelle coeva con fregio al dorso. Opera poco comune di questo prete - naturalista di origini brindisine. A causa delle sue frequentazioni giacobine, nel 1795 venne arrestato. Imprigionato non rivelo' comunque quanto sapeva. Venne poi esiliato sull'isola di Favignana per 6 anni, dove, grazie alla clemenza del comandante di quella guarnigione, ebbe modoÂoccuparsi dei suoi studi naturalistici. In questa occasione redasse quest'operetta, pubblicata nel 1807 ed in seguito piu' volte ristampata. Pur avvalendosi di nozioni tratte da vari autori, grande e' l'attenzione data dall'autore agli usi e alla maniera particolare di svolgere quest'attivita' sull'Isola di Favignana e in generale sulle Egadi, cosi' come sono molti i raffronti con la realta' osservata dall'autore in Puglia. Sono anche elencate le specie di piante che fioriscono in inverno e in estate sull'isola. Le immagini della tavola raffigurano gli strumenti utilizzati cosi' come un curioso casco protettivo ITA

         Topographische Karte der Gegeden [!] um Wien. Seiner Kays. Majestät Allexander I. Kayser und Selbstherscher aller Reussen etc. etc. etc. in tiefester Ehrfurcht gewidmet, astronomisch trigonometrisch aufgenommen, und auf den Wiener Meridian gezeichnet.

      Wien, gestochen von Joseph Gareis, auf Kosten Ludwig Schmidts [in Kommission bei Giovanni Cappi], 1807. - Kupferstichkarte, zeitgenössisch in rot und blau ankoloriert und auf Leinen aufgezogen, spätere Bahnlinien von Hand ergänzt. 705 x 715 mm. Seltene Karte der Umgebung Wiens im sonst nicht dokumentierten ersten Zustand (datiert 1807 mit der Angabe "auf eigene Kosten verlegt", doch noch ohne den Vermerk "Bey Johann Cappi am Michaeler Platz", wie ihn das bisher früheste bekannte Exemplar im Wiener Kriegsarchiv trägt). "Ende April 1807 wurde in der Wiener Zeitung in großer Aufmachung die ausgezeichnete 'Topographische Karte der Gegenden um Wien' [.] angekündigt [.] Ohne Zweifel haben wir es hier mit dem bedeutendsten kartographischen Werk zu tun, das jemals im Verlag Johann Cappi erschienen ist" (Dörflinger, S. 501f.). Cappi nahm die Karte zunächst nur in Kommission; "erst nachdem der Verkauf zufriedenstellend angelaufen war, erwarb er auch die Verlagsrechte" (ebd.). Der "Ingenieur-Geograph" Ludwig Schmidt wies in seiner Anzeige eigens darauf hin, keine bereits existierende Karte als Grundlage verwendet zu haben, sondern das abgebildete Gebiet von nicht weniger als 64 deutschen Quatdratmeilen eigens trigonometrisch aufgenommen zu haben; auch ist "der so merkwürdige österreichische Schiffahrts-Kanal [Wiener-Neustädter-Kanal] mit allen in dieser Strecke befindlichen Schleusen, Brücken und Brück-Wasserleitungen, der Lauf der Flüsse und Bächer, dann die Gebirge auf das richtigste dargestellet" (zit. n. Dörflinger). 1808 erschien eine inhaltlich unveränderte Neuauflage mit der Verlagsbezeichnung "In Wien bey Johann Cappi"; noch Jahrzehnte später erschien eine undatierte Ausgabe mit Hinzufügung der ersten Eisenbahnlinien (Nord- und Südbahn). Diese sind bei vorliegendem Exemplar in dunkelrosafarbener Tinte händisch ergänzt. - Etwas braunfleckig, aber wohlerhalten. Am unteren Rand hs. Besitzvermerk um 1900: "Aufwerber Alfred, Wien IV. Wieden". In diesem ersten Etat sonst nicht nachgewiesen. Dörflinger, Österr. Karten des frühen 19. Jhs., S. 501-503, Cap 12. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         TALES FROM SHAKESPEARE: DESIGNED FOR THE USE OF YOUNG PEOPLE. TWO VOLUMES

      London: Thomas Hodgkins At The Juvenile Press, 1807. Two Volumes. 12mos, beautiful gilt-worked, red full-morocco leather bindings by Riviere & Sons. First edition, earliest printing. These 20 tales are illustrated with 20 engraved illustrations by William Mulready. First edition, first impression, with the imprint of the printer T. Davison on the verso of p. 235, vol. I, and with the Hanway Street address in the final advertisements. The "Tales" are the work of Lamb and his sister Mary, who had severe bouts of mental illness. Charles wrote the tragedies and Mary wrote the comedies. The book is designed to make the stories of Shakespeare's plays familiar to the young. According to the Cambridge History of English Literature, "the first book which, appealing to a general audience and to a rising generation, made Shakespeare a familiar and popular author."Originally the "Tales" were to be anonymous but Godwin (the publisher) persuaded an unreluctant Charles to have his name on the title page. Mary did not get her name on the title page until the seventh edition in 1838."Tales from Shakespeare" has been republished many times, in various editions and using various illustrators, including Arthur Rackham. Very Good (covers nice, some scattered foxing; rubbing & abrasions to front pastedowns from bookplates formerly removed).

         Lightning

      May 26, 1807. Printed Letter, signed in type, "Benjamin Dearborn", one page, 9.75" x 8.25", May 26, 1807, Boston. Addressed to the Presidents and Members of the American Academy of Arts and Science. Benjamin Dearborn, who signed the broadside in type, proposes to study the effects of lightning and methods of seeking safety from strikes. "From early life I have been in the habit of observing the circumstances attending an electric explosion, particularly where the loss of life was a consequence, and no instance has fallen within my knowledge of a person being killed by lightning in a close room. Whether it be a fact that such an occurrence never takes place, I am not prepared to decide; but if, upon extensive inquiry, none such shall be found, it may be inferred that a close room presents one of the greatest chances of security. / On this subject I have found the general opinion to be divided - advocates appearing as numerous for an open as for a close room during a thunder gust. In cases not admitting of mathematical demonstration, theories are often erected upon vague conjectures and unaccountable prejudices; but it is the dictate of reason that opinions thus founded should submit before the influence of facts - I would therefore offer, for the consideration of the Academy, the following motions"
