GOETHE, Johann Wolfgang von.
Versuch über die Metamorphose der Pflanzen. Übersetzt von Friedrich Soret, nebst geschichtlichen Nachträgen. - Essai sur la métamorphose des plantes...

Stuttgart, Cotta 1831. 8°. (2) ll., 239 pp, (1) p. Later half calf, original wrappers preserved and bound in. Spine gilt and spine label. First edition of the expanded and definite text, first French edition. The following work first published in 1790 without additions undoubtedly counts as one of Goethe's most important scientific works. Again and again, as here, he is interested in proving the organic nature of all natural phenomena and development as a process. Thus, Goethe opposed the ideas of the well-regarded Linné and his relatively static ideas on botanical classification based on Determination and proposed, that it was the plants ?bestowed with a particular tenacity, a fortunate mobility ..., in so many different environments ... to adapt and then to shape and to reshape." Neufforge described the "Metamorphosen" so: ?Besides Goethe's anatomical works, it is the work that allows the deepest insight into his ideas regarding the manner and future of Nature and places him as one of the precursors of Darwin." (S. 511). In the first of the "Nachträge und Zusätze" the author himself describes how he came to be a botanist and expresses clearly how influential the journey to Italy from 1786 was for him and with regard to his idea of an ?original plant". The second part of the additions is an unmistakable testimonial to the reserved reception that Goethe's work had received. Partly for this reason he sought an alternative way to formulate his thoughts, and wrote the Elegy ?Metamorphose der Pflanzen", which was first published in the Schiller Musenalmanach of 1799 ("Dich verwirret, Geliebte ..."). Some damp-staining, the binding is very decorative. Goed. IV 3, 577,3; Hagen 214; Kippenberg I, 814; not with Borst, Brieger und Wilp.-G.

(MONTESQUIEU, Charles - Louis de S.)
Le Temple de Gnide(.) Nouvelle Edition, Avec Figures Gravées par N. Le Mire, des Acad. de Vienne en Autriche et de Rouen, D'après les Deßins de Ch. Eisen. Le Text Gravé par Drouet...

Paris, Le Mire 1772. Gr.-8vo. (3) lvs., 7 pp., (1) p. (blank), 104 pp. + (16) lvs. With 16 engraved plates, frontispiece, title and 1 headpiece, engraved as well, all by Le Mire after Eisen. Text engraved throughout by Drouet. 19th century brown morocco (front boards with a light stain). First edition with these illustrations. The prose work "Le Temple de Gnide", one of Montesquieu's early works, takes as substance a mythological story and presents it as fiction as a new translation. The author himself described this short text "Céphise" as being an appendix to the "Temple", and it can be found at the end of this copy. Eisen's illustrations (besides frontispiece and title, one to each of the 7 parts of the "Temple" and 2 of "Céphise") are considered the best that he ever executed (Lewine: "In the plates artist and engraver both appear at their best". Ray: "With regard to suavity and grace Eisen never surpassed these plates"). According to Cohen / R.. and others they are in various conditions: in our copy each has been printed as normal and includes text and numbers, and additionally for each of the 7 parts a plate without text and numbers has been bound in (giving a total of 16 copper plates). The latter are evidently very rare proof copies (Lewine: "The unlettered proofs are worth a fancy price, still more so the etchings, which are excessively rare") on a different (thicker) paper. In addition - perhaps to achieve a much better picture quality in the case that they might be offered as individual prints – the unprinted side has been passed over a blank plate, which has produced an elevated plate edge. Comparing the lettered and the unlettered copies it is to realize that the first one has been a little bit altered after the proof (the arrangement of the folds of Venus’ robe). On the second illustration of "Céphise" one finds two different signatures, which on our copy are : „La chaleur va les faire renaître...“. „Suivant Cohen, c’est cette dernière qu’il faut préférer“ (Tchémerzine). In places a few stains, the paper of the unlettered proofs slightly browned; a very clean copy. Cohen / R. 726/7; Tchémerzine VIII, 455; Brunet III, 1860; Lewine 367; Ray I, 32; Fürstenberg S. 282/3.

[Rhetoric, first editions]

(Thümmel, Moritz August von)
Die Inoculation der Liebe. Eine Erzählung.

Leipzig, Weidmanns Erben und Reich 1771. 8vo. (1) leaf, 70 pp. Frontispiece, title-vignette and cul-de lampe all engraved by Geyser after Oeser. Later boards (slightly rubbed), gilt spine label. First edition. The illustrations in this copy would appear to be in an early state, and not recorded by some authorities (cf. Deusch in: Philobiblon 10 (1966) H. 1. p. 7 and figs. 12 – 14 or Oehler in: Jahrbuch d. Sammlung Kippenberg 5 (1925). p. 88.). For example, the frontispiece lacks the foliage arrangement, and the loving couple are in mirror image, the face of the snake charmer on the title page is less heavily accentuated and the branches of the tree somewhat simpler, and in the final vignette parts of the scenery disappear into the tree foliage. Apparently it would seem that this copy was a proof copy, whose unsatisfactory illustrations led to corrections. Slightly browned throughout (frontispiece and title more intensively), first and last leaved browned at inner margins. Book-block slightly broken, last leaves with worm-track to inner margins. A good copy with very rare engravings. Goed. IV 1, 582, 3; Borst 231 (mentioning zwo different title vignettes); Brieger 1315; Rümann 1148; Lanck./Oehler II, S. 195; Wilp./G. ²2; Hayn-G.

[German literature, Wieland]

WINKELMANN (Winckelmann), Giovanni [= Johann Joachim].
Storia delle arti del disegno presso gli antichi ...Tradotta dal tedesco con note originali degli editori. Tomo primo ( - tomo secondo).

Milano, Monastero di S. Ambrogio Maggiore 1779. 4to. LXIV, 347; 355, (5) pp. 18 engraved plates (6 fold.), numerous text engravings, medallions and vignettes. Modern cloth. First Italian edition of Winckelmann’s main work “Geschichte der Kunst des Altertums”. Johann Joachim Winckelmann (b. 1717 in Stendal, he was murdered in Trieste while on his way back to Vienna from Rome in 1768) is considered the founder of modern Archeology and comparative art history. After studying Theology and Medicine and a number of years as private tutor, Winckelmann became secretary and librarian to Graf Brünau in Nötheniz, near Dresden, in 1748, with the task of collecting material for the Graf's planned history of the Roman Empire. Hence, his first intensive contact with ancient history took place in Dresden. In 1755 he published the „Gedanken über die Nachahmung der Griechischen Werke in der Mahlerey und Bildhauer-Kunst“ and in the same year moved to Rome where he worked as a librarian and from 1763 he was President of the Antiquities in the library of the Vatican. From his comprehensive studies of ancient art in Rome, Florence and Naples emerged, amongst other works, his „Geschichte der Kunst des Alterthums“ (2 parts, 1764). „The only way for us to become great or even, where posssible, unique, is to copy the ancients, and what is said of Homer, that whosoever learned to admire him, who learned to understand him, is also valid for the art of the ancients, and especially that of the ancient Greeks.“ These words of Winckelmann's were the motto for a complete epoch; imitation to be understood in the style of Cicero, that understanding of prior examples represented a particular level of education, which then enabled one to produce their own creative work. This appropriation of the antique world, so important for the times, took place „through his (Winckelmanns) eyes, and his influence was perceptible throughout the 19th century“ (Ueding). Crisp copy on strong, light blue paper (last 63 lvs. of vol. 2 on different paper and browned) with wide margins. Stamp to half-title of vol. 1.Goed. IV/1, 301, 12; Graesse VII, 461; Brunet V, 1463; Cicognara 59.
