HIS FIRST BOOK — BEFORE HE ENTERED THE TRADE

Tables Chronologiques.

Strassburg, [F. Levrault] for J.F. Stein 1772.

4to. [iv]p. and [2], VI, XII DOUBLE-PAGE TABLES.

Contemporary calf-backed and tipped speckled paper boards (defective), flat spine and morocco label gilt, red edges.

Only Edition: ready reference for law students. Indeed, Salzmann drafted the Tables while obtaining his doctorate at Strassburg. The first table frames ancient (B.C.E.), the second modern (C.E.). The next six treat ancient history in three to eight columns, and the last twelve tables bring the reader to 1771, displaying information in eight to fourteen columns. We find Gutenberg’s “invention” of printing (at Strassburg, of course), the Spanish exploration of the New World, battles, treatises, assassinations, revolutions, etc., often with source citations.
     For two years Salzmann served as a private tutor before returning to Strassburg and buying an academic book shop and printing business, which specialized in German Enlightenment political, literary and philosophical writers. I have not located a copy in North America. Nicely printed, internally fresh, contemporary manuscript label of A.M. Macault de La Cosne.
