        An original Smithsonian artifact and exceptional piece of American history, this steel bolt was part of the original White House, removed during Teddy Roosevelt?s 1902 renovation!

      "Steel bolt approximately 17? long and 3? inches wide at its thicket point, with the words ?White House / 1792-1902? etched onto the bolt itself. Washington, DC, circa 1800. Display stand included. Fine Condition. Full color photocopy of the original tag included, on which reads, ?Smithso... / Was...? On the verso it has the list of previous owners, beginning with ?Mrs. Charles Walcott,? and including ?Mrs. Cole Younger,? and ?CJ Younger.?Relics gathered from the Truman administration?s renovation are relatively common and are likely of materials produced far later than this bolt, which was removed during Teddy Roosevelt?s renovations, forty-eight years earlier. This is the only one from Roosevelt?s renovation that we have seen.Charles Walcott (1850-1927) was a famous American paleontologist, who served as the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution from 1907 until his death, twenty years later. A staunch conservationist, Walcott served as an advisor to Teddy Roosevelt during his presidency, and thus developed a relationship which resulted in Roosevelt giving Walcott this piece of the original White House.Construction began on the White House in 1792, directed by the Irish-born architect James Hoban. However, it was burned during the War of 1812, in 1814. Hoban was selected to rebuild the Executive Mansion, and in 1817 James Monroe moved in. During Monroe?s tenure, the South Portico was constructed, and Andrew Jackson added the North Portico in 1829. Although there were many plans and designs to expand or even construct a new White House, none of these were realized until the it was renovated by Theodore Roosevelt in 1902, when this piece was removed, thus setting the age of the piece between one hundred eight-five and two hundred twenty-two years old.Roosevelt?s renovation relocated the president?s offices from the second floor to the new, but temporary, Executive Office Building, which is now known as the West Wing. The world-renowned New York architectural firm, McKim, Meade and White, executed Roosevelt?s renovation. Charles McKim personally oversaw the project, and in an effort to move away from Victorian architecture towards Federal, stripped the Mansion of the majority of its original floors as well as covered the old walls with new plaster. McKim also removed the original grand stair in Cross Hall ?" which in the modern era is the north part of the State Dining Room. To keep up with technology, he added bathrooms on the second floor as well as an elevator and electric lights to replace the ancient gas lamps."

Overall a very good set. Proclus, 410?–485, Neoplatonic philosopher, b. Constantinople. He studied at Alexandria and at Athens, where he was a pupil of the Platonist Syrianus, whom he succeeded as a teacher. "Proclus' distinctively non-empirical approach towards physics and astronomy also influences his philosophy of mathematics, which is set out in the two prologues to his commentary on the first book of Euclid's Elements. The first prologue deals with the mathematical sciences in general, while the second prologue focuses on geometry proper. Proclus argues in great detail that the objects of mathematical sciences cannot be derived from sensible particulars by means of abstraction. Because of the imperfect and deficient character of the sensible objects one cannot derive from them objects that are as perfect and as precise as mathematical objects are. Therefore, mathematical objects reside primarily in intellect and secondarily in souls (as logoi). As universal concepts (cf. 3.2) we can grasp mathematical objects by means of recollection (anamnêsis). Since geometrical objects are not universal, but particulars, and since by definition they possess extension, Proclus argues that their place is human imagination (phantasia). Imagination acts as a mirror and provides the mathematical objects which are projected into it by the soul with intelligible matter. By means of the latter geometrical objects gain extension and particularity. As with physics and astronomy, the ultimate aim of geometry is not the study of these extended, material objects. Rather, geometry serves an anagogical task (just as in Plato's Republic), leading the soul upwards to a study of the true and unextended causes of geometrical objects in the divine mind (In Eucl. 54.14–56.22).

        LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES OU LETTRES RECUEILLIESDANS UNE SOCIETE ET PUBLIEES POUR L'INSTRUCTION DE QUELQUES AUTRES

      GENEVE, 1792. In 16. Dim. 14x9,5 cm. Pp. XXII+245, 233+(1), 225+(1), 250. Rara prima edizione illustrata del 1792 del noto romanzo epistolare "Les liaisons dangereuses" ("Le relazioni pericolose" trasposte anche nella nota versione cinematografica con Michelle Pfeiffer, Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Uma Thurman) scritto da Pierre Choderlos de Laclos (1741-1803) a lungo considerato scandaloso a livello di Marchese de Sade o Nicolas Edme Retif. L'opera, in una serie di lettere scabrose talvolta libertine, descrive la storia del Marchese de Merteuil e Visconte di Valmont, due rivali (ed ex amanti) che usano il sesso come arma per umiliare e degradare gli altri. Pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1782 ebbe un notevole successo con la vendita di mille copie nel solo primo mese. L'opera è sprovvista del nome dell'autore e dell'editore con buona probabilità per motivi di censura a causa del contenuto ritenuto eccessivamente libertino per l'epoca, è infatti tuttora considerato il primo romanzo a larga diffusione in cui siano stati adombrati rapporti omosessuali maschili e femminili. L'opera è composta da quattro tomi ed è completa. Il testo è impreziosito da otto finissime incisioni di Le Barbier. In buone condizioni Copertina in mezza pelle con tassello in pelle al dorso in buone condizioni generali con lievi usure ai margini e dorso. Legatura in discrete condizioni con qualche rottura. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con rare fioriture. Errore di numerazione al tomo primo: la numerazione pasa da pag. 180 a 201 senza alcuna perdita di testo. Scarce first illustrated edition of 1792 of the famous epistolar novel "Les liaisons dangereuses" (following the famous movies with Michelle Pfeiffer, Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Uma Thurman) written by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos (1741-1803) for a long considered scandalous as Marquise de Sade or Nicolas Edme Retif. The work, in a series of libertine letters, describes the history of Marquise de Merteuil and Viscount di Valmont, two rivals (and ex lovers) using sex as a weapon to umiliate and degradate others. Published for the first time in 1782 had a huge success with the selling of 1000 copies in the first month.The work is without the name of author and editor probably for censorship reasons due to the libertine contain of the work, and it is still considered the first novel at broad spread taking into consideration male and female homosexual relationships. The work is made up of four tomes and it is complete. The text is enriched by eight very fine prints by Le Barbier. In good conditions. Half leather cover with spine title leather label in good general conditions slightly worn in the edges and spine. Binding in fair conditions with some crack. Inside pages are in very good conditions with occasional foxings. Faults in numbering in first tome: numbering from pag. 180 to 201 with no loss of text.

Side-stitched and oversewn in contemporary paper wrappers with a pink surface stain.

      Jacobus Ermerins, Eenige Zeeuwsche oudheden, 3 (1792), pp. 219-220; not in Arents; Cat. Provinciale Bibliotheek van Zeeland; KVK & WorldCat; Cat. Goldsmith; NCC; STCN. Only copy located of the first and only edition of Veere ordinances concerning the Goedeluiden Guild or St. Jans Guild, two names for the same guild, whose members worked as porters, carrying peat, wood, sacks of various kinds of goods, etc., especially but not exclusively as dock workers loading and unloading ships. Besides its obvious importance for the local history of Veere and its extensive overseas shipping trade, the book gives remarkably detailed information about labour organisation, wages and workers' rights that may reflect general practice in other parts of the Dutch Republic. From 1441 to 1799, Veere had a special staple contract with Scotland, granting the city a monopoly on all Scottish goods. The second work therefore adds documents explicitly concerning Scottish shipping and goods coming in from or via Scotland. We have located only one other edition of any of these ordinances, a 1687 edition of the ordinance of that year (pp. 45-49 in the present edition), also known only from a single copy. Ermerins, writing in 1792, refers to many of the documents transcribed here and adds, "alle door de zorg en oplettenheid van wylen den heer Mr. Johannis Marinissen, in der tyd overdeken van dezen gilde, door den druk gemeen gemaakt" (all published in print through the care and attention of the late Master Johannis Marinissen, then director [literally chief deacon] of this guild). In very good condition and with generous margins, with only the title-page slightly spotted and slightly dirty. The wrappers are tattered, primarily on and near the spine.

        Anti-Hoffmann. 2 Hefte (alles Erschienene). 106 S., 1 Bl. Druckfehler, 2 w. Bl.; 93 S. Bedruckte Orig.-Broschuren (etwas fleckig und angestaubt).

      Wien, In Comission bey Stahel, (1792).. . Äußerst seltene erste Ausgabe dieser Kampfschrift gegen Leopold Alois Hoffmann, den berüchtigten Zensor und Herausgeber des bedeutendsten konservativen Organs der Zeit, der 'Wiener Zeitschrift', die ab 1792 erschien. Hoffmann war bereits im ersten Heft dieser Zeitschrift gegen den "jetzigen Freiheitstaumel in Europa" zu Felde gezogen, gegen eine "zügellose Aufklärung", deren "Früchte die Empörungen und Aufwiegeleien gutmüthiger Nationen wider ihre Souveräne, alle politischen Gährungen und der heutige Unglauben aller Arten" seien. Alxinger (1755-1797), seinerzeit Sekretär am Wiener Hoftheater, weist die unqualifizierten Angriffe, Verdächtigungen und Denunziationen Hoffmanns zurück, denn er hält es "für die Pflicht des Patrioten, des Menschenfreundes ... öffentlich gegen Sie (Hoffmann) aufzutreten, gegen Sie, der meine rechtschaffenen Landsleute vor der Welt und dem Monarchen verdächtig machen, die Regierungen gegen die Schriftsteller aufhetzen, die größten Pfeiler der Aufklärung, Denk- und Preßfreiheit umstürzen, und eine allgemeine Verdunkelung verbreiten möchte" (I S. 105). Revolutionen würden keinefalls von "Büchern und geheimen Gesellschaften" verursacht, sondern "nur durch das höchste Elend, durch Furcht vor Gewaltthätigkeiten, durch Ehrsucht, durch Fanatismus." Im zweiten Heft mit dem Untertitel "und Gott gebe! letztes Stück" analysiert Alxinger sorgfältig die ersten drei Hefte der 'Wiener Zeitschrift'. Alxinger benutzt eine eingehende Sprach- und Stilanalyse als Ausgangspunkt seiner politischen Polemik. - Titel von Heft 2 mit zeitgenöss. handschriftl.

        Memoirs of the life of the late Charles Lee, Esq. Lieutenant Colonel of the Forty Fourth Regiment, Colonel in the Portuguese service, Major General, and aide-de-camp to the King of Poland, and second in command in the service of the United States of America during the Revolution: to which are added his political and military essays; also, letters to, and from many distinguished characters, both in Europe and America

      Dublin: Printed for Messrs. P. Byrne, J. Moore, W. M'Kenzie, W. Jones, A Grueber, J. Rice and R. M'Alister, 1792 - When the Revolutionary General Charles Lee (1832-1782) married the daughter of a Seneca chief, he was given the honorary name "Boiling Water," an apt sobriquet for this wild, eccentric, and contradictory man. Born in England, Lee served the King of Poland and the British army before eventually fighting for the American colonists against British rule. According to the DAB, "Early in the war, his military experience and radical Whig republicanism were useful in mobilizing Americans to resist the power of the mighty British Empire. However, as time went on, this same political radicalism, combined with Lee's erratic personality and the growing indications that his military genius was overrated, made him more of a liability than an asset." In fact, evidence eventually emerged in the 19th century which has led some historians to believe that, during his brief captivity by the British in 1776, Lee provided General Howe with information on how to defeat the Continental army, and in doing so, betrayed his country. Lee's erratic behavior, his open show of disrespect to Washington, and above all, his retreat at the Battle of Monmouth in 1778, led to his eventual court-martial and suspension for one year. Lee published his own "Vindication" in 1778, in which he was so abusive to Washington that he was challenged to a duel and wounded by Col. John Laurens. Soured on public service forever, he retired in disgrace to his Virginia farm and died in Philadelphia in 1782. This first Dublin edition of Langworthy's attempt to make sense of Lee was published in the same year as the London editions, and seems to be a paginary reprint. It contains a 70-page memoir of Lee by Edward Langworthy himself, and collects Lee's essays and correspondence with the various great men of his day - - including Hume, John Hancock, and George Washington. Howes attributes the editorship of this work to Thomas Paine, working under the direction of Langworthy. Whatever the case, it remains the first attempt to tell the still controversial story of "one of the most extraordinary and contradictory characters in American history." - DAB (LEE, CHARLES) First Dublin edition. 8vo. xii, 439 pp. Full blue morocco in period style.

        The Sportsman's Return

      Published by Thomas Macklin, Poet's Gallery, Fleet Street, London 1792 - Colour-printed mezzotint. In fair condition with the exception of being trimmed within the plate mark and remargined. Image size: 17 15/16 x 23 9/16 inches. A nice colour printed impression of Ward's idyllic print, a fond reflection of English rural life, after a painting by George Morland. A hunter shows off the hare he has just shot to a shoe repair man, who has a neat little adjunct to the tavern, in which he can sit but not stand up. Another man ties up his horse. It seems to be a moment chosen almost at random in the pleasant life that surrounds the country public house. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.

        An Act for Regulating Processes in the Courts of the United States.

      1792 - First Printing of the Process and Compensation Act: A Landmark in the Development of the Federal Court System [United States]. An Act for Regulating Processes in the Courts of the United States, and Providing Compensations for the Officers of the Said Courts, and for Jurors and Witnesses. [Philadelphia, Printed by Childs and Swaine, 1792]. [4] pp. Folio (13-1/2" x 8-1/2"). Removed, untrimmed edges. Toned, some browning to outer edges of margins, a few small damp spots, "No 15" in fine early hand to foot of p. 1., otherwise very good. * "Perhaps the most pressing judicial issue facing the Second Congress was the need for some more detailed regulation of federal process and procedure. The Process Act of 1789, which had been intended as a stopgap measure, left most of these questions to be settled by reference to the practice of the various states. This temporary solution resulted in inequities. Some of these inequities, such as the inadequacy of state fees for service of process, had been addressed by the Compensation and Circuit Court Act of 1791. But because the 1791 act had not established uniform federal fees for judicial personnel, such as clerks, their compensation still varied widely from state to state. Faced with the expiration of the 1791 act in May 1792, the Senate appointed a committee to draft a bill providing compensation for judicial officers, jurors, and witnesses on November 1, 1791. The committee consisted of John Henry of Maryland, Caleb Strong of Massachusetts, and James Monroe of Virginia. Despite the committee's limited mandate, on January 26, 1792, Henry reported a bill that also touched on judicial process. Its first two sections essentially reenacted the Process Act of 1789, with two changes. Section 1 directed that court seals were to be provided at the expense of the United States (a point not specified in the 1789 act), and section 2 Omitted the direction that fees in the federal courts were to be determined by the fees allowed in the highest courts of the respective states. The remaining section specified, among other things, some of the fees that were to prevail in the federal system" (Marcus and Perry). Two states noted. One, unrecorded, has the statement of deposition on p. [4]: "Deposited Among the Rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State: Secretary of State." Ours is a copy of th [Attributes: First Edition]

        COLLECTIONS FOR AN HISTORY OF SANDWICH IN KENT, WITH NOTICES OF THE OTHER CINQUE PORTS AND MEMBERS, AND OF RICHBOROUGH.

      Printed for the Author by Simmons, Kirkby and Jones., Canterbury 1792 - 4to. 8.5 x 10.5 inches. 2 vols bound in one [10] + viii + 877 pp.+ [vii] pp. including the rare preliminary subscribers' list (that was usually cancelled by the binder and discarded). There are two breaks in the sequence of the register where one section adjoins another but the pagination indicates that the work is complete. The title page is erroneously dated 1892 as always. Bound in early half black morocco over marbled boards with gilt decorated spine. Marbled endpapers. Some slight foxing here and there and offsetting of the plates as usual but a fine example. Inscription of 'S. Denne. A Kind Present from my Friend the revd. Rd. Harvey, vicar of St Laurence in Thanet.' The subscriber's list records that the Rev. Richard Harvey ordered two copies. Loosely inserted into the text are several notes on the text presumably in the hand of the Rev. S. Denne, including one with his address at Wilmington, Kent with a manuscript extract from The New Annual Register, 1788, and another with an extract from the Kentish Gazette, 1792 Illustrated by 52 engravings, of which 45 are full page including frontispiece, some folding and pedigrees and 10 are maps and plans. The plates are dated 1786-91. The rare history of Sandwich compiled by William Boys (1735-1803) - surgeon to the seamen of Deal and the Goodwin Sands. Boys assembled a remarkable archive of material on the town of Sandwich and the surrounding towns and villages which eventually evolved into this history. Complete copies are rare. Perhaps the finest Kentish town History. This volume was the property of Rev. S. Denne of Wilmington. The lists of subscribers and additional subscribers give a total of 285 copies. It includes all the luminaries of Kent, famous historians and notables elsewhere including William Pitt and Thomas Pennant. At the end is a section on natural history which includes two notable plates of birds occurring at Sandwich the Pigmy Curlew, dedicated to Thomas Pennant, which is no longer recognised by ornithologists under that name and is considered to be the the rare curlew sandpiper and the Sandwich Tern, first identified as a species by John Latham of Dartford, also a subscriber, who named it Sterna Boysii after the author.
