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

      1792. [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."

        Versuch einer Critik aller Offenbarung (Attempt at a Critique of All Revelation).

      Hartungschen Buchhandlung, Königsberg 1792 - TP + [1]-182, Octavo. First Edition, First Issue. (Lauth/Jacob 2a; Baumgartner/Jacobs A1.2?x)First Edition of Fichte's First Book - Popularly Attributed to Kant as His Fourth Critik. With title-vignette by Johann Wilhelm Meil. The first printing of the first edition, without the author's name on the title page and without the introduction. Fichte's first work, which was published anonymously. Fichte was impressed by Kant and strongly influenced by his transcendental philosophy. He went to meet the great philosopher in person but was inititally received very cooly. So he wrote the present work in five short weeks applying Kant's ethical theory of duty to the interpretation of religion and submitted it to Kant as a way of gaining the philosopher's favor. The book met with Kant's approval and he found a publisher for the manuscript. By mistake, Fichte's name and the preface were omitted in the first printing and the book was popularly attributed to Kant. It was thought that this was Kant's fourth Critik, a fact that helped gain Fichte a wide and admiring readership. Subsequently, the work was reviewed favorably in the "Jenaische Literaturzeitung" - the critic claiming that Kant's style was unmistakable. This prompted Kant to publish a statement on July 3, 1792 naming Fichte as the real author, who became instantly famous. Among those who admired the book was Goethe who in 1794 secured Fichte a position teaching philosophy at the University of Jena in Weimar. Contemproary speckled brown pasteboards titled with gilt lettering on a yellow field. The side of the rear board is filled with a contemporary handwritten quote from the Intelligentblatt of 1792 referring to this book. A remarkably well-preserved, tight and clean copy of Fichte's first book. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Della Specola Astronomica de’ Regi Studi di Palermo Libri Quattro.

      Reale Stamperia, Palermo 1792 - A fine copy, uncut in the original boards, of Piazzi’s account of the Palermo Observatory, which he established, and where he made the observations that led to his discovery, on January 1, 1801, of the minor planet Ceres. Specola Astronomica includes Piazzi’s description of the astronomical instruments he had commissioned and assembled for the Palermo Observatory, the most famous of which was Jesse Ramsden’s vertical circle, illustrated on the plates in this volume. A "large theodolite-type instrument was the 5-foot vertical circle which Ramsden made for Piazzi’s new observatory at Palermo. Both Ramsden and Piazzi worked at this instrument, twice abandoned before its completion in August, 1789. The horizontal circle gave readings in azimuth read by a micrometer microscope, and the vertical, readings in altitude by two diametrically opposed microscopes. The divisions on the circles were illuminated by an inclined silver mirror fixed to each microscope, and the wires in the telescope eyepiece by transmitting light from a small instrument through the hollow tube-axis – two Ramsden innovations. This instrument, the finest complete circle hitherto made, formed the basis of Piazzi’s astronomical work. With it he catalogued nearly 8000 stars, compiled a valuable table of refractions, and attempted to measure the parallax of several bright stars. The great labour involved in the catalogue is the more remarkable when we consider that each star was observed several times before its position was decided" (King, History of the Telescope, pp. 166-8, with the circle illustrated). Summoned in 1780 by the viceroy of Sicily to fill the chair of higher mathematics at the Academy of Palermo, Piazzi was encouraged to establish an astronomical observatory, "and toward the end of the 1780s Piazzi went to England in order to obtain the best possible equipment. "In England, Piazzi met Maskelyne, William Herschel, and Ramsden The most important result of Piazzi’s English visit was the great five-foot vertical circle, a masterpiece of eighteenth-century technology, that he commissioned from Ramsden. It was installed in the observatory in the Santa Ninfa tower of the royal palace of Palermo in 1789, and is still preserved there. The Palermo observatory opened in 1790, and Piazzi was appointed its director, a post that he retained for most of the rest of his life. "Having returned to Palermo, Piazzi took up the problem of the precise determination of the astronomical coordinates (direct ascension and declination) of the principal stars. Palermo was then the southernmost European observatory, and the favourable climatic conditions that it provided allowed him to study more stars than had been previously catalogued, with a greater degree of accuracy" (DSB). Piazzi published two additional parts of this work, but without plates, in 1794 and 1806. Lalande, p. 622 ("Ce grand et précieux ouvrage"). Folio (370 x 255 mm), pp. xxxii, 240 and 4 folding engraved plates (the first plate showing Ramsden’s vertical circle measures 650 x 470 mm). Uncut and completely untouched in the original carta rustica, a very fine, fresh, and crisp copy. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autographed Document Signed

      New York, 1792. unbound. The New York Presidential Electors Endorse the Ratification of "The Presidential Succession Act of 1792," the first comprehensive law establishing a line of succession to the Presidency of the United States, written in part due to George Washington's health crisis the previous year. Many historians refer to this amendment as the most important document guaranteeing the uninterrupted service of American Government. Outstanding and historically important original draft autographed document signed with five words corrected, comprising Sections: 2, 3, 6, 7, and 8 of the original amendment, endorsed by all eleven Presidential Electors from New York State, including signer William Floyd. Legal format with run-on sentences, 4to, 2 pages, 1792, New York. In part: " . . . Whereas it is provided by an act of the United States entitled "An act relative to the Election of the President and Vice President of the United States and declaring the officer who shall act as President in case of vacancies in the Offices both of President and Vice President, that the Electors in each State shall make and sign three certificates of all the votes by them given and shall seal up the same certifying on each that a list of the votes of such State - for President & Vice President is contained therein and shall by writing under their hands or under the hands of the majority of them - appoint a person to take charge of and deliver to the President of the Senate at the seat of Government before the first day of January - then next, ensuing one of the said Certificates . . . " In a subsequent section, the document says, "It is therein further provided that if any person appointed to deliver the votes of the Electors to the President of the Senate shall after accepting of his appointment neglect to perform the services required of him by this Act, he shall forfeit the sum of one thousand dollars . . . In the case there shall be no President of the Senate at the seat of Government on the arrival of the person(s) entrusted with the lists of votes of the Electors, then such person(s) shall deliver the lists of the votes in their custody into the office of the Secretary of State.%u201D Signed in full by several prominent Revolutionary War patriots (the majority being Officers) including: William Floyd, a Revolutionary War General, member of the Continental Congress, and signer of the Declaration of Independence; Samuel Osgood, an Aide-de-Camp to General Artemas Ward, hero at Battle of Lexington & Concord, and First Postmaster General of the U.S.; Abraham Ten Eyck, an early protester of the Stamp Act, a member of the Committee of Correspondence, and Albany militia officer; David Van Ness %u2013 a Revolutionary War Officer and Brig. General of the Duchess County militia; Volkert Veeder, a Lt.

General; Johannis Bruyn, a Revolutionary War patriot, politiciana and distinguished judge. Also signed by John Bay and Edward Savage. All eleven Presidential Electors cast their votes for George Washington and Gov. George Clinton, no doubt because of the strong influence of the Society of the Cincinnati, to which many Electors had strong associations and allegiances. This remarkable and rare document is boldly signed and is in excellent condition.

        The Marches of The British Armies in the Peninsula of India during the Campaigns of 1790 and 1791

      London: W. Bulmer and Co. for the Author,, 1792. Illustrated and Explained by Reference to a Map, Compiled from Authentic Documents transmitted by Earl Cornwallis from India by Major Rennell. Octavo. Recent sprinkled half calf, marbled boards, red morocco label, low bands, foliate tool to the compartments. Folding plan of the Battle of Seringapatam, more properly Arakere, and 3 folding Orders of Battle. Small professional repair to the fore-edge of the title page, no loss of text, light browning, else very good. Second edition, same year as the first. Third Anglo-Mysore War. Uncommon, and detailed account drawn from official accounts of Cornwallis and Medows's campaigns against Tipu Sultan down to the Battle of Arakere in May 1791. Tipu's army was routed and retreated into Seringapatam, but the British forces were forced to return to Bangalore by the problems of supply that had dogged the entire campaign. The map referred to on the title page was issued separately, and is "lacking" from all copies listed on OCLC, which locates just a single copy, the India Office Records copy in BL. "The father of Indian geography", Rennell served with both the East India Company's marine and military as surveyor and draughtsman, in the 1780s producing a series of maps, atlases and memoranda which were much reprinted and set the standard for future works.

        Autographed Document Signed

      New York 1792 - The New York Presidential Electors Endorse the Ratification of "The Presidential Succession Act of 1792," the first comprehensive law establishing a line of succession to the Presidency of the United States, written in part due to George Washington's health crisis the previous year. Many historians refer to this amendment as the most important document guaranteeing the uninterrupted service of American Government. Outstanding and historically important original draft autographed document signed with five words corrected, comprising Sections: 2, 3, 6, 7, and 8 of the original amendment, endorsed by all eleven Presidential Electors from New York State, including signer William Floyd. Legal format with run-on sentences, 4to, 2 pages, 1792, New York. In part: " . . . Whereas it is provided by an act of the United States entitled "An act relative to the Election of the President and Vice President of the United States and declaring the officer who shall act as President in case of vacancies in the Offices both of President and Vice President, that the Electors in each State shall make and sign three certificates of all the votes by them given and shall seal up the same certifying on each that a list of the votes of such State - for President & Vice President is contained therein and shall by writing under their hands or under the hands of the majority of them - appoint a person to take charge of and deliver to the President of the Senate at the seat of Government before the first day of January - then next, ensuing one of the said Certificates . . . " In a subsequent section, the document says, "It is therein further provided that if any person appointed to deliver the votes of the Electors to the President of the Senate shall after accepting of his appointment neglect to perform the services required of him by this Act, he shall forfeit the sum of one thousand dollars . . . In the case there shall be no President of the Senate at the seat of Government on the arrival of the person(s) entrusted with the lists of votes of the Electors, then such person(s) shall deliver the lists of the votes in their custody into the office of the Secretary of State.%u201D Signed in full by several prominent Revolutionary War patriots (the majority being Officers) including: William Floyd, a Revolutionary War General, member of the Continental Congress, and signer of the Declaration of Independence; Samuel Osgood, an Aide-de-Camp to General Artemas Ward, hero at Battle of Lexington & Concord, and First Postmaster General of the U.S.; Abraham Ten Eyck, an early protester of the Stamp Act, a member of the Committee of Correspondence, and Albany militia officer; David Van Ness %u2013 a Revolutionary War Officer and Brig. General of the Duchess County militia; Volkert Veeder, a Lt. Colonel during the Revolutionary War taking part in battles in upstate New York; Abraham Yates, a member of the Continental Congress; Samuel Clark, who was listed in Hague%u2019s as being a Minuteman during the Revolutionary War; Jesse Woodhull, a distinguished Colonel during the Revolutionary War who later became a Brig. General; Johannis Bruyn, a Revolutionary War patriot, politiciana and distinguished judge. Also signed by John Bay and Edward Savage. All eleven Presidential Electors cast their votes for George Washington and Gov. George Clinton, no doubt because of the strong influence of the Society of the Cincinnati, to which many Electors had strong associations and allegiances. This remarkable and rare document is boldly signed and is in excellent condition.

        Ueber das Verhältniß der Mainzer gegen die Franken. Gesprochen in der Gesellschaft der Volksfreunde, den 15ten November 1792.

      39 S. Rückenbroschur. Fiedler 246. - Sehr seltener Erstdruck der berühmten Rede Georg Forsters vor dem Jakobinerklub im Mainzer Schloss, die ihn über Nacht zu einem der meist gehassten, aber auch bewunderten Menschen Deutschlands machte. Forster bezeichnet den Rhein als natürliche Grenze Frankreichs und nimmt Partei für die Ideale der Französischen Revolution. Das am 21. Oktober 1792 durch die französische Revolutionsarmee unter Führung von General Custine besetzte Mainz sieht sich vor einem großen gesellschaftlichem Umbruch: Forster ruft die Mainzer auf, die von Frankreich angebotene Freiheit von Fürstenwillkür anzunehmen und sich eine republikanische Verfassung zu geben. In der kurz darauf gegründeten Mainzer Republik werden im Februar und März 1793 die ersten demokratischen Wahlen auf deutschem Boden stattfinden. - Titel verso mit etwas durchschlagendem Stempel, darüber ein kleines Adelsexlibris. Leicht braunfleckig, insgesamt sehr gutes Exemplar!

        LE PARADIS PERDU

      Paris: Chez Defer de Maisonneuve, 1792. First Edition with these Plates . Hardcover. Especially Pleasing Wide-Margined Contemporary Copy of a "Very Famous Beautiful" Edition of "Paradise Lost" 346 x 251 mm (13 5/8 x 9 7/8"). Two volumes. First Edition with these Plates. EXCELLENT CONTEMPORARY MARBLED CALF, covers with delicate gilt frame of flower-and-ribbon band flanked by cresting rolls, flat spines gilt in compartments with volute cornerpieces and large and ornate urn centerpiece inside a lozenge of gilt dots, each spine with a red and green morocco label, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt (tops of spines possibly with very expert repairs). 12 FINE STIPPLE-ENGRAVED PLATES PRINTED IN COLOR ON HEAVY TEXTURED PAPER AND FINISHED BY HAND, the plates engraved by various artists after Schall. Original tissue guards. With English text and French translation on facing pages. Cohen-de Ricci 708; Lewine, p. 358; Ray, p. 145; Fuerstenberg, p. 122. Joints and extremities with minor wear, covers with many superficial scratches, but the very attractive original bindings solid, lustrous, and generally well preserved. A few marginal tears of no consequence, one plate with small marginal ink stain, isolated rust spots, mild foxing, minor marginal smudges and other trivial imperfections, but an extremely pleasing copy internally, the leaves clean and fresh, the margins considerably more than ample, and the plates bright and richly colored. Fuerstenberg calls this a "very famous beautiful edition," and Ray says that it is one of the finest examples of color printing done at the end of the 18th century. The plates were produced using the poupée printing technique, also known as dolly printing. This process is described by Béguin as "an intaglio plate coulour printing technique" which "consists in applying some ink on the plate and spreading it out with one's finger tip wrapped up in a strip of cloth. This printing technique . . . allows the printer to put several colours on the same plate contemporaneously." According to the National Gallery of Art, "The method takes its name from the poupée (doll), the small ball-shaped wad of fabric that is used to ink the plate." The plates vary in their emotional intensity, but the illustration of Adam and Eve in their bower of bliss has a pleasing mixture of innocence and sensuality, and the final engraving, depicting the departure from paradise, conveys strong feelings of pathos, danger, and despair. The book's stately pages, high quality paper, and impressive illustrations appropriately reflect the content here, and the excellent condition of the present copy, especially with its spacious margins, is a bonus.

        Opera

      London,: Payne and Edwards, 1792-, 1793.. Two volumes, quarto, with a portrait frontispiece; spine of one volume slightly chipped, joints a little split but quite firm, nonetheless a splendid set in contemporary tree calf, flat spines with gilt panelling, red and green morocco labels. Fine and scholarly printing of Horace: 'a very magnificent and valuable edition; the text of which is formed chiefly on that of Gesner' (Moss, Manual of Classical Bibliography).A contemporary evaluation in the Critical Review of 1796 applauds the quality of this edition: 'With regard to the typographical merits of the present work, they must be acknowledged to be great. It is printed on fine wove paper; the type is excellent, and the press-work is extremely clear and neat. The margin is also spacious, and the arrangement such as does the printers much credit.'One of the most beloved Roman poets, Horace is cherished for his elegant poetry and robust satire, combining humorous self-reflection with philosophy: 'His style is rather to tell the truth through laughter, and not only to show others the way but also to work at improving himself and making himself more acceptable to his fellow human beings (Oxford Classical Dictionary).Aside from the quality of its printing and composition, the London Horace of 1792-1793 is noted for its exhaustive commentaries. Accordingly, this 'variorum' edition compares and publishes known textual variations (in collating the known texts of Horace the editor consulted the first printed edition of 1470 alongside seven manuscript copies held in the Harleian Collection).

        Manuscript Writ Regarding the Arrest of an Ohio Pioneer, Signed by Sheriff Col. E. Sproat & Others

      Marietta, 1792. Manuscript capias from the Court of Common Pleas, for Washington County, Ohio, for the detainment and conveyance to the court, of an individual associated with the Ohio Company. Qto. Single leaf, written recto and verso, measuring approximately 12 x 7.5 inches. Document is signed in the original by two important parties, the clerk and the first sheriff of Ohio Territory. Some foxing, fraying to edges and creases, otherwise in very good condition, with red wax seal in tact. A succinct manuscript court document involving several key figures who settled and founded the city of Marietta, as representatives of the Ohio Company, evidently finding themselves at odds before the court. Soliciting the arrest of a man of the Ohio Company, for charges being laid by another man from the company, executed and signed by two contemporary associates of the same company, this record forms an interesting account for the annals of both the city of Marietta and the pioneering Ohio Company of Associates. Curiously, plaintiff Charles Green, defendant Robert Potts, the arresting sheriff Ebenezer Sproat, and signing clerk R.J. Meigs, arrived together on the same day, all with the Ohio Company, at the mouth of the Muskingum River in April 1788. In the court case "Green vs Potts" the plaintiff is claiming from the defendant damages of $400, to which will be added fees and further damages for failing to appear at a first hearing. Sheriff Sproat succeeds with the apprehension, keeps Potts in captivity for a few months, and delivers him to the court in March 1793 for his court appearance. The document is witnessed by Joseph Gilman - first Judge of the Court at Marietta, signed by court clerk (prothonotary) Return Jonathan Meigs, and also signed by the Territory of Ohio's first sheriff Colonel Ebenezer Sproat. .

        The Marches of The British Armies in the Peninsula of India during the Campaigns of 1790 and 1791. Illustrated and Explained by Reference to a Map, Compiled from Authentic Documents transmitted by Earl Cornwallis from India by Major Rennell.

      London: W. Bulmer and Co. for the Author, 1792 - Octavo. Recent sprinkled half calf, marbled boards, red morocco label, low bands, foliate tool to the compartments. Small professional repair to the fore-edge of the title page, no loss of text, light browning, else very good. Folding plan of the Battle of Seringapatam, more properly Arakere, and 3 folding Orders of Battle. Second edition, same year as the first. Third Anglo-Mysore War. Uncommon, and detailed account drawn from official accounts of Cornwallis and Medows's campaigns against Tipu Sultan down to the Battle of Arakere in May 1791. Tipu's army was routed and retreated into Seringapatam, but the British forces were forced to return to Bangalore by the problems of supply that had dogged the entire campaign. The map referred to on the title page was issued separately, and is "lacking" from all copies listed on OCLC, which locates just a single copy, the India Office Records copy in BL. "The father of Indian geography", Rennell served with both the East India Company's marine and military as surveyor and draughtsman, in the 1780s producing a series of maps, atlases and memoranda which were much reprinted and set the standard for future works.

        Gouras conquers at Marathon."

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, with modern colour, of Ioannis Gouras from Peter von Hess's Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez, and below, sails and naval instruments. Joannis Gouras was famous for fighting alongside Odysseus Androutsos at the Battle of Vassilika, near Thermopylae. Later he would arrest Androutsos during the civil war that broke out between the various factions. Image bright and clean; light spotting to blank borders. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig's request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders. Not in Blackmer ,Droulia or Contominas. Philhellenic Gouras at Marathon.

        Andrew Kippis, D.D. F.R.S. & S.A

      London,: Thos. Macklin, 20 October, 1792.. Stipple engraving, 290 x 210 mm., very good. An uncommon portrait of Cook's great first biographer, stipple-engraved by the great artist Bartolozzi, famous for his role in producing many of the engravings relating to Cook's third voyage, including a portrait of Cook and the famous separately-issued death scene at Kealekekua.Reverend Andrew Kippis (1725-1795) was an antiquarian and writer who wrote the most important biography of Cook, published in 1788. Like the other two main landlubber writers who worked on Cook's voyages, John Hawkesworth and the Canon John Douglas, Kippis and his biography have attracted some criticism, but its importance to the legacy of Cook is immeasureable, not least because some version remained the standard biography, endlessly reprinted, for over a century.The engraving was made by William Artaud, and is the first portrait of Kippis recorded by the UK National Portrait Gallery.Beddie, 32; Davidson, 'A Book Collector's Notes', p. 67; Hocken, pp. 26-7; Holmes, 69; Kroepelien, 647; Lada-Mocarski, 40; O'Reilly-Reitman, 455.
