        Reports of Cases Argued and Determined in the High Court of Chancery Beginning in the Sittings After Hilary Term 29 Geo. III and Ending in the Sittings After Trinity Term 32 Geo. III A.D. 1792

      P. Byrne, Grafton-Street, Dublin 1793 - First Edition, full calf, red label with gilt titles to spine. Calf rubbed front and rear boards, moderate foxing throughout page block. prior owners names front endpages and title page, front hinge just starting to separate. Contents are unmarked. One of the prior owners, whose name is handwritten 3 times, is "Alfred Balch, Nashville". Balch was a close personal friend and neighboring plantation owner to President Andrew Jackson. He was a practicing lawyer in Nashville, and eventually became head of the Nashville Bar Association. During Andrew Jackson's presidency Balch was appointed to the role of Commissioner of Indian Treaties. During this time he would be active in trying to resolve issues the Creek and Seminole tribes had with the United States government (and may have helped resolve the Second Seminole War). Later in 1840, during the presidency of Martin Van Buren, Jackson would pressure his former vice president to appoint Balch to the role of United States District Judge for the Middle District of Florida, where he would serve as a Florida District Judge for only one year. In 1835 letters appear between Alfred Balch and Andrew Jackson suggesting a level of comfort that only friends would have with one another. In one letter Jackson seems to write angrily about a secret conspiracy to undermine his chosen successor Martin Van Buren. What evidence there is seems to suggest a very close relationship between Andrew Jackson and Alfred Balch.(Balchepedia; the Encyclopedia of Balch History). A great association to Presidential and Tennessee history ! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Essay on the Nature and Constitution of Man; comprehending an Answer to the Following Question, proposed by a Learned Society: "Are there any satisfactory proofs of the Immateriality of the Soul? If such proofs exist, what conclusions are to be formed from them with respect to the Soul’s duration, sensation, and employment, in its state of separation from the Body ?"

      London: Printed and Sold by James Phillips, George Yard, Lombard-Street, M,DCC,XCIII [1793]. 8vo., (lacking half title), xv, 79 pp. Half cream and half marbled paper boards, blue speckled edges, some minor foxing to edges and endpapers; very good copy.First Edition. Little known Romantic Era author Robert Sims, similar to contemporaries such as William Blake, was interested in the nature of the human soul. He attempts a scientific inquiry into the observable existence of the soul by means of the senses, and defends the souls immortality. Sim’s philosophy finds commonality in all religions when it comes to the soul of man, expressing radical viewpoints for the period. ESTC T109873

        Plan of the Attack of the Forts Clinton & Montgomery upon Hudsons River which were Stormed by His Majesty's Forces under the Command of Sir Henry Clinton

      London, 1793. Map. Hand colored engraving. Image measures 25.75" x 19.75" This 1793 Revolutionary War battle plan depicts the Hudson Highlands and extends from Haverstraw Bay and Verplanks Point north to include Fort Montgomery. The map represents an important moment in the American Revolution. This issue of the map, originally published in Banastre Tarleton's "A History of the Campaigns of 1780 & 1781" is from a re-engraving made for Stedman's 1793 "History of the American War." The Hudson River Chain, forged to prevent British ships from using the river, is depicted here stretching from Fort Clinton to West Point. The map documents the dramatic battle plan showing the British attempting to clear the Hudson River of the American rebel forces. British forces with support from ships in the river attacked Fort Clinton and Montgomery. The forts were captured and torn down by the British but caused major delays which led the American forces to win the Battle of Bemis Heights in Saratoga a few days later. The map identifies Fort Montgomery, Fort Clinton, and Fort Independence. British fleets are beautifully illustrated with ships, and are noted with dates of landings. Most striking is the beautifully rendered topography throughout. The map is in good condition with some verso margin repairs. Some wear on original fold lines. Lined with archival paper. Philadelphia-born military historian Charles Stedman was a Loyalist who served under General Cornwallis. After escaping American capture, he published his authoritative two-volume history of the war, which is seen today as the best contemporary account of the Revolution from the British side. This map is a fine example of his work.

Contemporary marbled calf, raised bands to spine, foliate vignettes gilt to compartments between gilt rules, black morocco label, fillet and oak-leaf borders gilt to sides, sprinkled edges, green endpapers, bound purple silk page-marker.

An excellent copy, the contents crisp and fresh and with no trace of the usual offsetting or browning. 14 engraved plates (9 of them views) by Medland, Byrne, Angus and others after Hodges, large folding engraved map of part of Bengal and Bihar. First edition, in a superior Regency binding; a second edition was published the following year. "The first professional landscape artist to visit India and please such tastes [for the picturesque and the sublime] was William Hodges (1744–1797). He went with a highly individual vision and style of painting which had been formed while he was official artist on Captain Cook's second voyage to the Pacific between 1772 and 1775. Hodges had served his apprenticeship with Richard Wilson and had learnt to paint landscapes in the classical tradition, producing calm wooded scenes lit by a soft glow, the foreground peopled with classical figures. With Captain Cook Hodges was suddenly jerked into observing nature in a completely different way "[His] First year in India was disappointing. Hodges's health was poor and the Second Mysore War (1780–84) against Haidar Ali was in progress. This made it impossible for him to explore the countryside of South India freely and he was confined to Madras and its immediate environs. On moving to Calcutta in February 1781, however, he was to travel far more widely through the generosity and patronage of the Governor-General, Warren Hastings, a man of broad culture. "During 1781 Hodges made two tours up-country with him during which he saw the ruins of many Muslim palaces, tombs and mosques. The next year he found a patron in Augustus Cleveland, a liberal administrator stationed at Bhagalpur in Bihar. Touring with him Hodges saw a very different India – the forested tracts inhabited by an aboriginal people, the Paharias. During 1783 he made a long expedition up-country to join Major Brown who was heading a diplomatic embassy to the Mughal Emperor. Hodges was now able to see the great Mughal monuments at Agra and Sikandra. He returned through Central India to Calcutta via Lucknow and left India in November 1783" (Archer & Lightbown, India Observed: India as viewed by British Artists 1760–1860, Victoria and Albert Museum 1982, pp. 8–9).

First published in Livorno in 1764 as Dei Delitti e Delle Pene, this landmark work is, to quote Printing and the Mind of Man, "one of the most influential books in the whole history of criminology. It is significant because it was the first systematic study of the subject. Infused with the spirit of the Enlightenment, its advocacy of crime prevention and the abolition of torture and capital punishment marked a significant advance in criminological thought, which had changed little since the Middle Ages. It had a profound influence on the development of criminal law. It was especially influential among American thinkers, such as Thomas Jefferson, who wished to use Beccaria to reform the system of criminal law Americans inherited from England. The first two American editions were issued Charleston in 1777 and Philadelphia in 1778. Printing and the Mind of Man 209. Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson 2349.

      - "Jean Paul," a much-admired and much-maligned German writer of the Romantic period whose prolific output included such novels as "The Invisible Lodge" (1793), "Hesperus" (1795), "Siebenkäs" (1796-97), "Titan" (1800-03), "The Awkward Age" (1804-05) and many others. ALS in German, 1p, 6¼" X 8", Hof in Vorgtland, Germany, 13 December 1789. Addressed to (in translation) "Highly honored and respected Sir." Very good. Mounting traces along left edge (verso only). An unusually early example, boldly penned in dark brown ink during a period when he was living with his mother and tutoring children in a nearby village; his pseudonymously-published, poorly-received "Selections from the Devil's Papers" was published earlier this same year. In this letter he writes an unnamed publisher that (in translation) "I take the liberty to send you the beginning of a manuscript and beg you to give me your opinion as to its probable acceptance or rejection at your earliest convenience. I have the honor to sign myself with the greatest respect." Boldly signed "J.P.F. Richter." Richter's next book ("The Invisible Lodge") wasn't published until 1793, and parts of it such as "Life of the Cheerful Schoolmaster Maria Wutz" are believed to have been written in 1790, so it's quite possible that he was submitting some other portion of "The Invisible Lodge" with this query. An interesting example worth further research. Very scarce. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Autograph Letter Signed to 'My dear Kieth' [sic], (Hon. Henry, 1746-1817, Scottish Lawyer and Wit, Lord Advocate, 1783 and 1806-1807)

      1793 - Captain the Hon. George Keith Elphinstone (1746-1823, Admiral, 1801, 1st Baron Keith, 1797, 1st Viscount 1814), the Prince of Wales's Secretary for Scotland, saying that "Not finding Mr Blane", (Andrew, 1744-1839, Writer to the Signet, 1774, Sheriff-clerk of Ayrshire, 1815-1821, eldest son of Gilbert Blane of Blanefield) "willing to accept of the offices of Depute Secretary and D[epute] Keeper of the Signet which you were kindly pleased to offer for the purpose of accommodating Matters", Erskine must "in Justice to myself & I think . to his Royal Highness . intreat you most humbly to lay before his R.H. the inclosed Memorial [not present]", showing that "the promise founded on by Dr Blane", (Gilbert, Andrew's brother, 1749-1834, from 1812 1st Baronet), "was most improperly obtained . and should not be fulfilled", seeing that the Prince had commissioned Erskine to dispose of the post "which I had actually done before his Royal Highnesses promise was obtained", Keith must judge whether such a promise ought ever so "affect his R. Highness mind" as to command Erskine to fulfil it, but "there is no Command of his that I shall not cheerfully obey . especially in the Execution of an Office I owe to his favor", subscribing himself "With the most anxious attention to his Pleasure Honor & Interest .", 3 sides 4to, Edinburgh, 2nd March Henry Erskine was one of the most admired Scottish lawyers of the day, seasoning his arguments with wit that was always to the point. In the spring of 1783 the Prince of Wales appointed him his advocate and State Councillor in Scotland, a post that survived his short tenure as Lord Advocate later that year. At the time of this letter he was also Dean of the Faculty of Advocates, 1785-1796. The Keeper of the Signet, now one of the titles of the Lord Clerk Register, is an office under the Crown, whose day-to-day business is managed by the Deputy Keeper. The Society of Writers to the Signet, besides their standing as solicitors to the Court of Session, had formerly wide powers in approving the issuing of writs. Gilbert Blane was a distinguished physician who reformed the Navy's attitude to health by preventive measures, particularly in combating scurvy with lemon juice, made official in 1795.

        Großes Wiener Affentheater. Zwei ausserordentlich große Vorstellungen von bewunderungswürdigen Fertigkeits-Uebungen, in Kunstreiten, Voltigiren, Seiltänzen mit und ohne Balancirstange, künstlichen Wendungen und höchst komischen Scenen durch Affen und Hunde auszuführen. (Unterzeichner:) Heinrich Schreyer.

      Einblattdruck mit gr. Holzschnitt (17 x 36 cm). Blattgr.: 56 x 39 cm. Wurzbach XXXI, 305: "Heinrich Schreyer, Menageriebesitzer und Thierhändler, war aus Lemberg in Galizien gebürtig (geb. 1793, gest. zu Wien 22. August 1847). Im Sommer 1847 kam er nach Wien, wo er im Prater das große Affentheater erbaute, welches er im Juni d. J. eröffnete. Der Zulauf zu dieser Sehenswürdigkeit - die Dressur der Hunde und Affen war psychologisch merkwürdig - war ein ungeheurer. In wenigen Wochen hatte S. einen Gewinn von über 20.000 fl. erzielt. Aber mit diesem Glücke seines Unternehmens schritt das Unglück in seiner Familie Hand in Hand. Kaum in Wien angekommen, erkrankten Frau und Kinder am Typhus. Kaum waren aber diese genesen, wurde er selbst von der Seuche hingerafft. Das Theater führte nun die Witwe fort. Später übernahm das Ganze Casanova, der in Schreyers Diensten gestanden und der nun einige Zeit noch in Wien Vorstellungen gab. Im Jahre 1861 brachte der damalige Volkssänger Fürst die Bude käuflich an sich, gestaltete sie um und eröffnete sie am 21. April 1862 als Singspielhalle, aus welcher das Volkstheater im Prater und zuletzt das Fürst-Theater sich entwickelte. Anregend im Hinblick auf Abrichtung der Thiere, wirkte die Schreyersche Affenbude auf die Bevölkerung ganz anders, wie der Cancan der Fürstschen Bühne! Noch sei bemerkt, daß Schreyer während seines kurzen Aufenthaltes in Wien im Jahre 1847 dem im genannten Jahre errichteten Affenhause in der Schönbrunner Menagerie die erste Affenbevölkerung lieferte."

        Paul Jones shooting a Sailor who had attempted to strike his Colours in an Engagement. From the original picture by John Collet [sic], in the possession of Carrington Bowles

      London: printed for & sold by Bowles & Carver, 1793. Line engraving after the painting by John Collett and the mezzzotint by Carington Bowles Sheet size: 18 1/2 x 13 1/8 inches. Trimmed within platemark. Skillful restoration at left and bottom margins, and a skillfully repaired crease. A fine example of an excessively rare print, depicting the pivotal moment of one of the most famous naval engagements of the Revolutionary WarThis is an enlarged, re-engraving by Bowles & Carver of Carington Bowles' mezzotint of Collett's caricature of John Paul Jones. Carrington Bowles II & Samuel Carver continued Carington Bowles' print business after his death, re-issuing his most sought-after images.This was one of three versions of this British satirical war print, each with the same title. Captain John Paul Jones is shown "preventing" one of his men from striking the American flag and surrendering to the British during the naval engagement between HMS Serapis and his U.S. fighting Ship Bonhomme Richard . Collett depicts an impassioned Jones, wearing a lavishly plumed hat and a bandana, four pistols stuck pirate-style in his belt, cutlass tucked under his left arm. The American naval captain wades through the wounded to shoot his chief gunner, Henry Gardner. It is probably based on an incident in which a shell-shocked American gunner shouted for quarter until Jones knocked him down with the butt a pistol."Near midnight on Sept. 23, 1779, just off the coast of Flamborough Head, England, hundreds of British stood in awe, watching 'pirate Paul Jones' destroy one of the finest ships in their fine Navy. The English viewed Jones as a criminal, equating his vicious attacks on British convoys with the fighting techniques of Blackbeard himself. On that clear warm autumn night, the shocked audience witnessed Jones in one of the most hard-fought battles of the Revolution. Meanwhile, the surviving seamen of the 42-gun Bonhomme Richard must have thought their commander, Capt. John Paul Jones, had gone insane. Separated by two feet, the double deck HMS Serapis , a well-made and brand new British escort ship, was shooting 18-pound cannon balls into the 14-year-old single deck Bonhomme Richard ; cannon balls that from 200 yards could shoot through four feet of oak. Near the battle's end, half the crewmates on each ship were dead ... and both ships were on fire. Capt. Pearson, commander of Serapis assumed Bonhomme Richard would be the first to surrender. He asked Jones, 'Do you strike?' According to battle expert Peter Reaveley, Jones screamed out, 'No! I'll sink, but I'm damned if I'll strike!' The following quotation is more famously noted as Jones' retort: 'I have not yet begun to fight!'. The battle established the Continental Navy as a powerful force and Capt. John Paul Jones as a hero" (Joanna Romansic, see online"NHC Joins Search for John Paul Jones' Ship")."Principally a caricaturist, John ['the second Hogarth'] Collett (British, ca.1725-1780) studied with the artist George Lambert and at the St. Martin's Lane Academy, London. He exhibited at the Free Society of Artists from 1761, his last exhibit occuring posthumously in 1783. His caricatures owe a great debt to Hogarth ... His work was widely reproduced as prints by many of the leading publishers of the day, John Boydell, Carington Bowles, and others ... A large inheritance allowed him to live in some style in Chelsea, London. Examples of his work may be seen in the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum" (Thomas Deans).Cf.
