      [Philadelphia: Printed by Childs and Swaine, 1794. [3]pp., printed on a folded folio sheet. Folio. Old fold lines. Top right corner of first leaf torn away, not affecting text. Final blank page with contemporary manuscript annotation. Some browning and foxing, light dampstaining. Good plus. An act passed by the Third Congress that required retailers of wines and imported spirits to purchase a five dollar license for the legal right to sell their products, or else face a fifty dollar fine. The law was another facet of Alexander Hamilton's strategy to raise federal revenue through the taxation of liquor sales and production. George Washington's presidential message of November 22, 1792 advocated a tax on distilled spirits, and Alexander Hamilton was a strong proponent of the whiskey excise tax, which was part of his overall plan for putting the federal government on a sound fiscal basis. This licensing law in conjunction with another passed the same day, which required a license for all stills and subjected those not registered to confiscation, touched off the Whiskey Rebellion in western Pennsylvania that had been fomenting there since the first Excise Law was passed in 1791. "Approved - June the fifth 1794," and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. This printing also includes a statement of deposition: "Deposited among the rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State. [blank] Secretary of State," and is signed by Edmund Randolph. This is a variant issue of the imprint recorded as Evans 27867 and ESTC W28074, which lacks the added text and signature, and is unrecorded there and in OCLC. Edmund Randolph became the second Secretary of State on Jan. 2, 1794, succeeding Thomas Jefferson, who resigned at the end of 1793. He continued the practice begun in the First Congress of the Secretary of State signing a small number of "official" copies of Congressional acts for distribution to the States and important government officials. After the Third Congress, official acts were no longer signed in manuscript by the Secretary of State. EVANS 27867 (ref.). ESTC W28074 (ref.).

        Abraham and Martha Bininger - Folio ALS - 1794

      1794. No Binding. Good. 2pp folio ALS on large folded lettersheet, small amount of writing on second leaf for address; spiritually significant letter with Christian discussion and admonition. Appears to be from parents to son and daughter in law. Bininger at one time worked with George Whitefield. Dated January 5th, although month is a little difficult to read. At this point Abraham would have been about 74 years old; he lived until 1811. ALS seems to have been written to son John, although ink is faded and unclear on first few lines, with name appearing to have an extra letter. However, ancestry sources do confirm that Abraham and Martha had a son John, and the letter refers to two other sons, Isaac and Joseph, leaving John as one of the remaining songs (the others being Abraham and Christian) to receive the letter. There was also a daughter named Martha. Descendant Mary C. Bininger notes at lower portion of verso of letter that this is her fourth ancestor

A shoemaker by trade, Hardy was the founder and First Secretary of the London Corresponding Society. This was a popular association of workingmen committing to the cause of universal male suffrage. Unnerved by the excesses of the French Revolution, and eager to set an example, Hardy was indicted for high treason in 1794. The public favored Hardy's cause and he was seen as an unjustly persecuted apostle of English liberty. As the trial proved, the Crown's case, prosecuted by Lord Eldon, had little merit and Hardy was acquitted to great acclaim. This account contains a complete transcript of the trial, along with a narrative account and the texts of letters and documents introduced as evidence. English Short-Title Catalogue T73925.

        Indonesia, West Coast of Sumatra - Laurie and Whittle, 1794.

      INDONESIA NAUTICAL CHART"A Chart of the West Coast of Sumatra from Old Bencoolen to Buffaloe Point containing the Road of Bencoolen and Poolo Bay. Plan of Rat Island. Plan of Poolo Bay.'Copper engraving from "The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator' published in London by Robert Laurie and James Whittle in 1794. Coloured by a later hand. Size: approx. 63,5 x 53,3 cm.Nautical chart of the west coast of Sumatra in the vicinity of Bencoolen or Fort Marlborough. The map is divided into three sections, the left hand side being a general nautical chart of the approaches to Bencoolen and Fort Marlborough, the right hand plans are details of Rat Island and Poolo Bay. Bencoolen (Bengkulu) was established as a pepper-trading center by the British East India Company in 1685. By the time this map was drawn Bencoolen has been renamed "Old Bencoolen', being superseded in 1714 by Fort Marlborough just to the south. The map offers considerable detail on the approaches to Bencoolen for which Rat Island (top right submap) is an important marker, as well as a staging post were vessels could dry anchor and dry nets. Poolo Bay (Pulau Bay) (bottom right submap), some seven miles south of Fort Marlborough, was at the time an excellent harbor and anchorage. There the map identifies warehouses as well as lime ovens and a fresh water source.Though most charts in the East-India Pilot were derived from earlier maps prepared for Jean-Baptiste d"Apres de Mannevillette"s 1745 Neptune Oriental, this particular chart is a new production unique to Laurie and Whittle. The map offers rich detail including countless depth soundings, notes on the sea floor, commentary on reefs, rhumb lines, shoals, place names and a wealth of other practical information for the mariner. Cartographically it was derived from surveys by Captain Joseph Huddart, John Price, and a Mr McDonald.Price: € 975 (excl. VAT/BTW).

      London: J. Debrett. 1794. Two vols. in one, 8vo., one plate*, 45 + (3) and (4) + 72 + (122) + 28pp., minute hole in one leaf with loss or partial loss of one or two letters on recto and verso, contemporary calf-backed marbled boards with original morocco label lettered in gilt. A fine copy, with the early 20th century booklabel on front pastedown of Robert A.N. Petrie.> A complete set of the reports of both committees. See Goldsmiths 16119 and 16122 (although this latter is a 4th ed.). Very scarce. These were the reports of the government inquiry into the radical, and potentially revolutionary, political societies that had mushroomed in the early 1790s. They included the Society for Constitutional Information, the Society of the Friends of the People, and, most of all, the largely working class London Corresponding Society (Thomas Hardy, Maurice Margarot, &c.) which campaigned for annual parliaments and universal manhood suffrage. All these were seen by the establishment as nurturing subversive elements which were not surprisingly of great concern to the government, which employed an intricate network of spies to infiltrate the societies to gather intelligence. The two Parliamentary committees comprised the most senior members of government including Pitt himself, together with Dundas and Edmund Burke. The Reports themselves include transcriptions of numerous documents (letters, reports, &c.) throwing light on the operations of these societies largely over the period 1792 to May 1794. Of course, these reports and the committee hearings, all post-dated the principal treason trials of such men as Maurice Margarot, William Skirving, Thomas Muir, Thomas Fyshe Palmer and others which had already occurred some months earlier. Both the Commons and the House of Lords' Committees had struggled, as had the trial judges, with the boundaries between legitimate free speech and criminal sedition and treason. It was, as these reports show, not an easy distinction. The reports therefore have become an essential source for the study of what many feared might have been a 'British Revolution'. * The plate illustrates four weapons (pikes or bladed staffs) which had been discovered in various quantities in the possession of some of the men being investigated.

Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Extremely scarce publication ! No copy available on the worldwide market at the time of cataloging. The Society of United Irishmen was founded as a liberal political organisation in 18th century Ireland that initially sought Parliamentary reform. However, it evolved into a revolutionary republican organisation, inspired by the American Revolution and allied with Revolutionary France. It launched the Irish Rebellion of 1798 with the objective of ending British monarchical rule over Ireland and founding a sovereign, independent Irish republic. During the 1780s, a few liberal members of the ruling Protestant Ascendancy, organised as the Irish Patriot Party led by Henry Grattan, campaigned for: reform of the Irish parliament; a lessening of British interference in Ireland's affairs; and expanding the rights and voting franchise for Catholics and Presbyterians. Backing them up was the Irish Volunteers movement, which had widespread Protestant support. Whilst they had limited success such as the establishment of Grattan's Parliament and the repeal of some of the discriminatory Penal Laws, they fell short of many of their aims. When the parliamentary reform movement collapsed in 1784, it left radicals without a political cause. By the mid-1780s, radicalism in Ireland was taking a new, bolder form, typified by the letters penned by William Drennan which were published in the Belfast Newsletter and in pamphlets. In them he hit out at leaders of the Volunteers such as Grattan and Charlemont for their conservatism and restraint, and at the political establishment for preventing the reform of the Irish parliament. Most notably was his appeal for all Anglicans, Dissenters, and Roman Catholics to unite together as one indifferent association, however he accepted that this would only appeal to the minority within each denomination. Inspiring and increasing the radicalisation of Irish reformists was the French Revolution which had started in 1789, and had so far remained largely bloodless, with the French king forced to concede effective power to a National Assembly. Also in 1789 the Whig party was founded in Ireland and soon it became an alliance of radicals, reform-minded parliamentarians, and dissident representatives of the governing class. By 1791 this alliance however was already fracturing, and several rival Whig clubs were set up by people such as Napper Tandy in Dublin and Belfast. Another grouping was a "shadowy" organisation of eleven people headed by Samuel Neilson, that sought to move the recently revived Volunteer movement in as far a radical direction as possible. The enthusiasm for the French Revolution saw great Irish interest in Thomas Paine's The Rights of Man released in May 1791, which defended it and saw around 20,000 cheap copies printed for digest in Ireland. A couple of months later the Belfast Volunteer company gathered to celebrate the second anniversary of the fall of the Bastille. It was intended that a new radical society was to be announced during the celebrations which William Drennan, who was to give a declaration, asked to add in resolutions. Drennan refused due to the short notice of the request and suggested that a Theobald Wolfe Tone be asked. Tone's reformist radicalism had advanced beyond that of the Whigs, and he proposed three resolutions for the new society, which he named the Society of United Irishmen. The first resolution was for the denouncing of the continuing interference of the British establishment in Irish affairs. The second was for the full reform of the Irish parliament and its representation. The last resolution called for a union of religious faiths in Ireland to "abolish the diff [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lettre autographe, manuscrite au Prince de Condé, Commandant en chef de l'armée émigrée dite "Armée de Condé" au quartier général d'Heidelberg, le 24 novembre 1794. Le Manuscrit, porte comme titre "Instruction à suivre en cas que le Rhin vint à geler"

      1794 - 8 pages manuscrites in-folio d'une fine écriture très lisibles. Durant les guerres de la Révolution, les troupes françaises franchissent plusieurs fois le fleuve : une première fois en 1794, près de Düsseldorf, puis à nouveau en septembre 1795 - - - L'armée de Condé est l'une des armées des émigrés créées par Louis V Joseph de Bourbon-Condé, cousin du Roi, et de ses frères pour lutter contre la révolution française. Il évite son arrestation en émigrant après la prise de la Bastille, aux Pays-Bas puis à Turin. Jusqu'à la guerre, il s'est établi à Worms, sur les bords du Rhin tandis que les frères du Roi établissent leur quartier général à Coblence. Il crée dans cette petite ville cette armée qui va porter son nom. 27 officiers du régiment de Beauvoisis sont présentés au prince le 19 avril 1791. Cette armée participe aux guerres de la Révolution française de 1792 à 1801 aux côtés des armées des Habsbourg-Lorraine, en participant aux combats pendant l'invasion - ou libération pour les royalistes - non réussie de la France par les alliés - ou les ennemis pour les républicains. Comme l'armée des princes, il compte dans ses rangs quelques aristocrates tels que son propre fils, Louis VI Henri de Bourbon-Condé, son petit-fils, duc d'Enghien, le duc de Richelieu, le duc de Blacas, duc de Choiseul, le comte de Langeron, le comte de Damas, le comte de Montlosier, le Comte de Mauny, vicomte de Bonald et beaucoup d'hobereaux comme Chateaubriand. Cette troupe compte presque plus d'officiers que de soldats. Des officiers élégants, deviennent tout à coup soldats par dévouement pour la monarchie, mais c'est un corps où personne ne veut nettoyer son fusil, ni faire l'exercice, mais où chacun est prêt à se faire tuer et est d'une bravoure à toute épreuve constate le chevalier d'Hespel. Le 19 août 1793, l'armée de Condé s'empare de Jockgrim, Wörth et Pfotz, le long du Rhin. La contre attaque des républicains de nuit est repoussée, et permet à l'armée de Condé de s'emparer de Hagenbach et Büchelberg : les pertes républicaines sont lourdes : 3 000 hommes et 18 canons. L'armée de Condé est alors mise à l'ordre de l'armée autrichienne. Le 1er décembre 1793, les dernières attaques de l'armée de la Moselle avaient nécessité des mouvements dans celle du Rhin. Le 11 frimaire, le général Pichegru voulant tâter toute la ligne ennemie, fait d'abord attaquer, sans succès, vers le centre le village de Bertsheim, en avant d'Haguenau, occupé par les émigrés. Le lendemain, l'artillerie ayant recommencé l'action, l'infanterie, d'abord entièrement en tirailleurs, s'étant réunie en colonne au signal convenu, force le village où se trouvait le régiment des émigrés de Mirabeau et celui de Hohenlohe, autrichien, lorsque le prince de Condé, qui était posté en arrière avec son infanterie, entre dans le village sur quatre colonnes, et le reprend l'épée à la main ; en même temps sa cavalerie qui l'avait dépassé sur la droite, ayant rencontré la cavalerie républicaine, la bat, s'empare de sept canons, et met hors de combat environ 200 hommes [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Berlin, bei Christian Gottfried Schöne 1794 - Mit dem Bildnisse des verstorbenen Moritz (als Titelkupfer; J.D.H. f., d.i.?). Front., XIV, (3-) 488 S., (1) Bl. "Berichtigungen". Pappband d.Zt. mit Rückenschild und –linienvergoldung. Etwas berieben, Bezug a.d. Rücken fachgerecht Restauriert. Erste Ausgabe (nicht bei Goedeke; Hirschberg, Taschengoedeke 2, S.341; W./.G² 70). – Nahezu fleckfrei. Front. im Außenrand mit kurzen Einrissen. A.d. Vorsatz ein Besitzeintrag von 1978 unkenntlich gemacht. Gutes Exemplar der durchaus seltenen ersten Ausgabe, häufiger ist die zweite, unveränderte Auflage von 1798; eine dritte Auflage erschien noch 1816, eine Übersetzung ins Holländische 1820. Das Mythologische Wörterbuch konnte MORITZ (Hameln 1756 – 1793 Berlin) nicht mehr selbst vollenden; von ihm stammt nur der ausformulierte Text bis S.67, den Rest bearbeitete V.H. SCHMIDT (1756 Berlin 1838), der hier als Prorektor der Köllnischen Stadtschule firmiert, später Direktor des Köllnischen Gymnasiums wurde. Er ist heute noch bekannt als Autor einiger bedeutender Werke zur berlin- und brandenburgischen Geschichte. MORITZ beschäftigte sich seit der Rückkehr aus Italien intensiv mit der Mythologie der Griechen und Römer, was in den frühen ´90er Jahren Niederschlag in mehreren Veröffentlichungen fand (neben der vorliegenden auch Antousa oder Roms Alterthümer, 1791; Götterlehre, 1791; Mythologischer Almanach, 1792). Er stand damit im Zentrum der Bemühungen der Klassik, den Tendenzen der Zeit, revolutionäre Unruhe auf der einen, starrer Rationalismus der Aufklärung auf der anderen Seite, die antiken Ideale der Kunst und Humanität entgegenzusetzen. Das Kupfer, das als eines des treuesten Portraits MORITZ‘ gilt, stach der unbekannt gebliebene J.D.H. nach dem Gemälde, das KARL FRANZ JAKOB HEINRICH SCHUMANN 1791 in Berlin im Auftrag GLEIMs für dessen Gemäldesammlung angefertigt hatte.

        Ferishta's History of Dekkan,

      Shrewsbury: Printed by J. & W. Eddowes for John Stockdale, London, , 1794. from the first Muhammedan Conquests: with a continuation from other native writers, of the events in that part of India, to the reduction of its last monarchs by the emperor Aulumgeer Aurungzebe: also, the reigns of his suvccessors in the empire of Hindostan to the present day: and the History of Bengal, from the accession of Aliverdee Khan to the year 1780. 2 volumes, quarto (278 x 217 mm). Late 19th century dark red half morocco for the bookseller William Brown (Edinburgh), gilt lettered and banded spines, marbled sides, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Bindings a little rubbed at the extremities, a couple of corners lightly bumped, scattered foxing and some paper toning but a good tall set. First edition of this translation of one of the most important histories of India, by the late 16th-century Persian historian Muhammad Qasim Hindu Shah, known as Ferishta. The British orientalist Jonathan Scott (1753-1829) had it published at his own expense in his native Shrewsbury. Scott served as an officer with the East India Company and saw action in the First Mahratta War when acting as Persian translator to Major William Popham. "Governor-General Warren Hastings appointed Scott his private Persian translator in 1783, responsible for communications with the native powers judged too diplomatically sensitive to be trusted to an Indian secretary. Hastings also valued Scott's historical investigations which took their cue from Robert Orme's thesis that the reign of Aurangzeb and of his successors was the key epoch of Mughal Indian history. Scott consulted the best native authorities, and amassed materials collected by his brother Captain Richard Scott, and by Lieutenant-Colonel Henri Polier, concluding that a fuller understanding of recent history might be gained from an insight into the history of the Deccan" (ODNB). From the library of the Lords Elphinstone, with their Carberry Tower Library label in both volumes; the most distinguished scion of that house was Mountstuart Elphinstone (1779-1859), administrator in India.

        A New General Map of the East Indies Exhibiting in the Peninsula on the Side of the Ganges or Hindoostan

      Laurie and Whittle, London 1794 - This beautifully hand colored map of Southeast Asia depicts from Persia (Afghanistan) east as far as Macao to include the Indian subcontinent, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma (Myanmar), Malaysia, Sumatra and part of Borneo and China. It notes the various kingdoms and territories of the time including Pegu (Burma) Siam (Thailand), Tonkin and Chochin (Vietnam) and Camboja (Cambodia). Further South, the Straits of Singapore are labeled. Singapore Island however, is not labeled but is recognizable. The partitions of the Mogul Empire, the dominions of the East India Company as well as French and Dutch possessions are color-coded. The map labels numerous towns, cities and roads with exquisitely detailed topography including coastlines, rivers and mountains. Interesting annotations at a few places read "Cancar or Ponthiamas a Little Kingdom founded about 50 years ago by Kiang-tse a Chinese Mercht" near the western coast of Cambodia, and "Mountains inhabited by the Wild Nation called Ke-Moy" in Vietnam.This map, by Thomas Jefferys was made from actual surveys made by Major James Rennel and was published by Laurie and Whittle in Thomas Kitchin's 1794 "General Atlas". The map is in good condition with reinforcements along the original centerfold. Some edge wear and verso repair. Original plate mark is visible. Small portion of margin near title is repaired with portion filled in. Overall toning and minor foxing.Thomas Kitchin (1719-1784) was an English engraver and map-maker. His maps and atlases of England earned him the position of hydrographer to the King. Robert Laurie (c. 1755 - 1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818) were London-based map and atlas publishers active in the late 18th and early 19th century. Their firm combined Laurie's engraving skills with Whittle's social contacts and print sales experience. Together, they published numerous maps and atlases, often enlisting prominent cartographers such as Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their plates.Thomas Kitchin (1719-1784) was an English engraver and map-maker.

        The Elements and Practice of Rigging and Seamanship

      London: Printed for David Steel, Union Row, Little Tower Hill, 1794. Trimmed a little close by the eighteenth-century binder with a few plate margins and some headlines at the end of vol. II affected; in generally excellent condition.. Two volumes, quarto, with an engraved frontispiece and 94 engraved plates, many of them folding; with two working volvelles (Vol. II after p.274); contemporary calf, flat spines decorated in gilt, double leather labels; armorial bookplates of the Earl of Northesk. First edition of this classic compendium of the practice of sailing large ships: a precise record of sail practices prevalent at the close of the eighteenth century and thus an extraordinarily detailed record of the technology that fulfilled white settlement of Australia. A rare book in any case, this is an unusually good copy: most examples that we have seen have suffered from heavy use. This handsome copy has probably survived so well as it comes from the library of a naval nabob, William Carnegie, the seventh Earl of Northesk. Naval commander and hero, Carnegie was third in command at Trafalgar, commanding the Britannia in the great defeat of the French. His career culminated in his appointment as full admiral and Commander-in-chief Plymouth.Two pages of extensive neatly written notes on blank leaves at the start of the first volume record careful details of sail settings for two ships of the line, Le Tonnant and Magnificent. The former was likely the French warship captured by Nelson at the battle of Aboukir and subsequently transferred into the Royal Navy while Magnificent was the command of Carnegie's brother-in-law William Henry Jervis. A modern reprint, with a foreword by Dr. Alan McGowan of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, describes it as 'the first work published in the English language that was really designed as a compendium of the knowledge required by a seaman. As such it was aimed at the ambitious young men wishing to rise in their profession: the Midshipmen and Master's Mates in the Navy; the apprentices and would-be Mates in the merchant fleets. In the event its appeal was much wider. Its success stemmed largely from two factors established by Steel himself. First, it was aimed at those aspiring to succeed in the largest single industry in Britain - and probably the world. Second, it was essentially a practical man's guide to a practical business. Every skill that was required to be in the head - and hands - of a Master Mariner is dealt with in a logical sequence and in simple language: this is the essence of Steel's style.'This work was the bible for many midshipmen who joined the Royal Navy during the French Revolutionary Wars, Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. The coverage includes how to make all the sails, the masts, the anchors, how to tie knots, rig the ship, and actually sail the ship. Lastly, how to fight the ship. Where Naval Architecture shows you how to build the hull, Rigging and Seamanship covers everything else which formed part of the ship as well as how to use the ship. The two volumes Quarto contain nearly 600 pages of which 150 are tables. These provide all the dimensions for Standing and Running Rigging for every type of ship in the Royal Navy in 1794. There are also tables which cover the same information for Masts and Yards, and for each and every Sail used onboard every ship, whether of the line or smaller. There are also 95 plates to illustrate the above...'.A full text has been made available online by the Historic Naval Ships Association ( who describe it as 'a key reference for those interested in the age of Nelson... [which] will reward those that search through it to understand the technology of the era'.The only copy located by Trove in an Australian library is that in the State Library of New South Wales (D Q79/62-63).NOTE:Admiral Carnegie's role at Trafalgar (from J. Ralfe's The Naval Biography Of Great Britain, II, pp. 402-403, London, 1828), quoting from The Naval Chronicle:'We now come to the most important period of (Carnegie's) life, the battle of Trafalgar, in which he was third in command. Of his conduct on that occasion, the following particulars have been published, and we believe with perfect correctness: "Previous to that great event, it had been directed by the commander-in-chief, in consequence of her heavy sailing. that the Britannia should constantly take a position to the windward of him; and on the morning of that glorious day, he ordered, by signal, that she should assume a station as most convenient, without regard to the order of battle; and afterwards sent verbal directions to Lord Northesk, by the captain of the Sirius, to break through the enemy's line astern of the fourteenth ship. This was effected in the most masterly and gallant manner, though the Britannia was severely galled in bearing down by raking fire from several of the enemy. On passing through the line and hauling up, she was the fourth ship of the lee line in action (the Victory, Temeraire, and Neptune alone preceding her), and in a short space of time completely dismasted a French ship of 80 guns, who waved a white handkerchief in token of submission. She afterwards singly engaged and kept at bay three of the enemy's van ships, that were attempting to double upon the Victory, at that time warmly engaged with two of the enemy, and much disabled. During the whole continuance of this long and bloody conflict, the noble admiral zealously emulated the conduct of his illustrious leader, displaying the most heroic courage, tempered by the coolest judgment and presence of mind; nor was his conduct after the action less meritorious, while his skill and promptitude were equally conspicuous in the arduous task of securing the captured ships. And when the order was given for destroying the prizes, after removing them from the British seamen, his zeal in the truly dangerous service, in a tempestuous sea and a heavy gale of wind, was exceeded only by his exemplary humanity". (Naval Chronicle).'On this important day the Britannia's loss was 52 men killed and wounded. For his eminent service on this occasion, his Majesty conferred upon him the Order of the Bath, both Houses of Parliament returned him their thanks, and the citizens of London presented him with a valuable sword. He was also presented with a gold medal by the king, to commemorate the victory, and an elegant vase from the Patriotic Society. On the 281 April, 1808, he was made a vice-admiral; and on the 4th June, 1814, he attained the rank of admiral. He has since been honored with the rank of rear-admiral of Great Britand created Grand Cross of the Bath.'

        3seitiger Brief in schwarzer Tinte, Bonn 3. July 1841 mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift.

      0 - Autograph - Mendelssohn, Georg Benjamin, Geograph und Historiker 1794 - 1874. Sein Interesse richtete sich mit zunehmendem Alter immer stärker auf die Geschichte und die Politik, was auch seine letzte, 1846 erschienene Abhandlung über „Die ständische Institution im monarchischen Staate" bezeugt. Die romantisch-nationalen Anschauungen der Napoleonischen Zeit schlugen bei ihm in ein konservatives, ja reaktionäres Denken um, das die in Preußen bestehende Ständeeinteilung und die Privilegien der grundbesitzenden Aristokratie festschreiben wollte, was sogar die Kritik seiner adligen Freunde von der Wochenblattpartei hervorrief. 1843-45 gab Mendelssohn in sieben Bänden die „Gesammelten Schriften" seines Großvaters Moses Mendelssohn heraus. Zu den Hörern, die ihn schätzten, zählte 1841 Jacob Burckhardt, mit dem Mendelssohn als einziger Bonner Dozent auch persönlich in Verbindung trat. Außerdem las er als Ordinarius ein Privatissimum für den preußischen Prinzen Friedrich Wilhelm, den späteren Kaiser Friedrich III. Mendelssohns Bedeutung als Geograph gründet allein auf seinem „Germanischen Europa", das zu den Klassikern der Geographie gerechnet wird (Philippson), obwohl es bisher trotz positiver Urteile der Zeitgenossen und späterer Geographen noch keine eingehende wissenschaftsgeschichtliche Würdigung erfahren hat. In der Nachfolge Alexander v. Humboldts, Carl Ritters und Leopold v. Rankes stellt Mendelssohn für einen Teil Europas die gegenseitige Bedingtheit der Geographie, d. h. der Natur der Länder oder Landschaftsräume, und ihrer Geschichte dar. A. Hettner bezeichnet das Englandkapitel dieses Werkes, das in der Anwendung des Entwicklungsgedankens über Ritter hinausführt, als „Muster" für die „geschichtliche Auffassung der geographischen Verhältnisse des Menschen". Besonderes Lob fanden die prägnante Sprache des Autors und die Schönheit seiner auf eigenen Anschauungen beruhenden Naturschilderungen.

      [Augusta?], 1794. Clean and very good. An impressive printed land grant, completed in manuscript, for 1000 acres of land in Washington County, Georgia, granted by Gov. George Mathews to one Richmond Dawson. The document is signed by Mathews as well as by the surveyor, George Weatherby, who has included a sketch of the land in question. The land is described as "on the waters of Choopee River, bounded SE and NE by said Dawson's Land and on all other sides by Vacant Lands." Governor Mathews had an eventful career, first as a Revolutionary soldier (including a stint as colonel of the Virginia troops in Greene's Carolina campaign), then as governor of Georgia, and finally as a special agent leading "irregular" activities in attempts to wrest Florida from Spain in 1810-12. In the end the U.S. government repudiated Mathews' Florida actions, and he died in Augusta a bitter old man. "By his demise the authorities at Washington escaped the consequences of his threat that he'd 'be dam'd if he didn't blow them all up,' and he carried to the grave much evidence that might explain his debatable conduct" - DAB. A handsome Georgia document and unusual early imprint. DAB XII, p.403.

        TO THE CITIZENS OF BALTIMORE-TOWN [caption title]

      [Baltimore: Printed by James Angell & Paul J. Sullivan, 1794. Early ink note on verso: "Mr. Thornton." Old folds. Small separation at one crossfold, affecting two letters of text. Unevenly trimmed around the text. Very good. A very rare Federal-era broadside - only the second located copy - printing the text of an open letter from Judge Samuel Chase to the citizens of Baltimore in the wake of a riot in 1794. Chase, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a future Supreme Court Justice, defends his actions in detaining the leaders of the mob, and appeals to the citizens of Baltimore to value order and government over their destructive passions. The occasion for the uprising was Congress' declaration of a thirty-day embargo on foreign trade, issued in March 1794. A local shipmaster, Capt. Ramsdell, expressed his displeasure at the end of the embargo, and he and another man, named Stenton (described in the broadside as an "American pirate"), were attacked by a mob. Among the leaders of the mob was Capt. David Stodder, the owner of a local shipyard, and Capt. William Reeves. The mob set upon Ramsdell and Stenton at Fells Point and tarred and feathered them. Chase, who at the time was chief justice of the District Criminal Court in Baltimore and chief justice of the Maryland General Court, ordered that Stodder and Reeves, as the ringleaders, be held in custody pending charges unless they could offer up bail. Stodder and Reeves refused to post bail, and their supporters threatened to tear down the jail and to raze Chase's home. After giving them a day to cool down, the prisoners agreed to post bail and the tense situation abated. In the present broadside Chase describes and justifies his actions, making an eloquent case for the rule of law over the mentality of the mob. He lays out the details of the events, explains his actions in detail, and describes the threats made against him, his family and property, and against public order. Chase concludes by stating that he is doing his duty as a judge and following the oath of his office, and that he is not appealing to the citizens of Baltimore to protect himself, "but that you may determine whether you ought to suffer an outrage to your laws, so fatal to the prosperity of this town, so destructive of all order, and so subversive of your government." This broadside is without an imprint, and the identity of the printers is based on the attribution by Evans. Evans, NAIP, and Minick all locate only a single copy, at the Maryland Historical Society. Rare and quite interesting for the history of law and civic culture in the early American Republic. EVANS 26762. NAIP w000729. MINICK 159. Francis F. Beirne, THE AMIABLE BALTIMOREANS (New York, 1951), pp.144-45.

        Medicina theologica, ou supplica humilde, feita a todos os senhores confessores e directores, sobre o modo de proceder com seus penitentes na emenda dos peccados, principalmente da lascivia, colera, e bebedice. Bound third in the volume.

      Lisbon, Na Off. de Antonio Rodrigues Galhardo, 1794. - 11 works bound together. Small 4°, nineteenth-century (third quarter) quarter sheep over marbled boards (some wear to extremities, three small round wormholes in spine, six in upper cover with a bit more damage, and one slightly larger in rear cover), flat spine with green lettering piece ("Miscellanea" stamped in gilt), edges sprinkled red. Two small round wormholes throughout, touching some letters of text but not affecting legibility; repairs in lower margins of leaves S1-2; occasional light dampstaining, more pronounced on title page. Still, in near good to good condition. 147 pp., (2 ll.). *** FIRST EDITION of the first Portuguese book on psychosomatic medicine, and one of the earliest works on this subject in any language. Mello Franco is recognized as a precursor of Freud. Upon publication Medicina theologica was attacked for containing "dangerous, heterodox and impious doctrines." (Small wonder, when pp. 3-4 of the preface reads, "O Christianismo he o que mais me lastimou . . . só domina a desordem, e a iniquidade, propaga-se a libertinagem, desfallece o Santo, e marchão todos pela estrada dos peccadores.") The government ordered its suppression and dissolved the Real Meza da Censura, which had approved its publication, while the police tried in vain to discover its author.Mello Franco considers that the best way to cure human corruption (particularly lasciviousness, anger and drunkenness) is through confession, and he wants to raise confessors almost to the level of physicians who can treat the body as well as the spirit. He discusses love as sickness, including satyriasis and nymphomania, giving recipes for anti-aphrodisiacs that the confessor may prescribe. There are likewise recipes for medications to suppress anger. Chapter XX (p. 115) begins with the interesting comment, "A bebedice he huma grande enfermidade, que nunca se cura com remedios moraes, e difficilmente com os fysicos," and goes on to discuss the treatment of alcoholism (pp. 115-23).Mello Franco (1757-1823), a native of Minas Gerais, practiced medicine in Lisbon until 1817, when he returned to Brazil. He was frequently in trouble with the authorities for his liberal writings and associations, and spent several years imprisoned by the Inquisition. His Tratado da educação fysica dos meninos, Lisbon 1790, is the first book on pediatrics by a Brazilian. Reino da estupidez, a satirical poem aimed at the professors of Coimbra, was circulating anonymously in manuscript as early as 1785 (the first printed version was not until 1818), and caused an enormous scandal.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 320-1; cf. the first edition (1958) I, 274 where Borba cites only 2 known copies, and describes the book as "very rare"; Período colonial, pp. 140-3.
