        A piece of live oak from the frigate <i>U.S.S. Constitution, </i>carved into an elegant oval frame with an engraved portrait of George Washington, who was President when this, America's most famous ship, was first outfitted

      n.p., n.d. A small wooden picture frame, 2.5" x 3.25", with a hand-carved motif and acorns of a southern live oak tree running along the .5" wide molding, surrounding an engraved bust portrait of George Washington (after Gilbert Stuart). The paper backing on the verso reads: "Live Oak taken from the Frigate 'Constitution'", and signed with the initials, "A. M." Minor wear, some toning to paper backing on verso. The primary building material for the U.S.S. Constitution was southern live oak, which was cut and milled near St. Simons, Georgia. The southern live oak was highly prized by ship builders for its extraordinary tensile strength and its ability to resist salt air and rot. The same qualities made harvesting the trees enormously labor intensive and time consuming. Several hundred live oak trees were used in the construction of the frigate, and crews battled not only the incredibly tough wood, but heat, mosquitos and the diseases they carried with them. Due to these factors, it took nearly three years to complete the ship, which was launched on September 20, 1797.

        Charte Von Africa?

      Nuremberg: , 1797. Engraved double page (24 " x 21 "), hand colored, large title cartouche in bottom left corner. Old repair on bottom fold separation, some scattered tiny holes; otherwise very good plus. This large attractive map of Africa includes in the title description that Franz Ludwig Gussefeld (1744-1807 prepared this map with astronomical observations found on the maps of Sayer, Rennel and Arrowsmith. According to Norwich (see map 112) the German notation in the bottom left further states that accurate geographical knowledge of the interior will only be available after further exploration. No interior settlements are named. Despite the attempt at greater accuracy, many of the larger rivers of central and North Africa are omitted or are shown incorrectly. Still, the map is attractive and colorful. Norwich # 112.

        A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States

      1797. Published Under Adams's Supervision Adams, John [1735-1826]. A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America, Against the Attack of M. Turgot in His Letter to Dr. Price, Dated the Twenty-Second Day of March, 1778. Philadelphia: Printed by Budd and Bartram, for William Corbett, 1797. Three volumes. 6, xxxiii, [2], 4-392; [iv], 451; [ii] 528, [36] pp. Volume I has copperplate portrait frontispiece and Six-page subscriber list. Octavo (8" x 5"). Recent period-style calf, blind fillets and gilt rules to boards, gilt-edged raised bands and lettering pieces to spines. Moderate toning to texts, occasional light foxing, Volume II has light to moderate dampstaining to the upper portion of the first half of the text block, mostly to margins, title page of Volume III browned and edgeworn, following few leaves have light edgewear. Early owner initials to top-edges of text blocks, later owner signature to head of Volume III title page, interior otherwise clean. * Third, final and best edition, the last one published under Adams's supervision. He wrote this fundamental contribution to American political theory when he was the American ambassador at the Court of St. James. First published in London, the Defence was a profound influence on the delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and the framers of several post-Revolutionary state constitutions. It also did much to familiarize Europeans with the novel political events taking place in America. Adams intended the Defence to be a one-volume work. He added two more volumes in 1787 and 1788 to offer more examples and address issues raised by critics. The first volume, reprinted from the London edition, was reprinted in New York and Philadelphia in 1787 and Boston in 1788. An abridged two-volume French translation was published in Paris in 1792. The third edition, a corrected reprint of the second and final London edition, 1794, was the only complete three-volume text published in the United States. Not in Sabin. Howes, USIana 60.

        Voyage dans l'Interieur des États-Unis, a Bath, Winchester, dans la Vallée de Shenandoha, etc. etc. etc. pendant l'Été de 1791

      Paris: Cocheris, 1797 - Ferdinand-Marie Bayard de La Vingtrie (1763-c.1818) had pursued a military career in his native France, rising to the rank of lieutenant before leaving the army in 1788. Bayard was in his twenties when he made this journey to Virginia (the area is now in West Virginia). In Clark's words, "His purposes in traveling to Bath were to save his wife and child the perils of a summer in Baltimore, and to observe Americans in village and country rather than in towns in constant intercourse with Europe- Bayard's account affords a sympathetic, sentimental, leisurely picture of society at a forgotten watering place seldom visited by travelers. His social and intellectual acceptability and the length of his stay set his book apart from the customary tourist-guide gazetteer. His stated intention of delineating manners and customs is fulfilled." After returning to France, he published "Voyage dans l'intérieur des États-Unis." First edition. 8vo. (2), xvi, (2), 336 pp. Contemporary quarter leather over paste paper boards, French tips, flat spine decorated in gilt, red leather spine label, marbled endpapers. Joints rubbed, spine label chipped, some spotting and soiling to the text block, otherwise a near fine copy.

        The Italian, or, The Confessional of the Black Penitents. A romance.

      - Dublin, printed for P. Wogan &c 1797. Two volumes 12mo contemporary sheep (some insect chewing of leather around the spines). Some browning and signs of use but a pleasing enough original copy. First Irish edition, hard on the heels of the London edition. Having never recovered from The Mysteries of Udolpho and the awe and wonder it produced in me - I still wonder how it didn't kill the Romantic movement stone dead and I had an awful urge to slap Emily every time she trembled in ecstacy faced with a slice of nature - I'm unable to face The Italian. The conflicting opinions of it being her both her best and her worst book makes it bit more intriguing.

        Hiden Senba zuru origata [trans.: Secret Methods of Making a Thousand Conjoined Cranes]

      Very numerous woodcuts in the text. 31 folding leaves. Small 8vo, orig. blue wrappers (somewhat worn & rubbed), orig. block printed title label on upper cover (rubbed & frayed). Kyoto: 1797. First edition of the first book on recreational -- as compared to ceremonial -- origami techniques. Gido (1762-1834), the chief priest of Choenji temple at Kuwana City, was an expert of the Renzuru technique. This, the most classic and advanced of all Japanese origami methods, is a technique in which up to one hundred connected cranes are created from one folded sheet of paper. Strategic cuts are made to the original large square sheet, forming a mosaic of semi-detached smaller squares which are then folded into connected crane shapes. Rito Akisato (fl. 1780-1814), has provided each model with a short comic poem (Kyoka). The illustrator, Shunsensai Takehara from Osaka, the son of the famous artist Shuchosai Takehara, depicts the 49 models of cranes, each of increasing complexity. In addition, Takehara also provides several full-page or double-page illustrations of women making origami along with other historical scenes. Fine copy preserved in a box. There is no copy of this book located in WorldCat; it is truly rare, copies no doubt having been used to death. .

      London: J. Bell, 1797.. Three volumes. First English translation. Contemporary full speckled calf, spines with gilt rules, gilt lettered red title labels and dark green oval number labels, the later armorial bookplate of the Cobbold family of Ipswich to the front pastedowns of volumes II and III, all three volumes with an inscription stating that the books were purchased in Sotheby's in 1972.. A most attractive set. Johann Beckmann taught and wrote widely on the subjects of natural history and science, he was famously attributed with the coining of the term "technology". This is his most notable work, an almost encyclopaedic collection of articles on various trades, natural products and inventions covering an extensive list of subjects to include everything from the "chemical names of metals" to tulips. The first English translation appeared before Beckmann had completed the fourth and final volume, the first English edition of which appeared 17 years later.

        The Voyage of Nearchus from the Indus to the Euphrates, collected from the Original Journal Preserved by Arrian, and Illustrated by Authorities Ancient and Modern;

      London: T. Cadell, Jun., and W. Davies,, 1797. containing an Account of the First Navigation attempted by Europeans in the Indian Ocean. Quarto (279 × 212 mm) Contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, black morocco label, flat spine gilt centre-tool of a roundel enclosing a three-master to the compartments, dolphin corner-pieces, double fillet gilt panel to the boards enclosing a bead and chain panel with small floral tools to the corners, all edges gilt, beaded roll gilt to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers.

First edition. English translation of Arrian's account of the navarch Nearchus' voyage from the Indus estuary to the Tigris in 325 B.C., in effect the Greek "discovery" of the Arabian Peninsula, as noted by the British Arabist Col. S.B. Miles; "It was in the time of Alexander that the land of Oman was first seen by Europeans. His admiral, Nearchus, when passing up the Persian Gulf, sighted Cape Maceta or Cape Mussendom, and heard from the pilot of a great Omani emporium … Alexander hearing his report, determined on sending an expedition to circumnavigate the Arabian peninsula, but his early death in Babylon put an end to this and other schemes, and for nearly a hundred years no fresh light was thrown on the land" (The Tribes and Countries of the Persian Gulf, p.8) Vincent states that his purpose "was not to translate Arrian, but to make him intelligible to an English reader, and to investigate a variety of subjects, historical, geographical and commercial" (author's preface). In the course of his work Vincent consulted Niebuhr - "the best of modern travellers surviving"; James Rennell - whose "civilities will not be erased from my mind"; Mr. Jones, later Sir Harford Jones-Brydges, "resident for the Company at Busheer and Basra" from whom he "obtained much information in the space of a short interview"; and Alexander Dalrymple who "demands the utmost tribute of my gratitude"; "The two charts, composed under his direction, accompany the Voyage of Nearchus; … one of them comprehends a part of the coast which, without his assistance, was inexplicable …". Inscription to the second blank records the presentation of this copy to John Spratt Rainier "in 1799 by his friend Philip Dundas Esqre", ownership inscription of J. Rainier McQueen facing on verso of first blank. Admiral Rainier ( (d. 1836) was the nephew of Admiral Peter Rainier (1741-1808), and like him served largely on the East Indies Station, in 1796 he commanded the 16-gun Swift as one of his uncle's squadron at the seizure of the Dutch possessions of Amboyna, in the Moluccas, and Banda Neira. Before his retirement in 1819 he had amassed a reasonable fortune. Philip Dundas (ca.1763-1807), also served with the navy in India, became president of the East India Marine Board and superintendent for Bombay, he later became governor of Prince of Wales Island, Penang. John Rainier McQueen (1840-1912), of Peebleshire, husband of Admiral John Rainier's daughter, Elizabeth, was at King's School, Canterbury, and Oxford with Walter Pater.
