Jones, John Paul]: Benoit André
Chez Louis, Paris, 1798. [4],xix,[1],244pp. plus handcolored frontispiece showing a portrait above a naval battle vignette. Half title. 16mo. Contemporary calf, gilt tooled borders on both boards, expertly rebacked with original gilt backstrip laid down, gilt morocco label. Corners a bit worn. Mild toning. A very good copy. Includes a later two-page typescript from an unknown previous owner speculating on the identity of Citizen André. The exceedingly rare first edition of Jones' autobiography, the first biographical treatment of the "Father of the American Navy." These memoirs were translated under the direction of the author by Benoit André (the "Citizen André" mentioned in the title). An English translation of this volume appeared in Niles' REGISTER for 1812, but numerous popular biographies of Jones had been published in the interim. The present work is a remarkable narrative made up from Jones' manuscript "Journal for the King" presented by him to King Louis XVI in 1786. Benoit André was for a time secretary to the Commodore. The Appendix prints thirty letters back and forth between Jones and his many correspondents, including Washington, Franklin, and the American Congress. ^Admiral John Paul Jones was a Revolutionary War naval hero immortalized by his actions as commander of the Bonhomme Richard in its engagement with the H.M.S. Serapis, in which he is said to have refused surrender by uttering the famous line, "I have not yet begun to fight." After a long and distinguished naval career, Jones retired to Paris, where he died in 1792. HOWES J228, "aa." SEITZ, p.182. R … [Click Below for Full Description]

1798 - THE HOUSE OF WISDOM IN A BUSTLE: A POEM DESCRIPTIVE OF THE NOTED BATTLE LATELY FOUGHT IN CONGRESS Copy owned by historian Benson Lossing, and inscribed by him January, 1862, and given to his friend, William Menzies. In researching this book, and William Menzies (1810-1896), I found that Menzies' collection of books was sold in 1876. The only auction reference I found on this title is in Joseph Sabin's CATALOGUE OF THE BOOKS MANUSCRIPTS AND ENGRAVINGS BELONGING TO WILLIAM MENZIES - 1875. The catalogue lists 2251 lots, with this book being Lot 982. Written in pencil, very small, on the verso of the front free end-paper is 982 underscored. You must read the introductory NOTICE in the catalog - this was an amazing collection, including 54 letters from George Washington. Sabin says in the beginning of this catalogue that he has had the privilege of compiling many catalogues, but he has not up until this point "had the pleasure of preparing a catalogue in which almost every book possesses special importance..." Later he said, "This collection was sold by the compiler in November, 1876, and realized nearly $50,000, being $9,000 more than it cost. It was the finest library ever sold in the United States." Actually spelled on the title page - C-ng-fs - to protect that august body. By Carey, James. [Geoffrey Touchstone, pseud.] Printed in Philadelphia for the author, 1798. 27 pages, fold-out plate showing the fight on the floor - "The Encounter between Roger Griswold and Matthew Lyon in 1798."

Stoddert, Benjamin (1744-1813)
A six page letter, approx. 900 words, apparently in a secretarial hand, signed by Stoddert, and directed to John Templeman, a Georgetown shipping merchant. Docketed "Mr. Stoddert's directions about timber." United States Secretary of the Navy Benjamin Stoddert's three years as the first Secretary of the Navy led to his being considered by many "the father of the American Navy." Stoddert composed this letter, to the best of our knowledge unpublished, six months after taking office in May 1798, and four months after the beginning of the "Quasi Naval War with France." During his three-year tenure which ended on March 31, 1801, Stoddert proposed plans for a robust expansion of the Navy, which, through no fault of his, were only partially achieved. He oversaw the successful establishment of six U.S. Navy yards needed to build the additional war vessels authorized by Congress. When he took office, Congress had already approved a considerable program to build new vessels. Stoddert persuaded Congress to authorize the construction of six additional large ships; at the same time he obtained approval to build the navy yards. Stoddert's ambitious program faltered with the ending of the "war" with France, in Sept. 1800, and with an incoming republican administration as hostile to the expansion of the Navy as it was to the idea of large government in general. This letter was likely written in anticipation of Stoddert's proposals, made in early 1799, for enlarging the fleet and building a system of navy yards. The letter consists of detailed instructions to Templeman to acquire timbered l … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kants Hauptwerke - die drei Critiken - in erster Ausgabe( Three Critiks in First Editions - Kant, Immanuel
Riga Friedrich Hartknoch, ebd.; Berlin und Libau, Lagarde; Königsberg, Nicolovius;, 1781/1788/1790, 1798. Halblederbände im Stile der Zeit mit Rücenschild, einheitlich gebunden, sehr repräsentative Ausgabe. Von herausragender Bedeutung ist in dieser Sammlung die erste Ausgabe der ?Critik der reinen Vernunft?, eines der wichtigsten Werke der Philosophie des Abendlandes überhaupt, in der Kant nicht weniger als eine ?Revolution der Denkungsart? überhaupt in Angriff nahm oder wie Kant schrieb: ?Was sind die Bedingungen der Möglichkeit von Erkenntnis??, denn ?Gedanken ohne Inhalt sind leer, Anschauungen ohne Begriffe sind blind? (ebd. AA III, 75) und ?Die Ordnung und Regelmäßigkeit an den Erscheinungen, die wir Natur nennen, bringen wir selbst hinein, und würden sie auch nicht darin finden können, hätten wir sie nicht, oder die Natur unseres Gemüts ursprünglich hineingelegt? (ebd. AA IV, 92). Nach recht erfolgloser Rezeption dieser ersten Auflage ? Moses Mendelssohn sprach von einem ?Nervensaft verzehrendes Werk? ? folgte eine stark überarbeitete zweite Auflage, die als einzige Grundlage aller weiteren Ausgaben diente. Indes hat nicht jeder Leser diese Überarbeitung als Verbesserung aufgenommen. So schrieb etwa Schopenhauer erbost: ?Aber Keiner bilde sich ein, die ,Kritik der reinen Vernunft? zu kennen und einen deutlichen Begriff von Kants Lehre zu haben, wenn er jene nur in der zweiten, oder einer der folgenden Auflagen gelesen hat; das ist schlechterdings unmöglich: denn er hat nur einen verstümmelten, verdorbenen, gewissermaaßen unächten Text gelesen.

STUART, Sir Charles, General.
Mahon: 1798-9. Quarto (320 x 192 mm). Contemporary reversed calf ledger-book, dog-tooth rolled panel in blind to the boards, marbled endpapers, red edgestain; paper watermarked with Britannia within a cartouche surmounted by a crown, dated 1796 within the band, above crowned "GR" containing 46 pages of neat, highly legible manuscript, the rest blank. Rubbed and with some stripping, joints cracked to the cords but holding, spine chipped and lifting towards the tail, contents lightly browned, but overall very good. It is rare indeed that British Military History throws up a general who seriously could be considered as an exemplar of Sun Tzu's Sage Commander. And it is perhaps not particularly surprising, in view of the generally sanguinary tendencies of the historians of the British Army, that his greatest feat "being bloodless, has been absolutely forgotten" (Fortescue, History of the British Army, IV p.619). The possession of Minorca was one of the keys to British Mediterranean and world strategy, "It was the short-lived French conquest of Minorca in 1756 which marked for the British the real commencement of the Seven Years' War. Admiral Byng, who was made a scapegoat for the island's loss, would be tried and shot to encourage other British commanders never to forget the Mediterranean's absolute centrality to British imperial pretensions, sea-power, and trade." (Colley Captives p.70) Stuart's management of this amphibious expedition to re-secure the island for Britain was exemplary and is commended by both Clowes - "these excellently managed operations" (IV p.378) - and For … [Click Below for Full Description]
