        Aus der Schöpfung von Herrn J. Haydn." Autogr. musical manuscript.

      Arnsdorf, 6. X. 1800. - Oblong folio. 5 pp. (4 ff., a full sheet folded twice). Four voices with lyrics. From part II of Joseph Haydn's oratorio: the trio "Zu dir, o Herr, blickt alles auf" ("Poco Adagio"), arranged by the composer's brother for his Arnsdorf male quartet. The caption as well as the postscript (with a statement of provenance) are added by the flautist and violist Georg Johann Schinn (1768-1833), a student and friend of Michael Haydn's: "Von Herrn M. Haydn für 4 Männerstimmen arrangirt zu Armsdorf am 6ten October 1800. Vom Herrn P. Werigand Rettensteiner Pfarrer in Armsdorf die Original Partitur davon erhalten als Hochzeitgeschenk im 2. Dezbr. 1802". - From 1763 onwards, Joseph Haydn's younger brother served for 40 years as leader of the orchestra of Sigismund von Schrattenbach, the Salzburg Archbishop. The Arnsdorfer Benedictine monk Rettensteiner was a close friend who prepared German lyrics, copies, and adaptations for the male choir. For Michael Haydn he also translated numerous pieces of Latin liturgical music into German and collected material on Haydn's life and works. Much of this was used for the earliest biography of Michael Haydn, published by Schinn in 1808 (in collaboration with F. J. Otter). - Traces of an old vertical fold. Untrimmed, the final two leaves remaining uncut.

        Visions et revelations de Mr. Gleyo missionnaire en Chine. Pendant les huit années quil a eté en prison pour la cause de la religion, depuis l’an 1769 jusqu'en l’an 1777.

      [Probably France, ca. 1800]. - Manuscript (brown ink) on paper. 2 vols. 8vo. (Title page), 445 (but: 444) pp. (Title page), 446-764 pp., 91, (2) pp. Bound in 18th-century vellum manuscript over boards. All edges red. A manuscript written in a single, unidentified hand during the last years of the 18th century, describing Gleyo's imprisonment in Ching-Tou, then Yuin-Tchang. - J.-F. Gleyo was born in Saint-Brieuc, the son of master mariner François Gleyo, and became a Priest of St. Sulpice. He sailed from Lorient to China in 1764, first arriving in Macao, where he learned Chinese and became associated with the evangelical work of the missionary Alary. In 1769 he was denounced and accused of links with the Pélén-Kiao rebels. Imprisoned and abused for several years, he owed his survival to his faith and mystical visions. He was released in 1777 after a Portuguese Jesuit mathematician intervened with the Emperor and resumed his apostolic labours. In his General History of the Foreign Missions, Launay states of Gleyo that "he recalls the great contemplatives, the most intrepid apostles, saints, and other confessors of the faith." The present manuscript recounts his encarceration and the consolations he received from heaven. It is sprinkled with Latin sentences and Chinese terms (especially in his letters written to Jean-Martin Moÿe after his release, included as a final section at the end of the second volume, with separate page numbers). The letters were published in the famous Jesuit collection of "Lettres édifiantes et curieuses". The original manuscript is kept in the Archives des Séminaires des Missions Étrangères, and a copy by various hands exists in the library of the Seminary of St. Sulpice; it is very likely that the present manuscript was copied from one of these sources. It is not listed in the catalogue of Manuscripts in the National Library and is thus of the utmost rarity. - Provenance: from the library of Jean R. Perrette with his bookplate on the pastedown.

        Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier. „Der Bergbau“.

      wohl Bà hmen, um 1800. - circa 32,5 x 21 cm. 316 Seiten, 6 Blatt, 14 weisse Blatt Halb-Leder d. Zt. "Umfangreiche Handschrift, deren längerer erster Teil angeblich aus einer Abschrift besteht eines "älteren Manuskriptes als Abhandlung und Unterricht über alle beim Bergbaue vorkommenden Gegenstände und Personen für mich Ant. Phil. Bà hm.“ Die Handschrift ist von einer Hand und endet auf S. 312. Ob der Text genau so auch verà ffentlicht ist, konnten wir nicht feststellen. Der Text behandelt Metalle und Gesteine, den Bau von Stollen und Gruben, die Einteilung der Zeche, Anbrüche, die verschiedenen Arbeiter und ihre Aufgaben, Ausbeute und Ãœberschuss, Waschen und Aufbereiten, das Schmelzen vermischter Erze, Bau verschiedener Öfen etc. Besonderen Wert gewinnt das Manuskript dann durch ein angehängtes Kapitel, eine „Kurze Uibersicht des joachimsthaler Amalgamir Werkes“. Dieses ist von einer anderen Hand geschrieben und beginnt: „Die von dem H. Hofrathe Baron v. Born in Deutschland erfundne und in dem Jahre 1786 von dem k. k. Berginspektor und Gubernial-Raths H. v. Rà ßler in Joachimsthal eingeführte, und seit dieser Zeit so mannigfaltige Abänderungen erlittene Amalgamation enthält folgende Arbeiten.“ - Folgt eine genaue Beschreibung der in Joachimsthal angewendeten Techniken, am Schluss datiert und signiert „Joachimsthal am 3. November 1806 Anton Hellmich k. k. Amalgamationsverwalter.“ Anton Ignaz Hellmich wurde laut dem Joachimsthaler Taufbuch 1771 geboren, er war laut dem „Schematismus für das Kà nigreich Bà hmen aus dem Jahr 1815 „k. k. Oberamtsbeisitzer und Amalgamationsverwalter“; im Jahr 1819 lautet der Titel „provisorischer k. k. Bergverwalter, dann Oberamts- und Berggerichtsbeisitzer“, im Schematismus von 1825 „prov. k. k. Bergverwalter und Bergoberamtsbeisitzer“, 1838 war er laut dem „Hof- und Staats-Schematismus“ dann „Bergoberamts- und Districts-Berggerichts-Verweser“ sowie „k. k. Bergrath“. Kurz nachher dürfte er gestorben sein. Während es sich bei dem Bergbau-Teil also um eine (publizierte? veränderte? bearbeitete?) Abschrift handelt, besitzt der angehängte Teil über das in Joachimsthal angewendete Amalgamations-Verfahren Quellenwert.

A neat former owner inscription ?Master E Hughes 1813.? Illustrated with numerous wood-cut illustrations. There is little browned throughout, with the odd marks to leaves, original pictorial boards, marked. The spine has recently been repaired. Otherwise in very good condition. . First edition was printed in 1715 and was a best seller and reprinted many times but by different printers and booksellers. This particular book is a similar publication to lot 71 (estimate £550-700) In ?The Marjorie Moon Collection of Early English Children?s Books? Christies auction catalogue June 1995. The illustration in the Christie?s catalogue confirms that the page numbering appears to be the same.

Champante and Whitrow London ? this copy ?Sold also by Messrs. Jacob and Halse, London? Neither are dated, but this copy does contain an inscription ?Master E. Hughes 1813? written neatly in ink.

      [Philadelphia], 1800. 18pp. plus two folding tables. Dbd. Light scattered foxing. Worming in inner margin of several leaves, not affecting text. Very good. Congressional report on the first two federally operated Indian trading houses, with correspondence from Secretary of War James McHenry, additional correspondence relating to Indian agent John Chisholm, and two large folding tables. The Indian trading houses, known collectively as the Indian Factory System, were a chain of government- owned stores that operated from 1795 to 1822, making a variety of products available to Indians at cost in exchange for native goods. The factories, which were intended to promote peace, offset the British and Spanish influence, and protect Indians from exploitation by private traders, were distributed along the frontier, from Georgia to present-day Michigan, and received large federal appropriations for their operations. For several years after the 1795 and 1796 acts establishing the system were first passed, only two factories were operating: one that was originally established at Coleraine, Georgia and moved to Fort Wilkinson in 1797, and the other at the Tellico Blockhouse on the Tennessee frontier. In the present report, the House committee appointed to review the system states that, while important information concerning the capital stock at the two factories has not been provided by their agents, enough data is present in James McHenry's report and the attached tables to recommend extending the 1796 act for one year, using only existing capital. The act would be renewed again the following year, and in 1802 several additional trading houses would be established. The pamphlet also includes a letter by McHenry relating to John D. Chisholm, who had been granted an Indian trader's license apparently by mistake; McHenry asks that the license be withdrawn and submits a letter by the rather unschooled Chisholm to Secretary of State Thomas Pickering and Pickering's reply which had been wrongly represented as a recommendation for Chisholm. A very interesting set of documents from the earliest phases of the federal Indian trading-house program. EVANS 38824. NAIP w021621. DAH II, pp.238-39.

Hampton’s letter reads: “D Sir, Agreeably to your request I herewith annex a short sketch of the proceedings during the invasion & siege of Curacao – On the 17th August 1800 I arrived in the harbour of Amsterdam in the Island of Curacao where I found five strong privateers, & from eight to twelve hundred French troops from Guadaloupe and all the inhabitants under arms to oppose them in case of an attack, at the same time there was an embargo which prevented any Vessel from departing. On the 3d September the French left the harbour with ten vessels full of men and was joined in the offing by three more direct from Guadaloupe – On their departure Governor Leuffer dismissed all his Militia troops and kept the few dutch regular soldiers, about four hundred in number to defend the place in the fortifications in case of an attack. – On the 4th at night the signals of alarm were given and on the 5th in the morning it was confirmed that the French had landed at St. Michaels and got possession of the two forts at that place, to convince myself of the truth of this report, I walked from Amsterdam to St. Michaels and back, the distance about sixteen miles & on my return found that it was the opinion of Mr. Phillips and the Governor that the only hope of relief was to dispatch a Boat to the American Commodore at St. Kitts for assistance, I therefore furnished that Boat with American sailors & spar’d Mr. Brown my Mate to go as Navigator, who was absent on that business near one month & was the means of the Merrimack & Patapsco coming to the relief of the Island – (see the instruction to him No 1 -) On the 7th the French made their attack on the dutch troops who were our only defence – At this time I went with my boat & transported from the French to the dutch shore six boat loads of soldiers & with my ship’s company went into Fort Amsterdam to make our defence, the Governor & his party in their retreat left a number of punts or flat bottom boats on the French shore, sufficient to enable the French party to cross the harbour – the whole of these I removed under the fire of the French guns & secured them on the dutch side of the harbour, with the assistance of only one of my men – this circumstance is mentioned by Mr. Phillips in his letter to the Secretary of State (No. 2). During the whole of this night myself & people at the particular desire of Governor Leuffer kept guard and was caution’d to remember the darkness of the night and the treachery of Toulon – This circumstance convinced me that the Governor had not confidence in his Officers which with other marks of disaffection satisfied my mind of the necessity of immediate relief for this reason I concluded to [write for further description and details]

A trifle rubbed to surfaces and a little creasing to joints, else a fine copy. Kinnaird amorial bookplate, with manuscript shelfmark, to FEP. A collection of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century pamphlets, featuring most notably one of the rarities of the Lord Nelson canon: English poet, artist and socialite Ellis Cornelia Knight's famous ode celebrating Nelson's victory at the Battle of the Nile in the summer of 1798. The volume, almost certainly bound together out of utility rather than any coherence, contains several other significant first editions of eighteenth-century works of literature (Pratt's Humanity on the inequities of slavery and Browne's famous work on the immortality of the soul), important titles in eighteenth-century history (John Almon's Letter is an examination of the failure of the British in the American revolutionary wars) and two educational rarities. Ellis Cornelia Knight (1757-1837) had spent much of the final decade of the eighteenth-century on the continent with her mother, Lady Knight. The final year of the latter's life saw the pair living in Naples and, following Nelson's evacuation of the Bourbon monarchy in 1798, in Palermo. There and most especially after her mother's death, Knight, the daughter of Sir Joseph Knight, rear-admiral of the White, proved a 'daughter of the waves' who revelled in the company and protections of Nelson, the English ambassador to the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies Sir William Hamilton, and his wife Emma. It was thus in close proximity to of one of the most notorious love affairs of English history, between Nelson and the diplomat's young wife, that Knight composed this celebration of the English hero of the Nile. She acquired the epithet of 'Nelson's poet laureate' from his fellow naval officers, but as the dedication of The Battle of the Nile to Sir William Hamilton indicates, was very much the literary organ of the trio. The poem was first printed at Naples in 1799 in what must have been a very limited, and almost certainly a private print run; the work is not recorded in ESTC and institutionally is represented by the British library copy only. The history of this rare poem, and indeed the company in which it was composed, did not end with the first edition, nor in Naples. After a somewhat contentious involvement in the domestic politics of the Bourbon dynasty, which culminated in Nelson charging and executing a Neapolitan admiral in the Bay of Naples, and quite startling displays of caprice verging on insubordination, Nelson was ordered back to England. This coincided, rather helpfully, with the granting of Sir William Hamilton's request for relief from his post. As a result, Nelson, the Hamiltons and a group of English fellow travellers voyaged to England by way of central Europe in the September of 1800. The group visited the Esterhazy family and their court composer Joseph Haydn at Eisenstadt, and were honoured by a performance of the latter's Missa in Angustiis, a mass composed when all of Europe and especially Vienna was threatened by Napoleon but first performed when Europe was digesting the impact of Nelson's victory at the Nile. Unsurprisingly given the association, Missa in Angustiis has become known as the 'Nelson Mass'. Slightly lesser known is the cantata 'Lines from the Battle of the Nile' that Haydn produced, presumably after meeting Knight during the group's September visit and reputedly for performance by soprano Emma Hamilton, with lines taken from the former's poem celebrating Nelson's triumph. The publication of the second edition of the poem in Vienna by the widow of famous associate of Mozart, Ignaz Alberti, must surely have been related to this fabulous combination of the literature, music, romance and heroism that accompanied the English travellers' visit to Austria in that summer of 1800. It is almost as rare and most likely printed once again in very small numbers; not recorded by ESTC, OCLC locates copies at Harvard, NMM and Strasbourg only, with COPAC adding another at Oxford. No copy of either is recorded in recent auction records. . Second edition. Quarto.

        The Progress of the Pilgrim Good Intent In Jacobinical Times

      London - John Hatchard, 1800 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. Three?scarce Christian works from the Georgian era?bound as one. With a First Edition of The Progress of the Pilgrim Good Intent in Jacobinical Times. ??Direct from the Regency library of Elizabeth Greenly, later Lady Elizabeth Coffin Greenly. Elizabeth Greenly, born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, was a noted and varied collector. She kept prolific diaries from 1784 until her death in 1839 which included her responses to current events and occasions in her daily life. Among the diaries many names and anecdotes of celebrities of the time appear, including Lord Byron, Marie Atoinette, Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More. She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaeology. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector. ?These works come directly from the library of the Titley Court estate. ?The Progress of the Pilgrim was a best-selling sequel to John Bunyan's Christian Allegory The Pilgrim's Progress. ?The hero of Burges' narrative is 'Good Intent' the great, great grandson of Bunyan's hero 'Christian. ' The text was originally published anonymously, and this edition has no author attributed. The Fashionable World Displayed is?another?Christian text written by John Owen, the Nonconformist?church leader. ?This work discusses several aspects of life such as Government, Laws, Religion, Morality and?Education. A Letter?is an?attack on Adam Smith's life of David Hume. Horne attempts to refute Hume's contempt for?Christian?belief. ?E H Greenly's inscription to the verso of the front endpaper states the?titles of the three volumes she had bound as one. Condition: In a quarter mottled calf with paper covered boards. ?Externally,?generally smart. ?Rubbing to spine, particularly to?the head and tail.

      in der Steinerschen Buchhandlung, Winterthur 1800 - Erste Ausgabe. 2 Bände (vollständig). Winterthur, in der Steinerschen Buchhandlung, 1800. Octavo. Kollation: Band 1 - Frontispiz, XVI, 2 Bl., 335 Seiten plus Errata. / Band 2 - XVI, 1 Bl., 407 Seiten plus Errata. Hardcover / Originale, ganz schlichte und interessante Verlags- Interimsbindungen. Sehr guter Zustand. Vereinzelt stockfleckig. Unbeschnitten (aber aufgeschnitten). Handschriftlicher Besitzvermerk aus dem Jahre 1908: "R. Linder, cand. theol.". Lavater wurde am 15. November 1741 in Zürich als Sohn eines Arztes und als 12. Kind geboren und wuchs in der spezifisch zürcherischen Tradition der Aufklärung geprägt von republikanischer Gesinnung auf. Er durchlief die übliche Theologenausbildung seiner Zeit. Am Gymnasium Carolinum wurde er insbesondere durch seine Lehrer Johann Jakob Bodmer und Johann Jakob Breitinger geprägt und zu ersten dichterischen Versuchen angeregt. Aufsehen erregte Lavater 1762, im Jahr seiner Ordination, als er mit seinen Freunden Johann Heinrich Füssli und Felix Hess in einer anonymen Flugschrift dem Landvogt Grebel Amtsmissbrauch vorwarf. Dies führte zwar zu dessen Absetzung und Bestrafung, zwang die Verfasser aber zum zeitweisen Verlassen Zürichs. Während seiner Deutschlandreise lernte Lavater die Dichter Gellert, Gleim, Ramler und Klopstock kennen. Nach der Rückkehr gab Lavater die moralische Wochenschrift Der Erinnerer (1765-1767) und die Schweizerlieder (1768) heraus. Der eigentliche schriftstellerische Durchbruch gelang ihm mit seinen vierbändigen Aussichten in die Ewigkeit, in Briefen an Herrn Johann Georg Zimmermann, königlicher Großbrittanischer Leibarzt in Hannover (1768-1778). Hier entwickelte Lavater ein verinnerlichtes Frömmigkeitskonzept. 1769 wurde Lavater Diakon und 1775 Pfarrer an der Waisenhauskirche, 1778 Diakon und 1787 Pfarrer an der St. Peter-Kirche in Zürich. Das Geheime Tagebuch (1771) und die Unveränderten Fragmente aus dem Tagebuch eines Beobachters seiner Selbst (1773) sind ein bedeutendes Zeugnis psychologischer Selbstbeobachtung, der sogenannten Erfahrungsseelenkunde. Seine Predigten, die christliche Grundprobleme mit den damals aktuellen Zeitfragen in Verbindung brachten, fanden auf der einen Seite eine begeisterte Anhängerschaft, aber auch schroffe Ablehnung. Anfänglich eher rationalistisch orientiert, gelangte Lavater zu einer christologisch-biblischen Ausrichtung. Unter dem Einfluss von Charles Bonnets Palingénésie, die er 1769/70 ins Deutsche übersetzte, vertritt er die Ansicht, dass die sinnlich-leibliche Erkenntnis zum göttlichen Wesen führt, wie es sich im Individuum darstellt. Internationales Ansehen verschaffte sich Lavater mit seinem Hauptwerk Physiognomische Fragmente, zur Beförderung der Menschenkenntnis und Menschenliebe (1775-1778 in 4 Bänden), an dem unter anderem auch Goethe mitarbeitete. Der Verfasser vertrat darin die Überzeugung, dass die hauptsächlich durch die Silhouette zu gewinnende Kenntnis der unbewegten Gesichtszüge des Menschen Aufschluss über den jeweiligen Charakter gibt. Die Physiognomik bildete demnach den einzigen Zugang zur Beurteilung des Wesens jedes Menschen, seines "dreifachen Lebens", das sich aus "Kraft" (Physiologie), "Verstand" (Intellekt) und "Herz" (Moral) zusammensetze. Satirische Verunglimpfungen, Polemik und Spott über Lavaters Lehre wie über seinen stark polarisierend wirkenden Enthusiasmus blieben nicht aus (u. a. von Georg Christoph Lichtenberg und Moses Mendelssohn). Umstritten blieb ausserdem Lavaters Einsatz zugunsten der "Wasserschauerin" Elisabeth Tüscher aus Biel, des Spiritisten Emanuel von Swedenborg, des Exorzisten und Priesters Johann Jakob Gassner, des "tierischen Magnetismus" des Franz Anton Mesmer, des Phrenologen Franz Joseph Gall oder des Abenteurers Alessandro Cagliostro. In den von ihnen erzeugten Phänomenen glaubte Lavater das Walten göttlicher Kräfte zu erkennen. Dies entfremdete ihn von den meisten Naturwissenschaftlern, aber auch von Goethe und Herder, machte ihn aber gleichzeitig bei einem grossen Pub [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Marília de Dirceo. Por T.A.G. Terceira Parte.

      Lisbon, Na Offic. de Joaquim Thomas de Aquino Bulhoens, 1800 . - 8°, later marbled wrappers (somewhat frayed). Small woodcut vignette on title page. Uncut. Title page with soiling and dampstains. Occasional spotting and light but extensive dampstaining. Overall in good condition. Very small old unidentified monogramed stamp on title page. Small oblong black on white printed paper ticket of R.B. Rosenthal, Lisbon, in upper outer corner of verso of front wrapper. [3]-110 pp., (1 blank l.). Lacks the half-title. *** FIRST EDITION of part III; Very rare; more or less in the same realm of rarity as the rare first and second editions of part I (1792 and 1799, respectively), or the rare first edition of part 2 (1799). The extreme rarity of this work has caused significant bibliographic confusion about editions and contents. The 1792 first edition of part I was unknown to many bibliographers (e.g. Innocêncio, Varnhagen, etc.), and its existence was not revealed until 1879, in an article by Valle Cabral that appeared in the Revista Brasileira I, 411. The two parts of the 1799 edition were not known until 1923, when their existence was announced in an article by Alberto de Oliveira in the Revista da língua portuguêsa nº26, 81-5. The third part, of doubtful authenticity appeared in Lisbon, 1800. Since beginning in business in 1969, we have handled 3 copies of the extremely rare first edition of part I, and we have also three times seen on the market and handled copies of the 1799 edition. Regarding the present first edition of the third part, we have also only seen three copies on the market since 1969. There is confusion regarding the collation, no doubt due to the rarity. Rodrigues says that it contains 3 preliminary leaves, followed by 110 pages. Borba de Moraes says there are VII pp., with the half title, title page, and "Prologo", with p. [viii] blank, followed by 110 pp. In reality, the blank p. [viii] is followed p. [9], which is the beginning of the main text. The catchwords, signatures, and logic of the text support the conclusion that our copy is complete except for the half title; it does include the final integral blank leaf."If the 'Escola Mineira' had done nothing else, it could still be said that in Tomás António Gonzaga it had produced the most popular love poet who has written in Portuguese. Gonzaga's Marília de Dirceu is second only to The Lusiads of Camões in the number of editions it has had. . . . down to the 1920's there had been a total of thirty-four" (Putnam, Marvelous Journey, p. 87). The word "popular," when applied to the poetry of Gonzaga, should by no means be taken in any derogatory sense. Putnam continues, "There is no doubt that Tomás António Gonzaga is one of the fine love poets of the world. He is of the lineage of Petrarch; and if one had no other reason for learning Portuguese, the desire to read his poems would be sufficient motive" (p. 89).Marília marks the transition of Portuguese and Brazilian literature from classicism to Romanticism, and in the words of Veríssimo, it "is of exceptional importance in Brazilian literature," forming "the supreme book of love, the noblest, the purest, the most deeply felt, the most beautiful which has been written in that tongue since Bernardim Ribeiro and the sonnets of Camões." Saraiva and Lopes elaborate: "com a sua variedade estrófica, o tirmo nitidamente marcado por versos curtos, rimas e estribilhos, com a grande simplificação do aparato mitológico, tornaram-no, em vésperas do Romantismo, o mais popular e reeditado dos nossos poetas de amor. . . . Em algumas destas composições projecta-se o espectáculo, familiar ao autor, do trabalho dos negros na mineração e culturas.

        The Trial of Jane Leigh Perrot, Wife of James Leigh Perrot, Esq; Charged with Stealing a Card of Lace in the Shop of Elizabeth Gregory, Haberdasher and Milliner, at Bath . .

      Taunton: Printed by and for Thomas Norris; London: Sold by Carpenter, E. Newbery, Hurst and Co., [et al], (1800), 1800. First edition; there were two subsequent editions. ESTC T108778 records five copies in the British Isles (BL [2], Morrab, Oxford, Somerset; and five in North America (HEH, Columbia, Free Library of Philadelohia, Harvard [2] and Morgan). Wrappers wrinkled; very good copy.. 8vo, later brown paper wrappers, typed label on the upper wrapper, 43 pages. Woodcut plan after the title-page; without half-title. A trial for the crime of shoplifting which achieved great notoriety in its time and remains interesting today for the fact that the accused, Jane Leigh Perrot, was the aunt of novelist Jane Austen and a regular presence in her life in Bath. There were three witnesses for the prosecution and over twelve (primarily character witnesses) for the defense, in addition to Mrs. Perrot's statement on her behalf. The jury was out for about fifteen minutes and then rendered a verdict of "not guilty." Some have concluded that Mrs. Leigh Perrot was framed, that the shop's proprietors inserted the card of lace into her purchases to blackmail the wealthy Leigh Perrots. Others think that she got off lightly because she was from a prominent, wealthy family. In addition to the testimony, there is a plan of the shop and list of the jurors, counselors (6) and solicitors (2). Contemporary ink signature on the title-page of William Burgh, who has written in the margin of page 16, commenting on the proceedings: "Why did he not challenge it then? There was a Possibility of a Mistake, the opportunity of rectifying it should have been given. It now looks as if she was suffered to take it away in order to ground a malicious prosecution, or with a hope to be silenced by Reward."

        Dordrecht - Samuel Hutchinson.

      DORDRECHT, HAVENSTAD VAN BELANGGezicht op de stad vanaf de Maas uit ca. 1800. Gouache op papier van de hand van Samuel Hutchinson. Gesigneerd op een stuk drijfhout linksonder. Afm. 37,5 x 50 cm.De Rijn- en Maasvaart kwamen na 1750, nagenoeg tot stilstand en de Dordtse bevolking krimpt, maar hoe zwaar de misère voor de stad en haar bewoners ook geweest mag zijn, de fundamenten van de stedelijke economie zijn er niet onherstelbaar door aangetast. Als havenplaats krabbelde Dordrecht aan het einde van de 18e eeuw weer overeind. De stad bezat nog altijd de reputatie een binnenhaven van allure te zijn. Dankzij het stapelrecht was er sprake van een groter aandeel in de Rijnvaart dan Rotterdam en wordt pas na 1813 ingehaald.Prijs: € 2.950,- (incl lijst, BTW margeregeling).
