      [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D. Chisholm, who had been granted an Indian trader's license apparently by mistake; McHenry asks that the license be withdrawn and submits a letter by the rather unschooled Chisholm to Secretary of State Thomas Pickering and Pickering's reply which had been wrongly represented as a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.

        Autograph Letter Signed, Philadelphia, December 29, 1800 to Robert Ralston, describing the French Invasion of Curaçao

      quarto 4 pages, accompanied by fair copy of letter from Hampton to a Mr. Brown, dated Curaçao, September 5, 1800, 1 ½ pages and a fair copy of letter to The Secretary of State, signed B. H. Phillips, dated Curaçao, October 25, 1800, 2 ½ pages. Each item in very good clean and legible condition. Three items, seven pages total. A very interesting and highly detailed letter regarding the invasion of Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles, in September 1800, dated Philadelphia, from William Hampton to Robert Ralston. Hampton was the commander of the merchant brig, Sally, of Philadelphia, Robert Ralston to whom the letter is addressed was the ships owner. Captain Hampton took an active role during the fight to drive the French off, for which he was acclaimed in the contemporary letter copy addressed to the Secretary of State, John Marshall, Marshall in 1800 helped negotiate the Convention of 1800, also known as the Treaty of Mortefontaine, which put an end to the skirmishes between the two countries in the Caribbean which had been going on since the XYZ affair. The type of skirmishes described in these manuscripts. 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.

      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. Tudo isto se exprime através de uma arte estilística mais insinuante e segura, um artifício que ainda o não parecia, em comparação com os gostos mais ostensivamente eruditos da Arcádia" (História da literatura portuguesa [1976], p. 697). And according to Jong, "Gonzaga must be counted among the very best lyric poets Brazil has had. After nearly two centuries, [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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."

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).

        Historical Account of the Substances which have been used to Describe Events and to Convey Ideas from the Earliest Date to the Invention of Paper. Printed on the First Useful Paper manufactured soley from Straw.

      91 pp. Small folio, orig. edition binding of straight-grained blue morocco (joints a little rubbed), spine stamped in blind. [London]: T. Burton, 1800. First edition, and a very fine copy in the original edition binding of blue straight-grained morocco, of this classic work on the search for new materials to manufacture paper. This copy has been signed by Koops at the bottom of the dedication leaf. At the same time as the first papermaking machines, invented in France, were being built in England, Koops was experimenting with the use of straw and wood for papermaking in Bermondsey. He succeeded in the first, large-scale, commercial production of paper made from straw and wood. Koops was given permission by the King to be the only distributor of paper made from alternative paper sources in the hope that he could help solve England's paper crisis; however, the times were not right for this early attempt at recycling and Koops went bankrupt. The book describes ancient equivalents of paper, methods that had been tried over the ages to find paper which would withstand the attack of insects, data on French exports of paper into England, and commentary on Koops' attempts to produce paper from sources other than rags. "Not much is known of Koops, but his work as a experimenter with new papermaking materials at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution is justly famous. He writes of the work of Schäffer, Guettard, de Lisle, Seba, and Senger in the search for new materials, and spends much time discussing the use of conferva for papermaking fibers although emphasizing the availability of straw."-Schlosser, An Exhibition of Books on Papermaking, 21. Fine copy. The two preliminary and two terminal endpapers are also made from wood. With the signature in pencil of Sir Francis Freeling, secretary of the Post Office and an original member of the Roxburghe Club. Armorial bookplate of Joseph Neeld (1754-1828), and the modern bookplate of A.R.A. Hobson. ❧ Hunter, The Literature of Papermaking, pp. 47-48. .

Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 694. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 2511. Med hyllningsverser av Joannes M. Westhius. Sveriges rikshistoria framställd parallellt med världshistorien och författad av ärkebiskopen Laurentius Paulinus (1565-1646) som anlade det första tryckeriet i Strängnäs. Bring noterar att han återger och till och med broderar ut Johannes Magnus redan fantastiska fabler om Sveriges historia. Arbetet innehåller även en ganska utförlig geografisk beskrivning över Sverige och dess provinser. En passage om att Rigas borgare förberedde ett förräderi mot svenska kronan 1626 föranledde klagomål från Riga. Paulinus beordrades att trycka om arket, men något sådant omtryck är inte känt. Lindroth skriver att arbetet författades under Paulinus sista år som biskop i Strängnäs: "Den lägger inte många tum till hans växt, till typ och genomförande är den traditionell, nästan reaktionär. Efter ett entusiastiskt lovtal över historien som en ovärderlig läromästare i dygder och ädla gärningar börjar Laurentius - ungefär som en medeltida klosterbroder - med att teckna den kosmiska bakgrunden. Han låter svensk historia inledas med skapelsen, skildrar efter Genesis universums tillblivelse och kommer slutligen fram till paradiset, det första människoparet och syndafallet. Omsider följer syndafloden och Noak, med vars ättlingar vi redan står på den nationella svenska historiens tröskel. [...] Historia arctoa, så osjälvständig, gör även genom utströdda moraliska exempel ett intryck av pedagogisk mönsterlektion, och så var den också menad"

        Plan d'une partie du cours de la Riviere de Saigon depuis cette ville jusqu'a son embouchure. Plan du port de Candiu situe a la cote de Tsiompa.

      Depot General de Marine, Paris - This unusual circa 1800 sea chart by the Depot de la Marine depicts the Saigon River in modern day Vietnam. The map, divided into two sections, follows the course of the river from Saigon City (Ho Chi Minh City) south to the mouth of the Saigon River and Vung Tau. The port of Candiu is identified on the coast of Tsiompa. Tsiompa refers to the ancient Indochinese kingdom of Champa which existed between the 2nd and 17th century. Vountao (Vung Tao) is exceptionally detailed with beautifully rendered topography to the level of individual fields and plantations. Depth soundings are labeled though out the river and coastal features are noted. The Royal Palace of Saigon is also detailed.Vung Tau, originally known as Tam Thang, earned its name (which means 'anchorage') after European trading ships started frequenting the region during the 14th and 15th centuries. During the late 18th and early 19th century, Malay pirates made this a base. The French Indochinese government named it Cap Saint-Jacques (also noted here). The map is in good condition with minimal wear along the original centerfold. Minor offsetting and some spotting in the margins. Wide margins with original plate mark visible.Depot General de la Marine was a French hydrographic mapping organization similar to the United States Coast Survey or the British Admiralty. Some of the important cartographers associated with the Depot include Jacques Nicholas Bellin and Riobert Bonne. This is a wonderful example of the Depot's extensive work. Sea chart. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 19" x 27.5"

        Leben eines armen Landpredigers, herausgegeben von August Lafontaine. Band 1 und 2 komplett. (= Familiengeschichten 7, 8).

Mit je einem gestochenen Frontispiz und einer gestochenen Titelvignette. Goedeke V, 478f; Killy VII, 110f; Kosch IX, 802f; NDB XIII, 406ff; WG 32. - August Heinrich Julius Lafontaine (1758-1831), der auch unter den Pseudonymen Miltenberg oder Gustav Freier wirkte, erhielt die Grundlagen seiner Bildung und Weltanschauung vor allem aus dem heilen Elternhaus mit Nähe zur aufklärerischen Tradition der Freimaurerei, stand sein Vater doch in freundschaftlichem Kontakt mit Ebert, Gaertner, Zacharias und Lessing. Nach dem Studium der Theologie in Helmstedt und seiner Tätigkeit als Feldprediger in Halle widmete er sich in den folgenden Jahren mit großem Engagement der Schriftstellerei. Goedeke kommentiert Lafontaines Schaffensdrang zynisch: "Schöpfer des weinerlichen Familienromans; seine Werke rührten ihn selbst zum Weinen. So fruchtbar war er, daß er vergaß, was er geschrieben hatte, und seine Erfindungen, die sich in engen Kreisen drehten, mehrfach zum zweiten Male erfand." Tatsächlich gehörte Lafontaine zu den fruchtbarsten und beliebtesten Autoren seiner Zeit, was sich in der begeisterten und treuen Leserschaft seiner über 150 Romane und Erzählungen zeigte. - Einbände tadellos. Schnitte leicht angestaubt und gebräunt, Papier gleichmäßig leicht gebräunt mit schwachem, unscheinbarem Wasserfleck auf einigen Seiten des ersten Bandes. Außergewöhnlich dekoratives und sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar der Erstausgabe. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1490 Kl. 8° (15,5 x 10,5 cm). Sehr dekorative marmorierte Halblederbände der Zeit mit je zwei farbigen goldgeprägten Titelschildern und reicher klassizistischer Goldprägung auf dem Rücken sowie Marmorpapierbezügen auf den Deckeln.
