      [Richmond, 1800. Old fold lines, with small separation at the center cross- fold. Light dampstaining at bottom edge, else very good. In a half morocco slipcase. A rare printing of the Virginia Assembly's instructions to the state's U.S. Senators, explaining their reasons for opposing the Adams administration's expansion of the American army and navy, the Alien and Sedition Acts, and the suspension of trade with France. This broadsheet includes the text of the Virginia Resolutions of 1800, authored by James Madison, which explicitly called on the Congress to repeal the Alien and Sedition Acts, and to curtail the increase in the size of the military. The so-called "Quasi War" with France was a major crisis for the Adams administration, and it had far-reaching policy ramifications. In order to defend against enemies foreign and domestic, Adams called for an increase in the size of the navy, tightened naval laws against France, abrogated treaties with the French and suspended trade with France, called 80,000 militia to active duty, and appointed George Washington commander-in-chief of a revitalized army (with Alexander Hamilton as second-in- command). Most controversially, Adams enacted (with Congressional approval) the "Alien and Sedition Acts," which sought to suppress dissent against the President's policies, and facilitated the deportation of foreigners whose presence was "dangerous to the peace and safety of the United States." The most powerful protests against these measures came in the form of the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions of 1798 authored, respectively, by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. These resolutions asserted the principle of "States Rights" over federal law, arguing for a narrow interpretation of the powers of the federal government, and the right of states to supersede federal authority on Constitutional grounds. Despite their strongly worded opposition, neither the Kentucky nor the Virginia legislatures sought to nullify or obstruct the disputed laws. There was a harsh backlash against the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, with several other states expressing their disapproval. In response, James Madison, then a member of the Virginia Assembly, composed the "Report of 1800." In it Madison backed down slightly from his earlier position (which he claimed had been misunderstood), asserting the right of a state to declare a federal action unconstitutional, but that this would be an expression of opinion not legally binding, simply a way of mobilizing public sentiment. The power to declare an act unconstitutional, Madison now said, resided with the courts. Nonetheless, he argued further that the ultimate power to decide constitutionality resided with the states, that they could override Congressional acts, and also those of the Supreme Court. The Report of 1800 included four resolutions, the full text of which are included in this broadsheet printing of instructions to Senators Mason and Nicholas. The resolutions call for a reduction in the size of the army and navy, and the repeal of the Alien and Sedition Acts. Another of them opposes the proposition that the English Common Law should be seen as a basis for American constitutional law. The broadsheet also records the procedural votes in the Virginia Assembly on each of the four resolutions, noting the names of those who voted for or against each one. The rest of the broadsheet consists of passionate but reasoned arguments against several of the Adams administration's policies. In protesting the expansion of the army and navy, the Virginia Assembly notes that if the United States were to increase its military force in every case of European conflict, "a perpetual standing army would be the certain consequence of the recommendation." It goes on to make a long and cogent argument against the need for a military build-up, quoting several of George Washington's messages as President. The instructions also vigorously oppose the restriction of trade with France as injurious to the Virginia economy, especially with regard to the effect on the tobacco trade. The result of the sanctions, they argue, has been a deep decrease in the price of tobacco, and the monopolization of its trade by the British: "France and the markets supplied, or that could be supplied, through her, consume a very great proportion, of all the tobacco made in the U. States. Great Britain is supposed to consume not more than 10 or 11 thousand hogsheads. The consequence of passing this prohibitory act putting off one part of the continental market in Europe whilst the English fleet under the pretext of blockade, had cut off another, has been to throw almost the whole, of this great, and valuable staple, into the ports of Great-Britain; from which as a belligerent country, re-exportation to other markets, must be made with great difficulty, risk and charges whilst the monopoly thus thrown into a single market, has had the natural effect, of reducing the price of the article far below the usual standard...." Evans confusingly lists this broadsheet twice, once among his entries for 1798 (item 34939) and again for 1800 (item 38953). Since the text includes the four Resolutions of 1800, and notes the date of their passage (January 11 of that year), 1800 is where it properly belongs. Evans ascribes the printing of this broadside to Augustine Davis, the official printer for the Virginia Assembly, and he locates copies at the American Antiquarian Society and the Boston Public Library. While AAS describes theirs in their current on-line catalogue, BPL does not, nor does OCLC or ESTC list the Boston Public Library copy. OCLC records the AAS copy, and locates only one other, at the University of Virginia, as does ESTC. A rare and important statement from the Virginia Assembly against the Alien and Sedition Acts, against the expansion of the army and navy, and protesting the deleterious effects of government sanctions against France on the Virginia economy.

      - Das vorliegende Blatt diente der Montage eines Erd- und eines Himmelsglobus und liefert einen Horizontring sowie vier Polkappen. Der achteckige Horizontring besteht aus mehreren konzentrischen Teilkreisen (Gradteilung, Zodiacus mit lateinischen Bezeichnungen, Kalenderring mit Monatsnamen, 32 Himmelsrichtungen). Die acht Zwickel des Horizontrings sind mit acht, die verschiedenen Wundrichtungen symbolisierenden Köpfen verziert. In seiner Mitte befinden sich vier Polkappen zum Ausschneiden und aufkleben auf einen vorbereiteten Rundkörper, dabei sind jeweils zwei Polkappen für einen Erd- und einen Himmelsglobus bestimmt. Die geschmackvolle Farbgebung der Einzelteile erhöht nicht nur den dekorativen Wert des Blattes, sondern dient auch der einfacheren Lesbarkeit der Information. Die Beschriftungen der einzelnen Messteile sind in deutscher und lateinischer Sprache gehalten. Das vorliegende Blatt ist sprachlich und stilistisch in das Zentrum der deutschen Globenproduktion, Nürnberg, und um 1800 zu datieren. Der bekannteste Globenhersteller am Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts war Johann Georg Klinger (1764-1806), der seine Offizin in den 1790er Jahren gründete. Klinger fertigte seine Globen in Zusammenarbeit mit Kupferstecher Johann Bernhard Bauer (1752-1839) und bot diese in verschiedenen Sprachen und Durchmessern an. Zunächst verbesserte Klinger die alten Globen des in Schwabach bei Nürnberg tätigen Globenherstellers Johann Philipp Andreae (ca. 1700- nach 1759). In den Jahren 1790 und 1792 brachte Klinger schließlich eigene Globenpaare heraus, die 1803 und 1805 neu aufgelegt wurden. Für seine Globen griff er u.a. auf die Ergebnisse des englischen Weltumseglers James Cook (1728-1779) und des französischen Astronomen Charles Messier (1730-1817) zurück. Die Firma Klingers wurde nach seinem Tod von seiner Witwe unter dem Namen J.G. Klinger’sche Kunsthandlung weitergeführt und im Jahr 1831 von dem Kupferstecher Johann Paul Dreykorn (1805-1875) übernommen. Carl Casimir Abel (1804-?) trat der Kunsthandlung 1852 bei. Unter dem aktualisierten Namen C. Abel Klinger Kunsthandlung operierte die Firma bis zum Ausbruch des 1. Weltkriegs. Johann Georg Klinger produzierte seine Globen für ein breites Publikum. Die hohe Nachfrage an Globen bzw. Globenpaaren war, neben einem allgemeinen Interesse, auch der Aufnahme von Geographie und Astronomie in das reguläre Schulcurriculum geschuldet. Erdgloben dienten als Lernobjekte sowie Anzeiger neuer Erkenntnisse über die Welt und ihrer Beschaffenheit in kompakter Form. Zu einem Erdglobus gehörte in der Regel auch immer ein passender Himmelsglobus. Erst zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts nahm diese Praktik langsam ab, da der technische Fortschritt immer komplexere astronomische Informationen lieferte, die auf einem Globus schwer festzuhalten waren. Weiterhin machten immer messgenauer funktionierende Uhren den alltäglichen Gebrauch der Sterne zur Messung der Zeit weitestgehend obsolet. Im Kontext des breiten Interesses an Geographie und Astronomie ist auch eine Werbeanzeige Klingers von 1793 zu sehen, in der u.a. ein Atlas zur Bildung von Laien und Schulkindern angepriesen wirde, zu dem auf Wunsch auch ein Paar Globen hinzugekauft werden konnten: „Ein Atlaß für ganz Europa für Bürger und Landschulen in 15 Blättern mit gestochenen deutschen Lettern [ ]. Auch werden auf Verlangen zu obige Attlaß eine Erd= und eine Himmels: Kugel zu 4 Zoll in Durchmesser darzu verfertiget." (Kaiserlich privilegirter Reichs-Anzeiger Nr. 39, 14. August 1793, Sp. 323). Die hier von Klinger angepriesenen Miniatur-Globen (ca. 10 cm Durchmesser) dienten dem vereinfachten Studium der Geographie und Astronomie. Diese Globen, deren verschiedene Bestandteile auf Einzelblättern gedruckt wurden - wie dem hier vorliegenden fragmentarischen „Bausatz" – entsprechen etwa der in der Anzeige genannten Größe (der innere Durchmesser des Horizontrings beträgt ca. 13 cm) und dienten wohl einem ähnlichen Verwendungszweck.

        Josef von Führich(1800-1876). Das Gebet des Herrn, Vollständige Folge 9 Rad.

      - Josef von Führich (1800 Kratzau-Wien 1876). Das Gebet des Herrn, Vollständige Folge von 9 Radierungen. um 1853 . Neun Radierungen auf Papier, Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert. -- Beschreibung: -- Neun Radierungen auf Papier, Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert. Auf dem Titelblatt si und bezeichnet: "Das Gebeth des Herrn" und "Ioseph Führich inv. & fecit.", im Unterrand mit Druckvermerk: "Prag 1840 P. Bohmanns Erben. Druck v. J. Rudl 1853". -- Größe/Size: -- 23,5 x 21 cm. -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand. Gereinigt. -- Weitere Beschreibung: -- Auch wenn Führich selbst den immensen Einfluss, den die Graphik von Dürer auf ihn hatte, nie verleugnete und auch Peter von Cornelius' Radierungen zu Goethes Faust auf den jungen Künstler eingewirkt haben, so präsentieren sich die Radierungen der hier gezeigten Folge auf ganz eigene Art. Der enorm feinen, fast schon ins Malerische übergehenden Durcharbeitung der Druckplatte bei Cornelius setzt Führich einen groben, viel stärker auf den Umriss fokussierenden Strich entgegen. Stellenweise erinnern die Radierungen an einen fein ausgeführten Holzschnitt. Auf Licht- und Schattenkontraste verzichtet er fast vollständig, die breit nebeneinander liegenden Striche sind mehr Strukturraster als Objektmodulation. Dadurch entsteht eine gewisse Flächigkeit, die durch Führichs geschickte Verwendung der graphischen Technik aber nicht flach, sondern fokussierend wirkt. Alles tritt gleichberechtigt nebeneinander, nichts verschwindet im Tiefenraum der Darstellung. So ergibt sich eine Oberfläche, die in ihrer Klarheit von erstaunlicher Prägnanz ist. Führich schafft hier den Ausgleich zwischen einer stark abstrahierenden Umrisslinie und einer auf Tonwerte bedachten Durcharbeitung. Dies führt zu einer unmittelbar klar verständlichen Bildsprache, die weder verflachend noch überfrachtend ist. Führich hat diese Art der Radierung seit 1819 von seinem Lehrer Josef Bergler in Prag vermittelt bekommen, dessen druckgraphisches Werk ganz ähnliche Strukturen aufweist, auch wenn er nie diese zwingende Unmittelbarkeit erreicht, die Führich gelingt. Berglers barocke Beschwingtheit verleiht seinen Blättern eine gewisse Gefälligkeit, die Führich zugunsten der emotionalen Einfühlung und Einarbeitung durch Klarheit reduziert. Führich hat die vorliegende Folge erstmals 1826 in Prag bei Bohmanns Erben veröffentlicht. Es folgte eine verkleinerte Version 1832 sowie eine zweite Auflage der großen Version 1840, wieder bei Bohmanns Erben. Eine dritte Auflage wurde bei Manz in Regensburg 1855 gedruckt. Unsere Auflage von 1853, gedruckt von Eduard Josef Rudl (1819 Prag 1855), ist bisher noch nicht verzeichnet gewesen und belegt damit das ungebrochene Interesse an Führichs einmaligen Bildschöpfungen.

      Washington, 1800. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Some wear and minor loss to address leaf. Minor soiling. Very good. In a half red morocco and marbled boards folder, spine gilt. A month before his nomination as Chief Justice, Secretary of State John Marshall writes to Turrell Tufts, the American consul at Surinam, cautioning his diplomatic efforts and commenting on the slave trade in South America. Like Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, Marshall owned slaves. In Marshall's native state of Virginia, slaves had become and integral part of the agricultural-based economy. Marshall, however, detested slavery and publicly declared it an evil, calling for a gradual emancipation. Yet the South, despite growing moral objections, became more and more dependent on slavery, and as this letter illustrates, afforded the opportunity for American slave traders to travel to South America in order to purchase slaves from the large coffee and sugar plantations. He writes: "I have received your letter, dated October last, and several others, evincing your zeal and alertness in the service of your country. I should have before acknowledged your attention, but for the belief, founded on your communications, that you would soon leave the Colony. It is highly to be regretted, that the unsettled state of affairs at Surinam, and the disingenuous conduct of some of the persons in authority, should have given you so many occasions of complaint and disgust. In such a situation, whilst with a becoming spirit of firmness and perseverance, you endeavour to repel the wrongs of your Countrymen, you will never lose sight of that respectful manner in your addresses to the Officers of the Government, where you reside from the force of your representations. I do not mean this hint as an admonition, but only as a caution, suggested by the state of the correspondence between you and them. Every thing beyond temperate remonstrance must be left for arrangement between the two governments. "Any instructions applicable to the state of things at Surinam more than the above intimation and your standing instructions are rendered unnecessary, by the manner in which you have executed your office. I will only for the present ask your vigilant attention to detect any of our Citizens engaging directly or indirectly in the slave trade. In every such case, you will make it a duty to transmit to this Department an exact account of every fact in relation to that subject, which may come to your knowledge, to the end that the laws may be enforced against offenders." Turrell Tufts was appointed by President John Adams to the Consulate at Surinam in 1799, and it would seem that it may have been a difficult fit for Tufts, a Medford, Massachusetts native. It is a post that he nevertheless held until 1820, when he returned to his native home to live his life out in gentlemanly fashion. John Marshall served as Secretary of State for a mere eight months before being appointed to the Supreme Court, also by President John Adams. An interesting and insightful letter, highlighting the difficulties in dealing with eager junior officers in the diplomatic corps and Marshall's own desire to keep the slave trade from America's shore.

      [N.p., but almost certainly Mauritius, 1800. Light soiling. A few contemporary ink notations on verso. Very good. Engraved portrait of Governor Anne Joseph Hippolyte de Maurès, Comte de Malartic, governor of the island of Mauritius. The portrait is a line-drawing, done in profile and framed in an oval. Flags flank either side of the oval frame and it is captioned beneath. There is some light wear to the tiny imprint information, causing it to be slightly obscured, but it is possible that the illustrator's name is "Girouai" and the engraver may be "Noiret." The engraving is a bit crude and printed on laid paper. It is likely that it was done shortly after Malartic's death in 1800. A most unusual and exotic image, a tribute to the rich culture of printing that flourished on the remote island in the south Indian Ocean.

      Paris, 1800. Contemporary half gilt calf and boards. Slight wear to spine of atlas and outer edge of front board, else a fine set. The first edition of this narrative by the naturalist on the d'Entrecasteaux expedition in search of the great French navigator, La Pérouse, whose party disappeared without a trace in 1788. D'Entrecasteaux's party searched Australian waters and north to New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Tonga, and New Caledonia. Labillardière's account is particularly interesting for its descriptions and illustrations of Tasmania and the islands mentioned above. The atlas contains important views of these areas by the artist, Piron, as well as fourteen botanical plates engraved by Redouté. The expedition twice circumnavigated Australia, as well as its island stops. It was beset by difficulty throughout. D'Entrecasteaux died in Batavia, and news of the French Revolution fragmented the crew and ended the expedition. The papers of the expedition fell into British hands, but were returned under a flag of truce in 1796, and Labillardière was the first to publish his account. "The expedition made several important contributions to geographical knowledge, and the investigations of the naturalists...were of special value" - Ferguson.

        7 Exemplare der Schneckengattungen Trochus und Turbo.

      - Aquarell und Feder in Schwarz, über Bleistift, auf Bütten, rechts unten bezeichnet „N 2. 7bre 1800.". 14,2:23 cm. Obwohl er ein Sohn des Landschaftsmalers und Kupferstechers J.U. Schellenberg (1709-1795) war, erhielt der Schweizer Maler, Dichter und Kunstschriftsteller Schellenberg ersten Zeichenunterricht bei seinem Großvater, dem Maler J.R. Huber (1797-1862). Nach dessen Tod zog die Familie nach Winterthur. Eine schwere Kopfverletzung in der Kindheit durch einen Sturz von der Schaukel und eine daraus resultierende permanente Gedächtnisschwäche verhinderte zeitlebens eine ausgedehnte Reisetätigkeit. Auf Anregung des Naturforschers J. Gessner war Schellenberg besonders auf dem Gebiet der Entomologie und Botanik als Zeichner, aber auch als Wissenschaftler tätig. Gessners begonnene Sammlung der Insektenaquarelle setzte er nach dessen Tod fort. Schellenberg fertigte naturwissenschaftliche Illustrationen für mehrere botanische und entomologische Werke an, darunter für das eigene Werk „Genres des mouches Diptères représentés en XLII planches projettées et dessinées et expliquées par deux amateurs de l'entomologie", erschienen 1803. Daneben illustrierte er Romane, Erzählungen, Reisewerke etc. Auch war er an den Abbildungen für Lavaters Physiognomik beteiligt. Durch die vielseitige illustrative Tätigkeit wurde er mit D. Chodowiecki (1726-1801) bekannt, mit dem ihn eine lebenslange Freundschaft verband.

        Aria Scotese con Variazzione [!Variazioni] for violoncello and harpsichord. Musical manuscript score

      Oblong folio (320 x 250 mm.). Plain gray contemporary wrappers with 2- measure incipit in score in black ink and title "Lovely Nancy Scotch Air" to upper. Notated in black ink on 12-stave paper ruled with a 3-stave rastrum. 7, [i] (blank) pp. Watermark fleur-de-lys. Three-stave systems: "Violoncello" and "Clavecin." Ascription to "J. P. Bach" to upper right corner of p. 1. The work, in F major, consists of the theme (the Scotch folksong "Lovely Nancy") and 10 variations. With numerous annotations in pencil, primarily concerning the addition of a horn: "Corno" added below "Violoncello" at the outset; "Senza C[orno]:" before variation 1; "S:C:" before variation 4; "Corno" before variation 10; "P: J: Solo" [apparently not referrring to the horn] before variation 9; "Corno 2do Tempo" before variation 10. With some additions in the same hand. Wrappers slightly stained. Somewhat soiled; lower outer corner creased. . An unrecorded arrangement. The music is written in the Classical style and probably dates from ca. 1800. The brillant writing for both violoncello and harpsichord unfavorably contrasts with the simple tonic-dominant harmonies; there are also errors in voice leading. The ascription is enigmatic. The only member of the Bach family with the initials "J.P." was Johann Philipp Bach, a godson of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. He served as court organist in Meiningen from 1790 and was also a known painter. He visited London to study in the years 1794-96; it would seem plausible that the present variations date from this time. The tune "Lovely Nancy" was published in 1760 in a collection entitled "The Caledonian Pockeet Companion," Vol. 2, pp. 2-3, edited by James Oswald. No compositions by Johann Philipp Bach are known.

Van der Veer's excellent account of the earliest Dutch exploration voyages in search of a Northeast Passage. Although the purpose of the voyages was not successful, the ships stranding in the ice at Nova Zembla, the voyages brought a wealth of new information to the world, and the account became rightfully world famous. Besides, the feat of spending eight months on the exceedingly cold and bare ice at Nova Zembla, fighting ferocious bears and facing other perils, naturally touched the imagination of all, and still does today. Some minor spotting at places. Very good copy.

        [Collection of 14 signed, mostly autograph letters].Toulon, 1842-1849. 8vo and 4to. Letters in black and brown ink on paper (11 with the "prefecture maritime" letterhead), 1 with its original envelope and 3 originally folded, addressed and sealed for posting without an envelope.

      For Charles Baudin: Howgego, 1800-1850, B16 (see also B17). Collection of 14 signed letters, all but 3 autographs, written by Charles Baudin (1792-1854) and dated 1842-1849, when he served as Maritime Prefect at Toulon. He was one of the leading naval figures of the 19th century, whose naval service, mostly as Vice Admiral, began under Napoleon Bonaparte and ended in the early days of the Second Empire. Charles Baudin lost his right arm in battle in 1808 and had to write with his left hand, leading to the distinctive back-sloped handwriting evident in his signature and the 10 autograph letters. All letters are in good or very good condition. Letters 4, 7 and 14 are very slightly browned and 14 also shows some small stains. Letter 2 has a corner torn off and a small hole (neither affecting the text). A valuable primary source for French naval affairs in the last decade of Louis Philippe I's reign.

Large-paper copy of the first edition of one of the most richly illustrated accounts of a voyage to Russia, Persia and adjacent countries and territories by the Dutch artist and traveller Cornelis de Bruijn (1652-1726/7). De Bruijn sailed for Archangel in 1701, proceeding to Moscow, where he stayed for over a year. In 1703 he left Moscow, traveling by way of Asia Minor (Turkey) to Persia, where he remained until 1705. After nearly a year in Isfahan, he headed for Persepolis, the ancient Achaemenid palace complex, the ruins of which had his special interest. He spent three months there, carefully drawing the ruins of the palace, the remaining reliefs and cuneiform inscriptions. His drawings of these ruins are the first reliable pictures of this palace to be accessible for Western scholars. Leaving Persia in 1705 he proceeded to India, Ceylon and the East Indies. He returned by much the same route, residing in Persia between 1706 and 1707, visiting, amongst other things, the ruins of Pasaragdes. The plates include large folding views of Moscow and Isfahan (194 x 40.5 cm!), portraits of Samoyeds, as well as many illustrations of local flora and fauna.Browned, some spotting, one plate with some paper torn off (ca. 9 x 2 cm), not affecting the image, some trails of wormholes in the last quires.

Contemporary calf. Rebacked, with parts of the original backstrip laid down.

      ESTC R10032; Howgego, to 1800, D30; Tobler, p. 95; cf. Gurney, "Della Valle, Pietro", in: Encyclopaedia Iranica (online ed.); this edition not in Atabey; Blackmer. First edition in English (of the third part) of Pietro della Valle's renowned Viaggi, describing his travels in India, Arabia and Syria. Della Valle sojourned six years in Persia, returning overland to Europe in 1623. He travelled from Goa (India) to Muscat and through the Arabian Gulf to Basra and from there to Aleppo. His narrative includes a detailed description of the Arabian Gulf. "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities ..." (Gurney).Della Valle's account is followed by Thomas Roe's journal. Sir Thomas Roe (ca. 1581-1644) was the first fully accredited English ambassador to the court of the Great Mughal, Jahangir. Roe stayed at the court for nearly three years from 1615 until 1618. He detailedly described daily life at court, which makes his account a major source for the study of Mughal court life, providing interesting details of the character of Mughal Emperor Jahangir. Roe frequently refers to Arabia and includes an account of Islam. The doub-page map shows the Mughal Empire.With contemporary manuscript index on last blank. Bookplate on pastedown. Blanks and pastedowns dirty, some smudges and stains, otherwise in good condition.

The three accounts were all originally published separately in German, before being published here in Dutch a few years later. Another issue was published in 1705 as a "second enlarged and revised edition", but it's actually a reissue of the first edition with new preliminaries and title-page. De Vries's translation of both Frick's and Schweitzer's accounts were in turn translated into English in 1700.The first account is by Christoph Frick (1659-after 1717) and was originally published in in 1692 as Ost-Indianische Räysen und Krieges-Dienste. He served the VOC as a surgeon from 1680 until 1685. Of primary interest is his account of the war with Bantam in 1682.The second account is by Elias Hesse (1659- after 1689) and was first published in 1687 as Ost-Indische Reise-Beschreibung. "In addition to descriptions of Sumatra and the mines, Hesse describes Java, Batavia, and the Malabar coast of India. Some of his descriptions were borrowed from other works - especially the material on India - but much of it was, if not new, at least based on his own observations" (Lach & Van Kley).The third account is by Christoph Schweitzer and was first published in 1688 as Journal- und Tagebuch. After a brief stay on Java, he was assigned to Ceylon, where he spent the remainder of his five-year enlistment. "Much can be learned from Schweitzer's journal about the daily life of VOC soldiers and the society they created in the Dutch outposts" (Lach & Van Kley).Some occasional faint foxing. Binding skilfully rebacked. Very good copy.

        John Adams grants a large tract of land in Ohio for Revolutionary War service . The document also mentions "...the society of the United Brethren for propagating the gospel among the Heathen"

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, April 22, 1800. 13.25" x 10.5". "Party-printed Document Signed, ""John Adams,"" as President, 1 page, 13.25"" x 10.5"" on parchment, Philadelphia, April 22, 1800, a grant of 4353 acres of land onto James Morrison. Countersigned, ""Timothy Pickering,"" as Secretary of State. Docketed on verso. Light toning along expected folds, light soiling, else fine condition with a fine embossed presidential seal at bottom left.In June 1796, Congress set aside a large tract of land in what is not East-central Ohio in order to fulfill grants of land promised to veterans of the Revolutionary War. The tract, containing over four thousand acres was located in ""the third quarter of the Ninth Township, in the second Range..."" which is located north of present-day New Philadelphia, in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. In light of the original land bounties offered to soldiers and officers (ensigns were normally entitled to only 150 acres), it would appear that Morrison, like many officers, amassed land warrants of their soldiers?"who often sold their land warrants to others rather than undertake the expense and hardship of a westward migration into the wilderness. Wealthier officers amassed claims to thousands of acres of western lands in this manner. The recipient, James Morrison (1755-1823) was born in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania and served with the 8th Pennsylvania Regiment as an Ensign (Beers, History of Tuscarwas County, 1884, 323-24; Heitman, Historical Register of Officers of the Continental Army). According to a published eulogy, Morrison also served at the battles at Saratoga and for some time as a spy. (Horace, A Discourse Occasioned by the Death of Col. James Morrison... 1823, 9). At the close of the war, Morrison settled in Pittsburgh and became the first sheriff of Alleghany County. In 1792 he moved to Lexington, Kentucky where he established himself as a merchant. Morrison became a state legislator in 1797 and was soon after appointed by John Adams as Supervisor of Revenue for the District of Kentucky. During the War of 1812, he acted as a supply contractor for Harrison's forces and also served as colonel in the Quarter Master's Department. He was a close friend of Henry Clay who interested Morrison in the financial support of Transylvania University (ibid, 10-13).The lands were granted "" pursuance of the act of Congress passed on the first day of June 1796, entitled 'An Act regulating the grants of Land appropriated for Military services, and for the society of the United Brethren for propagating the gospel among the Heathen;' and of the several acts supplementary thereto passed on the second day of March 1799, and on the eleventh day of February and first of March 1800..."" The text of these documents has sometimes been misconstrued as evidence of a form of government support of religion. However the mention of ""the society of the United Brethren for propagating the gospel among the Heathen,"" was a legal name of the Christian sect popularly known as the Moravians, who's missionaries had converted a number of Delaware Indians who had settled on the banks of the Muskingum. The enabling legislation was designed to protect the land holdings of these Indians by placing the title of the lands in the names of the United Brethren. "

        Dresdner Schule um 1800, Bukolische Landschaft, Tusche auf Papier

      - Dresdner Schule um 1800, Bukolische Landschaft, Tusche auf Papier -- Technik: -- Tusche in Grau über Bleistift auf Papier, -- Maße: -- 26,0 x 35,1 cm -- Zustand: -- >Insgesamt gut, leicht unregelmäßig beschnitten. Minimal fleckig, kleiner, retuschierter Fleck am oberen linken Rand. -- Beschreibung: -- Im Laufe des 17. Jahrhunderts entwickelte sich in der Malerei ein Typus der idealen Landschaft, der zwar auf Naturbeobachtung gründete, die Natur aber in ihrer Zufälligkeit für nicht schön genug erklärte. Und so begannen die Künstler, eine idealschöne Natur-kulisse mit den dazugehörigen Gestaltungselementen zu schaffen. Diese Anschauung begann sich zwar im Laufe des 18. Jahrhunderts zugunsten der topographisch genauen Darstellungen zu wandeln, aber erst das 19. Jahr-hundert entdeckte in der realen Gegebenheit eine vollkommene Schönheit. Im Zuge der Italiensehnsucht jener Zeit entstanden Porträts wirklicher Orte, die die Authentizität eines Landschaftseindruckes vermitteln sollten. Der Schöpfer unseres Blattes, ein Vertreter der Dresdner Schule, scheint diese Auffassung zu teilen. Seine kulissenartig aufgebaute Komposition greift noch zu den klassischen Gestaltungselementen: Dunkel aufgefasste Bäume links und rechts, sowie das schräg verlaufende Flussufer am unteren Rand des Bildes machen einen Blick in die Weite frei. Eine junge Hirtin, die gerade ihre Schafe und Ziegen aus der Scheune führt, und der am Ufer sitzende Angler weisen noch Staffagecharakter auf. Insgesamt ist dem Künstler aber die Wiedergabe der Stimmung viel wichtiger als die Konstruktion des Idealen. Indem er der Landschaft eine kontrastreiche Tonalität verleiht, die sie sonnendurchflutet und heiter erscheinen lässt, bringt er seine Naturempfindung zum Ausdruck. --

Folio (34 x 21 cm). A wholly lithographed book in nashk Arabic script, with 3 title-pages, 56 lithographed anatomical illustration plates, a page of floral and arabesque decoration serving as a divisional "title", and the 1st and 2nd title-pages each followed by 2 text pages with elaborate floral and arabesque borders, the first page headed by the crowned Iranian emblem. Contemporary blind-tooled light brown goatskin.

      For lithography in Iran: Encyclopaedia Iranica; for the author: Hormoz Ebrahimnejad, Medicine, Public Health, and the Qâjâr State, p. 51, and ibid., Medicine in Iran ... 1800-1925, (2014), note 131 on p. 190. Very rare first (and only?) edition of an extensive Persian-language medical handbook by Mirza Mohammad-Vali, chief physician of the army under the fourth Qajar Shah, Nasar al-Din (reigned 1848-1896). It is a pioneering work of Iranian printing, which introduced European anatomical illustration to Persian physicians and helped to promote the study of European medicine, primarily in the army. While the book provides a broad introduction to medicine in general, its most remarkable feature is the collection of anatomical illustrations: 56 lithographed plates showing human skeletons and bones; muscles, tendons and ligaments; internal organs (male and female); and the respiratory, nervous and circulatory systems. They are based on European models such as Vesalius, Scarpa and Fabrici.Bound differently than the pagination suggests, with the first two series of page numbers combined to form a single subdivision. Slightly browned and with a small restoration in the decoration of the main title-page but still in good condition. A half dozen pages are slightly dirty and there is an occasional minor marginal defect. The binding is slightly worn and much of the decoration of the inlaid parchment is lost, but the binding remains structurally sound. A rare and remarkable Iranian lithographic medical work, with 56 anatomical plates.

      Ferguson 978 and 979; Davidson, pp. 108-110; Howgego, 1800 to 1850, B18, F32, and P21; Wantrup 82. Second and improved edition of the famous account of the French Baudin expedition to Australia in the years 1800-1804. The objective of the expedition, commanded by Captain Baudin, was to thoroughly examine the Australian south coast in order to find the strait that supposedly divided New Holland into two almost equal islands. Baudin, a sick man, was in no condition to command such a strenuous and ambitious voyage, and Péron, the naturalist of the expedition, bitterly criticized his conduct. Baudin surveyed the coast westward from Wilson's Promontory, met Mathew Flinders in Encounter Bay and sailed for Sydney where he stayed for six months. Here Baudin sent the ship Le Naturaliste to Europe, purchased the Casuarina and put Freycinet, the expedition's cartographer, in command of her. The expedition proceeded along the west coast, and sailed to Mauritius by way of Timor. Baudin died in Mauritius in 1803, and Freycinet left the Casuarina on the island and returned to France.The present narrative, begun by Péron and finished by Freycinet, contains a valuable account of life in Sydney, as well as important descriptions of the natural history of the Australia's west coast, which destroyed the myth that this part of Australia was completely arid and desolate. The atlas includes two fine views of Sydney, a beautiful depiction of the platypus, fine portraits, as well as several excellent charts drawn by Freycinet. "The journals of the voyage are among the finest items of Australiana ever published" (Davidson). A very good set.

Edman, 1795. 3 works in 1 volume. 8vo. Contemporary gold-tooled tanned half sheepskin.

      Ad 1: Howgego, to 1800, S194; cf. Cox II, p. 309 (both Crozet ed. 1783); Hill, p. 72; ad 3: Howgego, to 1800, A12; cf. Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 2883. Interesting sammelband of three travel accounts in Swedish. Ad 1: The first work, the voyage of Jean François de Surville (1717-1770) to the South Pacific (1769) is especially interesting. Crozet published a selection from his account soon after the voyage, in 1783. Our Swedish edition is translated from Georg Forster's "Des Französischen Schiffkapitans J.F. de Surville's Reise in das Sudmeer", in Magazin von Merkwürdigen Neuen Reisebeschreibungen, 17 (1793). In 1769-1770 De Surville undertook his famous Pacific expedition with the ship the Jean-Baptiste, with the intention to locate the fabled "Davis Island" or an alternative southern continent, for trade purposes. Ad 2: The second part of the convolute comprises an extract of a voyage to Italy in the years 1785 to 1786, by Frederik Christian Carl Henrik Munter, professor of theology in Kopenhagen. The work was first published in Danish under the title Efterretninger om begge Sicilierne, samlede paa en reise i disse lande i aarene 1785 och 1786 (Copenhagen, 1788-1790) and a German translation appeared in 1790.Ad 3: The third work, on Adanson's voyage to Senegal, is also of interest, for it was the first scientific voyage undertaken to that country. The French botanist Michel Adanson (1727-1806) studied the habits and customs of the natives in Senegal for four years, from 1749 to 1753, giving special attention to its natural history. The account of his voyage and explorations was published for the first time in 1757 as the first part of his famous Histoire Naturelle du Sénégal. The present, very rare edition is a Swedish translation of the original French text, by an unidentified translator. Apart from his scientific work, Michel Adanson is also considered a pioneer anti-slavery campaigner for the regions of French interest in West Africa.Good copies of 3 rare popular editions.
