        Cydonia communis. Coignassier commun.

      Paris. Ca. 1801- 1819. - Stipple engraving printed in color with added hand color, plate 12 x 9 inches on sheet 16 x 10 inches. Single pinhole in each corner (well outside plate area), a couple of very light foxing spots, scarcely visible. Very good condition. An exquisite botanical print of a quince, highlighting the artistry of Pierre Joseph Redoute in combination with the subtle technique of stipple engraving. The celebrated botanical artist Redoute (1759-1840) had the distinction of receiving the patronage of Marie Antoinette before the French Revolution as well as that of the Empress Josephine following the Reign of Terror. This fine example of botanical art was published in "Traite des Arbres et Arbustes que l'on cultive en france en pleine terre. Seconde edition 'nouveau Duhamel' considerablement augmentee" (Dunthorne 243) which documented trees and shrubs cultivated in France. This is plate 36 from Volume 4.

        TRIESTE, ITALY: VEDUTA MERIDIONALE DELLA CITTÁ E PORTOFRANCO DI TRIESTE DEDICATA ALLO SPATTABILE CETO MERCANTILE IN TRIESTE.

      Trieste: Gasparo Weiss - Thomas Baratti . 1801 - Copper engraving on blue paper (Very Good, with minor foxing and very light water staining) cm. This large beautiful and detailed view of Trieste was made in 1801 from the hills on the north side. The clearly presented buildings are marked with 38 numbers and named in the lover part of the print. The landscape in the background expands into the coastline of what is today Slovenia with Piran on the extreme right-hand side. The images in the front present scenes from modern life: strollers, children, dogs, fishermen catching fish in groups, a man observing the sea with a telescope and an artist drawing an image of the city. The latter image is probably an self-portrait of the artist himself. The print was dedicated to the Guild of Merchants of Trieste, a very strong society from 18th century on, which was electing members to the Trieste Chambers of Commerce. The print is based on the drawing of an artist who signed himself as Giuseppe Pollencig. Born in Gorizia on March 24, 1763 as Joseph Thomas Polenzig (Polen?i?), he is recorded in Vienna in 1791, from 1791 to 1797 in Budapest, and from 1797 to 1809 in Trieste, where his name got italianised to Giuseppe Pollencig. In 1809 he returned to Gorizia, where he staied until his death. According to the contemporary article, the print was made by Thomas Baratti, who came to Trieste from Venice (Erneuerte vaterländische Blätter für den österreichischen Kaiserstaat, nr. 28, 27. April 1819, p. 112). Although the view is known in literature and facsimile editions appear on the market, we could not trace any other originals on the market in the past generations.

        New York

      March 3, 1801. <div><br></div>Broadside: To the Electors of the State of New York, one page, 9" x 16", March 3, 1801, Albany, addressed to <i>"Fellow Citizens!"</i>. The period for which our present Chief Magistrate was elected to office being nearly expired and he having signified his intention to retire to private life, it will soon become necessary for the citizens of this state... to provide a successor to that important station... we the General Committee of the citizens of Albany... respectfully recommend... and support Stephen Van Rensselaer... " With a lengthy endorsement of Van Rensselaer's reputation and character. Stephen Van Rensselaer III (1764-1839) was Lieutenant Governor of New York as well as a statesman, soldier, and land-owner, the heir to one of the greatest estates in the New York region at the time. He was the father of Henry Bell Van Rensselaer, who was a politician and general in the Union Army during the American Civil War. His younger brother Philip Schuyler Van Rensselaer 1767-1824 was Mayor of Albany, New York 1799-1812. Van Rensselaer was born in New York City, the eldest child of Stephen Van Rensselaer II (a great-grandson of Mayor of New York Stephanus Van Cortlandt) and Catharina Livingston (daughter of Philip Livingston). His family was very wealthy, and the van Rensselaer Manor House was a rich childhood environment for the young boy to grow up in. However, his father died in 1769, when van Rensselaer was only five, and the heir to his father's estate. Van Rensselaer was raised by his uncle, Abraham Ten Broeck, who administered the Van Rensselaer estate after van Rensselaer II's untimely death. To this end he was sent off to school, and in 1782, van Rensselaer graduated from Harvard University. One year later, he married Margarita Schuyler, the daughter of renowned Revolutionary War general Philip Schuyler. Van Rensselaer was only nineteen years old, but Margarita's death in 1801 would cause him to enter into his second marriage one year later with Cornelia Paterson, daughter of former New Jersey Governor William Paterson. On his 21st birthday, van Rensselaer took possession of his family's prestigious estate, close to 1,200 square miles (31,000 km²) in size, named Rensselaerswyck, and began a long tenure as lord of his family's manor. Van Rensselaer desired to make money off of the land that was suddenly his, but was extremely reluctant to sell it off. Instead, he granted tenants perpetual leases at moderate rates, which saved would-be landholders from having to pay all of their money up front. This meant that they could invest more in their operations, which led to increased productivity in the area. Over time, van Rensselaer would become landlord over 3,000 tenants, and proved a lenient and benevolent landowner. His tenants, who did not have to work in fear of sudden foreclosure or unfair treatment, were able to focus on their work, and the productivity Van Rensselaer created benefited the entire Albany area. Van Rensselaer also spent a great deal of time in political pursuits, it is said more out of a sense of duty than of ambition. He served in the New York State Assembly from 1789 to 1791 and the New York State Senate from 1791 to 1796, being named Lieutenant Governor of the state in 1795. van Rensselaer, over his time in politics, acquired a reputation as something of a reformer, voting in favour of extending the suffrage and going against much of New York's upper class in doing so. Very fine.

Notably, in 1804 he served on the committee overseeing the funeral arrangements for Alexander Hamilton and for the hiring of Col. John Trumbull to paint a full-length portrait of Hamilton as a general for the sum of five-hundred dollars. Richard Harrison was one of the first three lawyers (and the only lawyer from New York) admitted to practice before the Supreme Court the first day it opened in New York in February 1790.

        John Langdon

      June 13, 1801. Partially Printed Military Document Endorsed, <i><b>"John Langdon, Cap[tain] Genl"</b></i>, and Signed, <i><b>"J.T. Gilman"</b></i>, Governor, 1p, 14.25" x 12". Document is an appointment of Jabez James to the position of "Major of the First Battalion on the Tenth Regiment of Militia, in the State of New-Hampshire." Along the left side beneath the seal, in clerical hand is written, <i>"The said Jabez James his requested leave to resign this commission and having received the Consent of the Superior Officer his resignation is accepted"</i> with John Langdon's endorsement. Light soiling and toned edges with folds; Overall near fine condition.&nbsp;<div><br></div><div>John Langdon's distinguished political leadership was matched by his military acumen. He made an important contribution to the war effort during his year in the Continental Congress. In November 1775, he approved the organization of the first regiment of Canadian volunteers in the Continental Army. Recognizing Langdon's maritime experiences, Congress appointed him to the committee that oversaw the establishment of the Continental Navy. In early 1776 Langdon resigned to accept appointment as the Marine Agent for New Hampshire. He established a shipyard in Portsmouth and began work on one of the first Continental frigates, the Raleigh. While he operated his own fleet of privateers, he also supervised construction of the Navy's first major warship, the 74-gun America. The most ambitious shipbuilding project in the country to that time, the America was launched near the end of the war.</div><div><br></div><div>Another of Langdon's major responsibilities as marine agent involved supervising the importation and distribution of arms. Shipped from France to ports in New England, and especially Portsmouth, these vital weapons were disguised in a complicated trade deal to maintain the appearance of French neutrality. Thanks in part to Langdon's efforts they reached the regiments of the Continental Army in time for the crucial campaigns of 1777. In 1777 Langdon assumed a more direct role in the defense of the country. Langdon took command of an elite company of light infantry called a "silk-stocking" outfit by his contemporaries because it was composed of wealthy citizens who all held officer commissions in their own local militia units. The unit was in fact a highly trained combat formation. British strategy for the summer campaign of 1777 called for a major attack to cut New England off from the other states. By September, Burgoyne's army had been halted near Saratoga, New York, by the combined efforts of continentals and various militias from New York and New England. To help break the stalemate, additional militia units were called up, including Langdon's company. They arrived in time to surround the British, cutting off retreat to Canada. In October, Burgoyne and his entire army surrendered. Langdon witnessed this "grand scene' " as he called it, the result of the cooperative efforts of the regulars and the militia of four separate states. He also took considerable satisfaction in the fact that he had paid out of his own pocket for much of the equipment used by his militia company, saying, "If we defend our homes and our firesides, I may get my pay; if we do not defend them, the property will be of no value to me."&nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div>Jabez James was an early settler of New Hampshire. As quoted from the History of Merrimack and Belknap Counties, New Hampshire Philadelphia: J.W. Lewis &amp; Co., 1885, "Major Jabez James came into town in 1784 and settled near Cotton's Hill, on the north incline, on some excellent land. He was one of the largest taxpayers in the first years. His estate still remains in the name and the family holds its rank. He was a Revolutionary soldier and had sons, John and Jonathan who settled near. Jonathan and John James settled near each other in the same neighborhood and their families are still represented in the place, though some have removed to other places. The families were not large, but of good standing and worthy in example."</div>

        A superb and rare volume from the early U.S. Congress, including the act authorizing the Washington Monument, The Bankruptcy Act, and an act granting the Franking privilege to Martha Washington.

      1801. [United States Congress], Acts Passed at the First Session of the Sixth Congress of the United States of America, Begun and Held at the City of Philadelphia, In the State of Pennsylvania, On Monday the second of December, in the Year M,DCC, XCIX. (Philadelphia: Printed by Richard Folwell. [1801]) 223, vii, 352, iv, [22], octavo (5 x 8 inches), contemporary calf boards, titled spine with gilt lettering. With additional title page glued in font, The Laws of the United States of America. Vol. V. Published by Authority (Washington: Printed by Samuel Harrison Smith, for Rapin, Conrad and Co... Philadelphia -- and M. and J. Conrad and Co., Baltimore, 1801). <br /><br />The Death of Washington. Of great interest in this volume are the acts relative to the death of George Washington, and in particular, the original legislation that eventually resulted in the erection of the Washington Monument, finally completed in 1885. On December 23, 1799, nine days following his demise, the House and Senate resolved "...That a Marble Monument be erected by the United States, in the Capitol, at the City of Washington; and that the family of General Washington be requested to permit his body to be deposited under it; and that the Monument be so designed as to commemorate the great events of his military and political life. And be it further resolved, That there be a funeral procession from Congress Hall to the German Lutheran Church, in honor of the memory of General George Washington, on Thursday, the twenty-sixth instant, and that an oration be prepared at the request of Congress, to be delivered before both Houses, on that day; and that the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives, be desired to request one of the Members of Congress to prepare and deliver the same. And be it further resolved, That it be recommended to the People of the United States to wear crape on the left arm, as mourning, for thirty days. And be it further resolved, That the President of the United States be requested to direct a copy of these resolutions to be transmitted to Mrs. Washington, assuring her of the profound respect Congress will ever bear to her person and character; of their condolence on the late afflicting dispensation of Providence; and entreating her assent to the interment of the remains of General George Washington, in the manner expressed in the first resolution. And be it further resolved, That the President of the United States be requested to issue a proclamation, notifying to the People throughout the United States the recommendation contained in the third resolution." The following day, Christmas eve, it was further "RESOLVED by the Senate and house of Representatives of the United States, in the Capitol, at the city of Washington, and that the family of general Washington be so designed as to commemorate the great events of his military and political life... And be it further resolved, That it be recommended to the people of the United States to wear crape on the left arm as mourning, for thirty days..." Two weeks later Congress further recommended to the people of the United States to assemble on the twenty-second day of February next, in such numbers and manner as may be convenient., publicity to testify their grief for the death of George Washington, by suitable eulogies, rotations and discourses, or by pubic prayers..." In an additional gesture of thanks, on April 3, 1800 Congress passed "An ACT to extend the privilege of franking letters and packages to Martha Washington". <br /><br />Quasi War with France: Apart from the important Washington connections, this imprint provides a fabulous record of one of the more pivotal congresses in United States history. Convened in the midst of some of the most bitter political acrimony to grip the country that pitted not only the Federalists against the Jeffersonian Republicans, but divided President John Adams against his own party. Relations with France had soured to the point that an undeclared naval war had erupted between the former revolutionary allies while Alexander Hamilton and his allies pushed for a larger land army to repel a possible invasion. In the end, the "quasi-war" remained exclusively naval, and American sea power was quite successful on the high seas. On March 29, 1800 Congress "RESOLVED... That the President of the United States be requested to present to captain Thomas Truxton, a golden Medal, emblematical of the late action between the United States frigate Constellation, of thirty-eight guns, and the French ship of war La Vengeance, of fifty-four..." Other legislation includes "An ACT further to suspend the commercial intercourse between the United States and France, and the dependencies thereof." passed on February 27, 1800. A maturing nation: Also of interest here is some of the earliest national bankruptcy legislation including "An ACT to establish an uniform System of Bankruptcy throughout the United States." (April 4, 1800) together with "An ACT for the relief of persons imprisoned for debt" (January 6, 1800). It was legislation like this, both on the federal and state level that allowed Robert Morris to finally leave the Prune Street debtor's prison the following year. Other significant legislation includes "An ACT providing for the second census..." (February 28, 1800); " The somewhat ironic, "...ACT to establish a general Stamp Office." (April 23, 1800); and "An ACT to alter and to establish sundry post roads." (April 23, 1800). <br /><br />Also of interest is one of the later acts to be passed in this volatile session of Congress, "An ACT to make further provision for the removal and accommodation of the Government of the United States." (April 21, 1800) It provided that "...the President of the United States, shall be... empowered, to direct the various offices belonging to the several executive departments of the United States, to be removed to the city of Washington, at any time he shall judge proper, after the adjournment of the present session of Congress..." Also included are several international treaties including the 1797: "TREATY of PEACE and FRIENDSHIP, between the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and the KINGDOM OF TUNIS". Tunis, of course, was one of the North African Barbary States, and this treaty required yearly tribute to the Bey. The United States would son go to war with Tripoli over the matter, and by 1815, the United States no longer paid tribute to any of the North African kingdoms. Also included is a "TREATY of Amity and Commerce between HIS MAJESTY THE KING OF PRUSSIA and the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." (Printed in English and French on opposite pages). Shaw & Shoemaker 1456. No copies have appeared at auction since 1975. Pages bear light foxing, one or two bear minor marginal tears, small loss to front blank flyleaf, rubbing and scratches to boards and spine, spine overall tight, a very good edition.

Boards lightly scuffed and soiled. Scattered foxing and toning,Lacking the half-title & pages 249-256 misbound, after page 152. Very good. viii, cxxxii, 412, [2]pp. London, Alexander Mackenzie was ?the first white man to cross the continent and his journal.is of surpassing interest? (Wagner-Camp). The present work is the first published account of the two exploring expeditions that Mackenzie made on behalf of the North West Company as part of their attempt to break the Hudson's Bay Company's stranglehold on the fur trade. The author was born in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland in 1764, in North America in 1774, employed as a clerk in the fur trade in 1779, and by 1787 he was a wintering partner in the North West Company, posted at Fort Chipewyan on Lake Athabasca.Mackenzie set out on his first expedition on June 3, 1789, armed with information and maps provided by fur trader Peter Pond. He had decided to follow a large river flowing west from Great Slave Lake in search of a northwest passage to the Pacific. The expedition was partially successful: on July 13, Mackenzie and his party reached salt water, but it proved to be the Beaufort Sea rather than the Pacific Ocean.After a further two years in the fur trade in Canada, Mackenzie returned to England in the autumn of 1791 to study navigation and astronomy, as the first expedition had demonstrated to him that he needed more expertise in these areas. He returned to Canada in the spring of 1792 and made his way west to the newly-built Fort Fork, near the junction of the Peace and Smoky Rivers.In May 1793, having spent the winter making preparations, Mackenzie left on what was to be his greatest journey. After a difficult passage by canoe and on foot through the Rockies, he and his party arrived at the Pacific near Bella Coola, British Columbia on July 22, 1793. He returned to Grand Portage in 1794 and subsequently to Montreal, where he acted as an agent for the North West Company until 1799, when he retired to England. His great achievement did not receive the wide acknowledgment it deserved until the present work was published, and his subsequent and equally important proposals drawing attention to the importance of the Pacific coast. In 1802, Mackenzie was knighted by George III and went on to serve as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada from 1804 to 1808.Graff 2630; Hill, 1063; Howes, M133 ?b?; Lande, 1317; Peel, 25; Sabin, 43414; Wagner-Camp, 1:1; Wheat Transmississippi, 251.

        Mapa Geográfico del Obispado de Mechoacan Hecho por el manuscrito del Br. D. Manuel Ygnacio Carranza, el de D. Josef Antonio de Alzate y Ramirez, y otros documentos Por D. Tomás López, geógrafo de los dominios de S.M. de varias Academias. Madrid año de 1801

      1801 - 49 x 41 cm. Este mapa fue grabado en dos hojas que dividen al obispado de Michoacán en norte y sur. En la esquina superior izquierda se ubica el título (fig. 1). La escala, localizada en la esquina inferior derecha, está expresada en Leguas vulgares de España de hora de camino de 20 al grado, Leguas de 17 ½ al grado y Leguas legales de Castilla. En el ángulo inferior izquierdo, fuera del marco, se ubica la siguiente frase: Se hallará este en Madrid con las obras de sus hijos. Cuenta con márgenes graduados, orografía y red hidrográfica; los límites del obispado están coloreados y la costa que da al Pacífico está sombreada en verde. La leyenda de símbolos indica el tipo de asentamiento: Ciudad arzobispal, ciudad obispal, ciudad particular, villa, pueblo de españoles, pueblo con parroquia y cura, pueblos pequeños y de esto hai (sic.) muchos, haciendas de ganados y labradores, son tantas que por no embarazar se ponen algunas, real de minas de oro y plata, y minas de cobre o estaño. También han sido identificados los territorios circunvecinos como el Obispado de Guadalajara, el Arzobispado de México, el Reyno de León y el Mar Pacífico o del Sur. Se trata de un plano suelto, pues no formó parte de la publicación de ningún libro o atlas. Además de que es bastante raro, como lo son la mayoría de los mapas españoles de este periodo. El autor de este mapa, el geógrafo real Tomás López de Vargas Machuca se basó, entre otros, en el trabajo realizado por el clérigo novohispano Manuel Ignacio Carranza. El obispo Pedro Anselmo Sánchez de Tagle le encomendó llevar a cabo un mapa del obispado de Michoacán, con el propósito de dar cumplimiento a lo dispuesto en la Cédula Real del 9 de abril de 1759 mediante la cual se requería que cada obispado y arzobispado de la Nueva España efectuara un informe acompañado por una carta geográfica en la que se indicaran sus principales poblaciones y sus límites territoriales. Es interesante cómo Sánchez de Tagle, al dar respuesta a dicho mandato, puntualizó la falta de personal especializado que pudiera atender esta demanda y la consecuente necesidad de recurrir a geógrafos improvisados. Carranza resultaba ser el único geógrafo en esas tierras que podía asumir tal labor e hizo constar en el informe que redactó que había obtenido los datos necesarios de otros mapas más antiguos que estaban en poder de las autoridades diocesanas. Por su parte, Sánchez de Tagle detalló los trámites y contratiempos que tuvieron que enfrentar, pues los mapas que dificultosamente encontraron en la diócesis eran inexactos, lo que los obligó a recabar la información faltante en otras fuentes. José Antonio de Alzate, originario del Estado de México, fue un hombre que abrazó la carrera religiosa y mostró un ávido interés por las ciencias naturales, la física, las matemáticas, la astronomía y la geografía. Publicó numerosos trabajos en los diarios y revistas de su época y por sus aportaciones fue designado socio de la Academia de Ciencias de París. De su labor cartográfica destacan sus siguientes trabajos: Nuevo mapa geográfico de la América Septentrional (1767); Atlas eclesiástico del arzobispado de México (1767); un plano de la Ciudad de México (1768); Plano geográfico de la mayor parte de la América Septentrional (1775); y el mapa del Valle de México (1786). Uno de los grandes aportes de este personaje consistió en la publicación en 1772 del primer documento de geografía teórica moderno, titulado Estado de la geografía de la Nueva España y modo de perfeccionarla, el cual fue publicado en el periódico semanario del propio Alzate "Asuntos Varios Sobre Ciencias y Artes No. 7". La elaboración de este escrito respondió a las necesidades políticas que las Reformas Borbónicas buscaban satisfacer para la eficiente administración del reino español, tanto en la península como en las colonias de ultramar. En este sentido Alzate se erigió como un hombre de su tiempo en el campo de la geografía al publicar una reflexión sobre la labor de este cam

Gives details of the equipment necessary for the analysis of minerals, as well as instructions for their use. It also describes various analytical methods, giving a list of reagents. The analysis of individual minerals is then described. Lampadius` methods are generally as good as Klaproth`s, and there are portions of the book that foreshadow textbooks of a later period. For example, it contains a detailed list of equipment and apparatus required for analysis, as well as instructions for their use. In the introduction a long passage describes the preparation of the necessary reagents, and methods for testing their purity. Szabadváry (1966) says these `descriptions are the earliest record of standard methods used for testing the purity of analytical grade reagents and in many cases are very similar to present day methods`" (Minrec). - Unbeschnitten.

        Tales of Wonder.

      London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. for the Author; and sold by J. Bell,, 1801. 2 volumes, tall octavo (250 x 153 mm). Contemporary streaked calf, spines gilt-tooled in compartments, two black morocco title labels to each, elaborately gilt-tooled and rolled borders to sides, gilt "D" crest with winged crown to centre of boards, gilt-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers and edges. Some tenderness to joints with a crack to front joint of vol. 2, a few other marks and scuffs, but internally fresh and generally an excellent copy. First edition, this copy in a handsome contemporary binding and somewhat later gifted by Lord Chandos Leigh (1791-1850, poet and school-friend of Lord Byron) to his nephew Frederick Leigh Colvile (1819-1886, himself an author, antiquary, and Warwickshire vicar). The book has the recipient's bookplate and is inscribed, "from my uncle Chandos Leigh". This is a pleasing early association for this collection of poems by Gothic-horror celebrity Matthew "Monk" Lewis. "Because of the ample large paper format and high publication price [one guinea], this two-volume octavo edition was soon derided as 'Tales of Plunder'" (Todd & Bowden), although ODNB (see below) attributes this appellation to the fact that two-thirds of the ballad material included had been published in previous compilations. "In 1798 Lewis met William Erskine, friend of Walter Scott, who showed him some of the latter's translations and imitations of German ballads. Lewis's admiration for his writing represented an important opportunity for the as yet unknown Scott, whose subsequent poetry was greatly influenced by Lewis. In 1798 Lewis announced to Scott his plan to publish a collection of 'Tales of Terror', adding that 'a Ghost or a Witch is a sine-qua-non ingredient in all the dishes, of which I mean to compose my hobgoblin repast' (Peck, 118). This reveals Lewis's interest in fashionable Gothic horror rather than any scholarly concern for folkloric authenticity, a predilection which is evident in his subsequent publication. The collection appeared in late 1800 or early 1801 as Tales of Wonder, and, in addition to traditional material and nine original poems by Lewis (the best being 'Alonzo the Brave and Fair Imogine'), included five ballads by Scott, eight by Robert Southey, and one by John Leyden. Lewis's original poems display a remarkable variety of metrical feet, stanzaic form, and rhyme scheme, confirming Walter Scott's comment that Lewis 'had the finest ear for the rhythm of verse I have ever heard—finer than Byron's' (ibid., 123). Eight were Lewis's translations from the German, including five from Herder's Volkslieder, the main faults of which are overadornment and sentimentality. Of the sixty pieces included, about two-thirds had been published before in collections by Thomas Percy, David Herd, and other eighteenth-century compilers, a fact which contributed to the book's poor public reception and its popular appellation 'Tales of Plunder'. Of the many parodies elicited by Tales of Wonder, the most celebrated is the anonymous Tales of Terror (1801) on account of the fact that it was sold by Lewis's own publisher Bell, who issued it and the Tales of Wonder in uniform size and advertised the two works as companion volumes. The attribution of Tales of Terror to Lewis by his biographer of 1839 deepened the bibliographical confusion, and the work was thereafter taken to be Lewis's own, an attribution symptomatic of the fine line separating horror and parody in Lewis's opus" (ODNB).

        Addresses to the Deity. The third edition.

      London:: Printed for T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies, by G.R. Clarke, 1801., 1801. Small 8vo. xx, [ii], 232 pp. Original full dark navy blue straight-grained morocco, gilt Greek-key tooling surround, five raised bands, elaborate gilt compartments, all edges gilt. Very good +. With a fine fore-edge painting under the gilt showing "Christchurch in Hampshire (here James Fordyce lived)." With an early typed note relating to the painting. The artist possibly copied the engraving "Christchurch, Hampshire" from the print by E. Finden after a picture by W. Westall, published in Great Britain Illustrated, 1830. This view shows the single row boat in the foreground similar to the image with this fore-edge painting. Artist unknown; painted ca. 1900-1955. This scene is delicately and skillfully painted. "Fordyce's delivery and gestures were studied, and he drew crowds to Monkwell Street. His topics were didactic, but he also satisfied cultured tastes, and dealt with the ethics of actual life. David Garrick was impressed; Fordyce associated with Samuel Johnson, and introduced him to Blair. He gave sympathetic account in Addresses to the Deity, 1785, of Johnson's religious character, speaking as an evangelical moderate." [DNB].

        Tableau historique et statistique de l'empire de Russie à fin du dix-huitième siècle. Edition française.

      Basle, J. Decker, and Paris, C. Pougens, 1801. Two volumes in two. 8vo (19.6 x12.3 cm). 1,004 pp. [xxii, 407, 80; 423, 72], two large, partly coloured folded maps (the largest with printed dimensions 67 x 36.5 cm), three folded tables. Uniform contemporary tree-calf. Spines rich gilt with gilt title on blue morocco label. Marbled endpapers. Edges yellow, speckled with red. = Contains much information on the economy and demography of late 18th century Russia. One map shows Russia west of the Ural, the other the whole country, including Siberia, in 1800. This map is reminiscent of that in the work of Pallas. Copies complete with both maps are very rare. A 'mappe monde', recorded by a French antiquarian most probably does not belong to this work on Russia - there are no text references to such a map. A German edition was published simultanously but is very rare too, being without recent auction records. Provenance: his royal highness Herzog Carl Theodor von Bayern, who, apparently, prefered this edition over the German one. Slight rubbing to the boards, short tear in the inner margin of the folded maps, otherwise a very good clean set. Rare. Not in Brunet.

        MISS SCOTT EVANS...BEGS LEAVE RESPECTFULLY TO INFORM HER FRIENDS AND THE PUBLIC, THAT HER BENEFIT, AT THE NEW ROYAL CIRCUS, ST. GEORGE'S FIELDS, IS FIXED FOR SATURDAY, THE 3D OF OCTOBER, 1801, WHEN THE NEW GRAND SPECTACLE OF KING CÆSAR, OR, THE NEGRO SLAVES...WILL BE PERFORMED

      [London]: Printed at the Philanthropic Reform...by J. Richardson, 1801. Broadside, 13 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches. Contemporary ink correction to one word, old folds, light edge wear, minor creasing and wrinkling. Very good. Untrimmed. This playbill records a performance of KING CÆSAR, OR, THE NEGRO SLAVES... by John Cartwright Cross at the New Royal Circus, London, Oct. 3, 1801. The production was inspired by the activities of the rebel slave leader and Voodoo priest Francois Mackandal in the French colony of Saint-Domingue in the Caribbean. A one-armed escaped slave, Mackandal organized Maroon bands in the 1750s, staging raids on the French until his eventual capture in 1758. First performed on Wednesday, Sep. 16, 1801, the "grand spectacle" was produced at the time of great public interest in the ongoing slave revolt on Saint- Domingue (1791-1804) that led to the founding of Haiti. Not in OCLC.

        Le Perroquet Lori-unicolor [Lory (Lorius sp.)]

      Paris 1801 - Colour-printed stipple engraving. Very good condition. Jacques Barraband was the finest ornithological artist of his time. The son of a weaver at the Aubusson Factory, he is first mentioned as a pupil of Joseph Malaine (1745-1809), the eminent flower painter, and is known to have worked for both the Gobelin Factory and the porcelain factory of Sèvres. His most important work was undoubtedly the 300 or so drawings that he produced for François Levaillant's three great ornithological monographs, the greatest of which was the Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets (1801-1805).
