"La Revolution a frappe son imagination, comme celle des Bonald et des de Maistre, comme celle de Chateaubriand dont il devance le 'Genie du christianisme' avec ce livre [l'expression meme s'y rencontre, p. 182]. Il trouvait, au meme moment que lui, les themes dont va vivre une generation. Seulement, chez le Lyonnais mystique, ils se revetaient d'une autre nuance, plus secrete, plus theosophique : Chateaubriand decouvrait des images, Ballanche des symboles" (P. Moreau, 'Le romantisme', p. 47). (Frainnet, 'Ballanche', p. 345. Monglond, V, 503).

        Document Signed, in French, and initialed 7 times in margins, 4 pp on one 8vo sheet, Charenton St. Maurice, October 14, 1806

      The document is an agreement between the Marquis de Sade and his eldest son, Louis Marie de Sade whereby the Marquis de Sade hands over almost all of his assets to his son, providing an annuity for himself and a bequest to Mme. Quesnet. Sade "wishes to divest himself of all his affairs" to avoid lawsuits to be brought against him by his creditors. He hands over his assets to his son. Enumerated are the specifics about who gets what and a listing of all of his properties. "Judged insane and dangerous because of his novels and plays, he finishes his life in an asylum," notes Neil Schaeffer [Neil Schaeffer: The Marquis de Sade: A Life. The definitive biography]. Having been arrested in 1801 and sent to prison, his family requested, on his behalf, to have him transferred to the insane asylum at Charenton where he went in 1803 for the rest of his life. Schaeffer also notes that Mme. Quesnet moved into the asylum with him in 1804 and that Sade "left a generous bequest to Mme. Quesnet who stayed with him to the end." The asylum director approved, of Quesnet but as a cover, Sade referred to her as his daughter. Sade met Marie-Constance Renelle Quesnet, then age 33, in August of 1790 after being released from Charenton and after having recently separated from his wife who had filed for divorce. Quesnet, a former actress abandoned by her husband and left with a six-year old son, was to become Sade's mistress and long time companion. A timeline of Sade's life (www.users.ecs.soton.ac.uk) notes that their liaison "which Sade will describe many times as 'less than platonic', but founded on mutual love and attachment, will last the rest of his life." In 1800, after struggling to support himself, Quesnet and her son, Sade was threatened with debtor's prison for unpaid bills. He accused his steward, Gaufridy, of criminal activity and Gaudridy resigned. Mme. Quenet began to oversee Sade's finances. In 1803, according to the timeline, the family instigated the transfer of Sade to Charenton where "they paid his board." This timeline notes that on August 24, 1805 "Sade draws up and signs a memorandum outlining the final conditions to which he will agree to his family's proposed purchase of all his property (save Soumane) in return for a life annuity." While this memo is dated October 14, 1806, it suggests that the terms might have gone back and forth several times. The document offered here, dated just 13 days later, suggests that in the end, some terms had finally been agreed to. The document lists all lands owned including "a farm called Lamalmaison...the estate of Grandvilliers... in the Eure and Loir... Mazan...." Besides itemizing all payments needing to be made, the document specifies, more than once, that an annuity would be given to Sade and "finally that said buyer...is obliged... to create for said Mme. Quesnet and her son a one thousand francs life annuity...." Signed as, "Sade" father and below his son has signed.

        Manuscipt - Promissory Notes with Impressed Revenue Stamps

      Indiana, 1801. Indiana Territory. Collection of four impressed revenue stamps found on three manuscript promissory notes, one signed and stamped in Clark County 1801 which is on laid paper watermarked 'GEN S' (part of the General Stamp Office Watermark), and two in Madison 1816 which are also watermarked 'Stamp US.' Half leafs, written recto and verso, each measuring roughly 8 x 4 inches, each signed in the original by the borrower. Very good condition, beautifully preserved, with crisp, clearly visible revenue stamps. In the United States colonies and territories documentary stamp taxes were imposed on promissory notes as seen here, as well as deeds, insurance premiums, and other legal transactional documents. The revenue stamp impressed upon the document, denoted that tax had been paid, the document then rendered legally binding. [Clarksville], 1 October 1801. Featuring 2 unique revenue stamps, this promissory note involves some notable individuals. Representing Forty-two Pounds Sterling, One Shilling, Nine Pence, (£42.1.9) the debtor being a William Jones, the creditor is Thomas Bullitt (probable relation or descendent of Captain Thomas Bullitt founder of Louisville), and the witness being Davis Floyd, a Republican politician, at the time Clark County recorder based in Clarksville, who was also convicted of aiding American Vice President Aaron Burr in a treason conspiracy. The seals, or stamps, issue numbers RM260 and RM261, are described in the Scott 2007 Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps and Covers, page 556, stating "The distinguishing feature of the stamps in this issue is the counter stamp which usually appears below the other stamp. One stamp has the design of the eagle and shield... but the name of the state is omitted and the denomination appears below instead of above the eagle and shield." All of the stamping was done in Washington, the eagle and shield stamp was impressed by the General Stamp Office, and the counter stamp, a cameo of thirteen stars, was impressed by the Commissioner of the Revenue, its abbreviated title also being part of the stamp motif. This leaf is purpose made paper, the Second Federal Issue as per the United States Act of 23 April 1800, put into use from 1 March 1801 to 30 June 1802. The paper was furnished to various institutions by the government, and contained a vertical watermark 'GEN STAMP OFFICE' in the margin. Madison, 19 November 1816. Featuring a five cent eagle and shield revenue stamp, this promissory note is for $100, the debtors here being Thomas and William Montgomery, the lender being the Farmers and Mechanics Bank of Indiana. The verso is signed by a clerk, J. Thomas. This stamp is issue number RM275. Madison, 19 November 1816. Featuring a ten cent eagle and shield revenue stamp, this promissory note is for $200, all parties being the same as the latter document, the differences being the values of the note, and as such, the value of the revenue tax. This stamp is issue number RM276. These two eagle and shield stamps are described in the Scott 2007 Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps and Covers, page 557, indicating two distinguishing features of the stamps in this issue, the absence of the state name, and varying positions of the eagle corresponding to its monetary value. With this issue the use of a counter stamp was also abolished. Again, the stamping was done in Washington, this paper being watermarked 'STAMP U.S.' and being sold by the government. These half leafs are also on purpose made paper, the Third Federal Issue as per the United States Act of 2 August 1813, put into use from 1 January 1814 to 31 December 1817. The paper was furnished to various institutions by the government, and contained a vertical watermark 'GEN STAMP OFFICE' in the margin. An impressed duty stamp is a form of revenue stamp created by embossing a stamp onto a document using a metal die to confirm that the required duty (tax) had been paid. The stamps have been used to collect a wide variety of taxes and duties, including stamp duty and duties on alcohol, financial transactions, receipts, cheques and court fees. Usage has been worldwide but particularly heavy in the United Kingdom and British Commonwealth. Stamp duty is a tax that is levied on documents. Historically, this included the majority of legal documents such as cheques, receipts, military commissions, marriage licences and land transactions. A a revenue stamp impressed upon the document, or attached to it, denoted that tax had been paid, the document then rendered legally effective. Davis Floyd (1776 -1834) was an Indiana Jeffersonian Republican politician who was convicted of aiding American Vice President Aaron Burr in the Burr conspiracy. Floyd was not convicted of treason however and returned to public life after several years working to redeem his reputation. He lost his wealth in the Panic of 1819 and died in obscurity in Florida 1834. His brother was Charles Floyd, the only man to die on the Lewis Clark expedition. In 1801 Floyd moved to Clarksville, Indiana. In the same year Floyd became Deputy Sheriff of Clark County and the Clark County Recorder. Along with his father, Floyd was appointed to the Clarksville Board of Trustees. He ferried boats through the Falls of the Ohio rapids until 1808. Floyd was elected as a Clark County delegate to the territory's slavery convention in 1802, the convention would set in motion events that would attempt to legalize slavery and indentured servitude in the Indiana Territory. From 1803 to 1806 he was Sheriff of Clark County. In an 1805 special election he was elected to the Indiana Territorial Legislature; then the only anti-slavery representative during his term, he was usually at odds with the rest of the legislature. By the end of his term he had become too involved in the Aaron Burr Conspiracy to run for re-election and was succeeded by James Beggs as Clark County's representative. Established 6 September 1814, The Farmers and Mechanics Bank, located in Madison, was the first two banks in Indiana Territory. Only days later, 10 September, the territorial legislature chartered The Bank of Vincennes. The property of the former was limited to $750,000 and that of the latter to $500,000. Both charters were granted till 1835. January 1, 1817, the Vincennes institution was adopted as the State Bank of Indiana and it was authorized to increase its capital by a million dollars, to be divided into ten thousand shares of $100. It was also empowered to adopt the Farmers and Mechanics Bank as one of its branches. By 1821 other branches had been established at Brookville, Corydon and Vevay. Administrators of the State Bank became so corrupt that in 1822, after proving sundry crimes such as embezzlement, the Legislature deprived them of the franchises.. Very Good.

        VOYAGES FROM MONTREAL on the River St. Laurence [sic] Through the Continent of North America to the Frozen and Pacific Oceans in the Years 1789 and 1793, with a Preliminary Account of the Rise, Progress, and Present State of the Fur Trade of That Country.

      T. Cadell et al., London 1801 - A FINE PRESENTATION BINDING. London: T. Cadell et al., 1801. 1st edition. 4to. 1pp (half-title) + 1pp (title leaf) + viii (Preface) + cxxxii (A General History of the Fur Trade) + 412pp + 2pp (errata). Engraved frontispiece portrait, 3 large folding engraved maps (1 with hand-coloured details). Original elaborately tooled burgundy boards (minor marks), seamlessly re-spined using tools of the period to match the style and patterns of the boards. Occasional and trivial light foxing in a few places. Text and maps clean and crisp. There are very few binders that could match the skill and techniques required of this restored binding, one of them being Aquarius of London who, in all likelihood, was commissioned to do this binding. The boards date from approximately 1810, and, given the elaborate rolls and decorations, are typical of a presentation binding from the period, unlike the early and often simple bindings that are found with copies of Mackenzie's Voyages. Certainly the finest copy we have had to offer in many years. Alexander Mackenzie (1764-1820), a fur trader with the North West Company, sought a passage from the Athabasca country to the Pacific Ocean. Following Peter Pond's speculation that the Pacific Ocean could be reached by a water route from Great Slave Lake, his first expedition from Fort Chipewyan in 1789 took him not to the Pacific as he had hoped, but down what would become the Mackenzie River to the "Frozen" or Arctic Ocean. In his second attempt, he ascended the Peace River by canoe and on foot, and crossed over into the headwaters of what he thought was the Columbia River (but was actually the Fraser River). After being turned back by its unmanageable and torrential currents, he and his party decided to make an overland attempt to reach the Pacific Ocean. In this they were successful, and arrived near the present site of Bella Coola, on the British Columbia coast. [Hill 2: 1063; Peel 3: 55; Sabin 43414; Strathern 343; Streeter 3653; TPL 658.

        Traite medico-philosophique sur l'alienation mentale ou la manie

      Paris: Richard (An IX), 1801. Foundation of Modern Psychiatry Pinel, Philippe(1745-1826). Traite medico-philosophique sur l'alienation mentale, ou la manie. 8vo. lvi, 318pp. Fold. printed table, 2 engraved plates. Paris: Richard, Caille & Ravier, An IX [1800/1801]. 193 x 118 mm. Quarter mottled sheep, paste paper boards, vellum corners, slightly worn at spine. Light browning & foxing, but a fine copy. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 4922. Pinel was one of the first to treat the insane humanely, striking the chains from the lunatics at the Bicetre Hospital and implementing his "traitement moral," a compassionate form of psychiatric therapy that identified insanity with illness rather than moral perversity or demonic possession. In his Traite, Pinel replaced the theorizing and speculation characteristic of earlier works on mental illness with his own practical observations of the Bicetre's mental patients, whose behavior could now be observed undistorted by cruel treatment. He retained the old classifications of mental illness, but distinguished mania from delirium, and recognized the relationships between periodic mania, melancholy and hypochondria. He recognized emotional disorders to be the main cause of intellectual dysfunction, but also took into account heredity, predisposition and hypersensitivity, and attempted to find relationships between insanity and cranial deformity. Pinel founded the Salpetriere's famous school of psychiatry and trained a generation of psychiatrists, the most important of whom was Esquirol. Norman 1701. Hunter & Macalpine, pp. 602-10. Zilboorg, pp. 319-41.

      London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. for the Author, and sold by J. Bell, 1801. First edition. [iv], 236; [iv], 237-482, [2] pp. 1 vols. Large 8vo (9-7/8 x 6-1/4 in.). Contemporary diced Russia, covers gilt with wide outer border of filets and small floral tools, spine gilt in six compartments, all edges marbled. Joints rubbed, spotting to first and last few leaves. This work was mockingly nicknamed "Tales of Plunder" due to its high quality and price. It includes some pieces by Walter Scott who, although not mentioned on the title page, collaborated with Lewis on this collection of ballads. "The considerable literary output of Lewis is neglected today, but his influence upon contemporary romanticism and the catharsis which his extravagance effected upon its morbid elements cannot be overlooked" (Kunitz & Haycraft).

        Traite medico-philosophique sur l'alienation mentale

      Paris: Richard, Caille et Ravier, 1801. 8vo. lvi, 318pp. 2 engraved plates, folding table. 196 x 122 mm. Sheep c. 1801, rebacked; boxed. Minor toning, scattered foxing, but very good. First edition. Pinel was one of the first to treat the insane humanely, striking the chains from the lunatics at the Bicêtre Hospital and implementing his ?"traitement moral,?" a compassionate form of psychiatric therapy that identified insanity with illness rather than moral perversity or demonic possession. In his Traité, Pinel replaced the theorizing and speculation characteristic of earlier works on mental illness with his own practical observations of the Bicêtre?'s mental patients, whose behavior could now be observed undistorted by cruel treatment. He retained the old classifications of mental illness, but distinguished mania from delirium, and recognized the relationships between periodic mania, melancholy and hypochondria. He recognized emotional disorders to be the main cause of intellectual dysfunction, but also took into account heredity, predisposition and hypersensitivity, and attempted to find relationships between insanity and cranial deformity. Pinel founded the Salpêtrière?'s famous school of psychiatry and trained a generation of psychiatrists, the most important of whom was Esquirol. Garrison-Morton 4922. Norman 1701.

        "Hilpoltstein", Landschaft mit einer Burg.

      . Bleistift, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: CCN, rechts unten betitelt (?) "Hilpoltstein", links oben alte Paginierung "K. II. 186 ". 20,1:28,9 cm Links oben kleine Knickfalte, ein wenig fleckig. Hilpoltstein ist ca. 35 km von Nürnberg entfernt. Daß Klein Studienreisen in die nähere Umgebung seiner Geburtsstadt unternahm, ist nachweisbar, so z.B. 1801 nach Wildenfels, das in der Nähe von Hilpoltstein liegt.. Bereits als Achtjähriger erhielt Klein Zeichenunterricht durch den Maler G.C. II. von Bemmel (1765-1811). 1802 wurde er von G.P. Zwinger (1779-1819) an der Nürnberger Zeichenschule unterrichtet. 1805-1811 war er Lehrling bei dem Maler, Zeichner und Kupferstecher A. Gabler (1762-1834). Ab 1811 Studium an der Kunstakademie in Wien. 1814 und 1816 erfolgte eine Reise nach Ungarn und 1815 eine Studienreise an Main und Rhein. 1818 hielt er sich in München auf, wo er mit P. von Hess (1792-1871) und M.J. Wagenbauer (1775-1829) verkehrte. 1819 kehrte Klein in seine Heimatstadt zurück. Von dort aus unternahm er mit seinen Freunden J.C. Erhard (1795-1822), den Brüdern F.P. (1779-1840) und H. Reinhold (1788-1825) und E. Welker (1788-1857) eine Reise ins Salzkammergut. Von Ende 1819 bis August 1821 weilte Klein in Italien. Zunächst Rückkehr nach Nürnberg. 1833 wird er zum Mitglied der Berliner Kunstakademie ernannt. 1839 zog er nach München, wo er bis zu seinem Tode leben sollte. Ab 1848 beginnendes Augenleiden, was in den nächsten Jahren zu einer zunehmenden Beeinträchtigung des Sehvermögens führen und schließlich ab 1871 das Arbeiten unmöglich machen sollte. Klein ist ein charakteristischer Vertreter der Biedermeierzeit. Sein Hauptgebiet war die Genremalerei. Einflüsse der holländischen Maler und Radierer K. Dujardin (1622-1678) und A. van de Velde (1636-1672) sowie des Tiermalers J.H. Roos sind zu beobachten, die er jedoch gut umzusetzen wußte. Darüber hinaus ließ er sich von Wagenbauer, Hess und W. von Kobell (1766-1853) anregen. Zahlreiche Museen besitzen Werke von Klein, u.a. die National-Galerie Berlin, Neue Pinakothek München, Sammlung Georg Schäfer Schweinfurt, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart und die Albertina Wien.

Fecit / d 3t octobr.. 1801 ". 16,9 :21,4 cm. - Verso mehrere Bleistiftstudien von Füßen. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Goethe und die Kunst. Hrsg. von S. Schulze. Frankfurt am Main, Schirn Kunsthalle, 1994, Nr. 169 mit Farbabb. "Bei Urlaub erhält die bürgerliche Genredarstellung eine etwas frivole Note, die dem französischen Rokoko Rechnung trägt und einen pikanten Gegensatz zu der eher biederen Auffassung der Frankfurter Maler bildet." (Op. cit. S. 241).. Neben seinem Onkel Georg Anton (1713-1759) und seinem Bruder Georg Anton Abraham Urlaub (1744-1788) ist Georg Anton das bedeutendste Mitglied der berühmten Malerfamilie. Er malte Bildnisse, historische und mythologische Darstellungen, militärische Szenen und Genrebilder. Als Bildnismaler war er einer der ersten, die seine Figuren in die natürliche Landschaft stellte. Er gilt als liebenswürdiger Meister des ausgehenden Rokoko und des frühen Klassizismus.

(ii), xiv, 288, 122, (2) pp. Later boards and paper spine to style, the original spine label trimmed and preserved, all edges uncut. A very good copy. Though his published works rest solely on his legal writings, Kyd was a political radical. He was on close terms with Thomas Hardy and John Horne Tooke, with whom he was charged with high treason in 1794 (all the defendants were subsequently acquitted or discharged), and other radicals of the period. He went on to defend the publisher Thomas Williams who had been charged with blasphemy for publishing Tom Paine's Age of Reason. A scarce work, first published in 1799. Worldcat lists two copies of the earlier edition, at the British Library and the Library of Congress, plus just three copies of this second edition. The British Library does not appear to include the second part of the work bound in here, entitled "Methodical Arrangement of an Act, passed 39 Geo. III C. 13".

        Oeuvres d'Agriculture et d'Economie rurale

[72] (including folding tables), viii, 205, [1] pp. Illustrated with a frontispiece and 29 hand-coloured, copper-engraved plates. 4to., 250 x 195 mm, bound in original publisher's pink wrappers. Preserved in a new tan cloth folding box. Paris: La Veuve de l'Auteur, 1801. Second Revised and Greatly Enlarged Edition of this rare work on French/Swiss husbandry. This delightful example of bookmaking in many ways transcends the original subject matter and intention of the author, who died before its publication. Deplanazu was a member of the Société Physique et Économique de Zurich en Suisse. His Oeuvres d'Agriculture et d'Economie rurale is an informative guide to contemporary husbandry, but is also prized by book collectors as a unusual and appealing illustrated book in its own right. The illustrations comprise an engraved frontispiece and 29 hand-coloured engraved plates, executed after the author's own designs and cut by Sellier. There are figures of agricultural instruments, tools and machines (including a mill, an incubator, a lawn mower, a machine to raise water, and more). In the various treatises herein Deplanazu examines the culture of the potato, the various manners of sowing, the food of cattle, the conservation of fruit, the breeding of poultry, the composition of manures, the manner of mowing grasses, the various methods of planting, the care given to bees, information on flour, pastry making, frosts, brandy, liquors, wines, vegetables, fruits, meats and much more. The work was first published in fascicules in 1786/7, and in this corrected, revised and enlarged edition his widow issued it in book form for greater convenience. In excellent condition. A rare book, with OCLC listing only 7 copies of this edition and 3 of the first. Not in Vicaire or Oberlé.
