        Histoire de la canne, et précis sur les moyens de la cultiver et d'en extraire le sucre. Suivi de plusieurs mémoires sur l'art du Rafineur; sur la nature et les propriétés du sucre; sur les moyens de convertir le suc de la canne en vin et d'en obtenir le rhum; sur l'indigo; sur le régime des habitations des Colonies et sur l'état de Saint-Domingue avant la rèvolution .

Bellissimo esemplare in barbe e a margini chiusi conservato nella sua bross. edit. con tit. impresso su tassello in carta. Opera assai importante, la più precisa ed ampia intorno alla cultura e alla lavorazione della canna da zucchero e dei suoi derivati alimentari nella colonia francese di Santo Domingo. L'autore, medico francese emigrato a Santo Domingo nel 1784, la diede alle stampe su incitamento del governo francese allo scopo di valorizzare i prodotti delle nuove colonie e dimostrare i vantaggi di una buona organizzazione manifatturiera basata sullo sfruttamento delle maestranze di colore. Assai particolareggiati appaiono i capitoli sulle tecniche di fermentazione e distillazione delle melasse per la fabbricazione del rum, bevanda che ll'epoca del Dutrône godeva di straordinaria considerazione, tanto da essere accettata come moneta di scambio in tutti i porti europei.

        Napoleon's General Joachim Murat orders Commander Achille Dampierre to go to Naples, direct the arming of the coastal city of Taranto, and send him "by extraordinary mail all the news that you will learn of Egypt ? Send a secret and secure agent to Sicily. I'll give you funds for this purpose; It would be very easy in Sicily to procure reliable information on Egypt?

Florence [Italy], ""15 Messidor an 9"" (July 4, 1801). In French, with English translation. To Adjutant Commander [Achille] Dampierre. In 1800, Murat had married Caroline, a younger sister of Emperor Napoleon.Achille Pierre Henri Picot de Dampierre (1775-1802) commanded a detachment of 300 men in the Battle of Marengo in Italy in June 1800 where he was captured; Murat also participated in this battle. Released, Dampierre joined the Army of Observation of the South in December 1801 and participated in the Santo Domingo expedition where he died on May 30, 1802. Toussaint Louverture, Governor of the French colony of Santo Domingo, proclaimed a Constitution on July 8, 1801, four days after Mural wrote this letter.In full, ""The Ambassador of the Republic of the Court of Naples can no longer undertake to submit to the Neapolitan Government the different applications that circumstances force me to reiterate, and fearful of hurting its delicacy or the dignity of his character, you will get to Naples where you will establish until further notice.""I charge you primarily to seek the implementation of the various commitments that have taken towards M. le chevalier Acton relative to the arming of Taranto; [Taranto is a port city facing the Ionian Sea, about 200 miles east of Naples] You will try to get the crews of the three frigates which must be transferred to us, at our disposal for us, help to Taranto, where they will immediately debark and be put at the disposal of the Government. ""You will find below attached a letter that I send to that effect to the Minister of His Majesty. You'll care that funds for the balance of the divisions of Mathieu and Soult are regularly sent at the end of each month. You me will send exactly, and by extraordinary mail all the news that you will learn of Egypt; take good care, primarily relate in your reports the dates and the times you know. ""Send a secret and secure agent to Sicily. I'll give you funds for this purpose; It would be very easy in Sicily to procure reliable information on Egypt. I will make known to General Soult your mission to Naples; there you will also address the claims that you may have to this Court. I am comfortable saving Citizen Alquier the little details for an Ambassador, and confident of this mission, I pay with pleasure just tribute of praise that deserve your zeal and your intelligence.""P.S. I gave the order to the payer to give one thousand francs per month and two thousand for your trip. J.M.The Siege of Alexandria, Egypt, was fought between French and British forces, August 17, 1801, to September 2, 1801. It was the last action of the Egyptian Campaign. The French had occupied Alexandria, a major fortified harbor city on the Nile Delta in northern Egypt since July 2, 1798, and the garrison there surrendered on September 2, 1801. Napoleon had left Egypt in August, 1799."

        Die wahren Jacobiner im preussischen Staate oder actenmässige Darstellung der bösen Ränke und betrügerischen Dienstführung zweyer preussischer Staatsminister.

      Berlin, (o.V.), 1801. 4 Bl., 256 Seiten. Halbleinen der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung, 8°. - Goed. VII, 412, 17, 3; Hayn/G. VI, 284: "Von größter Seltenheit! Das berühmte schwarze Buch, das die Verschleuderung preußischer Crongüter (Crotoscin) durch die Minister Hoym und Goldbeck blosslegte. Hans Heinrich Ludwig von Held (1774-1842) war ein Günstling des Ministers Struensee, auf dessen Kosten dieses Buch gedruckt wurde." Er erlebte als preußischer Finanzbeamter in Posen nach der Teilung Polens, dass an Preußen gefallene Ländereien an Spekulanten vergeben wurden und hohe Beamten sich dadurch bereicherten. Held entschloss sich, durch eine kommentierte Sammlung von Akten und Briefen in Buchform das System der zweifelhaften Gütervergaben und das Beziehungsgeflecht der beteiligten Personen öffentlich bekannt zu machen. Heimlich ließ er im Jahr 1800 sein 256-seitiges Buch mit dem Titel "Die wahren Jacobiner im preußischen Staate ..." drucken, mit dem Druckort "Überall und nirgends" und der Jahresangabe 1801. Der Autor wird darin nicht genannt, die Kommentare sind mit "A. v. H." unterschrieben. Als Autorenlohn erhielt Held zwölf Exemplare, die er schwarz binden und auch den Schnitt schwarz einfärben ließ. Da er in diesem Werk die Korruption öffentlich anprangerte, wurde er als "preußischer Jakobiner" verfolgt. Das Werk wurde als "Schwarzbuch", wegen des schwarzen Umschlags und Schnittes, berüchtigt - alle späteren sogenannten "Schwarzbücher" beziehen sich auf dieses Werk - und es brachte dem Verleger eine halbjährige, dem Verfasser eine anderthalbjährige Festungshaft (1802-1803) ein. - Das Titelblatt ist auf ähnlichem, zeitgleichen Papier in Faksimile eingefügt, die Deckel sind mit schwarzem Papier-Bezug unter Verwendung des goldgeprägten braunen Leinen-Rücken-Bezugs erneuert. Innen nur wenig gebräunt. Insgesamt ein Exemplar in gut erhaltenem Zustand.

        Philosophisch-medicinische Abhandlung über Geistesverwirrung oder Manie. Mit Kupfertafeln, welche die Form einiger Schedel, und die Abbildungen einiger Wahnsinnigen darstellen., Aus dem Französischen übersetzt und mit Anmerkungen versehen von Mich. Wagner

      Wien Schaumburg und Compagnie, 1801 - deutsche EA! Signiertes Unikat aus der Bibliothek von Michael Wagner, dem Übersetzer und Arzt am Narrenturm im Allgemeinen Krankenhaus Wien. Zahlreiche handschriftliche Anmerkungen von Wagner auf Französisch und Deutsch auf den Korrekturblättern, oft Exzerpte aus anderen Veröffentlichungen. - ZILBOORG/HENRY 329ff. halten die Einleitung für "one of the most valuable texts in the history of psychiatry" und drucken sie in ihrem Buch vollständig ab. Zu Pinel s. GARRISON/MORTON 4922 ("Pinel was among the first to treat the insane humanely; he dispensed with chains and placed his patients under the care of specially selected physicians. Garrison considered the book one of the foremost medical classics, giving as it did a great impetus to the humanitarian treatment of the insane. It was submitted as a prize essay in 1792, the Revolution preventing its publication at that time."), NORMAN CATALOGUE, 1701: "In October 1793, while serving as médecin des infirmeries at Bicêtre Hospital, Pinel had the chains struck off from forty-nine male psychiatric patients in order to substitute for his cruel oppression his ‘traitement morale‘, a humane form of psychiatric therapy that identified insanity with illness rather than moral perversity or demonic possession. This dramatic act, performed in the liberating spirit of the American and French revolutions, found immediate and enduring favor in the popular imagination as a symbol of a new attitude toward the insane, and ignited a general desire for more humane treatment of the mentally ill that culminated in the English nonrestraint movement of the mid-nineteenth century. Yet humanitarian treatment of the insane, although crucial to Pinel‘s psychiatric work, was not that work‘s sole focus, for Pinel also devoted himself to establishing psychiatry as a scientifically based branch of medicine. His Traité replaced the speculation and theorizing characteristic of earlier discussions of insanity with his own practical observations of the lunatics of the Bicêtre, whose illnesses could now be observed undistorted by cruel treatment. He retained the old classifications of mental illness, stating that contemporary medicine was as yet too primitive for more precise categories, but did introduce some subdivisions, isolating mania from delirium and recognizing 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.", HIRSCH/H. IV, 571; ALEXANDER/SELESNICK 151ff. - Michael Wagner ( ? - 1812) berichtet in seinen "Anmerkungen und Zusätzen" (ab S. 324) u.a. ausführlich über das Wiener Tollhaus ("Narrenturm") Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 2210 21,5 x 13cm, Pappband der Zt., lädiert, unbeschnitten, Stempel in fliegendem Vorsatz und Titel (recto und verso), Bleistiftnotizen im Text, durchschossenes Exemplar in mod.

        A Sequel to Barrington's Voyage to New South Wales, comprising an Interesting Narrative of the Transactions and behaviour of the Convicts; the Progress of the Colony [etc]

      London: C. Lowndes, 1801. Duodecimo, on blue-ish paper, pp. viii, 5-88, [vi]; a few old ink notes; in good condition in old half calf. "Barrington" account, chiefly from Collins. Second edition of the so-called sequel to Barrington, issued by the same publishers as the Voyage to Botany Bay. As with most Barrington material this is fraudulently attributed to him, actually drawing most of its content from David Collins' Account of the English Settlement of New South Wales (1798).This was reprinted from an earlier Lowndes edition of 1800, reset in semi-chapbook form with a smaller typeface and tighter spacing, and with the omission of the chapter summary heads.Fraudulent or not, these early "Barrington" printings represent the form in which information about New South Wales reached those of the public who could not afford the expensive quartos published by members of the First Fleet.

      1801. |~||~|"THE BIBLE OF CLASSICISM" DURAND, Jean Nicholas Louis. Recueil et Parallele des Edifices de tout genre, anciens et modernes. 1 full-page title with engraved text by Durand, surrounded by architectural lithographic vignettes by Baltard, 1 full-page Table, and illustrated with 90 full-page lithographic plates, all in the original unfolded state. Oblong elephant folio, 480 x 685 mm, bound in recent half red morocco spine, matching paper over boards. Paris: L'Ecole Polytechnique, chez l'Auteur, 1799-1801. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, earliest issue printed by Durand himself. One of the earliest issues of Cahier 1 was exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1799. This is a copy of the so-called "Le Grand Durand," meant for the use of architects, designers, decorators and painters. The importance of the "Le Grand Durand" is attested by the fact that in the 1860s, "at the École des Beaux-Arts, the younger students were forced to swear their hatred for Viollet-le-Duc on the bible of classicism -- none other than Le Grand Durand" (Sergio Villari, J.N.L. Durand, 1990). "Durand's lasting contribution is the separation of architecture from its traditional association with nature and with style…. [he] was the first architectural theoretician to clarify architectural objects by their common formal characteristics - to establish a rational science of design through standardization of functional topology… In the Recueil Durand totally overturns the traditional relation between architecture and nature in favor of abstraction based on a scientific method of classification by type. His concept of architecture is in perfect agreement with the prevailing political philosophy and its emphasis on utility" (Millard p. 174-75). Durand's aim was to offer clear illustrations of the most important buildings of every type constructed since classical times (Egyptian and Roman) up to the late eighteenth-century. Durand consulted over three hundred books on French and Italian architecture and travel literature in composing his work. Over 40 full-page lithographs depict ancient building types, most with ground plans and elevations; others illustrate decorative elements taken from the recently-excavated Herculaneum and Pompeii: vases, sculptures, oil lamps, etc. In his Mellon lectures, "A History of Building Types," Sir Nikolaus Pevsner paid tribute to Durand's pioneering work. Our copy is presented here in the original form, without the accompanying text by Legrand, which was written during the publication of the Recueil and was intended as a commentary on the plates, but only appears in the later editions. The Millard copy belongs to the later edition, with "Gillé fils" as the publisher instead of "Chez l'auteur," and with a slightly different collation. A few isolated spots, otherwise, in fine condition, with all the plates in their original unfolded state. British Architectural Library 956. Millard, French 67. Not in Berlin Katalog or Fowler.

        A Voyage of Discovery to the North Pacific Ocean, and Round the World; In which the Coast of North-West America has been Carefully Examined and Accurately Surveyed,

      London: John Stockdale, , 1801. undertaken by His Majesty's Command, Principally with a View to Ascertain the Existence of any Navigable Communication between the North Pacific and North Atlantic Oceans; and Performed in the Years 1790, 1791, 1792, 1793, 1794 and 1795, in the Discovery Sloop of war and Armed Tender Chatham, under the Command of Captain George Vancouver. a New Edition, with Corrections … 6 volumes octavo (230 × 120 mm). Contemporary quarter sheep, marbled boards, the marbling applied on red-ruled ledger sheets, black morocco labels, edges sprinkled blue. 2 large folding maps and 17 folding engraved plates. A little rubbed, partoicularly on the boards, some browning and occasional foxing throughout, remains a very good set, and not unattractive. First octavo edition, first published in quarto in 1798. "This voyage became one of the most important ever made in the interests of geographical knowledge" (Hill). George Vancouver (1758-1798) had accompanied Cook in the Resolution on his second voyage, in the Discovery on his final voyage, and had seen naval warfare with Rodney in the West Indies in 1782. In 1790 it was decided to negotiate the return of Nootka Sound (Vancouver Island, British Columbia) from the Spanish and make an accurate survey of the coast northwards from the 30th degree of north latitude. "As the route was left to his own judgement, he followed Cook's teaching and went westward, touching at the Cape of Good Hope, surveying the south-west coast of Australia, where he discovered and named King George's Sound, Mount Gardner, Cape Hood, and other points in that neighbourhood. Then passing on to New Zealand, he examined the recesses of Dusky Bay, and where Cook had marked on the chart 'Nobody knows what,' he substituted a correct coastline and the name 'Somebody knows what.' He reached Tahiti on 30 Dec. 1791, and in the following year, after the necessary formalities at Nootka, he examined the strait of San Juan de Fuca, discovered the gulf of Georgia, and, passing on, circumnavigated the large island which has since borne his name. The two following years he continued his examination of the coast from San Francisco, northwards, which, for the first time he accurately delineated. In 1795 he returned to England, by Valparaíso, Cape Horn, and St. Helena" (DNB). Vancouver died before he could edit his narrative, which was prepared for the press by his brother John, and Capt. Peter Puget. He has perhaps been overshadowed by the hydrographic brilliance of Cook, but Hill reminds us that "the voyage was remarkable for the accuracy of its surveys, the charts of the coasts surveyed needing little improvement to the present day. When Charles Wilkes resurveyed Puget Sound in 1841, he was amazed at the accuracy Vancouver had achieved under such adverse conditions and despite his failing health. Well into the 1880s Vancouver's charts of the Alaskan coast remained the accepted standard." Near contemporary ownership inscriptions of "C. de Jersey" to the tile pages of volumes I, III, IV, and V, and similarly early inscriptions of "I. & A. Powell" to the front free endpapers of all but volume II.

        Eigenhändiger Brief (Schluss fehlt). O. O. u. D. [ca. 1858?]

      . gr-8°. 4 S. Bläuliches Papier. Letzte Zeile getilgt.. An einen Musikverleger [Carl Anton Spina?], vornehmlich über Kompositionen von Johann Georg Lickl (1801-1877). "Ach! und Weh! über die Beiträge zu dem 'Pianoforte'! - Von allem den Zeug welches Sie mir; Geehrter Herr; letztens zugesandt haben, ist nichts zu gebrauchen als die Piece von Likl - welche einfach Impromptu betitelt werden soll wie ich es der Composition in dem einliegenden Schreiben vorschlage. 'Passages de Paris' klingt ohrschreiend zu equivogue oder bringt einen ganz unmusikalischen und albernen Sinn mit sich - und eine der zwei Episoden (2t./Des dur) ohne Nahmen des Autors. Bei diesem Stük wünsche ich übrigens eine Kürzung - nähmlich das Alternativo in cis moll müsste gestrichen werden und folglich keine Wiederholung des Hauptsatzes (die durch Ziffern im Manuscript angegeben) statt finden. Haben Sie die Gefälligkeit und fragen Sie bei den Autor an ob er mit Hinweglassung der Seiten 3, 4, 5 und 6, bis auf die 2 Schluss Takte einverstanden ist. NB von der Seite 3 bleiben noch 4 Takte mit den Zahlen 91, 98, 99, 100 bezeichnet, von welchen hunderten Takt an es gleich weiter Seite 6 zum Schluss fortschreitet - Durch diese Kürzung gewinnt das Stük mehr als es verliert; auch glaube ich dass die paar Änderungen die ich in der Harmonie dem Componisten anheim stelle und mit Bleistift hinzugefügt nichts verderben. Schiken Sie also das Manuscript mit diesen Bemerkungen von der Hand zurük, und wenn Ihm meine wohlgemeinte Ansicht zusagt, druken Sie das Stük in einem der Hefte des Piano forte, aber ohne den Titel 'Episode' sondern einfach als Andante ..." Unter dem Titel "Les Passages de Paris. Impromptu en forme d'une Toccata" wird bei Hofmeister XIX, 1858 eine Publikation bei Carl Anton Spina angezeigt. Liszt schreibt weiter über den Komponisten Adolph Greulich (1819-1868): "... Herr Greulich schreibt greuliche Dinge. Anbei sein Opus 14 (3 National Melodien!) - Schicken Sie Ihm dieselben gelegentlich zurück mit der geziemenden Nicht Achtung für ähnlichen Quark! ... ... Die Manuscripte von Herrn Graf (wenn es nicht etwa die 'Episoden' wären?) kann ich nicht auffinden ..."

Housed in a brown quarter morocco solander box. Engraved title page to each, and 160 engraved plates with contemporary colour in all.

The maps are dated between 1 July 1799 and 1 April 1802. Luffman (fl. 1776-1820), "engraver, author, geographer, publisher, goldsmith" (Tooley), is probably best know for his New Pocket Atlas, where attractive circular maps were accompanied by a concise summary of the region portrayed. Uncommon, no other complete copy at auction in the last 50 years; just three locations on COPAC, one perhaps Volume I only, OCLC adds Huntington, National Library of Australia (perhaps with variant title page to volume II dated 1802), and a copy in the Bibliothèque Publique d'Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland.

        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. .

        Ansicht einer römischen Villa am Tiber.

      . Bleistift auf Velin. 23,4:33,7 cm. Provenienz: Vente Salathe, Stempel nicht bei Lugt. Im ganzen etwas fleckig, kleine Fehlstelle an der linken unteren Ecke. Vgl. zu dem Gebäude: S. Wechssler, Ernst Fries (1801-1833), Heidelberg 2000, S. 208 f., Kat. Nr. 271, "Rom, Tiberufer, 1826".. Nach einem mehr als fünfjährigen Aufenthalt in Italien, kehrte Salathe 1821 in die Schweiz zurück. Bevor er sich wieder in Basel niederließ, verbrachte er fünfzehn Wochen in Erstfeld im Kanton Uri. Die in dieser Zeit entstandenen Zeichnungen sind Zeugnisse der in Italien erlangten Sicherheit, eine große Landschaft, auch kleine Landschaftsausschnitte mühelos zu erfassen. 1818 hatte Salathe C. F. von Rumohr (1785-1843) kennengelernt, der ihn förderte und zum Studium vor der Natur anregte. Um seinen Lebensunterhalt zu sichern, war Salathe in Basel als Vedutenstecher tätig, seit 1823 lebte er in Paris.

        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.
