        Jefferson’s Response to the New Haven Merchants’ Remonstrance, and his First Inaugural Address

      New York 1801 - Pamphlet. An Examination of The President's Reply to the New-Haven Remonstrance; with the President's Inaugural Speech, The Remonstrance and Reply a List of Removals from Office and New Appointments. 1801. New York: George F. Hopkins. FIRST EDITION. Octavo. 69pp. "Of the various Executive duties, no one excites more anxious concern than that of placing the interests of our fellow citizens in the hands of honest men, with understandings sufficient for their station.In the case of Samuel Bishop however, the subject of your remonstrance, time was taken, information was sought, and such obtained as could leave no room for doubt of his fitness. From private sources it was learnt that his understanding was sound, his integrity pure, his character unstained .The will of the nation, manifested by their various elections, calls for an administration of government according with the opinions of those elected; if, for the fulfilment of that will, displacements are necessary, with whom can they so justly begin as with persons appointed in the last moments of an administration, not for it's own aid, but to begin a career at the same time with their successors, by whom they had never been approved, and who could scarcely expect from them a cordial cooperation? .I lament sincerely that unessential differences of opinion should ever have been deemed sufficient to interdict half the society from the rights & the blessings of self-government; to proscribe them asunworthy of every trust. It would have been to me a circumstance of great relief had I found a moderate participation of office in the hands of the Majority. I would gladly have left to time & accident to raise them to their just share, but their total exclusion calls for prompter correctives."Historical BackgroundJefferson's ascension to the presidency in 1801 marked the first time in American history that power was transferred from one political party to another. The peaceful transition removed fears of a counterrevolution, a welcome reassurance after the rancorous, drawn-out election of 1800. Jefferson's first "Inaugural Address" (which is printed in this pamphlet), with its famous call to unity ("We are all Federalists; We are all Republicans"); was received with some optimism, though many Federalists remained skeptical. One of the earliest actions of his administration seemed to bear out the Federalist's cynicism. Reacting against the Federalist bias of Adams and Washington in appointing federal officers, Jefferson began replacing Federalist appointees with his own Republican nominees. Jefferson was thorough in this process, replacing officers even in comparatively humble positions. One of the men removed by his administration was a popular customs official, Elizur Goodrich, at the port of New Haven. The reaction of the city's merchants was swift but respectful. Presuming, at least on paper, Jefferson's ignorance of local circumstances, they requested Goodrich's reinstatement. Jefferson's somewhat patronizing reply, which denied the merchant's request while developing a reply that seemed to presume their ignorance of constitutional matters, was criticized by both Federalists and some Republicans, who lamented what they saw as Jefferson's betrayal of his principles.Excerpt: Jefferson's First Inaugural Address: ".though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will, to be rightful, must be reasonable.the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression. Let us then, fellow-citizens, unite with one heart and one mind; let us restore to social intercourse that harmony and affection without which liberty, and even life itself, are but dreary things. And let us reflect, that having banished from our land that religious intolerance under which mankind so long bled and suffered, we have yet gained little, if we countenance a political intolerance, as despotic, as wicked, an.

        Der Geist der Rechte des Menschen in seiner Anwendung auf die Bedürnisse unsrer Zeit. Vom Verfasser der vertraulichen Briefe über Frankreich und Paris. XXII S., 1 Bl., 223 S. Mit gestoch. Titelkupfer von Poll nach Th. Weber. Halblederbd d. Z. (etwas berieben) mit 2 farbigen Rückenschildern und etwas Rückenvergoldung.

      Leipzig, C. H. Stagesche Buchhandlung, (1801). - Erste Ausgabe. Der deutsch-polnische Hauptmann Karl Woyda, Mitglied des italienischen Armeekorps der Franzosen und Adjutant des Generals Moreau, schrieb diese aufgeklärt-liberale Abhandlung in österreichischer Gefangenschaft. "Ich mußte stillschweigend mit ansehen, wie man die wenigen wahren Rechte des Menschen durch unechte Zusätze verfälschte, verdrehte, misdeutete, und nach dem jedesmaligen augenblicklichen Interesse ihnen in Zeit von kaum drey Monaten, zwey sich ganz entgegengesetzte Auslegungen andichtete. Mich dauerte das Volk, das so zum blinden Werkzeuge herabgewürdiget wurde" (Vorrede). Woyda geht vom Naturzustand des Menschen und seinen ursprünglichen Rechten und Freiheiten aus und philosophiert über die beste Staatsverfassung, bürgerliche Gleichheit, Staatslasten und strafende Gesetzgebung bis zur Erörterung der Möglichkeit eines ewigen Friedens. Dessen Chancen beurteilt er am Anfang des gerade begonnenen 19. Jahrhunderts sehr optimistisch, gerade wegen der vielen kriegerischen Auseinandersetzungen des 18. Jahrhunderts, und entwirft Artikel von Friedensverträgen, eine Art Vorgriff auf den Völkerbund. – Titel mit zwei Namenseinträgen. Bis auf das Frontispiz kaum stockfleckig. Gutes Exemplar. – H./B. II 5659 u. 5684. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The History of the Campaign in 1796 … 1799 in Germany and Italy …

      London: Gardiner, Egerton & Wright, , 1801. h 5 volumes octavo. Contemporary streaked calf, red morocco lettering pieces, volume numbers in green morocco roundels to the fourth compartment, edges sprinkled blue. 16 crisply-engraved folding maps and plans Lightly rubbed, corners bumped, some skilful repair to scrapes and gouges to the boards of the first two volumes, tan-burn from the turn-ins to the endpapers, pale browning of the text-blocks. First 4 volumes second editions, the fifth a first. Sometimes ascribed to Thomas Graham, Baron Lynedoch (cf. Halkett & Laing). Contemporary account of the French Revolutionary Wars, with considerable detail of early campaigns of Napoleon, "a young man … [who] was almost constantly victorious in Italy" (Preface). The author offers to those who "would wish to have before them, in one view, all the various facts … combined, arranged, and connected … The Materials from which this work is composed, have been partly collected fro, the accounts officially published at London, Vienna, and Paris; and partly procured, through means of correspondence constantly kept up with some distinguished military characters on the Continent. Some of these have been, and still are, actually engaged in this war; and others have watched its progress with the most attentive and intelligent observation … The knowledge which [the author] himself has personally had of the greater part of the theatre of the war, some of the armies which are engaged in it, and of several of the Generals who command them, joined to some degree of experience on the subject cannot have failed to be of considerable use to him". Fine contemporary armorial bookplate of the Scottish banker and philanthropist Sir William Forbes, 6th Baronet of Monymusk and Pitsligo: "Forbes was a close friend of the poet and philosopher James Beattie, and also of James Boswell, who introduced him to Samuel Johnson in 1773. Urbane and welcoming, with refined tastes in music, dancing, and drawing, Forbes gravitated towards London, where he made his mark in two ways. At one level he was a conversationalist, accepted in West End society, a member of Johnson's Literary Club, and a friend of Sir Joshua Reynolds (for whom he sat); at the other level he was a wise banker, introduced by Lord Melville to William Pitt the younger, who took his advice in monetary matters" (ODNB).

        Système des connaissances chimique et de leurs applications aux phénomènes de la nature et de l’art

      1801. relié. DeCollection. Baudouin imprimeur, Paris, 1801 (Brumaire an IX). 10 volumes In/8 reliure demi-chagrin vert, dos lisse à motifs dans l'esprit romantique à froid, T1 : 215 p. T2 : 352 p. T3. : 344 p. T4 : 322 p. T5 : 396 p. T6 : 340 p. T7 : 377 p. T8 : 330 p. T9 : 447 p. T10 : 195 p. Edition originale. Fourcroy ( 1755-1809). Avec Berthollet, il est l'un des premiers à se convertir aux vues d'Antoine Lavoisier dont il aide à publier les écrits, notamment la Méthode rationnelle de nomenclature. En revanche, lorsqu'en 1793, il remplace Marat, qui a été assassiné le 13 juillet, à la Convention nationale, et est élu au Comité d'instruction publique, il soutient le plan d'éducation de Le Peletier et soutient l'épuration des académies de médecine et des sciences, on ira jusqu'à l'accuser d'avoir provoqué la mort de Lavoisier ou, pour le moins, de n'avoir rien fait pour le sauver. Bien que son nom apparaisse dans de nombreux écrits de chimie, de physiologie et de pathologie, seul ou comme coauteur, il est plutôt un enseignant et un administrateur qu'un véritable chercheur a laissé un Essai sur le pùogistique et les acides (1788) ; Philosophie chimique (1792) ; Tableaux synoptiques de chimie (1805).

Scarpa's books were all superbly illustrated with his own drawings and the plates in this work, engraved by Faustino Anderloni, bear witness to Scarpa's artistic talent. Duke-Elder considered this the greatest work on ophthalmology that had appeared up to its time."­Becker Cat. 207.

Dos lisses richement orné de fers, roulettes. Pièces de titre ornées en maroquin rouge, et de tomaison en maroquin vert. Dos légèrement insolés. Ensemble frotté. Rousseurs éparses.  Rédigé sous le Consulat, cette histoire de la Révolution française se divise en plusieurs périodes : Volume 1 : 1787-1789 ; volume 2 : 1789-1791 ; volume 3 : 1791-10 août 1792 ; volume 4 : 10 août 1792-21 janvier 1793 ; volume 5 : de la mort du roi au 9 Thermidor ; volume 6 : 10 Thermidor-18 Brumaire. Journaliste, Beaulieu fut emprisonné pour ses opinions politiques royalistes à la Conciergerie puis au Luxembourg dont il donnera un récit dans cet ouvrage avec des détails précis sur cette prison. L'auteur se défend dans son introduction d'être partial et se prétend du parti de la raison et du bon sens, rangeant son ouvrage parmi ceux des lumières et des historiens de l'Antiquité, cherchant à analyser les faits qui conduisirent à un changement de la constitution et de la société, ainsi rappelle-t-il dans sa préface les changements profonds de la France au cours de l'histoire, de Clovis à la Révolution. Dès le premier livre de cette série, Beaulieu étudie scrupuleusement les diverses causes qui conduisirent à la Révolution. L'oeuvre de Beaulieu est une des premières histoires complètes de la période révolutionnaire et elle est particulièrement riche en informations. Un tableau récapitule le vote des députés quant à la mort de Louis XVI.

      Boston: by David Carlisle for Joseph Nancrede, 1801. Rare first edition. 8vo, unbound sheets as printed. 54 pp. Very well preserved with just some of the toning one would anticipate and a few minor occasional spots or small stains. RARE, WE KNOW OF NO OTHER COPY CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET AND ONLY ONE COPY AT AUCTION (1991) IN THE LAST 40 YEARS. There are only 32 copies listed in institutional holdings, several of which belong to Harvard. The author, an impartial citizen", is attributed to be James Sullivan (April 22, 1744 - December 10, 1808) who was a lawyer and politician in Massachusetts. He was an early associate justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, served as the state's attorney general for many years, and as governor of the state from 1807 until his death. Being such a well known figure in public service it is understandable why he would have wanted this publication to be anonymous. When Massachusetts debated ratification of the United States Constitution in 1788, Sullivan was one of a number of Massachusetts politicians who expressed reservations about the document, but generally supported ratification. In the debate he proposed that the convention conditionally adopt the Constitution, subject to Congress considering and acting on a suite of amendments.

Michaux's travels also brought him to parts of Europe, Persia, and Madagascar, where he died around 1802. As a result of his prolific work, numerous plants bear his name, such as the Carolina lily (Lilium michauxii). This volume is large, heavy, and fragile; additional postage will be required. Three-quarter black leather over brown buckram-covered thick sturdy boards, all edges gilt. Hinges cracked and boards worn, minor occasional foxing to plates. Tissue guards present. Boards aged, but interior well-preserved. [Attributes: First Edition]

        View of the source of the glaciers and the lake of Kandersteig - Vue de la glaciers et de Lac du Kandersteig.

      - London, G. & W. Nicoll, 1801. Very large broadsheet (80.2 x 56.3 cm). Aquatint, finished by hand.l A fine, large plate of the Kandersteig (= Kandersteg) lake (= Oeschinensee) and glaciers, in the Swiss canton of Bern.Drawn "on the spot" by Claude Louis Châtelet (1753-1795), engraved by the French engraver Jaques Mérigot (later James Merigot; d. 1816) and painted by P. Vanlerberghe from Flanders, who was also known as an etcher. Mérigot and Vanlerberghe moved to London sometime in the 1790's. This plate was made several years after the death of Châtelet. "[Châtelet] embraced with ardour the cause of the Revolution, allied himself with Robespierre and the leaders of the Jacobins, and became a member of the Revolutionary Tribunal. He was arrested some months after the 9th Thermidor, tried, condemned, and executed in Paris, May 7, 1795" (Wikipedia). It is tempting to assume that Mérigot, and perhaps Van Lerberghe too, had close ties with Châtelet and therefore fled to London. As far as we know this plate is a piece of art on its own, not meant to be part of book. It is one of the earliest views of the glacier and it may be of importance in establishing the retreat of the glacier in historic times. A very wide-margined copy. Small chips to the lower corners, slight age-toning, but generally in very good condition, with the imprint and colouring strong and bright.

        Breve resumen de la vida y martyrio del inclyto Mexicano, y proto-martyr del Japon, el Beato Felipe de Jesus. Añadidas algunas obvias reflecciones en honor del mismo Heroë esclarecido, y de esta dichosisima civdad felize en ser su pátria. Por un eclesiàstico de este arzobispado, afecto del santo, quien lo dedica á la exemplarísima, religiosísima provincia del santo evangelio de esta civdad de México.Mexico City, "Oficina Madrileña" [literally "Madrid office", a name used by the Jáuregui heirs], 1802. 4to (19.5 x 14 cm). With engraved title-page dated 1801, an engraved portrait of Felipe de Jésus (both engravings by Montes de Oca) and extra-illustrated with 15 (of 30) engraved plates also by Montes de Oca, from the closely related 1801 print

      - Medina, Imprenta en Mexico 9461; Palau 35446 & 184665 & 363045; Sabin 76029; WorldCat (10? copies of Resumen, including some incomplete, and 3 copies of Vida). Rare account of the life and Japanese martyrdom of the patron saint of Mexico (and first Mexican saint of any kind), Felipe de Jésus (1575 or ca. 1572-1597), with 15 additional plates from the extremely rare and closely related print series of De Jésus's life, issued one year earlier. The engraved title-page, portrait, and the 15 additional plates from the 1801 print series were all produced by José María Montes de Oca (1668-1748), one of the most important book illustrators and engravers of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and all are here coloured by a contemporary hand. De Jésus was a Franciscan missionary who grew up in Mexico and worked at Manilla in the Philippines from 1590 to 1596. On his way back to Mexico a storm forced his ship to land on the Japanese coast, where it was confiscated and he and the other passengers and crew imprisoned. The fact that there were soldiers and cannons on board lead the Japanese authorities to interpret the landing as an attack, so De Jésus and the others were arrested, imprisoned at Kyoto, their ears were cut off, and at Nagasaki on 5 February 1597 they were crucified and executed (pierced by two spears). The print series that supplied the extra illustrations, with the engraved title Vida de San Felipe de Jesus protomartir de Japon y patron de su patria Mexico, is Montes de Oca's finest work, one of the earliest print series published in Mexico, and the 15 plates added to the present book include De Jésus's arrival in the Philippines, his ship in the storm, his imprisonment in Kyoto and his execution at Nagasaki. The. The delicate engravings add visual power to Munibe's account of De Jésus's life. If Munibe gives the correct date of birth, De Jésus was only 21 when martyred in Japan.With a faint pencilled inscription on the back of the engraved title-page. With a worm hole through the front board and nearly half the leaves, occasional small marginal worm holes, and an occasional faint smudge or spot, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. The colouring sometimes bleeds through the paper, but since the plates are blank on the back this presents no problems. The binding shows several chips and scuffs, but the lowest 3 gold-tooled flowers on spine are well preserved and the whole remains structurally sound. Very rare extra-illustrated copy of an early Mexican work on Japan, in a contemporary Mexican binding.

        Erotika Biblion . Nouvelle édition, corrigée sur un exemplaire revu par l'Auteur.

      Vatar-Jouannet, 'chez tous les marchands de nouveautés', 'An IX',, Paris 1801 - Written in prison and first published in 1783, Mirabeau's learned but witty treatise on the varieties of sexuality in antiquity was immediately banned and issued in very few copies (traditionally only 14). Later editions continued to provoke the censor and are also rare. In this Paris edition, a near-contemporary reader has inserted notes on the early publication of the text, the opinion that Mirabeau presents 'des tableaux plus licentieux que ceux de l'Aretin', and Greek transliterations of chapter headings, with definitions.Pia's A-342 conforms to this edition, save for the spelling of the first word of the title. Pia gives 'Errotika' as in all previous editions, while ours reads 'Erotika'. This may therefore be Pia's error, and may also suggest ours is the first edition to bear the modernised title spelling customary in all later editions. 12mo (128 × 80 mm), pp. iv, 248, plus engraved portrait. 8 blank leaves loosely inserted at several points at an early date, some bearing contemporary manuscript notes, one further small annotation (Hebrew characters). Contemporary sprinkled vellum. Becoming loose towards the rear, but secure, lower joint cracked. [Gay I, 150-155 (still the best explanation of the text).] [Attributes: First Edition]

Soiling to plates, heavy soiling to the first few plates of Volume I, offsetting and foxing to plates. An important work in the history of architecture. First edition of the "first survey of world architecture based on building types" - RIBA. "Durand's lasting contribution is the separation of architecture from its traditional association with nature and with style." Durand "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 174-75) Brunet II, 904; British Architectural Library 956.

Première édition. Le grand naturaliste et géologue suisse était mort dans sa propriété de Conches le 22 janvier 1799. Cet éloge a été donné par le littérateur genevois Jean Senebier [1742-1809], l'un des plus illustres savants de son pays et de son temps. "Doué d'une intelligence vive, d'une mémoire tenace, assidu au travail et se délassant de l'étude par l'étude même, Senebier s'appliqua avec un zèle égal à des recherches fort différentes ; on le vit passer sans effort comme sans lassitude de la théologie à la botanique, du classement des livres à l'observation microscopique, de la physique à l'histoire. Chacun de ses travaux dénote de l'exactitude, de la méthode, un talent sérieux et réfléchi". Cf. Hoefer. Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl.
