        [Perkins's Metallic Tractors] Cases, (not before in this journal) of practice with Perkins's patent metallic tractors

      London: George Cooke, n.d. (1801?). FIRST EDITION. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo. [4] pp. Recent sympathetic wrappers. Includes testimonies dated between Sept. and Dec. 1800. Issued by Benjamin Douglas Perkins, son of inventor Dr. Elisha Perkins. Contains a number of testimonies to the efficacy of the device. The remedy was invented in Connecticut by Elisha Perkins around 1795-1796, and consisted of two metal rods, intended to cure rheumatism, inflammation and pain in the head and face by being rubbed over the affected area; even at the time, the Connecticut Medical Society condemned the tractors as "delusive quackery" (DAB). Copies located: Dartmouth, Wellcome.

        A General Synopsis of Birds [six volumes, with:] Supplement to the General Synopsis of Birds [two volumes, and:] Index ornithologicus... [two volumes].

      London: Leigh and Sotheby, 1781-, 1781-1801. Together ten volumes, quarto (249 x 195 mm.); with altogether 142 very fine hand coloured etched plates, a few heightened with gold, eight hand coloured etched title-page vignettes after and by Latham, a very fine set in contemporary tree calf, gilt, highly decorated gilt spines. One of the finest sets we have seen, in outstanding original condition.This was the first major ornithological collection to take serious notice of the birds collected on all three of Cook's voyages, including the famous illustration of the glorious Red-Tailed Black (or "Banksian") Cockatoo. This is also the earliest major study to include any significant number of Australian birds, almost 200 of which are noted in the famous 1801 supplement volume - all post First Fleet ornithological discoveries. This set is further enhanced by containing the two rare index volumes, not often seen.John Latham (1740-1837) was the pre-eminent ornithologist of his day and a close friend of leading scientific figures including Sir Joseph Banks, Thomas Pennant and Sir Ashton Lever, with whom he swapped specimens and reports of the latest ornithological discoveries: 'known as the Grandfather of Australian ornithology, he was the first to describe, and to name scientifically, a large number of Australian birds... ' (Whittell, The Literature of Australian Birds). Many of the illustrations in the General Synopsis were done by Latham with the assistance of his daughter Ann. Born in 1772 Ann was an amateur artist and several of her watercolours were engraved in 1789 for Govenor Phillip's The Voyage... to Botany Bay. It is thought that Ann was the first female artist to publish illustrations of Australian species as her work published in Phillip's Voyage predates Sarah Stone's work in White's Journal by several months (Christine Jackson, Sarah Stone, p.146).Latham had unfettered access to the collections of the British Museum, that of Banks, the Leverian Museum, and the field notes of second voyage veteran Johann Forster. As a result, this is not only a major early work of ornithology, it includes early notice and many beautiful illustrations of birds from every corner of the Pacific: Kamchatka, Nootka, Hawaii, Tahiti, Tonga, New Zealand, and Australia, the vast majority collected by Cook and his scientists (the Third Voyage birds invariably noted as having been collected by "our late voyagers" or "our circumnavigators"). What is immediately noticeable is how many of the birds illustrated on Latham's plates are actually from the Pacific, testament to his desire to make available the newest specimens; in fact, it was his aim to record all known bird species discovered in the late eighteenth century.Any number of birds are described from specimens in the Leverian Museum (the small note "Lev. Mus." is probably the most commonly used throughout, and countless notes refer to the collection in some way). In a similar vein, an enormous number of more exotic species (the Pacific, South-East Asia, North America, the Indies, Newfoundland, the Antarctic waters, etc.) are from the Banks collection. Latham was the right man at the right place and time to work on the newly-discovered Australian species. He was later largely responsible for the natural history specimens in Phillip's Voyage of 1789.Because Latham's work dates from what might be called the pre-scientific era, the field notes and descriptions are often chatty and interesting (and not infrequently rather interested in how the different birds tasted). There are occasional lapses in his knowledge of the place of origin of different birds, but by our count the number collected on Cook's voyages exceeds 177, of which 33 are illustrated. Included in that number are the Australian birds, all of which date from the three voyages of Cook, notably the fine plate of the Banksian Cockatoo, one of the very few Australian birds actually bought back by Banks, and perhaps only the second Endeavour-voyage bird to be illustrated (after the Rainbow Lorikeet depicted in Peter Brown's 1776 work.The pursuit of Australian natural history is neatly summarised by the additions of the second supplement volume of 1801. The entire preceding seven volumes include notice of 12 Australian birds, while this single volume adds an incredible 198 more, of which 17 are illustrated, including the Radiated Falcon ("probably a scarce species, only one having been met with, which was found nailed to the side of a barn"); the Variegated Bee-Eater; the Lyrebird (Superb Menura); and the Crimson-Bellied Flycatcher. One point of interest throughout is Latham's frequent references to being able to consult the Aylmer Bourke Lambert drawings (now part of the collection of the SLNSW) and indeed to have conversations with Lambert and other peers: of the Jabiru, for example, Latham writes that he has seen the drawing by his "friend and relation" George Shaw, and that "Mr. Lambert informs me, that only two have yet been met with, but are now and then seen on the muddy banks of the harbour of Port Jackson, searching for fish... " Provenance: Howard Radclyffe Ornithological collection, U.K. In very fine original state.

A Paris, le premier fourneau fut installé le 21 pluviôse an 8 (1800), au 16 rue du Mail, et fut placé sous la direction du jeune botaniste Candolle. Une dizaine d'années plus tard, 6 établissements de ce type distribuaient quotidiennement des soupes aux indigents de la capitale. Exemplaire tel que paru, sous couverture d'attente et non rogné.

        Synopsis methodica fungorum... [Avec] Index botanicus sistend omnes fungorum species in D.C.H. Persoonii Synopsis (...) confectus a D. G[eorg] H[erman] L[ÜHNEMANN]

      deux parties et un index en Gottingae, apud Henricum Dieterich, 1801-1808, , deux parties et un index en un volume in-8, XXX-708 p. en numérotation continue, avec [1] ff. de titre entre la 1re et la 2e partie, 5 pl. ; index de [18] ff. non chiffrés (titre compris), demi-toile postérieure à la bradel, pièce de titre papier manuscrite, 5 planches gravées sur cuivre donnant 60 espèces de champignons. Impression sur papier bis. Édition originale de ce livre fondateur de la taxonomie des champignons, par Christiaan Hendrik Persoon (1763-1836), l'un des plus grands mycologues d'Europe. Persoon considérait la classification de Linné insuffisante pour les champignons. Son Synopsis methodica fungorum développe un classement plus élaboré, dans lequel il reconnait deux classes de champignons, les Angiocarpi et les Gymnocarpi, divisées chacune en trois ordres. C'est un tableau complet des genres, des espèces et des principales variétés connus jusqu'alors. Ce travail est remarquable par le talent d'observation et la justesse des rapprochements que l'auteur a mis en oeuvre dans la disposition des groupes. Sa méthode deviendra rapidement générale. Persoon grandit à l'orphelinat du Cap en Afrique du sud. Il obtint de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales les subventions qui lui permirent d'étudier en Europe, la théologie à Halle, puis la médecine à Leyde. Sa passion pour la botanique le conduisit finalement à Göttingen et à l'Université d'Erlangen, où il devint docteur en sciences naturelles. En 1803, il s'installe à Paris où il mène, dans la pauvreté, une vie de reclus dévouée aux champignons. Exemplaire non rogné. Les feuillets Yy et Yy2 de la seconde partie sont reliés parmi les dernières pages de l'Index botanicus. Cachets et étiquette de l'Institut catholique de Paris. Reliure moyenne. Rousseurs.

        MADAGASCAR – FORT DAUPHIN-ST. LUCIA BAY [TÔLANARO / TOLAGNARO AND MANAFIAFY, ANOSY REGION] (2 CHARTS ON 1 SHEET): A CHART OF THE NORTHERNMOST POINT OF THE BAY OF ST. LUCIA, TO POINT ITAPARE, SURVEYED BY MR. JOHN YOUNG, MASTER OF H.M. (LATE) SHIP THE . [On same sheet together with:] A View of Point Itapare, and the Island of St. Clare, when at Anchor in the small Sandy Bay, Surveyed by Mr. John Young, Master of H.M. (late) Ship the Garland.

      London 1801 - Copper engraving (Very Good, old off-setting from another chart, strong dark engraving impression, on an uncut sheet with very wide side and lower margins, some minor tears and chipping to outer blank margins far outside of platemark), platemark: 39 x 42 cm (15 x 16.5 inches); full sheet: 47 x 63.5 cm (18.5 x 25 inches). An exceedingly rare pair of sea charts (on a single separately-issued sheet) depicting the strategically critical stretch of coastline from Fort Dauphin (Tôlanaro) to St. Lucia Harbour (Manafiafy) in southeastern Madagascar, based on original British surveys conducted under extraordinary circumstances. This extremely rare pair of sea charts printed together on a single sheet depicts the strategically critical stretch of coastline between Fort Dauphin and St. Lucia (modern Tôlanaro (in Malagasy) / Tolagnaro (in the local dialect) and Manafiafy, Anosy Region), in south-easternmost Madagascar. The charts represent the finest surveys of the area up to the time and were conducted in 1798 by a British naval officer who, along with his crew, were marooned on the coast for five months following the wreckage of their vessel. The upper chart, A Chart of the Northernmost Point of the Bay of St. Lucia, to Point Itapare, presents an excellent overview of the area, extending from the old French base of Fort Dauphin, today’s Tôlanaro (on the left) and the northeast up the coast to St. Lucie, modern Manafiafy, an excellent anchorage. The chart is exceedingly detailed, with bathymetric soundings and the locations of navigational hazards in the seas, as well as the sites of villages and profile views along the coasts. Referring to Fort Dauphin the descriptive notes read: ‘N.B. The Magazine appears White like a Sheet drying on the Bushes; all around fine verdure with a number of Tortoiseshells, that appear like Sheep feeding’ and ‘The Fort Stands on the Peninsula 100 Feet above the surface of the Sea.’ The lower chart, A View of Point Itapare, and the Island of St. Clare, when at Anchor in the small Sandy Bay, depicts a key stretch of the coastline within the above, between running from Point Itapare to the end of the St. Clare Peninsula, focussing on the fine anchorage of the ‘Harbour of Locar’ and its ‘Watering Place’. Fort Dauphin was, along the Bay of Saint-Augustin in the northeast, the most important site for Europeans along the coasts of Madagascar. Strategically located at the extreme southeastern tip of the island, the fort guarded a critical shipping lane between Europe and India and beyond. Fort Dauphin Harbour (modern Tolnaro / Tolagnaro Harbour) was valued by Europeans a critical anchorage and waypoint on this route ever since it was first encountered by the Portuguese mariner Diogo Dias in 1500. The French East India Company recognized the strategic value of the site and built Fort Dauphin there in 1643. While the harbour was excellent, the local people resented the French presence and the area was prone to tropical diseases which greatly affected the French settlers. As such, the French abandoned and then resettled Fort Dauphin on several occasion until 1825, when the garrison was taken over by the Imerina forces of King Randama I. Fort Dauphin returned enduringly to French hands in 1852. For its part, St. Lucia Bay (Manafiafy) was an excellent anchorage located just northeast up the coast, which while controlled by the local peoples, was nevertheless a popular re-victualling and trading port for European vessels, especially those who wished to dodge the French presence at Fort Dauphin. In 1642, the French settlers who subsequently founded Fort Dauphin attempted to build a settlement here, but were soon compelled to relocate. The Fascinating Story surrounding the Creation of the Charts In 1797, during the Napoleonic Wars, whereupon France and Britain were engaged in a global conflict, the British Royal Navy dispatched the 28-gun frigate H.M.S. Garland to Cape Town, South Africa (then under British control), from w

Cortes das folhas decorados com pintura descontínua. Belo frontispício decorativo ilustrado com o título escrito com belas letras manuscritas a vermelho e preto enquadrado por composição arquitectónica, com duas colunas de cada lado, com capitéis dourados, sobre embaçamento com a data, e encimadas por frontão triangular tudo pintado em delicada aguarela em que predominam o azul e o dourado.

Os inícios de cada acto estão escritos a vermelho e preto separados do anterior por três linhas e as cenas são separadas por duas linhas. Manuscrito autógrafo com uma encadernação com características pouco comuns que, provavelmente, terá sido elaborado para oferta a alguma personagem da Corte Vi-Reinal da Nova Espanha. Peça de teatro, do género auto sacramental, para ser representada pelo Natal, escrito em versos octossílabos e alguns decassílabos, dividida em três actos: acto primeiro, páginas 1 a 41; acto segundo, páginas 41 a 90; e acto terceiro, páginas 90 a 144. A peça quando representada seria, em certos momentos, acompanhada por música. Don Manuel de Quiroz Y Campo Sagrado. Poeta e calígrafo autor de numerosas poesias e peças de teatro que ficaram, na maior parte, manuscritas e só muito recentemente começaram a ser reeditadas e estudadas no âmbito do movimento para o aprofundamento da literatura escrita no México Colonial. A investigadora Terán Elizondo conseguiu localizar até agora 41 obras. Até ao momento não conseguimos encontrar qualquer referência a esta obra. O autor nasceu na cidade do México cerca de 1751 e terá falecido cerca de 1821, data em que foi publicada a sua última obra. Teve várias profissões, entre as quais professor e desempenhou vários cargos, sendo o último «visitador de la Renta del Tabaco». Era um poeta culto de estilo simples e com bom domínio da versificação que elaborava os manuscritos das suas obras com grande preocupação estética e perícia artesanal, produzindo exemplares de grande beleza caligráfica, adornados com magníficas portadas, qualidades de que este manuscrito é um notável exemplo.

        Histoire naturelle du genre humain, ou recherches sur ses principaux fondemens physiques et moraux ; précédées d'un discours sur la nature des êtres organiques, et sur l'ensemble de leur physiologie

      2 volumes, 435 pp., 9 pl. et Paris, F. Dufart, An IX [1801], in-8, 2 volumes, 435 pp, 9 pl. et 2 tableaux repliés + 394-[2] pp. et 4 pl, demi-basane de l'époque, dos lisse orné et portant des pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge et vert, Édition originale de ce traité de proto-anthropologie qui se trouve au croisement d'un triple héritage, propre au siècle des Lumières : le discours rousseauiste sur l'origine et la formation des sociétés, la méthodologie et le classement linnéen et les études naissantes de physiologie. Julien-Joseph Virey (1775-1846), naturaliste et anthropologue français, s'intéresse ici au genre humain avec l'intention de distinguer sa spécificité vis à vis des autres "corps organisés" (la sociabilité, la perfectibilité, le langage et la morale), afin de le situer au sein de l'ensemble du règne animal en proposant une analyse comparative avec certaines espèces de singes et en étudiant l'influence du contexte géographique, et afin d'en proposer une classification en fonction des différentes "races", des différents âges, etc. "A work typical of early nineteenth-century anthropology in its generalization of types of man, customs, religion, psychology, language, infancy, women, and social organization" (DSB). A la fin du volume 2 se trouve la "Disseration sur un jeune enfant trouvé dans les forêts du département de l'Aveyron" ; Victor de l'Aveyron, enfant sauvage découvert quelques mois auparavant, confié au soin de Sicard dans son Institut national de jeunes sourds de Paris et examiné par Virey lui-même. Cette rencontre permet à l'auteur d'opérer à des conclusions sur l'état primitif de l'homme et de terminer son ouvrage par sur tirade rousseauiste : "Va, jeune infortuné, sur cette terre malheureuse, va perdre dans les liens civils ta primitive et simple rudesse..." L'ouvrage est orné de belle planches en taille-douce : 5, gravées par J.B Racine, représentent différents types humains ; 4 figurent des espèces de grands singes gravées par Perée et Bigant d'après Barraband (bien complet en 4 planche, en dépit de la numérotation non continue) ; 4, par Duhamel, tentent de mettre en évidence la "perfectibilité morale humaine" en comparant la statuaire antiques aux genres "nègres" et aux singes. Mouillures éparses. DSB XIV, p. 44-45.

        THE INAUGURAL SPEECH OF THOMAS JEFFERSON [caption title]

      [Boston]: From the Chronicle Press, by Adams & Rhoades, 1801. Silk broadside, approximately 21 x 15 1/4 inches, printed in two columns. Previously folded, with separations and some loss of text along old fold lines. Expertly restored and backed on linen. Matted and framed. Good plus. An extremely scarce silk broadside printing of Thomas Jefferson's First Inaugural Address. The remarks of the incoming president were a vital factor in the restoration of political peace between the Republican and Federalist parties after the brutal election of 1800, which featured outlandish rhetoric and vicious attacks from both sides, and whose outcome had to be decided by the House of Representatives after a tie in the Electoral College between Jefferson and Aaron Burr. Jefferson's tone of conciliation did much to calm the fears of a fractured government and electorate: "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, and capable of as bitter and bloody persecutions.... Every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle. We have called by different names brethren of the same principle. We are all republicans: we are all federalists." An advertisement in the pages of the March 19, 1801, issue of Boston's INDEPENDENT CHRONICLE notes that the newspaper would be publishing a broadside edition of the speech, with most copies printed on paper, but also that "a few copies will be struck on white satin," of which the present copy is an example. OCLC locates only four copies of this silk edition, at the Huntington Library, the University of Virginia, the Massachusetts Historical Society, and the American Antiquarian Society. A very rare printing of one of the great speeches in early American history. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 718.

Not in Amicus.Called the third edition by Howes, preceded only by a privately printededition for the family and the first published edition, both of theprevious year. Although bibliographers often attribute this book to bothRiedesels, it was in fact written by Mrs. Riedesel. Friedrich Riedeselwas in command of the German troops sent to Canada in February of 1776to aid the British. His wife joined him there in the spring of 1777 andaccompanied him on the campaign under Burgoyne which went south into NewYork that fall, ending in the defeat and surrender of all of Burgoyne'sforces at Saratoga on October 17, 1777. The Riedesels were then captivesof the Americans (although under loose parole), first at Cambridge andthen in Virginia, whence the captive army was moved in late 1778. Therelife was quite pleasant, and the prisoners became friendly with ThomasJefferson. Later they spent time in Pennsylvania, Bethlehem, New York andCanada, before finally returning to Europe in 1783. "Mme Riedesel'snarrative and descriptions are written with impressive directness andsimplicity; there is a quality of genuineness about them that bespeaksher sterling character and the honesty of her record" - Clark. .

        NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA. WITH AN APPENDIX

      Boston: Printed by David Carlisle for Thomas & Andrews [et al], 1801. 364pp. plus folding map and folding table. Frontis. Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked, morocco spine label, gilt. Minor toning to text, light occasional foxing, small marginal repairs to the folding map, short closed tear to L4, touching a few words. Very good. In a brown half morocco box. A very nice copy of Jefferson's essential work on his home state of Virginia. Styled on the titlepage "Eighth American edition." This is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime, and has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." It was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book provides a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. The map which accompanies this edition, by Samuel Lewis, is the same map as that issued with the Philadelphia 1794 edition, with the same date of 1794. The frontispiece portrait was engraved by Enoch G. Gridley, and is pictured and described in Cunningham's THE IMAGE OF THOMAS JEFFERSON IN THE PUBLIC EYE.... Cunningham states: "Not all copies [of this edition] contain a signed state of the engraving, but the unsigned prints are otherwise identical to those that included 'Gridley sc.' inscribed in very small lettering immediately under the portrait." The portrait in the present copy is not "signed." This edition includes appendices containing Charles Thompson's notes on Jefferson's original text, his "Draught of a Fundamental Constitution for the Commonwealth of Virginia," "An Act for Establishing Religious Freedom," and the story of the "Murder of Logan's Family." An excellent copy of Jefferson's enduring work, in an edition also notable for the portrait and the map. HOWES J78. Noble E.

        [American Bookbinding]. Erasmi Colloquia selecta; or, the select colloquies of Erasmus: with an English translation, as literal as possible. Designed for the use of beginners in the Latin tongue. By John Clark

      Worcester, Mass.: Isaiah Thomas, Jun., 1801. First Worcester edition. 12mo. 190 pp. English and Latin in parallel columns. Original canvas binding (see below) over thin wooden boards ("scaleboards"). Faint pencilled inscription on first blank leaf (another apparently excised). Early ownership inscription of S. Chandler (dated Aug. 10, 1838) and with the bookplate of Seth Chandler. A very early use of canvas for bookbinding in America, preserved in exceptionally good condition. This particular type of cloth is known to have been used by Isaiah Thomas on books printed in his shop, for instance: the Princeton copy of Caleb Alexander's "A Grammatical System of the Grecian Language" (1796). In Princeton's "Hand Bookbinding" online exhibit their binding is praised as a "rarity in such good condition" although significant fraying can be observed along the front joint (certainly not present in our binding which survives in tight and fresh state). The present binding is further noteworthy in the characteristically American use of "scaleboards," a type of thin planed wooden boards that has been generating significant scholarly attention of late, most recently (and thoroughly) in Renee Wolcott's formidable work entitled "Splintered: The History, Structure, and Conservation of American Scaleboard Bindings" (Book and Paper Group Annual 32 [2013] 58-79, concluding with a bibliography of no less than 23 references). Wolcott explains: "Canvas was a relatively rare material for bookbinding prior to the introduction of impermeable, manufactured bookcloth in the 19th century, and its survival is always remarkable. Although the plain-weave canvas covering on a 1795 Latin textbook [likewise printed by Isaiah Thomas, and now at the Library Company] is seriously discolored, apparently due to the acidity of the wood used in the scaleboards, the cloth in this case has proved to be almost as durable as leather (figs. 12a, 12b). The cover is plain, the corners are lapped in the usual way, and the canvas was not tied down over the raised cords on the spine. The rounded, backed spine, however, is unique. The unusual canvas cover suggests that the book might have been bound for the bookseller rather than the purchaser, or that parents buying schoolbooks commonly selected the cheapest permanent binding available" (pp. 70-71). Canvas bindings of this sort originated in England in the third quarter of the 18th century, and were usually found on textbooks of the period. See also the pioneering article by D. Leighton, "Canvas and bookcloth: an essay on beginnings" in: The Library, 3rd series, no. 3 (1949), pp. 39-49. PROVENANCE: The owner of this book was almost certainly Seth Chandler (1806-1889) the Universalist minister, one of the leaders of the Restorationist Controversy within the denomination, minister of the First Parish Congregational Society (Unitarian) in Shirley, Massachusetts for forty-five years, and the author of the first significant history of that town.

        Tableau de l'Agriculture Toscane

      Chez J.J. Paschoud, Libraire, Geneve 1801 - First edition. Includes fold-out. Small contemporary bookplate and larger modern bookplate on front endpaper. xiv, 327 pp. 8vo. Patterned leather spine, orange morocco spine labels, gilt titles and rules, paper over boards. French text. Fold-out of engraved agricultural illustrations follows text. The first work by the historian and political economist who became known for his French and Italian histories. Simonde details his life on a small farm in Pescia, which his family bought after fleeing from political unrest in Geneva caused by the French Revolution. His particular expertise was in the cultivation of olives for olive oil, and grapes for wine, though this work also provides general information about techniques for growing fruit-bearing trees, vegetables, and grains.Two years after the revolution was over, he returned to Geneva and published the work there. He later wrote an economic treatise designed to explain and popularize the ideas in Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations, while also championing the idea of using existing wealth to produce happiness rather than merely attempting to increase wealth. His histories of France and Italy were the turning point in his writing career, and established him as a man of letters. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The numbers show a population of over 5 million, and almost 900,000 slaves. There is also information on the expenses related to building gun ships, ports and the sale of some government assets. Thomas Jefferson (1746-1836) was the third president of the United States. This speech to Congress was delivered toward the end of his first year in office, and was basically a state of the union address. However, because Jefferson didn't want to be viewed as a king, he had a clerk make the presentation. National Archives
