        George Washington

      1801. Mezzotint portrait, state II of 2, sheet size: 27 7/8 x 21 1/2 inches, image size: 26 3/8 x 20 inches. In good condition, trimmed within the plate mark and backed onto archival tissue, small repaired tears. A fine early American mezzotint of the 'Landsdowne Portrait" of the Father of the Nation This stunning image is based on James Heath's engraving after Gilbert Stuart's famous portrait of Washington. Stuart's painting, done in 1796, is known as the Lansdowne Portrait because it was a gift to the Marquis of Lansdowne, an English supporter of American independence, from Senator and Mrs. William Bingham of Pennsylvania. The painting was quickly reproduced by the British engraver James Heath without Stuart's consent, an act that infuriated Stuart who had hoped to control the rights to the engraving and thus garner some profit from the publication and sale of the print. Despite his condemnation, Heath's engraving established Stuart's painting as the official image of Washington and set a style for portraying Washington's successors in the White House. Edward Savage is considered one of the most important artists of the early Federal period in America. A self-taught painter and engraver, Savage was also the proprietor of a succession of galleries in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston, where he exhibited his own paintings and patriotic prints. This print is Edward Savage's masterly version of Heath's famous image. Hart describes a print by Savage that matches this mezzotint of Washington, with lettering, which according to Hart should read 'E. Savage Execu: td 1801'. The present example supports Hart's claim that in most copies of this print the date is barely visible. Cf. Cunningham Popular Images of the Presidency: From Washington to Lincoln pp.135-139; Hart Catalogue of Engraved Portraits of Washington 293; Stauffer ii, 2755cf. Wick George Washington an American Icon p.60-61.

His primary interest was in sense perception, and, while still a medical student, he had discovered the way in which the lens of the eye changes shape to focus on objects at differing distances.

      Hanover: By Moses Davis, 1801. Half title within funereal borders. Original printed self- wrappers, stitched. Light tanning, trimmed (but not affecting pagination or text). Overall in near fine condition. In a half morocco and cloth box. The second published work of Daniel Webster, preceded only by a 4th of July oration he delivered at Dartmouth in 1800, when he was a member of the junior class. That oration was also printed by Moses Davis in Hanover, and it appears to be more common than the present funeral speech, which is located in only ten copies by Shaw & Shoemaker and OCLC. Webster was only nineteen when he delivered the present address, but his performances in the Dartmouth College debating societies had already earned him a reputation as a powerful speaker. Webster and Ephraim Simonds were classmates, friends, and fellow members of Phi Beta Kappa. Webster's language is florid and a bit overly dramatic (in the style of the day), but also shows glimpses of the style that made him the most famous orator of his day. The final page of text contains the text of an ode, composed and set to music for Ephraim Simonds' funeral. Robert Remini says that while Webster gave several speeches during his Dartmouth days, this Simonds oration "was the most remarkable for its unaffected directness, compelling emotion, and strong religious feeling." A scarce and very attractive copy of this seminal Webster speech. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 1629. OCLC 6286761. Robert Remini, DANIEL WEBSTER: THE MAN AND HIS TIMES (New York, 1997), p.54. Clifford B. Clapp, "The Speeches of Daniel Webster" in THE PAPERS OF THE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA, Vol. 13, (1919), pp.3-63, especially pp.13-14.

      London, 1801. Half title. Quarto. Late nineteenth-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, minor wear to boards, corners repaired. Contemporary bookplate and later ownership inscription on front pastedown. Scattered foxing and toning. Very good. This classic of North American exploration describes the extraordinary travels of the author in northwest America in 1789, when he discovered the Mackenzie River, and in 1793, when he crossed the continent to the Pacific. Mackenzie also provides an excellent history of the fur trade in Canada as well as vocabularies of several Indian languages. The "Map of Mackenzie's track from Ft. Chipewyan to the Pacific Ocean in 1793" was a milestone and, as Wheat says, "at once questions began to be raised about the now patent inadequacies of all prior maps of the American Far West." A cornerstone in any collection of North American travel and exploration. HOWES M133. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 251. GRAFF 2630. HILL, p.187. LANDE 1317. PEEL 25. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 2384.

Hardcover. mm (). 4 p.l., 120 pp. Contemporary red straight-grain morocco, covers with gilt-ruled border, flat spine divided into panels by single gilt rule, gilt titling, turn-ins with decorative bead roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. WITH A PLEASING FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE HARBOR AND SEASIDE TOWN OF WHITBY. In an excellent brown morocco pull-off case by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for J. W. Robinson Company. With four engravings depicting scenes from "The Minstrel." Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of John Ashley Warre. Spine slightly and uniformly sunned to a darker red, joints and extremities a bit rubbed (though well masked with dye), paper faintly toned, light offsetting, occasional spotting or staining, but still quite a decent copy, the binding solid and lustrous, the text smooth and fresh, and the painting very well preserved. The very pleasing fore-edge painting here has depth and movement, from the fisherman on shore in the foreground to the cresting waves in the harbor and the ships bobbing in the distance. The ruins of the great abbey tower over the scene, and the lighthouse stands tall at the edge of the shore. The precipitous cliffs, rolling hills, and curving shoreline provide an undulant frame for the choppy sea. A Scottish poet and professor of moral philosophy, Beattie (1735-1803) is best remembered for the title poem here, an unfinished work in Spenserian stanzas that was first printed in 1771-74. As perhaps the first work in English that might properly be entitled "The Growth of a Poet's Mind," his "Minstrel" anticipates Wordsworth's "Prelude," and its emphasis on the great benefits of solitude represents an early manifestation of one of the key notions of Romanticism. Former owner John Ashley Warre (1787-1860) was a scion of the famous port-trading family and a long-serving member of Parliament for the Liberal Party.

        Systema Eleutheratorum secundum ordines, genera, species adiectis synonymis, locis, observationibus, descriptionibus

      Kiliae: Impensis Bibliopolii Academici Novi, 1801. Two volumes, thick octavo, neat library stamps to both titles, occasional early manuscript annotations; an excellent set in contemporary glazed paper boards, gilt, bumped. A particularly handsome set of the first work by Fabricius to incorporate the newly discovered species collected on the d'Entrecasteaux/Labillardiére voyage.An impressive 36 specimens noted here are from Australia alone, with specimens collected in each of their three main ports of call: the lower east coast of the mainland, the southern coast of western Australia, and Van Diemen's Land. Any number of insects were also collected in other Asian and Pacific locations on the voyage, marking this book as one of the earliest and most significant works of entomology to include Pacific specimens.D'Entrecasteaux had sailed with orders to search for La Perouse, but the voyage is now remembered chiefly for the important Australian and Pacific natural history that they collected, and particularly for the botanical specimens that returned to France. As this, and the following works by Fabricius attest, Labillardiére and his fellow natural historians were assiduous in collecting specimens of all varieties from major mammals right through to smaller insects. The insects noted here were 'collected by Labillardiére and Riche, botanists to the Expedition... which visited W. Australia and Tasmania. Most of these species are cited from Nova Cambria [that is, New South Wales] and Australasia, with one exception from Van Diemen's Land' (Anthony Musgrave).

        Gesammelte Nachrichten über die Belagerung von Gibraltar von 1779 bis 1783. (Titelblatt) - Deutsche Handschrift.

      Einbeck, Dezember 1801. 199 beidseitig in schwarzer Tinte beschriebene Blätter, auf gutem Schreibpapier. Pappband d. Zt. mit Grünschnitt. 21 x 17 cm. \"Gegenwärtige Nachschriften über die Belagerung von Gibraltar sind als eine gekürzte, hie und da veränderte Abschrift von den Briefen anzusehen, welche der Amtmann Friedrichs, der als Auditeur bei dem Sydowschen Regimente ein Augenzeuge von dieser Begebenheit war, in einigen Jahrgängen des hannöverschen Magazins herausgegeben hat. Man hat sich bemüht, dieselbe durch vorgefundene schriftliche Nachrichten, durch die Drinkwaterschen Auszüge (siehe das militärische Journal 4. Und 5. Stück von 1789 und 1790) und durch mehrere Auszüge aus andern Büchern zu ergänzen\" (Vorrede). - Die große Belagerung von Gibraltar von 1779 bis 1783 war der letzte vergebliche Versuch, die Stadt und Festung Gibraltar den Briten gewaltsam zu entreißen. Der Angriff Spaniens auf den Felsen war von der Hoffnung getragen, das Großbritannien durch den amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitskrieg dort zu viele Truppen gebunden habe und es damit eine leicht Beute werden würde; der britische Kommandeur George Eliott hatte allerdings vorausblickend die Anzahl der Geschütze deutlich erhöht und u. a. Zivilisten zur Bedienung trainiert. Unter den auf Gibraltar stationierten Truppen war auch eine Einheit aus dem Kurfürstentum Hannover unter dem Kommando von August de la Motte. Von Angehörigen dieser Einheit stammen die dramatischen Text aus der Zeit der Belagerung und der Abwehr der spanischen Armee, die hier in Abschriften gedruckter und wohl auch ungedruckter Berichte vorliegen. - Beiliegt der bekannte illustr. Einblattdruck: \"Prospect von Gibraltar mit seinen Werken, umliegenden Gegenden und ietzigen neuern Belagerungs-Anstalten, gez. vor Gibraltar im Jahre 1782, Daniel Berger, Berlin\", mit der seltenen, unten angefügten typographischen Beschreibung der gest.

L'enfant fut amené à Paris et présenté à la Société des observateurs de l'homme, fondée en 1799 par Sicard, Jauffret et de Maimieux. Il fut confié à Jean Itard, pionnier de l'oto-rhino-laryngologie, créateur de la première école française d’otologie et fondateur de l'otologie. Ce dernier tentera de pallier les déficiences linguistiques du jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron au travers d'une démarche éducative qui visera notamment à ouvrir socialement le jeune garçon, baptisé Victor. Le texte publié en 1801 forme le rapport enthousiasme d'Itard sur la méthode employée pour parvenir à éveiller Victor au monde humain, une méthode caractérisée de sensualiste et héritée des Lumières et notamment de Condillac, dont Itard se servait pour l'apprentissage des sourds et muets. Bien que cette tentative empiriste soit vouée à l'échec, l'entreprise d'Itard reste fondatrice et son ouvrage fondamentalement novateur. Imaginant un système pédagogique nouveau basé sur une interaction originale entre élève et éducateur et couplé d'une méthode d'observation basée sur des présupposés médicaux et philosophiques, cet ouvrage participa à faire d'Itard un personnage emblématique de la psychiatrie infantile. L'aventure entreprise par Itard, malgré la violente condamnation des premiers psychiatres français, Pinel et Esquirol, de Victor à un idiotisme insolvable, ouvre la voix à l'éducation des retardés mentaux. Bruno Bettelheim considèrera en 1967, dans La Forteresse vide, le rapport d'Itard sur le jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron comme la première prise en charge institutionnelle d'un autiste, et sa première véritable description. Bel exemplaire, propre. Norman, I, p. 418, n° 1144. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Red-bellied Macaw (L'Ara Macavouanne)

      Paris, 1801. Colour-printed stipple engraving, finished by hand, engraved by Bouquet, printed by Langlois. This print is from an apparently unrecorded issue of Levaillant's Perroquets published on large format paper (probably 'papier vélin colombier satiné'), with a scratch proof of the title and plate number, but otherwise avant-lettre. This issue is not recorded in any of the standard bibliographies. Jacques Barraband was the finest ornithological artist of his time. The son of a weaver at the Aubusson Factory, he is first mentioned as a pupil of Joseph Malaine (1745-1809), the eminent flower painter, and is known to have worked for both the Gobelin Factory and the porcelain factory of Sèvres. His most important work was undoubtedly the 300 or so drawings that he produced for François Levaillant's three great ornithological monographs, the greatest of which was the Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets (1801-1805).

        National Irrigation, or The Various Methods of Watering Meadows; Affording Means to Increase the Populations, Wealth, and Revenue of the Kingdom, by an Agricultural, Commercial, and General Economy in the Use of Water.

      London: J. and T. Carpenter. 1801 - London: J. and T. Carpenter, 1801. 8vo., xix + (I) + 427 + (1)pp., 7 engraved plates and two text figures, the plates and pages are remarkably clean with some pages stained at the bottom, in the middle of the book. The half-title is present, a few marks in pencil, old, probably original boards, backed in paper with handwritten, all page edges are uncut. A good large copy. First edition. Kress B.4464. Goldsmiths 18194. Rothamsted (1st ed.) p.127 (noting 6 plates). Perkins 1724. Fussell, III, pp.31-2. A curious book by an eccentric Anglo-American. William Tatham (1752-1819) was sent to America in 1769 to seek his fortune. He obtained a commission at the outbreak of the War of Independence and took part in campaigns against the Cherokees and Creeks and the siege of Yorktown. In 1784 he was admitted to the bar of Virginia, in 1787 elected a member of the state legislature of North Carolina and in 1795 he was dispatched to Spain as American envoy to settle some boundary disputes in Florida. After his return to England in 1796 he became superintendent of the London Docks at Wapping in 1801. In 1805 he returned to America in poor circumstances, had problems with alcohol and bizarrely committed suicide in February 1819 by stepping in front of a cannon at the moment of discharge. Perhaps the most interesting parts of Tatham's book on irrigation are the additional essays, including his Hints towards employing the vagrant and disorderly classes of the community in works of national irrigation, inland navigation and drainage; as a remuneration to society for the depredations they may have committed [pp.359-382], and his ingenious Plan for raising the supply of water, which is delivered from the mains to the several houses in Bedford Square for their use in household and culinary purposes, up to the roofs of the said houses; for retaining the said water in cisterns, formed in their respective roofs, so as to be ready at hand in case of fire; and for delivering fifty gallons thereof per day per house, in a pure transparent state, obtained by the use of a filtrating medium, resembling that by which nature acts in the clearest emission of her springs [pp. 382-395]. There is a fine engraved plate of the water filter.

In-8, plein veau porphyre de l'époque, dos lisse orné d'un riche décor de rosaces, filets et palettes dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin bordeaux, guirlande d'encadrement sur les plats, roulette sur les coupes et les chasses, tranches citron, (2) f., 236 p., 3 tableaux dépliants. Edition originale de cet ouvrage considéré comme l’un des ouvrages majeurs dans l’histoire de l'édification de la science économique. Analysant la question de l'incidence de l'impôt, Canard élabore une théorie de la valeur novatrice et une théorie générale de l'équilibre fondée sur le besoin et la concurrence. Mais l'originalité des "Principes" réside avant tout dans la formalisation mathématique des énoncés, faisant de Canard le précurseur de l'Ecole mathématique. Largement diffusé en France et en Europe, le livre fut incompris par certains de ses contemporains français - Say ou Blanqui lui reprochèrent l'usage des mathématiques - même si Cournot dut reconnaître qu'il avait constitué un point de départ à ses propres recherches.

Vol. VI-XIII with in original paper boards, old vellum rebacking of each volume. Free endpapers excised from several volumes. A few volumes also have reinforced gutter on titlepage. Otherwise a crisp, clean, untrimmed set. Very good. The first collected printing of the Journals of the United States Congress, known as the "Folwell Edition." In this set the first volume is present in the 1777 first collected edition of the first Journals of the Continental Congress. Prior to the issuing of Folwell's set, the Journals had appeared in more or less annual volumes (such as the first volume in the present set). Many of those original journals are virtually unobtainable. In 1799, Congress directed that Richard Folwell print 400 sets of the complete journals of the Continental Congress for the use of the Senate and the House of Representatives. This was accomplished during 1800 and 1801, reprinting the annual volumes comprising the proceedings of the Continental Congress from the two Congresses held prior to the Declaration of Independence, then for the duration of the Confederacy, through the adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. A vital record of the Revolutionary period. SABIN 15545. EVANS 15683, 38750 (through 1800).

        Map of Massachusetts proper compiled from Actual Surveys made by Order of the General Court, and under the inspection of agents of their appointment

      [Boston: B. & J. Loring, 1801. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, folded and mounted on linen. Publisher's paper label to verso, in good condition apart from some slight browning. Modern cloth chemise, within a morocco-backed cloth slipcase. A very rare and highly important early map of Massachusetts. The revised and much improved first "official" edition of the most important early map of Massachusetts. In three key ways, this edition is a great improvement over Osgood Carleton's 1798 original which was rejected for official sanction by the government of the Commonwealth. Firstly, the coastline and coastal islands have been more correctly rendered, largely due to the incorporation of information from the charts of Joseph Des Barres. Secondly, roads and streams that had been left incomplete in the earlier map were extended. Thirdly, some of the clutter of the 1798 map, engraved by Carleton's partner, John Norman, was removed, and the map is more attractive and informative, with a cleaner and crisper appearance. The history of the creation and publication of Carleton's map is interesting. There was a movement to create a state-sponsored map of Massachusetts as early as 1791. In 1795, after a failed attempt by the Massachusetts Historical Society, Osgood Carleton and John Norman signed a contract with the Commonwealth to create a state map based on surveys submitted by every town, with the entire map to be endorsed as to its quality by the state government. The map was produced in 1798, but it failed to win approval by the General Court which criticized Norman's engraving. The government asked Norman to redraw the map, although he had already printed 400 copies and went about marketing it without the official seal of approval from the Massachusetts government. Carleton, however, began to recompile the map and the firm of Callendar and Hill was contracted to engrave it. The present version of the map was approved by the General Court in 1801, and 500 copies were ordered to be printed. The map was published by B. & J. Loring in Boston, and offered (along with a companion map of Maine, which was then a constituent part of Massachusetts) at four dollars for a set, seven dollars if mounted on cloth with rollers, and eight dollars folded into cases. This copy of the map retains the publisher's original paper label, which forcefully asserts that this 1801 version of the Carleton map of Massachusetts, approved by the General Court, is "the only accurate one ever published of this state." The map is drawn on a scale of four miles to the inch, and gives a clear delineation of the boundaries and coastline of Massachusetts, and of the borders of each town in the state. The distance of each town from Boston and from their respective county seat is given, and major roads and streams are shown. Public and private institutions, including academies, meetinghouses, courthouses, etc., are located, as are topographical features such as mountains, ponds, rivers and streams. The cartouche, smaller in size and more attractive than that in the 1798 version, is still quite large, taking up much of the lower left corner of the map. It shows an Indian standing beside trees on a shoreline, with boats in the distant waters, and casks, anchors, nets, and a globe in the foreground.

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.

        A Chart of South Carolina and Georgia

      [Boston: William Norman, 1801. Copper-engraved sea chart, with an early ink manuscript notation at centre, in very good condition. A very rare and finely engraved sea chart from John Norman's 'American Pilot,' one of the earliest maritime maps of the Georgia and South Carolina coasts, here in the second of three states. This map was originally published as part of the first edition of John Norman's The American Pilot, 1791, and was preceded only by Mathew Clark's chart of 1790. The present second state, with "Shute's Folly" in the inset corrected to "Shutes Folly," first appeared in the very rare 1798 edition. The chart shows the area from the St. John's River, Florida, in the south, to John's Island, South Carolina, in the north. At the lower right is a large inset of Charleston Harbour. The manuscript notation, in a contemporary hand, lends a fascinating sense of life to the map. The line concludes with the note " Black Beard Point ," alluding to the fact that "Sappola Inlet," now referred to as Sapelo Sound, was one of the favourite hideouts of the infamous pirate Blackbeard (the alias of Edward Teach) during his reign of terror from 1716 to 1718. Blackbeard's nimble vessel Queen Anne's Revenge would hide in the inlet from patrolling British ships of the line that found these littoral waters too treacherous to chance. Blackbeard's presence in the area is immortalized by the designation of the Blackbeard Island National Wildlife Refuge, located at the northern part of Sapelo Island. The presented map was made in the years following the American Revolution, which had brought to an end Britain's leading role in the mapping of America. The task now fell to the American publishing industry, still in its infancy, but with first-hand access to the new surveys that were documenting the rapid growth of the nation. In particular, there was a need for nautical charts for use by the expanding New England commercial fleets. The first American marine atlas, Mathew Clark's A Complete Set of Charts of the Coast of America, was published in Boston in 1790. Two of Clark's charts had been engraved by John Norman, who was inspired to launch his own enterprise. In January 1790, Norman published a notice in the Boston Gazette stating he was currently engraving charts of all the coast of America on a large scale. These were assembled and published as The American Pilot , Boston, 1791. Norman's Pilot , the second American marine atlas, indeed the second American atlas of any kind, marked an advance over the earlier work of Mathew Clark. New editions of the Pilot appeared in 1792 and 1794, and after John Norman's death, his son, William, brought out editions in 1794, 1798, 1801, and 1803. Despite the seemingly large number of editions, The American Pilot is one of the rarest of all American atlases, and one of the very few published during the eighteenth century. Wheat and Brun (pps. 198-199) locate just ten complete copies for the first five editions: 1791 (Huntington, Harvard); 1792 (LC, Clements); 1794(1) (LC, JCB, Boston Public); 1794(2) (Yale); 1798 (LC, Boston Public). This example came from one of the rarest of all, the 1801 edition; not in the Library of Congress; unknown to Wheat & Brun and all other commentators except Tom Suarez Wheat & Brun, Maps & Charts Published in America before 1800 , 607; Suarez, Shedding the Veil, p. 164.
