        NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA. WITH AN APPENDIX

      New York, 1801. Contemporary calf; rebacked, spine gilt. Corners worn and repaired. Light toning and scattered foxing. A good, solid copy. The self-styled "third American edition," although there were actually five American editions published before this one. NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime. It 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 supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. The portrait of Jefferson was engraved by John Scoles, and is pictured and described in Cunningham's THE IMAGE OF THOMAS JEFFERSON IN THE PUBLIC EYE.... This is only the second American edition of Jefferson's NOTES... with a map. The map which accompanies this copy is the Samuel Lewis map of Virginia, printed in New York in 1794. This is the same map which accompanies the 1794 New York edition, the first American edition of the NOTES... to have a map.

        The Works;

      Philadelphia: Wm. W. Woodward,, 1801. Consisting of His Life, Written by Himself. Together with Essays, Humorous, Moral, and Literary. Chiefly in the manner of the Spectator. To which is added, not in any other Edition, An Examination, before the British House of Lords, respecting the Stamp-Act. Duodecimo (169 x 98 mm). Bound by Taffin-Lefort in red crushed morocco, raised bands, titles and decorations to compartments gilt, floral frames to boards gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers.

Later American edition of this collection of Franklin's memoir and miscellaneous essays. Originally published in London in 1793, the first American edition was published in New York a year later. Discussing the first British edition, P. L. Ford writes that "owing to the non-appearance of Temple Franklin's edition [of his grandfather's writings], this re-translation of the autobiography and the collection of essays has become the 'popular' and one might almost say 'chap-book' edition of Franklin's 'Life and Writings'" (Ford, pp. 205-7).

        Proceedings of the General Society of the Cincinnati, with the original institution of the Order.

      Philadelphia: Pr. by John Ormrod 8vo. 82 pp.. 1801 At its founding, the Society or Order of the Cincinnati was composed of the regular army officers who had fought at some length and in specific prominent theaters for American independence, equality, and freedom; future members were to be drawn from among their sons only. By the time that the Society published its second constitution, the Order had changed its membership rules to admit militia and other officers and then their heirs — diluting its elite nature though not renouncing it. This publication demonstrates that compositional change among many others, as it traces the Society via its own documents from its founding at the "Cantonment of the American Army, on Hudson's River, 10th May, 1783," through the incorporation of the Pennsylvania branch, to the death of Gen. Washington. Included here are the by-laws of the Pennsylvania chapter. Sewn, as issued. Front wrapper missing, rear wrapper present. A few spots of waterstaining. Uncut copy. New protective paper corset provided and the whole housed in a cloth clam shell case with a leather spine label lettered in gilt. A very good copy.

        COMMUNICATIONS CONCERNING THE AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: BEING AN AUXILIARY TO A REPORT MADE BY WILLIAM STRICKLAND... [bound with:] COMMUNICATIONS CONCERNING THE AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE OF AMERICA: CONTAINING OBSERVATIONS ON THE COMMERCE OF SPAIN WITH HER AMERICAN COLONIES IN TIME OF WAR. [bound with:] AUXILIARY REMARKS ON AN ESSAY ON THE 'COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGES OF OXEN FOR TILLAGE IN COMPETITION WITH HORSES.'

      London, 1801. Antique half calf and marbled boards. Very clean, near fine. A sammelband of three rare works by William Tatham, English geographer and engineer who left Cumberland for Virginia to seek his fortune in 1769. In 1776, he moved to the Watauga settlement in the Tennessee country and fought on the American side in the Revolutionary War until 1781. Later, he wrote a topographical study of Virginia, then returned to England to publish a number of works on agricultural and engineering subjects (including the three works here). In the first of these works, COMMUNICATIONS CONCERNING THE AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA..., Tatham critiques Strickland by noting the "mistaken suspicion" that "everything written concerning America must be directed to stimulate emigration to that country." Tatham uses his extensive topographical knowledge and many years of living and working in America to provide a detailed and wide-ranging report on the state of American agriculture. The work includes sections on "the moral Evil of Slavery," the American cultivation of clover seed, tobacco, wheat, hemp, and the best use of horses and cattle. It concludes with a two- page appendix titled "Mr. Jefferson's Opinion upon the Establishment of an American naval force." This text is taken from Jefferson's NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA and begins with the rallying cry, "The sea is the field on which we should meet an European enemy." It continues with an assessment of how an improved Navy could be funded. Rare, with only six institutional copies recorded. The second work, COMMUNICATIONS CONCERNING THE AGRICULTURE AND COMMERCE OF AMERICA: CONTAINING OBSERVATIONS ON THE COMMERCE OF SPAIN WITH HER AMERICAN COLONIES IN TIME OF WAR, is an examination of American agricultural commerce with regard to Spain, "written by a Spanish gentleman in Philadelphia." Latham is credited as the editor on the titlepage, with both Howes and Sabin attributing authorship to Carlos Martinez de Yrujo y Tacon. Martizez de Yrujo was the Spanish minister to the United States from 1796 to 1807, and was a well-respected figure among the diplomatic corps in Philadelphia and Washington. His work here includes two papers on Louisiana, and one specifically devoted to Havana, Cuba. Rare. OCLC only records eight copies. An especially interesting feature of the second work is found in Tatham's "An Account of the Country of Ouachita. Transmitted from a Foreign Traveller at New Orleans, in 1795," found at pp.99-110. In this section, Tathamn records impressions of this "Foreign Traveller," as well as another account by a "French Emigrant," on lands west of the Mississippi River that we now know of as Arkansas and Texas. These accounts touch on the mysterious ancient inhabitants who once lived here, the abundance of food, including maize, rice, potatoes, pumpkins, and other foods that "come to great perfection here," the trees, the wildlife, the minerals, and the fish that swell the rivers. Of particular Texas interest is mention on pp. 105-106 of the Red River, and of the ease of buying cattle in the Ouachita area, because of its "proximity to Taxas [sic], a province of Mexico abounding with these kinds of cattle for want of purchasers." This is an extraordinarily early mention of Texas in the English language, and until this time seemingly unnoticed in the scholarship, even by Streeter. The third work, AUXILIARY REMARKS ON AN ESSAY ON THE "COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGES OF OXEN FOR TILLAGE IN COMPETITION WITH HORSES," compares the labor benefits of oxen and horses. Not in ESTC. Very rare, with only two copies in OCLC.

        Differenz des Fichteschen und Schellingschen Systems der Philosophie (Difference Between Fichte?s and Schelling?s Systems of Philosophy).

      Jena: Seidler, 1801. First edition of Hegel's first book. Small octavo, period patterned paper boards, leather spine. Some wear to the extremities. Rare. In 1801 Hegel came to Jena with the encouragement of his old friend Schelling, who held the position of professor at the University there. Hegel secured a position at the University as a Privatdozent (unsalaried lecturer) after submitting a Habilitationsschrift (dissertation) on the orbits of the planets. Later in the year Hegel's first book, The Difference Between Fichte's and Schelling's Systems of Philosophy, was completed. He lectured on "Logic and Metaphysics" and gave joint lectures with Schelling on an "Introduction to the Idea and Limits of True Philosophy" and held a "Philosophical Disputorium". In 1802 Schelling and Hegel founded a journal, the Kritische Journal der Philosophie ("Critical Journal of Philosophy"), to which they each contributed pieces until the collaboration was ended when Schelling left for Würzburg in 1803. Hegel attempted to show how Fichte's Science of Knowledge was an advance from the position of Kant in the Critique of Pure Reason, and how Schelling had made a further advance from the position of Fichte. Hegel finds the idealism of Fichte too abstractly subjective and formalistic, and he tries to show how Schelling's philosophy of nature is the remedy for these weaknesses. But the most important philosophical content of the essay is probably to be found in his general introduction to these critical efforts where he deals with a number of problems about philosophical method in a way which is of general interest to philosophers, and not merely interesting to those who accept the Hegelian "dialectic method" which grew out of these first beginnings. Finally, the Difference essay is important in the development of "Nature-Philosophy" as a movement in the history of science.

        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, 1801. Dissected and mounted on contemporary linen. In good condition, with light foxing. Original printed publisher's paper label affixed to the verso. In a half morocco and cloth box. The revised, much improved, and first "official" edition of the most important early map of Massachusetts. This edition is a great improvement over Osgood Carleton's 1798 original (which was rejected for official sanction by the government of the Commonwealth) in several ways. First, the coastline and coastal islands have been more correctly rendered, largely due to the fact that information from the charts of Joseph Des Barres was incorporated. Secondly, roads and streams that had been left incomplete in the earlier map were extended. Lastly, 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 the lines cleaner and crisper. The history of the creation and publication of Carleton's map is quite 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, 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, but 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. This version of the map - the present version - was approved by the General Court in 1801, and 500 copies of the map 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 under Massachusetts' control until 1820) at four dollars for a set, seven dollars if mounted on cloth with rollers, and eight dollars if 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 the state 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. A very rare, important, and early map of Massachusetts.

        VOYAGES FROM MONTREAL, ON THE RIVER ST. LAURENCE, 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.

      London. 1801. - [4],viii,cxxxii,412,[2]pp. plus three folding maps. 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.

        JOURNALS OF CONGRESS: CONTAINING THEIR PROCEEDINGS [FROM SEPTEMBER 5, 1774 TO NOVEMBER 3, 1788]

      Philadelphia, 1801. Modern antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Bookplate of Edward Everett on front pastedown of each volume. Some light tanning and soiling, but generally clean internally. Very good. The first collected printing of the Journals of the United States Congress, known as the "Folwell Edition." Prior to the issuing of Folwell's set, the Journals had appeared in more or less annual volumes. 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. This set has the important provenance of Elbridge Gerry, fifth Vice President of the United States, and then to distinguished American statesman Edward Everett. Everett's bookplate is in each volume, and he has written on the front fly leaf of the first volume: "This copy of the Journals of the Continental Congress belonged to Elbridge Gerry, Vice-President of the United States with President Madison in his second term. E.E." Gerry served in the Continental Congress and was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was an early and vigorous advocate of American Independence, and played a crucial role in the formation of the new United States government, insisting on a bill of rights being added to the new Constitution. "Gerry warned that the Constitution would not be ratified without a bill of rights, and he proved to be right. Massachusetts accepted the document, but only with the strong recommendation that a bill of rights be added. Several other states followed suit, and the Constitution was ratified but only with these provisos. Gerry staunchly supported the new government, helped to frame the Bill of Rights, and served as congressman from 1789 to 1793" - ANB. His name is perhaps most remembered, however ignominiously, in connection with the term "gerrymandering." In his second term as governor of Massachusetts, Gerry redrew district lines to consolidate his party's control in the state senate. "The shape of one electoral district on the map resembled a salamander, and one wit promptly dubbed it a 'Gerrymander.' Hence, the term used today when redistricting results in a concentration of the strength of one political party and a weakening of its opponent's strength" - ANB. Though this was not necessarily a new practice, the name stuck. Gerry ran on the ticket with President Madison two years later, during Madison's second term as president, and died in office in 1814. Edward Everett attended Harvard, then became the first American to study in Europe and obtain a Ph.D. He served in the U.S. House of Representatives, as governor of Massachusetts for four years in 1835-39, then U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain, President of Harvard, Secretary of State, and Senator from Massachusetts. Ironically, his career ended as the long-winded keynote speaker at Gettysburg, preceding Abraham Lincoln's Address with two hours of oratory. He died a year later. An important set, with the significant provenance of two of the most important statesmen from Massachusetts in the first half of the 19th century.

Publisher's brown marbled boards. "Daudin's most extensive herpetological work, and the one on which his reputation rests, was the 'Histoire Naturelle, Générale et Particulière des Reptiles' (1801-1803), in eight volumes with 100 plates . This book, part of the so-called Sonnini edition of Buffon's encyclopedia, was the standard herpetological reference of its day . Daudin stated that he had examined over 1100 specimens belonging to 517 species, triple the number catalogued by Count Lacepède only 25 years before, his genera are well defined ." (Adler, Contributions to the History of Herpetolgy p. 20). "Of all the herpetological treatises to emerge in France immediately following the French Revolution, the most comprehensive was Daudin's. The great voyages of discovery of the 15th to 18th centuries had brought to Europe enormous masses of new plant and animal species. and into most of the 19th century, Paris was the center for herpetological studies" (S. Haines, Slithy Toves. Illustrated classic Herpetological books at the University of Kansas p. 72). François Marie Daudin (1774-1804) died at a very early age. An uncut copy.Nissen ZBI, 1045.

      - Altkolorierter Kupferstich b. Società Calcografia in Venedig, dat. 1801, 50,5 x 67 Bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar! - Diese sehr seltene Karte gehört zu einem nie beendetem Projekt der "Società Calcografia", ein Zusammenschluß der beiden venezianischen Verleger des 18. Jahrhundert Antonio Zatta und Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. - Weitere Karten die uns aus dem Projekt bekannt sind tragen auch den Namen "à Venise Chez la Societe Chalcographique". - Das Projekt ist nie beendet worden und die Karten in keiner uns bekannten Bibliographie aufgeführt. - Oben rechts in Manuskript "N. XII." - Die Karte zeigt Nordwestfrankreich mit den genannten Départements in dem Gebiet der Südküste Englands mit den Kanalinseln, Normandie und Bretagne. - Am linken Rand altkolorierte Titelkartusche; unten links Erklärungen und Meilenzeiger. - Extrem seltener Einblattdruck! This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. The term Società Calcografica has been deduced from the map of the world, which is part of the collection and bears in the lower cartouche the French writing "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique". As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has ever been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini’s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 "Atlas Universelle" and from the plates of Antonio Zatta’s "Nuovo Atlante" published in 1796. Santini’s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died in 1811.

        Histoire Naturelle des Poissons, avec les figures dessinées d'après nature. Ouvrage classé par ordres, genres et espèces, d'après le systême de Linné; avec les caractères génériques; par René Richard Castel.

      - Paris, Chez Deterville, An IX (1801). 10 volumes. 12mo (133 x 80mm). With 160 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt ornamented spines with 2 gilt-lettered green labels, sides with gilt borderlines, gilt edges. The small 12mo edition of Bloch's famous folio work on fishes, the most sumptuous and beautifully produced work on the subject. The present edition forms vols. 32-41 of the 'Suite à Buffon'. The plates are after Jacques De Sève, one of the most famous natural history artists of the period. "Toutes les planches ont été dessinées de nouveau par J.E. De Sève, dont le talent est connu, et gravées avec un soin particulier sous sa direction" (From the Introduction). Marcus Elieser Bloch (1723-1799) was born in Ansbach and practiced as a physician in Berlin. He devoted himself to natural history, and wrote several works of which this is his most famous. He is considered the most important ichthyologist of the 18th century and his collection of some 1500 fishes from all over the world was the largest collection of fishes of his time.

BEING A COMPLETE COLLECTION OF THE MOST APPROVED MAPS EXTANT...INCLUDING ALL THE TRACKS AND NEW DISCOVERIES OF THE BRITISH CIRCUMNAVIGATORS BIRON [sic], WALLIS, CARTERET, CAPTAIN JAMES COOK, VANCOUVER, PEROUSE, &c. &c. The Fifth Edition

      London, 1801. Thick folio. Contemporary tree calf, gilt, spine gilt, blue morocco label. Marbled endpapers. Fine. A very fine copy of the fifth edition of this important atlas of the world, including a newly revised chart of world and nine other maps that were not available in the early editions of this spectacular work. Eight editions of this work were issued on an almost annual basis from 1796 through until 1807. The publishers constantly changed and improved the atlas in an effort to outdo not only their competitors, but also to improve on the previous edition. Maps were added (the first edition included only sixty-six map sheets), maps were replaced (the present work includes two maps dated 1800, including "A New Chart of the World" dated Nov. 25, 1800), and maps were updated (eight maps are dated 1799). The scale of some of the maps is truly spectacular: this atlas contains fifteen maps that if joined would form large-scale wall maps. "Asia and its Islands" (on three folding sheets, ranging from the Arctic regions in the north, down through Russia, Indonesia and Australia) would measure approximately 56 x 46 inches if assembled. The remaining maps on two folding sheets would all be approximately 40 x 46 inches if joined, including three maps of American interest: "A new map of the whole continent of America"; "A new map of North America, with the West India Islands"; and "A map of South America." The remaining areas that are covered by large-scale maps are "A general map of the World"; England and Wales; Scotland; Ireland; the Netherlands; Germany; Hindoostan; Bengal, Bahar, etc.; Delhi, Agrah, Oude, and Allahabad. This atlas was originally created by Thomas Kitchin. Sayer and Bennett had published the work in 1773, and Laurie and Whittle took over the Sayer business in 1794. They subsequently enlarged the work, adding maps and changing the name from the GENERAL ATLAS to A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS. The maps are based on the work of a variety of mapmakers and surveyors: Thomas Kitchin, Thomas Jefferys, John Rocque, Robert Campbell, John Armstrong, John Roberts, L.S. d'Arcy Delarochette, James Rennell, Andrew Dury, Thomas Pownall, and Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville. Also included is the information gathered as a result of the important Pacific voyages of Captain James Cook, George Vancouver, and Jean François Galaup de La Pérouse.

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).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. („Humboldt").

      Cartagena (Kolumbien), 30. III. 1801. - 2 SS. Gr.-4to. Unbekannter Brief von seiner Reise in Amerika an den namentlich nicht genannten Kaufmann Luis de la Cuesta in Havanna, dem er Nachricht von seiner Ankunft in Cartagena gibt. Am 5. Juni 1799 war Humboldt mit dem Botaniker Aimé Bonpland zu seiner Forschungsreise nach Lateinamerika aufgebrochen. Nach seiner Ankunft in Venezuela (16. Juli 1799) hatte er die Umgebung von Cumaná erforscht und eine Reise auf dem Orinoco (März bis Juni 1800) unternommen. Von Venezuela hatte sich Humboldt nach Kuba begeben, wo er sich vom 19. Dezember 1800 bis 5. März 1801 aufgehalten hatte und Gast der Familie de la Cuesta gewesen war. Von Kuba war er nach Kolumbien gereist und am 30. März 1801 in Cartagena an Land gegangen. „Le Courier, mon respectable ami, part le même jour de notre arrivée en ce port, de sorte que j’aime de profiter de cette occasion pour Vous donner un signe de vie et pour Vous réitérer les sentimens de reconnaissance et d’attachement que Vos bontés m’ont inspiré. Nous sommes sain et sauf, mais la Navigation était détestable. 21 jours de traversée. D’abord nous perdîmes quelques jours en entrant à la Trinité (où j’ai été très très bien accueilli) puis des calmes sans fin et puis une recalada à sotto viento dans le Golfe du Darien parce que le Pilote ne compta pas sur les Courant et se mefiant de mon Chronometre qui, tel que la suite a prouvé, ne manquant pas d’une mille. Sur la Cote nous eumes des brizes très fortes et une mer terrible. Nous étions toujours sou l’eau. Nous entrames dans le Rio Sinu pays sauvage qui porte encore cette empreinte d’une terre vierge et intacte. Que cette Amérique meridionale est belle. Je croyais revoir les forets du Rio Negro et du Casiquiare. Le Domingo de Ramos, justement le même jour que je fis naufrage dans l’Orinoco, nous fumes en grand danger devant le port de Carthagene. Un coup de vent nous submergea et el timon no governava mas. Je crois presque que je ne pourrai pas resister au plaisir d’aller par S[anta] Fe [de Bogota] et Popayan. On dit que les occasions de Panama sont très rares. Oserais-je Vous prier de vouloir bien faire passer l’incluse à mon frere par la voye de Hambourg ou du Nord Amerique [.]. Bonpland Vous salue de tout son coeur. Nos respects à Mad. Votre digne épouse, le bon Mr. Ascarate, Mr. de Santa-Maria, le Cte Orelly [.]". - Eine Woche später setzten Humboldt und Bonpland die Reise fort; die weiteren Reisestationen waren Bogota (Juli – September 1801), Quito (Januar – Juni 1802), Lima (Oktober – Dezember 1802), Guayaquil (Januar – Februar 1803), Mexiko-Stadt (April 1803 – Januar 1804), Havanna (März – April 1804) und Philadelphia (Mai – Juni 1804). Am 3. August 1804 betraten er und Bonpland nach fünf Jahren in Bordeaux wieder europäischen Boden. - Briefe von Humboldts Amerika-Reise sind von größter Seltenheit. - Etwas gebräunt und fleckig, kleine Randschäden.

        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. Ansicht. Gesamtgr.: 42 x 32 cm. - Einband des Manuskripts bestoßen, Textbll. teils gebräunt. Der Einblattdruck mehrfach gefaltet, etwas fleckig und am Rand mit einigen kürzeren Einrissen.

        A Voyage round the World. Performed in the Years 1785, 1786, 1787, 1788, abridged from the Original French Journal ? which was lately published by M. Milet-Mureau ? To which are added, A Voyage from Manilla to California by Don Antonio Maurelle and an Abstract of the Voyage and Discoveries of the late Capt. G. Vancouver

      Boston: Printed for Joseph Bumpstead and sold by Him ... by Thomas and Andrews, E. and S. Larkin, Wm. P. and L. Blake, W. Pelham and C. Bingham, 1801. First American edition in condensed form of these three travels. La Pérouse was first published in English in 1785, Maurelle's circa 1780 and Vancouver's work in 1798. 12mo. Contemporary tree sheep, red morocco gilt label. Some rubbing of extremities, small chip at top of upper joint, lower edge of upper cover chipped for about 1 1/2 inches, some staining and marginal browning of text and endpapers (front free endpapers frayed). With the notation "Foster Social Library 90" on title and stamp of "Foster Manton Library" on a few leaves. Even as described, a good copy of these three travels. In a brown cloth open end case, leather tipped. First American edition in condensed form of these three travels. La Pérouse was first published in English in 1785, Maurelle's circa 1780 and Vancouver's work in 1798. 12mo. The text is based on the 1798 Edinburgh abridgement. The Hill copy includes a map but this was added later. Although merely a precis, this work also includes the first American appearance of Vancouver's voyage in print. The three accounts condensed in this text are all important accounts of the explorations of the Pacific Northwest. La Pérouse's being the earliest "visit of a foreigner to the missionary establishments in Upper California" (Howes), Maurelle's being the only contemporary account of the earliest Spanish expeditions to Alaska and Vancouver's explorations of the Pacific Northwest are among the most important and best known. With Jay's treaty of 1794 requiring the removal by the British from the Northwestern posts by 1796 the way was opened for western expansion. The editor notes in his introduction that the three authors of these works were first and foremost navigators and that it is this aspect of their works on which he concentrated. La Perouse voyage sought to build on Cook's efforts to discover a North-West Passage. Like Cook, he failed to return from the voyage, although in his case due to shipwreck off Vanikoro.

        TALES OF WONDER

      London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. for the Author, 1801. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. An Omnibus of the Ominous, in Animated and Elegant Etruscan Calf. 260 x 159 mm (10 1/4 x 6 1/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary calf in the Etruscan style, possibly by Edwards of Halifax, each cover with a gilt floral spray border (unusual for this style of binding) surrounding a terra cotta and deep burnt orange frame with palmettes stamped in black and blind, this frame enclosing a panel diced and dotted in blind and with gilt cornerpieces and a central medallion featuring an incised monochrome mythological painting; double raised bands flanking gilt pentaglyph and metope roll, gilt-ruled spine compartments with open gilt dots and classical ornaments in blind, turn-ins with Greek key gilt roll, marbled edges (neatly rebacked, using most of the original spines, hinges reinforced with matching paper in first volume and matching cloth in second). Front pastedown with the bookplate of "E. L."; front free endpaper with the bookplate of Harry H. Blum. Lowndes II, 1353. Central images on the covers of volume II somewhat indistinct, a few leaves with faint spots, otherwise excellent, the carefully restored binding still retaining much of its original impressiveness, and the text very crisp and clean. This is an appealing Etruscan calf binding that may be (or is at least derived from) the work of Edwards of Halifax, offered here as the animated adornment for a fresh copy of the two-volume first appearance of "Monk" Lewis' famous and fascinating wicked stew of nightmares in verse. Matthew Gregory Lewis (1775-1818) was an infamous author of lurid Gothic literature, his most successful (and notorious) novel being "The Monk" (1796), an instant classic that bestowed his nickname. Our "hobgoblin repast" (as Lewis characterized "Tales of Wonder") is comprised of 60 chilling narratives including imitations, translations, and original pieces written by Goethe, Bürger, William Taylor of Norwich, John Leyden, Robert Southey, Henry Bunbury, a young Walter Scott (who contributed five pieces), and Lewis himself. As a suggestion of how horrific the works of our author were considered by his contemporaries, Lord Byron wrote of "Wonder-working Lewis, Monk or Bard, who fain wouldst make Parnassus a churchyard; Even Satan's self with thee might dread to dwell, And in thy skull discern a deeper hell." ("English Bards and Scotch Reviewers" 1809) Featuring a very elegant oval vignette on each cover, our impressively bound copy of this omnibus of the ominous was formerly in the possession of Harry H. Blum, Chicago department store owner and noted book enthusiast whose collection was sold at Sotheby's in 1982.
