         An answer to an address from Charles Brooke, wool-broker, to the electors of the Borough of Chippenham, by Henry Guy, clothier.

      Chippenham: printed and sold by J.M. Coombs 1802 - 8vo., 40pp., in a particularly good 20th century panelled calf binding. An excellent copy. First and only edition. This Answer> evidently followed closely on the civil action for a libel heard and determined at the Court of King's Bench on April 28th, 1802, before Mr. Justice Grose. Charles Brooke (1760-1833), 'an eminent wool-broker' in London, had maintained 'an irreproachable reputation', according to Thomas Erskine, his defence counsel, until Henry Guy's alleged libel. In the event, the jury found in favour of the defendant. The case seems to be still of some interest, not only as an example of alleged commercial libel, but also as a portrait of the international wool trade at the turn of the 19th century, in particular with Spain. The case and its ramifications are well analysed by Taylor & Thorne in The History of Parliament: House of Commons, 1790-1820>, III, p.262. 'The basis of Brooke's business was imported Spanish wool which he bought for clothiers on commission from Manuel de Torre, Spanish agent in London. It would seem, however, that - not alone in this - he also engaged in mercantile business on his own account under cover of partnership. His father's firm H.F. Brooke & Company of St. John's Bridge, Bristol, certainly shipped Spanish wool and Brooke did business with west of England clothiers, which connected him with Chippenham. In 1801 he canvassed the borough with corporation support on the 'independent' interest, which brought him into collision with the established clothiers' interest of the Fludyer family: by combining with the other leading interest in the borough, that of the Dawkins family, Brooke drove George Fludyer out of the field, but was opposed by the latter's business associate John Maitland. In October 1801 Brooke quarrelled with Maitland's leading supporter in the borough, Henry Guy, who on 12 Dec. 1801 circularized charges against Brooke of fraudulent dealings in Spanish wool and of conspiring to raise the price, the gist of his arguments being that Brooke had violated his broker's oath by transacting business on his own account. Brooke disparaged this as an election manoeuvre, but lost an action for libel against Guy, 28 Apr. 1802, in which he was defended by Thomas Erskine: while he was able to refute some of the allegations of fraud, the charge of professional malpractice stuck. In consequence Brooke, who was fined £500 by the City, gave up his brokerage, though in pamphlet warfare with Guy up to the eve of the election he argued, with legal advice from William Adam and William Draper Best, that even if fraud were proved, it did not constitute a perjury of his broker's oath, but merely forfeited his broker's bond. The affair did Brooke no great harm: it enabled him to engage in Business on his own account and to expand prodigiously.' Guy's final Answer> was evidently designed to rub Charles Brooke's nose in it.

         The Divina Commedia,

      London: Printed by A. Strahan for T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies,, 1802. consisting of the Inferno–Purgatorio–and Paradiso. Translated into English verse, with preliminary essay, notes, and illustrations, By the Rev. Henry Boyd. 3 volumes, octavo (230 x 141 mm). Near-contemporary red half calf, spines gilt-tooled in compartments, two coloured morocco title labels to each, purple cloth sides with triple gilt rule, marbled endpapers and edges. Engraved frontispiece. Spines a trifle sunned, covers somewhat scuffed and marked, glue residue to tails of spines from removed labels, some very light spotting to early and late leaves only and a little more to frontispiece as expected, but a sound and attractive set in very good condition. Contemporary bookseller's ticket of John Stacy, Bookseller, of Norwich, to front free endpaper of first volume; near contemporary Norfolk ink ownership inscription to each volume; loose bookplate of Francis Augustus Brooks, M.D. laid into the first volume; illustrated bookplates of Howard Murray, O.B.E., to front pastedowns in each volume; loose library plates designating the presentation from Murray to the Fraser Institute Free Public Library of Montreal. There are no library markings to the text. First edition of the first English version of the complete Divine Comedy to be published, which is greatly significant for "assisting to re-establish an audience for Dante, whose reputation had suffered a decline in the previous century" (ODNB). The translator Henry Boyd (1748/9–1832) was a Church of Ireland clergyman. He has stamped his own character on this text with a lengthy introductory preface (as well as a historical essay of his own to add to his translation of Leonardo Bruni's Life of Dante), in which he celebrates Dante as an original genius whose reputation had been unjustly diminished by unimaginative laws of criticism dominated by the French propensity to "cast a damp upon original invention". Interestingly, Boyd attempts to associate the resurgence of Dante with the contemporary rise of radical thought and politics "in this age of enlightened reason and adventurous discovery". Boyd had previously in 1785 published by subscription a two-volume translation of the Inferno only, alongside a specimen of the Orlando Furioso of Ariosto, and this in itself was only the second English translation of the Inferno. This first complete English Dante is scarce in commerce, with nine copies traced at auction.

Together with appropriate Tables of Weights, Measures, &c.

      London: Printed for Robert Scholey, and Scatcherd & Letterman, By Thomas Davison, 1802 - 2 volumes, octavo (232 x 146 mm). Contemporary black straight-grain morocco, spines divided in six compartments by low bands with decorative gilt rolls, gilt-lettered direct in two compartments, others gilt, sides with wide gilt borders enclosing a thinner border in blind, gilt centrepieces incorporating a dove and the Tetragrammaton, decorative gilt roll to turn-ins, drab olive endpapers, gilt edges. Corners lightly bumped, marginal browning to titles, very occasional light foxing (chiefly marginal), small ink stain affecting a few leaves towards upper outer corner at end of vol. I but not the text, overall a very good copy in an attractive contemporary binding. Frontispiece and 5 plates engraved by Daniel Taylor after H. Richter, all on thin paper mounted on thicker wove paper; engraved title pages. First edition thus, from the library of Thomas Robert Malthus's daughter-in-law, with gift inscriptions at the head of the titles "Sophia M. F. Otter from her Grandfather 1823". Sophia Marian Frances Otter was daughter of William Otter, bishop of Chichester. As an undergraduate Otter befriended Malthus and accompanied him on a tour of northern Europe as he gathered supporting evidence for his Essay on Population, while Otter occupied himself with botanizing (he was later a fellow of the Linnean Society). Otter's memoir of Malthus, prefixed to the second edition of The Principles of Political Economy (1836), is an important source for Malthus's life. In the same year Sophia united the two families when she married Henry Malthus, only son and heir of the economist. The illustrations, dated "April 1 1802" or "June 1 1802" at the foot, are by Henry James Richter (1772–1857), friend of Thomas Stothard and William Blake. This appears to be the first edition under this title, and is the only such copy we can trace. Copac lists two copies of a later edition of the same title, both dated May 1st 1809 at the foot of the frontispiece, and notes that BLC and Herbert also give 1809 as date of publication. OCLC gives six locations, again all dated 1809. In this edition some plates have the imprint of E. Harding, 98 Pall Mall, the year before his appointment as librarian to Queen Charlotte. The Advertisement at the front of volume 1 has at its foot the instruction: "The bookbinder is desired to press the book well, but not to beat it."

Edition Originale, dédiée à Chaptal et imprimée à Nîmes, de cet ouvrage du médecin montpelliérain Jean Baptiste Baumes (1756-1828) dans lequel il tente, suivant le chemin ouvert par Paracelse au 17e siècle, de fonder un nouveau système de pathologie basé sur les découvertes chimiques révolutionnaires de la deuxième moitié du 18e siècle. A ce titre il rend notamment hommage dans cet ouvrage à Lavoisier, "homme immortel, honneur de la chimie pneumatique". "Baumes est devenu célèbre par les tentatives qu'il fit pour établir une théorie pathologique fondée sur la chimie, lorsque Fourcroy se servait de tout l'ascendant de son éloquence pour faire de la médecine une section de la science des affinités. C'est dans le 'Fondement de la science méthodique des maladies' que sont consignées les vues chimiques de Baumes sur les maladies qu'il divise en oxigénèses, calorinèses, etc." (Quérard).

From such a writer, however, we have, in his future productions, every thing to expect; and we consider the above-mentioned novel as the first emanation of extraordinary talents'. 'William Templeton is no doubt an imaginary character, but from the accuracy with which the author describes the wretchedness of a country company, and the whimsical vicissitudes which it is the lot of a strolling actor to experience, he has, very probably, been personally engaged in many of the adventures recorded in this history.'

         Expedition to Egypt. Memorandum respecting the Expedition to Egypt

      1802 - Expedition to Egypt. Memorandum respecting the Expedition to Egypt (Alexandria), manuscript, 52pp., lacks 8pp., folds, browned, folio, 10th April 1802. This 14 quadruple page (apart form single page 8) manuscript is a criticism of the “Expedition to Egypt” by Sir Ralph Abercrombie on “two heads”:    1) “That it was rash and unwarranted to undertake the Enterprise with an Army greatly inferior in number to that of the Enemy ” “ betrays a criminal ignorance of the then situation and strength of the French in Egypt ” “disregard of the honor [sic] and Lives of the British Force ”    2) “The second is that the Expence [sic] of the Expedition has been enormous and so much beyond expectation as to counterbalance in the Minds of some, even the Lustre it reflects upon the British Arms and the solid advantages derived from its final success to the best and most substantial interests of the Country” The manuscript mentions and repeats some of the correspondence in the orders received by Sir Ralph Abercromby on the 6th October 1800, the number of French forces and British; capture of French Frigates (the Egyptienne, the Justice and the Regeneice – not captured; The Africaine – captured). British forces are listed as follows in the “Regular Monthly Return” Cavalry --------------1,415 Artillery-----------------785 Infantry-------------17,754 Pioneers---------------382 Seaman and Marines To be landed------1,000                           21,336 The Batt’n of the 27th Foot Which had been driven Into Lisbon and had not been rejoined---800                            22,136 Colonel Anstruther is mentioned early in the manuscript as are various Regiments in coming to the number of British troops deployed. Mention is also made of their need to be acclimatised. Narrative is given over to the French troops and the number incapacitated because of the term of their residence in Egypt and their succumbing to disease and injury from the “hard fight”. It mentions 1,000 blinded (?) in the French army. The author is careful to ensure that there is no “ungracious intention” to criticise the British Army in Egypt regarding “Landing on the 8th March, at the Attack on the 13th, in the Battle of the 21st and every subsequent occasion”. He states that “the Name Abercromby [is] among the greatest of British Heroes and place the Conquest of Egypt among the first of those greatest achievements”. In arriving at numbers for the French army mention is made of intelligence from Colonel Anstruther, Sir Sydney Smith, Lord Elgin and “above all after he had personally examined and questioned at Malta the celebrated Tallien (?) ” Page 8 of this manuscript is a single page with hand-writing on one side. Page 9 is an “Extract of Letter to Sir Abercromby 6th October 1800” other extracts continue to the end of the fourfold of page 11. Page 12 and 13 – assumed 8pp are missing. Page 14 continues “blame has been inputed to the Enemy in their Conduct of the subsequent part of the Campaign .that after the 21st the French Troops could not be prevailed upon to  risk another Engagement; that their Generals consider the Country as lost ” and focuses latterly on the cost of the expedition. Written on paper which is watermarked with “Britannia” and the letter “D” with the date beneath “1797”. The rear of the document states “Memorandum respecting the Expedition to Egypt 10 April 1802”. Initials at the base – which are the author’s no doubt. Folded the document size is 12 ½ inches tall by 8 inches wide approximately. Unfolded 12 ½ by 15 ½ inches. A unique document. Some tears to the folds and edges otherwise in very good condition.   Condition Report Externally See above and photos. Internally See photos Publisher: see above. Publication Date: 1802

      Paris, 1793-1802, - in-folio à l'italienne, 15 planches gravées, demi-toile (rel. modeste du XIXe). Manque au dos. Une des plus rares suite iconographiques sur la Révolution française. Elle a été réalisé d'après les dessins de Monnet, gravée par Helman. "Cette collection, qu'on a parfois confondu avec les Tableaux historiques, n'a pas eu originairement de titre imprimé ou gravé (). Elle ne devait d'abord comprendre que douze estampes dont la liste de trouve dans le Journal général de littérature de thermidor an VI. Les trois dernières planches ne parurent que de 1800 à 1802 (). Le seul exemplaire actuellement connu du tirage original figure dans un portefeuille de la collection Pixérécourt (). si le tirage original est des plus rares, on rencontre couramment en revanche celui de Décrouan (1838)."

         The Divina Commedia:

      London: by A. Strahan; for T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies,, 1802. consisting of the Inferno–Purgatorio–and Paradiso. Translated into English verse, with preliminary essay, notes, and illustrations, By the Rev. Henry Boyd, chaplain to the right honourable the Lord Viscount Charleville. In three volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (228 x 142 mm). Superbly rebound to contemporary style in full mottled calf, smooth spines divided in compartments with metope-and-pentaglyph rolls, large gilt ornaments in four compartments, green morocco labels, blue sprinkled edges. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Dante by Thomas Stothard. First half-title additionally signed in blue ink by Nanny Moore, April 2, 1850, and in pencil by Hugh Stuart Moore, 1876. Gathering D in vol. I and half-title of vol. III spotted, small ink stain at foot of frontispiece trailing across lower edge but not spreading into text block, a very good copy. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the first half-title "To Joseph Abbot Esqr. as a trifling mark of sincere esteem and friendship from the translator" and signed by Anne J. Boyd on each half-title. The translator Henry Boyd (1748/9–1832), a Church of Ireland clergyman, was the first to publish an English translation of the complete Divine Comedy. "The edition's value was in assisting to re-establish an audience for Dante, whose reputation had suffered a decline in the previous century. It was dedicated to Viscount Charleville, whose chaplain Boyd was until the Irish rising induced him to resign his post" (ODNB). Boyd had previously in 1785 published by subscription a two-volume translation of the Inferno only, with a specimen of the Orlando Furioso of Ariosto, which in itself was only the second English version of the Inferno. Boyd's translation was the version used as captions for John Flaxman's Compositions from the divine poem of Dante Alighieri (1807).

         Alexander Hamilton Writes a Female Friend in Puerto Rico, Sympathizing with the Perilous Condition of Haiti as French Control of the Island Deteriorates

      New York City 1802 - Autograph Letter Signed with Initials, to Marie Jeanne Ledoux Caradeux de la Caye, Countess of Caradeux. November 1802. New York City. 1 p., 7 3/4 x 12 5/8 in. Several words obscured by ink stain. "The events of St Domingo chagrine us. [T]he disappointment to your views in that quarter contributes to render us extremely sensible to the disasters of that Colony. When will this disagreeable business end? But when would our interrogations finish, if we should attempt to unravel the very intricate and extraordinary plots in which the affairs of the whole world are embroiled at the present inexplicable conjuncture? We have nothing for it but patience and resignation, and to make the best of what we have without being over solicitous to ameliorate our conditions. This is now completely my philosophy." Historical BackgroundInspired by the French Revolution, the Haitian Revolution began in 1791 when the slaves of the French colony of Saint Domingue (modern Haiti) revolted, killed 4,000 whites, and destroyed more than a thousand plantations. By 1792, they controlled a third of the island, and many whites, including the Caradeux, fled.Hoping to take advantage of the unrest to seize a valuable colony, Spain, which controlled the rest of the island of Hispaniola, and Great Britain invaded. Both Great Britain and Spain supplied the rebels with food and arms. However, they also restored slavery wherever they went, so the majority of Haitians hated them. In response, French commissioners freed the slaves of Saint Domingue, and the National Convention confirmed their action. François-Dominique Toussaint Louverture, a self-educated former domestic slave, joined the Spanish army in opposition to the French planters. In 1794, however, Toussaint Louverture suddenly joined the French and expelled the Spanish from Saint Domingue. He urged the surviving French whites to stay and help him rebuild Saint Domingue. Most of the British army was killed by yellow fever, and they finally withdrew in 1798.By 1800, when Toussaint captured Jacmel, and the French mulatto commander André Rigaud fled, Toussaint effectively ruled Saint Domingue as a dictator. He then led an invasion of Santo Domingo, the Spanish portion of the island of Hispaniola, and freed the slaves there in January 1801. At this time, although he did not sever his ties with France, Toussaint was the de facto ruler of the entire island of Hispaniola. In 1801, he issued a constitution declaring himself governor for life and called for a sovereign black state. In response, Napoleon Bonaparte sent a French force, led by his brother-in-law Charles Leclerc, to reassert French rule and to restore slavery. Leclerc landed at Le Cap in February 1802 and attempted to lure Toussaint to him. When that failed, he declared Toussaint to be an outlaw and rebel.Leclerc divided his forces into four columns, one of which was commanded by General Donatien de Rochambeau, a white supremacist and supporter of slavery who hated the Haitians. At a narrow ravine in the mountains, Toussaint attempted to stop Rochambeau's column, but the French prevailed with heavy losses after hours of brutal combat. A Haitian army in the fort of Crête-à-Pierrot, under the command of Jean-Jacques Dessalines, successfully repulsed repeated French assaults until they were forced to withdraw because of lack of supplies. The arrival of the rainy season brought yellow fever, which killed thousands of French troops.In April 1802, Haitian commander Henri Christophe defected with much of his army to the French. Two weeks later, Toussaint agreed to integrate his remaining troops into the French army in exchange for his freedom. He was later seized by the French and sent to France, where he died in prison in April 1803.Resistance continued in the countryside, and the French army employed mass executions, including gassing in the holds of ships, an invention of General Rochambeau. As it became clear that the . (See website for full description)

      Paris, Imprimerie de Giguet et Michaud, an XI - 1802, - in-8, [2] ff. n. ch., 332 pp., broché sous couverture d'attente de papier bleu.Qqs rousseurs. Edition originale de cet ouvrage aussi rare que curieux : Jean-Antoine Leclerc dit de Milfort (1752-1821), engagé volontaire à douze ans comme enfant de troupe, émigra en 1775 en Amérique du Nord, sans doute pour échapper aux conséquences d'un duel. Là, il réussit à s'introduire en 1776 au sein de la nation indienne des Creeks (Alabama actuel), apprenant leur langue, adoptant leurs coutumes, et intégré parmi leurs guerriers. C'est à ce titre qu'il intervint dans la Guerre d'indépendance, louvoyant entre Anglais, colons et Espagnols. Revenu en France sous le Directoire, qui le promut général de brigade en 1796, il essaya vainement de faire valoir ses vues sur la constitution d'un domaine colonial français en Louisiane tant sous le Directoire que sous le Consulat : l'ouvrage publié en 1802 avait pour but de convaincre Bonaparte des possibilités offertes par ces vastes territoires et les populations amérindiennes ralliables à la cause française.

The print also shows the distinctive layered structure of the hail stone,With the margins trimmed off, removing the thin-line border at the head but without affecting the texts, image or the other borders. Otherwise in very good condition.
