Includes detailed accounts of the battles and travels, with much on the collusion between the British and the Indians, Spanish intrigues, etc. "[T]he MEMOIRS is one of the most fascinating and harrowing narratives of the early nineteenth century. Phelps and his family were members of a party led by Phineas Lyman to settle on the Yazoo River" - Graff. HOWES H300, "b." GRAFF 1816. STREETER SALE 1528 (this copy). CLARK I:287. SABIN 30829.

        MÉMOIRE OU COU-D'OEIL RAPIDE SUR MES DIFÉRENS VOYAGES ET MON SÉJOUR DANS LA NATION CRËCK

      Paris, 1802. Half title. Contemporary half calf and marbled boards, gilt. Spine ends and corners worn. Edges and portions of the marbled boards chewed or abraded. 19th-century bookplate on front pastedown, modern bookplate on rear pastedown. Small burn hole on titlepage, minor foxing, some marginal dampstaining. Good. A remarkable account of a Frenchman's travels and adventures among the Creek Indians in the Mississippi Valley in the late 1770s and early 1780s. Some of the details in this narrative are sufficiently extraordinary that various commentators have questioned Milfort's veracity. "There are, however, corroborative circumstances which confirm his statements, and induce us to give a fair degree of credence to his narrative. At the time of his arrival among the Creeks, a half-breed named McGillivray, had obtained so great an influence over them by his talent for organization, that he had actually acquired the rank of head chief. Milfort was received with great cordiality; married his Indian sister, and in a short time was made commander of the warriors of the nation. He led them against both the Spaniards and the Americans, and by his aid the Indians defeated the forces of each in several skirmishes" - Field. "The truth is that Milfort was a hopeless liar; and as a result his book is one of the most interesting and curious books of French travel in America in the eighteenth century....His book is often hostile to the colonists. Certain descriptions of life among the Indians and frontiersmen are interesting. But what confidence can be placed in a man who was capable of describing how he, in command of six thousand Indians, had defeated George Rogers Clark and an army of ten thousand regulars!" - Monaghan. "It would take more time than I have so far been able to give to guess whether or not it is fiction" - Streeter. This book is dedicated to Napoleon; Milfort signs himself in print on the titlepage: "Tastanégy ou grand Chef de guerre de la nation Crëck." The Siebert copy in 1999 was the first to have appeared at auction since the Streeter sale in 1967.

        Karl Heinrich MÖLLER (1802 Berlin 1882) Studienblatt, Signatur Schadow & Berger

      - Karl Heinrich MÖLLER (1802 Berlin 1882) Studienblatt, mit Signatur von G. Schadow & D. Berger -- Technik: -- Bleistift auf Papier, unten mit dem Stempel der Berliner Akademie, datiert 1819, unterschrieben von Johann Gottfried Schadow und Daniel Berger als Direktor bzw. Vice-Direktor der Akademie: "Carl Heinrich Möller Bildhauer Berlin den 17ten October 1819" und "Auf diese Zeichnung, und wegen sonst bewiesenen Fleißes, hat die Königl. Akademie der Künste dem Carl Heinr. Möller die kleine silberne Preis-Medaille zuerkannt. G Schadow Direktor. D. Berger Vice Director". -- Maße: -- 31,0 x 44,5 cm -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt gut, im Rand minimal staubfleckig und mit kleineren Randeinrissen (alle professionell geschlossen und hinterlegt). -- Beschreibung: -- 1696 vollzog Kurfürst Friedrich III. die Stiftung einer Akademie in Berlin nach dem Vorbild der Pariser Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts. Das Bedürfnis nach den neuen Ausbildungswegen im Bereich der bildenden Kunst außerhalb der Lehre bei einem Meister war damals in Europa enorm. Allein in Deutschland folgten auf die Gründung der Berliner Schule die Akademien in Dresden, Düsseldorf, München, Kassel, Karlsruhe, Weimar und Stuttgart. Die Organisation der Ausbildung zeichnete sich durch rigorose Regeln aus und orientierte sich an festgeschriebenen Vorbildern. Alleine im Zeichnen bestand der Unterricht aus dem Skizzieren nach dem lebenden Modell, nach Gipsen, nach Zeichnungen berühmter alter Meister und nach Kupferstichen, die in speziellen, alleine für diese Zwecke gefertigten Vorlagensammlungen den Zeichenschülern zur Verfügung standen. Hinzu kam der Malunterricht, der aus Historien-, Landschaft-, Porträt-, Stillleben-, Genre- und Tiermalerei bestand. Außerdem Anatomie-, Perspektive-, Architektur-, Geometrieunter-richt, elementarer Kunst- und Kompositionsunterricht sowie Bildhauerei. Die Leistungen wurden mit Auszeichnungen und Stipen-dien belohnt, die ebenfalls einer strengen Vergabehierarchie folgten. Als ihm die silberne Preis-Medaille der Berliner Akademie verliehen wurde, war Karl Heinrich Möller gerade 17 Jahre alt. Die Aufnahmeprüfungen hatte er da bereits hinter sich, einige Jahre des strengen akademischen Lernbetriebs ebenfalls. Das Studienblatt mit Akanthus dürfte im Rahmen des Zeichenunterrichts nach antiken Vorbildern entstanden sein. Die Auszeichnung des Talents des Karl Heinrich Möllers durch Schadow und seinen Vizedirektor Daniel Berger sollte bald Früchte tragen. Als Schöpfer u. a. einer Pallas Athene, einer Marmorstatue auf der Berliner Schlossbrücke, ist er bis heute im Stadtbild präsent. --

        MEMOIRS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, SO FAR AS IT RELATED TO THE STATES OF NORTH AND SOUTH CAROLINA, AND GEORGIA

      New York, 1802. Portrait in first volume. Contemporary calf, spines gilt, leather labels. First volume expertly rebacked with original backstrip laid down, gilt leather label; second volume with modern calf backstrip in matching style, gilt leather label. Boards a bit shelfworn. Early ownership signature on verso of frontispiece in first volume; institutional ink stamp on titlepage of second volume and a handful of text leaves. Text tanned, some foxing. Good. A scarce work, and one of the most valuable firsthand narratives of the American Revolution in the South. At the outbreak of the Revolution, Moultrie was a politician and an officer in the South Carolina colonial regiment (where he had risen to prominence during the Cherokee War). He was eventually promoted to the position of brigadier-general in the Continental Army. Moultrie fought in several important southern battles, including the defense of Fort Sullivan in 1776, and helped lead the defense of Charleston from the British before his forces were finally overcome in 1780. He was taken prisoner and held for more than a year, after which the British tried to bring him to their side by offering him a command in Jamaica. "Of great value for the history of the Revolution in South Carolina and Georgia" - DAB. "The author's position as Governor of South Carolina, afforded him ample facilities to consult original authorities, and the result of his researches is a good book" - Sabin. "One of the most interesting of the Revolutionary narratives" - Larned.

        History of the British Expedition to Egypt;

      London: T. Egerton,, 1802. to which is subjoined, a Sketch of the Present State of that Country and its Means of Defence. Quarto (287 x 221 mm). Contemporary red straight-grain morocco, gilt-banded spine, gilt roll tool border on sides enclosing single-line gilt panel with corner rosettes, gilt roll tool turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece of Sir Ralph Abercromby by Meyer after Hoppner, handcoloured folding map of the western branch of the Nile (Cairo to Rosetta), map of the battle of Alexandria (units handcoloured), handcoloured map of the skirmish near Rahmanie, 2 folding letterpress tables. Old dampstain to frontispiece and title page (causing discolouration), occasional thumbing, closed-tear in margin of Alexandria map. First edition, a very good wide-margined copy in a lovely period binding. A popular first-hand account of the British expedition to wrest Egypt from French control, written by Sir Robert Thomas Wilson (1777-1849), who served under the expedition's leader, Sir Ralph Abercromby. An interesting association copy, with the contemporary ownership inscription on a preliminary blank of "G. Bosville"; this would appear to be Lieutenant-General Godfrey Bosville Macdonald, 3rd Baron Macdonald of Slate (1775-1832), who legally changed his name to Godfrey Bosville (1814) and then to Godfrey Bosville Macdonald (1824). He served in the Low Countries, West Indies, Cape of Good Hope and the Peninsular, where Wilson also served but, it would appear, not at the same time. Bosville's brother, Thomas, married Wilson's sister Fanny in 1793: "My sister Fanny had in the year 1793 married Colonel Bosville of the Coldstream Guards, brother of Mr. Bosville of Thorpe Hall and of Lady Macdonald... Obliged a week after he had married my sister to embark with his regiment for Holland, he was soon afterwards killed in the action of Lincelles [17 August 1793 in the Flanders Campaign of the War of the First Coalition], where the Guards acquired great credit. No officer in the corps was more esteemed; and though 6 feet 4 inches in height, he was, from his corresponding symmetry of form, considered one of the handsomest men in Europe [a footnote mentions that:] his height occasioned his death, for a musket-ball struck him in the head" (Life of General Sir Robert Wilson... from Autobiographical Memoirs, London 1862, p. 53). "[Wilson] landed at Abu Qir Bay on 7 March 1801, and took part in the action of the 13th and in the battle of Alexandria on the 21st. Upon Abercromby's death Major-General (later Lord) Hutchinson succeeded him and employed Wilson on several missions. In July Wilson entered Cairo with Hutchinson, and was at the siege of Alexandria in August and its capitulation on the 25th. He left Egypt on 11 September and returned to England via Malta and Toulon, arriving at the end of December. For his services in Egypt he was made a knight of the order of the Crescent of Turkey. In 1802 Wilson published The History of the British Expedition to Egypt, which went through several editions. The work derived especial popularity from its charges of cruelty against Napoleon, towards both his prisoners at Jaffa and his own soldiers at Cairo. Napoleon complained to the British government and, receiving no satisfaction, ordered Colonel Sebastiani to issue a counter-report" (ODNB).

        Travels through the Southern Provinces of the Russian Empire, in the Years 1793 and 1794, in 2 volumes, complete.

      London: printed by A. Strahan for Longman and Rees, 1802-1803. First edition.. Occasional marginal spotting or foxing to some text pages, two of the folding maps at the rear show stronger marginal foxing, the fine hand-colored and plain plates are quite bright and clean; the original calf on the front and rear covers shows some rubbing and shading; overall, a tight copy in very good condition.. Pp. xxiii, (1, errata) 552; xxx, (1, errata), 523; with 51 engraved and aquatint plates (most of which are hand-colored), 4 folding engraved maps, 28 hand-colored aquatint vignettes. Contemporary speckled calf-leather, rebacked preserving original spines with red and black gilt-lettered labels, 4to (275 x 217 mm). This is the first edition in English. It was translated from the original German entitled "Reise durch verschiedene Provinzen des Russischen Reichs in einem ausfuhrlichen Auszuge" published in 1778. There is a scientific flair to Pallas' accounts as the author was trained as a botanist and zoologist. This well-illustrated work documents the author's "travels from St. Petersburg eastwards, along the Volga, to Astrakhan, the Caspian Sea, thence to the Caucasus Mountains, the Crimea, and back to St. Petersburg. Pallas covers the ethnology, costumes, flora, fauna, geology, topography and commerce of the southern provinces of Russia" (Abbey Travel 222). Cox, (volume 1, p. 199) observes that "Pallas left St. Petersburg in 1768 and spent six full years investigating various districts of Siberia such as the Urals, the Caspian, Tobolsk, Lake Baikal and the lower Volga. His reports on the geology, flora, fauna and indigenous inhabitants are of great scientific value." Finally, Tooley (357, p.289-291) called the work "an extremely charming colour plate book ... It deserves a place in every colour plate collection for its numerous attractive coloured vignettes, an unusual feature." Armorial bookplate of Margaret D. Stephens. Inscribed to "Joe Frank Payne, M.D." from P.H.P.T.  in memory of their safe trip to Russia in May 1879.  Joseph Frank Payne was a physician and medical historian who was sent to Russia in 1879 by the British government to investigate an epidemic of bubonic plague.  Name stamp of former owner in Chinese on the title page of both volumes.

        DESCRIPTION D'UNE OREILLE DE CHARRUE, OFFRANT LE MOINS DE RESISTANCE POSSIBLE, ET DONT L'EXECUTION EST AUSSI FACILE QUE CERTAINE. [Contained in:] ANNALES DU MUSEUM NATIONAL D'HISTOIRE NATURELLE. Quatrieme cahier

      Paris, 1802. Original blue printed paper wrappers. A few chips to spine. Minor soiling. Light dampstaining to inner upper corner of each plate. Very good. Untrimmed. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case. Thomas Jefferson's article on the design of his moldboard plow, one of his most important and enduring contributions to agricultural technology. First published in 1799 in the TRANSACTIONS of the American Philosophical Society, the article was reprinted in this French publication in 1802. The accompanying plate shows the illustration of figures for constructing the plow. Jefferson, who had an abiding interest in the technological improvement of farming and agriculture, determined to build a plow that would glide through the earth with as little resistance as possible. He built his first moldboard plow in 1794, and after several years of use, was convinced of its ease of use and construction, resulting in this article. Its publication here, during his presidency, illustrates Jefferson's ongoing ties to France stemming from his service as U.S. ambassador.

Signed by Author(s) 46x 62cm ( 18" x 25"), printed withhand-written entries, vellum, with large circular seal attached to deedwith ribbon, docket on verso, mounted on stiff card backing andprofessionally framed with glass on both sides to display both the deed,docket and both sides of the seal, plain wooden frame (82x 94cm), a fineexample of an early Ontario land grant displayed in museum quality, veryrare. In my experience Lands Grants from this period with the sealintact are very scarce. In addition, these documents prior to 1810, arevery rare. I only remember seeing any of these once previously; aboutthirty five years ago in the offices of Joseph Patrick Books, Toronto.The area in the Bay of Quinte was settled in the early spring of 1794 bydisbanded soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, Rogers' Corps. The granteemarried the daughter of one of the officers, Ensign David Fraser. JoshuaBooth (1759-1813), a miller, was one of first elected members of theUpper Canadian Parliament assembled in Newark in 1792 and served as aCaptain in the Hastings Militia. "Died at Ernestown, on Saturday, Oct.31, 1813, suddenly, Joshua Booth, Esq., aged 54 years. He was one of theoldest settlers in that place, and ever retained the character of arespectable citizen. Left a widow and ten children." [Canniff: Settlementof Upper Canada, 1869]. The deed has been endorsed and signed by theLieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, Peter Hunter, who held the positionfrom 1799 to 1805. His military responsibilities as commander-in-chiefof the forces in Canada necessitated his often absence from York andgovernment was left in the hands of executive councillors (believed tobe the origination of the "Family Compact"). .

        AN ACCOUNT OF A GEOGRAPHICAL AND ASTRONOMICAL EXPEDITION TO THE NORTHERN PARTS OF RUSSIA, FOR ASCERTAINING THE DEGREES OF LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE OF THE MOUTH OF THE RIVER KOVIMA; OF THE WHOLE COAST OF THE TSHUTSKI, TO EAST CAPE; AND OF THE ISLANDS IN THE EASTERN OCEAN, STRETCHING TO THE AMERICAN COAST. PERFORMED...BY COMMODORE JOSEPH BILLINGS, IN THE YEARS 1785, &c. TO 1794

      London, 1802. Half title. Quarto. Original paper-covered boards, rebacked with original paper backstrip laid down. A small stain at the very bottom edge of a few leaves and plates, but overall very clean and fresh internally. A very handsome copy, in original condition, untrimmed. In a cloth chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. "My object has been to travel with my eyes open, and to relate what I have seen in the simple language of truth" - Martin Sauer in the preface (p. xiv). Sauer, an Englishman who served on the expedition as "private secretary and translator," here provides a largely firsthand account of the expedition under Joseph Billings undertaken between 1785 and 1794 to map and describe the farthest eastern reaches of the Russian empire, from Kamchatka in the southwest, eastwards through the Aleutians, then north to the Bering Strait and the coast of Alaska. The work includes a detailed description of the voyage, of the natives encountered and their customs, including (in the appendix) vocabularies of the Yukagir, Yakut, Tungoose, Kamchatka, Aleutian, and Kodiak languages. "This is the first account in English of the first major exploring expedition sent out by the Russians to the Frozen Ocean and the north Pacific after Bering's second expedition of 1741" - Streeter. The fine large chart was made by Aaron Arrowsmith from Sauer's notes and Captain Billings' astronomical observations and offers the most accurate map to date of the region. This map is ably complemented by William Alexander's spectacular plates showing the peoples, settlements, and topography of the region.

        Histoire naturelle des fourmis et recueil de memoires et d'observations sur les abeilles, les araignées, les faucheurs et autres insectes

      Paris: Théophile Barrois père, 1802. one table a little frayed;. Octavo, 12 hand-coloured plates and 2 folding tables, an excellent copy in contemporary quarter calf, gilt. First edition: the rare hand-coloured edition with, among much of Pacific interest, two Australian "Bull Dog" ants figured for the first time on the handsome engraved plates.Pierre André Latreille (1762-1833) had entered the Paris Museum in 1799, and became Professor of Entomology on the death of Lamarck. He went on to publish a great number of important entomological books and articles, including several relating to other French voyages to the Pacific, and contributing the volume on insects to Cuvier's revolutionary Règne Animal of 1817. A memoir of Latreille, with a portrait, was published in Sir William Jardine's Naturalist's Library for 1841.The present work is mainly, although not exclusively, a study of ants, with minor sections on bees and arachnids. Not only is Latreille's monograph one of the most significant early works on the species, but is of great significance because Formica gulosa and Formica forficata, both Australian species, are actually figured for the first time: after Roemer's Genera Insectorum, this is only the second work to include illustrations of Australian insects. Both of the specimens are included on plate VIII (pictured here).For insects collected on the d'Entrecasteaux voyage, Latreille's work is preceded only by Fabricius's Systema Eleutheatorum (previous item), and there were two later Fabricius titles of 1803 and 1804 which also included significant notices relating to this important Pacific voyage. The only other contemporary notice of insects from the d'Entrecasteaux was a notice by Lamarck in the journal of the Annales du Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle for 1804.

        Tinted miniature profile engraving of Col. William Duane, 2 5/8 x 2 1/2 inches [plate mark] on a larger sheet (6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches)

      Miles Saint-Memin and the Neoclassical Profile Portrait in America 277: "Although the engraving was made in 1802, the version with the inscription 'Col. William Duane' must date after 1808, when Duane became a lieutenant colonel in the United States Army; he also held the rank of colonel from 1813 to 1815. Duane helped Benjamin Franklin Bache publish the Philadelphia Aurora, the principal voice of the Jeffersonian Republicans. His paper was responsible for stemming the tide of war against france in the late 1790s and contributed greatly to Thomas Jefferson's election in 1800."

        PASSAIC FALLS IN THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY

      London, 1802. Top margin slightly ragged, with slight paper loss not affecting image, else a handsome copy with contemporary color. This view is one of a series of four views executed by the British artist, Alexander Robertson, during his visit to the United States in 1798, engraved in London by Francis Jukes. The other views show the Hudson, New York, and Mount Vernon. Deák notes that Passaic Falls was "one of the major natural wonders in America that beckoned early artists" and praises the view, which shows a lone fisherman in the foreground, dwarfed by the vertical walls of stone next to the falls, with the rushing torrent in the background. One of the earliest New Jersey views.

        The Federalist, On the New Constitution, Second Edition

      1802. The Last Edition Published in Hamilton's Lifetime, And the First Edition to Identify the Authors [Hamilton, Alexander (1755 or 57-1804)], [Madison, James (1751-1836)]. [Jay, John Jay (1745-1829)]. The Federalist, On the New Constitution. By Publius. Written in 1788. To Which is Added, Pacificus, On the Proclamation of Neutrality. Written in 1793. Likewise, The Federal Constitution, With All the Amendments. Revised and Corrected. New York: George F. Hopkins, 1802. Two volumes. viii, 317, [1]; v, [3], 351 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Contemporary tree sheep, gilt rules to boards, expertly rebacked retaining original spine with gilt fillets, ornaments and lettering pieces, hinges, corners and a few scuffs carefully mended. Light rubbing and a few minor nicks to boards. Moderate toning to text, light foxing and faint dampstaining to margins in a few places. Early owner signatures to front free endpapers and title pages, interiors otherwise clean. A handsome copy of scarce edition of a fundamental work. $12,500. * Second edition, "Revised and Corrected." For more than two centuries, this landmark work has influenced our understanding of the U.S. Constitution and the government and nature of the United States. Written to encourage ratification of the proposed constitution by New York State, it was seen almost immediately as the most compelling commentary on the most radical form of government the world had seen. Most of the essays that comprise this work appeared originally under the collective pseudonym "Publius" in New York newspapers and journals from October 27, 1787 to early June 1788. (Most scholars agree that 51 of the essays were written by Hamilton, 29 Madison and 5 by Jay.) The first edition was published by the M'Lean brothers as a two-volume work in March and May 1788. The second edition is significant because its preface establishes Hamilton, Madison and Jay as the authors and discusses the extent of their contributions. Published fourteen years after the U.S. Constitution's ratification and two years before Hamilton's death, it also includes the text of the U.S. Constitution with the first eleven amendments and Hamilton's "Pacificus" essays, which defended Washington's 1793 proclamation of neutrality during the Anglo-French War.

        A Treatise on Obligations, Considered in a Moral and Legal View

      Translated from the French of Pothier [by François Xavier Martin.] Newbern, N.C.: Martin & Ogden, 1802. 1st edition in English. (Shaw and Shoemaker, Early American Imprints, 2917; J.G. Marvin, Legal Bibliography, 548.) Two volumes in one. Original leather binding. xii, 364 pp.; and x, 315, (1) pp. Lacking 8 early leaves, but priced accordingly. Evidently a binding error, with no sign the leaves were ever bound in. They comprise 16 numbered pages, from 17 to 32. Old ink notation on p. 16 noting the flaw. (The missing leaves are supplied in facsimile in a separate marbled folder.) This rare edition was the earliest translation of Traité des Obligations (Paris, 1761) by the great French jurist and scholar Robert Joseph Pothier, 1699-1772. An important influence on American and British contract law and an essential legal text of the 19th century. "It is the most perfect book of law that ever issued from the hand of man; and not only a good book of law, but an excellent book on morals; a work of all countries, of all nations," in the estimation of Pothier's biographer, André Dupin. François Xavier Martin, 1762-1846, a native of France and an attorney, was both the translator and printer. Martin emigrated to North Carolina during the American Revolution, established a printing business, studied law, and later became known as the father of Louisiana jurisprudence. His 1802 translation of A Treatise on Obligations in America preceded by four years an edition published in England. That translation by William David Evans (London, 1806) was "not always to be relied upon" due to Evans' imperfect knowledge of French law. (Marvin bibliography.) Good antiquarian condition. 8vo, approx. 8.25 by 5.25 inches. Two volumes bound together as one. Separate title pages and pagination; 8 leaves (i.e., 16 numbered pages) lacking in the first volume, as noted above. Table of contents and errata page in each volume. Full sheep leather binding of the period. General wear, rubbing and scuffing. Front outer joint cracked, rear joint cracked at the extremities but both covers still well-attached. Inner hinges sound. Spine label lacking, but "Pothier on Obligations" lettering still visible. Text block firm and tight. Text generally clean, with typical age-toning and only occasional foxing, staining. Brief pencil notes at the bottom of the first text page. Intermittent ink notations, mainly old hand-corrections from the errata pages. Two excisions from the first title page (on either side of "on" in the title), probably to remove the signature of the original owner. $4.00 price in ink is written beside. The same price is in pencil on the front pastedown. (***$4 was the original price in 1802, according to Martin's bibliographer, Edward Larocque Tinker.) Another faint, early signature is on the front pastedown (possibly the surname Calkin or Calkins.) More recently owned by J.T. [James Teller] Schoolcraft, 1855-1937, an attorney, prosecutor, and former mayor of Schenectady, NY. A loose sheet signed by Schoolcraft is laid into the front of the book. A solid example overall of the landmark Newbern (aka New Bern) edition of 1802. An important American translation that introduced Pothier's work on contracts to an English speaking audience for the first time. A desirable example in the original binding, despite the omission of 8 of the 351 leaves. A truly rare book that is seldom offered for sale. .

        A treatise on the culture and management of fruit trees; in which a new method of pruning and training is fully described

      London: printed by Nicols and Son for T.N. Longman [et al.]. 1802. "First edition, 4to, pp. viii, 371, [1], plus 6pp. ads, 13 folding engraved plates; original blue paper-covered boards neatly rebacked, extremities a bit rubbed with repair to one corner of the front board, otherwise a very good copy. Forsyth (1737-1804), for whom the forsythia was named, was superintendent of the Royal Gardens at St. James and Kensington. One of the most useful and original sections of the work is Forsyth's discussion of the diseases of fruit and forest trees, and methods for prevention and cure. The success of the work was immediate, and it reached seven editions by 1824."

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. 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.

        Voyage de la Propontide et du Pont-Euxin.

      Paris, Dentu, 1800-1802. - 8vo. 2 vols. XII, 168 pp. (4), (169)-416 pp. With 6 folding engr. maps. Contemp. marbled calf with gilt cover borders and double labels to gilt spines. Marbled endpapers. Variant issue of the first edition, probably the second issue altogether. "Le Chevalier had assisted Choiseul-Gouffier in his 'Voyage pittoresque de la Grèce', and was then sent to Jassy to observe Russian troop movements. His work is an account of a journey round the shores of the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea" (Atabey). While Chatzipanagioti-S. differentiates between the first and the second edition, the present variant is not described: the verso of the half-title of vol. 1 shows only the "avis au relieur"; p. 168: "Fin du tome premier"; p. 169 (beginning of text in vol. 2) is unpaginated. Thus, this apparently constitutes the second issue of the first editon. - Lechevalier stood in the service of Choiseul-Gouffier; from 1787 onwards he accompanied Alexander Ipsilanti on a tour of the Mediterranean which lasted several months. The maps show the Sea of Marmara, the Dardanelles, the Black Sea, the Bosporus, Constantinople, and Brussa. - Both title pages have contemporary ownership stamps ("S" with princely crown); a few minor tears to maps have been professionally repaired; some staining to title page of vol. 2. A prettily bound copy, formerly in the Ottoman collection of the Swiss industrialist Herry W. Schaefer. Blackmer 995. Weber II, 649. Atabey 697. Graesse IV, 137. Cf. Chatzipanagioti-S. 538f.

        THE FEDERALIST, ON THE NEW CONSTITUTION. BY PUBLIUS. WRITTEN IN 1788. TO WHICH IS ADDED, PACIFICUS, ON THE PROCLAMATION OF NEUTRALITY. WRITTEN IN 1793. LIKEWISE, THE FEDERAL CONSTITUTION, WITH ALL THE AMENDMENTS

      New York, 1802. Contemporary sheep, gilt morocco spine label on first volume (lacking on second volume). Hinges of second volume repaired, boards quite rubbed and edgeworn. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage of both volumes. Moderate tanning and staining. Good. In cloth chemises and half morocco and cloth slipcases, spines gilt. Styled the "revised and corrected" edition on the titlepage, with additions to the first edition of 1788. "Most famous and influential American political work. Written in collaboration with Jay and Madison" - Howes. Ford attributes editorship of this edition to John Wells, though Sabin attributes it to William Coleman, noting it as "the last issued during Hamilton's life...." This edition is expanded by the addition of the federal constitution and the first eleven amendments, and a series of articles written by Hamilton under the pseudonym "Pacificus," defending Washington's "Neutrality Proclamation" of 1793 regarding the Anglo-French war. Arguably the most complete edition, and the only other English language edition issued in Hamilton's lifetime, in the preface it identifies Hamilton, Jay, and Madison as the authors but does not specify who wrote which essays; "it was at first intended to mark the numbers distinctly which were written by each; but considerations have since occurred which would perhaps render this measure improper." Clearly issued by Hamilton partisans, the preface implies that virtually all of it was Hamilton's work, and the republication of the Pacificus essays (written in opposition to Madison) confirms the Hamiltonian slant.

      Paris: Imprimerie Impériale, 1802. Fine. Imprimerie Impériale, Paris 1802-1830, 70 X 51,5 cm, une feuille. - Original etching in plano extracted from the 'Imperial Edition' of the Description of Egypt or Series observations and research made in Egypt during the French expedition, published by order of His Majesty the Emperor Napoleon the Great. Conducted between 1802 and 1830, she was taken in 1000 copies available to institutions. Laid paper with watermark see-through ancient and modern Egypt, protected by winds. Views of several pyramids rising in the area of Fayoum, west of the Nile. The first mud brick planted in the desert north of the canal of Joseph. The second is also brick, east of the village of El Lahun. The third stood near the Nile Meydouneh on a truncated pyramidal base whose top seems unfinished. The fourth is one of the largest pyramids of Saqqara, consisting of a kind of capstone on a pedestal. Finally, the last views show the pyramids of Saqqara the south on the banks of the Nile. Perfect condition, almost without freckles marginal. The monumental first edition of the Description of Egypt in 13 volumes contained 892 colored plates of which 72, including 9 volumes involved antiquity. The other volumes dealt with the Natural History and modern Egypt as Napoleon Bonaparte had brought with him a commission of scholars from all disciplines so that, they said, in his description was stored the richest museum of universe. The work was written in part by Baron Dominique Vivant Denon before he became DG of Napoleon in the Louvre Museum. More than 80 artists and 400 writers were hired for this huge project. The dimensions of the exceptionally large boards necessitated the creation of a special press and a specific piece of furniture to keep them ...! --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Vues de plusieurs pyramides s'élevant dans la région du Fayoum, à l'Ouest du Nil. La première est en briques crues plantée dans un désert au nord du canal de Joseph. La seconde est en briques également, à l'est du village d'El Lâhoun. La troisième s'élève non loin du Nil, à Meydouneh, sur un socle pyramidal tronqué dont le sommet semble inachevé. La quatrième est l'une des plus grandes pyramides de Saqqarah, composée d'un genre de pyramidion sur un piédestal. Enfin les dernières vues montrent les pyramides de Saqqarah au midi sur les bords du Nil. Parfait état de conservation, presque sans rousseur marginale. La monumentale première édition de la Description de l'Egypte en 13 volumes comportait 892 planches dont 72 coloriées, parmi lesquelles 9 volumes concernaient l'Antiquité.

        The Divina Commedia of Dante Alighieri

      London: Cadell and Davies, 1802. First complete edition in English. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Dante. vi, [2], 408; [4], 384; [4], 420 pp., with the half-titles in all three volumes. 3 vols. 8vo. Uniform contemporary plain calf, covers with the gilt arms of the Society of Writers to the Signet in the center of each cover (neatly rebacked with a new spine and label, edges and corners a little rubbed). A little foxed and spotted in places, title-page of first volume evenly browned, large hole through the blank fore-margin of five leaves near the end of the first volume (not touching the text and possibly caused by a flaw in the paper before it was printed). First complete edition in English. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Dante. vi, [2], 408; [4], 384; [4], 420 pp., with the half-titles in all three volumes. 3 vols. 8vo. The pinnacle of Italian literature, Dante's Divine Comedy was completed a year before his death in 1321. Its significance and influence cannot be overstated. "In 1802 Boyd issued three volumes of an English verse translation of the whole Divina commedia of Dante, with preliminary essays, notes, and illustrations. The translation is important as the first English version of the complete Divine Comedy to be published... 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). The work is of further interest as record of early nineteenth century translation, as Boyd adheres to a neo-classical system of six line stanzas. Boyd was born into a farming family in Dromore, Co. Antrim and later educated at Trinity College, Dublin. His translation of the first book of Dante's Divine Comedy, the Inferno, was published in two volumes in 1785 with notes, a biography of Dante and a "specimen of a new translation of the Orlando Furioso of Ariosto". Provenance: The Society of Writers to the Signet, Edinburgh, with their gilt armorial stamp on the covers, label and shelfmarks on the front pastedown

      London: Printed by W. Stratford..for J. Taylor, at the Architectural Library, 1802. 8vo, original plain blue wrappers, in brown cloth folding box, gilt-lettered black morocco label on front of box. Allegorical engraved frontispiece, 8(title-page & text) pp., 28 plates printed on rectos only, [8(catalogue)] pp. Water spots on front wrapper, barely perceptible on frontispiece; occasional light foxing and soiling; an exceptional copy, untrimmed in original wrappers. Third and final edition, an unaltered reprint from the first edition of 1767 and the second of c. 1790. Essentially a pattern book for architectural follies, this extraordinary work depicts and describes designs for huts, hermitages, grottoes, and other rural retreats in which many bizarre building materials, ranging from roots and moss to bones and wool, are incorporated. Some of the edifices are amazingly complex and imposing. Wrighte's text is terse but suggestive; of one structure he writes, "This design is calculated to be built on a small verdant amphitheatre, near a murmuring stream, and as a proper retreat from the fatigues of a sultry day." In the publisher's catalogue at the rear this title is one of 32 architectural and decorative pattern books; and the fact that it went into three editions over a period of 35 years indicates its perceived importance.

        Lorimon ou l'homme tel qu'il est Denneville ou l'homme tel qu'il devrait

      à Paris: Chez Testu , chez Patris et Gilbert, 1802. Fine. Chez Testu , chez Patris et Gilbert, à Paris 1802, 6 tomes en 6 Vol. in 8 (13x20,5cm), relié. - New edition. Although publishers are different for the two works, there is a note at the end of Lorimont announcing the upcoming release of Denville. The two editions are similar in all respects, the editorial company has just been taken over by a follower, the leading perhaps having failed. Lorimont is illustrated with a frontispiece and six figures carved by Ruotte. Denneville itself is illustrated with a frontispiece and 6 figures unsigned. Note that the author of the prints is not the same for both works, while the style of engravings Lorimont is rather late eighteenth, the Denville is typical of the Empire (the costumes, postures and scenery are interesting). The publication of Lorimon is necessarily prior to 1802 Lorimon is followed by another: Miss Henrietta, or the story of the day. Full Sheepskin and marbled ice bicolor Empire. Smooth back long red morocco decorated with grains wheels nets and iron pieces with titles and volume numbers in chocolate morocco. boards marbled brown with 2 wheels original framing. Beautiful binding Empire, both elegant and rich. Bit rubbed, some smears. Beautiful series décorative.On bed, in the preliminary disboard Denville 'Lorimon shows us the human being in all its imperfections [...] and here it is expounded in the traits that make estimating, love. Both novels offering two biographies are moral novels, they are followed by notes that are as much philosophical and moral questions and the author considered as important as the narrative. Baculard Arnaud (1718-1805) was a French writer of the late eighteenth which had some success. His beginnings were noticed by Voltaire, who argued the same with his own money, he practiced what he calls himself the 'dark kind. Now that critics see wider than in the past, his work continues to grow in importance. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition. Bien que les éditeurs soient différents pour les deux oeuvres, on trouve une note à la fin de Lorimont annonçant la publication prochaine de Denneville. Les 2 éditions étant semblables en tous points, l'entreprise éditoriale a simplement été reprise par un suiveur, le premier éditeur ayant peut-être fait faillite. Lorimont est illustré d'un frontispice et de 6 figures gravées par Ruotte. Denneville est lui-même illustré d'un frontispice et de 6 figures non signées. On remarquera que l'auteur des gravures n'est pas le même pour les deux oeuvres, alors que le style des gravures de Lorimont est plutôt fin XVIIIe, celui de Denneville est typique de l'Empire (les costumes, les postures et les décors sont intéressants). La publication de Lorimon est forcément antérieur à 1802. Lorimon est suivi d'une nouvelle : Miss Henriette, ou l'anecdote du jour. Reliure en pleine basane glacée et marbrée Empire bicolore. Dos lisse en maroquin à longs grains rouge orné de roulettes filets et fers avec pièces de titres et de tomaisons en maroquin chocolat. Plats marbrés bruns avec 2 roulettes d'encadrement originales. Très belle reliure Empire, à la fois élégante et riche. Mors frottés, quelques frottis. Belle série décorative. On lit, dans le discours préliminaire de Denneville : 'Lorimon nous montre la créature humaine dans toutes ses défectuosites [...], et ici, elle nous est exposée sous des traits qui la font estimer, aimer. Les deux romans offrant deux biographies sont des romans moraux, ils sont suivis de notes qui sont autant d'interrogations philosophiques et morales et que l'auteur considérait comme tout aussi importantes que la narration. Baculard d'Arnaud (1718-1805) fut un écrivain français de la fin du XVIIIe qui eut un succès certain. Ses débuts furent remarqués par Voltaire, qui le soutint même de ses deniers, il pratiqua ce qu'il nomme lui-même le 'genre sombre'. A présent que les critiques voient plus large que par le passé, son oeuvre ne cesse de prendre de l'importance.

        Hob. XXI:3]. Die Jahreszeiten nach Thomson. Partitur. Originalausgabe. [Full score]

      Breitkopf & Haertel [without PN] [1802], Leipzig - First Edition (issue with text in both German and English). Hoboken XXI:3, pp. 58-59. Hoboken collection catalogue 9, 1411 (with watermarks). Hirsch IV, 795 (second copy; see note, ibid.). RISM H2542.This second collaboration between Haydn and the librettist Gottfried von Swieten was based on the poem by James Thomson (1700-1748) published in 1730. The work was first performed on April 24, 1801 in a private première at the Schwarzenberg Palace in Vienna; the first public production took place on May 19, 1801. "Although the initial reception of The Seasons was favourable – Haydn wrote to Clementi that it had enjoyed ‘unanimous approval’ and that ‘many prefer it to The Creation, because of its greater variety’ – critical opinion soon became mixed, owing in part to its perceived ‘lower’ subject, in part to a growing aesthetic resistance to its many pictorialisms. Haydn himself contributed to both strands of criticism: he supposedly said to Francis II, ‘In The Creation angels speak and tell of God, but in The Seasons only Simon speaks’ (Dies); and he indiscreetly criticized Swieten’s croaking frogs (‘Frenchified trash’) and the absurdity of a choral hymn to toil (Fleiss). Nonetheless he maintained that it would join The Creation in assuring his lasting fame. For the publication he took the path of lesser resistance, selling the rights to Breitkopf & Härtel." James Webster and Georg Feder in Grove Music Online.Early owner "G.F. Graham" may be George Farquhar Graham (1789- 1867), a Scottish musicologist and composer who contributed the article "Music" to the seventh edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Folio.
