        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.

        Description de l'Egypte : FAYOUM ET ENVIRONS Vues de deux pyramides en bri & §DAUDET#Robert§§(sculpsit) EDITION ORIGINALE

      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. Les autres volumes traitaient de l'Histoire Naturelle et de l'Egypte moderne car Napoléon Bonaparte avait emmené avec lui une commission de savants de toutes disciplines si bien que, disait-on, dans sa description était emmagasiné 'le plus riche musée de l'Univers'.

Plus de 80 artistes et 400 graveurs furent engagés pour ce projet titanesque.

        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. Berlin Cat. 3420. Harris, British Architectural Books and Writers, 1556-1785, 953.

        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.

Minstrelsy marked Scott's true literary debut, written and published as a collection of the traditional ballads that Scott had been collecting in yearly trips to the Borders since 1792. The Scottish Borders were of personal interest to Scott; in addition to spending part of his childhood in the region, the poet and historian spent the last decades of his life at Abbotsford, located on the banks of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders.

This defective Volume 1 again has matching period boards, glue, etc holding it together except the textblock has split, leaving the rear board loose with a few pages, and the last text page with some corner loss and a tear affecting the "Publius" printed signature.

      Borba de Moraes, p. 754; Colas 2594; Palau 281204; Sabin 73935. Beautifully and extensively illustrated work on the scenery, native inhabitants, colonial activity and slavery in Brazil, by the German-born painter Johann Moritz Rugendas (1802-1858). "Of the utmost importance for the study of Brazilian life at the beginning of the 19th century" (Borba de Moraes). The young artist Rugendas was invited to join an expedition to the interior of Brazil by the Russian Consul General Baron Langsdorff in 1821. After four years he left the expedition but he remained in Brazil. In 1825 he was recalled by King Maxmillian Joseph of Bavaria. The present work was published by Engelmann in 1835, when Rugendas was once again travelling in Central and South America. The text was written by V.A. Huber and others based on Rugendas's notes and translated into French by Marie-Philippe-Aimé de Golbéry. The fine plates show views, indigenous peoples in their native dress, and slave plantations. Head and foot of backstrip damaged and corners bumped; some occasional light foxing and spotting (2 text leaves browned). Good copy of this fabulously illustrated work on Brazil.

Horace de Viel-Castel Marc-Roch-Horace de Salviac, Baron de Viel-Castel, known as Horace de Viel-Castel (16 August 1802 Paris –1 October 1864), was an art lover and collector, and director of the Louvre until 1863. A Bonapartist, he staunchly supported Napoleon III. He was an intimate of Princess Mathilde and of Alfred de Musset, the right arm of Nieuwerkerke until his disgrace on 12 March 1863. His memoires, which covered the time from 1851 until his death in 1864, testify to the society of the Second Empire. Although rich in detail on history, plans, and policy, it is his prickly and malicious style which granted the author a dark posterity after their publication twenty years after his death: he was a misanthrope, and a reactionary. His favorite targets were Leon de Laborde, Prince Napoleon and Victor Hugo. Also notable was his anglophobia. Quotations "France has never been republican because it is the kingdom of vanity" "The Emperor looks at the world as a chess-board on which he plays his part; it little matters to him whether his adversary is overpowered by a knight or a pawn, as long as he is conquered."

        Ruins at Cannouge [Kannauj]

      published byThomas Daniell, London 1802 - Hand-colored aquatint on heavy wove paper. Image size: 17 5/8 x 23 5/8 inches; Sheet size: 21 x 29 1/8 inches. A highly atmospheric depiction of a once splendid capital Kannauj, the ancient city of Kanyakubja, the capital of the Emperor Harshavardhana (early 7th century) and later of the Pratihara dynasty (mid-7th to the 11th centuries), had by the early 15th century become an important Muslim city, part of the Sultanate of Jaunpur. The Jami' Masjid or Congregational Mosque in Kannauj was converted from former Hindu buildings in the period 1400-06 by Sultan Ibraham Shah of Jaunpur. The Daniell print shows the relatively unadorned front of the half ruined prayer hall with its pointed arches and polygonal columns typical of Muslim architecture in India before the arrival of the Mughals, although the richly carved corbels supporting the mostly vanished chajja or heavy eave are typically Hindu. Facing the mosque is an ancient tomb. The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated works on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

Early owner markings to front pastedown, his signature to head of p. 7, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition. With an appendix of forms. As Horwitz has pointed out, this is "the first American treatise on commercial law." Surrency notes that it was also the first to deal with admiralty law. It focused on shipping and maritime commerce, with substantial sections on insurance and bankruptcy. Reflecting the tension that existed between arbitrators and courts of law, Caines insisted that "in what appertains to trade, let it be constantly remembered, that custom alone is law" (220). Among other topics, this treatise has fascinating entries on the slave trade and the character of different ports. Caines was the official reporter of the New York Supreme Court.

      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)].

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. * 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.

Good solid copy, with an outstanding provenance, rarely encountered complete. "Drayton's 'View' is the product of a traveling governor. He is said to have been the only governor to pass over the whole upper country. In a preface, dated 1821, to the manuscript of the book, he said it was composed and written in 1800-1802. It is the product not only of experience and observation, but of the written sources available to Drayton, including state papers and records. It is documented rather fully ... Drayton made no effort to diagnose the trouble with a wealthy society that had little interest in scientific agriculture or education. Slavery he thought permitted by the law of nature, and slaveowning one of the natural rights of man. In the tradition of Southern governors, he inveighed against humanitarian attacks on slavery as Northern interference" (Clark). (2589)

        THE CYCLOPAEDIA; OR, UNIVERSAL DICTIONARY OF ARTS, SCIENCES, AND LITERATURE - 11 PLATE VOLUMES

      Longman Hurst Rees Orme & Brown 1802-1820 - B&W Illustrations; This lot CONSISTS OF THE COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE ENGRAVINGS FROM REES'S "CYCLOPAEDIA". Rees's Cyclopædia, in full The Cyclopædia; or, Universal Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, and Literature was an important 19th-century British encyclopædia edited by Rev. Abraham Rees (1743–1825) , a Presbyterian minister and scholar who had edited previous editions of Chambers's Cyclopædia. The Cyclopædia appeared serially between January 1802 and August 1820, and eventually ran to 39 volumes of text and 6 volumes of plates including an atlas [which is not present]. It contained around 39 million words, and around 500 of the articles are of monograph length. The sheets were produced weekly, and issued as half-volume sets several times a year. Only one set of the work in half-volumes (which also has some of the paper wrappers) is known to survive, in the library of the Natural History Museum, London. The plates were published in 6 volumes: four covering general articles, one on natural history, and one atlas. They were issued as blocks and so do not appear to have been issued with the texts in the half-volumes. There are 1107 Plates. THIS COLLECTION HERE BEING OFFERED consists of ELEVEN BOUND VOLUMES OF ENGRAVINGS alphabetically arranged from "Architecture" through "Zoophytes." Volumes are numbered and begin with IV through X, continue with XIII and XIV, and conclude with XIX and XXII.

        Autograph Letter Signed to G[eorge?] Hammond, 1 page 4to (slightly irregular at left hand margin), Bath, 28 October 1802.

      - Thanking him for papers delivered that morning and asking whether others could be sent. The letter is probably to George Hammond (1763-1853, diplomatist, the first British minister to the United States of America, and at this time under-secretary at the Foreign Office).'I am much obliged to Lord Hawkesbury for the interesting Papers which I received from you this morning, and which I return enclosed. I observe two antecedent Papers referred to (a dispatch from Lord Hawkesbury N14, and a Letter from Mr Otto of the 23d July) which I should also be glad to see, if he will have the goodness to let me them be sent.'Lord Hawkesbury (1770-1828, later second earl of Liverpool and prime minister) had become foreign secretary in Addington's administration following Pitt's precipitous resignation in February 1801. It is likely that the present letter relates to Pitt's continued interest in political affairs whilst out of office, and in particular to the negotiations which resulted in the peace with France concluded at the peace of Amiens in March 1802 and the fall-out from the treaty, which appalled many of the cabinet for the several of its terms which were deemed to be inimicable to Britain's interests. The rather mysterious Monsieur Otto had been the French negotiator in the period leading up to the signing of the treaty. None of Pitt's recent biographers seem to give Otto his full name, and even Lord Stanhope in his four-volume biography of 1862, who mentions Otto three times, can only describe him as 'A French gentleman employed by the First Consul [who] was at this time residing in London as agent for the exchange of prisoners' (Life of the Right Honourable William Pitt, London 1862, Vol. iii, p. 239).

Octavos, xvi, [2], 528; xiii, 512; xii, 512; xiii, 492 pages. 28 plates (complete), one hand-colored, plus illustrations in the text. First edition, of the first domestic encyclopedia in the English language, an encyclopedia aimed at the rural household, with emphasis on agriculture and domestic concerns, but not much on cookery. Murray and Highley published this reference work in octavo-sized volumes, smaller and handier than the Britannica's quartos, or the Chamber's folios. In 1803 an American edition was issued by Birch and Small of Philadelphia, expanded into five volumes by James Mease. A second American edition was issued in just three volumes in 1821, but unlike the earlier editions, it contained cookery (see Lowenstein 87 for a note on this). In marbled boards over quarter speckled brown calf, professionally re-backed with the original spine panels and labels. Lacking the original half-titles, but otherwise very good, clean and sound throughout. Still, handsome and very good. With the bookplate of John Fuller, Director of the Scottish Hotel School, and a great collector of books on cookery, gastronomy and hospitality; and with a second, earlier, unidentified bookplate. [Attar 339.1; Bitting, page 499; Lowenstein 87 (for American printings).].

        Laurie & Whittle's New Chart of the Straits of Malacca

      London: Laurie & Whittle, 1802. unbound. Sea chart. Uncolored copper plate engraving. Image measures 35 1/2" x 48". Magnificent sea chart of the Strait of Malacca including Singapore covers from the Red Islands south past Malacca to Poolo Bitang and the Straits of Dryon. Singapore Island and strait, which was rarely explicitly mentioned in maps of this time, but was nevertheless an important trade artery, is identified here. Till date, the Strait of Singapore is one of the busiest trade routes of the world. An inset of the Straits of Singapore on a larger scale is included below the title. Another large inset of the Passage from Poolo Larra to Cape Rachado on a larger scale is included in the lower left quadrant. The western coast of the Malay Peninsula as well as the eastern coast of Sumatra is beautifully detailed with various towns, mountains, and inlets noted. Countless depth soundings, as well as shading to indicate shoals, reefs, and other undersea dangers are evident throughout. The coast line is illustrated with topographical cross sections. This chart is drawn from several surveys and manuscript charts of Alexander Black, the late Mr. John Redford of the Nonsuch together with those of Captain Horsburgh, G.G. Richardson, John Lindsay etc. etc. Published in "The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator, on One Hundred and Eighteen Plates: Containing a Complete Collection of Charts and Plans, &c..." Maps are based on the 1745 French "Neptune Oriental" by Jean Baptiste Nicolas Denis d'Apres de Mannevillette. The later English editions include various additions. With their beautiful and unusual visual approach, these incredibly scarce sea charts are rarely available for sale. Minor overall offsetting. Stains at places and minor wear along along edges. Robert Laurie (c. 1755 - 1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818) were London-based map and atlas publishers active in the late 18th and early 19th century. Their firm combined Laurie's engraving skills with Whittle's social contacts and print sales experience. Together, they published numerous maps and atlases, often enlisting prominent cartographers such as Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their plates. Scarce.

        The Spirit of Laws [With an "Account of the Author's Life and Writings" extracted from "Eloge de M. de Montesquieu" by M. de Maupertuis]

      Worcester: Printed by Isaiah Thomas, Jun. sold by him and by Mathew Carey, Philadelphia; also by the various Booksellers throughout the United States, 1802. First American edition. The first edition was published in 1748. The first translation into English was by Thomas Nugent in 1750 (1752 according to the DNB) which went through several editions. It may be this translation in the American edition. 8vo. Two volumes bound as one. Contemporary calf. Rebacked, new endpapers, hole in upper margin of title and adjacent leaves, tear on final leaf affecting a few letters, browning and offsetting. In a leather tipped brown cloth open end case. First American edition. The first edition was published in 1748. The first translation into English was by Thomas Nugent in 1750 (1752 according to the DNB) which went through several editions. It may be this translation in the American edition. 8vo. In thirty-one books Montesquieu treats the historical origins and principles of laws. The books fall into six sections, the first dealing with forms of government and law in general (eight books); the second with taxation and military arrangements (five books); the third, with manners and customs and their "dependence on climatic conditions" (six books); the fourth with economic matters (four books); the fifth consisting of three books relates to religion; and the last five books (sixth section) with Roman, French and feudal law. This work is "an assemblage of the most fertile, original and inspiriting views on legal and political subjects, put in language of singular suggestiveness and vigour, illustrated by examples which are always apt and luminous, permeated by the spirit of temperate and tolerant desire for human improvement and happiness, and almost unique in its entire freedom at once from doctrinairism, from visionary enthusiasm, from egotism, and from an undue spirit of system" (Ency. Brit.) "One of the greatest masterpieces of political theory and a pioneering work in sociology ... In its stress on the historical role of the nobility as a check to royal power it provided a theoretical justification for the resurgance of aristocratic power which was so important in the origins of the French Revolution ... its emphasis on the separation of powers of government and on a system of checks and balances profoundly influenced constitutional thought in both America and France" (Charles B. MacNamara, "France in the Age of Revolution," Cornell, 1981). Montesquieu's disapproval of slavery and of religious intolerance are both voiced in this work as are his views on witchcraft (sceptical). In the "Preface" the author writes "I have laid down the first principles, and have found that the particular cases apply naturally to them, that the histories of all nations are only consequences of them; and that every particular law is connected with another law, or depends on some other of a more general extent." One of the primary evidences of Montesquieu's teachings that "in a republican government the whole power of educaion is required if the virtue that makes men choose public over private interest is to be sustained" appears in Jefferson's "Bill for More General Diffusion of Knowledge" of 1779 (Cremin "American Education" p. 439). Shaw and Shoemaker 2682; Tchemerzine viii, 459/60 and PMM 197 for the first edition; McCulloch, pp. 356-8 for the first English edition

      Worcester: Printed by Isaiah Thomas, Jun, 1802. First American edition. viii, [13]-154, [2] pp. Sm. 12mo. Contemporary sheep-backed marbled boards, morocco label. Worn, rubbed, chipping of boards, some browning and spotting of text, mostly light. Ownership signatures of Mary Turner and Capt. George Walsh of Charlestown, Mass. In a brown cloth open end case. The marbled boards show text through, it appears to be the preface from a medical text. First American edition. viii, [13]-154, [2] pp. Sm. 12mo. There was a strong interest in the Moslem states at this time as numerous sailors and ships had been taken prisoner in the Mediterranean. In 1801 when Jefferson became the president, the United States had already paid almost two million dollars to Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco and Algiers, either to allow our ships passage on the Mediterranean or to ransom prisoners. The bashaw of Tripoli had even declared war on the United States, as he thought that he deserved additional monies as tribute. This war began in May of 1801 and continued until 1804 with the attack on Tripoli by Commodore Preble in the "U.S.S. Constitution." This was primarily a naval war. Shaw and Shoemaker 2535

        Genereal Leclerc's Handwritten Letter to Artillery Brigade Commander Alex, on October 3, 1802

      Dated on 11 vendémiaire an 11 de la République française (October 3, 1802), At the Headquarters of Le Cap (Au Quartier-général du Cap) - With printed heading "Armee de Saint-Domingue, le General en Chef. Liberté, Égalité.". Signed by Leclerc. 1 leaf, written on both sides. Leclerc's letter regarding the military positions at Le Cap (or Cap-Français; today: Cap-Haïtien) that should be garnished with artillery in case of an attack. Leclerc gives detailed suggestions about the firepower, the number of cannons and howitzers, their supplies and exact positions. He mentions General Claparède, asks the cooperation with him at Fort L'Hopital and Fort Bel-Air. Orders Commander Alex to go with General Claparède for a tour of inspection at La Petite-Anse to see what state the entrenchments are and how many artillery pieces are there. Leclerc refers that he is going to write to General Latouche regarding the amount of gunpowder at their naval station. Charles Leclerc (1772-1802) was a French Army general, Napoleon Bonaparte's brother-in-law. After proving his abilities in Napoleon's campaign in the Orient and in Germany in the Army of the Rhine, he was appointed to Captain General of the Saint-Domingue expedition, the attempt to regain French control of the island and to restore slavery, that has been abolished during the Haiti Revolution. After Leclerc's initial success, the expedition was ended with a French defeat in November 1803, and the successful slave revolt led Haiti to became the first independent black republic. Leclerc died in yellow fever in 1802. General Claparède (Michel Marie Claparède; 1770-1842) was a French general, who took part in the Saint-Domingue expedition where he was promoted to general de brigade. General Latouche (Louis-René Levassor de Latouche Tréville; 1745-1804) was a French Vice-admiral, he fought in the American War of Independence, the French Revolutionary Wars and the Napoleonic wars as well. In October 1801 he carried troops to Saint-Domingue and assisted in the capture of Port-au-Prince and Léogane, and he managed to obtain the peaceful surrender of General Laplume. He got the yellow fever and in 1803 he returned to France where he died in 1804. Edges slightly chipped, with no effect on legibility. Overall in very good condition. With printed heading "Armee de Saint-Domingue, le General en Chef. Liberté, Égalité.". [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Register of deceased of the French Army in Saint-Domingue

      - 1 page document. Ca. 1802-1803. Written both sides. Signed by Boyer. With the stamp of "État Major Général de l'Armee de St. Domingue". List of the the deceased officers of the French Army during the Saint-Domingue expedition. Signed by the Brigadier General, the Chief of Stuff Pierre François Joseph Boyer (1772-1851). Thirteen names are registered, among them the leaders of Napoleon Bonaparte's Saint-Domingue expedition, the attempt to regain the control of the island: Major General Charles Leclerc (1772-1802), Divisional General Charles Dugua (1740-1802), Divisional General Pierre-Joseph Watrin (1772-1802), Brigadier General W?adys?aw Franciszek Jab?onowski (1769-1802), and Brigadier General Jean-Baptiste Maur Meyer (1768-1802). All died from the 1802 Saint-Domingue yellow fever epidemic that hit the French troops severely. Lacking knowledge about prevention and control measures, mortality from the disease was crucial, more than half of the French army died, and they were defeated at the battle of Vertières on 18 November 1803. On 1 January 1804 the colony of Saint-Domingue proclaimed independence, under the name of Haiti, thus she became the first independent black republic, and the only nation ever to form a successful slave revolt. Chipped at edges. Overall in good condition. 1 page document. Ca. 1802-1803. Written both sides. Signed by Boyer. With the stamp of "État Major Général de l'Armee de St. Domingue".
