        RETURN OF THE WHOLE NUMBER OF PERSONS WITHIN THE SEVERAL DISTRICTS OF THE UNITED STATES: ACCORDING TO "AN ACT PROVIDING FOR THE SECOND CENSUS OR ENUMERATION OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE UNITED STATES," PASSED FEBRUARY THE 28th, ONE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED

      Washington: Printed at the Apollo Press, by Wm. Duane & Son, 1802.. [5]-88pp. plus folding table. Contemporary marbled wrappers. Wrappers lightly rubbed. Near fine. The octavo edition of the complete returns of the second American census (the first to be printed by official order), following the very rare folio edition of the previous year. When the delegates of the Constitutional Convention met in Philadelphia in 1787, the population of America was a great unknown. Aside from the expected reduction in the male population due to the recent war, hoards of Loyalists had fled to Canada, while throughout the 1780s large numbers of families sought new opportunities in the frontier along the Ohio. These dramatic shifts, combined with a known but unquantified increase in the number of births per annum, created a definite need for some sort of official count. Under Madison's leadership six categories were determined for the first American census of 1790: heads of family, free white males over sixteen, free white males under sixteen, free white females, other free persons, and slaves. Despite the usual hesitancy of the people to offer such personal information to government officials, the effort was a resounding success; but due to rapid growth and increased contact with Indians, it was clear that the next census would require even more statistical enumeration. In early 1800, Congress passed an act mandating a new census. The present effort contains a new layer of schedules, including places of residence, new age group brackets for free white males and females, and, most importantly, the qualification that untaxed Indians be left off the roll of "other free persons." All of the states are represented, as well as the aforementioned territories and other regions such as the eastern and western districts of Pennsylvania and Virginia, and the District of Columbia, here noted as part of Virginia. Such luminaries as Thomas Jefferson and Timothy Dwight of Yale called for even more specific information such as economic standing, occupation, and distinctions between immigrant and natural-born free people; but Congress, for now, ignored their appeals. The total population, with corrections, is given as just over 5.3 million. A most important record of the growth of the United States, at a key moment in the history of American demography.

        Plate 26 - Methonica Superba (Superb Climbing Lily)

      Pierre-Joseph Redout?Hand-colored stipple engraving from Les Liliac?esParis: 1802-181631 1/4” x 24 1/4” framedThe unequalled botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redout? occupies a central position in the development of European flower painting. Redout? had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, fromMarie-Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in a turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, a testament to his greatness as an artist. Les Liliac?es was Redout?'s largest and most ambitious work and is generally considered his masterpiece, arguably rivaled only by Les Roses. Produced under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, for whom Redout? worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration.The title Les Liliac?es is misleading, as the work was of a much broader scope, including representatives of the lily, amaryllis, iris, orchid, and other families. The plates were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method that the artist himself perfected when he was unsatisfied with the effects garnered by traditional copper-plate engraving. As Redout? shrewdly observed, the delicacy and subtle elegance of his compositions could only be captured using a printing method equally fine. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. The medium involved engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that could be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink rested on the paper in miniscule dots, it did not obscure the "light" of the paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were finished by hand in watercolor, so as to conform to the exquisite models Redout? provided.??? ??? ??? ??? ??? Les Liliac?es records the plants of the lily family, and related flowers, that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redout?'s small drawings, placed at the bottom of the main illustrations, record the anatomical features of each species so that each flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. In each illustration, as in his series Les Roses, the flowers are classical "portraits" which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Redout?s's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate rendering.

Redouté had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie-Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in a turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, a testament to his greatness as an artist. Les Liliacées was Redouté's largest and most ambitious work and is generally considered his masterpiece, arguably rivaled only by Les Roses. Produced under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, for whom Redouté worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration. The title Les Liliacées is misleading, as the work was of a much broader scope, including representatives of the lily, amaryllis, iris, orchid, and other families. The plates were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method that the artist himself perfected when he was unsatisfied with the effects garnered by traditional copper-plate engraving. As Redouté shrewdly observed, the delicacy and subtle elegance of his compositions could only be captured using a printing method equally fine. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. The medium involved engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that could be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink rested on the paper in miniscule dots, it did not obscure the "light" of the paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were finished by hand in watercolor, so as to conform to the exquisite models Redouté provided. Les Liliacées records the plants of the lily family, and related flowers, that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redouté's small drawings, placed at the bottom of the main illustrations, record the anatomical features of each species so that each flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. In each illustration, as in his series Les Roses, the flowers are classical "portraits" which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Redoutés's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate rendering. Arader Galleries stocks the largest inventory in the world of Natural history watercolors, engravings, woodcuts, lithographs, color plate books and reference books on this subject. It is our firm intention never to be undersold.

        "A Song Supposed to have been written by the Sage of Monticello" [and five other satiric poems in]: The Port Folio, Enlarged (Volume 2: July, October-December, 1802)

      Philadelphia: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens. 1802. First. Periodical. Folio. A collection of 17 weekly issues of The Port Folio, containing a series of six satirical poems directed against Thomas Jefferson, specifically concerning his relations with Sally Hemings. Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into four sets of consecutive issues. [Set one]: July 3 -- July 31, Nos. 26-30; [set two]: October 2 -- October 30, Nos. 39-43; [set three]: November 6 -- November 27, Nos. 44-47; [set four]: December 4 -- December 18, Nos. 48-50. Overall browning and scattered foxing, the last two issues from December (nos. 49 and 50) are clipped at the bottom right corner (with minimal loss of text), good.Founded by Joseph Dennie and Asbury Dickens in Philadelphia in January 1801, and edited by Dennie, The Port Folio quickly became the most important magazine devoted to literature and politics in the United States. During the period of its greatest influence, from 1802 to 1805, Dennie had organized a distinguished circle of mostly pro-Federalist contributors known for their "liveliness, urbanity, and wit." The Republicans and Jefferson in particular were frequently attacked in its pages. Thus when James T. Callender first published the allegation that Jefferson had fathered several children by his slave Sally Hemings (in the September 1st issue of the Richmond Recorder), Dennie was quick to exploit and expand upon the charge in this famous series of satirical poems, including one now known to have been written by John Quincy Adams. A detailed list of the six poems is available. .

        "The Wolf King; or Little Red Riding Hood: An Old Woman's Tale," [ballad in] The Port Folio; Enlarged (June 5th - 26th, 1802)

      Philadelphia: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens. 1802. First. Periodical. Folio. A set of four weekly issues from June, 1802. (Volume 2, Nos. 22-25). Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into one set of four consecutive issues. Browning and scattered foxing, with two partial columns (seven and two inches) clipped from the last leaf of the first issue (pp. 175-176), else good. Contains the first American appearance of a sensational burlesque version of "Little Red Riding Hood" (pages 173-174). First published anonymously in Tales of Terror (London, 1801), a collection of ballads satirizing the gothic writings of Matthew Gregory "Monk" Lewis, this account of the nursery tale is notably grimmer than the 1812 Brothers Grimm version. The Port Folio was an important Federalist literary magazine founded in Philadelphia in 1801 and edited by Joseph Dennie under the pen name "Oliver Oldschool, Esq." Also included in the June 5th issue are obituary notices for Martha Washington, "widow of the late illustrious general," and Sara Jay, "the amiable and much respected wife of his excellency John Jay." .

        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. - pp.322-331 plus plate. 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.

      Madrid: En la imprenta de la viuda de Don Joaquin Ibarra, 1802. - Torio (1759-1820) was a member of the Royal Society for Economics in Madrid, and keeper of archives to the Marques de Astorga. He "was a man of extensive culture who had studied several languages, an uncommon accomplishment for a master of calligraphy at that time. Torio, in addition to being an excellent writing master, is above all praised as an able and impartial critic and historian of the art, credited with reforming the bad taste which he considered prevalent among the Spanish scribes of his time. The bibliographer, Cotarelo y Mori, gives extensive space to Torio in his important work on the Spanish calligraphersÉTorio's principal work was the Arte de escribir, which was celebrated by his contemporaries and makes a fundamental contribution to the development of Spanish calligraphy" (Morison, Calligraphy 1535-1885, Milano: 1962, p. 165). Small quarto. [xxxii], 445, [1, note] pp. With fifty-eight engraved plates designed by the author, engraved by Asensio, Castro, Gangioti. Engraved title-page.

Early 20th-century red-brown half calf, raised bands to spine, titles and decorations to spine gilt, buff boards block-printed with stylised floral designs in green, white, and yellow, same design to endpapers. 2 partially coloured engraved folding maps by James Rennell.

Spine sunned, corners and edges of boards slightly bumped and worn, split to top of front free endpaper repaired with archival tape to both recto and verso, prelims, endmatter, and map-adjacent leaves lightly foxed, occasional minor spotting throughout, short closed tear to stub of first folding map. First English edition; originally published in German in 1801. The accounts of Horneman (1772-1800), "the first European in modern times to traverse the north-eastern Sahara" (Britannica). He originally set out from Cairo to explore the Niger and locate its source on behalf of the African Association in London. This copy was gifted to the Aggrey House by Major Hanns Vischer (1876-1945), the Swiss-born British Africanist and colonial educationist. Aggrey House was a London hostel for African students established by the League of Coloured Peoples (LCP) in collaboration with the Colonial Office in 1934; Vischer presented this copy to the hostel's library that same year. However, the support of the Colonial Office made Aggrey House "part of a wider debate about the place of the politics of empire in Britain", in particular as it was seen as a rival of the West African Students' Union (WASU) hostel (Rosenhaft, Africa in Europe, p.86). While the Colonial Office claimed it sought to create "an African Club in London", "a real home" for Africans studying in Britain (Whittall, in Africa in Europe, p.84), WASU saw the Colonial Office's involvement to be an attempt to influence and control colonial students (WASU, The Truth About Aggrey House, n.p.).

Titel) Kupfern auf 49 Tafeln. XII, 151 S. Ockerfarbener Pappbd. d. Zt., Deckel von schmaler vergold. (oxydiert) Bordüre eingefasst; vord. Gelenk leicht beschabt, Ecken etw. bestoßen.

      . . Pilz S. 340f. (unter Johann Georg Lederer); Brüggemann/Evers 504 (4. Aufl. v. 1802); Monschein 81 (ausführlich). - Sehr seltenes, reizend illustriertes Werk. "In 76 Kapiteln werden Himmel und Erde, die Elemente, Fauna und Flora, Schiffahrt, Instrumente, das Haus und seine Teile, Musik usf. in lateinischer Sprache erklärt. Jedes Kapitel enthält am Ende ein deutsch-lateinisches Glossarium, in dem die noch unbekannten Vokabeln angeführt werden" (Monschein). Zur Entstehung schreibt der Autor in der "Vorrede": "Das viele Nachfragen nach einem lateinischen Lesebuch mit Kupfern für kleine Anfänger, das ihren iugendlichen Bedürfnissen entspricht und doch keinen großen Aufwand verursachet, hat mich auf den Gedanken gebracht, gegenwärtiges Werkchen herauszugeben. ... Eigentlich besteht es aus gemeinnüzigen, leichten Stücken, die aus des berühmten Comenii Orbe Picto, den der gelehrte Herr Rector Lederer in Sachsen, vor zwey Jahren ganz umgearbeitet und verbessert, aber ohne Kupfer, herausgab". Monschein weist darauf hin, dass es sich bei "Rektor Lederer aus Sachsen" um Johann Christian Lederer aus Jessen (bei Wittenberg) handeln muss und nicht, wie Pilz angibt, um den Namensvetter Johann Georg aus Nürnberg. Da der erste Band von Johann Peter Voits 1789 erschienenen "Unterhaltungen aus der Naturgeschichte" mehr oder weniger eine Übersetzung des "Kleinen Lateiners" darstellt und auch alle Kupfer übernommen wurden, vermutet sie weiter zumindest eine Mitautorschaft Voits an vorliegendem Werk. Etwa die Hälfte der hübschen, meist nach Gabler gestochenen Kupfer zeigen Tiere und Pflanzen, die übrigen teils sehr dekorative Berufs- und Werkstattdarstellungen (Buchbinder, Papiermacher, Glashütte, Uhrmacher, Küche, Garten- u.

        Shakespeare Macbeth Act IV Scene I a dark cave. In the middle a Cauldron boiling. Three Witches, Macbeth, Hecate, &c

      John & Josiah Boydell, London 1802 - A superb impression of one of the greatest images in Boydell's Shakespeare Gallery, from the original painting by Sir Joshua Reynolds "This is Shakespeare on a grand scale, the Shakespeare of titanic emotion, of compelling gesture and vivid gaze.the greatest of the engravings.are by any standard powerful works with an inescapable emotional force behind them. They speak directly to us." (A. E. Santaniello, The Boydell Shakespeare Prints, New York, 1979) In 1786, the printseller John Boydell (1719-1804) "embarked upon the most important enterprise of his life, viz. the publication, by subscription, of a series of prints illustrative of [the works of] Shakespeare, after pictures painted expressly for the work by English artists. For this purpose he gave commissions to all the most celebrated painters of this country for pictures, and built a gallery in Pall Mall for their exhibition. The execution of this project extended over several years. In 1789 the Shakespeare Gallery contained thirty-four pictures, in 1791 sixty-five, in 1802 one hundred and sixty-two, of which eighty-four were of large size. The total number of works executed was 170, three of which were pieces of sculpture, and the artists employed were thirty-three painters and two sculptors, Thomas Banks and the Hon. Mrs. Damer. It appears from the preface to the catalogue of 1789, and from other recorded statements of Boydell, that he wished to do for English painting what he had done for English engraving, to make it respected by foreigners." ( DNB ) Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792) was considered in his time the greatest artist of the era, and the brightest star of the constellation of artists who contributed to Boydell's Shakespeare Gallery. Here, in a great whirlwind of otherworldly beings, he shows Macbeth confronting, as it were, his true fate, having been deceived by a partial revelation at the start of the action. Macbeth's muscular, commanding figure waves his long dagger uselessly at the insubstantial spirits and ghosts, while the ghoulish witches and their entourage black magical beings calmly watch him. Cf. Santaniello (op.cit.). Stipple engraving. Printed on wove Whatman paper. In perfect condition. Image size: 17 1/4 x 23 1/8 inches.
