United States Congress
E. Bronson, printed by Thos. Smith, Philadelphia, 1802. [2],324pp. Half title. Bound in original period leather with gilt spine label. Some scattered foxing, lightly toned. Some worm spots, though it does not appear to affect any text. Interesting provenance, as it was part of the Georgetown (South Carolina) Library Society collection, with their 1803 dated bookplate on the front pastedown. An important record of the evolution of American law and the development of judicial independence in the early republic. This is one of two printings of the debates over the repeal of the Judiciary Act of 1801. This version is edited from a Federalist perspective, with critical comments on the debates as recorded in the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, an organ of the Jeffersonian Republicans. The debate over the repeal of the Judiciary Act of 1801 addressed issues of judicial review and the role, size, and authority of the judiciary branch, issues which led ultimately to the landmark case of Marbury v. Madison. The 1801 act, passed by a Federalist Congress, reduced the number of Supreme Court justices from six to five, created new circuits, and allowed outgoing President John Adams to appoint several new federal judges, the so-called "midnight judges." Jefferson opposed the 1801 act, and though it was overturned by the Judiciary Act of 1802, the federal judiciary remained fundamentally unaltered. The Marbury v. Madison decision of 1803 solidified the notion of judicial review of legislation and elevated the Supreme Court to a level of equality with the executive and legislative branches.

HORNEMAN, or HORNEMANN, Frederick
London, W. Bulmer and Co., 1802. 4to. Contemporary speckled calf, covers gilt-tooled with floral borders, rebacked, retaining original lettering-piece; pp. iv, xxvi, 188, 188* [one leaf Postscript], 189-195; 3 maps (2 large folding one with hand-coloured routes); edges of the boards a bit worn, one map with repaired tear along fold, otherwise very clean and fresh; bookplate Arthur Kelly Kelly inside front cover. First English edition. Hornemann was selected by the African Association to explore westward in a search for the source of the Niger from Cairo, thus complementing Mungo Park's travels eastward from the river Gambia. To this end, in September 1798 he joined at Cairo a merchant caravan travelling from Mecca and by this means crossed the Libyan desert to reach Mourzouk (Murzuk), the capital of the Fezzan. No more was heard from him after January 1800 after setting out in disguise from Tripoli across the Sahara for Bornu. His published journal includes several appendices, including observations on the travels by William Young (Secretary of the African Association), James Rennell and William Marsden. The two folding maps by Rennell show Hornemann's route and a more general map of North Africa which compares the travels of Hornemann, Park, Bruce and Browne and illustrates the extent of European knowledge of the area. Hornemann 're-discovered the oases of Siwa and Aujila, famous during Classical times and was the first white person to cross the lava desert of Harudj-el-Asued on the pilgrims' route to Timbuktu. When Heinrich Schiffer visited Hornemann's route in 1957 he r … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Chladni (1756-1827), professor of physics in Breslau, was the first to reduce the general association between vibration and pitch to a tabular basis, and thus to lay the foundation of the modern science of acoustics. His first results were first reported in New Discoveries in the Theory of Sound, 1787, and were greatly enlarged upon in Acoustics, 1802. He spread sand on plates made of metal and glass, which were fixed in clamps. He then applied a violin bow to the edge of each plate and recorded the patterns produced thereby in the sand. These figures are still known by Chladni's name" (Printing and the Mind of Man 288b). Chladni was from an early age interested in music, and was himself an amateur musician "who designed and constructed two keyboard instruments, the euphonium and the clavicylinder, both being variations of the glass harmonica" (see DSB for a detailed account of his life and experiements).

With engraved and woodcut head- and tailpieces; 3 engraved and folded plates. Allegorical engraved title vignette (a putto surrounded by books). A uniformly bound set in contemporary marbled boards with gilt label to flat green spine. All edges untrimmed. Second edition, produced in a total press run of 502 copies, of which only two were printed on large paper (cf. Graesse, Ebert and Wurzbach). The normal-paper copies measure a mere 36 cm, compared to the present copy, which stands 45 centimetres tall. - As the first edition, published in 1680, had been rare from the start, most copies having perished in the Siege of Vienna, and plans for a new London edition had fallen through, a second edition was becoming increasingly desirable. With the financial support of Empress Maria Theresa, who granted an advance of 8000 fl., the monumental work was edited by the Austrian orientalist Bernhard Freiherr von Jenisch (1734-1807), who enlisted the aid of Franz von Klezl for the final three volumes; the printer Kurzböck had many of the types specially recast. "[Jenischs] wissenschaftliches Hauptverdienst [...] besteht in der Ausführung der zweiten Auflage des arabisch-persisch-türkischen Wörterbuches von Meninski, welche er [...] 1780-1802 in 4 Foliobänden in Wien besorgte.

DONOVAN, E.
London, printed for the author and for F. and C. Rivington, 1802-1808. 5 volumes. 8vo (235 x 142mm). With 120 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates and explanatory text. Contemporary green half morocco, richly gilt decorated spines with gilt lettering. First edition of one of the finest works on fishes. " . the paint is laid on so thickly that it is frequently impossible to see the engraved lines underneath. The already rich colouring is heightened by the addition of burnished highlights, albumen overglazes and metallic paints to give an overall effect reminiscent of the work of a miniaturist. Surprisingly, these techniques were often combined to produce a very pleasing and delicate effect: the multiple ruses of the colourist triumph over the draughtsman's numerous failures. Donovan overreached himself and died penniless ." (Dance, Art of natural History p. 87).Edward Donovan (1768-1837) was a Anglo-Irish naturalist and the author of a number of important natural history works which stand out for their perfection of execution. Best known are probably his publications of the insects of China and India. He was a Fellow of the Linnaean Society and the Wernerian Natural History Society. The title-page to the last volume has not been bound in. A nice uniformly bound set.Nissen ZBI, 1141; Dean I, 330. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Walter Scott
Kelso: One of the eight-hundred copies originally published in 1802, which sold out within it's first six months of publication. Consisting of historical and romantic ballads collected in the southern counties of Scotland, founded upon local tradition. Featuring the original engraved frontispiece to volume one. Collated complete. Scott's interest in the folk traditions of the Border region stemmed from early childhood stays at Sandyknowe, when he heard ballads from the lips of his grandmother Barbara Scott and his favourite Aunt Jenny. As an older boy, he thrilled to the medieval ballads collected in Bishop Thomas Percy's Reliques of Ancient English Poetry. Scott began collecting ballads himself in yearly trips to the Borders from 1792 onwards. He first had the idea of publishing a collection in 1796, but it was not until he renewed contact with his old schoolfriend, the printer James Ballantyne, that the idea bore fruit. In 1799 Ballantyne had published An Apology for Tales of Terror which contained ballads by Robert Southey, Matthew 'Monk' Lewis, John Aikin, and Scott himself. He now welcomed the idea of publishing a volume devoted entirely to ballads, a genre rendered newly fashionable by Wordsworth's and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads. The volume's success laid the foundations of James Ballantyne's career as a printer. 'I shall ever think', he wrote, 'the printing the Scottish Minstrelsy one of the most fortunate circumstances of my life'.
