        The Pitcher Plant

      London 1803 - Dr. Robert John Thornton (1768-1837) hand-colored engraving, 21.5" x 18", The Pitcher Plant, is from his book titled The Temple of Flora, or Garden of Nature, Picturesque Botanical Plates of the new Illustration of the Sexual System of Linnaeus. Thornton began to indulge his lifelong love for botany in 1799. Determined to surpass the Germans in scholarship and the French in printing artistry, he planned a book of philosophic and literary distinction, illustrated by some of the best painters working in Britain. Within the book there are five frontispieces, portraits and allegorical compositions with thirty-two plates of flowers. Thornton made up each set with twenty-nine or thirty-two in varied arrangements. The lengthy text was primarily written by Thornton himself, where artists were commissioned to design and paint the images. The majority of designs were done by Peter Henderson and Philip Reinagle. The intaglio plates - a varied combination of mezzotint, aquatint, line and stipple engraving, finished with watercolor -were executed by Bartolozzi and other English masters. The title notwithstanding, few of the plates are of scientific interest. It is the forceful stylization of flowers, together with their historical, allegorical and/or fanciful backgrounds (prescribed by Thornton) that place the Temple of Flora among the greatest botanical books of all time. With only slight tearing on the left edge due to binding, The Pitcher Plant plate is brilliantly colored and in excellent condition.

Sehr seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe. - Vgl. Wheeler/Gift I, 630 und Roller/Goodman II, 474 (beide französ. Original-Ausgabe). - Das Werk bildet eine Umarbeitung für deutsche Naturforscher, da die Original-Ausgabe lediglich bloße Materialien zu einer Geschichte des Galvanismus enthielt und unter diesem Titel dem Bearbeiter Reinhold zufolge gar nicht hätte erscheinen dürfen. Die Gründe dafür waren größtenteils unvollständig abgedruckte französische Original-Abhandlungen, mangelnde Vertrautheit des Verfassers mit dem Galvanismus, Zusammenstellung der Abhandlungen ohne jeden wissenschaftlichen oder chronologischen Plan. "Statt der weggelassenen Aufsätze bereicherte ich meine Schrift mit andern ausländischen Gelehrten. Zwar finden sich unter diesen einige, die von Volta z. B., welche gewiß alle Physiker kennen; doch sind diese zu wichtige Materialien für die Geschichte des Galvanismus, als daß ich nicht jedem Tadel zu entgehen hoffen dürfte, wenn ich sie, die bis jetzt doch nur zerstreut sich finden, in einer der Sammlung dieser Materialien gewidmeten Schrift zusammenstellte. Endlich habe ich, um einige Ordnung in das Ganze zu bringen, diese Schrift in drey Abschnitte getheilt, von welchen der erste den einfachen, der zweyte den verstärkten, der dritte den auf Heilkunde angewendeten Galvanismus enthält. In jedem habe ich die einzelnen Aufsätze, so viel als möglich, in chronologischer Ordnung aufgeführt" (Vorrede). - Zu Beginn etwas, sonst nur vereinzelt leicht stockfleckig.

        Lettre à son Excellence, Monsieur l’Amiral Duckworth.

      A Saint-Domingue, le 3 Thermidor, an 11, 22 juillet 1802 (i.e. 1803). 1803 - [4] ff. de papier bleuté in-folio (320 x 209 mm.), [3] manuscrits à l’encre brune. (Petites taches et traces de rousseurs). Lettre portant la signature du fameux La Touche-Tréville (1745-1804), l’un des plus brillants marins français de la deuxième moitié du 18ème siècle, l’un des meilleurs capitaines de la guerre d’Indépendance américaine et membre de la Cincinnati, qui imposa à Nelson les seuls échecs de sa carrière. La missive, datée de juillet 1803, fut certainement l’une des dernières qu’il rédigea sur le continent américain, elle est adressée au capitaine Duckworth (1747-1817), alors Gouverneur de la Jamaïque, pour le supplier de le laisser rentrer en France sous pavillon diplomatique, pour des raisons de santé. Il s’agit des premiers signes de la maladie qu’il contracta à Saint-Domingue et qui lui coûta la vie deux ans plus tard. La Touche-Tréville commença sa carrière maritime lors de la Guerre de Sept Ans, à l’issue de laquelle il fut promu Enseigne de Vaisseau en 1768. Il quitte alors la marine et n’est réintégré au Grand Corps qu’en 1777 en tant que lieutenant de vaisseau. A la suite de sa capture de quelques navires anglais en Manche, il est nommé chevalier de l’Ordre de Saint-Louis et désigné pour conduire Lafayette à Boston en 1780. A son arrivée en Amérique, il est chargé par le général des Touches de la défense de Rhode Island, où il dirige la construction de plusieurs batteries. Il prend part à de nombreuses batailles, notamment celle du Cap Henry, et croise avec La Pérouse au large de l’île Royale. Cette campagne lui vaut sa nomination par brevet au grade de capitaine de vaisseau en juin 1781. Il s’illustre tout particulièrement dans une mission qui lui est confiée en 1782 : apporter, à bord de deux frégates l’Aigle et la Gloire, trois millions de livres en Amérique pour les insurgés et du matériel pour le marquis de Vaudreuil. Après avoir coulé un vaisseau anglais de 74 canons au large des Bermudes, il rencontre, à l’approche des côtes américaines, une escadre anglaise commandée par le commodore Elphinstone. Il parvient malgré tout à pénétrer dans la baie du Delaware et à envoyer dans les canots des frégates les passagers, l’argent et les dépêches qu’on lui avait confiés. Il est contraint de saborder la frégate et est fait prisonnier de guerre, mais cette action est considérée comme une victoire et lui vaut d’être admis à la Cincinnati. A son retour en France, il est envoyé en Méditerranée, puis destitué de son grade par les Révolutionnaires en 1793. Il est réintégré en 1794, mais reste sans affectation jusqu’au Consulat. En 1801, Napoléon Bonaparte lui confie le commandement des forces navales de la Manche. Il expose au Premier Consul un plan de traversée de la Manche en juin et en août, il repousse par deux fois les attaques de Nelson qui tentait de détruire la flottille. Ces victoires valent à Latouche-Tréville la considération de Napoléon et celle de Nelson qui, comme on le voit dans sa correspondance, le craignait. A la même époque, à Saint-Domingue, Toussaint Louverture qui après avoir défait les Espagnols en 1794, puis chassé les Anglais en 1798, s’est débarrassé des envoyés Français, et des Mulâtres menés par André Rigaud, le dernier à contester son autorité, s’est rendu maître de l’île en 1800. Le 3 juillet 1801, il promulgue une constitution autonomiste qui lui confère les pleins pouvoirs à vie. Napoléon décide alors d’envoyer le général Leclerc en 1801 pour le contrer : Leclerc et Villaret-Joyeuse partent avec 10 000 hommes, et Latouche-Tréville part de Rochefort à la tête d’une escadre de 23 000 hommes pour appuyer cette attaque. La guerre est longue, car Toussaint a arrêté une stratégie de défense de marronnage qui consiste à brûler les villes et se retirer dans les montagnes, mais les Français s’emparent des villes et se rendent maîtres de toute la côte à la fin avril 1802. C’est lors de cette campagne que Latouche-Tréville tombe malade et les médecins insistent pour qu’il rentre en France le p

Bon exemplaire.Edition originale, donnée par les célèbres Ballanche, de cette pièce très importante pour l'histoire de Lyon. En effet, Claude Martin (1732-1800), quoique au service de l'Angleterre depuis 1760, après avoir fait partie des troupes de Lally, était natif de Lyon : en même temps qu'il assurait sa promotion dans l'armée de la Compagnie des Indes, il mena diverses opérations financières extrêmement lucratives, si bien qu'il fut vite à la tête d'une immense fortune, estimée à dix millions de livres au moment du déclenchement des hostilités contre Tippu Sahib en 1790. A sa mort, une partie de ces richesses fut consacrée à fonder des établissements de bienfaisance à Lucknow, Calcutta, Chandernagor, et Lyon. Chacune de ces villes reçut 700 000 francs à cet effet, et Lyon se vit en plus attribuer 12 000 francs de rente pour la libération annuelle de citoyens emprisonnés pour dettes.

        Essay on the Principle of Population Or, A view of its past and present effects on human happiness; With an inquiry into our prospects respecting the future removal or mitigation of the evils which it occasions. A new edition, very much enlarged.

      London Printed for J. Johnson.by T. Bensley 1803 - The Economics of Population MALTHUS, T[homas] R[obert]. An Essay on the Principle of Population; Or, a view of its past and present effects on Human Happiness; With an Inquiry into our prospects respecting the future removal or mitigation of the evils which it occasions. A new edition, very much enlarged. London: Printed for J. Johnson. by T. Bensley, 1803. Second edition, enlarged and revised. Quarto. viii, [4], 610 pp. Contemporary calf, skillfully rebacked to style and with corners renewed. Spine decoratively tooled in gilt compartments with burgundy morocco gilt lettering label. Endpapers renewed. Occasional light foxing. Title-page with publisher's diagonal paper flaw crease. Overall very good. A completely revised and greatly expanded edition of the most influential work on population ever written. Malthus published the first edition of his Essay in 1798, and was apparently unprepared for the torrent of controversy that his ideas provoked. His response to the public outcry was to spend the next five years refining and expanding his theories for this second edition, so much so that "in its present shape, it may be considered a new work, and I should probably have published it as such, omitting the few parts of the former which I have retained, but that I wished it to form a whole of itself, and not to need a continual reference to the other." (preface) Malthus' basic argument--that population increases geometrically at a greater rate than does the means of subsistence, which increases arithmetically--was one of the earliest modern economic and social theories, and his contention that it would eventually become necessary for society to impose some form of restraint on over-population provided the premise for heated socio-economic debate for almost two centuries.

        MANUSCRIPT LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THE FRENCH COLONIAL PREFECT OF LOUISIANA, LAUSSAT, TO CAPTAIN GUILLERMO DUPARC, COMMANDANT OF THE POINT COUPEE POST, TELLING HIM OF THE SPANISH RETROCESSION OF LOUISIANA TO THE FRENCH, AND INSTRUCTING HIM TO TAKE THE NECESSARY MEASURES TO EXERT CONTROL OVER HIS PARISH].

      New Orleans. December 10 [i.e. 9], 1803 [17 Frimaier an 12]. - [1]p. letter on a folded folio sheet, with engraved scene entitled "Republique Francaise" at the top of the first page. A few manuscript notes and calculations on the second and fourth pages. Old folds. Some soiling on fourth page, a bit of ink bleedthrough. Very good. [with:] [PRINTED INVITATION, SENT BY THE FRENCH COLONIAL PREFECT OF LOUISIANA, LAUSSAT, FOR A GALA IN HONOR OF THE SPANISH COMMANDER IN LOUISIANA, AND IN ANTICIPATION OF HANDING THE LOUISIANA TERRITORY OVER TO THE UNITED STATES]. December 11, 1803 [19 Frimaire an XII]. [1]p., printed on a folded quarto sheet, addressed in manuscript on the fourth page. Small tear in upper right corner of first page, half-inch split along one fold. Very good. The pair in a half morocco clamshell case, cloth chemises. A remarkable pair of documents, announcing to a local French commander the completion of the transfer of Louisiana from Spanish to French control, and inviting him to an upcoming gala in honor of the local Spanish commander and the forthcoming transfer of Louisiana Territory to the United States. The letter and invitation are both addressed to Captain Guillermo Duparc, commandant of the Point Coupee military outpost, just northwest of Baton Rouge. Pierre Clément de Laussat, the last French Colonial Prefect of Louisiana, arrived there in late March 1803, just a month before the Louisiana Purchase Treaty was signed in Paris (on April 30). Spain had ceded Louisiana to the French in the Treaty of San Ildefonso of 1800, though the provisions of the treaty had remained a secret; his immediate responsibility was to oversee the transfer from Spain to France. Laussat had been hearing rumors since his arrival of a potential sale of Louisiana from France to the Americans, and those rumors were officially confirmed to him in August. In May 1803 the Spanish commanders of Louisiana, including the Marquis de Casa Calvo, announced the forthcoming retrocession of Louisiana from Spanish to French control, a process that was formally completed on November 30, 1803. In the present letter, dated just nine days after the completion of the Spanish retrocession, Laussat writes Duparc, sending him (in translation from the French) "the order which I have issued concerning taking possession of the French Republic of Louisiana in your district. I reached an agreement on it, in advance, with the Commissioners of S.M.C. [Sa Majeste Catholique, i.e. King Charles IV of Spain] dated the 12th of Frimaire [December 4, 1803]." Laussat writes that, along with the proclamation, he is sending Duparc various decrees regarding the circumstances of French control and asks him to redouble his efforts for tranquility, peace, and order in his district. The proclamation and decrees mentioned by Laussat are not present with this letter. The manuscript letter is on Laussat's official letterhead, with the seal of the French Republic and the engraved text, "Marine. Coloniea. Louisiane." Interestingly, Laussat has annotated the pre-printed portion of the letter, changing his title from "Colonial Prefect of Louisiana" to "Colonial Prefect Commissioner of the French Government," reflecting the new political situation after the Spanish hand- over of the territory to the French just nine days earlier. The printed invitation is also addressed to M. Duparc, and is very rare, located by Jumonville in only one other copy, at the Historic New Orleans Collection. Dated December 11, 1803, it invites Duparc to a soiree hosted by Laussat on "next Thursday," the 15th of December. The party was being held to commemorate the transfer of Louisiana from Spanish to French control, and its impending transfer to the United States. More specifically the party was in honor of the Spanish commander, the Marquis de Casa-Calvo, brigadier of the Spanish armies, in thanks for the Spaniards' efforts in recent days, and as a sign of the union and friendship between the Spanish and French governments. On December 20, 1803, just eleven days after w

An essay on the principle of population; or a view of its past and present effects on human happiness . . . 4to. viii, [4], 610pp. London: T. Bensley for J. Johnson, 1803. 285 x 225 mm. (uncut). Original boards, rebacked, endpapers renewed, one corner restored. Tape repair to last leaf, minor foxing, but a very good copy, preserved in a cloth case.Second edition, extensively revised and four times larger than the original edition of 1798. The 1803 edition was the first to have Malthus's name on the title, and the first to contain numerical data supporting his claim that populations increase by geometrical proportion but food supplies only increase arithmetically. "Malthus was one of the founders of modern economics. His Essay was originally the product of a discussion on the perfectibility of society with his father . . . Thus the first edition (published anonymously) was essentially a fighting tract, but later editions were considerably altered and grew bulkier as Malthus defended his views against a host of critics . . . The Essay was highly influential in the progress of though in early nineteenth century Europe [and] his influence on social policy was considerable . . . Both Darwin and Wallace clearly acknowledged Malthus as a source of the idea of the 'struggle for existence'" (Printing and the Mind of Man 251). Garrison-Morton 1693. Kress B4701.

        Chart of the West Indies and Spanish Dominions in North America. By A. Arrowsmith. 1803. To Admiral John Willett Payne (A distinguished Native of the West Indies.) Vice Admiral of the Coasts of Devonshire & Cornwall. Treasurer of Greenwich Hospital. Comptroller General of the Household of the Prince, &c. &c., &c. This Chart is respectfully Dedicated by his most obedient Serv[an]t. A. Arrowsmith. Hydrographer to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales. 10 Soho Square.

      London, Published A. Arrowsmith, No.10 Soho Square, June, 1st, 1803. - West Indies Large engraved map, on four sheets, joined as two, fine original outline hand-colour, folds reinforced with linen. Large and detailed map of the Caribbean and Mexico. First edition, stretching from Mexico's Pacific coast to the Leeward Islands, and so incorporating the whole of the Caribbean, with the dedication to Admiral John Willett Payne. This monumental map was at the time of publication, the most accurate survey of the region. Arrowsmith drew on the best available information, most notably the pre-Revolutionary War surveys of John William Gerard De Brahm (Georgia), Bernard Romans (Florida), and the Spanish coastal surveys for Texas and the Gulf of Mexico. Streeter mentions one particular chart the 'Carta Esferica' of 1799 - the first to name the bays of Galveston and Bernardo - from which Arrowsmith based much of the coastline, but notably with the longitude of the Sabine Pass greatly improved. The later editions of Arrowsmith's map only extend to the east coast of Mexico, presumably because Arrowsmith published his large map of Mexico in 1810. John Willett Payne, 1752-1803, rear-admiral, born on St. Kitts in the West Indies, would seem to have been the perfect dedicatee. In peacetime he became the private secretary, comptroller of the household, and personal friend of the Prince of Wales. The DNB states "There is no doubt that he was the associate of the prince in his vices and his supporter in his baser intrigues". In 1780 he became Member of Parliament for Huntingdon. Returning to the sea in 1793 he played a distinguished part in the battle of the 'Glorious First of June', 1794, for which he received the gold medal. In 1799 he was promoted to the rank of rear-admiral, and in August he was appointed treasurer of Greenwich Hospital, where he died on 17 Nov. 1803. Stevens and Tree only list two editions, 1803 and 1810, but Phillips lists an 1811 and an 1816 edition. Stevens & Tree 89 (a); Streeter Texas 1301; Philips Maps 1061 (1811 edition); Tooley, MCC 68, #185.

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1803. <p> From a Royal Library </p><p>Berthollet, Claude Louis (1748-1822). Essai de statique chimique. 2 vols., 8vo. viii, 543 [1]; viii, 555 [1, errata]pp. Paris: Firmin Didot, 1803. 197 x 125 mm. Tree sheep, gilt spines, French royal arms in gilt on front covers. Occasional scattered foxing, but fine otherwise. </p><p>First edition. Berthollet attempted to provide chemistry with an adequate theoretical foundation so that its experimental results could be analyzed on the basis of theoretical first principles. He gave a thorough critique of the contemporary oversimplified concept of the law of chemical affinity, which had not yet been properly examined; Berthollet&#39;s main contribution to the development of this concept was his proof that chemical affinity was relative, varying with the physical conditions-quantity, temperature, solubility, pressure, physical state-accompanying a chemical experiment. He introduced the highly important concept of "chemical mass"-relative affinity combined with the mass of reactants in a chemical combination-to give the total force with which a given quantity of a substance reacted with another. He was probably the first chemist to perform an exhaustive investigation of how physical conditions affect chemical reactions, creating a molecular model of matter to explain the effects of temperature and density on chemical reactions.

        Cession of the District of Matavai in the Island of Otaheite, to Captain James Wilson for the use of the Missionaries sent thither by that Society in the Ship Duff is Most Respectfully Dedicated, by their most obedient servants Willm Jeffrys and Co.

      London: 1803 - The title is preceded by the phrase "To the Treasurer and Directors of the London Missionary Society, this print representing the Cession." Black & white mezzotint, as issued. 29 1/2" by 23" with sml. margins. Includes the engraved title. London, January 1st, 1803. For the Benefit of the Missionary Society. A large separately-issued mezzotint by Bartolozzi after the original oil painting by Smirke which is held by the National Library of Australia. Laid down on linen, which nicely stabilizes some slight creases & small marginal tears, two of which affect the caption, one barely into the plate. One sml. hole repaired. Overall, the picture is very bright, with warm glowing shades of gray nuancing the gathering of missionaries. England was enamored with Omai, the first Polynesian native to visit London, who accompanied Capt. James Cook after his 2nd voyage. He was seen as a living example of the "noble savage". However, Omai returned to the South Pacific in 1776 without being converted to Christianity, which was seen as a missed opportunity. To rectify that situation, the London Missionary Society was established, and in 1796, the ship Duff was dispatched with a group of 18 missionaries to Tahiti, under the command of Captain James Wilson. Wilson is seen in the foreground holding his hat, facing Chief Pomare. The Queen is held in the air on the shoulders of natives. At least 24 Tahitians & 17 Europeans are pictured on Matavai Bay. Nan Kivell & Spence, p. 324, National Library of Australia website. A very scarce print.

        Do Tal, Ellora] Dotali

      Published as the Act directs by Thos. Daniell, Howland Street, Fitzroy Square, London 1803 - A stunning view of the cave-temple, known as Two-Storeyed, Do Tal, from Thomas and William Daniell's celebrated book "Oriental Scenery". The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered one of 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. The sixth part of Oriental Scenery is twenty-four plates based on drawings by James Wales, primarily of the excavations at Ellora. The title of this section was Hindoo Excavations in the Mountain of Ellora , near Aurungabad in Decan. The mountain contains 34 "caves" that were created to serve as monasteries and temples for Buddhists, Hindus and Jains, each religion having several spaces. Do Tal, here called Dotali, was one of the Buddhist "caves". It is three stories high and was built in the 8th century. Abbey Travel II.420 no.32; Martinelli and Michell, India: Yesterday and Today , p. 15, no 4. Aquatint by Thomas Daniell after James Wales, coloured by hand, on 'Whatman' wove paper.
