        Signed document General Boyé 1 page, large 4to;

      Signed document "Boyé", 1 page, large 4to; Cap, 14 September 1803. Partially printed, with letter-head. Two stamps. Minimal loss on folding, text not affected; good condition. Rare. Appointment, signed by Boyé, of Huillier, as captain adjutant-major, as reward of his service and military achievement. The life of General Boyé was amazing. Twice prisoner of the English, he was released in 1811 and entered in the Emperor's service. He commanded the 12th division during the campaign of Russia. Prisoner of the Russian army, he was taken in charge by Lev Tolstoy and married Tolstoy's daughter, Anna, with whom he had three children. Released in 1814, he remained in Russia, where he worked for the tsar. The colony of Saint-Dominigue, roughly the same geographical land mass that is today Haiti, was the richest colony in the West Indies and probably the richest colony in the history of the world. Driven by slave labor and enabled by fertile soil and ideal climate, Saint-Domingue produced sugar, coffee, cocoa, indigo, tobacco, cotton, sisal as well as some fruits and vegetables for the motherland, France.When the French Revolution broke out in 1789, there were four distinct sets of interest groups in Saint-Domingue, with distinct sets of interests and even some important distinctions within these many categories:His Military CareerIn 1790, he was a captain in the National Guard of Caussade until September 1791 .On 20 December 1791 , he was committed to Bordeaux as a volunteer aboard the state frigate, "The Overseer", commanded by Captain Fercey, by order of Girardin Wing Commander towards Santo Domingo .In Santo Domingo (now Haiti ) on 14 January 1793 , he was appointed lieutenant, deputy general adjutancy. Approved by the Commissioner, Governor General Mr. Hall. The 1 st June of the same year, he was appointed Captain first class, Assistant to the General adjutancy Santo Domingo, Patenting and Civil Commissioners, Polverel Sonthonax.On 15 July 1793 , acting commander of the place of Port-au-Prince , by commission of the commander of the Western Province, approved by the Civil Commissioner, Ploverel.On 28 January 1794 , he took the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, the second battalion of the Western Legion of patent and civil commissioners Polverel Sonthonax.Then, 9 April 1794 , he became commander holder of Port-au-Prince , by civil commissioners and Polverel Sonthonax.10 November 1795, he became military commander of the district of Jacmel , by commission of General Beauvais , commanding the western department.In the year 1800, he was sent to Santo Domingo, in charge of the government close by the French State. Appointed Brigadier General and confirmed at that rank by Bonaparte in 1804 .In the same year 1803 Boye' was taken prisoner by the English and taken to Jamaica, where he was detained until the arrival of the army.Arrested ??in Santo Domingo, as against Interior Rebels, and as against the Spaniards and the English, the campaigns of the year II, III, IV, V, and VI (late 1793 to late 1797). He commanded in chief three expeditions, one against the inside of the rebels, and the other two against the English and emigrant's handsets, which he removed several entrenched camps around the Port-au-Prince . He has also been charged with various political missions that he fulfilled with honor and success.Ref; NAVAL CHRONOLOGY 1803 By James Ralfe..James Ralfe (fl. 1820-1829) was a historian best remembered for this comprehensive history of British naval involvement in the Napoleonic Wars. First published in 1820 and intended as a successor and continuation of Captain Isaac Schomberg's history of the navy, Naval Chronology, Ralfe's work is remarkably detailed, using first-hand accounts of naval engagements taken from interviews with officers and sailors in addition to contemporary official naval documents. Chronologically by year, Ralfe notes and explains major parliamentary proceedings relating to the navy, lists the serving flag officers for the given year, and describes naval battles and engagements, arranged according to location. Transcripts from the Naval Chronology of 1803 for the surrender of Boyè as follows;Papers Relating to the Surrender of Cape Francios ?" Transmitted by Sir J. T. Duckworth, From General Rochambeau to Captain Loring.Monsieur,Pour prevenier l'effusion du sang et sauver les dedris de l armee St. Domingue, j ai L honneur de vous envoyer deaux officers chargès de mes instrutions à l effet d'entrer en accommodement avec vous; Le General de Brigade Boyè, chef de l'etat major-general, et le Captain de Vaisseau Barre', sont charges de vous remettre ma Lettre.

All of the 12th division or what remains of it is made ??prisoner.Then transferred to the city of Kazan (Tatarstan) in Russia and seriously ill during his transfer which was done on foot.It happens in this city between life and death. It is pitied by a rich landowner in Kazan : "Lev Tolstoy Vasilyevich This gives him hospitality is cared for by a young girl Anna, who is the youngest daughter of the landowner He receives 1,800 rubles... a year as General prisoner of war."Jacques Boye heals and, despite his 47 years, wife Anna who will give him three children: Pietr, born in 1814 , Eugenia, born in 1816 and Yacov, born in 1820 .He was released in 1814 and settled near Saint Petersburg to Negin where he bought a house, Grafskaya Street, home of Boyko. He gave private lessons in French and Military Sciences and worked as Governor in the Ralle baron.In 1820, he wrote to the minister of war and puts himself at the disposal of the King, asking for permission to stay in Russia, collecting retirement Field Marshal and emoluments of his Legion of Honor.In 1822 , he was sent by the King of France in Santo Domingo, a country he knows well, having lived 1792 to 1804 as project manager. After his return from Santo Domingo, he returned to Russia to join his wife Anna and his children. He took Russian citizenship, changes his name and is now called Yakov (Jacques) Petrovich (son of Peter) Boyko (name widespread in Russia nearest Boye) and married Orthodox religion.He worked in a private practice of the Tsar as an official assigned to special missions, then he became adviser of State to the Tsar . His two son are military.General Jacques Boye died in St. Petersburg in 1838 and is buried at Smolensk cemetery in that city.

        APPENDIX TO AN ACCOUNT OF LOUISIANA, BEING AN ABSTRACT OF DOCUMENTS, IN THE OFFICES OF THE DEPARTMENTS OF STATE, AND OF THE TREASURY

      [Washington. 1803].. [2],xc pp. plus folding table. Modern half calf and marbled boards. Minor foxing. A very good copy. The true first edition of the separately-printed Appendix of Jefferson's AN ACCOUNT OF LOUISIANA..., one of the most important books in Western Americana. Although the Philadelphia, 1803 edition has been called the first edition of this work, it is in fact the second, issued after this undated, unimprinted Washington edition. A contemporary note in the Yale copy of the larger work, AN ACCOUNT... is inscribed "Sam. Mitchell Washington Nov 14, 1803." On the verso of the title the same hand has written, "This pamphlet was written by Mr. Wagner, chief- clerk in the office of Mr. Madison Secretary of State; the materials were collected by the President of the U.S. [Mr. Jefferson] who received them in answer to certain interrogatories put by him to discreet and intelligent men in Louisiana. The various answers to these executive queries were put into the hands of Mr. Wagner to be compiled and digested in the Congress by Mr. Jefferson on 15th November, 1803." The APPENDIX... bears a similar signature on the titlepage: "Sam Mitchell Nov. 28 1803." The Philadelphia edition was printed from the Washington edition, and in the next year a flood of second, third and fourth generation editions from Baltimore, Providence, Albany, Carlisle, Wilmington and Raleigh, N.C., appeared, indicating the nation's eagerness to overcome the general lack of previous information on Louisiana. The Appendix contains much valuable information on Louisiana, including a printing of Le Baron de Carondelet's laws dated June 1, 1795, which concludes with several pages on the correct policing of slaves.

        Autograph letter.

      Frankfurt, 26. XI. 1803.. 8vo. 3 pp.. In French, to an unnamed friend: "It's been two weeks, my dear friend, since I last got a line from you, although I need your friendship more than I ever did before. My daughter has had a fever for a week, and here I am, among strangers, surrounded by German doctors in an inn, and well, I feel quite miserable. Thank God, she hasn't been in danger so far; if she were, I couldn't survive it. I wrote to you from Metz when I left, and from here too, to offer you my [apartment]. How is it that I didn't get at least a note from you? You know quite well that all I know about life, I have learned from you and it's all the more true now that I live abroad. Have you seen Villers? Tell him that one must be mad to live anywhere else than in France when one is French. The Germans are quite kind to me, though, and I already have a chest full of poems and notes. I have been writing down some of my reflections about all that, which might be of interest if ever see my friends again, since nothing will ever make me publish one line for any other public than the French. Please do write to me; consider that if you spent five minutes at it every night, the result would be a week of relief for me. But I have never been able to give you an idea of how much your letters please me; you would not be so sparing with them if you knew. Kindly remember me to all those who care for me". - Madame de Stael wrote this letter at the beginning of her exile. Her duel with Napoleon, stemming from her recalcitrance to his influence, had led to his orders that she was not to reside within forty leagues of Paris. This occurred in the fall of 1803. After considerable delay she decided to go to Germany. She travelled in the company of Benjamin Constant, by Metz and Frankfurt to Weimar, arriving there in December. She stayed in Weimar during the winter, and then went on to Berlin.

        HISTORY OF THE RENOWNED DON QUIXOTE DE LA MANCHA.Translated By Several Hands: and Published By the Late Mr. Motteaux. Revised Anew From the Best Spanish Edition, by Mr. Ozell: With Explanatory Notes From Jarvis, Oudin, Sobino, Pinedo, Gregorio, The Royal Academy.&c.&c.

      Edinburgh Alex. Lawrie and Co 1803 - 4 volumes. Early English Edition. Small 8vo, handsomely bound in contemporary polished calf, the spines with gilt bands separating compartments decorated with a central gilt decoration, lettered in gilt in one compartment, numbered in gilt in another, the cover borders roll tooled in gilt. (2), 262; 246; 276; 285. A very pleasing set. Handsome and very well preserved with only minor age evidence. A FINE AND HANDSOME SET OF THIS CLASSIC WORK. Motteux’s translation is one of the most famous of the period, and here, the book is presented in pleasing period bindings still preserved in unusually nice condition. There is a ‘Life of Cervantes’ preceding the text as well as the author’s preface. DON QUIXOTE ranks among the greatest literary works of Western Civilization. "What had begun as a simple satire on the tedious chivalric romances of the time broadened into a sweeping panorama of Spanish society. It was for this, the liveliness, and the gibes at the famous, which one it instant fame. Its larger claims, the subdued pathos, its universal humanity, were slower to be appreciated. But within months Don Quixote and Sancho Panza had become legendary.Don Quixote is one of those universal works which are read by all ages at all times, and there are very few who have not at one time or another felt themselves to be Don Quixote confronting the windmills." (PMM). The content of the notes is of significant interest to the reader as they have been taken from the most important and scholarly editions prepared by individual academicians and the Academy. In addition, significant content was gained from researching the old histories and chronicles with which the Spaniards of the 16th century were familiar. Thus, many of the period poetical nuances have here been included in English for the first time. Blackwood’s said of the translation that "This is, we think, out of all sight, the richest and the best. . Motteux, the translator of Cervantes and Rabelais, possesses a native humour which no other translator that we ever met with has approached." And William Prescott said that "The most popular versions in English are those of Motteux, Jarvis, and Smollett. Perhaps the first is the best of all. It was by a Frenchman who came over to England in the time of James the Second. It betrays nothing of its foreign parentage, however, while its rich and racy diction, and its quaint turns of expression, are admirably suited to convey a lively and very faithful image of the original. The slight tinge of antiquity, which belongs to the time, is not displeasing, and comports well with the tone of knightly dignity which distinguishes the hero."

        The Triumphs Of Temper. A Poem: in six Cantos. The twelfth edition, corrected. With New Original Designs, by Maria Flaxman.

      - Chichester: J. Seagrave for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1803. Roy. 8vo (9.5 x 5.75 ins.), xii, 165 pages. With 6 engraved plates by William Blake after Maria Flaxman. Later half green morocco, gilt top, other edges untrimmed, an excellent copy with wide margins. A large-paper copy, unusually clean and with fine dark impressions of the plates. First edition of BlakeÕs engravings after these dreamy and slightly surreal illustrations. Bentley, Blake Books, 471A. Essick, William BlakeÕs Commercial Book Illustrations, XLIII. DNB notes: ÒPossibly his greatest achievement, however, was his didactic poem Triumphs of Temper (1781), which Ôwas to reform the entire feminine mind of England by the adviceÕ (Bishop, 53). This allegorical work aspired, in rhyming couplets, to teach young women the virtues of a pleasant nature. Its advice was heeded by some: Emma Hamilton thanked Hayley Ôfor the lessons she had learnt from the poemÕ (P. Jaffe, Drawings by George Romney, 1978, 44) and asked Romney to inform Hayley that his poem Ômade me Lady H. É for Sir W. minds more temper than beautyÕ (ibid.). Triumphs of Temper ran into fourteen editions and proved to be the most durable of all his publications.Ó [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Life and Posthumous Writings of William Cowper... By William Hayley

      3 vols. Chichester: J. Seagrave, 1803-04. 3 vols., 4to, (10, table of contents), [iii]-xiii, [1]-413; (8), [1]-424; (2), [1-iii], iv-xxxi, 416, (4), (6), [1]-122, (24) pp. With 5 plates and an engraving in the text, one designed and engraved by Blake, the others engraved by Blake after other artists. Original polished brown half calf, marbled paper over boards. Backstrips of each volume with two black morocco labels lettered in gilt. Hinges and joints of vol. III just starting. Some spotting and foxing along edges of text blocks and within the text itself, sometimes within the image. Minor rubbing and wear at extremities. Armorial bookplate of the Corbollis family on front pastedown of each volume. Excellent, original copies in fantastic overall condition. Second edition, final state of the ?Weatherhouse? plate designed by Blake. Hayley?s position as the most respectable and considerable literary figure who had known Cowper made him the inevitable choice to write the definitive work. Blake was living with his wife at Felpham and she helped him make and print the engravings for their old friend and patron Hayley, however ?the plates for vols i-ii are much more clearly and darkly printed in the second edition (so indicated on the title pages) than the first. Perhaps many of the lines were cut more deeply when the plates were converted in their second states, but more careful inking and printing could account for the considerable tonal differences. One hesitates to blame Mrs. Blake for the poor impressions of the first states, but that may indeed be the case? (Essick, William Blake?s Commercial Book Illustrations, 86). Bentley, Blake Books, 468 A. Easson & Essick I, VII.

        [CONSECUTIVE RUN OF THE FIRST FOURTEEN SESSION LAWS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO, 1803 - 1816]

      Chillicothe and Zanesville. 1803-1816.. Fourteen volumes, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Modest shelf wear, a few labels lacking. Small ink library stamps and embossed blind-stamps on titlepages, occasional ink ownership inscriptions on titlepages, some toning and scattered foxing, occasional tanning, some contemporary ink marginalia, a handful of leaves trimmed close, a few small tape repairs or reinforcements. Overall, a good set. A strong run of the laws of the State of Ohio from the first session of the General Assembly to the fourteenth of 1816, covering the crucial years of 1812-15 when Ohio was the Western theater of the War of 1812. The impact of the war can be seen right away in the 1812 session laws; the very first act provides "blankets for the Ohio militia, now in the service of the United States." Later in this session, the assembly passed an act "for the encouragement of Volunteers in the North Western Army of the United States" after the "lamentable disaster, which has happened to that part of the North Western Army of the United States, lately under the command of Gen. James Winchester." The Army of the Northwest was a unit of the American army formed at the outset of the War of 1812 and charged with control of the state of Ohio, the Indiana Territory, Michigan Territory, and Illinois Territory. The "lamentable disaster" refers to the Battle of Frenchtown, fought near the River Raisin in Monroe, Michigan, which was a massive loss for the American army in the War of 1812. The day after the battle ended, British troops and Native Americans massacred wounded soldiers in what became known as the River Raisin Massacre, additionally killing many more troops in a subsequent forced march to Fort Malden. Though Frenchtown resulted in more casualties than any other battle during the War of 1812, it became a rallying cry for the American army. In addition to these acts, the 1812 laws include several resolutions related to war activities within the state, including resolutions authorizing the governor to procure arms, one regarding "the conduct of the corps of volunteers from this state, during and previous to the late campaign, under the command of general Hull," and a resolution requesting that the services of the Ohio militia be paid by the United States. The resolution regarding Gen. Hull refers to another disastrous event for the American effort earlier in the war, the Siege of Detroit, where the American army surrendered Fort Detroit to the British in August 1812. Here, the resolution commends the Ohio corps of volunteers "for the patriotism, bravery and general good conduct, which they evinced, during their late arduous and disastrous expedition." A couple of years later, the assembly passed a resolution to thank Andrew Jackson, his officers, and his men, for their "gallant defence of New Orleans," the decisive battle of the war. Such a consecutive run of session laws for Ohio is unprecedented in the market, with only an occasional single volume coming up for sale. Most of the session laws were printed by various printers in Chillicothe, but the ninth and tenth General Assemblies were held at, and the session laws printed in, Zanesville. All are rare. A marvelous run of early Ohio state laws. The imprints included here are as follows: 1) ACTS OF THE STATE OF OHIO: FIRST SESSION OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, HELD UNDER THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE, A.

        The Narrative of a Voyage of Discovery, performed in His Majesty's Vessel The Lady Nelson.

      C. Raworth, London 1803 - Quarto, with a large folding plate, a folding chart, a coloured plate and five other engravings; presentation inscription to George Prevost from author, inscribed verso of frontispiece; preliminary leaves a little toned, yet fine and uncut in recent straight grained red morocco, spine gilt with bands. Grant on Bass Strait and the Hunter. First edition: an uncut presentation copy of one of the most important of the early Australian coastal voyages.This copy is complete with the uncommon leaf headed 'List of Encouragers' and is inscribed 'To Sir George Prevost with the Authors most Respectful Compliments'. George Prevost was a professional military officer of longstanding service in North America against the French. In 1811 Prevost was selected as both governor of Lower Canada, and governor-in-chief of British North America.James Grant was born in Scotland in 1772. In 1800 as a lieutenant in the Royal Navy he brought the Lady Nelson to Australia in company with HMS Porpoise. Over the next two years Grant made several voyages of discovery along the New South Wales coastline but is best remembered for his work in the Hunter River area which resulted in the establishment of Newcastle.The Lady Nelson was the first ship to be built with sliding keels to facilitate the exploration of shallow waters. Grant sailed her through Bass Strait, the first to do so from the west and, on arrival at Sydney, he discovered that he had missed Flinders to whom he was to deliver the ship and was sent back to survey the south-western coast of the continent, a task in which he was assisted by Francis Barrallier. However, because of the lateness of the season, the survey, which took place from March to May 1801, concentrated on Bass Strait and the Victorian coast instead. The chart of Bass Strait here was the first to be published of the newly-discovered Victorian coast.On his return to Sydney, Grant was sent to examine the Hunter River, and it was as a result of his report that Newcastle was established. Two engravings in this book illustrate the exploration by the Lady Nelson of the Hunter River: they were probably engraved after sketches by the colony's first professional artist, John William Lewin, who accompanied the expedition. The finest is the hand-coloured plate depicting the "Fringe Crested Cockatoo", which is present here in particularly fine condition. There are also portraits of the Aborigines Pimbloy (an alternative spelling of Pemulwuy, the great warrior) "in a canoe of that country" and Bennelong.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      München, 25. VI. 1803.. 1 S. Folio.. An Christoph Gottlob Breitkopf (1750-1800): "Mit Vergnügen und vollkommner Zufriedenheit über die mir gütigst zugesandten Exempl. der Concertante und des Quintetts melde ich Ihnen hiermit den richtigen Empfang derselben, und danke Ihnen zugleich verbindlichst für die, in Hinsicht der Dedication dabey gehabten Bemühungen. Was übrigens das Honorar betrifft, so soll es Ihnen nicht gereuen, es nicht früher mit mir stipuliert zu haben, denn ich überlasse es ganz Ihrer eigenen Willküre, indem Sie besser den Ihnen aus diesen Kompositionen erwachsenden Vortheil berechnen können als ich, und ich Ihnen bey der leisesten Forderung zu überrechnen befürchte. Ihrer Anfrage, ob ich nicht Harfen- oder Klarinett Kompositionen für die Red[aktion] der M. Z. beurtheilen möchte, beantworte ich mit der größten Bereitwilligkeit hiezu. In der Komposition habe ich, außer einem Anfang zu 3 schweren Klarinett-Duetten, nichts gethan, da ich aber wohl begreife, dass der Debit leichter Kompositionen stärker, mithin vortheilhafter für Sie ist, so werde ich gelegentlich 3 leichte Duette komponieren [ ]". - Backofen kam 1780 nach Nürnberg, wo er Musik, Kunst und Sprachen studierte. Seit 1789 unternahm er als Klarinettist Konzertreisen durch Spanien, Frankreich und Italien; 1794 kehrte er nach Nürnberg zurück und wurde erster Flötist. 1802 folgte er einem Ruf als Herzoglicher Kammermusiker und Direktor der Blasinstrumente nach Gotha, wechselte 1811 an die Darmstädter Hofkapelle, wo er neben der Flöte auch Fagott und Harfe spielte; er galt als Virtuose auf dem Bassetthorn.

        What Has Been. A Novel. By Mrs. Mathews ... Two volumes in one

      Alexandria, [D.C.]: Printed by Cotton and Stewart, 1803. First American edition. 312 pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Early 19th-century blue cloth (possibly remainder binding, ca. 1830?), with printed paper label on spine. Early owner's inscription of Charles James Grant, Palmyra, New York, on the front free endpaper. Binding a bit shaken, text occasionally spotted or stained; overall, however, very good. Calamities of a Female Writer First published anonymously by the Minerva Press in 1801, it has been attributed to Eliza Kirkham Mathews (1772-1802) on the basis of this American edition of 1803, whose title page reads "by Mrs. Mathews." According to the ODNB, "Her most important work during this period is the novel What has been (1801), a realistic treatment of the vicissitudes of a woman writer, the sole support of a husband and baby, as she peddles to publishers her 'found' manuscript about a doomed female forebear. In a reversal of the male Bildungsroman this novel features the motif of women wanderers coming of age as they starve and narrate their lives to other women ... . Several novels, thematically similar, appeared posthumously: Ellinor, or, The Young Governess (1809); Griffith Abbey, or, Memoirs of Eugenia (1808); and Adelaide, or, Trials of Fortitude (1813)" (ODNB).

        Testacea microscopica aliaque minuta ex generibus Argonauta et Nautilus ad naturam delineata et descripta ... Microscopische und andere kleine Schalthiere aus den Geschlechtern Argonaute und Schiffer, nach der Natur gezeichnet und beschrieben ...

      Wien, Camesianische Buchhandlung, 1803. 4to. (237 x 200mm). pp. xii, (4), 123, (1), with 24 handcoloured engraved plates. Later half vellum, spine with red gilt lettered label. Second edition of this very rare and early work on Foraminifera, the first edition of which was published 1798. It is especially valuable since Montfort designated in 1808 a large number of forms of Fichtel and Moll as the genotypes of many genera. These species were again discussed by Parker and Jones in 1860. A number of years ago the original collection of Fichtel and Moll, which was the basis of this book, was by chance rediscovered in the Museum of Natural History in Vienna. It may be stated that the authors gave, for that time, very accurate descriptions and illustrations of the treated species./"The publication of Fichtel & Moll (1798) on 'Testacea microscopica' has been of large influence on the investigation of the protozoan group foraminifera... Description and figures of these small foraminifera are of high standard. Therefore it is believed, that Fichtel & Moll have used the most modern optical instruments, invented in the second half of the 18th century. Connected with the search for the authentity of the collection the biography of the authors became of interest. Johann Paul Carl von Moll, born 1735 in Oettingen (Bavaria) was involved later on in the work of the Naturalien Cabinet in Vienna, the forerunner of the Natural History Museum. He died in Vienna, 1812. His co-author Leopold von Fichtel, son of an enthusiastic naturalist Johann Ehrenreich von Fichtel, became famous for his collection of objects of nature... He was born 1770 in Hermannstadt (Sibiu, Rumania) and died in his young years 1810 in Vienna" (F. Rögl, L.v. Fichtel und J.P.C.v. Moll und ihre wissenschaftliche Bedeutung, Wien 1982). The plates are meticulously drawn and finely hand-coloured./ /Nissen ZBI, 1351.

        Traite d'economie politique, ou simple exposition de la maniere dont se forment, se distribuent et se consomment les richesses.

      Paris, de l'Imprimerie de Crapelet, Chez Deterville, Libraire, An XI - 1803.. 2 volumes in-8, demi-veau havane de l'epoque a petits coins de velin, dos lisses ornes d'un riche decor aux petits fers de resilles, fers "Consulat", dentelles et palettes dores, pieces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin bordeaux, tranches mouchetees, (2) f., xlvj, 527 p. et (2) f., 572 p. Edition originale, rare, de cette brillante synthese de la pensee economique classique, qui obtint un succes considerable, sans doute le plus important de la litterature economique en cette premiere moitie du XIXe siecle et dont la portee fut immense. A sa sortie en 1803, l'oeuvre fut mal accueillie par Napoleon qui demanda a Say de reecrire son traite afin de le mettre en conformite avec l'economie de guerre basee sur le protectionnisme et les regulations. Devant le refus de l'auteur, l'ouvrage fut interdit et Say revoque du Tribunat en 1804, apres avoir passe quatre annees a la tete de la section financiere. Il fallut attendre 1814 et la chute de l'Empire pour qu'une nouvelle edition fut publiee. Organise en trois parties, selon le triptyque devenu classique en economie: production, distribution et consommation des richesses, l'ouvrage contient une defense de la politique economique liberale dans la lignee de l'ecole classique francaise, prefiguration de la revolution marginaliste et de l'ecole autrichienne d'economie. (Einaudi, 5118. 'En francais dans le texte', n° 207. Goldsmiths, 18616. Kress, B.4729). Provenance: Charles-Marie de Lafont du Cujula (1749-1811) litterateur, homme politique, maire d'Agen, depute du Lot-et-Garonne dans les Assemblees revolutionnaires et membre du Conseil des Anciens, avec ex-libris grave. Bel exemplaire, tres bien relie a l'epoque..

Contemporary quarter calf. Rebacked preserving spine, new endsheets. Very good. "Volney was an educated Frenchman of some distinction and merit . . . When he came to America, he was an experienced traveler, and anticlericalist, and an opponent of the philosophy of Rousseau. His departure from his native land was no doubt determined upon when the government he hoped to serve threw him in prison.. . . [This] work is not a narrative of travel. The author described in some detail the geography of the United States, noting topography, soil, climate, winds, and diseases" (Clark). The plates herein are sophisticated and are as follows: Plate I shows the composition of the earth in the areas of Pennsylvania and Ohio, and at Louisville, Ohio; Plate III contains two views of the St. Lawrence River, one showing the river stretching eastward from Lake Ontario, the other showing a waterfall (Niagara Falls); Plate II is a map of North America; and Plate IV is a large map (measuring 25-1/4 x 18-1/4 inches) of the United States East of the Mississippi by L Collin.
