        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM BENJAMIN RUSH TO HIS WIFE]

      Philadelphia[,PA], 1803. 2 pp. 4to. In a blue half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt with red leather labels. Old folds. Light soiling. Top half of left edge repaired with newer paper. About very good. 2 pp. 4to. A Signer Loses His Umbrella. A familiarly chatty letter written by Philadelphia Signer of the Declaration of Independence Dr. Benjamin Rush to his wife, Julia, who is away from home, relating the latest news and gossip from Philadelphia.  He mentions Julia's "little farm," writing of improvements to be made there:   "Marcus is now employed in planting strawberries.  He shall attend to your directions.  Your flowers & fruit trees seem to languish for your eye & hand.  I have engaged a surveyor to go out & run the line which is to add an acre or two to your little farm.  In the course of the stream which issues from the spring, thro' the wood, there is a pleasant & shaded spot on which I shall direct a covered bath to be made.  It will furnish ice in winter, and a bath in summer."   He continues with some news of family and neighbors, writing, "I have passed another busy day - two hours of it were pleasantly spent at Mr. Wister's at Germantown in the company of three of the best informed ladies of Philada. Young Mr. Wister relapsed a few days ago, but is now I hope mending.  Capt. [John] Barry is better, but not well.  My country patient at Frankford is out of danger.  I visited him yesterday - probably for the last time. ... John unkindly took my umbrella with him & left me a note to buy another for myself.  I have not time to do so, nor do I know where to borrow one.  From the want of it I have suffered from the rain this evening.  To him it was an article of dress; to me it was a necessary of health.  I never expect to see it again."  The Captain Barry referred to is the famous naval officer considered as second only to John Paul Jones.   Rush closes the letter with a post script about a party given by the governor, attended by Jerome Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon.  "Governor McKean gave a splendid tea party this evening in honor of Jerome Bonaparte.  Miss Eliza Smith who attended it, says he is a modest, thoughtful well behaved young man."  Jerome Bonaparte was a lad of eighteen but deeply in love with Elizabeth Patterson of Maryland.  They waited until December 1803 to be married, when Jerome would have passed his nineteenth birthday.  The marriage was later dissolved by Napoleon in 1805.   Benjamin Rush was a delegate to the Continental Congress and signed the Declaration of Independence; he later served as surgeon general for the Middle Department of the Continental Army, though he resigned in outrage over the disorganization and corruption in army hospitals.  Rush established several medical facilities in Philadelphia, including the College of Physicians in 1787.  "Writing prolifically over nearly half a century, Rush was the first American physician to become widely known at home and abroad.  More than any other physician, Rush established the reputation of Philadelphia as a center for medical training...His drive to understand mental illness and render the treatment of mental patients more humane earned Rush the title 'father of American psychiatry'" - ANB.   A delightfully chatty letter from Rush to his wife.

        Compendio historico de la fundacion, progresos, y estado actual de la ciudad de Cartago en la provincia de Popayan

      1803 - One of the earliest works printed in Guadalaxara, describing a city in Colombia. 1803. Guadalaxara. Mariano Valdes Tellez Giron. In 4to (203 mm x 140 mm). 1 [blank] + 14 ff. + x + 47 + [2] + 50 + 1 ff. + 44 + 2 ff. + 3 folding plates. Handsome contemporary, probably American, calf; spine tooled in gilt, red lettering piece, lower compartment lightly stained. A very fine copy, very bright and crisp, edges tinted red. First edition. A very scarce work, printed in Guadalaxara, and finely illustrated with three plates: La Milagrosisima Imagen de Nra Sra del Rosario de Chiquinquira, Nra. Sra. de la Pobreza, que se venera en la Yglesia del Convento de San Francisco de Cartago, Reyno de Santa Fe. As to be expected, books printed in Mexico on Colombia are scarce, specially one of Colombian´s history and description of one of its cities. Cartago is a city in Colombia, in the Valley of Cauca, one of the oldest in the country; Popayan s the Capital city of the Cauca. A very handsomely printed book, and one of the first books to have been printed in Guadalaxara; profits from three strikingly engraved plates. The author was a high-ranking colonial official, Major of the Audience at Guatemala, and Vice Dean of the Audience at Guadalaxara. A scarce work, only one copy has appeared for sale in the last 30 years, before that, a copy in 1947. Medina, Guadalajara 44. Palau, 41362. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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

      - 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 ÒWeatherhouseÓ plate designed by Blake. HayleyÕs 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 Òthe 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 caseÓ (Essick, William BlakeÕs Commercial Book Illustrations, 86).

        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. Je les ai choisi pour avior L'avantage de traiter avec vous.From Captain Loring to General Rochambeau, Cape Francois Nov 19thI have to aquiant you on the subject communicated to me by General Boyè and Commodore Barre, of your desire to negociate for surrender of Cape Francios to his Britannic Majesty, that I send for the purpose, and to know your final determination, Captain Moss of his Majestys ship La Desiree, in order to agree with your wishes, insomuch as is consistent with the rights of his Britannic Majesty on that point. Captain Bligh "Treaty of Amiens"It was at this point that Captain Bligh of the Theseus, was to complete the evacuation of the Cape and Capitulation was entered into of General Boyè and Captain Barèe.In 1811 General Boyè, was released in a prisoner exchange, he will return to the service of the Empire.In 1812 , he was appointed Chief of Staff of the 12 th Division ( Partouneaux ), the 9th Corps (Duke of Belluno ) and made ??the Russian campaign .During the retreat from Russia, at the Battle of Berezina , harassed by the Cossacks, his division was believed to be following the 9th General Corps Duke of Belluno, in fact follows a Russian division. 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. His younger son Yakov Yakovitch Boyko was a major in artillery of the Russian army. He died in 1909 and was buried with his father.

        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."

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.
