        An Inquiry into the Nature and Origin of Public Wealth, and into the Means and Causes of its Increase

      Edinburgh: Arch. Constable and Co., , 1804. Octavo (204 × 126mm). Contemporary mottled calf, decorative gilt roll border to covers, neatly rebacked, marbled endpapers and edges, in a leather book form box. With large folding able at the end. Armorial bookplate of Robert R. Livingston of Clermont to the front pastedown. Corners worn, paper stock lightly toned, occasional spotting and the odd blemish. A very good copy with an excellent presentation. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed on the half title; "To Mr Livingston, Min[ister] Plen[ipotentiar]y ... to the French Re[p] From the Author". Robert R. Livingston (1746-1813), a founding father of the United States, was a member of the Committee of Five who drafted the Declaration of Independence. In 1789, as Chancellor of New York he administered the presidential oath of office to George Washington, and as U.S. Minister to France from 1801 to 1804, he negotiated the Louisiana Purchase. Lauderdale "has been hailed as a forerunner of Keynes, in as much as he argued that over-saving was a distinct possibility and that public spending was required to offset private thrift if stagnation was to be asserted" (Blaug.) In the present work Lauderdale questioned Adam Smith's theory of the relationship between labour and value, maintaining that wealth was a compound of labour, land, and capital, and value was a compound of utility and scarcity. He argued that capital was capable of harnessing productive labour to make profits by meeting market demand, and that such profits resulted only when there were no legislative restraints on commerce and no burdens, such as Pitt's sinking fund to redeem the national debt. "Lauderdale's importance in the history of economics lies, not in his conclusions, but in the fact that he was the first in England to consider systematically the fundamental conceptions on which the science is based. In this respect alone he is in advance of Adam Smith" (Palgrave II, p. 574).

        Travels in China, Containing Descriptions, Observations, and Comparisons Made and Collected in the Course of a Short Residence at the Imperial Palace of Yuen-Min-Yuen, and on the Subsequent Journey through the Country from Pekin to Canton

      London: T.Cadell and W. Davies, 1804. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Quarto. pp. ix, [3], 632, with 8 plates (including frontispiece), five of which are hand-colored. Recent full calf with new endpapers, original red spine label preserved, three armorial ink stamps on the top edge of the text block. Tissue repair to first page of table of contents, ocasional foxing and minor soiling in the margins; overall quite clean and sound. "Barrow accompanied Lord Macartney's mission to the court of China in 1792 as his private secretary, and the present account...is one of the best illustrated English travels on China. The eight plates are from drawings by William Alexander, who also accompanied the embassy and later published his own work. The strict exclusion of Europeans by the Chinese emperors had left China very much terra incognita to the western world well into the nineteenth century. Barrow was an excellent observer, and the text contains a number of descriptions and illustrations of C hinese artifacts and novelties. Among these are a plate depicting musical instruments, extensive renditions of Chinese melodies in western western notation, and a long description, with illustration, of an abacus" (Hill 62). Historian Michael Adas notes that Barrow "interspersed descriptions of his travels and personal experiences with lengthy discussions of varying aspects of Chinese culture....His judgments on the quality of Chinese life and material culture tended to be favorable at the beginning of his residence in China but grew more and more disparaging as time passed." Unlike Jesuit writers who praised the sophistication of Chinese science and culture, Barrow argued that a once-great civilization had been on the decline since the fifteenth century, providing "an implicit contrast between static, past-minded, backward China and the continually improving, foreward-looking, industrializing states of Europe (Adas, Machines as the Measure of Man pp 179-180). Cox I:346; Cordier 2388.

        Relation de la recÈption faite ? Bonaparte

      Relation de la recÈption faite ? Bonaparte, Premier Consul de la RÈpublique franÁaise et PrÈsident de la RÈpublique italienne, dans la ville d'Anvers, lors de son passage en l'an XI. Anvers: Chez AllebÈ, An 12/1804. 8vo. Original rose marbled boards, leather spine label. Spine rubbed. (iv), 83p (list of participants pp 74-82), 1p errata. Woodcut on title leaf (by Dilg et Dupl. Sc) and woodcut image pasted on verso. Dampstain on bottom of titleleaf (perhaps from onlay paste) [With:] An entry card to the Ball described in this fÍte book for Claire Herbrant and Jean Herbrant, signed by Dirven, Seuninckx and Jacq. Hebrant. // In 1803 Napoleon made a tour of the northern departments of France visiting Dunkereque, Bruges, Gand (Ghent), Anvers (Antwerp) Brussels and LiËge, all prefecture towns of their respective departments, all which had been recognized as belonging to France in the Treaty of LunÈville of 1801. The narration covers the highlights of each of the dayís events. Interesting too are the details of Josephine, Madame Bonaparte, who has ceremonial appearances throughout the week. // The major event of the visit was an elaborate parade on the first of Thermidor (19th July, 1803). Along with the a huge giant "figure colossale de 26 ? 28 pieds de hautî (p34-35). Also there was a rock enclosing the forge of Vulcan with ten cyclops, who were forging "l'anneau d'une alliance Ètroite." Their hammers rang out an anvil chorus, while the smoke of an "encens exquis" issued from the forge. Then came a whale twenty-seven feet long and fifteen high (p.37). A ship named Deux NÍthes was followed by the chariot of Neptune who was represented by a man (probably Napoleon). Next to him was the goddess Thetis in the guise of a young girl. They occupied a chariot framed by seahorses in the background, the whole led by two sirens. //According to Withington, many of the ceremonial displays were from earlier entries or based on them. The giant was from the 16th century dating from the times of Henry VIII ìconstruite en 1534, par le peintre Vanasselt, sous la direction du grand Rubbens. (pp 34-5). The car of Agriculture, or "l'enlevement de l'Europe" was built in 1767 but may have been based on an earlier float; it carried about forty young girls, in white, "placees en amphitheatre.î Withington thinks that the entry resembles closely the English royal-entries of the sixteenth century although modernized with appropriate allusions to the city's guest of honor.

        LOUISIANA

      S. Lewis & Tanner, 1804. - 7.625" x 9.5." The classic map of 1804 produced by British cartographer Aaron Arrowsmith and American cartographer, Samuel Lewis (later cartographer for Lewis & Clark's famous map of 1814), and Henry S. Tanner, another major American cartographer. Produced for Arrowsmith and Lewis' famous work, A New And Elegant General Atlas, Comprising All The New Discoveries To The Present Time, with 63 maps, published by John Conrad & Co., Philadelphia, 1804. The map covers much of today's North America, from northern Canada to the north central part of Mexico. The eastern extremity includes eastern Hudson Bay southward through today's Michigan to the Gulf of Mexico, and extends westward to the Pacific Ocean. Areas identified on the map include: New North Wings, New South Wales, British Possessions, Nenawek, Christinaux, United States, W. Florida, North New Mexico, New Albion, California, New Navarre, and New Biscay. Natural features include: Pacific Ocean; Hudson Bay; Gulf of Mexico; Gulf of California; various mountain ranges including Mns. de la Roche or Stoney Mns; numerous lakes including Slave Lake, Winnipeg Lake, Lake Superior, and Lake Michigan; and numerous rivers including Churchill River, Assiniboils River, Missouri River, River Plate or Shallow River, Mississippi River, and River del Nord. Native tribes located are Chippiwans, Beaver, Blood, Blackfoot, Assiniboils, Mandane, Aracaris, Poncas, Mahas, Wolf, Sioux, Cansas, Panis, Otos, Republic, Chae, Acjou, Bouchara, Plume, Red, Blue, Arar, Chagutenne, Ayoas, Missouri, Osages, Mentons, Paniasa, Cadodaquis, Panimo, Akansa, and Adays. Several forts and towns or settlements are shown. Of this classic map of "Louisiana"/North America, cartographic scholar, Carl Wheat, in Mapping The Transmississippi West, 1540-1861 says: This map is "the most ambitious, and despite its many infirmities, the most informative published attempt to portray the West and Northwest of what is now the United States"."It is important to recall that when this map was first produced no one yet knew the location of the Mississippi source, much less where the Missouri took its rise, the extent of its major tributaries, the true nature of the Rocky Mountains or the complexities that they encompassed, not to mention the singular character of the Great Basin, or the vast extent of the Columbia and Colorado river systems.West of the Mandan villages all was conjecture"."Many secondary streams in the Missouri system are named for the first time. Besides the area mentioned in the title, the map shows Central Canada even more fully and correctly than the Missouri Valley." ".the rendering of the Platte and Upper Missouri River basin forms the most important, as well as the most interesting, feature of this map for present purposes"."it is perhaps the most illuminating statement of the ideas respecting the West that prevailed down to the date of publication of Lewis & Clark's own map" in 1814. With only the slightest of soiling/rubbing, this important map is in near fine condition, and nicely matted for framing.

        Genius Genuine A fine part in riding a race, known only to the author with a full account of the Prince's horse Escape running at Newmarket on the 20th and 21st days of October 1791

      London: Sold for the Author, 232 Picadilly, and no where else, 1804. Second Edition, with half-title. Printed by D.N. Shury, Printer, Berwick Street, London. vii, [3], [11]-170 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary half black calf and marbled boards. Bookplate of Kenneth Baker Schley. Minor rubbing, near fine. Samuel Chifney (1753?-1807), inventor of the Chifney bit, was a prominent jockey and trainer, and, states the DNB, "He was long considered the best horseman of his time". In 1790 he was engaged as "rider for life" by the Prince of Wales (later George IV), and on October 20, 1791, rode the Prince's horse, Escape, at Newmarket, narrowly losing, although the Prince, not having placed a bet, was not out of pocket. The following day, under Chifney, Escape won: this time, both the Prince and Chifney had placed bets, and the Prince realized a substantial sum. Chifney was called before the Jockey Club, but nothing was proved against him. However, as the result of a resolution by the Club, the Prince sold his stud and left the turf. Chifney continued to race, but in 1806 he left Newmarket for London and never returned, dying in poverty the following year. In 1795 Chifney published this book in an attempt to clear his name and to raise money--the work of 170 pages in wrappers was priced at an extraordinary five pounds. This second edition appeared in 1804 and was still priced £5/ as stated here on the half-title (the price has been struck through ink and re-priced one pound). A VERY RARE WORK, DEALING WITH ONE OF THE CENTURY'S GREATEST RACING SCANDALS.

      New York: Printed by G. & E. Waite, No. 64, Maiden-Lane, 1804. First American edition. x, 531 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Modern half brown morocco and cloth by Sangorski & Sutcliffe.

Dr. Alexander Anderson (1775-1870), America's first wood engraver. Pomeroy identifies the fourth edition as the source from which Anderson worked. "It was his major work in these first years." The book is important in America as the means by which many Americans became familiar with the Bewick Quadrupeds, and also because Anderson and other engravers "in the future used Bewick's illustrations as an encyclopedia from which they could draw in order to depict animals both native and foreign." Roscoe devotes a substantial appendix to this edition.Hugo, "Some of the cuts in this volume are truly wonderful copies of the originals, and an inspection of them would stagger not a few who are accustomed to attribute to Bewick every engraving of more than ordinary ability produced at the time when these were published."Many Australian as well as American animals are delineated.

        Catalogue de tableaux des écoles française, italienne, flamande et hollandaise, composant le cabinet de M***, dont la vente publique se fera le 11 brumaire an XIII, dans la grande salle de la maison Bullion, rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau

      Paris: Chez Michel Vauthier, peintre et graveur, rue des Fossés M. le Prince [...] et chez Thiery, Commissaire-Priseur, 1804 (November 11). FIRST EDITION. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo. 15, [1] pp., 46 lots, all prices realized in contemporary MS. Stiched as issued in original self wrappers. An excellent copy, the paper quite fresh and clean. Scarce: only one other copy is recorded. Very interesting sale catalogue of a small but significant collection of paintings, formed by an anonymous collector (but see below). The collection contained paintings by Joseph Vernet, De Marne, Locatelli, Wouwermans, Ruysdael, William van Romain, David Teniers the Younger, and others. Our copy has all prices realized in contemporary MS. It almost certainly belonged to someone closely associated with the sale, either Michel Vauthier, or the Commisseur-Priseur Thiery. On the last page are MS notes that identify the paintings that "I am keeping," with two different amounts that this individual owes one "M[onseiur] Mery," the owner / consignor. This provenance information is unique to our copy and is hitherto unrecorded. The sub-title of the catalogue reads: "La collection que nous présentons au public est d'autant mieux choisie qu'elle est faite par un amateur pratiquant lui-même les arts." It is a remarkable fact that the name of "Vauthier" is written in the margins of the catalogue next to the lots that are indicated on the last page as the ones "I am keeping." The MS annotations read: "Note de ce que je garde: Vernet 800. Thibaut 55 [followed by 10 other paintings, with prices] "de ce que je dois à Mons[eiur] Méry" [totalling 3905 livres. Below this figure is the note] "A remettre à M. Méry: Le Tenier [the Younger] vendu 960 (lot 25: the "Bonnet Blanc"), Une Vierge de Salso Faratti 48 (lot 20), Le Ruisdael vendu 1000 (lot 28). Tableaux qu'il m'a remis pour vendre total 2008". Concerning the "Bonnet Blanc" by David Teniers II (now Private Collection, Germany): the earliest provenance information known to J. Smith, writing in 1842 (sic!), was the Christie's 25 June 1839 sale of the Collection of John Ford (i.e. Forbes), Esq. ("Catalogue Raisonné of the Works of the Most Eminent Dutch Masters" Vol. 9, p. 443, no. 115). The present 1804 sale catalogue remained unknown to him and to all subsequent researchers, including the leading authority on Teniers II, Margret Klinge, for which see her provenance information on the "Bonnet Blanc" painting in her "David Teniers the Younger: paintings, drawings. [Ghent]: Snoeck-Ducaju & Zoon, [1991], citing only a sale at Amsterdam, 20 April 1803, no. 72 (to "Gruiter"). Not in CCFR; Worldcat lists only the GRI photocopy (sic!) which was reproduced from the copy at the Bibliotheque d'art et d'archeologie, Paris (Lugt, No. 6863).

        The Punishments of China [With:] 23 original watercolor drawings after the plates

      London: William Miller, 1804. Reprint of 1804 second edition, plates watermarked 1819. 22 hand-colored aquatints after Pu-Qua with accompanying text leaves in English and French. Folio. Full contemporary green morocoo, gilt, a.e.g., rubbed, head of spine damaged. Ex-library with shelfmarks, bookplate, and perforated stamps. Accompanying watercolors very good, removed from album, some cropped and matted, some light creasing, waterstaining affecting one image. Reprint of 1804 second edition, plates watermarked 1819. 22 hand-colored aquatints after Pu-Qua with accompanying text leaves in English and French. Folio. With 23 Original Watercolors. With a fine set of 23 original watercolors by Chinese artists for export to Europe, illustrating the various "Punishments of China." The accompanying watercolors are captioned in a later hand, indicating that they were used for the plates in Punishments. Though they closely resemble the illustrations in Punishments, it is unlikely that these were the very models used for publication. These watercolors, drawn on European paper, were certainly produced in a Chinese shop (possibly Pu-Qua's) for export to Europe. They show signs of having been removed from an album, which was how these drawings were commonly sold. Scenes of Chinese punishment and costumes were popular themes at the time.

XXIV,248; 267 pp.First Dutch edition, translated from the Paris edition of 1798; first published in Philadelphia in 1797: Voyage de l'ambassade de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales Hollandaises vers l'empereur de la Chine. - Van Braam Houckgeest (1739-1801) made a voyage to southern China for the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and lived in Macao and in Canton until 1773. After American independence, he became a merchant and owner of a rice plantation in Charleston, South Carolina and acquired citizenship of the United States. He is often described as the first American to travel to Beijing and to be presented at the Imperial Court. In 1788 he returned to Canton as director of business for the Dutch East India Company, and in 1794 they appointed him to be the second member of their first mission to the Emperor of China. This embassy to China was intended to rival that of Lord Macartney, and headed by Isaac Titsingh, who was thus the first European ever to proceed as a duly accredited envoy to the courts of both Peking and Edo. Titsingh's journal was published by Frank Lequin in 2005. 'Braam Houckgeest's account of the ambassy is of particular value for the detailed descriptions of many parts of China which had never before been visited by Europeans. The original manuscript was written in Dutch and translated and edited by Moreau de Saint-Méry' (Löwendahl 700). - (Small stamp of previous owner J.C. Koopman, on title-pages). - A fine and rare copy of a most important work.Cordier, BS, col. 2351; Lust 503; Tiele 182; Cat. NHSM I,p.509; Landwehr, VOC, 551; Howgego I, T45.

Bookplate on front pastedown. Loss to portions of thirteen leaves, affecting some text, reinforced with tape, dust-soiling to titlepage, dampstaining to some leaves toward the end of the text. Lacking pp.19-30. A battered copy of a great rarity. An extraordinarily rare account of travels in Louisiana, the Mississippi Valley, and the Illinois-Ohio country, especially interesting in that the travels practically coincide with the Louisiana Purchase. The work has been attributed to either Wante or G. Boucher de la Richardiere. "The author - whoever he was - travelled extensively throughout the lower Mississippi Valley" - Howes. "There is also much on the Illinois-Ohio country, but the body of the work has to do with the Louisiana Cession" - Eberstadt. Incomplete, but quite rare, as Howes accorded it a "b" rating. The great Simon Shwartz library of Louisiana material had a copy, sold for $15 in 1926, in blue morocco with an inked name on the titlepage. This is perhaps an additional Shwartz copy not auctioned at the time. The only other copy we can find any record of selling is the one listed by the Eberstadts in 1953. HOWES W87, "b." SABIN 101246.

        To the Free and Independent Electors of the East Riding of the County of York, and of the Counties of Durham and Simcoe.

      York, Upper Canada 1804 - [York, Upper Canada: s.n., May 1804]. Broadside. 32.5 × 19.5 cm. The text begins: "GENTLEMEN, The period at which the present Parliament must necessarily meet its dissolution having nearly arrived; I am induced to offer myself as a Candidate to represent you in the ensuing Parliament ." 3 paragraphs of text with the last four lines: "I have the Honor to be | GENTLEMEN, | your devoted humble Servant, | WILLIAM WEEKES." Laid paper backed on linen, with folds. This copy of this broadside has writing in two places: (1) in dark black ink at the top left are 5 inconsequential lines ("10 plain squares | 28 plain fish ."); (2) 12 lines after the text as follows: "[hand pointing to the right] Mr Weekes cannot yield to the impression that any anonymous Address, or the Excertions of a puny officiate shall sway the free and independent Electors of this Riding into an acquiescence in any imaginary Representation. He trusts that those whom he has addressed himself feel so strict a Sense of their Rights and of the necessity of asserting them as not suffer the Shadow of a Shade or the Phantom of a visionary candidate to divert their Suffrage from the making of such a claim as may cause those Rights to be more generally known and more fully asserted. York 14 May 1804." References: Fleming, Upper Canadian Imprints,1801-1841, no. 34. A lawyer and political figure in Upper Canada, William Weekes was born in Ireland. He journeyed to the United States, later settling at York in 1798. In 1804, he was defeated by Angus Macdonell in the riding of Durham, Simcoe, and 1st York. Macdonell died the same year aboard a ship that sank in a storm on Lake Ontario. In 1805, Weekes finally won his seat in the Provincial Parliament. In 1806, in court, he referred to the recently deceased Lieutenant Governor Peter Hunter as a "gothic barbarian". After a dispute with William Dickson on this remark, Weekes challenged him to a duel. On 10 October 1806, Weekes was mortally wounded and died the next day.
