        As Kentucky?s 2nd Governor, James Garrard answers charges against him relating to a land transaction, claiming ?fraud was used in the purchase??

      "Document Signed ?J Garrard? as 2nd Governor of Kentucky, four pages, 8? x 13?. Bourbon County [Kentucky], March 5, 1804. On laid paper. Witnessed by ?Laban Shipp.? Strengthened at mid horizontal folds. Fine condition.Sworn statement by Gov. Garrard answering ?a Bill of Complaint? against him by Philemon Thomas relating to a bond he executed to John Tanner ?for the conveyance of 130 or 140 Acres of land being part of a Preemption of 1000 Acres granted by the Commonwealth of Virginia? to him ?as assignee of William Holiday.? Garrard claims that he ?was induced to make said sale by the false representations that were made to this Deft. [Garrard] by the aforesaid Tanner, that the said Tanner had at the Date aforesaid acquired an interest in a Military Survey on the Ohio river in the name of John David Woolper for which interfered with this Defendants Preemption aforesaid and as this Defendant held the eldest legal title ... the Deft informed him that he did not mean to disprove of his claim provided Woolpers Military Survey left within his claim as much as 250 Acres as it would make an agreeable little plantation...?Baptist preacher John Taylor in his ?Baptists on the American Frontier? (1820s) wrote about the above situation. In part, ?Taylor and Tanner around 1790 had bought from James Garrard part of a thousand acres adjacent to the Woolper grant. Known as the preemption of William Holliday, this land had been surveyed for him in 1785 ... In 1785 Holliday assigned part of his interest in this acreage to Garrard; later the balance went to Philemon Thomas. Tanner and Taylor knew that the Holliday land was overlapped by the prior claim of John David Woolper...?"

        Booshuana Womaen Manufacturing Earthen Ware. N. 23 [for African Scenery and Animals at the Cape of Good Hope.]

      Daniell London 1804 - Hand-coloured aquatint. Some slight fading, otherwise in good condition. Dimensions: 350 by 472 mm (13.75 by 18.5 inches) African Scenery has been described as "the scarcest and most valuable of the large atlas folios of South African illustrations.". Daniell arrived at the Cape on 9th December 1799. He was appointed by Lieut.-General Dundas, who became his patron there, and to whom the first volume is dedicated, to act as secretary to a mission to the Booshuanas. The expedition eventually reached Lataku, at that time the limit of European exploration, and was the source for Daniell of the drawings for the present plates. Although the plate imprint states that the plates were engraved by the artist, Sutton argues forcefully that they were in fact engraved by William Daniell. "The African Scenery . is comparable in skill and execution to the Oriental Scenery. The coloured plates represent local scenery, animals singly or in groups in their natural surroundings, native types, and views of kraals. It may safely be said that never before had drawings of animals been presented so beautifully in their natural scenery . [other plates] are valuable records of early itinerant life in South Africa."

        A List of the Officers of the Militia of the United Kingdom

      London: War Office, 20th Aug., 1804. With an Index. The Tenth Edition [Year]. Octavo (228 × 138 mm). Contemporary red morocco, green morocco label, flat spine with gilt compartments centred on attractive sun-in-splendour tools, elaborate panels to the boards, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. A little rubbed at the extremities, but remaining extremely handsome. First edition. These militia lists are extremely uncommon, COPAC records a single copy of this year at Oxford, and just a scatter of copies for other years, OCLC adds Brown and the University of Missouri. Issued the year after the breakdown of the Peace of Amiens. Bookplate of Ernest, Duke of Cumberland, fifth son of George III and Queen Charlotte. Ernest studied at the University of Göttingen and then trained in the Hanoverian Army, fighting "with courage in Flanders and the Netherlands against the French" (ODNB). commanding the Hanoverian light battalion of grenadiers at Villers-en-Cauchi in 1793, and seeing action at Tournai - where he was wounded - and Nijmegen in 1794. He regarded himself as a professional soldier, but after 1796 never again held command in the field, despite repeated efforts to obtain active service. At the time of the issue of this list he was intimately involved in home defence, having been made commander of the Severn District in 1803, with responsibility for the forces in and around the Severn Estuary. And when war with France broke out again, his elder brother, the Duke of York appointed Ernest to the more important Southwest District, comprising Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire. On the death of his brother William IV in1837, he ascended to the throne of Hanover. Uncommon, and with excellent provenance.

        Plate LXXV

      London 1804 - The publication of the Pomona Britannica marked the re-emergence of the acclaimed English artist George Brookshaw (1751-1823) into the public eye after a total disappearance of nearly a decade. A successful cabinetmaker with the patronage of the Prince of Wales, Brookshaw suddenly disappeared from view in the mid-1790&#146;s, and with the Pomona Britannica he not only trumpeted his return but demonstrated the skills he had acquired in a new metier: botanical art. Characterized by the highest standards of production and artistic quality, the superb illustrations that Brookshaw drew and engraved for the Pomona Britannica remain perhaps the most sumptuous and distinctive of the early 19th century. Brookshaw&#146;s fine illustrations make excellent use of the rich, modulated tones that the aquatint process creates. The elegantly arranged and richly colored fruits emerge from deep brown backgrounds or float on a softly mottled light ground, creating a presence unlike that of any other botanical illustrations. Brookshaw asserts in the preface that the Pomona Britannica was an enduring work created for the enjoyment and edification of &#147;succeeding generations.&#148; The beauty and uniqueness of his illustrations guarantees the lasting value of this most exceptional work. This hand-colored aquatint engraving, Plate LXXV, features six types of figs. A folio size, measuring 22" x 18", this engraving is in very good condition with light staining and foxing in the margins. The figs are individually detailed and made naturalistically with the shadows and highlights creating a three dimensional effect.
