        A General History of Quadrupeds. The Figures engraved on wood chiefly copied from the original of T. Bewick, by A. Anderson. With an Appendix, containing some American Animals not hitherto described

      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. Occasional light spotting, old signature of William S. Barnes on title. The first American edition of a classic work, with the cuts re-engraved (usually in reverse) from the original Bewick edition. 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.

        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.

      Haarlem, François Bohn, 1804-1806.2 volumes. Contemporary half calf, spines gilt with morocco title-labels. With 4 engraved plates (1 folding with 2 small tears repaired) by D. Veelwaard. 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.

Japanese paper, three of the documents range between 60 x 460 mm. to 60 x 1650 mm., the fourth measures 310 x 410 mm.), plus the orig. wrapper (somewhat frayed). N.p.: 1856

      Following the ratification of the Perry Treaty with Japan, Townsend Harris (1804-78), was appointed the first consul general to Japan in August 1855. Harris opened the consulate in Shimoda, near Yokohama, and carried a letter, dated 12 September 1855, from Pres. Franklin Pierce introducing his envoy to the Shogun in Tokyo. In this small collection, there is a contemporary copy of this letter translated into Japanese. With this is a drawing (310 x 410 mm.) which depicts both Harris and his Dutch translator Hendrick Conrad Joannes Heusken (1832-61), in formal military attire along with the American flag. The anonymous artist has also provided their official titles and their names phonetically translated. The third document is a letter written by one Tanigoro Ishibashi, a representative of what seems to be the Ise province. The letter, written to the anonymous lord's secretary -- Hoshiai Osumi no Kami -- describes the negotiations for a trade treaty between Japan and the U.S., the names of the participants, etc. Also mentioned is the visit of Harris to the shogun's castle in Tokyo on 6 October 1856, along with a list of the gifts presented to the shogun (a telescope, cut crystal glass, preserved sardines, peach compote (!), and two books describing birds and animals (probably Audubons).) The fourth document is a reply from Hoshiai Osumi no Kami to his correspondent in Tokyo asking him for frequent updates regarding Harris and the trade negotiations. These documents provide intimate details regarding one of the most important trade treaties ever ratified. Fine condition. .

        Meijin ranchiku gafu [trans.: Manual of Instructions on How to Draw Orchids & Bamboo]

      Numerous illus. in the text (several printed in delicate colors of blueish green, green, & brown, some printed in grey ink). 30 folding leaves; 40 folding leaves. Two vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers (worming towards end of Vol. II in gutter), orig. block printed title labels on upper covers (rubbed), stitched as issued. N.p.: 1804. This is a very rare drawing manual containing instructions with examples for portraying orchids and bamboo. It is a classic example of gafu, based on the Chinese idea of copying the masters. The woodcuts show how to draw with a brush the leaves of varying thicknesses and in which order, how to achieve an aesthetic balance, how to depict different species of orchids and bamboo, details of branches and leaves, how to illustrate the complicated center of the orchid flowers using a simplified brush stroke, examples drawn by various masters, etc. The delicacy of some of the woodcuts make them appear to be almost abstract art. Fine set of a most beautiful book. .

Benzenberg, a German astronomer, was one of a number of scientists at the turn of the nineteenth century who conducted falling-body experiments to demonstrate the earth?'s rotation and show the accuracy (or lack thereof) of theoretical predictions regarding the earth?'s motion.

Benzenberg was responding in part to the work of Italian physicist Giovanni Baptista Guglielmini (1763-1817), who published his experimental research on the earth?'s rotation in 1789 and 1792.

        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...?"
