        Outstanding Autographed Letter Signed about the Alexander Hamilton / Aaron Burr duel

      New York, 1804. unbound. very good. 2 pages (front and back), 8 x 6.25 inches, (New York), docketed in Charles Hamilton's hand, circa September 1804, to his brother, admonishing Aaron Burr and both participating "Seconds." in part: "...Mr. White or anybody else can do but little good by swearing at Burr. He has laid low the greatest man in America. Let him enjoy his triumph. I fancy his feelings are by no means available. He will die in obscurity and instead of having a monument created to his memory; it shall be said on his tomb 'There Lies The Murderer of Hamilton.' Mr. Pendleton and Van Ness were both at the . . . a few days since. The first had returned to Albany. Van Ness I know what is become of. He makes but short stops. I conjecture he has now and then a glimpse of the gallows in his waking as well as debilitating dreams. For he is an accomplice to the commission of murder, cannot be punished until his principal is convicted. Pendleton has nothing to do with until the murder but he is punishable by state law..." NOTE: "Seconds" were men chosen by the principal participants whose job it was to ensure that a duel was carried out under honorable conditions, on a proper field and with equally deadly weapons. In this case Nathaniel Pendleton was chosen by Hamilton to be his "Second" and to ensure that the duel proceeded with honor. William P. Van Ness fulfilled the same role for Aaron Burr. It is interesting that Foote would hold such animosity against Nathaniel Pendleton, a lifelong friend of Hamilton and the executor of his estate. Pendleton, aware of the fact that Burr was a marksman had actually tried to persuade Hamilton to apologize with dignity. Hamilton refused to budge. At the conclusion of the event Pendleton and Van Ness filed a joint statement to the world attesting to the fact that the duel was carried out with honor. A rare memento directly related to one of America's greatest tragedies. Small chip at the bottom margin not affecting the text; neat pencil notations at the top of the first page; evenly toned with neat folds.

        Organic remains of a former world. An examination of the mineralized remains of the vegetables and animals of the antediluvian world; generally termed extraneous fossils. [First editions of all three volumes: 1804, 1808, 1811, with 53 hand-colored plates].

      Published by the author 1804 - London, sold at various booksellers, quarto, three volumes: [vol. I (1804), xii, 471 p., 4 page index, frontispiece plate, title page vignette and 10 hand-colored plates; vol. II (1808), xiv, [2], 286 p., 5 p. index, 1 p. publisher's ads, colored frontispiece, title page vignette and 19 hand-colored plates with explanatory leaves; vol. III (1811), xv, [1], 479, [1] p., 5 p. index, colored frontispiece, title page vignette and 22 hand-colored plates with explanatory leaves]. ***CONTENT: Best known as the physician who distinguished the palsy disease that now bears his name, Parkinson (1755-1824) was also a well-read amateur paleontologist. This pioneering treatise introduced the ideas of Lamarck, Cuvier, John Farey and William Smith to the educated public, and was one of the earliest systematic attempts to identify and interpret fossils. Many well-known fossil types are superbly described for the first time and illustrated with striking hand-colored engravings. Volume I is devoted to the plant kingdom and describes coal, lignite and peat as well as petrified wood, ferns, stems, leaves and fruits, mainly from Carboniferous and Tertiary strata. A short history of paleontological knowledge is also provided. Volume II treats corals, sponges and crinoids, and introduces the Linnaean system of taxonomic nomenclature. Volume III describes a variety of higher fossil animals: echinoderms, mollusks, trilobites, arthropods, fishes, reptiles and mammals, and includes a splendid frontispiece of an Ohio mastodon tooth. Parkinson's evolving theoretical views were expounded in the third volume; he became increasingly convinced that many fossils belonged to extinct species. He boldly expressed his conviction that the "days" of the Biblical account of Creation actually represented very long periods of Earth history. This work was a monumental contribution to the understanding of British paleontology. ***CONDITION: This is a near Fine set bound in contemporary marbled boards with later calf spines bearing maroon, gilt-lettered leather title labels. The covers are clean and sound, showing only mild rubbing and edgewear. The backstrips are fully complete, as are the labels, with bright, bold lettering. Joints and hinges worn but holding, bindings very firm. Save for some offsetting and occasional very light foxing, the text pages are typically fresh, clean and bright. The colored plates are pristine, with bright, vibrant coloration. The only traces of previous ownership are some interesting penciled quotations from Genesis, inscribed on an endpaper of volume one in a contemporary hand; later scant pencil notes and distinctive bookplates of John W. Wells on the front pastedowns. The first edition of this work has become exceedingly scarce. This is a very handsome, fully complete set. BMNH 1523. Ward and Carozzi 1735. Domestic and international shipping will be extra for this set, but only at my cost. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Erstausg.

      Stade, Auf Kosten des Verfassers, 1804. - 319 S., Kl.-8°, Pappband d. Zt. mit goldgepr. Rückenschild Kloß 1962; Wolfstieg 42988; Caillet 11070; Ackermann V/319: "Selten". - Richtet sich gegen den 1780 in Österreich entstandenen Hochgrad-Orden der "Asiatischen Brüder". Nach Lennhoff,Posner,Binder war die Organisation "nichts anderes als eine Absplitterung der Rosenkreuzer, in der das kirchliche, ja auch christliche Element fast völlig ausgeschaltet war." Der Inhalt der Lehre sollte die "echten Geheimnisse und moralisch-physischen Aufschlüsse der Hieroglyphen des Ordens der Ritter und Brüder Freimaurer" beinhalten. Die Zahlensymbolik des Martinismus wurde dabei mit kabbalistischen Elementen der Rosenkreuzer verbunden. "Auf den beiden höchsten Ordensstufen werde Geistesbeschwörung getrieben". - Enthält: "Mystischen Allegorien und Hieroglyphen" in drei Heften [kmpl.] u. "Maurerische Phantasien und Träume eines Pilgers auf seinem Durchzuge durchs Land Bochim in den letzten sieben Monaten des Jahres 1803, nebst etlichen ernsthaften Geisterhebungen." - Etwas berieben u. leicht bestossen; zusätzliches Rückenschild mit Standortnr.; Schnitt u. Vorsätze etwas braunfleckig u. Vorsatz mit Rest eines Aufklebers; Titel mit altem Logenstempel "St. Johannis Loge zur gekrönten Schlange in Goerlitz 1764"; ein gutes Expl.

        Mahlerische Darstellungen der Sitten, Gebräuche und Lustbarkeiten bey den Russischen, Tatarischen, Mongolischen und andern Volkern im Russischen Reich.

      Baumgärtnerischen Buchhandlung Leipzig c. 1804 - Four parts in 1 volume, 4to (30 x 24.4 cm). Text in French and German. X, 28, [4], [29]-64, [6], [65]-100, [6], [101]-142 pp, with 40 aquatint plates in contemporary hand colour; erased stamp to title, moderate dampstain with tide-marks visible throughout, usually pale, stains to pl 31, about 4 plates discoloured in sky but otherwise colours generally fresh. Contemporary half calf over paste-paper boards, spine gilt with morocco labels; mild wear to binding, text block cracked in a couple of places. First edition of these lively hand-coloured scenes - uncommon. The artist Geissler (1770 - 1844), who accompanied Peter Simon Pallas on his expedition to southern Russia from 1793-1794, created these forty lovely engravings after the sketches which he made during his long trip. The first part of the work is dedicated to Russian festivities and games, which provided foreigners with probably the most detailed insight into this sphere of Russian people's life at that time. Curiously, in most of his illustrations Geissler adopted a grotesque manner, depicting the characters with slightly distorted proportions of the body and apparent naivety. The predominance of scenes of leisure and games in the work contributes to the impression that Geissler intended to portray Russia as an exotic place left behind the progress and cultural development of the Western world - which was a reason behind Catherine the Great's bad opinion of Geissler's sketches.

        An experimental inquiry into the nature and propagation of heat

      London: J. Mawman, 1804. Inscribed to Francis Maseres Leslie, John (1766-1832). An experimental inquiry into the nature, and propagation, of heat. 8vo. xv [1, errata], 562pp. Slip titled "Additional errata" tipped to errata page. 9 folding plates. London: J. Mawman, 1804. 211 x 129 mm. Quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Light browning, stamps of the Inner Temple Library on title, plate versos and 1 or 2 other places, but very good. Author's presentation inscription to Baron [Francis] Maseres (1731-1824) on the flyleaf: "To Baron Maseres with best wishes from the Author." Maseres's signature on title. Bookplate of the Inner Temple. First Edition. Leslie's magnum opus "established several fundamental laws of heat radiation: that the emissivity and absorptivity for any surface are equal, that the emissivity of a surface increases with the increase of reflectivity, and that the intensity of heat radiated from a surface is proportional to the sine of the angle of the rays to the surface. The book also played a major role in the early nineteenth-century argument about whether heat was a form of matter or a mode of motion. Leslie's experiments showed that heat, unlike light, was not directly transmitted through transparent solids. Since Leslie embraced a corpuscular theory, he incorrectly interpreted the apparent blackage of heat radiation as evidence that heat was composed of particles much larger than those of light. He borrowed from James Hutton the basic notion that heat was a compound formed by the union of light particles with ordinary particles of matter. Francois Delarotche later showed that Leslie's failure to detect direct transmission of heat through solids was a result of using only low-temperature heat sources whose radiation was absorbed by the solid screens. In the meantime, Leslie's puzzling experimental results had stimulated further investigations of diathermancy and the nature of radiant heat" (DSB). Francis Maseres, the recipient of this copy, wrote several works on mathematics (one with Charles Babbage) that won the praise of Joseph Priestley; he also served as Quebec's attorney-general from 1766-69. He was a member of the Inner Temple, to which he bequeathed his library. Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 203. Cardwell, From Watt to Clausius, pp. 107-112. DNB for Maseres.

      1804 - First edition. Half title, large folding engraved map dated 1804. 8vo. Contemporary calf-backed paper old boards, ms. annotations in pencil. [4], vi, 312p. Paris, Levrault, Schoell et Compagnie, de l'imprimerie de Crapelet, An XII - An English translation by Lambert appeared in 1805. ?The zest with which Michaux describes some of the wonders of the West in this brief and discursive journal is as pleasant as his intelligent discussion of economical facts, and puritan domesticity in the East. He gave his countrymen a correct and impressive idea of the products and promise of the great West, but more especially of Ohio and Kentucky? (Thomson). Michaux (1770-1850) was a French botanist and silviculturalist, long resident in the USA. On the half title is a very interesting note in ink: 'les notes au crayon qui sont dans cet exemplaire sont de M. de la Haye habitant a St. Domingue. et notaire au port de paix [in Haiti], refugié à qu'il a habité longtemps. Mer a ecrite[sic] pour moi à Paris'. A M. l'abbé de la Haye is described as priest at Dondon, again in Haiti, in Moreau de St. Méry, Loix et constitutions des colonies françaises de l'Amérique sous le vent, Paris, [1784] i, xxiv, and this may indicate that the family was established there. The pencilled notes (which are faint) are mainly on 3, 8, 10, 45, 71pp. 76-77 and again at p. 87, with a few elsewhere, but there are small crosses marking paragra[hs through the rest of the volume. That on page 10 concerns the burning of coal in Charleston imported from England : ' Ce n'est pas pour l'économie, c'est pour luxe, car on n'en fait usage que dans la Drawing Room' (This is not done for economy but for luxury, as it is only made use of in the Drawing Room'). The two long notes on pp.76 and 77 concern the use of the river in Ohio. Michaux (p. 77) writes that people abandon themselves 'au fil de l'eau' without knowing whjere they weill stop. The annotator writes that they do not abandon themlves but make use of a large steering oar or rudder'. Provenance: at foot of the spine are the letters S.M. Sabin, 48703; MacPhail, 4; Thomson, 822; Goldsmiths'-Kress library of economic literature, no. 18816.12. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Their names were Van and Chou, to which they annexed the title of Ta-gin, or great man. We observed in their manners no indication of that stiff and ceremonious conduct, which custom obliges them to put on in public. On the contrary, they sat down to table with us, endeavouring to learn the use of knife and fork, and made themselves extremely agreeable; lamented that they were not able to hold conversation with us in our own language; and on going away , shook hands with us like Englishmen.?

        THE LIFE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON, COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE AMERICAN FORCES DURING THE WAR WHICH ESTABLISHED THE INDEPENDENCE OF HIS COUNTRY, AND FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. [COMPLETE IN FIVE VOLUMES]

      Printed for Richard Phillips 1804-1807, London - NEWSLETTER TEXT: John Marshall THE LIFE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON, COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE AMERICAN FORCES DURING THE WAR WHICH ESTABLISHED THE INDEPENDENCE OF HIS COUNTRY, AND FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. [COMPLETE IN FIVE VOLUMES] London: Printed for Richard Phillips, 1804-1807. First Edition. John Marshall (September 24, 1755 - July 6, 1835) was the fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (1801-1835). Marshall greatly admired George Washington, and between 1804 and 1807 published this influential five-volume biography. Marshall's Life of Washington was based on records and papers provided to him by the late president's family. The first volume was reissued in 1824 separately as A History of the American Colonies. The work reflected Marshall's Federalist principles. His revised and condensed two-volume Life of Washington was published in 1832. Historians have often praised its accuracy and well-reasoned judgments, while noting his frequent paraphrases of published sources such as William Gordon's 1801 history of the Revolution and the British Annual Register.
