MARSHALL, John
1804 1ed George Washington by John Marshall Revolutionary War 5v AMERICANA Maps The Constitution is colorblind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens. John Marshall John Marshall admired George Washington greatly and sought to publish a thorough biography on the President s life. It was based on written records that were provided by Washington s family. However, two-thirds of this biography is concerned with Washington s military career and depicts an accurate portrayal of the major battles of the American Revolutionary War (Sparks, preface). Larned even notes that this work is one of the three most famous lives of Washington. This 1804 first British edition was published in London as a way to inform the English public on the American leader. Following the successes of the first two volumes, three additional volumes were published in the following three years. Howes notes that this British edition is the best edition and Sabin states that much colonial history was omitted in later American editions. Item number: #5003 Price: $2500 MARSHALL, John 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. Compiled under the inspection of the Hon. Bushrod Washington from original papers . to which is prefixed, an introduction containing a compendious view of the colonies planted by the English on the continent of North America.

GORDON, Lockhart and Loudoun.
John Fairburn. [1804] Sewn as issued. Pencil signature of 'Loveday' on title. 28pp.Not in BL; no copies on Copac; Cornell only on OCLC. An account of the trial of the clergyman Lockhart Gordon and his brother Loudoun, for the abduction and rape of Rachel Lee, held at the Oxford Assizes on March 6, 1804. On hearing the evidence, the Judge Lawrence dismissed the case on the basis that Mrs Lee had not been forcibly removed to Oxford. 'There is no doubt', the account concludes, 'had they slept in Middlesex, and the venue laid in that county, the conviction must have taken place'.

MICHAUX (François-André)
Paris, imp. de Crapelet, chez Levrault, an XII (1804). demi-vélin crème époque à petits coins, dos lisse, pièce de titre marron, tr. mouchetées, petites restaurations au dos sinon bon exemplaire. Edition originale rare. À l'instar de son père, le naturaliste André Michaux qui voyagea pendant plusieurs années dans le centre des États-Unis, l'auteur (1855) visita les mêmes régions. Il s'attacha à l'étude de la botanique et de l'agriculture ainsi qu'aux débouchés commerciaux. Ses fines observations sur le Kentucky sont d'autant plus intéressantes qu'elles rendent compte de la situation économique de cet état peu de temps après sa séparation d'avec la Virginie et juste avant le développement de ses relations commerciales à la suite de la cession de la Louisiane en 1803.

Two volumes, thin royal (vol. 1) and demy (vol. 2) 8vo (225 x 135 mm). Wood-engraved title vignette, illustrations, head- and tail-pieces by Bewick. Modern polished calf gilt by R. Wallace. Lacking half-title in volume 1, lightly spotted, one leaf with marginal repair. Provenance: purchased from Goodspeed's Book Shop, 1983. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Item #401733 FIRST EDITION, volume 1 with plate at p.75 in FIRST STATE, vignette at p.285 in "uninked" state, vignette on p.22 Roscoe's Variant A, volume 2 conforms to Roscoe's Variant F. The best-known work of the famed wood-engraver Thomas Bewick. Bewickâ s imaginative designs and technique are said to have revived the medium of wood-engraving at this time. The work was beloved by the Brönte sisters, and Charlotte Brönte used it to provide escape for Jane Eyre when she was being bullied by her cousins and aunt at Gateshead. â Although the text and images transport Jane to 'strangely impressive' worlds, their uncanny paranormal elements frighten her and foreshadow future encounters with the supernatural. Jane is particularly drawn to the allegorical vignettes depicted in Bewickâ s tail-piecesâ (British Library). Ayer/Zimmer I, 57; Nissen IVB 95; Roscoe 14, 17.

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... Author: Barrow, John Published: London; T.Cadell and W. Davies, 1804 Binding: Hardcover Condition: Very good (please see full item description for details) Description: 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).

ARROWSMITH, Aaron
London,: A. Arrowsmith, 1804. London,: A. Arrowsmith,, 1804.. Compiled from various Interesting and Valuable Materials Is Inscribed in Grateful Testimony of His Liberal Communications By his obedient and most humble Servant A. Arrowsmith. First edition, large engraved map, on six sheets, in three sections joined, fine original hand colour. Originally published in six sheets, it shows British controlled areas at the turn of the 18th century. Arrowsmith's dedication of this map to Wood is probably more a reflection of the fact that Wood was in the public eye (he had recently published two successful works on India and the route to India), than a recognition of his work as a surveyor (which had ended over ten years earlier). Sir Mark Wood (1747- 1829) had returned to England in 1793 after a distinguished career in the East India Company, culminating with his appointment as surveyor-general in 1787 and chief engineer in Bengal in 1790. Aaron Arrowsmith (1750-1823) was the finest cartographer of his generation. Although he received little formal education it is believed that he was taught some mathematical instruction by William Emerson, an author of several books on the application of mathematics to the area of cartography. Around 1770, Arrowsmith moved to London to seek employment. It is believed that he worked for William Faden before joining John Cary Sr. in the early 1780s. There he provided the measurements for John Cary's early publication detailing the roads from London to Falmouth, his first signed work. Arrowsmith set up on his own in 1790 and over the next thirty y … [Click Below for Full Description]

EX RARE Click images to enlarge Description Geography Bewitched or a droll Caricature Map of England and Wales. Robert Dighton. Printed for Bowles & Carver, London, 1804. Dighton's incredibly rare hand-coloured caricature map of England and Wales. Robert Dighton (1752-1814) was well known as a portrait artist and is regarded as one of the most talented social caricaturists of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. As an artist, he was first offered consistent employment by the publisher Carington Bowles [1752-1793]. This was the heyday of the so-called 'droll' mezzotint and Robert's output of designs, executed in watercolour and then engraved, was an integral part of his stock. Carington Bowles was among of the most active map sellers of his day in London, which will explain Dighton's caricature maps in his Geography Bewitched series, including Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales (this map). At the beginning of the nineteenth century, he would achieve notoriety when he was found to have stolen valuable prints from the British Museum, which he sold through his shop in Charing Cross. His crime was exposed when a dealer, but the name of Samuel Woodburn, having acquired a Rembrandt etching from Dighton, went to the British Museum to compare it with their copy, whereupon he found the print to be missing. Dighton later confessed that he had befriended a museum official by drawing portraits of him and h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Malkin, Benjamin Heath.
Pr. for T.N. Longman & O. Rees by T. Bensley, 1804. First edition of this picturesque travelogue, offering both facts and fiction regarding Welsh history alongside extensive descriptions of the countryside. The volume is "embellished with views, drawn on the spot and engraved by J. Laporte; and a map of the country," those views consisting of => a frontispiece and twelve lithographic plates; the backgrounds of the plates are => tinted green, tan, or gray. G. Martin Murphy, writing in the DNB online, says of the work that "it was one of the best travel books of its kind, displaying Malkin's acute observation and considerable knowledge of Welsh history." Malkin (1769-1842), a schoolmaster and antiquary, was a friend "of William Blake, with whom he shared an interest in radical politics," and friends to such an extent that "he commissioned Blake to design and engrave the frontispiece of his book A Father's Memoir of his Child, a personal record of his eldest son, Thomas . . . The published engraving, though designed by Blake, was eventually executed by R. H. Cromek (1770-1812)" (DNB). Binding: Contemporary dark green straight-grain morocco, framed and panelled with blind and gilt rolls, spine gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather title-label. Salmon-colored endpapers and all edges gilt. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Christopher Harrison; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Author: Barrow, John Published: London; T.Cadell and W. Davies, 1804 Binding: Hardcover Condition: Very good (please see full item description for details) Description: 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).

James White
See listing. James White Peterborough (New Hampshire) 1804 Manuscript math book with patriotic mathematical word problems. "how many minutes since the commencement of the American war which happened on the 19 day of April 1775" was the first handwritten entry on the first page Another math problem is pictured also concerning Time "how many seconds between commencement of the war April 19, 1775 and the independence of the United States of America which took place the 4 day of July 1776" After considerable research, I believe this math book belonged to James White (1784-1859) and was also used by his brother Samuel (1778-1860) both of Peterborough New Hampshire and sons of John White (1742-1823) and Hannah Miller (1748-1825) James White later served as Captain 1820-1823 in the Militia (Lafayette Artillery Company which was founded in Peterborough in 1804) James evidently was also practicing his penmanship in writing his name throughout his Cypher book. Also Name of Samuel White appears here and there in this Cypher book. Inside front cover name of John White as well as James White. James White and Milly Law were married in 1812 in Sharon New Hampshire and had a son named John born in 1820 so the entries dated 1832 could have been his. I believe this book was also used by his brother Samuel and later on by John. The name "Mr Reuben Law" appears once later in the book. My personal research indicates Reuben was born in Acton in 1751 and died in 1840 in Sharon NH; he was a minute man in Capt Isaac Davis's Company at the Concord fight; interesting to note research indicates James … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wood-engraved title vignette, illustrations, head- and tail-pieces by Bewick. Modern polished calf gilt by R. Wallace. Lacking half-title in volume 1, lightly spotted, one leaf with marginal repair. Provenance: purchased from Goodspeed's Book Shop, 1983. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Item #401733 FIRST EDITION, volume 1 with plate at p.75 in FIRST STATE, vignette at p.285 in "uninked" state, vignette on p.22 Roscoe's Variant A, volume 2 conforms to Roscoe's Variant F. The best-known work of the famed wood-engraver Thomas Bewick. Bewick's imaginative designs and technique are said to have revived the medium of wood-engraving at this time. The work was beloved by the Brönte sisters, and Charlotte Brönte used it to provide escape for Jane Eyre when she was being bullied by her cousins and aunt at Gateshead. "Although the text and images transport Jane to 'strangely impressive' worlds, their uncanny paranormal elements frighten her and foreshadow future encounters with the supernatural. Jane is particularly drawn to the allegorical vignettes depicted in Bewick's tail-pieces" (British Library). Ayer/Zimmer I, 57; Nissen IVB 95; Roscoe 14, 17.

France
1804 1ed French Civil Code Napoleonic Wars French Revolution France LAW Paris Beginning in 1804, The French Civil Code, or Napoleonic Code, was established under Napoleon Bonaparte. It strongly influenced the laws of many countries, especially those during the Napoleonic Wars and Middle Eastern countries seeking to modernize their political and governmental standards. This collection of laws and legal codes were established based on Justinian and Roman law rather than preexisting French laws. However, these laws were not favorable with everyone. Women were given fewer rights, in fact, they were considered substantially inferior to men and even minorities. These codes; however, did provide a more stringent focus on military and included a complete overhaul of civil procedures.

SENANCOUR (Etienne Pivert de)
Paris, Cérioux, An XII - 1804. 2 volumes in-8 (195 x 124 mm), demi-veau fauve, dos lisses ornés d’un jeu de chaînons dorés, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin citron et vert d'eau, tranches mouchetées bleues (reliure Devauchelle dans le goût de l'époque), (2) f., viii, 384 p. et (2) f., 381, (1) p. de "Corrections nécessaires". Edition originale tirée à petit nombre et publiée sans succès. Il fallut attendre les articles et préfaces de Sainte-Beuve (1832) et de George Sand (1833) pour que ce roman épistolaire, à la fois essai et journal intime, suscite la ferveur des jeunes romantiques qui feront du personnage d’Oberman l’incarnation du "mal du siècle" et de Senancour le prophète des temps nouveaux. "Premier en date des romans intimes, aux côtés ‘d'Adolphe’ et de ‘Volupté’, il en demeure le chef-d'œuvre", selon André Monglond (‘Journal intime d'Oberman’, Arthaud, 1947, I, 337) qui précise par ailleurs préférer cette version de 1804 à celles ultérieures remaniées par l'auteur. "Par bien des aspects [.], ‘Oberman’ annonce les angoisses de l’homme moderne et son désir de retrouver une nature première, loin des artifices et des contraintes d’une société impitoyable. La poésie de cette prose, l’évocation des paysages de haute montagne et le dialogue tragique de l’homme avec l’univers devraient encore trouver un écho chez les lecteurs de notre siècle" (Béatrice Didier, ‘Célébrations nationales’, Dir. des archives de France, 2004, p. 161). Proust, grand lecteur ‘d'Oberman’, écrivit même: "Senancour, c'est moi" (In ‘Textes retrouvés’, "Cahiers Marcel Proust", n°3, 1971). (C … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moulton, William]
For the author, Utica, 1804. 158pp. plus errata. Modern three-quarter gilt morocco and marbled boards. Browned and foxed, a few leaves dampstained. Else very good. "Moulton had served the country under arms, before he shipped out on the American schooner Onico on the voyage 'to take fur seal in the Southern and Pacific Oceans, and when she had obtained her cargo, to proceed to Canton in China, to dispose of it, and take in a cargo of the merchandise of that country, for America.' Moulton's object for the voyage was to acquire property and to improve his health. He kept a diary for the length of the trip recording every event in detail. The whole crew with him suffered great hardship and indignities from the ship's master, George Howe, and the first mate, George Haley, who eventually sold the ship and abandoned the mutinous crew 'in a remote part of the Southern Hemisphere.' The Onico visited ports along the west coast of South America and Juan Fernandez, where the crew was deserted by Howe. The account includes interesting observations on the history, geography, climate, and natural history of the places visited, in addition to numerous documents pertaining to the events and account of the sealing activities. This little-known book is notable for its scarcity and for being the first book to be printed in Utica, N.Y. Although the printers are not stated, it was doubtless printed by Merrell & Seward" - Hill. This volume is one of the few narratives published of the early period of American sealing activities in the South Atlantic and South Pacific. HILL 1193. AII (UTICA) 15. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Occasional light spotting to the later volumes, a very good set overall. Sowerby issued his masterfully illustrated catalogue of British minerals in parts between 1802 and 1817, although the title pages of the books are dated from 1804 onwards. Lawrence H. Conklin, in his paper on Sowerby's mineralogical works (Mineral Record, July 1995), refers to this as "the supreme work of British topographical mineralogy" and "certainly the most ambitious colorplate work on minerals ever published". An uncommon work, Conklin surmised that there are fewer than one hundred complete sets, having personally come across fifty during the course of his researches.
