[Slavery]. [Kentucky]
[Stanford, Ky, 1805. Still very good.. Two autograph documents, [2]pp. total, with docketing on verso. Previously folded. Some creasing and light wear. Moderate tanning. Two documents signed by Joel Atkinson as Justice of the Peace of Lincoln County, Kentucky concerning a slave case there in the summer of 1805. The first, dated July 27, states that, "A negro man slave property of George Mathews named Sam... did on or about the 24th of this instant feloniously take, steal, carry away out of the pasture of William Mosby one brown horse to the value of twenty four pounds the property of John McKinley of said county.... You are required in the name of the Commonwealth of Kentucky to bring the said Sam before me." The second document, dated July 29, reads in part, "To the Sheriff of Said County, Whereas Sam a negro man slave...was this day committed to the jail of this county by my warrant, it appearing to me that the felonious offence wherewith he stands charged ought to be exammoned [?] into by a court of oyer and tirmenir [sic]... I command you to summon the five Term Justices of this county to meet at the court house in the town of Stanfort on Thursday the 4th day of August, and then and there to hold court for the examination of the facts with the said sam stand charged." Very interesting evidence of the process for holding criminal slave trials in Kentucky during the Federal period.

Adam Smith (1723-1790) was a moral philosopher and political economist. An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations is the magnum opus of Adam Smith and was first published in 1776. It is an account of economics at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, as well as a rhetorical piece written for the generally educated individual of the 18th century - advocating a free market economy as more productive and more beneficial to society. "The Wealth of Nations had no rival in scope or depth when published and is still one of the few works in its field to have achieved classic status, meaning simply that it has sustained yet survived repeated reading, critical and adulatory, long after the circumstances which prompted it have become the object of historical enquiry." - DNB CONDIT … [Click Below for Full Description]

[London:] The Office of the Treasure of His Majesty's Navy, 1805. [London:] The Office of the Treasure of His Majesty's Navy,, 1805. Folio (348 x 209 mm). 20th-century dark green morocco-backed blue cloth boards preserving the original printed wrappers, titles in gilt on morocco spine label, edges untrimmed, yellow endpapers, from p. [125] to p. 479 as issued. Reference material pasted onto front endpapers, water stain to lower corner of front wrapper, light soiling to wrappers; an otherwise immaculate copy. First edition of the report produced by the commission of inquiry appointed in 1802 to review the financial management of the Admiralty, of which Dundas had been treasurer between 1782 and 1800, and which, on the initiative of Samuel Whitbread, resulted in Dundas's impeachment in 1806 for the misappropriation of public money. Henry Dundas, first Viscount Melville (1742–1811) was a Scottish advocate and Tory politician who wanted, and eventually got, the post of first lord of the Admiralty. Melville thought that, since there was no chance of challenging Napoleon on land, and as at the time, Britain ruled most of the world's oceans, the only chance of renewing offensive operations was an improved and growing navy. An opinion confirmed by Nelson's victory at the battle of Trafalgar, which settled the naval war for the duration as it meant that Britain could not be defeated, even while she and her allies were still a long way off defeating France. "Nelson had been an untiring importuner at the Admiralty for ever more vessels to deploy in his actions, and Melville had done … [Click Below for Full Description]

Arrowsmith, Aaron; Lewis, Samuel
Boston: Thomas & Andrews, 1805. Second edition. Hardcover. Good condition. Arrowsmith and Lewis's important little atlas, complete with 63 maps. The original thirteen states are included as well as the District of Maine, Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Mississippi Territory and Louisiana. Very important work from an American map point of view, but also contains a fascinating New Holland (Australia) map with an incomplete southern coast extending down to Antarctica. Wheat lists four of the maps included in this atlas and considers them to be significant - Louisiana (Wheat 259), British Possessions in America (Wheat 260), Spanish Dominions in North America (Wheat 261) and North America (Wheat 262) - and says of them collectively "When considered together the four afford a remarkably clear epitome of the knowledge of the West at the moment when Meriwether Lewis and William Clark were poised for the take-off of their history-making expedition." Paul Cohen describes the Louisiana map in "Mapping the West" stating that although it is as equally inaccurate as the Soulard version, "[the Samuel Lewis map] ... was the primary map of the newly purchased territory of Louisiana and its surroundings and, as such, reflected and shaped American popular geographical images of the western interior at the time of Lewis and Clark." With an interesting Fairfield County, Connecticut provenance: Charity B.

Smith, Adam
Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, London, 1805. Early edition of Adam Smith's magnum opus and cornerstone of economic thought, finely bound by Bayntun Bindery. Octavo, 3 volumes. Bound in three quarters calf over marbled boards, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, raised bands, morocco spine labels, top edge gilt. In near fine condition, small stamp to volume one. An exceptional set of this classic work. Adam Smith's masterpiece, first published in 1776, is the foundation of modern economic thought and remains the single most important account of the rise of, and the principles behind, modern capitalism. "The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory.his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange.Labour represents the three essential elements-wages, profit and rent-and these three also constitute income. From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter -'stock'- which encompasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or for the return … [Click Below for Full Description]

Architektur des Neo-Palladianismus - Stieglitz, Christian Ludwig
Leipzig, Georg Voß, 1805. circa 43,8 x 30,8 cm., Gestochenes Frontispiz, 2 Bll., 46 SS., 114 (auf 104 teils gefalteten oder doppelblgr.) Tafeln. Halb-Leder d. Zt. mit Rückenvergoldung Ornamentstichkatalog Berlin, 2051. Überarbeitete zweite Auflage des zunächst 1798-1800 mit französischem Text und dann 1800 erstmals deutsch veröffentlichten Prachtwerkes mit Ansichten und Grundrissen teils bestehender, teils idealer Gebäude im klassizistischen Stil, der an den englischen Palladianismus anknüpft. Laut Vorwort stammen die Zeichnungen aus der Sammlung des Lord Findlater - wohl des im Dresdner Exil lebenden James Ogilvy, 7. Earl of Findlater (1750-1811). Sie orientieren sich sowohl am "Vitruvius Britannicus" als auch an französischen Vorlagenwerken mit Mustern der klassizistischen Revolutions-Architektur. Gestochen sind sie überwiegend von Schwender. Viele Blätter haben unten eine Widmung des Verlegers an einen Fürsten mit dessen gestochenem Wappen in der Mitte. - Etwa die ersten zwanzig Blatt mit nur mattem Wasserrand nur im weissen Rand, ohne Textberührung. Die Tafeln im oberen weissen Rand mit einem langsam etwas breiter werdenden braunen Feuchtrand, der nur auf den allerletzten Blättern leicht in die obere Darstellung reicht, meist jedoch nur den weissen Rand betrifft - im Preis dennoch sehr deutlich berücksichtigt wurde. Wenige Tafeln im weissen Rand unten leicht ausgefranst ohne Bildberührung, sonst auf festem und bis auf die Ränder schönem und sauberem Papier gedruckt. Einband etwas berieben und mit Schabspuren, dennoch hübscher Rücken. [10 Warenabbildungen bei antiquaria … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ray [ILLUSTRATOR AND THE BOOK IN ENGLAND, ETC.] "Bewick's use of end-grained blocks was widely imitated both in England and the Continent. Among his apprentices were some of the most distinguished engravers of the first half of the 19th century. When later artists like Gordon Craig and William Nicholson revived the tradition of creative work on wood, they turned to Bewick's example in freeing themselves from the trammels of reproductive engraving."

1805. Traite Theorique et Pratique L'Impression Des Tissues by Jean-François Persoz. Jean-François Persoz (1805-1868), was a chemist and professor at the School of Pharmacy at Strasbourg. Persoz won a medal for his work and it was published by Société d'Encouragement pour l'Industrie Nationale. First edition published 1846 in five parts. 4 books and an atlas. Printed by G. Silbermann. The first volume describes the technical aspects of coloring and chemistry, while the following volumes include vibrant fabric samples from the principal calico printers in England, Scotland, Alsace, Switzerland, Normandy, and Paris. The 4 volumes are illustrated with 429 fabric samples, each individually mounted onto printed pages. For sale here are the four books-the atlas is missing but inside these four books are 429 stunning fabric samples. Text in French. Some the dye from the fabric has bled through to a couple of pages. The binding is tired and old but the binding itself is strong and the pages tight. An important and beautiful book. It's easy to see why George Seurat as so taken by it. Seurat cited the book as influential to the development of his own novel style of painting, known as pointillism. [Attributes: First Edition]
