        An Account of a Voyage to establish a colony at Port Philip in Bass's Strait, on the South Coast of New South Wales, in His Majesty's Ship Calcutta, in the years 1802–3–4.

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme; and J. C. Mottley, Portsmouth, 1805 - Octavo (204 x 123 mm). Bound by Bayntun in tan half calf, pale orange cloth, raised bands to spine, dark brown morocco label, sailing ship tools to compartments gilt, top edge gilt, others trimmed, marbled endpapers. Cloth boards slightly mottled with a few small dark spots, offsetting from turn-ins to endpapers, mild browning to text block edges. Otherwise an excellent copy. Bound with half-title, with adverts on last leaf verso. First edition. The only known contemporary publication describing the failed attempt at establishing a settlement at Port Phillip under the command of Lieutenant-Governor David Collins. James Hingston Tuckey (1776–1816) was an Irish naval officer appointed first lieutenant of HMS Calcutta in 1803. Together with the storeship Ocean, the Calcutta set out for Australia with free settlers and about 300 convicts. The settlers remained in the area of Port Phillip Bay for about half a year before the settlement had to be abandoned due to hostility from the Aborgines, lack of water, swampy land, and difficulties of navigation. During these months, Tuckey was nonetheless able to survey the harbour of Port Phillip, as well as carefully examining the surrounding coast and countryside. While part of the expedition continued onwards to Hobart, Tuckey decided to return to England via Sydney, arriving in London in the autumn of 1804. The failure of this expedition meant that Port Phillip remained unsettled for more than twenty years, being used only occasionally as a harbour by the whalers and sealers of Bass Strait.

        The first broadside printing of Jefferson's 1805 inaugural address, on silk

      [Boston], [March 16, 1805]. 12" x 22". "Broadside, President Jefferson's Inaugural Speech. ([Boston: True & Parks, 1805]), 12"" x 22"", on silk. Stitched at edges and laid down on a textile. Some fraying and losses to several words. Housed in an ornate wood frame with gilt accents. Jefferson's landslide victory in the election of 1804 was marred by the death of his 24-year-old daughter Polly during childbirth. Instead of walking to his second inauguration, Jefferson rode in a carriage, dressed in black. Despite his electoral mandate, Jefferson chose not to dwell upon the recently-completed Louisiana Purchase, cognizant that many feared that the enlargement of the nation risked fracturing the Union (indeed a group of Massachusetts Federalists briefly conspired to break from the Union over this issue): ""I know that the acquisition of Louisiana had been disapproved by some from a candid apprehension that the enlargement of our territory would endanger its union. But who can limit the extent to which the federative principle may operate effectively? The larger our association the less will it be shaken by local passions; and in any view is it not better that the opposite bank of the Mississippi should be settled by our own brethren and children than by strangers of another family? With which should we be most likely to live in harmony and friendly intercourse?"" Jefferson focused instead on the state of Native Americans within in the United States: ""The aboriginal inhabitants of these countries I have regarded with the commiseration their history inspires. Endowed with the faculties and the rights of men, breathing an ardent love of liberty and independence, and occupying a country which left them no desire but to be undisturbed, the stream of overflowing population from other regions directed itself on these shores; without power to divert or habits to contend against it, they have been overwhelmed by the current or driven before it; now reduced within limits too narrow for the hunter's state, humanity enjoins us to teach them agriculture and the domestic arts; to encourage them to that industry which alone can enable them to maintain their place in existence and to prepare them in time for that state of society which to bodily comforts adds the improvement of the mind and morals. We have therefore liberally furnished them with the implements of husbandry and household use; we have placed among them instructors in the arts of first necessity, and they are covered with the aegis of the law against aggressors from among ourselves."" Yet, quite paternalistically, Jefferson bemoaned their insistence on maintaining their traditional ways, casting them as enemies of reason?"and by extension?"civilization: ""But the endeavors to enlighten them on the fate which awaits their present course of life, to induce them to exercise their reason, follow its dictates, and change their pursuits with the change of circumstances have powerful obstacles to encounter; they are combated by the habits of their bodies, prejudices of their minds, ignorance, pride, and the influence of interested and crafty individuals among them who feel themselves something in the present order of things and fear to become nothing in any other. These persons inculcate a sanctimonious reverence for the customs of their ancestors; that whatsoever they did must be done through all time; that reason is a false guide, and to advance under its counsel in their physical, moral, or political condition is perilous innovation; that their duty is to remain as their Creator made them, ignorance being safety and knowledge full of danger; in short, my friends, among them also is seen the action and counteraction of good sense and of bigotry; they too have their antiphilosophists who find an interest in keeping things in their present state, who dread reformation, and exert all their faculties to maintain the ascendancy of habit over the duty of improving our reason and obeying its mandates."" Scarce. True & Parks, the publisher of The Democrat first printed Jefferson's inaugural on the front page of the March 16, 1805 issue of the paper and then offered a special silk broadside version to subscribers. Writing on page three of that issue, the publisher remarked that ""This document cannot be raised in the estimation of our readers, by any comments within our power to advance. To pay our small tribute of respect to its author, we have directed our attention for its display in the Democrat, in some degree correspondent with its invaluable merit. Those who wish it preserved as an ornament, to adorn the parlor, while it will afford a rich treasure of instruction for their budding offspring; are respectfully informed that we have printed a number on elegant WHITE SATIN, to answer so desirable a purpose."" (The Democrat, Boston, March 16, 1805, p. 3) This was the first souvenir broadside edition of Jefferson's second Inaugural address. It is unknown how many True & Parks printed, but only a handful survive in institutional collections including the Massachusetts Historical Society, The Newberry Library and the University of Virginia. Not in Shaw & Shoemaker. (See Noble E. Cunningham, The Inaugural Addresses of Thomas Jefferson, 1801 and 1805, p. 90, figure 6-3)"

        PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.TO THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. AT A MOMENT WHEN THE NATIONS OF EUROPE ARE IN COMMOTION AND ARMING AGAINST EACH OTHER.[caption title and beginning of text].

      New London: Gazette Office, Dec. 9, [1805]. - Broadside, 19 x 11 1/2 inches, printed in three columns. Expertly backed with archival paper, with some small holes, tiny areas of loss along the folds, affecting a small amount of text, some foxing and toning, some faint contemporary ink and pencil notations on verso, with mild bleedthrough of the ink. Good plus, with wide margins, untrimmed. A very rare printing of the first State of the Union Address of President Jefferson's second term. It was printed by the Gazette Office in New London, Connecticut. Interestingly, the date at the end of the message was printed incorrectly, reading "December 3, 1806" when the actual date of Jefferson address was a year earlier. In this State of the Union Address, the president relates the difficulties in settling differences with Spain, especially the Louisana boundary issues: "Propositions for adjusting amicably the boundaries of Louisiana have not been acceded to. While, however, the right is unsettled, we have avoided changing the state of things by taking new posts or strengthening ourselves in the disputed territories, in the hope that the other power would not by a contrary conduct oblige us to meet their example and endanger conflicts of authority the of which may not be easily controlled. But in this hope we have now reason to lessen our confidence. Inroads have been recently made into the Territories of Orleans and the Mississippi, our citizens have been seized and their property plundered in the very parts of the former which had been actually delivered up by Spain, and this by the regular officers and soldiers of that Government. I have therefore found it necessary at length to give orders to our troops on that frontier to be in readiness to protect our citizens, and to repel by arms any similar aggressions in future." Jefferson devotes considerable time in this message to relating recent land purchases from the Native Americans. First, he praises the Indians for their pursuit of agriculture. Then, the president enumerates recent land acquisitions, including: ".the lands between the Connecticut Reserve and the former Indian boundary and those on the Ohio from the same boundary to the rapids and for a considerable depth inland. The Chickasaws and Cherokees have sold us the country between and adjacent to the two districts of Tennessee, and the Creeks the residue of their lands in the fork of the Ocmulgee up to the Ulcofauhatche. The three former purchases are important, in as much as they consolidate disjoined parts of our settled country and render their intercourse secure; and the second particularly so, as, with the small point on the river which we expect is by this time ceded by the Piankeshaws, it completes our possession of the whole of both banks of the Ohio from its source to near its mouth, and the navigation of that river is thereby rendered forever safe to our citizens settled and settling on its extensive waters. The purchase from the Creeks, too, has been for some time particularly interesting to the State of Georgia." The president mentions the possibility of "new relations" and the potential for "commercial intercourse" with various Indians living on the Missouri River and "other parts beyond the Mississippi." Jefferson is expecting communications from explorers in this area "which we have reason shortly to expect." The explorers are, of course, Lewis and Clark, this address coming in the midst of the Corps of Discovery's epic western expedition. Jefferson discusses a variety of other issues, foreign and domestic, in this State of the Union address. He speaks at length about recent outbreaks of "the fatal fever" which have afflicted various American cities; he calls for further fortification of seaports, and a general build-up of the armed forces, including more gunboats and "material for the construction of ships of war of 74 guns." Jefferson also suggests a prohibition of exports of firearms and ammunition, praises Congress for handling prisoner-of-war transfers

To an unnamed correspondent; address panel on verso of third page: "I have been deeply touched, dear Sir, by the feeling which inspired your article and I can say, without being influenced by my gratitude toward you, that there are some words in it that are remarkable not only for the elevation of thought, but I may add also for the soundness of judgment they indicate when you talk about my father. If you still read Le publiciste you must have seen in it a really touching letter. I may say that all that reaches me from Paris is in harmony with what I have been longing for. In the note on opposite natures, there is a line you wrote which I find extremely witty and true at the same time: there is no doubt that the big difference that exists between some souls, whose cause is unknown from us, makes it impossible for certain persons to understand each other ever and I think I would understand more easily the expression in the eye of some Persian than what some people say, even though they speak French. Thank you very much for giving me the hope that we will see each other in Milan. Your kindness to me makes you feel more attached to me: this is the sure sign of a generous nature. It is in six weeks probably that I will have the pleasure of seeing you again. I have enjoyed the arts and nature in the South of Italy, but my most tender affections were born when I first got to Milan, and returning there gives me a renewed pleasure, since you have shown me so clearly that my friends there have not forgotten me".

        An Inquiry into the permanent Causes of the Decline and Fall of Powerful and Wealthy Nations, illustrated by four engraved Charts

      London: W. Marchant for Greenland and Norris,, 1805. Designed to shew how the prosperity of the British Empire may be prolonged. Quarto (263 × 207 mm). Contemporary marbled boards, recently rebacked and recornered in sprinkled calf, spine ruled gilt, red leather label. Ex-libris the University of Detroit, with bookplate on front pastedown, and presentation bookplate to the library from Major William Butler. Discreet library blind-stamp of the University of Detroit on title-page, and on pp. 17 and 70, and with ink accession number on title-page; short tears to fold of both the frontispiece and the third chart, occasional light foxing and some slight offsetting from charts. A very attractive copy. First edition of this important work and a remarkable attempt to present a general and comparative theory of the rise and fall of nations, and thus extract lessons from the downfall of the great empires of history and in so doing "find the means by which prosperity may be lengthened out, and the period of humiliation procrastinated to a distant day" (p. iv). As its title indicates, the Inquiry combines aspects of Smith's Wealth of Nations (1776) and Gibbon's Decline and Fall (1776-1788). Playfair surveys historical empires and argues that decline can be measured and thus prevented and forestalled; in particular, he insists that commerce, not conquest, sustains national power and that nations, particularly England, can maintain commercial prosperity if they direct their attention to preservation rather than extension. Particular attention must be paid to managing the national debt and maintaining a trade balance in favour of export. In addition to citing the work of Smith and Gibbons, his method draws upon the work of Hume, Ferguson and others, and draws from many disciplines. The causes of decline that Playfair adduces sound surprisingly modern. He saw over-mature economies as having certain common characteristics: high taxation, high prices, a very unequal distribution of property, strong special interest groups, monopolies, failures of motivation, and a high tendency to import. He thought that these burdens tended to result in a flight of capital to nations who could employ it more profitably, and in a natural and irreversible decline. He concludes that a proactive government-driven approach to the problem of decline can prolong national wealth and power. "It is, then, wealth arising from industry, that is the object to be aimed at, and that cannot be obtained by war or conquest" (p. 293). As early as 1786, Playfair is credited with the introduction of presenting economic information in simple chart form - line, circle, bar and pie graphs - and this celebrated work includes four fine examples. The striking frontispiece chart spans three millennia and shows the comparative progress and decline of all known empires, from ancient empires in Egypt and Assyria through modern empires in Europe and emergent empires in the Americas. The brother of the great physicist John Playfair, William was an adventurous character. He lived for some time in France, and is reported to have been a prisoner in the Bastille in 1789 when it was stormed at the beginning of the French Revolution. He published about forty works, and was also a notable editor of Smith's Wealth of Nations. His work was much admired by Dugald Stewart, Adam Smith's biographer and friend.

      D. D. Smith, New York 1805 - Twentyfourmo (3-3/8" x 5-3/8") bound in original full sheep leather with gilt rules on the spine; 180 pages. The second American cookbook, preceded by Amelia Simmons's much better known AMERICAN COOKERY, printed four times before the publication of this volume, which is much scarcer than the Simmons. It is also distinguished as the first American cookbook published in New York. In addition to the recipes for broiling, hashing, preserving, pickling, fricasees, soups, puddings, pies, etc., there are 20 pages devoted to the making of wine, quite early for an American book. Bitting page 581: "There are some unusual recipes, one for spinach, a forerunner for the spinach of today, cooking with no added water, garnished with poached eggs, and unusual for that period; oranges cut in quarters." Lowenstein 36 cites another New York imprint of T. B. Jansen in the same year. Lacking the endpapers; small chip at the top of the spine.

        PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE...TO THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. AT A MOMENT WHEN THE NATIONS OF EUROPE ARE IN COMMOTION AND ARMING AGAINST EACH OTHER...[caption title and beginning of text]

      New London: Gazette Office, Dec. 9, [1805].. Broadside, 19 x 11 1/2 inches, printed in three columns. Expertly backed with archival paper, with some small holes, tiny areas of loss along the folds, affecting a small amount of text, some foxing and toning, some faint contemporary ink and pencil notations on verso, with mild bleedthrough of the ink. Good plus, with wide margins, untrimmed. A very rare printing of the first State of the Union Address of President Jefferson's second term. It was printed by the Gazette Office in New London, Connecticut. Interestingly, the date at the end of the message was printed incorrectly, reading "December 3, 1806" when the actual date of Jefferson address was a year earlier. In this State of the Union Address, the president relates the difficulties in settling differences with Spain, especially the Louisana boundary issues: "Propositions for adjusting amicably the boundaries of Louisiana have not been acceded to. While, however, the right is unsettled, we have avoided changing the state of things by taking new posts or strengthening ourselves in the disputed territories, in the hope that the other power would not by a contrary conduct oblige us to meet their example and endanger conflicts of authority the of which may not be easily controlled. But in this hope we have now reason to lessen our confidence. Inroads have been recently made into the Territories of Orleans and the Mississippi, our citizens have been seized and their property plundered in the very parts of the former which had been actually delivered up by Spain, and this by the regular officers and soldiers of that Government. I have therefore found it necessary at length to give orders to our troops on that frontier to be in readiness to protect our citizens, and to repel by arms any similar aggressions in future." Jefferson devotes considerable time in this message to relating recent land purchases from the Native Americans. First, he praises the Indians for their pursuit of agriculture. Then, the president enumerates recent land acquisitions, including: "....the lands between the Connecticut Reserve and the former Indian boundary and those on the Ohio from the same boundary to the rapids and for a considerable depth inland. The Chickasaws and Cherokees have sold us the country between and adjacent to the two districts of Tennessee, and the Creeks the residue of their lands in the fork of the Ocmulgee up to the Ulcofauhatche. The three former purchases are important, in as much as they consolidate disjoined parts of our settled country and render their intercourse secure; and the second particularly so, as, with the small point on the river which we expect is by this time ceded by the Piankeshaws, it completes our possession of the whole of both banks of the Ohio from its source to near its mouth, and the navigation of that river is thereby rendered forever safe to our citizens settled and settling on its extensive waters. The purchase from the Creeks, too, has been for some time particularly interesting to the State of Georgia." The president mentions the possibility of "new relations" and the potential for "commercial intercourse" with various Indians living on the Missouri River and "other parts beyond the Mississippi." Jefferson is expecting communications from explorers in this area "which we have reason shortly to expect." The explorers are, of course, Lewis and Clark, this address coming in the midst of the Corps of Discovery's epic western expedition. Jefferson discusses a variety of other issues, foreign and domestic, in this State of the Union address. He speaks at length about recent outbreaks of "the fatal fever" which have afflicted various American cities; he calls for further fortification of seaports, and a general build-up of the armed forces, including more gunboats and "material for the construction of ships of war of 74 guns." Jefferson also suggests a prohibition of exports of firearms and ammunition, praises Congress for handling prisoner-of-war transfers from Tripoli after the recently- concluded Barbary War, and recommends guidelines for the number of naval frigates to be used in peace time. He ends the speech with an accounting of Treasury finances. Two other broadside printings of this State of the Union are located in Shaw & Shoemaker's AMERICAN IMPRINTS: Newport and Salem. This New London broadside printing of Jefferson's message is not listed in Shaw & Shoemaker, nor is it located on OCLC or in the Library of Congress. Important, and quite possibly unique.

Wolf); 'Entwurf einer Kunstgeschichte des 18. Jahrhunderts' von Heinrich Meyer (darin einbezogen die 'Bemerkungen eines Freundes' von C. L. Fernow) und das Verzeichnis sämtlicher Briefe Winckelmanns in chronologischer Ordnung. In den späteren Goethe-Ausgaben sind meist nur Goethes Beiträge aufgenommen. Zum Schluss drei biographische Skizzen Winckelmanns, eine von Goethe, eine von H. Meyer und die dritte von dem Altphilologen F. A. Wolf. Goethes eigener Beitrag wird auch als eine Art Kampfschrift gedeutet "wo die Wendung in der Kunst zur Nachahmung mittelalterlicher Stile und wo die vielen Uebertritte zur katholischen Kirche in den Kreisen der romantischen Dichter und Maler den Unmut Goethes auf das Höchste gesteigert hatten" (E. Beutler). "Das Glanzstück des mosaikartig zusammengesetzten Bandes ist Goethes Charakteristik Winckelmanns. Sie verzichtet von vornherein auf jede Chronologie, setzt Winckelmanns Lebensgang und Schicksale als bekannt voraus und gibt unter Stichworten ('Antike', 'Heidnisches', 'Freundschaft', 'Schönheit' usw.) in weit ausgreifenden Betrachtungen einen Überblick über die Erscheinung des Mannes als eines großartigen Repräsentanten des Zeitalters" (KNLL). Die Würdigung Winckelmanns ist von Goethe auf die Wahrnehmung und Würdigung des "Sinnlich-Höchsten" abgestimmt, in bewusstem Gegensatz zu der von ihm oft angegriffenen pietistisch-romantischen Tendenz, die sich auf "das Sittlich-Hohe" verlässt. Hier ist "Goethes klassisches Manifest und Glaubensbekenntnis, ein letztes freilich, eben noch zu Schillers Lebzeiten eigener schwerer Krankheit abgerungen. In den folgenden Jahren entsteht das Fragment 'Pandorens Wiederkunft' und der Roman 'Die Wahlverwandtschaften', in denen das Altersthema der Entsagung aufklingt. Hier aber entwirft Goethe auf seiner Lebenshöhe, mit Blick auf Winckelmann als den großen Vorgänger ... seine eigene Apotheose des allseitig ausgebildeten Menschen" (KNLL). Diese meisterhaft durchgeführte Skizze bezeichnet in Goethes Werk den Entwurf einer antifaustischen Verklärung der reinen Immanenz. So heißt es auf S. 394: "Der Mensch vermag gar Manches durch zweckmäßigen Gebrauch einzelner Kräfte, er vermag das Außerordentliche durch Verbindung mehrerer Fähigkeiten; aber das Einzige, ganz Unerwartete leistet er nur, wenn sich sämmtliche Eigenschaften gleichmäßig in ihm vereinigen ... Wenn die gesunde Natur des Menschen als ein Ganzes wirkt, wenn er sich in der Welt als in einem großen, schönen, würdigen und werthen Ganzen fühlt, wenn das harmonische Behagen ihm ein reines, freyes Entzücken gewährt; dann würde das Weltall, wenn es sich selbst empfinden könnte, als an sein Ziel gelangt aufjauchzen und den Gipfel des eigenen Werdens und Wesens bewundern. Denn wozu dient all der Aufwand von Sonnen und Planeten und Monden, von Sternen und Milchstraßen, von Cometen und Nebelflecken, von gewordenen und werdenden Welten, wenn sich nicht zuletzt ein glücklicher Mensch unbewußt seines Daseyns erfreut?" - Exlibris. Vorsätze leimschattig, frisches Exemplar. - Goed. IV 3, 376, 125. Hagen 295. Hirzel A 256. Meyer 754. Kippenberg I 383. Fischer, Cotta, 515.

        Wissen, Glaube und Ahndung (Knowing, Faith and Presentiment)

      J. C. G. Göpfrdt, Jena 1805 - TP + [I]-XII = Vorrede + [XIII]-[XIV] = Inhaltanzeige + half title + [3]-327 + [329]-[335] = Index, small Octavo. First Edition. Fries was Hegel's great academic competitor and enemy throughout their lives and "there was certainly no love lost between [them]; both Fries's comments about Hegel in his letters to friends and Hegel's comments on Fries are equally nasty Fries was an outspoken public and private critic of the whole line of thought that ran from Fichte to Schelling, [and he] did little to conceal his opinion that the whole movement - especially that represented by Schelling - was not just mistaken but was outright patent nonsense. [He] was professionally at first more successful than Hegel." ((Pinkard, Hegel, p. 221). The book is the first work published by Fries after his appointment as professor in philosophy and mathematics in Heidelberg - a post that Hegel himself had coveted at the time but did not get. The book was "a popular exposition of his doctrine of a three-fold approach to reality Fries followed Kant in the over-all architectonic of his philosophy and in specific doctrines. Corresponding to Kant's three Critiques, he distinguished three approaches or attitudes toward reality - knowing, faith and presage, or presentiment. We know things only as appearance to a peculiarly human sensibility and understanding. But we have faith in the reality of the world of real moral agents under eternal moral laws. Our understanding is aware of this world only negatively, as a limitation of the empirical world, through the Ideas of Reason. Finally, through presage or presentiment, a pure and disinterested feeling akin to the experience of the beautiful and the sublime, we are given the assurance that the world of appearances and the real world are not two worlds but one, and that the former is a manifestation of the latter - a finite projection of the infinite into the finite." (EP, Vol. III, p. 253) Contemporary marbled boards and spine with gilt ornaments and gilt title. Spine edges worn as are the head and toe of spine. Former owner's bookplate to inside front cover. A lovely copy. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Niklaus von Flüe.

      - Bleistift, mit Bleistiftlinie umrandet, auf festem chamoisfarbenem Velin, links unten signiert Hs Bendel. gz.". 24,4:27,3 cm. Ein wenig fleckig. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Flachmaler absolvierte der Schweizer Künstler Hans Bendel eine Ausbildung an der Münchner Akademie bei W. von Kaulbach (1805-1874) und J. Schlotthauer (1789-1869). Zusammen mit Kaulbach besuchte er 1838/39 Rom. Bendel wurde vor allem als Historienmaler bekannt und schuf zahlreiche Zeichnungen und Kartons zu Wandfresken mit Themen aus heimischer Sage und Geschichte. Daneben arbeitete er auch erfolgreich als Buchillustrator. Sein Hauptwerk, ein Zyklus von vier Darstellungen zur Schweizer Geschichte, befindet sich in der Villa Charlottenfels in Schaffhausen, die Kartons dazu im Museum Solothurn. Einer davon, „Niklaus von der Flüe in Stans", behandelt eine Episode aus dem Leben des 1648 seliggesprochenen Niklaus von Flüe oder Bruder Klaus (1417-1487). Dieser war ein wohlhabender Bauer, der auch Ratsherr seines Kantons und Richter seiner Gemeinde war. 1467 entschied er sich jedoch, seine Familie zu verlassen und sich als Pilger auf Wanderschaft zu begeben. Nach einer Vision kehrte er indes bald um und ließ sich in der Nähe seiner Familie, in der Ranftschlucht, nieder. Hier führte er ein asketisches Einsiedlerleben, das ganz auf das Gebet, der intensiven Betrachtung der Leiden Christi, ausgerichtet war. Zugleich betätigte er sich als Seelsorger nicht nur für die einfachen Leute. So war sein Rat auch bei ausländischen Staatsoberhäuptern gefragt. Er soll zahlreiche Visionen gehabt haben und sich in den letzten 19 Jahren seines Lebens allein von frischem Quellwasser ernährt haben. In der Bildenden Kunst wird er meist als hagerer, bärtiger Mann mit Stock und dem Bätti, einer Gebetsschnur mit 50 Perlen, dargestellt. Unserer Blatt wird möglicherweise im Zusammenhang mit dem oben erwähnten Karton entstanden sein, wenn hier auch keine historisch bedeutsame Szene abgebildet ist, sondern eine eher alltägliche Begebenheit, nämlich eine um Rat suchende junge Frau.

        The Spring-bok, or Leaping Antelope.

      London: Samuel Daniell, 1805. - Single sheet (17 ¾ x 23 ¾ inches). Fine aquatint engraving of an antelope with original hand color. First edition. A stunning hand-colored aquatint of an antelope from Samuel Daniell's "African Scenery and Animals," which has been called "the scarcest and most valuable of the large atlas folios of South African illustrations. The two volumes form a most magnificent work" (Mendelssohn). This beautiful illustration shows the springbok, an extremely fast antelope-gazelle found in southwestern Africa. "Unable to make a living as a landscape painter in London, Daniell travelled to the Cape of Good Hope in 1799 in the suite of Sir George Yonge, governor and commander-in-chief at the Cape. His subsequent friendship with Lieutenant-General Francis Dundas resulted in his appointment as secretary and draughtsman to a mission to visit the country of the Booshuanas (Bechuanaland) under Mr Truter and Dr Somerville, in October 1801, to purchase cattle to replace those lost in the Cape Frontier War. During the perilous 700 mile trek to Lataku, the seat of King Mooliahaben of the Booshuanas, Daniell made a large number of drawings of the landscape, the wild animals, and the inhabitants of the interior. The full account of this journey is given as an appendix to Sir John Barrow's Voyage to Cochin China (1805), in which four engravings after Daniell's drawings are included. A year later the second edition of Sir John Barrow's Travels into the Interior of South Africa included eight engravings, by Thomas Medland, after Daniell's drawings. Daniell returned to England in 1803 and immediately began to work up his drawings for publication in his most important work African Scenery and Animals" (Charles Greig for DNB). Picturing Animals in Britain, 1750-1850, 86. Abbey. Travel 321. Mendelssohn I, p. 412. Tooley 168.
