There is a small ink library stamp to the title page. The map of the Island is somewhat browned.

Lacks the half-title page but otherwise complete with index, ads, and all plates listed. Illustrated with 2 maps, 9 full-page engraved plates, and a facsimile of a letter of Toussaint. From the World Digital Library website: "Marcus Rainsford was a soldier who served for many years with the British Army in the British West Indies. He visited Haiti in 1799, where he became an admirer of Toussaint L'Ouverture, the former slave who led Haiti’s revolution and struggle to end slavery. This book is Rainsford's account of the slave uprising that began in August 1791 and the subsequent fighting that, at different times, involved French, Spanish, and British troops and various factions in Haiti. The book includes the first known representations of Toussaint, which were engravings made from Rainsford's sketches and descriptions. Also included are extensive documentation of the revolution and Rainsford's disturbing accounts of the brutal treatment of the slave population by their French masters, as well as of the atrocities committed by all sides in the course of the struggle. Toussaint died in Paris in April 1803, after having been seized by French forces acting under orders from Napoleon Bonaparte, who in 1802 sent an army to Haiti in attempt to reassert French control. Rainsford's wholly admiring account of Toussaint appears in chapter 5 of the work." The plates and maps in this volume depict the following subjects: 1. The Author in Conversation. 2. Map of the Island. (folding) 3. Plan of Cape Francois. (folding) 4. View of the Temple erected by the Blacks. 5. Court-Martial of the Blacks. 6. Benevolence of a Female of Colour. 7. Toussaint L'Ouverture. 8. Mode of exterminating the Blacks by the French. 9. Revenge of the Blacks on the French. 10. Devastation of the Blood-Hounds (attacking a family in the Woods). 11. Fac-Simile of a Letter of Toussaint. 12. Mode of rearing Blood Hounds. Marcus Rainsford's work printed a year after Saint-Domingue officially became Haiti, is a retrospective of the history of the island up until that time. The plates include some wonderful, dramatic, and sometimes incendiary engravings. The work also includes an almost regal portrait of Toussaint L'Ouverture. The engravings contained in this work are probably some of the most powerful among the illustrative history of the Haitian revolution." From the John Carter Brown Library Page "Remember Haiti.

        The Works of Edmund Spenser

      London - F. C. and J. Rivington, 1805 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A set of the poetical works of Edmund Spenser, widely regarded as one of the greatest English poets. Containing all his best-known poetry, including The Faerie Queen, April and Astrophel. Spenser's masterpiece is an extensive poem The Faerie Queene. The first three books of The Faerie Queene were published in 1590, and a second set of three books were published in 1596. This extended epic poem deals with the adventures of knights, dragons, ladies in distress, etc. yet it is also an extended allegory about the moral life and what makes for a life of virtue. With engraved frontispiece of Spenser to Volume I. Spenser was called a Poet's Poet and was admired by William Wordsworth, John Keats, Lord Byron and Alfred Lord Tennyson, among others. The language of his poetry is purposely archaic, reminiscent of earlier works such as The Canterbury Tales of Geoffrey Chaucer and Il Canzoniere of Francesco Petrarca, whom Spenser greatly admired. Spenser's Epithalamion is the most admired of its type in the English language. It was written for his wedding to his young bride, Elizabeth Boyle. The poem consists of 365 long lines, corresponding to the days of the year; 68 short lines, representing the sum of the 52 weeks, 12 months, and 4 seasons of the annual cycle; and 24 stanzas, corresponding to the diurnal and sidereal hours. Complete in eight volumes. Condition: Rebound in half-morocco bindings with marbled boards and original spine labels. Externally smart, with some minor wear to the spines and some sunfading to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Institutional stamps torecto of front free-endpaper. Pagesarespotted, with some foxingthroughout. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        FOUCHE, Joseph, Duke of Otranto (1763-1820). Napoleon's Minister of Police.

      - Letter Signed (?fouche?) to the Minister of War [Marshal Berthier] regarding the surveillance of former General Rigaud in Tours.1 page folio in French with an attractive vignette of the Ministry of Police, Paris, 2 frimaire an 14 [23 November 1805]. Trans: ?I have received, Sir, the letter which you sent me on 16 Brumaire last, regarding the former General Rigaud, coloured man, under surveillance at Tours. His Excellency the Minister of the Navy [Decrès] had already passed on to me the information contained in your letter, and the Councillor of State in charge of the first arrondissement for the Police was to have arranged for special surveillance on the part of the civil authorities on M. Rigaud.?General André Rigaud, son of a white father and black mother, had travelled to Santo Domingo with General Leclerc [husband of Napoleon's sister Pauline] on an expedition against Rigaud's old rival, Toussaint l'Ouverture. Always uneasy with his parentage and of a volatile temperament, Rigaud had earlier proved a brilliant soldier, but a poor politician. The expedition failed and upon his return to France, Rigaud was briefly held prisoner. As we can see here, even after his release, he was kept under close surveillance by the police.An attractive and interesting letter, in excellent condition.

      Lyon. 1805.. [6],x,479pp. plus folding map and folding plate, both on light blue paper. Contemporary calf, spine gilt with leather label, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down. Lightly tanned. Closed tear in gutter of folding map, neatly repaired. Very good. The rare first edition of this important narrative. The author arrived in New York in 1801 and travelled westward by way of the Ohio to St. Louis, ascending the Missouri River as far as central South Dakota with a fur trading expedition in the summer of 1802. The question has been raised as to whether Perrin du Lac himself made this trip or used without acknowledgement the journal of the St. Louis trader, Jean Baptiste Trudeau, but the veracity of the account is unquestioned. It is by far the most important published account of the Upper Missouri fur trade in its early days, including a great deal of information about tribes along the river. The large map of the Missouri River, beautifully engraved, is by far the most detailed map of its watershed up to that point. Wheat describes it as "the earliest published map of the Trans- Mississippi region which can be said to display even the faintest resemblance to accuracy." It charts the river as far as the Arikara villages in central South Dakota. The folding plate illustrates "Mamoth tel qu'il existe au Musaeum a Philadelphie." One of the few major narratives of the trans-Mississippi prior to Lewis and Clark, here in the very rare first edition. There were two issues published the same year, the other in Paris, with the same collations, but Howes and Wagner-Camp consider the Lyon issue to be the first. The English edition of 1807 is an abridgement and contains an inferior, reduced version of the map. STREETER SALE 1773. WAGNER-CAMP 3:1. HOWES P244, "b." WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 256. CLARK II:52.

Sabe-se que professara a regra de Santo Inácio, entrando na Companhia de Jesus, mas não consta o ano da sua profissão. Quando foram de Portugal expulsos os seus confrades em 1759 era Mestre de Teologia no Colégio da Lapa, que a Ordem tinha em Lamego. Dirigiu-se para a Alemanha, e aí foi mestre dos príncipes de uma casa reinante, sendo-lhe conferida em remuneração desse serviço uma pensão, que continuou a gozar em Portugal, para onde regressou em 1783. Restituído à pátria, foi para a sua terra natal, e aí vivia em casa de uns parentes, mostrando-se em tudo um verdadeiro filósofo prático. Trouxera de Alemanha consigo um gabinete de física, que lhe servia de estudo e recreação. Criou ele mesmo um pequeno jardim botânico, composto na maior parte de plantas exóticas, cuja cultura ele próprio dirigia. Mandou também construir uma casa de madeira e envidraçada, para nela recolher enxames de abelhas, e aí estudava através dos vidros o seu regime e trabalho. Assim passou entretido a última quadra da vida, até falecer em 1806, quando contava 80 anos de idade?

        Importante lettera con firma autografa Milano, 8 maggio 1805

      Importante lettera in francese con firma autografa "Talleyrand" indirizzata a Édouard Bignon e riguardante l'entrata di Napoleone a Milano. Con dovizia di particolari Talleyrand racconta che "Sua Maestà Imperiale e Reale ha appena fatto il suo ingresso a Milano oggi alle ore 5 del pomeriggio" visitando l'Università, interrogando allievi e professori. L'autore della lettera spiega infine che la maggior parte delle potenze ha riconosciuto l'Imperatore e mandato i propri ministri per felicitarsi prendendo parte a questo avvenimento che consolida la pace continentale. Charles-Maurice Talleyrand servì la monarchia di Luigi XVI, poi la Rivoluzione francese nelle sue varie fasi, l'impero di Napoleone Bonaparte e poi di nuovo la monarchia, questa volta quella di Luigi XVIII, fratello e successore del primo monarca servito. Èdouard Bignon all’epoca della missiva era ministro plenipotenziario a Parigi. 4 pagine con testo redatto su 3 e 1/4. Tracce di piegatura.

        British Synonymy

      1805 - Paris - Parsons and Galignani, 1804 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two volumes including British Synonymy and A Dissertation on Language in General by Piozzi and Kett. Bound in calf leather with gilt lettering and decoration. The two volumes are from Parsons and Galignani's British Library in verse and prose. Hester Lynch Thrale, and after her second marriage, Hester Lynch Piozzi, 17411821, was a British diarist, author, and patron of the arts. Her diaries and correspondence are an important source of information about Samuel Johnson and eighteenth-century life. Due to her first husband's financial status, she was able to enter London society, as a result of which she met Samuel Johnson, James Boswell, Oliver Goldsmith and other literary figures. With her second husband, Hester retired to Brynbella, a specially-built country house on her Bach y Graig estate. Piozzi came to realize that her real strength lay in non-fictional prose; her aspirations were towards history and philology. Her sustained interest in languages, etymology, word play, and punning eventually bore fruit in British Synonymy, or, An Attempt at Regulating the Choice of Words in Familiar Conversation (1794). An ambitious work, recalling in its preface her own Welsh origins, it specifically addressed itself to those who, like her husband, found English taxing. (DNB)Henry Kett, 1761 - 1825, was an Englishteacher and writer. He was admitted to Trinity College, Oxford, in 1777 and took a fellowship there in 1784, where he remained for near forty years. He undertook various college offices, was an able and kindly tutor, and an impressive preacher who made no enemies within the college. . . his interests were eclectic and he enjoyed the lighter side of life. As a writer, Kett first venture was poetry, before turning to theories of education, and then a varying number of works, including biographies and travelogues. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. The hinges are just starting, and the inner hinges are strained. There is some wear to the extremities, including some bumping and rubbing, with slight marks. Internally the pages are generally bright with occasional spots. Thereare nameplateson thefront pastedown, with insitutional ink stamps and ink signatureson the front free-endpapers. Overall the condition is very good..

Harry Calvert (1763?-1826) was at one time the Assistant Adjutant- General and later Adjutant-General of the forces from 1799-1818 and it was under his instigation that a 'Corps of Light Troops' be formed. , Because of their abysmal showing during the War of Independence with the United States of America, the revival of the Light Horse Volunteers as a fighting force of the first rank began in earnest in 1794 primarily under Light Horse Volunteers and was originally commissioned as a second auxiliary force after the militia and 'a man enrolled in them achieved a modest standard of living and moral strength'. Herries was one of 5 men chosen in 1780 to petition the King to increase the strength & money of the L.H.V., became Captain of the first troop in 1794 and wrote this volume of instructions on military equitation, rules and regulations that had been so sadly lacking before. Herries became a Lieut-Col. in 1794 and a full Colonel on 19 July 1797. He died in 1819. Laid in is a small tobacco trade card of a British soldier from the Kinney Tobacco Company. Scarce

      Washington, Printed by William Duane & Son, 1805.. 12pp. Dbd. Near fine. In a half morocco box. The original printing of the important 1804 treaty made between William Henry Harrison and Sac (Sauk) and Fox chiefs at St. Louis, through which the Sauk and Fox were coerced into ceding the greater part of their lands to the United States. Four years before the treaty was signed, William Henry Harrison was appointed governor of Indiana Territory, in which one of his immediate tasks was to obtain minor cessions of Indian territory along the Illinois River. In August 1804 a handful of white squatters were killed in a fight on Sauk and Fox hunting grounds about forty miles north of St. Louis, providing Harrison with an excuse to prosecute a much larger demand in that region. In late October, Quashquame, a minor Sauk chief, and other "head men" of the Sauk and Fox arrived in St. Louis for a council with Harrison, bringing with them one of the accused killers, who was immediately put behind bars. After a week of pleading for his release and drinking heavily at the local grog shops, Quashquame and his delegation were assembled before Harrison on Nov. 3, "confused, intimidated, and either drunk or hung over" (Channick, p.8). To their surprise and befuddlement, the Indians were read the present land treaty, which they were expected to sign that day with their marks. The 2,000- word treaty traded the Sauk and Fox's rights to 23,000 square miles of their lands in present-day Illinois, Wisconsin, and Missouri, for the "friendship and protection" of the United States together with a one-time payment of goods worth $2,234.50, and annual payments worth $1000. Herbert S. Channick notes in his 1998 ILLINOIS HERITAGE article on the subject that considering "that their winter fur catch was reputed to have brought the Sauk and Fox as much as $60,000 in a single season, the deal was preposterous on its face" (pp.8-9). One of the country's great swindles for Indian lands in the Mississippi Valley, helping set the stage for the Black Hawk War of 1832. An excessively rare document, as are most Indian treaties printed before the burning of Washington in 1814 and the emergence of the U.S. Congressional Serial Set in 1817. Two copies are listed between Sabin, Shaw & Shoemaker, and OCLC, at the Massachusetts Historical Society and the British Museum. SABIN 96616. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 9638. Herbert S. Channick, "William Henry Harrison Steals Western Illinois From the Sauk and Fox" in ILLINOIS HERITAGE, Vol. I, No. 2, Winter 1998, pp.6-10. DAB VIII, pp.348-52. DAH V, pp.33-34.
