        Secretary of the Treasury Gallatin notifies Collectors of Customs that an act of Congress ìconcerning the registering and recording of ships and vesselsî has ìfull force and effectî in the territories ceded to the United States by the Louisiana Purchase

      Signed Letter & Signed Free Frank! Circular Letter Signed ìAlbert Gallatinî as Jeffersonís Secretary of the Treasury, 1p, 8î x 10î. Treasury Department [Washington, D.C.], January 31, 1805. Integral leaf is franked ìAlbert Gallatin,î reddish brown postmarked ìWASHN CITY FEB 12î and stamped ìFREE.î Clerically addressed from ìTreasury Departmentî to ìJeremiah Nicholls Esquire / Collector of Customs / Chester / Maryland.î Light toning at folds. Fine condition. In full, ìIt being found by experience that the rule which has heretofore governed the collectors in the issuing of sea-letters, in pursuance of the instructions from this department, of May 13th, 1793, has become liable to abuse; I am directed by the President of the United States, to request, that no sea-letters be granted in future, to any ships or vessels, which being owned in whole or in part by naturalized citizens residing abroad, are precluded from the benefit of registers, under the first section of an act of Congress to amend the ëAct concerning the registering and recording of ships and vessels,í passed on the 27th of March, 1804.î This printed, personally signed, circular letter was sent to all Collectors of Customs. On May 13, 1793, Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, in a circular letter, told each Collector of Customs, in part, ìYou will be pleased particularly to observe, that these sea-letters are to be issued to all vessels, bound to foreign ports, which are, really and bona fide, wholly the property of one or more citizens of the United States Ã? No vessel in which any foreigner is interested wholly, or even in part, directly, or indirectly, either by holding the legal title to her, or by any trust, or other device, is entitled to the benefit of one of these documents; and you will take the most especial care to prevent deceptions and collusions in that respectÃ?î Evidently, these 1793 instructions had ìbecome liable to abuseî and resulted in a request by President Jefferson in the letter here offered. ìAn act giving effect to the laws of the United States within the territories ceded to the United States by the treaty of the 30th of April, 1803, between the United States and the French Republic, and for other purposesî signed by President Jefferson on March 27, 1804, stated, in part, that ìAn act concerning the registering and recording of ships and vessels Ã? shall extend to and have full force and effect in the above mentioned territories,î the land acquired by the Louisiana Purchase.

      - Discussing the candidacy of Parnell (Sir John Parnell, 1774-1801) for Queen's County, and declaring that as he had no time in which to obtain Ponsonby's opinion he had given his consent. '. Ld Temple informed me that he had received from Parnell the most unequivocal assurances that his Politicks would be with us, and asked me whether upon this declaration I should wish him to be supported. . I answered Ld Temple that I had no doubt about the propriety of supporting a Man of Parnell's family & character if he was decidedly with us. . Pray let me know that I have not been doing mischief. .'William Brabazon Ponsonby, first Baron Ponsonby (1744-1806) was an Irish politician and sportsman who aligned himself firmly with the Foxite Whigs. Henry Brooke Parnell, first Baron Congleton (1776-1842, politician) had succeeded to the family estates in Queen's county in 1801 on the death of his father, Sir John Parnell (1745-1801).

        AN HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF THE BLACK EMPIRE OF HAYTI: COMPREHENDING A VIEW OF THE PRINCIPAL TRANSACTIONS IN THE REVOLUTION OF SAINT DOMINGO; WITH ITS ANTIENT AND MODERN STATE

      Albion Press Printed : Published by James Cundee, [London] 1805 - Quarto (7-3/4" x 10-1/4") bound in dark brown morocco leather with gilt-lettered morocco spine label; [ii] - xxiii, [i], 467, [blank], [7], [3] pages. 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." Some browning to the preliminaries and minor foxing on some leaves. There is a small ink library stamp to the title page. The map of the Island is somewhat browned. The plan of Cape Francois has suffered from indifferent folding and is missing a small piece on the bottom center of the plan, but otherwise the volume has ample margins, clear print, and generally clean pages throughout. All of the plates and maps are excellent impressions. The front joint is split, but the board is holding very firm by the cords. Very Good [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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..

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.

BOUND WITH the work analysed by Levasseur: REFLEXIONS CRITIQUES SUR L'ART MODERNE DE FORTIFIER, ou Motifs pour approprier, contre les moyens modernes de l'attaque, les avantages simples, faciles et toujours majeurs du sens vertical a grandes dimensions; ce qui, en resultat, (seconde et future partie du present ouvrage) reconduit l'art fortifiant a son premier et plus ancien trace, les enceintes en lignes droites sur chaque front et sans bastions ni ouvrages detaches; enceintes d'ailleurs tres-elevees, et qui doivent etre suffisamment epaisses, abritees, abritantes et communiquees.

        VOYAGE DANS LES DEUX LOUISIANES, ET CHEZ LES NATIONS SAUVAGES DU MISSOURI, PAR LES ETATS-UNIS, L'OHIO ET LES PROVINCES QUI LE BORDENT, EN 1801, 1802, ET 1803

      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.

Nello stesso anno, per una differenza di opinioni con Talleyrand sulla questione dell'alleanza austriaca fu costretto a ritirarsi dalla carriera politica. 8 pagine di cui le prime 5 redatte.

        The Beauties of ScotlandIn five volumes

      05 - Edinburgh - Arch. Constable and Coand John Brown, 1805 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A fascinating set of topography exploring the Agriculture, Commerce, Mines, and Manufactures; of the Population, Cities, Towns, Villages, of each County within Scotland. Really wants a rebind, but a good set and priced to allow for a quality rebind. Probably around 650 when done. Illustrated throughout with103picturesque plates in total, featuring illustrated title pages to the front of each volume. Collation presumed complete. Reflecting his varied professional experiences, Forsyth's chief works include Principles and Practice of Agriculture (2 vols. 1804), The Principles of Moral Science (vol. i. 1805), Political Fragments (1830), and Observations on the Book of Genesis (1846). However, his best-known work is The Beauties of Scotland (5 vols. 18058), which still maintains popularity today, due in part to the many engravings which it contains of Scottish towns and places of interest. Complete in five volumes. Condition: Rebound in decorative calf with gilt letter to the spines. Externally, all are a trifle rubbed with shelfwear to the head and tail of spine. All joints are strained and may possibly detach in the post despite our best efforts. Internally, all are generally firmly bound with bright pages. Generally clean throughout with occasional instances of spotting , particularly to first and last pages. Library bookplate to the front pastedown of each volume. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

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?

L'autore fu  un celebre anatomista tedesco, in epoca giovanile appassionato  di speologia tanto che diedero il suo nome a una grotta e  all'ursus spelaeus. Come anatomista ebbe grande rilievo, di lui prendono il nome tre strutture anatomiche: La fossa di Rosenmüller o recesso naso-faringeo laterale, La ghiandola di Rosenmüller, la porzione palpebrale della ghiandola lacrimale, l'Organo di Rosenmüller o epooforon. Entrato all'Università di Lipsia nel 1786, ne ricevette  il grado di Magister nel 1792. Successivamente studiò a Erlangen e nel 1794 fu nominato Prosector dell'istituto anatomico di Lipsia. Conseguì il dottorato nel 1797, e dal 1802 fino alla sua morte fu attivo come professore di anatomia e chirurgia. Dal 1804 al 1809 ha anche ricoperto la carica di  Physicus all'università.  Esemplare in discrete condizioni, alcune diffuse fioriture per quanto lievi, alcune carte lievemente ossidate, più marcatamente  poche di esse, lievi abrasioni al dorso e al piatto posteriore della legatura. Complessivamente ancora un buon esemplare.
