        Proceedings of a General Court Martial of the Line, Held by Order.

      1805 - A Rare English Court Martial from 1805 [Trial]. [Graham, Captain Henry Charles Edward Vernon, Defendant]. Proceedings of a General Court Martial of the Line, Held by Order of, And in Pursuance of a Warrant from Lieutenant General His Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, (Thereunto Duly Authorized by Warrant from His Majesty) Commanding the Forces within the South Western District; at Dorchester Barracks, In the County of Dorset, On Monday the 2d Day of September, 1805. Weymouth: Printed by M. Virtue, [1805]. 84 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent quarter cloth over paper-covered boards, hand-lettered title label to spine. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, light foxing to a few leaves, light browning to title page. A very good copy. * Only edition located. Captain Henry Charles Edward Vernon Graham, of the 15th (or King's) Regiment of [Light] Dragoons was faced with two charges. The first charge was "scandalous and infamous behaviour, unbecoming the character of an officer and gentleman" occasioned by accusing an officer, Captain Broadhurst,"before a Sergeant of his Troop, of having behaved improperly" by observing to the sergeant "that he had a great mind to put Captain Broadhurst under arrest" (6). The second charge related to letters sent to Capt. Graham to his Commanding Officer stating that "the whole of the Junior Officers [were] forming a systematic plan to drive him [Capt. Graham] out of the Regiment (7).In the event, Graham was found not guilty on the first charge but guilty on the second, for which it was ordered that he be reprimanded by the commanding officer in the presence of the field officers of the Regiment. Graham appears to have sponsored this publication. The trial ends with an afterword by Graham that adds his perspective and notes that he printed a number of copies of his trial report for "the information of my relations, and those friends most interested in my welfare" (83-84). No copies listed on COPAC. OCLC locates one copy worldwide (Yale University). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Untrimmed in original pink paper boards with title printed in black to covers, rebacked and recornered late c.19th in dark purple roan with new yellow surface-paper endpapers, rolled bands gilt to spine forming compartments, second and third gilt-lettered direct. Bookplate of Harold Blundell to front pastedown. Front joint skilfully restored, superficial cracking to roan along spine, extremities worn, staining to front cover, rear cover rubbed, foxing to title-page and earlier leaves, scattered light spotting otherwise. A good copy only. First and only edition of this commercially very scarce work translated from a 16th-century manuscript and once identified as a formative influence on the oriental yearnings of the young Lord Byron, a thesis which has since proved controversial as no explicit reference to the text has yet been identified in Byron's writings (Cochran, ed., Byron and Orientalism, p. 71). Stephen Weston was a noted antiquarian and classical scholar. The final section of the text is an addendum to his Specimen of the Conformity of the European languages, particularly the English, with the Oriental languages, especially the Persian, published in 1802. He also wrote a partial translation of the Shah Nameh and compiled an anthology of Persian distiches. Bibliotheca Marsdeniana p. 254. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Supplement to the Salem Gazette, Tuesday, December 3, 1805

      1805 - A Minister Accused of Incest and Domestic Violence [Trial]. "Marcus" [Pseudonym of Daniel Dana (1771-1859)]. Supplement to the Salem Gazette. [Text Begins:] Mr. Cushing, As the Extraordinary Result of the Ecclesiastical Council at Ipswich has been Officially Published. Salem: Tuesday, December 3, 1805 17-1/4" x 10-3/4" newspaper broadsheet, untrimmed edges, four-column text on recto. Light browning, single vertical and horizontal fold lines, faint early owner signature to top margin. * Joseph Dana [1742-1827], minister of the South Church, Ipswich, was accused by his wife Elizabeth of physical abuse and committing incest with his stepdaughter sometime in October, 1805. Dana was tried by the church council, which failed to clearly exonerate him. The council's ambiguous deliberations, published in the press, brought forth this reply by Daniel Dana, Joseph's son and minister of the Presbyterian Church at Newburyport. Signing himself "Marcus," Daniel Dana vindicates his father's character and defends his conduct. Refuting the worst conclusions of the council, he claims that the wife is emotionally unstable, has been fixated on their daughter and the question of incest and has exaggerated whatever "physical abuse" he may have committed against her under extreme provocation. This piece first appeared in the Newbury Herald; shortly after this printing in the Salem Gazette it was separately published in pamphlet form under the title, A Reply to the Vindication of the Result of the Late Council, Newburyport, Newburyport, Jan, 1806 (Shaw & Shoemaker, American Imprints 10787). It was answered in turn by Leonard Woods in A Testimony Against the Publications of Marcus, an A Vindication of the Character of Mrs. Elizabeth Dana, both Newburyport, 1806. (Shaw & Shoemaker 11897 & 11770). This broadside supplement appears to be unrecorded; it is not held by the American Antiquarian Society or listed on OCLC.

        [LATIN VULGATE] JOB with the GLOSSA ORDINARIA, decorated manuscript on parchment, in Latin

      1805. ONE OF THE EARLIEST EXAMPLES OF THE COMPLETE BOOK OF JOB WITH THE ORDINARY GLOSS FROM THE CISTERCIAN ABBEY OF CHIARAVALLE DELLA COLOMBA. Manuscript on parchment, in Latin, Northern Italy, c. 1125-40. Dimensions 260 x 150 mm. 90 folios, biblical text written in a caroline minuscule in twenty-one lines, glosses copied in smaller script on up to sixty-seven lines, one-line red initials in biblical text, rustic display capitals for incipit, explicit, and titles, LARGE DISPLAY CAPITLAS in red and place on f. 1 added in late twelfth century. BINDING: Old brown sheep over pasteboard, spine with four raised bands with labelled fitted box. TEXT: The book of Job with the Ordinary Gloss (Glossa Ordinaria), consisting of the biblical text, copied in a distinctive, larger script, accompanied by selected quotations from patristic and medieval commentaries, copied in a smaller script on the same page. Texts by numerous authors are reflected in the commentary, including Jerome, Augustine, Gregory the Great, Isidore, and Bede. The Ordinary Gloss on the Bible, from which the manuscript was excerpted, was one of the twelfth century's greatest intellectual achievements, creating a text that was used as the standard school text to the end of the Middle Ages and even later. The text was not compiled or conceived of by a single author, but was the result of a long process over the course of the twelfth century that gradually grew to include the complete Bible. The textual history of the Gloss on Job seems to begin at Laon in the early twelfth century. It was one of the early books glossed and relied heavily on Gregory the Great's Moralia on Job. This manuscript also reveals secondary sources and betrays evidence of its use. Particularly interesting are the long lines that restructure the gloss. Modern chapters were added in a later hand. There are also numerous nota marks in a neat, calligraphically pleasing form, and lines alongside glosses that probably were added for the same purpose. PROVENANCE: Based on the script, layout, and ruling, the manuscript was written in Italy in the second quarter of the twelfth century. An ownership note reveals it was at the Cistercian Abbey of Chiaravalle della Colomba (Alseno, Italy) around the period of its foundation in 1136 where it obtained signs of conscientious use in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The library was dispersed in 1805 during the Napoleonic era. Sold at Christie's, June 25, 1997, lot 21. Later belonged to Rick Adams and, most recently, a private European collection. CONDITION: Staining and rodent damage to the edges of ff. 87-90, occasional spotting and cockling but generally in very good condition. Bindingrebacked with parts of the spine laid down, corners repaired. Full description and pictures available (TM 877). Book seller inventory #877.

        Group of Three Letters to Louis Malesherbes Goldsborough Concerning The Expedition to Roanoke Island, North Carolina and the Confederate Ironclad Virginia, 1862, from Van Brunt, Captain of the USS Minnesota

      three letters, octavo and quarto, 10 pages, in very good, clean and legible condition. Louis Malesherbes Goldsborough (1805-1877), naval officer, assumed command on September 23, 1861 of the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron off Hampton Roads, Virginia. There he awaited the appearance of the formidable ironclad Virginia, which the Confederacy was building from the hull of the USS Merrimack at Norfolk. Early in 1862 Goldsborough's proposal to capture Roanoke Island, North Carolina, resulted in a combined army-navy expedition, the army commanded by General Ambrose Burnside and a fleet of some 100 vessels commanded by Goldsborough. Goldsborough's squadron destroyed the small defending Confederate naval force and provided protective fire for the 12,000-man unit that landed and secured the island. Despite his receiving the Thanks of Congress for his victory at Roanoke Island, Goldsborough was criticized by Navy Secretary Gideon Welles for not being at Hampton Roads when the Virginia attacked vessels of the North Atlantic Squadron there, on the 8th and 9th of March. Although he returned to Hampton Roads immediately upon learning of the danger, Goldsborough failed to lure the ironclad to deep water, where he believed he would have had a better chance of destroying it. His failure to act more aggressively resulted in severe criticisms from both the public and the press. January 28, 1862, U.S. Ship Minnesota, Hampton Roads, Van Brunt to L.M. Goldsborough "My Dear Goldsborough, I recd your two letters of the 22d & 26th last evening they relieved us all from great anxiety this is the first we have heard from you since you left & as the weather was so unfavourable I had doubts of the safety of some of your small craft - all your vessels have left here with the exception of the "White Hall" she is at "Newport News" pronounced unseaworthy. Last evening 16 contrabands stole a boat from "Sorrels Point" and got on board one of our tugs & are now on board this ship. They state that there about 2500 men there and they think about 5000 in and around Norfolk - 1200 left for Roanoke Island. They also say that they were told that the Merrimac came out of dock yesterday & that it is their intention to capture the "Cumberland & Congress" - we shall see, I have my doubts, we are keeping a sharp look out for her - I have no doubts of your success - the whole country is waiting anxiously for news from your expedition - ... Give us the earliest news of your victory & do not let the army rob you of what you are just entitled - None will rejoice more heartily at your success than your old friend & messmate..." February 7, 1862, U. S. Minnesota, Van Brunt to Goldsborough "My dear Goldsborough, Capt. Poor who is now with me says there is no "9 inch shrapnel" here - I will see Marston and advise his sending one of the Tugs to Annapolis for some. Nothing new here I send your mail by the R. I. she sails in about one hour and I have only rec'd your letter from Hatteras within the last hour so that I have no time to do more than to say God Bless and protect you - in haste..." February 11, 1862, U.S. Ship Minnesota, Hampton Roads, Van Brunt to L.M. Goldsborough "My dear Goldsborough, We are upon "tinder hooks" waiting to hear of your success - we have all sorts of reports, such as that you had been repulsed twice & that the fight was still going and yesterday we heard by "Flag of Truce" that you had possession of "Roanoke Island" - after a desperate fight. You may imagine how anxious all your friends must feel. We believe that you have had a fight & that you have succeeded but we want particulars & from reliable authority - two or three vessels have sailed from here for Hatteras without my knowledge. This I trust will not occur again as I have given orders to the officer sent for the mail to go to the Quartermasters office daily & enquire if there is any vessel about to sail for Hatteras - You must remember that the eyes of the whole country is upon your expedition. But it provokes me to see it constantly call'd the "Burnside" Expedition I had an opportunity of speaking my mind very fully a few days since to the correspondent of the N.Y. "Times" I told him that I had just read an article in one of the N.Y. papers giving an account of the landing at Hatteras and not one word was said of the Navy, he promised that that should not occur in any of his communications full justice should be done to the Navy. Thursday 13th the Stars & Stripes arrived this morng at 11 o'clk bringing us the welcome news of your success Henry VB leaves this evening with your dispatches, as soon as the news arriv'd I call'd all hands & told them the news - they gave 3 hearty cheers & 3 for the Flag Officer - we are all with you heart & hand - I send this with all the letters &c &c this evening in a steamer bound to Hatteras - We will send everything which we have here which you require by Worden, as soon as it can be placed on board. The "Young America" has gone to Annapolis for ordnance stores & I hope will bring full supplys. Tell Case I will attend to all his requests - be assured. I have omitted no opportunity to communicate with you. ... You must not stop until you have taken all the towns you reach - We must have Norfolk, we are ready if it can be done. - The "Merrimac" will come out of dock on Monday, so says report - if she comes out of Elizabeth river I will endeavor to prevent her returning & if possible bring her down to Old-Point - we shall see. - I understand from good authority that her armament is 8 - 9 inch smooth bore guns for broad side - & one Ryfle [sic] gun of 11,000 lbs weight on bow & stern 300 men & 12 Lieuts. I intend to go alongside & grapple her. I send the late papers which will give you the gallant exploit of Frost, this together with the news of your victory comes in most excellent time as the financial affairs are now consideration in congress..."

        Report of the Trial of the Hon. Samuel Chase, one of the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States, before the High Court of Impeachment, composed of the Senate of the United States, for charges exhibited against him by the House of Representatives.

      Printed for Samuel Butler and George Keatinge, Baltimore 1805 - [6],12, [3]-234, [205]-244, [237]-268, 6, 68 pp. ". In the name of themselves, and of all the People of the United States, for High Crimes & Misdemeanors, supposed to have been by Him Committed, with the Necessary Documents and Official Papers, From his Impeachment to final Acquittal. Taken in Short Hand by Charles Evans, and the Arguments of Counsel revised by them from his manuscript." Complete but quite oddly numbered as issued: numbers 50-51 are omitted, numbers 205-212 repeated; extra numbers are p. 101*-112*, 212* (i.e. 213*)-234*, 237*-244*. Chase (1741-1811) was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. His impeachment and trial, the only one ever of a U.S. Supreme Court justice, was politically motivated due to his strong stance against the Republicans and Jeffersonianism. Had the Republicans been successful, the conviction would have greatly undermined the independence of the judiciary. "Chase's acquittal meant that John Marshall and his court were safe from future attacks of this kind. It also demonstrated to Jefferson and future presidents that impeachment was a clumsy and inefficient way to handle politically hostile judges. On the other hand, members of the judiciary learned that it was dangerous for judges to use the bench to express political opinions that were contrary to prevailing democratic beliefs. After this confrontation, John Marshall attempted to establish the Supreme Court as an institution that was considered "above politics" and concerned only with legal-juridical questions," (ANB).

        An Illustrative to Pilkington's Dictionary of Painters; consisting of Biographical Sketches, and One Hundred and Thirty-Nine Portraits; principally taken from the Anecdotes of Painting, &c., by Horatio Walpole, Earl of Orford

      John Stockdale, Piccadilly, London, 1805. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. Complete. A dignified if somewhat worn copy. In general venerable and pleasing condition. Fully bound with leather. Stamped Hellenic-influenced decoration (in affable, if worn condition). The Dictionary of Painters by the Reverend M Pilkington was the standard art reference book for many decades. Pilkington was a cad whose behaviour towards his former wife and others was ignored by those who found his work to be of great worth and use. In some ways it is not surprising that this "Supplement" was published by John Stockdale. Stockdale was known for his coarse manners, his efficacy as a bookseller and as a publisher unafraid of encountering the backhand of the law. Indeed, he was instrumental in ensuring an essential, long-standing change to the Libel Laws of England. This copy was owned by Thomas Wale of Shepton Mallet (who was a descendant of one of the founding Knights of the Garter). His neat signature, dated 1808, is found on the title page. There is also a waxed 'signature' from his signet ring. The front pastedown has an ex-libris plate with his decorative emblem. The page trims have decorative impressions. The boards are sound and august. The boards and spine are much worn about all edges, corners and seams. These now add character. Marbled end papers. The etchings have protective sheets that are intact, effective, also foxed. The pages, thick and certain. The pages have age-related marks and spotting and wear. In general, though, the pages are clear, generous, authentic, scholarly. A book full of character, stories, age and diligent competency. fk

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

      Glasgow: J. & J. Scrymgeour, 1805. Early edition of Adam Smith's magnum opus and cornerstone of economic thought. Octavo, 3 volumes. Bound in full calf, red morocco spine label, gilt titles and tooling to the spine. In excellent condition, with heraldic bookplates on front pastedowns, rebacked. An excellent early 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 which it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control...The Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is complete convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (PMM).

        Supplement to the Salem Gazette, Tuesday, December 3, 1805

      1805. A Minister Accused of Incest and Domestic Violence [Trial]. "Marcus" [Pseudonym of Daniel Dana (1771-1859)]. Supplement to the Salem Gazette. [Text Begins:] Mr. Cushing, As the Extraordinary Result of the Ecclesiastical Council at Ipswich has been Officially Published... Salem: Tuesday, December 3, 1805 17-1/4" x 10-3/4" newspaper broadsheet, untrimmed edges, four-column text on recto. Light browning, single vertical and horizontal fold lines, faint early owner signature to top margin. * Joseph Dana [1742-1827], minister of the South Church, Ipswich, was accused by his wife Elizabeth of physical abuse and committing incest with his stepdaughter sometime in October, 1805. Dana was tried by the church council, which failed to clearly exonerate him. The council's ambiguous deliberations, published in the press, brought forth this reply by Daniel Dana, Joseph's son and minister of the Presbyterian Church at Newburyport. Signing himself "Marcus," Daniel Dana vindicates his father's character and defends his conduct. Refuting the worst conclusions of the council, he claims that the wife is emotionally unstable, has been fixated on their daughter and the question of incest and has exaggerated whatever "physical abuse" he may have committed against her under extreme provocation. This piece first appeared in the Newbury Herald; shortly after this printing in the Salem Gazette it was separately published in pamphlet form under the title, A Reply to the Vindication of the Result of the Late Council, Newburyport, Newburyport, Jan, 1806 (Shaw & Shoemaker, American Imprints 10787). It was answered in turn by Leonard Woods in A Testimony Against the Publications of Marcus, an A Vindication of the Character of Mrs. Elizabeth Dana, both Newburyport, 1806. (Shaw & Shoemaker 11897 & 11770). This broadside supplement appears to be unrecorded; it is not held by the American Antiquarian Society or listed on OCLC.

        La Navigation, Poëme.

      Paris: Chez Giguet et Michaud, 1805. Two volumes, octavo, engraved frontispiece and half-title in each volume; nineteenth-century mottled calf, gilt. First edition of Esmenard's epic poem on voyages of discovery generally, and La Pérouse specifically. The work includes a plate imagining the then hypothetical wreck of La Pérouse, 'Naufrage des Canots de la Pérouse au Port des Français'.A hardy and experienced mariner himself, Esmenard composed the poem while under sail with Villaret-Joyeuse to Martinique. The epic poem demonstrates his broad knowledge of the voyages of the eighteenth century, with references to Bougainville, Malaspina, Byron, Wallis and Surville, as well as sections on the 'immortelle' Anson and 'sage et malheureux' Cook.The work is an homage to the great French sailor La Pérouse, 'maître du monde', and is one of the most beautiful examples of the enduring interest in his fate, given that by 1805 he had been missing for over a decade. On the scaffold Louis XVI is said to have repeated his continual question: "Is there any news of La Pérouse?"Esmenard writes that the distraught French people still wait and hope for his return, but probably in vain. In fact, both text and image assume that La Pérouse has wrecked on some fatal island: 'Dans ce gouffre écumant que la mort environne, / De leur fatal naufrage embrassent les débris, / Voyez-vous ces soldats, entendez-vous leurs cris, / Mêlés au bruit lointain des rochers et de l'onde?'Very rare: not known to Ferguson but appearing in the Addenda volume noting Bibliothèque Nationale and National Library of Australia copies only. Some occasional light foxing, hinges cracked but joints still strong.

        Mémoires de chimie.

      (Paris), (vers 1805). ____ Première édition. Ouvrage rare qui n'a jamais été mis dans le commerce. "En 1792, M. Lavoisier avait conçu le projet de faire un recueil de tous ses Mémoires lus à l'Académie depuis vingt ans. C'était en quelque manière faire l'histoire de la chimie moderne. Pour rendre cette histoire plus intéressante et plus complète, il s'était proposé d'y intercaler les mémoires des personnes qui, ayant adopté son système, avaient fait des expériences à son appui. Ce recueil devait former environ huit volumes. L'Europe sait pourquoi ils n'ont pas pu être achevés. On a retrouvé presque tout le premier, le second en entier, quelques feuilles du quatrième ... Ces fragments n'auraient point paru s'ils ne contenaient un Mémoire de M. Lavoisier qui réclame, d'après les faits qu'il y expose, la nouvelle théorie chimique comme lui appartenant. C'est donc un devoir envers lui que de fixer l'opinion des Savants sur cette vérité." (Préface de Madame Lavoisier). Ces volume contiennent 39 mémoires dont 29 de Lavoisier, 12 paraissant ici pour la première fois. Ils n'ont jamais été réédités. L'édition des "Oeuvres" ne reprend curieusement qu'une partie de ces "Mémoires". A l'exception de quelques exemplaires donné à des Institutions ou à des savants, tous les exemplaires ont été vendus brochés, en 1836, à la mort de Mme Lavoisier. Celui-ci est en reliure d'époque. Les pages de titres n'ont jamais été imprimées, seuls les faux-titres. Dans cet exemplaire, on a relié le faux-titre du tome 2 en tête du tome 1 et il manque le feuillet suivant, une introduction expliquant la raison de la publication de l'ouvrage. Duveen, Klickstein 199 et suiv. Reliure légèrement usée, mais bon exemplaire dans l'ensemble. *-------* First edition. Privately printed by Mme Lavoisier and distributed to eminent scientists.'Lavoisier's preparation of a complete eight-volume edition of his memoirs was halted by his imprisonment and execution during the Reign of Terror; he left behind him only the greater part of Vol.I, all of Vol.II and a small part of Vol.IV. His widow later had these fragments privately printed in two volumes and distributed them to eminent scientists and institutions to ensure that Lavoisier would receive the credit he deserved for his chemical work ... The fifth memoir in Vol.II contains Lavoisier's claim to the discovery of oxidation; it was this claim that prompted Mme. Lavoisier to publish the Mémoires.' Norman 1297. In-8. [194 x 116 mm] Collation : (2), 416 pp., (2), 413 pp., 64 pp. Basane marbrée, roulette d'encadrement sur les plats, dos orné. (Reliure de l'époque.).
