        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 - 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 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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).

This copy is from the Lamton Castle collection (with a small round bookplate of the front pastedown) and is signed and dated by. Henrietta Cholmondeley, the future wife of John Lambton (1792 - 1840). Lambton was a politician and the first earl of Durham, and was viewed as a bit of a radical for his views on Parliamentary reform. 1805

Clinton served three terms as Mayor (this was published during his first term, 1803-1807), as well as serving as the sixth Governor of the state (where he was largely responsible for the construction of the Erie Canal), as U.S. Senator, and as a candidate for President in the closely contested election of 1812, when he nearly defeated James Madison. Samuel Jones was the first Comptroller of New York and served between 1797 -1809. Presumably as nice an association copy as one could hope for. .

        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.).

        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. for high crimes & misdemeanors, supposed to have been by him committed; with the necessary documents and official papers, from his impeachment to final acquittal.

      Printed for Samuel Butler and George Keatinge,, Baltimore: 1805 - 8vo, original boards, paper spine label, [6], 12, [3]-268 (i.e. 316), 68 pp. Normal rubbing and wear to the original boards, joints cracked, spine ends worn, some light foxing and mild darkening within, some creasing to endpapers, signature on endpaper; still a nice copy in the original boards, page edges untrimmed. Samuel Chase (1741-1811) was one of the most influential Supreme Court Justices during its early years. He had a somewhat volatile personality, and his strong Federalist leanings made him a somewhat controversial figure on the court. His aggressive approach to the bench, and support for John Adams in the 1800 election resulted in efforts to impeach him from the Republicans. He was eventually acquitted of the charges of misconduct. This is one of two different versions of this landmark trial, both published in 1805. This one "taken in short hand, by Charles Evans, and the arguments of counsel revised by them from his manuscript." Chase was a Signer, a Revolutionary soldier, and has been called "The most brilliant of the Supreme Court justices to sit before John Marshall." Chase was ultimately acquitted on charges of misconduct in several cases of sedition. The failed impeachment, a blatantly political attack led by Jefferson and his followers, is generally regarded as one of the decisive events of the early Federal period in establishing the principle of an independent judiciary.

        History of the Rise, Progress and Termination

      1805. First Edition . WARREN, Mercy. History of the Rise, Progress and Termination of the American Revolution Interspersed with Biographical, Political and Moral Observations. Boston: Printed by Manning and Loring for E. Larkin, 1805. Three volumes. Octavo, contemporary full brown tree sheep sympathetically rebacked to match original spines and red morocco spine labels. $13,500.First edition of Mercy WarrenÂ’s pioneering three-volume history, offering a rare “insiderÂ’s view of the Revolution,” begun in the earliest days of AmericaÂ’s struggle for independence, very scarce in contemporary tree sheep boards.Mercy Warren, the premiere first-generation Revolutionary historian, possessed ""the most systematic understanding of the relationship between ideology and ethics, the best developed interpretation of how corruption operated in history, and the clearest insight into the historian's role as a social and political critic"" (William and Mary Quarterly). Hers remains the ""first important historical work by an American woman"" (Howes W122). Warren began her account at the earliest stirrings of the Revolution and ""worked steadily on the three volumes that were finally published—when Warren was 77Â… Her work not only provided an insider's view of the Revolution, but also set an important precedent for women authors"" (Weatherford, American Women's History, 365). Warren expertly drew upon the knowledge of key figures such as her husband, politician James Warren, and her brother James Otis, famous for his phrase, ""taxation without representation is tyranny,"" and regularly she corresponded with notables such as Samuel Adams, Abigail Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who owned a copy of her History and commented, ""I have long possessed evidence of her high station in the ranks of genius"" (The Library of Thomas Jefferson 508). Howes W122. Sabin 101484. Shaw & Shoemaker 9687. Sowerby 4439. Volume I with penciled owner inscription to title page, early inked owner signature above first text page.Interiors generally fresh with light scattered foxing, minor occasional marginal dampstatining, occasional expert paper repairs.

        Thomas Paine to the Citizens of Pennsylvania

      1805. First Edition . PAINE, Thomas. Thomas Paine to the Citizens of Pennsylvania, on the Proposal for Calling a Convention. Philadelphia: Wm. Duane, 1805. Octavo, period-style full speckled sheep gilt, red morocco spine label, uncut; pp. 30. $12,500.First edition of this open letter from Paine to Pennsylvanians regarding the proposed convention to form a new state constitution. Paine's final published work, this pamphlet is quite scarce.The first Pennsylvania state constitution, of 1776, was among the most democratic of state constitutions. It was replaced in 1790 by a conservative constitution drawn up by the ascendant Federalists. The 1805 movement was a Jeffersonian reaction. In this pamphlet, Paine makes an argument attempting to prove the unconstitutionality of the power assumed by the New York legislature to grant charters. Paine was by this time a resident of New Rochelle, New York, where he lived for the remainder of his life. Paine writes: ""As I resided in the capital of your state (Philadelphia) in the 'time that tried men's souls,' and all my political writings, during the revolutionary war, were written in that city, it seems natural for me to look back on the place of my political and literary birth, and feel an interest for its happiness.""""During August, still in New Rochelle, Paine also wrote a pamphlet—the last he ever published—in support of the call for constitutional reform in Pennsylvania. He reminded Pennsylvania readers that the spirit of the Revolution was endangered in their state. Whereas their constitution of 1776 was second to none, the revised constitution of 1790 had created a form of government whose working principles were more English and monarchic than AmericanÂ… He roasted the old monarchic practice voting by orders or estates and argued instead for universal suffrage—among men, at least"" (Keane, Tom Paine, 511-12). Rare, with only six copies reported in OCLC. Shaw & Shoemaker 9089. Sabin 58240. Minor toning and foxing. A very good uncut copy of this Paine rarity.

Octavo. 240, lvi (index) pp., additionally, after the 120 pages, each page is interleaved with a blank leaf for notes.

Clinton served three terms as Mayor (this was published during his first term, 1803-1807), as well as serving as the sixth Governor of the state (where he was largely responsible for the construction of the Erie Canal), as U.S. Senator, and as a candidate for President in the closely contested election of 1812, when he nearly defeated James Madison. Samuel Jones was the first Comptroller of New York and served between 1797 -1809. Presumably as nice an association copy as one could hope for. .

[?????-????????? ? ????? ?????? ??????? ????????: ?? ???????? ?? ????????????? ? ???? ???? ?????????? ??? ????????? ?????????, ????????? ? ??????? ????? ???????].

      F. Dienemann u Comp. Skt. Petersburg; Verlage des Geographifchen Instituts Weimar ; 1807 1805 - Two vols, small 8vo (20.4 x 12.6 cm). Frontispiece, title, XL, 3 - 390 pp., with one folding table; Title, XVIII, 442, 16 pp., with 5 folding plans of St. Petersburg, including 1 in contemporary hand colour, and 2 folding tables; quire L in vol I misnumbered, without half title in vol I, small marginal waterstains. Contemporary brown boards, green paper labels to spines with gilt lettering, paper shelf marks; slightly rubbed. Uncommon work on Saint Petersburg published on the occasion of the first jubilee of the Imperial capital. The work is structured chronologically and describes history of the city from the reign of its founder Peter the Great until the epoch of Alexander I. The city's impressive growth within one century is clearly visible on multiple large maps accompanying the text and dating from 1716 up until 1805. The book is dedicated to the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna, who, like the author himself, had German routes. Reimers saw the rapid development of the city as a result of the iron will of the Russian rulers, who wished to turn their residence into a paradise on Earth by any means. The author illustrates it with many contemporary testimonies and anecdotes. For example he tells about Paul I's urgent order to turn the Nevsky Prospect into a green alley in the middle of severe winter in 1799 – 1800. To deliver a result "here and now", pits for trees were heated with boiling water and fire, and seedlings were brought from the Imperial gardens and purchased at very high prices from private individuals. Not surprisingly, in the next several months the trees died and the process had to be repeated from the scratch. Reimers' account serves also as a valuable guide to the city at the height of its splendour, containing descriptions of the landmarks of the Imperial capital and the city's glorious art collections, as well as of the public institutions, education and medical facilities, and businesses. The Reimers' work is rare when complete with all the plans. A copy in the collection of the Russian National Library lacks two plans. Our copy has additionally a very rare index to plans of Saint Petersburg, 1807 bound in. We could locate only one copy of this title in WorldCat - in the collection of the Erfurt University library. ______________________________ ?????? ??????? ????????? ???????? ??????? ??? ???????? ?????????????? ? ??????? ???????? ?????? ?????????? ??????? ? ?????????????? ?? ?????????????? ?????????? ???????????-?????? ????? ????????? ????????????? ? ????? ????????? ?? ?????????? ???????????? — ?? ?????????? ?????? —- ????? ???????? ?? ????? ????????? ??????????

        Fifth Annual Message to Congress (National Intelligencer Extra)

      1805. First Edition . JEFFERSON, Thomas. [Fifth Annual Message to Congress.] This Day, at 12 O’Clock, the President of the United States Communicated, by Mr. Coles, his Secretary, the Following Message to Both Houses of Congress. IN: National Intelligencer Extraordinary. [Washington: Samuel Harrison Smith], December 3, 1805. Original folio sheet of laid paper printed on recto only, measuring 13 by 21-1/2 inches, uncut. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4800.First public broadside printing of Jefferson’s fifth State of the Union address, in which he addresses threats of coastal and border violation by Spain, Britain and France, with his promises to reorganize the militia and augment the navy. Relations with neighboring Native American tribes are also discussed, including several significant recent purchases, and he alludes to the explorations of the Lewis and Clark expedition.“The National Intelligencer was the newspaper of record in the United States, particularly in regard to the proceedings of the federal government. Administration policies were announced and defended in its columns, yet it maintained a remarkably moderate and judicious tone” (Malone, 681). On December 3, 1805, the Intelligencer published this broadside text of Jefferson’s fifth annual Message to Congress, on the very day it was delivered. In his speech, the President characterized the times as “a moment when the nations of Europe are in commotion and arming against each other, and when those with whom we have principal intercourse are engaged in the general contest, and when the countenance of some of them toward our peaceable country threatens that even that may not be affected by what is passing on the general theater.” What follows is an angered recitation of numerous violations of American sovereignty by foreign powers, particularly a dispute with Spain concerning the exact boundaries of Louisiana and the serious threat to ports and coastal towns posed by the Spanish and pirates. He promises to arm the cities and patrol the waters with more ships. The President then reassures the public that the militia system continues to work and that he intends to augment the navy. “Jefferson deliberately adopted a strong tone in this public document. ‘The message is more energetic and warlike than any he ever sent to Congress,’ said Senator William Plumer. Hostile critics accused him of blustering in order to gratify the public, but, so far as his references to Spanish relations were concerned, he said privately that his major purpose was to impress the French. And, having concluded, after reading an early draft, that he had been too soft on the British, he toughened the passages relating to them in order to effect a better balance” (Malone, 69). In this message Jefferson also addresses the United States’ relations with neighboring Native American tribes, including three recent purchases of large tracts of land. “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… 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.” In a mention of the Missouri River and “other parts beyond the Mississippi,” he states: “A state of our progress in exploring the principal rivers of that country, and of the information respecting them hitherto obtained, will be communicated so soon as we shall receive some further relations which we have reason shortly to expect.” This is clearly an allusion to the progress of the Lewis and Clark expedition, initiated by Jefferson, which set out along the Mississippi, camped at the mouth of the Missouri during the winter of 1803-04, then followed the Missouri west and north searching for an all-water route across the continent. Jefferson would have had no way of knowing this at the time, of course, but less than a month before he delivered this message to Congress the Lewis and Clark expedition had reached the Pacific Coast. Around the time of this message, in early December, the expedition discovered the place where they would establish their winter quarters, Fort Clatsop. Typeset in three columns. Not in Shaw & Shoemaker (listing only two other broadside printings, both published a week later). Horizontal fold worn, with minor loss of a few words as follows: first column should read, “As we advance our knowledge of this disease, as facts [develop] the source from which the individuals [receive it, the State] authorities charged with the care of the public health;” second column should read, “In aid of these it is desirable we should have a [competent] number of gun-boats, [and the number, to be competent, must] be considerable;” third column should read, “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 interesting to the state of Georgia.” A few stray spots of foxing along right-hand margin. An extremely good copy. Very scarce.

        Nouvelles méthodes pour la détermination des orbites des comètes.

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1805. First edition, first issue of the invention of the method of least squares, "the automobile of modern statistical analysis" and the origin of "the most famous priority dispute in the history of statistics" (Stigler). "The great advances in mathematical astronomy made during the early years of the nineteenth century were due in no small part to the development of the method of least squares. The same method is the foundation for the calculus of errors of observation now occupying a place of great importance in the scientific study of social, economic, biological, and psychological problems. Gauss says in his work on the Theory of Motions of the Heavenly Bodies (1809) that he had made use of this principle since 1795 but that it was first published by Legendre. The first statement of the method appeared as an appendix entitled "Sur la méthode des moindres quarrés" in Legendre's Nouvelles méthodes pour la détermination des orbites des comètes, Paris 1805" (Wolberg, 'The Method of Least Squares,' in Designing Quantitative Experiments, 2010).  "[By] 1800 the principle of combining observational equations had evolved, through work of [Tobias] Mayer and [Pierre-Simon] Laplace, to produce a convenient ad hoc procedure for quite general situations. We have also seen how the idea of starting with a mathematical criterion had led, in work of [Roger] Boscovich and Laplace, to an elegant solution suitable for simple linear relationships involving only two unknowns. The first of these approaches developed through problems in astronomy; the second was (at least in these early years) exclusively employed in connection with attempts to determine the figure of the earth. These two lines came together in the work of a man who, like Laplace, was an excellent mathematician working on problems in both arenas
