        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.

        The Charter of the City of New-York, Together with the Acts of the Legislature in relation thereto, or which have vested Additional Powers in the Mayor, Alderman, and Commonalty of the said City

      New-York: Published Pursuant to an Order of Common Council made February 18, 1805. Printed by James Cheethan. 1805. First. First edition. Octavo. 240, lvi (index) pp., additionally, after the 120 pages, each page is interleaved with a blank leaf for notes. Contemporary half calf and papercovered boards gilt, with red morocco spine label gilt stamped "Mayor's Office" on the front board. Front joint split, paper over boards quite worn, still a sound and pleasing very good copy.

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

        Thomas Paine: Who Suggested that America should have a Monarch?

      New Rochelle, N.Y. 1805 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Elisha Babcock. New Rochelle, N.Y., July 2, 1805. 1 p., 8 x 10 in., with address leaf. Paine asks a newspaper publisher for the source of a report, that Great Britain had circulated a proposal "among the most influential federalists" recommending that the Duke of Clarence be made the King of America. This letter, attacking the Federalists generally and American monarchists specifically, is completely in line with a campaign he waged in his waning years against any in the United States who might yearn for a constriction of democracy and a resumption of monarchic rule in America. Thomas Paine returned to the United States in 1802, after living most of the previous fifteen years abroad. Shortly after his arrival in the United States he was hosted by Jefferson at the White House, and quickly became the target of Federalist attacks. Paine answered those attacks in published articles and in private letters - the present letter is one of those responses. He also asks why his letter (dated June 8) was not printed in the paper. TranscriptNew Rochelle July 2d '05--Citizen In your paper of June 27, in a piece containing remarks on a paragraph in the Norwich Centinel the writer of the remarks speaking of what several of the feds [i.e. Federalists] had said, adds the dissemination of the sentiments was only a preliminary measure to the acceptance of the proposal made by Great Britain and circulated secretly among the most influential federalists, Hamilton for one, viz, "That Great Britain to should cede Canada to the United States on condition that the Duke of Clarence should be placed on the American throne and recognized as the monarch of America." -- This might have been easily answered by saying We have blackguards enon of our own. I will, however, be obliged to you if you can give me any information respecting this proposal so as it may be traced to some source. You will recollect that Oliver Ellsworth was after his mission expired in France, went over to England, and I informed you near two years ago that he had declared himself a monarchist in a company of 10 or 12 persons and I gave you the name of the gentleman who told me of it and who was one of the company, but you made no use of the information. My last letter (the 8th) is the most important of any I have published. I have been disappointed in not seeing it in your paper. I have reason to believe the matters therein contained stated will be taken up at the next meeting of Congress, and the inquiry at that time, will not be sufficiently understood by those who had not an opportunity of seeing that letter. I know the feds want to keep that letter out of sight. Yours in friendship Thomas PaineHistorical BackgroundThe early 19th century saw the strengthening of Federalist sentiment in New England, culminating in the "Hartford Convention" from December 1814 to January 1815. In this letter, Paine writes Elisha Babcock, publisher of the American Mercury newspaper in Hartford, Connecticut. Paine rails against the "feds" and their supporters, specifically criticizing a notion that had been circulating in Connecticut newspapers that "Great Britain should cede Canada to the United States on condition that the Duke of Clarence should be placed on the American throne and recognized as the monarch of America."Paine asks Babcock for assistance in tracking down the source of this proposal. "I will.be obliged to you if you can give me any information respecting this proposal as it may be traced to some source. You will recollect that Oliver Ellsworth after his mission expired in France, went over to England, and I informed you nearly two years ago that he had declared himself a monarchist in a company of 10 or 12 persons and I gave you the name of the gentleman who told me of it and who was one of the company but you made no use of the information." Ellsworth was a former U.S. Senator from Connecticut - among other political p. (See website for full description)

        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

      Garnery rue de Seine; Laporte quai des Lunettes arcade Lamoignon, Paris 1805 - Deuxième Édition. 4 Bde. Paris, Garnery, rue de Seine; Laporte, quai des Lunettes, arcade Lamoignon, 1805-1807. 8vo. (1:) XIX, 504; (2:) VIII, 541; (3:) 500; (4:) 495 S. Originale einheitliche Interimsbroschuren. (unbeschnittener Originalzustand, Papier sehr frisch). Malevilles (1741-1824) berühmte vierbändige "Analyse raisonnée" über die Diskussion zum Code Civil im Staatsrat war ein umfassender, hochinteressanter Kommentar über das Zustandekommen, die Grundlagen und die Ausgestaltung jedes Artikels. Malleville behandelt darin in durchaus unparteiischer Weise die am umstrittensten und am kontroversesten diskutierten Fragen im Entstehungsprozeß des Code Civil. In der Befolgung der Legalordnung des Code civil zeigt Maleville an den einzelnen Gesetzen auf, warum die eine oder andere Meinung bei der Ausgestaltung des Gesetzes den Vorzug erhalten hat. Er fügt an, warum die eine oder andere Lücke geblieben ist und vor allem, auf welche Weise die geltende Gesetzesregelung vom Ius Romanum auf der einen Seite und dem Gewohnheitsrecht (droit coutumier) auf der anderen Seite abgewichen ist. - Im Jahre 1800, an VIII, am 24. Thermidor des französischen Revolutionskalenders, wurde Maleville von Napoléon beauftragt, zusammen mit TRONCHET, PORTALIS und BIGOT-PRÉAMENEU einen Entwurf eines Code Civil auszuarbeiten. Von Napoléon war Maleville als Sekretär und Redakteur innerhalb der Kommisison beauftragt. Seine drei Kollegen beteiligten ihn aber gleichberechtigt an allen Kommsisionssitzungen. Innerhalb der Kommission suchte er den Standpunkt des Ius Romanum bei der Ausgestaltung des Entwurfes einzubringen. Bisweilen schoß Maleville auch über dass Ziel hinaus, beispielsweise als er entgegen den Errungenschaften der französischen Revolution, die auch die gesetzlichze Gleichberechtigung der Frau forderte, die Verwirklichung des patriachalischen, römischen Familienmodells forderte. Die Paterfamilias war für ihn beispielgebend und sollte nach seinen Vorstellungen auch Inhalt des Code civil werden. In diesem Sinne lehnte Maleville auch die Ehescheidung ab, einer der großen Errungenschaften der französischen Revolution. Stark romanistisch war er auch im Erbrecht, vor allem bei der im Ius Romanum ausgeprägten grenzelosen Testierfreiheit. - Maleville war bis zum Jahre 1770 Advokat am Parlament zu Bordeaux, zog sich dann aber nach Domme im Pérogard zurück. Die französische Revolution drängte ihn wieder ins öffentliche Leben zurück. Dort übernahm er Aufgaben in der Justiz und in der französischen Gesetzgebung. Maleville war ein Parteigänger der Revolution und wurde im Jahre 1790 zunächst Mitglied, später Direktor des Direktoriums im Département Dordogne. Ein Jahr später wurde er als Richter an das Kassationsgericht zu Paris (cour de cassation), dem obersten französischen Gericht, berufen. Dort wirkte er als Richter bis 1794. Von 1795 bis 1799 wurde Maleville in den Ältestenrat berufen. Im Jahre 1800 schloß er sich Napoléon Bonaparte an, der ihn erneut zum Richter am Kassationsgericht ernannte, wo er bald Präsident der zivilrechtlichen Abteilung wurde. Im Jahre 1806 wurde er zum Senator ernannt und in den Grafenstand erhoben, wandte sich später jedoch von Napoléon ab. Er stimmte für die Entlassung Napoléons und die Rückkher der Bourbonen zu. Nachdem er sich mit der Restauration verbündet hatte, wurde er 1814 zum Pair und 1817 zum Marquis ernannt. (unbeschnittener Originalzustand, Papier sehr frisch).
