        ACTS PASSED AT THE FIRST SESSION OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF THE TERRITORY OF ORLEANS, BEGUN AND HELD AT THE PRINCIPAL, IN THE CITY OF NEW-ORLEANS...ONE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND FOUR.... [and:] ACTS PASSED AT THE SECOND SESSION OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF THE TERRITORY OF ORLEANS, BEGUN AND HELD AT THE PRINCIPAL, IN THE CITY OF NEW-ORLEANS...ONE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND FIVE

      New Orleans, 1805. 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. One small ink stamp, small ink notation, and one embossed blindstamp on each titlepage, short horizontal tear to titlepage of the second volume, small marginal tape repair to F4 in the first volume, light staining to some leaves, occasional tanning, minor contemporary ink marginalia, bleedthrough from ink notations on verso of last leaf of second volume. Withal, a very good set. A rare and important set of the the first American laws printed west of the Mississippi. They encompass the first two session laws for the Louisiana territory under American rule, with the text printed in English and French on facing pages. In March, 1804, the Louisiana Purchase was divided into the Territories of Orleans (south of the present border of Arkansas and Missouri) and Louisiana (everything to the north and west, governed until 1807 by Indiana Territory). The influence of French and Spanish laws in North America is evident in these early territorial laws, as it took Congress more than two decades to determine their intent with regard to existing Spanish and French law. These imprints are the same as the second and third works bound with the COMPILATION of New Orleans laws in item 1587 in the Streeter sale. "At the first session of the Legislative Council 51 Acts and one joint resolution were approved, the latest on May 1, 1805; and at the second session 15 acts were approved, the latest dated July 3, 1805" - Streeter. Early Louisiana laws are especially rare; this is only the second time we've ever seen these imprints.

        Des passions considérées comme causes, symptômes et moyens curatifs de l’aliénation mentale

      - 86 pages Paris, de l'imprimerie de Didot, An XIV (1805), in-4, 86 pages, demi-veau blond à coins moderne, dos lisse et fleuronné, pièce de titre brune, tranches jonquille, Édition originale de la thèse inaugurale d'Esquirol (1772-1840), dédiée à Pinel, dont il fut l’élève favori. Ouvrage capital, d'une très grande rareté, dans lequel est mise en avant la notion fondamentale de l'affectivité qui sera maintes fois reprises par la suite. "N'oublions pas – conclut Esquirol – que les chagrins, les peines, la trop vive susceptibilité sont les causes les plus fréquentes de l'égarement de la raison (.) Il serait à désirer de pouvoir placer tous les aliénés dans des positions plus agréables et plus riantes que celles où ils étaient avant d'être malades". Esquirol perpétua le travail débuté par son maitre en reprenant, et enrectifiant, sa nosographie de la folie à partir d’observations nouvelles et de cas cliniques personnellement étudiés. Il propose, toujours à la suite de Pinel, une réforme complète des hôpitaux psychiatriques. Il est considéré comme l’un des fondateurs de l'école française de psychiatrie et il fut le premier conférencier en psychiatrie. Exemplaire de belle provenance : Étiquette ex-libris Koreff ; probablement David-Ferdinand Koreff (1783-1851), médecin et écrivain originaire de Silésie ; praticien de renom, il avait recours au très contesté magnétisme animal. Il eut, entre autres patients, lady Susan Lincoln, diagnostiquée hystérique, à qui il prescrivit des cures de "somnambulisme magnétique".

        Lother und Maller eine Rittergeschichte Aus einer ungedruckten Handschrift bearbeitet und herausgegeben von FRIEDRICH SCHLEGEL.

      bei Friedrich Wilmans, Frankfurt am Main 1805 - 274 S. Holzdeckelband d.Zt. mit marmoriertem Papierbezug. Stark berieben, Ecken bestoßen. Erste Ausgabe der Bearbeitung (Goedeke VI,28,3 [Dorothea Schlegel]; Goedeke I,357,19.5). – Etwas gebräunt, etwas (finger-) fleckig. Exlibris GOTTHILF WEISSTEIN a.d. Innendeckel (Kat.Weisstein 5201), darunter handschriftl. Eintrag „WOLFGANG FROMMEL MCMXXXIV Berlin“ (s.u.). Obwohl ihr Name nirgends im Buch erscheint und die Rittergeschichte sogar in FRIEDRICH SCHLEGELs Werkausgabe (1823, Bd.7) aufgenommen wurde, ist die Ausgabe ganz ein Werk DOROTHEAs, der Tochter MOSES MENDELSSOHNs. Nach der „skandalösen“ Zeit in Jena (1799), deren literarischer Ausfluss FRIEDRICH SCHLEGELs Lucinde war, ging das Paar 1802 nach Paris, wo DOROTHEA zum Protestantismus konvertierte und FRIEDRICH heiratete, bevor beide 1805 in Köln zum Katholizismus konvertierten. Hier entstand ihre Bearbeitung der Geschichte, die die Herzogin MARGARETHA VON LOTHRINGEN 1405 aus dem Lateinischen ins Französische und 1437 von deren Tochter ELISABETH VON NASSAU zuerst ins Deutsche übersetzt worden war. „Den Herausgeber bestimmte vorzüglich ‚das darin aufgestellte Bild der ritterlichen Freundschaft, [den Roman] der Vergessenheit zu entreissen (.)‘. Und in der That ist dieses Bild so gross und zugleich so anziehend und rührend, dass man mit innigem Wohlgefallen dabey verweilt. Maller erscheint bey aller ritterlichen Tüchtigkeit und biederherzigen Gesinnung doch niemals ganz so heldenmässig und liebenswürdig als Lother, und eben durch dieses Nachstehen zeigt sich seine unwandelbare Anhänglichkeit und Treue in einem um so schöneren Lichte: (.) es zeigt sich uns (.) das anmuthigere seltenere Schauspiel, wie eine edle Seele sich dem Leben einer höheren Natur ganz im unbewussten Triebe weihet, und ihr höchstes Glück darin findet, den grösseren Freund allen Hindernissen und Widerwärtigkeiten zum Trotz, mit höchster Anstrengung aller Kräfte und Aufbietung aller Mittel, zu der Höhe zu verhelfen, wo seine Grösse in all ihrer Herrlichkeit erscheinen könne.“ (JALZ 1806, Bd.3, Sp.262). Es wird diese Konstellation gewesen sein, die dem Buch Aufnahme in die Bibliothek des STEFAN GEORGE-Jüngers WOLFGANG FROMMEL verschafft hat. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A contemporary, and likely official, manuscript duplicate of Nelson's final words from his private diary before he was killed at the Battle of Trafalgar: his celebrated "last codicil," being his effort to have the government support his mistress, Emma Hamilton, and their child, Horatia

      n.p., October 21,1805. 9.75" x 15.75". "Manuscript Document, 1 page, 9.75"" x 15.75"", ""Victory,"" October 21, 1805 [but accomplished at a later time], being a contemporary true copy, in a clerical hand, of Nelson's last written words, entered in his diary as the Battle of Trafalgar began, copied from Nelson's original manuscript. Paper watermarked ""1801"" and docketed on verso, ""Last Codicil of Lord Nelson 21 Oct. 1805"" Expected folds, minor chip at lower right margin, small slip at bottom margin neatly cut and then re-attached with archival tape on verso, else fine condition overall.An amazing contemporary copy of Nelson's effort to secure a pension for his mistress, Emma Hamilton, by crediting her with two major intelligence coups that contributed to the success of British arms over Napoleon. Dramatically headlined ""Victory ?" October the 21st 1805 then in Sight of the Combined fleets of France and Spain distant about ten Miles,"" Nelson writes, in full: ""Whereas The eminent services of Emma Hamilton Widow of the R[igh]t Hon[ora]ble Sir William Hamilton have been of the very greatest service to our King and Country, and to my knowledge without ever receiving any reward rom either our King our Country=. First that she obtained the King of Spains letter in 1796 to his brother the King of Naples acquainting her of his intention to declare War against England, from which letter the Ministry sent out orders to Sir John Jarvis to strike a stroke if opportunity offer'd against either the Arsenals of Spain or her Fleets, that neither of them was done, is not the fault of Lady Hamilton, the opportunity might have been offered.= Secondly the British Fleet under my Command would never have returned the second time to Egypt had not Lady Hamilton's influence with the Queen of Naples caused letters to be wrote to the Governor so Syracuse that he was to encourage the Fleet being supplied with every thing, should they put into that Post in Sicily.?" We put into Syracuse ,and received every supply, went to Egypt and dstroy'd the French Fleet; could I have rewarded those services, I would not now call upon my Country, but as that has not been in my power, I leave Emma Lady Hamilton therefore a Legacy to my King and Country, that they will give her an ample provision to maintain her rank in life. I also leave to the beneficence of my Country my adopted Daughter Horatia Nelson Thompson, and I desire she will use in future the name of Nelson only. ?" These are the only favours I ask of my King and Country at this moment when I am going to fight their battles. ?" My God bless my King and Country and all those who I loved dear. ?" My Relations it is needless to mention they will of course be amply provided for."" Below the clerk has added Nelson's signature: ""Nelson & Bronté"" as well as the witnesses to the codicil, Henry Blackwood (1770-1832) and Thomas Masterson Hardy (1769-1839). According to the Victory's chaplain Alexander John Scott, in an affidavit sworn in June 1806, the wounded Nelson confided to him: ""'I am dying Doctor remember me to Lady [Ham[ilton I have made a will and left her & Horatia a legacy [to my] Country."" Following Nelson's demise, Scott, together Captain Hardy, ""found in the escritoire [small writing desk] of the said Deceased a Book"" containing his final codicil. (Hudson, ed., Nelson's Last Diary, 1918, 28). Captain Hardy was entrusted with conveying the diary back to England where, according to one biographer, he was advised by government lawyers that it not be published as it freely discussed the actions of the Queen of Naples. Hardy left the paper with Nelson's brother, William in December 1805, retrieving it two months later in order to read to Lord Grenville, likely in an effort to obtain Parliamentary support for Nelson's final requests. Emma Hamilton's friends accused Nelson's brother William of withholding the document from her until he had secured generous provisions for himself and his family from Parliament. When he finally presented it to Lady Hamilton, William was said to have thrown it across her during an interview saying, ""Do what you like with this..."" (Hudson, ed., Nelson's Last Diary, 1918, 38-39).Despite the efforts of Captain Hardy and other friends, Parliament did not bestow any honors or a pension upon Lady Hamilton or Horatia?"despite Nelson's final and most earnest request. Lady Hamilton lived off the small inheritance that Nelson had bestowed upon her in a previous codicil, but soon fell into heavy debt?"in part due to her efforts to maintain Nelson's estate, Merton Place, as a monument to the fallen hero. Destitute, she spent a year in debtor's prison before fleeing to Calais in an attempt to elude her creditors, where she died in 1815.Rare. Material related to the H.M.S. Victory and Nelson's death at Trafalgar is extremely desirable. The original paper wrapper in which Capt. Hardy housed Nelson's final diary fetched nearly $25,000 at auction (Sotheby's, London, October 21, 2002, lot 77). The exact circumstances surrounding the production of the present copy are unknown, but it is quite likely that it was produced for the use of Emma Hamilton. "

        A practical treatise on brewing, distilling, and rectification, with the genuine process of making brandy, rum, and Hollands gin, the London practice of brewing porter, ale, and table beer, the method of brewing country ales, &c.

      London: Robert Scholey 4to (27.5 cm, 10.9"). xxxii (half-title lacking), 307, [1], 248, 135, [1], 183, [1] pp.; 8 plts. (1 fold.), 5 fold. tables.. 1805 Without a doubt, this is one of the most prominent English works on brewing and vinting of its time, present here in its first editon. Shannon, a physician whose first name is given as Robert by some sources and Richard by others, promotes a scientific approach to utilizing chemistry and methodical processes rather than guesswork or tradition; each section of his exhaustive treatment of the subject provides not only definitions, recipes, and instructions for all sorts of eventualities, but also comprehensive lists of varieties of beer, wine, and other spirits from different regions — so that Kingston ale, Brunswick Mum, spruce-beer, red ratafia, lemon wine, and vino tinto, as well as various cordials, essential oils, bitters, vinegars, and distilled waters, are present here alongside porter, Holland gin, cider, mead, sherry, etc. The author also gives histories of some of the primary types of spirits and liquors, along with details of viniculture, transportation of materials and products, etc. Gabler (Words into Wine) notes that while most writers consider Alexander Henderson's the first detailed account in English of modern wines, Shannon's work => predates Henderson's by 19 years. The volume opens with a list of the subscribers; each book has a separate title-page; and the text is enhanced with => eight engraved plates depicting equipment and five folding charts of various measurements and benchmarks. There are several pencilled annotations present in the margins, indicating practical and analytical-minded engagement with the text. Provenance: Front free endpaper with inked ownership inscription of the Hon. Henry Frederick Francis Adair Barrington, a South African lawyer, politician, and farmer; the inscription is dated 1877, five years before his death. 19th-century half navy straight-grain morocco with marbled paper?-covered sides, edges speckled brown, and spine with gilt-stamped title and gilt-ruled raised bands; rubbed at joints, sides, and board edges with front turn-in slightly pulled at head. Half-title lacking, leaf z1 in the appendix apparently a cancel, title-page with small edge nick, inked inscription and pencilled annotations as above with some final words of notes partially shaved. Some leaves, plates, and sections variously with creasing, foxing, corners bumped, or light to moderate waterstaining; perhaps three short tears; none of this frightful and the volume quite sound. Front pastedown with small ticket of a London bookseller. An important treatise designed to be used as a reference work and a copy of it that was used so.

        Fifth Annual Message to Congress (National Intelligencer Extra)

      1805 - 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.

        Charlotte Countess of Cholmondeley and the Hon Henry Cholmondeley

      London: Published by the engraver, No 50 Warren Street, Fitzroy Square, 1805. Mezzotint. State i/ii with scratch letters. Printed on laid paper. A stunning impression in excellent condition. Skillfully remargined outside platemark on top of sheet. Small section in-filled in lower left corner of sheet outside platemark. Lower left corner skillfully in-filled outside platemark. Paper strengthened in upper right corner of sheet. Skillfully mended tear in upper right corner of image. Tiny section of image in-filled in lower right corner of image. Trimmed within platemark on lower margin. This stunning print is a rich impression of Charles Turner's mezzotint portrait of the Countess of Cholmondeley and her son after Hoppner. John Hoppner was at the height of his powers at the time he painted Lady Cholmondeley and her son, Henry. The grand aristocratic portrait had been the domain of Sir Joshua Reynolds, carried on by Hoppner, Raeburn and later, Lawrence. Apart from dressing very young boys in dresses, what separates us from this epoch is the sense of noble vulnerability we feel in the countess, who occupies her station graciously and without apology. Georgiana Charlotte Bertie (1764-1838) married George, Earl (later Marquess) of Cholmondeley in 1791. Her calm demeanor, elegance and self-containment epitomise the aristocratic feminine ideal of the period. Henry Cholmondelely (1800-1884) was about four when the painting was done. As Lord Cholmondeley was a moderate Tory at Parliament. Charles Turner was an outstanding engraver who throughout his memorable career produced an array of wonderful images. Born in Oxfordshire, Turner moved to London in 1795, at which time he was employed by the famous engraver and publisher Boydell. Turner was a versatile engraver working in stipple and aquatint as well as mezzotint. Although Turner produced a wide array of excellent prints in subjects ranging from topography to genre, his main artistic focus was portraiture. Throughout his career he produced more than six hundred plates, of which about two-thirds were portraits. Turner was a close friend of J.M.W. Turner, and engraved many of the artist's paintings, in addition to engraving some plates for 'Liber Studiorum'. The work of Charles Turner is highly regarded by print connoisseurs as an engraver who combined technical skill with an artistic imagination to create beautiful enduring images.

        A Natural History of Uncommon Birds, and of Some Other Rare and Undescribed Animals

      London: printed by C. Rickaby "for the author" [i.e. William Gardiner and Messrs. Robinson], 1805. 4 parts bound in 2 volumes. Titles and text printed on wove or laid paper, two general titles (one in French and one in English) at the front of vol.I with engraved vignettes by Johann Sebastian Müller. 1 hand-coloured etched emblematic frontispiece, 211 etched plates (printed on wove or laid paper, 210 finely hand-coloured, 1 uncoloured etched plate of the Samoyed) all by and after Edwards, woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. [ With :] EDWARDS, George (1694-1773). Gleanings of Natural History, Exhibiting Figures of Quadrupeds, Birds, Insects, Plants, &c. London: printed by C. Rickaby for "the author" [i.e. William Gardiner and Messrs. Robinson], "1758-1760" [plates watermarked 1803-1805]. 3 parts bound in 2 volumes. Titles and text printed on wove or laid paper, one general title at the front of vol.I with engraved vignettes by Johann Sebastian Müller, letterpress English and French general title and part-titles, text in English and French in double columns, translated by J. du Plessis and Edmond Barker. 1 uncoloured engraved portrait of the author by Miller after "Dandridg," 152 etched plates (printed on wove or laid paper) all finely hand-coloured, by and after Edwards and others. Together 4 volumes. Quarto (11 1/2 x 9 1/4 inches). Uniform contemporary red straight-grained morocco, covers with border of a triple gilt fillet, spines in six compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt fillets and roll tools, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, gilt turn-ins, gilt edges. Provenance : George Savile Foljambe (1800-1869, Osberton Hall, Nottinghamshire, England, armorial bookplate). A spectacular set of "one of the most important of all bird books, both as a fine bird book and a work of ornithology" (Fine Bird Books). This issue, bound circa 1815, benefits greatly from being published at a time when two book-arts were at a high point: the art of hand-colouring was at its most sophisticated and the design and execution of bindings was equally exceptional. The colouring in this issue has the clear jewel-like quality that is a feature of the work of the best colourists of the Regency period. The same period also produced some of best binders since the 17th-century Restoration masters and the present set is a delightfully-understated example of the kind of craftsmanship of which they were capable. Edwards "has been well described as an unscientific but very accurate describer and painter of animal life, and his writings will always remain of paramount authority, from the faithfulness of his description of many new birds, subsequently incorporated in the Linnaean System. He had, says Swainson, the simplicity and piety of Izaac Walton, and may be looked upon as one of our greatest worthies. He retired about 1764 to Plaistow, died July 23, 1773" (Mullens and Swann p.194). "Through the influence of Sir Hans Sloane, [Edwards] was chosen Librarian to the Royal College of Physicians ... Almost immediately after he was appointed ... Edwards commenced the preparation of a series of coloured drawings of animals and birds, used later to illustrate [the present work]; for these he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Society and subsequently elected a Fellow" (Lisney p.127). The work was quite successful and went through a number of transformations whilst under Edwards' control, including the issuing of a French text edition. Shortly after he retired in 1769 he sold "to Mr. James Robson, Bookseller ... all the remaining copies of my Natural History ... coloured under my immediate inspection, together with all my copper-plates, letter-press, and every article in my possession relative to it ... and that my labours may be handed down to posterity with integrity, truth, and exactness, I have delivered into his hands a complete set of plates, highly coloured by myself, as a standard to those Artists who may be employed in colouring them for the future" (George Edwards, declaration quoted in Robson's Some Memoirs… of George Edwards , dated May Ist, 1769). [Bound at the end of the second work are:] [J. ROBSON] Some Memoirs of the Life and Works of George Edwards . London: for J.Robson, 1776. Lacking the 4 engraved plates. Zimmer p.529.

        Carey's American Atlas: Containing Twenty Maps and One Chart

      Philadelphia: engraved for and published by Mathew Carey, 1805. Folio. (17 1/8 x 10 7/8 inches). Letterpress title (incorporating a list of the maps) printed on wove paper, otherwise engraved throughout on laid paper. 21 engraved maps (11 double-page, 5 folding, 3 with period hand-colouring in outline). Expertly bound to style in diced russia over the original marbled paper-covered boards, flat spine in compartments divided by gilt double fillets, lettered in the second compartment An exceedingly rare issue of the first atlas of the United States published in America. This scarce atlas contains the same maps as the first edition of Carey's American Atlas of 1795. Following that first edition, the first atlas of the United States published in America, Carey printed from the same copper plates used for the 1796 first edition of his General Atlas , adding plate numbers to the upper right corners. Carey would re-issue his General Atlas in 1800 and 1804. Less well known, however, is the fact that he would also reissue the American Atlas in 1800 and 1805. Those issues of the American Atlas contained maps printed subsequent to the 1796 General Atlas , and therefore include the plate numbers from that work , thus explaining the haphazard numbering of the maps. Other than the addition of the plate numbers, the maps are from the same plates and appear to be identical to the first edition maps from the American Atlas of 1795. All the maps are printed on laid paper, and are preceded by a cancel letterpress title on wove. It seems likely, that Carey published this issue of the atlas from his remaining stock of the maps from the 1796 General Atlas with the addition of the cancel title. This would explain the presence of period hand-colouring on some of the maps in this copy, but not all. Although the title states the price of the atlas to be $5 plain and $6 colored, a contemporary ink inscription on the front pastedown suggests the atlas was sold for $4. A second edition of the American Atlas would be published in 1809, containing additional maps. The maps in the present atlas are as follows: 1. The British Posessions in North America ... by Samuel Lewis 1794. Double page, hand coloured in outline 2. The Province of Maine ... by Samuel Lewis, 1794. Hand coloured in outline 3. The State of New Hampshire ... by Samuel Lewis, 1794. Double page, hand coloured in outline 4. Vermont From actual survey ... by Amos Doolittle. Folding 5.

The later issues of the first edition of the American Atlas -- i.e. the issues of 1800 and 1805 (as here) -- are very rare. Neither are cited in Phillips or LeGear and we can find no examples of this 1805 issue in the book auction records or OCLC. Howes C135 (seemingly confusing issues of the American Atlas with Carey's American Pocket Atlas ); Streeter Sale 79 (1800 issue). This issue not in Phillips or Sabin.

'Italian tragic poet whose predominant theme was the overthrow of tyranny. In his tragedies, he hoped to provide Italy with dramas comparable to those of other European nations. Through his lyrics and dramas he helped to revive the national spirit of Italy and so earned the title of precursor of the Risorgimento, Educated at the Military Academy of Turin, Alfieri became an ensign. A distaste for military life led him to obtain leave to travel through most of Europe. In England he found the political liberty that became his ideal, and in France the literature that influenced him most profoundly. He studied Voltaire, J.J. Rousseau, and above all, Montesquieu. Alfieri settled in Turin in 1772 and resigned his commission the following year. To divert himself, he wrote 'Cleopatra', a tragedy performed with great succes in 1775. Thereupon Alfieri decided to devote himself to literature. He began a methodical study of the classics and of the Italian poets, and since he expressed himself mainly in French, the language of the ruling classes in Turin, he went to Tuscany to familiarize himself with pure Italian. By 1782 he had written 14 tragedies as well as many poems (including four odes in the series 'L'America libera', on American independence). Meanwhile, in Florence in 1777, Alfieri had met the Countess of Albany, wife of the Stuart pretender to the English throne, Charles Edward. He remained deeply attached to her for the rest of his life. Alfieri's genius was essentialy dramatic. Alfieri's tragedies present the struggle between a champion of liberty and a tyrant.'

        Histoire du canal de Languedoc rédigé sur les Pièces authentiques conservées à la Bibliothèque Impériale et aux Archives du Canal par les descendans de Pierre-Paul Riquet de Bonrepos

      - frontispice gravé en Paris, de l'imprimerie de Crapelet et chez Deterville, an XIII-1805, in-8, frontispice gravé en taille-douce, VIII-399-(1) pages, 1 carte, maroquin citron du Levant, dos lisse orné de roulettes dorées, de listels mosaïqués noirs et de petits fleurons rehaussés de vernis noir, roulette de pointillé large et bandes mosaïquées noires décorées d'un maillage doré en encadrement des plats, petits pois aux angles et chiffre M.C. au centre, tranches dorées, roulette sur les chasses, gardes de moire violette [Lefuel], Édition originale. Très bel exemplaire, dans une riche reliure de l'époque signée P. Lefuel, au chiffre, non couronné, de M[arie]-C[aroline] de Bourbon-Sicile, duchesse de Berry (1798-1870), qui réunit dans son château de Rosny, près de Mantes, une importante bibliothèque de volumes imprimés et manuscrits. (Fer non connu de Guigard et de l'OHR.) Pierre-Paul de Riquet (1604-1680) pensa toute sa vie à la mise en œuvre du canal de Languedoc, reliant l'Atlantique à la Méditerranée. Il amassa une fortune considérable qui lui permit, grâce à l'impulsion de Colbert et de Louis XIV, de lancer ce chantier cyclopéen, auquel il consacra 14 années : il mourut sans voir l'aboutissement des travaux. Ses descendants continuèrent le chantier et recouvrirent, beaucoup plus tard, les fonds investis. Ouvrage orné d'un beau frontispice gravé par R. Delvaux d'après Mirys. On y voit, sous le portrait en médaillon de Riquet de Bonrepos, une scène animée légendée "Riquet expose son projet aux Commissaires du Roi et des Etats". In fine : grande carte dépliante donnant le tracé du canal de l'étang de Thau, près d'Agde, à Toulouse et l'emplacement des 62 écluses. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Seasons -- LARGE PAPER COPY IN ORIGINAL BOARDS

      London: T. Bensley for J. Wallis, 1805 - Roy. 8vo, pp. xx + 286. The best edition of this beloved and much reprinted poem, first published in 1730, featuring a title vignette and nine engravings by Bewick after designs by John Thurston. Wallis's edition of THE SEASONS was issued in five parts in three editions: foolscap (at 7s 6d), demy octavo (at 12s 6d), and royal octavo (at 15s). This example is one of the latter, "printed in the best style by [Thomas] Bensley, on a superfine wove Paper, upon a new and very large Type," as the prospectus notes. The difference in the editions was not only the size and quality of the paper but also the size of the illustration. Whereas the two cheaper editions printed scaled-down images of the woodcuts in landscape, the royal octavo featured full-size woodcuts printed in portrait. As the author of a 2013 essay on Wallis's editions observes, "The differences in orientation and design of the illustrations profoundly affect the material appearance of the editions and the consumer’s reading experience." Sandro Jung notes in a recent monograph on the visual history of Thomson's poem, in Bewick's hands "nature and human life has reached a balance, and even the rustic cottage no longer features as an alien object within the landscape but is naturalized." It was the same year that this edition of THE SEASONS was published that Wordsworth rhapsodized Bewick in LYRICAL BALLADS: "O now that the genius of Bewick were mine, / And the skill which he learned on the banks of the Tyne! / Then the Muses might deal with me just as they chose, / For I'd take my last leave both of verse and of prose. / What feats would I work with my magical hand! / Book learning and books would be banished the land." Hugo 203; Tattersfield TB 2.569.
