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

      Paris, 1805. Modern half cloth and marbled boards, leather label. Light wear to binding. Slight trace of foxing. Else a near fine copy. An important early piece of Western Americana, describing a fur trading expedition up the Missouri to the White River of South Dakota in 1802. Besides being a major source of information on the early fur trade, it provides much information relating to the tribes along the Missouri River at the time. The map has been described as "the earliest published map of the trans-Mississippi region which can be said to display even the faintest semblance of accuracy" (Wheat). The plate depicts the mammoth fossil skeleton on display in Philadelphia. Two French editions were issued in 1805, one in Lyon, and the present Paris edition.

        [MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT, SIGNED, BY AUGUSTE CHOUTEAU, ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF ST. LOUIS, AND SIGNED CLERICALLY BY MOSES AUSTIN, REAL ESTATE SPECULATOR AND INITIAL FOUNDER OF THE AUSTIN COLONY IN TEXAS, CONCERNING FUNDS OWED TO HIS BROTHER, STEPHEN AUSTIN]

      New Orleans & St. Louis, 1805. Folio. Old folds. Small legal certificate, mentioned in text, affixed to recto of first leaf. Old ink stain on all three pages of text, obliterating a few words, with some loss of paper due to lead corrosion. Still, in very good condition. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A document written in New Orleans in 1801, while Louisiana was still under French control, concerning a petition made by Moses Austin to the supreme tribunal in New Orleans. The court was overseen by Nicolas Marie Vidal, lieutenant governor of the region, who served as the French government's representative overseeing the case. The petition concerns funds owed to Moses Austin's brother, Stephen, who received a bill of exchange from Pascal Detchemindy in June 1797 in Philadelphia. The funds were never repaid, although legal requests were submitted in Philadelphia, and then in the St. Genevieve district, where both Stephen Austin and Detchemindy were residents. The unresolved case was then directed to be reviewed by Vida, who decided that Detchemindy's objections to repaying Stephen Austin were unfounded, and ordered that restitution of funds be made immediately. Dated June 1, 1801, the decree by Vidal ordered that the payments be delivered in the city of New Orleans. Two additional legal statements in the document were signed in St. Louis four years later. This includes Auguste Chouteau's statement, signed as a judge in the district, in which he mentions the small stamp affixed to the bottom of the page which serves as a certificate of authenticity. The document also includes a statement signed in St. Louis on May 27, 1805, certifying [here in English translation] "that the translation done herewith for a petition presented by Mr. Austin to the supreme tribunal of New Orleans because of his lordship Don Nicolas Vidal's decree dated June 1, 1801, against Sr. Pascal Detchemindy of St. Genevieve, is as much conforms to the original that my knowledge of the Spanish language has allowed me." The Spanish translation is not included in the present document, but serves as a reminder of the various official languages and cultures present on the United States frontier at the beginning of the 19th century. Both Chouteau and Austin were active agents in the developing frontier and economy in the early history of the United States. Auguste Chouteau, born in New Orleans in 1749, was raised by his stepfather, Pierre Laclede, and his mother, Marie Therese Chouteau. He accompanied Laclede to the Illinois country in 1763 and the following year oversaw the initial stages of building and developing St. Louis. The founding occurred when the settlement was beginning to serve as the gateway to American, French, and Spanish commercial activity with Indians in the trans-Mississippi West. He became deeply involved in the fur trade there, and positive relations with the Osage allowed him to develop the business considerably; from 1794 to 1802 he held a monopoly on the Osage trade. Chouteau prospered as the village grew into a commercial hub, both under Spanish rule in the late 18th century and U.S. control beginning in 1804. Diversifying into banking and real estate as the fur trade declined, Chouteau was both a business and social leader in St. Louis. He was the first chairman of the board of trustees upon the town's incorporation in 1809. Moses Austin, with his brother, Stephen, gained control of Virginia's richest lead deposit circa 1790. Experienced miners and smelters from England were recruited to improve the operation, resulting in the founding of the American lead industry. He established Austinville at the lead mines in 1792. Looking westward to finance his enterprise further, he investigated rumored lead deposits in Spanish Upper Louisiana, and in 1798 he established the first Anglo-American settlement in Missouri. Austin continued to aggressively expand his wealth. "Using the efficient reverberatory furnace, the design of which he had learned from the English smelters, he soon controlled virtually all smelting in the region and amassed a wealth of $190,000. The second period in the history of the American lead industry is known as the Moses Austin period, and Austin's contributions characterized the lead industry until heavy machinery revolutionized mining and smelting after the Civil War" - ANB. Financial difficulties in the 1810s led Austin to develop a plan for creating an Anglo-American settlement in Spanish Texas. Although he didn't live to see this last plan to fruition, he did obtain permission to bring the colonists to the region, and his son, Stephen, was able to establish the colony in Texas. An early 19th-century document recording aspects of a legal case, under review both in New Orleans under the Spanish and in St. Louis as a part of the United States, involving two significant figures in the economic development and geographic expansion of the West.

        JAPANESE MERCHANT SHIP WITH THE FLAGS, CRESTS, AND INSIGNIA OF THE OWNERS AND THE MERCHANT HOUSES [translation of manuscript caption title]

      [Off the coast of Japan, 1805. Small chip in upper left corner, else near fine. Mounted at upper corners onto heavier paper stock. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet. A fine watercolor view of a Japanese merchant ship plying the waters off the coast of Japan. The work was done during the Krusenstern expedition, the first major Russian scientific voyage in the Pacific and the first circumnavigation of the world by a Russian ship. It was executed by the expedition's artist, Wilhelm Gottlieb Tilesius von Tilenau. The detailed work gives an excellent view of the technical aspects of Japanese vessels commonly used in the coastal trade, showing the ship's high bow, its rigging, the long rudder used to steer the vessel, and six crew members hard at work. The insignia of the ship is clearly shown on its stern. The crests or flags used by four other merchants are shown on the same paper along the right edge, just outside the border which surrounds the image of the ship. The original manuscript caption reads: "Ein Japanisches Kauffahrtsschiff aus Miako mit den Flaggen, Wappen und Inschriften der Warenbesitzer und Handels Compagnien. Hermann L. v. Loewenstern hat das Schiff mit dem Tauwerk gezeichnet. Dr. W. G. Tilesius ad nat. pinxit." The note explains that this watercolor was painted by Tilesius after a sketch by Loewenstern, fourth lieutenant on the Krusenstern expedition. In the English translation of the account of the Krusenstern voyage, Loewenstern is described as "an amiable and cultivated mind, he added a very extensive and well grounded knowledge of his profession." Wilhelm Gottlieb Tilesius von Tilenau (1769-1857) accompanied the Krusenstern expedition on the ships, Nadeshda and Newa, during the first Russian circumnavigation, from 1803 to 1806. After Russian painter Kurjlandzow left the expedition in Kamchatka in 1804, Tilesius became responsible for recording interesting observations relating to the geography and natural history of the places they visited. He contributed many detailed designs for the illustrations in the third volume of Krusenstern's account of the voyage, and also published several papers of his own research. Such original art from the Krusenstern circumnavigation is exceedingly rare.

        CAREY'S AMERICAN POCKET ATLAS; CONTAINING TWENTY MAPS...WITH A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF EACH STATE, AND OF LOUISIANA...Third Edition, Greatly Improved and Enlarged

      Philadelphia, 1805. Contemporary tree sheep, spine gilt, red morocco label. Very good. In a half brown morocco box. The third edition of the first American pocket atlas, significant for its new cartographic and textual information relating to the Louisiana Purchase and its map of the region published during the Lewis and Clark expedition. The guide, first published in 1796, is among the best early guides to the infant United States. This edition includes a general map of the United States, and maps of Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Ohio and the Northwest Territory, Maryland, Virginia, "Kentuckey" [sic], North Carolina, Tennessee (titled "Tennassee: lately the S.W. Territory"), South Carolina, Mississippi Territory and Georgia, and Louisiana. The maps were engraved by W. Barker, J.H. Seymour, A. Doolittle, and Shallus. Each map is accompanied by text, presumably written by Carey, which reviews the geography, laws, climate, navigation, commerce, and native tribes of each region. This edition includes a folding table providing information from the Federal Census of 1801 and a second table reviewing the value of exports from each state between 1791 and 1800, also found in the 1801 second edition of the atlas. The map of Ohio in this edition of the pocket atlas is among the first to depict the state following its entry into the Union, being printed from the same plate as the previous maps of the "Northwest Territory" but with changes to the plate reflecting statehood (see Smith, MAPPING OF OHIO, chapter 5, plate VI). However, the more significant additions to this 1805 edition of the pocket atlas, given prominence on the re-set titlepage for this edition, are the textual material relating to the Louisiana Purchase and the map of Louisiana not found in the previous editions. The map, engraved by Shallus, depicts the entire region west of the Mississippi River to the Pacific. The map is derivative of the 1804 Arrowsmith and Lewis map, with a similar "Soulard" mapping of the upper Missouri (see Wheat, TRANSMISSISSIPPI WEST 266 and chapter xi). The map would be the "base for maps of later vintage" (Wheat) including the map in Lester's 1809 so-called Apocrypha edition of Lewis and Clark, as well as in the 1812 Philadelphia edition of Gass' JOURNAL published by Carey. Interestingly, the latter appears to use the identical map as is here, with Wheat suggesting it to be a remainder, though more likely printed from the same plate (with the name of the engraver removed), as it was not included in Carey's 1810 or 1811 editions of Gass. This early cartographic fruit relating to the region takes on added significance considering its publication during the Lewis and Clark expedition.

        Le Départemens De La France Au Nord O Du Belge - Venise 1805.':.

      - Altkolorierter Kupferstich b. Società Calcografia in Venedig, dat. 1805, 48,5 x 65 Bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar! - Diese sehr seltene Karte gehört zu einem nie beendetem Projekt der "Società Calcografia", ein Zusammenschluß der beiden venezianischen Verleger des 18. Jahrhundert Antonio Zatta und Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. - Weitere Karten die uns aus dem Projekt bekannt sind tragen auch den Namen "à Venise Chez la Societe Chalcographique". - Das Projekt ist nie beendet worden und die Karten in keiner uns bekannten Bibliographie aufgeführt. - Die Karte zeigt Belgien und Luxembourg ("Département Des Forets") zwischen Zeeland, Laon, Saarlouis und Emmerich. - Unten links altkolorierte Kartusche. - Oben links Meilenzeiger. - Extrem seltener Einblattdruck! This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. The term Società Calcografica has been deduced from the map of the world, which is part of the collection and bears in the lower cartouche the French writing "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique". As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has ever been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini’s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 "Atlas Universelle" and from the plates of Antonio Zatta’s "Nuovo Atlante" published in 1796. Santini’s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died in 1811.

        CHINESE WAR JUNK OR COMMANDER'S VESSEL IN FRONT OF THE DANISH SETTLEMENT, DRAWN AFTER NATURE IN THE CANTON RIVER [translation of manuscript caption title]

      [China, 1805. Small chip (less than one inch) in upper right corner, else near fine. Mounted at upper corners onto heavier paper stock. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet. An extremely important and visually appealing watercolor depicting trading practices on the Canton River in China, early 19th century. The work was done during the Krusenstern expedition, Russia's first major scientific voyage in the Pacific and first circumnavigation of the world by a Russian ship. It was executed by the ship's artist, Wilhelm Gottlieb Tilesius von Tilenau. The view is from the perspective of a boat on the river and shows several Danish trading houses set up on the riverside. The buildings are made of wood and thatch, and several barrels and logs are also present. The factories fly flags of a white cross on a red background. Several men are shown on the riverbank, a tower is seen in the middle distance, and mountains are shown across the background. A large Chinese ship, identified in the manuscript caption as a "war junk," dominates the scene on the river, and six smaller vessels are also shown. The present image by Tilesius provides a rare and vivid record of these fleeting trade seasons, providing important details of the Danish post. The original manuscript caption is attached to the verso of the watercolor and reads: "Eine Chinesische Krieges Junke oder Kommandeurs Schiff vor dem Daenischen Bankshall. Dr. Tilesius v. T. ad nat. pinxit in flumine Sinico Taiho Cantonensi." In the early 19th century foreign merchants were allowed to trade in Canton for a short four-month season only. After that the warehouses and living quarters of the company were required to be torn down, only to rebuilt the following year at the company's expense. Wilhelm Gottlieb Tilesius von Tilenau (1769-1857) accompanied the Krusenstern expedition on the ships, Nadeshda and Newa, during the first Russian circumnavigation, from 1803 to 1806. After the Russian painter, Kurjlandzow, left the expedition in Kamchatka in 1804, Tilesius became responsible for recording interesting observations relating to the geography and natural history of the places they visited. He contributed many detailed designs for the illustrations in the third volume of Krusenstern's account of the voyage, and also published several papers of his own research. The largest part of his archive was presented to Leipzig University after his death, but the present work remained in the family of his son, Adolph Tilesius. Such original art from the Krusenstern circumnavigation is exceedingly rare.

        Reflections on the Causes of Unhappy Marriages, and on Various.

      1805 - George Cruikshank's Copy of a Rare Treatise on the Law of Marriage and Divorce [Cruikshank, George (1792-1878)]. Lewis, Randle. Reflections on the Causes of Unhappy Marriages, and on Various Subjects Therewith Connected. An Epitome of the Law of Marriage and Divorce. With Judicial Decisions Touching Separation, Alimony, the Debts and Separate Property of the Wife. To Which is Added, a Brief Account of the Civil Law and Spiritual Courts, with a New Plan for Settling Separate Maintenance Without Ecclesiastical Process. London: W. Clarke. 1805. [ii], vi, 160 pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 5"). Contemporary quarter morocco over marbled boards, gilt ornaments to spine, marbled endpapers, ribbon marker. Light rubbing to extremities, some light fading to spine (that is not really obvious). Some toning to text, light foxing in a few places, some soiling to title page, which has Cruikshank's signature at its head, internally clean. A lovely copy of a rare title with an interesting association. * Only edition. Written by a conveyancer of the Middle Temple, this is a little-known but well-argued treatise on marriage from a legal and social perspective. "The following sheets", Lewis writes, "will doubtless present themselves to the reader as a novelty: the subjects are various, but they are mostly connected; part of them have not hitherto been treated on, and none in the same way. The author having designed this little book for the perusal and information of the middle class of society, he has endeavoured to compose it in a plain, familiar, and concise manner; and introduced some passages, for the use and assistance of such as may be uninformed what books to consult, or may not have leisure or means to read voluminous, or expensive works" (iii). The chapter headings give some idea of this book: "The Causes of Unhappy Marriages," "On Love and Marriage," "On Modesty- Chastity-Continence-And Adultery," "On Separations-The Usual Methods Adopted-Advertisements-The Wife's Debts-Credit by Tradesmen-With advice Thereon," and nine other chapters on the law of divorce, property, the wife's rights, the jurisdiction of the courts, legal alimony and maintenance and other matters, including, surprisingly, the position of paupers. This copy belonged to the great caricaturist and book illustrator Cruikshank. It reflects his large body of satirical [Attributes: Hard Cover]

La Bibliothèque d'Apollodore, grammairien athénien du 1er siècle avant J.C. est une compilation de récits mythologiques, de diverses théogonies et de très anciennes légendes thébaines et attiques. L'oeuvre serait en définitive d'un autre auteur, qu'on nomme le Pseudo Apollodore, pour le distinguer du mythographe Apollodore d'Athènes ; elle représente le plus vaste répertoire mythologique et une incroyable synthèse des fables de l'Antiquité en se bornant à une explication claire et simple des différentes légendes et mythes, depuis l'origine du monde jusqu'aux héros de la guerre de Troie. Clavier en donne une bonne édition critique avec de nombreuses notes éclairantes.
