Contemporary calf, covers pnelled in gilt, backstrip gilt with black label, edges marbled. A very good copy, bookplates of Mathew Wilson and Frances Mary Richardson Currer. First edition. The frontispiece is an engraving of the Quintain' Seal and the plate shows seven Shakespeare signatures, four genuine and three fake. A pleasant association copy as Frances Currer (1785-1861) is generally held to be one of the greatest female bibliophiles of all time; Mathew Wilson had married to CurrerÕs mother in 1800 and the Wilsons inherited the vast Currer estate after Frances died. DNB notes: ÒT. F. Dibdin considered that Currer's collection placed her Ôat the head of all female collectors in EuropeÕ (Reminiscences, 2.949) and that her country house library was, in its day, surpassed only by those of Earl Spencer, the duke of Devonshire, and the duke of Buckingham. Seymour De Ricci wrote that she was ÔEngland's earliest female bibliophileÕ (De Ricci, 141).Ó Freeman, Bibliotheca Fictiva, 503. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Document Signed

      This Revolutionary War general of checkered reputation resigned twice during the course of the war, then was involved in shady negotiations with the Spanish governor of Louisiana to separate the Kentucky area and turn it over to Spain; he fought against the Indians, was the officer to whom the British handed over Detroit, and became the first governor of the Louisiana Territory (1805-07); he survived two court martials, one regarding his support of Aaron Burr badly tarnishing his reputation. DS, 4pp (lettersheet), 7 3/4" X 12½, Woodford County, Commonwealth of Virginia, 1792 January 6. Very good. Mild age toning and bit of foxing, with some small separations at some fold lines, but overall clean and quite legible, penned on extra heavy stock. Handsomely penned indenture, chock full of repetitive formulaic boilerplate legalese, in which Wilkinson and his wife Anne sell to William Murray Jr. for "the sum of twenty pounds current money of Virginia... Two lotts of ground in the town of Frankfort...." (Murray, according to one history, "came to Kentucky soon after the State was admitted to the Union.... He is described as "a bold and eloquent man, an aggressive politician and a brilliant speaker; a man of whom his contemporaries never spoke except in terms of unqualified admiration and 'was probably the most accomplished scholar among all the eminent men of Kentucky at that day.' He was a lawyer of sufficient ability to cope successfully with such men as George Nicholas, John Breckinridge and Henry Clay....") Signed large and bold by Wilkinson at the bottom of the second page, where he also signs below his signature for wife Ann. Alongside each signature is a red wax seal. At lower right, this transaction has been signed by three witnesses: John Hughes, Richard Thomas and GABRIEL MAUPIN (Revolutionary War officer, 1720-94, a Williamsburg tavernkeeper, saddler and harness maker who served as keeper of the Public Magazine). The third and fourth leaves, in addition to the usual docketing, contain an odd variety of affidavits: First is a statement signed by Michael Rappele, alderman from the "City of Philadelphia," dated February 23, 1816, testifying that James Wilkinson appeared before him, "the Grantor in the foregoing deed... and acknowledged the same to be his act and deed...." Second is a statement from Willis A. Lee, of the "State of Kentucky General Court," dated May 11, 1816, "hereby certify[ing] that this deed and the certificates of acknowledgments thereon endorsed was produced to me... and truly admitted to record in my office...." And third and last is a lengthier endorsement filling half of the fourth leaf and signed by ROBERT WHARTON (1757-1834, the longest-serving mayor in Philadelphia history, elected fifteen times between 1798 and 1824), from "City of Philadelphia" and dated March 27, 1816, noting that Wilkinson "acknowledged the same to be his act and deed and desired to might be recorded as such...." Boldly signed by Wharton and with large circular flute-edged paper seal intact. A couple of months after Wilkinson signed this deed (January 6, 1792) he was commissioned a brigadier general under General Anthony Wayne (March 1792), whom he disliked and attempted to discredit; and a couple of months further along (June 1792) the Commonwealth of Virginia county from which this deed was written (Woodford County), along with several other counties, became the new state of Kentucky. The ever-scheming Wilkinson had been conspiring with Esteban Miro, Spanish governor of Louisiana (on whose payroll it turns out he was listed), to make sure the U.S. handed over its interest in Kentucky to Spain. An intriguing and curious document. Why Wilkinson pursued the endorsements appended to the deed 24 years after the sale is uncertain; in 1816 Wilkinson had just published an autobiography, "Memoirs of My Own Times" -- according to one source, "three confused volumes of documents which are as significant for what they omit as for what they contain" -- and was living on a plantation below New Orleans. Truly a provocative item worth further research. Accompanied by a small (4½" X 5½") 19th century engraved portrait of Wilkinson in profile within a 2¼" circle -- heavy stock and unusual in that it is glazed, with a heavy plate mark. Could it be that Wilkinson sold this land in '92 because he thought his scheme to place this territory under Spanish control might soon come to fruition?

        An original powder bucket from Horatio Nelson's flagship, the H.M.S. Victory with exceptional provenance

      n.p., c. 1805. 10.5"(ht.), 10.25" (diam.). "A leather ship's powder bucket, 10.5"" tall, 10.25"" diameter, with two iron rings at top, affixed with leather straps that tuck under an iron rim and affixed with rivets which additionally hold together the seam and bottom portion, and boldly painted in gilt along side: ""H.M.S VICTORY / GR / 1805"". Examination under a microscope also reveals use-wear marks overall, non-machine-era tool marks, anvil-forged iron and copper rivets and what is called ?good dirt? and tiny cobwebs in the crevasses consistent with it being of the Trafalgar era, gilt lettering likely repainted at a later date. Following the battle of Trafalgar, the H.M.S. Victory was badly damaged and could not return under the power of its own sail. After delivering Nelson's body to London, the Victory was repaired and remained in active service until 1812 when she was moored at Portsmouth. The ship served as a training ship for some time but by the turn of the 20th century, it had deteriorated so badly that in 1910 a group of enthusiasts established the Society for Nautical Research to help fund restoration of the ship which was finally completed well after the close of the Second World War (the last repairs were not completed until 2005, just in time for the bicentennial of Trafalgar). Today, it is the oldest commissioned warship in the world and attracts over 350,000 visitors as a museum ship. To help fund its restoration efforts, the Society for Nautical Research took unusable parts, including nails and copper sheathing, and melted them down to be refashioned as souvenirs. Provenance: Society for Nautical Research; obtained by the War Museum from a prominent British naval family collection, which had additionally featured relics from the noted Benjamin Hill Collection?"that holding included one of the largest swatches of Nelson's ensign that flew at Trafalgar in private hands. Some of these relics were featured in a recently-published peer-reviewed article, a copy of which has been included for reference."

        An Account of a Voyage to establish a colony at Port Philip in Bass's Strait,

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme; and J. C. Mottley, Portsmouth,, 1805. on the South Coast of New South Wales, in His Majesty's Ship Calcutta, in the years 1802?-3?-4. Octavo (204 x 123 mm). Bound by Bayntun in tan half calf, pale orange cloth, raised bands to spine, dark brown morocco label, sailing ship tools to compartments gilt, top edge gilt, others trimmed, marbled endpapers. Bound with half-title, with adverts on last leaf verso. Cloth boards slightly mottled with a few small dark spots, offsetting from turn-ins to endpapers, mild browning to text block edges. Otherwise an excellent copy. First edition. The only known contemporary publication describing the failed attempt at establishing a settlement at Port Phillip under the command of Lieutenant-Governor David Collins. James Hingston Tuckey (1776?-1816) was an Irish naval officer appointed first lieutenant of HMS Calcutta in 1803. Together with the storeship Ocean, the Calcutta set out for Australia with free settlers and about 300 convicts. The settlers remained in the area of Port Phillip Bay for about half a year before the settlement had to be abandoned due to hostility from the Aborgines, lack of water, swampy land, and difficulties of navigation. During these months, Tuckey was nonetheless able to survey the harbour of Port Phillip, as well as carefully examining the surrounding coast and countryside. While part of the expedition continued onwards to Hobart, Tuckey decided to return to England via Sydney, arriving in London in the autumn of 1804. The failure of this expedition meant that Port Phillip remained unsettled for more than twenty years, being used only occasionally as a harbour by the whalers and sealers of Bass Strait.

        An Account of a Voyage to establish a colony at Port Philip in Bass's Strait, on the South Coast of New South Wales, in His Majesty's Ship Calcutta, in the years 1802–3–4.

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme; and J. C. Mottley, Portsmouth, 1805 - Octavo (204 x 123 mm). Bound by Bayntun in tan half calf, pale orange cloth, raised bands to spine, dark brown morocco label, sailing ship tools to compartments gilt, top edge gilt, others trimmed, marbled endpapers. Cloth boards slightly mottled with a few small dark spots, offsetting from turn-ins to endpapers, mild browning to text block edges. Otherwise an excellent copy. Bound with half-title, with adverts on last leaf verso. First edition. The only known contemporary publication describing the failed attempt at establishing a settlement at Port Phillip under the command of Lieutenant-Governor David Collins. James Hingston Tuckey (1776–1816) was an Irish naval officer appointed first lieutenant of HMS Calcutta in 1803. Together with the storeship Ocean, the Calcutta set out for Australia with free settlers and about 300 convicts. The settlers remained in the area of Port Phillip Bay for about half a year before the settlement had to be abandoned due to hostility from the Aborgines, lack of water, swampy land, and difficulties of navigation. During these months, Tuckey was nonetheless able to survey the harbour of Port Phillip, as well as carefully examining the surrounding coast and countryside. While part of the expedition continued onwards to Hobart, Tuckey decided to return to England via Sydney, arriving in London in the autumn of 1804. The failure of this expedition meant that Port Phillip remained unsettled for more than twenty years, being used only occasionally as a harbour by the whalers and sealers of Bass Strait.

        The first broadside printing of Jefferson's 1805 inaugural address, on silk

      [Boston], [March 16, 1805]. 12" x 22". "Broadside, President Jefferson's Inaugural Speech. ([Boston: True & Parks, 1805]), 12"" x 22"", on silk. Stitched at edges and laid down on a textile. Some fraying and losses to several words. Housed in an ornate wood frame with gilt accents. Jefferson's landslide victory in the election of 1804 was marred by the death of his 24-year-old daughter Polly during childbirth. Instead of walking to his second inauguration, Jefferson rode in a carriage, dressed in black. Despite his electoral mandate, Jefferson chose not to dwell upon the recently-completed Louisiana Purchase, cognizant that many feared that the enlargement of the nation risked fracturing the Union (indeed a group of Massachusetts Federalists briefly conspired to break from the Union over this issue): ""I know that the acquisition of Louisiana had been disapproved by some from a candid apprehension that the enlargement of our territory would endanger its union. But who can limit the extent to which the federative principle may operate effectively? The larger our association the less will it be shaken by local passions; and in any view is it not better that the opposite bank of the Mississippi should be settled by our own brethren and children than by strangers of another family? With which should we be most likely to live in harmony and friendly intercourse?"" Jefferson focused instead on the state of Native Americans within in the United States: ""The aboriginal inhabitants of these countries I have regarded with the commiseration their history inspires. Endowed with the faculties and the rights of men, breathing an ardent love of liberty and independence, and occupying a country which left them no desire but to be undisturbed, the stream of overflowing population from other regions directed itself on these shores; without power to divert or habits to contend against it, they have been overwhelmed by the current or driven before it; now reduced within limits too narrow for the hunter's state, humanity enjoins us to teach them agriculture and the domestic arts; to encourage them to that industry which alone can enable them to maintain their place in existence and to prepare them in time for that state of society which to bodily comforts adds the improvement of the mind and morals. We have therefore liberally furnished them with the implements of husbandry and household use; we have placed among them instructors in the arts of first necessity, and they are covered with the aegis of the law against aggressors from among ourselves."" Yet, quite paternalistically, Jefferson bemoaned their insistence on maintaining their traditional ways, casting them as enemies of reason?"and by extension?"civilization: ""But the endeavors to enlighten them on the fate which awaits their present course of life, to induce them to exercise their reason, follow its dictates, and change their pursuits with the change of circumstances have powerful obstacles to encounter; they are combated by the habits of their bodies, prejudices of their minds, ignorance, pride, and the influence of interested and crafty individuals among them who feel themselves something in the present order of things and fear to become nothing in any other. These persons inculcate a sanctimonious reverence for the customs of their ancestors; that whatsoever they did must be done through all time; that reason is a false guide, and to advance under its counsel in their physical, moral, or political condition is perilous innovation; that their duty is to remain as their Creator made them, ignorance being safety and knowledge full of danger; in short, my friends, among them also is seen the action and counteraction of good sense and of bigotry; they too have their antiphilosophists who find an interest in keeping things in their present state, who dread reformation, and exert all their faculties to maintain the ascendancy of habit over the duty of improving our reason and obeying its mandates."" Scarce. True & Parks, the publisher of The Democrat first printed Jefferson's inaugural on the front page of the March 16, 1805 issue of the paper and then offered a special silk broadside version to subscribers. Writing on page three of that issue, the publisher remarked that ""This document cannot be raised in the estimation of our readers, by any comments within our power to advance. To pay our small tribute of respect to its author, we have directed our attention for its display in the Democrat, in some degree correspondent with its invaluable merit. Those who wish it preserved as an ornament, to adorn the parlor, while it will afford a rich treasure of instruction for their budding offspring; are respectfully informed that we have printed a number on elegant WHITE SATIN, to answer so desirable a purpose."" (The Democrat, Boston, March 16, 1805, p. 3) This was the first souvenir broadside edition of Jefferson's second Inaugural address. It is unknown how many True & Parks printed, but only a handful survive in institutional collections including the Massachusetts Historical Society, The Newberry Library and the University of Virginia. Not in Shaw & Shoemaker. (See Noble E. Cunningham, The Inaugural Addresses of Thomas Jefferson, 1801 and 1805, p. 90, figure 6-3)"

Die Vorrede von Franz Nicolaus Baur umfaßt die Seiten 1 - 142. 2ccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli [nikko'l? makja'v?lli] (* 3. Mai 1469 in Florenz, Republik Florenz; † 21. Juni 1527 ebenda) war ein florentinischer Philosoph, Politiker, Diplomat, Chronist und Dichter. Vor allem aufgrund seines Werkes Il Principe (dt. Der Fürst) gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten Staatsphilosophen der Neuzeit. Machiavelli ging es hier – im Ansatz neutral – darum, Macht analytisch zu untersuchen, anstatt normativ vorzugehen und die Differenz zwischen dem, was sein soll und dem, was ist, festzustellen. Er orientierte sich in seiner Analyse an dem, was er für empirisch feststellbar hielt.[1] Sein politisches und literarisches Werk Discorsi ist darüber in den Hintergrund getreten. Der später geprägte Begriff Machiavellismus wird oft als abwertende Beschreibung eines Verhaltens gebraucht, das zwar raffiniert ist, aber ohne ethische Einflüsse von Moral und Sittlichkeit die eigene Macht und das eigene Wohl als Ziel sieht. Sein Name wird daher heute häufig mit rücksichtsloser Machtpolitik unter Ausnutzung aller Mittel verbunden." (Wikipedia) * * Gut bis sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar. * * * *Achtung ! ! !

        Autograph letter signed.

      Rome, 27 March [1805].. 3 pp. 8vo.. To an unnamed correspondent; address panel on verso of third page: "I have been deeply touched, dear Sir, by the feeling which inspired your article and I can say, without being influenced by my gratitude toward you, that there are some words in it that are remarkable not only for the elevation of thought, but I may add also for the soundness of judgment they indicate when you talk about my father. If you still read Le publiciste you must have seen in it a really touching letter. I may say that all that reaches me from Paris is in harmony with what I have been longing for. In the note on opposite natures, there is a line you wrote which I find extremely witty and true at the same time: there is no doubt that the big difference that exists between some souls, whose cause is unknown from us, makes it impossible for certain persons to understand each other ever and I think I would understand more easily the expression in the eye of some Persian than what some people say, even though they speak French. Thank you very much for giving me the hope that we will see each other in Milan. Your kindness to me makes you feel more attached to me: this is the sure sign of a generous nature. It is in six weeks probably that I will have the pleasure of seeing you again. I have enjoyed the arts and nature in the South of Italy, but my most tender affections were born when I first got to Milan, and returning there gives me a renewed pleasure, since you have shown me so clearly that my friends there have not forgotten me".

        An Inquiry into the permanent Causes of the Decline and Fall of Powerful and Wealthy Nations, illustrated by four engraved Charts

      London: W. Marchant for Greenland and Norris,, 1805. Designed to shew how the prosperity of the British Empire may be prolonged. Quarto (263 × 207 mm). Contemporary marbled boards, recently rebacked and recornered in sprinkled calf, spine ruled gilt, red leather label. Ex-libris the University of Detroit, with bookplate on front pastedown, and presentation bookplate to the library from Major William Butler. Discreet library blind-stamp of the University of Detroit on title-page, and on pp. 17 and 70, and with ink accession number on title-page; short tears to fold of both the frontispiece and the third chart, occasional light foxing and some slight offsetting from charts. A very attractive copy. First edition of this important work and a remarkable attempt to present a general and comparative theory of the rise and fall of nations, and thus extract lessons from the downfall of the great empires of history and in so doing "find the means by which prosperity may be lengthened out, and the period of humiliation procrastinated to a distant day" (p. iv). As its title indicates, the Inquiry combines aspects of Smith's Wealth of Nations (1776) and Gibbon's Decline and Fall (1776-1788). Playfair surveys historical empires and argues that decline can be measured and thus prevented and forestalled; in particular, he insists that commerce, not conquest, sustains national power and that nations, particularly England, can maintain commercial prosperity if they direct their attention to preservation rather than extension. Particular attention must be paid to managing the national debt and maintaining a trade balance in favour of export. In addition to citing the work of Smith and Gibbons, his method draws upon the work of Hume, Ferguson and others, and draws from many disciplines. The causes of decline that Playfair adduces sound surprisingly modern. He saw over-mature economies as having certain common characteristics: high taxation, high prices, a very unequal distribution of property, strong special interest groups, monopolies, failures of motivation, and a high tendency to import. He thought that these burdens tended to result in a flight of capital to nations who could employ it more profitably, and in a natural and irreversible decline. He concludes that a proactive government-driven approach to the problem of decline can prolong national wealth and power. "It is, then, wealth arising from industry, that is the object to be aimed at, and that cannot be obtained by war or conquest" (p. 293). As early as 1786, Playfair is credited with the introduction of presenting economic information in simple chart form - line, circle, bar and pie graphs - and this celebrated work includes four fine examples. The striking frontispiece chart spans three millennia and shows the comparative progress and decline of all known empires, from ancient empires in Egypt and Assyria through modern empires in Europe and emergent empires in the Americas. The brother of the great physicist John Playfair, William was an adventurous character. He lived for some time in France, and is reported to have been a prisoner in the Bastille in 1789 when it was stormed at the beginning of the French Revolution. He published about forty works, and was also a notable editor of Smith's Wealth of Nations. His work was much admired by Dugald Stewart, Adam Smith's biographer and friend.

        NEW AMERICAN COOKERY, OR FEMALE COMPANION. CONTAINING FULL AND AMPLE DIRECTIONS FOR ROASTING, BROILING, STEWING, HASHING, BOILING, PRESERVING, PICKLING, POTTING, FRICASEES, SOUPS, PUFF-PASTES, PUDDINGS, CUSTARDS, PIES, TARTS, & C. ALSO, THE MAKING OF WINES AND CHEESE. PECULIARLY ADAPTED TO THE AMERICAN MODE OF COOKING

      D. D. Smith, New York 1805 - Twentyfourmo (3-3/8" x 5-3/8") bound in original full sheep leather with gilt rules on the spine; 180 pages. The second American cookbook, preceded by Amelia Simmons's much better known AMERICAN COOKERY, printed four times before the publication of this volume, which is much scarcer than the Simmons. It is also distinguished as the first American cookbook published in New York. In addition to the recipes for broiling, hashing, preserving, pickling, fricasees, soups, puddings, pies, etc., there are 20 pages devoted to the making of wine, quite early for an American book. Bitting page 581: "There are some unusual recipes, one for spinach, a forerunner for the spinach of today, cooking with no added water, garnished with poached eggs, and unusual for that period; oranges cut in quarters." Lowenstein 36 cites another New York imprint of T. B. Jansen in the same year. Lacking the endpapers; small chip at the top of the spine. A clean, attractive, unsophisticated copy in original binding of a scarce and important book [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
