In the final years of his life, he wrote an invaluable history of theater and music in Liège.The present catalogue describes a collection of 181 lots of drawings, prints, and books. Lot 130 is an impressive suite of about 300 drawings by Johan (or Jan) de Witt. There are also works by Castiglione, Veronese, Mantegna, Maratta, Piombo, Raphael, Bakhuysen, Bloemaert, both Breughels, van Dyck, Dürer, Goyen, Lairesse, Jordaens, Wouwerman, Chardin, Poussin, etc. The sale schedule is on pages 27-28; the final 14 lots are books.Very good copy, in the characteristic binding of the Bibliothèque Heim, with the library's stamp in the usual location.

THOMAS PAINE
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.THOMAS PAINE.Autograph Letter Signed, to Elisha Babcock. New Rochelle, N.Y., July 2, 1805. 1 p., 8 x 10 in., with address leaf.TranscriptNew Rochelle July 2d '05--CitizenIn 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Warren, Mercy Otis
Boston: Printed by Manning and Loring, for E. Larkin, 1805. Three volumes. xii,447; vii,[1],412; vi,[2],475pp. 19th-century full calf, spines gilt, leather labels. Moderately but evenly tanned, scattered foxing. About very good. In a calf-rimmed cloth slipcase. This excellent account of the events of the Revolution was written by a woman intimate with those prominent in the Revolutionary councils of Massachusetts. Throughout the Revolutionary period, historian, poet, and dramatist Mercy Otis Warren actively corresponded on political matters with numerous leaders including Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and especially John Adams, who became her literary mentor in those early years of unrest. In 1805 her literary career culminated with the publication of THE HISTORY OF THE RISE, PROGRESS, AND TERMINATION OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. The book's sharp criticisms of Adams - that his passions and prejudices often debilitated his judgment and that he had demonstrated a distinct leaning toward monarchy during his sojourn in England - led to a heated correspondence and a breach in their friendship in 1807. After nearly five years Elbridge Gerry managed to effect a reconciliation between Mercy and Abigail and John. Howes describes this book as the first important historical work by an American woman. "Her history is interesting both for the expert knowledge it reveals of public affairs and for its lively and penetrating commentary upon the leading figures of the day, more especially for the caustic analysis of character and motive … [Click Below for Full Description]

GREENE, Pitt Burnaby.
Home waters: , 1805-8. Folio. Original vellum, purchase logbook, blind panelling to the boards, titles inked to both boards. Neatly tabulated log, with the usual columns - speed, heading, winds, "remarks & occurrences" - maintained in a consistently legible if sometimes slightly hurried hand. Successive logs written starting at opposite ends, the 158-page log of the Cockatrice at the front; the 104-page account of service with the Foxhound inverted at the back. Externally somewhat rubbed and soiled but entirely sound, contents lightly browned, but overall very good and highly characterful. Highly attractive Napoleonic period commander's logbook. Pitt Burnaby Greene made lieutenant in 1790, and was promoted to the rank of commander May 8 1804. His first command was HMhb Cockatrice, originally launched in 1781 as an Alert-class class of British Royal Navy cutter, but after she sank at her moorings in 1801 she was sold to private interests, her burthen increased from 181 to 195 tons by cutting her in half and lengthening her, and her rig changed to that of a brig. The Admiralty hired her and she recommenced service as His Majesty's hired brig (HMhb) Cockatrice on 6 August 1804. Greene took command on 6 April 1805, the log begins 7 July off Drake's Island in Plymouth Sound. During his tenure Cockatrice patrolled and escorted convoys, but did not capture any prizes. On 30 March 1806, Greene was off Ireland with orders to take on board the Earl of Hardwicke, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1801-1805).

CONCISE HISTORY
London: Printed by Gilbert & Reed... Published by G. Riley... Harris... and Sold by all Booksellers and Newsmen, 1805. Frontispiece cut a little close just touching last two words of caption; original marbled sides worn in places.. Octavo, frontispiece comprising four Aboriginal portraits and a scene (see below); pp. [ii], ii, ii, xcvi, 40; this is the first piece in a contemporary volume of otherwise political pamphlets, chiefly of Irish interest; bound in half calf, rebacked. A highly important, rare and very early sympathetic account of the Australian Aborigines, published in the second decade of first settlement, included as the second part of this early account of New South Wales aimed at a popular audience. This is the "second edition, with additions", and one of two issues which appear to vary only in their publisher's imprint. The first edition had appeared the previous year but that was a different animal as it didn't have the important engraved frontispiece of Aboriginal subjects. Although published anonymously, as will be seen below, the information on the Aborigines derived from, and may very well have been the work of, James Thomson, Third Fleet surgeon and later assistant to William Balmain. The initial 96-page section gives a history of the settlement, sourced chiefly from the First Fleet writers, which concentrates on quite precise statistics regarding land use and ownership, status of convicts and free settlers, with some anecdotal history as well as the main story. However the 40-page section that follows is a remarkable piece, a chiefly sympathetic desc … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gilt title- and tome-labels to spines. Corners with light wear and a few minor scratches to spines. Half-titles evenly browned, otherwise just a bit of minor scattered brownspotting. Previous owner's name (L. Zeuthen?) in contemporary hand to front free end-papers. A fine set.Lauritz Zeuthen (1854-1923) was an important Danish barrister, who was very politically active and influential. ¶ Exceedingly rare first French translation - being the very first translation of the work into any language - of Tolstoi's magnum opus, arguably the most famous book ever written in Russian, "War and Peace". It is this translation that is responsble for establishing Tolstoi's reputation in France and for making him known to the French public. It is furthermore this translation that serves as the basis for the later translations into other languages, e.g. Clara Bell's important first English translation (1886). In the 1870'ies and early 80'ies, Tolstoi was hardly known in France, which meant that even his magnum opus was only printed in a small number of copies (presumably merely 500) and that "scarcely anyone bought it then" (Hemmings). The translation was produced in St. Petersburg by Princess Irina Paskevich; it was also printed in St. Petersburg, whereupon the 500 copies were sent to Paris, where they appered with "Paris, Librarie Hechette et Cie" on the title-pages.

He published 6 issues per month, each with a colored plate, except in the issue from day 15th when he accompanied it with 2 plates. The volume corresponding to the passage of the Republican calendar to the Julian calendar is exceptional, when the cancellation of the An 14 with the year 1806 met in the same volume, requiring the increase of the numbers of that volume from 84 to 105.The plates of female fashion (only occasionally male) are magnificent and the whole delicious. La Mésangère is considered as the definer of bourgeois taste in clothing, to the point of that there are numerous studies on his magazine and the establishment of a taste that drived the development of fashion.The high periodicity … [Click Below for Full Description]

STIEGLITZ (Christian Ludwig).
Leipzig, George Voss, 1805. in-4. VIII. 124pp. + 28 planches. Demi veau moderne genre ancien, dos à nerfs orné. Bel ouvrage sur les jardins, du poète et architecte allemand Christian-Ludwig Stiegletz (1756-1836). Il fut publié pour la première fois en français en 1796, et ne parut en langue allemande qu'en 1804. Ce traité d'architecture champêtre est illustré de 28 belles planches gravées représentant des bâtiments dans leur environnement paysagé, avec leur plan et diverses figures de meubles et d'ornements architecturaux; elles sont curieusement accompagnées d'un texte littéraire caractéristique de la période pré-romantique. Ce récit d'une intrigue romanesque se déroulant dans les lieux représentés, donne à l'ouvrage une orientation marquée vers les critères artistiques annonciateurs du romantisme. "Pour ôter à la description de ces jardins le ton de sécheresse et de monotonie, dans lequel il aurait été facile de tomber, et pour rendre nos tableaux plus animés, nous avons pris, dans notre prose, le style de la poésie. Nous conduirons le lecteur à travers ces jardins, comme dans une promenade, pendant laquelle l'âme douée de douces sensations, sera pénétrée de celles que lui feront éprouver alternativement les différents paysages, ou les charmes des détails piquants, qui se reproduiront souvent aux yeux".

Contemporary dark green straight-grain morocco, smooth spines gilt all over at head and tail, gilt-lettered direct in second compartment, gilt-numbered direct in fifth, central compartments with gilt ornaments, sides with wide gilt borders built up of outer double fillets enclosing decorative rolls and repeated flower tools, decorative rolls to turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Joints tender, corners worn, internally clean, a very good copy in a presentation binding. Stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece, half-titles, publisher's advert leaf at end of vol. I, errata leaf and 3 leaves of publisher's adverts at end of vol. II. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed on the first binder's blank in each volume "Gift of the author to J.S.", and each front board with an oval armorial blind stamp towards the upper outer corner (argent, three bends sable, crest a talbot's head erased). We have been unable to identify the recipient. University of Toronto libraries have the same stamp, identifying the crest as a griffin's head and the stamp that of the Travers family of Devon. But the bookplate has the same monogram "J.S.", as in this copy, which, as the Toronto cataloguer admits, "may rule out Travers". The Inferno was published in two volumes in 1805 and 1806, and its episodic publication is reflected in the contemporary bindings here, which are closely matched without sharing any of the same tools, clearly the work of different binders.

ISAAC G. BARNET to GARRET D. WALL
CINCINNATI OHIO, OH to TRENTON, NEW JERSEY NJ: (1805). 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. On offer is a unique and gorgeously written letter from an lawyer, by the name of Isaac G. Barnet,who has recently relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio from England. He is writing to a friend, Garret D. Wall, in Trenton, New Jersey. Garret Wall was at the time just a practicing attorney in New Jersey, however, he would go on to serve a long illustrious life, first as a clerk for the New Jersey Supreme Court, then as the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, then being elected a New Jersey Senator from 1835 to 1841, and finishing his life as a high court judge. In language that is often elegant and very obviously from an educated man, the Mr. Barnet's writes of many topics, such as his recent departure from Trenton, New Jersey to Cincinnati, his new professional life in Cincinnati, his old practice in Westminster (in London, England) and the ease at which he finds that people can pass the Bar exam in his new home and the consequences this seems to have had. He begins the letter as such: "The most difficult part of a letter is said to be the beginning, but I have found it the easiest in this instance, having already begun, without knowing how to continue, the fact is, I feel in but an indifferent mood this evening, and you shall pay for it, by being obliged to read what will neither be amusing enough to ____ a smile nor entertaining enough to please. This letter will give you no other pleasure than that which a sensible mind will always feel on hearing from an absent friend." He continues, apologizing for even … [Click Below for Full Description]

WARREN, Mercy Otis.
E Larkin, Boston, 1805. Volume I: TP + [iii]-viii = An Address to the Inhabitants of the United States of America + [ix]-xii = Contents + [1]-447 + 1 blank leaf; Volume II: TP + [iii]-vii = Contents + [1]-412; Volume III: 1 blank leaf + TP + [iii]-vi = Contents + [1]-475. Octavo. First Edition.In this three-volume History, Warren specifically eschews a "dry narrative of military havoc," and, instead, spends considerable time discussing the characters of leading figures of the Revolution - many of whom she knew personally. This is a first-hand description of people and events as told by a woman who was closely connected with many of the events she describes - a female revolutionary who is now allied with Jefferson's Republican party and deep in her opposition to the Federalists who then dominated Massachusetts politics. It is hardly surprising then that President ThomasJefferson ordered subscriptions for himself and for his cabinet and noted his "anticipation of her truthful account of the last thirty years that will furnish a more instructive lesson to mankind than any equal period known in history."Despite its frequently critical treatments of the Federalist (most especially her former friend John Adams who was incensed by the accusations that she leveled against him), Warren's History is considerably more optimistic about the chances for the survival of an American republic than many of her earlier statements. Here, her support for the Federal Constitution, which she had opposed in the 1780s, is unstinting. Even with this more equable view of the first years of the Republ … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Cook, James; Children's] Davidson, Robert
Stanford (NY): Daniel Lawrence, and Henry Hull, and John F. Hull, 1805. A popular school text published at least six times from 1784 to 1812, but expanded from 60 to 72 pages in this 1805 edition. One of the first American works to include notice of Cook's Voyages. The geography is wide ranging, including Europe, Asia, Russia, India, Japan, New Guinea, Middle East, Africa, North and South America & the Thirteen States. The author creatively writes poetry to tell the story of the Globe. On page 52, an Australian section entitled "New Holland; and Isles in the Pacific Ocean" begins. "New Holland, south-east of East India lies; A continent equal to Europe in size; at the south cape of which call'd the land of Van Diemen, Were seen by Furneaux, that experienced Seaman; Ever-greens are the trees, rising high in a line; The soil appears rich, and the climate is fine; Yet the wretched possessors from place roam to place; The rudest they seem of the whole human race." On New Zealand: "More east, lies New Zealand, th' abode of wild men; There Cook and Furneaux met, but parted again- To these Isles if you come, let your conduct be kind; No wars be excited - no man left behind: These people will feast on the flesh of mankind!" Page 54-57 are devoted to Cook's second and third voyages, entitled "Cook's second Voyage round the Globe, to the south of the three Southern Continents" and "Cook's third voyage - in search of a North Passage." "From the Cape of Good Hope, in the year seventy three, Sail'd the brave Capt. Cook, on the wide southern sea. O'er the high swelling waves … [Click Below for Full Description]

La fonderia dei fratelli Amoretti di San Pancrazio, formatisi alla scuola del Bodoni, dopo la rottura con quest'ultimo, fu regolare fornitrice di caratteri per numerose tipografie italiane, tra cui le edizioni della Società Letteraria di Pisa, che pubblicò rinomate e belle edizioni dei classici italiani. "Giovanni Rosini professore di eloquenza nella Granducale Università di Pisa... fu il benemerito editore di quest'opera...

JAMES SHARPLES
1805. No binding. Condition: Fine. George Washington, pastel on paper, 9.2 by 7.5 in.

Sharples went back to oil painting after he returned to London shortly after completing his first portrait of Washington. This is one of Sharples' finest portraits of Washington. Other versions are in the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery as well as the National Portrait Gallery in London, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Independence Hall, and Colonial Williamsburg.
