Gordon, described as "Captain of Invalids, retired" on the title page, dedicates this work to the Duke of York as Commander-in-Chief having been requested by him "to turn in his thoughts the subject of the Science of Defence, and to consider how it might be effectually applied against the cuts of Cavalry." The project was initiated under General Burgoyne when Commander in Ireland, Gordon drilling one hundred recruits in the new exercise being reviewed by the King and meeting with his "high approbation", recommending it in turn to Sir William Fawcett, the Adjutant General. The Treatise... seems to have met with wider approval on publication, receiving a lengthy and highly positive review in The Anti-Jacobin Review, "Captain Gordon writes with much modesty, and at the same time, with becoming confidence in the justness of the principles on which he grounds his exercise. And we cannot help thinking that instead of barely furnishing his mite, he has contributed very bountifully towards improving the science of defence." In one of his Appendices Gordon reprints a letter from Burgoyne to his successor in Ireland Gen. Sir William Pitt, remarkin … [Click Below for Full Description]

WARD, William (1766-1826) after Robert MULLLER
London: Published by J. Harris, Gerrard Street, Soho, Jan. 1, 1805. Mezzotint. State ii/ii, with the title in open thick and thin letters. In excellent condition. Image size: 10 3/8 x 9 1/4 inches. 14 7/8 x 10 7/8 inches. 17 1/2 x 12 3/4 inches. A lovely portrait of George Morland, the famous English genre painter. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. Morland was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. Morland is considered a master of genre, his beautiful paintings depict with insightful subtlety the tender side of English country life. This beautiful mezzotint portrait was done by Morland's brother-in-law, William Ward, as a memorial to the artist, who had died the year before, hence the dark gray border. It shows the artist in the act of observing and drawing with a calm rather benevolent gaze. Morland had led a riotous life, and friends and family no doubt wanted to remember him engaged in his work.

New-Orleans. 1805-1816.. Fifteen items bound in five volumes. Contemporary calf, leather labels. Some wear at extremities, a couple hinges cracked. Scattered browning and foxing, contemporary ink notes and signatures (several by Charles Mitchell), hole in one titlepage not affecting text. The front board of one volume bears the embossed name of "J.M. Ducros." Overall good to very good. In two brown half morocco clamshell boxes (the boxes are slightly different shades of brown). An extensive run of the important first laws of the territory and state of Louisiana, with the text in English and French. These laws established the foundation on which the American legal system was built, and this archive comprises the earliest collection of American laws west of the Mississippi. The influence of French and Spanish laws in North America is evident in these early territorial laws, as is the legal confusion created by the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. It took Congress more than two decades to determine their intent with regard to existing Spanish and French law. The present volumes cover the following sessions: first and second sessions, legislative council, 1805; first and second sessions, first legislature, 1807; "Acts Relative to Land Claims" and the Farewell Address of Washington, 1807; first and second sessions, second legislature, 1808- 9; first and second sessions, third legislature, 1810-11; first, second, and third sessions, general assembly, 1812-14; and first and second sessions, second legislature, 1815-16.

PREVOST, Jean Louis (active circa 1760-circa 1810)
Paris: Vilquin, 1805. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand by Ruotte. 20 3/4 x 13 3/4 inches. An exquisite plate of a rose- pink flowered hollyhock spray from arguably the most beautiful botanical work ever produced: "a work of outstanding importance and interest". Contemporary with the work of Redouté, 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits' is one of the earliest examples of stipple engraved and colour- printed botanical illustration. Published in 12 cahiers (or parts) of 4 plates each, the work was compiled to assist designers of porcelain and fabric, with the plates often showing flowers grouped together, usually matched according to their flowering season. The greatest collection of flower books to be sold at auction in the 20th century was the de Belder collection, sold by Sotheby's in 1987. The catalogue was intended as a true reflection of the uniqueness of the collection, and the cover illustration selected to represent the best of the best was an image from Prevost's 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits'. Dunthorne describes it as, "a work of outstanding importance and interest...issued for the specific purpose of maintaining the great French tradition for excellence of design and draughtsmanship. Perhaps no other prints are more worthy of carrying on the tradition of Jean Baptiste and van Spaendonck than these fine examples of Prévost. Whether bouquets or sprays of flowers or fruit, they possess a splendour and freshness amounting almost to fragrance, which is largely due to the quality of the colour printing" (Dunthorn … [Click Below for Full Description]

DANIELL, William (1769-1837)
London: William Daniell, 1 January 1805. Hand-coloured aquatint, drawn and engraved Daniell. (Light surface wear just below title where plate number removed). 15 3/4 x 25 3/8 inches. 19 1/2 x 29 1/16 inches. A wonderful and very rare image 'splendidly drawn, quiet and restrained in...colouring, [which] stand[s] at the high-water mark of aquatint in England' (Hardie & Clayton) This view is taken looking over the terrace at the Adelphi on the north bank of the river, across the river to the south west to Westminster Bridge, the Abbey and the old Houses of Parliament. 'After the publication of the Oriental Scenery William Daniell had clearly made up his mind that he would not be associated solely with India, and that his prowess as a draughtsman and as engraver in aquatint could well be employed for plates dealing with home scenery... in 1804-5, he made a start with a magnificent set of six views of London which show him at his very best as artist and engraver... These large views splendidly drawn, quiet and restrained in their colouring, stand at the high-water mark of aquatint in England' (Hardie & Clayton) Cf. M.Hardie & M.Clayton 'Thomas Daniell...

[Tilesius von Tilenau, Wilhelm Gottlieb]: Friderici, Herman von:
Nagasaki, Japan. March 1805.. Gouache and ink on paper, 7 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches. Signed along lower edge of image, original manuscript caption written on verso. One-inch chip in upper left corner, small chip in upper right corner and center of lower edge, else very good. Mounted at upper corners onto heavier paper stock. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet A handsome original gouache and ink on paper copy of plate seventy-two in the atlas of Cook's third voyage, called "A View of Bolcheretzkoi, in Kamtschatka." This copy of the view of Kamchatka natives, their huts, and their animals was made during the Krusenstern circumnavigation of the globe (1803 to 1806). It was drawn by Herman von Friderici, who was major of the General Staff for Ambassador Rezanov, and was presented to Wilhelm Gottlieb Tilesius von Tilenau, a naturalist and artist on the Krusenstern expedition. A manuscript note on the verso in Tilesius' hand explains that it was made by Friderici and given as a gift. Comparison with the actual plate in the Cook atlas shows this to be a very accomplished copy, with all the details from the original reproduced very faithfully. Ambassador Rezanov's mission was to attempt to open Japan to Russian trade, but he was ultimately unsuccessful. An interesting artifact, linking the Krusenstern and Cook voyages.

[Louisiana Territory]:
[Washington? 1805].. 17pp. Dbd. Upper margin of titlepage inscribed in a contemporary hand: "Hon.ble. Mr. Bradley." Some light foxing, else near fine. In a half morocco box. A brief account of Louisiana under its various occupations, calling for the swift establishment of its statehood. The pamphlet, which was presumably submitted to Congress, is dated 1804 by Sabin, but is more likely to have been printed after Dec. 31, 1804, when a memorial mentioned on page 5 was submitted, and before March 2, 1805, when the Orleans Territory government bill was passed. The present copy bears a contemporary ink ownership inscription, presumably in a clerical hand, of the "Hon.ble. Mr. Bradley." Stephen Row Bradley, U.S. Senator from Vermont from 1791 to 1795 and 1801 to 1813, was instrumental in advocating his own state's admission to the Union. This extremely rare pamphlet was evidently privately printed to lobby members of Congress to move swiftly to formulate a territorial government. It argues that the citizens were perfectly happy under the Spanish government, and that the successive changes in governments had led to laws being promulgated without publication. The pamphlet goes on to argue that the people of Louisiana can only be happy and loyal to the United States if they know they have equal rights as American citizens and can look forward to statehood and political representation.

Light marginal foxing on a few plates and slight soiling at head of a few leaves. In very fine condition. Bookplate of D. Maria Cristina, Queen of Spain. 92, 234 pp., 8 engraved folding plates, 3 folding tables. *** FIRST EDITION of this extensive report on the earliest government program of fumigation in Spain: a major public health initiative undertaken in an attempt to stop the spread of yellow fever. As recounted in the Mem—ria (pp. 1-92), after yellow fever broke out in Malaga in 1804, Prime Minister Manuel Godoy (1792-97 and 1801-08) quickly established a cordon sanitaire around AndalucÂ’a, Murcia, and Valencia. Then he sent to Paris for the latest in fumigation equipment and set Spanish engineers to producing copies. There was some resistance to using fumigation, since results to that point had been inconclusive. Godoy instructed a number of physicians and scientists to test Morveau's method for its effect on people, animals and clothing when various mineral acids were used (sulfuric, nitric, hydrochloric). The Mem—ria details the results of these tests and describes the quarantine measures that were taken when fumigation alone was deemed insuffic … [Click Below for Full Description]

Elle est signée par Petiet, intendant général de la Grande armée, pour ampliation (second original). «Monsieur l'intendant général de l'armée ayant autorisé le payeur général à se charger en recette et dépense sur le pied de deux francs cinquante centimes le florin d'Autriche en billets de la Banque de Vienne, et à donner la monnaie de cuivre ou de change au même taux et dans la même proportion que ces billets, je prie Votre Excellence de vouloir bien me donner l'autorisation de recevoir et verser suivant ces proportions. Quant à la monnaie de convention ou écus, il me paraît juste, ainsi qu'il est établi dans le rapport de M. le conseiller d'Etat Daru, que l'évaluation du florin soit à deux francs cinquante huit centimes puisque c'est à peu de chose près la valeur intrinsèque à celle établie pour les transactions ordinaires et commerciales [.]». Ministre de la Guerre sous le Directoire, intendant général de la Grande armée, il organise le camp de Boulogne et la campagne d'Austerlitz.

RIETER, JACOB og JOHANNES SENN. - [FIRST DANISH WORK ON NATIONAL COSTUMES]
(København, ca. 1805-08). 4to. Varierende bladstørrelser. Trykflade ca. 20x15 cm. Med 59 kobberstukne og håndkolorerede dragtplancher samt 6 tillægsplancher i tusch og akvarel. Alle med dansk og tysk tekst under billedet. Indlagt i bogæske af helshirt. Af største sjældenhed. Der udkom i alt 72 blade af denne, Danmarks første arbejde om vore nationaldragter, men en komplet serie kendes kun i ganske få eksemplarer - kun et eksemplar forefindes i offentlige biblioteker (UB, mens eksemplaret i KB ikke er fuldstændigt). Titlen kendes kun fra de 12 hefteomslag, som medfulgte udgivelsen, de er ikke til stede her. Rieter og Senn, som begge var født og uddannet i Schweitz, ankom til København i 1804, de gjorde dragtstudier på Sjælland, på Vesterhavsøerne og i Holsten. Serien af dragtplancher er opdelt i 2 afdelinger, den første viser københavnske (med Amager) og sjællandske dragter, mens den sidste gengiver sønderjydske (Holsten og de nordfrisiske øer). Denne sidste afdeling med ialt 37 plancher foreligger her komplet, og blev genudgivet 1909 af Karl Häberlin i "Volkstrachten der nordfriesischen Inseln". Rieter forlod København allerede i 1805, således måtte Senn fuldføre udgivelsen. Antageligt har Senn udført de fleste af tegningerne. De medfølgende 6 originale akvarel-plancher supplerer serien, således at den omfatter ialt 65.
