[Women in Business] Frances Clifton
[Philadelphia]: [1795-1806]. Manuscript book of business and domestic receipts, measuring 6.5 x 4" in handstitched marbled wrappers. 28 handwritten pages in ink, documenting the financial transactions of a woman who emigrated to the U.S. soon after its founding and became independent of her husband, poet Richard Nesbit. A research rich piece, the small ledger covering over a decade in Frances' life provides insight into how a woman of this period navigated property ownership, household management, and healthcare when her husband was incapacitated and unavailable to assist her. In The History of the Pennsylvania Hospital, Samuel Coates' report on insanity uses Richard Nesbit's life as a case study; and it is from this that we learn about Frances Clifton's marriage and emigration. Per Coates: "Richard Nesbit of London, born in England...went to the Island of St. Kitts and married the beautiful Frances Clifton, who was tho't equal if not Superior to any lady on the island." Documenting Nesbit's professional failings in St. Kitts and how they drove the couple to relocate to Philadelphia, Coates reports that five of Nesbit's business ventures eventually folded, led to his madness, and resulted in his being committed to the Pennsylvania Hospital Asylum. A poem by Nesbit and included in the report suggests Frances' departure from the marriage: "Depriv'd of Liberty and left to prove, The bitter want of Frances and her love...Thy letter came--Ah why not thy Return?" In Philadelphia on her own, Frances appears to have taken on both household and business management of her family of s … [Click Below for Full Description]

(SLAVERY.)
[London: Printed by George Eyre and Andrew Strahan, 1806]. [London: Printed by George Eyre and Andrew Strahan,, 1806]. Folio. Disbound. Slight creasing to margin, some toning around type. In very good condition. The parliamentary act banning all slave trading outside the British Empire, paving the way for the complete abolition of the slave trade the following year. The death of Pitt in January 1806 led to the appointment of the abolitionist government led by Lord Grenville and Charles James Fox, who introduced the bill soon after, at a time of relative weakness for the West India lobby. Disenchanted after the defeats of the previous few years, the abolitionists inside parliament initially paid the bill little attention, but it passed the early readings with little trouble and the abolitionist faction soon seized upon the bill, correctly recognizing its broader implications. Wilberforce recognized that the passing of the act would severely reduce the scope of the trade, and start a momentum and precedent for full abolition. He carefully played down this significance in parliament, and the bill was passed, despite resistance in the Lords from the Duke of Clarence (the future king William IV) and other peers with West Indian interests. The final debate lasted ten hours, in which Wilberforce - who had promoted abolition for 18 years - received a standing ovation, and the House voted in favour of the Bill by a remarkable 283 votes to 16, essentially making the end of the slave trade within the British Empire inevitable, as occurred within a year. The act is scarce, with OCLC … [Click Below for Full Description]

Malkin, Benjamin Heath.
1806. London: Longman, 1806. 8vo, iv, xlviii, 172 pp.With a frontispiece by Blake, engraved by Cromek, and 3 plates (one folding). Very good in original gray boards slightly darkened and worn at corners and with later spine showing wear at edges at rear. Contained in a red morocco gilt slipcase. George Goyders's copy with his bookplate. § First edition, very uncommon in original state. This is possibly a large-paper issue as it's substantially bigger than other untrimmed copies in stock. The text includes the first typographic printing of the poems "Laughing Song", "The Divine Image", "Holy Thursday", "The Tiger", and "I love the Jocund Dance". In addition, the preface has a 24-page account of Blake, being the first biographical information on him ever printed. The text of this section was largely obtained from conversations with Blake himself. The child was Malkin's son, apparently an infant prodigy who died at the age of seven. Bentley, BB, p.18 (a good note on the book) and #482.

Vincenzo Cuoco
Gio. Pietro Giegler, 1806. Rara edizione con una pianta ripiegata dell'antica Taranto all'inizio del volume II. Romanzo epistolare, scritto dal Cuoco negli anni del suo esilio, iniziato nel 1803, vide la pubblicazione dei primi due volumi nel 1804 e del terzo nel 1806. Il Platone in Italia si presenta come un romanzo epistolare che l'A. finge di aver tradotto dal greco da un manoscritto originale rinvenuto ad Eraclea nel 1774: la finzione di tale ritrovamento rappresenta quasi un topos letterario, che senz'altro influenzerà anche la scrittura manzoniana. Opera di carattere più filosofico che letterario, con un genuino intento allegorico (dietro l'elogio della supremazia pitagorica si celerebbe quello della supremazia culturale italica del Settecento rispetto alla Francia e all'Europa) , ha il suo leit motiv nel mito arcaico e dunque ancora più autentico di un'Italia "pitagorica", culla della sapienza più genuina e della scienza più valida, al fine di celebrare l'Italia come ancestrale luogo della saggezza e della sapienza, rendendo la parte magnogreca della Penisola maestra e non allieva della Grecia, come esplicita il discorso del filosofo Timeo. L'opera, dunque, racconta in forma epistolare il viaggio di Cleobolo, discepolo di Platone, che con lui visita la Magna Grecia, meravigliandosi della civiltà "italica" più antica di quella greca, perché luogo di una cultura antichissima e primigenia, dal valore comprovato nelle arti, nella scienza e nell'organizzazione politica. Alla fine del terzo volume, quattro brevi appendici: Filosofia italiana, "parti delle Italiane antichit … [Click Below for Full Description]

SMITH, Gavin
London,: Edward Stanford, 1806. London,: Edward Stanford,, 1806. Divided into Parishes and including a Plan of The Harbour of St. George. Taken from an actual Survey made by Gavin Smith in the Year 1801 under the Authority of the Legislature of the Island. 1806. Copy of an engraved chart [from 1899?], dissected and mounted on linen, marbled paper securing the folded map, Stanford publisher's label pasted to lower margin, brown slipcase with E. Stanford's label pasted on. The chart depicts the Caribbean Island of Grenada, which was a British Colony until the 1974. It depicts the partition of the land into different estates and names their owners. A note at the bottom of the map states, that these figures have been constantly updated and corrected. Furthermore, it names all bays and islands surrounding Grenada and possible anchor spots. An additional map in the top left corner focuses on the harbour of the city St. George. The harbour is circled by four forts which refer to Grenada's position as an issue between French and English colonial interests. The date of the map is unsure. The survey this map is based on was carried out in 1801; the notes concerning the ownership of the estates refer to the publication of a accompanying general list between 1806 and 1824. Finally, the edition of the present map shows, based on their outer appearance many similarities to other maps of the West Indies published by Edward Stanford 1860-1890.

PATRICK COLQUHOUN
ont> Printed for J. Hatchard : London, 1806 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A very scarce first edition copy of Patrick Colquhoun's fascinating work on the poverty and pauperism, in which he notably drew a line of distinction between poverty and 'indigence'. Patrick Colquhoun was a Scottish merchant, statistician and magistrate who was responsible for founding the first regular preventative police force in England, known as Thames River Police. Following on from the theft of an estimated £500,000 worth of stolen cargo a year from the Pool of London on the River Thames, Colquhoun, along with utilitarian philosopher Jeremy Bentham and master mariner John Harriot, founded the Thames Valley Police. The first year saved an estimated £122,000 worth of cargo and rescued several lives. His work is credit as an important precursor to the 'new' police founded by Robert Peel. Colquhoun published twenty four different treatise regarding a variety of social issues and concerns, with this work 'A Treatise on Indigence' being one of the most significant. The work details the social issues of poverty and pauperism in relation to crime, with accompanying advice and information regarding his suggested solution to each issue. The primary solution for poverty suggested by Colquhoun is that of a new system of policing, as well as plans for education, money management, work for the unemployed and more. An influential treatise written by an important figure in police reformation. Collated, with both the folding plate (page 23) and the publisher's adverts leaf provided in facsimile.

While the true first does not appear in the modern auction record, the first American appears only three times, with the most recent sale occurring over 20 years ago. Published anonymously in 1805, Jane Marcet's Conversations on Chemistry would become a cornerstone text for science education. Largely considered one of the first elementary science textbooks, Marcet's work was designed to make the complex field more accessible to women and younger readers who did not have easy access to rigorous science and mathematics training. As Marcet records in her introduction, she was inspired to author the text after facing her own struggle to understand a science lecture conducted at the Royal Institution in London; only after having friend in the field provide more conversational explanations were her imagination and interest awakened. She thus concluded that "familiar c … [Click Below for Full Description]
