        Rare full-figure black ink silhouette of President Lincoln, probably executed from life, on verso of an early Hardin County, Kentucky, document with association to one of Lincoln?s boyhood friends

      Full-figure silhouette of a bearded President Abraham Lincoln, left hand appearing to be in his jacket pocket, facing left. Drawn on the verso of an 8? x 13? sheet of laid watermarked paper bearing an 1806 Elizabeth Town, Hardin County, Kentucky legal document signed by Abisha Ashcraft. Folds. Tear in upper left blank edge. Edges slightly frayed. Light soiling, mostly on document side with light show-through at Lincoln?s left foot. Overall, in fine condition.

Benjamin Wright?s Regiment, Kentucky Militia, in the War of 1812. Benjamin Shacklet, one of the names in this document, was married to Abisha?s sister, Elizabeth. Abner Ashcraft, also mentioned, was Abisha?s brother. While the silhouette is not dated, it is possible that it was drawn from life since it is recorded that a number of Kentuckians visited Lincoln in the White House and it is possible tha

        A CONVENTION BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES, AND THE CHEROKEE NATION OF INDIANS, CONCLUDED AT THE CITY OF WASHINGTON, ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF JANUARY, 1806

      Washington: Duane & Son, Printers, 1806.. 7pp. Printed self-wrappers. Dampstain in upper margin near fold, affecting all leaves but no text; small closed tear in lower margin of first leaf. Else near fine, unopened and untrimmed. In a half morocco box. The very rare first printing of a critical treaty between the U.S. and the Cherokees, made at Washington by a delegation of Cherokee chiefs from the Cherokee Lower Towns and the government, signed in print by Secretary of War Henry Dearborn and Chief Doublehead. The treaty is an important step in stripping the Cherokees of most of the lands which had been guaranteed to them by the United States in earlier treaties, handing over to the government all of the Cherokee hunting grounds in the state of Tennessee and Alabama (the latter area including some land disputed with the Chickasaws. Because of this the treaty also promises that the U.S. will prevent conflicts regarding the new boundaries with the neighboring Chickasaws). The treaty was arrived at by duplicitous means on the part of the U.S. agent, Return J. Meigs, and the government. The principal chiefs of the Cherokee Lower Towns, led by Doublehead, were bribed with money, grants of property which they could take over, and grants of land made personally to the chiefs who arranged the treaty. The treaty was so unpopular with the Cherokees that it led to a revolution within the tribe, and Doublehead was assassinated the following year as a direct result. However, it was too late and the Cherokees had lost their hunting grounds. The true first printings of virtually all of the Indian treaties prior to 1820 (as opposed to later appearances in the U.S. law volumes), are notoriously scarce. SABIN 96628. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 11549.

        Observations on the Present State of the Highlands of Scotland, With a View of the Causes and Probable Consequences of Emigration

      A. Constable And Co. Edinburgh; and Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, London, Edinburgh 1806 - Boards in full calf, top and bottom boards with decorative scroll borders and edges stamped in blind, six compartment spine - five with flower motif in blind and one with title tooled in gilt onto green printed label, 8vo (8-1/4 x 5-1/8 inches [20.9 cm x 13 cm]), pp. [i]-vii, [viii], [1]- 232, [i]-lxi, all edges trimmed, sewn headbands. "SECOND EDITION" stated on copyright page, still tightly bound and with text fine. With the armorial bookplate of Ingestre Hall to the front pastedown, being of "The Most Noble Order of the Garter" - founded in 1348 and the highest order of knighthood existing in England - showing their motto "HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE". (Old French: "shame upon him who thinks evil upon it", or "evil to him who evil thinks it") in scroll. Light rubbing and wear to binding, top joint and hinge completely cracked, rear joint and hinge started, top corners with board tips exposed, uniform spotting and dusting to text edges, a few leaves and endpapers with light age tone. Published under the influential imprint of Archibald Constable at Edinburgh, this less common second and revised edition came out in the summer of 1806. Here Selkirk puts forth his reasons for the dispossessed people of the Highlands to emigrate from Scotland to Canada, as well as giving an account of the colony for Scottish emigrants he established at P.E.I. in 1803. He eventually received a land grant of 300,000 square kilometers, called Assiniboia, in June of 1811. The battles that followed were protracted and bloody and led to the end of the North West Company and ruined Lord Selkirk - with the Red River settlement barely surviving to become what is now Winnipeg. Penciled name to ffep, "Talbot family" of Ingestre Hall, a 17th century Jacobean mansion at Staffordshire, England, housing one of the ruling elite families of the time, who surely read this very book in making their decision on whether or not to support Selkirk's emigration plans.

Chalmers, and Others. To Which are Added Now for the First Time Published Some Original Letters with Additional Observations, and Memoirs of the Life of the Author [Ten Volumes Complete]

      Printed for J. Johnson, London [and others] First Edition . Ten Volumes. London 1806. - Contemporary polished tree calf bindings, twin gilt letter labels between four raised bands to the spines, gilt perimeter line to upper and lower boards, marble page edges and end papers. 8vo 9½'' x 6''. Twenty two paper guarded single-sided monochrome illustrations to the beginning of volume I. Pope was a London born poet, satirist, and translator of Homer. Bowles laid down certain canons as to poetic imagery which, subject to some modification, were later accepted, but were received at the time with strong opposition by admirers of Pope and his style. The controversy brought into sharp contrast the opposing views of poetry, which may be roughly described as the artificial and the natural. Bowles maintained that images drawn from nature are poetically finer than those drawn from art; and that in the highest kinds of poetry the themes or passions handled should be of the general or elemental kind, and not the transient manners of any society. The odd mark to the edges of a couple of volumes, light tanning to the paper with sporadic foxing to the end papers, hinges firm and tight, fading of the red Morocco titles labels to the spines, a handsome and scarce set.

The recipient was almost certainly British surgeon Astley Cooper, who at the time this letter was written was in the midst of preparing the second volume of his classic work on the surgical treatment of hernia, published in 1807 (see Garrison-Morton 3581). William Fergusson, in his "Lectures on the progress of surgery during the present century" (Medical Times and Gazette 1 [June 11, 1864]: 635-38), noted that "when Astley Cooper was engaged in his great and interesting labours on hernia nothing would satisfy him but a sight of the fact that the obdurator artery might encircle the inner side of the neck of a crural hernia. The first preparation that gave this proof was in the museum of the famous professor of anatomy in Edinburgh, John Barclay (now incorporated in the collection of the Royal College of Surgeons in that city), who actually forwarded it to London to satisfy the hesitation of the great surgeon. It was returned with complimentary thanks, and this anatomical fact, now familiar to the simplest novice, was soon after made extensively known to the professional world" (p. 636).Barclay's letter reads in part as follows:"I shall this evening write to my friend Dr. Hamilton Professor of midwifery who I am persuaded will not refuse to communicate any information that he has on the species of hernia to which you allude. As for the hernia which I met with and of which you have a drawing I am sorry to say that I met with it for the first time in the class and know nothing whatever of its previous history. The subject in which I found it was a female and apparently above 40 years of age. I am glad to learn that your drawing is by Mr. Stewart and that your engraving is to be executed by Mr. Heath for believe me I am much interested in any thing that either adds to the value or ornament of your work and I hope that both your profession and your country will be grateful for it . . ."Dr. Hamilton" refers to Alexander Hamilton (1739-1802), professor of midwifery at Edinburgh University and author of several works on obstetrics and gynecology. The engraver Barclay mentioned was James Heath (1757-1834); the artist is less easy to identify, but could have been Anthony Stewart (1773-1846). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Édition originale et seule édition française parue au XIXe siècle, devenue très rare. L'auteur montre de façon statistique l'étendue de la variole dans les différentes classes de population et surtout l'effet de la vaccination contre la variole sur le taux de mortalité et l'espérance de vie. L'ouvrage comporte la table de mortalité qui fut employée par les compagnies d'assurances sur la vie. Emmanuel Etienne DUVILLARD (de Durand) (1755-1832), né à Genève, fut employé dans l'administration des finances à Paris, puis fut chargé du travail de la statistique de la population au ministère de l'Intérieur. Il fut membre correspondant de l'Institut. Garrison & Morton, 1695 : "Duvillard showed statistically the effect of smallpox vaccination on the mortality rate"; Westergaard, Contributions to the history of statistics, pp. 94-95 : "It was not his principal aim to calculate a life-table but only to obtain means for a comparison of the effects of vaccination, and in this respect it would probably serve fairly well. Unfortunately, several authors who afterwards criticized Duvillard have only had this table in view, without thinking of the problem under discussion. As stated his books is, on the whole, very little known, and only very few copies seems to be preserved."; R.Pressat : "essai célèbre . qui se présente comme la première anticipation scientifique en matière de mortalité."

        Vaso anticho di marmo adornato di eccellenti sculture.

      Paris - This print was published between 1806-1833. Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etchings.

Barrow accompanied Lord Macartney, as private secretary, on his mission to the Cape of Good Hope in 1797, being promoted to auditor general in 1798. "Macartney at once sent him on a double mission, viz. to reconcile the Kaffirs and Boers, and to obtain more accurate topographical knowledge of the colony, there being then no map which embraced one-tenth of it. In pursuit of these objects he traversed every part of the colony, and visited the several countries of the Kaffirs, Hottentots, and the Bosjesmen, performing 'a journey exceeding one thousand miles on horseback, on foot, and very rarely in a covered wagon, and full half the distance as a pedestrian, and never except for a few nights sleeping under a roof'. He owed his appointment [as second secretary of the Admiralty] mainly to the ability he had shown at the Cape and in his history of the colony, with its unrivalled map" (DNB). Barrow was elected to the Royal Society in 1805, and was one of the founders of the Royal Geographical Society. His accounts "established new standards for travel writing" and through his friendship with John Murray he "secured the publication of a succession of travellers' accounts which generated the great public interest in exploration."
