        The Itinerary of Archbishop Baldwin through Wales, A.D. MCLXXXVIII, Translated into English, and Illustrated with Views, Annotations, and a Life of Giraldus, by Sir Richard Colt Hoare, Bart

      London: William Miller, 1806. London: William Miller. Fine with no dust jacket. 1806. First English Edition. First Printing. Leather. Beautifully bound by Starr Bookworks in full black leather, spines in six compartments separated by raised bands, gilt lettering on red labels in two compartments, decorative gilt tooling in remainder, gilt tooling and borders on covers. Illustrated with 59 tissue-protected engraved plates and two hand-colored fold-out maps. (xiv), cxci, 220, (4); (viii), 440, (i), (4) pp. Gerald of Wales (c. 1146 – c. 1223), also known as Gerallt Gymro in Welsh or Giraldus Cambrensis in Latin, archdeacon of Brecon, was a medieval clergyman and chronicler of his times. Born c. 1146 at Manorbier Castle in Pembrokeshire, Wales, he was of mixed Norman and Welsh descent; he is also known as Gerald de Barri. Gerald became a royal clerk and chaplain to King Henry II of England in 1184, first acting mediator between the crown and Prince Rhys ap Gruffydd. He was chosen to accompany one of the king's sons, John, in 1185 on John's first expedition to Ireland. This was the catalyst for his literary career; his work Topographia Hibernica (1188) is an account of his journey to Ireland. He followed it up with an account of Henry's conquest of Ireland, the Expugnatio Hibernica. Gerald was proud to be related to some of the Norman invaders of Ireland, and his influential account, which portrays the Irish as barbaric savages, gives important insight into Anglo-Norman views of Ireland and the history of the invasion. Gerald was selected to accompany the Archbishop of Canterbury, Baldwin of Forde, on a tour of Wales in 1188, the object being a recruitment campaign for the Third Crusade. His account of that journey, the Itinerarium Cambriae (1191) was followed by the Descriptio Cambriae in 1194. His two works on Wales remain incredibly valuable historical documents, significant for their descriptions of Welsh and Norman culture.. A beautiful copy, sumptiously bound and wonderfully preserved. The text block, engravings and fold-out maps are in virtually perfect condition, with only the slightest occasional foxing. The binding, by the Starr Bookworks, is in pristine condition. FINE. . Engravings and Maps. 4to 11" - 13" tall .

He also contributed a number of works to journals of the day. He wrote for Tory periodicals, usually under the name of Captain Hercules Vinegar.

        Relation De La Bataille De Marengo : Gagnee Le 25 Prairial an 8, Par Napoleon Bonaparte, Premier Consul, Commandant En Personne L'armee Francais De Reserve, Sur Les Autrichiens, Aux Ordres Du Lieutenant-General Melas

      Paris : Imprimerie imperiale, 1806-01-01. Paris : Imprimerie imperiale, 1806-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to. 40 p. : ill., 5 folding maps, hand colored & folding view of the battle. Bound in contemporary brown morocco leather. Gilt lettering on spine. Gilt seal of Napoleon on front cover. AEG. Original red satin end pages. Hinges strengthened and leather restored. Minimal wear to extremities. Engraved plate of Napoleon and dedication. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal tanning. Light foxing throughout. No tears on plates. BMC 2:1140.349; Brunet I, 817. <br><br> Marshal Berthier was Napoleon&#39;s Chief of Staff from the start of his first Italian campaign in 1796 until his first abdication in 1814. The operational efficiency of the Grande Armee owed much to his considerable administrative and organizational skills. <br><br> The Battle of Marengo was fought on 14 June 1800 between French forces under Napoleon Bonaparte and Austrian forces near the city of Alessandria, in Piedmont, Italy. The French overcame General Michael von Melas&#39;s surprise attack near the end of the day, driving the Austrians out of Italy, and enhancing Napoleon&#39;s political position in Paris as First Consul of France in the wake of his coup detat the previous November. <br><br> This particular book was a was part of a propaganda campaign so Napoleon could ensure that his victory would not be forgotten. It attempts to justify the retreat maneuver and to present it as a highly strategic calculation was Berthier&#39;s Relation de la bataille de Marengo, published in 1804. Berthier suggests that time had to be given to Desaix and Boudet&#39;s division to occupy their positions: The enemy general misinterpreted this maneuver and thought the army was in full retreat, while in reality it was only executing a movement of conversion. However it is known that Desaix&#39;s arrival, while definitely expected, was not certain before the retreat. The bulletin explains that Desaix&#39;s forces were waiting in reserve with artillery pieces, which in reality was false, because they arrived late in the battle. Several participants to the fighting reveal the precarious condition of the army throughout the day, including Marmont in his Memoirs, Captain Coignet: We were retreating in good order but all ready to start running at the earliest sign of danger, Captain Gervais: In this battle, we were many times on the verge of being defeated. The enemy cavalry, on a terrain favourable to this arm, charged us repeatedly. We were often obliged to concentrate and even to retreat, and General Thevenet: There is no doubt that a part of the French army was repelled up to the Scrivia.

      , 1806. 1806. Early Nineteenth-Century Manuscript Account Book of Pennsylvania Lawyers [Manuscript]. [Barnard, James (1755-1806)]. [Barnard, Isaac D. (1791-1834)]. [Barnard, Thomas D. (1793-1873)]. [Acct. of Money Recd. for the Estate of James Barnard, Esq. Decd. in the Office, Etc.][And][Acct. of Money Recd. by Isaac D. Barnard Belonging to His Late Father&#39;s Estate]. Chester, PA, February, 26 1806-August 22, 1845. Content in fine hand filling 23 pp. followed by several blank leaves, final six excised. Oblong octavo (8" x 5-/2"). Stiff marbled sewn wrappers. Moderate rubbing to exterior, some wear to spine and corners, light toning to interior. * James Barnard of Chester, Pennsylvania, was married to Susannah Dutton. James served as sheriff, registrar, recorder, prothonotary and clerk of the courts in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The Barnards had eight children. The eldest son, James Day Barnard, a lawyer, died at 25, a few months after his father&#39;s death. Upon his father and brother&#39;s death, the eldest surviving male Barnard, Isaac, received, or perhaps he personally recorded, his brother&#39;s outstanding legal fees and his father&#39;s estate assets and accounts recorded in this manuscript notebook. Like his deceased elder brother, Isaac studied law and was admitted to the Pennsylvania bar in 1816, after notable service as a major in the War of 1812. He served terms in the Pennsylvania State Senate and U.S. Senate. The accounts are notable as the first segment records all of the monies collected for various legal work performed by Isaac&#39;s older brother, James, from recording judgments, estate administration, vendue matters, for certificates for naturalization of citizenship, or for fees earned for specific cases (Gibbons v. Riley, Miles v. Adams, McElroy v. Hibbard, etc.). These accounts span 1806-1807 and suggest that the fees within must have been collected posthumously by Isaac for services performed before his brother&#39;s death. The notebook&#39;s second segment records moneys earned by the father in office, primarily for recording deeds. Again, the chronology suggests a similar scenario as the notebook&#39;s first segment. There are also several leaves of entries with much later dates recording monies received by Thomas Barnard. All accounts are clearly legible and amounts of fee

        Contemporary Manuscript Narrative of his last days.

      Philadelphia: December 24th 1806 - manuscript in ink on paper, frayed at the edges, and a few tears repaired, pp. 17, 4to, stitched in paper wrappers (text extending onto inside lower wrapper), sound Written just four days after Crotch&#146;s untimely end by suicide. The writer does not identify himself, but he is writing from firsthand experience. He defends Crotch first against the charge that he was &#145;addicted to the vice of intemperance&#146;, and secondly by insisting that his suicide did not invalidate all his previous good works. Indeed it was the imputation of drunkenness which led to the severe depression which led to the fatal act. We learn at the beginning that when Crotch arrived in America in 1804 he &#145;was in a low state of mind&#146; already. He improved when he got to Philadelphia, but seems to have upset some by his zeal, so that when he ventured forth again to New England, rumours began. The writer explains Crotch&#146;s memory lapses as the result of overwork. Crotch was born in Needham, Suffolk, around 1770. He became attracted to Quakerism as a lad, and took up religious visiting, and developed a reputation as a &#145;seer.&#146; We do not know what induced him to go to America.
