        Chart of the Harbours of Salem, Marblehead, Beverly and Manchester from a Survey taken in the years 1804, 5, & 6

      [Salem, Massachusetts] 1806 - Hand-coloured engraved map, engraved by Hooker & Fairman, on laid paper watermarked "J. Whatman 1804" Minor tears in top margin repaired. Sheet size: 21 1/2 x 27 inches. An American cartographic rarity: the true first edition of Bowditch's famed chart of the coasts of Salem, Beverly, Marblehead and Manchester. Bowditch's separately-issued chart, the first accurate chart of those waters, was among the earliest nautical charts based on first-hand surveys by an American to be published in the United States. Born in Salem, Massachusetts, the son of a local cooper and shipmaster, at a young age Nathaniel Bowditch was apprenticed to a local ship chandlery. With his intelligence and mathematical skills evidenced in abundance, he was encouraged by three local Harvard-trained scholars and inventors: Nathan Read, John Prince, and William Bentley. Under their tutelage, he studied Latin, French, mathematics, natural philosophy, astronomy, navigation and he constructed his own surveying equipment. In 1794, Bowditch assisted Bentley and shipmaster John Gibaut in a land survey of Salem. Gibaut shortly thereafter appointed Bowditch as his clerk on a voyage to the East Indies. Between 1795 and 1803, Bowditch sailed to the East Indies five times, continuing his studies on chartmaking and navigation on board. By his final voyage, Bowditch served as master and part-owner of the ship. Practical sailing experience combined with his studies of astronomy made Bowditch one of the best navigators in America. In 1799, publisher and chartseller Edmund Blunt hired Bowditch to revise John Hamilton Moore's New Practical Navigator. Bowditch added much in the way of additional information to the work and contributed so much in the way of revisions, that Blunt decided to completely redo the book, publishing it in 1802 with a new title and with Bowditch listed as the author. Bowditch's American Practical Navigator would prove a fundamentally important work on the art of navigation, with scores of tables and diagrams, and a wealth of practical information, becoming known as the Seamen's Bible. Around the time of the first publication of Bowditch's Navigator, while serving as the President of the Essex Fire and Marine Insurance Company, it became evident that the existing charts of the waters around Salem and Marblehead were deficient. In a rare, separately-published 30-page text of sailing directions to accompany the present chart, Bowditch writes: "The only chart of the entrance of the harbours of Salem, Marblehead, Beverly and Manchester, is that published from the survey taken by Holland and his assistants, just before the American revolutionary war. That period was particularly unfavorable for obtaining an accurate survey of the sea-coast, as the Americans were generally opposed to its being done at that time, fearing that it would give the British the great advantage of being able safely to enter with their armed ships into any of our harbours. In consequence of this, Holland received but little assistance from our pilots, in exploring the sunken ledges and shoals off our harbours; and as it was almost impossible to discover them without such assistance, they were generally omitted by him. This deficiency renders those charts in a great degree useless, though they are accurate as respects the bearings and distances of the islands and the coast. From the time of Holland's survey, till the year 1794, nothing was towards obtaining a more accurate chart. In that year a general survey of the state was ordered by the legislature; but it is to be regretted that this survey was not directed to be made in a manner calculated to ensure accuracy in the execution of it . the laudable intentions of the legislature were very imperfectly carried into execution; and the map . was such as was to have been expected." He continues by describing his first-hand surveys to produce this chart by himself, assisted by George Burchmore & William Ropes III: "To do this an excellent t [Attributes: First Edition]

        THE NEW JAMAICA ALMANACK, AND REGISTER, FOR THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1806

      Kingston: Stevenson and Smith, 1806. 184,[16]pp. The calendar interleaved with blank, plus additional blanks in rear. 12mo. Contemporary green wallet-style morocco. Very good. Some early Jamaica almanacs, like the present, include a page showing the Jewish calendar, which "would seem to be an indication of the importance of Jewish residents in the eyes of Christian Jamaicans" (B. W. Korn, "The Haham DeCordova of Jamaica," in AMERICAN JEWISH ARCHIVES 18:2 [Nov. 1966]). These Jamaican calendars represent some of the earliest appearances of Hebrew font in the Western Hemisphere, in a publication intended specifically for Jews. Earlier works with Hebrew type, such as Judah Monis' HEBREW GRAMMAR, were intended for a Gentile audience. Beyond the calendar, this almanac is filled with information about the colony, including pages devoted to each parish with details on population (including slaves), public office holders, court sessions, etc.

        A compendious dictionary of the English language..

      Hartford: from Sidney's Press for Hudson & Goodwin, 1806. First edition of Webster's first dictionary, 12mo, pp. xxiii, [1], 408; full contemporary sheep, neatly rebacked, red morocco label; some scuffing and minor foxing, else a very good, sound copy. "It was no perfunctory abridgement of existing English works, as the few dictionaries hitherto published on this continent had been. Though it was compact, making no pretense to rival Johnson's profusion, it flung down to Johnson's and to every other existing dictionary a challenge on five important counts: spelling (which Webster would reform); pronunciation (which he would guard against capricious change); etymology (in which he effectively showed up Johnson's shortcomings); modernity; and definitions. The first three of these are dealt with in an Introduction by turns brilliant and abstruse, outlining those theories which Webster was later to develop more fully in his great Dictionary of 1828. In the body of the Compendious he included thousands of words which were in daily use but not in any other lexicon. And his definitions, though brief often to the point of synonymy, proved brilliantly his special gifts for accuracy and precision in this, the most important feature in any dictionary" (Noah's Ark, p. 24).

      A printed slip bearing vertically six hand-coloured engraved 'scenes' with text beneath, from Thomas Dibdin's pantomime, Harlequin and Mother goose; or, the Golden Egg, first performed at the Covent Garden Theatre in 1806, staring Joseph Grimaldi as the clown. No imprint or date, but probably contemporary with the pantomime, and almost certainly sold as a souvenir by a street seller. 318x 96 mm. The six engravings are captioned: 'Mother Goose brought before Squire Bugle, Colin rescues her.' [2.] 'She gives Colin the Goose which lays the golden Egg.' [3.] 'Changes Colin to Harlequin & the Squire to Clown.' [4.] 'The Clown's drollery at Vauxhall.' [5.] 'The Clowns elevation at Supper.' [6.] 'Ye Patrons kind who deign to view, The sport we'd fain produce, Accept our wish to pleasure you, And laugh at mother Goose.' The slip has seen some significant restoration, having been cut into six pieces at some point in its life and then reunited and laid down. Little ragged at edges, else very good. Rare. We have been unable to trace another copy.

        Vida de J.J. Dessalines, gefe de los negros de Santo Domingo; con notas muy circunstanciadas sobre el origen, caracter y atrocidades de los principales gefes de aquellos rebeldes desde el principio de la insurreccion en 1791

      en la oficina de Mariano de Zuniga y Ontiveros, Mexico 1806 - First Mexican edition. Small quarto. Frontispiece and nine plates engraved by Jose Ambrosi Carraro, three of which have handsome and vivid contemporary hand coloring. Contemporary marbled calf with spine gilt. Lightly rubbed boards and older private bookplate and stamps, near fine. The most important edition of this Afro-Mexicanum illustrated book. Published originally in France in 1804, then translated into Spanish and published in Spain in 1805, this title tells of the revolution in Haiti, the personalities of the leaders of the revolution, and stresses the mob violence, excesses, and atrocities. The portraits of the leaders include Dessalines, Toussaint L'Ouverture, Christobal, and Biasou, as well as depicting graphic scenes of decapitation, dismembered bodies, dead babies, and executions. Dubroca was hired by the Bonaparte regime to conduct a propaganda war against Toussaint L'Ouverture, the leader of the slave revolt at Santa Domingue, and this work is a similar vilification of his successor, Dessalines. *Exhibition of Slavery and Justice, Selected Sources from the John Carter Brown Library*, number 22 (describing this edition).

        SOUTH AFRICA – MANUSCRIPT MAP OF THE BATTLE OF BLAAUWBERG (1806): [UNTITLED MANUSCRIPT MAP OF THE TABLE BAY AREA DEPICTING THE MILITARY ACTION SURROUNDING THE BATTLE OF BLAAUWBERG (1806)].

      Manuscript, pen and ink and watercolour on woven paper (Very Good, bright original colours, crisp contemporary vertical folds), 23.5 x 36.5 cm (9 x 14.5 inches). - [Cape of Good Hope, South Africa, January 1806]. An original contemporary manuscript map of the Battle of Blaauwberg (1806), the most consequential single military event in the history of South Africa, whereby Britain conquered the Cape Colony from the Netherlands, one of only a few surviving original cartographic records of the battle, finely executed by a skilled, anonymous hand. - This historically important and finely drafted manuscript map is one of only a few surviving contemporary cartographic records of the Battle of Blaauwberg (January 8, 1806), the most important single military event in the history of South Africa, and a watershed moment in the course of the British Empire. The battle resulted in Britain’s conquest of the Cape Colony from the Netherlands; such that the Cape would remain a British possession for the next century. While the mapmaker remains anonymous, he was clearly a British participant in the battle, who, in all likelihood drafted the map to be enclosed within a letter sent to England. The style and quality of the map’s draftsmanship suggests a hand formally trained in military cartography. In July 1805, Whitehall dispatched a fleet of 60 ships, commander by Commodore Home Popham, carrying an army of 6,500 troops, under Major General David Baird, to capture the Cape Colony, which was then ruled by the Batavian Republic, the Dutch client state of Napoleon Bonaparte’s France (and Britain’s mortal nemesis). The British action was motivated by an imperative to stop Napoleon’s design to turn the Cape, the maritime gateway to the Indian Ocean, into an impregnable base form which he could sever Britain’s ties with India and the Far East. However, the British juggernaut would not arrive at the Cape until the beginning of the following year. The map, orientated eastwards, embraces all of the Table Bay area, from Lospard’s Bay (Melkbosstrand), in the north, down about 20 kilometers to the city of Cape Town, in the south, extending about 10 kilometers inland. The map presents a very careful and accurate record of the dramatic action of the battle, and related events, depicting every feature relevant to military operations, including the locations of maritime landings sites, roads, farmsteads, rivers and points of elevation, as well as Cape Town’s numerous defensive works.

This miniature almanac includes calendar tables for the year 1806 and a list of eclipses, as well as twelve short educational poems. Each of the rhyming poems, consisting of three stanzas of eight lines each, seeks to instruct innocent growing children on how to behave as they enter adolescence. The calendar is bound, as usual, around the main text, with January through May before and June through December after. Bondy comments on a group of French almanacs, of which this title is a part: "Of particular rarity are some of the slightly larger volumes... published between 1790 and 1814 by Jubert, Janet, Marcilly or Le Fuel in Paris. They all have engraved titles and most of them contain twelve full-page plates executed with the greatest care and delicacy, representing elegant scenes of contemporary life.... Collectors who succeed in finding any of these magnificent almanacs all of which are now exceedingly rare, must deem themselves very fortunate." Handsomely bound in gilt-tooled red morocco, and housed in a matching slipcase lined in light blue silk. A.e.g. Light wear and some oxidation to the gilt edges, else a fine copy of an "exceedingly rare" item. (Bondy, pp. 48-50). (2 5/8 by 1 3/4; 67x45mm).

Hunter & Macalpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry (1963) 467-71: "Arnold was one of the famous provincial psychiatrists of the second half of the eighteenth century who owned a large private madhouse - juding from the number of patients admitted the third largest in the country - and acted as psychiatric consultant for a wide area. Like many owners of private asylums he took in a number of pauper lunatics at the charge of their parish but in adidition offered to receive 'into the lower department of his house in the Bond-Street, in Leciester, on the reduced terms of eight shillings per week' ten lunatics from families in distressed circumstances but 'unwiling to apply for the aid of a parish', and over and above these 'Two others free of all expense whatever. By this 'generous and patriotic institution' his private madhouse became truly a 'Hospital for Lunatics' until the Leicester Lunatic Asylum project built at his instigation in 1781 was opened in 1794 in the grounds of the Infirmary with him as its first physician."Unlike Perfect (1797) who aimed at no more than prseenting a variety of cases to illustrate his cures, and Pargeter (1792) who set out to show the possibility of management by the direct human approach, Arnold wrote a much more ambitious and systematic treatise, really a textbook. It was the first two-volume work on psychiatry in this country [England] and modern also for the point Arnold made of giving accurate references for all his quotations having himself 'frequently experienced much inconvenience; often a great waste, and sometimes a total loss, both of time, and labour; by a loose and negligent mode of reference from one author to another'. Volume I was devoted to classification with a chapter on post mortem appearances; volume II dealt with the causes of insanity. A third volume on treatment to which I and II were preparatory appeared independently. . . . ": [Attributes: Hard Cover]

An important scientific paper which relates to Flinder's observations on the relationship between atmospheric pressure with regard to variation and deviation of navigation by magnetic compass. In this article, Flinders uses the term Australia for the first time in a scientific context to reference the island continent. In 1814 his atlas would include the first map of the continent entitled Australia. The term Australia had been used previously to reference an undefined southern landmass however it was Flinders who would advocate this term as the agreed name for the continent. The matter of naming the continent was one contested with Sir Joseph Banks, who favoured Terra Australis, however eventually, Flinders' Australia would eventually prevail.
