        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 theodolite, made by Adams, furnished with a telescope and cross wires, was procured to measure the angles and a Rood chain to measure the distances. With these instruments, the bearings and distances of the shore from Gales point in Manchester, to Phillips point in Lynn (the two extremities of this survey) were carefully ascertained; and the necessary observations were taken for fixing with accuracy the situation of the islands. Soundings were taken throughout the whole extent of the survey, particularly round the dangerous ledges and shoals, several of which were explored, that were hardly known by our best pilots ... most of which were so little known, that names had not been given to them; and during the whole time employed on the survey, which was above eighty days, from two to five persons were hired to assist in sounding and measuring. From these observations the new chart was plotted off, and an accurate engraving of it made, &c."Bowditch's original copperplate has survived and is located in the Peabody Essex Museum. Its survival, however, has resulted in later restrikes, as early as a second edition in 1834 (with additions by Charles M. Endicott listed in seven lines of text below the compass rose) but including others into the 20th century. However, the present first edition of the chart, without the Endicott additions and on paper watermarked 1804, is extremely rare. We find no other examples of the first edition chart on the market, and with only three institutional holdings (Boston Athenaeum, Boston Public Library and Harvard).Guthorn, United States Coastal Charts, p.34 (1834 edition); Garver, Surveying the Shore, p.51.

        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.

        Bélisaire [.] Dédié a Son Excellence, Monseigneur Charles Maurice Talleyrand, Ministre des Relations Extéreures. Par son très humble serviteur, Auguste Boucher Desnoyers.

      Imprimé par Rambo. Se trouve à Paris chez l’Auteur, Rue du Coeur Volant No 7. Paris, Rambo, 1806. - Talleyrand celebrated as a discerning patron & art collector. F.Gérard Pinx[i]t Aug[us]te Desnoyers Sculp[si]t 1806 Copper engraving: 545 x 400 mm (plate mark); overall size : 605 x 438mm. Untrimmed. Auguste Desnoyers’ splendid engraving of Gérard’s celebrated painting of the victorious Byzantine general Belisarius reduced to beggary by his ungrateful master Justinian consolidated his reputation as an exceptional artist. Gérard’s portrait, painted in 18 days in 1795 and exhibited in the same year, had been a sensational success, but in 1806 it mysteriously disappeared from the Galerie du Prince Eugène in Munich. This re-creation of the lost painting dedicated to Talleyrand, the illustrious patron of both artists, is now the sole surviving historical source for the painting once owned by the Beauharnais family. The evocative engraving represents what is also probably the sole public testimony to Talleyrand, as a noted art collector, who had first commissioned Gérard to paint his portrait in 1806, and subsequently asked Desnoyers to produce an engraving of it. Talleyrand thought very highly of his engraved portrait by Desnoyers and is known to have presented it to favoured guests. A very fine impression, in an untrimmed, fresh state. A reproduction of this print in Paris at the Bibliothèque Nationale, Estampes, is illustrated by J.F. Heim, C. Béraud et P. Heim, Les Salons de Peinture de la Révolution française, 1789-1799, Paris, 1989, p. 222.

        The life and pontificate of leo the tenth

      London: Printed by J. M'Creery, for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1806. In six volumes. With half-titles and an engraved frontispiece to Vol. I. Contemporary gilt-tooled calf. Slight rubbing, some surface loss to boards. Marbled endpapers, internally clean and crisp. A revised edition of Roscoe's life of Pope Leo X, first printed in 1805. Though the work did not win the same critical approval as his life of Lorenzo de' Medici (1795) it nevertheless ran to six editions, finding a broad readership throughout Europe and the Americas; indeed even the inclusion of the Italian translation in the Index Librorum Prohibitorum did not halt it's circulation within the Papal States. . Second edition, corrected. 8vo.

        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 Father’s Memoirs of His Child.

      London: printed for Longman; by T. Bensley, 1806. 8vo, iv, xlviii, 172 pp. With a frontispiece by Blake engraved by Cromek, and three plates (one folding). Original boards, a superb large-paper uncut copy with the original printed label still present. First edition, very uncommon in original state especially the large-paper issue. 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 23-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, Blake Books, p. 18 (a good note on the book) and #482.

        MOTHER GOOSE or THE GOLDEN EGG. Pr. 1s.

      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.

        NOVA CASTRO. TRAGEDIA.

      - LISBOA. Na Nova Impressão de M. J. Barros. Impressa à sua custa. ANNO 1806. Com licença da Real Meza do Desembargo do Paço. In 8º de 15,6x10 cm. com 112 págs. Encadernação da época, inteira de pele, cansada e com ligeira perda de pele no canto inferior direito da pasta anterior. Exemplar com defeitos nos cantos inferiores das primeiras e últimas folhas e assinatura de posse rasurada na folha de rosto. Muito valorizado por ter nomes de actores, manuscritos em letra coeva, à frente das personagens, na página 3 e uma lista de outro elenco mais recente a lápis na folha de guarda posterior. Raríssima 1ª edição, Inocêncio nunca viu nenhum exemplar e não está registadas nos principais catálogos de livreiros e leilões. Tragédia em verso sobre a célebre história de Inês de Castro, que foi muito popular durante o Século XIX e grande parte do Século XX, obtendo muitas edições e sendo muito admirada por Garret. Foi escrita em 1798 e obteve um prémio da Academia das Ciências em 1799. Obra inovadora que se enquadra já na transição para a literatura romântica, com ambiente terrífico e um estilo mais violento que as anteriores peças de teatro, usando com frequência de imagens assustadoras e sangrentas e apresentando a morte de Inês em cena. Traduzida para francês, por Ferdinand Denis, em 1823 e para alemão por Alexandre Wittich, em 1844. Actualmente tem sido estudada também sob a perspectiva dos estudos feministas. João Baptista Gomes, júnior (Porto ? - 1803) A Porbase regista apenas um exemplar na BNP. Inocêncio. III, 305-306 e X,174. Location/localizacao: 3-A4-D-56
