        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). A beautiful copy of an interesting book. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

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.

      Abingdon, Md.: Printed by Daniel P. Ruff, 1806 - 12mo, contemporary mottled sheep, red morocco label, gilt rules and lettering. ? A substantial and accomplished collection of poems by a young lady from Fair Park, Maryland, on numerous themes: elegies to lost loved ones and friends, epistles to the poet William Hayley, to the character Clarissa, to a Miss Chamney "on her lap-dog," an ode on "General Washington's Accepting the Command of the Army in 1798," and a tantalizing poem to "Miss Jane Austen," but too early for The Jane Austen. This is Mrs. Allen's only book, which she dedicates to President Thomas Jefferson, and it has been claimed to be the earliest published book of poetry by a Maryland woman, a claim I do not doubt, but cannot substantiate.

        Cases of the Excision of Carious Joints. With Observations by James Jeffray.

      Glasgow: At the University Press 1806 - First edition thus. 12mo. (viii), 210, (2) pp. Contemporary red full roan, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered direct to one panel, marbled endpapers. 3 folding plates. Henry Park (1745-1831) was the son of a surgeon and promptly followed him into the profession. He first trained in his native Liverpool before completing his studies in London and then France. He soon returned to Liverpool and practised at the Liverpool Infirmary where he became recognised as an expert, especially so in the field of amputations. The work is divided into three sections. The first part of Park's contribution was published in 1783 under a different title, this edition with the addition of a further "case" communicated in a letter composed by him in 1789. This collected edition also provided the first English translation of Moreau's work. The volume concludes with Jeffray's observations on his contemporaries' works, addressed to the "Students of Anatomy and Surgery in the University of Glasgow". Jeffray was a professor in the subjects at the university.

        Carta Esferica del paso de los Dardanelos del Mar de Marmara y del canal que conduce al Mar Negro [with large inset] Plano de la Ciudad de Constantinopla y canal del Mar Negro o Bosforo de Tracia

      As often with Spanish-made charts, this one is extremely rare; the map can be said is divided in two: the larger portion is dedicated to mapping the region of the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea, whilst the smaller one is dedicated to the city of Constantinople (Istanbul), the channel of the Black Sea or the Thracian Bosporus. As a navigational aid the chart is terrific, as it shows the depths by soundings, and names the harbors, towns, and fortifications along the coastline. The chart was commissioned by the famed Principe de la Paz Manuel Godoy y Alvarez de Faria (1767 - 1851), Spanish nobleman and politician, given such title flowing the negotiation of Peace of Basel (1795), to the Spanish sailor and cartographer Dionisio Alcala, who can be considered one of the foremost cartographers and chart-makers of Spanish, having worked with Vicente Tofiño, Malaspina, and having been the first to chart Vancouver Island during the expedition in search of the Northwest Passage. One copy in the United States, at the University of South Carolina, one other copy located at the Biblioteca Nacional de España. According to OCLC.

      Three vols. Large & thick 8vo, orig. paste-paper wrappers, orig. printed paper labels on spines, uncut. Paris: Crapelet, 1806. First edition and a lovely fresh set in original state. Millin (1759-1818), a celebrated antiquary and prodigious author, was appointed keeper of antiquities and medals at the Bibliothèque nationale in 1795. Dissatisfied with the state of comprehensive reference books on the fine arts, Millin set out to improve upon the earlier works of Lacombe, Sulzer, and Watelet (whom he criticizes in the preface). This work is incredibly wide-ranging with tens of thousands of entries, covering not just art but archeology, music, dance, architecture, art history, restoration, technical terms, opera, etc., etc. Millin was bibliographically oriented; many references are provided. Nice set. Label of Vol. I a little defective. ❧ N.B.G., Vol. 35, cols. 537-41.

        Pastorals, Elegies, Odes, Epistles, and Other Poems.

      Abingdon, Md.: Printed by Daniel P. Ruff, 1806. 12mo, contemporary mottled sheep, red morocco label, gilt rules and lettering. ¶ A substantial and accomplished collection of poems by a young lady from Fair Park, Maryland, on numerous themes: elegies to lost loved ones and friends, epistles to the poet William Hayley, to the character Clarissa, to a Miss Chamney "on her lap-dog," an ode on "General Washington's Accepting the Command of the Army in 1798," and a tantalizing poem to "Miss Jane Austen," but too early for The Jane Austen. This is Mrs. Allen's only book, which she dedicates to President Thomas Jefferson, and it has been claimed to be the earliest published book of poetry by a Maryland woman, a claim I do not doubt, but cannot substantiate. Edges just slightly rubbed; an unusually fine copy.

        A student's manuscript of mathematical problems from A Treatise on Plane and Spherical Trigonometry.

      An elegant, substantial early-19th century manuscript containing practical mathematical and astronomical problems likely produced by a student of navigation.The majority of the text is from John Bonnycastle's A Treatise on Plane and Spherical Trigonometry, originally published in 1806. Bonnycastle was a respected mathematics teacher who tutored the children of the aristocracy and taught at the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich. A man of "considerable classical and general literary culture", he was a great friend of Fuseli and also of Leigh Hunt, who included Bonnycastle in his book Lord Byron and Some of His Contemporaries. "Bonnycastle was a prolific and successful writer of textbooks. Of his chief works, The Scholar's Guide to Arithmetic first appeared in 1780 and ran to an eighteenth edition in 1851... His Introduction to Astronomy (1786), intended as a popular introduction to astronomy rather than as an elementary treatise, was one of the best-selling books on the subject for many years... Besides elementary mathematical books, Bonnycastle was in early life a frequent contributor to the London Magazine. He also wrote the introduction to a translation (by T. O. Churchill) of Bossut's Histoire des mathématiques (1803) and a 'chronological table of the most eminent mathematicians from the earliest times' for the end of the book" (ODNB). This manuscript, titled "Bonnycastle's Trigonometry", contains the practical portions of the text, including rules for solving different types of trigonometric problems ("cases") and practice problems. The practice problems have been completed in full, including large, precise geometrical diagrams made with ruler and compass. Page numbers are given and the problems are dated, the first section having been completed on September 24th, 1813 with additions every few days until the final dated entry on March 31, 1814. The final, undated portion, about a quarter of the manuscript, comprises "Miscellaneous Astronomical Problems" from Andrew Mackay's The Theory and Practice of Finding the Longitude at Sea or Land (first published in 1793, the second edition in 1801), an important work for which its author "received the thanks of the boards of longitude of England and France" (ODNB). This manuscript's focus on mathematical rules and practice problems (at the expense of the more theoretical, text-heavy portions), together with the fact that it was updated regularly between September and March, indicates that it was produced by an advanced student working through the book as part of a regular course of study. The script is elegant, clear, and controlled throughout, and pencilled guide rules indicate that the student took great pains to ensure the manuscript was attractive and readable, suggesting that it was evaluated as part of coursework rather than used as a notebook for producing rough calculations (indeed, some rough calculations are included on sheets of scrap paper loosely inserted). Mathematics of this type, focused on spherical trigonometry, astronomy, and navigational problems, would have been of interest primarily to mariners, and it seems reasonable to conclude that the student was attending a naval or military institution, or was perhaps under private tutelage with a naval career in mind. A beautiful example of a student's efforts at practical mathematics for navigation at a time when Britain was the major power on the seas. ...as well as Andrew MacKay's The Theory and Practice of Finding the Longitude at Sea or Land. 170 page manuscript. Contemporary half speckled sheep, marbled sides. Several contemporary sheets of manuscript with mathematical notations loosely inserted. Corners repaired, a little wear and some discolouration to boards, endpapers tanned, contents with the occasional light spot but overall quite clean. Very good condition.
