         Report of Proceedings at the Lord Mayor's Court, on Wednesday the 11th November 1803, relative to a girl found dressed in sailors clothes in the vicinage of Bishopsgate Street the preceding morning.

      1807 118 lines on five sides of two folded folio sheets, watermarked 1803; old folds.The extraordinary account of Marianne Rebecca Johnson, alias William Johnson, who was discovered in a state of destitution on the streets of London in November 1807. Discovered in great distress by a compassionate bricklayer, the young sailor was taken to a nearby public house, the Bull's Head, whereupon Marianne fainted: 'On opening his neckerchief and bosom to give air and free circulation for aiding his recovery the true sex was discovered. The hostess immediately rendered every aid and comfort in her power, took her into a private room, interrogated her as to the cause of her assuming such an appearance, when the poor girl disclosed her perverse fortunes ...' Abducted by her abusive stepfather, Marianne was forced to don sailor's dress and bound to an apprenticeship with a Collier from Sunderland. She had also lately learned that her stepfather had disposed of her mother in a similar fashion, dispatching her by force on to a man of war on which she served seven years on board before she was mortally wounded in the attack on Copenhagan in August 1807. 'She preferred under a concealment of her sex to brave all the dangers and hardships of a naval life, rather than by disclosing herself to risk a transmittal to Whitby and again meet her unnatural monster of a husband' whose acts against wife and child 'would be infamous amongst even the savage slave drovers of Africa'. This report is full of compassion for the young girl who, despite all that she had experienced in her 'uncouth floating boarding school' was a 'well turned person, middle sized, her chest and shoulders obviously enlarged by the laborious exertions of her rough avocation, her eyes black and countenance intelligent, and marked by an air of civilized modesty and submissiveness'. Marianne was taken under the protection of the Lord Mayor with the intention of passing her to the Parish as a pauper. 'But surely such a daughter deserves a better destiny than the association of profligates and beggars in a parish work house'. This folded document is inscribed on the verso 'to be returned' and is accompanied by a contemporary wax sealed docket title: 'female sailor. Wm. Johnson. Revd. D. Clarke'.

         The New and Fashionable Game of the Jew.

      J. Wallis. 1807 Hand-coloured engraved game in 12 compartments, backed on linen. 48 x 40cm. A v.g. bright copy in the orig. grey paper slip-case, hand-coloured engr. paper label; sl. rubbed with one small tear.Not in BL; Copac records one copy at the V&A only; six copies on OCLC. F.R.B. Whitehouse, The Games in Georgian and Victorian Days, 1971, p.62. At the centre of the 'board' is a hand-coloured illustration of a Jewish man sitting at a table counting money. Eight of the remaining nine compartments are numbered 2 to 10 (the central illustration being number 7) with the remaining compartment engraved with 'Directions for Playing the New Game of the Jew'. The imprint on the game is dated May 27th 1807; the paper label is dated June 16, 1807. Played with dice or a totem, each player 'must be provided with two dozen counters which they may value as they please'. Seven of the 24 must be placed on 'the Jew' prior to the game after which players take it in turns to roll the dice or spin the totem. Players rolling seven have to forgo their counters to 'the Jew'; any player rolling 12 clears the board. In The Jews of Georgian England Todd Endelman writes that there was a 'demise of demonological anti-Semitism between 1714 and 1830. 'Much of the ardor that had been invested in theological anti-Semitism was rechanelled in the eighteenth century into secular versions of anti Jewish hostility. The Jews still functioned as objects of hatred ... but this hatred was now expressed in a form more appropriate to an increasingly secular society'. Endelman also notes that the poet Robert Southey, in the same year that this game was published, observed boys from a public school running from chapel singing: 'He is risen, he is risen, All the Jews must go to prison'.

         REPORTS OF CASES RULED AND ADJUDGED IN THE COURTS OF PENNSYLVANIA, BEFORE AND SINCE THE REVOLUTION

      Philadelphia, 1807. Four volumes. x,[2],494,xxiv,[1]; [2],iv,480,xix; [8],519,[1],xiii; [6],472,xxxiv,[14]pp. Half morocco and cloth. Old institutional ink stamps on titlepages. Contemporary ownership inscriptions on titlepages of volumes one and three. Minor repairs to a few leaves. Leaves of volume four interleaved with acid free paper. Light tanning and an occasional fox mark in first three volumes, volume four more heavily browned and foxed. A very good set overall. The first published reports of the United States Supreme Court, covering the cases which appeared before the Court from its inception in 1790 through 1800, and covering the chief justiceships of John Jay and Oliver Ellsworth. The first volume is made up entirely of cases in Pennsylvania before the establishment of the Supreme Court, while the other three volumes contain the Supreme Court cases, of which are all first editions. The period for which cases are covered ends with the seat of government's move to Washington and John Marshall's assuming the chief justiceship (the succeeding series of reports, by William Cranch, takes up where Dallas leaves off). Alexander Dallas was born in Jamaica and came to the U.S. as a young lawyer in 1783. He quickly rose to prominence as an attorney, writer, Secretary of Pennsylvania, district attorney under Jefferson, and Secretary of the Treasury under Madison. As one of the chief lawyers arguing before the Supreme Court, he decided to collect and report its cases as well as those of Pennsylvania courts. The first volume, originally published in 1790 (here in the second edition of 1806), collects important cases from before the Federal period. The second volume, issued in 1798, includes the very first Supreme Court cases on pages 399-480. Much of this is concerned with the first great constitutional case, Chisholm vs. Georgia, which contested the right of a citizen of one state to sue a citizen of another, and which greatly expanded the federal power over states by determining that such a right existed. The third volume, published in 1799, is almost entirely (the first 466 pages) devoted to the Supreme Court from 1794 to 1799. Herein is a series of landmark constitutional cases, including Georgia vs. Brailsford (1794); Glass vs. Sloop Betsy, which tested the constitutionality of the Neutrality (1794); Penhallow vs. Doane's Administrators (1795); and perhaps most importantly, Hylton vs. U.S., the first case in which the Court exercised its constitutional right of passing on the constitutionality of a law made by Congress. The fourth volume contains only a short segment (pages 12-46) covering cases in 1800. By the time this was published, Dallas was too absorbed in his work as district attorney and no longer in the city where the Court sat, and he had surrendered the role of being its reporter to William Cranch, who published the first of his series of reports on Marshall's court in 1804. A landmark series of reports, the first of the United States, tracing the first decade of the Supreme Court and containing decisions of the greatest importance. DAB V, pp.36-38.

      Printed for the Society by William Savage, Bedford Bury, and Sold by J. Hatchard, Piccadilly, and B. White, Fleet Street, London, 1807-30. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Founded in London in 1804, the Horticultural Society of London which in time became the Royal Horticultural Society (1861), by John Wedgwood, the son of Josiah Wedgwood, and Sir Joseph Banks, the aim was to allow regular meetings where members could present papers on their horticultural activities and discoveries. The Transactions, the society's journal of record, contains works by T.A.Knight, George Lindlay, James Barnet, Robert Thompson and many other writers upon subjects as diverse as fruit and vegetable cultivation, greenhouse design, plant propagation, and illustrated throughout with many plain engravings (the colour plates are not present here). All seven volumes finely bound by Hering, 9 Newman Street, London, with his ticket on an inside front free endpaper in the first volume. Green coloured straight grained morocco, with the spine in gilt compartments, and gilt lettered titles. Boards with four rules in gilt, with corner pieces of gilt acorns. Edges of boards with twin straight rules. Inner edges with three straight rules. Sewn silk bookmarks. All edges gilt. Some minor imperfections in the form of slight rubbing at extremities generally. All joints inside and outside very sound, with no cracking or loose boards. A couple of pages loose or pulled. Engraved title pages are spotted and there is some foxing to the contents here and there, but nothing alarming or detracting from the overall beauty of the set. In total, over 3500 pages of papers reported by Society members, with 62 plates present. The bookplate of John Charles Pratt, the Earl of Brecknock and (2nd) Marquess of Camden is present to front pastedown of the first six volumes.

As the 'Directions to the Binder' remark in volume 1 'The coloured Plates of this work being finished in a style of superior excellence, the Members of the Horticultural Society, and Purchasers, are recommended not to bind them up, but keep them for reference in a portfolio'.

         Voyage de découvertes aux terres Australes. Exécuté par ordre de sa Majesté l'Empereur et Roi, sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goélette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804.

      Rare set of the regular account of the Baudin expedition to the Terres Australes, the text volumes in publisher's wrappers, with the plates presented in both coloured and uncoloured states. One of the most important and famous descriptions of Australia ever published, it also contains the first published complete and fully detailed map of Australia, Freycinet's Carte générale de la Nouvelle Hollande, along with many significant charts of the southern Australian coastline ("Terre Napoléon"), superb ethnographical and natural history plates by Nicolas-Martin Petit, and a magnificent topographical view of Sydney by Charles Alexandre Lesueur.  Paris : De L'Imprimerie Impériale, 1807 - 1816 - 1807 - 1811.  Four volumes, quarto (in two sizes) of the Partie Historique of the Baudin expedition, complete in itself (the Partie Navigation et Geographie was published separately). The two quarto volumes that comprise the narrative text are in the publisher's original pink paper wrappers with paper labels to spines (slightly faded) and the two small folio volumes that comprise the historical atlas (Historique Atlas) are bound in uniform modern papered boards (joints slightly cracked); housed in two fine quarter-morocco clamshell boxes, the spines in compartments. Historique (text). Part 1, 1807. Quarto, pp [iv half-title; title], xv, 496, [v errata; contents]; Part 2, 1816. Quarto, pp xxxii, 471, frontispiece portrait of Péron by Lambert after Lesueur engraved by Langlois; two folding tables; slight water stain to the margins of last few leaves. Historique Atlas. Part 1, 1807. Small folio, pp [ii], 40 plates (two folding, 23 coloured and also present duplicated in uncoloured state); Part 2, 1811. Small folio, pp [3], 14 charts (two double-page, including the first complete map of Australia). A fine and desirable set of the complete regular publication of the Baudin expedition; the natural history, topographical and ethnographic plates present in both coloured and uncoloured states, and the text volumes in crisp publisher's wrappers. Ferguson, 449; Wantrup, 79a. Baudin's two ships, the Géographe and the Naturaliste, left Le Havre on 19 October 1800. Having sailed for New Holland from Mauritius early in 1801, the expedition sighted Cape Leeuwin on the southwest coast of Australia on 27 May 1801. After exploring Rottnest Island and the Swan River the two ships became separated, but both continued north along the coast independently, eventually arriving in Timor in August and September. In November 1801 the Géographe and the Naturaliste sailed south once more for Cape Leeuwin, and from there Baudin headed to Tasmania and charted much of the east coast of the island. The Naturaliste, under Hamelin, then crossed Bass Strait and surveyed Western Port, before continuing north to Port Jackson. Baudin's ship, the Géographe, proceeded to chart the part of the southern coastline of the Australian continent known as Terre Napoleon, famously meeting Matthew Flinders at Encounter Bay in April 1802. Baudin then returned to Port Jackson by way of the southern coast of Tasmania. From Sydney, Hamelin returned to France with the Naturaliste, while Baudin, in the Géographe, in company with a newly acquired small vessel, the Casuarina, under the command of Louis de Freycinet, continued the expedition's hydrographic work. Baudin and Freycinet surveyed and charted King Island, Kangaroo Island, the Gulf of St. Vincent, and King George's Sound, before travelling north along the Western Australian coast and  eventually arriving at Timor early in May 1803. After again visiting the northwest coast of Australia they commenced the homeward voyage for France. Baudin, however, died en route at Mauritius, and the expedition, under the command of Milius, finally arrived at Le Havre in the Géographe in late March 1804.
