        [FOUR PRINTED HANDBILLS RELATING TO THE PARLIAMENTARY CAREER OF ENGLISH ABOLITIONIST WILLIAM ROSCOE]

      [Machester; Liverpool, 1807. Four handbills, described below. Light wrinkling, minor soiling and wear. Very good. These four printed handbills relate to electioneering in Liverpool in 1807, with two issued by supporters and two issued by political adversaries of the historian and abolitionist William Roscoe (1751-1831). Roscoe's brief parliamentary career saw him elected as Whig candidate for Liverpool in 1806, however during his public entry to the city on March 2, 1807, one day after the abolition of the slave trade was brought into law, he was harangued by angry slave traders and subsequently withdrew from the 1807 election. One of the handbills here contains a vicious poetic attack on Roscoe's character and interests, noting pointedly that "the African trade is completely destroyed." However, not all in Liverpool were opposed to abolition. Another example present here, headed "Abolition of the slave trade. Roscoe for ever!!" offers a ten-line poem celebrating, and noting Roscoe's support for, abolition. The four handbills are as follows: 1) NO ROSCOE. WILL YOU SUPPORT A MAN WHO HAS DEVOTED THE BEST PART OF HIS LIFE IN THE SERVICE OF A POPE?... [caption title and first line of text]. [N.p., but Liverpool? 1807?]. 9 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches. "'Tis more than we can, more than we will bear, we are Free, for we will not be inslaved by a Pope. [signed in type] An Old Freeman." 2) ADDRESS INTENDED TO HAVE BEEN SPOKEN BY MR. R----E, ON SATURDAY LAST [caption title]. [N.p., but Liverpool? 1807?]. 7 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches. Seven stanzas proclaiming Roscoe a supporter of atheists and liberals. "Since the African Trade is compleatly destroy'd, / The East India Charter shall be null and void." It ends, "I'm a foe to the Church, and no friend to the King." 3) ABOLITION OF THE SLAVE TRADE. ROSCOE FOR EVER!! [caption title]. Manchester: Cowdroy, [1807]. 8 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches. "Lines written extempore for two gentlemen canvassing for the above named, late, worthy, and humane member for Liverpool in order to secure his re-election to serve in the ensuing Parliament. [Followed by ten lines of verse, beginning:] Our wise Creator made men free, / And so 'tis hoped we all shall be; / Our late ex-minister, decreed / That African's should all be freed. / The trade, at that auspicious time, / By Roscoe was pronounced a crime...." 4) TO THOSE HONEST AND INDEPENDENT FREEMEN OF LIERPOOL, WHOSE NOBLE SPIRIT ON THE GLORIOUS 7th OF MAY OUGHT TO BE COMMEMORATED IN LETTERS OF GOLD... [caption title]. [N.p., but Liverpool? 1807?]. 12 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches. The text, in the form of a letter, indicates that Roscoe is giving up the contest: "Your friend Roscoe, has resolved to retire from the contest, to preserve the peace of his native Town, which was threatened by the enemies to his and your cause...."

        MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, TRANSMITTING A COPY OF THE PROCEEDINGS AND OF THE EVIDENCE EXHIBITED ON THE ARRAIGNMENT OF AARON BURR, AND OTHERS, BEFORE THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES, HELD IN VIRGINIA, IN THE YEAR 1807

      Washington, 1807. Contemporary calf, rebacked, with original gilt leather spine label laid down. Edges worn. Contemporary ink ownership signatures, imprint on titlepage effaced with ink burn, also affecting the next leaf, some contemporary ink underlining and marginal bracketing, minor foxing. Still very good. A nice association copy of this important government report concerning the "Burr conspiracy," with the signature of Congressman, mayor of Boston, and Harvard president Josiah Quincy at the top of the titlepage. In the Burr conspiracy, Thomas Jefferson accused former Vice President Aaron Burr and a host of co-conspirators of treason. Specifically, Burr and his cohorts were indicted for plotting to detach portions of the American West and South, as well as Spanish Texas, from the United States, in order to create their own empire. Burr claimed that he was simply trying to take possession of 40,000 acres in the Texas territory that had been leased to him by the Spanish Crown, in order to farm the land. In the end, Burr was acquitted of treason, but the entire affair effectively ended his already faltering political career. In the present work, President Jefferson collects and transmits documents and testimony pertaining to Burr and his co-conspirators. The second part of the text also collects various motions of the court during Burr's trial. "This is the first published report of the trial at Richmond in 1807 of Aaron Burr for treason, and on his trial immediately afterward for a misdemeanor in preparing for a military expedition against Mexico. He was acquitted in each case" - Streeter. Rare in the marketplace; the Streeter copy realized $350 in 1968. STREETER SALE 1680. HOWES B1009, "aa." SABIN 9429. TOMPKINS 57.

        Female biography; or, memoirs of illustrious and celebrated women, of all ages and countries.

      Philadelphia: Birch & Small (pr. by Fry & Kammerer) 8vo (22.3 cm, 8.8"). 3 vols. I: vi, [2], 488 pp. II: [4], 510, [2 (adv.)] pp. III: [4], 512 pp.. 1807 First American edition, following the London first of 1803. This encyclopedic collection of lives of famous (and infamous) women was compiled by controversial novelist, editor, and feminist Mary Hays, friend of Mary Wollstonecraft — who is, curiously, not counted among the "illustrious and celebrated women" here. Among those who did make the cut are Sappho, Diane de Poitiers, Matoaks (a.k.a. Pocahontas), Susannah Centlivre, Charlotte Corday, Anne Boleyn, Mrs. Pilkington, and Anne Broadstreet (i.e., Bradstreet). Hays notes in her preface that "Women, unsophisticated by the pedantry of the schools, read not for dry information, to load their memories with uninteresting facts, or to make a display of a vain erudition . . . they require pleasure to be mingled with instruction, lively images, the graces of sentiment, and the polish of language" (vol. I, p. iii). These last things, she strives to supply herself! Period-style quarter tan cloth over blue-grey paper–covered sides, spines with printed paper labels. Title-page of each volume with the blind pressure- (not perforation-) stamp of a social club library. As in all copies we have had, pages age-toned, with a few foxed or spotted; occasional short edge tears, not extending into text. Three leaves in vol. II with tears in margin with loss of paper only and four other leaves in the same volume with loss of paper and either a few letters (pp. 107–10) or words (approximately half the words on each of five lines on pp. 151–52 and a word or three on each of five lines on 229–30). => A good resource and a good "read.

        A NARRATIVE OF THE OPERATIONS OF A SMALL BRITISH FORCE, UNDER THE COMMAND OF BRIGADIER-GENERAL SIR SAMUEL AUCHMUTY, EMPLOYED IN THE REDUCTION OF MONTE VIDEO, ON THE RIVER PLATE, A.D. 1807. By a Field Officer on the Staff. Illustrated with a Plan of the Operations

      London: Printed for John Joseph Stockdale, 1807. Quarto. Original boards, with letterpress title on front cover and publisher's advertisement on rear cover, rebacked and recornered. Some soiling on cover, inner hinges reinforced. Light offsetting of plan onto titlepage, otherwise clean internally. Very good. In a cloth slipcase. An anonymous account by a field officer, now attributed to John Goulston Price Tucker, of Samuel Auchmuty's capture of Montevideo in 1807. This attack was one of a series of British incursions in South America in the beginning of the 19th century. Auchmuty's original mission was to retake Buenos Aires, which had briefly been under British control. As this was not possible, he chose instead to attack nearby Montevideo, which was strongly fortified, but much smaller than Buenos Aires. The work includes the narrative of the operations and the text of Auchmuty's general order declaring victory. An appendix records Auchmuty's own version of the events, names of British wounded and killed, prizes taken at Montevideo, and related proceedings in Parliament. The engraved plan shows the geographic region, with British troop movements delineated. SABIN 51819. ALBERICH 1248.

      Berlin, Friedrich Maurer, 1802 und 1807. - Erste illustrierte Ausgabe. Interessante Autobiographie des seinerzeit berühmten Schauspielers (1735-1799). "Einer der gebildetsten Schauspieler seiner Zeit und geachteter Theaterschriftsteller, dessen eigene Lebensbeschreibung zur Kenntnis der Entwicklung von Theaterwesen und Schauspielerstand wichtig ist" (Gassen in der NDB II 521). Dieses Gegenstück zu Christs 'Erinnerungen' ermöglicht vielfältige Einblicke nicht nur in das Theaterleben jener Zeit. "Brandes will zeigen, wie unglücklich die Folgen verwahrloster Erziehung und jugendlicher Unbesonnenheit sein können und schildert mit anziehender und schonungsloser Aufrichtigkeit die Abenteuer, die er als durchgebrannter Kaufmannslehrling erlebte, da er als Landstreicher, als Knecht eines Quacksalbers, als Hausierhändler sich kümmerlich durchschlug und übel umhergestoßen wurde, bis er endlich als Schauspieler sein Brot fand und bei den Truppen von Schönemann und Schuch, dann in München, Dresden, Mannheim und weiterhin unter Schröder in Hamburg tätig war. Neben der fesselnden Schilderung seiner Jugendabenteuer gibt das Werk auch wertvolle Einblicke in die Lebensgewohnheiten des Schauspielerstandes in jener Zeit" (Klaiber). Die erste Ausgabe von 1799-1800 enthielt nur die 3 Titelkupfer und noch nicht die hübschen Szenenkupfer. – Teils gebräunt, gelegentlich leicht fleckig. Exlibris. Selten. – Goed.

        A Journal of the Voyages and Travels of Lewis and Clark

      M'Keehan, 1807 The true first edition of this 1807 account of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Is complete, except that the title page is a facsimile, new end papers, first couple of pages have some pieces missing (see photo). The first published book on the expedition, the greatest in the history of the American west. Bound in quarter leather over marbled boards, very good condition. Comes in a custom-made collector's slipcase. Pittsburgh: Printed by Zadok Cramer for David M'Keehan, 1807., 1807. 12mo., (6 5/8 x 4 1/8 inches). "WE HAVE ENCOURAGED OUR MEN TO KEEP JOURNALS, AND SEVEN OF THEM DO SO, TO WHOM IN THIS RESPECT WE GIVE EVERY ASSISTANCE IN OUR POWER" (Lewis, letter to Jefferson 7 April 1805). First edition. The first full published account of the Corps of Discovery by a member of the expedition, Patrick Gass, who "became one of the best-known members of the expedition for several reasons: his key role as sergeant brought his name up frequently in the journals of Lewis and Clark; his account was the first to be published; he was the first to have a biography written about him; and finally, he outlived the other members of the Corps of Discovery by decades" (Wagner-Camp-Becker 6:1). "Although [Gass's Journal] lacked the insight, reflection, and depth of geographic, ethnographic, diplomatic, and scientific observations penned by Lewis and Clark, it and Jefferson's Message from the President were the only accounts available for seven years to describe the expedition's adventures" (Beckham, p. 89). "Sergeant Patrick Gass outlived every person who served on the Lewis and Clark expedition whose fate is known. Having lived so long, Gass is one of the best known of the expedition's enlisted men and has had more written about him than any other man in the Corps of Discovery, except for the two captains" (DANB).

        Orme's Collection of British Field Sports illustrated in twenty beautiful coloured engravings.

      London Edward Orme 1 January -25 March 1808 1807 - Landscape folio (45.5 x 55 cm). Hand-coloured aquatint title, list of plates with aquatint vignette, and 20 hand-coloured, deckle-edged aquatint plates principally by W.M. Craig, J. Godby, and H. Merke after Howitt. Plate captions in English and French, corrective overslips as usual on the captions to plates 2 and 9. (Title with repaired tear at lower corner and with small Spitz ownership stamp on verso, his stamp repeated on verso of final plate.) Full blue morocco by the Lakeside Press, Chicago, the covers dark blue, contrasting light blue title label on front cover with gilt cartouche, light blue morocco spine with raised bands titled in gilt, blue buckram slipcase. "Very rare The first and only edition of the finest and most important sporting book of the last two centuries" (Schwerdt). Tooley calls it 'a magnificent work, the most valuable English colour plate book on sport'. Although there are fox, stag and hare hunting scenes, the majority of plates depict the shooting of different game birds in deeply rural woods and pastureland. The present copy contains the plates in an early state, printed on sheets watermarked 1804, 1805 or 1806 (Abbey records copies dated as late as 1819). The word 'cheveau' in plate 2 has an 'x' added in pencil. A handsome copy with plates uncut. Samuel Howitt (1756/57–1822) was an English painter, illustrator and etcher of animals, hunting, horse-racing and landscape scenes. Howitt was closely associated in his art with Thomas Rowlandson, whose sister he married. Howitt's early watercolour style has similarities to Rowlandson's, but Howitt developed a more individual style as his career as a sporting artist progressed. He seems to have had an innate capacity for drawing animals, from commonplace hare and deer to exotic species that he studied in menageries. He was an animated draughtsman, and his drawings of hunts and sporting events have a fluidity and excitement fitting to the subject. (ODNB). Edward Orme (1775-1848) was, after Rudolph Ackermann, the most important publisher of illustrated books during the short golden age of the coloured aquatint. Orme's output totalled some 700 illustrations, but his monument is his British Field Sports. Abbey Scenery 14; Mellon/Podeschi 86; Schwerdt II, p. 53; Tooley 273. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Dampstain covering much of label and touching on the surrounding board paper pastedown, which has a moderate amount of other soiling too. The dampstain is heavy for small area of label, but none of the type is unreadable. Also a small finger-scrape hole of the label, again not affecting its content materially. A few light stains and finger smudges of the interior leaves, but overall these come off as crisp and clean. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Udfald mod de Engelske i Classens Have, under Kiöbenhavns Beleiring, d. 31. August 1807.

      1807 1807 - Akvatinte udført af G.L. Lahde efter forlæg af C.W. Eckersberg. 1807. 32 x 46 cm. [Inkl. margin 40,5x53 cm.]. * Tidlig om morgenen den 31. august rykkede 2200 mand under oberst Bechs kommando ud fra Kastellet mod Classens Have, som lå mellem Classensgade, Østerbrogade, Rosenvængets Allé og stranden ca. 1 km nord for det daværende Københavns Øster Port. Formålet var at afbrænde bygninger og fælde træer, derfor deltog 50 tømmermænd fra Holmen. Udfaldet blev understøttet med 3 kanonbåde fra søsiden. Den 70-årige Generalmajor Peymann (som aldrig tidligere havde haft en militær kommando, det meste af sin tjenestetid havde han tilbragt bag skrivebordet) blev såret af en flintekugle i det venstre lår. Udfaldet mod Classens Have den 31. august var dog helt uden strategisk betydning. Englænderne havde på dette tidspunkt færdiggjort deres batteristillinger, som lå uden for søerne - altså meget længere væk fra byen end Classens Have. Udfaldet kunne på ingen måde genere fjenden, det var nytteløst at foretage et udfald, som kun havde Classens Have som mål, når fjendens hele strategi byggede på et artilleriangreb. Eckersberg har fastholdt udfaldet med sin skitse, som efterfølgende blev stukket af G.L. Lahde. Til venstre kan man se en af tømmermændene i gang med at fælde et træ, foran ligger døde eller sårede soldater, imens krudtrøgen bølger i baggrunden. De døde og sårede soldater på Eckersberg skitse er formentlig danske, da de engelske styrker ikke opholdt sig i Classens have. [Portal om dansk historie].

        Disertacion sobre dos Zodiacos recien descubiertos en Egipto, leida en junta extraordinaria de la Academia de Religion Catolica el dia 5 de julio de 1802. Traducida de italiano en castellano por Don Luis Testa, presbitero, secretario de la Legacia de Roma.

      Madrid, en la Imprenta Real, 1807. - in-8. (1f.blanc). 3ff. 58pp. 1 planche gravée hors-texte. (1f.blanc). Plein maroquin rouge, dos lisse orné, armoiries royales au centre du plat supérieur, filet doré d'encadrement, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque, petits trous de vers au dos). Première et unique traduction en espagnol de cette dissertation relative à la découverte de deux zodiaques en Egypte lors de la campagne de Napoléon. Leur datation suscita une vive polémique parmi les astronomes de l'époque (Lalande, Burckhardt, etc.) parce qu'elle semblait remettre en question la chronologie biblique. L'abbé Testa (1746-1825), soutenu par l'archéologue Visconti, devint le chef de file des défenseurs de la Bible et data les zodiaques du IIIe siècle avant J-C. L'ouvrage est illustré d'une planche gravée représentant des chapiteaux des temples de Dendérah et de Henné. Précieux exemplaire aux armes du roi d'Espagne Carlos IV (1788-1808). Palau, 331020.

        A History and Description of London, Westminster and Southwark - in four volumes

      James Robins and Co., London 1807 - Four volumes (complete). Edward Pugh wrote under the name David Hughson. In this way he wrote several volumes of the history and then later walks about London and its environs in the early 1800s. This set are amongst his earliest works. This is an attractive set from the library of Frederick J O Montagu (a barontecy was established for third time in this owner's lifetime). Each volume has a small, attractive ex-libris plate on the first pastedown. All volumes have been rebound in half leather. The leather edges have gilt scoring. The leathered spines have five ridges. Each of the panels has either gilt titling or gilt decoration. They are smart and youthfully handsome. Each of the volumes have gilt papertrims along the top edges. The pages of all volumes have printer marks. Chalk paper frontis and end papers. Handmade paper. Volume 1: Albion Press; the front and back pages have been stained by damp. The back pages have been wrinkled. The binding is tight, the pages are clear and easy to read. They may be handled with confidence and enjoyment. Folded maps and plans in good, sound condition. The damp stains do not interfere with text thus ensuring that reading is unaffected. The back cover is marked and stained from the damp. The leather is serene. Volume II: printed by W. Stratford, Temple-Bar. As for Volume I save for the complete absence of any damp damage/ marks/ stains. The corners have knocks. The leather spine has very mild wear. The pages, text and illustrations are clear, genial and a pleasure. Volume III: Albion Press. This volume has damp damage and staining to the back. The leather is unaffected. The last pages have been wrinkled and/or stained. They are, however, clear and eager. The frontis and very early pages have mild edge wear and storage damage. This does not intrude on the pages much beyond the edges. The book is resolutely approachable and enjoyable. The text, illustrations etc are neat and clear and clean. The corners have some wear. Volume IV: printer not indicated. The covers have some damp marks and staining. Within, the early and later pages have some mild wrinkling. The contents are assured, reassuring, clubbable. Each volume has a previous owner stamp (B Alexander and a book number). Each volume is attractive for the shelf. The wonderful thing about this set of walks about Westminster and Southwark is that they may still be used! And where war damage is encountered, the descriptions and tales would provoke wistfulness on top of the pleasure and ease of the explorations. A pleasant, happy set despite the above mentioned damp consequences, and certainly one to extract admiring comments from acquisitive visitors. fk [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
