        AN ACCOUNT OF A VOYAGE UP THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER, FROM ST. LOUIS TO ITS SOURCE; MADE UNDER THE ORDERS OF THE WAR DEPARTMENT, BY LIEUT. PIKE, OF THE UNITED STATES ARMY, IN THE YEARS 1805 AND 1806. COMPILED FROM MR. PIKE'S JOURNAL.

      [Washington. 1807]. - 68pp. (pp. 65-68 in facsimile) and folding map. Three quarter calf and marbled boards. Last two leaves of text in expert facsimile. Ex-Library of Congress, with their perforated stamp on the titlepage. Light scattered foxing. Map with scattered foxing and light toning in places. Overall, still a decent copy. One of the rarest works of western exploration, this publication precedes the author's better known volume by three years. Only a few copies are known, and not all of them are accompanied by the map, which illustrates the Mississippi from St. Louis north to its presumed headwaters. The journal describes Pike's attempts to locate the headwaters of the Mississippi. His notable work on this expedition led to his appointment as leader of the western expedition several years later. A manuscript copy of this work in the Library of Congress is in the hand of Nicholas King, and the text was assembled by King from Pike's notes. The report was meant to be distributed to Congress before they adjourned in March 1807, but the publication was not completed in time. Jefferson ordered it sent to some members of Congress and others, and personally forwarded a copy to the American Philosophical Society. All bibliographers agree on the tremendous rarity of this work. This firm sold a perfect copy of this work for $30,000 in 2006. WAGNER-CAMP 6a. GRAFF 3289. HOWES P372, "d." STREETER SALE 1774.

Brunet,II, p. 600 - The Hill Collection of Pacific Voyages, 467: ?D?Entrecasteaux (1737 - 1793), French admiral and governor of Mauritius, was sent to the Pacific in 1791 to search for La Pérouse. No traces of the lost expedition were found, but in the course of his search D?Entrecasteaux made important geographical discoveries.. The second captain was Huon Kermadec, after whom the islands North of New Zealand were named. The naturalist for the expedition was Jacques Julien de Labillardière. They explored the West and Southwest coasts of Australia, the South coast of Tasmania, the West coast of New Caledonia, and visited Tonga and the Santa Cruz Islands. The D?Entrecasteaux Islands near New Guinea were discovered and named for the admiral, who later died of colic off the north coast of New Guinea. The French Revolution divided the expedition; the royalists joined the Dutch on Java, and the republicans fell into the hands of the British Royal Navy. Also captured were the expedition?s journal, charts, and natural history specimens. Sir Joseph Banks ordered that they be delivered to the coast of France under a flag of truce?.

        Catalogue for J.J. Stockdale

      1807. No place, (but London): J.J.Stockdale, n.d. (but circa 1807-1820), small 8vo. 8pp. Self-wrappers (small hole in front cover). A catalogue of publications available through John Stockdale, Jr. Includes portraits of Charles I, travel literature, historical accounts and poetry. John Joseph Stockdale (died 1847) like his father John (1750-1814) was a bookseller. He started to work for his father in 1793 and established his own business in Pall Mall in 1806. Both Stockdales were controversial people. John Joseph is probably best known for publishing the memoirs of the courtesan Harriette Wilson in 1826 which attracted a crowd outside his shop. Before publication of the bookseller and author wrote together to all her lovers and clients offering to leave their names out of the book in exchange for a cash payment. Among these lovers was Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington who famously responded with, "Publish and be damned".

First edition. The work was "commissioned as a textbook for [Brongniart's] and Haüy's courses at the Faculté des Sciences and the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle. He adopted a simple scheme of classification based mainly on physical properties, but he also made extensive use of Haüy's crystallographic work... He emphasized the importance of studying the modes of occurrence of minerals as well as their properties, but firmly avoided any discussion of their origins as being too speculative... Brongniart's early studies in zoology and mineralogy coalesced in the geological work that made him famous throughout the scientific world" (DSB).//Sinkankas 953.

Datos Sobre Algunas Leyes Inglesas que han Contribuido al Poder de la Gran Bretana en Perjuicio de las Demas Naciones, Con Observaciones Utiles a los que Estudian la Economia Politica. Dedicalas al Espanol Amante de su Patria, Y a los Jovenes que Aprenden a Servirla. Madrid: En la Imprenta de Alban, 1807. x, [2], 257 pp. Octavo (5-3/4" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary tree-sheep, lettering piece and gilt fillets to spine, marbled endpapers. Some rubbing to extremities, corners bumped. Some toning to text, light dampstaining to upper corner of rear quarter of text block, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. This enthusiastically anti-British work details the ways Britain has manipulated international trade laws in its favor, and against the interests of Spain. It sketches the history of British politics as it affected the country's foreign entanglements, and lists some of the tricks used by Britain to win over international opinion. Inspired by Adam Smith, Severo discusses a wide variety of trades and industries, including whaling, herring, fishing, the trade in coal and tobacco, and shipbuilding, describing the shipping routes used by British merchant vessels and British trade with India, the Americas (including South America) and the Baltic. Severo analyses the effect of British trade laws, and the enthusiasm with which the British sing (and mean) Rule Britannia. OCLC locates 2 copies in North America (at Harvard and Yale).
