Jefferson, Thomas
(Monticello, Virginia), 1807. Very Good. One quarto sheet. Monticello: September 26, 1807. Third person Autograph Letter Signed by Jefferson in the body of the letter and again on the verso above the address: "free. Th. Jefferson Pr. US.", authorizing free postal delivery. Old light fold lines, one slight separation along a horizontal fold, one small tear from where the original wax seal was opened, very good. A fine handwritten letter dating from Jefferson's second term as President, sent to "His Excellency Governor Cabell, Richmond." Written by Jefferson in the third person, as was his custom for this type of formal correspondence, Jefferson refers to an enclosed "letter on the subject of Col. Larkin Smith," (not present) and authorizes Cabell "to put the letter under his cover & ask the favor of his superscribing the proper post office." A nice association between two important Virginians with two autograph signatures of Jefferson.

Carter, Elizabeth.
London: Printed for F.C. and J. Rivington, 1807. Elizabeth Carter (1717-1806) was, to quote Priscilla Dorr in SchleuterÕs Encyclopedia of British Women Writers, Òthe most learned lady in England during the eighteenth century.Ó She was one of the most famous members of the Blue Stocking Circle, which also included Catherine Talbot, Elizabeth Vesey, Elizabeth Montagu, Hester Chapone, and Hannah More. Despite an early learning disability and Òwith a persistence that won the praise of V. Woolf in A Room of OneÕs Own,Ó (as Margaret Drabble reminds us in the Oxford Companion to English Literature) she learned Latin, Greek, and Hebrew in childhood with her brothers, and later studied French, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Arabic. She was a friend of Samuel Johnson, who thought her one of the best Greek scholars he had known, and invited her to contribute to The Rambler. She made a number of translations, of which her Epictetus is the masterpiece. Quarto. [8], 643, [1] pp. Engraved frontispiece. Contemporary calf, gilt decorated flat spine, gilt borders on both covers, edges sprinkledred. Front joint cracked, but sound, back joint just starting. Binding extremities rubbed, endpapers and plate lightly foxed, offsetting from portrait onto title-page. Minor foxing otherwise. Nineteenth-century armorial bookplate. A very good copy overall. First edition. Jackson, Romantic Poetry by Women, page 52. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Dallas, Alexander James
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 all are 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 ed … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gass, Patrick
Pittsburgh [PA]: printed by Zadok Cramer, for David M'Keehan, 1807. First edition. 12mo. 262 pp. Contemporary 1/4 leather and marbled boards (rubbed); gilt rules and gilt title on spine. Some old staining to endpapers and toning to text pages, lacking blank front endpaper, small piece missing from blank front flyleaf, faint old tidelines to last 15 pages. Contemporary pencil and ink notes, mostly illegible on endpapers. A previous owner's signature, "R. Huston, Canonsburg, Washington" [County, Pennsylvania], on the upper margins of the text pages. This may be Dr. Robert M. Huston (1795-1864), Professor of Materia Medica and Midwifery at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia from 1839 to 1857. Jefferson College in Canonsburg was the parent institution for the medical school founded in Philadelphia in 1825. Front joint starting, some rubbing and scuffing to boards, but overall a very good, tight, unsophisticated copy. Gass' journal was the first report published on the Corps of Discovery's travels and became an important early record of the nearly two and one-half year expedition. Streeter calls this narrative "one of the essential books for an Americana collection." The journal, kept throughout the expedition, offers an unvarnished account of the challenges the Corps faced as it explored the newly acquired territory of President Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase. Gass was a skilled carpenter and played a major roll in the construction of the winter camps at Forts Mandan and Clatsop for the expedition.

First edition of what some have called the first Canadian coffee table book which underestimates its value as an important and comprehensive account of Canada. Heriot at postmaster-general of British North America 1799-1816, travelled extensively in the area, describing the fur trade, cod fishery, conditions, one of the best accounts of the loyalists settlements in Canada, voyage to the north, as well as a scholarly study of the indigenous peoples of north and south America, with a vocabulary of the Algonquin language. Prideaux 254: 'Illustrated books on North America are curiously few in the period with which we deal. By far the most interesting is Heriot's Travels Through the Canadas, interesting for its aquatints by Stadler and Lewis after Heriot'. The attractive plates from Heriot's fine paintings include: views of Quebec, St. Paul's Bay, Falls of Montmorenci, Falls of ChaudiÞre, Falls of La Puce, Ruins of ChÔteau Richer, Lake St. Charles, River Etchemin, Bridge on the Jacques Cartier, Montreal, Fort of Niagara, Whirlpool of the Saint Lawrence, Falls of Niagara, Fr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stuttgart, Cotta, 1807-1849. Abweichende Pappbände, viele zeitgenössisch, einige Bände neu gebunden im Stil der Zeit. Umfangreicher Bestand dieses seltenen Organs; natürlich fehlen einzelne Nummern in den verschiedenen Rubriken, zu 97% ist der Bestand aber vorhanden. Bei einer Tageszeitung bedeutet das viel. Das Blatt erschien an 6 Tagen in der Woche und enthielt einige Beilagen, wie das Literaturblatt oder das Kunstblatt. Einige der Nummern enthalten auch lithographische Blätter oder Stahlstiche, teils Ansichten, teils Noten. Die No. 1, erschienen am 1. Jänner 1807, besteht nur aus einem Artikel Jean Paul's, nämlich seiner "Abschieds-Rede bey dem künftigen Schlusse des Morgenblattes"; darin heißt es "Eine Zeitschrift ist kein immerwährender Kalender . sogar die Acta eruditorum und das Journal des Scavans hörten auf, so wie das lange Parlament längst vorher. Angekündigt werden 8 Rubriken, nämlich 1) schöne Literatur, 2) Kunst, 3) Sitten und Kulturgeschichte, 4) biographische Skizzen, 5) kleine Reisen, 6) Gedichte, 7) Miszellen, 8) Beylagen von Zeichungen und Noten. Der Name Morgenblatt komme daher, dass man den Morgen als die Zeit der größten Energie ansehe; der Geschäftsmann solle sich am Morgen mit einem Gedicht, oder anderem Kunstwerk, oder mit Philosophie oder mit Religion gegen das Treiben des Tages rüsten . Böttiger bezeichnet in no. 3 (3. Januar 1807) das Blatt als "ein harmloses, selbst mitten im Krieg nur die Friedenskünste liebendes und übendes Morgenblatt", das seinen Lesern aber nicht empfehle, in "einer solchen thatenschwangeren, schicksalsvollen Zeit" das neue … [Click Below for Full Description]
