MARSHALL, John
Philadelphia: C. P. Wayne, 1807. unbound. Map. Uncolored engraving. Sheet measures 10.75 x 9.5" Map. Uncolored engraving. Sheet measures 10.75 x 9.5". This lovely 1807 Revolutionary War- era map depicts the Siege of Yorktown, the final campaign in the American Revolutionary War. Under the command of Comte de Rochambeau and George Washington, the Americans attacked the troops of General Cornwallis, who occupied York and Gloucester. The battle was the last major confrontation in the War and resulted in a decisive Franco-American victory with the British surrendering on October 19, 1781. Issued approximately 25 years later, this map details the locations of colonial militias, artilleries, and important leaders, all encircling a central field %u201Cwhere the British laid down their Arms.%u201D The map was part of the rare 1807 atlas volume belonging to Chief Justice John Marshall's seminal six volume biography of Washington. In good condition with minor wear along original folds. John James Marshall (1755--1835) was the fourth Chief Justice of the United States. A renowned Federalist, Marshall's admiration for George Washington led him to publish "The Life of Washington," a five-volume biography of the famed President and general. In 1832, he produced a revised and condensed two-volume edition with hand-colored maps. This map attests both to Marshall's influential work and to the skill of the general it honors.

Paris unter Napoleon - Miller, J. F.:
Reutlingen, Mäcken, 1807. - 8°. 176 SS. Pappband d. Zt., mit etwas Rückenvergoldung Seltene einzige Ausgabe dieser Beschreibung eines Aufenthaltes in Paris ab dem 4. Mai 1802. Der Autor schildert die Sehenswürdigkeiten sowie das gesellschaftliche Leben unter dem Konsulat. Eingeflochten sind einige wenige Gedichte nach der Art von Thümmels ?Reise in die mittäglichen Provinzen? Interessant z.B. die Beschreibung Napoleons: ?Es wurde mir einigemal das Glük, den ersten Consul ganz in der Nähe zu sehen . Ich hatte von Bonaparte mehrere Abbildungen gesehen, auf welchen er als ein großer starker Mann, mit lebhaft feurigem Auge und ganz jugendlichen Zügen erscheint, allein wie erstaunte ich, als ich ein hageres, schwächliches, kleines Männchen von etwa 5 Fuß erblikte, der unter den Generalen und Offizieren seines großen Gefolgs sich durch nichts, als seine ungezwungene Haltung und edle Simplicität in seiner Kleidung auszeichnete? (S. 162). - Mit einem zweiten Titel versehen (in der Paginierung!), bei dem nur die Firmierung abweicht: ?Leipzig 1807. in der Joachim?schen Buchhandlung? "- Etwas stockig, zu Beginn und am Ende etwas deutlicher. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

MARSHALL, John
Philadelphia: C. P. Wayne, 1807. unbound. Map. Uncolored engraving. Sheet measures 17.25 x 10". This scarce 1807 Revolutionary War-era map extends from Harlem in Manhattan, New York City north as far as Croton-on-Hudson. Focusing on the strategic are on the west bank of the Hudson River, the map indicates the changing positions of the American and British armies from October 12 to 28, 1776 between Frog's Point to Croton River to eventually join the Battle of White Plains. The British army forced Washington and his troops first across the Hudson, or North River, and then further into New Jersey: a string of seeming victories that would eventually lead to Washington's famous crossing of the Delaware at Valley Forge and his surprise attack in the Battle of Trenton. To contextualize the armies' paths, the map shows rivers, roads, and topographical elements. The map was part of the rare 1807 atlas volume belonging to Chief Justice John Marshall's seminal six volume biography of Washington. In good condition with minor wear along original folds. John James Marshall (1755--1835) was the fourth Chief Justice of the United States. A renowned Federalist, Marshall's admiration for George Washington led him to publish "The Life of Washington," a five-volume biography of the famed President and general. In 1832, he produced a revised and condensed two-volume edition with hand-colored maps. This map attests both to Marshall's influential work and to the skill of the general it honors.

AIKIN, Arthur & AIKIN, Charles Rochemont
John and Arthur Arch, et al, 1807. FIRST EDITION With 15 engraved plates. Full calf, rebacked with the original spine laid down, covers and spine slightly worn; text in excellent condition with only a few light spots on first title. Bookplates of High Legh Library and Arnold Thackray in each volume. First edition. According to the preface, the author's intention was to give a "faithful and sufficiently detailed description of all the important facts hitherto discovered in the sciences of chemistry and mineralogy, enlarging more particularly on those parts which are of particular interest to the manufacturer and practical chemist." Indeed, according to Duveen, the work "was published at an interesting period, and gives a very full account of the state of chemistry at the beginning of the 19th century." Included are descriptions of processes such as the smelting of copper, iron and tin, as well as the making of vitriol, salt, and other substances derived from the author's own experiments. Many of the great chemists throughout history are cited, especially with respect to the language they used to describe various material and procedures, including Bergman, Scheele, Black, Priestley, Kirwan, and many more. Arthur Aikin (1773-1854) was an English chemist, mineralogist and scientific writer who studied under Joseph Priestley. He was one of the founders of the Geological Society of London in 1807 and was its honorary secretary in 1812-1817. His brother Charles (1775-1847) was a physician and a member of the Royal College of Surgeons. n n

Nineteenth-century armorial bookplate. A very good copy overall. Elizabeth Carter (1717-1806) was, to quote Priscilla Dorr in Schleuter's Encyclopedia of British Women Writers, "the most learned lady in England during the eighteenth century." 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 "with a persistence that won the praise of V. Woolf in A Room of One's Own," (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.
