        Elementi dell'arte statistica

      1808. CAGNAZZI de Samuele Luca. Elementi dell'arte statistica. Parte prima e seconda. Napoli, nella Stamperia Flautina, 1808-1809. In 8vo; pp.XXIV,224; VIII,336. Due tavole spieghevoli. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle, titolo e fregi in oro al dorso. Edizione originale rara. Luca de Samuele Cagnazzi (Altamura, 28 ottobre 1764-Napoli, 26 settembre 1852). Einaudi I, 775. Treccani.it: "La sua notorietà è particolarmente legata agli studi di statistica. Il Cagnazzi fu infatti il primo in Italia ad esporre i fini ed i limiti della nuova scienza e ad uscire dalle incertezze in cui si era dibattuto Melchiorre Gioia. Alla vigilia dell'occupazione francese, incaricato di redigere un censimento degli uomini atti alle armi, compilò una Tavola statistica, alla quale seguì la pubblicazione della prima opera organica sulla materia apparsa in Italia: Elementi dell'arte statistica, pubblicati in due parti fra il 1808-1809, a Napoli. Il nucleo dell'opera, che non contiene dati statistici ma principi generali sul fine da conseguire e sulle questioni di metodo, è costituito da ampie considerazioni sullo "stato delle scienze economiche"; scienze che il C. esorta ad abbracciare nella totalità. Dal quadro che ne risulta emergono gli scopi pratici dell'economia che, nel pensiero del C., riguardano tutti i fattori utili al progresso dell'umanità, fondati su un'adeguata preparazione morale e politica".

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1808 - Quarto (263 × 208 mm). Recent half calf to style, marbled boards, red morocco label, compartments enclosing elliptical roundels formed by gilt gallery and disc roll. Frontispiece somewhat browned, a little creased and with a small repair at the inner margin, overall a little browned, a minor paper repairs to corners of a few leaves, slight damp cockling in the lower margin, particularly towards the rear, but remains a very copy. Frontispiece of Baghdad, plate of Antioch, both uncoloured aquatints. First edition. Little is known of Parson's origins, he was probably born in Bristol, the son of a merchant captain. "In early life he visited many countries in command of merchant vessels, an occupation that suited a man 'naturally fond of novelty, and remarkably inquisitive'" (ODNB). He unsuccessfully tried to establish himself as a merchant in Bristol, but in 1767 was approached by the Turkey Company to become their "consul and marine factor" at Iskenderun, Aleppo's port, where he worked for six years before ill-health forced him to resign. Subsequently he travelled extensively for "commercial speculation, making several journeys in Asia Minor in 1772–4, and travelling from Iskenderun through the mountains to Aleppo. From there he crossed the desert to Baghdad, where he stayed between May and October 1774. He travelled up the Euphrates to Hillah and downriver to Basrah, where he was during the siege by a Persian army in 1775. He next visited Bombay, and then – ever inquisitive – made a lengthy voyage along the west coast of India as far as Goa, returning to Bombay early in 1776. In 1778 he travelled via the Red Sea and Egypt, and visited Mocha, Suez, Cairo, and Rosetta. Having returned to Europe in the same year he retired to Leghorn, where he died in 1785." He left his manuscript account to his brother-in-law, the Revd John Berjew of Bristol, whose son, the Revd John Paine Berjew, edited it for publication. Parsons was as curious and attentive traveller, his observations giving "insights into the various places that he visited, including Bombay, Mocha, and Cairo. Everywhere he took much interest in commerce, government, and ways of life", of particular interest are his account of the preparations at Cairo for the inundation of the Nile, and of its effects; and his description of "the 216 groups making up the grand procession of pilgrims to Mecca". Abbey notes an octavo edition of 1802, apparently in error. Abbey, Travel 348; Atabey 927; not in Blackmer; Gay 104; Hamilton, Arcadian Library 12649. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Supreme Court Justice Livingston Recommends a Young New Yorker to James Madison

      New York 1808 - Autograph Letter Signed, to James Madison. New York, November 30, 1808. 1 p. Justice Livingston writes a letter of recommendation to President-elect James Madison for Peter Cruger, son of an influential New York City merchant. Complete Transcript New York 30th Novr. 1808Sir, Mr: Peter Cruger, a son in law of Mr Church, with whom you are acquainted, being on a visit to Washington, I take the liberty of recommending him to your attentions & civilities, & have the honor to be, with great respect, your very obed sert Brockholst LivingstonThe honbleJas. MadisonHistorical BackgroundLivingston and Madison were each Jeffersonians, the former having been appointed to the Supreme Court by Thomas Jefferson in 1806. At the date of this letter, Secretary of State Madison had just won the presidential election of 1808 over Charles Cotesworth Pinckney. Cruger was related by marriage to deceased Federalist leaders Alexander Hamilton and Philip Schuyler, but that did not necessarily preclude a friendly visit to Madison.Henry Brockholst Livingston (1757-1823) - member of the powerful Livingston family of New York and New Jersey, the future Supreme Court Justice dropped his first name to distinguish himself from other relatives of the same name. He attended the College of New Jersey (now Princeton) with James Madison. In the early years of the Revolution, Livingston was a captain of the New York line and served on the staffs of Benedict Arnold and Philip Schuyler, falling into disfavor when Horatio Gates assumed command of the Northern Army. He accompanied his brother-in-law, John Jay, as secretary in 1782, and was captured by the British. After his release, he returned to New York City and studied to enter the law. He was active in New York politics as a Jeffersonian Republican, killed Federalist James Jones in a duel in 1798, and helped Jefferson and Burr win New York in 1800. From 1802 to 1807, he served on the New York Supreme Court. In 1807, Jefferson nominated him to replace William Paterson on the U.S. Supreme Court. Though many expected him to be a spokesman for the Jeffersonian party on the Marshall Court, Livingston fell under the sway of the affable Federalist Chief Justice, John Marshall, and produced only eight dissents in sixteen years on the court. He was an expert in commercial and prize law and generally favored using the law to promote capitalist development.James Madison (1746-1836) often called the "Father of the Constitution" for his instrumental role in conceiving and defending a plan to create a more powerful national government before and during the Constitutional Convention of 1787. From the piedmont of Virginia, Madison was the co-author of The Federalist Papers with Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, co-founder of the Jeffersonian Republican Party, Congressman, Secretary of State, and fourth president of the U.S. (1809-1817). President Madison led the nation during the War of 1812.

        Travels in Africa : performed by Silvester Meinrad Xavier Golberry in the western parts of that vast continent : containing various important discoveries : with a particular account of the situation, extent, towns, rivers, lakes, mines, minerals, fisherie 2 Volumes

      London: Jones and Bumford,. Fine with no dust jacket. 1808. Second Edition. Hardcover. This is an extremely scarce set of Golbery's extensive account of his travels in Africa inThe set is in fair antiquarian condition. It is a married set, with Vol. I slightly smaller than Vol. II, but the title pages and pagination are as they should be. Volume I has a folding plan of the Island of Goree at the frontis as well as a folding chart of the Senegal River. Vol. II has a frontis plate of an elephant, two plates of indigenous Africans (including one indicating that these natives are free men), two plates (duplicate) of a two-humped Dromedary camel (!), one plate showing a boa constrictor attacking a tiger, and one plate with a view of Isle St. Louis in the Senegal. The large map of Africa is not present. All text pages are present, [ii], 362, [vi] 373, [xvi] and 6 plates at the rear. The books are 12mos measuring 7” x 4” and 7.25” x 4,25: Both are bound in what appears to be the original bindings. Vol. I has calf spine and corners with marbled hard covers which are quite worn. Interior is foxed with browning, some old ownership signatures, but otherwise clean and unmarked. Vol. II has a paper spine with blue hard paper boards, spine covering mostly perished but book still holding together. Interior blanks are gone, first plate and title page quite foxed, rear plates cleaner, but otherwise clean and unmarked. A worn set but one that is textually complete with most plates and folding plans. Golbery's account of his travels in Western Africa provide an excellent overview of the indigenous people, their customs, habits and industry. It includes much on gold mining and the natural history of the region. Golbery (1742-1822) was encouraged to go on a travel adventure by Louis XVI, who was upset by Capt. Cook's naval exploits for the rival England. Louis wanted to show the territorial superiority of France and the French had just taken Senegal back in 1783. France's power in Africa and favorable local circumstances made it possible for Golbery to attain important discoveries in the interior of the continent. Golbery – who was profoundly anti-slavery – celebrated the end of French slavery in Africa in the book (sadly, Napoleon shortly thereafter restored slavery). ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .

One of 2000 copies issued. The poem concerns Lord Marmion who is after a favorite of Henry VIII, the wealthy heiress, Clara de Clare.

Marmion is killed in the battle while De Wilton regains his honor, estates, and Clara. The book was a tremendous success, despite its exceedingly high price, with at least three editions issued the same year. NCBEL III, 370. Ruff 59 (see pp.49-53).

        Receipt for 122 Slaves signed by N. J. Bayard

      1808 - Holograph document. Single half sheet. 20 x 14cm. Written on one side only. Dated July 8th, 1808. Two vertical and horizontal folds. Minor splitting along folds. Receipt for "122 negros" from "Wm Lindsy Jun." Included 71 sold, minus 1 returned by Henry Sadler, 14 died, 33 delivered to Wm Lindsy and 4 remaining "subject to order of Wm Lindsy Jun." Location not given, but possibly Havana. The relation between Bayard and "Lindsy" is unclear. A death rate of about 11% is in line with Coughtry's estimate of an average mortality rate of about 12% on the slaving voyages covered in "The Notorious Triangle." A William Lindsey shows up in that book [at pages 279 and 284] as the captain of slave ships sailing from Bristol, Rhode Island in 1805 and 1807 and delivering their cargos of slaves to Havana. The slaves covered by this receipt may well have been brought from Africa after the Federal ban on importation of slaves into the United States took effect on January 1, 1808.

Initialed in ink with his paraph below his printed name, Martinez de Bustos (1726-?), Archdeacon of Trastamara and General Apostolic Commissar of the Three Graces, distributed this proclamation calling for a new oath of allegiance to King Fernando VII by the new Spanish Junta, and if sworn, thus annulling any prior oath people may have taken out of fear or coercion: "reprobando y anulando cualquier juramento o acto contrario que hayan hecho por miedo, coacción o falta de advertencia y libertad: en la inteligencia de que a los inobedientes se les considerará como reos de lesa Majestad, y de que Vm. ha de pasar a mis manos un testimonio que acredite haber prestado el referido juramento." Similar wording was used in the Gaceta and published in other venues. This copy was individualized for the Dioceses de Charcas, present day Sucre, Bolivia, and its first deputy under Benito María de Moxó y Francolí,O.S.B.(1805-1816 d.). All versions rare. Not in Palau.

Initialed in ink with his paraph below his printed name, Martinez de Bustos (1726-?), Archdeacon of Trastamara and General Apostolic Commissar of the Three Graces, distributed this proclamation calling for a new oath of allegiance to King Fernando VII by the new Spanish Junta, and if sworn, thus annulling any prior oath people may have taken out of fear or coercion: "reprobando y anulando cualquier juramento o acto contrario que hayan hecho por miedo, coacción o falta de advertencia y libertad: en la inteligencia de que a los inobedientes se les considerará como reos de lesa Majestad, y de que Vm. ha de pasar a mis manos un testimonio que acredite haber prestado el referido juramento." Similar wording was used in the Gaceta and published in other venues. This copy was individualized for the Dioceses de Charcas, present day Sucre, Bolivia, and its first deputy under Benito María de Moxó y Francolí, O.S.B. (1805-1816 d.). All versions rare.

        David, Jules - Fashion.

      ELEGANTE DAMES IN HET BOIS DE BOULOGNEMode tekening met pen en waterverf op karton door Jules David (1808 - Parijs - 1892). Gesigneerd links onder. Verso gedateerd/beschreven: ?1877 / 3?me No d?Avril / No 16??. Afmetingen: 29,1 x 23,5 cm.Het aquarel stamt uit een serie van modeontwerpen gemaakt door David voor het Parijse modetijdschrift Le Moniteur de la Mode (?Journal du Grand Monde. Modes, Illustrations, Patrons, Litterature, Beaux-Arts,Theatres??). Hiervan bevinden zich verschillende exemplaren in het Mus?e des Arts D?coratifs (Pavillon de Marsan/Louvre). David was leerling van Duval le Camus en ontving van Le Salon in 1885 een Mention Honorable.Dit werk komt uit de verzameling van Charlotte von Prybram-Gladona.Charlotte, habitu?e van de Beau Monde, werd in 1910 geboren te M?nchen en trouwde op vierentwintigjarige leeftijd met de Weense edelman Albin von Prybram-Gladona. De echtelieden ontmoetten elkaar tijdens de danslessen die Albin, twintig jaar ouder dan Charlotte, nam om fit te blijven (!). Zijn familie onderhield nauwe banden met Einstein, Schweitzer, Rilke en Thomas Mann, terwijl hij Johannes Brahms kende als ??onkel Jo?.Toen Charlotte en Albin vlak voor het uitbreken van de Tweede Wereldoorlog verhuisden naar Parijs, verkochten zij noodgedwongen het leeuwendeel van hun meubelcollectie. Dat stelde hen echter wel in staat zich over te geven aan hun passie voor tekeningen, die beduidend minder plaats innamen. Het echtpaar keerde in 1969 terug naar Oostenrijk en vestigde zich in Salzburg. Albin overleed vijf jaar later, terwijl Charlotte er de hoge leeftijd van 92 bereikte.Prijs: ?985,- (incl. 21% BTW).

        Receipt for 122 Slaves signed by N. J. Bayard

      , 1808. 1808. Very Good. Holograph document. Single half sheet. 20 x 14cm. Written on one side only. Dated July 8th, 1808. Two vertical and horizontal folds. Minor splitting along folds. Receipt for "122 negros" from "Wm Lindsy Jun." Included 71 sold, minus 1 returned by Henry Sadler, 14 died, 33 delivered to Wm Lindsy and 4 remaining "subject to order of Wm Lindsy Jun." Location not given, but possibly Havana. The relation between Bayard and "Lindsy" is unclear. A death rate of about 11% is in line with Coughtry's estimate of an average mortality rate of about 12% on the slaving voyages covered in "The Notorious Triangle." A William Lindsey shows up in that book [at pages 279 and 284] as the captain of slave ships sailing from Bristol, Rhode Island in 1805 and 1807 and delivering their cargos of slaves to Havana. The slaves covered by this receipt may well have been brought from Africa after the Federal ban on importation of slaves into the United States took effect on January 1, 1808.
