De handel en scheepvaart in de Amsterdamse haven sterk afgenomen. De toegangsroutes waren verzand, er waren oorlogen met Frankrijk met Engeland en ook het embargo van Engelse producten op het Europese vaste land, had tot gevolg dat de ooit zo bloeiende haven bijna kon worden gesloten. Pas met de opening van het door koning Willem I geïnitieerde Noordhollandsch Kanaal in 1824 nam het scheepvaartverkeer van en naar Amsterdam weer toe en klimt de stad langzaam weer uit het dal.Prijs: € 2.250,- (excl. lijst).

        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 / 3ème 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 Musée des Arts Décoratifs (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, habituée van de Beau Monde, werd in 1910 geboren te München 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).

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Covenant, commonly called the Old and New Testament: Translated from the Greek. By Charles Thomson.

      Philadelphia: Pr. by Jane Aitken 8vo (22 cm; 8.5"). 4 vols. I: [252] ff. II: [245] ff. III: [222] ff. IV: [240] ff.. 1808 The first-ever translation into English of the Septuagint, the first English translation of the New Testament by an American, and the first Bible printed by an American woman — Jane Aitken. It was also the first translation of the Greek New Testament into English by a native of Ireland, and of course it is the work of a key figure of the American Revolution. Charles Thomson was born in County Derry, Ireland, 29 November 1729 and arrived with his brothers in the American colonies as an orphan in 1740, his mother having died before embarkation and his father having died at sea during the crossing. He studied ancient languages and theology; through the influence of Benjamin Franklin received the mastership of the Latin school in Philadelphia (now the William Penn Charter School); kept records of proceedings at the Treaty of Easton (1757) on behalf of the Indian tribes, and was adopted into the Delaware Indian nation; served as the secretary of every congress from 1774 until 1789; and designed the Great Seal of the United States. An abolitionist and ardent supporter of the Revolutionary cause, he was characterized by a fellow Revolutionary (John Adams) as “the Sam Adams of Philadelphia, the life of the cause of liberty,” and by a conservative (Joseph Galloway) as “one of the most violent of the Sons of Liberty in America.” It was he who informed George Washington of his election to the presidency. => On 4 July 1776 only two signatures were affixed to the unanimously adopted Declaration of Independence — those of John Hancock, president of the Congress, and Charles Thomson, secretary, in order to authenticate the document that had been voted on and approved. Yet by a curious twist of fate (read rather, surely, of a political enemy's knife), when the calligraphic copy that is so well known to every school child was ready shortly after 19 July, authenticator Thomson was not invited to sign it! When he had retired from public life in 1789, Thomson was to turn his interest in the Bible and Greek to the 20-year task of producing this monumentally important work. Its printer was the daughter of Robert Aitken, who had printed the first Bible in English in America. A major edition of the English Bible, this is essential for any Bible collection, not just for collections of American Bibles — though as an American Bible and simple Americanum it has a revered place. Provenance: 19th-century signatures of D. Shields and of John K. Wilson in ink and pencil on title-pages, one of Wilson's signatures dated 1871. Recent quarter brown calf with stone-pattern marbled paper sides; a lightly tanned set with occasional light spotting only. => A solid and very good set.

        Exposicion de los hechos y maquinaciones que han preparado la usurpacion de la corona de España, y los medios que el Emperor de los Franceses ha puesto en obra para realizarla.

      Mallorca: En la imprenta de Melchor Guasp 4to (19.5 cm, 7.625"). 60 pp.. 1808 [bound with] Cevallos, Pedro de. Política peculiar de Buonaparte en quanto a la religion católica.... Palma[, Mallorca]: En la imprenta de Brusi, 1812. 4to. 48 pp. Two significant Mallorcan imprints of the Napoleonic wars by Pedro Cevallos (1764–1840). The Exposicion details the perfidy of Napoleon in Spain, in particular his luring of Ferdinand VII away from Madrid and the placing of Joseph Bonaparte on the throne. This piece proved an effective piece of anti-French propaganda, was widely published, and was translated into Portuguese, English, German, and French. In the Politica peculiar Cevallos reveals Napoleon's attitude toward the Church, and his desire, if he could not absolutely destroy Catholicism, at least to bring it under thorough state subjection. Both of these editions were issued in Mallorca and they are rare: Via NUC Pre-1956 and WorldCat, we trace only one copy of the Exposicion and three of Politica in the U.S. Contemporary acid-stained calf simply gilt with brown leather label on each spine; scattered wormholes and some loss of leather over corners and at base of spine. Endpapers stencilled red and green. Some interior worming, most noticeable in endpapers and first title-page, resulting in loss of parts of letters without loss of sense. Scattered light foxing and a few leaves shallowly dog-eared. Inked ownership inscription on title-pages. All edges speckled red.

This important proclamation by the captive king exhorts all Spaniards to take up arms against the invaders. The discussion on how best to demonstrate loyalty to the king and on how to repel the French in the New World provided the matrix of the independence movements in Latin America.

He cites the @Monitor at length, discusses Napoleon's motives, mentions the British invasion of Rio de la Plata (p. 13), the victualing of British naval vessels at Rio de Janeiro, discusses British relations with France, Portugal, and the rest of Europe, control of the seas, the blockade of the European continent, the necessity of the Portuguese royal family to depart for Brazil, and the European colonial system in the Americas.Soares Franco (1772-1844) was born in Loures, near Lisbon, and died in Lisbon; he was a professor of medicine at Coimbra, a deputy to the Cortes in 1821 and a member of the Royal Council.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 322.

Marbled page ends. Shelf wear to boards. Signature of Frederick York Powell, 1898. Powell was a noted English historian and scholar. Additional signature of L. Kennedy 1905. Fourier written in blue ink on title page. Pencil notes to end blanks in Kennedy's handwriting. Refs: En Francais dans le texte, 218; Arthur Bestor, Backwoods Utopias, p. 13; Barbier IV, 704; Del Bo, Fourier, p. 5; Gimon 82; Goldsmiths'-Kress 19750; Weller II, 264; OCLC: Stanford, Cornell, St. Gallen and Edinburgh; see R. Schaer, G. Claeys, and L.T.Sargent, Utopia, The Search for the Ideal Society in the Western World, 2000, pp. 208 ff. Fourier was a radical thinker who created a plan for an ideal society. He respected the industry and intelligence of children, acknowledged the validity of same sex relationships and androgyny, and coined the term feminism. Theorie des quatres mouvements (Theory of four movements), first edited in 1808 and reworked up to its final draft of 1841, is the first, fundamental work in which Fourier declares his objectives for a world government and economy administered by Passionate Attraction ("a theory of universal Harmony that springs from the ruins of uncertain sciences"), the only possibility, in his terms, of transforming society ("remediating everything from the most scandalous social disorders to poverty"). Going against morals and ideologies that preach poverty and mediocrity, Fourier defends opulence, luxury, gluttony and sensuality for all. He argued that a natural social order exists corresponding to Newton?s ordering of the physical universe and that both evolved in eight ascending periods. In harmony, the highest stage, man?s emotions would be freely expressed. That stage could be created, he contended, by dividing society into phalanges. The phalange, in Fourier?s conception, was to be a cooperative agricultural community bearing responsibility for the social welfare of the individual, characterized by continual shifting of roles among its members. He felt that phalanges would distribute wealth more equitably than under capitalism and that they could be introduced into any political system, including a monarchy. The individual member of a phalange was to be rewarded on the basis of the total productivity of the phalange. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: T. Gillett, 1808. Octavo, fine uncut copy in original publisher's boards (rubbed), with old manuscript label to spine; spine worn and joints neatly repaired. A compassionate and carefully reasoned appeal for clemency, with specific criticism of transportation: 'Phillips points out the cruelty and injustice of transporting female offenders, often for very trifling crimes, to Botany Bay, nominally for a limited period, but in reality for life, no provision being made for their return' (Ferguson).Writing in his capacity as a Sheriff of London and Middlesex, Phillips was gravely concerned with the state of prisoners and describes problems of nutrition, heating, and other abuses of detainees in some detail. Conditions in British prisons and the arbitrary role of gaolers came under increasing scrutiny during the early years of the nineteenth-century, as a direct continuation of the work of the great reformer John Howard. This book prints a range of letters from Phillips to gaolers, magistrates and other officials, so describing the individual misfortunes of those who have earned his pity, including women sentenced to transportation to New South Wales.As a curious footnote to the social history of the era, the author details his expenses, lists members of the Sheriff's fund and itemises disbursements for the year 1808 to the close of March (we learn, for example, that Phillips allowed some £7/15s for 'oatmeal, onions, and leeks, for a daily supply of oatmeal porridge for the female convicts').

        [Delicious Weather, & c.]. [Six Caricatures Relating to Weather]

      1808. first edition. James Gillray's 'Weather' SeriesSatire, Society, Gross Humor and Excess…GILLRAY, James. [Delicious Weather, & c.]. London: H. Humphrey, Feb. 10th, 1808.Six (of seven) fine caricatures illustrating the vagaries of the British weather.Lacking the fifth print 'Fine Bracing Weather' (#557). Small folio (average size 10 x 8 inches; 253 x 203 mm.). Each protected in a window mount. Chemised in a quarter black morocco clamshell case. Very fine and exceptionally rare.Delicious Weather (#553)Dreadful Hot Weather (#554) Sad Sloppy Weather (#555)Raw Weather (#556)Windy Weather (#558)Very Slippy Weather (#559)James Gillray (1756 or 1757 - 1815), was a British caricaturist and printmaker famous for his etched political and social satires, mainly published between 1792 and 1810. The name of Gillray's publisher and print seller, Miss Hannah Humphrey is inextricably associated with that of the caricaturist. Gillray lived with Miss (often called Mrs) Humphrey during the entire period of his fame. It is believed that he several times thought of marrying her, and that on one occasion the pair were on their way to the church, when Gillray said: "This is a foolish affair, methinks, Miss Humphrey. We live very comfortably together; we had better let well alone." Gillray has been called the father of the political cartoon, with his satirical works calling the king, prime ministers and generals to account. Regarded as being one of the two most influential cartoonists, the other being William Hogarth, Gillray's wit and humour, knowledge of life, fertility of resource, keen sense of the ludicrous, and beauty of execution, at once gave him the first place among caricaturists.One of Gillray's prints, "Twopenny Whist," is a depiction of four individuals playing cards, and the character shown second from the left, an ageing lady with eyeglasses and a bonnet, is widely believed to be an accurate depiction of Miss Humphrey.Gillray's prints were exposed in Humphrey's shop window, where eager crowds examined them. One of his later prints, "Very Slippy-Weather", shows Miss Humphrey's shop in St. James's Street in the background. In the shop window a number of Gillray's previously published prints, such as Tiddy-Doll the Great French Gingerbread Maker, Drawing Out a New Batch of Kings; His Man, Talley Mixing up the Dough, a satire on Napoleon's king-making proclivities, are shown in the shop window. While many of Gillray?'s prints evolved from his own designs, still others were based on the suggestions of amateurs (prints commissioned after others?' designs were an important source of income for Gillray). This print was one of a series of seven on the weather initiated by Gillray?'s friend, the Reverend John Sneyd. Sneyd often provided ideas and sketches for the artist?'s elaboration, and was, as well, an intermediary between Gillray and George Canning from the time Canning entered Parliament, in service to the Tory cause. Gillray distinguishes his role by inscribing ?"etch?'d by Js. Gillray,?" rather than crediting himself as ?"inventor.?"While many of Gillray?'s prints evolved from his own designs, still others were based on the suggestions of amateurs (prints commissioned after others?' designs were an important source of income for Gillray).

While he was engaged on it he became mad, although he had occasional intervals of sanity, which he employed on his last work. The approach of madness may have been hastened by his intemperate habits. Gillray died on 1 June 1815 in London, and was buried in St James's churchyard, Piccadilly.Wright & Evans numbers 553-559.

        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 / 3ème 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 Musée des Arts Décoratifs (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, habituée van de Beau Monde, werd in 1910 geboren te München 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).

        Carte Générale de la Terre Napoléon

      Paris: Gravé par Tardieu, 1808. Engraved chart measuring 580 x 850 mm. (sheet size), blank margins slightly rubbed with a few a few closed tears (now expertly repaired, engraving unaffected); otherwise fine overall. Impressive early chart of the South Australian coastline revealing French colonial ambitions for Australia, a result of the survey undertaken during the Baudin expedition in Australian waters during 1802.As the title "Terre Napoleon" strongly implies, the map is tangible proof of French colonial ambitions for Australia. At the time of the Baudin voyage a Napoleonic order existed to conquer the continent, a plan ultimately frustrated by defeat in Europe. The place names engraved on this chart maps are almost entirely in French; interestingly, when the second edition of Baudin's voyage was published in 1824 most of these names were discretely changed into English.Although the map bears the engraved date of 1808 it was included in the atlas volume of the official voyage account published in 1812. A milestone in mapping the continent, this was the first Australian atlas ever published. Although Matthew Flinders charted this coastline at the same time as Baudin, and the two expeditions famously met in Encounter Bay, Flinders' publication was delayed by several years due to his imprisonment at the hands of the French on Mauritius. The matter of precedence remained a bone of contention between the English and the French for some time as here there is no acknowledgement of Flinders' prior discoveries.This map is beautifully enhanced by vignettes of Australian flora and fauna based on drawings by Charles Alexandre Lesueur (featuring kangaroos and sea lions reclining composed beneath an idealised neoclassical figure). Most examples are removed from the atlas and are subsequently folded, however this example is a single unfolded sheet and remains in excellent condition.

        A Collection of Designs for Rural Retreats, as Villas. Principally in the Gothic and Castle styles of Architecture

      London: printed by V. Griffiths, published by J. & T. Carpenter and others, 1808. Quarto. (13 x 10 5/8 inches). Aquatint additional title, 24 aquatint plates and plans, each printed in a single colour: black, dark brown, bistre or blue. Contemporary tree calf gilt, covers with border of single gilt roll, the flat spine divided into six compartments by horizontal fillets, black morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, the others with decorative repeat tooling in gilt with pointillé work (joints rubbed) A beautifully illustrated work, mostly in the neo-Gothic style, from one of the great architectural draughtsmen of the late-18th century. This valuable work begins with an essay by Malton 'Reflections on the necessity and advantage of temporary retirement' - 'The wise, the virtuously independent, who prefer the pure and tranquil retirement of the country, to the foetid joys of the tumultuous city, are they who take the most likely means to enjoy that blessing of life, happiness' (p.ii). This is followed by an introduction in which he recommends the smaller house or 'villa' as against a single very large mansion. 'Many families have been either ruined, or greatly hurt by a madness for building magnificent houses, in town or country, which have too often proved the tombs of the most substantial riches, and have soon passed into the hands of strangers' (p.9). The final section gives explanations of the fine plates, beginning with a definition of the 'rural retreat' or villa: 'A Villa, may be defined, the country retreat of a nobleman or gentleman. Its character is elegance, and its situation should be retired. A Villa should not be of great extent ... It should be capable of accommodating a few chosen friends with ease and comfort; wherefore it should possess every requisite convenience for domestic felicity. Its contour should be uniform, and distinguished by unadorned beauty of form, or by just distribution of chaste ornament' (p.15). James Malton, was the son of Thomas Malton (1726-1801) and the younger brother of Thomas Malton Jr. (1748-1804). The whole family worked as architectural draughtsmen, but also specialised in different but related areas: Malton senior was noted for his work on the theory of perspective and pure geometry, Thomas Malton Jr. became well-known as a teacher (J.M.W. Turner wrote 'My real master was Tom Malton) and for his highly accurate drawings of London, whilst James was evidently keen to secure work as a practising architect: 'Mr. Malton would furnish an estimate of the cost that would be incurred in Building not only any design of this collection, but any other design of his he might make; and would enter into contract for the just execution thereof ' ('advertisement' page following the title) Abbey Life 35; Archer 196:1; Prideaux p.343; RIBA, III, 2015.

With the defence, copied from the original, by permission of General Whitelocke; also all the documents produced on the trial. Vol.I. [ - Vol.II].

General Whitelocke's court-martial was the inevitable consequence of his enormous and disastrous ill-judged, and ill-directed, campaign against Spanish forces in Buenos Aires and the Plate region of South America in May - July 1807. 'Whitelocke returned to England on 7 November 1807, and in January 1808 he was court-martialled at Chelsea. ..... The court martial took seven weeks, and Whitelocke faced four charges covering poor diplomacy, military incompetence, and negotiation of a shameful surrender, each barely relevant to what had happened. He was found guilty and was cashiered. His fault lay in taking on a task beyond his capacity, for which those who appointed him should have shared the blame'. [John D. Grainger in ODNB].

März 1744 in Gröst in Thüringen geb. Sein Vater war Trompeter in der Compagnie des Rittmeisters Rüdiger; da der Name M. in den Akten des Pfarramtes von Gröst nicht weiter vorkommt, so war die Compagnie, welcher der Vater angehörte, wahrscheinlich nur kurze Zeit auf dem Durchmarsche in Gröst. Seine Mutter wird in dem Kirchenbuche (gegen die dortige Gewohnheit) nicht erwähnt. Er besuchte von 1754 an die Kreuzschule in Dresden und bezog 1763 die Universität Leipzig. Im J. 1772 wurde er, von Ernesti empfohlen, Rector in Moskau. In demselben Jahre wurde er dort außerordentlicher, 1774 ordentlicher Professor der alten Litteratur, 1782 erhielt er den Titel eines Collegienrathes. 1784 zu einer Reise nach Sachsen beurlaubt, hinderte ihn eine Krankheit an der Rückreise. So wurde er 1785 Rector der Landesschule zu Meißen und 1789 Professor der griechischen Sprache an der Universität Wittenberg. 1805 wurde er russischer Hofrath und wiederum Professor der classischen Litteratur an der Universität in Moskau, wo er am 14.26. September 1811 starb. Seine bedeutendsten litterarischen Arbeiten sind den Kirchenvätern und dem Neuen Testamente gewidmet; besondere Verdienste erwarb er sich durch die Bekanntmachung zahlreicher Moskauer Handschriften, besonders aus der Bibliothek der heiligen Synode. Nicht selbst herausgegeben hat er den von ihm in dieser Bibliothek entdeckten Codex der Homerischen Hymnen, welcher einen Hymnus an die Demeter und das Fragment eines Hymnus an den Dionysos enthält, die bis dahin unbekannt waren.

Johnson et al., 1808. Eight volumes. 12mo, contemporary full diced brown calf gilt, mottled spines, marbled endpapers and edges. $1600.Early 19th-century edition, handsomely bound.Presenting essays by Addison, Richard Steele, Alexander Pope, Thomas Tickell and others, The Spectator, originally published 1711-14, “appeared daily, and was immensely popular, particularly with the new growing middle-class readership… The papers are mainly concerned with manners, morals, and literature. Their object is ‘to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality” (Drabble, 925-6). Addison helped set the pattern and establish the vogue for the periodical in the 18th-century, and cultivated a receptive audience for the emerging art form of the novel. “The Spectator made a mark in English literature, and fixed a form which was adopted with servile fidelity by many succeeding periodicals till the end of the century” (DNB).

        Ramsgate, with a View of the new Light-House

      London: Published by I. & W. Macgavin, No. 107 New Bond Street, 1808. Coloured aquatint. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of a small brown mark in the lower left corner of plate. Slight creasing through center of image. Image size: 13 1/2 x 20 inches. A pretty view of Ramsgate Pier, from Philippe Loutherbourg's great work "Picturesque Scenery of Great Britain." This impressive aquatint is plate two of Phillip Jacques Loutherbourg's seminal work "Picturesque Scenery of Great Britain." This accomplished text is comprised of six large aquatint views engraved after Loutherbourg's acclaimed paintings. The work, which was first engraved in 1801 by J. C. Stadler, was later re-engraved in 1808 by J. Hill. Reminiscent of Rowlandson's superb paintings, this image depicts the stormy docks of Ramsgate pier. While a group of hardy sailors converse at ease, a party of three figures are battered by the fierce winds that beat the shoreline. The son of a court painter in Darmstadt, the versatile artist Philippe Jacques Loutherbourg was born in Fulda, Germany and was a pupil of J. H. Tischbein and Carle Vanloo and Francis Casanova the elder in Paris. His romantic landscapes, battle scenes, portraits, and biblical subjects were highly esteemed and lauded by influential colleagues such as Diderot. He frequently exhibited at the Salon and became a venerated member of the Académie Royale in 1767. In 1771, he moved to England, where he was employed as the principal scenery designer at London's Drury Lane Theatre. His creative and minutely detailed sets revolutionized the genre of scene painting, and he soon began dabbling in costume design. Loutherbourg once again astounded contemporaries in 1782 with his pioneering invention of the "Eidophusikon," a novel variety of moving panorama that was accompanied by music. His substantial and varied oeuvre also included book illustrations and a series of aquatints of British scenery that was published in 1801 and 1805. Aside from a brief trip to Switzerland in 1782, he remained in London for the duration of his life and became heavily engrossed in mysticism.

        Exposicion de los hechos y maquinaciones que han preparado la usurpacion de la corona de España, y los medios que el Emperor de los Franceses ha puesto en obra para realizarla.

      Mallorca: En la imprenta de Melchor Guasp 4to (19.5 cm, 7.625"). 60 pp.. 1808 [bound with] Cevallos, Pedro de. Política peculiar de Buonaparte en quanto a la religion católica.... Palma[, Mallorca]: En la imprenta de Brusi, 1812. 4to. 48 pp. Two significant Mallorcan imprints of the Napoleonic wars by Pedro Cevallos (1764?-1840). The Exposicion details the perfidy of Napoleon in Spain, in particular his luring of Ferdinand VII away from Madrid and the placing of Joseph Bonaparte on the throne. This piece proved an effective piece of anti-French propaganda, was widely published, and was translated into Portuguese, English, German, and French. In the Politica peculiar Cevallos reveals Napoleon's attitude toward the Church, and his desire, if he could not absolutely destroy Catholicism, at least to bring it under thorough state subjection. Both of these editions were issued in Mallorca and they are rare: Via NUC Pre-1956 and WorldCat, we trace only one copy of the Exposicion and three of Politica in the U.S. Contemporary acid-stained calf simply gilt with brown leather label on each spine; scattered wormholes and some loss of leather over corners and at base of spine. Endpapers stencilled red and green. Some interior worming, most noticeable in endpapers and first title-page, resulting in loss of parts of letters without loss of sense. Scattered light foxing and a few leaves shallowly dog-eared. Inked ownership inscription on title-pages. All edges speckled red.

        A Journal of the Voyages and Travels of a Corps of Discovery, under the command of Captain Lewis and Captain Clarke [sic.] of the army of the United States, from the mouth of the River Missouri through the interior parts of North America to the Pacific Ocean, during the years 1804, 1805, & 1806. containing an authentic relation of the most interesting transactions during the expedition: a description of the country: and an account of its inhabitants, soil, climate, curiosities and vegetable and animal productions

      London: J. Budd, 1808. Octavo. (8 x 5 1/8 inches). iv, 381pp. Later half olive calf over marbled paper covered boards, spine in six compartments with raised bands, dark brown morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt The first English edition of the first substantial published account of the Lewis and Clark expedition. The first British edition of the Gass narrative, printed in a large and elegant format as opposed to the American edition. The 2pp. introduction by the English publisher, Budd, is dated 18 April 1808 and makes virtue of the fact that Gass "appears to have been of inferior rank in the Expedition; but, for those who wish to know the unadorned truth, that circumstance is not likely to be lamented. From such facts as he records, the reader will be able to form a much more correct idea of the real state of the country, than he would from a narrative, written under the influence of a desire to establish or confirm certain pre-conceived positions; not to mention another influence, too generally prevalent in America, namely, that of self-interest, for which there may be such ample scope for indulgence, in giving an account of countries, immediately adjoining that of a nation of land-jobbers." Because of the delay in the publication of the official account, Gass' journal was the first to appear, and as such was eagerly taken up by readers starved for information about Lewis and Clark. Gass was a sergeant who, by order of Lewis and at the insistence of Thomas Jefferson, kept a journal of the expedition's activities, and this book is closely based on that document. "Patrick Gass was a rough reliable frontier soldier when he joined the Lewis and Clark expedition. He was made a sergeant when Sergeant Floyd died. He writes a terse soldier's narrative, exasperating in its brevity, but always with rugged honesty. His story was for many years the only true account of the expedition - the first real information the nation had of the Oregon country and of the Louisiana purchase. It is a work of primary importance" (Webster A. Jones). Field 595; Graff 1517; Howes G77; Literature of the Lewis and Clark Expedition 3.2; Sabin 26741; Wagner-Camp 6:2.

        United States of N[or]th. America; carte des Etats-Unis de l'Amerique Septentrionale. Copiée et Gravée sur celle d'Arrowsmith. Corrigée et considérablement augmentée d'après les renseignements les plus authentiques par P.F. Tardieu, Graveur, Editor-propriétaire

      Paris: Tardieu, 1808. Engraved map with period outline hand colouring, on four folded sheets, each dissected into 60 sections and linen-backed, as issued, with the original chemise and box. Fine condition. An extraordinary copy of a rare, separately-issued, French edition of one of the great large-scale maps of the early United States: this issue the first to name Michigan Territory. Based on the first state of Aaron Arrowsmith's map of the same name, Tardieu's improved edition depicts the United States as it began to expand into its continental destiny. In addition to the content presented from Arrowsmith's map, Tardieu made corrections to the mouth of the Mississippi, the St. Lawrence River and Maine. He also added an inset version of Andrew Ellicott's Plan for the City of Washington. By 1808, the new states of Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio had been added to the original thirteen. Even as the new settlers poured into these areas, new territories were being organized. This updated edition from the first of 1802 reflects those changes. The most noteworthy change is the addition of Michigan Territory, which was organized in June 1805, making this one of the earliest appearances of Michigan Territory on a printed map. The map also names Indiana Territory and notes the early township surveys in Ohio. The detail in the Upper Mississippi River Valley is also of note. Phillips, A List of Maps of America , p.876; Karpinski, Bibliography of the Printed Maps of Michigan p. 207.
