1809. Used w/defects - please see below for details and photos. JOHN ADAMS-GENERAL BENJAMIN LINCOLN'S COPIES (English) (Acquired From Heritage Auction Galleries - please see photo documentation) John Adams, Correspondence with original parts as issued. Lacks part 5 and lacks part 10 pages 533-576 but has signature of General Benjamin Lincoln and Lincoln's son Theodore Lincoln who managed the General's Library. A rare collection. Much toned and partially torn at times, as well as foxing throughout. This set was not well cared for but the signature of General Lincoln makes this set especially meaningful. The set was published by Everett and Munroe of Boston in 1809 (a first edition) so it is likely that this particular set may have been picked up "hot off the press" so to speak. The compendium of the collection of these documents were extrapolated from the prior years Boston Patriot newspapers regarding John Adams submitted correspondence while in the capacity of President, who also was a close personal friend of General Lincoln. General Benjamin Lincoln fought under General George Washington and accepted the surrender of the British General Cornwallis at Yorktown after being forced to surrender himself and his troops earlier to the British. Lincoln was a staunch supporter of the fight for freedom and the education of children, setting up a school for educating children in his home in the town of Hingham, Massachusetts. His family were one of the first founders of Hingham and this particular publication of John Adams papers would have been a very keen interest to General Linc … [Click Below for Full Description]

She was one of the most vivid and hotly discussed literary figures of her generation. She began her career with a precocious volume of poems. She collected Irish tunes, for which she composed the words, thus setting a fashion adopted with signal success by Thomas Moore. A reading of Germaine de Staël's novel Corinne (1807), set in Italy, convinced Owenson to write the novelized tract that Ida of Athens became. In her preface to it, she described Woman, or, Ida of Athens (1809) as an attempt to delineate perfected feminine character in its natural state and Greece as the perfect setting for doing so--although the final scenes (with Ida suddenly enriched) take place in London. In addition to its feminist concerns, the book includes long philosophical discussions on such Romantic topics as education, civil and religious freedom, and the moral influence of natural beauty.

The first institution in Malta to actually call itself a bank was the Anglo-Maltese Bank, established on 23 June 1809, nine years after the British took control of Malta. This large printed circular spells out all of the particulars involved in the formation of this bank. Principles of the Establishment, Amount of capital and shares issued, the qualifications of the bank's president and its Directors, deposits of bullion, and so forth, are all delineated. The second leaf primarily concerns itself with listing the names or entities holding bank shares. We can not locate any surviving examples of this form.

MALTHUS, Thomas Robert
George Town [D.C.]: J. Milligan, at J. March's bookstore. R. Chew Weightman, printer, 1809. 1809 1st ed Thomas Malthus Essay on Principle of Population Political EconomicsThomas Malthus was an 18th-century British philosopher and economist famous for his ideas about population growth. He is best known for his book 'An essay on the principle population.' He developed what is now referred to as the Malthusian growth model, an exponential formula used to forecast population growth. Here in 'An essay on the principle population' Malthus "laid down his famous principle that population increases in a geometrical, and subsistence only in an arithmetical ratio, and argued that population is necessarily limited by the 'checks' of vice and misery" (DNB).Associated with Darwin, whose theory of natural selection was influenced by Malthus' analysis of population growth, "Malthus is arguably the most misunderstood and misrepresented economist of all time." (Landsburg) He simply argued that people would limit their growth before they found a way to increase food supply to match natural population growth.This is the first American edition of 'An essay on the principle population' printed in George Town.

BERTRAND, C. F.
Paris: Brunot-Labbe, 1809. First Edition of a seminal French study of perfume. A very good, uncut and partially unopened copy of C. F. Bertrand's vade mecum and analytical study of perfume and cosmetics, modeled after earlier manuals. According to perfume historian Edwin T. Morris, "The year 1809 saw the publication of Le Parfumeur Impérial by C. F. Bertrand. There was no longer a royal perfumer, but the actual substance of Bertrand's book contained material similar to that discussed by eighteenth-century handbooks, such as how to make pomades of hyacinths, roses, jonquils, and mixed flowers (pommades de pot-pourri). Bertrand also contributed to the raging controversies by suggesting his own recipe for eau de cologne." Bertrand also considers perfumery and the production of cosmetics from a medical point of view, recommending certain recipes as not only aesthetically pleasing but beneficial to one's health. An unsophisticated copy of a substantive and important manual, well-indexed and appended with a glossary of terms. Complete with the sometimes-lacking errata leaf. Octavo, 215 x 140 x 40 mm. xiv, 402, [2] pp. Contemporary publisher's pink pastepapers wrappers, printed spine label reading Le | parfumeur | impérial. Covers dog-eared, spine creased, upper tail joint starting. Interior: Minor foxing and staining, some leaves at beginning and end dog-eared, a few modern bookseller's notes in pencil to endleaves.Provenance: Donated by ABAA bookseller Ben Kinmont to PBA Galleries Benefit Auction of 8 February 2015, lot 156, knocked down to Philadelphia Rare Books and Manuscript … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boards very slightly bowed and a little toned to edges, dust toning to book block edges, foxing and occasional dampstains and marks to contents, small tears to plate I in vol. I and plate I in vol. II, small loss to fore edge of pp. 303-4 in vol. III; a very good, handsome, set. An attractive collected edition of Cook's three voyages, printed from the text of the original editions of 1773 to 1784. Described by Forbes as "a bibliographical riddle", the work appears to have been issued as part of a larger series, with the first volume reading "end of the second volume" on the final leaf, as listed in Forbes. The folding plates are predominantly line drawings based on illustrations from the original editions, often with subtle alterations to the images. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilisation and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great so … [Click Below for Full Description]

Officio Topografico dello Stato
Acquaforte e bulino, 1809-10. Grande carta murale in 4 fogli, da unire. Piccoli restauri e abrasioni al foglio 1 (in alto a sinistra), per il resto in ottimo sttao di conservazione. Si tratta della prima carta ufficiale della Sicilia, ovvero prodotta da un ente di Stato: l'Officio Topografico dello Stato Maggiore, che si legge nel cartiglio. L'ente, istituito nel 1807, era preposto al rilevamento e alla realizzazione di carte topografiche e militari. Nel 1808 fu approvata la proposta di realizzazione di una carta topografica basata su un nuovo rilievo, sotto la guida dell'astronomo Piazzi, direttore dell'Osservatorio astronomico di Palermo. Contrasti tra i civili e i militari anche sulle finalità della carta portarono ad abbandonare l'idea di una nuova carta rilevata sul terreno, e si preferì una "riconoscenza militare del regno" appoggiandosi alla cartografia già esistente, cioè alla carta di Schmettau del 1719-21. Così, nel giro di un paio di anni fu possibile allestire una carta dell'isola in quattro fogli, a una scala leggermente maggiore di quella delle carte a stampa di Schmetteau. Di queste riprende anche il sistema di coordinate, che viene solo marginalmente corretto da una indicazione che compare sul primo foglio, ove in alto al centro è indicato un segmento del meridiano 31, spostato verso oriente di circa 5 primi, con la scritta "Merdiano corretto". La carta fu incisa sotto la guida di Tommaso Lomastro, capo incisore dell'Officio, da Pietro Weingher, Ferdinando Morghen e da Raffaele Lombardo per i caratteri. Il grande cartiglio con il titolo del primo foglio è un … [Click Below for Full Description]

WICKRAM, Jörg).
Heidelberg, Mohr u. Zimmer, 1809. Drucktitel, 371, (3) S. Mit 25 Original-Radierungen in Holzschnittmanier von Ludwig Emil Grimm nach den Holzschnitten der Erstausgabe von 1557. Interimsumschlag mit gedrucktem Rückenschild in modernem Pappschuber (Umschlag fleckig, Rückenbezug gebrochen u. an Kopf u. Fuß mit Fehlstellen). Seltene erste Ausgabe. Clemens Brentano hat diesen frühen bürgerlichen Roman des Elsässers Jörg Wickram, den er als wertvolles kulturhistorisches Dokument schätzte, in behut- und einfühlsamer Weise aus dem Frühneuhochdeutschen der Erstausgabe von 1557 ins Hochdeutsche übersetzt und bearbeitet. Er ging davon aus, daß der frühneuhochdeutsche Text einem ungeschulten Leser nicht mehr zugemutet werden könne, daß aber eine hochdeutsche Bearbeitung Kolorit und Stimmung des alten Volksromans bewahren solle. Mit dem sicheren Gefühl des Dichters für die Möglichkeiten der Sprache konzentrierte sich Brentano vor allen Dingen auf die Erneuerung der grammatisch-syntaktischen Formen, ohne den Wortschatz allzusehr zu verändern; nur gelegentliche inhaltliche Wiederholungen hat er weggelassen oder gekürzt. Die bemerkenswerten Illustrationen, die bei Mallon u.a. als Holzschnitte bezeichnet werden, sind jedoch Radierungen des damals 18-jährigen E. L. Grimm, der die Holzschnitte des Originals in die gerade von ihm erlernte graphische Technik umgesetzt hat. - Goed. II, 465, 19 u. VI, 60, 17; Mallon 33; Rümann 133. - Unbeschnitten. Stockfleckig.

1809. Philadelphia: Published by C. and A. Conrad and Co. Philadelphia; Conrad, Lucas and Co. Baltimore, 1809. Third Edition. Two 12mo vols. xiv, 258; 218pp. Full tree calf, leather spine labels. Ex-library with usual marks; bindings worn, dry, joints weak, one board separating; fair. An important association copy, given by Robert Fulton to his Quaker friend, patron, and portrait sitter, Joseph Bringhurst, Jr. Joel Barlow's The Columbiad is an epic poem of the history of America. An amplification of the author's poem "Vision of Columbus," it was first published in 1807 (see BAL 906). Barlow dedicated the book to his close friend, engineer and inventor, Robert Fulton. Fulton financed the book's publication, one of the costliest for its time. Fulton's portrait painting of Barlow served as the basis of the frontispiece of the first edition of The Columbiad. Further, Fulton's sketches and designs for that edition were the inspiration for its eleven engravings. At the head of both title pages of this third edition of The Columbiad is the following inscription: "From my friend Robt. Fulton, 2 Mo. 18th 1809 [palimpsest]." The palimpsests suggest the name of "J. Bringhurst." They are dated in the Quaker manner. Joseph Bringhurst, Jr. (1767-1834) was Fulton's friend and patron, a prominent Philadelphia Quaker. Fulton painted Bringhurst's portrait in 1786. The palimpsests indicate Robert Fulton presented this copy of The Columbiad to Bringhurst. In turn, Bringhurst documented this gift from Fulton. In the original 1807 dedication to Robert Fulton, Barlow wrote that his poem was: ".or … [Click Below for Full Description]

JONATHAN WILLIAMS.Autograph Letter Signed, to Richard Whiley, December 1, 1809, New York. 2 pp., 7¾ x 10 in.Excerpts: "In compliance with your verball request I sit down to give you information respecting the Artillery that may be mounted on the different Works in this City & Harbour." "The Platform at Ellis Island has long been ready to receive twenty Pieces of the heaviest metal on Carriages similar to those at Fort Columbus. "The mortar Battery on Bedlows Island is finished in part & might be ready to receive mortars of any Caliber in a short notice, nothing but the removal of Earth & the platform being necessary; but the work itself is not far enough advanced to receive any Guns. "The Castle on the point of Governors Island has eleven french 36s mounted, & Fifteen more have long been expected to arrive from the Columbian Foundery. These 26 may be ready for action as soon as they can be mounted. Although it would be prudent to avoid putting Guns on the second tier until the arches are dry yet upon an emergency 16 thirty two pounders might be placed there immediately.

ROWLANDSON, Thomas, artist
London: , 1809. A Fine Original Thomas Rowlandson Watercolor Drawing ROWLANDSON, Thomas, artist. [Three Men Seated in a Tavern]. [London], 1809. Pen, ink and watercolor drawing (6 15/16 x 9 3/8 inches; 176 x 238 mm.). Signed and dated at lower left. The scene depicts three gentleman seated at a tavern table. They are being waited on by a serving wench. A typical 'Rowlandson dog' can be seen on the floor by the table begging for food! Thomas Rowlandson (1756-1827) was an English artist and caricaturist of the Georgian Era, noted for his political satire and social observation. A prolific artist, he also wrote satirical verse under the pen name of Peter Pindar. Like other contemporary pre-Victorian caricaturists like James Gillray, he too depicted characters in bawdy postures and he also produced erotica which was censured by the 1840s. His caricatures included those of people in power such as the Duchess of Devonshire, William Pitt and Napoleon Bonaparte. "We are told of his aimless wandering about the country, of his indolence and dissipation, of his gambling and high living, and of the reprobation with which his habits of life were regarded by the good people of his day, but undoubtedly it is to these things that we are indebted for the marvelous record which he left of the England he knew, perhaps the most important contribution to our knowledge of the manners of the Englishman during the extraordinary years from 1780 to 1825" (Grolier Club).
