        Proofs of the Corruption of Gen. James Wilkinson, and of his Connexion with Aaron Burr.

      Philadelphia: Wm. Hall, Jun. & Geo. W. Pierie, 1809. - 8vo., (8 7/8 x 5 ¼ inches). (Lightly and evenly toned throughout). Contemporary half tan calf, marbled boards, the spine in six compartments with five raised bands, black morocco gilt lettering piece in one and decorated in the rest (extremities a bit worn). First edition. This contemporary account is one of the best-documented works on Burr's plot to seize Texas and other Spanish territory west of the Mississippi. It is an indispensable volume, filled with many primary documents, including material relating to Texas. In it, Clark strives to show that Wilkinson was in the pay of Spain and an accomplice of Burr in the treason. According to A. P. Whitaker, it is "a remarkably accurate account of Wilkinson's dealing with the Spaniards. All that the book lacks is.the proofs. These were in the Spanish archives, and have since been found there." Clark came to New Orleans in 1786, where he achieved prominence and became connected with Gen. Wilkinson, but later broke with him. "Gives much evidence of the General's treachery" (Streeter Sale III: 1694). Howes C431 ("aa"); Sabin 13265.

        BRINDES PER ON DISNA' ALLA CASSINNA DI POMM El di' 14 Mag 1809.

      s.l. s.e. (1809). In-16 (mm. 172x105), cartoncino muto coevo, pp, 12. Rarissima "prima edizione" di questo "brindes" che è contenuto nella ?"Raccolta completa delle poesie inedite di Carlo Porta?", stampata a Lugano nel 1860. Cfr. Parenti ?"Prime ediz. italiane?", p. 412 - Medici "Vecchie osterie milanesi" (Como, 1933), p. 87-89: ?"Alcuni studiosi milanesi (1) non ritengono del grande poeta lombardo questa lirica, che accese tante dispute sull?'opportunismo politico del Porta.. E qui è bene far preceder una paginetta di storia. L?'Austria nel 1809 pretese di sorprendere Napoleone movendogli d?'improvviso duplice guerra, sul Danubio e in Italia (il Vicerè Eugenio Beauharnais fu spedito sull?'Isonzo contro l?'arciduca Giovanni, avendone la peggio). A Wagram invece le forze unite di Napoleone ebbero il sopravvento ed operarono miracoli. Si improvvisarono allora feste e banchetti. A un pranzo alla "Cascina dei Pomi", nel sobborgo di Milano (scrive il Barbiera), allora famosa per le gite amorose ed epicuree, Carlo Porta lesse un brindisi che ritrae quelle paure, quegli sbigottimenti all?'idea di tornare alle sevizie già patite sotto gli Austro Russi vittoriosi dei francesi (nel 1799) ed è ebbro di giubilo, per la vittoria?". Il brindisi finisce con un osanna a Napoleone ?"Viva al nost Imperator!.. - Sconosciuto a Orlando Cecco e a Bezzola. (1) Giuseppe Bernardoni, eccellente poeta e amico di Carlo Porta, secondo Gaetano Crespi e il Salvioni, sarebbe l?'autore di questo brindisi. Pure Dante Isella lo attribuisce al Bernardoni. Con uniformi arross. e qualche lieve fiorit. ma complessivam. discreto esemplare.

        ROMANTIC TALES

      New-York: Printed for M. & W. Ward, 149, Pearl-street,. 1809. 12mo, two volumes: pp. [1-5] 6347 [348-350: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank]; [1-5] 6-333 [334: blank],. nineteenth-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards.. Calf worn at edges, boards scuffed, outer joints tender, some foxing. to text block, a good set overall. (#110116). First U.S. edition. Lewis's Gothic sampler, interspersed with nightmare and graveyard verse, "contains examples of oriental, Germanic, medieval, and monastic Gothicism in both the terrific and horrific modes. Robert D. Spector observes that although these tales are pure Gothic, Lewis 'had toned down the ghastly, supernatural elements which had made THE MONK a sensational, although infamous, success.' Yet, Lewis's fondness for an ugly macabre as well as a sadistic supernatural is still very clearly in evidence. In fact, Poe's title, 'Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque,' could serve as a title for the Gothic variety of Lewis's collection. As may be judged from the modern reprintings of several stories, each of the prose tales is long enough to qualify as a Gothic novella. In their order, the tales are: MISTRUST: OR, BLANCH AND OSBRIGHT, A FEUDAL ROMANCE (medieval Gothic adapted from a drama by von Kleist, THE FAMILY OF SCHROFFENSTEIN); THE ANACONDA (an East Indian story using the natural horror associated with a serpent); THE FOUR FACARDINS (a Gothic Marchen with touches of the Schauerromantik); MY UNCLE'S GARRET WINDOW (domestic or neighborhood Gothic whose theme bears comparison with Hawthorne's story of connubial espionage, 'Wakefield'); AMORASSAN: OR, THE SPIRIT OF THE FROZEN OCEAN (orientalized Gothic containing strong reminders of Beckford's VATHEK). Although THE ANACONDA has a quality of cruel horror which might have appealed to Ambrose Bierce and THE FOUR FACARDINS is overrun with Schauerromantik effects, the story which seems the most conventionally Gothic and which bears the closest resemblance to the repellent excitement of THE MONK is MISTRUST: OR, BLANCHE AND OSBRIGHT." - Frank, The First Gothics 247. ROMANTIC TALES was a very popular collection which was more than once reprinted in its entirety and favorite tales were published sometimes separately, sometimes with other pieces by Lewis, and sometimes even with pieces not from his pen. Summers, pp. 484-86. Block, The English Novel 1740-1850, p. 139. Shaw and Shoemaker 17909. Bleiler (1978), p. 124. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992).

        LE KAIRE. Vue d'une ancienne mosquée située près de Bâb el Nasr (E. M. Vol. I Pl. 28), planche dessinée par Dutertre, gravée par Delignon, eau-forte par Réville & Normand

      Imprimerie Impériale 1809 - - Imprimerie Impériale, Paris 1809-1828, 53,5 x 70,5 cm. - Gravure originale in plano à l'eau-forte, non rognée, extraite de l''Edition Impériale' de la Description de l'Egypte ou Recueil des observations et recherches faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition française, publié par les ordres de Sa Majesté l'Empereur Napoléon le Grand. Réalisée entre 1802 et 1830 et publiée entre 1809 et 1828, elle fut tirée à 1000 exemplaires offerts aux institutions. Papier vergé au filigrane 'Egypte ancienne et moderne' visible par transparence.Cette gravure présente une superbe vue d'une ancienne mosquée située près de Bâb el Nasr. Au premier plan, différents groupes de personnages présentent des scènes de la vie quotidienne. On y voit notamment des soldats français, une vendeuse assise au milieu de ses paniers, un personnage guidant des dromadaires, etc.Infimes piqûres marginales affectant très légèrement la planche, un léger manque angulaire en marge gauche, légère décharge d'encre au dos, sinon excellent état de fraîcheur et de conservation. La monumentale première édition de la Description de l'Egypte en 13 volumes comportait 892 planches dont 72 coloriées, parmi lesquelles 9 volumes concernaient l'Antiquité. Les autres volumes traitaient de l'Histoire Naturelle et de l'Egypte moderne car Napoléon Bonaparte avait emmené avec lui une commission de savants de toutes disciplines si bien que, disait-on, dans sa description était emmagasiné 'le plus riche musée de l'Univers'. Cet ouvrage fut rédigé en partie par la baron Dominique Vivant-Denon, avant que ce dernier soit nommé directeur général du Musée Napoléon au Louvre. Plus de 80 artistes et 400 graveurs furent engagés pour ce projet titanesque. Les dimensions des planches exceptionnellement grandes nécessitèrent la création d'une presse spéciale et d'un meuble spécifique pour les conserver.! [Attributes: First Edition]

Die Decorationen werden sich eben so, als in der großen Oper zu Paris, in einem Augenblick verändern. Das Schauspiel wird durch einen Tanz auf dem strammen Seile von einer mechanischen Figur, die alle Pas, welche die Tanzkunst erfordert, macht, beschlossen. Se.

        Voyage autour du Monde , pendant les années 1790, 1791, et 1792... auquel on a joint des recherches sur les Terres Australes de Drake, et un examen critique du voyage de Roggeween

      Paris: Courcier, 1809. Five volumes, octavo, and a quarto atlas; contemporary French quarter calf and papered boards, flat spines banded in gilt with double orange labels, a beautiful set. The first French commercial voyage to the Northwest coast. The first French commercial voyage to the Northwest coast of America, and the second French circumnavigation - some twenty-five years after Bougainville's.Returning from Bengal in 1788, Marchand had come across the voyager Portlock who told him of the lucrative fur trade between the Northwest coast and China. 'The trading firm of Baux in Marseilles underwrote a commercial expedition and purchased and fitted out the copper-sheathed ship Solide, which sailed in December 1790 for the Pacific via Cape Horn. At the Marquesas, Marchand took possession of two islands, Uapou and Nukuhiva (which he named Ile Baux), not knowing of Ingraham's visit on the Hope two months earlier... At the Northwest coast he obtained a large cargo of furs, sailed south to Hawaii, through the Marianas, and reached Macao...'This was a successful voyage but a commercial failure. Marchand was unable to sell his furs, and upon his return to France they were impounded by a revolutionary faction and eventually perished. The firm of Baux ultimately lost two-thirds of its capital in the venture...' (Forbes).Nevertheless, Marchand had proved that in times of peace, the French could compete successfully in the Pacific trade. As Marchand died in 1793, the work was actually written by Count Charles Pierre Fleurieu, himself an explorer. It includes a good account of discoveries along the American coast, from Cortes in 1537 to Malaspina in 1790, including records of Drake, Juan de Fuca, Cook, La Pérouse, Meares, Colnett, Portlock and Dixon. Considerable text is devoted to descriptions of natural history specimens collected en route. The final volume contains a critical analysis of Roggeween's voyage, and the engraved charts include five of Alaska and the Northwest coast, four of Marquesan interest and one of Hawaii, while the China Sea chart contains important corrections. Lada-Mocarski calls it "a very important and authoritative work for the history of the Northwest coast".O'Reilly and Reitman note: 'Relation du voyage du Solide, rédigée par Claret de Fleurieu. Fleurieu, qui ignorait l'existence du manuscrit de Marchand, n'avait entre les mains que le journal de bord de Prosper Chanal, capitaine en second du Solide, auquel il ajouta, au cours de la rédaction, les observations de Claude Roblet, chirurgien du bateau. Le voyage de Marchand forme ici le noyau d'un vaste travail de compilation, où les observations géographiques, nautiques, ethnographiques et zoologiques. sont confrontées avec celles des voyages espagnols (Mendaña, Quiros), hollandais (Roggeween), anglais et américains (Cook, Ingraham, Roberts, Hergest)...'.The book was published in Paris in 1798-1800 in two forms, as four quarto volumes, the last an atlas of plates, or as six volumes, the first five the text in octavo and the sixth the same atlas as the quarto edition. In 1809 the octavo version was reissued in the form offered here, with the simple substitution of a new title-page (Forbes cites a re-issue of the quarto rather than the octavo version, perhaps in error).

        The Friend; A literary, moral, and political weekly paper, excluding personal and party politics, and the events of the day. Conducted by S.T. Coleridge, of Grasmere, Westmorland. FIRST EDITION.

      Penrith: printed and published by J. Brown. 1809-10 Revenue stamps in each issue. Contemp. half red sheep, gilt spine, marbled boards.Wise 20. Parts 1-20, June 1 1809 - January 4 1810, and the 16pp 'supernumerary essay', dated January 11, 1810. 336pp continuously paginated. Coleridge was responsible for almost the entirety of the publication, which was formed of essays and articles drawn from the author's widespread knowledge of history, law, philosophy, politics, and literary criticism. Impressive in its breadth of subject matter, the publication was nonetheless inaccessible to many readers, and despite having over 500 subscribers, failed to attain financial viability. Publication ceased in spring 1810, though the work was considered important by Coleridge's peers, and a second edition appeared in 1818.
