        Trattao Di Vaccinazione com osservazioni sul Giavardo e Vajuolo Pecorino.

      Milan, Dalla tipografia Mussi, 1809, 4, 223, (2) pp., 2 engr. vignettes and 4 hand colored folding paltes, 1 Portrait of Edward Jenner, in contemp. half leather binding fine copy. First edition - fine copy of this important work on vaccination of smallpox, by Luigi Sacco (Varese, 1769 - Milano, 1836). He was Italy's first and most enthusiastic supporter of vaccination, and by 1809, 1,400,000 persons had been vaccinated by Sacco or his associates. The discoverer of this vaccination was Edward Jenner (1749-1823), a well-known English surgeon. In the 18th century smallpox was a widespread disease and occasional outbreaks of special intensity resulted in a very high death rate. Jenner discovered that a person who had suffered a attack of cowpox, a relatively harmless disease that could be contracted from cattle, could not take smallpox. So he started to inoculate people with cowpox to avoid them from suffering the much more severe and often lethal results from smallpox. This procedure rapidly proved its value. The Italian physician and surgeon Luigi Sacco, studied under Spallanzani and Scarpa, found a spontaneous cowpox stock in the neighborhood of Vares in Lombardy and he used this stock to inoculate himself and many others. He became the initiator of this vaccination in Italy on a large scale. As a general director of vaccination of the government he had succeeded in vaccinating a million and half people by 1809 when he published this work. Shortly after this publication, a French and a German edition appeared. Sacco became one of the major advocates of cowpox vaccination and his stock was, via Jean de Caro in Vienna, sent to Baghdad, where the first vaccinations of the East Indies were given.This copy on extra fine paper is printed in a beautiful typography with some finely engraved medallions on title by Bordigna, engraved medallion portrait of Dr. Sacco by G. Benaglia and 4 very detailed engravings depicting the smallpox and cowpox as they appear on both animals as on humans. Due to the beautifully hand-colouring of the illustrations, they give a very lifelike picture of this life-threatening disease of the 18th and 19th century. The frontispiece portrait of Edward Jenner by John Raphael Smith depicting Jenner in three-quarter length, nearly full-face, standing against a tree with right arm on branch in background, a view of Berkeley with cows and a milkmaid, is engraved by P. Anderloni.Heirs of Hippocrates No. 1245 Waller 8375 DSB, 12, p. 57 Whitcomb, Immunology to 1800, 3406

Antoine Ignace Melling, who was born at Karlsruhe in 1763 and died in Paris in 1831, studied painting and architecture. At the age of nineteen years he went to the Levant via the Archipelago, staying at Constantinople for several years. There he was introduced to the Sultan's sister by the Danish ambassador. She wished to renovate her palace at Ortakeui, and in 1795 Melling was appointed as architect. Melling was given the freedom of Selim III's palaces, including the Harem, and he produced several drawings of these properties. After completing a number of building projects for Selim, Melling returned to Paris in about 1803, where, in 1804 he issued a prospectus for the Voyage pittoresque. Publication eventually began in 1809, issuing over a number of years thirteen livraisons, being completed by 1819. The outstanding success of the exhibitions of the paintings on which the Voyage pittoresque was based earned Melling the title of painter to the Empress Josephine.

        Recherches sur le système nerveux en général et sur celui du cerveau en particulier; mémoire présenté à l'Institut de France, le 14 mars 1808.

      - Paris: F. Schoell; H. Nicolle, 1809, 4°, (4), VII, (1), 277, (1) pp., 1 von J.G. Prêtre gezeichnete und von Bouquet gestochene Tafel, Halblederband d.Zt.; minimal fleckiges feines Expl. First Edition! Franz Joseph Gall (1758-1828) and Johann Caspar Spurzheim's (1776-1832) first joint publication was this memoir on the anatomy of the brain and nervous system, which they submitted to a committee of the Institut de France (chaired by psychiatrist Philippe Pinel) in 1808. In 1810 the Recherches was republished as part of the first volume of Gall and Spurzheim's Anatomie et physiologie du système nerveux (1810-12), the work that introduced the theory of localization of cerebral function. "Beginning in 1800, with the assistance of Spurzheim, Gall made a number of important neuro-anatomical discoveries . . . The unifying theme in his neuroanatomical work was the conception of the nervous system as a hierarchically ordered series of separate by interrelated ganglia designed on a unified plan. Higher structures developed from lower ones, receiving reinforcement from other nerve pathways along the way. . . [Gall] also discovered the origins of the first eight cranial nerves and traced the fibers of the medulla oblongata to the basal ganglia. In the cerebellum he described the systems of fibers now known as projection and commissural. In the cerebral cortex he finally established the contralateral decussation of the pyramids and drew attention to the detailed anatomy of the convolutions. Gall and Spurzheim's investigations gave considerable impetus to the study of neuroanatomy, and both their findings and their general conceptions proved very important when they were later integrated with an evolutionary view of the nervous system and with the neuron theory" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). McHenry, in Garrison's History of Neurology, notes that "Gall and Spurzheim established the fact that the white matter of the brain consists of nerve fibers and that the gray matter of the cerebral cortex represents the organs of mental activity. They were the first to demonstrate that the trigeminal nerve was not merely attached to the pons, but that it sent its root fibers as far down as the inferior olive in the medulla." Here they introduced in print the idea of the cerebrum as a collection of organs with different psychological functions, and focused the attention on the functions of the cerebral cortex. Broca regarded Gall's work on phrenology as "the starting point for every discovery in cerebral physiology in our century". The phrenological doctrine, with its suggestion of localization of the functions of the brain, gave a great impetus to the neurological sciences." The first publication of importance is the mémoire presented by Gall and Spurzheim as candidates for election to the Institute de France: Recherches. 1809 (the item offered). The mémoire was presented on March 14, 1808, and a committee of five, including Pinel, with Cuvier as chairman, was appointed to examine the researches and the doctrine. Whether Napoleon actually interfered is nor certain, although it is plain that he was opposed to the doctrine. Cuvier's long negative report of fifty-two pages is cautious and conservative, and shows that his commitee realized that it was dealing with a difficult and controversial matter." Edwin G. Boring Normann No. 861; Waller 3400; Wellocme III, 1784. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De l'exécution dramatique considérée dans ses rapports avec le matériel de la salle et de la scène

      Paris, F. Schoell, 1809, , XXII-[2]-297-[1] pp. (avec erreur de pagination entre 210 et 223), 3 pl. dépl, demi-basane, dos lisse factice, Ouvrage fort peu courant la mise en scène au théâtre. Les planches donnent des plans de théâtres antiques classiques, la coupe de l'élévation de la structure scénique de l'opéra de Paris et le plan d'un théâtre idéal. Le colonel Grobert (1757-181?) fut tout à la fois militaire, homme de lettres et inventeur. Son ouvrage sur la scénographie réunit son intérêt pour le théâtre en soit (il est notamment l'auteur d'une pièce sur la Bataille des Pyramides) et ses dispositions en mécanique - un chapitre entier est consacré au machines qui permettent la mobilité des décors. Tous les aspects de la mise en scène, du point de vue de l'ingénierie théâtrale, des décors, des costumes, de l'éclairage, du chauffage de la salle, etc. sont ici considérés avec attention.

        ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, ON THE MEASURES PURSUED BY THE EXECUTIVE WITH RESPECT TO THE BATTURE AT NEW-ORLEANS: TO WHICH ARE ANNEXED... A NUMBER OF OTHER DOCUMENTS NECESSARY TO A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF THIS INTERSTING CASE. [bound with:] A REVIEW OF THE CAUSE OF THE NEW ORLEANS BATTURE.... [bound with:] ADRESSE AU CONSEIL LEGISLATIF DU TERRITOIRE D'ORLEANS

      New Orleans; Philadelphia: Bradford & Anderson; Jane Aitken, 1809. Various paginations. With two loose autographed engraved portraits. Three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt ruled, original leather label. Contemporary ownership inscriptions on front pastedown and titlepages and slightly later ownership marks on front free endpaper. Contemporary manuscript table of contents on blank verso facing titlepage. Light dampstaining to initial leaves, light tanning throughout, heavier at rear. Very good. The New Orleans batture case was one of the bitter controversies of Jefferson's presidency and beyond. Edward Livingston, a prominent New Orleans attorney, claimed ownership of a strip of beach (the batture) at New Orleans which had long been used as a common boat landing. Jefferson took up the case of the city of New Orleans, asserting government ownership up to the high water mark, and had a federal marshal forcibly dispossess Livingston. This resulted in a celebrated case of the use of federal power which continued to be bitterly argued, so much so that Jefferson felt constrained, four years after leaving the presidency, to compose his legal reasoning in a pamphlet, one of only three full-scale works published under his name in his lifetime. It also brought about one of the few civil suits ever allowed against a sitting President. The case set an important precedent in the interaction of federal and state power, as well as having important local ramifications. The first imprint in this sammelband draws together six documents that represent an overview of the case from the point of view of Livingston, and his lawyer in the matter, Peter Du Ponceau. These consist of Livingston's presentation of his argument, correspondence between Livingston and other interested parties, a copy of the complaint by the previous owner, Jean Gravier, which began the controversy, and several opinions and reports on the case, including that of Du Ponceau. It also contains a review of the case written by Du Ponceau and printed in Philadelphia by Jane Aitken in 1809, as well as the first of five publications concerning the issue by Julien Poydras in favor of public use of the land. This volume was owned and inscribed by longtime Virginia statesman and conservative Democratic-Republican, John Randolph, who served several terms in both houses of the U.S. Congress during the first three decades of the 19th century. Randolph was a member of the famed Virginia family, and an important figure in American politics at the time of the controvesy. He was often allied with Jefferson, to whom he had both political and family ties, and was a bitter opponent of Livingston, of whom he said "He is a man of splendid abilities but utterly corrupt. He shines and stinks, like rotten mackerel by moonlight." A fascinating collection of imprints regarding an important legal dispute in the Louisiana Territory with far-reaching consequences.

        An Account of the British Settlement of Honduras;

      London: C. and R. Baldwin,, 1809. being a Brief View of its Commercial and Agricultural Resources, Soil, Climate, Natural History, &c. To which are added Sketches of the Manners and Customs of the Mosquito Indians, preceded by the Journal of a Voyage to the Mosquito Shore. Octavo (196 × 120 mm). Uncut in original boards recently rebacked in tan calf, title to spine gilt. Folding engraved frontispiece map. Boards a little rubbed, light browning, but overall a very good copy. First edition. An extensive record kept by Captain George Henderson (1783–1855) whilst stationed in Honduras with his regiment in 1806. This work offers an extensive insight into the flora and fauna of the region, most often discussed, as was common in travel accounts of at the time, in terms of their uses as food stuffs; for example the "manati", whose flesh was "particularly admired", and the "gregarious" tapir, which was "exceedingly course and rank" to eat. Henderson also reports on slavery in the region, describing the slaves' rations as firmly fixed "by custom" at "Irish salt pork, to each negro 5 lb per week. Of flour, always the finest, 1 lb per day each. Of rum, supposing a gill to each slave per day for 260 working days. Sugar, 12 lb per year. Two suits of osnaburgs (fatigue), one pair coarse shoes, tobacco and pipes". Wilk notes that Henderson did not recognise local root and vegetable gardens as farms "which in their minds raised European crops in neat rows on squared plots", leading to him to complain about the lack of agriculture in the region whilst noting that, "every settlement at Honduras has its plantain-walk; and many of these comprehend an extent of, at least, an hundred acres".

        Opere di scultura e di plastica di Antonio Canova descritte da Isabella Albrizzi nata Teotochi

      Firenze: presso Molini, Landi e compagno, 1809 - In-folio (45 cm) (6) IV (2) (1) c. (di tavola). Bella legatura coeva in mezza pergamena, piatti rivestiti con carta marmorizzata. Soli 160 esemplari impressi in Pisa nell'anno 1809 nelle case dell'editore. Questo è l'esemplare N 83 (numero manoscritto). Tutti gli esemplari sono firmati dai librai-stampatori: Molin Landi (firma manoscritta). Isabella Teotochi Marin Albrizzi (alla nascita Elisabetta Teotochi, greco: ???s?ßet Te?t???; Corfù, 16 giugno 1760 – Venezia, 27 settembre 1836) è stata una letterata, biografa e saggista italiana di origine greca, amante delle arti e animatrice di un noto salotto letterario. Annullato l'infelice matrimonio, Isabella sposò segretamente, nel 1796, l'inquisitore Giuseppe Albrizzi (morto nel 1812). Il suo salotto a Venezia fu uno dei più e dei meglio frequentati. L'affabilità naturale, il pronto ingegno, la grazia dell'aspetto, le attirarono le più alte e inviziate simpatie; caldissimamente l'ammirò il Canova, del quale illustrò le Opere di scultura e di plastica (Pisa 1831, voll. 4). Di alcuni fra i suoi illustri amici e ammiratori scrisse anche i Ritratti (ultima ed., Pisa 1826), quali del Pindemonte, del Canova, del Foscolo, del Cesarotti, dell'Alfieri (di cui difese la Mirra contro le critiche dell'abate Arteaga), del Byron, che l'aveva già chiamata la "Staël Veneziana"; essi le valsero il titolo di "epigrammatica" dal Giordani.

The series includes views of Moresnet, Welkenraedt, Rabotraedt, Angleur, Saint Léonard (Liège), Valentin-Cocq and Bray, all beautifully rendered by the French landscape painter Adolphe Maugendre (1809-1895).The series shows the complete process of producing zinc, from the zinc ore extraction to the stoking, pouring and refilling of the crucible, and finally the production of sheets of zinc in a rolling mill. It includes four detailed views of the Saint-Léonard plant (one, surprisingly, featuring a woman and two children). In the 20th century the Vieille Montagne society, together with a number of other mining and smelting companies, evolved into "Umicore", a global materials technology and recycling group still active today.Some light marginal spotting, the title-page more severely, title-page with a tiny tear, otherwise in very good condition. An important visual record of the history of the zinc industry.

Laid in is an old bookseller's catalogue description which states "A considerable edition was published, but the printers became alarmed in view of the stringency of the law of libel at the time, and took advice of a leading attorney, Mr. Samuel M. Hopkins, a young lawyer, in Auburn, N.Y. Mr. Hopkins informed them that ' he found, on an average, a libel on every page.' On this the memoir was suppressed and the edition destroyed, after a few copies only had been sold." Another old catalogue description states it was copyrighted by "Thomas Hall" and "in fact was never published." The work was written and published by author, editor, drama critic, and journalist Stephen Cullen Carpenter, an ardent federalist, who accused Jefferson of being too much under the influence of the French revolutionaries. Carpenter was a pro-English Irishman who fled from trouble with the British army in 1802 or 1803, settling in Charleston, SC, and in 1806 moving his periodical the Monthly Register, Magazine, and Review of the United States to New York. While it seems likely that the book was suppressed, it can't be true that only a few copies were sold before the edition was destroyed as it is not as rare all that today. Still, a better than average copy of a fairly scarce book, a publication worthy of Breibart News. Binding: Hardcover .

        James Madison Signed Presidential Patent for Pendulum Pumps

      Washington 1809 - Document Signed as President, issued to Atkinson Farra, Patent for a double-bored pendulum pump. Washington, December 5, 1809. Co-signed by Robert Smith as Secretary of State. 1 p plus inventor's 2 pp. description affixed by thin silk ribbon. 11 1/2 x 14 1/2 in. President James Madison issued this patent to Atkinson Farra of Pennsylvania. This double-bored wooden pump was operated by a pendulum handle, which caused the "suckers in each cylinder to play alternately; by operation of which the water flows without intermission." Farra adds, "If it be necessary (as it may be in ships) to increase the force this may be done by adding another handle to be worked on the opposite side; it is also suggested by the inventor that the rods may be worked by mechanisms similar to a Clock." James Madison (1751-1836) was the fourth President of the United States (1809-1817). Born in Port Conway, Virginia, Madison studied at Princeton University, entered politics in 1776, and played a major role in the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Madison was the principal architect of the U.S. Constitution and, along with Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, authored The Federalist, which helped to promote its ratification. He was later referred to as the "Father of the Constitution." Madison helped found Thomas Jefferson's Democratic-Republican Party in opposition to the financial proposals of Hamilton. He also served as Jefferson's Secretary of State (1801-1809). Madison's presidency (as well as his tenure as Secretary of State) witnessed the culmination of Anglo-American tensions that resulted in the War of 1812.Atkinson Farra (1761-1826) was a pumpmaker in Norristown, Pennsylvania, northwest of Philadelphia. He and his wife were Quakers and worshiped at the Friends Meeting at Plymouth Meeting.ConditionLight cockling, minor loss of parchment to upper right corner well away from text, scattered soiling and light foxing, folds, small tape remnants to outer edges, original decorative embossed paper seal neatly affixed with original pale green ribbons. Strong Madison signature.Historical Background- Presidential Signed PatentsAt 3:00 on the morning of December 15, 1836, a Patent Office messenger sleeping in the building awoke to thick smoke emanating from the basement. He acted quickly, rousing his colleagues to make a desperate attempt to enter the portion of the building that housed the patent documents. Outside the patent room, they encountered blocked doors, heavy smoke, and unreachable windows. By the time the fire department arrived, it was too late; the Patent Office was doomed, and eventually burnt to the ground.An estimated 7,000 models, 9,000 drawings and 230 books-as well as applications, correspondence, and patent copies-were destroyed by the blaze. Some of these documents were recovered with the help of inventors who still held the original patents, but an examination of the records recovered by the Patent Office revealed that their efforts to restore the archive were not very successful. Many of the destroyed patents were issued between 1790 and 1822, and had expired at the time of the fire, which made the recovery process even more difficult (Early Un-numbered U.S. Patents, 1790-1836). Of the estimated 10,000 patents issued before 1836, only 2,800 were ever recovered (Dood, Kendall S., Patent Drawings: Milestone Documents in the National Archives). Very few of the recovered patents are extant today. Patents were typically signed by both the President and Secretary of State, and, since four of the five presidents elected after Washington also served as Secretary of State, many of these early patent documents are actually endorsed by two presidents. Signed patents are much scarcer than presidential land grants, ships, and many other forms of presidential documents.

        Observations on the proceedings and report of the Special Medical Board, appointed by His Royal Highness the Commander in Chief, and the Right Hon. the Secretary at War, to examine the state of the Army Depôt Hospital in the Isle of Wight. Interspersed with instances and proofs of gross misrepresentations contained in various publications by Dr. Jackson.

      London: J. Hatchard 1809 - 8vo., (4) + 155 + (1)pp., including the half-title, the paper generally rather browned, half-title and final page (errata) soiled, with a slightly cropped ms presentation inscription on half-title ('Captain Davis with Mr. Keate's complim.>'). A good copy recently bound in linen-backed marbled boards lettered. First edition: very rare. OCLC & COPAC locate 4 copies only: at Kings College, London + N.L. Ireland + Wellcome + Herzog August Bibliothek in Germany. Not in BL. Although Thomas Keate (1745-1821) was a distinguished London surgeon, succeeding John Gunning in 1798 at Surgeon-General to the Army, and being elected F.R.S. the following year, he seems to have rubbed up the military hierarchy the wrong way. He had published in 1808 his Observations on the Fifth Report of the Commissioners of Military Enquiry>, a report which had censured the medical board for showing a lack of proper control, for irregularities in awarding promotions, for making new and unnecessary appointments, for waste and extravagance, and for opening general hospitals unnecessarily. Keate had carried out his duties with success but blame had nevertheless fallen on him. The board was dissolved in 1809 and Keate was retired with a small allowance. The present Observations> are in a sense a continuation of his 1808 Observations on the Fifth Report>, although evidently particularly examining the inspection of the Military Hospital on the Isle of Wight and both the clinical and administrative management of the hospital by the medical superintendent, Dr. Jackson, who it seems, had made in his evidence a number of 'misrepresentations and calumnies' about Keate.

        An Essay on the Principle of Population; or, A View of its Past and Present Effects on Human Happiness; with an Inquiry into our Prospects Respecting the Future Removal or Mitigation of the Evils which it Occasions.

      Washington: Printed and Published by Roger Chew Weightman, 1809. First American edition of this cornerstone text of modern economics. Octavo, 2 volumes, bound in contemporary calf, rebacked, red and black morocco spine labels, gilt titles. Previous owner's inscription to front free endpaper, "An application was made to Bishop Watson to answer this book on the grounds that it discouraged benevolence. He declined, excusing himself, however unfavorably saying that he saw its object was to prove that population could not increase beyond the level of rules of self-evident truth. A much better employment would have been to discover means of resistance that might supply the increasing wants of the population." Bishop Richard Watson served as the Bishop of Llandaff from 1782 to 1816 and published a number of political pamphlets contributing to the Revolution Controversy regarding the fundamental politics of the French Revolution. Watson corresponded with and published several counterarguments to the works of Thomas Paine and Thomas Robert Malthus among others. In very good condition with some browning to the text as usual, sporadic foxing. Rare and desirable. This 1803 edition, the first with Malthus name, was four times larger than the first: "practically a new book" (Osler 1297). "Malthus was one of the founders of modern economics. His Essay was originally the product of a discussion on the perfectibility of society with his father, [who] urged him to publish. Thus the first edition (published anonymously) was essentially a fighting tract, but later editions were considerably altered and grew bulkier as Malthus defended his views against a host of critics... The Essay was highly influential in the progress of thought in early 19th-century Europe [and] his influence on social policy was considerable... Both Darwin and Wallace clearly acknowledged Malthus as a source of the idea of 'the struggle for existence" (PMM 251).

        [BOTANY BAY] Twenty-one letters written to a near relative at school.

      / By the Rev. John Newton ... extracted from his posthumous works. To which are annexed a few pieces of poetry, by the same author. London : Printed for J. Johnson et al., 1809. Octavo, straight-grained morocco (rebacked); inscription to front free endpaper 'Priscilla Martha Victoria Vickers, given to her mother by her early friend Mrs Stokes'; engraved frontispiece portrait of John Newton, pp viii, 107, [i - catalogue]; this work includes the hymn To the Rev. Mr. Johnson going to Botany Bay; as is common for books of the time, the names of many of the subjects of the letters and poems are concealed by the use of asterisks, the interesting aspect of this copy being that the correct identities have been annotated in manuscript by Mary Stokes (friend of Rev. Samuel Marsden, Rev. Johnson's assistant); a very good association copy. [Bound with] The articles of the Church of England, with scripture proofs. London : L. B. Seeley, 1811. pp  v, 51. John Newton made his first sea voyage in the company of his father at the age of eleven. In fact, a considerable part of his early life was spent at sea; this included time spent on ships working in the West African slave trade. In 1748, after nearly perishing during a storm on a return voyage to England, Newton had a religious epiphany. From this point, he found himself increasingly unable to reconcile slavery with the teachings of Christianity. In 1754 he abandoned the slave trade altogether, devoting himself to Bible study. He was ordained as a clergyman in the Church Of England in 1764. Later in life Newton wrote prolifically, both as an abolitionist and a hymnist. He penned the hymn Faith's Review and Expectation, which is more commonly known by its famous opening words, Amazing Grace. In 1786 Newton was one of a number of clergymen in the Eclectic Society who proposed the idea of sending a chaplain to accompany the convicts on the First Fleet. It was through Newton's personal acquaintance with both Rev. Richard Johnson and William Wilberforce that Johnson was offered this position, on Newton's recommendation to Wilberforce. Newton wrote a hymn for Johnson prior to the Fleet's departure, The Lord, who sends thee hence, which is printed on page 107 of the present volume. Its second verse begins: 'Go bear the Saviour's Name to lands unknown'. Johnson became a figure of critical importance in the establishment of the colony at Botany Bay. He served as chaplain to the New South Wales Corps, and for its first six years carried out all the clerical duties of the colony. He was also a staunch friend and supporter of the Aborigines, adopting an Aboriginal girl into his own family and on one occasion offering himself as a hostage in order to allow Bennelong to visit the governor. Johnson's assistant was Rev. Samuel Marsden, who arrived at Port Jackson in 1794. Like Johnson, Marsden was to become one of the most significant of the early colonists, not only through the execution of his religious duties but also because of his activities as a sheep farmer and wool exporter. The volume we offer here has a direct connection with Samuel Marsden, as it was presented to its first owner, the mother of Priscilla Vickers, by Mary Stokes, the wife of Marsden's close friend, John Stokes; a collection of the letters sent from Sydney by Samuel Marsden to both John and Mary Stokes in London, spanning the years 1794-1824, is held in the Mitchell Library. The Stokes family evidently also belonged to Rev. John Newton's inner circle: as the annotations of Mary Stokes in the present volume reveal, two of Newton's poems are actually about young members of the Stokes family (see pages 87 and 100). Rare. There is no copy of Newton's Twenty-one letters written to a near relative at school recorded in Australian collections. As it contains what is probably the very first piece of poetry written about New South Wales, it can justly be considered a publication of some significance, although it was unknown to Ferguson. A version of Newton's poem, sent to the Herald by a reader from West Maitland in 1888 (New South Wales' centenary year), is included in a group of manuscripts and ephemera held in the Mitchell Library (Letters from the Rev. Richard Johnson to Henry Fricker, 30 May 1787-10 Aug. 1797, with associated items, ca. 1888. Safe 1/121).

        [LA PEROUSE] The Grand Serious Pantomime De la Perouse.

      With New Scenery, Machinery, Dresses and Decorations. [Liverpool] : E. and W. Smith, Printers, Pool-Lane, [1809]. A good copy, with a very small amount of edge loss at lower left. Playbill, single sheet (285 x 190 mm), advertising a performance at the Theatre-Royal, Liverpool, on Friday, September 15th, 1809. The play opening the bill is ‘The Suspicious Husband’, and the evening is a benefit for 'The Three Misses Adams'. The full cast for 'La Perouse' is listed, with the protagonist played by Mr Terry and Madame Perouse by Miss H. Adams. A relatively early example of a playbill for this stage work, productions of which are recorded from 1801 onwards. An earlier play about La Perouse by the German playwright Kotzebue had been published in 1798, in which La Perouse is depicted as the only survivor of his shipwreck, living with an empathetic native woman on a deserted island until Madame La Perouse and his son discover him. The native woman and Madame La Perouse end up co-habiting on the island, with La Perouse becoming something of a brother to them. Although this story clearly inspired Fawcett, his version of the tragedy had a different conclusion which was designed to suit English public taste: the native woman turns out to be evil, and with the help of newly-arrived natives she plots the destruction of La Perouse, his wife and son - until foiled by a clever chimpanzee and crew of the ‘Astrolabe’, who massacre the natives and return to France with the La Perouse family.
