        Fine bust-length aquatint portrait engraving by Queneday

      Paris 1809 - 245 x 185 mm. An early proof, without titling. Slightly worn and soiled. Arrigoni & Bertarelli 3949."In 1770 Burney considered [Sacchini] one of the four greatest composers of Italy, along with Jommelli, Galuppi and Piccinni. While he placed Piccinni supreme in the comic style, he nominated Sacchini ?the most promising composer in the serious'. A critic of the next generation, Giuseppe Carpani, hailed Sacchini as the world's greatest melodist. In general, his style is typical of the late Classical era with its simplicity of texture and balanced phrase structure. At times, however, the Mozartian melodic line gives way to expansive phrases that bring to mind the lyric style of the 19th century. Sacchini's harmony tends to be richer than that of most of his contemporary Italian opera composers." David DiChiera and Joyce Johnson Robinson in Grove Music Online. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY, ON THE SUBJECT OF MANUFACTURES, MADE THE FIFTH OF DECEMBER, 1791

      Washington: R.C. Weightman, 1809. 109pp. Modern red leather, tooled in gilt. Light toning and foxing. Very good. The second American edition of Hamilton's famed report on manufactures, one of his most important State Papers. Howes calls it "the Magna Carta of industrial America." In this report Hamilton first set down in a formal way the economic principles by which he expected to see the new nation expand its manufacturing base. "As the successive reports of the Secretary were studied, the scale of his ideas gradually became evident. He was not merely planning a fiscal system, but doing it in such a way as to strengthen the central government and develop the resources of the country, to stimulate trade and capitalistic enterprises, and to bring about a more symmetrical balance between agriculture and industry" - DAB. Hamilton's report can now be seen as the genesis of American manufacturing might. Rare. This edition is not in Goldsmiths or Kress. The first edition of 1790 is a legendary rarity in the marketplace, and the last copy to appear for sale realized more than $250,000. A foundational piece of Americana. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 19064. FORD 204. HOWES H123. REESE, FEDERAL HUNDRED 38 (ref).

      Amsterdam und Cölln, Peter Hammer (d. i. Leipzig, Gräff), 1807-1809. - Seltene erste vollständige Ausgabe des "interessanten Journals, welches durch die freimüthige Beurtheilung der großen Mißstände im preuß. Heere und Staate s. Z. großes Aufsehen erregte" (Hayn/G.). Wegen des "literarischen Verraths von Dienstgeheimnissen" in diesen 'Briefen' sowie in den 'Neuen Feuerbränden' wurde Cölln (1766-1820), preuß. Kriegs- und Steuerrat, verhaftet. Er konnte jedoch fliehen und erhielt schließlich auf Hardenbergs Veranlassung sogar eine Pension, weil man seine Feder fürchtete. Neben tagebuchartigen Aufzeichnungen über Napoleon und die Kriegsereignisse wird das preußische Finanzwesen mit all seinen Fehlern dargestellt, das – nach Cöllns Hoffnung – durch "einen einzigen Gewaltigen" (den Freiherrn von Stein) umfassend reformiert werden soll. Cölln gibt dazu, besonders in den Beilagen zum 5. Band, eine Fülle von Informationen zum Domänenwesen in den verschiedenen Gebieten, zum Contributionswesen, Salzwesen, Accise, Münze, Post-Regale, Berg- und Hüttenregale, zum Lotto, zum Geldumlauf, Pfand- und Kreditsystem, zu Schutzscheinen u.v.a.m. – Bände 2-6 mit dem zusätzlichen Titel: Beytrag zur Geschichte des Krieges in Preußen, Schlesien und Pohlen in den Jahren 1806 und 1807. – Unterschiedlich gebräunt und stockfleckig.

In January 1809, while embarking his vastly out-numbered forces onto transport ships at the Galician port of Corunna, Moore was forced to defend his position from an attack by Marshal Soult.

Ambrose Serle (1742–1812)[1] was an English official, diarist and writer of Christian prose and hymns. Serle was born on 30 August 1742, and entered the Royal Navy. In 1764, while living in or near London, Serle became a friend of William Romaine. Other friends of his among the evangelicals were John Thornton, John Newton, Augustus Toplady, and Legh Richmond.[2] When William Legge, 2nd Earl of Dartmouth became Secretary of State for the Colonies in 1772, Serle was appointed one of his under-secretaries, and in January 1776 he was made clerk of reports. He went to America in 1774, and accompanied the British Army from 1776 to 1778.[2] In 1776 William Tryon gave him control of the political section of the New-York Gazette, which he held from September 1776 to July 1777.[3] On returning from America in 1780 Serle settled at Heckfield, Hampshire.

      - saying that "yesterday's papers just come in have shocked me and grieved me beyond telling - is that poor widow in want? If so, and you hear of any prospect for expressing sympathy or offering relief - or think of setting any such plan afoot do remember me and that I think most kindly and affectionately of our dear old friend . I write to you because I want to speak to some one about it - don't trouble yourself to answer unless you hear there's money wanted - I have some of mine and some of Higgins's - God help us: suppose the lot were mine and my young ones sitting at home fatherless. In such a case fellows like you would help them and it must be a certainty that poor Eliot can have left little behind him: wont it be well that some scheme should be set a going to make a little purse for the orphans? Isn't Mrs Eliot in some way connected to Lord John Russell? That's a pity on account of the pension, but one must be got for the widow and children of this kind gentle soul this good man this gifted charming writer. And the other thing should be done, and you and Milnes and I should put our names down - but you two first and especially - I daresay you have thought of it yourself, and are twice as good a man of business as I am, and I only write because as you say yourself one's impulse is to write on these occasions and to relieve myself by speaking to a friend about a dear old comrade gone to his account ." with a postcript in his upright hand saying that he "came to town on Saturday, and wanted to come to day but that my host here made such a pt that I could not say no any more .", 3 sides 8vo., Erlestoke, Westbury, Thursday, no date The recipient of this letter is Alexander William Kinglake (1809-1891, Travel Writer and Historian) and the other friend referred to is Richard Monckton Milnes (1st Baron Houghton, 1809-1885, Poet, Patron of Literature and Politician).

        Group of 16 Autograph Letter Signed, in French with checklist and translations, (Louis de Launay, 1753-1812, Comte d', French publicist and political adventurer)]

      1809 - addressed to d'Antraigues, by James Tyrrell ROSS (Private secretary, 1807-1809, to George CANNING, the Foreign Secretary, later Prime Minister), written in increasingly familiar terms, but in very guarded language, Ross is acting as d'Antraigues' main contact with Canning and with 'Il', 'l'Ami' or 'votre Ami', whom he meets at Gloucester Lodge (Old Brompton, bought by Canning in 1809), thanking him for information, arranging for copies of leaflets to be distributed on the coast of France, referring to 'le Général' (probably Puisaye, see below), setting up meetings at dinner, and asking him to use an ordinary seal ('cachet') rather than his personal one, together 30 sides mostly 8vo, written from Spring Garden, St. James' Street, Gloucester Lodge, or the Foreign Office, 6th February - 18th December 1809 and no place, no date, but London c. The Count, a Gascon of the Cevennes, had been a Republican in 1788, a member of the Assembly of 1789, a Monarchist in 1790 and had then emigrated to Venice, Vienna, Dresden and finally London (1806), his love of intrigue being stronger than his ambition. He was the confidant and correspondent of the Comte de Provence (Louis XVIII), Maria Carolina of Naples, the Tsar, and, once in England, of Canning. His credibility, it was rumoured, was increased by revealing secret terms of the treaties of Tilsit, June 1807, between Napoleon and the Tsar, which Canning forestalled by ordering the attack on the Danish fleet in Copenhagen. At the end of his career he lost credibility and he and his wife, the singer Saint-Huberty, were assassinated in mysterious circumstances, by a servant dismissed the previous day, outside their cottage in Barnes Terrace. See, for example, 'The D'Antraigues phenomenon: the making and breaking of a revolutionary royalist espionage agent', 1985, by Colin Duckworth, also d'Antraigues' unpublished 'Mes Soliloques' (Bibliothèque Nationale, Achat no. 23055). After Tilsit, Louis XVIII deemed it prudent to leave Mittau in the Tsar's dominions and planned to settle in England. Canning was unhappy and insisted that he live at least 50 miles from London. By this time d'Antraigues had no great love for Louis XVIII, who preferred the counsels of the Comte d'Avaray. d'Antraigues joined General Puisaye, then one of the chief émigrés in London, in attacking d'Avaray in Vol. VI of Puisaye's memoirs (January 1809), in all probability the 'matter of the General' referred to in the present letter of 11th February. d'Avaray and his friends tried to provoke Puisaye to a duel, and Puisaye retired to Devon. The present letters show Canning's continued support for d'Antraigues. A main source for d'Antraigues' correspondence from 1807 to early 1809 is his many letters to Puisaye (see the BL MSS ) and the present letters take up where the latter cease. Checklist: 1. St. James Street. Wednesday [perhaps early in 1809]. About the number of copies of a document, and a letter for Canning. 2. Foreign Office, 6th February 1809. About d'Antraigues' hurt arm: could he not dictate a letter ? 3. 11th Feb. 1809. Ross has reported their conversation of this morning to 'Him', who advises silence, the matter of 'the General' will be probably be settled as d'A has advised. Ross offers to interpret at the physicians'. 4. Foreign Office, 22nd Feb. 1809. The Abbé Penceaux [sic, probably for Pericaud] must supply an account of the £100 spent leafleting the coasts of France. 5. Tuesday 11th April [probably 1809]. Assuring d'A that the recipient of his letter knows it was hand-delivered by d'A. 6. Foreign Office. 24th May 1809. Arranging luncheon. 7. Spring Garden. 25th July [probably 1809]. About collecting copies. 8. Saturday 1st October [? for Saturday 30th September 1809]. About sending 100 copies to Mr Treves, and mentioning Canning. 9. [Foreign] Office. Friday. [?c. October 1809].
