        Genera crustaceorum et insectorum, secundum ordinem naturalem in familias disposita, iconibus exemplisque, plurimis explicata. I-IV.

      Paris and Strasbourg: A. Koening, 1806-1809. Four volumes, octavo, 12 plates and 2 folding tables; in contemporary marbled paper boards with spine labels, old shelf markers to spine. First edition. Pierre André Latreille (1762-1833) had entered the Paris Museum in 1799, and became Professor of Entomology on the death of Lamarck. He went on to publish a great number of important entomological books and articles, including several relating to other French voyages to the Pacific, and contributing the volume on insects to Cuvier's revolutionary Règne Animal of 1817. A memoir of Latreille, with a portrait, was published in Sir William Jardine's Naturalist's Library for 1841.This is one of Latreille's most significant works: while Latreille praised Cuvier for having founded zoological classification on comparative anatomy, he based his own classification work primarily on the consideration of external characters. Nonetheless, as one of his successors remarked more than half a century after the appearance of the 'Genera', the work offered "such an exact exposition of the characters of the insects, arachnids, and crustaceans, and nearly always such a just appreciation of the natural affinities of these animals, that the most modern researches only added rectifications of a second order" (DSB VIII, p. 48). Moderate foxing.

        CULTIVO DEL CAFETO Ó ÁRBOL QUE PRODUCE EL CAFE, Y MODO DE BENEFICIAR ESTE FRUTO...

      Havana: Imprenta del Gobierno, 1809. [9],180,[6]pp., plus one engraved plate. Contemporary red morocco, gilt ruled, gilt leather spine label. Printed on light blue paper. Boards and edges slightly worn. Light foxing and dampstaining. Very good. In a morocco box. The first Spanish edition and rare Havana imprint of this technical manual on the production of coffee in Saint Domingue, originally written by P.J. Laborie and published in London in 1798. This Spanish translation was completed by Pablo Boloix, who wrote several tracts related to the Cuban and wider Caribbean economy and commerce. The manual gives detailed instructions on the establishment and operation of coffee plantations, following the example of those in Saint Domingue. It also gives a short assessment of the organization and state of the island in 1789, when the discontent that led to the Haitian Revolution was fomenting. Although coffee plants were first brought to Cuba in the mid-18th century, it was not until the dislocations caused by the rebellion in Saint Domingue forced out many colonists. The refugees, arriving in Cuba, brought better methods of production and led to the proliferation of coffee as a cash crop. Much of this manual is focused on the use of slaves in coffee production, and discusses best practices for purchasing, housing, and caring for them, as well as for maintaining authority. Very rare, we locate only four institutional copies of this imprint, at the Bancroft Library, Harvard, and the national libraries of Spain and Chile. MEDINA HABANA 250. PALAU 129004. SABIN 38431.

        Nouveau plan routier de la ville et faubourgs de Paris divisé en douze mairies.

      Paris, Journeaux l'aîné, 1809. 543 x 764 mm. Beau plan de la ville de Paris sous Napoléon, divisée en 12 arrondissements municipaux, tels que décrétés le 11 octobre 1795. Le plan montre les premiers travaux d'embellissement et d'aménagement de voirie de la ville ordonnés par Napoléon, parmi lesquels figurent le pont des Arts, construit entre 1802 et 1804, le pont d'Austerlitz, entre 1799 et 1807, la nouvelle Morgue place du Marché-Neuf (ordonnance de police de 1804) ou le quai d'Orsay.

Ainsi, l'actuel quai de la Corse est divisé en deux parties nommées quai Desaix et quai Napoléon, l'actuel quai Anatole France porte le nom de quai Bonaparte, ou encore la rue Saint-Louis-en-l'Île, nommée rue Blanche de Castille en 1806. Le plan est accompagné d'une table alphabétique des rues, places, marchés, quais, prisons, paroisses, d'une table alphabétique des rues qui ont changé de nom, de la liste des mairies et des bureaux de la police judiciaire.

        Memoirs of the Hon. Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State, Vice-President, and President of the United States of America; containing a concise history of those states, from the acknowledgment of their independence.

      Printed for the Purchasers, (New York) 1809 - Title page continues: " With a view of the rise and progress of French influence and French principles in that country. In two volumes." Two volumes, octavo, 21.5 cm. Bound in contemporary calf, maroon titling pieces on spines. pp [2], iv, 404, [2]; [2], (4), 434, [4]. Spines a bit darkened; some rubbing to the sides; endpapers foxed; yellowing and occasional mild foxing in text; damp stain to lower inner margins of Vol. I from endpapers through p. iv; one-third of rear free endpaper of Vol. I torn away; inner hinges cracked; VG pair otherwise, text unworn, joints not cracked, tight in the bindings. "Federalist attack, not authentic memoirs"- No. 241, p. 32, in: Shuffleton, Frank. Thomas Jefferson : a comprehensive, annotated bibliography (1983). Shaw & Shoemaker, 17154. Sabin 11004. "Venomously critical; said to have been suppressed for fear of libel suits. " - Howes C164. 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
