        THE TRAVELS OF CAPTS. LEWIS & CLARKE [sic], FROM ST. LOUIS, BY WAY OF THE MISSOURI AND COLUMBIA RIVERS, TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN; PERFORMED IN THE YEARS 1804, 1805, & 1806...CONTAINING DELINEATIONS OF THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS, RELIGION, etc. OF THE INDIANS...

      London, 1809. Contemporary calf, rebacked, preserving original spine. Bookplate on front pastedown. Titlepage tanned. Some scattered foxing, but generally clean internally. Very good. In a brown cloth slipcase. The first London "Apocrypha edition," as denoted by Elliott Coues. In response to the growing curiosity of the public regarding the findings of Lewis and Clark and the delay in publication of the "authorized account" of their expedition, this compilation of bits and pieces from already published works appeared, misleading the reader into believing it was the account sanctioned by the government and containing all the information gathered during the journey. Wheat points out that the work contains "the earliest published map with legends stemming from Lewis and Clark." Howes calls this the "counterfeit" edition, while Sabin states it contains material not published in any other edition. The map shows western North America. WAGNER-CAMP 8:2.

        Die Rückkehr des Königs in seine Hauptstadt. Zur Erinnerung an den 23sten December 1809. Mit einer gestochenen Titelvignette (S.HALLE del. et sc.).

      bei Johann Daniel Sander, Berlin 1809 - 18 S. Rosafarbene (Orig.-) Glanzpapierbroschur. Leichte Gebrauchsspuren. Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke VI,197,8 [zitiert den etwas abweichenden Titel des Abdrucks in „Vermischte Schriften“, Bd.1 von 1812]). – Etwas stockfleckig, Ecken leicht knickspurig. Sehr seltene Gelegenheitsschrift (in nur drei Bibliotheken nachweisbar, für mich kein weiteres Exemplar im Handel ), die, wie auch die Ode KLEISTs zu gleichem Anlass „im hergebrachten Festgetön halllos verklungen“ (P.Hoffmann zum Neudruck 1926 von KLEISTs Ode auf den Wiedereinzug des Königs im Winter 1809) und nahezu unbemerkt geblieben war. In einem Brief an MÜLLER echauffierte sich noch beinahe ein Jahr später (21.Okt. 1810) der Freund FR.GENTZ: „Wie war es . möglich, daß ein so vollendetes Meisterwerk, wie Ihre kleine Schrift, bei der Rückkehr des Hofes nach Berlin, so ganz todt zur Erde fallen konnte, daß sie gar nichts Gutes für Sie stiftete, daß selbst Frau [CAROLINE] V.BERG [die Freundin der inzwischen verstorbenen Königin] – es übersteigt allen Glauben – die Existenz dieser Schrift erst von mir erfahren mußte? Ich weiß wohl, daß Sie selbst, von Stolz geblendet, auf dies Produkt, von welchem Sie in einem Brief an mich beinahe mit Verachtung sprachen, keinen Werth legten; aber Ihre damaligen Protektoren und Freunde, deren Sie doch Viele hatten, müssen wahre Nachtmützen oder Hundsfötter gewesen sein, um nicht von einer, zugleich so herrlichen und so populären Composition die Veranlassung zu nehmen, Sie dem Hofe als eins der wichtigsten Kleinodien der verarmten Monarchie aufzuzwingen. Wäre dies geschehen, HARDENBERG würde Sie heute gewiß nicht mit Gleichgültigkeit behandeln.“ „Den Einzug des Königs zu Berlin . sahen ADAM MÜLLER und die Brüder EICHENDORFF aus den Fenstern im Quartier des Grafen LOEBEN an. Aus diesem Anlaß hatte ADAM MÜLLER auch eine kleine Festschrift verfaßt . Diese Schrift ist zwar ein bloßes Gelegenheitswerk, aber sie zeigt uns, wie sehr ADAM MÜLLER auch zu dichterischer Darstellung befähigt war. . in dieser hymnischen Verehrung des preußischen Königspaares folgt ADAM MÜLLER den Spuren des früh verschiedenen NOVALIS, der im Jahre 1798 die Thronbesteigung FRIEDRICH WILHELMs III. und der Königin LUISE durch einen Zyklus politischer Poesien unter dem Titel: Glauben und Liebe oder der König und die Königin gefeiert hatte. Spielt bei NOVALIS in diese Huldigung schon ein starkes, religiöses Moment hinein, so noch mehr bei ADAM MÜLLER: Es ist ein Ton des katholischen Marienkultes, der in seiner Verherrlichung der preußischen Königin wiederklingt.“ (J.Baxa, Adam Müller, Jena 1930, S.132ff.).

        The Mountains of Samayut

      London: William Miller, 1809. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by D. Havell after Henry Salt, on thick wove paper. A lyrical landscape of the Samayut Mountains in Ethiopia Henry Salt, artist, traveller, diplomat and collector of antiquities, was born at Lichfield, Staffordshire, England 14 June 1780. He was destined to be a portrait-painter, and on leaving school was taught drawing by Glover, the watercolour-painter of Lichfield. In 1797 he went to London and became a pupil of Joseph Farington, R.A., and (in 1800) of John Hoppner, R.A. The turning point in his career was 3 June 1802, when Salt left London for an eastern tour with George, viscount Valentia (afterwards Lord Mountnorris), whom he accompanied as secretary and draughtsman. He visited the Cape, India, Sri Lanka, and (in 1805) Abyssinia, returning to England on 26 Oct. 1806. He made many drawings, some of which served to illustrate Lord Valentia's Voyages and Travels to India, published in 1809. The present image is from a work titled Twenty-four Views in St. Helena, the Cape, India, Ceylon, the Red Sea, Abyssinia and Egypt, published by William Miller, with hand-coloured aquatints by D. Havell and J. Bluck from Salt's own drawings. The originals of all these drawings were retained by Lord Valentia, who also retained the ownership of the copper plates after Salt's death. The format and style of presentation of the plates is similar to Thomas and William Daniell's great work, Oriental Scenery (1795-1808), and displays great artistry by both Salt and his engravers.

        Fukusho kiran yoku [trans.: Wonderful View of Abdominal Diagnoses. Second Series. Parts 1-4].

      65 full-page woodcuts in the text, most of which are highlighted in blue. Four parts, each part in two vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on each upper cover (one lacking, some occasional & relatively inoffensive worming), new stitching. Edo & Osaka et al.: 1809-33-51-53. First editions and very rare; the sequel to Fuminori Inaba's Fukusho kiran (1801). During the first half of the 19th century, Japanese physicians began to favor palpation of the abdominal area over other forms of diagnosis. Fukusho Kiran was an outstanding work in the development of this new practice. In this sequel, published over a period of many years, Wakuda (1768-1824), a disciple of Inaba, continues to develop the method of palpation. He provides many corrections to Inaba's work and includes commentaries on Chinese and Japanese medical books and theories. The woodcut illustrations, which are extremely well-engraved, depict full-length images of patients suffering from various ailments, most of which have greenish blue markings indicating the seat of their complaints. Prescriptions for the ailments illustrated follow each woodcut. Several of the illustrations depict applications of moxa. Very good set. The final three parts were published posthumously. .

        Sandy Bay Valley in the Island of St. Helena

      London: William Miller, 1809. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by D. Havell after Henry Salt, on wove paper (watermark 'J Whatman'). View of the British colonial island St. Helena prior to its becoming Napoleon's last residence Henry Salt, artist, traveller, diplomat and collector of antiquities, was born at Lichfield, Staffordshire, England 14 June 1780. He was destined to be a portrait-painter, and on leaving school was taught drawing by Glover, the watercolour-painter of Lichfield. In 1797 he went to London and became a pupil of Joseph Farington, R.A., and (in 1800) of John Hoppner, R.A. The turning point in his career was 3 June 1802, when Salt left London for an eastern tour with George, viscount Valentia (afterwards Lord Mountnorris), whom he accompanied as secretary and draughtsman. He visited India, Ceylon, and (in 1805) Abyssinia, returning to England on 26 Oct. 1806. He made many drawings, some of which served to illustrate Lord Valentia's Voyages and Travels to India , published in 1809. The present image is from a work titled Twenty-four Views in St. Helena, the Cape, India, Ceylon, the Red Sea, Abyssinia and Egyp t, published by William Miller, with hand-coloured aquatints by D. Havell and J. Bluck from Salt's own drawings. The originals of all these drawings were retained by Lord Valentia, who also retained the ownership of the copper plates after Salt's death. The format and style of presentation of the plates is similar to Thomas and William Daniell's great work, Oriental Scenery (1795-1808), and the artistry displayed by both Salt and his engravers is in many cases more than a match for the Daniell's images.

        The Entrance to the Elephanta Cave

      London: Published as the Act Directs for Thos. Daniell, Howland Street, Fitzroy Square, 1809. Aquatint by and after Thomas & William Daniell, coloured by hand, on 'Whatman' wove paper. A stunning view of the cave-temple on Elephanta Island in the middle of Mumbai harbour This "rock-cut Hindu sanctuary ... is generally attributed to the 6th-century Shilahara rulers. The main entrance is through a columned hall entirely hewn out of the basalt hill that rises in the middle of [Elephanta] ... island. Known to the Portuguese ... the Elephanta cave-temple was a popular excursion for European visitors at the time of the Daniells" ( India yesterday and today p. 183). The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered one of the finest illustrated works on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

First French edition of one of the most influential works in the history of economic thought. Malthus was not the only one to write about population growth, but he was the first who systematically and drastically analyzed the risks and necessary measures. He laid down the principle that population increases in geometrical ratio, but that subsistence increases only in arithmetical ratio. He argued that a stage would be reached where increases of population must be limited, and advocated checks on population increase in order to reduce poverty and misery.

        Raccolta di Cinquanta Costumi Pittoreschi

      Rome: Lorenzo Lazaro alle Covervile, 1809. Oblong folio. 10 1/2 x 15 7/8 inches). Engraved throughout: title and 50 plates, by Pinelli. Contemporary dark green half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, small decorative green morocco title label Provenance: John Thomas Mott (Barningham, Norfolk, armorial bookplate) First edition of the first and best known collection of views of the picturesque costume of Italy. This highly evocative series was a justified 'best-seller' - published in various forms from 1808 to 1828, every 'grand tourist' would return with a copy of this work. The present example, a first edition, shows a crispness that tends to be lost with the later reprints. The images are by turns joyful, comedic, dramatic, tragic and work-a-day. All are engraved with a sureness of line and matchless sense of composition that are the hallmarks of Pinelli's work. The final plate represents the artist himself: Pinelli relaxes, his work done, seated on some Roman masonry, two dogs for company. Cicognara noted that : "Questi sono tolti la più parte dalle abitudini del popolo romano, e sono espressi con una verità e fedeltà insuperabile".

        The Travels of Capts.

With copious delineations of the manners, customs, religion, &c. of the Indians. Compiled from various authentic sources, and documents. To which is subjoined, a summary of the statistical view of the Indian Nations, from the official communication of Meriwether Lewis

Contemporary marbled sheep, neatly rebacked to style, the flat spine divided into six compartments by gilt fillets, the original black morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment Provenance: J.C. Smith (early inscription noting the purchase of the book from "an itinerant bookseller at the price of one dollar"); Floyd B. Smith (bookplate) First edition of the first Lewis and Clark "Apocrypha" complete with plates and the rare map - "the first in a long and mostly related series of unauthorized published accounts of the expedition" (Literature of Lewis and Clark). In response to the growing curiosity of the public regarding the findings of Lewis and Clark and the delay in publication of the authorized account of their expedition, this compilation of information from previously published works, including Gass, Mackenzie, Carver, and Jefferson's Message of 1806, was published in 1809, with a London edition following the next year. "The dearth of information on the adventures of the Corps of Discovery spawned a remarkable literature: the creation of seemingly authentic, but not quite honest accounts of the travels of Lewis and Clark ... It is probable that 'Hubbard Lester' is a pseudonym. Whoever this publisher was, he was clever. The 'Recommendation of the President' in this volume appeared to be Thomas Jefferson's endorsement, though it was nothing of the kind. It was merely a subterfuge to entice purchasers" (Literature of Lewis and Clark). The work contains five plates, purporting to be of western Indians. One of these is based on the frontispiece of Bartram's Travels ...; the others have no earlier appearance that we can trace but are likely ficticious representations. The present copy includes the rare folding map, which Wheat notes as "the earliest published map with legends stemming from Lewis and Clark." The map is largely based on the Arrowsmith and Lewis 1804 map of Louisiana This first Philadelphia edition is quite rare, and is almost invariably found in terrible condition and almost always without the map or plates.

        The United States of North America: with the British Territories, and those of Spain

      [London]: Wm. Faden, 1809. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, in excellent condition apart from repair to center fold. The seventh issue of one of the most important early maps of the United States Faden's sequence of maps of the United States represents one of the most important cartographic depictions of the newly independent republic. The present map is the seventh issue of the fourteen total appellations (including the parent plan and thirteen subsequent issues). The Faden sequence comprises a fascinating series of historical documents regarding the political development of the United States, each issue capturing a distinct stage in America's transformative change. The map does not acknowledge the recent admission of the State of Ohio (1803), though the process of territorial development is noted in "The Seven Ranges" and "Army Land" in the southeast corner of the state, where Thomas Hutchins established the wisdom of using right angles and grids to establish governmental and proprietorial entities, the system that would overlay most of America's future territory. Various private and public plans are underway throughout the southern halves of Ohio and the future Indiana and Illinois. For example, an enterprise that was headed by "Colonel Simmes [sic]," in western Ohio. John Cleves Symmes (1742-1814), an eccentric New Jersey magistrate, who had contributed to the Continental Army, and who later wrote a book which theorized that the interior of the earth was both hollow and inhabitable, and could be entered through the poles. The map is helpfully colored to designate, as his previous maps had, the rulership of the various parts. Now the list consists of Great Britain, Spain, France (really just cod fishing rights of the western coast of Newfoundland) and the United States, whose responsibilities now include the Louisiana Territory. Faden also designated purple regions that represent, "The Aborigines or Indians, and Boundaries of the Lands they have Granted". The purple regions tellingly assert the rapid spread of the white settlers including all the Great Lakes and cutting through New York, Pennsylvania and south through Georgia. Clearly, the British supposition and hope that the Americans would be confined to the Atlantic seaboard was false. Faden elected to present the extreme British conception of the border in northern Maine, (whose northern boundary disputes would continue well into the 19th century) and in the northwest, the border was supposed to run west to the source of the Mississippi, when in reality the source was located well to the south. The map also features "The Twenty Leagues Line" located off of the east coast that marked the exclusive maritime jurisdiction of the United States. The composition is completed by an especially finely engraved title cartouche which depicts scenes of commerce in the prosperous new nation.

The work is divided into voyages to the South and Southeast, voyages to the North and Northeast, and voyages to the West. Hakluyt was also very interested in the New World. He brought his readers up to date on recent events such as Raleigh's voyage to Guiana, and he also included non-English voyages, such as the expeditions of Verrazano, Ribaut, Laudonnière, and the Zeno brothers, as well as a large number of documents describing the West Indies from Spanish sources.''A very accurate reprint of the best folio'' (Lowndes). Some occasional light spotting. Fine set.

        Four-language Ships Papers signed by President James Madison for a brig headed from New York City to the Portuguese island of Fayal in the Azores - the Non-Intercourse Act, passed just days before Madison's inauguration, lifted all embargoes on American shipping except for those bound for British or French ports or their dependencies

      Washington, DC, May 26, 1809. 20" x 16". "Party Printed Document Signed ""James Madison"" as President, ""R. Smith"" as Secretary of State, and ""David Gelston"" as Collector of the Customs of New York, 1 page, 20"" x 16"". Washington, between March and May 1809. Completed in manuscript. Four-language Ships Papers in four vertical columns: French, Spanish, English, Dutch. Blind embossed Seal of the United States, 2.5 inch diameter with serrated edge at left, above blind embossed Seal of the New York Collector's Office, 1.5 inch diameter with serrated edge; each Seal affixed with red wax. Usual folds for filing, strengthened on verso. Minor flaws. Dark signatures. Fine condition.This document was signed in blank in Washington, D.C. by President James Madison and Secretary of State Robert Smith soon after they took office on March 4, 1809, and was sent to David Gelston, Collector of the Port of New York to be filled out, signed, and issued from there by the Collector of the Port of New York. The name of the ship and all the required information would be filled out, including the date, May 26, 1809. In part, ""Be it known, That leave and permission are herby granted to Mathew Reed - master or commander of the Brig called the Eliza - of the burthen of 190 tons or thereabouts, lying at present in the port of New York bound for Fayal - and laden with Turpentine & Lumber to depart and proceed with his said Brig on his said voyage, such Brig having been visited, and the said Brig belongs to one or more of the Citizens of the United States of America, and to him or them only ...""Fayal is a Portuguese island in the Azore Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, about 850 miles west of Portugal. Faial's position in the Atlantic and the existence of a sheltered port attracted cargo boats and American whalers who stopped there to load up supplies.The Non-Intercourse Act of March 1, 1809 lifted all embargoes on American shipping except for those bound for British or French ports or their dependencies. Its intent was to damage the economies of the United Kingdom and France. According to Niles' Weekly Register, ""in 1809, in consequence of the embargo and non intercourse act,"" there was an increase in shipping ""to Fayal and the Azores."" During the War of 1812, on the night of September 26-27, 1814, a British warship and several boats filled with sailors and marines attacked an American privateer in the port of Fayal. After repulsing two British attacks and killing one of their commanders, the Americans won a tactical victory in the Battle of Fayal, but scuttled their ship the following morning to prevent it from being captured.David Gelston (1744-1828), a Signer of the Articles of Association in 1775 and a member of the last Continental Congress in 1789, served as Collector of Customs of the Port of New York from 1801-1820."

        A TREATISE ON MARTIAL LAW, AND COURTS-MARTIAL; AS PRACTISED IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

      Charleston, 1809. Original boards. Head of spine slightly chipped. Usual scattered foxing, slight dampstaining in upper margin of first few leaves. Lower forecorner of titlepage torn off, text unaffected. Final free endpaper excised. Overall a very good copy, untrimmed and partially unopened. With the ownership signatures of John K. Kane on the titlepage and front board. Kane was a prominent Philadelphia lawyer and Jacksonian politician, federal judge, and father of explorer Elisha Kent Kane. This is the first important original American work on martial law and courts-martial. Although Stephen Adye's treatise on courts-martial was published in Philadelphia in 1769, it was a thoroughly British work, and its later editions appeared in England. Macomb's book, however, is specifically adapted to United States law and is based on his experience "with the army on the western waters and in the Atlantic states." Macomb was the first student to receive formal training at West Point, and was a major in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers when the present work appeared. A key American legal treatise.

        DELUC (Jean-André)

      1089 1197 - Paris, chez Courcier, 1089 (i.e. 1809), in-8, [4]-395 pages, basane racinée de l'époque, dos lisse et fleuronné, pièce de titre noire, Édition originale peu courante, traduite la même année en anglais, de cette œuvre tardive du polymathe genevois Jean-André Deluc. Issu d'une famille calviniste, Deluc (1727-1817) mena une carrière scientifique centrée sur les sciences naturelles, en parallèle à ses activités commerciales et politiques. Ses premiers travaux, publiés dans les années 1770, concernent les paysages des Alpes et du Jura. À la suite de la faillite de son affaire commerciale en 1773, il choisit d'émigrer à Londres, où il devient membre de la Royal Society et lecteur de la reine Charlotte. Dès lors, il se voue entièrement à ses sujets de prédilection, la géologie et de météorologie, tout en tenant de concilier les conceptions bibliques et géologiques de la formation du monde. Son Traité élémentaire de géologie est tout emprunt de cette réflexion : Deluc s'est en effet efforcé à démontrer que les six jours de la Création correspondent à six époques précédant l'état actuel du globe et que l'émersion des continents résulte du Déluge. A cause de leurs conceptions biblicistes, ses travaux furent longtemps négligés, en dépit du fait qu'il exercèrent une influence, reconnue, sur le jeune baron Cuvier, qui ne suivit cependant pas les opinions transformistes de Deluc au profit de ses thèses catastrophistes. "His orthodoxy, versatility, prolixity, productivity, high social standing, and facility in languages earned him an exalted contemporary position. Georges Cuvier ranked him among the first geologists of his age." Ward & Carozzi n° 633. DSB IV, p. 25-26.

        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.
