        The Town Of Dixan In Abyssinia

      London: William Miller, 1809. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by D. Havell after Henry Salt, on thick wove paper. View of pretty hilltop town 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.

        Essai sur le principe de population, ou exposé des effets passés et présens de l'action de cette cause sur le bonheur du genre humain, suivi de quelques recherches relatives à l'espérance de guérir ou d'adoucir les maux qu'elle entraine. Traduit de l'Anglois par Pierre Prevost. Tome premier - tome troisième

      Paris, chez J.J. Panchoud, Genève, chez le même libraire 1809 - Three volumes in 8vo; pp. XXIII, (1), 424, (6); pp. (4), 395, (3); pp. (4), 392; half calf over blue boards, minor rubbing, spines with some gilding and gilt lettering, untrimmed edges, endpapers a bit soiled or browned, else only occasional browning, clean and crisp, a very good set. 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".

Haüy emphasized the invariability of the form and the composition of the constituent molecule of a species but was forced to admit that the definite proportions were often blurred by heterogeneous materials accidentally mixed with the compound » (DSB).

        The Travels of Capts. Lewis & Clarke [sic], by order of the government of the United States, performed in the years 1804, 1805, & 1806, being upwards of three thousand miles, from St. Louis, by way of the Missouri, and Columbia Rivers, to the Pacific Ocean: containing an account of the indian tribes, who inhabit the western part of the continent unexplored, and unknown before. 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

      Philadelphia: published by Hubbard Lester, 1809. 12mo bound in sixes. (7 1/8 x 4 1/4 inches). 1 folding engraved map (11 1/4 x 9 inches), 1 stipple engraved frontispiece by W.R. Jones, 4 unsigned etched plates with roulette work. 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. Howes 1321; Literature of the Lewis and Clark Expedition 4a.1; Pilling Proof-sheets 2282; Sabin 96499; Shaw & Shoemaker 17911; Streeter sale 3122; Wagner-Camp 8:1.

        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. Stevens & Tree, "Comparative Cartography," 80 (g) in Tooley "The Mapping of America." Not in Phillips.

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."

        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.

        [TWO PENCIL SKETCHES BY WILLIAM DANIELL, AFTER ARCHITECT GEORGE DANCE, SHOWING ARTISTS WILLIAM HODGES AND SAMUEL PEPYS COCKERELL]

      [Np, but possibly London, 1809. Minor toning and soiling. Very good. Two pencil drawings by landscape painter and engraver William Daniell, after drawings by George Dance, possibly executed around the time of Daniell's engraving of the portraits for A COLLECTION OF PORTRAITS SKETCHED FROM THE LIFE SINCE THE YEAR 1793 BY GEORGE DANCE... (London, 1809- 14). Daniell (1769-1837) was an accomplished landscape artist, etcher, and engraver. He traveled with his uncle, renowned landscape painter Thomas Daniell, to India (1786-93), where he assisted his uncle and developed his own skills. He later produced many magnificent views of locales around the globe, particularly of India. In addition to his well-known landscape works, he engraved and published a series of portraits drawn by architect George Dance (1741-1825), some of which were published in a two-volume work in 1809-14. Late in his career Dance turned his hand to other art forms, including music and chalk profile portraits of friends and acquaintances. The two subjects depicted here are fellow artists: Samuel Pepys Cockerell was a fellow architect; and William Hodges was a painter, particularly noted for being the artist on Captain James Cook's second voyage. Each volume of the work published thirty-six portraits with descriptive text about the subject. William Hodges is depicted in the second volume. The engraved portrait faces right, while this sketch faces left, making it a mirror image for printing. The Yale Center for British Art holds not only the published work but also a volume of proof prints, each labeled in manuscript, with the manuscript title, "A Series of Portraits drawn by George Dance Esq. and Engraved by Wm. Daniell." This proof volume is comprised only of portraits, with no text, and includes a further eighty-five engravings beyond the seventy-two published by Daniell in 1809-14. This is particularly interesting in light of the fact that while the portrait of William Hodges appears in the published work, Samuel Pepys Cockerell does not - though he is among the proof prints. Since Dance's original drawings were done in chalk, which is a much looser medium than line-engraving, it is possible that Daniell created these drawings to provide himself with a more defined and delineated image from which to create his engraving. These drawings therefore provided an interesting and important step in the engraving process.

        [LETTER BOOK OF CRAWFORD CARTER, CONTAINING CORRESPONDENCE TO THE RHODE ISLAND MERCHANT FIRM MUNRO, SNOW & MUNRO, DURING HIS SOJOURNS IN THE WEST AND EAST INDIES]

      [Various places, but primarily St. Thomas and Batavia], 1809. Quarto. Original marbled paper wrappers. Some wear at edges, spine lightly worn. Contents bright and clean, in a highly legible hand. Very good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. Letter book and journal of Crawford Carter, agent for the merchant firm of Munro, Snow & Munro. The first twenty- three leaves comprise the letter book, providing copies of correspondence from Carter in the West Indies to Messrs. Munro, Snow and Munro. The letters contain details of Carter's activities for the firm - trying to unload goods at various ports (mainly beef, pork, and nankins, but also coffee and sugar), the prices and quantities of said goods, and the general state of trade in the region. In addition to business news, Carter writes about a devastating fire on the island of St. Thomas: "Since I had the pleasure of writing you on the 25th, this town has been destroyed by a dreadfull fire which commensed about half past seven oclock on the evening of the 22nd, and owing to the inability of the inhabitants to stop it, continued to rage until about 5 oclock the next morning when fortunately the wind shifted and carried the flames out of the direction of the few houses that remained. About fifteen hundred dwelling houses and stores were burnt: it is impossible to make any near calculation respecting the amount of merchandize and furniture destroyed; those who are good judges suppose about six millions of dollars; the town was never known to contain so many valuable goods as there was in it at the time of the fire." He goes on to detail losses to the company, which he considered minor, adding "We were the most fortunate vessel in the harbour." The second half of the volume, nineteen leaves, is written dos-a-dos style. It contains "Copy of a Malay grammar, made at Batavia by an American gentleman during his stay there," "Journal of the Voyage from Providence toward Rio Janeiro in the Ship George & Mary," and several pages of "memorandums" concerning cargo loaded onto the George & Mary, including "10 Large Cases Gin." A note preceding the grammar reads: "'The Malay language, although uncommonly soft, is not possessed of that stressing of metaphor for which most of the languages of the East are so justly famed.' James Harrison M.D., author of a Malay & English grammar published at London 1801." A search for such a work in OCLC proved unfruitful. Also laid into the volume is a single bifolium sheet, docketed as "Papers relating to a loss on Brig Torno. - Settled June 27, 1826." Dated January 4, 1826, the document details damage to the Brig Torno, belonging to Israel Snow, which occurred due to heavy seas while anchored at Gibraltar Bay. The ship was repaired, and this document is testimony to the fact that the ship was damaged by weather and not due to any carelessness on the part of the owners. It has been notarized by Henry Stokes, Notary Public of Gibraltar, and affirmed by Bernard Henry, U.S. Consul at Gibraltar, presumably as a means of collecting insurance to cover the damages and repairs. An interesting manuscript volume, detailing American business transactions in the West Indies.

        THE TRAVELS OF CAPTS. LEWIS & CLARKE [sic], BY ORDER OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, PERFORMED IN THE YEARS 1804, 1805, & 1806, BEING UPWARDS OF THREE THOUSAND MILES, FROM ST. LOUIS, BY WAY OF THE MISSOURI, AND COLUMBIA RIVERS, TO THE PACIFICK OCEAN: CONTAINING AN ACCOUNT OF THE INDIAN TRIBES, WHO INHABIT THE WESTERN PART OF THE CONTINENT UNEXPLORED, AND UNKNOWN BEFORE

      Philadelphia, 1809. Five engraved plates. Antique half calf and paper boards, leather label. Slight paper loss in margin of final four leaves, not affecting text, else very good. First edition of the so-called "Apocrypha edition" 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 bits and pieces from already published works appeared (culled from Gass, Clark, Mackenzie, Carver, and Jefferson's MESSAGE... of 1806), misleading the reader into believing it was the account sanctioned by the government and containing all the information gathered during the journey. Despite its hodgepodge nature, it provided most of the world with its first detailed account of the Lewis and Clark expedition. It further contains five plates, purporting to be of western Indians. One of these is knocked off from the frontispiece of Bartram's TRAVELS...; the others have no earlier appearance that we can trace. The present copy lacks the incredibly rare folding map, which Wheat notes as "the earliest published map with legends stemming from Lewis and Clark." Howes calls this the "counterfeit" edition, and Sabin states that, according to Paltsits, it is "the earliest edition of an unauthorized 'counterfeit' account...." Robert Becker (in Wagner-Camp) incorrectly cites the London map as accompanying this edition. This first Philadelphia edition is quite rare, and is almost invariably found in terrible condition, almost always without the map.

        ALS from Keswick, Dec. 5, 1809, to Ebenezer Elliott, "The Corn Law Rhymer".

      1809 62 lines over three sides of folded quarto leaf, with integral address; several old, unobtrusive folds, one small tear at inner margin repaired with archival tape, damp stain in upper inner margin, sl. affecting text.An extensive letter in which Southey writes to Elliott in response to a request for advice on his poetic endeavours. The senior poet has evidently been sent a manuscript by Elliott, and informs him it will be returned 'by coach (as a cheaper conveyance than the post from hence) ... [with] a copy of my best poem by way of ballast, just to give your papers bulk enough for security'. Southey discusses the content of the manuscript, informing Elliott 'Your plan obviates many of the faults in the Soldier's Love & adds to it some striking things'. He advises, however, that Elliott 'lay this poem by, for experience has taught me that in literary architecture it is better to build anew than to alter & repair upon an old foundation'. The subject of the poem is one that interests him, and even seems to have been one that he considered utilising himself, though a word with a sage head eventually convinced him otherwise: 'I have talked upon that story with Wordsworth, but the difficulties appeared to outweigh the advantages, splendid as they are at first sight.' As an alternative topic, Southey advises that Elliott consult Sharon Turner's

        [FRAMED COLLECTION OF FIVE PROFILE PORTRAITS]

      [Various places, including New York, Philadelphia, & Richmond, 1809. Four images are circular, with a diameter of approximately 2 1/4 inches; one image is oval and approximately 2 1/2 x 2 inches. Matting overleaf black with gold trim around each image. Gilt wood frame, 12 x 9 3/4 inches. Engravings in fine condition. A framed collection of five profile portrait engravings by Charles B.J.F. de Saint-Mémin. The engravings span nearly the entire course of Saint-Mémin's celebrated career as a portraitist in the U.S., represent at least three of the locations where he worked, and reflect an impressive range of portrait types, from the profile of a young girl to that of a founding father in middle age. Charles Balthazar Julien Févret de Saint-Mémin was a young, aristocratic military officer when he fled France during the Revolution in 1790. In 1793 he arrived in New York with his father and soon began pursuing a career in the arts. Applying early training he had received in drawing and an eye for precision, Saint-Mémin quickly taught himself the techniques of engraving and printing, and began producing plans and landscapes of New York. In 1796 he co-founded a business creating profile portraits with the aid of a physiognotrace, a recently invented drafting device that allowed portraitists to capture their sitters' profiles with extreme accuracy. After tracing a subject's profile with the physiognotrace, Saint-Mémin would complete a portrait in chalk, reduce and copy it to a copper plate using a pantograph, and finally engrave the plate and produce a series of prints. Each patron would receive the original drawing, the plate, and, typically, a dozen engravings. Saint-Mémin's business was wildly successful, and for fourteen years it sustained him as he traveled through the eastern U.S. capturing the likenesses of many leading American figures of the day. Ellen G. Miles' extensive work on Saint- Mémin, published by the National Portrait Gallery, describes every aspect of his career and lists nearly a thousand of his known portraits. Of the portraits in the present collection, the earliest is that of Jane Macomb Kennedy, drawn and engraved in New York in 1797. Jane Macomb was born in Detroit in 1776, and in 1794 married Robert Kennedy, a Scottish nobleman born in New Jersey. Ellen Miles devotes a full page to details of Lady Kennedy's engraving, using it to illustrate Saint-Mémin's use of the roulette in shading and in executing dark backgrounds. She notes that Saint- Mémin would engrave a background after making an image, rather than using a mezzotinting technique, in which the entire plate is textured before the image is added (pp.72- 75). From 1798 to 1803, Saint-Mémin operated in Philadelphia, where Miles notes that he developed his own drawing style of lively, emphatic tones with strong black and white contrasts. Two of the present engravings come from that period, those of "Miss de la Grange" and Theodore Sedgwick. Miss de la Grange, probably no more than seven years old in her portrait, is a fairly uncommon example of a child subject in Saint-Mémin's work; she poses here in a princess-cut dress and a pearl necklace. Theodore Sedgwick was about fifty-five years old when his profile was made in 1801, the final year of his term as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Sedgwick was one of many prominent American politicians drawn by Saint-Mémin in Philadelphia. The final major phase of Saint-Mémin's career in the U.S. took place in Richmond and Charleston between 1807 and 1809. In 1808, while working in Richmond, he produced the portrait included here of Charles Everett, a Virginia physician and close friend of James Monroe. The latest portrait in the present collection is that of Frances Cadwalader Erskine, made in Philadelphia or Washington in 1809, one of the few portraits produced during Saint-Mémin's post-itinerant period. Mrs. Erskine, another American-born wife of a British aristocrat, is depicted here in an unusual oval-shaped engraving. The portrait was made after Saint-Mémin left Charleston in 1809, during or after his journey home to his family in New Jersey. In 1810, Saint-Mémin used the physiognotrace for the last time and returned to France for two years before moving back permanently in 1814. This fine and representative set of Saint-Mémin's American portraiture comes from the noted collection of Richard Townley Haines Halsey. Halsey, a Princeton graduate and stockbroker by trade, was an intense Americanist. He believed that by promoting the history of American craftsmanship, modern American industry would be better protected against the intrusion of foreign-made goods. Halsey began collecting in the 1890s and continued through the 1920s. His mission to advance modern scholarship in American decorative arts reached its zenith in 1924 with the opening of the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Halsey gave liberally of his expertise and his money to the project, the successful completion of which cemented his reputation as America's leading authority on the subject. Afterwards he pioneered a course at St. John's College in Maryland that explored the marriage between American arts and crafts, and American history, which became the model for a similar course taught by John Marshall Phillips at Yale University. Halsey ended his professional career as a research assistant with the Franklin Papers at Yale University.

        A voyage to Abyssinia, and travels into the interior of that country, executed under the orders of the British government, in the years 1809 and 1810; in which are included, an account of the Portuguese settlements on the east coast of Africa.

      First U.S. edition and printed by Lydia Bailey, following the London first of 1814. Salt, a British traveller and Egyptologist, first visited Ethiopia in 1805, and returned in 1809 on a diplomatic mission intended to promote ties between the British government and the Emperor of Abyssinia. The Voyage gives Salt's observations of Ethiopian customs, manners, dress, cuisine, and music, along with the factual details of his diplomatic achievements -- or lack thereof, in terms of concrete agreements -- followed by an appendix comparing vocabulary words from various languages spoken along "the Coast of Africa, from Mosambique to the borders of Egypt, with a few others spoken in the Interior of that Continent" (p. 395). This is an untrimmed copy in original boards, with 24 pages of advertising for Carey publications bound in at the front of the volume. The preliminary map, engraved by John Bower, has hand-colored border lines; this American edition does not call for the plates found in the English first, but does include in-text depictions of several "Ethiopic inscriptions."
