19 pp. 8vo, late 19th-cent. limp marbled boards (head & tail of spine worn), gilt title on spine. Paris: Lot & Regnault Delalande, 1809.The uncommon sale catalogue of Choffard (1730-1809), engraver and draughtsman, who executed famous portraits of La Condamine, Napoleon, as well as the plates for a number of celebrated illustrated books. Regnault Delalande forgoes an extended biographical sketch and supplies but a footnote, on page 6, regarding the deceased. The expert also announces that most of the objects within each lot will be auctioned off separately.The catalogue describes 171 lots in total; however, we can tell that Choffard's working collection of illustrated books and prints was of quite considerable size. A number of the preliminary lots contain hundreds of individual items. His library contains the important art and architecture books of the 18th century, along with the great illustrated books of his time. Lots 159 and 160 offer Choffard's tools. According to the copy at the Hermitage annotated by Regnault-Delalande, the sale netted 5382.75 francs.A very good copy with exceptional provenance; with engraved bookplates of the Goncourt brothers (verso of front free-endpaper), Gaston Pannier (inside of upper cover), and stamp of the Bibliothèque Heim (verso of title-page).

Leg. piena pelle coeva, cornicetta in oro ai piatti, dorsi ornati con tasselli bicolori; ai piatti del primo volume riquadro in verde con impresso in oro: "Bottacchi Giuseppe - Prix d'Emulation". Qualche fioritura, ma buon es. (5912) Prima edizione, alquanto rara, di quest'opera dell'illustre patriota e storico canavesano Carlo Botta (1766-1837), a Parigi dal 1802 come membro del Corpo Legislativo; essa costituisce la sua prima vasta opera storica, e si chiude col discorso di Washington al Congresso nel 1783 ed il suo ritiro a Mount Vernon. "Il leitmotiv dell'opera è costituito dall'amore per la libertà, che avrebbe sempre caratterizzato la società americana dal sorgere delle prime colonie nel nuovo mondo fino al distacco dalla madrepatria... Il rapresentante di questo diffuso sentimento di libertà... era George Washington, polemicamente contrapposto a Napoleone, come la rivoluzione americana era contrapposta alla rivoluzione francese. La narrazione, basata su un'attenta utilizzazione di carte topografiche, di diari, di una vasta pubblicistica inglese e francese, oltre che americana, abbonda anche di descrizioni di battaglie e di discorsi... attribuiti ai vari personaggi" (D.B.I., XIII/p. 367). L'opera del Botta fu tuttavia un insuccesso editoriale, e rimase per buona parte invenduta; narra il Dionisotti che il Botta la vendette come carta straccia al suo droghiere, negli anni successivi...

(Lewis and Clark) [Lewis, Meriwether, and William CLARK]
London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1809. First English edition. Engraved folding map at front. ix, [1], 309 pp. 8vo. With map. First English edition of the Lewis and Clark "apocrypha." Denounced by Elliot Coues as a "wretched meretricious compilation," this anthology of previously printed works was nonetheless one of the earliest accounts of the celebrated Lewis and Clark expedition, and it remained a major source of information about the West until the explorers' own official narrative was finally published in 1814. The texts printed here include President Jefferson's Message ... communicating Discoveries of 1806; letters of William Clark; and plagiarized portions of the works of Jonathan Carver, Alexander Mackenzie, and Patrick Gass. The one original contribution made by the apocryphal Travels was the "Map of the Country Inhabited by the Western Tribes of Indians," which Wheat identified as "the earliest published map with legends stemming from Lewis and Clark" Wagner-Camp 8:2; Graff 2479; Howes L321; Pilling 2283; Sabin 40827; Wheat, Mapping the Trans-Mississippi West 294.

Berlin, Charles Fréderic Amelang for the authors, 1809-1820 (-1840). Folio (485 x 335mm, 2 text vols & 525 x 355mm, atlas). 22 parts bound in 3 volumes. With 1 lithographed title (a garland of flowers), 3 uncoloured plates of instructions and 100 (of 111) plates, 98 of them stipple-engravings of which 93 printed in colours and finished by hand, and two (nos. 20 and 22) coloured lithographs, engraved by Bollinger, Clar, Dumbte, Guimpel, Haas, Krethlow, Meyer, Schubert and Wachmann after drawings by G.W. Voelker and Hoffmansegg, French and Latin text. Recent blind pressed calf, spines in 6 compartments. One of the most complete copies to come on the market. It lacks 11 plates but has more text than the Kenneth K.Mackenzie, Horticultural Society of New York, Robert de Belder copy (Christie's New York 4 June 1997), which was the most complete copy to come on the market since decades./Only edition of this rare work, the technical and artistic equal of any of the 19th century flower books, and a work that has escaped the notice of historians of botanical illustration. It was produced by Count Hoffmannsegg, contemporary of Redouté, whose work it rivals. In our opinion it surpasses the latter's 'Jardin de la Malmaison', perhaps technically the finest of Redouté's oeuvres. The preface confidently predicts 'we are certain that, despite the fact that this will be the first such work to be published in Germany, it will bear comparison with other floras, and even with all similar works published to this day', a boast that it more than fulfils. All plates illustrate species newly discove … [Click Below for Full Description]

Shee, Martin Archer
London: William Miller, 1809. First edition. 8vo. xxviii, (4), 400 pp. American painter Washington Allston's copy, with his ownership signature at the head of the half title and with a small pen-and-ink sketch (2 1/2 x 2 inches) of a man's head, perhaps of classical character, at the bottom of the half-title (facial features inked through). Allston (1773-1843), a native of South Carolina, graduated from Harvard in 1800 ("where he exhibited a flair for caricature") and studied under Benjamin West in London and at various cities on the continent, remaining in Europe, successfully painting and writing poetry, until 1818, returning to America only in 1808 to marry the sister of William Ellery Channing. He lived out his years in Boston "failing to bear out his earlier promise" (DAB). Some light foxing, but a very good, untrimmed copy, with a wonderful association. Original boards (very rubbed and worn, especially corners and edges), rebacked with blue paper, new leather spine label and endpapers. (#5998).

Porter, Miss [Jane (1776-1850)]
Flatbush (N.Y.) & New York: Riley, 1809. Second American edition. 12mo. Porter's first acknowledged book which appeared in Boston with "First American Edition" on title-page and Flatbush (Vols. 1 & 2) and then New York (for Vols. 3 & 4) in the same year, 1809. An historical novel loosely based on the adventures of the Polish General Kosciuszko, the story centers on a young Polish officer exiled in London. To judge by the number of reprints, it was extremely popular -- indeed, Miss Porter's most successful work. Although Jane Porter claims in her foreword of 1831 that the 'historical' romance Thaddeus of Warsaw (1803) was her first substantial publication, Fraser's Magazine names her as author of The Spirit of the Elbe (1799), a romance in the German taste. An unpublished letter indicates that The Two Princes of Persia: Addressed to Youth (1801), a moralistic fable published under the name I. Porter, was also her work. Neither was kindly treated by contemporary reviewers, which may explain Porter's unwillingness to admit authorship. Doggett, Long Island Printing, #302, p. 126; Shaw & Shoemaker 18429-32. For first edition, cf. Sadleir 1972, Wolff 5608 & Summers, p. 530. Provenance: signed Wm M. Summers on front pastedown and his ink stamp on titles. Half contemporary calf and marbled boards. Covers worn, vol II leaning, both vols. lack ffep., wear to titles, text toned and foxed.

Coëssin, François-Guillaume].
Paris, Le Blanc & Gernery, 1809. 8vo. (16), 251 pp. Bound in contemporary half calf with green corners; gilt title on spine; red silk divider. Very rare sole edition of this proto-Socialist work, being the first exposition of Coessin's "Théorie des Formes Sociales". According to Weill, Coessin (1779-1843) was one of the first "acolytes habituels" of Henri de Saint-Simon. "Coessin imagined a mystical socialism, expounded in his 'Neuf Livres', which interested more than a few future Saint-Simonians, for example Hippolyte Carnot" (Weill, Un Precurseur du Socialisme: Saint-Simon et son Oeuvre, pp. 15f.). Coessin first voyaged to Cayenne in South America in order to found a utopian society with his fellow Saint-Simonian, Jean-François Clouet. He aimed to elevate individuals to a higher spiritual plane so as to engender a harmonious and egalitarian society; as one of the early generation of proto-Socialists, he had been strongly influenced by the French Revolution and its anti-elitist aims. Notably, Coessin had read Adam Smith and refers to him frequently, and usually critically, in the introduction to the present work. Smith's emphasis on healthy competition and free industry in "The Wealth of Nations" was anathema to Coessin; yet he still acknowledges some of the "mathematical rigour" and "eternal truth" (preface, p. ix) of Smith's ideas. - The "Neuf Livres" was Coessin's first published work, following his return from Guyana. - Binding a little rubbed; otherwise a very fresh copy.

BURNETT, James, Lord MONBODDO
1809. This set, formerly in the library of the Society of Advocates of Aberdeen (with neat ownership marks to heads of title-pages), comprises second editions of volumes I - III, volume I with genuine “large Additions and Corrections,” and volume II (printed as late as 1809), “To which are annexed Three Dissertations [on Greek, and the composition of the ancients]. And also an appendix, containing the author’s last additions.” Volumes IV - VI are first editions, concluding in 1792. This combination represents Monboddo’s final text. As Monboddo was an Aberdonian and a long-time member of the Society one suspects that the library was aware that these texts were the desirable ones. ECSB 588 (noting Monboddo’s Darwinian theories); Alston iii/842: ‘A work of fundamental importance, covering most aspects of the study of language'. Monboddo on language is among the most ambitious literary undertakings of the later eighteenth century. The notice in the 'Edinburgh Magazine and Review' was filled with scorn, but Monboddo is today regarded as a pioneer in the study of the origin and transmission of language, and his writings have been receiving the sympathetic revaluation they deserve. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 6 volumes, 8vo, errata leaf present in vols V and VI, without engraved portrait as issued and as so often, scattered light foxing, generally good and fresh, bound in mid-nineteenth century half blue calf with tan morocco labels.

Tübingen, J. G. Cotta, 1795-1809. Umfangreiche, geschlossene Folge, darin die komplette Reihe der von Posselt seit Beginn bis zu seinem Freitod 1804 herausgegebenen Zeitschrift; so von größter Seltenheit. Die Zeitschrift bildete das Gegenstück zu Archenholz' norddeutscher 'Minerva'. "Unter den deutschen Journalisten, die der Revolution ihre Sympathien bewahrten, ragte E. L. Posselt hervor. Erfüllt von dem Gedanken des antiken Staatsbürgertums, hatte er die Französische Revolution mit wärmster Teilnahme begrüßt. Ein Bewunderer der Girondisten, durch den von ihm verabscheuten Terrorismus am Glauben an das Evangelium der Ideen von 1789 nicht erschüttert, begann er . mit der Herausgabe einer Monatsschrift, der 'Europäischen Annalen'" (zit. nach A. Stern). Die Zeitschrift genoss damals einen hervorragenden Ruf und wurde nach Lichtenberg von der englischen Monatsschrift 'The Monthly Magazine' zum besten politischen Journal des Jahres gewählt. Posselt verbürgt sich in seiner Ankündigung für "eine vollständige, unpartheyische, bescheiden freimüthige Darstellung , ein treues historisches Gemählde von Europa, so wie jedesmal dessen neueste Gestalt ist." Seine 'Annalen' sind ein faszinierender Spiegel ihrer Zeit. Sie berichten z. B. über Carnots Feldzug, Frankreichs Verfassungen, den Baseler Frieden, Washingtons Rücktritt als Präsident, den englisch-holländischen Krieg, Frankreichs Seekrieg, über die geheime Convention zwischen dem König von Preußen und der fränkischen Republik, die Teilung Polens, über Napoleons Feldzüge in Syrien und Ägypten, Heft 2 von 1800 mit einem ausführlichen … [Click Below for Full Description]

S.D. Delacroix avertit quil a vu Madame Cavé ...Nous pourrons nous rendre chez elle mardi prochain à 3heures : je nai point arreté avec elle un tems plus long parce que ses élèves vont à la campagne et quelle va suspendre bientôt son cours.

Slightly later Portuguese diced calf, expertly rebacked, original gilt-tooled spine preserved; pp. viii, [17]-295; 244, [20, general index] (collation conforms with the one given by the National Library of Portugal); large folding map of Portugal, frontispiece to vol.II with view of the Bay of Lisbon; rubbing to extremities, foxing to map and preliminaries and frontispiece of vol.II, else a very good copy; provenance: engraved bookplate of H. Silvester inside front cover. Very rare first English edition, translated from the French (first, 1798) and updated by J. Fr. Bourgoing. The author Baron de Cormatin was a French officer and supporter of the Revolution who placed his manuscript in the library of the Duc de Chatelet, which led to confusion about the authorship. The work is a complete topography of the motherland and the Portuguese colonies on the other side of the Atlantic. Information on Portugal was much in demand in Britain, due to the Peninsular War (the decisive second battle of Porto ended with an Anglo-Portuguese victory in May 1809), trade relations and the settlement of the entire court of Lisbon in Brazil, which made Rio de Janeiro the capital of Portugal from 1808 until 1821, and opened up important trade for Britain with the largest country in Latin America. Provenance: We believe that this copy belonged to a member of the family of the naval officer Sir Philip Carteret, second baronet Silvester (1777-1828), who in 1812 was stationed in Lisbon onboard the 46-gun frigate Pomone.

HOFFMANSEGG, JOHANN CENTURIUS & JOHANN HEINRICH FRIEDRICH LINK.
Berlin, Charles Fr. Amerlang, 1809-1840. 457,436 pp. text & 94 (incl. 85 col. ) copper-engraveded plates (2 instruction-plates, numbered B & C, included). Text & plates (unbound) together with 16, nicely decorated, lithographed covers in four modern cloth boxes. Large folio.J.C.Hoffmannsegg, head of the botanical garden in Berlin, and H.F.Link, made around 1800 a trip to Portugal. It resulted in the description and drawing of 150 wild plants. A selection of 114 plantes was made to be included in the "Flore Portugaise". The plan was to publish the work in 28 issues with 114 engraved plates. Hoffmansegg died in 1809 and the work was discontinued. Sources say that part of the text sheets were destroyed in this period. Finally, the work was continued in 1840 by Verlag Amelang. The publication of the plates, printed in colour and finished by hand, was continued with the help of the Prussian governement. It is unknown if all the 114 plates were published. Most of the plates were drawn by J.C.Hoffmansegg, but also by the porcelain-painter G.W.Völcker. The plates were engraved by the Haas brothers, FW.Bollinger, August Clar & J.F.Krethow. The lithographed covers belong to the incunabula of lithography.

Bryant, William Cullen
Printed for the Author, By E.G. House, Boston. 35,[1]pp. Printed self wrapper, bound up in late 19th century full calf, gilt, t.e.g., by Stikeman. Binding a bit rubbed and darkened at spine and extremities; internally a very good or better, partially untrimmed copy. Second edition, enlarged, of Bryant's first book. The first edition, printing the title poem only, appeared in June of 1808, attributed only "To a Youth of Thirteen," and this edition, bearing the author's name for the first time, appeared in February of 1809. Both were printed at Bryant's father's expense, and the author declined to reprint the title poem in his lifetime, partially due to an energetic assault on the character of Thomas Jefferson contained therein. The scarcity of the first edition is such that this edition has played proxy for this title in a number of notable assemblages of authors' first books. BAL 1583. [Attributes: First Edition]

[Politics]
[New York, 1809. Broadside, 12 x 7 inches. Old fold lines, lightly creased. Very minor wear and loss at some folds. Minor soiling. About very good. Broadside comparing the economic differences between the Federalist administration of a State in 1800, and its Democratic administration of 1808, based on the comptroller's reports for 1801 and 1809. The state is most likely New York. It is signed simple, "Retribution." The text pointedly compares the two administrations, saying: "When public servants have been employed on their own strong assurances of a strict adherence to economy - of disinterested zeal to serve the state - and an honest determination to correct the abuses of their immediate predecessors, it is also proper to compare their acts with those of their predecessors. In this way, the people may ascertain truly the relative merits of each. In 1800, the government of this state was virtually taken out of the hands of the federalists, and transferred by the suffrages of the people to the democrats. The statement below, made from existing laws and the Comptroller's annual reports, furnishes indisputable evidence to form a just opinion of the result." The figures of the report follow. Not in Shaw & Shoemaker. Only two copies located in OCLC, at the American Antiquarian Society and at New York Historical.
