        Arabesques Mythologiques, ou les Attributs de Toutes les Divinites de la Fable

      Paris: Chez Charles Barrois, 1810. First Edition. Quarter Morocco, Marbled Boards. Very Good. 8vo. 22 by 13 cm. xxx, 166 pp. With 54 color plates. The plates are color stipple engravings finished by hand. The plates are of elaborate decorative iconology, much of which is tantamount to classic trophies, with interesting juxtapositions of botanical, zoological, figurative and inanimate objects. These arrangements range from just a few elements to extravagant visual cornupcopias. Each of these illustrations relates to a character out of mythology, and the text explains directly and indirectly the connection. In essence, then, the book is an updated version of the then hoary emblem book, but one that is particularly curious inasmuch as its presumed target audience was children, and such a heavy dose of decorative emblems surely was not typical fare for such readers. On the other hand, one can imagine architects and designers of the era mining the illustrations for inspiration in terra cotta relief, doree mounts and other expressions of decorative exuberance. Gumuchian 2699. Scattered soiling and light foxing. Moderate wear to the cover.

        William Hodges R.A

      London: William Daniel, 1810. Soft ground etching, 270 x 200mm. Very good condition. Profile portrait of William Hodges (1744-1797) member of the Royal Academy and the artist of Captain's Cook's Second Voyage. Engraved by William Daniell (1769-1837) also of the Royal academy, after a portrait drawn in 1793 by George Dance as part of a series of portraits of his fellow Royal Academicians which he undertook between 1793 and 1810. The original pencil and chalk drawing from which this engraving is taken is in the collection of the Royal Academy of Arts.Hodges was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1786 and Royal Academician in 1789 and continued to exhibit at the Royal Academy until 1794. He is included in a group portrait of Royal Academicians (1793) by Henry Singleton. Hodges' ability was highly regarded among his fellow artists. However, during the Cook voyage he developed an individual response to the problem of representing light and meteorological conditions which brought criticism from a society not yet ready for a departure from recognized traditions. His sudden death in Brixham on 6 March 1797 was precipitated by a fever and gout in the stomach.

        Fall of the Rhydol

      London: Published by White and Co, 1810. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving. Good condition apart from several skillfully repaired minor tears in the margins, a small foxing mark in the left margin, and a few light waterstains in the right margin, one of which extends slightly into the top right corner of the image. A picturesque view of the torrential falls of the River Ryhdol, near Hafod House from "Tour to Hafod," a fine collection of plates depicting the mansion and its surrounding landscape engraved by Stadler after drawings by Smith. Comprised of 15 views, Tour to Hafod also included comprehensive descriptive text by the scientist and collector James Edward Smith. The work was most likely intended as a tribute to the social benefactor and literary man Thomas Johnes (1748-1816), who devoted much of his life to his home region of Cardiganshire, where he served as a lord-lieutenant, a colonel in the militia, and an MP for the borough of Cardigan. Located in Cardiganshire, Western Wales, Hafodychtryd or Hafod for short, was Johnes's country estate. Hafod House, his principal residence, was erected in 1785 in the "gothic" style of Thomas Baldwin of Bath. Upon settling there, Johnes set about ameliorating the conditions of the local poor by providing them with comfortable housing and employing them in a planting project that would beautify the neighboring areas. In addition to his concern for social welfare, he was extremely interested in improving parts of Cardiganshire and actively involved himself in the building of roads and bridges. Born in Irthington in 1749, John "Warwick" Smith was an accomplished topographical draughtsman and watercolourist, who enjoyed the generous patronage of the Earl of Warwick. In addition to his fine engravings of Italy, he contributed numerous illustrations to topographical publications such as Select Views in Great Britain (1812), Views of the Lakes of Cumberland (1791-5), Tour through Wales (1794), and A Tour to Hafod (1810). In 1805, Smith became a member of the Watercolour Society, where he frequently exhibited his works. Cf. Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland, 533; cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        The Philosophy of Domestic Economy; as exemplified in the mode of warming, ventilating, washing, drying, & cooking,.. adopted in the Derbyshire General Infirmary...

      FIRST EDITION. The first successful attempt to provide rationally planned domestic services on a large scale. The Derbyshire Infirmary, completed c.1810, was famed for the advanced and effective nature of its technical services. These were designed by Sylvester himself, but the heating and ventilating system, later copied by others, was designed by Sylvester’s close friend William Strutt, who had installed hot air heating in his epoch-making Derby Mill of 1792/3, the first iron-framed building in the world.“In this book Sylvester gives an account of the project, fully describing the layout of the building from basement to attic together with the appliances employed. Chief amongst these is the air warming stove, for the Infirmary had a hot-air heating system similar to that in the Derby Mill. It was also renowned for its water closets with self-ventilating devices activated by the opening and closing of the door. The laundry and washing machines were both adapted from designs by Strutt for use in the processing of textiles...” (Elton Engineering Books, Catalogue 2). The Infirmary was unfortunately rebuilt in the 1890s and none of Sylvester's work survives. His book is thus the only record of this pioneer building.The book is dedicated to William Strutt, whose son Edward became Lord Belper. This is probably therefore the dedicatee’s own copy.This copy is bound with Rev. Samuel Pegge’s Sketch of the history of Bolsover and Peak Castles, in the county of Derby (1785), and White Watson’s Delineation of the strata of Derbyshire (1811).4to, 1 leaf (title), pp. ix [i.e. xi], 11, 62, engraved frontispiece of the Derbyshire General Infirmary and 10 detailed plates, erratum slip. Some foxing on the frontispiece and plates and offsetting on the title and last page. Bound with two other works (see below) in near-contemporary purple calf, sides panelled in blind and gilt, spine gilt (surface slightly rubbed), marbled edges and endpapers, a lovely copy. Armorial Belper bookplate (see below).

        Proceedings of a Gen.[eral] Court Martial held Fort George 1810 signed by Isaac Brock

      Fort George, UC, 1810. No binding. NO OTHER ORIGINAL BRITISH (CANADA) EARLY 1800's COURT MARTIAL DOCUMENT FOUND[20pp. with blank on recto of docket p.20] 20cm x 32cm (7-3/4 x 12-5/8 inches) A unique, rare and important piece of Canadian military history. This is the official 20 page 1810 report on the Court Martial of Private Alexander Waddle, at Fort George in Upper Canada, presided over and signed by Brigadier General Isaac Brock, President, and military commander of Upper Canada and soon to become the 'hero of Upper Canada' Counter-signed by the Governor of Canada, Sir James Henry Craig. Alexander Waddle of the 100th Regiment was convicted by Brock's 2 day court martial for desertion.The 20 foolscap pages (paper Britannia watermarked) was bound by a with a small piece of vellum in the top left corner with a green cord, now broken and loose. It was originally folded down the middle of the 12-5/8 inch length, now flat. A summary title docketing information on the final leaf, page 20, in very faint old red ink reads: 'Laid before the Prince Regent 23 March 1811' confirms the officially that it arrived in London at Horse Guards and formally presented.Condition: The paper is browned with some finger-marking and the text is written in two hands (2pp by Waddle of his defence). More soiling on the last couple of pages at the bottom. Page 18 has a very small pin hole likely from folding not affecting any hand-writing. Page 19 is blank and page 20 is in poor condition with doing, tears and a 1/4 hole in the center - no hand-writing affected. In good condition overall. Even a casual student of Brock and the beginnings of the War of 1812 will totally agree British desertions to USA were a serious and undermining concern that Brock faced in 1805 shortly after his arrival til his death in 1812.So little is known and written about this issue and in fact there appears to be no other court martial documents to be found from 1805 to 1820 relating to the British before and after the War of 1812 until now. The following comment promoting a CBC documentary I think summarizes the situation well, especially the last statement…When the War of 1812 was declared… Canada had 500,000 people (some of whom had recently been Americans) to America's seven million. Brock had only 1,600 troops to defend a 1,200 mile border. And he had the same worries Guy Carleton had had in 1774: Would the citizens fight the enemy or embrace them?"My situation is most critical," Brock wrote to the adjutant-general in Montreal, "not from anything the enemy can do but from the disposition of the people - the population, believe me, is essentially bad - a full belief possesses them all that this province must inevitably succumb... Most of the people have lost all confidence. I, however, speak loud and look big."It was difficult to look big given the state of affairs. To compound his problems there was rampant desertion in the Canadian militia, many of them going over to the Americans. Quoted from the People's History produced by CBC The account of the two day trial over the 28th and 29th of August 1810 begins with the formal warrant for the court martial 'from Sir James Henry Craig K.B. General and Commander of His Majesty's Forces in North America' and a reading of the charges.'Brigadier General Isaac Brock' as President, presided over the hearings. There were thirteen other officers who were members of the Court Martial some of which which included; Lieutenant Colonel John Vincent, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Ellice and J B Clegg performing the legal role of Judge Advocate.Major George Taylor who recounts the claims of a conspiracy masterminded by Waddle to escape into the 'States' using a canoe. There follows a vivid account of the pursuit of the escaping man to cross to the nearby island of Bois blanc. In his cross examination Waddle denies the charge against him. The account of Waddle's defence tells a different story of course. The verdict of the court found Waddle guilty with the sentence 'to be transported as a Felon for life.'This is signed: 'Isaac Brook B[rigadie]r Gen[era]l L[ord] Presid[en]t' also by Clegg and counter-signed: 'Approv'd J H Craig Gen[era]' and a 2 page "Defence" signed by Alex. Waddle.J.B. Glegg purchased the rank of captain in 1803. In 1810 Brock appointed John Baskerville (sometimes spelled Baskervyle) Glegg as his ADC. Glegg fought in the Battle of Queenston Heights and was praised for his role by Brock's successor, Major General Roger Sheaffe. As Brock's surviving ADC, as well as close friend, he had the principal role in arranging Brock's funeral on 16 October. Subsequently, he was appointed acting ADC to Sheaffe.General Sir James Henry Craig was a British military officer and colonial administrator. He arrived in Canada to take up the appointments of governor-in-chief and commander of the forces in October 1807-1811. He strongly supported Brock in strengthening the military for the expected War of 1812.Waddle returned to England before being transported to Tasmania aboard the Indefatigable in June 1812 where he appears to have prospered, being granted town allotments in Launceston, marrying and becoming a wealthy merchant, even presenting himself as a free man, finally dying in 1852 some forty years after the man who presided over his court martial.

        A BOUND COLLECTION OF TWENTY EARLY 19th-CENTURY AMERICAN MUSIC SHEETS].

      [Mainly New York, Philadelphia, and Boston. ca. 1795-1810]. - [38]pp. Folio. Modern backstrip over contemporary marbled paper- covered boards, spine label and endpapers renewed. Corners worn, boards rubbed. Minor foxing and toning, some dampstaining. The second page of "The Moment is Sad" is lacking, but otherwise a complete offering. Good. A wonderful collection of early American sheet music, mostly American imprints, most printed on two pages. The printers of these early sheets include some of the most notable names of the period, such as Hewitt, Graupner, Blake, and Paff. Dichter & Shapiro, in the Introduction to their EARLY AMERICAN SHEET MUSIC, include these four publishers in a list of names they deem "eminently worth while." The highlights of the songs within the book are as follows: Michael Fortune. "Jefferson & Liberty. A New Song. To the Air of Jefferson's March." Philadelphia. 1801. First edition. The most notable music sheet in this collection. Fortune, an Irish immigrant, wrote the song to commemorate Jefferson's election and sent Jefferson a copy of the song. The music was published by the first American antiquarian bookseller, N.G. Dufief, who at the time he published this was trying to sell Jefferson Benjamin Franklin's library for the Library of Congress. For whatever reasons (jealousy? self-interest?) Jefferson turned him down, and Dufief later auctioned it, in 1803. Perhaps Dufief hoped to advance his sale by sponsoring this publication. Very rare, with only one copy listed in OCLC, at Oxford University. Wolf 4607. Shaw & Shoemaker 734. "The Downfall of Paris." Boston. [1806]. First state, with no page number. One printed page of music, with no lyrics. Wolfe 2737. "The Battle of the Nile: A Favorite Patriotic Song." Philadelphia. [ca. 1804]. First printing by this publisher. A paean to Nelson's victory over Napoleon in Egypt. Wolfe 461. Mozart. "Away with Melancholy." New York. [ca. 1795]. An early printing of this song, an excerpt from THE MAGIC FLUTE. Sonneck & Upton, p.35. Edward Smith Briggs. "A Hindustani Girls Song. Tis thy will and I must leave thee." New York. [ca. 1800]. "Soon a british fair will charm thee, thou, alas! Her smiles must woo / but tho' she to rapture warm thee, don't forget thy poor HIN-DOO." Sonneck & Upton, p. 188. [Pierre Gaveaux]. "La Pipe de Tabac. A Favorite French Song." New York. [ca. 1800]. Not in Wolfe. Sonneck & Upton, p. 332. [Pierre Gaveaux]. "The Dish of Tea or Ladies Answer to the Pipe Tabac." [New York. 1802]. Wolfe 2896. Sonneck & Upton, p. 110.

        Proceedings of a Gen.[eral] Court Martial held Fort George 1810 signed by Isaac Brock

      Fort George, UC, 1810. No binding. NO OTHER ORIGINAL BRITISH (CANADA) EARLY 1800's COURT MARTIAL DOCUMENT FOUND[20pp. with blank on recto of docket p.20] 20cm x 32cm (7-3/4 x 12-5/8 inches) A unique, rare and important piece of Canadian military history. This is the official 20 page 1810 report on the Court Martial of Private Alexander Waddle, at Fort George in Upper Canada, presided over and signed by Brigadier General Isaac Brock, President, and military commander of Upper Canada and soon to become the 'hero of Upper Canada' Counter-signed by the Governor of Canada, Sir James Henry Craig. Alexander Waddle of the 100th Regiment was convicted by Brock's 2 day court martial for desertion.The 20 foolscap pages (paper Britannia watermarked) was bound by a with a small piece of vellum in the top left corner with a green cord, now broken and loose. It was originally folded down the middle of the 12-5/8 inch length, now flat. A summary title docketing information on the final leaf, page 20, in very faint old red ink reads: 'Laid before the Prince Regent 23 March 1811' confirms the officially that it arrived in London at Horse Guards and formally presented.Condition: The paper is browned with some finger-marking and the text is written in two hands (2pp by Waddle of his defence). More soiling on the last couple of pages at the bottom. Page 18 has a very small pin hole likely from folding not affecting any hand-writing. Page 19 is blank and page 20 is in poor condition with doing, tears and a 1/4 hole in the center - no hand-writing affected. In good condition overall. Even a casual student of Brock and the beginnings of the War of 1812 will totally agree British desertions to USA were a serious and undermining concern that Brock faced in 1805 shortly after his arrival til his death in 1812.So little is known and written about this issue and in fact there appears to be no other court martial documents to be found from 1805 to 1820 relating to the British before and after the War of 1812 until now. The following comment promoting a CBC documentary I think summarizes the situation well, especially the last statement…When the War of 1812 was declared… Canada had 500,000 people (some of whom had recently been Americans) to America's seven million. Brock had only 1,600 troops to defend a 1,200 mile border. And he had the same worries Guy Carleton had had in 1774: Would the citizens fight the enemy or embrace them?"My situation is most critical," Brock wrote to the adjutant-general in Montreal, "not from anything the enemy can do but from the disposition of the people - the population, believe me, is essentially bad - a full belief possesses them all that this province must inevitably succumb... Most of the people have lost all confidence. I, however, speak loud and look big."It was difficult to look big given the state of affairs. To compound his problems there was rampant desertion in the Canadian militia, many of them going over to the Americans. Quoted from the People's History produced by CBC The account of the two day trial over the 28th and 29th of August 1810 begins with the formal warrant for the court martial 'from Sir James Henry Craig K.B. General and Commander of His Majesty's Forces in North America' and a reading of the charges.'Brigadier General Isaac Brock' as President, presided over the hearings. There were thirteen other officers who were members of the Court Martial some of which which included; Lieutenant Colonel John Vincent, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Ellice and J B Clegg performing the legal role of Judge Advocate.Major George Taylor who recounts the claims of a conspiracy masterminded by Waddle to escape into the 'States' using a canoe. There follows a vivid account of the pursuit of the escaping man to cross to the nearby island of Bois blanc. In his cross examination Waddle denies the charge against him. The account of Waddle's defence tells a different story of course. The verdict of the court found Waddle guilty with the sentence 'to be transported as a Felon for life.'This is signed: 'Isaac Brook B[rigadie]r Gen[era]l L[ord] Presid[en]t' also by Clegg and counter-signed: 'Approv'd J H Craig Gen[era]' and a 2 page "Defence" signed by Alex. Waddle.J.B. Glegg purchased the rank of captain in 1803. In 1810 Brock appointed John Baskerville (sometimes spelled Baskervyle) Glegg as his ADC. Glegg fought in the Battle of Queenston Heights and was praised for his role by Brock's successor, Major General Roger Sheaffe. As Brock's surviving ADC, as well as close friend, he had the principal role in arranging Brock's funeral on 16 October. Subsequently, he was appointed acting ADC to Sheaffe.General Sir James Henry Craig was a British military officer and colonial administrator. He arrived in Canada to take up the appointments of governor-in-chief and commander of the forces in October 1807-1811. He strongly supported Brock in strengthening the military for the expected War of 1812.Waddle returned to England before being transported to Tasmania aboard the Indefatigable in June 1812 where he appears to have prospered, being granted town allotments in Launceston, marrying and becoming a wealthy merchant, even presenting himself as a free man, finally dying in 1852 some forty years after the man who presided over his court martial.

        PACATA HIBERNIA Or, a History of the Wars in Ireland, During the Reign of Queen Elizabeth Taken From the Original Chronicles

      Dublin: Hibernia - Press. Includes maps of Cork, Limerick, Youghal, The Siege of Dunboy, The Battle of Kinsale (large map), Map of Ireland etc. etc. Exceptionally rare in this wonderful and clean condition. Images on request. . 2 volumes (complete). Dublin, Hibernia - Press, 1810. 8°. Complete with all 18 maps/illustrations including the often missing map of Munster. One fold out etching with larger tear. Beautiful, original half leather. Includes maps of Cork, Limerick, Youghal, The Siege of Dunboy, The Battle of Kinsale (large map), Map of Ireland etc. etc. Exceptionally rare in this wonderful and clean condition. Images on request. The important historical narrative Pacata Hibernia, first published in 1633, was almost entirely composed by some one who stood very near to the person of Sir George Carew (afterwards lord Carew of Clopton and earl of Totnes), president of Munster during the three years (1600?-3) through which the book traces the history of that province, ending with the suppression of the insurrection there. Possibly, the author was lieutenant Thomas Stafford, who served under Carew, but whose name is mentioned only a single time in the entire narrative. The book, which, in the words of its editor, Standish O?'Grady, ?"deals with the stormy conclusion of a stormy century, the lurid sunset of one of the wildest epochs in Irish history,?" shows how complete, in the days of Mountjoy?'s viceroyalty, was the absence of anything like patriotism or public spirit from all but a very few of the Irish lords and that of all sense of honourable dealing from English officials.

        Of Natural Philosophy

      Aberdeen, [1810]. Contemporary half calf. Very Good. 8vo. Contemporary half calf with marble boards; spine gilt with label of black morocco gilt, edges speckled black, binding with fine repair to spine. Collation: [iv], 298pp. + 11 full-page illustrations and 1 fold-out (10 in colour, two in black and white). Neat cursive script, 24 lines per page. Forty four (44) colored illustrations present in text. Light browning, minor staining to foldout illustration. Paper watermarked C. Wilmott 1807. A fine rare and attractive manuscript of science course notes, probably following the natural philosophy course of Robert Eden Scott of King's College Aberdeen (1769-1811), and offering insight into the teaching of physics at the height of the Industrial Revolution. The compiler was one William Watt, who was a student at the college 1806-1810, and who neatly adds his name to one of his careful illustrations, at end. Those illustrations include one of the famous Boulton and Watt steam engine of his namesake James Watt (we have been unable to establish if they were related). It appears that William Watt may have used diagrams present in the 1805 edition of James Ferguson's 'Lectures on Select Subjects in Mechanics', and also from Olinthus Gregory's 'Treatise of Mechanics' (1806) as guide in preparing those included in this manuscript. The volume begins with an introduction to natural philosophy, which is followed by a section on the general rules of physics. The section following, although not titled, appears to be a study of movement, with individual chapters on the center of gravity, mechanics, the lever, pulley, axis in peritrochio, inclined plain, wedge, screw, machines in general, friction, wheeled carriages, the pendulum, and projectiles. The third part is on hydrostatics, the fourth on pneumatics, the fifth on electricity, the sixth on magnetism, and the seventh on optics. This part has chapters on light and refraction, lenses, dioptrics, particular lenses, vision, catoptrics, chromatics, telescopes (the astronomical telescope, Galilean telescope, terrestrial telescope, Newtonian reflector, and Gregorian telescope) and microscopes (the double microscope and solar microscope). Watt's full-page illustrations individually depict the telescopes and microscopes, and also the magic lantern, the camera obscura, and a meal mill, air pump, and fire engine, besides the Boulton and Watt engine.

        Plate XXXVIII fromThe Aurelian. A natural history of English moths and butterflies

      London 1810 - Hand-coloured engraving. Loss to right margin skilfully restored. A fascinating plate depicting several butterflies and moths and their pre-winged forms from 'a timeless classic' and the 'most celebrated of all the early books about butterflies and moths' (Salmon) in exceptionally bright and fresh condition. Lisney held that Harris was 'one of the most outstanding authors of entomological literature during the eighteenth century.' The present work is en example and displays a beautiful balance between accurate and innovative observation and the highest artistic merit. 'Harris began to take an active interest in entomology about the age of twelve and . was an accurate and original observer. He was, it is believed, the first to draw attention to the importance of wing neuration [the arrangement or distribution of nerves] in the classification of lepidoptera and upon this principle he arranged the species in his published works, illustrating them in colour with a high degree of accuracy. Harris certainly contributed much to the knowledge of the science and was one of the leading entomologists of his century. He was also a miniature painter of no mean accomplishment' (Lisney p.156). 'Moses Harris did much to encourage entomology at a time when the original dynamism of the age of Ray and the first Aurelian Society was waning. He was probably the prime mover in founding the second Aurelian Society . and in the unsurpassed plates of The Aurelian he left a timeless classic to future generations' (Salmon p.117). Hagen I, p. 341; Lisney 233; Nissen, ZBI 1835; Salmon The Aurelian Legacy (2000) pp.115-117.

        SKETCH OF THE TOWN & ENVIRONS OF PORT LOUIS EXPLANATORY OF THE OPERATIONS OF THE BRITISH ARMY UNDER THE COMMAND OF MAJR. GENL. THE HONBLE. JNE. ABERCROMBIE. Drawn by the Author. Decr. 1810 [manuscript title]

      [N.p., but possibly Port Louis. mid- 19th century].. Manuscript sheet map, 10 1/4 x 13 1/2 inches. On drafting linen. Handcolored. Old fold. Minor toning. Near fine. Manuscript map depicting troop deployments on the island of Mauritius in December of 1810, when the British finally overcame the French defenses and captured the island. The area from Grande Baie to Grande Riviere is shown, with the coast and terrain in between, documenting the route from the point of debarkation to the town of Port Louis. The legend gives different colored bars for troop positions on the subsequent days of the march, and includes figures for denoting passable and impassable routes. A similar manuscript map is described by Toussaint in his bibliography of Mauritius. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. A handsome map illustrating a key event in the island's history. TOUSSAINT F599 (ref).

        A Narrative of a Voyage to Surinam; of a Residence There During 1805-1807; and of The Author's Return to Europe by the Way of North America

      London, 1810. b/w engraved title, plates, map. 4to. x, (1), 232 pp. Written as a series of letters, beginning with a tour of Barbados, moving on to a discussion of the topography and physical appearance of Surinam, cultivation of various cash crops and methods of working the soil, discussion of the slave trade and its abolition, political and natural history of Surinam, with an appendix containing "additional notes and observations on the natural history of Surinam." Stedman?s work of a few years earlier is the primary source for information about Surinam in this era, and Von Sack refers to him occasionally. However, most of his observations are original. This country had already been colonized for 150 years by the Dutch, with plantations and slave labor producing coffee, sugar and cotton. Paramaribo was an important port for Yankee traders (including those from my home town of Gloucester). Although abolition of the slave trade was Von Sack?s underlying motive for this book, it conveys a great deal of original information about the country and its people. Bound in 19th century calf over marbled boards. Pages tanned, with occasional foxing, water stain in lower corner of first few pages. Front board nearly detached but present.

        The uncle's present, a new battledoor

      Philadelphia: Jacob Johnson 12mo (16.3 cm, 6.4"). [4] ff. (see below).. n.d. [ca. 1810] Dr. R explains the unusual way in which the pages of this publication were put together: There are "[f]our leaves, the first and last pasted down to the covers, the 2 inner ones pasted together making 4 pages in all." These four pages contain 24 letters of the alphabet, each with a "cry" illustrating it, 6 compartments to a page. Dr. R supposed the cries to be those of Newcastle or York, but Welch dissents and says they are London cries. In addition to the interior four pages, the covers are integral to the educational purpose of the publication: The front cover has a heading "Read, and be wise" and below is the alphabet in majuscules, then a center cut of sheep below a tree with children in the distance, with the numerals one to zero below the cut. Dr. R attributes this cut to A. Anderson. The rear cover has the same heading and below is the alphabet in minuscules, then a cut of horses and handlers and a building, with the alphabet in italic minuscules below, and then the numerals again. The flap with "Come, read and learn" on the outside and the title and publication data on the inside is present and integral. It is not uncommon for this fragile flap to have been lost. Publisher's olive printed paper–covered wrappers. Minor chipping to one top margin of rear cover; adhesion of olive paper from a different copy to the underside of the flap! A very few light stains. A very nice copy of this fragile item.

Die englischen Juristen scheiden die Gesamtmasse des Rechtsstoffes in Statute Law und Common Law, je nach dem gesetzlichen oder gewohnheitsrechtlichen Ursprung. Doch wird dieser Unterschied nicht durchweg festgehalten. Die älteren Satzungen der normannischen Könige zählen zu den Quellen des Common Law. Sie sind entweder Constitutiones, Assisae, vom König nach Beratung mit den Großen des Landes erlassen (Assisa ist Versammlung, Sitzung, ferner Urteil oder Satzung als das Ergebnis der Sitzung) oder sie heißen Chartae, Charters, einseitige königliche Verleihungen, Freibriefe zur Abhilfe von Beschwerden. Die Bezeichnung Assisae wird seit Heinrich III. durch den Ausdruck Provisiones verdrängt; seit Edward I. wird das Wort Statutum herrschend. Die offizielle Ausgabe der Statuten bringt unter der Rubrik Chartres die Freibriefe Heinrichs I. von 1100 bis zur Magna Charta. Die eigentlichen Statuten beginnen mit den Provisiones de Merton aus dem 20. Regierungsjahre Heinrichs III., 1236. Die Statuten im eigentlichen Sinne bis 1714 erschienen 1810 bis 1824 (1828) in einer offiziellen Ausgabe: The Statutes of Realm, 10 Bände in Folio mit Einschluß eines alphabetischen Index. Dazu ein chronologischer Index 1828. Die wichtigsten älteren Statuten haben durch Coke in seinen Institutes of the Laws of England, part II, einen berühmt gewordenen Kommentar erhalten. Die Unterscheidung von Gesetz und Statut ist fliessend, in der Regel versteht man unter Statut eine mit allen Ständen des Rechts vereinbarte Verordnung. Die Reihe der neuen Statuten kann man seit der Regierungszeit Heinrichs III. ansetzen. In dieser Zeit schrieb BRACTON: Sed absurdum non erit leges Anclicanas (licet non scriptas) leges appellare, cum legis vigorem habeat, quicquid de consilio et de consensu maginatum, et reipublicae communi sponsione, authoritate regis sive principis praecedente, juste fuerit definitum et approbatum. Die Redaktion der Statuten geschah in der Weise, daß die Anträge (petitions) der Gemeinen, welche bewilligt worden waren, in die Parlamentsakten (rolls of paliament) eingetragen wurden. Aus diesen wurden dann erst die eigentlichen Statuten, soweit diese Anordnungen einen bleibenden gesetzlichen Charakter hatten, von den Richtern ausgezogen und in die Rolle der Statuten (statutes rolls) eingefügt. Alle Statuten einer Parlamentssitzung wurden in ein einziges Statut zusammengeschrieben, dem REICHSABSCHIED sehr verwandt, in welchen dann die verschiedenen Bestimmungen als capitula erscheinen, welche in späterer Zeit unter Heinrich VIII. eigene Titel oder Überschriften erhielten. Die eigentliche Gesetzesform erhielten Statuten gegen Ende Heinrichs VI. oder anfangs der Regierung Eduards IV., wo sofort die petitions als bills stylisiert wurden. Die Mitwirkung der Richter bei der Abfassung der Statuten bestand wohl von Anfang an: Et habet Rex in potestate sua ut leges et conuetudines et assisas in ergno suo provisas et approbatas et juratas. Die Unterscheidung von Gesetz (statute) und Verordnung (ordinance) ist von Anfang an mehr nur eine formelle. Das Statut setzt in der Regel die Eintragung in die Statutenrolle durch die Richter voraus, an welche dieses durch den Staatsrat kam, welcher die eigentliche Publikation und Ausführung der Parlamentsbeschlüsse überwachte. Erfolgte keine Eintragung in die Statutenrolle, so sprach man häufig von einer Ordinance. In den STATUTES OF THE REALM sind nur solche Gesetze aufgenommen, welche in den älteren Drucken vorkommen und durch ihre Anerkennung in den Gerichtshöfen sanktioniert sind. Bei der Auswahl der Dokumente waren folgende Grundsätze maßgebend. 1. Die vorzüglichste Quelle sind die Statutenrollen. 2. Sind über ein Statut die Rollen nicht vorhanden, so kommen als nächste Quelle die Exemplifications und Transcripts in Betracht. 3. Die Original Acts, also die Bills, welche in das Parlament gebracht wurden, durch beide Häsuer gingen und die königliche Zustimmung erhielten. 4. Fehlen solche Urkunden, so sind die Parlamentsprotokolle maßgebend (rolls of parliament) 5. Die close, patent, fine und charter Rolls 6. Entries und Books of Records 7. Bücher und Manuskripte, welche den Charakter eines Record haben 8. Gedruckte Ausgaben Im Verhältnis zur SAMMLUNG ALLER REICHSABSCHIEDE, die zwar auch privatrechtliche Regelungen, insbesondere des Prozeßrechts enthalten, bilden die englische Gesetze (statutes) den Kern des englischen Privatrechts. Dies wird schon bei der MAGNA CHARTA von 1225 deutlich. Dort sind von den 38 Kapiteln viele von durchgreifender Wirkung für die Fortbildung des Privatrechts. Im second part of the Institutes von COKE sind Statuten im Hinblick auf das Privatrecht kommentiert. The collection of statutes known as the Statutes of the Realm was printed by command of George III. in pursuance of an adress of the House of Commons. It was prepared from original records and authentic manuscripts under the direction of the Record Commission. - These statutes cover the period from 20 Hen(ry) III. (1235) to the end of the reign of Queen Anne (1713). The first volume was published in 1810, the last 1828. The Statute Rolls, previous to the beginning of the reign of Henry VII., were sometimes in Latin and sometimes in French; subsequently they were uniformly in English. The earliest printed collection of statutes is an alphabetical abridgement supposed to have been published before 1481. The latest statute in such collection is of the year 1455 (33 Hen. VI.). The statutes passed in the only Parliament of Richard III. were printed in French soon after they were passed. This was the first instance of a sessional publication. The same course was observed in the reigns of Henry VII. and Henry VIII. From that time the statutes appear to have been regularly printed and published at the end of each session. At the time of the publication of the Statutes of the Realm, no complete collection had ever been printed containing all the matters which at different and by different editors had been published as statutes. The Statutes of the Realm contain all instruments which were included in the collections of statutes printed previous to the edition of Hawkins (1735), they having been for a long series of years accepted as statutes in courts of law. There are also inserted all matters of a public nature purporting to be statutes, although not previously printed in any general collection of statutes. The distinction between public acts and private acts is for the first time specifically stated on the inrollment in chancery in the 31st. year of Henry VIII. Private acts after that date are only noticed by the insertion of their title. The printed translation of the statutes previous to Henry VII. is taken from Cay's edition, 1751, supplemented by other authorities. A series of the Charters of the Liberties of England, from the reign of Henry I. (1101) to the reign of Edward I. (1301), is prefixed to the collection of statutes. The text of the revised edition of the statutes is based on the edition of the Statutes of Realm. The Interpretation Act, 1889, s.35, provides that in reference to Acts of Parliament in accordance with that section, such reference, in the case of statutes not included in any revised edition, printed by authority, and passed before the reign of George I., is to be read as referring to the edition prepared under the direction of the Record Commission.
