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

      Fort George, UC 1810 - 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

      [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.

      William Daniel, London 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.

        New South Wales. View of Sydney from the West Side of the Cove No.1 and View of Sydney from the West Side of the Cove No.2

      London: John Booth, 1810. Pair of aquatints in the original bird's eye maple frame. 340 x 980 mm. View of Sydney from the West Side of the Cove , two of John Eyre's superb views of Sydney Harbour.David Dickenson Mann was transported to Australia in 1799 for forgery, he was pardoned by 1802 and he stayed in Australia, on the fringes of government service until 1809 when he returned to England on the same ship as Colonel Johnston. In fact, David Dickenson Mann was one of the men who gave evidence at the famous court martial of 1811 of George Johnston.Mann took back to England four oil paintings by John Eyre which formed a panorama of the fledgling settlement. Mann exhibited these paintings in London in 1810, and organised xxx Clark to publish four aquatints based on them. This panorama of Sydney has the distinction of being the first to be shown in London, and the first to be published and Mann dedicated it to Admiral John Hunter.The convict artist John Eyre had arrived in New South Wales in 1801 and the first of his drawings which can be dated was done in 1804, soon after he received his conditional pardon. His best known work is this panorama; his Sydney is a neat and orderly town where the Aborigine roams with dignity. The focus is very much on the harbour, unsurprisingly as the maritime activity there was the dominating element in Sydney at the time. The four prints are View of Sydney from the East Side of the Cove numbers 1 and 2 and View of Sydney from the West Side of the Cove numbers 1 and 2.The two views offered here are the original uncoloured issue of 1810-1811 joined together as intended and in a very early nineteenth century frame.

        Wild Ducks

      Published at R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 101 Strand, London 1810 - Mezzotint. Printed on wove Whatman paper watermarked 1806. Lettered proof, state ii/iii. In excellent condition. Image size: 13 5/8 x 17 1/8 inches. A charming proof mezzotint by Charles Turner after James Barenger depicting wild ducks. James Barenger was born into an artistic family. His father exhibited paintings of insects at the Royal Academy between 1793 and 1799, and his mother was the sister of William Woollett, the celebrated engraver. Barenger was well known as an animal painter, exhibiting at the Royal Academy between 1807 and 1831. He was a keen sportsman and had a natural eye for detail, which brought an appealing realism to his studies. From 1815 onwards he exhibited the majority of his pictures at Mr. Tattersall's auction rooms in London, where they were well received by a diverse audience. Although Mr. Tattersall was his primary patron, Barenger earned a number of commissions from the Earl of Derby, The Duke of Grafton, and the Marquess of Londonderry. His work was widely engraved by some of the most fashionable engravers of the day and his attractive images remain highly desirable to sporting collectors. This strong image of two wild ducks is from a series of fourteen prints depicting English game birds. The series, which was mezzotinted by Charles Turner and published by Rudolph Ackermann, is entitled "British Feather Game" and includes images of some of the most important species of English wildfowl.
