        PLEA FROM A HERO OF THE NORTHWEST INDIAN WARS TO RECEIVE HIS ARMY PENSION; Folded-letter from Captain Cornelius R. Sedam to the former Secretary of War, James McHenry

      Cincinnati 1810 - This stampless one-page folded letter measures 15.5" x 12.5". It was sent from Sedam's farm near Bold Face Creek about three miles west of Cincinnati and is dated November 11, 1813. The cover is addressed to McHenry at Baltimore, Maryland. It has a manuscript Cincinnati postmark dated 19 Nov 1811. A manuscript "25" appears in the upper right corner indicating the cost to send a letter a distance of 500 or more miles. The letter is in nice shape with some light soiling. In this letter, Sedam, asks for McHenry's assistance in obtaining a retirement emolument which he had been promised when the army was downsized in late 1790s after the Northwest Territory had been secured. "I . . . write you . . . to save me from Ruin. . . . if you'll please to Recollect when you was Secretary of War you Granted me permission to go to the West Indies and hold my Commission [and] that their would be a Reduction of the Army and would be some Emollements for the Officers that would Retire. Accordingly, I did when . . . the Reduction Took Place. [After] I left Service and Captain Shamburg remained in my Sted . . . the Accountant Mr. Simmons, he informed me that their was not monies Enough apropriated for all the retired Officers. . . . Sir there is a Line commenced against me for 360 Doll's . . . its now in your Power to do me Justice by makeing a Statement of what you remember of the business. . . .". Sedam was a 21-year military veteran and a member of the Society of the Cincinnati. He enlisted in the New Jersey Militia in 1775 and served throughout the Revolution. Following the war, Sadam received a Regular Army commission as an Ensign under General Josiah Harmar and was assigned first to Fort Harmar, where he served with future President William Henry Harrison, and later to Fort Washington (Cincinnati) which he helped build. Between 1785 and 1795, Sedam fought in the Northwest Indian War. He was one of the few officers to survive St. Claire's massacre at the Wabash and was promoted to Captain in part because of his valorous conduct during the battle. He later fought in General Anthony Wayne's decisive victory at the Battle of Fallen Timbers which secured the Northwest Territory from Indian attacks and forced the British to abandon their forts in the United States. The date of Sedam's "retirement" from the Army is hazy, and it is unclear whether or not he actually travelled to the West Indies. However, it is certain that by 1800, Sedam had established a large farm just west of young city of Cincinnati. Today, Sedamsville, the site of the Sedam homestead, is best known as the childhood home of baseball legend Pete Rose. A unique letter from with a rare early manuscript Cincinnati postmark from a noteworthy, but now all-but-forgotten, soldier who was instrumental in pacifying the Northwest Territory.

        Für den Neujahrstanz kostümierter Affe (Saru no shogatsu / Monkey Costumed for a New Year's Dance). Original-Farbholzschnitt.

      Japan, um 1810.. 21,5 x 17,8 cm. Im unteren rechten Eck im Druckstock von Shinsai signiert. Die Typographie etwas flau im Druck, an den beiden oberen Ecken auf Trägerkarton montiert, im äußersten Rand an wenigen Stellen schwach gebräunt. Kontrastreicher und farbintensiver Abdruck in sehr gutem Zustand. Der hier gezeigte Affe trägt einen schwarzen Eboshi-Hut und einen Glücksmantel, der mit dem Zeichen des Glücks (Fuku) gekennzeichnet ist. Auf seiner Schulter ein Gohei (für Shinto-Rituale). Das Kostüm trägt der Affe für das über tausendjährige Ritual des Sarumawashi, ein zum Neujahrsfest aufgeführter Affentanz, der dazu dienen sollte, böse Geister von den Stallungen der Samurai fernzuhalten. Im Gegensatz zu dem von uns recherierten Holzschnitt im Rhode Island School of Design Museum (RISD) aufgeführtem Exemplar weicht unser Blatt durch das Fehlen der roten Sake-Tasse im oberen rechten Eck, das unterschiedliche abgedruckte Gedicht sowie die geringfügig anders gestaltete Musterung des Kostüms ab. Ein weiterer von uns konsultierter Druck zeigt zwar ebenfalls die Sake-Tasse (in einer etwas anderen Position als jene des Exemplares des RISD-Museums), jedoch ebenfalls in Kombination mit dem Gedicht unseres Exemplares. - Der Künstler Shinsai war Schüler des Hokusai, über seine Biographie ist allerdings kaum mehr bekannt als das von ihm hinterlassene künstlerisches Oeuvre.

        A Picturesque Voyage to India; by the way of China.

      London: for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme; and William Daniell, 1810 - Landscape folio (353 x 248 mm). Recent green half calf, decorative gilt spine, dark red label. marbled sides, blue-green speckled edges. A number of stubs reinforced with archival tape, occasional foxing and light soiling in blank margins, one leaf of letterpress with tape repair to closed-tear. A very good, clean copy. 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Thomas and William Daniell, on thick paper, mounted on guards, each with accompanying text, bound horizontally as usual. First edition, text and plates watermarked 1808. Originally issued in ten parts, this is one of the most famous books on the scenery of China and India to come out of the Golden Age of British aquatint. In 1784, Thomas Daniell (1749–1840) "received permission from the East India Company to travel as 'engraver' to India with his nephew William Daniell (1769–1837) as his assistant/apprentice. They left England on 7 April 1785 and arrived in Calcutta via Canton early in 1786" (ODNB). The result was this splendidly illustrated account, that includes views of Madeira, Java, Macao, Canton, the Cape of Good hope, Malaysia, Calcutta, and the Bay of Bengal; in addition, there are twenty two plates dedicated to Chinese subjects. "The aquatints of India by Thomas and William Daniell have been continuously popular ever since their publication between 1795 and 1810 A Picturesque Voyage consisted of 50 aquatints depicting the places visited by the artists on their various journeys to and from China and to India. Five views show their approach to Calcutta and the city itself. The publication of these aquatints had been a mammoth task. The two artists prepared almost all the plates themselves. [William came to be regarded as] one of the greatest aquatinters of the 19th-century The Daniells' Indian aquatints soon made an impact on the British public and on British culture at a number of different levels" (Archer). Abbey, Travel, 516; Archer, Early Views of India, pp. 223-5; Cordier, Sinica, 2107; Mendelssohn, South African Bibliography, p. 413 ("beautifully coloured engravings"); Tooley 173.

        Estado general que de orden del Excmo. Cabildo de esta capital forma su contaduria para demostrar los caudales que por lo correspondiente al nuevo impuesto de ciudad .

      Buenos Aires, En la Real Imprenta de Ninos Expositos, 12 Feb 1810. - Folio (31.1 x 43 cm.), unbound. Caption title. Vertical fold at center. In very good to fine condition. (1 l.), printed on recto only. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. A general statement of the expenses and income of the city of Buenos Aires from 12 August 1806, the day of the British surrender, to 31 December 1809; it is dated 10 February 1810, with a decreto authorizing publication dated two days later. Most of the expenses were for military defense; the income was from two sources, a new tax and donations from the other provinces of the Viceroyalty. The economic plight of Buenos Aires furnished one of the most important impulses for the independence movement. The liberal creoles, led by Mariano Moreno, pressed for free trade with Britian, while the old Spanish merchants demanded taxes in accordance with the Junta of Seville. Caught between these two forces, the new Viceroy, Baltasar Cisneros, opened trade in November 1809 - only to reverse his decision the following month. This Estado represents a temporary victory for the old Spanish faction, but Mariano's widely read liberal views and the fall of the Seville Junta determined the economic emancipation of Buenos Aires before its political emancipation began. *** Medina 751. Furlong 1791: notes that, according to the records of the press, the Estado was printed 26 February in accordance with the Viceroy's order of 23 February. This copy is possibly a variant, since both Furlong and Medina record the title with "la contaduria" rather than "su contaduria." Not located in CCPBE. Not located in Rebiun. Not located in Copac.

Christoph Wilhelm "Hufeland (hat) bereits bei der Gründung der (Humboldt) Universität (Oktober) 1810 darauf gedrungen, auch eine Poliklinik zu errichten, um den Studenten Gelegenheit zu geben, ihre theoretischen Kenntnisse in die Praxis umzusetzen. Als Vorbild für diese Klinik diente ihm diejenige, die er in Jena errichtet hatte, in der er sich täglich mit seinen Studenten traf. Hufeland blieb Direktor dieser Klinik bis zum Jahre 1833, in dem er seinem Assistenten Osann die Verantwortung übertrug. Nach dessen Tod im Jahre 1842 übernahm Romberg die Leitung. Diesem gelang es 1850 für diese Klinik neue und größere Gebäude zu erwerben, die in unmittelbarer Nähe der Chirurgischen Klinik in der Ziegelstraße lagen". - Rolf Winau, Medizin in Berlin, pp.146ff.

        HARU SAME NO NIKKI: THE [EROTIC] JOURNAL OF A SPRING RAIN.

      - [Japan n.d. ca. 1810].Stitched thick color woodblock printed and decorated covers, 3 volume set, [14+10+8] double-folded leaves, 30 color pages, 25 erotic illustrations, complete, a very solid copy. R A R E FIRST EDITION *** *** *** . . . A VERY RARE AND UNIQUE STORY OF LUST & RAPE . . . * THE ARTIST: SHUNTEI [1770-1820]: Japanese "HARUBON" or "SHUNPON" [erotic woodblock printed and illustrated books] were never signed by the artist using his own name, or a 'studio' name where he could be recognized. By and large these erotic works were unsigned. By stylistic analysis, the artist 'style' or 'school' can in many cases be easily identified. It is our educated opinion this work was executed by Shuntei. Complete in 3 volumes. . *** THE STORY: . Volume 1: Begins with an erotic introduction, discussing the sensual gentle spring rain season. "Spring" or :"Shun" is part of the name of "Spring" books ["i.e. Shunpon"] in that "Spring" is the traditional Japanese season of awakening of the sexual spirit. . The first double page plate shows Geishas getting ready for the arrival of guests, their placing of the food, three Geisha who play musical instruments and hold fans. . Page 2 shows a young Samurai neglecting his "fire watch" while making love along the river with his prostitute and lover, on a double pages. . Page 3 shows another couple with the woman on top, grasping the young man's highly enlarged erected penis, while she looks at an opened erotic book, mimicking the exact position found in the book. . The next two plates show couples engaged in love making, the last illustration is of the vulva and exposed genitals. . Vol. 2 is illustrated with 4 double-pages of couples making love. . One shows the woman looking at a 3 volume erotic book set, another shows a man licking his fingers in preparation to lubricate the vulva. The last plate shows a large close-up of the penis and vagina. . Vol. 3 shows two men coming upon a couple making love in the night. They assault the man with an erect penis and happily rape the woman. Another couple are making love. . The last illustration in each volume, shows close-ups of the penis and vagina, deep penetration of the vulva. . *** An exceptionally fascinating erotic set, complete. CONDITION: This work has very good impressions & registry. . *** See images posted to our website. . *** REFERENCES: Cited and illustrated in: K. Shibui: UKIYO-E NAISHI, page 68 with 2 illustrations, item #106. * L. Roberts: DICTIONARY OF JAPANESE ARTISTS cites Shuntei [1770-1820] on p.158. . ***

        View of Taj Mahal, Agra.

      ca 1810 - Watercolour with pen and ink on wove paper, watermarked Russell & Co. 1810, 50.5 x 72.5 cm The Taj Mahal was commissioned by Shah Jahan (reigned 1628-1658) in 1632 as a mausoleum for his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. This unusually large composition presents an uninterrupted view from the north, across the Yamuna river in the walled city of Agra, in Uttar Pradesh. It beautifully illustrates the majesty of the finished complex. The central mausoleum, with its large onion dome and attendant minarets, in built of shining white marble, delicately ornamented with calligraphy, geometrical and scrolling foliage designs, set off by the adjoining lesser structures and perimeter wall in red sandstone. The main project was completed around 1643, though additional works continued for many more years, executed by an enormous team of engineers, masons and workers, under the chief architect, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri. This watercolour is a magnificent example of Company School work, the output of Indian artists tailored for a predominantly European market, with its distinctive blend of Mughal style, typified in countless miniatures on ivory and in book illumination, with Western concepts of space and perspective. Its name derives from the British East India Company, whose staff fostered its development as a means to satisfy their sense of wonder at the people, scenery and natural history of India. Commencing with the first influx of British officers and administrators in the 18th century, it continued well into the 19th century, until supplanted by the advent of photography.

In this edition, the images are printed in large format to enhance the exotic lushness of the native flora, in the alternate issue of the third edition, the plates are reduced to quarto format and bound in to the text. The four aquatint views are after drawings by William Bell of Fort Marlborough, Sumatra, and are engraved by Joseph Stadler, chiefly known for his impressive work in Thornton's The Temple of Flora (1798 - 1807). The oversized atlas volume is frequently separated from the text, the catalogue for the Hill collection noting that in their copy 'the much-prized companion atlas is lacking here, as is usual'.

Jones, Barrington occupies a unique position in the history of early Australia, being the most famous of all the transported convicts, with a near heroic status in England. He travelled with the Third Fleet in 1791 and, given the greed of publishers, chapbooks were issued almost immediately in his name. Although none of the books were written by Barrington himself, ?the 1795 Voyage and the 1800 Sequel, in their numerous guises, do provide some details of events in New South Wales not elsewhere available?

There were also catalogs of British and American publications, some miscellaneous articles, and a little poetry.

        Sketches of the country, character, and costume, in Portugal and Spain, made during the Campaign, and on the route of the British army, in 1808 and 1809.

      London Printed for John Booth by William Savage 1810 - Large paper copy (48 x 33.5 cm), two parts in one volume, folio, stipple engraved frontispiece, 53 hand-coloured aquatint plates of costumes and landscapes, including 13 plates of military costume, plates engraved by Clark, contemporary diced russia, covers ruled in gilt with geometric panel in gilt and blind, spine in six compartments, gilt lettered direct in second, broad gilt dividers ruled in gilt, all edges gilt, neat restoration to spine. A handsome large paper copy on fine thick paper of one of the best colour plate books on Spain. These special large paper copies were produced in small numbers, probably less than 100 copies, and were usually published atr around double the price of a standard copy. Bradford had served on Wellington's staff during the Peninsular Campaign and the book is Bradford's record of his time there. The British public were avid for information on Spain during and after the Campaign and this resulted in several attractive colour plate books. Many of these were primarily scenes of battles but the present work has a larger scope. Bibliographically complex, with several issues being published as demand increased, this copy conforms to Abbey's issue 2B with both title-pages dated 1810. Abbey Travel 135; Colas 421; Tooley 107.

        A picturesque voyage to India by the way of China.

      London: Longmans 1810 - First edition. Folio, 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates on thick paper with ruled and grey wash borders, contemporary red straight-grained morocco gilt, all edges gilt, spine worn, joints repaired, occasional light spotting, plates generally clean and fresh, a very good example. A well bound copy of the first edition of this illustrated voyage, which shows well the Daniells' love of river scenes "not just bare statements of fact but pleasant, well-balanced compositions" (Sutton). The pictures of Calcutta are particularlty noteworthy; "Calcutta from the Garden Reach" is one of the most famous of the Daniell pictures. It is one of the rare instances in which reference was made at a later date to a drawing by another artist, as certain of the buildings shown were not in existence during the Daniells' time in India. The penultimate plate shows the "Old Fort Gaut" containing the notorious "Black Hole of Calcutta". Other plates show Malaya, Java, Straits of Malacca, approximately 22 plates of China, and the remaining five of India, Bay of Bengal and two on the River Hoogly.

        Ueber die Verkrümmungen des menschlichen Körpers und eine rationelle und sichere Heilart derselben.

      Leipzig, Mitzky & Comp., 1810, 8, 4, XIV, 170 pp., mit 6 ganzseitigen Kupfertafeln, Halblederienband d.Zt. obere Ecke des Titel ergänzt Rücken erneuert feines und frisches Exemplar. Die erste fundierte orthopädische Monographie in DeutschlandErste Ausgabe, sehr selten. Ein Markstein der modernen Orthopädie! "Das erste wissenschaftliche orthopädische Lehrbuch der Welt" nennt J. Löffler das vorliegende Werk (In: Festschr. 25-Jahr-Feier Orthopäd. Klinik d. Univ. Leipzig). Johann Christian Gottfried Jörg (1779-1856) Professor der Medizin in Leipzig, gibt eine eingehende Beschreibung der Wirbelsäulenverbiegungen und trennt dabei Caries der Wirbel von den Skoliosen. Interessant sind seine frühen Erkenntnisse zum Schiefhals, zur spinalen Kinderlähmung, dem Klumpfuß, sowie das Kapitel "Von der Prognose u. Chur d. Verkrümmungen d. menschl. Körpers überhaupt". Die eindruckvollen Abbildungen körperlicher Deformitäten und der Geräte zu ihrer Behebung sind von J.F. Schröter gestochen. Bezeichnend ist der Apell Jörgs an die Ärzte, sie müßten sich der mit orthopädischen Leiden Behafteten annehmen und sie nicht den Händen der Scharfrichter, Hirten u. dergleichen überlassen. Das Jörg'sche Werk basiert auf einer dynamischen Krankheitsauffassung orthopädischer Leiden und beschrieb die Pathogenese und die konservative Therapie wesentlicher orthopädischer Erkrankungen, wie zum Beispiel des Schiefhalses, der Skoliose und des Klumpfußes. Da bei den noch formbaren Kindern eine Heilung durch konsequente und und langdauernde Therapie zu erwarten war, empfahl er die stationäre Behandlung und eine spätere konsequente Führung des Patienten in der ambulanten Phase.

        Rare Apple and Guava.

      Calcutta? 19th Century - A pair of watercolours on paper (watermarked 1810) depicting a guava and a "rare apple". Each image showing fruit on a branch and cross-section of fruit. Framed and glazed, overall size: 53 by 60 cm. A highly accomplished pair of botanical watercolours. Company painting' is a broad term for a variety of hybrid styles that developed as a result of European (especially British) influence on Indian artists from the early 18th to the 19th centuries. It evolved as a way of providing paintings that would appeal to European patrons who found the purely indigenous styles not to their taste. As many of these patrons worked for the various East India companies, the painting style came to be associated with the name, although it was in fact also used for paintings produced for local rulers and other Indian patrons. The subject matter of company paintings made for western patrons was often documentary rather than imaginative, and as a consequence, the Indian artists were required to adopt a more naturalistic approach to painting than had traditionally been usual. Calcutta was among the important early production centres, as the site of one of the oldest British trade houses. The city's most enthusiastic patrons were Lord Impey, chief justice of the High Court from 1777 to 1783, and the Marquess Wellesley, who served as governor-general from 1798 to 1805. Both had collected large menageries and hired artists to paint each of the birds and animals in them. A Company-established botanical garden in Calcutta then undertook a similar project for the samples of plant life it had collected. The present watercolours are possibly two of these.

        Versailles, Paris, and St Denis; or a series of views from drawings made on the spot . illustrative of the capital of France and the surrounding places. With an historical and descriptive account.

      London for W. Miller 1810 - First edition. folio (48.5 x 35 cm. approx.), [iv], 86 pp, including title page and list of plates. Forty fine hand-coloured aquatint plates, by Hill after Nattes (except for plate 29, by Cartwright after Nattes), plates on Whatman paper watermarked 1808, fine modern period style black straight-grained morocco richly gilt, first four leaves of text with neat restoration to fore-edge, 2 leaves with short tears repaired, an excellent example. An outstanding series of views of Versailles and Paris by one of the foremost drawing masters of his day. The work is characterized by many unusual subjects and interesting perspectives, and provides a fine record of Paris in the aftermath of the Revolution. It was produced in quite a small edition and has always been scarce and sought after. The Versailles plates form a beautiful set, not only of the park of Versailles, the Trianon, the famous machine at Marly, which pumped water for the fountains of Versailles, but also for the environs including St. Cloud. Many of the Parisian views show the influence of Piranesi in the choice of angles and also Nattes was taken with the bridges; 8 of the views are of bridges and a further 7 are scenes drawn from beneath them. John Claude Nattes (1765?-1839) was a topographical draughtsman and watercolour painter who travelled widely in England and France and a founder member of the Society of Painters in Watercolours. He trained as a pupil of Hugh Primrose Deane, the Irish landscape-painter. He evidently had a great affection for France in general and Paris in particular as at the end of 1822 he left England and almost certainly settled in France, where a number of collections of his drawings are located; his last known address was in St Germain. The main collections of his work are in the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Guildhall Library, London; the print room at Windsor Castle; the Bodleian Library, Oxford; and the National Library of Scotland. "Some of the finest aquatint plates in existence are those done from the drawings of John Claude Nattes . The Views of Versailles, Paris, St Denis are well known as fine and attractive" (Prideaux, p. 274). Published during the time of the Napoleonic War, very few English people would have travelled in France at this time. This probably accounts for the small edition and scarcity of the work.

        The New Practical Navigator; being a Complete Epitome of Navigation: to which are added, all the Tables Requisite for determining the latitude and longitude at sea: containing the different kinds of sailing, and necessary corrections for lee-way, variation, &c. exemplified in a Journal at Sea etc.

      F. and C. Rivington, G. Wilkie and J. Robinson etc, London., 1810. Eighteenth edition, enlarged and carefully improved, by Joseph Dessiou. Octavo. pp xvi, 336 + tables. 8 engraved plates including a frontispiece portrait, maps, charts, Hadley's quadrant and sextant, "a first rate ship of war"; at the rear are two folding planispheres of the stars. Quarter leather with marbled boards. The endpapers and blanks are densely filled with notes of a navigational nature, in Swedish, and in an exquisitely fine hand, such that they add to, rather than detract from, the book's condition. There are a few further notes in the text. The majority of them date from 1867. The tables at the rear are unnumbered but an approximate guess would put them in the region of 200 pages - they concern difference of latitude and departure, logarithms, artificial sines, tangents, and secants, finding the latitude by two altitudes of the sun, high water, &c. One page has been extensively repaired but is complete. Very good.
