        The Wife; or, A Model for Women. A tale. By Mrs. Edgeworth. FIRST EDITION. 3 vols.

      Printed for J.F. Hughes. 1810 3pp ads vol. I ('novels and romances just published by J.F. Hughes), ad. on verso of final leaf vol. III; text quite heavily marked in places, vol. II lacks following f.e.p. Contemp. half brown calf; rubbed. Ownership details of Mary Crofft, 1832. A good sound copy, in contemporary binding, of a very scarce work.Loeber E12. Although attributed to Maria Edgeworth by a number of institutions, Loeber doubts her authorship of The Wife, noting that Maria Edgeworth became vexed that inferior works were being passed off as hers. He gives examples of several works which were published in this fashion, apparently using the Edgeworth name to entice a wider readership. Block lists this title as being printed at the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman, although a search of OCLC and of Copac finds no copies of this title with the Newman imprint, and it is not listed in Blakey; the only extant copies have the J.F. Hughes imprint. Block gives 'Mrs Edgeworth' as the author of Adelaide; or, The Chateau de St. Pierre (4 vols, 1806), and The Ballad Singer; or, The memoirs of the Bristol family (4 vols, 1814). Loeber adds The Match Girl (3 vols, 1808), Fatherless Fanny (4 vols 1811), and Tales of Real Life, or, Scenes in Ireland (1817). He describes The Wife as 'a high society novel, which starts at a country house in Gloucestershire'. No copy listed on Copac; Leeds University has a digital version only. OCLC gives one print copy, in the university of Leipzig. The BL lists only an 1813 French translation, giving Maria Edgeworth as the original author: Le Modèle des Femmes. Roman traduit de l'anglais par Mme. Élisabeth de *** [Bon].

        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. Unbound. Very good. 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.

        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. 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Thomas and William Daniell, on thick paper, mounted on guards, each with accompanying text, bound horizontally as usual. 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. 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).

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).

Im Manuskript folgen dann noch 25 wöchentliche Aufzeichnungen, endend mit dem 21. Oktober. - Die insgesamt zwölf voll beschriebenen Blätter sind Teil des Tagebuches, das Wieck in den Jahren 1810-1815 geführt hat. Die vorliegenden Aufzeichnungen betreffen zwar primär den Unterricht eines einzelnen Schülers, doch sind dies hier mehr grundlegende Äußerungen zum Musikunterricht schlechthin, als Bekenntnis niedergeschrieben. "[.] dieser kleine Aufsatz, sage ich, mag zum Beweiß der Liebe für mein ehrenvolles Geschäft [.] und für die Wahrheit seÿn; der ich nie etwas, aufzuopfern gewohnt bin; - und so wünsche ich nur noch, daß dieß alles eben so unbefangen aufgenommen werden möge, als es Schmeichelei u. Heuchelei liebt und selbst andere verkennt; dieß wird mich hinlänglich belohnen. Ich schließe mit den Worten Pauli an alle diejenigen, welche in den jetzigen schwindeligen und überspannten Zeitalter den schönen u festen Vorsatz haben, ihre Kinder gut zu erziehen - mit den Worten schließe ich: 'prüfet und behaltet das Beste. - w.'". - Leicht angestaubt und gebräunt und mit kleinen Randläsuren.

        REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CLAIMS OF THE MEMORIAL OF PETER [PIERRE] LANDAIS; FEBRUARY 5, 1810. READ, AND REFERRED TO A COMMITTE OF THE WHOLE HOUSE ON FRIDAY NEXT

      A.&G. Way, Printers, City of Washington 1810 - The first USS Alliance of the United States Navy was a 36-gun sailing frigate of the American Revolutionary War. Her first commanding officer was Capt. Pierre [Peter] Landais, a former officer of the French Navy who had come to the New World hoping to become a naval counterpart of Lafayette. The Alliance after reaching France was ordered by Benjamin Franklin to join the French squadron commanded by Captain John Paul Jones on the Bonhomme Richard instead of quickly returning to America with much needed military supplies. The squadron then clockwise circumnavigated around Britain capturing three British ships. Landais sent the captured ships to Bergen, Norway, where the Danish government quickly returned the ships to the British consul depriving the captors of any reward for the capture of the ships. This Committee of Claims report was to determine whether the U.S. or France was liable to make good on the loss of any profit on the loss of the three ships. House Report No. 32, pages 317 through 331, 15 pages. Recently bound in half green leather over mabled boards. A fine copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

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.
