        Autograph Letter, signed ("F S Key") to Ignatius Davis "near Frederick Town," on legal business

      Georgetown, 5 december, 1810 - This early letter to Davis from the author of our National Anthem reads: "I have had a great many talks with Judge Garett about your judgment. We had consented to leave the balle (?) to be settled by E.B. Caldwell, Esq and at last month's Court I took Henry O'Neale's deposition which is very strong in your favor. He now says he is prepared to let Mr. Caldwell determine it, but has sent me the annexed which he wishes to sign & return. - He says you ought to return my money which he can prove he has overpaid. You will therefore determine whether you will assent to this & inform me. Mr. Garett, if it was even possible to prove he had overpaid the debt, would be still bound to pay the costs of the judgt -" "After graduating from St. John's College in Annapolis, [Key] studied law and in 1801 opened his law practice in Fredericktown with Roger B. Taney, who married his sister and would later serve as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1802 Key married Mary Tayloe Lloyd; they had eleven children. Soon after his marriage, he moved to Georgetown, D.C., and began legal practice there in association with his uncle Philip Barton Key" (ANB). Over the last 30 years, only one other Francis Scott Key letter of an earlier date has appeared at auction 4to. 1 p. Old folds, slight wrinkling and soiling, on closed tear repaired

      Chez Fr. Buisson, 1810 - 1829, a Paris, - 8 voll. di testo in-8° (210x135mm) e un vol. di atlante in-folio (375x280mm). I voll. di testo sono legati in m. pelle marrone coeva con titolo, filetti e tomaison in oro e fregi in oro e a secco ai dorsi. Tabelle n.t. Il vol. di atlante è in cartonatura coeva bicolore. L'atlante consta di 24 cartografie finemente incise su rame da Tardieu da invenzione di Giraldon e con i confini territoriali delle nazioni in bella coloritura coeva di Diot. In barbe, in ottimo stato conservativo, con solo alcune sparse quanto lievi fioriture e bruniture.

Come scrive Robert Ferras nell'opera Les géographies universelles et le monde de leur temps (Paris, 1989), Malte-Brun "proposait une géographie de la découverte et de la mise en place d'une discipline balbutiante malgré ses réalisations, en particulier en cartographie; il a produit une information sur le Monde, autorisée par sa formation à l'étranger, son savoir encyclopédique, sa position au poste clé de la Société Géographique de Paris, sa connaissance des langues étrangères".

        Un Bon Tiens Vaut Mieux Que Deux tu Auras [A Bird in Hand is Worth Two in the Bush]

      Paris 1810 - A glowing impression of this charming stipple engraving, which is printed in the "a la poupée" method. This unusual print by Augrand after Mallet exemplifies a certain vogue for quasi erotic, decorative prints that swept through France during the Napoleonic era. Mallet had a reputation for luxurious mixes of beautiful women and cupids. Here in a scene that echoes Medieval and Renaissance Annunciation scenes, a happy young woman in the neo-Classical garb that became fashionable at this time embraces one cherub while another floats away, and the title invites her to be happy with the one she has. This plate is a lovely example of early colour printing, which was developed as a means of reproducing the effects of painting in oils. It exemplifies the single-plate colour-printing technique developed in England and quickly adopted by French engravers. The effect is achieved by inking a single plate with several different colours by using a rag stump, a process known as à la poupée . As this lovely print demonstrates, the outcome achieved by this laborious method of inking has a wonderful painterly effect and creates a delicacy of image, appropriate to its light-hearted message. Colour-printed stipple. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of some slight paper discolouration. Water stain lower left corner. Trimmed within plate mark on the side and top margins. Image size: 10 3/8 x 13 1/8 inches.

        CORNELIA AND ALCESTIS: TWO OPERAS

      Printed for T. Payne, London 1810 - Early 19th Century Libretti Based on Greek Tragedies,The Artful Painted Scene by the Dover Painter, ca. 1930. 194 x 124 mm (7 5/8 x 4 7/8"). 2 p.l., lxxxvii, [i], 188 pp. FIRST EDITION. Harmless contemporary purple straight-grain morocco, covers with gilt fillet border, raised bands flanked by plain gilt rules, gilt titling, all edges gilt. WITH AN EXCELLENT LATER FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE ACROPOLIS. Joints somewhat rubbed and flaked, boards a little stained and rather faded, rear board with two small abraded patches, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and fresh internally, in a solid, inoffensive binding, and with a vividly colored painting in fine condition. These two librettos are based on Euripides' tragedies "Medea" and "Alcestis." "Cornelia" transports the story of Medea's revenge on her faithless husband to Roman Britain, while Alcestis' story of self-sacrifice and redemption retains its original setting and cast of characters. The fore-edge painting salutes the classical origins of the operas with a striking depiction of the Acropolis, rising majestically on its hill, surrounded by open countryside with blue mountains in the distance. The foreground is populated by two tourists, sitting on a rock admiring the view, and four brightly dressed Greek peasants. Our view shows a sophisticated sense of design as well as a delicacy of painterly strokes, and the whole scene looks very convincing. The intricate gradations in the shading, seen especially in the fields and sky, are remarkable, and the highly skilled use of shadows establishes a strong sense of three-dimensionality. There is a great deal to see in terms of activity, landscape, and architecture, and all of it is painted in careful, convincing detail. It is easy to recognize the work of the so-called "Dover Painter," as it shows his distinctive style of applying small dabs of paint; this method is especially effective in producing convincing texture for skies, trees, shrubs, and grass. "Dover Painter" is the name given by Jeff Weber to the person who painted in the 1920s and '30s, probably for the famous London bookseller Marks & Company. British writer James Mason (1778/9-1827) wrote political pamphlets advocating parliamentary reform and Catholic emancipation, as well as several plays, an epistolary novel, and translations from the classics.

        Marie Louise Archid. d' Autriche

      A Paris chez Bance ame M. d'Estampes rue St. Denis and a' Milan chez Joseph M. et Frere Ubiemi M. d' Estampes rue des Servi n. 506 Editeurs, 1810. A captivating portrait of Marie Louise of Austria, Napoleon's second wife. This is a magnificent print of Marie Louise of Austria executed in 1810, the year of her marriage to Emperor Napoleon. In 1809 when Josephine, Napoleon's first wife, failed to give him a son, the Emperor divorced her. He based this action on the spurious grounds that a parish priest had not been present at their marriage, but it was well known that this decision resulted from his desire for a male heir. Two months later he married Marie Louise, the daughter of Francis II, Emperor of Austria, and great-niece of Marie Antoinette. The marriage did nothing to end the enmity between France and Austria, but in 1811 Marie gave birth to a son, Francois Charles, who was made king of Rome. This captivating print depicts Marie at one of the most pivotal moments of her life. She is portrayed as being both innocent and magisterial, fashionable as well as reserved which results in a hauntingly beautiful portrait of this young bride. Rados's print recalls the portrait of Marie, executed in the same year, by Jean Godfrey. Both works are monumental in size and depict the young princess in a park setting. The detailing of Marie's dress and the level of intricate detail in Rados's image, is nothing short of magnificent, and his soft engraving technique gives this print a delicacy, which is immensely appealing. From the collection of William J. Latta of Philadelphia, a 19th century collector of Napoleonic material. Regency to Empire: French Printmaking 1715-1814 no. 124; Le Blanc, Manuel de L'Amateur D'Estampes III, p. 269, no. 12; Lugt, Les Marques de Collections , No. 2825. Stipple with engraving.

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

      Leipzig: Mitzky und Compagnie, 1810. - xiv, 170 pp; 6 plates. Recent marbled boards. Upper blank corner of title page renewed. Foxed (text is quite foxed; plates are only slightly foxed). Almost entirely unopened. Untrimmed. First Edition. Plate I illustrates deformities of the spine, hand, leg, and foot. Plates II-VI illustrate deformities and Jörg's mechanical apparatus to treat them. "The first medical orthopaedist in Germany, Johann Christian Gottfried Jörg (1779-1865) worked here [Leipzig], and in 1810--18 years before the publication of Delpech's De l'orthomorphie--wrote what is regarded as the first scientific textbook of orthopaedics in the world: Über die Verkrummungen des menschlichen Körpers und eine rationelle und sichere Heilart derselben (On the distortions of the human body and a rational and certain method of curing the same). And yet Jörg, like Deventer in Holland, was an obstetrician, a professor of obstetrics, and to some extent a paediatrician. He wrote an excellent account of the morbid anatomy and treatment of club-foot [Über Klumpfüsse und eine leichte und zweckmässige Heilart derselben, 1806], incriminating the tibial muscles, especially the posterior, as the cause of inveterate adduction. He advocated the mechanical management of deformities with appliances and corsets. He says nothing of the operative treatment of torticollis, except that it might have been suitable for a cruder age, but that every case could be cured by his own ingenious device in which a head-band was connected to a breastplate by a ratchet [illustrated in his plate 2]. Jörg succeeded in distinguishing between the curvatures of scoliosis and spinal tuberculosis, but was uncertain about the cause of the gibbus in the latter; the proximate cause lay mostly in the bones, less often in the muscles, and rickets, foul air and malnutrition played a part. He laboured to get victims of infantile paralysis on their feet again. He encouraged the chiropodists. He seems to have had an intuition about the cause of rickets, preferring to admit patients to his own home for supervision, so that it virtually became an orthopaedic clinic, since, left to their parents, 'their diet is seldom adhered to as is necessary if rickets is to be avoided thereby.' He made a poignant appeal which indicates how critical for the advance of orthopaedics was a change in medical attitudes at the start of the 19th century: 'I must risk an entreaty, which is that in future the better heads among the doctors should not let themselves be so intimidated by the diseases discussed here . . . and rescue these afflictions from the executioners, pastors and the like; for, sad to say not only the common man but also often the educated turn to these people because they were occasionally lucky here and there, and because the patients with these disorders were often rejected outright by the better doctors.' This was why the surgeons in Würzburg were so tolerant of Heine and why lay therapists were so successful in practice, if not in results, until far into the century. Orthopaedics was not a field in which a doctor could count on being seen to be successful or show a rapid benefit, rather the reverse; better leave it to the bandagist, splint-maker, masseur, even the charlatan. Yet there came a point when the financial rewards of the latter excited medical hostility" (Le Vay, History of Orthopaedics, pp; 194-96). OCLC locates copies of the first edition in these US libraries: Chicago, NLM, College Physicians Phila. There was a reprinting in 1816, a copy of which is at Harvard. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Two Portraits: Boy with Hoop and Young Girl in a Landscape

      London, ca. 1810] - "Buck, Adam, 1758-1833, portrait painter, elder son of Jonathan Buck, a silversmith of Castle Street, Cork, was born there in 1759. With a younger brother, Frederick, he studied art from an early age, and acquired some repute in youth in his native city as a painter of miniature portraits in water-colour. Coming to London in 1795, he settled at 174 Piccadilly, and soon gained popularity. He not only continued to paint miniature portraits in water-colour, but produced many portraits in oil and crayon of larger size. Between 1795 and 1833, the year of his death, he exhibited at the academy as many as 171 pictures. He also exhibited ten other works at the British Institution and at the Society of British Artists in Suffolk Street. But the pictures that he exhibited represent a small proportion of his labours. Numerous pictures by him were reproduced in coloured engravings, mostly in stipple, and had a wide circulation. Of extant coloured engravings after his pictures the originals of as many as forty or fifty are not known to have been exhibited. Among his sitters were the Earl of Cavan, the Duke of York, Sir Francis Burdett, Major Cartwright, John Cam Hobhouse, and John Burke, author of the Peerage,' and his family. His portraits were carefully finished, although they were stiff in treatment and design. Buck was at the same time busily employed as a teacher of portrait painting, and in 1811 he brought out a volume entitled Paintings on Greek Vases,' which contained a hundred designs, not only drawn, but also engraved by himself. This work, which was planned to continue a similar compilation by Sir William Hamilton, is now extremely scarce. In 1807 he moved from Piccadilly to Frith Street, Soho, and after several changes of residence died at 15 Upper Seymour Street West in 1833. Buck was married and left two sons, Alfred and Sidney; the latter followed his father's profession. A miniature portrait of Buck by himself dated 1804, is in the Sheepshanks gallery of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. " - DNB 10 x 7-1/2 inches (images.

        Meadow below the Flower Garden

      Published by White and Co, London 1810 - A picturesque, tranquil view of the meadow adjacent to 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. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving. Very good condition apart from some overall light foxing, mild rippling, and a small water stain in the bottom margin.

Vol. 1 (of 2), 214 pp. Signed in ink on corner of flyleaf, "Wm. Floyd 1813." This is the 5th American edition of a popular moralistic novel by Englishwoman Hannah More, first published in 1809 and frequently reprinted on both sides of the Atlantic. Historical BackgroundWilliam Floyd (1734-1821) was a gentleman farmer from Brookhaven, Long Island, New York. He was a member of the Suffolk County Militia during the American Revolution, rising to major general. He represented New York in the First and Second Continental Congress (1774-1776), and signed the Declaration of Independence, after New York's legislature permitted its delegates to switch its vote to affirm the irrevocable step on July 9, 1776. Floyd was elected to the First Congress as an anti-Federalist, and served from 1789 to 1791. He later served in the state senate.Hannah More (1745-1833), educator, writer, and social reformer, was born in Stapleton, near Bristol, England. She became a teacher at her older sister's boarding school in Bristol, and wrote pastoral plays such as The Search after Happiness. More moved to London, into an elite literary and political circle which included Samuel Johnson, Edmund Burke, and William Wilberforce. She continued to write books, poems, and moralistic tracts such as Character of a Young Princess (1805), Christian Morals (1813), and Coelebs in Search of a Wife (1809). Her Village Politics, by Will Chip (1792) was designed to counter the radical political and religious views of Thomas Paine and the French Revolution. More also helped establish schools for the poor.ConditionContemporary half calf and paper boards (rubbed).

The plates depict the brig, Dorothea, "as she was blown up on the 15th of Oct. 1805," a submerged torpedo mine, and other illustrations showing how the torpedo is carried aboard a vessel, how a harpoon is used in torpedo explosives, etc. One of the chapters is about "the Imaginary Inhumanity of Torpedo War." Fulton was a skilled artist, inventor, and civil engineer. A native of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, he spent twenty years abroad in England developing his talents and inventions. His chief work was in the design of canal systems, so important to commercial activity in 19th-century America, and in the development of steamboats. An important work of American military technology. RINK 2195. HOWES F417, "b." SABIN 26199. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 20177. DAB VII, pp.68-71.

In fine condition. 2 volumes in 1. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of what can be called the first attempt at a hydrological survey of Portugal. Over a half-century later, it was still the only such work of any significance, according to Rodrigues de Gusmão (as quoted by Innocêncio). The greater part of the first volume consists of an inventory of all known sources for mineral water within continental Portugal, as well as the Island of São Miguel in the Azores. Each source is carefully classified and located geographically. The book begins with a general consideration of the medicinal properties of water. It then discusses the properties of different waters, such as those which contain gas, are naturally warm, saline, or contain sulfur. Toward the end of the first volume is further discussion of waters with differing properties, how to examine and analyze them, more on the healthful qualities of water, and how to choose the most effective. There is a section of purification.Tavares concludes that by far the best waters were those of Caldas da Rainha, which were already famous, with a number of books written about them in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The second volume is devoted entirely to the medicinal properties of the thermal waters of Caldas, what time of year to go there, diverse methods of application, and special dietary measures to be followed when at the spa.The author, born in Coimbra after 1750, died in Lisbon, 1812. He was a physician on the Medical Faculty of the Universidade de Coimbra, Primeiro Medico da Real Camara, @Physico?mór do Reino, and a member of the Academia Real das Sciencias de Lisboa and the Academia de Medicina de Barcelona.
