Pike's narrative stands, with those of Long and of Lewis and Clarke as the most important early book on western exploration and as a cornerstone of Western Americana. The maps were the first to exhibit a geographic knowledge of the southwest based on first hand exploration and are considered milestones in the mapping of the American west.

        A Treatise on the Law of War

      1810. Du Ponceau's Translation of De Rebus Bellicus Bynkershoek, Cornelius van [1673-1743]. Du Ponceau, Peter Stephen [1760-1844], Editor and Translator. A Treatise on the Law of War: Being the First Book of His Quaestiones Juris Publici. Translated From the Original Latin with Notes, by Peter Stephen du Ponceau. Philadelphia: Published by Farrand & Nicholas [et al.], 1810. xxxiv, 218 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, lettering piece and gilt-edge fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Some toning to text, somewhat darker in places, dampspotting and early annotations in pencil to a few leaves. A handsome copy. * Only edition, one of two issues (the other bound into copies of Volume III of the American Law Journal). A translation of De Rebus Bellicus, part one of Bynkershoek's Quaestiones Juris Publici (1737), A Treatise on the Law of War addresses the customs of land and sea warfare. A notably humane work, it condemns actions against civilians and advocates the fair treatment of prisoners of war. Du Ponceau's able translation is prefaced by a biography of the author, a table of cases, an index of citations from the Corpus Juris Civilis and an annotated bibliography of civil law treatises cited or referred to by the author. This latter item, which lists editions and translations, is interesting for its insights into the American reception of the civil law in the early 1800s. One of the most important jurists and international lawyers of his time, Bynkershoek was an influential Dutch jurist who founded the positive school of international law, which held that usage and practice were more important than deductions drawn from natural law. Du Ponceau is an important figure in the early history of American law and letters. He founded the Law Academy of Philadelphia in 1821, was the President of the American Philosophical Society and was a much-consulted expert on international relations and linguistics.

        An introduction to the science of botany, chiefly extracted from the works of Linnaeus; to which are added, several new tables and notes, and a life of the author

      Printed for F.C. and J. Rivington [etc.],London: : Printed for F.C. and J. Rivington [etc.], , 1810.. Fourth edition. 1/4 Leather. Good +. Fourth edition, corrected and enlarged. Second issue. 8vo (20.7 x 12.5 cm) . Modern quarter calf on marble boards, new end papters. Collation: xxiv, 580 p. + Copper engraved Portrait and 12 hand-colored, copper engraved plates. The plates were drawn by Henerson and engraved by Wettam. The plate shown here contains the extent of offsetting from plants and foxing . Offsetting and foxing for portrait and facing title page. Edge foxing and spotting throughout being most noticeable on a few of the plates collected at end of book. There are also remnant stains from plant material previously placed into the book in fresh state. Gutter stains in several leaves of preliminaries. In general the text has only light to moderate foxing and staining confined mostly to fore edge and bottom right corner of ca. 15 leaves. This edition was prepared by Lee’s son, James Lee the Younger, is only edition with color plates and expanded text with additional tables that complement the translation of Linneaus’s Philosophia botanica (presumably translated by E. W. Gray) that greatly enhance the utility of the book. The text has cancelled title page and pp. xv-xvii. The later single leaf is replacement for two leaves present in first issue which contained “some malicious details concerning Sir Joseph Banks”(Henrey II, p. 356) by Robert Thornton in his essay on the Life and Writings of James Lee. The present leaf is labeled xv-xvi/xvii-xviii and contains text that extends beyond that of adjacent leaves. There is no known copy of the first issue with the comments on Sir Joseph Banks. The last section of index and color plates with accompanying explanatory text has not been bound even with the remaining text block, thus extending out at the fore edge. This may have been done purposely to permit reader to see full dimension of plates with border. Tighter binding would have risked limiting view of objects on plates. This is a rare color copy of Lee’s “original work that constituted the first treatise of treatise of the Linnaean system in England.” (Stafleu & Cowan 4289). There is dedication to James Edward Smith by James Lee the Younger followed by Thornton’s essay on James Lee. There are VIII Tables complementing the translation of text for the twenty four Linnean Classes, Appendix on Palms, five (5) chapters on Genera and, in Part Third, twenty three (23) chapters on plant types, i.e. vegetables divisible into families or tribes, all parts of plants, seeds and various aspects of growth, germination and fine structures found on plants, ending with types of inflorescence and other morphological features on plants that permitting distinction of species and their varieties . The remaining portion of the book contains tables that include portions of the Termini Botanici: A dictionary of botanical terms for use of students in botany. “Lee (1715-1795) was gardener at Syon House, Middlesex and to Duek of Argyll at Whitton, Middleses. He also was partner with J. Kennedy in Vineyard Nursery, Hammersmith around 1745. He had a number of plant collectors providing plants from America and at the Cape (Horn?). He was a correspondent of Linneases. He introduced Fuchsia coccinea. He published Introdcution to Botany in 1760. The fourth edition (present copy and only one with) has his portrait ” (Desmond, Dict. Brit. & Irish Bot.& Hort, p.378)(Henrey, 961; Staffleu & Cowan, 4289) This is a rare color copy of Lee’s “original work that constituted the first treatise of treatise of the Linnaean system in England.” (Stafleu & Cowan 4289).

Kraus wrote that he entered and then left the Order of Mercy, but by 1814 he was a captain of the dragoons. No other copies known at auction since the Oscar Carbone sale of 1968 (lot 357).

        THE HISTORY OF LITTLE FANNY, Exemplified in a Series of Figures

      London: S. and J. Fuller, 1810. Pp. [2], 15, [1], [2].Fifteen numbered pages of rhyming text, verso of final page blank, both front and rear original blanks present. Illustrated by accompanying hand-painted printed card doll figures; there are seven outfits; and a head (there are no removable hats in this copy - see note below). The book and figures are housed in a contemporary vellum slipcase with the title "Little Fanny" in manuscript to the front panel. The card wrappers of the book are in remarkably good condition, internally the book is very good, a little reading wear and minimal staining to the edges of a few pages, the original ribbon is not present, the figures are in very good bright condition, the top part of a dolls head being carried by Fanny is missing in one figure and the same figure has had a small part of the base replaced in hand-drawn facsimile with hand colouring (not recent). Overall a very good first edition copy. (Bibliographical note: we also have an 1811 (seventh edition) of this work and it has been useful to compare directly the two editions. It is interesting to note that whilst the figures are ostensibly the same the printing of them is quite different - the later edition is bolder with additional lines engraved; additionally the way the outline of the figures have been cut out differs too. One might suspect that the number of additional items such as hats etc. differed too between editions - and what the publisher had available at any one time.). First Edition. Card Covers. Very Good. 16mo.

      Baltimore [Md.]: Hunter & Robinson, 1810. First Edition. Hardcover. Moderate to heavy foxing, some staining to upper half of pages toward the end; binding Fine. Overall Very Good. Duodecimo (3-3/4" x 6-1/4") bound in full calf leather recently and sympathetically rebacked retaining the original morocco spine label; 252 pages. Complete but for the rear endpaper. An Annotated Catalogue of the Edward C. Atwater Collection of American Popular Medicine and Health Reform: "Brevitt provides chapters on the anatomies of the female pelvis, the fetal head and the female organs of generation; menstruation and its disorders; diseases of the female genitalia; pregnancy and its disorders; 'practical midwifery' (including praeturnatural labors, the use of forceps and caesarian section); the puerperium; and the diseases of infants," as well as postnatal care of infants. Brevitt also presents strategies for abortion, despite his footnote: “I feel constrained to note here the horrid depravity of human weakness, in wretches lost to every sense of religion, morality, and that mutual attachment from a mother to her offspring, and every tender tie in nature, seek the means to procure abortion: nor are there wanting in the other sex, infernals wicked enough to aid their endeavours" (page 117n). One of the methods suggested is “electricity” which would “restore discharge,” an idea that would be picked up by later nineteenth century entrepreneurs who developed several contraptions designed to help “obstructed” women. Austin 271; Shaw & Shoemaker; 19633.

        The Duty and Authority of Justices of the Peace, in the State of

      1810. Haywood, John [1762-1826], Compiler. The Duty and Authority of Justices of the Peace, In the State of Tennessee. Nashville: Printed and Sold by Thomas G. Bradford, 1810. [iv], 372, [7] pp. An additional four leaves, all containing advertisements, not present in this copy. Octavo (7" x 4-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, gilt rules and lettering piece to spine, hinges mended. Some toning and faint dampspotting to text, several printing faults resulting in torn leaves near the gutter, typical with early frontier imprints. Two later owner signatures to front pastedown, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. The first JP manual printed in Tennessee. With its choice of topics and rather amateurish printing, this manual evokes the state of frontier life in the early nineteenth century. Haywood was a jurist and historian from North Carolina who moved to Tennessee in 1807. Soon after his arrival he enhanced his already solid reputation by publishing a series of legal compilations and the earliest important histories of his adopted state. He served on the Tennessee Supreme Court for the last 12 years of his life. Other editions of his manual were published in 1811 and 1816. Though all editions are somewhat common in institutional collections, there are few copies of any edition in law libraries. Regarding the first edition, OCLC locates 4 copies (at Harvard, the Universities of Michigan and Minnesota and Yale). Also, no copy has appeared at auction in more than 30 years.

        Lough Dochart, Western Highlands, Scotland

      London: published by F.J. Sargent, 6 August 1810. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by F.J. Sargent after J. Walmsley, backed onto early card mount. 19 1/4 x 25 3/4 inches. 28 3/4 x 22 1/2 inches. A highly atmospheric and lyrical view of `a place of retirement and peace' (Dorothy Wordsworth) Firmly in the 'picturesque' school of painters, Walmsley here shows an early summer morning on Loch Dochart, in Perthshire, Scotland: two travellers make an early start and the mist is still to be burnt off the waters by the newly risen sun, to the right the ruins of a castle are given a romantic air by the surrounding vegetation and the strongly- shadowed morning light. The Loch lies at the western end of Glen Lochart, a mile to the east of Crianlarich and in the shadow of Ben More.

        History of Greece

      1810 - London - T. Cadell, 1795 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of Mitford's History of Greece. William Mitford (10 February 1744 10 February 1827) was anEnglish historian. Mitford as encouraged by French scholars whom he met in Paris, Avignon and Nice to give himself systematically to the study of Greek history. But it was Edward Gibbon, with whom he was closely associated when they both were officers in the South Hampshire Militia, who suggested to Mitford the form which his work should take. In 1784 the first of the volumes of his History of Greece appeared, and the fifth and last of these quartos was published in 1810, after which the state of Mitford's eyesight and other physical infirmities, including a loss of memory, forbade his continuation of the enterprise, although he painfully revised successive new editionsIn addition to his History of Greece, he published a few smaller works, the most important of which was an Essay on the Harmony of Language, 1774. The style of Mitford is natural and lucid, but without the rich colour of Gibbon. He affected some oddities both of language and of orthography, for which he was censured and which he endeavoured to revise. Volumes 1 to 6 are numerated to the spines with arabic numerals, 7 to 10 with roman. These earlier volumes (dated 1795 to 1797) are stated to be third editions to the title pages. The rest bear no record of an edition. With the ink inscription of one Anne Macbeth to the title page of each volume. Complete in 10 volumes. Condition: Uniformly bound in half calf over marbled boards. Externally, generally smart with light wear to extremities and joints only. backstrips of older volumes worn in places with some loss to head and tails. One board detached, 10 hinges held by cords only, three tender and one strained. Internally, firmly bound. Light spotting throughout, heaviest to first and last few pages. Evidence of past worming to volume 4. Otherwise clean. Overall: GOOD with some earlier volumes GOOD ONLY due to hinges or lack thereof..

        Ta Tsing Leu Lee; being the Fundamental Laws, and a Selection from the Supplementary Statutes of the Penal Code of China

      London: T. Cadell and W. Davies,, 1810. Originally printed and published in Pekin ... Translated from the Chinese and Accompanied with an Appendix, consisting of Authentic Documents, and a Few Occasional Notes, Illustrative of the Subject of the Work ... Quarto (310 × 245 mm) Contemporary diced russia, rebacked, title gilt to the spine, flat bands with gilt fleurons, lozenges in blind to the compartments, wide gilt palmette rolled panel to the boards, all edges gilt, foliate roll, gilt, to the turn-ins, drab endpapers. Engraved frontispiece of title page of the most recent Chinese edition, 1805. A little rubbed at the extremities, hinges strengthened with linen, foxing to the first blank, frontispiece and title page, with off-setting from the frontispiece quite heavily to both the previous blank and the title page, otherwise just light toning and the occasional spot of pale foxing, a very good, wide-margined copy. First edition. The first Chinese book directly translated into English, and a key contribution to the understanding of Chinese culture; "a watershed in modern Sinology in particular and modern Orientalism in general, not simply because it was the first English translation directly from a Chinese text, but more because it signalled a fresh point of departure for Westerners to decode and essentialize Chinese law and society in a far more professionally "authoritative" and systematic fashion" (Chen, Law as the Decoding Machine and Cultural Translation for Colonial Control: Staunton's Ta Tsing Leu Lee and Its Historical Legacy). Staunton had been educated at home in line with his father's "peculiar educational notions ... [living] entirely in adult society, developing precocious abilities at languages and natural history" (ODNB). He studied Chinese when accompanying his father on Lord Macartney's mission to China, "Staunton, who was nominally a page to the ambassador, was able to write Chinese characters, and was the only member of the embassy who could speak Chinese to the emperor". He became a writer at the East India Company's Canton factory in 1798, advancing to supercargo in 1804 and chief interpreter in 1808, and in 1816 he accompanied Amherst's ill-fated embassy to Peking as the factory chief, after which he returned to Britain; "Having accomplished my favourite object, of revisiting Pekin in a diplomatic capacity; and, having accumulated a competent fortune in addition to my patrimonial inheritance ... I rejoiced to find myself able to terminate the period of my banishment, at the early age of six-and-thirty". He was MP for various constituencies between 1818 and 1852, he was nominated to the East India Committee (1830) and Tea Duties Committee (1834) of the House of Commons, supported Ashley's motion against the opium trade in 1843, and spoke frequently on colonial issues. A Fellow of the Royal Society, sometime foreign secretary of the Royal Academy, vice-president of the British Association of Science, in 1823 he was a founder of the Royal Asiatic Society, to which he presented his collection of 3000 Chinese books. He died in 1859. This copy with the bookplate of Harriot, Duchess of St. Albans' Stratton Street library, William Beauclerk, the 9th Duke, was a prominent contributor to the Oriental Translation Fund.
