(Howes: P372) First edition.Zebulon Montgomery Pike,1779-1813, American explorer, an army officer, born Lamberton (now part of Trenton), N.J. He joined the army (c.1793) and was commissioned second lieutenant in 1799. In 1805 he led an exploring party to search for the source of the Mississippi River; although he mistakenly identified Red Cedar Lake (now Cass Lake) in Minnesota as the source, he was not far wrong. After his return he was sent on an expedition (1806-7) to explore the headwaters of the Arkansas and Red rivers and to reconnoiter Spanish settlements in New Mexico. Pike and his men went up the Arkansas River to the site of Pueblo, Colorado and explored much of the country, sighting the peak that is named after him, Pikes Peak. When he and a small party went to the Rio Grande, they were taken into custody by the Spanish who brought them to Santa Fe and then to Chihuahua and finally released them at the border of the Louisiana Territory. Upon his return, Pike was accused of complicity in the plot of Aaron Burr and James Wilkinson to detach Western territory from the United States, but he was exonerated by the Secretary of War. Pike was promoted to the rank of brigadier general during the War of 1812. He was killed while commanding his troops during the successful assault on York (now Toronto).Condition:Frontispiece and title edges repaired. Lacks other plates and maps, else a very good copy.

        Documents manuscrits sur les enfants abandonnés en 1810 en Dordogne (arrondissement de Nontron : quatre lettres autographes datées et signées (échange épistolaire entre le Préfet de la Dordogne et le Sous-Préfet de Nontron sur le sort des enfants, ainsi qu'un manuscrit de 4 pages in-folio sur la situation des orphelins en Dordogne

      1810 - Enfants trouvés et abandonnés de la Gironde, de la Dordogne et du Périgord au XIX° siècle : A la campagne où ils grandissaient on les appelait « bourdeaux », en référence aux lieux de mauvaise vie, de mauvaises mères, des bordels. Lorsqu'une mère, en abandonnant son enfant, s'attache à envelopper cet abandon d'un épais mystère, l'enfant sera ordinairement illégitime, quelquefois adultérin. Ordinairement la mère a besoin du secret, parce qu'elle veut sauver sa réputation ; si elle n'a de moyens d'existence que dans son travail, elle craint aussi de perdre la position qui le lui procure. Si elle fille encore, elle appréhendera de voir s'évanouir pour elle l'espoir d'un établissement. Mais des personnes aisées, et même riches, recourent aussi à ce moyen de voiler leur faute. Le dépôt dans un hospice leur assure un secret bien plus inviolable qu'un placement en nourrice qui appellerait des confidents.Quelquefois pour mieux s'assurer du secret, on fait porter l'enfant dans un hospice plus ou moins éloignés ; il y a des gens qui font de ce transport un objet habituel de commerce. La Manufacture pouvait se définir comme un rouage essentiel de la direction des hôpitaux de la ville de Bordeaux, comme un lieu de passage ou comme un lieu de vie. C'est à la Manufacture que se situaient les services qui traitaient de la vie des enfants qui pouvaient être regroupés en trois catégories en 1811. Les enfants trouvés dont les parents ne sont pas connus - ce sont les plus nombreux jusqu'en 1852. Les enfants abandonnés nés de parents connus qui d'abord élevés par eux ou par d'autres personnes, en sont délaissés, sans qu'on sache ce que les pères et mères sont devenus. Les subsistants : leur parents sont connus. Ils sont placés provisoirement. Par la suite, certains jeunes ont été classés dans les indigents, orphelins, etc. C'est par le moyen du Tour que le nourrisson faisait son entrée officielle dans la société. « Nous ignorons comment été faite la boîte de l'Hôpital Saint-Louis, mais nous savons mieux qu'elle était celle de l'Hôpital de la manufacture auquel l'Hôpital Saint Louis fut réuni en 1772. Elle se composait d'une barrique vide dont on avait scié dans le sens vertical près de la moitié des douves, de façon à conserver intacte la partie inférieure. La barrique était montée sur un pivot central. Un autre pivot la maintenait dans sa partie supérieure et c'est ainsi qu'elle pouvait tourner facilement sur elle-même. Elle était placée juste derrière la façade principale de la maison et communiquait avec l'extérieur par une large baie circulaire pratiquée dans le mur, à hauteur d'appui. A travers cette ouverture on passait l'enfant que l'on déposait dans la barrique. On faisait ensuite pivoter celle-ci, on sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné dans la sinistre machine. On comprend qu'on ait pu y introduire non seulement le nouveau-né, mais plusieurs enfants, de toute taille, même âgés de douze ans ». « On sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné ». Après avoir été baptisé, l'enfant rejoignait la crèche où des nourrices le prenaient en charge. Car, quelle que soit son origine - il peut venir de départements extérieurs et certaines personnes faisaient office d'intermédiaires - une inscription était portée sur les registres de naissance de la ville de Bordeaux. L'histoire de cet enfant s'arrêtait là. En ce qui concerne les survivants, des petits dossiers regroupent des traces de la vie l'enfant, complétant les informations figurant sur le registre: séjours chez des familles, mariage, ou problèmes divers liés à l'enfance ou à l'adolescence de ces enfants ou très jeunes adultes. Les enfants étaient mis en nourrice dans le nord-Gironde, le sud de la Charente-Inférieure, de la Charente et dans l'est de la Dordogne. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        John Astor ALS with stunning Fur trading content, negotiating a deal during the European trade restrictions

      New York: , March 24, 1810. New York, March 24, 1810. 7.75" x 9.5". "Bi-fold ALS, 7.75"" x 9.5"", scripted entire in Astor's hand on the first page, with the balance of the pages left blank. Docketed to verso of second page. Tipped into a backing sheet with second leaf inlaid to the page. Signed and dated by Astor ""New York 24 March 1810"", and signed in full signature of ""John Jacob Astor"". Expected folds, offsetting to first page, else near fine. Accompanied by a fine engraving of John Astor, 5.25"" x 8.25"" laid into a page, along with documented provenance as noted below. John Astor's humble beginnings were in his distant past by the time he wrote this letter. By 1810 Astor had been operating in the fur trade for about 30 years and had amassed an enormous fortune. Astor had taken advantage of the Jay Treaty between Great Britain and the United States in 1794, which opened new markets in Canada and the Great Lakes region. In London, Astor at once made a contract with the North West Company, who from Montreal rivaled the trade interests of the Hudson's Bay Company, then based in London. Astor imported furs from Montreal to New York and shipped them to Europe By 1800, he had amassed almost a quarter of a million dollars, and had become one of the leading figures in the fur trade. His agents worked throughout the western areas and were ruthless in competition. This letter penned by Astor to John Mason esq, encompasses numerous revealing points. The first of which Astor is referencing the purchase of Deer skins in New Orleans (""orleans""). New Orleans was a central port, and a hub by which furs and other exports were exported to Europe. Fur traders floated up and down the Mississippi in flat bottom boat/barges whereby they could move back and forth between the Indians upriver and sail back downstream with their precious furs to New Orleans. By this time, Astor was a formidable institution in the Fur trade, but by 1809 curtailment of American trade with Europe created a deerskin glut in the united States. Superintendent Mason, (the addressee of Astor's letter) noted the problem early in his term and ordered the factors at the most active factories to shop buying the unsalable skins. However his wishes were ignored by the fur traders because refusal to buy skins would alienate their Indian partners. Mason had also told his agents to shave, treat and store the skins they had on hand, rather than shipping them onward. Despite some spoilage most of the deerskins survived and by February 1810, the Office of Indian Trade had nearly 109 tons of skins warehoused in New Orleans.With European trade still restricted by an 1809 Non-Intercourse act, Superintendent Mason decided he had to dump these pelts on the market at any price he could get. Mason approached John Jacob Astor who had built at the time a fur trading network that extended from Leipzig to Saint Louis and had a net worth exceeding a quarter million dollars. This ALS is pursuant to Astor's response to Mason in which it was known that he had offered to buy all of Mason's deerskins for 4-10 cents per pound, representing a steep discount (30-40 percent) from market price. Ultimately when Mason responded and tried to negotiate, the deal fell through and he sold the surplus skins in New Orleans for whatever the market would bear. To Mason's good fortune, the market picked up later that year and he managed to sell new skins for 32-40 cents per pound. This letter to Mason is shown in full below:""Sir, New York 24 March 1810I have your esteemed letter of the 20th. If you thought it for the interest of the U.S to have the Deer skins sold here anthe terms (illegible) made last proposed by you when I had the pleasure of seeing you I would agree to bidthe price which was than agreed onfor the detterment quantitys but Iwould not like to engage so long atime before the skins could be broughtfrom orleans here to find my self to any price, but if you will have the sale made here you may in that case consider me as agreeing to bid asabove mentioned. I am Sir with Respect your very humble servt John Jacob AstorP.S. will you have the goodness to inform me in case you do not sell here what the terms of the sale at orleans will be?""(And as noted above, we know this deal fell ultimately through, and the skins were sold to the firm W. & Morris ...)However, in the background of this political theater, and while he was negotiating with Mason, Astor simultaneously organized the Pacific Fur Company in June 1810. While he managed the business in New York, he sent two groups of his employees west—one by sea to carry supplies and initiate coastal trading, and one by land to found a string of fur posts across North America. Between them, the two groups of Astorians established a terminal fort on the Pacific Coast from which to trade with China. In September 1810, Pacific Fur Company partners Duncan McDougall, Alexander McKay, David Stuart, and Robert Stuart sailed from New York on the Tonquin. The trip was not a smooth one. At the Falkland Islands, Robert Stuart threatened ship captain Jonathan Thorn at gunpoint in order to save the lives of several fur company men .In September 1810, Pacific Fur Company partners Duncan McDougall, Alexander McKay, David Stuart, and Robert Stuart sailed from New York on the Tonquin. The trip was not a smooth one. At the Falkland Islands, Robert Stuart threatened ship captain Jonathan Thorn at gunpoint in order to save the lives of several fur company men Astor, not known for dabbling in one business adventure at a time began buying land in New York in 1799 and acquired sizable holdings along the waterfront. After the start of the 19th century, flush with China trade profits, he became more systematic, ambitious, and calculating by investing in New York real estate. In 1803, he bought a 70-acre farm that ran west of Broadway to the Hudson River between 42nd and 46th streets. Astor’s grand venture was plagued by mismanagement and conflicts with Native people but most of all by the War of 1812, and the partners’ fear of attacks by British ships. Astor withdrew from the American Fur Company, as well as all his other ventures, and instead used the money to buy and develop large tracts of Manhattan real estate. It was this decision that launched his financial success into the stratosphere. Astor correctly predicted New York's rapid growth northward on Manhattan Island, and he purchased more and more land beyond the then-existing city limits. Astor rarely built on his land, but leased it to others for rent and their use. After retiring from his business, Astor spent the rest of his life as a patron of culture. At the time of his death in 1848, Astor was the wealthiest person in the United States, leaving an estate estimated to be worth at least $20 million. His estimated net worth, if calculated as a fraction of the U.S. gross domestic product at the time, would have been equivalent to $110.1 billion in 2006 U.S. dollars, making him the fifth-richest person in American history. With his success in his later years, his life was spent instead managing his investments and entering the world of philanthropy. He supported the ornithologist John James Audubon in his studies, art work, and travels , and bequeathed $400,000 to build the Astor Library for the New York public, which was later consolidated with other libraries to form the New York Public Library.An important letter, revealing a significant period in history highlighting the illustrious fur trade and the complex embargos and politics of the era.

        MAP OF SPAIN AND PORTUGAL.

      Two folding sheets only (of the four that were produced), showing the route taken by troops across Northern Spain in 1813, with pencil manuscript itinerary on the verso of one sheet. 810mm x 580mm each.

It appears that our route follows more or less that of General Rowland Hill's column of the allied army in the advance on Vitoria (see Ian Robertson, An Atlas of the Peninsular War, Yale 2010). Contemporary maps and notes such as these are rare. Luggage would be kept to the minimum, so the two southern maps would have been discarded as irrelevant.

        THE WORKS OF THE ENGLISH POETS, FROM CHAUCER TO COWPER ; INCLUDING THE SERIES EDITED, WITH PREFACES, BIOGRAPHICAL AND CRITICAL BY DR. SAMUEL JOHNSON: AND THE MOST APPROVED TRANSLATIONS.[IN 21 VOLUMES]

      London: J. Johnson [And 48 Others],. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1810. Hardcover. 15000 pages; Abraham Cowley, Sir John Denham, John Milton, Samuel Butler (Hudibras) , John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester, Wentworth , Dillon, Earl of Roscommon, Thomas Otway, Edmund Waller, John Pomfret, Charles Sackville, Earl of Dorset, George Stepney, John Philips, William Walsh, John Dryden, Edmund Smith, Richard Duke, William King, Thomas Sprat, Charles Montague, Earl of Halifax, Thomas Parnell, Samuel Garth, Nicholas Rowe, Joseph Addison, John Hughes, John Sheffield, Duke of Buckingham, Matthew Prior, William Congreve, Sir Richard Blackmore, Elijah Fenton, John Gay, George Granville, Lord Lansdown, Thomas Yalden, Thomas Tickell, James Hammond, William Somervile, Richard Savage, Jonathan Swift, William Broome, Alexander Pope, Christopher Pitt, James Thomson, Isaac Watts, Ambrose Philips, Gilbert West, William Collins, John Dyer, William Shenstone, Edward Young, David Mallet, Mark Akenside, Thomas Gray, George Lord Lyttelton. Approximstely 15,000 pages. The Lives, which are critical as well as biographical studies, appeared as prefaces to selections of each poet's work, and most of them were longer than originally expected. [9] Johnson justified his approach in the advertisement for the work: "my purpose was only to have allotted to every Poet an Advertisement, like those which we find in the French Miscellanies, containing a few dates and a general character." [1] However, he did not limit himself to bare dates and biographical events, but created a series of Lives with, according to his Preface to the edition of 1783, "the honest intention of giving pleasure". Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets (1779–81) is a work by Samuel Johnson, comprising short biographies and critical appraisals of 52 poets, most of whom lived during the eighteenth century. It is arranged, approximately, by date of death. Six of the Lives have been singled out as the most "important": John Milton, John Dryden, Alexander Pope, Joseph Addison, Jonathan Swift, and Thomas Gray. Soundly bound in calf over marbled boards with crimson morocco labels. Light rubbing to extremities and a bit of quite light foxing. Overall a very pleasing presentation with all bindings straight and firm. ; 46 .

        Papers on Mechanics, published by the Society of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce. Vol. I. 1810 - 1843.

      - London c1811-43. Thick octavo publisher's cloth backed boards (neatly recased), printed paper spine label; title and contents leaves, some 680 pages and 115 engraved plates (some double page or folding). Spotting of some plates but a rather good copy. "Only one hundred copies selected" according to the title page. This bit of economic housekeeping on the part of the society, using up their stock of journals, gives us a handy compendium of 120 papers on a plethora of subjects, from the odd and mundane to some quite important advances in subects like life-saving and safety, scientific instruments and timekeepers, shipbuilding, fire escapes, and all manner of machines. Despite the title's claim the papers stop in the early 1820's. Other compilations were produced, one on chemistry, one on trade and the colonies, and maybe one on manufactures and one on agriculture (the descriptions I can find for these are unclear) but all seem to be rare.

        BEFORE THE MOST NOBLE AND RIGHT HONORABLE THE LORDS COMMISSIONERS OF APPEALS IN PRIZE CAUSES. THE SCHOONER NOSTRA SIGNORA DE LOS DOLORES, ALIAS LA AURORA, JOSEPH ARNAU Y CASTANER, MASTER

      London, 1810. 8,[4],[4],18,[2]pp. Large folio. Dbd. Good. These documents are the five printed legal briefs related to the appeal to the British Admiralty Court in 1810 of a case which originated in Jamaica five years earlier. The British schooner, Pike, seized a Spanish vessel, Nostra Signora, just off Jamaica as a prize of war, since Spain was allied with France during the Napoleonic Wars. However, another British ship, Goelan, then claimed to have played a role in the capture and was referred to the prize court there. The court jointly awarded the claim, and the case was then appealed in England. These briefs provide a detailed picture of an incident in Caribbean life during the troubled period of the Napoleonic Wars. Documents such as these are extremely rare, having been printed in very small numbers for the use of the litigants. Present are the cases of the appellant and respondent, and appendices of testimony from all crews, logs, etc. According to a manuscript note on the first brief, the court awarded the case to the Pike.
