        Tunbridge Wells, and Its Neighbourhood, Illustrated by a Series of Etchings, and Historical Descriptions

      London: William Miller and Edmund Lloyd, 1810. Hardcover. Fair. [6], 87 p. + plates. 43 engraved plates and vignettes. Cloth hardcover with small label at top front, some dampstains and spots on covers. Spine and front board detached from text block. Rear hinge cracked. Some foxing and dampstains within. British engraver Letitia Byrne (1779-1849) was the daughter and pupil of engraver William Byrne. Artistic talent ran in her family; all her five siblings also became artists, including her three sisters. Letitia was exhibiting at the Royal Academy at the age of 20, but reached real success when she etched the series of scenes for this book. The original artist who drew the scenes was the author, Paul Amsinck. Many well-known landmarks are to be found here, including the enormous house called Knole, Penshurst Place, and Hever Castle.

        Elements of Mineralogy. The third edition.

      Printed for J. Mackinlay, London 1810 - 2 vols., 8vo, pp. xxiv, 452; xiv, 459, [1]. Three folding leaves of tables included in pagination. Contemporary half sprinkled calf, plain grey boards, spines divided by double gilt rules, black morocco labels, other compartments with central gilt tools. Some light toning and spotting. Joints rubbed and one just cracking at head, labels mostly defective. Bookplate of Robert Guthrie of Berwick (engraved by Palmer) to front pastedowns. The third edition of this major work, 'the first systematic mineralogy in English that is based on the chemical composition of minerals. combined with the Wernerian method of using external features & properties' (Sinkankas, referring to the first edition of 1784). The second edition was 'greatly enlarged and completely rewritten' (Sinkankas, describing the second of 1794-6); this third presumably just reprints the second, since it reproduces its preface verbatim, and Sinkankas only mentions it in passing at the end of his entry for the second edition. It is much scarcer than the earlier editions, with COPAC locating copies in 6 institutions against dozens of ESTC listings for the first two. See Sinkankas 3431. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Medicine

      July 4, 1810. Autograph Letter Signed "J Bowrs"3 pages, 6.75" x 8.25", on two conjoined sheets of paper plus integral address leaf, New London, [Connecticut], July 4, 1810 to Dr. Thomas Hartley of Newport, Rhode Island asking for the doctor's assistance. Bowrs, a native of Newport, now living in New London, Connecticut writes, in part: "...I had been situated during my long Illness, now going on five months; as to have been benefitted by your Advice and assistance of which I know of no man in the medical Line from long Experience to afford -- When I left Newport this time twelve months [ago]... I took a ride with my daughter Loring to Middletown, and there meeting with an old Physician, by the name of Osbourn, I consulted him with regard to my Cough, and he prescribed an Electuary, which entirely relieved me, and carried off with it all the rheumatic Pains, I had been long troubled with, and I continued to enjoy as great a Share of health, as usual, until the latter end of Winter, when a lurking Fever, loss of Appetite and Spirits came suddenly on me, I consulted a Doctor Watrons who gave me some medicines, which availed but little, and, after some time, my Legs began to swell very much, which alarmed me, from an Idea that a Dropsy was about to ensue but the Doctor quieted by apprehensions by telling me that the swelling was entirely to be ascribed to Debility and weakness of Body, and directed hot Baths, and a a number of other Remedies, which were all tried, but without Effect -- not satisfied with this practice I called in a Doctor Butts, who soon convinced me, that the swelling was occasioned by Water -- when you to to Bed, says he, you are greatly swelled, and in the morning when you rise, the swelling is almost gone; occasioned by the horisontal [sic] posture, in which you lay, during the night, This was convincing to me, and corroborated by a very frequent call during the night to make water, in large Quantities of very few Calls, indeed, during the Day, my Legs continuing to swell in the Day, and going off in the night till at length they were less than ever in the Morning, and the Doctors operating to little purpose all the while, and my self very miserable -- My Cough returned about two months past, became troublesome and still continues and a visible abatement of the Swelling, in Consequence. My present situation, I will just describe to you and ask whether you have ever met with a similar Case? my legs still swell, particularly my ankles & feet during the Day, and, at times, are very painful, and swelling is gone in the Morning - Thro' the night, the Calls for making Water are very frequent, and my Urine very hot -- Cough and raise much, and not the smallest Perspiration, no more moisture on any part of my body, than on a Board, and nothing has any Effect to produce it -- am extremely languid and reduced to a Shadow of a Shade -- Opiates have been found necessary Often administered -- All my fiends encourage me by saying I look better -- I am so as to Fever.. now some relish for my Food, but cannot w[alk down] the Street, without help..." More fine content making for a superb exercise for any physician or medical student!Partial fold separations and small loss from seal tear affecting some text on page three, else very good condition.

        Napoleone legislatore. Panegirico

      per Nicolò Bettoni, 1810. Cm. 35, pp. (8) 184. Con ritratto f.t. di Napoleone all'antiporta e bella aquila al frontespizio e in fine (incisioni in rame). Brossura muta posteriore con dorso rinforzato. Piccoli restauri al margine delle prime due cc., trascurabili fioriture/macchiette (più evidenti all'ultima carta), qualche trascurabile alone limitato all'angolo di alcune carte. Nel complesso buon esemplare, in barbe e ad ampi margini. Pietro Giordani (1774-1848), piacentino, fu filosofo e letterato di chiara fama. Così la voce G. nel Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani (vol. 55) a proposito di quest'opera: "Sul modello degli autori latini il G. vi esaltava non il condottiero e le sue vittorie ma colui che dando alla società italiana nuove leggi aveva cominciato a liberarla dalla "pestilenza feudale", dai privilegi, dalle disuguaglianze, dall'ignoranza, dalla soggezione alla Chiesa. Napoleone era dunque il sovrano illuminato che utilizzava il potere assoluto per incivilire il mondo, non per dominarlo; e in questa visione di stampo settecentesco rientravano una nota materialistica (il pensiero umano era presentato come una secrezione del cervello) e l'ormai acquisita prospettiva anticlericale e antireligiosa, qui visibile nell'apologia del divorzio appena introdotto. Tali contenuti, se qualificavano in senso liberal-borghese il progressismo giordaniano, rendevano d'altra parte meno significativi, perché funzionali comunque a un'attesa di rinnovamento profondo, gli accenti di piaggeria sparsi qua e là nel Panegirico: accenti che i contemporanei colsero e talvolta criticarono, come fece, per es., con particolare acrimonia U. Foscolo". Raro e ricercato. Cfr. Iccu..

        AN ENQUIRY CONCERNING THE INTELLECTUAL AND MORAL FACULTIES, AND LITERATURE OF NEGROES; FOLLOWED WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE LIFE AND WORKS OF FIFTEEN NEGROES & MULATTOES, DISTINGUISHED IN SCIENCE, LITERATURE AND THE ARTS.

      Brooklyn: Printed by Thomas Kirk, 1810. - [2],253,[2]pp. Half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Minor toning, faint ink stamp and small paper flaw on titlepage, a few 19th century library stamps. Very good. An important and very scarce early history of African- American literature and arts. First printed in Paris in 1808, this is the first and apparently only English translation. Abbe Henri Gregoire (1750-1831), a former bishop of Blois in France, was a prominent abolitionist, humanist and teacher of Alexander Dumas. The present work, which established Gregoire's reputation, strikes at the hypocrisy of contemporaries such as Thomas Jefferson in their assessments of the talents of African-Americans. The author cites examples of gifted black writers and artists, including Benjamin Banneker, Phillis Wheatley and Francis Williams. Chapters are devoted to the high moral qualities of African-Americans, and talents in the trades and arts, especially literature. "This now scarce volume set the standards by which most biographical and historical works on gifted blacks were written during the following decades. Gregoire's book was an important and authoritative contribution to Afro-American historicity" - Blockson. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 20254. BLOCKSON 18.

        Instruction détaillée pour porter les lunettes de toutes les différentes especes au plus haut degré de perfection dont elles sont susceptibles tirée de la théorie dioptrique de Mr. Euler le pere et mise a la portée de tous les ouvriers en ce genre. Avec la description dún microscope qui peut passer pour le plus parfait dans son espèce et qui est propre à produire tous les grossissemens qu'on voudra.St. Petersburg, Académie Imp. des Sciences, 1774. 4to. With 2 folding engraved plates. Contemporary Russian mottled calf, richly gold-tooled spine. Rebacked (ca. 1810?).

      - DSB V, pp. 209-210; Daumas, Scientific instruments, pp. 152-153. First and only edition of an important manual on the construction of telescopes and microscopes, the first publication by Nicolas Fuss (1755-1826), who grew up in a modest Swiss family but was to become one of the leading mathematicians and astronomers of his generation. The majority of Fuss's writings present solutions to problems raised by Leonhard Euler, in the fields of mathematics, mechanics, astronomy and geodesy. Euler's memoirs had been published earlier, but they were inaccessible to most people working in optics. Fuss published the present work, giving a very simple and rather schematic résumé of Euler's work. He listed "a number of formulae for the construction of telescopes with a magnification of five to fifty times, for achromatic telescopes with three lenses and a magnification from 25 to 320 times, and for achromatic telescopes with four or five lenses" (Daumas). Fuss gave all the necessary theoretical measurements for constructing these instruments. It ends with a description of a microscope with an achromatic objective of three lenses.With a small brown stain in the lower outside corner of the last few leaves, a small tear in the gutter margin of one leaf and small stains in the foot margin of another, but otherwise in very good condition and with large margins. Rebacked and restored at an early date.

        [Trade catalogue for John Slater's patented steam kitchen]

      [Birmingham, 1810. Oblong small folio. 16 engraved leaves. With 4 small letterpress explanatory handbills mounted (one on front pastedown, the others on verso of first three plates). Contemporary manuscript annotations, including prices. Contemporary calf-backed marbled paper wrappersProvenance: Elizabeth David (booklabel)Rare early illustrated trade catalogue for steam ovens.James Slater's steam kitchen was primarly used in workhouses, hospitals, or other such high-volume, low-cost kitchens. The cast iron stoves, which also included a roasting oven, heated water to create steam, which was then carried by internal pipes to reservoirs which held custom-built rectangular pots. The letterpress advertisement on verso of the first plate describes the process:"The Patent Steam Kitchen possess the Advantage of cooling in the most delicate manner, either by steam or by water, separately or conjointly, at one and the same time; and when combined with a roaster, and with or without a hot closet, will cook victuals, both roast and boiled, for from ten to fifty persons and upwards, with one small fire only, and that not larger than is necessary for the boiling of one small pot or kettle in the usual mode of cooking. The great savings of fuel bears but a small proportion to its other advantages, as there is a saving of one pound of meat in ten, and a superabundance of rich gravy prodced ... [It] forms, in a very small compass, the most compact, clean and best cooking apparatus in the world, for steaming, boiling, roasting, broiling, baking and stewing, in the highest perfection ..."The engravings depict both larger and smaller, portable models, all in various configurations, as well as many of the internal fittings and necessary pots and utensils. Winterthur notes copies with 18 leaves of plates (circa 1810) and 42 leaves of plates (1819).

        Autograph letter signed ("L. A. Chevallet").

      No place, [July 1810]. - 8vo. 3 pp. On bifolium with integral address panel. Curious letter to his sister Pauline Périer-Lagrange, written both in French and English, and three words in Italian. Stendhal needs money to live, and uses foreign languages and pseudonyms to prevent his letters from being intercepted. He confesses that his English is "execrable". The use of foreign languages, as well as nicknames, abbreviations and pseudonyms, is at the same time part of the strategy of disguise characteristic of "a man who wanted to" hide his life "but who keeps telling it to those who can read between the lines "(Stendhal and Europe, 135): " Pousse ferme the father, my dear sister, I am wanting of money [.] Tout ce que je désire, c'est le moyen de vivre ici jusqu' à la préfecture, ensuite, quarante journaux à Furonières pour aller vivre de mes laitues si, dans ma place, on m'ordonnait quelque chose d'opposé à mes principes [.] I fear that our relations have read my last letter to you. Take arrangements for making that impossible. I have three or four interessant things to say to you to day, but I dare not. The misinterpretations are easy and common. I am not quite satisfied with the humour of my brother, and Alph. had said to me very indifferent news. I believe you must take the gouvernail. He loves money and has good reason, but I believe you know better the ways of achieving that interprise than he. You have a sound and cool understanding, emploie cette faculté to your common happiness and the happiness of a man of thirty is in money or ambition.

        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" unfolded. It was sent from Sedam's farm near Bold Face Creek about three miles west of Cincinnati and is dated November 11, 1810. The cover is addressed to McHenry at Baltimore, Maryland. It has a manuscript Cincinnati postmark dated 19 Nov 1810. 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 the 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 traveled to the West Indies. However, it is certain that by 1800, Sedam had established a large farm just west of the then 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 with a rare early manuscript Cincinnati postmark from a noteworthy, but now all-but-forgotten, soldier who was instrumental in pacifying the Northwest Territory.

        Collection of 37 topographical and naval views.

      N. p., [1790s-1810s]. - Watercolour on paper, some on 2 sheets, mounted (sizes approximately from 75 x 198 to 325 x 430 mm), some with inscription or sketches on verso, most with captions either mounted, laid down or written directly on image. James Weir (d. 1820) was Captain of Marines on HMS Audacious from 1795 to 1800, and was also an accomplished watercolourist. Some of the earliest watercolours in this group were produced when the Audacious was on patrol off the Portuguese coast in 1796. Others were painted in the months leading up to the Battle of the Nile, when the Audacious was part of Nelson's squadron searching for the French fleet off the Italian coast after it had escaped from Toulon. He also depicted Nelson's flagship, HMS Vanguard, anchored at Naples Bay for repairs in October 1798, when he first met Emma Hamilton. Also shown are views of the Portuguese coast, Syracuse and surrounding area, Catania and Mount Etna, the interior of the Temple of Concord, the ruins of the Temple of Jupiter Olympus, the Valley of Temples at Agrigento, the Temple of Venus at Baia, Mount Nuovo and Pozzuoli near Naples. The fleet at Palermo is also depicted, where Nelson had accompanied the royal court of the Two Sicilies after they fled Naples. - Very minor scattered tears or repairs, a few restored or trimmed, light staining or spotting.

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.

Recent period-style calf, lettering piece and gilt-edge fillets to spine, endpapers added, early bookseller ticket on front pastedown retained. Light browning to text, light foxing to title page and a few other leaves, signature of Edward Delafield Smith dated July 27, 1861 to front endleaf. A handsome copy with an interesting association. $1,250. * 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. 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. Edward Delafield Smith [1826-1878] was the U.S. District Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 1861-1866 and Corporation Counsel for New York City from 1871-1875. He was a notable legal writer, poet and book collector. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 7166. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
