        FORMS OF CONVEYANCING; AND OF PRACTICE, IN VARIOUS COURTS, AND PUBLIC OFFICES. Volume II (only) of two volumes

      Harrisburgh, PA: John Wyeth, 1811. First Edition. Hardcover. Light to moderate foxing throughout. Very Good. Octavo (5" x 8-1/4") bound in contemporary calf leather recently rebacked retaining the original spine and gilt-stamped burgundy morocco spine label. The second volume of two, but this copy belonged to President James Buchanan and is SIGNED by him, clearly and darkly, on top of the title page. Books signed by Buchanan are hard to come by. Buchanan is the only president from Pennsylvania and the only president who remained a lifelong bachelor. Much speculation has been made about Buchanan's sexual orientation based largely on his close and intimate relationship with William Rufus King (who became Vice President under Franklin Pierce). The two men lived together for 13 years from 1840 until King's death in 1853. They attended events together and were both said to have "effeminate" manners. Contemporaries noted their close connection. Andrew Jackson dubbed them "Miss Nancy" and "Aunt Fancy." The two men's nieces destroyed most of their uncles' correspondence after their deaths.

Minor foxing, small inkstain on lower edge, but very good. Bookplate. </p><p>Third and Best Edition, the first with the plates both engraved or drawn by Charles Bell. In his preface Bell disavowed the earlier editions, stating that the engraver of the plates for those editions had misinterpreted his ideas. The third edition&#146;s plates are much more realistic and accurate in anatomical detail than those in the earlier editions. There are two &#147;third editions&#148; of this work, one dated 1810 containing 33 pages and 11 plates, and the present 1811 edition containing 55 pages and 14 plates is the best of all the editions. The additional text in this edition includes Bell&#146;s &#147;introduction of some rules for cutting down upon the arteries, in cases of dangerous bleedings&#148; (Preface to 3rd edition). </p>

        Afbeeldingen van de Kleedingen, Zeden en Gewoonten in Holland, Met Den Aanvang Der Negentiende Eeuw.

      Chez E. Maaskamp, Amsterdam 1811 - With 21 hand-colored plates watermarked from 1803 and 1811 (mostly the latter) with the names of Maaskamp and Colnaghi & Co. of London. Plates engraved by Portman after paintings of J. Kuyper. Colas 1681. Hiler 557. The plates stand out among so many others of the same era for their depiction of people doing things. These are truly genre scenes, as opposed to static costume poses, and they thus deliver visual information about aspects of the livelihood,custom and culture of the Dutch, as intended by the book's title, which translates as "Representations of the Costume, Morals and Customs of Holland in the Early 19th Century". While there is some scattered light foxing in the book, the plates themselves are for the most part exceptionally bright and clean. A few leaves have a tight crease now flattened -- the one plate that this affects it does so de minimus-ly and is scarcely worth comment. The full calf has shelfwear evident in the corners and some other scuff marks, with a small strip of surface leather lifted on the rear board. The front gutter shows past separation which now remedied but the crack visually remains apparent the whole way down, with some spots of raw leather showing along this line. Nonetheless the leather remains quite attractive and the defect remaining worth tolerating. But for this flaw the book might be described as fine.

He was also the first to observe the contagiousness of trachoma, a disease encountered by Napoleon&#39;s army shortly after its successful invasion of Egypt in 1798. </p>

        A Report of the Case of the King Against Bebb... Bankrupts

      1811. Interesting Treatise on Tax Indebtedness Hughes, T.B. A Report of the Case of the King Against Bebb and Others. Assignees of Castell and Powell, Bankrupts; On an Extent: With Explanatory Notes and an Appendix of Some Cases and Records in Extents Which Have Not Been Before Printed. London: Printed by A. Strahan, 1811. vi, 244 pp. Octavo (8" x 5"). Contemporary calf, blind fillets to boards, lettering piece and blind fillets to spine. Light rubbing, front hinge starting. Offsetting to margins of endleaves, toning to text, internally clean. A well-preserved copy of a scarce title. * Only edition. Abolished in 1947, a writ of extent was a remedy employed by the crown to recover unpaid taxes from a debtor or bankrupt. This book, a combination of treatise and report, examines the nature of these writs through a scholarly account, with notes and a historical appendix, of the important Exchequer case of John Bebb and others, assignees of the bankrupt London banking house of Castell and Powell. Bebb and others, assignees of Castell and Powell, were countersued by the government for the right to assets that would cover payment of bills of exchange drawn by a Newcastle bank against tax-collection funds they were holding on deposit. The drafts had been accepted by the now bankrupt Castell and Powell, who had turned them over to the commissioners of excise as collateral for the Newcastle tax deposits, payable in thirty days. At issue was the right of the Crown to sue a debtor (Castell and Powell) of a tax-owing debtor (the Newcastle bank). Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 2:175.

        Let every Federalist do his Duty, and Massachusetts will yet be Saved!"

      Boston 1811 - Broadside. Boston, April, 1811. Untrimmed with wide margins. At bottom, prints resolutions of a public meeting at Faneuil Hall on March 31, 1811, which threatened resistance against Congress's May, 1810 legislation. With docketing on verso. 1 p., 11 3/4 x 18 3/8 in. Fiery election broadside fanning the flames of Federalist opposition to Democratic-Republican foreign policy during the Jefferson and Madison administrations. In tone if not in substance, this jeremiad against Southern planters is not wholly different from the complaints of Southern fire-eaters against Lincoln and the "black Republicans" 50 years later. It shows the intensity of New England sectionalism a year before "Mr. Madison's War." "The Embargo cost you millions and millions of dollars. It sunk all the property in New England twenty per cent. It ruined and crippled thousands forever. It drove your sailors into foreign employ . You have been robbed of this treasure by Thomas Jefferson." Excerpts"YOU have lost the election of governor. You have elected but nineteen federal Senators. YET YOU ARE THE MAJORITY. You heed not the things which concern your peace, your property, your freedom. plans are laid to take from you the use of the ocean. You are soon to have no commerce but on the land; no fisheries but in your rivers, and ponds. You now obey the commands of the enemy of the human race, BONAPARTE; these commands are sent to you through the proud, tyrannical slave holding PLANTERS of your Southern States Would war, would the loss of your commerce, the loss of your liberties be evils to you? These are at hand. Will you LISTEN? Will you THINK? Will you ACT? .""The policy of your present rulers is that of Jefferson. The planters of the South own SLAVES but no SHIPS. Jefferson spoke the creed of the planters . Jefferson, and his followers are ever sheding tears over the abuses of our neutral rights, the injuries to our commerce, and the wrongs of our sailors. This is to cajole such men as the republicans (as they call themselves) send to Congress, and to blind and cheat their Northern friends. A settlement of our differences with England would have benefited commerce. A treaty was made, but rejected by Jefferson, without ever showing it to Congress. Since that, THREE MINISTERS have been sent to America; but the breach between the United States and England grows wider and wider . The Embargo cost you millions and millions of dollars. It sunk all the property in New England twenty per cent. It ruined and crippled thousands forever. It drove your sailors into foreign employ. . You have been robbed of this treasure by Thomas Jefferson .""On the second of November, Mr. Madison proclaimed, that the French decrees were repealed. THEY WERE NOT THEN, NOR ARE THEY NOW REPEALED. With one single exception, every American ship, that has gone to France, and every one met upon the ocean by French cruizers, have been SEIZED, PLUNDERED, SUNK or BURNT! Mr. MADISON knows all this, and what has he done? ."[docketing on verso in unknown hand:] Morgan Esqr So Brins's[?] [This docket is the subject of ongoing research by our staff.]Historical BackgroundThomas Jefferson won a landslide reelection victory in 1804, defeating Federalist Charles Cotesworth Pinckney 162-14 in the electoral college. However, thanks in large part to the renewal of war between France and Britain in Europe, Jefferson's second term in office was stormy, and less successful, than his first. By 1806, both France and Britain had imposed blockades on the other country. Britain, the stronger sea power, began to seize American cargos suspected of trading with France, and also stepped up its practice of impressment, forcing into service roughly 6,000 American sailors in 1806-1807, on the pretense that they were British deserters. Jefferson and Madison, his Secretary of State, responded with the Embargo of 1807, a ban on all American vessels sailing for foreign ports. (See website for full description)

"The &#145;Guide to the Icelandic or old Nordic Language&#146; was the first of an important series of publications which qualify Rask as one of the founders of the modern science of language. The interest that his writings aroused in the ancient Scandanavian Tongues directed attention to their literature, He was the first to study the ancient Nordic languages systematically. He disovered the correspondence of the consonant relations between the Indo-European languages, which led Jacob Grimm to formulate the rules underlying the Germanic as well as the the first complete texts of the eddas of Snorri and Saemund and added modernised versions. During his journeys to Russia and Persia he collected valuable Avesta and Pali manuscripts which he gave to the Royal Library in Copenhagen of which he was the librarian, and thereby promoted the study of the Asian branches of the Indo-European family fo languages" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        INSTRUCCIÓN CRIMINAL SEGUIDA CONTRA VARIOS INDIOS COMPLICADOS EN LA REVOLUCIÓN Y LEVANTAMIENTO DE TIQUINA.

      1811 1811 - . 32 cm. Aprox. 50 fol. escritos en recto y verso. Enc. en media piel. Sobre papel sellado. * Presentamos la causa seguida contra 30 indios implicados en el levantamiento de Tiquina, relacionado con la abolición del tributo indígena. Este interesante documento revela no sólo la identidad de los presos que se encontraban en el calabozo sino los cargos de los que se les acusa &#150;a alguno se le atribuye un asesinato y otros son prófugos de la obra del obispo o del trabajo del empedrado&#150;, así como sus respectivas declaraciones. El capítulo titulado "La participación indígena en la rebelión de los Angulo y Pumacahua, 1814-1816" en Conquista y resistencia en la historia de América, Universitat de Barcelona, 1992, pág. 278-279 de Núria Sala nos permite contextualizar el conflicto: "Los revolucionarios paceños intentaron extender su movimiento hacia la otra línea de Desaguadero, tomaron Tiquina, pueblo del partido de Omasuyos, aunque comunidad lupaqa urinsaya, y Yunguyo con el objetivo de avanzar desde Chucuito hacia el Bajo Perú. Tadeo Garate, diputado por Puno a las Cortes de Cádiz, escribió que entonces sólo pudieron ser derrotados al ordenar el general Goyeneche que se estableciera un destacamento en Tiquina y su incorporación transitoria al partido de Chucuito. El 25 de mayo de 1811 en el acto de Tihuanaco conmemorativo de la revolución rioplateña de mayo, Castelli abolió el tributo y demás cargas indígenas, dispuso el reparto de tierras, el libre acceso a todos los cargos públicos y la creación de escuelas. Su impacto en la población indígena bajoperuana fue tal que se expandió el rumor hasta los confines del valle del Mantaro de que se aproximaba el inca Castelli a liberarlos del tributo. El levantamiento mayoritariamente indígena de La Paz del 24 de junio de 1811 se saldó con el ataque a vecinos blancos, de origen hispano en su mayoría, y el asesinato del marqués de San Felipe y Diego Quin." Y sigue: "Al igual que en 1809, en 1811 se repitieron los enfrentamientos en Tiquina. Las comunidades aledañas, -Camachi, Chichacuo.- vencieron y asesinaron en sendas refriegas al capitán de milicias Andrés Loza junto a 36 soldados y al sargento Yepes abortando su intento de reconquistar Omasuyos. La acción estuvo coordinada con las tropas indígenas de Cáceres ya que de los dos cañones capturados, uno fue destinado a Chura o al pueblo de Guarina y el otro, junto con los fusiles, a Aconamaya en el partido de Omasuyos donde se hallaban acampados más de 3.000 indios insurgentes. Varios testigos coincidieron en que el leit motiv del conflicto fue la abolición del tributo. [.] La adhesión de las comunidades se logró por diversos métodos, tales como el envío de proclamas, cuyo contenido en el caso de Tiquina era que "se habían quitado los tributos a consecuencia de una orden que venía de Buenos Aires". Quien con toda seguridad era Cáceres, reunió a las comunidades ribereñas y les dijo que los tributos y demás cargas estaban abolidos como también depuesta toda autoridad colonial, "ya que todo estaba vencido" y por tanto no debían aguardar más tiempo y debían levantarse "pues el designio era de avanzar a Puno y lo más que pudieran".

        Letter Dispensing with Production of Log Books at the Navy Office, 23 July 1811

      1811, 1811 - (Nautical - Newfoundland - Documents). A Letter Dispensing with Production of Log Books at the Navy Office, 23 July 1811. A printed form letter signed by John Wilson Croker, on behalf of Admiral Sir John Thomas Duckworth, then Governor of Newfoundland, reading thus: Admiralty Office, 23 July 1811 Sir, I am commanded by my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty to signify their direction to you to distribute the accompanying circular Letters, dispens- ing with the production of Log Books by the Cap- tains at the Navy Office, to the Captains and Commanders of His Majesty's Ships and Vessels under your orders. I am, Sir, Your most obedient, Humble Servant, J. W. Croker Admiral Sir John Tho. Duckworth [.] Admiral Sir John Thomas Duckworth (1748-1817), born in Leatherhead, England, had a long and illustrious naval career, joining the Royal Navy at the age of eleven and moving through the ranks, becoming a lieutenant in 1771, captain in 1780 and in 1793 commander of the Orion, a vessel carrying 74 guns. In 1800 he captured a rich Spanish convoy off the coast of Cadiz, and was knighted the following year. On 26 March 1810, Duckworth was appointed commander-in-chief and Governor of Newfoundland, in addition to being promoted to a full admiral. He was known for his efforts to improve the colony's educational and judicial systems, in addition to providing some protection for the Beothuk, offering a reward to anyone making peaceful contact with them. Duckworth left Newfoundland in October 1812 and became a member of parliament for New Romney in Great Britain. John Wilson Croker (1780-1857) was an Irish politician, administrator and commentator, who served as First Secretary to the Admiralty from 1810-1830. The text of the letter is type-set, while the date and Admiral's name to the lower left of the text are in the hand of John Croker. Presented in a black 16" by 20" frame, the letter itself measures 15 5/8" by 12 1/2", folded four times, dividing the sheet into eight sections. On the second section to the left of the letter, Croker has written: Admiralty 23 July 1812 (changed to 1811 by Croker) Dispensing with production of Log Books at the Navy Office. When folded correctly, this information would appear on the front, identifying the purpose of the letter to the intended receiver. The letter has been matted and framed using quality archival methods, by Spurrello Gallery of St. John's, Newfoundland. With the exception of two small foxed spots and a minor light grey smudge beside the signature, this letter is a fine example of early nineteenth century Newfoundland ephemera. 1,000.00 [Attributes: Signed Copy]
