        Le statue e li bassirilievi inventati e scolpiti in marmo dal cavaliere Alberto Thorwaldsen scultore danese incisi e pubblicati da Ferdinando Mori. Tomo 1 [solo pubblicato]. Rami 80.

      - Roma, 1811 [i.e. anni '20 dell'800] in-folio, modesta leg. ottocentesca in mezza tela (consunzioni e mancanze), frontespizio inciso in rame + 80 incisioni calcografiche su 78 tavole: 10 sono incise dai fratelli Riepenhausen, 1 da Francesco Garzoli e le restanti da Ferdinando Mori (tranne 1 non firmata). Le tavole recano una numerazione che non corrisponde all'ordine col quale sono state legate nel volume. Pubblicazione dalla storia assai complicata: fu edita la prima volta nel 1811 (titolo inciso + 21 tavole); nel 1813 Mori acquistò i diritti della pubblicazione e l'opera crebbe, in tre edizioni successive, di 32, 54 e 67 tavole; finalmente, nel 1816, raggiunse il totale di 80 tavole. In ciascuna di queste successive edizioni fu mantenuto il primo front. inciso con la data 1811. Il nostro esemplare appartiene ad un edizione ancora successiva alla prima completa del 1816, poiché sul frontespizio - sempre inciso e sempre datato 1811 - non sono più citati i fratelli Riepenhausen (ma le loro incisioni sono mantenute all'interno del volume) ed è aggiunta la notazione di Tomo I, come se fossero previsti altri volumi (che tuttavia non uscirono). Libro molto raro, che documenta la produzione della bottega romana di Thorvaldsen, il più importante scultore neoclassico dopo Canova: segnalato in un solo esemplare in ICCU. Legatura modesta, ma interno ottimo. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He invented the "flying ambulance" for removing wounded soldiers from the battlefield, performed some of the first amputations at the hip-joint, gave the first descriptions of trench-foot and the therapeutic effects of maggots on wounds, and invented several surgical operations. 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).

Written in ink in a small, tidy, legible hand of the early nineteenth century. 92 ll., foliated by original scribe; tables and geometric diagrams within text. Folio (30.5 x 21 cm.), slightly later calf (still later front endleaves; joints very weak and worn, flat spine worn, some pitting to covers), covers with imperial arms of Brazil in center and blind-stamped borders of palmette and vine motifs. Minor ink blots.

        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]

      Trenton: Published by D. Fenton, . 1811 - 226pp. 12mo. Contemporary calf, spine gilt, gilt morocco label. Calf rubbed on spine, head of spine cracked. Lower 1 1/4 inch of pp.59/60 torn away, with a total loss of three lines of text on each page. Foxing. A good copy. A remarkable picaresque history, with many travels through the South between 1800 and 1808. Born in Germany in 1781, Oehler claimed he arrived in Baltimore in 1800 as a bound tailor; escaped to become a dancing master in Alexandria and then a fencing master in Port Tobacco, Maryland; then went to Santo Domingo, where he says he served with Toussaint; Egypt; China; Charleston, South Carolina, in 1802; then Columbia, Augusta, and Nashville. In 1805 and 1806 he experimented with ballooning in Nashville and Natchez (an ad in a Natchez newspaper for 1806 corroborates this part of the sometimes incredible tale). In New Orleans he claims to have learned "Legerdemain," by which he paid his debts, but which got him thrown in jail in Mexico. He gives a long account of his sojourn, in and out of jail, in Mexico. Returning to the U.S., he made two trading expeditions to the west of the Mississippi, one to Natchitoches in 1807. He returned overland to Georgia in 1808, and later settled in New Jersey.

        The Arte of English Poesie

      London - Robert Triphook, 1811 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. This is a very smart copy of this important and hard-to-find work. Bound in the original calf, with a later reback and new endpapers. Very scarce. First published in 1589, and not reprinted until this 1811 edition. (No other editions are catalogued between 1589 and 1811 in the academic libraries of the UK). George Puttenham&#39;s (1529-1590) critique of what makes great poetry was written at the start of the Golden Age of English Poetry. It discusses the various forms of verse and the rival merits of metrical and non-metrical form, without deciding between them. Itis one of the two most important critical works of the Elizabethan period. The first section contains a general history of the art of poetry, and a discussion of the various forms of poetry; the second treats of prosody, dealing in turn with the measures in use in English verse, the caesura, punctuation, rhyme, accent, cadence, proportion in figure, which the author illustrates by geometrical diagrams, and the proposed innovations of English quantitative verse; the section on ornament deals with style, the distinctions between written and spoken language, the figures of speech; and the author closes with lengthy observations on good manners. He deprecates the use of archaisms, and although he allows that the purer Saxon speech is spoken beyond the Trent, he advises the English writer to take as his model the usual speech of the court, of London and the home counties. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with the boards securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities includingsome marks and some rubbing. Internally, the pages are generally cleanand bright. There is a neat signature at the top of the front freeendpaper and a discreet stamp to the verso of the title page, that reads Boston Atheneum. Overall, the condition of this volume is very good..

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Windischmann").

      Aschaffenburg, 7. IV. 1811. - 1 S. 4to. An den namentlich nicht genannten Altphilologen und Redakteur der "Jenaischen allgemeinen Literaturzeitung" Heinrich Karl Abraham Eichstädt (1771-1848) betr. seiner Rezension von Goethes "Farbenlehre": "Euer Wohlgeboren haben nun seit dem November vor[igen] Jahr[es] die Rez[ension] der Göthischen Farbenlehre von mir in Handen. Ich hatte Ihnen im Übersendungsbriefe bemerkt, daß, wenn Sie etwas auszusetzen fänden, Sie mir dieselbe sogleich wieder zurücksenden sollten, weil ich keinen fremden Eingrif[f] in meine Arbeit dulden, sondern wo es nothwendig, selbst nachhelfen will. Ich muß also annehmen, daß diese Arbeit keinen weiteren Bedenklichkeiten ausgesetzt war und nehme mir deshalb die Freiheit Sie zu fragen, woher nun noch die Verzögerung des Abdrucks komme [.]". - Windischmanns ausgesprochen positive Rezension sollte mit gehöriger Verzögerung erst im Januar 1813 erscheinen. - C. J. H. Windischmann wirkte seit 1818 als Professor der Philosophie an der damals neugegründeten Universität Bonn und lehrte auch Enzyklopädie und Geschichte der Medizin an der Medizinischen Fakultät. "In seinen Publikationen behandelte er medizinische, naturphilosophische und philosophische Themen; 1804 erschien von ihm eine Übersetzung des 'Timaios' von Platon. Im romantischen Geist der Zeit verstand Windischmann die historische Betrachtung zugleich als Gegenwartsanalyse und Zukunftsprognose [.] und setzte sich für eine Verbindung der Medizin mit der Philosophie und Theologie ein" (DBE). - Mit einigen zeitgen. Bemerkungen und Notizen von anderen Händen.
