        Sketch of The Political History of India

      London - William Miller, 1811 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Rebound with leather spine andcloth covered boards. This is the second edition printed the same year as the first. Sir John Malcolm (May 2, 1769 - 1833) was a Scottish soldier, statesman, and historian, born at Burnfoot, Dumfriesshire on the 2nd of May, 1769. In 1782 Sir John Malcolm entered the service of the East India Company; and a part of his success is to be ascribed to the zeal with which he applied himself at first to study the manners and languages of the east. Having distinguished himself at the siege of Seringapatam in 1792, he was appointed by Lord Cornwallis to the situation of Persian interpreter to an English force serving with a native prince. In 1795, on his return from a short visit to his native country, on account of his health, he performed some useful services in General Clarkes expedition at the Cape of Good Hope, for which he received the thanks of the Madras government, and was appointed secretary to the commander-in-chief. He was employed in many important negotiations and held various distinguished posts, being Ambassador to Persia, Resident of Gwalior (1803-1804) and Governor of Bombay 1827-1830. He was the commander of the English Army which defeated the Holkars who ruled Indore at the Battle of Mahidpur in 1818. After defeating the Holkars he signed the Treaty of Mandsaur with them. It was under this treaty that the English were given the cantonment town of Mhow which is 23 km from Indore. He was the author of several valuable works regarded as authorities, viz. , A History of Persia (1815), Memoir of Central India (1823), Political History of India from 1784 to 1823 (1826), and Life of Lord Clive (1836). Condition: The binding is generallytight and firm and both covers are firmly attached. The cords are exposed in a couple of places. There is some mild wear to the extremities and the second spine label is detached but present. Internally the book has some spotting throughout, heavy in places, and the odd handling mark. There is a copperplate signature to the title page. Overall the book is in good/very good condition..

Zur Übermittlung eines Zeichens wurde vom Sender eine Spannung engelegt, die beim Empfänger an spezifischer Stelle einer mit Säure gefüllten Glassäule die Elektrolyse auslöste. Mithilfe einer Dechiffrierungsskala zeigten die dort erzeugten Gasblasen das übermittelte Zeichen an.

        Literary Life and Select Works of Benjamin Stillingfleet, several of which have never before been published,

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, LONDON 1811 - Works selected by William Coxe presented in 2 volumes (volume 2 has 2 parts), bound in one. Volume 1 covers his literary life; volume 2 his poems, dramas and sonnets and his natural history works. Benjamin Stillingfleet is believed to be the originator of the term 'blue stocking' - being invited by Elizabeth Montagu and Elizabeth Vesey to talk at their literary and discussion circle but being too poor to afford to wear the required black stockings to the event. it is suggested that his blue worsted stockings became his trademark - and then eventually the term for learned women. He studied at Cambridge and became tutor to William Windham, whom he accompanied on the Grand Tour, engaging in scientific exploration of Alpine glaciers. He wrote the first fundamental treatise in England advocating Linnaean principles in classifying plants and has a plant named after him: Stillingia sylvatica. He was apparently the librettist for oratorios by Handel's successor: John Christopher Smith. He was extremely well connected and, when after his death, he insisted that his works were burnt, William Coxe and others put together as many records as they could from private collections to commemorate him. The botanical works have additional observations from Professor Martyn and include a translation from Italian of 'The Irritability of Vegetables'; various works observing the calendar and when different species emerge during the year; observations on grasses; and on husbandry. The work on grasses has 16 hand coloured plates by J E Sowerby. Bound in full leather with gilt decoration to front board, and spine and raised bands to spine. All pages edges gilt. The leather has had an expensive and expert repair - relaying the boards and providing a new spine and is in excellent condition bar slight dark marking and scuffing. There is gilt decoration inside on the boards and marbled endpapers. The contents are in very good condition being clean with occasional brown spotting. The plates are not tissue guarded so have left some marks on opposing text pages. With a portrait of Stillingfleet as the frontispiece; portraits of Richard Aldworth Neville, William Windham and Robert Price; and 2 addtional black and white plates.

        Supreme Court Justice Livingston Recommends a Danish Son-in-Law of Jacob Astor to John Quincy Adams, on Duty in Russia

      New York 1811 - Autograph Letter Signed, to John Quincy Adams. New York, January 19, 1811. 1 p. Supreme Court Justice Brockholst Livingston recommends "Mr: Bentzon," a Danish official and son-in-law of John Jacob Astor, to John Quincy Adams, Minister to Russia. Docketed by John Quincy Adams. "He is since married into the family of Mr. Astor, one of our first & most respectable merchants, & is going with his Lady to Denmark . as Mr. Bentzon intends visiting Petersburgh he is desirous of doing himself the honor of calling on you ." Complete Transcript New York 19th Jany. 1811 -Sir Mr: Bentzon will have the honor of delivering you this letter. This gentleman is a subject of the King of Denmark, & resided for several years in Santa Cruz where he held an important office under his Sovereign. He is since married into the family of Mr. Astor, one of our first & most respectable merchants, & is going with his Lady to Denmark, in company with Mr. Erving and Minister to that court - as Mr. Bentzon intends visiting Petersburgh he is desirous of doing himself the honor of calling on you. I have therefore taken the liberty of recommending him to your attentions, not doubting that you will find him highly agreeable & intelligent. With great respect I have the honor to be Sir, Your most obed sert Brockholst LivingstonHis ExcyJ.Q. Adams[Address Leaf:] His Excellency - Jno: Quincey Adams - / Minister Plenipotentiary / &ca - Petersburgh - / Hond by - Mr. Bentzon[docket in Adams's hand:] Livingston - Brockholst 14 Jany: 1811 / 9 Augt: 1811. recd:Historical BackgroundWritten a year before the War of 1812, when John Quincy Adams was still Minister to Russia, Justice Livingston's letter recommends one "Mr: Bentzon," who intends visiting the Russian capital, to Adams's attention. The docket, indicating that the letter was received by Adams nearly seven months after Livingston had written it, gives a fascinating glimpse at the slow rate of communication in the early nineteenth century.Interestingly, just months before, President Madison nominated Adams to fill deceased Justice William Cushing's place on the Supreme Court, where he might have served with Livingston. Adams declined the appointment, citing his wife's health, in a letter to Madison of June 3, 1811. To his brother Thomas, however, Adams was more honest: "I am also, and always shall be, too much of a political partisan for a judge." Adams went on to perform sterling service in European diplomacy, helping to negotiate the Treaty of Ghent in late 1814, which ended the War of 1812. This rejuvenated his political prospects at home, where he soon rose to become Secretary of State and President.Perhaps unbeknownst to Livingston, Bentzon was traveling to Russia in large part on behalf of his new father-in-law, America's first millionaire, John Jacob Astor. Bentzon successfully obtained from Tsar Alexander the right for Astor's American Fur Company to trade in Russian territories in North America (Alaska) in exchange for a promise to supply Russian outposts and not to trade with Indians living near Russian settlements. Later, Bentzon was present at the negotiations in Ghent, ending the War of 1812, with John Quincy Adams, suggesting that a working relationship emerged from the meeting Livingston helped arrange.Adrian Bentzon was a citizen of Denmark and, for a time, governor of St. Croix.

Brown crushed morocco gilt extra by Sangorski and Sutcliffe (signed on lower rear turn-in), gilt edges; original blue printed pictorial stiff wrappers bound in, engraved vignette on back cover. Housed in a brown rounded spine splicase with chemise. Wrappers a little soiled, a very good copy. 8 hand-coloured plates. Without printed title-page and engraved sheet of music as often. First edition, the "surprize" issue (page 7, line 11). The title is printed on the front wrapper; the back wrapper has the cut depicting a scene from Homer, with the printed quotation beneath it. "There seems to be no positive proof that Lamb was the author of this little book . [but] as we know that Lamb was familiar with all the circumstances, and as he had written successful books for Godwin, and was not above such work, there seems ground for believing that Lamb was the actual author" (Roff). At least four copies of the "surprize" issue (including that in the British Library) are known without the title and folding sheet of music, suggesting that some copies were so issued. "Very rare in any condition" (Roff/Livingston pp. 113ff). Gumuchian 3589.
