        Woburn Sheepshearing. Dedicated by Permission to His Grace the Duke of Bedford. By His Grace's most obedient and very humble, George Garrard

      London: G. Garrard, 1811. In very good condition overall.. Original aquatint, stipple, etching and engraving; 540 x 800 mm., mounted. A large and most interesting image of the annual sheep shearing festival held by the Duke of Bedford at Woburn Abbey. This great agricultural show was started by Frances Russell (1763-1802) who established a model farm at Woburn with 'every convenience that could be desired for the breeding of cattle and experiments in farming'. This included valuable experiments upon the respective merits of the various breeds of sheep. The sheep shearing exhibitions lasted for days and the whole English agricultural world was invited to this splendid event and the week concluded with banquets for the Duke's numerous guests staying at Woburn Abbey. The scene shows an enormous crowd of noblemen, gentlemen, farmers, and agricultural labourers inspecting the numerous sheep and cattle whilst a sheep shearing contest is taking place in a pen on the right.This contest is being judged by an eminent circle including (as noted in the key): Arthur Young, Secretary to the Board of Agriculture, Sir John Sinclair, President of the Board of Agriculture, Sir Joseph Banks, Thomas Coke M.P., and others including Sir Humphry Davy.Sir Joseph Banks wearing a sash is shown in the middle of the judging panel in the lower left of the image, seated and holding a cane. The caption describes this scene "... two men shearing for a Prize in the foreground in the presence of the leading Members of the Board of Agriculture". Sir Joseph was the key figure in breeding merino sheep and in the introduction of this species into Australia. Not only was he the leading advocate for the establishment of the merino breed of sheep in England, he was in charge of the Royal flock of 500 sheep given to King George 111 by the Spanish Court. It is recorded that he sold off his own sheep on the Oaklands Estate, Lincolnshire to devote himself to the care and breeding of the merino and declared "merino sheep will in time be procured with carcasses perfectly fashionable and wool as perfectly fine..."The Australian sheep industry began when John Macarthur imported three rams and five ewes in 1797 on the advice of Sir Joseph.The artist of this fine image was George Garrard ARA (1760-1826), a pupil of the Cumbrian sporting artist Sawrey Gilpin. He specialised in depicting the improved breeds of farm animals of the Agricultural Revolution and was instrumental in the passing of a bill to secure copyright on sculptured and cast works of art. The caption states that this fine and large image is " stipple and outline etched by M.N. Bate, figures and landscape by J.C. Stadler, the whole touched and arranged by the original painter".

      bei Julius Ediard Hitzig, Berlin 1811 - VI, 202 S. Halblederband d.Zt. mit Rückenschild und –vergoldung, vergoldete Deckelfileten. Leder berieben, Ecken etwas bestoßen Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke VI,118,20). – Teils etwas stockfleckig. Modernes Exlibris a.d. Innendeckel. Rosafarbene Vorsätze. A.d. weißen Vorsatz ein zwölfzeiliger Eintrag, datiert „Prag am 15ten Okt. 1813“, unterschrieben „CARL und AUGUSTE V.MILTITZ“, a.d. Titelrückseite zeitgenöss. Stempel „Tetschner Bibliothek“ (vgl. No.1940). Ein bemerkenswertes Exemplar. Im ersten Brief FOUQUÉs an den späteren engen Freund schreibt er u.a.: „Ausserdem aber möchte ich Ihren Blick noch ganz besonders auf meine vaterländischen Schauspiele richten, die Ostern vorigen Jahres in Berlin bei HITZIG erschienen. Dort finden Sie meine Persönlichkeit recht aus dem Innersten ausgesprochen.“ (6.Febr.1812; zit. nach: O.E.Schmidt, Fouqué, Apel, Miltitz, Leipzig 1908, S.60). Aus dem Briefwechsel entwickelte sich eine intensive, wechelseitig anregende Freundschaft; MILTITZ vertonte Gedichte FOUQUÉs (u.a. in Dramatische Dichtungen, 1812) und trug Texte zu dessen Wunderbuch (1816) und verschiedenen Almanachen bei. Wie FOUQUÉ stammte „der männlich gerade“ (Arno Schmidt, Fouqué, S.196) CARL BORROMÄUS V. MILTITZ aus einer Familie mit militärischer Tradition. Bis 1810 diente er als Offizier in der sächs. Armee, verließ dann den Dienst und lebte mit seiner Frau AUGUSTE auf Burg Scharfenberg bei Meißen und 1813 in Dresden. Nach dem Sieg der Franzosen bei Groß-Görschen (2.Mai 1813) brachte MILTITZ seine Frau nach Karslbad in Böhmen in Sicherheit. „Er selbst fand ein Asyl im Schlosse Tetschen beim Grafen THUN , dessen Frau [THERESE] . mit AUGUSTE . in Wien . erzogen worden war.“ (O.E.Schmidt S.42). MILTITZ ging im Oktober nach Prag, wo er sich am 22. den österreichischen Truppen anschloss. Eine Woche zuvor, am Vorabend der „Völkerschlacht bei Leipzig“ (16. – 19.Okt. 1813) versah er das vorliegende Buch mit einer langen Widmung auch im Namen seiner Frau, „beyde FOUQUÉs Freunde“, und schenkte es der Gastgeberin, „ihnen geistig verwandt und lassen Sie sich von diesen dreyen, wie von Genien, umflügeln.“ [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A COMMENTARY AND REVIEW OF MONTESQUIEU'S SPIRIT OF LAWS. PREPARED FOR PRESS FROM THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT, IN THE HANDS OF THE PUBLISHER

      Philadelphia, 1811. Contemporary calf, rebacked with original spine laid down. Copley Library bookplate Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Light tanning and foxing. Very good. In an elaborate green half morocco slipcase. This is the first edition, and an edition in French did not appear until 1817. In his preface the author states that he wrote this work, in which he extols the superiority of the republican constitution of America over that of England, during his residence in America and, more important, that he wrote it for Americans, albeit in his native language for lack of sufficient skill in English. It also contains considerable discussion of economic policy. Thomas Jefferson revised the translation of the work from the French, and forwarded it on to the printer, William Duane.

        Dunbarton [sic] Castle, Scotland [actually Linlithgow Palace]

      1811. Hand-coloured aquatint, printed on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and two small brown stains in the top left and bottom margins respectively. Trimmed to platemark on three sides. A picturesque view of the majestic facade Linlithgow Palace of one of Scotland's Royal castles. This doubly mis-titled aquatint view actually shows the east facade of Linlithgow Palace, the ruins of which stand about fifteen miles from Edinburgh. Linlithgow was the birthplace of James V and Mary Queen of Scots. The palace was vacant of royalty after James VI left to become James I of Great Britain. In 1746, the Duke of Cumberland left the building in ruins. Not much is known about the London-based landscape painter and engraver J. R. Humble other than that he occasionally exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1803 and 1824 and contributed several aquatints to John Heaviside Clark's A Practical Essay in Painting Landscapes... (1807) and R. Ackermann's The History of Westminster (1812). Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire Des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , Vol. 6, p. 703; cf.

        Recueil factice de travaux de Saint-Hilaire sur la botanique, notamment sur les plantes du Brésil

      1811 - 16 mémoires en 1 volume in-8 , 1811-1840, , 16 mémoires en 1 volume in-8, demi-toile verte du milieu du XIXe siècle, Intéressante réunion de mémoires et plaquettes d'Auguste de Saint-Hilaire, ouvrant sur une Réponse aux reproches que les gens du monde font à l'étude de la botanique (1811, 30 pages), et parmi lesquels se trouvent 5 travaux rares sur la flore et la forêt du Brésil, publiés à la suite du voyage de Saint-Hilaire en Amérique du Sud entre 1816 et 1822, voyage duquel il ramena 24000 plantes, 2000 oiseaux, 16000 insectes, 135 quadrupèdes, de nombreux reptiles, poissons et minéraux (DSB, XII, p. 72). Auguste de Saint-Hilaire (1779-1853), explorateur et botaniste orléanais, fit un périple de plus de 9000 kilomètres à travers le Brésil et le Paraguay. Durant ce voyage, il étudia un nombre considérable d'espèces animales, végétales et minérales. A son retour en France, il entreprit trois importantes publications sur la flore brésilienne : l'Histoire des plantes les plus remarquables du Brésil et du Paraguay (en 1824), les Plantes usuelles des Brésiliens (1827-1828), et, surtout, une volumineuse Flora Brasiliae meridionalis (1825-1833) en collaboration avec Adrien de Jussieu et Jacques Cambessèdes. Outre ces publications, il publia de nombreux articles et mémoires sur son voyage dont, en tirés à part, les 5 mémoires suivants : - Description du Pelletiera, nouveau genre de plantes de la famille des Primulacées, recueilli dans le Brésil méridional et la province Cisplatine (lue le 31 janvier 1823), Paris, 1823, 2 pages ; - Mémoire sur le système d'agriculture adopté par les brésiliens, et les résultats qu'il a eus dans la Province de Minas Gereas, Paris, 1827, 12 pages ; - Tableau géographique de la végétation primitive dans la province de Minas Geraes, Paris, 1837, (2), 49 et (1) pages ; - L'île de Saint-François et la pêcherie d'Itapocoroia. Fragment de la partie inédite des Voyages de M. Saint-Hilaire, Paris, 1836, 39 et (1) pages ; - Monographie des primulacées et des lentibulariées du Brésil méridional et de la République Argentique, Orléans, 1840, (2), 48 et 2 planches. Ces articles isolés qui ne recoupent pas nécessairement les livres d'Histoire Naturelle et les description ethnographiques de Saint-Hilaire sur le Brésil enrichissent le vaste corpus bibliographique de notre auteur sur l'Amérique du Sud. En outre, Le Tableau géographique de 1837 est particulièrement intéressant puisqu'il s'agit d'un texte précoce de phytogéographie, ou géographie botanique, fondée autour des années 1810 par Humboldt, Candolle et Lamarck. En l’occurrence Saint-Hilaire développe une phytogéographie exotique. Enfin, en décrivant la végétation ancestrale de cette région du Brésil, donc la répartition de ses végétaux, Saint-Hilaire annonce, de manière prémonitoire, les méfaits de la déforestation liés à l'exploitation des terrains aurifères (changement de végétation, ravinement des terres, etc). Le compilateur à l'origine de ce recueil a fait relier, in fine, le Rapport verbal fait par Alexander von Humboldt (Tiré à part extrait des Annales des Science, 1824. 8 pages), au sujet des Plantes Usuelles des Brésiliens. DSB, XII, p. 72 ; voir aussi Blandin, The European Origins of Scientific Ecology (1800-1901), 1998, p. 17. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Broadside, begins: Sabed: que ha llegado á nuestras manos un proclama del rebelde Cura de Dolores que se titula: 'Manifiesto, que el Señor Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla::::,, [sic] haze al Pueblo.

      Mexico: no publisher/printer Folio (43.4 cm; 17.125"). [1] p.. 26 January 1811 Approximately two months prior to Father Hidalgo's capture by the Royal Forces, the Holy Office issued this decree condemning a publication of the Father of Mexican Independence as seditious, Lutheran, and anti-Catholic. Other writings circulating in manuscript are also condemned: One beginning, "Hemos llegado a la epoca" and ending, "De una Patriota de Lagos" and another beginning, "Es posible. Americanos!" and ending, "será gratificado con quinientos pesos." Copies of each were burned by the public executioner and all citizens are warned of the penalties — excommunication and fines — for owning or reading these writings, or failing to denounce those who do. Printed on two sheets precisely glued together to form a seamless whole, in double-column format and with the woodcut seal of the Inquisition in the lower right corner of the lower edge. Garritz located only the copy in the Biblioteca Nacional and WorldCat locates only seven U.S. institutions holding copies. Old folds; a few small wormholes touching or costing a very few letters and one larger hole costing five letters, but not impeding reading sense. Slight discoloration along the area where the two sheets are pasted together and at points on vertical fold.

        THE SHIPWRECK, A POEM

      Printed for William Miller by W. Bulmer, London 1811 - 197 x 121 mm (7 3/4 x 4 3/4"). 2 p.l., liii, [i], 215 pp. VERY PRETTY MID-19TH CENTURY GREEN STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, INTRICATELY DECORATED IN GILT AND BLIND, BY W. BARRATT (ticket on front flyleaf), covers with broad, densely gilt frame and central lozenge containing a large and elaborate floral centerpiece, raised bands, spine panels filled with gilt, purple watered silk endleaves framed by gilt rolls, all edges gilt. With three engraved plates and five engraved vignettes. Verso of front endleaf with early inscription: "The Bookbinder's Tribute of Gratitude to Benj. Morland" and with bookplate of Cass Canfield; presentation letter to Canfield from Austen Kark laid in. Spine uniformly sunned to olive brown, slight rubbing to corners, bands, and joints, muted spotting to silk, plates with minor foxing, a hint of browning at the edges of some leaves, but still an excellent copy, with none of the condition issues serious, and with the elaborately decorated covers lustrous and unworn. This is a doubly interesting presentation volume featuring an elaborately gilt binding and containing the popular poem by Falconer (1732-69), recounting the wreck of a ship on the coast of Greece. Written in three cantos, the work first appeared in 1762, with revised versions issued in 1764 and 1769, the year the author was drowned at sea, himself the victim of a shipwreck. Ramsden finds William Barratt in business at Lincoln's Inn Fields from 1837-66, at which time the business was taken over by William Henry Barratt, perhaps a son. The two Barratt bindings in the Ramsden Collection at the British Library are very simple, and show none of the exuberance of this special work. We do not know the identity of Benjamin Morland, to whom our binder expresses a debt of gratitude in his inscription, but we do know that presentations like this from binders of the period are very uncommon. As indicated by the enclosed letter, our volume became the vehicle for a second expression of gratitude, this time involving two well-known later figures: Austen Kark (1926-2002), a managing director of the BBC World Service, and Cass Canfield (1897-1986), who held top positions at Harper & Row for more than 35 years. Kark has sent the book to Canfield in "gratitude for [his] kindness and a delightful dinner party," at which Kark apparently acted badly, as he asks for forgiveness for having caused "pain [and] discomfort" during the occasion.

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb Folio (31 cm; 12.25"). 1 p.. July, 1811 July 5, 1811, is Venezuela's official independence day, following more than a year of wrangling and temporary measures following the deposing of the Captain General on 20 April 1810 and the establishment of a caretaker government that already styled itself as "independent" despite paying lip service to loyalty to Ferdinand VII. This document dates from immediately after July 5th, as internal evidence shows. Here the Junta Suprema explains what it sees to be the political reality of Spain's dissolution into non-nationhood under Napoleon and thereby justifies "Venezuela [having] entered now, Americanos, into the number of free nations of the Americas." Very Rare: This broadside was unknown to Medina. Grases located only the copies in the Public Record Office (London) and the Archivo de Indias (Seville). Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, and CCILA fail to find any copy at all. Further, no copies were found when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England: Evidently, this is the third known copy. As issued. Worming in foremargin; repaired. Pencilling in margins. A very good copy.

Es handelte sich bei der Garnier-Ausgabe um die bedeutendste und beste Übersetzung des 1776 erschienenen Grundlagenwerks ins Französische. Die Anmerkungen Garniers wurden ins Englische übersetzt und zuerst der 1805 erschienenen schottischen Ausgabe beigefügt. In der Folge wurde die Garnier-Ausgabe öfter nachgedruckt. Hier liegt eine solche schottische Nachdruckausgabe von 1811 vor. - Das wirkungsmächtigste wirtschaftstheoretische Werk, das im Jahre 1776 im englischen Original erschienen war. Smith`s (1723-90) \"grosser Fortschritt ... besteht darin, daß er sich von der Behauptung der Physiokraten über die mehrwertbildende Kraft der Natur freimacht und stattdessen die allgemein gesellschaftliche Arbeit, unabhängig von ihrer besonderen Form, als die einzige Quelle des Wertes anerkennt\" (Bräuer 109). \"Its remarkable success meant that it effectively defined the scope and content of political economy for later generations and was widely cited as an authority in favour of free market, ... but is much more than the unsubtle apologia for private enterprise that it has been made to seem, allowing as it does an important regulating function to government\" (Blaug 791).

        Consecutive Run of Early Louisiana Laws for the First Six Sessions of the Territorial Legislature, 1806 - 1811]

      New Orleans 1811 - Six volumes, Bound to style in half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Small ink library stamp to titlepages, embossed blind-stamp to two titlepages, occasional ink ownership signature, a couple of small paper repairs. An Important Run of the Earliest Published Laws of the American West A very desirable run of the session laws issued by the Orleans Territorial Legislature (with the volumes for the first and second session of each of the three legislatures present) between its formation, when it succeded the unelected Legislative Council, to the last session, after which Louisiana achieved statehood and ceased to be a Territory in 1812. All volumes printed in English and French on facing pages. The first imprint is the exceedingly rare 1806 first edition of the first session laws of the first legislature, which was subsequently reprinted the next year. It is almost never seen in the marketplace. In fact, all of these volumes are quite rare both institutionally and in the marketplace. In almost forty years, we've only ever offered three of the six imprints, not including the 1806 edition. The imprints included here are as follows: 1) By Authority. Acts Passed at the First Session of the First Legislature of the Territory of Orleans. New Orleans: Bradford & Anderson, 1806. ix, 221pp. Jumonville 131; McMurtrie (New Orleans) 89; Sabin 42183; Shaw & Shoemaker 11077. 2) Acts Passed at the Second Session of the First Legislature of the Territory of Orleans.

      Trenton, 1811. 12mo. Contemporary calf, spine gilt, gilt morocco label. Calf rubbed on spine, head of spine cracked. Lower 1 1/4 inches 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. Felcone records two issues printed in 1811.

        The History of New South Wales, from its First Discovery to the Present Time...; comprising an accurate and interesting Description of that Vast and Remarkable Country; and of the Persons, Manners, and Customs, of the Natives..

      Newcastle: Mackenzie and Dent, 1811. Octavo, two maps and three plates, printed on rather cheap paper which is consequently a little browned and with some offsetting; very good in polished brown morocco by Bayntun/Riviere. A very scarce book. This is the first issue: a later version gave the author's name on the title-page. Although appearing to be an early history of New South Wales, the earlier part is largely cribbed from Collins, and in fact the three engravings are all straight copies from that work. Other sections are taken from famous Australian works such as Tuckey, Mann, and other authors.The fact that the book was published in 1811 also means that the work was able to include some of the latest news and reports from the infamous "Rum Rebellion" trial of George Johnston, printed in a substantial appendix. The evidence presented at the court-martial, and included here, was the 'fullest, clearest and best substantiated account of the present state of the colony'.The four copies located by Ferguson were those in the prime Australian collections: Mitchell, Dixson, National Library of Australia, and his own collection.

The leading Anglo-American law dictionary of the eighteenth century, Jacob's New Law-Dictionary was first published in 1729. It went through several editions. Tomlins edited and substantially enlarged editions in 1797, 1809 and 1810. He also used Jacob's work as the basis of his own dictionary, which was published in 1811. In addition to definitions, Tomlins added citations to the vast number of statutes at large, term reports in the several courts, parliamentary reports and recent treatises and other sources that had been published since Jacob's death. The editions of Jacob by Tomlins and, for a brief time, Tomlins's own dictionary were standard works in the early 1800s. They were eventually supplanted in England by Wharton's Law Lexicon (1848) in Great Britain and Bouvier's Law Dictionary (1839) in the United States. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 5446.
