        Rasgos sueltos para la Constitucion de América, anunciados por el Intendente de Exercito .

      Cadiz, En la Imprenta de la Junta Superior, 30 April 1811. - 4°, contemporary plain blue-gray wrappers. Single horizontal fold. A few contemporary notes in margins. Overall in fine condition. 16 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. While the famous Spanish constitution of 1812 was being written, Gonzalez y Montoya published these suggestions for constitutional provisions that would benefit the American colonies. Gonzalez y Montoya had governed the province of Puno (Peru) for five years and traveled in Canada, the United States, Brazil and the Spanish Main for five more years. He argues that the Spanish colonies in America do not desire freedom from Spain and will be happy to remain linked to Spain if the right measures are written into the Constitution. He suggests that the Indies have their own @Cortes and a separate @Consejo, and that there be radical changes in the @Audiencias. The clergy must be reformed and limits set to their salaries ("los mas eclesiásticos de América son mui ricos, mui idiotas y mui tiranos, especialmente en el Perú ?" p. 13).*** Palau 105563. Not in Sabin. NUC: DLC, MH. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. With a life of the author. Also, a view of the doctrine of Smith, compared with that of the French economists; with a method of facilitating the study of his works; from the French of M. Garnier.

      Edinburgh, printed for Silvester, Doig and Andrew Stirling, 1811. 3 Bde. 8vo. LXIII, 360; VI, 512; IV, 448 S., 26 Bll. (Index). Neue Pappbände. 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).

        [Text begins:] AMERICANOS. EL ORDEN POLITICO DEL OTRO HEMISFERIO HA REDUCIDO LA ESPAÑA Á SER VICTIMA DE LA PERFIDIO Y OORESION Y ESTE PUEBLO GENEROSO CONDUCIDO DE UNO EN OTRO INFORTUNIO VA YA Á SER BORRADO DEL CATALOGO DE LAS NACIONES

      Caracas, 1811. Slight worming in foremargin, repaired. A very good copy. July 5, 1811 is Venezuela's official independence day, following more than a year of wrangling and temporary measures after the deposing of the Captain General on April 20, 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 perceives as 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." This is the third known copy. Grases locates only the copies in the Public Record Office (London) and the Archivo de Indias (Seville). Searches of NUC and OCLC fail to find any copy at all. Furthermore, no copies were found when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England. An exciting proclamation at the beginning of Venezuelan independence.

        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.

        THE LIFE, ADVENTURES, AND UNPARALLELED SUFFERINGS OF ANDREW OEHLER: CONTAINING AN ACCOUNT OF HIS TRAVELS THROUGH FRANCE, ITALY, THE EAST AND WEST INDIES, AND PART OF THE UNITED STATES; HIS IMPRISONMENT IN FRANCE, GERMANY AND SPAIN: AND THE LATITUDE, SOIL, CLIMATE, PRODUCTIONS, MANNERS AND CUSTOMS OF THE DIFFERENT COUNTRIES

      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.

Moderate toning and occasional light foxing to text, early owner signature (J.W. Scott) to title pages. Ex-library. Bookplates and card pockets to pastedowns. Volumes housed in two lightly shelfworn slipcases. A nice copy of an uncommon set. * First American edition, from the second Tomlins edition, 1809. 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.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. 3 Bände (komplett). With a life of the author.

      London: Printed for Maynard; an F. Zinke; 1811. 22,5 cm. lxxi, 360; vi, 512; vi, 448 S., Index. Ohldr. Kanten bestossen und beschabt. Rückengelenke etw. angeplatzt. Vorsätze schwach stockfleckig. Sehr vereinzelt etw. stock- bzw. braunfleckig und mit angerandetem Schnitt. Sonst keine Mängel. Die erste Ausgabe des bedeutenden ökonomischen Werkes, an dem Smith zehn Jahre lang schrieb, erschien 1776 in zwei Bänden. - In einem Aufsatz in dem Buch \"Printing and the Mind of Man\" (1967; deutscher Titel: Bücher die die Welt verändern, 1968 bei Prestel) heißt es dazu: \"Die Geschichte der Nationalökonomie bis zum Ende des 19.Jahrhunderts besteht aus zwei Abschnitten: der merkantilistischen Phase, die weniger auf einer Doktrin beruht als auf einem System der Praxis, das sich aus den sozialen Verhältnissen ergab, und der zweiten Phase, welche die Lehre sich entwickeln sah, daß der Einzelmensch das Recht habe, in der Ausübung seiner wirtschaftlichen Tätigkeit nicht behindert zu werden. Man kann zwar nicht sagen, Smith habe diese Lehre erfunden - die Physiokraten hatten bereits darauf hingewiesen und Turgot im besonderen hatte eine durchgearbeitete Studie des gesellschaftlichen Wohlstandes entworfen -, doch ist sein Werk die erste wirkliche Ausführung dieser Theorie. Er beginnt mit dem Gedanken, daß die Arbeit die Quelle ist, aus der das Volk das bezieht, was es braucht. Die Verbesserung der Arbeitsteilung ist das Maß der Produktivität, und in ihr wurzelt der Hang des Menschen zum Tauschhandel: `Arbeit ist das wirkliche Maß des Tauschwerts aller Waren ... sie ist ihr wirklicher Preis; das Geld ist nur ihr nomineller Preis`. Die drei wesentlichen Elemente der Arbeit und so auch des Preises sind Lohn, Unternehmergewinn und Grundrente, und diese drei schaffen auch die Einkommen. Vom Wirken der Wirtschaft wendet sich Smith ihrem Ergebnis zu, dem `Stock` oder Warenbestand, der alles umfaßt, was der Mensch entweder für seinen Eigengebrauch oder um des Ertrags willen besitzt, den es ihm bringt. `Der Wohlstand der Nationen` schließt mit einer Geschichte der Wirtschaftsentwickklung, einem scharfen Angriff auf das Merkantilsystem und einigen prophetischen Überlegungen über die Grenzen der Wirtschaftskontrolle. Während die Erforschung der politischen Aspekte der Menschenrechte zwei Jahrhunderte in Anspruch genommen hatte, bestand Smiths Leistung darin, daß er die Untersuchung der wirtschaftlichen Aspekte in einem einzigen Werk bis zum gleichen Punkte vortrieb. Sein `Wohlstand der Nationen` stellt kein System dar, aber als vorläufige Analyse ist das Werk völlig überzeugend. Die Sicherheit seiner Kritik und sein Verständnis der menschlichen Natur haben es zum ersten und zum bedeutendsten unter den klassischen Werken der modernen Volkswirtschaftslehre gemacht.\" - Als Beilage dazu: Horst Claus Recktenwald: Adam Smith - Sein Leben und sein Werk.

        CONSECUTIVE RUN OF EARLY LOUISIANA LAWS FOR THE FIRST SIX SESSIONS OF THE TERRITORIAL LEGISLATURE, 1806 - 1811].

      New Orleans. 1806-1811. - Six volumes, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Antique style 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. Overall a very good set. 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.

Herr Hofrath Rehmann hat ihn unterm 8. Jun. durch einen Reisenden abgeschickt, der erst vor einigen Tagen hier angekommen seyn soll und mir ihn durch die dritte Hand zugestellt hat. So geht es gewöhnlich mit den Reisenden! Ich gebe alle meine Briefe, an deren baldiger Bestellung mir etwas liegt, gerade auf die Post. Hätte ich Ihren Brief zu Anfang des Junis erhalten, so würden Sie den verlangten Schädel schon vielleicht in Ihren Händen haben. Vielleicht läßt es sich doch noch damit machen. Schreiben Sie mir mit umgehender Post, ob Sie ihn noch zum Krusensternschen Atlas brauchen können, wenn Sie ihn am Ende des Septembers oder in den ersten Tagen des Oktobers erhalten können? Ich will in diesem Fall sogleich nach Berlin schreiben, und ihn von da mit der Post auf meine Kosten nach Königsberg oder Memel kommen lassen, von wo aus er Ihnen nach St. Petersburg direct geschickt werden soll. Am sichersten würde es wol seyn, wenn er in Memel an die Akademie der Wissenschaften zu St. Pt. adressirt werden könnte. Sprechen Sie darüber mit dem Herrn EtatsRath von Schubert, und geben Sie mir in dem Fall, daß mein Vorschlag ausführbar ist, genau die Adresse an, welche auf das Päckchen zu setzen ist. - Die Einlage empfehle ich Ihnen zu baldiger Beförderung.

        Eduard BENDEMANN (1811 Berlin-Düsseldorf 1889), Porträt Fabio Fabrucci,Bleistift

      - Eduard BENDEMANN (1811 Berlin-Düsseldorf 1889), Porträt Fabio Fabrucci, Bleistift -- Technik: -- Bleistift und Weißhöhung auf Papier, unten rechts bezeichnet: "Jugendzeichnung von Eduard Bendemann in Dresden. Ricordati di Fabio Fabrucci", verso Sammlungsstempel Johann Georg von Sachsen. -- Maße: -- 21,5 x 15,7 cm -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt sehr gut, in den vier Ecken mit je einem winzigen Nadelloch. Das Bleiweiss teilweise leicht oxidiert. -- Beschreibung: -- Das Talent von Eduard Bendemann wurde bereits in seiner Kindheit entdeckt. Wilhelm von Schadow, ein häufiger Gast im Hause seines Vaters, war sein erster Lehrer. Als Peter von Cornelius das Direktorat der Düsseldorfer Akademie aufgab und Schadow zu seinem Nachfolger ernannt wurde, folgte ihm der kaum 16-jährige Bendemann zusammen mit sechs weiteren Schülern nach Düssel-dorf. Dort wurde er zu einem wichtigen Vertreter der Düsseldorfer Malerschule. 1832 stellte er in der Berliner Akademie sein Gemälde "Die trauenden Juden im Exil" aus, das zum Grundstein seines Ruhms als Historienmaler wurde. Nicht weniger bedeutend in seinem OOeuvre war die Porträtmalerei. Hier stand er unter dem Einfluss seines Lehrers Schadow, der Bildnisse als wichtige Schulung für ein genaues Studium der Natur verstand. Ausgerechnet die 1830 entstandene Porträtstudie von Schadow, die ihn schonungslos lebensmüde zeigt, beweist, wie sehr sich Bendemann dessen Lehre zu Eigen gemacht hat. Einige Zeit zuvor zeichnete Bendemann in diesem Blatt vermutlich seinen Italienisch-Lehrer Fabio Fabrucci, der später zum Professor der italienischen Sprache an der Berliner Universität ernannt wurde. Höchstwahrscheinlich nahm der Künstler bei ihm einige Unterrichtsstunden als Vorbereitung für seine erste Italien-Studienreise, die er 1829 an der Seite Schadows absolvierte. Zwar ist die Zeichnung lediglich eine kleine Skizze zur Erinnerung, zeigt aber, mit welcher Konzentration der junge Bendemann (er dürfte damals nicht älter als 18 Jahre gewesen sein) an der realistischen Wiedergabe des Porträtierten arbeitete. Der scharfe, auf den Betrachter fixierte Blick, und der zusammengepresste Mund als Zeichen besonderer Achtsamkeit, verdeutlichen die Auffassung Bendemanns über die Rolle des Porträts als Spiegelbild des Charakters: eine Einstellung, die sich im Laufe seiner künstlerischen Entwicklung nie ändern sollte. --

        EXPLORATORY TRAVELS THROUGH THE WESTERN TERRITORIES OF NORTH AMERICA: COMPRISING A VOYAGE FROM ST. LOUIS, ON THE MISSISSIPPI, TO THE SOURCE OF THAT RIVER, AND A JOURNEY THROUGH THE INTERIOR OF LOUISIANA, AND THE NORTH-EASTERN PROVINCES OF NEW SPAIN. PERFORMED IN THE YEARS 1805, 1806, 1807

      London, 1811. Half title. Quarto. Contemporary sheep, spine gilt, marbled endpapers and edges. Boards a bit scuffed and stained, joints worn. Later bookplate on front pastedown. Light foxing and minor offsetting to maps and facing pages, else internally clean. Very good. Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand's copy, with his library stamp on the verso of the front free endpaper reading: "Bibliotheque de Valençay." Talleyrand, one of the great survivors of French history, managed to navigate his way from being a bishop prior to the French Revolution, serve as a minister and close advisor to Napoleon, aid in deposing him, and serve again as a key minister of the restored Royal government. His cynical brand of power politics make him one of the most interesting figures of his era. This is an extraordinary association copy, since Talleyrand, as Napoleon's Foreign Minister, was responsible for both the acquiring and sale by France of the areas explored by Zebulon Pike a few years later. In 1800, in the Treaty of San Ildefonso, Spain ceded France control of the Louisiana territory, a vast and fertile area stretching northwest from New Orleans, and encompassing about 827,000 square miles. Napoleon briefly entertained a grand strategy in the Americas, but abandoned it in early 1803, as imminent war between France and England convinced him that his dreams of American empire would de thwarted, since British naval superiority made communication impossible. On the principal that the enemy of his enemy was his friend, in a move that dramatically altered American history, Napoleon empowered Talleyrand, his Foreign Minister, to offer the entire Louisiana territory to the Americans and thus keep it out of British hands. On April 11, 1803, Talleyrand allegedly asked American minister Robert Livingston, "What will you give for the whole?" A few weeks later the United States agreed to pay France just over $11 million for the entire territory, roughly three cents an acre. Once Louisiana was acquired, President Jefferson dispatched the expeditions of Lewis and Clark, and Zebulon Pike to survey the new territory. The present publication is Pike's report of the first United States expedition to the Southwest, here in the handsome first British edition. One of the most important American travel books, including accounts of Pike's explorations on the Mississippi, Red, and Arkansas rivers, Texas, and the Spanish settlements in New Mexico. The maps present in this edition are the "Map of the Interior Part of Louisiana" and a reduced version of the map of the Mississippi. The Pike expedition stands with the narratives of Lewis and Clark, and Long, as the most important of the early books on western exploration. The six-page Preface and one leaf of General Contents at the beginning of this copy are actually intended for David McPherson's THE HISTORY OF THE EUROPEAN COMMERCE WITH INDIA, published the next year by the same publisher. The entire Pike work is present. A remarkable association copy of the minister who brokered sale of the entire Louisiana Territory to the United States.

        PRESUMING THAT NO QUESTION WILL BE MADE AS TO THE TRUTH OF THE FACTS STATED IN THE FOLLOWING INTERESTING AFFIDAVIT, IT IS REPRINTED, IN ORDER THAT THE PUBLIC MAY SEE WHAT GAME HAS BEEN GOING ON IN AMERICA FOR THE PURPOSE OF CRIMPING SAILORS OUT OF THE BRITISH NAVY...[caption title]

      London, 1811. Old fold lines. Faint offsetting, else fine. Large broadside printing of an affidavit given by five British sailors, attesting to their being impressed into service on American merchant ships while in New York City. The deposition states that John Harrington, James Young, Joseph Armstrong, John Quinny, and George Adamson are British sailors who shipped on the Brig Rachel from Sunderland on a voyage to New York. Once arrived in New York, they were shanghaied by a gentleman named David Reed, who got them outrageously drunk and then forced them aboard a ship in the North River, whereupon Reed was paid $40 apiece for each man. The statement is sworn before Charles Christian, Special Justice of the Peace for New York City, Dec. 18, 1810. Only three copies recorded in OCLC, at New-York Historical Society, Harvard University, and the Detroit Public Library. Scarce and interesting, highlighting events which doubtless added fuel to the tensions that became the War of 1812.
