         War of 1812

      , 1812 - 1814. 1812 - 1814. Collection of 104 issues of “The War,” mostly four pages each, three columns per page, published in New York City every Saturday morning beginning June 27, 1814, through January 16, 1813, thereafter every Tuesday, by S. Woodworth & Co., No. 60 Vesey-Street, 218 (Volume I) and 210 (Volume II) numbered pages, 9” x 11.25”, front and verso. Publisher Samuel Woodworth (1784-1841) recalled Patrick Henry’s patriotic cry in his paper’s motto, printed just beneath the title, “Let the Rallying Word, Through All the Day, be ‘Liberty or Death.’” Signature “L. Sage” or “Luther Sage” on top of the first page of many issues. The newspapers were published on paper made using cotton rag fiber and are generally in very good condition. Some tears (on less than 10% of the pages), corner missing on one leaf, stains. Light foxing. A title page and two-page “Index to the Principal Events Recorded in the First Volume of The War” precedes the first 52 issues; a similar title page and index precedes the newspapers of the second volume of “The War.” The title page: “The War./being/A Faithful Record of the Transactions of the War between the/United States of America/and their Territories/and the/United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland,/and the Dependencies thereof/Declared on the Eighteenth Day of June, 1812.” First title page and index frayed at edges. There are no advertisements; there are a few poems. It is noted in each newspaper in the second volume that “Subscribers, by leaving their files at the office, can have them bound to any pattern. Numbers lost or mislaid will be supplied.” Since each volume has a title page and index, Mr. Sage had his copies bound. However, Woodworth’s original binding has been replaced with a modern, plain binding, imprinted on the tan cover and the spine, “The War of 1812.”Woodworth’s printing business faced hardships because of the war. “The War,” without advertisements, was not a financially successful enterprise for Woodworth who inserted in the eight-page, March 9, 1813, issue: “To those few who have not paid up the second quarter, we would observe, that as ‘money is the very sinew of War,’ it cannot be successfully carried on without it. We therefore rely upon their patriotism to send in their arrearages.” He discontinued “The War” after the September 6, 1814, issue, 3½ months before the war itself officially ended; the Treaty of Ghent was signed on December 24, 1814. There was no title page nor index to the 12 issues of Volume III, nor was it offered bound as were the 52 issues in each of the first two volumes. After Woodworth lost his business in 1815, he went to work for printer Charles N. Baldwin who printed three more issues of “The War” in 1817, covering the last seven months of the War of 1812. Congressional reports leading to the war and the declaration of war are reported in the first two issues, June 27, 1812 and July 4, 1812. Excerpts: War of 1812 Song. August 1, 1812 (eight-page issue), pp. 27-28. Following the printing of seven lines of music (with pencil notations), “Tompkins’ Grand Slow March” and “Tompkins’ Quick Step” each “Composed by Mr. O’Hara, an honorary member of the Juvenile Sons of Erin,” are the lyrics of “An Original Song,” five stanzas, each with the refrain revealing the melody: “Yankee land is Liberty’s hall,/Yankee doodle dandy,/Let British boatswains wind the call/And pipe, freedom is the dandy.” “Constitution” vs. “Guerriere.” September 5, 1812, p. 46. “The U.S. frigate Constitution, cap. Hull, has arrived at Boston, from a cruise of only two weeks, during which she has recaptured several American vessels, captured 2 British brigs, and taken and destroyed the British frigate Guerriere. The following account was furnished by an officer of the Constitution, and may be relied on in every particular...” Surrender of Gen. Hull at Detroit. September 5, 1812, p. 47. “Capture of Gen. Hull, and his army. With heartfelt regret we have to announce this unpleasant intelligence to our readers. No official account of this event has yet been received in this city, but abundance of corroborating testimony is received from various quarters, which justify us in its belief. The particulars of this unfortunate event are stated to be as follow...” 27-year-old future President promoted. November 7, 1812, p. 38. “The president has conferred upon Capt. Z. Taylor, of the 7th regiment, U.S. infantry, the brevet rank of major, for his gallant defense of Fort Harrison.” Description of “General Tecumseh.” January 26, 1813, p. 136. “We find in the history of gen. Hull’s expedition the following ‘brief description’ of the celebrated Anglo-savage, brig. Gen. Tecumseh, now in the British service: ‘Tecumseh is about 45 years of age, of the Shawanoe tribe, six feet high, well-proportioned for his height, of effect and lofty deportment, penetrating eye, rather stern in his visage; artful; insidious in preparing enterprises and bold in their execution...’” President Madison’s Inaugural Address. March 16, 1813, pp. 166-167. “About to add the solemnity of an oath to the obligations impressed by a second call to the station, in which my country here before placed me, I find, in the presence of this respectable assembly, an opportunity of publicly repeating my profound sense of so distinguished a confidence, and of the responsibility united with it...” “We have met the enemy...” October 5, 1813, p. 66. “Further on the Victory on Erie. Cesarean brevity. The first of the following letters from commodore Perry to general Harrison is more laconic than any of Bonaparte’s dispatches, and resembles the veni, vidi, vici, of the immortal Julius, more than any thing we have before seen. It is a perfect model of the multum in parvo. U.S. brig Niagara, off the Western Sister, head of Lake Erie, Sept. 10th, 1813, 4 P.M Dear general â€

         SECHS DEUTSCHE REDEN: GEHALTEN IN DER SYNAGOGE ZU DESSAU NEBST EINER HEBRAISCHEN UEBERSETZUNG DERSELBEN

      Dessau: M. Philippsohn, (Gedruckt Bei C. Schleider)(1812). 1st Edition.Period boards. 12mo. 119 pages ; 16 cm. In German. The first volume of published German sermons written by a Jew. Title translates into English as "Six German Sermons from the Synagogue in Dessau. " In his essay "Preacher, Teacher, Publicist: Joseph Wolf and the Ideology of Emancipation, " Yale University Professor David Sorkin discusses the significance of this publication, suggesting that Wolf "retained his own characteristic version of the Dessau tradition of the conservative Haskalah but gave it a radical turn by altering its context rather than its content. The new context was the German-language media of the journal and the sermon. In 1805 Wolf began to give some of the first German-language sermons in the Dessau synagogue. These were the exception in Central Europe....Wolf's sermons followed the best Enlightenment Protestant models of the time in their elevated diction, sombre tone and clearly demarcated three- or four-part structure. Here the religious Enlightenment, or at least its forms, seemed to have penetrated to the very heart of Judaism, the synagogue....In 1806 Wolf also helped to found the first German-language journal to be published by Jews in Germany, Sulamith....clearly heir to the Haskalah....In the media of the sermon and the German-language journal, Wolf helped lay the foundations of a 'public sphere, ' the organs of communication in which a collective identity and cultural-political consciousness could be created for the emerging German-Jewish middle classes....Wolf gathered the best of his sermons into two volumes. When they appeared in 1821-1813, they were the first volumes of published German sermons written and delivered by a Jew. Wolf's sermons inaugurated a veritable flood of sermonic literature, which continued unabated into the twentieth century. As early as the 1830s some observers were declaring the German-language sermon to be the most important of the abundant innovations aimed at rehabilitating Judaism and the Jews. " (Sorkin, pp.119-122) . The significance of this change was not lost on the author, who titled this collection, "Six GERMAN Sermons. " A second volume was issued the next year, with the same title, and with an additional six sermons. Notably, these two volumes were the last publication of the great Haskalah publisher Moses Philippsohn, who was closely associated with Moses Mendelssohn. "Philippson (1775 -- 1814) was a Jewish writer, teacher, translator and publisher ... (who) contributed significantly to spreading the German language of the Jews among the Jews, and by fostering the links with German culture. " (Wikipedia, 2017) SUBJECT(S) : Jewish sermons, German. OCLC lists 10 copies worldwide with no copies on the American East Coast. Jewish institutional stamp on title page. Foxing throughout, spine rebacked with tape, with last leaf starting.

         A grammar of the Malayan language with an introduction and a praxis

      London: printed for the author by Cox and Baylis, 1812. First edition, 4to, pp. [4], l, [2], 225, [2]; late 19th century half blue morocco gilt over marbled boards, t.e.g.; very good and sound. Textually complete with the half title and the final leaf advertising his Malayan dictionary and his History of Sumatra. Well represented in institutions, but scarce in the trade. Marsden (1754-1836), orientalist and numismatist, "during an eight years' residence in Sumatra, did good official service as sub-secretary, and afterwards as principal secretary, to the government. He amused his leisure hours by writing verses and by acting female parts in a theatre at Bencoolen built and chiefly managed by his brother. He also mastered the vernacular tongue, a study which bore fruit later," in both the present volume and his dictionary, published earlier the same year (DNB).

His father was a maf ire des comptes; he was educated for the law, and became advocate at the Chtelet in 1755, master of requests to the council of state in 1760, and intendant successively of Auvergne, Provence and La Rochelle. He had repeatedly shown great independence of character, protesting against the accusation of Caradeuc de La Chalotais in 1766, and refusing in 1771 to suppress the local courts of justice in obedience to Maupeou. He was made a councillor of state in 1775 by the influence of Louis de Bourbon, duke of Penthivre, and in 1780 he was attached to the court in the honorary office of chancellor to the comte d Artois (afterwards Charles X.). He followed the princes into exile, and lived for some years in London. During the emigration period he spent large sums on the alleviation of the poverty of his fellow immigrants, returning to France only at the second restoration. Between 1780 and 1787 he had founded a series of prizes, the awards to be made by the French academy and the academies of science and medicine. These prizes fell into abeyance during the revolutionary period, but were re-established in 1815. Montyon died on the 29th of December 1820, bequeathing io,ooo francs for the perpetual endowment of each of the following prizes: for the discovery of the means of rendering some mechanical process less dangerous to the workman; for the perfecting of any technical improvement in a mechanical process; for the book which during the year rendered the greatest service to humanity; the prix de vertu for the most courageous act on the part of a poor Frenchmanthe awards being left as before to the learned academies. Montyon wrote a series of works, chiefly on political economy: Eloge de Michel de lhpital (Paris, 1777); Recherches et considerations sur la population de la France (1778), a share of which is attributed to his secretary, Moheau; Rapport fail a Louis XVIII. (Constance, 1796), in which he maintained in opposition to Calonnes Tableau de lEurope that France had always possessed a constitution, which had, however, been violated by the kings of France; Letat statistique du Tunkin (1811); and Particularites . . . sur les ministres des finances en France (1812). fr 550 Buch [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Autograph Letter Signed, "N Webster jun[ior]," to bookseller Daniel Steele of Albany, NY requesting payment for the sale of a Dictionary

      New Haven, Ct, 1812. 1 p. pen and ink with integral address leaf and docketing. 4to. Old folds. 1 p. pen and ink with integral address leaf and docketing. 4to. I received from you last summer ... 15 dol'rs on ... the Dictionaries. Reading in part: "I received from you last summer by your brother, 15 dol'rs on acct. of the Dictionaries. I understand you sent some of them - I believe 50 - to Mr. Seward of Utica. If so, you retain, if I recollect right, 150 copies - or 250. I wish for a settlement - if the books are sold - you deducting expenses & your commission. At any rate I wish for an amount of sales - & any balance in your hands. I sold the books at 42 cents - 42 dollars the hundred - at the time of publication. [A]s I have waited so long, if any profit has accrued, I ought to receive it. I have drawn an order by Mr. Platt ...." Webster most likely refers to his Compendious Dictionary of the English Language, printed in 1806 in an edition of 7,000 copies and priced $1.50. It was Webster's first dictionary and its publication marked a turning point in Webster's life, as he would devote the next twenty plus years to working on his historic American Dictionary (1828). If Webster's efforts to collect his profits don't come across here as urgent, it is likely because his Speller, Grammar, and Reader had long since been mainstays in American classrooms, and earned for him a comfortable living. Daniel Steele was among the earliest booksellers in Albany and "kept the largest and best assortment of books outside of New York City" (Howell and Tenney, Bi-centennial History of Albany, p. 650).

         SECHS DEUTSCHE REDEN: GEHALTEN IN DER SYNAGOGE ZU DESSAU NEBST EINER HEBRAISCHEN UEBERSETZUNG DERSELBEN. [COMPLETE IN 2 VOLUMES]

      Dessau: M. Philippsohn, (Gedruckt Bei C. Schleider)(1812-1813). 1st Edition. Period Stylized Paper Wrappers. 8vo. 2 Volumes in 1: [119], 102 pages ; 16 cm. In German. The first volumes of published German sermons written by a Jew. Title translates into English as "Six German Sermons from the Synagogue in Dessau. " Both volumes have the same title, and each contain six different sermons. In his essay "Preacher, Teacher, Publicist: Joseph Wolf and the Ideology of Emancipation, " Yale University Professor David Sorkin discusses the significance of this publication, suggesting that Wolf "retained his own characteristic version of the Dessau tradition of the conservative Haskalah but gave it a radical turn by altering its context rather than its content. The new context was the German-language media of the journal and the sermon. In 1805 Wolf began to give some of the first German-language sermons in the Dessau synagogue. These were the exception in Central Europe....Wolf's sermons followed the best Enlightenment Protestant models of the time in their elevated diction, sombre tone and clearly demarcated three- or four-part structure. Here the religious Enlightenment, or at least its forms, seemed to have penetrated to the very heart of Judaism, the synagogue....In 1806 Wolf also helped to found the first German-language journal to be published by Jews in Germany, Sulamith....clearly heir to the Haskalah....In the media of the sermon and the German-language journal, Wolf helped lay the foundations of a 'public sphere, ' the organs of communication in which a collective identity and cultural-political consciousness could be created for the emerging German-Jewish middle classes....Wolf gathered the best of his sermons into two volumes. When they appeared in 1821-1813, they were the first volumes of published German sermons written and delivered by a Jew. Wolf's sermons inaugurated a veritable flood of sermonic literature, which continued unabated into the twentieth century. As early as the 1830s some observers were declaring the German-language sermon to be the most important of the abundant innovations aimed at rehabilitating Judaism and the Jews. " (Sorkin, pp.119-122) . The significance of this change was not lost on the author, who titled this collection, "Six GERMAN Sermons. " Notably, it was also the last publication of the great Haskalah publisher Moses Philippsohn, who was closely associated with Moses Mendelssohn. "Philippson (1775 -- 1814) was a Jewish writer, teacher, translator and publisher ... (who) contributed significantly to spreading the German language of the Jews among the Jews, and by fostering the links with German culture. " (Wikipedia, 2017) SUBJECT(S) : Jewish sermons, German. OCLC lists 10 copies worldwide with no copies on the American East Coast. Jewish institutional stamp on title page. Wrappers worn and back wrapper is creased. Paper toning. Overall, a nice copy of this historic book. About very good condition. (GER-59-17)

      Paris: Le Normant, Firmin Didot,, 1812.. Octavo (196 x 120 mm). Late 19th or early 20th century half calf and marbled boards by George J. Swayne of Brooklyn, spine decorated gilt in compartments, morocco labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Large folding table opposite page 66. Engraved armorial bookplate of Alexis and Elizabeth du Pont of Rencourt to front pastedown. Folding table trimmed at foot with slight loss of text. Stated second edition but apparently the first printed. Schelle cites a "Philadelphia 1800" edition (no. 74) but we have been unable to locate a copy and it is apparently unrecorded. Dupont had published in 1793 a work of 47 pages entitled Vues sur l'éducation nationale par un cultivateur ou moyen de simplifier l'instruction, de la rendre à la fois morale, philosophique, républicaine, civile et militaire, sans déranger les travaux de l'agriculture et des arts auxquels la jeunesse doit concourir, and it is possible that he called the present work a second edition because of that. There is no mention of an earlier edition in the preface however, where Du Pont speaks only of the manuscript "made in 1800." That manuscript, completed at the request of Thomas Jefferson in August 1800, the year Du Pont arrived in the United States, is dated at the end, "A Good-Stay, pres New York, 15 juin 1800." According to the note in the Hagley record, the manuscript, or a copy thereof, was sent to Jefferson who did not act upon it until 1816 when he gave it to Francis Walker Gilmer. The latter was working on a translation in 1817 at the time of Du Pont's death. The copy sent to Jefferson and the translation have never been located. Hagley has an undated manuscript copy in an unidentified hand with Du Pont's corrections which was acquired at some point by Pierre S. Du Pont. But it was from this printed edition published in 1812 that Mrs. Bessie Gardner Du Pont made the English translation published in 1923.

         AN ACADEMY FOR GROWN HORSEMEN and ANNALS OF HORSEMANSHIP.

      London. John Stockdale. 1812 - QUARTO 11 x 9 1/2 inches, very handsomely leather bound in FULL STRAIGHT- GRAINED MOROCCO GILT BY WALLIS. 2 volumes in one, the first being the fourth edition- illustrated with 12 and 17 - a total of 29 FINE HAND COLOURED PLATES with accompanying text. A bizarre pagination to the introduction to the Academy as explained in the preface. A very good and handsomely bound copy of this quarto edition. Half title to the second work only. BUNBURY, HENRY WILLIAM (1750–1811), amateur artist and caricaturist. He was the friend of Goldsmith, Garrick, and Reynolds, and the favourite of the Duke and Duchess of York, to whom in 1787 he was appointed equerry. All this, coupled with the facts that he was seldom, if ever, personal, and wholly abstained from political subjects, greatly aided his popularity with the printsellers and the public of his day, and secured his admission, as an honorary exhibitor, to the walls of the Academy, where between 1780 and 1808 his works frequently appeared.

         Influence or Prerogative? Being an Attempt to Remove Certain..

      1812. Scarce Essay on the English Constitution Advocating a Greater Degree of Royal Influence Twiss, Horace [1787-1849]. Influence or Prerogative? Being an Attempt to Remove Certain Popular Misconceptions Respecting the Present State of the British Constitution and Government. London: Printed for J. Hatchard, 1812. 94 pp. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent stiff wrappers, printed paper title label to front cover. Some toning, light foxing to a few leaves, light soiling to title page and verso of final leaf. "The Lord Viscount Palmerston with the Author's Compliments" to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. $500. * Only edition. A presentation copy to Lord Palmerston. The author defends the influence of the Crown in the scheme of British Parliamentary government; without it the Prerogative would have to be revived. In his conservative view of the constitution and its core concept of checks and balances, the increasing influence of the Crown is indicative of the growing power of Commons and consequently the need to maintain equilibrium. Twiss was called to the bar in 1811 and later served as King's Counsel. As an author he is remembered for his life of Lord Eldon and for a number of literary works. This is his first publication relating to the law. OCLC locates 2 copies in North America, neither in law libraries. Not in Sweet & Maxwell.

         Neue Gedichte.

      1812 1812 - Darmstadt: Heyer und Leske 1812. With copperengraved frontispiece and vignettes. XII + 198 + [6] pp. Clean and well-preserved copy with wide margin bound in publisher's marbled paperboards with paperlabel on spine. In nice newer paper box with leatherlabel on spine. Box signed Harry Larsen. * I dette eksemplar, som forfatterinden har lånt JENS BAGGESEN, der netop var vendt tilbage fra Paris, har han på side 198-199 skrevet et digt på tysk (12 linier) til Friederike Brun. Digtet er i to versioner, næsten identiske. Det ene er skrevet med gotisk, det andet med latinske bogstaver. Begge er signerede. Det ene dateret d. 20. April 1813. Senere har forfatterinden foræret bogen til portræt- og historiemaleren J.L. Lund [1777-1867] med denne dedikation på indersiden af forpermen "Meinem Freunde Lund die Verfasserin". J.L. Lund malede datteren Ida Brun (Grevinde de Bombelles) flere gange, berømtest er portrættet fra Rom 1810. Også med deltitelblad "Gedichte von Friederike Brun geb. Münter. Zweiter Band", en henvisning til det bind digte forfatterinden udgav i Zürich 1795.Baggesen, who had just returned from Paris, borrowed this copy from the author and wrote a 12-lined poem to Fr. Brun in German language on pp. 198-199; the poem is in two versions, almost identical, one written in Gothic letters, the other in Latin letters, both signed and one dated April 20 1813. Later Brun gave the book as a gift to the portrait-painter J.L. Lund with inscription on inner frontboard: 'My friend Lund from the author'. Bibl. Danica IV, 270. Goedeke V,431,7.

         Silvanella; or, The Gypsey. A novel. In four volumes. 4 vols. in 2, 12mo.

      Gloucester: Printed by Joseph Wood, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Browne, Paternoster- row, London; Brisley, Stroud; and Washbourn, Gloucester. 1812 - 8pp. subscribers list, vol. I, errata slips tipped into first 2 vols & pasted to verso of title in vol. 3; sl. dusted. Contemp. half brown calf over marbled boards, spine tooled in gilt with alternating black and red labels; very sl. splitting along tails of following hinges, boards sl. rubbed. Bookplate of E. H. (Edward Howard) Greenly, & ink ownership inscription of Lady Elizabeth Greenly on each titlepage. An attractive copy of an exceptionally rare early nineteenth-century novel. BL, Liverpool, University of Sydney & University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign only. Contemporary paper strip tipped over first publisher's name (Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Browne) within imprint of each title with ?For? written in ink, so that the altered imprint reads ?Gloucester: printed by Joseph Wood, for Brisley, Stroud; and Washbourn, Gloucester? The novel was also issued by the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman in 1812, with only one extant copy at the BL. It seems likely that Longmans - the original publishers - disassociated themselves from the novel after the sheets had already been printed by Joseph Wood, so he and his local associates covered the Longmans imprint on the original titlepage and sold what they could. Shortly afterwards, the Minerva Press must have bought the original sheets and issued them with a cancel titlepage reading ?London: printed at the Minerva Press, For A.K. Newman and Co. Leadenhall-Street. 1812?, with ?Printed by J. Wood, Herald Office, Gloucester? on verso. The novel is a tale of inheritance and mistaken identity, and tells the story of a gypsy girl who is taken in by a wealthy bachelor and raised as a member of the family. It was reviewed as a Minerva Press novel by early women?s magazine La Belle Assemblée in 1812 (Issue 40) and was declared an enjoyable, though predictable, first novel. The reviewer writes that the authoress ?certainly has talents? for the ?just delineation of natural character? and states that ?we shall be glad to see a future production of this lady?s.? The anonymous author?s second book Lady Jane?s Pocket was published by the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman in 1815. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Shortly After the Beginning of the War of 1812, Monroe Expresses his Opposition to Mob Violence

      Virginia 1812 - Autograph Letter Signed as James Madison's Secretary of State to an unidentified friend, Albemarle [his home], Virginia, August 5, 1812. 1 p. Partial Transcript"Albermarle Augt. 5. 1812Dear Sir.We hear nothing of Com[modore John]: Ro[d]gers, and am much in the dark respecting the character, the causes, & consequences of the late movement at Baltimore. Altho' a combination of men, unknown to the law, without notice to the constituted authorities, to support a measure, even legal in itself, tending to excite a popular feeling, and raise a mob, for the purpose of suppressing it, can not be commended, yet mobs ought not to exist, and should be suppressed. Your friend Jas Monroe."Historical BackgroundBeginning with the first day of hostilities of the War of 1812, on June 18, 1812, the war provoked passionate pro- and anti-British sentiments in the hearts of Americans. The government's position, represented here by Monroe as Secretary of State, was vociferously opposed by the Federalists whose viewpoint was espoused by the newspaper The Federalist Republican, published in Baltimore by Alexander C. Hanson, the grandson of John Hanson, and by Henry 'Light Horse Harry' Lee, noted Revolutionary War general. Their position, clearly supporting Great Britain, was published in the issue of July 27, 1812. On the following day, July 28, an unruly mob, declaring Hanson and his supporters traitors, attacked the newspaper office. Hanson, Lee and their few adherents were rushed to a local jail for their own protection, but the next day the mob broke into the jail, killing one of the newspaper employees, injuring Hanson and severely and permanently injuring General Lee.
