        A REPORT OF THE TRIAL OF ARTHUR HODGE, ESQUIRE, (LATE ONE OF THE MEMBERS OF HIS MAJESTY'S COUNCIL FOR THE VIRGIN-ISLANDS) AT THE ISLAND OF TORTOLA, ON THE 25TH APRIL, 1811, AND ADJOURNED TO THE 29TH OF THE SAME MONTH; FOR THE MURDER OF HIS NEGRO MAN SLAVE NAMED PROSPER. STENOGRAPHICALLY TAKEN BY A.M. BELISARIO, ESQUIRE, ONE OF THE GRAND JURY WHO FOUND THE BILL OF INDICTMENT; AND CERTIFIED TO BE IMPARTIAL AND CORRECT BY HIS HONOR RICHARD HETHERINGTON, ESQ. PRESIDENT OF THE VIRGIN-ISLANDS, AND PRESIDENT OF THE COURT ON THIS TRIAL.

      Tertius Dunning,, Middletown [CT]: 1812 - Contemporary paper-covered boards [rebacked in period style]. [2], 186 pp. Untrimmed, occasional toning and mild foxing. Very Good. A rare printing of a judicial rarity: the trial of a master for murdering his slave. American Imprints, locating only one copy [Fisk University], suggests incorrectly that Middletown Tennessee, was the printing site. Hodge's brutality was too much even for the slave province of Tortola: the jury sentenced him to hang because Hodge, after having flogged Prosper for two days, left him to die a painful death-- without food or medical aid-- over the next week and a half. This case was extraordinary for several reasons, not least that "the chief prosecution witness was a free black woman. In the slave states (and some of the free states) it was illegal for a black to testify against a white" [Finkelman 291]. The evidence demonstrated Hodge's notoriously cruel treatment of his slaves. For Hodge's lawyers to assert "that a negro, being property, it was no greater offence in law for his owner to kill him, than it would be to kill his dog" [page 77], was surely a major tactical error. Hodge was hanged; the case apparently contributed to the abolition of slavery in the British West Indies. FIRST EDITION. Finkelman 290. II Harv. Law Cat. 1103. AI 24790 [1]. OCLC locates seven copies as of April 2017 under several accession numbers. LCP Supp. 1080. Cohen 12700. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Documents manuscrits sur les enfants abandonnés en 1812 en Dordogne (arrondissement de Nontron : 16 lettres autographes datées et signées (échange épistolaire entre le Préfet de la Dordogne, le maire de Nontron, le maire de Boulouneix et Belaygue, le maire de Corgnac-sur-l'Isle et le Sous-Préfet de Nontron sur le sort des enfants

      1812 - Enfants trouvés et abandonnés de la Gironde, de la Dordogne et du Périgord au XIX° siècle : A la campagne où ils grandissaient on les appelait « bourdeaux », en référence aux lieux de mauvaise vie, de mauvaises mères, des bordels. Lorsqu'une mère, en abandonnant son enfant, s'attache à envelopper cet abandon d'un épais mystère, l'enfant sera ordinairement illégitime, quelquefois adultérin. Ordinairement la mère a besoin du secret, parce qu'elle veut sauver sa réputation ; si elle n'a de moyens d'existence que dans son travail, elle craint aussi de perdre la position qui le lui procure. Si elle fille encore, elle appréhendera de voir s'évanouir pour elle l'espoir d'un établissement. Mais des personnes aisées, et même riches, recourent aussi à ce moyen de voiler leur faute. Le dépôt dans un hospice leur assure un secret bien plus inviolable qu'un placement en nourrice qui appellerait des confidents.Quelquefois pour mieux s'assurer du secret, on fait porter l'enfant dans un hospice plus ou moins éloignés ; il y a des gens qui font de ce transport un objet habituel de commerce. La Manufacture pouvait se définir comme un rouage essentiel de la direction des hôpitaux de la ville de Bordeaux, comme un lieu de passage ou comme un lieu de vie. C'est à la Manufacture que se situaient les services qui traitaient de la vie des enfants qui pouvaient être regroupés en trois catégories en 1811. Les enfants trouvés dont les parents ne sont pas connus - ce sont les plus nombreux jusqu'en 1852. Les enfants abandonnés nés de parents connus qui d'abord élevés par eux ou par d'autres personnes, en sont délaissés, sans qu'on sache ce que les pères et mères sont devenus. Les subsistants : leur parents sont connus. Ils sont placés provisoirement. Par la suite, certains jeunes ont été classés dans les indigents, orphelins, etc. C'est par le moyen du Tour que le nourrisson faisait son entrée officielle dans la société. « Nous ignorons comment été faite la boîte de l'Hôpital Saint-Louis, mais nous savons mieux qu'elle était celle de l'Hôpital de la manufacture auquel l'Hôpital Saint Louis fut réuni en 1772. Elle se composait d'une barrique vide dont on avait scié dans le sens vertical près de la moitié des douves, de façon à conserver intacte la partie inférieure. La barrique était montée sur un pivot central. Un autre pivot la maintenait dans sa partie supérieure et c'est ainsi qu'elle pouvait tourner facilement sur elle-même. Elle était placée juste derrière la façade principale de la maison et communiquait avec l'extérieur par une large baie circulaire pratiquée dans le mur, à hauteur d'appui. A travers cette ouverture on passait l'enfant que l'on déposait dans la barrique. On faisait ensuite pivoter celle-ci, on sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné dans la sinistre machine. On comprend qu'on ait pu y introduire non seulement le nouveau-né, mais plusieurs enfants, de toute taille, même âgés de douze ans ». « On sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné ». Après avoir été baptisé, l'enfant rejoignait la crèche où des nourrices le prenaient en charge. Car, quelle que soit son origine - il peut venir de départements extérieurs et certaines personnes faisaient office d'intermédiaires - une inscription était portée sur les registres de naissance de la ville de Bordeaux. L'histoire de cet enfant s'arrêtait là. En ce qui concerne les survivants, des petits dossiers regroupent des traces de la vie l'enfant, complétant les informations figurant sur le registre: séjours chez des familles, mariage, ou problèmes divers liés à l'enfance ou à l'adolescence de ces enfants ou très jeunes adultes. Les enfants étaient mis en nourrice dans le nord-Gironde, le sud de la Charente-Inférieure, de la Charente et dans l'est de la Dordogne. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Sketch of the Sikhs; A Singular Nation, Who Inhabit the Provinces of the Punjab, Situated Between The Rivers Jumna and Indus.

      Sole edition thus. 8vo. (iv), 198 pp, bound without the final leaf of publisher's advertisements. Contemporary half calf rebacked to style, raised bands, gilt lettered red label, an autograph letter signed from the author bound in on a tab at the front of the book. Originally published in the eleventh volume of the Asiatic Researches. However, that work not being in "common circulation, it is now republished; and may prove acceptable, as a short and clear account of an oriental people, of singular and religion and manners, with whose history the European reader can be but little acquainted." The letter is addressed to "My dear Hare", Malcolm's friend the writer and theologian Julius Hare. He apologises for being in a "great bustle", but confides that "they are I am told to make me Governor of Bombay again and give me other work congenial to my whole soul." The letter has been dated 16th January, possibly in Hare's hand, and will have been composed in 1827 - the year Malcolm was appointed to the Bombay governorship. Malcolm had previously sought out the job of Governor of Madras, but Stephen Rumbold Lushington was the preferred candidate. However, in late 1826 it became apparent that Mountstuart Elphinstone was to retire from Bombay. Malcolm had considered other appointments in England in the interim, but he keenly accepted the opportunity to return to India with the potential to one day gain the highest Imperial rank, that of Governor-General. This ambition was never realised as despite his successes in Bombay his tenure was spiked with several controversies. He returned to England in 1830 where he spent the remaining three years of his life. Scarce.

        Scloppetaria: or Considerations of the Nature and Use of Rifled Barrel Guns, with Reference to Their Forming the Basis of a Permanent System of National Defence, Agreeable to the Genius of the Country

      London: Printed by C. Roworth, Bell-yard, Temple-Bar, for T. Egerton, Military Library, Near Whitehall, 1812. x Second Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Fine. xxiv, 251, [7] pages, including the errata sheet. Nine engraved plates and three target plates, showing the accuracy of various rifle bores. With a fourth target illustration, in manuscript, bound in. A significant early work on the rifle (the title is a Latinized word meaning The Militiaman) describing attempts to increase the accuracy of weapons. The anonymous author of this book argues for a greater twist to the rifling than was prevalent at the time. The person who inserted the additional manuscript target plate (initials R.E.P.) agreed with that proposition and his manuscript target plate results using quarter, half, and three-quarter twists supports that conclusion. Second ediiton. Recently half-bound in blue straight-grained morocco and marbled paper. Fine.

        An Essay on the Preservation of Shipwrecked Persons: With a Descriptive Account of the Apparatus and the Manner of Applying It.

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1812 . xiii, 94, (1) pp. b/w wood engraved ills. Manby is most noted for his book about a whaling voyage to Greenland. In this book, written ten years earlier, he rightly surmises that one of the chief difficulties is that of firing a line from shore to ship. In storm conditions, guns often fail to fire. He suggests remedies and works through other aspects of lifesaving technology as it existed then. His explanations are enhanced by attractive wood engraved illustrations. A scarce work. Worldcat shows only four libraries holding copies, and the auction records reflect this. In its two most recent sales at auction, the book brought £713 in 2010 and $2880 in 2007. Signature cut from upper right corner of title page, with no loss of text. A clean copy in original calf over patterned cloth. Rebacked in matching leather, with original spine labels.

Dark staining to top edge/gutter of first few leaves, one plate (No. 10) with partial loss. All else very good. Born in Ireland in 1767, Smyth moved to Virginia with his family at the age of 7. He became an attorney and was elected several times to the Virginia House of Delegates. In 1808, he left politics to accept an invitation from Thomas Jefferson to serve as colonel of the newly formed U.S. Rifle Regiment. He "rendered effective military service, and in 1811 President James Madison's secretary of war, William Eustis, approached him to compile a new system of military discipline to replace the venerated Blue Book of Baron Friedrich von Steuben. Smyth complied by writing [this book], which became the army's first official drill manual in thirty years. This abridgement of the French 1791 Reglement, though much criticized by [some of Smyth's political enemies], was adopted on 3 March 1812, the first of a series of French manuals that would dominate American military tactics until the Civil War" (ANB).

        THE HISTORY OF THE JEWS FROM THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM TO THE NINETEENTH CENTURY. VOL. 2 ONLY, COVERING THE 13TH -19TH CENTURIES.

      Boston, J. Eliot, Jr. , 1812 - Period quarter leather, 12mo, 338 pages. 1st edition of the first modern sympatheic history of the Jews by a non-Jew. Singerman 0218. Rosenbach 162. Shaw & Shoemaker 24528. Volume 2 only, but complete for the medieval and modern period. Hannah Adams (1755- 1831) was "an early American historian and pioneer in the field of comparative religion, was also the first [female] American author to make a living solely from writing. She was the first historian of religions ever to try to represent sects and denominations in terms which adherents themselves used and from their perspective . During the Revolutionary War one of the boarding students [of her father] gave Adams a copy of Thomas Broughton's An Historical Dictionary of All Religions from the Creation of the World to This Perfect Time, 1742. Reading Broughton ‘awakened my curiosity, ’ she later wrote . In 1778 she began to compile a new reference work according to her own rules. She resolved ‘to avoid giving the least preference of one denomination above another’ and to present the arguments and sentiments of each sect in believers' own words, according to the group's ‘general collective sense. ’ . In a society whose elite valued education and faith, Adams became a dinner and house-party star . Adams's wide knowledge made her a staple in liberal New England's social whirl. She even enjoyed a two-week stay at the home of her distant cousin, John Adams, second President of the United States .She succeeded through personal relations with the affluent . Her later works included History of the Jews, 1812 . Among short articles on Adams are Conrad C. Wright, "Adams, Hannah, " Notable American Women 1607-1950 (1971) ; Carol Berkin, "Adams, Hannah, " American National Biography (1999) ; and Elizabeth Curtiss, "Hannah Adams: Biographical Sketch, " in Dorothy Emerson, ed. , Standing Before Us (2000) " (Curtiss in Dictionary of Unitarian & Universalist Biography, 2013) .

        An Essay on the Preservation of Shipwrecked Persons: With a Descriptive Account of the Apparatus and the Manner of Applying It.

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1812 . xiii, 94, (1) pp. b/w wood engraved ills. Manby is most noted for his book about a whaling voyage to Greenland. In this book, written ten years earlier, he rightly surmises that one of the chief difficulties is that of firing a line from shore to ship. In storm conditions, guns often fail to fire. He suggests remedies and works through other aspects of lifesaving technology as it existed then. His explanations are enhanced by attractive wood engraved illustrations. A scarce work. Worldcat shows only four libraries holding copies, and the auction records reflect this. In its two most recent sales at auction, the book brought £713 in 2010 and $2880 in 2007. Signature cut from upper right corner of title page, with no loss of text. A clean copy in original calf over patterned cloth. Rebacked in matching leather, with original spine labels.

II: With manuscript notes on the margins from page 54 in the first volume and thoughout the second volume. Contemporary calf, rebacked, spine in compartments with raised bands, tooled in gilt, morocco spine label. Engraved bookplate of the Supreme Council, the highest authority of the masonic order of the Scottish rite of Northern America (Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States) on the paste-down (motto "Deus Meumque Jus - Supreme Council 33"). I: A unique collection of six books about the British Israelism doctrine and its founder, Richard Brothers. The doctrine identifies the Anglo-Saxon race with the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, and is based on a literal interpretation of the Old Testament. Apparently England and its colonies must be the Israel to whom the promises were made in the Bible. The first work, The life of Merlin, provides a chronological order of the Kings of England. Because of the strong historical connection of the ancestors of the English with the Ten Lost Tribes, the doctrine includes the principle that the British Royal Family descends directly from the bloodline of King David. The British-Israel movement started with Brothers' publication A revealed knowledge in 1641 but it flourished in the late eighteenth century with the expansion of the British empire interwoven with the expectations of end-time prophecies about to come due. Heywood's Life of Merlin was first published in 1641. The book chronicles all the kings of England from King Brutus, who came from Troy to start a new colony, until Charles I. Heywood proceeds to discuss in great detail the prophecies made by Merlin, focusing on political forecasts. The book was designed primarily "to attract that growing public which, worried and confused by the shadow of the coming troubles, might hope for guidance." Following its publication, a number of other works on prophecies appeared, including the first edition in English of the prophecies of Nostradamus (London, 1672). Heywood (1570- 1641), a prolific playwriter and actor, contributed to Elizabethan and early Jacobean theatre, writing numerous plays, both tragedies and comedies. His masterpiece is generally considered A woman killed with kindness (1607), a tragedy about an adulterous wife and one of the earliest middle-class tragedies. He wrote also prose, pamphlets about contemporary subjects among which An apology for actors (1612) is the most important as it supports the role of actors in society since antiquity. Heywood has been compared with Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon religion (see the transcriber's comments at http://olivercowdery.com/texts/brot1797.htm#comments). II. First edition of the most important work of the founder of Anglo-Israelism. Brothers explains the doctrine, whose principal belief is that the British nation is the true and real Israel of God. He claimed that the Anglo-Saxon race was descended from the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel; that he, himself, was a lineal descendant of David, and the rightful claimant to David's throne. Brothers (1757-1824) was a self-proclaimed prophet born in Newfoundland who lived most of his life in England. In 1793 he declared himself the apostle of a new religion, "the nephew of the Almighty, and prince of the Hebrews, appointed to lead them to the land of Canaan." Brothers had a large following but could not produce the social movement he had intended with his writings. After he predicted the death of the king and the end of monarchy he was arrested for treason in 1795 and confined. His case was brought before Parliament by his ardent disciple, Nathaniel Halhed, a member the House of Commons. Haldhed had Brothers moved to a private asylum rather than prison. In the asylum Brothers wrote prophetic pamphlets, which gained more followers. III. First edition of the speech held in Parliament by Halhed in defense of Brothers and his Anglo Israelism theory. He declared himself as servant and prophet of Brothers. Halhed (1751-1830) was an english Orientalist and philologist. In India (working for East India Company) he translated into english the Gentoo code from a Persian version of the original Sanskrit. His collection of oriental manuscripts was purchased by the British Museum. IV. Second edition of this polemic refusal of Brothers' theory written in response to Halhed's Testimony. The author here defines Halhed as a weak character that has been roped into the persuasions of a man (Brothers) and who has completely misunderstood the sacred scriptures. Horne (1730 -1792) was English churchman, an academic and a writer. His best known work is his Commentary on the Psalms (1771) but he also wrote many pamphlets against antagonists such as Newton, Hume, Adam Smith. V. First edition of this pamphlet written in defense of Brothers by Bryan after he had condemned his work first and later decided to meet Brothers in person to re examine his theory. Originally a Quaker and copper-plate engraver, Bryan went in 1789 with John Wright to join the Society of Illuminés at Avignon where, in that post-Swedenborgian, semi-Masonic group, he received spiritual communications informing him of the coming of a prophet and the imminent millennium. Returning later in the year, Bryan lived in London, and later emigrated to America. He was an acquaintance of Robert Southey. VI. Wright belonged to the Avignon Society, a group of European illuminists active in the late 1780's. Being disappointed with the New Jerusalem Church in London he went to Avignon, where he was told to expect the millennial deliverer of prophecies. Returning from Avignon, Wright later identified Brothers as this promised deliverer and devoted this work to him.

        Ueber die Bildung des Darmkanals im bebrüteten Hühnchen. Uebersetzt und mit einleitenden Abhandlung und Anmerkungen versehen von Johann Friedrich Meckel

      - Two folding engraved plates. 263, [1] pp. 8vo, orig. German marbled boards (extremities with minor wear & rubbing), orig. label on spine. Halle: Renger, 1812. First separate edition and the first edition in German. "One of the acknowledged classics of embryology."Garrison-Morton 471(describing the publication of the Latin original in the journal of the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences in 1768-69). Wolff's description of the formation of the chick's intestine by the rolling inward of the leaf-like layer of the blastoderm was important for proving his theory of epigenesis, and at the same time disproving preformationism. These leaf-like layers were a potent influence in the work of Pander and Baer, who praised this book highly. Wolff's paper was largely ignored until the appearance of this translation into Germany by Meckel, who added a 56-page introduction and notes. "The publication of Meckel's translation of Wolff's treatise on the formation of the intestines of the chick was an event whose importance, in view of the profound influence which this work exerted upon Pander and von Baer, it would be difficult to overestimate."Adelmann, Marcel Malpighi and the Evolution of Embryology, IV, pp. 1652-1702. "It is interesting to note that the facts brought forward by Wolff have never been contradicted, but have been used as a foundation to which numberless morphological embryologists have added facts discovered by themselves."Needham, A History of Embryology, pp. 221-23. In several places Wolff describes the mesonephroi, the renal organs now known as "Wolffian bodies." These descriptions are briefer than the ones in his Theoria Generationis (1759), "but are in some respects a distinct improvement on his earlier accounts" (Adelmann). Very good clean copy. Blind library stamp on title and on p. 259. Inked withdrawn stamp on verso of title and a small hole in blank margin of first plate. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Später wandte er sich auch der Reproduktion von Kunstwerken wie Gemälden, Zeichnungen, Lithografien, Radierungen und Skulpturen zu. Mit der Wiedergabe berühmter Gemälde erlangte er weltweite Bekanntheit. 1869 wurde er eingeladen, die Eröffnung des Suezkanals in Ägypten zu fotografieren. Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt bildete die Landschaftsfotografie mit großformatigen Panorama-Ansichten. Während des Deutsch-Französischen Krieges photographierte er zahlreiche Zerstörungen, besonders an Brücken. Später dokumentierte er den Bau der Gotthardbahn und des Gotthard-Scheiteltunnels, die beide erst fünf Jahre nach seinem Tod fertiggestellt und in Betrieb genommen wurdenVgl. Kurt Zurfluh, Gotthard als die Bahn gebaut wurde, Zürich 1982: "In dieser Zeit der technischen Neuerungen und der politischen Umwälzungen, aus denen ein geeintes Italien und ein mächtiges Deutschland hervorgingen, begann der Elsässer Adolphe Braun, einer der bedeutendsten damaligen Bildchronisten, mit seinerKamera die wohl grösste Baulandschaft ((Bauzeit 1872-1881) Europas auf Glasplatten zu bannen.

Hannah Adams (1755- 1831) was “an early American historian and pioneer in the field of comparative religion, was also the first [female] American author to make a living solely from writing. She was the first historian of religions ever to try to represent sects and denominations in terms which adherents themselves used and from their perspectiveÂ…. During the Revolutionary War one of the boarding students [of her father] gave Adams a copy of Thomas Broughton's An Historical Dictionary of All Religions from the Creation of the World to This Perfect Time, 1742. Reading Broughton ‘awakened my curiosity, Â’ she later wroteÂ….. In 1778 she began to compile a new reference work according to her own rules. She resolved ‘to avoid giving the least preference of one denomination above anotherÂ’ and to present the arguments and sentiments of each sect in believers' own words, according to the group's ‘general collective sense. Â’Â…. In a society whose elite valued education and faith, Adams became a dinner and house-party star Â…. Adams's wide knowledge made her a staple in liberal New England's social whirl. She even enjoyed a two-week stay at the home of her distant cousin, John Adams, second President of the United StatesÂ…..She succeededÂ…through personal relations with the affluentÂ….. Her later works included History of the Jews, 1812Â…. Among short articles on Adams are Conrad C. Wright, "Adams, Hannah, " Notable American Women 1607-1950 (1971) ; Carol Berkin, "Adams, Hannah, " American National Biography (1999) ; and Elizabeth Curtiss, "Hannah Adams: Biographical Sketch, " in Dorothy Emerson, ed. , Standing Before Us (2000) ” (Curtiss in Dictionary of Unitarian & Universalist Biography, 2013) .
