        A parody on an original letter, from a certain personage to a bishop [Taken from the Examiner of March 8, 1812 ]

      Holborn: J. Duncombe, Jun, 1812.

A satire featuring Lady Hertford scantily dressed and peering over the Prince Regent as he writes a letter--presumably to The Duke of York concerning the choice of his Ministers.

        CODE NAPOLEON - CODE CIVIL 1812 Relie CUIR D EPOQUE

      Le Prieur Paris 1812 - CODE NAPOLEON 1812 (-« CODE CIVIL DES FRANCAIS » DEVENU « CODE NAPOLEON » EN 1807-) CONFORME A L’EDITION ORIGINALE DE L’IMPRIMERIE IMPERIALE AUQUEL ON A AJOUTE LES LOIS TRANSITOIRES ET UNE TABLE ANALYTIQUE ET RAISONNEE DES MATIERES Et le tableau des distances de Paris à tous les chefs lieux des départemens A PARIS, LE PRIEUR, Libraire, rue des Noyers, N°45, 1812 FORMAT IN-18° ( 17,5 cm x 11 cm) , RELIE PELIN CUIR D'EPOQUE , 508 PAGES A peine investi du pouvoir consulaire, BONAPARTE signait le 24 thermidor AN VIII un arrêté nommant une commission de quatre membres chargée d’étudier les travaux antérieurs et de rédiger un projet de Code Civil. Deux juristes du Nord connaissant bien le droit coutumier français: TRONCHET et BIGOT de PREAMENEU, et deux juristes du Midi, spécialistes du droit romain: MALLEVILLE et PORTALIS (qui présenta le projet dans un discours préliminaire resté célèbre. Établi avec rapidité le projet fut prêt en quatre mois. Conformément à la Constitution l’avant projet et les observations des tribunaux de Cassation et d’Appel furent étudiés par le Conseil d’État ou le Premier Consul BONAPARTE prit part aux délibérations. Il est certain que par son énergie il a grandement activé le travail des juristes. Il a surpris aussi par ses remarques judicieuses les techniciens les plus chevronnés. Le rôle du Second Consul, CAMBACERES, éminent juriste auteur des trois tentatives antérieures et infructueuses de codification, doit être relevé. Présenté au Tribunat épuré le projet est voté avec une assez grande rapidité: 36 lois sont adoptées puis réunies en un corps unique sous le nom de « CODE CIVIL DES FRANCAIS » par la Loi du 30 ventôse AN XII (21 mars 1804). Pour PORTALIS ce Code Civil réalise une « transaction entre le droit romain et les coutumes, toutes les fois qu’il a été possible de concilier leurs dispositions sans rompre les unités du système ». Les rédacteurs du Code ont aussi retenu les acquis de la Révolution bourgeoise de 1789 à 1791 en rejetant les lois extrêmes votées entre 1792 et 1795, « Vains sophismes démentis par l’évidence ». Si le plan du Code Civil a fait l’objet de quelques critiques, le style est en revanche remarquable, précis et dépouillé. Dans son esprit le Code Civil est « napoléonien » , réglant toutes les questions intéressant l’individu et la famille: naissance, mariage, divorce, partage, successions décès, restaurant dans son intégralité la cohésion de la famille légitime, démantelée par les lois révolutionnaires montagnardes, et l’autorité du père et du mari, chefs de famille. « Bourgeois », le Code Civil mentionne également la propriété comme un droit inviolable et sacré avec le secret désir de protéger les acquéreurs de biens nationaux, mais aussi de pouvoir aménager le droit de propriété par l’intervention de la Loi ou du Règlement. Autre hommage du législateur napoléonien à la liberté individuelle de l’homme, la reconnaissance officielle de l’autonomie de la liberté dans la rédaction des contrats. Le Code Civil est révolutionnaire en ce qu’il consacre l’égalité devant la loi, la liberté de conscience et la liberté du travail, la laïcité de l’État. Véritable compromis entre les anciennes coutumes de l‘Ancien Régime, le droit romain et le droit révolutionnaire, le Code Civil des Français de 1804 ( devenu et intitulé de 1807 à 1814 Code NAPOLEON dans l‘Empire Français) est le « monument central ou le juriste moderne est sans cesse ramené ». Maintenu sans grands changements, sauf la suppression du divorce, jusque vers les années 1880, le Code Civil a subi depuis cette date de multiples replâtrages pour tenir compte des profondes modifications de la société mais il n’a pas encore été touché à la structure générale. Un témoignage de la valeur du Code Civil est donné par l’influence qu’il a exercé à l’étranger ou les conquêtes napoléoniennes l’avaient « exporté » dans les pays occupés par la Grande Armée: En Rhénanie il s’est maintenu jusqu’à la fin du XIX° siècle; en Belgique et au Luxembou [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

Prices and buyers are occasionally inked in a contemporary hand. A note on the verso of the f.f.e.p., presumably by Peter Isaac, reads "given me by W.A. Jackson." "A new era in British book-collecting may be said to start with the Roxburghe sale (1812). For the first time in the history of bibliophily, the four- figure limit was reached in an auction sale for a single printed book. From being the hobby of a scholar or the whim of an eccentric commoner, the collecting of rare books became, once more, as in Harley's and Sunderland's days, the favourite pastime of the wealthy nobleman...John, third Duke of Roxburghe (1740-1804), had found in the family library a certain number of valuable books...Round this nucleus he built a handsome and extensive library... mainly devoted to incunabula, French chivalry- romances, early English and Italian literature, Shakespeare and the drama. The sale was a most sensational affair and the total of £23,341 was an extraordinary one for the time. Dibdin has scribbled reams of enthusiastic literature on the smallest incident of each daily session" (De Ricci, English Collectors of Books & Manuscripts 1530-1930, pp 71-72).

        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.

        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.
