CUVIER, Georges.
BMC NH, p. 409; Nissen, ZBI 1011; Ward 568; Zittel, pp. 135-139; cf. Horblit 20b (ed. 1812). Fourth and most extensive edition of a fundamental classic of vertebrate palaeontology by the French naturalist and zoologist Georges Cuvier (1769-1832), edited by his brother Friedrich Cuvier. "In the whole literature of comparative anatomy and palaeontology there is scarcely any work that can rank with this great masterpiece of Cuvier.""We follow him in his attempts to identify the remains of the fossil mammalian by comparison with existing mammalian species, and we realize with him the necessity of a thorough examination of the bony skeleton of existing mammals before such a comparison can be effected" (Zittel).From the library of the 19th-century Uruguayan homeopath Dr. Juan Christiano d'Korth who set up a practice at Montevideo in 1847. With his name on the spines and library stamps on the title-pages. In very good condition, fly-leafs browned and corners of the bindings slightly bumped.

Alt auf grobes Leinen aufgezogen und die Ränder links und rechts mit grünem Leinen gefaßt. Maßstab ca. 1:2,3 Millionen; Gelände in Schraffen und Schwungstrichen; Siedlungen z. T. in Aufrißsignaturen. Die aus zwölf Haupt- und zwei Supplementblättern bestehende Karte "dürfte gerade rechtzeitig erschienen sein, um es im Zusammenhang mit dem Rußlandfeldzug Napoleons als 'Kriegstheater' anbieten zu können. Diese das Gebiet zwischen Danzig und Tobolsk bzw. zwischen der Kara-Straße und Armenien umfassende Karte stellt, wie es in einer zeitgenössischen Rezension heißt, 'ohne überladen zu sein, [.] alle irgend beträchtlichen Orte, Gebirge, Flüsse, Seen usf. des Russischen Reichs und der angränzenden Theile desselben mit grosser Deutlichkeit dar, und ist allen bisher erschienenen Kriegsschauplätzen, da sie Astrachan und Tobolsk begreift, mit Recht bei ihrer übrigen Vollständigkeit vorzuziehen, da jene oft nicht einmal bis Moskwa gehen, und daher jedem, der die Geschichte des jetzigen Krieges verfolgen will, als ein sehr brauchbares Hülfsmittel zu empfehlen ist'" (Dörflinger II, 463f.). Die beiden unten bzw. rechts jeweils mittig angesetzten Supplemente betreffen das Gebiet um Tobolsk bzw. um Tiflis. - Stellenweise leicht wasserrandig; das Supplement zu Tobolsk stärker knittrig.

LOUDON, John Claudius .
London Harding, 1812. Folio (37.5 x 26.5 cm.), plates watermarked 1808-1817, 105pp., 38 plates and plans comprising 10 hand-coloured aquatints, 4 of these folding, 28 uncoloured line engravings, 2 of these with touches of aquatint, and 5 folding, light soiling plate 5, large folding plate of Tew Lodge with dusty fore-edge and neat archival repairs to edge, modern green half morocco gilt over marbled boards, an excellent example. Loudon's magnum opus beautifully illustrated with fine aquatints and other engravings: a ground-breaking work on agricultural practice and the management of working estates and highly influential in its day. The impact of Loudon's theories were an important factor in the shaping of the English countryside. John Loudon, 'impressed by the inferiority of English to Scottish farming . persuaded his father to join him in taking a lease of Wood Hall, near Pinner [Middlesex], and published [in 1808] a pamphlet entitled An Immediate and Effectual Mode of Raising the Rental of the Landed Property in England. In 1809 he rented the large farm of Tew Park, Oxfordshire, where he took pupils in agriculture, and by 1813 he had made a profit of £15,000.' (DNB). The present work, published at 5 guineas, describes in some detail the improvements carried out at both 'Tew Lodge Farm' and the farm at 'Woodhall', as well as a number of other examples. The fine series of plates are all used to illustrate Loudon's theories and all appear to be after his own drawings: the hand-coloured aquatint views are particularly fine and recall the work of Humphrey Repton, a near conte … [Click Below for Full Description]

Davy Humphrey
Bradford and Inskeep, 1812. First American Edition, same year as the London printing. With 12 plates demonstrating the use of various scientific instruments. 8vo, printer's original paper backed boards, uncut with original paper spine label. xii, 296pp. A very good copy and rare in the original boards, some general wear, particularly to the paper spine, the text with a bit of tanning and foxing, as is typical with this book. A seminal book on physical chemistry. Davy is best remembered for isolating, using electricity, a series of elements for the first time: potassium and sodium in 1807 and calcium, strontium, barium, magnesium and boron the following year. He also discovered the elemental nature of chlorine and iodine. His technique in studying the forces involved in separating these elements invented the new field of 'electrochemistry'. Davy's laboratory assistant, Michael Faraday, went on to enhance Davy's work. Davy often joked that his assistant was his greatest discovery. This copy was purchased with the assistance of Seven Gables Bookshop, with the following pencil note on the front blank, "To Dr. S.A. Canaday Compliments of Mrs. Robert R. Livington with an assist from Seven Gables Bookshop".

Byron, Lord.
London: Printed for John Murray, 32, Fleet-Street; William Blackwood, Edinburgh; and John Cumming, Dublin. By Thomas Davison, White-Friars, 1812. 4to, viii, 226 pp. Facsimile of a Romaic letter bound as frontispiece; lacking advertisements. Full red levant, gilt backstrip with diamond-shaped green morocco onlay, crest with initial B, sides richly gilt tooled with borders and panels and morocco onlays; doublures of green levant, end-leaves of red watered silk, gilt edges, cloth slipcase. Very slight fading to the backstrip, occasional spotting within, a splendid copy. First edition in a handsome binding. Randolph’s second variant with leaf Bb3 (pp. 189-90) in the cancelled state, with the title reading “Written beneath a Picture”, and p. 97, line 11 reading "vengeance forego:". Randolph notes it is doubtful the first variant was every issued as it is probable that leaf Bb3 was cancelled before publication: “It is of interest to note that the copy presented by Byron to Hobhouse on March 24, 1812 is the second variant”. The publication of Cantos I and II of Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage made Byron an overnight celebrity (“I awoke one morning and found myself famous"...). It introduced to the world the Byronic hero: passionate, brooding, arrogant, dissipated -- and completely irresistible. This copy sold at Parke Bernet’s Saul Cohn Sale on October 18, 1955.

MARK, William
No Date Ca.1812. The manuscript occupies the first 100 pages of a small quarto blank book, the paper watermarked 1812, and lists the numerical equivalents of all signals to be sent. The inside front board has watercolours of the 10 numerical flags and a table of contents. The manuscript is thumbindexed by cutting the free fore-edges of each leaf producing a descending alphabetic arrangement of content. Athough there is no name of author, this is definitely by William Mark, having been acquired by us from a direct descendant with other items. William Mark RN (b. Berwick on Tweed 5.3.1782, d. Alhaurin 13.1.1849) served in the Royal Navy on the Boreas (as an ordinary seaman); Hydra (Captain's Clerk;assistant secretary Commodore Bichester); The Victory (Assistant Secretary to Admiral Nelson), as well as the Hacyon; San Juan , leaving the Navy in 1815 at the end of the Napoleonic Wars. From 1824 to 1836 he was the British Consul at Malaga, establishing the English Cemetery there which still exists. This manuscript is an attractive evocation of the period, giving details of communication vital to British naval supremacy in the period.

Pickering, Timothy
Canandaigua: Printed and sold by J.D. Bemis, 1812. 215pp. 12mo. Contemporary calf-backed birch boards, gilt leather label. Binding rubbed, worn at corners. Tear in lower outer corner of pp.97- 98, affecting about twenty words; small tear in extreme lower outer corner of pp.71-72, touching a few letters. Scattered foxing. Very good, in the original binding. In a cloth chemise and slipcase, spine gilt, leather label. The first American edition, following the London edition of the previous year. This book is notable as the first bound book printed in western New York. This copy is especially remarkable for being in its original binding. In this collection of essays Pickering vents his strong anti- Jefferson and anti-Madison opinions, including his views on the Embargo, the circumstances of his dismissal from office by John Adams, and the approaching war with England. After Alexander Hamilton's death, Pickering, who had been the third Secretary of State (under Washington and Adams), and who also represented Massachusetts in the United States House and Senate, became a prominent Federalist spokesman. He was a leader in the movement to have New England secede from the Union (via the Essex Junto and the Hartford Convention) in the years leading up to the War of 1812. The fact that this volume was printed in Canandaigua, in far western New York, in the year of the outbreak of the war, is interesting evidence of the Federalists' attempt to spread their philosophy to the American frontier.

Carey, William
Serampore printed at the Mission-Press, 1812. First edition. 8vo, 21 x 13 cm; pp.iv, 5-99, [1, blank]. Text in English and Punjabi in Gurmukhi characters. Contemporary quarter roan over marbled boards; spine sunned. Ownership inscription of Fabricius Møller to front free endpaper. The first published grammar of Punjabi, printed in Gurmukhi, the script of the Sikh scriptures, the Guru Granth Sahib. The Punjabi of the grammar is that spoken by Sikhs, as the preface makes plain. Carey clearly prepared the text with an eye towards expanding British interests in the Punjab and intended it for use at the College of Fort William, Calcutta. The grammar covers the alphabet, substantives, adjectives, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, and syntax, but is meant only as a simple, accessible introduction. William Carey (1761-1834) was a Baptist missionary and linguistic scholar; inspired by the voyages of Cook, he volunteered to join an early mission to India, arriving in Bengal in 1793. Shortage of funds compelled him to work as the manager of an Indigo factory; he learned Bengali and Hindi and began to preach and translate the Bible. After the East India Company refused permission to settle a small party of missionaries in 1800, Carey, with Joshua Marshman and William Ward, moved to the Danish settlement at Serampore. There they developed a prominent network of Baptist missions; though conversions fell short of expectations, they produced a large number of dictionaries and grammars. Carey himself wrote grammars of Bengali, Bhotia, Marathi, Sanskrit, and Telinga, together with dictionaries of Be … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible. O.T. Psalms. Greek. 1812.
Ex prelo Ricardi Taylor et Socii, 1812. This VERY LARGE letterpress facsimile of the Psalms from the British Museum's Codex Alexandrinus (i.e., Royal 1 D VII, a Septuagint and Greek New Testament) was issued via subscription in paper copies, like the present example, and on vellum -- of this latter, only 17 copies were so issued. The codex dates from the middle of the fifth century and is "probably third in age among the extant Greek Bible manuscripts (after the Vaticanus and Sinaiticus)" according to Doheny. The editor here was Henry Hervey Baber (1775-1869). The Greek type used here was originally cut, in imitation of the Alexandrine uncials, by Joseph Jackson -- a former apprentice of Caslon's -- for Dr. Woide's 1786 edition of the Greek New Testament. "The matrices were deposited in the British Museum and brought into requisition for Baber's work" (Doheny). Roman and another Greek face were used for the introduction and notes. The list of subscribers follows the dedication to Charles Manners Sutton, Archbishop of Canterbury; then come the facsimiles in double-column format and lastly the "Varietates Codicis Alexandrini." Provenance: Bookplate of the Brown-Lindsay Library of the United Presbyterian College; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

John Quincy Adams
He rejects the argument that the British were justified in burning Washington as a retaliation against American misconduct in York, Ontario, and sees a chance that the French firmness in negotiating with the British at Vienna will benefit the United States The U.S. was unprepared for the War of 1812, and the fortunes of war proved vacillating. There were successes, such as William Henry Harrison’s victory in the Battle of the Thames, in which Tecumseh was killed, and Oliver H. Perry’s victory on Lake Erie. But there were also failures, such as a winter expedition against Montreal; also, Fort Niagara was lost, Black Rock and Buffalo were burned, and great quantities of provisions and stores destroyed. The American hope of conquering Canada began to look like a dream, and the threat remained that the British and their Indian allies might yet gain a hold over territory in the American west in order to create an Indian buffer state between the U.S. and the Mississippi River. The British blockade of the U.S. eastern seaboard was constantly growing more rigid; not a single American man-of-war was on the open sea. Meanwhile the discontent with the war prevailing in New England, which was destined to culminate in the Hartford Convention, continued to be active and to threaten rebellious outbreaks. But the most ominous event was the downfall of Napoleon’s prospects, the likely conclusion of peace in Europe, and, in consequence, the liberation of the military, naval, and financial resources of Great Britain for a vigorous prosecution of the war in America.

I have too high an opinion of your sense of justice to have any doubt upon this subject. But the cruel rapacity to which I have fallen a victim, has so far straitened me as to require considerable circumspection in my disbursements. ...

(Anders Hald), which John Herschel called ?the ne plus ultra of mathematical skill and power? (Essays from the Edinburgh and Quarterly Reviews (1857), p. 382). ?In the Théorie Laplace gave a new level of mathematical foundation and development both to probability theory and to mathematical statistics. ? [It] emerged from a long series of slow processes and once established, loomed over the landscape for a century or more.? (Stephen Stigler, Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, pp. 329-30). ?It was the first full?scale study completely devoted to a new specialty, ? [and came] to have the same sort of relation to the later development of probability that, for example, Newton?s Principia Mathematica had to the later science of mechanics? (DSB). ?The Théorie analytique des Probabilités contains, besides an introduction, two books and four supplements: Book I. Du calcul des Fonctions génératrices; Book II. Théorie générale des Probabilités; first supplement, composed in 1816. Sur l?Application du calcul des Probabilités à la philosophie naturelle; second supplement, composed in 1817.

Wool, John E.
1812. Folio sheet, folded to 4pp, about 25 lines of ink manuscript on each pages [1] and [2]. Final leaf is blank. One archivally repaired short closed tear [no loss], Very Good.When he wrote this informative Letter Brigadier General Wool, the Army's Inspector-General, was on official business in Washington. During the course of Wool's long career-- which included service in the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and the Civil War-- he earned a well-deserved reputation as an extraordinarily capable soldier and organizer. Here he brings his friend Baylies current on the feud between President Jackson and his erstwhile supporter, Senator [and former Judge] Hugh White of Tennessee. White, who began his political career as a Jacksonian-- indeed, he succeeded Jackson in the U.S. Senate after Jackson lost the 1824 presidential election-- became disenchanted with Jackson's lust for enhanced presidential power. White then joined Henry Clay and the new Whig opposition party. When White voted against spending three million dollars on fortifications, a measure which Jackson supported, White made a bitter enemy of the President, who vowed to do whatever was necessary to thwart White's presidential bid in 1836.Wool also discusses the status of the French Spoliations negotiation: France had promised to pay the United States an instalment of $25,000,000 but had not yet done so.The complete letter reads as follows:Washington9 March 1835 My Dear Baylies,I received your kind favor from Baltimore and thank you for it.Since you & your agreeable companions left us we have felt very much inclined to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Recent taupe distressed leather, raised bands, brown morocco label. 60 BEAUTIFUL HAND-COLORED PLATES SHOWING 133 DIFFERENT PLANTS, engraved by F. Sansom after Sydenham Edwards. Pritzel 2622; Dunthorne 107; Sitwell, p. 93 (under the title "New Flora Britannica"). Occasional light offset to opposite plates, isolated very minor marginal spotting, but A REALLY EXCELLENT COPY INTERNALLY, the text generally very clean and with ample margins, and the vibrant plates fresh and altogether pleasing, and in a sympathetic modern binding. This is an appealing copy, with very ample margins, of a practical work on flower gardening that features a famous group of fine floral plates by perhaps the leading British botanical illustrator of the time. Sydenham Edwards (1769?-1819) was discovered and trained by William Curtis (1746-99), whose name will always be linked with "The Botanical Magazine," which he founded in 1787 and which was published for nearly 200 years. According to Henrey, Edwards was responsible for "many hundreds" of the "carefully executed" plates in the first 42 volumes of the magazine, which he left in 1815 to establish his own rival publication, "The Botanical Register." The beautiful colored plates in our volumes appeared under three different titles: first in 1807 in McDonald's "A Complete Dictionary of Practical Gardening," and then in 1812 with the title given above as well as the title "The New Flora Britannica."

[WEST, Absalom, Publisher, after John EYRE]
Sydney: Absalom West, 1812. Three engravings, each 275 x 405 mm.; good impressions, each complete with all caption details, each mounted. Three fine and exceedingly rare views from the series published by Absalom West, one of the most fascinating and enigmatic projects of the Macquarie era. The present group comprises three West Views, all based on originals by the artist John Eyre, and including the very first view of the series, depicting the Heads at Botany Bay, as well as a dramatic scene in Cockle Bay (at what would now be the furthest reach of Darling Harbour), and an intriguing scene of Parramatta under heavy development. All are taken from the First Series of Views dated 30 November 1812, although known not to have been actually offered for sale until January 1813.West was a successful emancipist businessman and very well-connected, associating with everyone from William Bligh to John Lewin, and particularly friendly with the artists John Eyre and Richard Browne. West clearly had great vision as a promoter and organiser, able to imagine a vast project which relied equally on the artistic skills of some of his close friends and on the technical ability of the two newly arrived convict artisans who prepared all of the plates, Walter Preston and Philip Slaeger.Although West's Views are much studied, and despite their acknowledged significance in terms of the development of home-grown artistic publishing, they remain something of a mystery. Indeed, on paper, it is difficult to think of a more unlikely project: West, who had only been given his ticket-of leave in 1810 a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rowlandson, Thomas [Illustrator]
J.J. Stockdale, London. 135 pages. 28 x 22 cm. Four engraved hand-colored plates by Rowlandson. John Wolcot was blind by the year 1812, the letter perhaps dictated. "When blindness overtook him, he displayed a stoical good humour which makes us regret that a musical, artistic man, of a `kind and hearty disposition,' played so scurvy a literary role. This work is a prose poem, CHEL. Vol. 11, pp.37-38. Notes, "Pindar's strength lies in his power of realising for his reader a comic situation; polished epigram .He loves to slip one of two sly colloquialisms into verses written in the formal eighteenth century style, and, thus bring out the broad fun of his conceptions." Pindar satirized Dr. Johnson and Boswell as well as George III. Robert Burns received a copy of Pindar's works from George Thomson, and held him in esteem. Not in TOOLEY.Text generally clean, plates bright with offsetting to text. Orig. tan wrappers with front cover paper label bound-in. Four pages of adverts at rear and at wrapper back cover. A few early scribbles on front cover wrapper. Early dark salmon cloth and navy morocco spine lettered in gilt. Teg. Very good [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

AN IMPORTANT WORK, PRAISED BY DE TOCQUEVILLE AND WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT, by one of the first noted American historians and founder of the Massachusetts Historical Society, the first of its type in America. In De Tocqueville's own words, "the reader of Belknap will find more general ideas and more strength of thought, than are to be met with in other American historians, even to the present day". And Bryant credited him with being, "the first to make American history attractive." THE HISTORY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE was the first modern history to be written by an American, and one in which was employed a new rigor in research, annotation, and reporting. Belknap served as a secretary to the convention of New Hampshire ministers from 1769 until 1787. For the position he traveled throughout the state, and begin accumulating notes on the history of New Hampshire.

Boston, 1812. Broadside, 11 x 9 inches. Previously folded. A few small chips at edges. Contemporary manuscript annotations on blank verso, with some iron-gall ink damage, slightly affecting text on recto. Tanning, light dampstaining. Good. An attractive and scare broadside for a bookshop and auction house in Boston, printed in October 1812, four months after the outset of the War of 1812. The shop was operated by a Joseph Bumstead, whose name is signed in print at the foot of the broadside. The advertisement publishes extensive details of terms on offer to prospective booksellers and consignors, proclaiming that, "Booksellers can have that part of their stock which has for years waited in vain for purchasers, turned into cash in hand...on a principle fair and honorable, giving equal satisfaction to purchaser and seller." The handbill also advertises that, "Books, chiefly New-Editions, Bindings Elegant and Plain...can be purchased with out a Cent of Cash, at the lowest Cash Boston prices." On the reverse is some manner of proof for this claim, a manuscript receipt for a copy of Samuel Richardson's CLARISSA, sold for seven dollars plus a forty percent discount. A rare and ephemeral piece, with only one copy located, at the American Antiquarian Society.

Octavo, 2 volumes, bound with issues 13 to 26 in Volume I and issues 27 of 59 in Volume II with a hand colored engraved frontispiece depicting female models in period Parisian costume to each issue. An exceptional piece illustrating an important era in the history of French fashion. One of the earliest French illustrated fashion magazines, Journal Des Dames et Des Modes was created by the bookseller Jean- Baptiste Sell?que in 1797 and acquired in 1801 by Pierre Antoine Leboux of La M?sang?re. The social and political upheaval of the French Revolution created a period break in French fashion, under the Reign of Terror signs of luxury and wealth could be interpreted as a provocation and were suppressed. With the establishment of the Directory in 1795, French fashion saw a revival which was accompanied by the appearance of specialized women's fashion magazines including la M?sang?re and Journal Des Dames et Des Modes. With their most important contents being the full-color fashion engravings included in each publication, the production of such magazines required a large production team including models, sketch artists, etchers, illuminators, and folders.

Paris, impr. Impériale, 1812. pl. basane racinée époque, dos lisse orné, qq. rousseurs sinon bel exemplaire avec en tête un envoi à "M. Benj(amin) Delesser(t) de la part de Son (Excellence) le Ministre des Manufactures" (à l'époque le Comte Collin de Sussy), envoi en partie coupé. Précieuse provenance. Seconde édition augmentée, mais en fait la première destinée à la vente. Comme Parmentier le dit lui-même dans son avertissement, il avait fait édité ce texte une première fois en 1785 mais à si petit nombre que personne n'a pu le lire ! C'est le premier ouvrage consacré au maïs en Europe. Le pharmacien Parmentier est un nutritionniste et un hygiéniste, traitant aussi bien des fécules, que du pain ou du sucre. Il est l'un des créateurs de l'École de boulangerie en France en 1800. C'est aussi grâce à Parmentier que la première raffinerie de sucre de betterave fut mise en service par Delessert en 1801. Benjamin Delessert (1773 - 1847) homme d'affaires, naturaliste et philanthrope, fonde en 1812 une fabrique de sucre de betterave où il introduit des procédés nouveaux. Lors du blocus de la France, c'est Delessert qui, en se basant sur les recherches du chimiste allemand Franz Karl Achard (1753-1821), met au point la méthode d'extraction du sucre à partir de la betterave, méthode qu'il nomme Bonmatin. Vers 1800, il fonde aussi des soupes populaires qui distribuent, durant certains hivers, jusqu'à quatre millions de repas. Il participe en 1818 à la création des Caisses d'épargne et de prévoyance dans l'optique de secourir les plus démunis ; il les dirige durant près de vingt ans et … [Click Below for Full Description]

Text as issued and illustrated with 154 plates of which 81 are hand coloured (69 hand coloured in the first series and 12 hand coloured in the second). All plates complete as listed. Some folding. A most unusual run - a subscribers copy Sir Thomas Grey Cullum, bart. WITH ADDITIONAL INDEXES and numerous lists of subscribers, accounts for years 1823-1827, some letters tipped in from the the secretary of the society and two publications on The Formation of the Garden in Chiswick one dated 1823 and one 1824- both with an engraved plan. Plus some period newspaper cuttings. Most of the additional material is in volumes 5 and 6. FIRST EDITIONS. Bound in full contemporary calf, rather worn with a leather label of a tree at the top of the spines. Some spotting. Sir Thomas Gery Cullum 1741-1831, surgeon, botanist, antiquarian, and writer is buried in the church at Hawstead, Suffolk and the genus of flowering plant, Cullumia, commemorates the contribution of Cullum and his brother. The probable reason why the last two volumes of the second series are not present is Sir Thomas Grey Cullum died in 1831 and he had probably already paid for the first one! The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) was founded in 1804 in London, as the Horticultural Society of London, and gained its present name in a Royal Charter granted in 1861.

NANNINGA, Jan Abrahams.
Bruzelius, p. 104; Cat. NHSM, p. 754; NCC (2 copies); WorldCat (1 copy); cf. Bierens de Haan 3523 (2nd ed.). Corrected second issue of the very rare first edition of a guide to the theory of naval architecture by the former captain, Jan Abrahams Nanninga, at the time of publication city architect of Emden. The book is presented an "instruction for the improvement of ship building" and in the preface Nanninga explains that the emphasis is on the theory of naval architecture and not on the practice of shipbuilding itself. The book was originally published by Evert Maaskamp in Amsterdam in 1812, with numerous errors in the plates and a "crazy and false dedication", much to the to the annoyance of the author. Nanninga took it upon himself to correct the mistakes and supplied improved plates and updated preliminary materials.Preliminaries slightly browned and some spots on the title-page, otherwise in very good condition, untrimmed and almost completely unopened. Spine tattered.

WAR OF 1812
Litchfield County, CT: , 1812. [WAR OF 1812].Document Signed. Litchfield County, Conn. Ca. 1813-1815. [docketed "Support of the War 1812"], 1p.On June 1, 1812 the War of 1812 became the first war declared by the United States. New Englanders derisively called it "Mr. Madison's war" and bemoaned its economic impact, especially in coastal areas, where shipping and fishing had been largely shut down by the British Navy. The conflict was so unpopular in the region that a number of politicians who had supported it were voted out of office in the next election.Nonetheless, much of the funding and many of the troops came from the New England, and some of the conflict's signal naval battles were fought just off the New England coast.This document, signed by eight New Englanders, is evidence of that support. The traceable names, such as Asa Prime, Benjamin Stone, John J. Orton, and Elijah Couch originate in Litchfield County, Connecticut, hailing from towns such as New Milford, Reading, and Kent. Their support is both patriotic and pragmatic: the British depredations suffered by coastal New England residents might have seemed distant to these inland farmers in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut, largely out of British reach.Full transcript"Whereas great pains have been taken to impress the public mind with the idea that the War in which we are engaged with Great Britain, is extensively unpopular, and that it will not be supported by the People of New-England, the undersigned think proper to declare, that while they lament the necessity of a War, they are fixed in … [Click Below for Full Description]
