        The Communicant's Companion

      London - William Baynes, 1813. London - William Baynes, 1813 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A bright copy of this uncommon Presbyterian work by Matthew Henry. Bound in half leather and marbled paper-covered boards, with gilt lettering and spine decoration. A chip to the head of the spine but a bright and useable copy. Henry's reputation as a leading minister of his generation was founded on extraordinarily active evangelical ministry both in the pulpit and in the study. His talent for preaching was matched by willingness to preach whenever requested. In addition to his work with his own congregation, both public and private,The Towns and Villages that lay near to Chester enjoyed a great share of his Labours, there was scarce a Week but he was at one or more of these Places preaching the Gospel (besides his constant Work at home). (Tong, 1845)He also used to take an annual preaching excursion into Staffordshire and latterly into Lancashire as well. He was a strong supporter of the Cheshire classis founded at Macclesfield in March 1691, and a major influence on its affairs after the death of his father. He was much called upon to take part in ordinations. Nevertheless, he was subject to a considerable amount of intimidation and abuse from those hostile to dissent. An attempt was made to burn down his meeting-place in October 1692, and he and his congregation were publicly abused by high-churchmen and subject to petty slanders, particularly in Queen Anne's reign. (DNB)Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The hinges are just starting, and the front inner hinge isstrained. There is mild wear to the extremities, including mildrubbing, with loss to the top of the spine. Internally the pages are generally bright with the occasional spot or handling mark.

        Rokeby: A Poem

      Edinburgh - John Ballantyne, 1813. Edinburgh - John Ballantyne, 1813 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of Scott's epic poem Rokeby. The poem is set just after the Parliamentarian victory at Marston Moor (1644). Prior to the outbreak of war, the Royalist Lord Rokeby has favoured the marriage of his daughter Matilda (in whom some have seen a portrait of Williamina Belsches) with Wilfrid Wycliffe. When Wilfrid's father Oswald, however, joins the rebels, he withdraws his consent. At Marston Moor, Rokeby is consigned as a prisoner to Oswald. Oswald, meanwhile, plans to murder a fellow Parliamentarian Philip, of Mortham, whose vengeance he fears. Critical opinion was broadly favourable, with particularly positive reviews appearing in the Antijacobin Review, British Critic, and Monthly Review. The British Critic's reviewer called it 'pure poetry' and predicted that 'the name of Scott will descend to the latest posterity with those of the most established poets'. There was particular praise for the vigour and variety of Scott's characterizations, though reservations were expressed regarding the coherence of the plot. (WS)With notes on each canto placed after the main poem. Also with six plates (collated complete)and a vignette title page. With half-title. There is a three-page list of Scott's works to the rear, but eight-page publisher's catalogue to the front is not bound in as usual. Watermark of '1810 J. Whatman'. Page 39 is correctly numbered.

      Washington. March 19, 1813.. Washington. March 19, 1813.. 3pp. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Silked on one side. In a half morocco box. A fascinating letter written by Vice President Elbridge Gerry to his son-in-law, Col. James T. Austin, in which he discusses the looming threat of British attack upon the capital during the War of 1812. In March 1813 the British navy blockaded Chesapeake Bay - an ideal target, with access to the nation's capital and points all along the eastern seaboard. Gerry tells Austin that an express has been received from Warburton "with information that the enemy's force below was increasing." He recounts the details of the communiqué: "The express stated, that after he left General Armstrong...he heard about 300 cannon down the river. Whether the object of the enemy is to water, or to alarm, or to land & commit depredations according to circumstances, or to attack this place, must be determined by events. General Van Ness the commanding officer of the District militia has returned, as I am informed, for the purpose of fortifying the river nearer to the navy yard. The city appears to be alarmed, but if I had property here I would not give 1 pr. ct. to insure it." He continues, writing that it will be improper for him and his son to flee the city under the current conditions, "lest it may be construed into apprehensions of danger if we should depart before Congress adjourns." In the postscript he notes that the defense of the City was discussed in a closed-door session of the Senate, providing his correspondent with some Senate humor: "Genl. Varnum stated, that in case of an attack, he would aid in defence, if even as a private. Mr. Dana of Connecticut, a humourist, in answer said, he was also ready, but expected to serve under his proper officer, the President. After the Senate rose, I informed Mr. Dana that I would accept with pleasure the command; & would be careful to place my corps on a most honourable ground. They should not be a corps de reserve." In response to the British blockade, the Americans built a flotilla to defend the Bay; despite the bold statements about defense and honor, however, the defense of Washington was a complete failure. In retaliation for the burning of York (Toronto) by the Americans in April 1813, the British burned Washington in August 1814. The American flotilla was powerless to stop the British marching through the capital, burning as they went, before moving on to attack Baltimore. Elbridge Gerry served in the Continental Congress and was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was an early and vigorous advocate of American Independence, and played a crucial role in the formation of the new United States government, insisting on a bill of rights being added to the new constitution. "Gerry warned that the Constitution would not be ratified without a bill of rights, and he proved to be right. Massachusetts accepted the document, but only with the strong recommendation that a bill of rights be added. Several other states followed suit, and the Constitution was ratified but only with these provisos. Gerry staunchly supported the new government, helped to frame the Bill of Rights, and served as congressman from 1789 to 1793" - ANB. His name is perhaps most remembered, however ignominiously, in connection with the term "gerrymandering." In his second term as governor of Massachusetts, Gerry redrew district lines to consolidate his party's control in the state senate. "The shape of one electoral district on the map resembled a salamander, and one wit promptly dubbed it a 'Gerrymander.' Hence, the term used today when redistricting results in a concentration of the strength of one political party and a weakening of its opponent's strength" - ANB. Though this was not necessarily a new practice, the name stuck. Gerry ran on the ticket with President Madison in 1812, for Madison's second term as president, and died in office in November 1814, mere months after the capital was burnt to the ground.

In two volumes. Translated from the original German By Richard Belgrave Hoppner, Esq.

      London: printed by C. Roworth (I) and T. Davison (II); for John, Murray, bookseller to the Admiralty, and the Board of Longitude, 50 Albermarle-Street, 1813 1813 - 2 vol. in-4° (278 x 212 mm.) : de xxxii, [4], 314 pp. ; [10], 404 pp. 2 planches gravés et aquarellés, 1 carte dépliante. Plein veau blond, dos à cinq nerfs orné, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge, double filet doré d'encadrement des plats, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches jaspées, gardes de papier marbré. (Dos et coupes refaits, gardes modernes). Première édition de la traduction anglaise de la première circumnavigation russe. L’édition originale fut publiée en allemand à Saint Petersburg en 1812 sous le titre « Reise um die Welt. » Cette expédition fut conduite par le capitaine Ivan Féodorovitch Krusenstern (1770-1846) de 1803 à 1806. Ordonnée par le Tsar Alexandre Ier, elle avait pour mission l’exploration de l’Amérique russe (principalement l’Alaska) et de la partie septentrionale de l’Asie, ainsi que le rétablissement des relations diplomatiques et commerciales avec le Japon. Avec cette campagne, la Russie s’inscrit pour la première fois dans l’Histoire des Grandes Explorations, utilisant sa Marin et ses officiers comme l’instrument déterminant pour réaliser des progrès scientifiques et asseoir sa position diplomatique et commerciale à l’échelle mondiale. Ivan Féodorovitch Krusenstern servit dans la Marine anglaise de 1793 à 1799, participant à des campagnes commerciales en Orient et Extrême-Orient. Il rédigea un mémoire sur les avantages que la Russie pourrait tirer d’une navigation de l’Alaska à la Chine pour le commerce des peaux. Ce texte passa inaperçu sous Paul Ier, mais attira l’attention des ministres d’Alexandre Ier sensibilisés à la question par Nikolaï Rezanov (1764-1807) qui occupait une place importante dans la Compagnie Russe-Américaine des fourrures. Souhaitant créer une structure similaire et qui jouirait des mêmes privilèges que la Compagnie des Indes britannique, Rezanov avait obtenu de Catherine II qu’elle négocie l’exclusivité du commerce des fourrures pour la Russie à Canton, et fit ratifier à Paul Ier la charte qui garantissait à la Compagnie pour 20 ans, le monopole du commerce sur les côtes du Nord-ouest américain, du Kamtchatka et des îles de la Mer de Béring. Krusenstern fut nommé capitaine de la Marine impériale pour diriger cette expédition scientifique et commerciale, composée de l’élite des marins et des scientifiques russes. Participent notamment à cette circumnavigation le capitaine Lissianski, Tilesius von Tilenau et Langsdorff (naturalistes), Horner (astronome), et Kotzebue. Rezanov, qui voyagea sur la Nadejda, était le premier ambassadeur russe pour le Japon. Tous ces officiers et ces savants avaient été bercés par les relations des grands explorateurs européens et comptaient bien inscrire la Russie dans cette histoire. Les deux bateaux qui composaient l’expédition la Neva et Nadejda étaient d’anciens bâtiments anglais. Partie de Cronstadt, l’expédition s’arrêta en Angleterre avant de gagner le Brésil via les Canaries, et après avoir passé le Cap Horn, les deux bateaux gagnèrent les Marquises (où ils installèrent un port à Nuku Hiva) puis les îles Sandwich où ils se séparèrent. Lissianski partit explorer les côtes américaines, tandis que Krusenstern se rendait au Japon en passant par le Kamtchatka. L’Ambassade japonaise fut un échec complet. L’équipage et l’ambassadeur furent retenus à bord pendant six mois, les armes et la poudre ayant été confisquées et Rezanov reçut de l’Empereur du Japon un refus significatif de renouer toute relation avec la Russie. Krusenstern prit alors la route du Nord, il gagna le Détroit de La Pérouse, et explora Sakhaline, les Kouriles et le Kamtchatka, le nord de la Tartarie et l’embouchure du fleuve Amour, rapportant sur ces zones mal connues des informations importantes sur l’hydrographie, l’histoire naturelle, l’ethnographie, linguistique et la géographie. La Nadejda retourna à Petropavlovsk où était descendu Rezanov qui y avait trouvé des ordres lui demandant de rester dans les colonies russes comme inspecteur général et plénipotenti

        John Adams Champions the U.S. Navy During the War of 1812

      1813 - Autograph Letter Signed, to William Jones, Quincy, [Mass.], April 24, 1813. 1 1/4 pp. 9 7/8" x 7 3/4" The "Father of the American Navy" congratulates the Secretary of the Navy on his recent appointment, recommends a future rear admiral, and encourages publication of an American naval history as "beneficial to the Interest, the Safety, the Independence the Honour Power and Glory of [the]Country." Though Adams disclaims "any Pride or Vanity" in his role in the creation of the Navy, he was still actively promoting the often neglected branch of the service. Transcript Quincy April 24. 1813Dear Sir As it ever has been, and forever ought to be, a general Rule of The Presidents and Heads of Departments not to answer Letters soliciting or recommending Appointments to Office: the Exception to the general Rule by your kind Letter of the 13th of this month,[1] lays me under a particular obligation.The Reason you assign is perfectly satisfactory to me: and I rejoice in it, as it proves the good sense and generous Feelings of our American young Men, which have animated such Numbers, to sollicit the Post of dangerCommodore Rodgers has accepted young Marston as a volunteer, and he is now on Board the President below the Castle, ready I presume for Sea as soon as Winds and Circumstances will permitFar be from me, any Pride or Vanity, in the recollection of any share I have taken in the Institution of Our American Navy: I am ashamed when I look back and recollect how little I have done said or written in favour of this Essential Arm for the defence of our Country. I know it to be the astonishment of every Man of Sense in Europe that we have neglected it so long. In my opinion a compleat History of our military Marine ought to be written, from the Law of Congress in October 1775 and the Law of Massachusetts in November 1775 to the present hour. Congress could not appropriate Money, to a purpose more beneficial to the Interest, the Safety, the Independence the Honour Power and Glory of their Country, if they should devote to a Man of Letters, who would undertake the Work, four times as large a sum as the Dutchess of Marlborough bequeathes for the [2] Biography of her Husband.I rejoice in the appointment to the Head of the naval Department, of a Gentleman who is represented to me, to be so well qualified and so well disposed to promote the Service. With much respect, I am Sir your Sincere and obliged Servant John AdamsThe Honourable William JonesSecretary of the Naval Department.Historical BackgroundJohn Adams's statement that he could not take "any Pride or Vanity . in the Institution of Our American Navy," having done too little for "this Essential Arm for the defence of our Country" reflects an uncharacteristic bit of modesty. For good reason, Adams has often been called the "Father of the American Navy." At the outset of the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress hoped that a small naval force could help offset the uncontested exercise of British sea power. The founding legislation, championed by Adams, was passed in October of 1775. It called for fitting out armed vessels for national service, as well as the creation of a Marine Committee to oversee naval affairs. Adams was one of the three original committee members. Before the year was out, again in large part due to Adams's lobbying, Congress authorized the construction of a small fleet. Adams then drafted the first regulations for the American Navy, adopted on November 28, 1775. (The other measure he mentions here, passed by Massachusetts in early November of 1775, authorized the issuance of letters of marque and created a board of admiralty to adjudicate the disposition of captured prizes.)As president, Adams went on to strengthen the American fleet during the Quasi-War with France, establish a Department of the Navy, and push through an act authorizing a peacetime naval force. His actions stood in marked contrast to those of his successor. T. (See website for full description)

Taylor (1769- 1815) attended the College of William and Mary, entered private practice in 1795, and served in the Virginia House of Delegates from 1795 until 1801 when he was appointed U.S. Circuit Judge for the 4th Circuit. And, almost certainly it was Taylor - rather than Henry Lee - who co-authored the Federalist Minority Report with John Marshall on the Alien and Sedition Acts in the Virginia House of Delegates in 1799. According to the "Commissioner's Report on the Estate of George Washington, 1 July 1811," Bushrod Washington sold land from his uncle's estate to "the late Col. Thomas Lee," guardian of his late brother Corbin Washington's children, for the sum of $15,125, "which purchase their present guardian did not think himself at liberty to confirm." In the absence of payment, Bushrod Washington, believing himself the rightful owner, apparently intended to sell the land or had already done so. Taylor expresses here that he think that the court will order the profits to be turned over to Col. Lee's successor, against whom Washington had filed suit, but that Washington will be allowed to retain the full amount of the original selling price. Taylor apologizes for being so slow to reply, and agrees to represent Washington if he has not already retained the services of someone else. "I have no doubt the chancellor will grant an argument in your behalf." However, he also has no doubt that "you must experience in court the usual treatment of trustees acting lawfully and bona fide; and that consequently while we will be liable for the net profits of the would be an outrage on all the principles hitherto entertained by the courts of equity, to subject you to anything more." While attending the circuit court of appeals, Taylor anticipates he will have "ample leisure" to review the case.

        Pedestrianism; or an Account of the Celebrated Performances of Celebrated Pedestrians During the Last and Present Century; with a Full Narrative of Captain Barclay?s Public and Private Marches; and an Essay on Training

      Aberdeen: Printed by D. Chambers & Co. , 1813. Copper engraved frontispiece, 8vo 8 ¼ x 5 ¼ 286 pp. 19th century ¾ gilt-ruled straight-grained morocco & marbled boards, spine ruled & lettered in gilt, raised bands. Some rubbing to joints and extremities; top hinge weak, light offset to title from frontispiece, partially eradicated ink signature at top of frontispiece and some light foxing, else very good. The first and probably only edition of this work. Lovesey and Macnab assert this is probably the first book on competitive athletics. ?Barclay?s training methods were to influence athletics training for over a century? L&M. While L&M could be correct about this work?s role in the evolution of competitive athletics, a couple of earlier works on boxing should probably be considered. Nevertheless, this is quite a unique book. Includes accounts of his various walking matches and wagers, including 1000 miles in 1000 hours for 1000 guineas. There appears to be much competitive activity at this time, as there are a ranking list of walking races of the 18th and 19th centuries (see chapter three). His advice on training includes diet and dress and there are reports of shorter running races as well as walking. Walter Thom (1770-1824), who also wrote a history of Aberdeen, was the father of Alexander Thom, founder of Thom?s Almanac.

      Lipsiae (Leipzig): F.C.G. Vogelii, 1813. Lipsiae (Leipzig): F.C.G. Vogelii, 1813. First Edition. Quarter-Leather & Original Boards. Fine. First Edition. Octavo, finely rebound in quarter mottled calf over the original paste paper boards, the spine with raised bands and decorations within the compartments, gilt tooled title label, all done in period style by The Byzantium Bindery. xvi, 388pp, [4] pp publisher&#39;s catalogue at rear. Facing Greek and Latin texts with commentary. Old number in ink on title leaf; a nearly fine copy in a pleasing binding. ¶ Iamblichus (ca. 245 - ca. 325,) was known as a magician and a Neoplatonist philosopher. He studied under Porphyry, a pupil of Plotinus, the founder of Neoplatonism. It was with Porphyry that Iamblichus had a falling-out over his ideas on the practice of Thuergy, or what we would today call Ceremonial Magic; in his book &#39;De Mysteriis Aegyptiorum&#39; he makes his defense and explanation of his theories of Thuergy and Magic. In his &#39;Exhortation to Philosophy&#39; a compelling, didactic work, we find elements of a subtle Hellenistic program of evangelization aimed at winning souls over to the cause of Philosophy. The result is an elegant compendium of Pythagorean and Platonic dogmas, which together provide the basis for a set of practical and moral instructions that purport to purify the soul / intellect and prepare it for the divine and theoretical sciences, which alone form the medium for the soul&#39;s unification with the highest Good at the summit of Being. It was commonplace in Iamblichus&#39; day for ecclesiastics to compose large, scathing pedagogical works, which execrated and condemned the pagan tradition he loved, so Iamblichus promptly followed suit with his &#39;Exhortation&#39;; although wisely without making an overt assault upon the Christian faith. The &#39;Exhortation&#39; is animated with the impassioned convictions of a visionary, a sage, and philosophic doctrinaire, whose magnanimity and concern for the individual soul is utterly noble and unselfish. (Excerpted from a review of the Phanes Press edition).

Braune Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf rotem und grünem Rückenschild sowie goldgeprägten Ornamentbändern und Stempelverzierungen. Buchdeckel in hellbrauner Marmorierung und mit Lederecken. Grün eingefärbter Buchschnitt. XX, 636, XVI, LI, 680 S. Mit 9 ausfaltbaren Kupfertafeln, davon 7 handkoloriert und vom Autor handsigniert. With 9 (7 handcolored) engraved plates, each signed by the autor. Wissenschaftliches Hauptwerk des Wiener Augenarztes und Begründers der Ophthalmologie als Wissenschaftsdisziplin. Beer erwarb sich schon als im jugendlichen Alter als Zeichner und Demonstrator am Institut des Augenarztes und Anatomen Joseph Barth erste wissenschaftliche Meriten. Nach Studium und Habilitation (1802) avancierte er rasch zum führenden wissenschaftlichen Lehrer auf dem noch jungen Gebiet der Augenheilkunde. 1812 erhielt er den ersten Wiener Lehrstuhl für Ophthalmologie. Unter Beers Einfluß entwickelte sich dieses Fach von einem Teilgebiet der Chirurgie zu einer eigenständigen medizinischen Wissenschaft. Dabei verband Beer wissenschaftliche Virtuosität mit einem ausgeprägten zeichnerisch-gestalterischen Talent; die von ihm gefertigten Schaubilder und Illustrationen schmücken zahlreiche augenheilkundliche Lehrbücher des 19. Jahrhunderts (vgl. D. v. Engehardt: Biographische Enzyklopädie deutschsprachiger Mediziner, München 2002, Bd. 1, S. 40 f.).. Sehr gutes vollständiges Exemplar des überaus seltenen Werkes. Die Bände entstammen ursprünglich der Bibliothek des Universitätshospitals Zürich. Bibliotheksstempel auf ersten Seiten partiell geschwärzt. Bei Bd. 1 Gelenke fachmännisch instandgesetzt (Buchrücken hier etwas dunkler). Beide Bände ansonsten in sehr gutem, unversehrtem Zustand. Auch innen sehr gutes Exemplar; Seiten frisch wirkend und lediglich partiell leicht fleckig. Die Kupfertafeln in erstklassigem Zustand. In toto sehr gutes Exemplar des wissenschaftshistorisch bedeutenden, im Besonderen auch für seine Illustrationen berühmten Werkes. Als Original-Halbleder-Ausgabe sonst nirgends mehr erhältlich.

      New Brunswick (NJ), 1813. b/w frontis. 12mo. (5), 6-244 pp. First book edition of Washington Irving&#146;s biography of one of our early Naval heroes. (Lawrence&#146;s dying words, as quoted by Irving were, &#147;Don&#146;t surrender the ship!&#148;) This is an interesting variant of a scarce naval (and Washington Irving) item. The bibliographies call for the book to have 244 pages, the final four of which are two poems by Francis Arden memorializing Lawrence. However, at the beginning of the poems there is a notice from the publisher stating that the printing and binding were well along when the Arden poems were received so the presses were stopped until the poems could be added. This is a copy that was bound and released before the poems arrived, making it even more unusual. Howes I-82 (an &#147;aa&#148; rating). See BAL 10101 for the Irving attribution.

On pp. 1-3 the authors list the offenses committed by José Fernando Abascal, viceroy of Peru, who had invaded southern Peru in early 1813 and was aided by Chileans who favored royal rule over independence.The @Manifiesto is addressed to the prince regent of Portugal, the king of Great Britain, and Lord Strangford.

        Die letzten Gründe von Recht, Staat und Strafe philosophisch und nach den Gesetzen der merkwürdigsten Völker rechtshistorisch entwickelt.

      Gießen, bey Heyer, 1813.. 8vo. 9 Bll., 590 S. Zeitgenössischer Pappband. (mit schönem Rotschnitt, Papier leicht stockfleckig).. Erste Ausgbe. - Wichtigster und auch populärster liberaler Jurist im 19. Jahrhundert. Durch sein Auftreten im badischen Landtag (1833-1848) und vor allem durch sein Wirken im Paulskirchenparlament erlangte Welcker (1790-1868) ausserordentliche Popularität. Sein Engagement entwickelte sich bald mehr auf dem praktisch-politischen Feld als in der Herausgabe wissenschaftlicheer Literatur. Grosse Bedeutung erlangte diese programmatische Frühschrift, in der er das Vernunftrecht gegen die immer dominanter werdende historische Rechtsschule von Savigny und vor allem gegen Hegel verteidigte. Welcker sah im Vernunftrecht die natürliche Verbindung historischer, politisch-pragmatischer und vernunftrechtlicher Argmente. Das Vernunftrecht sichert die wahre Freiheit und die sittliche Selbstbestimmung des Menschen. In diesem Sinne nimmt Welcker in diesem Werk eine umfassende Straftheorie, die sowohl philosophisch als auch rechtshistorisch begründet ist.
