        Autograph Letter Signed (ALS), datelined at Edgeworth's Town, Sept. 20, 1813, to a Mrs. Miles

      Original manuscript. Three pages, 12mo. In part: Thanks the recipient for her letter and for "the readiness with which you have executed my various troublesome commissions. I think I had better wait until I see the things before I send you a draft for the amount of the bills..Tell Mr. Miles that Mrs. E. thanks him for paying the L1-16-0 to Miss Sorrell..Do you know whether she has made my gown with a train or not. If she has not I think I must trouble you to buy me another yard & 1/4, as trains might come into fashion before my gown is gone & I might find it impossible as you say to match the color..The grateful smell of the Padre tea is now perfuming the room..The glass bowl has a piece broken out of the edge..Mr. E. thinks Vancouver's glue can set it all to rights. Please don't let Mr. Miles ride tumble-down horses..Yours sincerely, Maria Edgeworth." Remnants of seal. Upper corner worn away from final leaf with loss of two words; repairable separation at one fold. 8" x 4.75". Good . Irish writer and early feminist.

        La Voz de la Libertad Levantada por un Patriota con Ocasion de la Victoria Ganada por las Armas de la Patria contra las tropas del parricida Goyeneche en las cercanas de Salta.

Though Zinny and others attributed this to the newspaper editor Funes, Furlong makes a reasonable case that someone else penned this cry of victory over Goyeneche near Salta: "Que podamos expirar los ultrajes de trescientos anos! Que podamos con una legislacion sabia hacer ver a nuestros antiguos duenos y a todos los pueblos de la tierra, el medio de perpetuar la felicidad individual, y la prosperidad constante del estado! Esto es que os desea, compatriotas." OCLC shows 4 copies: JCB, Berkeley, NYPL, BN Chile A very good untrimmed copy, ink spot on margin, minor edgewear, leaves browned.

        A Catalogue of Books in the Library of Christopher D. Bellew Esq. Mount-Bellew. Only 15 Copies have been Printed

      [:taken from the printed label on the upper cover]. 64 pp. Tall narrow folio, orig. paper-backed boards (tear to upper wrapper well-repaired by backing the wrapper), printed label on upper cover. [Galway: Printed by G. Conolly, 1813]. Limited to 15 copies only of this famously rare catalogue of an equally famous library, one of the most remarkable discoveries in the history of 20th century bibliophily. We cannot resist quoting at length from Michael Sadleir's breathless "Passages from the Autobiography of a Bibliomaniac" in his XIX Century Fiction (1951), pp. xx-xxi-"The second major event of this period (actually the latest in date) was the discovery in the West of Ireland of the fabulous board-and-label library at Mount Bellew...My record shall therefore begin when in May 1933 the first MacManus catalogue of Bellew books reached this country...The library, formed between 1800 and 1830, was a very large one and with certain exceptions of earlier date, consisted mainly of books published between 1770 and 1830... "I shall never forget the arrival by post of the first slim Bellew catalogue. After tearing through the catalogue's eight pages, I felt so breathless that I had to sit a few moments before I was capable of going through the whole thing item by item. I made pencil-crosses; I drafted a long telegram. Then I commended my cause to providence and went through the catalogue all over again... "Here are some sentences from a preface which MacManus included in his third or fourth Bellew selection: Books in Boards At the beginning of the Nineteenth Century there lived in an old mansion in a remote part of the western Irish seaboard a man whose hobby was book-collecting. Disdaining the fox-hunting tradition of his family and class he devoted his days to literary pursuits and the acquisition of a library. He stored his books in specially-constructed cupboards, dust-proof and damp-proof. Many of them he did not live to read, but even those which he read suffered nothing in the process. When he died, the fox-hunting tradition prevailed once more, and the books, safe behind locked doors, were forgotten for a century. Here is a wide range of uncommon and attractive volumes, offered in a condition so dazzlingly fine that by their very appearance they will lend distinction to the bookshelves of the most fastidious collector. "Not one word of over-statement do these paragraphs contain. Indeed it would hardly be possible to over-state the perfection of Bellew condition or the excitement of those Bellew days, with parcels from Dublin trickling in and immaculate treasures slowly encumbering my table. Long before the residue of the huge library had been liquidated I went to Dublin at MacManus' invitation and spent happy hours in a warehouse above a furniture shop, where faultless Bellew volumes of every size and kind lay in piles, overflowed from bureau drawers, stood close-ranked in shelves. Some were books of extreme dullness; some were books about which nothing was known; some were precisely the sort of scarce but unreputed trifles which I delight to find. But all -- literally all -- were crisp and radiant, with labels dead white and perfect, with spines sound and round and flawless at the hinge, with strawboards clear-cut and fore-edges sinuous and sharp. The opening up of the Bellew Library was surely one of the peak moments in the history of modern book-collecting. It is one privilege to have been alive when it happened, and another to have enjoyed the friendship of the man most concerned and therefore to have been among the earliest to hear the news. In Mount Bellew MacManus found a few copies of a private folio catalogue of which fifteen copies were printed for Christopher Bellew in 1813 (that is to say, about half-way through his collecting life)." A fine copy preserved in a box. WorldCat locates the following copies only: Grolier, British Library, and National Library of Ireland. I sold another copy, twenty years ago, to Keio University. .

        Beobachtungen des zweyten Cometen vom Jahre 1813 angestellt auf der Sternwarte zu Göttingen nebst einigen Bemerkungen über die Berechnung parabolischer Bahnen

      15 pp. 8vo, orig. blue wrappers. Gotha: 1813. First separate edition, the text originally appeared in Latin in the journal Comment. recent. Soc. Gott., II (1811-13). This is an important and precious copy, coming from Gauss's own library. It bears the stamp "Gauss-Bibliothek" on title and upper wrapper. This paper was written during the period when Gauss was making the transition from mathematician to astronomer and physical scientist. On the 3rd of April of 1813, Gauss's colleague Carl Ludwig Harding (1765-1834), professor of practical astronomy at Göttingen, discovered the so-called "Comet 1813 II." Gauss was notified and observed the comet himself on the 7th. The text contains Gauss's observations and calculations regarding the comet's path. Fine copy and rare. With the stamp of the Royal Observatory at Göttingen on first blank leaf (with facing release stamp) and title. ❧ Poggendorff, I, 854-57. For Harding, see D.S.B., VI, p. 112. .

        Dictionnaire chinois, francais et latin, publie d'apres l'ordre de sa Majeste l'Empereur et Roi Napoleon le Grand

      Landmark Chinese dictionary commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte, from the Dukes de Luynes library. 1813. Paris. Imprimerie Imperiale. Thick folio (435 mm x 279 mm). Contemporary calf, boards with gilt fillet, raised bands to spine, with red morocco lettered piece, tooled and lettered in gilt; hinges starting, chipping to head of spine. An excellent copy; large and crisp.First edition. Napoleon Bonaparte commissioned Guignes? dictionary in 1808; this monumental production includes thousands of Chinese characters (actually carved in the 18th century) and was printed on heavy laid paper. The dictionary was ground breaking and demonstrated a remarkable growing interest on China; it was largely an editing of the compilation made by Franciscan missionary in China Basilio de Glemona Brollo (1648 ? 1704), in the 17th century; this lack of originality gained Guignes strong criticism at the time. However, the dictionary is still regarded as one of the best ever prepared, also, it is of considerable artistic beauty.Guignes (1759 ? 1845) lived in China for 17 years and performed as translator for the Dutch Ambassador at the Qianlong Emperor?s court from 1794-1795, he was also author of another important work on China "Voyages a Peking, Manille et L?Ile de France". Despite of the unwelcoming reception of his dictionary, he is recognized as a famed Sinologist. Provenance: Library of the Dukes de Luynes, Chateau de Dampierre.Cordier, 1589. Brunet, II, 568.

        BIOGRAPHY OF JAMES LAWRENCE, ESQ. LATE A CAPTAIN IN THE NAVY OF THE UNITED STATES: TOGETHER WITH A COLLECTION OF THE MOST INTERESTING PAPERS, RELATIVE TO THE ACTION BETWEEN THE CHESAPEAKE AND SHANNON, AND THE DEATH OF CAPTAIN LAWRENCE, &c., &c. EMBELLISHED WITH A LIKENESS

      New Brunswick (NJ)., 1813.. b/w frontis. First book edition of Washington Irving’s biography of one of our early Naval heroes. (Lawrence’s dying words, as quoted by Irving were, “Don’t surrender the ship!”) 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 “aa” rating). See BAL 10101 for the Irving attribution. Bound in old calf, rebacked, with red spine label.

Cook was accompanied on his voyages by many scientists and artists, including botanists Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander, and artists Sydney Parkinson and John Webber. The 10 years of Cook's three great voyages are well documented in his comprehensive logs and journals, where Cook detailed where he went, what he saw and who he met. --- ***FREE Domestic Shipping ***

        Swensk literatur-tidning, utgifwen i Stockholm och Upsala 1813-24. Uppsala, Stenhammar och Palmblad respektive Zeipel och Palmblad respektive Palmblad & c.,

      1813-25. 4:o. Kollationering finns. Tolv häftade volymer i samtida gråpappomslag respektive nära samtida blå pappbd. De lätt nötta banden med handskrivna gula pappersetiketter. Ryggen till årgång 1815 med ett par maskhål och två små revor upptill. Inlagorna delvis oskurna och ouppskurna. En del blad med spår av vikning, enstaka pappersförtunningar eller små hål med någon bokstavs förlust. Enstaka mindre fläckar och en lagning i yttre marginalen i spalt 54 i årgång 1818. Bra svit med L. F. Rääfs exlibris.. Lundstedt Sveriges periodiska litteratur 1281. Sviten är komplett inklusive samtliga bihang och register. Utgivare var V. F. Palmblad och J. A. Stenhammar vilka tillsammans med L. F. Rääf, F. B. von Schwerin, H. S. Hartwich och J. C. Askelöf var tidningens ursprungliga delägare. Bland medarbetare märks L. Hammarsköld, P. D. A. Atterbom, P. A. Sondén och Samuel Ödmann. I sin självbiografi skrev Palmblad att de yngre medarbetarna med tiden skingrades och att svårigheter uppstod i att finna nya. "Redaktionen ägde också inga honorar att erbjuda, emedan avsättningen aldrig översteg 200 exemplar, men vanligast höll sig vid 150. Således funnos stora hinder för upprätthållandet av en sådan, endast från oegennyttigt nit utgången tidning." I flera brev till Rääf förklarade Palmblad tidningens bekymmersamma läge och ekonomi och att han redan 1816 ämnade "förkunna dödsdomen öfver tidningen". De ekonomiska problemen var en starkt bidragande orsak till att Palmblad och Hammarsköld svarade för de flesta av uppsatserna i de sista årgångarna. Tidningen uppgick 1825 i "Svea" då Palmblad också tillträdde som dess redaktör. I J. H. Schröders recension av "Iduna", införd i nummer 41-42 1814, lämnas stort utrymme åt L. F. Rääfs uppsats om vården av fornlämningar

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THOMAS JEFFERSON TO ENGLEHART CRUSE, REPLYING TO CRUSE'S LETTER REGARDING A DEVICE FOR BLOWING UP SHIPS]

      Monticello. July 23, 1813.. [1]p., plus integral address leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Reinforced or repaired at old folds, mostly with tissue. Minor loss at some folds, affecting a few letters of text. Some paper loss to address leaf, not affecting text. Lightly dampstained. Still quite legible. Good. A letter written by Thomas Jefferson during his retirement, in response to Englehart Cruse, who had sent him a letter and drawing regarding an invention for blowing up ships. As a well-known public figure, and an inventor and innovator himself, Jefferson was a likely target for many men pursuing hopeful new inventions and ideas. Englehart Cruse had a history of steam inventions, including applying in 1790 for one of the first patents, for his steam-powered mill (the first of its kind) in Baltimore. Jefferson writes, self-deprecatingly, that he is hardly an authority on this area and thus can offer no firm opinion on the feasibility of Cruse's invention. He thanks him, nonetheless, for sending the idea along. "Sir, I received duly your favor of the 3d and in it the description of your apparatus for blowing up ships, which I have considered and now re- inclose. My inland situation has made me the least of all men a judge of anything nautical. Mr. Fulton communicated to me the plan of his floating torpedo, which appeared to me plausible. I should think the same of yours, could I permit myself to form a judgment in a case wherein I am so ignorant. Not meddling at all now in the affairs of the government I return to you the paper because it would go better from yourself; and because too it is possible you may wish to obtain a patent for the invention, in which case it must go from yourself in the ordinary form. With my thanks for its communication, accept assurances of my respects."
