        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.

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."

A collection of Joanna Southcott’s last writings. Nine volumes, from the same printer, same writer (s) , bound together, including: “The book of wonders, marvellous and true” 1813; “The second book of wonders, more marvellous than the first”, 1813; “The third book of wonders, announcing the coming of Shiloh: with a call to the Hebrews, from Isaiah xi, ‘And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. ’ Revelation xxii. 16, 17, ‘I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. ’ Here is the call to the Jews, to answer, how they will expect the branch, without the root, whom they cut off, and set at nought” 1814; “The fourth book of wonders: being the answer of the Lord to the Hebrews”, 1814; “The fifth book of wonders: announcing the event having taken place, which was promised in the fourth book should be in May: with a further explanation of the four former books ; also an answer to the address of the Rev. James Hearn, Curate of Brixham, Devon; and to the mockery of others”, 1814; and four pamphlets: “Copies of letters sent to the clergy of Exeter, from 1796 to 1800, with communications and prophecies put in the newspapers in 1813”; “Wisdom excelleth the weapons of war: and herein is shewn that judgments are the strange works of the Lord, but mercy His darling attribute”, 1814; “A communication sent in a letter to the Reverend Mr. P. In 1797, with an explanation thereon now given”, 1814; “Prophecies announcing the birth of the Prince of Peace”, 1814. All publications “Printed by W. Marchant, Ingram Court”, and end on this note "The above taken from Joanna Southcott's mouth, by me, Ann Underwood. " Nine publications by Joanna Southcott (1750-1814) , prophet and writer, who started the Southcottian movement with her phrophecies, gaining many adherents from Richard Brothers after his arrest: “One of the most significant of her London converts was Jane Townley, who not only invited Southcott, in April 1804, to become part of her household, but also did all she could to promote Southcott's writings and cause, including providing her maidservant, Ann Underwood, to act as Southcott's accomplished and devoted amanuensis. With the steadfast assistance of Foley, Sharp, and others, the three women became the nerve centre for the Southcottian movement, which generated an astonishing degree of interest, correspondence, and debate regarding Southcott's prophetic claims. Between 1801 and 1814, Southcott published some sixty-five pamphlets, totalling almost 5000 pages; moreover, her unpublished manuscripts amount to twice the number of pages in print. By one conservative estimate, a total of 108, 000 copies of her various works were published and circulated from 1801 to 1816, making her one of the most popular writers of her time (Hopkins, 84) . One reason for the immediate appeal of her texts is their unique mix of apocalyptic optimism with down-to-earth narratives about everyday life, which she converts to spiritual account. … In 1814 Southcott carried the claim to a new level when she announced that she was about to become the mother of Shiloh, the name given to the expected divine incarnation. The revelation was made explicit in The Third Book of Wonders, Announcing the Coming of Shiloh (1814) , and Prophecies Announcing the Birth of the Prince of Peace (1814) , which collected extractions from earlier writings that seemed to anticipate this new revelation. … After Southcott's death the movement splintered and prophets of Shiloh proliferated, among which John Ward's Shilohites and John Wroe's Christian Israelites were the most prominent. A core of her inner circle kept the faith quietly, remaining loyal to Southcott's work, as signified by their protection of the ‘great box’, which contained the sealed prophecies that were to be opened some time in the unspecified future by the bishops. ” (Oxford National Biography, 2004) . Bound in half calf with marbled boards, with gilt title on spine. Subjects: Prophecies. Southcott Movement – Prior to 1815. OCLC lists less than 23 copies per each of these publications included in this bound collection. Light wear to leather. Light foxing and light soiling to a few pages throughout, overall, fresh and clean. Very good + condition. (KH-1-46) .
