        Neueingerichtetes Gesang-buch: enthaltend eine Sammlung (mehrentheils alter) erbaulicher Lieder, nach den Hauptstücken der christlichen Lehre und Glaubens eingetheilet

      Philadelphia: Gedruckt bey Conrad Zentler, 1813. Very good. 12mo. viii, 538 [24] pp. Bound in original smooth calf, catches (on upper cover) and clasps in perfect condition, textblock evenly brown as is true in all copies on account of the paper stock; early ownership inscription dated 1832 inside upper cover, on final blank leaf a few early pencil inscriptions. Preserved in a 4-flap lig-free case. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF AN EARLY AMERICAN BINDING by an unnamed workshop associated with the Philadelphia printer Conrad Zentler. Our binding is distinguished by the fact that the smooth calf covers, catches, and clasps are preserved in extraordinary state. We now know of 4 identical bindings of Zentler's 1813 "Gesang-Buch" (currently with Classic Books & Ephemera, followed by William H. Allen and Poor Man's Books). Whereas the aforementioned are likewise on the market, they are all defective. As for the text, this is an important edition of the Schwenkfelder hymn-book, namely the second. "It is essentially an abridgment of the edition of 1762. It contains 695 hymns, of which 45 are not contained in the first edition. Numerous copies still exist" (SOURCE: A.A. Seipt, "Schwenkfelder Hymnology and the Sources of the First Schwenkfelder Hymn-book Printed in America (1909) p. 34, no. XXXIV. Shaw et Shoemaker, 29737. Botte & Tannhof, First Century of German language printing in the United States of America, 1988. The AAS online catalogue wrongly calls for "26" unnumbered pages at end, an impossibility. The unnumbered pages are contained within two gatherings (signed "Zz" and "Aaa") each consisting of 12 leaves.

        Autograph Manuscript (unsigned).

      The British poet laureate (named 1813), one of the famed "Lake poets," cranked out lengthy "serious" poems galore ("Thalaba," "Madoc," "Roderick," etc.), but it is for anthologized short pieces such as "After Blenheim" and "Stanzas Written in My Library" that he is remembered, as well as for his nonfiction and letters. Unsigned AM, 1p, 6" X 7½", n.p., n.d. Very good. Slight soiling. Partial transcript of a letter by one "J. Asgill," entirely in Southey's hand. Reads in part, "And while I am thus fighting with Death & Hell, it looks a little like foul play for Flesh and Blood to interpose themselves against me. But if any one hath spite enough to give me a jolt, thinking to falsify any faith, by taking away my life, I only desire them first to qualify themselves for my executioners by taking this short test in their own consciences: Whoever thinks that any thing herein contained is not fair dealing with God & Man, let him -- or her -- burn this book, and cast a stone at him that wrote it." A fascinating if cryptic item. Thus far we have not been able to identify the context of this interesting statement, but it certainly warrants further research. Comes with a handsome 5¼" X 7½" vintage steel engraved portrait of Southey.

        Daily National Intelligencer, 1813--1868 (62 volumes)

      Washington, D.C.: Gales & Seaton, 1813-1868. Washington, D.C.: Gales & Seaton. 1813-1868. A collection of 62 bound large folio volumes consisting of 59 volumes of the Daily National Intelligencer (published daily except Sunday); and three volumes of the National Intelligencer (triweekly edition). Owned and edited by Joseph Gales, Jr., in partnership with his brother-in-law William W. Seaton, the Intelligencer provided the nation with accurate and detailed reports of governmental activities (including debates and speeches, President's messages, proclamations, etc.), along with daily articles, reports, editorials, etc, on the most important events and issues of the day. According to The New York Times (reporting on an incident during the War of 1812): "... so powerful was its influence that when Gen. Ross, in command of the British troops, entered the capital after the unfortunate affair of Bladensburgh, his first inquiry was not for the Capitol, the President's house, or the departments, but for the National Intelligencer office, and it was the first establishment demolished, causing a short cessation in its regular publication."Primarily a political newspaper, the Intelligencer served as the voice of the Madison, Monroe, and J. Quincy Adams administrations, and it continued to serve as the voice of the Federal Government until the election of Andrew Jackson, when the newspaper switched to the Whig party. It was printed in four pages (typically five columns to the page). Most other newspapers from throughout the country took their coverage of national politics and government directly from the Intelligencer. The collection includes several special reports and speeches issued as supplements, and an extra sheet printing James Madison's President's Message on the threat to the Nation during the War of 1812. Also included is the first newspaper printing of the Monroe Doctrine (December 3, 1823), and the first appearance of Robert Owen's Discourses on a New System of Society.The collection contains a near complete run of daily issues published from January 1, 1813 (Vol. 1, No. 1) up through the end of December 1820 (a total of 17 volumes, lacking only about a dozen single issues); followed by 34 nonconsecutive volumes of daily issues dating from January 1, 1821 through the end of June 1864 (each individual volume contains about six months of daily issues); and a complete run of daily issues published from January 1, 1865 up through the end of December 1868 (a total of eight volumes). Also included is a three-volume complete run of the triweekly edition published from January 7, 1858 up though the end of December, 1860. The collection lacks the years 1850-57, and 1861. All 62 volumes are bound in contemporary half-leather and marbled paper over boards, ranging in size from 13" x 20" to 22" x 27" (as the newspaper was issued in multiple larger formats over this 55-year period). The daily issues are bound chronologically in unnumbered volumes with varying time spans (about six months).Ex-library with small printed bookplates and/or manuscript presentations on the front pastedowns. Several volumes also include binder's tickets. Wear to the leather spines and board edges, most volumes with tears to the spine backs and detached or partially detached boards, a few volumes with intermittent damage to one or two issues at the front or back, overall good or better. The first 47 volumes (spanning the years from 1813-49) bear the gift presentation of William Canby, a prominent Delaware Quaker and friend of Thomas Jefferson. Most of the daily issues from this period have his son's name (James Canby) as the subscriber's name written in manuscript on each daily issue.An historically important and very rare survival, providing contemporary, day-by-day accounts of the nation's most important news and events. A detailed list of the months contained in each volume, along with but a few highlights from among the countless speeches and debates, articles and reports, is available upon request. .

Bentley, \i Blake Books 435E. *With loosely inserted related ephemera, including a copy of the article by Essick & Paley from \i The Book Collector identifying the different editions. Blair's poem was originally published in 1743. Sixty years later, Robert Hartley Cromek commissioned from William Blake a series of illustrations for a folio edition of \i The Grave to be published in 1808. Cromek then arranged for the engraver Lewis Schiavonetti to reproduce Blake's drawings, thus infuriating Blake, who had believed that he was to do the engravings himself. In 1868 John Camden Hotten published the first facsimile of one of Blake\rquote s illuminated books, \i The Marriage of Heaven and Hell .\i The firm's publishing records show that Hotten issued an edition of \i The Grave in 1870 - probably intended as a facsimile of the 1813 edition, as the imprint and date of that edition were not changed. The present copy conforms to that edition.

        Series of Documents and Letters Signed.

      Various places: 1794-1813 - 7 documents, 6 signed by Napoleon using the various signatures adopted through the course of his life, the other with an important autograph addition in his own hand. The six documents signed preserved in a blue morocco-backed cloth box, the first letter preserved in an individual custom made red morocco folder. In very good condition. An excellent collection of seven letters from Napoleon I, giving a sweeping overview of the Emperor's life from 1794, soon after the siege of Toulon, where he first came to prominence, until March 1813, just six months before the catastrophic battle of Leipzig. The letters give an interesting insight into the development of his signature, ranging from "Buonaparte", to "Bonaparte", and the later "Napoleon", "Napol" or hurried "Np". They are attractively presented in a specially-made blue cloth album with blue morocco spine with gold lettering. The first letter, with the lengthy autograph ending, is in a separate red morocco folder, as befits the most important letter in the group. All the letters have a translation and description on the facing page of the album. They are described below: 1). The first letter in the group, unsigned but with an important autograph addition in Napoleon's hand at the end, dates from January 1794, soon after the end of the siege of Toulon where the young artillery general first made his mark. Here we find Napoleon still an ardent republican and acknowledging his Corsican roots. Glowing reports of his abilities and leadership were sent back to Paris by Augustin Robespierre, younger brother of Maximilien Robespierre, head of the all-powerful Committee of Public Safety. Writing to General Montfort, Napoleon orders him to go to St. Tropez in order to examine the state of the artillery in the town and the surrounding area. In his final instructions, written in his own hand, Napoleon instructs Montfort to set up a "gril a boulets rouges", literally a grill for red-hot shots, and to set up an oven for the same, about which he would write later with an explanation of the advantages of such weapons. The "boulets rouges" were cannonballs which were heated prior to being fired, so that they would cause maximum destruction not only on impact but, depending on where they fell, by setting fire to the surrounding area. These were primarily used in naval battles in the hopes of not only damaging enemy ships but also burning them, and would have proved particularly useful when defending France's Mediterranean coast. 2). Four months later, whilst in Nice, Napoleon writes to Citizen Chautrou with his earliest form of signature, "Buonaparte". Writing to Citizen Chautrou, Napoleon enclosed a decree [not present] from the "Representative of the People" ordering Chautrou to Nice to work with him, bringing with him all necessary material to organize a bureau of "dessins", literally "drawings". This was almost certainly a topographical bureau, which would, in later years, become an essential part of Napoleon's service when planning his campaigns. The letter has a near-intact red wax seal by the signature. 3). This is followed by a letter written in 1799, signed "Bonaparte". Napoleon had changed the spelling of his surname well before his marriage to Josephine de Beauharnais in 1796, adopting the French spelling of Bonaparte. Napoleon arrived in Egypt in June of 1798. He had long had what amounted to an obsession with Egypt and the Middle East, and arrived there well prepared. He had read and studied enough of the Koran to impress Egyptians with well-selected quotes from it, and had a firm grasp of the cultural nuances of the region. The Egyptian campaign was ostensibly a stepping stone to the French conquest of India, where the British, though powerful, faced fierce opposition from Indian leaders, most memorably from Tipu Sultan. In fact, Napoleon most likely saw it as another step in cementing his reputation, while the Directoire in France found it very convenient to have this very capable,

        Journal of a voyage made by members of the Church Missionary Society, to West Africa (Sierra Leone Mission), kept by the Rev. Leopold Butscher's wife Catharine Butscher.

      1813 - Autograph(?) manuscript, written in a highly legible hand. 68pp incl. paper cover (65 written pages). Dated entries from 17 November 1812 to 27 February The Church Missionary Society was founded in 1799 and first entered West Africa in 1804. Various records show that Leopold Butscher was active as a missionary there from as early as 1806, and was invited to England in the spring of 1812, to give a report on his work. While there he married Miss Catharine Wilson: the author of the journal in question, which records their journey back to Africa, along with seven other members of the society. Mrs Butscher?s journal is a remarkable first person account of the voyage; describing the Brig. Charles? passage from Falmouth Harbour on 11 December 1812 to where it was wrecked some 20 miles south of the Gambia River on 5 January 1813. Although the voyage began precariously, as Capt. Graham insisted that the Charles leave Falmouth in the midst of a gale, they enjoyed largely clement weather until an incident on the night of the 5th. The journal captures the moment when the Charles hit a rock in full sail, with Mrs Butscher writing that the resultant noise ?will never I think be forgotten by me? She recorded the nervous days following the collision, detailing encounters with Mandingo-speaking natives and an attempt to free the ship from the rocks. With the Charles wrecked, the CMS members were taken to Goree on a native vessel, anchoring on the 16th. While the women stayed ashore to recuperate, Mr Butscher, along with other members of the crew, set out on the Brig. Neptune, to reclaim cargo from the wreck. Upon his return on the 27th Mrs Butscher made an eight-page transcription of her husband?s account of the journey: including vivid descriptions of Capt. Graham?s murder by the natives and an unsuccessful attempt to retake the Charles. The remaining entries can be broadly separated into two types. The first describe life on Goree and yield insight into the native cultures of West Africa. In one example Mrs Butscher fails to overcome the culture shock aggravated by a touring dance from the mainland (Senegal), made in celebration of killing a wolf. The second type of entry regards the Butschers? struggle to reclaim their possessions. Of these passages, those that tell the tale of Catharine?s piano are the most interesting, as it was held by the King of Combo, who ?daily amused himself ? by drawing a stick across the wires? When it was finally returned, it was ?fit for nothing but fire wood? The journal ends somewhat abruptly on 27 February 1813, with the Butschers putting their luggage aboard a Spanish bark, headed for their original destination: Rio Pongo. Although they arrived there safely, the Butschers, along with five other members of the original missionary group, would die of fever in Sierra Leone: Catharine on 19 May 1815 and Leopold on 17 July 1817. We cannot find anything to suggest that the journal was ever published. A number of letters from Leopold Butscher (a few of which were forwarded by Catherine) to various correspondents are present in the Church Missionary Society Archive at the University of Birmingham, UK.

        Description of the Retreat, an institution near York, for insane persons of the Society of Friends. Containing an account of its origin and progress, the modes of treatment, and a statement of cases.

      York: printed for W. Alexander and sold by him 1813 - 8vo., xx + (1) + 22-229 + (1)pp., engraved double-page plate of the North Front of the Retreat, two double-page engraved plans, the plates with some dampstaining and foxing, mainly marginal, intermittent slight foxing throughout, old (19th century) ink stamp in title margin of 'Medical Staff Library', the stamp repeated on verso of frontispiece, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, fairly recently rebacked, a sound but not beautiful copy. First edition: 8vo. issue. Garrison Morton 4925.1. Hunter & Macalpine pp.684-690. Norman cat. 2109. Osler 6561. Wellcome V, p.306 (the 4to. issue). A classic in the history of European psychiatry and care for the mentally ill. Notably it gave the first detailed account of the methods and results of a mild, humane system, in the first purpose-built institution of its kind. In contrast to the notorious closed-door policies of other insane asylums, the Retreat, a Quaker asylum, welcomed the observation of its humanitarian methods, the success of which was praised throughout England and the Continent. 'This book by a layman did more to improve the care and treatment of the insane in asylums and indirectly also to stimulate the development of psychiatry than many a 'scientific' tome written by a physician. . The pioneer work of the Tukes opened a new chapter in the history of the insane because of the avowed aim to accord them the dignity and status of sick human beings, and to substitute self-restraint based on self-esteem induced by a mild system of management for the debasing and brutalising coercion and restraint of the 'terrific system'.'

        Voyage a Surinam et dans l'intà rieur de la Guiane, contenant La Relation de cinq Annà es de Courses et d'Observations faites dans cette Contrà e interessante et peu connue; Avec des Dà tails sur les Indiens de la Guiane st le Nà gres . Traduit de l'Anglais par P. F. Henry: Suivie du Tableau de la Colonie Française de Cayenne.

      1813 - Paris, Buisson, An VII de la RÃ publique [1799]. 3 text volumes in 8vo, atlas volume in 4to; contemporary calf-backed marbled boards (atlas volume in modern Portuguese pastiche); pp. [4], viii, 410, [2, advertisements]; [iv], 440; [iv], 506, [2, errata]; [ii, 2], 44 plates engraved by Tardieu the Elder (a few folding); only light rubbing to bindings; a few minor spots only here and there, 2 plates with marginal abrasures; a very good set with the plates in deep dark impressions on very clean paper. First edition of P. F. Henry's augmented translation (first, 1796), with the Supplement au voyage a Surinam by Daniel Lescallier (1743-1822) with over 230 pages printed here for the first - and last - time, on Dutch and French Guiana. In 1772 Stedman volunteered for an expedition sent out by the States-General to subdue the revolution in Surinam (or Dutch Guiana): the result of his five years in Surinam was the Narrative, 'one of the most detailed descriptions ever written of an eighteenth-century slave plantation society [.] His intimate dealings with members of all social classes, from the governor and the wealthiest planters to the most oppressed slaves and maroon rebels, gave him unique opportunities to describe the full panorama of colonial life - the mistreatment of slaves by sadistic masters, the courage of the rebels in battle, the daily lives of Indian and African slaves, and exotic flora and fauna' (ODNB). Whilst in Surinam, Stedman married Joanna (1757-1782), 'a beautiful fifteen-year-old mixed-race slave' (ibid.), with whom he had a son, Johnny. The work is illustrated with plates after drawings by Stedman, which include one of Joanna, who is described by the author thus: 'Rather taller than middle size, she was possessed of the most elegant shape that nature can exhibit, moving her well-formed limbs with more than common gracefulness. Her face was full of native modesty, and the most distinguished sweetness; her eyes, as black as ebony, were large and full of expression, bespeaking the goodness of her heart' (2nd English edition, 1813, I, p. 94). Sixteen of the plates were engraved after William Blake (whose skill so impressed Stedman, that the two men became close friends), and they 'have long been recognized as among the best executed and most generally interesting of all his journeyman work' (Keynes 98). Each of Blake's arresting engravings (here re-engraved) successfully blends his own inner vision with Stedman's. The often-reproduced slave tortures (pl. 11, 35, 71) convey extraordinary power and pathos, the wonderfully humanoid monkeys and the skinning of the giant anaconda (pl. 18, 42, 19) sprightly humour' (ibid.). Daniel Lescallier had been governor of French Guiana from 1782 to 1791, travelled widely on diplomatic missions in the Caribbean (his actual role was that of an army and navy spy), and witnessed the impact of the Haitian Revolution on French Saint-Domingue. In October 1797 French Guiana had been incorporated into the French Republic, which made information of the new territory sought after by the central government and public. Stedman's abotitionist tendencies and radical contacts fitted as well into the revolutionary climate of France in the 1790s. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Agnese Drama semiserio in due Atti... Agnese eine ernsthaft-komische Oper in 2 Aufzügen. Klavierauszug vom Capellmeister A.E. Müller... Pr.6 Reichsthaler. [Piano-vocal score]

      Leipzig: C. F. Peters [PN 1126], 1813. First German edition (possible First Edition). Eitner VII, p. 278. OCLC no. 67975974, 23493298. IMSLP (plate numbers for Peters). Agnese, to a libretto by Luigi Buonavoglia after Filippo Casari, was first performed in Parma at the Villa Scotti, Teatro Ponte d'Attaro, in October 1809. "Agnese is Paer's last opera semiseria and the one in which comic and serious elements are most skilfully integrated. Its situations have been perceived as anticipating those of such intense psychological melodrammi as Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor and Verdi's I masnadieri which became common after 1830; other authorities have noted a similarity in Donizetti's Il furioso all'isola di San Domingo, as both there and in Agnese the mad scene involves the participation of a 'buffo' - clearly a throwback to the 18th century when male dementia was regarded as entertaining rather than tragic." Scott L. Balthazar in Grove Music Online.. 2 volumes. Oblong folio. Vol. 1: Black cloth-backed boards. 1f. (recto title, verso cast list in Italian and German), 3-87, [i] (blank) pp. Vol. 2: Dark brown calf-backed marbled boards with red and black morocco title label gilt to upper. 1f.

Yellow label with "Müller's Musikalien-Leih-Bibliothek. 4253." laid down to upper board of Vol. I; Müller's handstamp and name in a contemporary hand to blank lower margin of title. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped; minor dampstaining to upper portion of Vol. 2; hinges splitting. Minor internal wear and soiling; some foxing; Vol. 2 slightly dampstained at blank upper margins of first ten leaves.

        NARRATIVE, OF A FIVE YEARS' EXPEDITION, AGAINST THE REVOLTED NEGROES OF SURINAM, IN GUIANA, ON THE WILD COAST OF SOUTH AMERICA.

      J. Johnson, London 1813 - Two quarto (8-1/2" x 10-1/2") volumes bound in early calf-backed marbled boards with calf corners, contrasting gilt-lettered morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, rebacked. A graphic account of the slave rebellion in Dutch Guiana, 1772- 1777, illustrated with 81 engravings (including 3 folding maps) after drawings by the author by William Blake (13 with an additional 3 attributed to him), Bartolozzi, Benedetti, Barlow, and others. Sabin (91075) called this "one of the richest contemporary accounts of a plantation society in the Americas." According to the DNB, Stedman's narrative is "one of the most vivid indictments of slavery that have been penned." Stedman also depicts the social and natural history of the area in detail, and many of the engravings illuminate his writings on these subjects. Blake's work, among the finest that he did for hire, are primarily powerful portraits of slaves. Occasional light, small stain but very clean overall.

        Robert Fulton, inventor of the world's first successful commercial steamboat, demonstrates his gifted mind through an incredibly rare signed portrait sketch

      n.p., 1813. 7" x 8". "A 7"" x 8"" sketch, captioned ""Wm. McIvers"", a heavy-set fellow in a double-breasted coat. Signed, ""R F"" on the bottom right edge of the leaf and dated ""1813"" underneath the signature.Born in Pennsylvania, Robert Fulton was regarded as the mastermind who created the world's first successful commercial steamboat named Clermont. As an engineer and inventor, Fulton was constantly sketching, planning, and blueprinting new ideas with pen and paper. He had even famously sketched the first practical submarine called ""Nautilus"" as he was commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte to do so. Aside from being known for modernizing steamship technology, Fulton had other hobbies, art being one of those hobbies.This sketch comes from a very rare archive of Fulton sketches, similar ones have sold at auction for over $4300."

        Catalogues of the birds, shells, and some of the more rare plants, of Dorsetshire. From the new and enlarged edition of Mr. Hutchins's history of that county . With additions; and a brief memoir of the author

      Printed by and for J. Nichols, Son, and Bentley, [London 1813 - (19 1/2 x 12 inches). Text in two columns. iv, 110pp. Engraved portrait, 24 engraved plates on 13 sheets. Uncut. Some foxing. Later cloth-backed grey paper boards. Large-paper issue of the first illustrated edition of a rare catalogue of British birds, plants and shells. Richard Pulteney received his doctorate in medicine from the University of Edinburgh in 1764, before serving as the personal physician to the Earl of Bath. Following the Earl's death, he resided and practiced in Blandford, Dorset. Besides membership in a host of medical societies, Pulteney was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, as well as a Fellow of the Linnean Society. Indeed, he was an early promoter of Linnaean taxonomy, and authored the first English biography of Linnaeus in 1781. His cabinet of specimens, noted particularly for its shells, was donated to the Linnean Society following his death in 1801. The first edition of 1799 was privately-published by Pulteney with few copies printed. An inscription in an extant copy by the editor of this new edition reveals that copies of the first edition were further destroyed by fire: "The first Impression of Dr. Pulteney's Catalogues was printed in 1801 [i.e. 1799], but never published, the whole having been destroyed by the fire, at Mr. Nichols's printing office [in 1808]. I have been enabled to make considerable additions in this second impression, from communication by various scientific friends, and from my own obervations." Rackett's revised edition was the first to be illustrated, containing a portrait of Pulteney, a plate depicting 17 shells titled Melbury Fossils (engraved by J. Cary after Mary Foster), and 23 engraved plates of shells on 12 sheets. The plates numbered I-XXIII are new engravings of those by De Costa in his Historia Naturalis Testaeorum Britanniae, with several additions, depicting over 200 species.
