        The Grave, A Poem. Illustrated by twelve Etchings executed by Louis Schiavonetti, from the Original Inventions of William Blake. 1808.

      London: Bensley for Ackermann, 1813 [i.e. 1870]. 4to, (2), liv, 42 pp. With a portrait frontispiece, etched title, and 11 plates all with tissue guards. Blind-stamped black cloth, rebacked with black cloth lettered in gilt,. Third quarto edition, printed from the same plates as the 1813 edition but actually issued by or for John Camden Hotten in 1870. Of this version Essick wrote: “I've also seen the true 1813 text and plates in a very similar cloth binding with just a few differences in the blind stamping but very much the same style and period. My theory on that is that Camden Hotten, who produced the 1870 issues, not only got the copperplates from Ackermann (with the Spanish inscriptions for de Mora) but also some remainders of the impressions and letterpress and bound these up in a slightly different (just the blind stamping and perhaps the cloth color or weave) fashion. He removed the Spanish on the coppers and had an engraver restore the 1813 English inscriptions, then printed for both the portfolio and the 1870 issue of the text with the engravings... Bentley lists the 1870 issue in Blake Books, but I don't believe he lists the portfolio issue of the plates only. I have a vague recollection, however, that he did note it in one of his later checklists of publications in the Blake Quarterly.”Bentley, Blake Books, 435E.

        Développements de géométrie, avec des applications à la stabilité des vaisseaux, aux déblais et remblais, au défilement, à l'optique, etc. pour faire suite a la géométrie descriptive et a la géométrie analytique de M. Monge. Théorie. ET Applications de géométrie et de méchanique, à la Marine, aux Ponts et Chaussées, etc. Pour faire suite aux développements de Géométrie

      Vve Coucier & Bachelier, Paris 1813 - Demi chagrin rouge moderne. Deux ouvrages en deux volumes in quarto (252 x200 mm), xx-373-(1) pages et 11 planches / xxxv-(1 bl.)-330 pages et 17 planches (pl. 1 et 8 interverties) Dos légérement passé Édition originale des deux ouvrages contenant les principaux travaux de Dupin en mathématiques. Dupin a laissé son nom au "théorème de Dupin" sur les systèmes orthogonaux de surfaces, à "l'indicatrice de Dupin" et à la "cyclide de Dupin". La théorie des cyclides a donné lieu à des développements importants à partir des année 1860, grâce aux travaux de Darboux, mais aussi d'Amédée Mannheim, professeur de géométrie descriptive à l'école polytechnique . De nos jours les cyclides sont utilisée en CAO (conception assistée par ordinateur). La page de titre des "Développements" porte la signature de Mannheim. DSB [IV, p.257 : " His 'Applications de géométrie et de mécanique (1822) ' was a continuation off the 'Développements ' but placed greater stress on applications. (.) The 'Développements contains many contributions to differential geometry, notably the introduction of conjugate and asymptotic lines on a surface, the so-called indicatrix of Dupin, and "Dupin's theorem," that three families of orthogonal furfaces intersect in the lines of curvature. A particular case Dupin investigated consisted of confocal quadrics. In the ' Applications ' we find an elaboration of Monge's theory of deblais et remblais -- and, hence, of congruences of straight lines, with applications to geometrical optics. Here Dupin, improving on a theorem of Malus's (1807), stated that a normal congruence remains normal after reflection and refraction. He also gave a more complete theory of the cyclids as the envelopes of the spheres tangent to three given spheres and discussed floating bodies"], Kolmogorov [in. Mathematics of the 19th Century, pp. 6-7 :" Charles Dupin (1784-1873), had a brillant career in differential geometry. His works were long delayed in publication, since he was a naval officer and went on long sea voyages. His works were published in two books, 'Développement de géométrie (Paris 1813) ' and ' Applications de géométrie et de mécanique (Paris 1822). At the age on 16, by considering the envelope of the family of spheres tangent to theree given spheres, he arrived at the concept of remarkable surface -- the cyclid (later named after him), both of whose families of lines of curvature are circles (published in 1804). Around 1807 he proved a beautiful theorem that came to be known by his name, asserting that the surfaces of a triorthogonal system intersect in lines of curvature. This made it possible to interpret the lines of curvature of an ellipsoid, which had been studied by Monge, as the intersection of the ellipsoid with families of second-order surfaces confocal with it. To study the curvatures of the normal section of surfaces he introduced the indicatrix, which also now bear his name, and which makes it possible to visualize and study the behavior of the curvature of a normal section of a surface as the cutting plane is resolved about the normal. This approach provided a classification of the points of a surface that are not planar points into three types: elliptic, hyperbolic, and parabolic. The geometric meaning of umbilical points and asymptotic lines also became clear (the latter term was introduced by Dupin). He was also the first to introduced the concept of conjugate lines (with respect to an asymptotic grid), and he obtained a geometric proof of Monge's theorem that a surface consisting of umbiblical points is a sphere"], Belhoste [art. Charles Dupin et l'héritage de Monge en Géométrie p.8 : "Finalement, il faut attendre 1822 pour que Dupin donne un nom aux surfaces à ligne de courbure circulaire, les cyclides, et une démonstration de leur existence et de leurs principales propriétés. Le texte, publié dans les 'Applications de géométrie et de méchanique' (pp.200-210), se présente comme une digression au quatrième mémoire de ce re [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Account of What Appeared on Opening the Coffin of King Charles The First in the Vault of King Hnery the Eighth in St. George's Chapel at Windsor on the First of April, M DCCC XIII

      Nichols, Son, and Bentley, Red Lion Passage, Fleet Street, London 1813 - Large format, 24pp (19 numbered pages) book/pamphletwith navy blue paper covers which look to be on the same paper stock as the rest of the book and would appear to be the original wraps. This is one of quite a few books from AWF Fuller's collection, which we acquired from his descendants. As such, as with many in the collection AWF Fuller has inscribed his name and the date, 27 Aug, 1932 in the top corner of the ffep. Also on this page Fuller has written helpful some notes in light pencil about the book and it's origins. It reads: "This scarce pamphlet (the 1st edit.) which is also a large paper copy, was (2 words can't read) from the library of Dr. Howley, Bishop of London & Archbishop of Canterbury, 1828-1848. The Author was a friend of his & doubtless presented him with this copy." Underneath the Author's name Fuller has also written the note in light pencil: "& later President of the College of Physicians." There is some edge wear to the pages, perhaps even rodent nibbles in the bottom back fore edge corner, which has resulted in some having a slightly raggy appearance. Not withstanding that this book is a unique piece and with great provenance, therfore highly collectable. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Manuscript copy of An Essay on the Plan of Salvation... plus the published version of it (1813)

      Baltimore: Neal, Wills and Cole, 1813. First printing. Hardcover. Good. Book is a first printing, 1813, tall 8vo, old dark brown calf, 416 (3) pp, about very good. Manuscript, which we think is Shinn's own fair copy, either in his hand or in a scribe's hand, is bound in dark green leather, small quarto, 527 pp plus 2 pp. Table of Contents and miscellaneous pages of notes. Binding of this manuscript is worn, spine leather lacking, boards worn, contents in very good overall condition. As the title page of the manuscript version has the publication information and as the text hews closely to the published version and contains very few holograph corrections, we think this was either the fair copy submitted to the publisher or the copy that Shinn kept for himself, either in his hand or that of a secretary or hired scribe. Provenance: old house in Canonsburg in Washington County, PA. Shinn (1781-1853) was an important pioneer American Methodist minister, recognized as early as age 18 by the Baltimore Conference of the MEC, who spent a number of years in the Baltimore area and also preached on the Monongahela circuit, and did much pioneer preaching on the southern Ohio circuit. In 1829 he broke off from the Methodist Episcopal Church and founded the Methodist Protestant Church and held the highest rank in that Church. The year of publication of this book (1813) saw the death of 2 of his children and that, compounded with the death of his wife a few years later, led to a 'loss of reason' according to his biographers, that he didn't recover till the 1820s. Another son, Thornton, was born in Pittsburgh in 1825, so there were ample occasions for the manuscript of his Essay on the Plan of Salvation to end up in the Pittsburgh area.

        Autograph letter signed ("Chapuis").

      [Milano], 7. XI. [1813]. - 4to. ¾ p. With autogr. address. A hitherto unpublished letter to his sister Pauline Périer-Lagrange. On the point of leaving Milan, he invites his sister to wait for him on the way to make the trip with him to Paris. "Mes affaires me rappellent à Paris, ma chère amie. Il est possible que je parte le 12 novembre, mais c'est le 15 au plus tard que je me mettrai en route. Je suppose que tu attendras un moment plus brillant pour faire le voyage de Paris. Cependant, si tu as la possibilité de le faire, je suis d'avis de partir, vu que l'occasion est chauve, comme dit don Japhet d'Arménie. Si tu n'as rien de mieux à faire, rends-toi à Cularo le 15 nov. Tu ne m'y attendras pas: 3 jours au plus. Sinon viens à Bourgoin le 16 ou le 17. J'embrasse tendrement ton mari. Je ne resterai que 20 à 24 h. au plus à Cularo; depuis la mort de notre pauvre grand-père, je n'ai plus de coeur dans cette ville. | Chapuis". - As soon as Stendhal arrived in Paris at the end of November 1813, Stendhal was to be charged with the defense of his native city Grenoble, a mission which proved impossible considering the superiority of the coalition forces. Like many high-ranking Napoleonic officials, Stendhal found no place in the strictly diminished government of the Bourbon Restoration under King Louis XVIII, and became a Napoleon's nostalgic and liberal, an oppositionist. He once more went to Milan and became the literary man and writer as we know him.

        Leonard Covington

      May 27, 1813. Autograph Letter Signed "Leo. Covington," 3p, 7.75" x 12.5", front and verso. Huntsville, May 27, 1813. Integral leaf addressed to his brother, "Alexander Covington Esq./Washington (MT)." MT was Mississippi Territory. In part, "You will perceive from my Date that I have given Nashville the go-by. I have been induced to this by the considerations that there was a saving of a Day or two's ride, tho' the accommodations are inferior. We have now a Distance of 200 Miles to Knoxville for which we shall set out on tomorrow & God willing, will reach it by the 2nd or 3 proximo, when we shall have made the distance of nearly 700 Miles & will have a journey left of only about 500…If you should be able to obtain tolerable terms as to times of payment the sine-qua-non must net upon the Cotton payments…provided a Cotton Contract cam be made. You might accede to short payments if prepared for as to Greenleaf, I predicate the above calculations upon his receiving a payment in the Negroes we talked of & at any rate…You need not be told how anxious I am to hear the result of your County Election of which I hope you have by this written me on to Washington…From both the agencies Choctaw & Chicasaw and shall wrote again from Knoxville & every post town on my route. I return to the election again. - you will find by the subjoind list that the 3 County Elect are all Meadites and are as scabby a set as could have been chosen, all descent people…Col. Purkins spared no pains for Mead and although the candidates had determined to admit none but legal votes yet there was considerable intrigue (in the way of transferring Land titles) to the disadvantage of Lattimore but of all these things our Friends W & F will tell you…" Covington has penned in a column on the lower left of the third page: "For Congress/Lattimore 291/Mead 268/Read 9" and at the lower right: "Moore 374/McVay 329/McCartney 318/Winston 258/Walker 242/Neal 102/Miller 42/Edings 23/Wyatt 15." The docket in the margin of the address leaf notes "On the way to Washngn/City & Canada/Congressional Elector/Lattimore." William Lattimore represented Mississippi Territory as a Delegate in Congress from 1803-1807 and 1813-1817. Leonard Covington had represented Maryland in Congress from 1805-1807. From a "Memoir of Leonard Covington" published by his grandson, Benjamin Leonard Covington Wailes in 1861: "Taking leave of his family, Col. Covington left his home on the 13th of May, 1813, and entered upon a long and fatiguing journey on horse back to the seat of government, a large portion of the route through a wilderness country occupied by Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians. On his arrival at Washington he found the aspect of public affairs very gloomy, the friends of the administration despondent and dejected, and the President [Madison] confined to his apartments with sickness attributed to disappointment and mortification. Reporting himself to the Secretary of War, he received orders to join his regiment at Sackets Harbor, where he arrived on the 28th of July… Shortly after his arrival at Sackets Harbor, Colonel Covington received a commission of Brigadier General, to which he was nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate, Sunday the 1st of August, 1813, that body from the urgency of public affairs being in session on that day. Assuming this command, he employed himself assiduously in preparing his brigade for service in the approaching campaign." From a November 10, 1813 report Secretary of War John Armstrong: "It is due to his rank, his work and his services that I should make particular mention of Brigadier General Covington, who received a mortal wound through the body while animating his men and leading them to the charge. He fell where he fought, at the head of his men, and survived but two days." In General Orders issued by Major General James Wilkinson on November 15th, it was announced that "The remains of the patriotic, gallant Brigadier General Covington are to be interred tomorrow with all of the honors which his rank and service give him title to." Mortally wounded in an attack on Canada at the Battle of Cryslers Farm, November 11, 1813, he died at Frenchs Mills (now Fort Covington), N.Y., three days later. His place of burial at Sackets Harbor, N.Y., is now known as Mount Covington. Generals Leonard Covington and Zebulon M. Pike were the only generals to die during the War of 1812. Cities in Kentucky, Georgia, and Louisiana and a county in Mississippi are named in his memory. "Field of Glory/The Battle of Crysler's Farm, 1813" (1999) by Donald E. Graves tells the story of the battle on the St. Lawrence which marked the end of the most serious attempt to that time to invade Canada. The three horizontal folds on the first leaf and two folds on the second leaf have been repaired with transparent tape. The one fold not repaired on the second leaf is almost completely separated. Darkly and clearly penned, the letter itself is in fine condition.
