        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 A hitherto unpublished letter to his sister Pauline Périer-Lagrange.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.

        1813 Magna Britannia MAPS Illustrated Churches Castles Landscapes Scenery Lysons

      London : printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1813-22. - 1813 Magna Britannia MAPS Illustrated Churches Castles Landscapes Scenery Lysons &#147;Magna Britannia&#148;, was an ambitious topographical and historical survey published by the antiquarians Daniel Lysons and his brother Samuel Lysons in several volumes between 1806 and 1822. It covers the counties of Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Cheshire, Cornwall, Cumberland, Derbyshire, and Devon. Unlike other similar works published in the 17th and 18th centuries, Magna Britannia remains of value today because the Lysons brothers included content on topics such as population, manufacture, and commerce. They were also far less preoccupied than many antiquarians with coats of arms and pedigrees, and did not overstate the grandeur of the counties, as local topographers were apt to do. This set includes 100&#146;s of double-page and full-page engraved plates, folding plates and, maps. Many of the plates are hand colored! Some of the illustrations include: &#149; Map of Bedfordshire &#149; Stone Stalls in Luton Church &#149; Plan of Toternhoe Castle &#149; Map of Berkshire &#149; Architectural Ornaments in Avington Church &#149; Map of Buckinghamshire &#149; Ancient Stained Glass in Chesham-bois and Chetwode Churches.

        Histoire de la guerre d'indépendance des Etats-Unis d'Amérique ; traduite de l'Italien, et précédée d'une introduction par L. de Sevelinges. Ouvrage orné de plans et cartes géographiques.

      Paris, J.G. Dentu, 1812-1813, - 4 vol. in-8, [6]-XC-409, [4]-593, [4]-603 et [4]-550 pp., avec un portrait-frontispice de George Washington, sous serpente, et 12 cartes et plans en dépliant, demi-veau havane, dos à larges nerfs ornés de guirlandes dorées et de fleurons à froid, tranches marbrées (rel. de la Restauration). Première traduction française (l'originale italienne était parue dès 1809), avec les cartes reprises à l'édition française de la Vie de Washington par Marshall, qui n'avait pas été un grand succès de librairie. En dépit de son importance - c'est la première synthèse sur la Guerre d'Indépendance -, l'ouvrage ne connut sa première traduction anglaise qu'en 1820. Carlo Botta né en 1766 à St-Georges en Piémont, mort à Paris en 1837, fut d?abord médecin (il travailla notamment en tant que médecin militaire dans l?armée italienne), puis mena une carrière politique en France (il faisait partie du Corps législatif pendant les Cent jours) avant de se voir décerner le poste de recteur de l?Académie de Nancy. Il remplit les mêmes fonctions à Rouen jusqu?en 1822. C?est parce que son approche de l?histoire était influencée par son expérience d?homme politique et la connaissance des enjeux de son temps que l?on a pu le comparer à son illustre prédécesseur, Guichardin pour lequel écrire l?histoire revenait à comprendre les enjeux du présent. Sabin, 6819. Bel exemplaire.

        Leonard Covington

      May 27, 1813. Autograph Letter Signed <I>"Leo. Covington,"</I> 3p, 7.75" x 12.5", front and verso. Huntsville, May 27, 1813. Integral leaf addressed to his brother, <I>"Alexander Covington Esq./Washington (MT)."</I> MT was Mississippi Territory. In part, <I>"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…"</I> Covington has penned in a column on the lower left of the third page: <I>"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."</I><br /><br /> 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.

Entire front page and two columns on the second page publishes New Hampshire’s first-term Congressman Daniel Webster’s January 14, 1814 speech in the House of Representatives on a bill to encourage enlistments after America’s first attempt of the conquest Canada. The Madison administration’s supporters in Congress had overwhelmingly defeated an amendment to the bill which would have restricted the enlisted troops to defending U.S. territories and frontiers, indicating that an invasion of Canada was still planned. It is easy to see how Webster came to be known as the Great Orator. In this speech, he discussed his initial opposition to the War of 1812. <I>“Badly as I think of the original grounds of the war, as well as of the manner in which it has been hitherto conducted, if even now, failing in an honest and sincere attempt to procure just an honorable peace, it will return to measures of defense and protection, such as reason, and common sense, and the public opinion all call for, my vote that not be withholden from the means. Give up your futile projects of invasion. Extinguish the fires that blaze on your inland frontiers, establish perfect safety and defense there, by adequate force. Let every man that sleeps on your soil, sleep in security. Stop the blood that flows from the veins of unarmed yeomanry, and women and children. Give to the living time to bury and lament their dead, in the quietness of private sorrow...”</I> Henry Cabot Lodge in his 1883 biography “Daniel Webster” notes that this speech <I>“is the first example of the eloquence which Mr. Webster afterwards carried to such high perfection.”</I> The same issue quotes from “Bonaparte’s Speech” given by French Emperor Napoleon I on December 19, 1813, on his <I>“splendid victories.”</I> September 2, 1814 (News). <I>“Authentic Account of the Capture of Washington [originally published in the “Baltimore Patriot”]...Friday Evening, August 26, 1814...At Georgetown the president met his lady, she having left the city only half an hour before him, having remained with great composure at the president’s house, until a messenger brought her the tidings, that the British were within a few miles of the city...at nine o’clock on Wednesday evening, s signal gun was discharged, the President’s house, the capitol, and many other public buildings were at the same moment in a blaze which continued nearly all night...”</I> September 16, 1814 (Editorial). <I>“Will Mr. Madison and the ‘supereminent Mr. Gerry resign? No. – What, then, must be done? Mr. Madison is old; he is without ability for the times which he has produced; he has little or no influence; he is not wanted, and is not feared. There must be a scape-goat for the party. They have tried one secretary and another, until it is plain they must make a bolder push. – They will impeach Mr. Madison...”</I> September 23, 1814 (News). <I>“The Fort being warmly besieged at every angle, continued the cannoned till the fleet drew out to their line of safety, two and a half miles.

        A grammar of the Arabic language, according to the principles taught and maintained in the schools of Arabia.

      Calcutta Printed by F. Dissent. at the Honourable Company's Press 1813 - First edition, pp. [xii], xix, [i], 705, [i], woodcut device in Arabic on title, several leaves folding. Modern half calf, marbled boards, red morocco lettering piece. Rare. This volume 'forms a complete treatise in itself, since it exhausts the Science of Arabic Inflexion' (Preface). The intended second volume on Arabic syntax was never published. 'Matthew Lumsden (1777 &#150; 1835), orientalist, was the fifth son of John Lumsden of Cushnie, Aberdeenshire, and a cousin of Sir Harry Burnett Lumsden (1821-96), army general. After education at King's College, Aberdeen, he went to India as assistant professor of Persian and Arabic in the College of Fort William, and in 1808 succeeded to the professorship. In 1812 he was appointed secretary to the Calcutta Madrasa, and superintended various translations of English works into Persian then in progress. From 1814 until 1817 he had charge of the East India Company's press at Calcutta, and in 1818 he became secretary to the stationery committee. 'Owing to ill health Lumsden left India on leave in March 1820, and travelled with his cousin, Thomas Lumsden, through Persia, Georgia, and Russia to England. An account of this journey was published by Thomas Lumsden in 1822. Lumsden returned to India in 1821. In 1808 he received the degree of LLD from King's College, Aberdeen. He died at Tooting Common, Surrey, on 31 March 1835.' (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Mexico City: , August 23, 1813. Mexico City, August 23, 1813. Large foio sheet, 56 x 44 cm, on stamped paper, a royal proclamation from the King of Spain, here transmitted through the Viceroy of New Spain, Mexico, concerning the opening up royal and public lands that are not being used, i.e. farmed, to private ownership. Presumably another effort to enrich the chronicaly overextended royal treasury. Considering that the proclamation was issued in the midst of the Mexican struggle for independence, and that it covers all the overseas possessions of Spain, and that Spain was trying to shake off the Napoleonic yoke, the situation must have been dire indeed. Calleja was the next to last Viceroy of New Spain. Only 1 copy is listed on OCLC, at the Univ. of Penssylvania. A quite rare bando, folded but in excellent condition, with the rubric of Calleja himself and the signature of his secretary.

        SENSE AND SENSIBILITY

      1813. A Novel. In Three Volumes. By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice." The Second Edition. London: printed for the Author, by C. Roworth... and published by T. Egerton, 1813. Original light reddish-brown muslin cloth with printed spine labels. "Second Edition" of Jane Austen's first published work, which like the first edition ("By a Lady," two years earlier in 1811), was published at her own expense. It took two years for the first edition to sell out, but in 1813 it was helped out by the popularity of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE -- with the result that the second edition of each was published in October 1813. "The text is believed to have been revised by the author; there are some major differences... and many minor changes" [Gilson] -- thus this second edition constitutes the "definitive edition," i.e. the text the way the author wanted it at the time of her death in 1817. This second edition was still being advertised by Egerton in November 1815 -- at which time Egerton was advertising a "New Edition" of this novel -- but there wasn't one; Egerton was instead being a bit "creative" in trying to unload his unsold copies, inasmuch as the author was then quitting him for the publisher John Murray. Austen received a S&S royalty payment from Egerton as late as March 1817 (she died four months later), but there was no further printing of SENSE AND SENSIBILITY until 1833, when Bentley included the novel in his series of Standard Novels.~The primary binding for these three volumes is blue-grey paper-covered boards, with printed labels that differ very slightly from those of the first edition (-- see examples in Gilson). Regarding this "second edition" Gilson states that "Copies in original boards appear for sale only very rarely," citing only two such copies in 1930 and "no record of sales of copies in original boards in recent years." This set is certainly in its original binding, and has those precise labels, but is in a light muslin cloth that is a good example of the English binding style adopted in the late 1820s and early 1830s. Since this clearly is these sheets' first binding-up, our opinion is that this constitutes a publisher's remainder binding from those first years of cloth bindings: undoubtedly there were still some sets of sheets not yet bound up after all those years, and whatever publisher then owned them wanted them gone before the arrival of some new edition (Bentley's) onto the market. So: this set is not in the primary binding of paper-covered boards with labels, but it IS in its original publisher's binding of some years later (with those same labels) -- far more desirable than volumes which were simply rebound by some owner.~Condition: First and foremost, the edges of the leaves of these volumes remain uncut (untrimmed) -- further bolstering the fact that this is the original binding-up. All three half-titles are present; the only leaf lacking (verified by a Quaritch cataloguer some time back) is the final blank leaf in Vol I. There is minor wear at the spine ends, but without any sort of repair there; the spines are a little faded (as one would expect with this color), and the original spine labels have slight edge-wear not affecting lettering. The Vol I endpapers have a thin strip of matching paper at the gutters; the endpapers in the other two volumes have only minor cracking. Glued to the Vol I front endpaper are a couple of old catalogue descriptions of other copies. For volumes still in their original binding some 190 years after the leaves were first bound up, this is remarkable condition. Gilson A2. Housed in a custom clamshell case with leather labels. Provenance: Vol I bookplate of Augustine Birrell (1850-1933), the barrister, politician, and author -- who became Chief Secretary for Ireland for the period 1907-1916 (in which post he was praised for enabling tenant farmers to own their property, and for extending university education for Catholics, but he resigned following the Easter Rising).
